Requiem for Turkey, the Final Chapter

 

There have already been six-thousand arrests made since the abortive coup. Three-thousand Judges and prosecutors as well as three-thousand officers of varying ranks and soldiers all from lists supposedly gathered as a result of the coup. There will be mention of how these individuals were all cooperating and coordinated by Fethullah Gulen from Pennsylvania, USA. Sure, an aging Imam in Pennsylvania organized and commanded step-by-step including telling the pilots of F-16 fighters who had missile lock on President Erdogan’s jet while he was known to be onboard and never fired a single shot, some coup. This coup smells, plain and simple, smells. You do not produce a list of a complete list of judiciary and military personnel within twenty-four hours, if even that long as the list was obviously already prepared. The threat of such a purging may have triggered the coup attempt before the planning was complete if the coup was actually a subversive group. Had the coup been an attempt to return to actual free and open elections and a return to secular rule and bringing an end to the Muslim brotherhood agenda being enacted by Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Freedom and Justice Party, then it would have been well worth supporting. Had that been the case, then constitutionally the entire military should have supported the coup. The fact that this was not the case is another accusation against Erdogan as he has flushed much of the military hierarchy in his last purge and with the current purge all will be loyal to Erdogan who will now wield absolute power.

 

The purge being executed in Turkey would have made Stalin proud. Erdogan will have little if any opposition left in all of Turkey once he completes gathering names from those already arrested and the completion of his purge has removed every vestige of secularism and of all Islamic opposition securing Erdogan President for life status. He and his Freedom and Justice Party, a political party that neither supports freedoms or justice, will rule Turkey with an unopposable outright majority for the foreseeable future. This was Erdogan’s intended desires even when he made his agreement with Fethullah Gulen in order to come to power in his initial election. In each election after this agreement Erdogan has done all in his power in order to attain an unopposable majority even if it, like the last elections, took a second election and the elimination of opposition to attain that majority. Erdogan has been anything but an angel in office often playing power politics and taking any and all steps as required, including intimidations, executions, assassinations and outright military pressures suppressing certain sectors of the society from participating in elections in order to reach absolute power. Absolute power without the need of any compromises has been the desired end which Erdogan has pursued ever since his first election and now that he has attained such he is not about to permit any challenge to his powers. This cements Erdogan as the singular choice for those who desire Sharia and spurn the ideals of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and his dream of a secular Turkey. It has been Erdogan’s desire from day one to impose Islamic law, Sharia, and he is closer than ever to accomplishing exactly that by ridding himself of all opposition, both secular and Islamic. Such a turn of events has been a long time coming and expected eventually by all who know Turkish politics and Erdogan’s desires from the beginning. He has succeeded where Egyptian President Morsi failed by being cautious and taking things one slow step at a time. That time has now passed and he will enact Sharia in rapid succession as he no longer need fear a challenge from any direction and should anybody be fool enough to oppose Erdogan and his Islamization of Turkey will find themselves either in a cell permanently or hanging from a rope. President Erdogan has attained what he always desired, absolute power which will in time corrupt him absolutely and thus be his failing as Sharia will be the instrument of his downfall.

 

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Accused Coup Leader Imam Muhammd Fethullah Gulen

 

Turkey had an opportunity to survive Erdogan and his Islamist desires but such a move by the military as required in the Turkish Constitution was repudiated and prevented by President George W. Bush and the European Union allowing for Erdogan to purge the General Staff of opposition while the current lists go deep within the officer ranks and lists many middle level officers and senior NCOs which will lead to more names under torture and other forms of distress leading to a witch hunt the likes of Turkey has never seen. In the coming weeks every and anybody who even the slightest might ever stand in opposition of Erdogan will be purged from Government, the military and anyplace else where influence might rise against him. This is the second purging executed by Erdogan and he is hoping the final time. The bad news for Erdogan is that the purges never reach an end once they have started as there will always arise those who will oppose his rule and some might even rise to the position of posing an actual threat. At this moment in time Fethullah Gulen holds this honor and anybody affiliated with him is in dire threat as Erdogan is intensifying his aim to remove any of those who are aligned with the man who was originally responsible for placing Erdogan in power. As the original person with whom Erdogan shared the reins of power, Fethullah Gulen has now become a threat which Erdogan is no longer willing to permit to exist as Fethullah Gulen could potentially stand in opposition to Recep Tayyip Erdogan any point in the future and actually pose a real risk to take power and end Erdogan’s efforts to subvert all of Turkey under Sharia. Gulen is an Imam who also supports democracy and universal rights, a kind of idiosyncratic personality who supports a reformed Islam which subverts itself to universal freedoms and equal rights. This purge is designed to put down any vestige of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and the secular ambitions subverting them permanently placing all of society under the crushing oppression of Sharia where all independent thought and acts are punishable by severe and often life threatening punishments. Erdogan is shutting down all opposition securing Turkey in much the same manner as Stalin shut out all opposition in Russia within months of taking the reins of power in Soviet Russia. Ataturk is done and all who dreamed that the secular Turkey was protected by the military and would continue forever is done, dead and over. It actually was mortally wounded the last purge which was facilitated by President George W. Bush and the European Union which insisted that should the military ever move to remove a government, a responsibility placed with them by the Turkish Constitution, then Turkey could forget ever being permitted to join the European Union because no normal democracy relies upon the military to protect the realm. Well, Turkey was not a normal democracy and did rely on the military to protect Turkey from Islamic power grabs as Erdogan has slowly enacted since he first took power. Now even that avenue to correct the Islamization of Turkey has been decimated by Erdogan and is now an enforcement of Sharia and Islamic sovereignty over secular governance.

 

This should pose a threat to NATO, a threat which has long existed dating from the initial election of Erdogan. He started his slow but inexorable march towards Sharia from the very outset of his Presidency. His final aim was to alter the Constitution such that it would not only allow for Islamic Sharia governance but welcome such as the desired end all of any government. Soon it will be forgotten that Turkey had dreams of joining the free world and enjoying the advancements of science and technology as the sheath of Sharia falls over the land. Soon simply memorizing the entire Quran will be the ultimate conclusion of a successful education. The Quran will become viewed as the ultimate source for all knowledge as Sharia is incompatible with modernity. What is frightening is the fact that Turkey is a member of NATO which worked as a check on Russia during the Cold War. Such is no longer the situation with Russia standing their Mediterranean fleet docked along the Syrian coast in the Alawite areas which remain loyal to Bashir al-Assad and thus far not under direct threat by the Islamic State or other Islamist forces and are provided with support both from Iran and if needed Russia. Turkey has lost its importance to NATO and with its current threat to become another Sharia ruled Islamic nation should, as we have pointed to before, be dropped from the NATO rolls. The European Union (EU) has thus far refused entry to Turkey and should be glad they had such luck. We refuse to give the EU credit of foresight in not permitting Turkey entrance. We are not even assured that Turkey will not be permitted entrance into the EU as they start their expansion into the Middle East. Once Turkey has been permitted EU membership the ‘refugee’ problem will explode as Turkey allows free access to any and every Arab and Muslim desiring entrance to Europe, Germany in particular. Allow Turkey into the EU and they would become the welcome mat for all peoples desirous of leaving the poverty and backwardness of their Middle East and North African hellholes. From an EU affiliated Turkey these ‘refugees’ would be permitted free travel throughout the EU nations and be permitted settling wherever and whenever they desire and collecting the guaranteed wage proffered by most EU members.

 

The EU already desires entering the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) as explained in their releases to the media and academia. We have discussed these plans in an article titled The European Union Actually Planning Empire and figure the EU plans on surrendering to Middle Eastern pressures. With Turkey on the fast track to Sharia and an end to freedom as the member states of the EU likely remember, the addition of Turkey as a first step to incorporating the Middle East and later Africa into EU membership, then the EU population had best prepare for having Sharia as the basis of their laws. As a member of the EU or just a member of NATO, Turkey holds a prestigious spot; especially when one considers that Turkey has the second largest military in NATO after that of the United States. As such Turkey demands a certain amount of respect but only as long as Turkey maintained a respect for individual rights and freedoms. No matter how the media and others wish to spin the new direction which Turkey has planted itself, those found to favor Erdogan should be watched with additional scrutiny. It is highly doubtful that there would be any changes in how the United States views Turkey as Erdogan has been best of friends with Obama as they are with Hillary through the Clinton Foundation and contributions made to influence Hillary when she was Secretary of State. These influences will likely spend a large amount in campaign contributions, both legal and otherwise as Hillary believes herself above the law; something made abundantly clear at her Senate hearings where she prevaricated, dancing around any truth until the lies became the facts in many a media report. Unfortunately for most Americans, this has become what they expect from the media and the editorializing of the news stories to fit their political leaning tainting many a news story until it is unrecognizable by the truth. Both ends of the political spectrum suffer this affliction.

 

Such twisting, messaging and reworking of facts will inevitably be the only permitted truth out of the media in Turkey. This, once it is not necessarily their fault as the Erdogan controlled government, courts and military; will own the truth and decide what the truth is for the people of Turkey and for the world for good measure. Erdogan knows that his citizens, at least the urban citizens, have access to the world media and thus his spin on reality must therefore become the only story permitted. He, even with the Muslim Brotherhood’s assistance, will find that accomplishing this task will be far more difficult than preventing the poorly executed coup from success. The obvious fact that Erdogan was at the cusp of executing a purge may have pushed those supporters of a truly democratic Turkey or possibly the supporters of Erdogan’s chief rival, Fethullah Gulen, who may have struck a deal with the democracy forces interested in reestablishing Ataturk’s secular Turkey dreams and aspirations for progress, into acting earlier than they had planned facing Erdogan’s imminent purging of their ranks. Whether this was a well played trap or a rushed into execution actual coup will make absolutely no difference down the road a piece. The only item which will matter is, who will survive the sweeping broom of Erdogan and the Islamists as they clean house in the judiciary and the military and likely soon the population at large. The next step is to take those they have rounded up and get public confessions from the most recognized names amongst them. This will definitely be followed by the extracting of names of others who may be of a similar mindset as the coup participants and the others on the prepared lists. This housecleaning was very obviously already planned and just as the coup may have been rushed into execution, so have the cleansing of the Turkish government, military and eventually the public itself.

 

We are witnessing the end of Turkey as it had been known and the birth of Turkey as the hoped rising leader to assume its rightful place as the leaders of the Islamic world. Turkey’s military is both large and well equipped with top of the line NATO equipment, arms and hardware. They have a modern Air Force equipped with F-16s, F-15s as well as other supporting aircraft. Their ground forces have top of the line main battle tanks and armored support. The infantry have modern weapons systems and are supported by highly accurate artillery. The size of the Turkish military is such that they will hardly miss the three-thousand officers arrested in relation to the coup and could lose an equal number before there may be some residual effects. The real question is what will Erdogan do once he attains ultimate and absolute power? Will he use his military against the Kurds, the forces supportive of Bashir al-Assad, attempt a breaching of the Israeli blockade of Gaza to help his Hamas allies, or is Erdogan really planning on a second Ottoman Empire as he has stated in the Past? These questions have ramifications within Turkey, as well as throughout NATO, to Israel, Egypt, Iran, and Saudi Arabia. Erdogan has oft spoken of how he would be the right man to reestablish the Ottoman Empire as well as he has claimed the right to being the Caliph of the next real Caliphate which will be perched to spread Islam throughout the world vanquishing all other religions bringing every man, woman and child to bend and surrender to Allah. Sure that sounds crazy but one must bear in mind that it is solely Western Culture which has given up on world conquest, others still believe they were destined from birth to rule the world. Some such people holding to such insanities include but are not limited to North Korea’s Kim Jung Un, Russia’s President Putin, European Union and Germany’s Angela Markel, United States President Obama and presumed President Hillary Clinton, numerous institutions and financial giants, and of course the Grand Ayatollah of Iran and Erdogan of Turkey. This may sound absurd to you and me but it is real for these crazies who walk amongst us.

Talking Turkey

 

Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu surrendered once again to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and this time did so with his eyes wide open and not after being hoodwinked by United States President Barack Obama inviting him onto Air Force One where he already had Erdogan on the phone and handed the call to Netanyahu with likely the one word demand, “Apologize!” The demand was worded with a stern or else look on the American President’s face and a cold lifeless steely glare in his eyes. This time Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu not only gave another apology but sweetened the apology with twenty million dollars of surrender money to be paid to the families of the terrorists of the Mavi Marmara. There was the excuse of sending the gas pipeline through Turkey where it can be sent on to Europe. One can only guess how badly that will work out or how many times the pipeline will be cut and/or exploded very much like the gas line in the Sinai and of course every time it is blown to smithereens, Israel will rebuild it for free and resume gas deliveries which will likely have ten percent skimmed off the top for domestic use, once again free as the price of doing business. You lie with dogs you awake with fleas and possibly ear mites and other wonderful gifts. One can only wonder how we came by Erdogan. Perhaps the picture below will assist in the story which can be read here.

What is Israel going to say now about paying the survivors of terrorists, do as I say, not as I do? The moral high ground is lost. Some might ask what will the next deal include, naming a sports stadium after them or just a few roads and highways as is the practice of the Palestinian Authority. What does Israel gain by this kowtowing? We could not get appliances made elsewhere? As far as trade is concerned, anything we import from Turkey we could have built a factory here at home to build them or built one in Greece and likely made them for less and the Greek government would love the added work for Greeks facing horrific economic times. Why woe a terror master when we are trying to make friends with that particular terror master’s sworn enemies. Perhaps President Erdogan has promised to provide an avenue for purchasing Iranian pistachios as doing so directly is next to impossible, fortunately. Well, if we are going this far to trade with Turkey why not Iran as well? Is that the point where we finally find some principled stance and if so why?

 

This deal was blasted by all sides both within and outside the coalition. Thus far it has not destroyed the coalition but it does beg the question what else have we not been told? Yes, we did agree to permit Turkey to build projects in Gaza for including but not necessarily limited to a power generating station, a desalinization plant, a Hospital and who knows exactly what else. Turkey will want to rebuild the housing apartment structures destroyed in the past two wars. When doing so they will provide the Ace in the hole of effective human shields. There will be little possibility that Israel will be capable of firing back at rocket sites with Turkish workers working right beside them. Any hope for a military strike by the IDF will be neutralized unless Israel is willing to risk a military confrontation with Turkey. Turkey is a NATO member and by treaty anyone attacking a NATO member risks fighting the entirety of NATO which includes, Germany, France, Britain and most of all the United States. Does anybody believe that President Obama, and perhaps Hillary Clinton after him, would have even a single quam about answering a call from Turkey for protection from Israeli attacks on their personnel? We need remember that all of the Israeli fighters have friend or foe circuitry which prevents their shooting any friendly aircraft, a code easily provided the Turkish fighter aircraft making them invulnerable to the Israeli F15, F16 and even F4 Phantom firing computers making most of the Israeli Air Force aircraft inoperable against any NATO aircraft. That would really lead to a very bad day for Israeli Pilots and their Prime Minister and coalition government. Such a catastrophe would be wholly impossible for any Prime Minister to survive and one could only hope that the Likud Party could read the writing on the walls.

 

Further, once allowing Turkish workers into Gaza under the guise of building hospitals, schools, housing, a power plant or two, salinization plants and other accommodations, what would there be to prevent their assisting with tunnel constructions, bunkers, ammunition stores, new rockets with guidance software and systems? Will the inspectors be capable of telling if the software boards and systems apparently intertwined within the desalinization systems belong within or are guidance hardware and firmware with software loaded being disguised guidance systems to make rockets into guided missiles? Of course they would be hard pressed to tell and the final item necessary to make them work is a camera system and map such that they could use a simple inertial guidance checked through GPS and target identification with a simple camera. All of that could be programmed into a cell telephone which could also triangulate its position using known cell towers. All this and more could be smuggled into Gaza along with terrorist masterminds pretending to be Turkish workers not to mention the ability for communication between Hamas leaders outside of Gaza with those within Gaza.

 

Once the precedent has been set with allowing Turkish workers to perform necessary repairs and upgrades to the utilities and other infrastructure then how does Israel prevent the next party offering to restore power or rebuild homes, build a subway system, highways, and eventually rebuild the international airport to receive more assemblies and other needful items which are so required that they cannot be sent by ship. Perhaps they will want to build a large and powerful telescope for the Astronomy coursework at the college or university they will build and provide the professors who will teach the class. Of course when explaining how to aim and focus this huge telescope they will be forced to utilize items visible during the day such as taller buildings in Tel Aviv if it does not stand outside line of sight. With an additional classroom lesson they could learn the adjustments one need make such that a mortar round could be placed where the telescope is targeting as well as corrections to settings to make the mortars far more accurate. With university professor’s offices and classrooms in the same building Israel would not be able of destroying the telescope using a large hammer but would need a very precise and accurate nail to drive.

 

These have been but some of what Turkey could do and as a NATO member state Israel would be required to treat lightly wherever these Turkish workers were located. Their round the clock presence at the worksites and sightseeing in off hours and days and sleeping in precisely chosen locations which by a miracle are directly adjacent rocket and missile provisions structures and workshops will negate any Israeli military interjections. Israel has given up much of the high ground when it comes to honoring and supporting the families of homicidal suicide bombers and other terrorists slain in the heat of battle and from there it is not much of a step to paying the salaries of those imprisoned in Israeli prisons. Additionally, Turkey, or should we say Erdogan and his band of enablers have corrupted the Supreme Court and rest of the high courts and the military leadership such that there is little if any opposition to Erdogan’s whims. Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been known to carry the water for the Muslim Brotherhood (Arabic: جماعة الاخوان المسلمين‎‎ gammāʿat al-ʾiḫwān) or simply al-Ikhwan, al-Qaeda through the al-Nusra Front, even the Islamic State, as Erdogan supports all who share his desires to rid himself of Syrian former dictator al-Assad, as well as Hamas. Adding to this confusion has been Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s history of having worked with Iran as well as Saudi Arabia and Egypt when the Muslim Brotherhood held sway even advising former Egyptian President Morsi that he was moving towards Sharia far too quickly, advice not heeded as Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood misjudged their people who were quite wary of relieving one dictator for another, this one religious and backed by the Muslim Brotherhood. Erdogan refuses to deal with Egyptian President Sisi demanding instead that the Muslim Brotherhood be returned their nation to run as they please, President Sisi has proven thus far immovable. Erdogan seems to flutter from one controversial relationship to the next without giving it a moment’s thought. He wears more hats than a circus clown and is reportedly treated as such even by those he has befriended. Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s life’s dream is to reestablish the Ottoman Empire and declare such the new Caliphate and himself as the Caliph himself. This dream would prove a nightmare for millions as Recep Tayyip Erdogan shows a complete lack of morals when pursuing any goal and nothing is beyond betrayal in this quest.

 

Perhaps in a moment of foolishness Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu believed he could trust President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and strike a deal which would prove lucrative in the future if not the present. Time will prove the validity of those ideas but the ideals sacrificed to form this deal were too many and too deep a cut into the Israeli heart. One need ask what is the final plan claimed to be at hand as the majority of Israelis know all too well that Mahmoud Abbas will not change his ideas nor his insatiable demands. He will continue to demand in Arabic his demand for the ancient lands of the Arabs to be returned to them. Abbas knows that the Jewish People have had a sizeable presence in Jerusalem seemingly since the beginning of time. So, knowing the Israelite claim covering five-thousand years to be valid he claims that his people who arrived in 637 to 666 A.D. actually have resided in these lands for the past nine-thousand years. He further claims they invented the proto-language Abbas calls the Palestinian-Canaanite language which they presumably invented the Palestinian-Canaanite language and alphabet centuries before the Israelites conquered the lands. As to erasing Israeli and Jewish history, this has been Mahmoud Abbas’s stock and trade. He wrote his doctoral thesis on a supposed relationship between Hitler and the Nazi elites and the Zionists which is all included in his presentations titled “The Other Side: the Secret Relationship Between Nazism and Zionism.” He presented the thesis at The Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Russian: Институт востоковедения Российской Академии Наук) which one may read about on WikipediA. The thesis is replete with references and quotes from sources since discredited but not before Mahmoud Abbas was warmly received and granted his Doctorate. Unfortunately for all within the areas directly and indirectly affected by this dreadful piece of Holocaust denial and pseudo-history, they are the poorer for having come in contact with it.

 

Abbas and Erdogan would make a great pair each supporting the other and exchanging specifically chosen lines consisting of double entendres mixed with outright lies. One could easily say Abbas and Erdogan deserve one another. Throw in an American President without a shred of decency worth mentioning; assuming such is even present on President Obama for the viewing, and you have the perfect set of people in place in order to offer up Israel in a demonic sacrifice filled with fire from nuclear weapons. Turkey might be a partner in just such a plan plotting right alongside them, they that are Iran and those with any plan, as long as it ends with Israel consumed in a nuclear fire. This would get Recep Tayyip Erdogan absolutely Joyous and President Obama possibly a second Nobel Prize, they would need a new award category, perhaps recognized the opportunity in this man but we all failed in realizing that promise, they could call it the almost realized the greatness expected of him award given to the individual who never realized that greatness or the total disappointment award, the Nobel Dunce Cap Award. The winner sits in a chair facing the corner while giving their acceptance speech. The award would be given once every decade making it one of the more coveted awards that Nobel would give. Perhaps we could suggest some who would have won this award .The award given between 1935 and 1945 could have gone to British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain for taking every wrong turn and delivering the victories necessary to prolong Hitler’s opportunity to build up his forces. Other recipients might have been Adlai Ewing Stevenson II, Richard Milhous Nixon and a host of others who were thought to have great expectations of then fell miserably short. Sports would likely give some strong candidates as there is many a college star whose sail lost all its wind upon entering the major leagues. Perhaps Prime Minister Netanyahu is also vying for such an award. He would get stiff competition from President Obama but a victory by either would require they credit the assistance from the other.

Once Again the Discussion is How to Satiate Mahmoud Abbas

 

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, a presumably apolitical position of honoraria, told reporters on Wednesday after his meeting with United States President Barack Obama that during discussions the American leader expressed strong, almost obsessive concern over the future of Palestinian Authority (PA) and its leader, chairman Mahmoud Abbas, the man President Obama apparently bases all efforts to attain peace upon and his being sated. Fears that this may be impossible, considering the light of the disconnect with Israel, was the President’s main concern. Remarkably the discussion with an Israeli leader through whom President Obama could deliver a message to Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu centered on fears for the Chairman of the PA, Mahmoud Abbas, and made his being satisfied and aided in preventing any damage which may threaten the continued ability for the PA to hold its power and control over the lands it has under semi-autonomous rule apparently, in President Obama’s world, is a problem Israel is responsible for preserving. The problem is that Chairman Abbas has recently and by all possible measures, been giving himself and the other officials plus his security personnel and at different but overlapping times made comments or orders of actions which have served to inflame the situation even further escalating the ongoing intifada which bothers the United States President, not.

 

The use of the hashtag {#so_what}, as we mentioned in yesterday’s article Stabbing Their Way to a State we also provided the Palestinian Media Watch {PMW} video half way down the article where a very young little girl who at every cue yells the hashtag, social media and publically chanted in the streets of ‘so-what’ as a response implying the necessity to continue the stabbing and vehicular assaults in attempts to make that seminal mass slaughter on the level of Paris if only the right conditions present themselves; otherwise they will continue to carry out solo attacks always with the hope that other Arabs who call themselves Palestinians in the area will join the attack making a chain reaction which leads to the general mayhem and more murders.

Where is the man of peace? The Pope’s Angel of Peace? The Europeans’ greatest hope to tame the Jew; to tame Israel, to correct the mistake from 1920, the promise from San Remo Conference which formalized the Balfour Declaration into International Law adopted by the United Nations under Article 80 of its Charter. End the place where a Jew can and will defend themselves with guns and aircraft and ships and tanks and live under their own government. Bring back the ‘Good Jew,’ the ‘Passive Jew,’ the ‘Defenseless Jew.’ The anti-Semitism has started to surface disguised previously as anti-Israel, meaning the government and not the Jews, just the rule of the only Jewish nation predominantly by Jews, that is the problem; or anti-Zionist, against the Jew standing proud of their state and actually willing to defend themselves and use the same weapons previously reserved for their betters, their oppressors who could assist the Jew in his being compliant, being behaved, tamed. This is what leads so many to make the differentiation between terror by Arabs against Jews and the terror, if targeted, to what are considered regular people, real terrorism as compared to the Arab Palestinians desperation which forces them to resort to violence. And who causes their desperation? Israel does, the Jews do and that is why the Jews deserve the terror aimed at Israel while any other terror is mad destruction beyond any reason against purely innocent individuals.

 

And what has been the most visual vision of the Prince of Peace, the Hero of Europe Mahmoud Abbas, he has declared every attack as blessed, every injured or killed Arab attacker as a Martyr, the blood spilled he claims is holy blood for the al-Aqsa Mosque. His perfidy is plain for all to see in this Middle East Media Research Institute {MEMRI} translates his words for all wishing to view the reality, the truth of their man of peace, this Mahmoud Abbas, or under his nom de guerre, Abu Mazen.

 

 

 

 

And more lies from the man of piece, this piece of land, that piece of land, every piece of land, just not peace over the lands so people can live normal lives, but then again, he does not know normal; he knows only lies and propaganda such as you murdered our innocent child. This innocent child committed an act of terror and suffered severe injuries but survived and was treated at an Israeli hospital as can be viewed below.

 

 

 

 

Mahmoud Abbas has made some of the most outrageous statements recently included but not limited to declaring that Israel had Jews who were ready to overwhelm the Muslims and enter the al-Aqsa Mosque and were preparing to conduct those Jewish Satanic services and making the al-Aqsa Mosque impure and desecrated. This broadcast came after his severe warnings about the so-called trampling the al-Aqsa Mosque by the Jews with their filthy feet which as can be seen in the following viewed in the video below.

 

 

 

 

Additional effrontery comes from the mouths of the elite of western democracies, the nations who claim to be multi-cultural, multi-ethnic and the most openly accepting of all peoples. This definition is apparently only applied to those minorities in the population much as women (53% of the population and the leading gender sensitivity victims) who have their priorities such as they are, yet all sorts of people, even ones you would less suspect, will be the leaders in denouncing one peoples solely because they hold the oldest of all libels, anti-Semitism.

 

Some of such prima facie evidence of blatant anti-Semitisms by simply calling out Jews or judging Israel by a separate set of criteria came fast and furious after the Friday the 13th attacks of last November leading off with United States Secretary of State John Kerry who commented about the horrific murders saying, “There’s something different about what happened from Charlie Hebdo, and I think everybody would feel that. There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of – not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, okay, they’re really angry because of this and that. This Friday was absolutely indiscriminate. It wasn’t to aggrieve one particular sense of wrong. It was to terrorize people.”

 

But the American Secretary of State John Kerry was far from alone in his finding a separate set of rules for the Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Cacher terror murders from the Friday 13th terror murders from last month. Gérard Araud, the French Ambassador to the United States made a somewhat similar differentiation when he stated, “These are the foundations of our model of society that the terrorists seek to destroy: Yesterday journalists and Jews; now ordinary citizens whose only crime was to enjoy life on a Friday night in Paris.”

 

Another politician whose language presumably is more measured, we have another Foreign Minister, Margot Wallstrom, a Swedish Social Democrat who linked the Paris massacre to the Palestinian conflict by remarking, “To counteract the radicalization, we must go back to the situation such as the one in the Middle East of which not the least the Palestinians see that there is no future: We must either accept a desperate situation or resort to violence.”

 

Back in 1980 when a bomb exploded next to the Paris liberal Synagogue in the Rue Copernic, amongst those killed were three passers-by. Raymond Barre, Prime Minister at the time, suggested that the murderers hit the wrong targets when he said that it was “a scandalous attack which wanted to hit Jews who were in the synagogue and hit innocent Frenchmen who were crossing Copernic Street.” He added that these people were killed despite lack of any connection to “this issue” upon which author Claude Lanzmann called Barre an anti-Semite.

 

Reaching back we find a similar strain of anti-Semitism when in 2011 after a lone terrorist, Anders Breivik, killed seventy-seven people in Norway. The then Norwegian Ambassador to Israel, Svein Sevje, implied that Palestinian terror against Israelis is more justified than terror against Norwegians.

 

Allow us to have this closing video which is a combination of some pertinent and necessary commentary from across the board from Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to Denis Prager to Rania Fadel, a Stand With Us Volunteer to Danny Ayalon all discussing truths often left from the argument as these truths describe the realities on the Israeli side of the war zone. The world tends to discount the traumas and loss of security living within easy rocket range from Gaza and the Hamas, Islamic Jihad and sundry other Arab terror groups presumably now with Islamic State funded forces added to the ample funding from Iran, but the suffering and threat to their lives is just as real as are the actions of Hamas et al to the Palestinians as Hamas gains when there is death, destruction and carnage on either side, in Israel dead and homeless Jews and in Gaza dead and homeless Palestinians to parade before the obliging World Media who get out exactly the story Hamas demands from them to be permitted to report from Gaza. Unlike Israel where the media report openly and can question to the point of hounding any IDF general or Knesset Minister until they break and give a curt, sharp and short response as nerves and patience run out and then they have their news story while they report from Gaza what Hamas allows and nothing else or they face being thrown from a building of Arab stringers to banning their news reports from Gaza, thus everybody plays by Hamas’s rules and allows their editing so as to continue reporting. Our final video is below.

 

 

 

 

In summation we can easily witness that the Arab-Israeli, or Palestinian-Israeli, conflict is an intractable and impossible conflict to resolve. Where Israel has offered complete and viable solutions to the conflict; the Arab leadership, whether it is the Arab League or Yasser Arafat or Mahmoud Abbas, there can be no solution because all of these entities agree upon one truth, they favor a one state solution, an Arab state free of any Jews. Mahmoud Abbas repeatedly demands that any and all Palestinian lands will be Judenrein, emptied of any Jews. Abbas has also never hidden the fact that even were he to ever accept a two state solution, such an agreement cannot include the end to all conflict as he has sworn to continue the fight until all of Palestine has been freed from the River to the Sea; he could not make it any more clear. He will only settle for replacing Israel, not residing side by side in peace and security.

In the mean time we can look around the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and observe the complete disaster which has replaced the old leaders often for anarchy, chaos, death and suffering. Syria and Iraq have dissolved into a Sunni against Shiite war with the added Baathists behind Bashir al-Assad fighting to regain his rule. In the north of both Syria and Iraq we find the Kurds who are deserving of that homeland promised them by the British at the end of World War I. This was before oil was discovered around Mosul making for a reassessment of promises and an estimate of who could permit the best possible deal on that oil and as they already had a generous agreement with the Iraqi leaders of the age. Looking further westward we find Tunisia holding to their fingernail grip on free and open governance, which gives them an advantage over Libya which has completely devolved into tribal factions each with their own territories. Back in the Middle East we have Turkey which has been steadily devolved from the secular and dynamic governance where the keepers of the democracy were the military into a strongman Islamic governance with cronyism as its political power all vested in a man rather than in the law. Turkey has devolved from a land ruled by laws to one ruled by a ruthless dictator who is removing any and all opposition. This dictator’s name is Recep Tayyip Erdogan whose rule was in danger of being challenged and his government dissolved by the military back in the early 2000 to 2005 range but President George W. Bush and the European Union demanded that the military which was tasked by the Turkish Constitution with guarding the democracy from extremists from performing their task as it was claimed that no modern Western nations had such rules and if Turkey was ever expecting to be permitted entry into the European union they should refrain from such tawdry affairs. The Turkish military took their message to heart and Erdogan the dictator soon followed ending the chance that Turkey would remain a modern and secular nation. Now it is just a matter of time before Erdogan cements his rule at the expense of Turkey’s future, especially as he has replaced these General who had attempted to replace Erdogan and his government. These Generals have been forced to retire or otherwise been drummed from power leaving all the power now completely resting with Erdogan. He has neutered all of the upper officer’s corps replacing them with his own chosen lackeys protecting Erdogan from being removed from power or challenged in any manner much to the dismay of many a secular Turk. Though there are very few who may still fight the good fight, I doubt their chances for success. Such is the spreading mood outside Turkey where there had been hope for freedoms but is lost wherever the Muslim Brotherhood is capable of advancing their form of Sharia. The die has been cast and it is just a matter of time before we realize what was cast; now it is but a matter of time before we see the results we shall reap the ills spread across MENA.
