Threat Striking Israel from All Sides and Beyond

 

Israel, and her people, are hoping to get through the rest of the summer and the fall without the necessity of a war on any front. Recent threats from Hezballah in the north in Lebanon and from Hamas in the south in Gaza are making that possibility looking less likely. With Israel also apparently frozen politically without an actual government, a war is the last thing Israelis need. They will be heading back to the polls again this September and the polls predict the same outcome with no party able to form a coalition. With our internal problems, the last thing we need is an external problem, but that is not within our control. So, what exactly do these threats contain?

 

Hezballah has made statements recently that Israel is preparing to start a war with Lebanon over Hezballah. This is the claim they have made before launching rockets or firing grenades at passing Israeli patrols along the border as well as kidnapping soldiers who are then more often than not executed. Still, Hezballah offers to return the soldiers captured if Israel surrenders her northern lands or releases every terrorist in our country club version of a prison or any of a number of impossibilities knowing that eventually Israel will come to take their soldiers back. The last time they kidnapped soldiers from a patrol vehicle, they killed several others and claimed to have two alive Israeli IDF soldiers. That, in the end, proved to be a lie and the only question was were they ever alive in Hezballah custody, and if they were, exactly when and how did they die. Those were questions for which we never got an answer, just more threats. Further, Hezballah is directly controlled by Iran. This explains why there are Hezballah troops fighting in Syria as well as Yemen and operating a series of terrorist training camps within the Tri-border region of South America. Hezballah has become a terrorist army and will likely expand their operations as required by the Iranian Supreme Leader. In addition, should Iran face any problems concerning their nuclear ambitions, terrorist activities or be facing a confrontation with United States military forces, or have severe troubles with President Trump; the one item they have promised is at the top of their list is having Hezballah attack Israel to draw the media attention away from Iran. This would present the mainstream media with a dilemma, do they report that President Trump is pressing Iran into an unnecessary war or do they blast Israel for responding and defending herself from Hezballah.

 

Then there is Hamas. Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar stated in a meet with Gazan residents, “I call on Benny Gantz to remember how the IDF failed in its conflict with residents of eastern Gaza during Operation Protective Edge, when he was Chief of Staff. During the next conflict with Israel, we will rain hundreds of rockets in a single barrage.” Sinwar was reacting to comments made by Gantz, coleader of the Blue-White Party who had promised, “If necessary, we’ll frustrate its leaders and crush the region. We’ll act on the ground as much as we want.” The problem is that Hamas is also under the influence of Iran though Hamas also will act on their own volition. Proof of that was made evident with Hamas or Islamic Jihad having fired a rocket from Gaza Friday evening. Initial reports place the launch on Hamas. The rocket was heading for Sderot where it was intercepted by an Iron Dome battery. Another instance of an under two-hundred-dollar Hamas rocket being destroyed with a fifty-thousand-dollar interceptor. Such need for protecting Israelis is worth every penny, but this is also an economic battle Israel cannot win. Eventually Israel will be required to remove all the threats from her borders as no nation on the planet lives with such threats coming from both their northern and southern border.

There is also an internal problem which has been identified as Israel has lost her shining image of unsurpassed military might and abilities and thus no longer is feared by the surrounding terrorist forces. This was made evident for over a year with the regular rioting along the Gaza border and the launching of incendiary devices carried into Israel on kites and balloons riding the winds. These devices burned down hundreds of acres of farms, nature reserves, forests and towns across southern Israel. The Israelis residing in the Gaza border region cannot be expected to continue to live with such threats. Children from this region show signs of mental problems caused by anxiety, fear and the realization of actual threats making their word unsafe. Children should not be required to check that there are shelters at both ends of their soccer field before starting their game. Every activity a child performs is done with knowledge of the closest shelter and responds to the Code Red alarms by running to the closest shelter knowing they have under fifteen seconds to reach safety. Would any nation be forced by the world to have their children be raised in such an atmosphere of threats, deaths and perils? The obvious answer is of course not. But the world and media reporting on any confrontation between Israel and her terrorist neighbors as being unfair simply because Israelis are kept safe while Hamas endangers their people. The difference comes from the prioritization of the two area’s governing bodies.

 

Gaza is ruled by a terror regime whose main goal is to destroy Israel by whatever means are available, even, sometimes directly, at the expense and safety of the Gazan people. Hamas runs a dictatorial governance with their leaders chosen from the ranks of the terror organization. They claim to have a separation between their terrorist (military) and their civil government yet their recent appointment of Yahya Sinwar took their terrorist leader and made him the political leader. This is not separation between the two as his appointment was a marriage of the two supposed wings as they placed their government in the hands of their former terror chief. Of course, those nations who provide Gaza with aid will continue to claim they are simply assisting the political wing of Hamas and not the terror wing. Even after building material has been provided by the European Union at least three times and nothing was rebuilt yet somehow all the material disappeared only to be found in the form of infiltration tunnels into Israel. But this will not prevent the European Union or some combination of European government providing building materials because Gaza has still not been rebuilt. They will never stop and wonder why Gaza has not been rebuilt because they are giving these provisions to a good source which is killing Jews, or at least try really hard to do so.

 

There is a claim that Israel has lost her ability to place fear and trepidation into her enemies. Some call it lacking the quality of intimidation. We prefer to call it poor decision making at the highest levels and a large portion of the General Staff not on the same page as the majority of Israelis. If everyone who has said that the next time Hamas starts firing rockets into Israel in quantities on a daily basis, the IDF need be sent in with orders to wipe the place clean. Some phrase it differently and claim that we need to treat Gaza as we did in Biblical times. We are not sure they fully understand that the Biblical army would kill every person, man woman and child, and wipe out their herds of sheep, cattle, goats, horses as well as their poultry and all other holdings only allowing their fruit trees and fields to survive. We do not dare even consider such and neither should the government. We prefer giving every Gazan a choice between one of three options, also derived sort of from Biblical times. They can choose to live under our rule following the Noahic Code and honoring our laws, they can leave and start again elsewhere and we will not chase them down (as was the custom when you defeated an army you chased down and killed the survivors making retreating to reconsolidate impossible), or they can decide to make war at which time the fist mentioned Biblical threat became an option. We know that the leaders of Hamas would have to be exiled if not held and tried in court, but if they will leave never to darken our doorstep again, that should be sufficient. They should be made to understand that should they return that they would be targeted for assassination and if members of their family would also come to harm, it was their fault for returning. What would be in such a deal of the Gazan people? They would have clean water, electricity, sewage treatment and so many other improvements and economically there would be no comparison. Gaza would become productive allowing for the rule of law to protect along with an actual economy. They would be able to elect their local governments and have semiautonomous self-rule while remaining under Israeli rule. There would be one item which might be considered unfair, but it is the one means of preventing further terrorism. Any person caught in an act of terrorism, planning terrorism, providing the implements for terrorism, their entire family would be expelled from Israel and banned from returning. The damage to the family is the one means of addressing terrorism before it happens. The Palestinian Authority pays their terrorists and their families making it economically incentivized. This is the opposite form of payback meant to prevent anyone even considering terrorist activities.

 

Hezballah posses a different problem as they also have become much of the government for Lebanon. If Hezballah were to demand the support of the Lebanese Army, Navy and Air Forces, these would probably be assigned Hezballah commanders, if such has not already occurred. This would provide them with a plethora of American and Russian equipment, air-power, helicopters, main battle tanks and various armaments they currently lack. For this reason, any war which involves Hezballah must be treated as a war with all of Lebanon and their military equipment should be targeted and as soon as it appears that Hezballah would be using these weapons, they must all be destroyed as quickly as Israel is able. Further, Israel need warn the IRGC and other Iranian units in Syria that their aiding Hezballah would prove very unhealthy. Whether or not Iran should be struck should it be found that they ordered Hezballah to wage war on Israel is such a tricky question that we will leave it up to the people paid to make such decisions. What has never made sense is why democracies, no matter the level of the threats they face, must wait until they have suffered an initial attack before acting. This and proportionality are the two most idiotic concepts applied to military actions, though they appear to be left more for Israel than anyone else. There is one other concept since World War II which actually is counterproductive simply because it is so wrongheaded. There is this concept amongst the developed nations, which just happen to be the same nations who fought in World War II directly, is that the world has realized what a waste warfare is and we live in a time of peaceful coexistence. We can tell you that this message was lost on the nations of the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa). Just look around this region and see the conflicts which reach into every corner. Add to that the idea that one nation has been chosen to rule the entire world and the world is there for their taking. That nation is Iran and the Mullahs do intend to conquer the world little chunk by little chunk. They already took Iraq, almost have Yemen, have what is left of Syria, they own Lebanon and they are threatening Israel and Saudi Arabia along with the Gulf States and Kuwait. Iran also wants to take down the United States as they figure once the United States has been neutralized, think large EMP device over St Louis, then the world would be open for the taking. We unfortunately do not live in an era of peace, not yet.

 

That time could be near and it is all up to the developed world to take a risk and allow the most advanced forms of energy to be used across the globe and the wealth which would follow would unseat virtually every dictator and rid the world of uncountable problems. But that might harm the oil, coal, nuclear companies and put the eco-warriors out of business as energy would be virtually pollution free and so inexpensive that energy bills would become almost a thing of the past. This and modern farming methods, and it does not have to include hybrid seeds, but proper plowing, drip irrigation, water drainage, ecological means of pest control and other such technologies would allow the world to feed itself three times over without adding pollutants to the oceans. But the people who actually run our planet and wish to continue holding everyone in their concept of serfdom paying them for every drop of oil, every chunk of coal, every ounce of uranium and any other form of energy generation and thus refuse to allow any progress which would harm their industries. In time this will change as it always has and the Luddites will slowly fall back into obscurity.

Israel Should Just Claim All of Her Lands

 

We have noted an unfortunate new means by which the elites fresh from university interpret the past. Anything which occurred more than a few decades past is ignored as history is just so boring and unnecessary. The new elites believe they have all the answers whether they have the necessary information or not. This becomes astonishingly easy to see whenever the discussion comes around to Israel. Our new elites, who within a decade will be running the United States Congress, are already in control of the European Union (EU). Because of their belief that whatever they feel is the truth and there is little if any requirement that historical references be included in their decision-making process; they can draw any conclusion and demand that it is valid. There is a simple means of debunking and revealing the ignorance of these new elites. Simply ask them if they are familiar with the San Remo Conference or the borders decided upon under the British Mandate. Another two questions will complete any display of their gross ignorance. First, ask them how the majority of Arabs came to live within what was reserved for the Jewish State. Second, ask them how the majority of Arabs became refugees in the separate refugee camps which have grown as new generations are born and granted refugee status because they were born in the refugee camps. Just for fun, ask these wunderkinds if there are any other refugees anywhere in the world where their children and their children’s children henceforth and forever into the future with no end are also considered to be refugees. Small hint, the answer is no. If you have any knowledge about the history behind the formation of the Jewish State going back to shortly before World War I and specifically the treaties and agreements made after World War I, then the answers from these coming leaders of America, Europe and the rest of the Western World will be quite amusing in the depth of their ignorance. History is no longer taught honestly but instead the facts are modified to fit the concepts and political beliefs of the professors who teach these classes. This leads to extremely slanted presentation of facts omitting those facts which run counter to the new, anti-Western, anti-white-male and anti-Judeo-Christian ethos where the majority of their professors actually also believe, their concept which they believe to be fact, that White-Privilege has a sub set which is the most despised of all those with White-Privilege. That special qualification for scorn belongs to what they call the Super-Whites which they define as the Jewish People. This was made blatantly obvious with the Anti-Semitic Flier used on Campus of the University of Illinois at Chicago to advertise a protest with speakers condemning White-Privilege and specifically Jewish domination of the economic top positions (see flyer below). This has also been behind the riotous protests shouting down any pro-Israel speaker or any conservative attempting to present their information. Their information must be prevented from being introduced simply because their positions are not in line with the leftist-elites who control who is permitted to present their information and who is prevented from speaking. There is no longer any room for debate, either you agree with the far left or you are not to be permitted to present your side as you might present facts which run counter to the political slant taught by the professors from the ivory towers of academia.

The modern claim is that the Jews invaded the Middle East after World War II and the Europeans backed them as an apology for the Holocaust and because if the Jew established a homeland outside of Europe, then the Europe would have somewhere for their Jews to escape from their rising anti-Semitism, which is just fine with the Europeans as they wish to be rid of their Jews. The Jews presumably built Israel over the top of the country of Palestine. Presumably, there were no Jews residing in what was historic Israel until after World War II and all the Jews arrived miraculously in 1948 where they went from being completely alien to the region to the evicting force depriving Arabs of their own lands. There are a few glaring and important problems with this new history. First, the new history has absolutely no anchor in the real history and is simply pasted together from what has been taught, especially in colleges and universities which have a Middle East department financed by Arab nations or Iran. The new history begins around the year 725 AD and anything and everything which came before is irrelevant and has no applicable influence on the modern world. According to the new history there never was a Jewish State, no Israelites, no Exodus, no King David or Solomon and further, the Jews never ever had their own country and do not deserve to have one today, specifically not in the Middle East. This is history taught from the Islamic view of the world. According to the Islamic history, history only begins in any region once they come under rule by Muslims and Sharia. Rule under any other system, such as democracies, republics, parliamentary governance or anything where the people are free to worship as they please and people are considered equal must be replaced. Under Sharia, those who are not Islamic are second class citizens permitted to live because of the protections provided by their Islamic superiors. For this privilege, non-Muslims pay a tax called the Jizya which is often utilized to extract all the wealth possible from the non-Muslims and used to promote Islam. Holy buildings and monuments which are not Islamic are not permitted to be repaired nor are new structures permitted except in rare instances where the Islamic leaders permit such building to take place, a very rare occurrence. More often than not, the Islamic rulers will take ownership of the churches, synagogues, temples and other religious places and transform them into Mosques or community centers reserved for Muslims and the disseminating of Islamic supremacy over all other religions. Muslims believe that Islam is the sole true religion which was guaranteed by Allah to rule the world and become the only religion on the face of the planet. These Middle East departments are steeped in such propaganda and this is what they disseminate with a heavy amount of assistance by the leftist professors who have a deep-seated hatred for Judeo-Christianity and the history of the Western World which they believe was deeply flawed and have accepted the Islamic view of their history as being peaceful and far more advanced than Western civilization where people are granted greater respect. The truth of the history is it is actually filled with wars, violence, assassination of leaders and all the same violence and hatred as was ever found within Western society.

 

Islamic history is all about conquest. Their history began approximately in the early seventh century around 622 in the Arabic Peninsula, where almost every Arab and Muslim resided. By the year 750 they had conquered all of MENA (Middle East and North Africa) spreading into Spain, India, Afghanistan and what today is Turkey. There is a mainstay concept within Islam where the world is divided into two camps, Dar al-Harb and Dar al-Islam, also referred to by Muslims as the World of War and the World of Peace. Dar al-Islam is the world of peace as these are the lands where Islam rules without challenge while Dar al-Harb is the world of war as these are the lands which have yet to fall under the sway of Islam. The Muslims believe that any and all lands which have ever come under Islamic rule must remain under Islam rule into perpetuity. Islam continues to refer to Spain and Portugal as Andalusia, the name these lands were given when Islamic forces crossed Gibraltar and conquered much of the Iberian Peninsula reaching as far as Tours, France where they were defeated by Charles the Hammer Martel. This is also the root of the problem when it comes to Israel as the Arab Muslims had conquered the Holy Lands eventually defeating the Crusaders from Europe holding these lands until the defeat of the Austria-Hungarian Empire, German Empire and Ottoman Empire by Britain, France, Italy, Russia, Japan and the United States in World War I.

After World War I, the maps of the world changed drastically with the fall of the largest empires around the Mediterranean Sea. We often hear that only the Middle East was forced to have new borders and nations forced upon them by Europeans. Well, that is what happens when one is on the losing side of a war. The reality is Europe was also completely redrawn (see map below). With the redrawing of the map of Europe we had the birth of Poland amongst a few other new nations. The move after World War I was to return lands to their indigenous peoples which is why Poland, Czechoslovakia, Lithuania, Latvia and Yugoslavia were brought forth onto the map of Europe. The Middle East and Northern Africa went from being unified under the Ottoman Turks into numerous separate nations. The Europeans drew the new borders with little regard for existing tribal regions. If anything, the Europeans drew the maps of the MENA region more with the intent of permanent instability as they mixed tribes, many who had strong animosity for one another, into a single nation where unrest could only be contained under strong leadership. This was why these nations were all led by dictators who used brutality to suppress any divisions. Then there is Israel which is a whole different story.

Israel was first brought onto the map during the San Remo Conference which addressed the claim of the Jewish People to their ancient homelands. Originally, the Jewish State was proposed to be the entirety of the British Mandate. After San Remo there were a number of treaties which tied the allies from World War I behind the formation of a Jewish State. The frightening truth is within a couple of years, the Europeans in general and the British in particular, after the San Remo Conference much of Europe was seeking some means of preventing the Jewish State. The British, who were tasked with assisting in getting the Jewish State off the ground, took the first swipe, and it was huge. The British approached the Zionist Congress, a group with no military and in the weakest of positions, and proposed that they permit the British to use part of the Mandate Lands for an Arab State such that they could complete their promise to King Faisal granting his other son with a nation. The British formed an Arab State under Hashemite rule using the Jordan River as the dividing line between the Arab State and the Jewish State. This meant that 78% of the British Mandate was now the Arab State of Transjordan, later renamed simply Jordan, leaving a mere 22% of the Mandate lands for the Jewish State. Then, in order to prevent the Jews gaining the high ground, the British gifted the Golan Heights to the French under the French Mandate with the intent and eventual expectation of giving the Golan Heights to the Syrians and taking it from the Jews. But this was far from the end of British perfidy. The British worked with the Arab League to relocate Arabs from Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and elsewhere throughout the Arab world from their homes in these countries moving them to Israel preventing the Jews ever becoming a majority. The British continued this travesty until mere months before they finally left the region leaving it up to the world to untangle.

 

The United Nations (UN) presented General Assembly Resolution 181 as their suggestion as to how to peaceably end the growing conflict between the Jews and the Arabs which had been initiated and stoked by the British for decades. The UN Resolution divided the area west of the Jordan River, 22% of the British Mandate lands, in half with 11% of the Mandate lands for each side, the Jews and the Arabs. Despite much of the land set aside as for the Jews being the Negev Desert and the prime farmlands being granted to the Arabs, the Jews led by the Zionist Congress accepted this solution but the Arab League refused to accept the offer instead planning to eradicate Israel as soon as it was to be born. The British prepared to depart as their Mandate was to be terminated at midnight of May14, 1948. Israel declared her independence the evening before and rightfully became a nation at the moment the British left. Before leaving, the British searched numerous Jewish communities confiscating any and all weapons they found and gave them to Arab militias they knew were planning on attacking the Jews the next morning. The morning of May 15, 1948, the Jewish state of Israel was born and immediately came under attack by several Arab nations and forces including Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Yemen along with forces under the Mufti of Jerusalem. Further, Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini had been returned from Berlin where he spent most of World War II, when he was not reviewing the Islamic Nazi units in the Balkans, so that he could unite the Arabs. The British and Arab League, as well as the economic conditions of the Jewish State being better than their surrounding countries, had spread Arabs throughout the Jewish State into a force which could attack the Jewish forces from behind their lines and break supply lines. It was these actions which forced Israel to force a number of Arab communities across the lines to the Arab side as when any community permitted ambushes of Jewish forces, they were deported. These Arabs were a minority, a small minority, of the Arabs who had left Israel and taken refuge behind the Arab armies as the vast majority of these Arabs came in response to the pledges by Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini that the Jews would be defeated and exterminated within a couple of weeks at most and then they could share in the spoils of the Jews.

 

When the fighting finally ended in 1949, the Arabs had not completely defeated the Jewish State and the Jews still held to most of their lands. The Egyptians ended up occupying Gaza and Jordan was occupying the Shomron, parts of Judea and Samaria which they renamed West Bank including half of Jerusalem while the remainder of the Israeli borders remained unchanged. What need be remembered is that the borders of Israel as per the final agreements and treaties were the border called the Blue Line in the north with Lebanon, the Golan Heights with Syria, the Negev-Sinai border with Egypt and the Jordan River with Jordan. But after the initial war between the Arabs and Israel, Gaza and Shomron were left under Arab occupation. Jordan annexed their occupied lands and forced many thousands of Jordanians to relocate into these occupied regions. This condition remained unchanged until the Six Day War in June of 1967, which was initiated by Egypt when they closed the Strait of Tiran to Israeli shipping, a casus belli for war which was part of the agreement reached after the Suez Crisis of 1956. During the Six Day War, Israel liberated both Gaza from Egypt and the Shomron from Jordan as well as occupying the Sinai Peninsula. Then in October 1973, the Arabs once again attempted to destroy Israel and after some initial success, the Arabs were then forced back and were losing even more lands. IDF troops were closing on Damascus, Cairo and Alexandria when the United States joined Russia and the United Nations and most of Europe demanding that Israel return to the lines where the Six Day War had ended and not enter Damascus, Cairo or Alexandria. Israel, realizing she had little hope of opposing the combined demands by so many that the IDF was ordered to return to the Israel side of the Suez Canal and return to the Golan Heights leaving Jordan.

 

That should be sufficient history. The question comes to exactly who are the occupying people in Israel. There have been Jews residing in Israel since the Exodus mostly in and around Jerusalem, the Galilee, Hevron, Shechem and numerous other Biblical cities and settlements. There have also been some Arabs who have resided within what became Israel as well before 1850. Why did we say 1850? That is approximately the date when the Zionist returning to Israel was initiated and the first Jews returning to their ancestral lands. These Jews drained swamps ridding the region of the problem of malaria, cleared fields of boulders, built the waterworks and irrigation systems for the farmlands. This caused an economic boon which attracted some Arabs from neighboring lands seeking employment. After World War I and the San Remo Conference, the British took responsibility for aiding the formation of the Jewish State. The British had the strangest means of assisting the Jews forming their state as almost every move was designed to undermine the Jews from becoming a majority by forcefully bringing Arabs into the lands to the point that it almost crashed the economy which was unable of employing all of the incoming Arabs. Then, after World War II, the British did all they could from the start of the war until they left on May 15, 1948, of restricting and all but ending Jewish emigration to Israel.

 

But it was the decade after Israel was founded that the Jews became a comfortable majority. It was over this period that most of the Arab and Islamic world in the MENA region expelled almost all if not all of their Jews. Just as the world refused to allow Jews to escape the Nazis by closing their borders, they did exactly the same unless Jews had passports, thus virtually all of these Jews had but one location willing to take them in and do so gladly and with open arms, Israel. This was not because Israel was so economically well off that they could absorb what became more than half of the Jewish population of the nascent state of Israel. These Jews from the Arab and Islamic Worlds became almost half of the total population of Israel numbering over 800,000 Jews. Incorporating this influx of people strained the Israeli economy almost to its breaking-point, but things eventually worked out and the economy in Israel began to take off in the early 1970’s never looking back. This brings us to the question, who are the occupiers and whose lands does the region west of the Jordan River actually legally belong. The honest answer is that these lands all belong to Israel. In almost every other situation where after a war, borders change and part of another nationality finds themselves on the wrong side of the new border, these people are moved back within their former country’s lands. This would have meant the Arab population of Gaza would have had to move into the Sinai Peninsula under Egyptian rule and the Arabs in the Shomron would have been relocated into Jordan. This would have required the Arab World to absorb almost the same numbers of Arabs as Israel had taken in Jews from the Arab and Islamic Worlds. When the borders of Poland were formed after World War I, thousands of German citizens were relocated into Germany as they were unwelcomed by the Polish authorities and people. When India and Pakistan were formed, one for the Hindus and Buddhists with the other for the Muslims, hundreds of millions of people moved in mass migrations from one nation to the other. There was much violence during this transfer of people marring the hopes for a peaceful transfer of populations. This transfer of Arabs to their original homelands would not be accompanied by the same violence seen between India and Pakistani populations during their relocation.

 

This resettling has even been approached where the Arabs desiring to leave would be given a relocation stipend assisting their settling in their new home and also making these Arabs more desirable for other nations to invite them to settle within their borders. Such an offer would be presented to the Arabs residing on Gaza and the Shomron and could even be offered to those Arabs within Israel with Israeli citizenship, thus freeing every Arab within the borders assigned Israel in the 1920’s under San Remo and the agreement with the divide of the British Mandate along the Jordan River. This idea has gained some credibility with rumors that President Trump’s Deal of the Century might offer Arabs funds allowing them to relocate anywhere in the world where they can start a new life. This has caused the Palestinian Authority (PA) to make a law forbidding any Arab from leaving and relocating in another country. Hamas has already closed their borders refusing to permit their population from seeking a new life elsewhere. This means that both Arab governing bodies, Hamas in Gaza and the PA in the Shomron, have taken steps to prevent resettlement as being permitted to be used as a settlement of the Arab-Israeli Conflict. The reality is the Arab leadership does not desire any peace settlement with Israel. By their own word they do not desire their own state, they simply desire the destruction of Israel and the Jews exterminated from what they insist is their land. This is the driving sentiment behind the Gaza border riots where incendiary devices have been launched into Israel burning down fields of crops, forests, wildlife preserves and some homes and businesses. This is the driving concept behind the PA and their “pay to slay” policy where terrorists and their families are guaranteed payments for perpetuity, and these payments are far above the average salary of PA Arabs (see table below). These payments are derived from the numbers of Israelis murdered and injured as well as other considerations. With rampant unemployment, this “pay to slay” system has enticed many a young Arab to choose terrorist acts in place of seeking all but impossible job opportunities. Mahmoud Abbas has also made clear that if funds are short and after the elites take their cut of any funds, the first payments will go to the terrorists and their families before they pay the PA employees. The PA employees have already had their salaries cut claiming that funds are less than past times. The blame for this supposed lack of funds is, of course, President Donald Trump as he cut funds to the PA and completely ended payments to UNRWA. The reality is the EU and many European countries along with the UN and Arab World have supposedly made up for the difference caused by President Trump and his actions.

The final solution of the Arab Israeli Conflict will not come from payments for relocating the Arab populations as their leadership would rather shoot their own people rather than allow them to relocate. The Arab leadership is literally holding their populations as virtual prisoners of the conflict and eventual ammunition with which to destroy Israel. When the only solution one side insists and demands is the eradication of the other side, there can be no peaceful resolution to such a conflict other than the eradication of one side or the other. The best-case solution which could be imposed to seek peace would be to remove the terror leadership of Gaza and the Shomron and then offer a relocation renumerations which includes payment for any properties owned and additional funding to make their relocation as easy and even enriching as is comfortably possible. With the promise of the world kicking in $50 billion to assist economic development of the Palestinian areas, which will fail just as gloriously as every previous attempt to kick-start the Palestinian economy which is hampered by rampant and constant embezzlement of funds, might best be used to build a mega-city where the Arabs could be relocated with jobs waiting and housing available which was part of one of the rumors of what President Trump would be working towards. Such a plan would only face one problem, that the leadership will go to any extreme to block anybody being relocated as without their people, they would have no more millions of dollars coming their way month after month. This is unfortunate as with Iran backing Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezballah, while seeking to also take over the PA, and Iran seeking a conflict with Israel where they claim they will eradicate the Jewish State, a war may be inevitable. The Ayatollahs often refer to Israel as a one bomb state, something which is only valid if one has nuclear weapons, something we suspect Iran had a fair number as part of their weapons stores. Iran may start the final Arab-Israeli war while also attacking American interests in the Middle East which could start a war that escalates into the final world war. It would be so much in the interests of the world to resettle the Arabs and finally recognize the promises the world made to Israel of her eastern border being the Golan Heights and Jordan River. Remove the terror masters and solutions would become available, but how to remove the terror masters. When Israel targets the terror masters, the one thing we can guarantee is that the EU and UN would lead the chorus deploring the horrible acts the Israelis are resorting to by targeting the terror masters. Even nations who have used targeted assassination against terrorism themselves still denounce Israel having the right to using the same tactic. Another case of do what we say, not what we do where Israel is singled out for treatment never considered for any other nation. Israel, according to the overly pompous denouncers of everything Israel, must fight with her hands tied behind her back and never be permitted that which any other nation would consider appropriate actions to solve problems because Israel is the Jewish State which means it is held to a completely unique and unprecedented set of restrictions. We remember the last Gaza war where one of the reporters actually asked an Israeli Knesset Minister why there were so few dead Jews, then she quickly said, I mean Israelis. The truth had slipped her mouth giving a perfect view of what too many think when they say Israel, that what they mean is that state of the Jews. Without the world obsessing over everything Israel, the Arab Israeli Conflict would likely have already been resolved as the funds required for the terror operations would have dried up and there would be no cash flowing in to be stolen by the leadership before permitting a pathetic amount to dribble down to the normal people. That would be the fastest way to resolve this conflict, stop funding terrorists just because they are targeting Jews, or the Jewish State for those who desire a more polite means for saying the same thing.

Why the Middle East Peace Process Will Continue

 

The Israeli-Arab Peace Process, aka Middle East peace, aka Palestinian Peace Process and likely a plethora of other monikers are all equally misleading and just an arrogant lie. There never has been an actual peace process. The Oslo Accords of 1993 were simply a reason to bring back Yasser Arafat and his terror henchmen to eradicate the Jewish State. Oslo was initiated by a group of Israeli leftists, the Netherlands operating as the European enabler used by the State Department, and State Department officials working to destroy Israel for their Arab oil masters. The description just given is not intended to claim that everybody involved in the Peace Process do so with ulterior motives other than establishing peace. The actual expected goals of the peace process is to cut Israel down by taking a piece this decade, a peace that decade and piece after piece until Israel is unable to defend herself and is eradicated in an orgasmic genocidal assault by Arab terror forces and armies who will simply finish their intended purpose in fighting the Zionist Entity best described so succinctly by Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League who stated, before six Arab armies invaded the nascent state of Israel in May of 1948, “It will be a war of annihilation. It will be a momentous massacre in history that will be talked about like the massacres of the Mongols or the Crusades.” This idea was known to be the state of things as they prepared to leave their Mandate allowing those residing within to fend for themselves. Jordan was already established as Transjordan, and the Arabs had six national armies and several militias and terrorist forces ready for the expected annihilation of the Jews and their state. The British went so far as to confiscate every firearm and weapon the Jews had managed to stockpile and transfer them to the Arab militias arming more Arabs and disarming Jews. This attitude by most of Europe has never changed and they are still on the sidelines cheering for the end of Israel.

 

The latest example of the animus targeting Israel comes from a United Nations forum headed by Norway consisting of the fifty-four-nation United Nations Economic and Social Council which considered a resolution that says, “the Israeli occupation remains a major obstacle for Palestinian women and girls with regard to the fulfillment of their rights.” Norway, France, the Netherlands, Denmark, Ireland, Luxembourg and Malta joined with China, Russia, Iran and Venezuela and 29 other nations in supporting this targeted resolution. There was also another resolution that was passed mentioning “social repercussions of the Israeli occupation” more generally. Israel was the only country named as a violator or trouble spot by the Council during the session, according to the UN Watch organization. Only Canada and the United States voted against the resolution while the United Kingdom, Germany, Brazil, Mexico, Romania and Ukraine were among the nine nations that abstained from the vote. This is one of a myriad of examples of the world stirring the pot blaming Israel for every ill and difficulty faced by the surrounding Arab World, specifically the Arab Palestinians.

 

This farce known as the Peace Process has been continued despite all evidence that it is useless as the Arab Palestinian leadership, be it the PLO, Palestinian Authority (PA), Hamas, Islamic Jihad and even Hezballah, all consistently exclaim their intentions to destroy Israel and even kill every Jew on planet Earth and that they have absolutely no interest in peace other than the peace of the grave for the Jews and their state. The PA has refused every attempt at peace even to include the occasion where President William Jefferson Clinton received from Yasser Arafat his minimal demands which he would accept to make peace. President Clinton then met with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak twisting his arm and bending his ears until he agreed to meet the entirety of Arafat’s demands. All were gathered the next morning in Paris, France, as Prime Minister Ehud Barak and advisors, President Clinton, Secretary of State Madeline Albright and advisors along with a herd of media were waiting for the signing of this monumental agreement hammered out by President Clinton specifically to meet Yasser Arafat’s every demand. Yasser Arafat appeared coming down the steps, walking straight across the rotunda, out the entry foyer and into his waiting car which sped him to the airport where he flew to Aman, Jordan and subsequently initiated the Second Intifada in place of peace. This was likely the closest any United States President ever came to actually reaching a peace between Israel and the Arab Palestinians as President Clinton had gone to sleep content in the fact that he had done all that was necessary to reach peace. Under President George W. Bush, another Ehud, this time Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, agreed to what has been termed the most favorable peace offer ever made to the Arab Palestinians and it was rejected outright. Also, during the terms of President George W. Bush, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon agreed to remove every last vestige of Jewish and Israeli presence throughout Gaza providing the PA with an opportunity to show the world their great ability to run an actual governance and economy. Within a few years, Gaza was surrendered by the PA to Hamas in a bloodied coup and is today controlled and ruled by Hamas with Islamic Jihad with both terrorist groups coming under Iranian influence, Iranian control. The result of this sacrifice by Israel, like every other concession Israel has made for peace, fell on deaf ears only to be met by further terror, death, injuries and violence.

 

There have been two glaring truths which the United Nations, European Union, Non-Aligned Movement (group of over one-hundred developing nations often voting in unison with the Arab world), the Arab and Muslim worlds, Pseudo-Human Rights groups, United Nations agencies and the multitude of anti-Israel, anti-Zionist, anti-Semitic NGO’s have all gleefully ignored, that Israel has made all the concessions seeking a real peace while the Arabs have continued to demand that the Jewish State be dissolved and the Jews placed under Arab rule to do with them as demanded in the Quran. For those not that familiar with the Quran, we offer our article as an introduction, Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? and provide the truth, the Quran allows Islamic rulers to provide the Jews with protection in exchange for their paying the Jizya, and when this proves inadequate to tolerate the insult of Jews living within the Islamic World, the Jews are given their final choice, convert or die. The eventual result of destroying Israel and allowing for Arab Islamic rule to take over the lands, is the extinction of the Jews who were unable or simple refusing to leave Israel despite any hardships. The eventual intent of the Arab Palestinian leadership is the genocidal removal of the Jews from what they consider to be their world.

The Arab Palestinian leadership has reached the pinnacle of obstinance with the coming “Deal of the Century” which is being proposed by President Donald Trump. Mahmoud Abbas (Yasser Arafat in a suit) denounced any and all preferrings originating from the United States as long as President Trump holds the White House. Yes, there is definitely a “hate-hate” relationship between Mahmoud Abbas and President Trump. Mahmoud Abbas is able to denounce any and all peace offerings simply depending on the support of the anti-Trump Democrats in the United States and the anti-Trump Europeans to continue to support Abbas and protect him from any harm which could result from the efforts by President Trump. These anti-Trump forces have all the agencies of the United Nations, the Human Right Commission, the United Nations General Assembly, the BDS Movement, numerous anti-Israel NGO’s, the European Union, and, of course, the Arab and Islamic Worlds to utilize in their efforts to support and continue the terror assault on Israel and her citizens. So, this all begs the question, what are the actual intents of more of the world than even we feel comfortable in recognizing. Well, the initial answer is that much of the world as well as including specifically Mahmoud Abbas, the PA, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezballah, Iran and most of the Islamic World have absolutely no desire for peace with Israel but rather peace of the grave for all Israel.

 

The real problem facing Israel disguised as the Peace Process is the desire of the majority of the world’s leadership and power brokers to erase what they regard as their greatest mistake, the granting for the Jews self-rule in their ancient homelands. One can see how Britain along with France and numerous others starting almost immediately after the San Remo Conference in taking lands from the British Mandate intended for the Jewish State and gifting them to Arabs. The first such move was the taking of the Golan Heights and Britain giving them to France to incorporate into the Arab nation of Syria and denying them to Israel. The next move was to take seventy-eight-percent of the remaining British Mandate lands and making them into Transjordan (now Jordan) placing it under the rule of the Hashemite Arab Muslims. From this point, things begin to become absolutely absurd and are only believable by studying history of the region since the 1850’s when the initial Zionists started to arrive followed soon thereafter by waves of Arabs seeking employment or by stealing lands (farms) from the Jews who had built irrigation and drained the swamps. Those seeking employment or willing to cooperate with the early Zionists were welcomed. The others, under the influences of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini, gathered starting in the 1920’s rioting destroying Jewish businesses, homes and murdering Jews while the British largely stood aside observing only firing a weapon when the Arab gangs threatened the British troops, and one shot fired into the air or ground was all the British were required to shoot to end the violence. The violence was rarely, if ever, terminated by firing a single shot as long as the Jews were the sole targets. But what about the modern era, what has developed?

 

President Trump has held his economic introduction announcing the extent of monetary assistance he is willing to provide in order to improve the lives of Arab Palestinians. Obviously, President Trump must be unaware that the Arab Palestinians receive an inordinately huge percentage of economic aid provided all needful people as displayed by the graph below. As evidenced, the Arab Palestinians have received between three to ten times the economic aid provided other needy peoples. All this infusion of monetary aid has never come close to doing anything beyond providing the funds to continue the terror war against Israel. But President Trump and the presumed others who are promising this economic infusion into the PA and Gaza will not need be delivered as the PA, PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and much of the Arab world have refused the aid claiming that they cannot be bribed into accepting the Jewish State. Most of the economic aid will find its way to these terrorist groups anyways. Even if this promised money is not given under President Trump, it will be granted over time by the United Nations, UNRWA, the European Union, numerous European nations, NGOs around the world and other state and non-state actors will be sure to provide funding beyond their wildest requirements. This was evidenced when President Trump cut United States funding of UNRWA as they refused to modify their curriculum from initiating terrorism and violence against Israel and Jews to a curriculum more conducive for promoting peace and President Trump also cut the funding to the PA removing an amount equivalent to their investment in the “pay to slay” funding of terrorism and the Europeans and United Nations immediately stepped forward and filled the gap in funding as the terrorism must continue. President Trump has asked the “question which must not be asked” when he postulated that Mahmoud Abbas, Hamas and most of the Arab Palestinian leadership do not desire to make peace and instead intend to continue their terror war against Israel and the Jewish People with any and all funds received. Now that the “question which must not be asked” has been hatched and all have had to realize the truth, that the Arab Palestinian leaders will never accept peace unless it destroys the Jewish State placing the Jews, considered to be inferiors to their Islamic masters, allowing the Arabs to hold their rightful place as rulers over all of the lands. Thus, their chant across the Western college and university protests of, “From the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea, Palestine must be free.” Many Western leaders agree with the sentiment of those words and are agreeable to working towards such an end.

This explains why no peace has ever been attained. Contrary to the pro-Arab and anti-Semitic world’s claims that Israel has never made any moves or sacrifices for peace, the evidence is vastly different. Israel returned the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt for peace. Israel left Gaza for peace and received rockets, incendiary balloons and kites and continual rioting along the Gaza border. Israel provided in the Oslo Accords to divided the region granting the Arab Palestinians civil control over Areas A and B while Israel was granted control over Area C. Currently, the European Union has been building unauthorized illegal structures throughout Area C and labeling them as Arab Palestinian communities in an attempt to cut all of the Jewish communities off from the rest of Israel leaving them to wither on the vine. The United Nations joins the European Union in condemning Israel should Israel destroy these illegal structures. They insist that these are viable and Arab communities with all the rights of a recognized community, despite the fact most of these communities are not used as residence for anyone and only some come into use for guided tours of the deprivations the Arabs live under because Israel refuses to give them water, sewage systems, electricity, gas, proper roads and other utilities for these illegally built communities. They pay Arab Palestinians to sit around these structures providing a show for people, usually media and political visitors, who are brought through to witness the play which unfolds as the propaganda for blaming Israel as if she was actually depriving the Arab Palestinians a decent life. All of this trouble simply to provide cover for the terror war designed to eventually destroy the Jewish State. But this farce continues to function like a well-oiled machine backed by the UN, EU, Arab and Islamic Worlds, the world’s dictatorships and other anti-Semitic forces. The Arab Palestinian terror masters do not have to do anything but continue to murder Jews and destroy every and anything Israeli and they will have sufficient support from most of the world, eventually including the United States despite what many believe, and the cash will continue to roll in.

 

Now there has come one last item which, if it does not trigger a reaction, will finally reveal the fraud that is the Arab Palestinian cause. It has come to our attention that the PA has forbidden Arabs to voluntarily leave the PA controlled areas. At political symposium in Jericho, Saab Erekat stated, “…we will not allow resettlement or formation of refugee committees for that aim, while holding on to the settlement of their cause in accordance with international legitimacy resolutions.” The PA is demanding that UN Resolution 194 which states, “refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbours should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of or damage to property which, under principles of international law or equity, should be made good by the Governments or authorities responsible.” Israel opened their doors in the first decade of Israeli existence for those Arabs who had fled at the behest of the Mufti to return. The Arab League leadership refused to permit these Arabs from returning placing them into refugee camps where they and their prodigy have remained in limbo ever since. This demand is a smoke screen which is glaringly obvious as they are refusing to permit Arabs from leaving their locations, be that in Gaza, Areas A and B, and the remaining refugee camps, thus how can UN Resolution 194 be carried out if Arabs are forbidden from moving, period. Their demand, which will become a rally cry screeched over any statement describing the true reality, will be possibly, “UN Resolution 194, show the Jews the exit door.” Then, with boosts from their enablers, they will claim that Israel is refusing to allow Arab Palestinians from returning to their homes, which mostly have not existed since the early 1960’s, and the world will ignore Erekat’s declaration that no Arab will be permitted to leave the PA ruled areas and Hamas has the same restriction in Gaza. So, as usual, the Arabs are causing the perpetuation of the terror war and victimization of their own population and then are echoed by their enablers when singing their old tune that the Jews are restricting Arab freedom of movement. Lastly, this new restriction was put in place just in case the “Deal of the Century” which President Donald Trump is revealing might include resettlement of the Arab Palestinians, often returning them to the country from which they had left to move to the areas becoming the Jewish State of the years and rejoining their families and tribes which mostly remained behind. So, Arab Palestinian leadership restricts the movement of their citizens which the world blames Israel for this restriction because the Arab leadership will claim they were forced to take these steps because Israel must be blamed because the world knows how those Jews can be. Well, if given truth serum, then maybe many in the world would speak the truth, otherwise they just blame Israel, the nation of the Jews.
