Iran and Proxies Increasingly Threatening Israel Part II

 

This has been the misconception of late by Hamas, Hezballah and Iran, that Israel is simply second-rate and not up to facing their masterful and complete dominance. That is obvious in the above quote of the Supreme Leader’s Tweet. He believes the IDF is just not the same IDF as the great victor in the Six Day War and the Yom Kippur War. He thinks the IDF has gone soft and can no longer even fight against the terror groups amassed on her northern and southern borders. Needless to point out, despite his assessment, there has been no order for these two groups to actively attempt to destroy Israel. One can only wonder why the hesitance if the IDF is so powerless against these two supreme Arab forces. Perhaps we can explain the reason that they have not truly tested Israel. The reason that the IDF has appeared weak is two fold. The last confrontation in Lebanon the commanders were told to use restraint and not to completely destroy every and anything which posed a threat. The recent barrage from Gaza killed a Palestinian Arab and injured perhaps a dozen or so people and traumatized a fair number but did next to no damage despite over four-hundred rockets fired. This was because the Iron Dome intercepted close to two-hundred of the rockets preventing them from striking heavily residential or other regions. The Israeli defense basically rendered the Hamas rocket barrages mute. The same would be the case for any barrage of the tens upon tens of thousands rockets, and now some guided missiles, which Hezballah could fire, as the Israeli Iron Dome is just for the short range rockets. Israel also has three (perhaps four or five or more) other known (and unknown) systems which launch interceptors (or energy beams) to destroy incoming longer-range projectiles. The reason the IDF has not utterly devastated the entirety of Hezballah and Hamas weapons inventories and their support structure is because they have been restrained. Launch what you claim to be contemplating; an all out effort by all your combined forces in Gaza, Lebanon and the IRGC from Syria and possibly out of the Sinai Peninsula and then you will witness the true abilities of the IDF. Of course, the vast majority of those you order to engage Israel will not be able to tell about the force that struck them so fast and hard that they were frozen in place as they, will have gone to their virgins. Israel would prefer to make peace with her neighbors and all that is required for such a peace is the ability with Islam in general and the neighbors of Israel to settle the Palestinian Arabs outside the borders promised to Israel, the Jewish State, by the San Remo Conference, the Mandate System, the British Crown and Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. We do not desire to rule the world, to expand our borders beyond what was promised, or to interfere with any other worldly affairs, we would be simply quite pleased to be allowed to live our lives within our promised borders and share our discoveries with everyone, assist all who are suffering from some cataclysm, assisting those we can using advanced technology and agricultural methods and otherwise aiding the world the best we are able in exchange for being allowed the privilege of doing such.

 

But the leaders of Iran (formerly Persia but they decided that Aryan would be a better name in 1935 in order to proclaim their being the origins of the Aryan race) desire to complete the world of Adolph Hitler by engaging in a second Holocaust despite their denial that the Nazis ever conducted the original Holocaust. The people of Iran are not the enemies of Israel and many would be some of our greatest friends if only they were ruled by representative governance. Before 1979 and the “Iranian Revolution,” actually more the American experiment gone wrong in Iran thanks to President Jimmy Carter, the man who claimed the Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini was a man of the cloth so he had to be righteous and peace-loving. This was just another great reckoning with a fantasy, and not reality, by the one, and thankfully only, Jimmy Carter. The rest, as they say, is history which includes the unfortunate hostage crisis which held fifty-two American citizens for four-hundred-forty-four days before folding the day that Ronald Reagan was sworn in as President. Of course, there are a thousand million conspiracy theories that Reagan and the Republicans were behind the hostage crisis in order to defeat Carter. Whatever. These are the Iranians which the world is dealing with currently.

Now we would like to introduce the world to a simple, but apparently beyond the ability of Westerners to understand, reality. Western Civilization, for what it is worth, has no current concept of world conquest as these civilizations have given up on ruling the world. The Greeks, Romans, Spanish, Portuguese, British all tried and failed never quite recovering from their efforts. The United States gave it an effort after the Spanish-American War but quickly realized it was a spider’s web which would only ensnare them and rob the nation of her vitality. The United States then fought wars of liberation and until recently never attempted nation building or democratizing those nations they fought to liberate. These recent attempts at democratizing and nation building have inured the United States economically and challenged the fabric of the nation. The one item we must give credit to President Trump is his lack of desire to fight the world through military force and influence. It is unfortunate that he has continued the United States presence in Afghanistan and elsewhere other than support for the Kurdish people, as other than the Kurds the rest of the Middle East only wants the United States to bleed for them and then bag up their dead and go home. The United States does not need such friends, as these friends take far more than they will ever willingly provide. Israel need learn, or at least continue to recall this message, that most of those in her neighborhood are more than willing to sacrifice your forces for their power enhancement but will be on the other side when the wars come to your border. The United States is able to recover from such mistakes, over a decade or three, possibly a century, but recover she will and remain strong the entire time. Israel does not have that recuperative power, at least not on paper or spreadsheet. Israel does have that spirit which had saved the United States in periods passed, and Israel will keep that spirit into the future, as it has been a gift of the Jewish People to be leaders in innovations and experts at their own survival. The Jewish People may have survived because the Romans attempted to destroy them by spreading them throughout and beyond their empire placing them in every known nation of their time.

 

This dispersal, as history refers to this method of destroying a people, was a Roman practice for destroying persistent enemies. There are only two peoples for whom this was used by the Romans as far as historians have been able to tell. The better-known one was the dispersal of the Carthaginians, originally the Phoenicians, who were dispersed after the Romans salted the earth around Carthage and they faded into history, unless you have met a Carthaginian lately. The lesser known was the dispersal of the Judeans, by the Judans and eventually the Jews, and the one to survive despite this treatment. The reason these two peoples were chosen for such respect was the fact that they rose against the might of Rome on three occasion each, for the Carthaginians they were the Punic Wars which every naval and land officer in Western armed forces studies, and the Jews were of lesser degree but did succeed in throwing off Roman rule, even if only temporarily until they assembled the required legions, of the overwhelming numbers of legions the second time, twice. Still, the Romans preferred their conquered people to be nice, quiet people who acquiesced to Roman dominance with an almost appreciative submission. But the Jewish People survived because they held to something more important and more powerful than land, they held a core of principles which revolved their lives around Torah. The Jews had a sense of a specific purpose to be a light unto the nations and always held to the belief that Hashem would return them to their homelands and that there would come a Messiah always in the future. They had their belief in Hashem as the One Deity and that all idols were simply powerless gods. This kept them steadfast with the belief that any suffering was penance for past sins, past grievous sins, and that there was a future coming where they would return to their homelands and the lands would welcome them and bloom. The early Zionists might have questioned the immediacy of the land blooming, but thanks in great measure to their work on a water system, the land blooms and grows crops the world over sees as some of the most advanced in agricultural sciences. It took patience as there was one prophet who predicted the exact date, well year, that the return would come and it had to do with the number of years by which the first exile in Babylon was cut short because of our good behavior and promises to not again wander from the true path. Well, the Second Temple was destroyed which should tell you that the Jews strayed again. But there was the promise which gave a date, according to Ezekiel, who said the Jews were to be punished for 430 years because they had turned away from Hashem. This was to become the Babylonian exile. The Persians under Cyrus the Great defeated the Babylonians and freed their Jewish captives about 70 years after Judah lost independence to Babylon. This left 360 years which the Jews would require a second exile to fulfill, as one must pay Hashem when one strays. In Leviticus 26:18, Leviticus 26:21, Leviticus 26:24 and Leviticus 26:28 the Torah spells things out quite clearly, should the Jews not fully repent their sins they would be punished increased by a factor of seven. This meant their time in the Diaspora, or under foreign occupation, became 2,520 years on the original lunar Jewish calendar which translates to 2,484 years on the adapted lunar-solar calendar used today. Count from 536 BCE forward 2,484 years and you arrive at 1948. Additionally, there is Isaiah’s prophecy Chapter 66:8 which states: “Who has heard of a thing like this? Who has seen things like these? Will a land be brought forth with labor pains in one day? Or will a nation be born at one time? For Zion has come into labor pains as well as given birth to her sons.” Israel was basically set by vote of the United Nations as well as her own declaration to be born on a set date. These are among the miracles we have seen even to the modern era, and yet there are those who argue our legitimacy.

 

Iran goes one-step further and declares they will destroy Israel and the United States on their way to world conquest. Oh, that’s right, that is something that the developed world gave up on and does not believe that any nations believe in world conquest. That is how fast they forgot Hitler and for many their own histories and their ideas of world conquest. Well, those who believe in the Quran and the Hadiths are still seeking world conquest because their holy book demands such from them and they believe that Allah will give them the world as their oyster. The Torah and the Old Testament does not declare that Israel or the Jews should ever desire or expect to rule over anything beyond the lands which Hashem promised to Abraham. No world conquest exists in our books. We are to be a light unto the nations of the world which means that there have to be other nations for us to serve as an example of how to live. We are to be the ones making the world greater by example and gifts we provide through our research and developments. Israel has been providing remote African villages with agricultural knowhow and developments, water purification systems, cell towers and electricity from solar systems backed by rechargeable batteries in order to connect them with the outside word and improve their lives. Contrary to those who malign Israel, all we honestly desire is exactly what was promised to the Jewish People after World War I, our lands under the Mandate System which gave our borders to be the Jordan River on the east, the Mediterranean Sea on the west and our current borders with Egypt and Lebanon on the north and south with the Arabs repatriated with their original homelands. The vast majority of the Palestinian Arabs were also immigrants who came into Israel, either seeking economic advantages or were forced into Israel by the British, French and Arabs in efforts to prevent the Jews from ever reestablishing their homelands. The Holocaust had nothing to do with the establishment of Israel, as this was the intent of the San Remo Conference of 1920 and the following measures of the Mandate System established by the League of Nations and enforceable by the United Nations under Article 80 of their charter. That is what we desire and know will come to pass with time. That is the truth which has been completely disregarded and replaced with claims that Israel was founded on the Arab homelands of Palestine. There has never been any nation called Palestine and that is merely the Roman name for the greater region around Israel which includes Jordan. Iran also ignores this reality and claims, the same as the old anti-Semitic claims of history, that the Jews, Israel, are masters controlling the world and responsible for every war and misfortune which humankind suffers. They claim that they are saving the world in their quest to destroy Israel and following by conquering the world bringing it their version of Shiite Islam. Do not wonder, the Iranians are not the only ones who are out to conquer the world. Islam, as a religion, is based upon the conquest of the world and the conversion of every human to whatever form of Islam the conquering Muslims practice. Then there is the President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who believes that he is to establish the second Ottoman Empire and from there conquer the rest of the world, something that the initial Ottoman Empire fell a little short, by four continents or more. These are the ones seeking to conquer the world; Israel just wants what was promised by the world after World War I. Iran will not conquer Israel and thus not the world. For those who are entertaining world conquest, please just leave us alone, thank you.

It is NOT About Land President Trump

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 3:00 AM
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

 

Our thoughts, prayers and condolences are with the community of Squirrel Hill and all of Pittsburgh after the horrific Synagogue shootings. Tomorrow we will give our reactions after we are able to digest this tragedy and all its ramifications. May Hashem soothe the bereaved and keep all in His loving care.

 

President Trump is attempting a make a Middle East peace plan, the so-called “Deal of the Century,” in the same way he would negotiate a deal along the Jersey shore. He wants to have each side take lands and agree on borders no matter which elements he is required to include. He tried the Palestinian Authority (PA) and they balked immediately and were quite abusive in their rejection. He tried Jordan and initially got the same response though more measured and polite. He has possibly decided that bribing Jordan will do the trick, he is wrong. Mr. President, we do not know any easier way to put this, this is not about land, this is about Jews. The Arabs made this so very clear in their little tête-à-tête which they held the September after their humiliating defeat in the Six Day War in 1967. They came out with what is known as the Khartoum Resolution and had the infamous ‘Three No’s’, which are “no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, no negotiations with Israel.” The Arab League expelled Egypt for a period after Anwar Sadat signed the Egypt-Israel peace agreement only permitting them back in as Egypt was then one of the more powerful Arab nations and still might be. The entire confrontation comes down to a few very simple and easy points to understand. First is that the region which is Israel had been Islamic territory for hundreds of years under the Caliphate and the Ottoman Empire and as such must never be permitted to fall into the hands of any others. This is a Quranic dictum. The Muslims also claim that most of Spain is actually called Andalusia and is also Islamic lands which they are anxious to retake under their control. One has to wonder if they also wish to sit at the Gates of Vienna once more as twice was not sufficient. This is a religious war over which religion is supreme, Judaism or Islam. Further, Jerusalem being the third holiest city in Islam is a recent development and only came about after the Jews took the entirety of the city in the Six Day War. There have been other third holiest cities in Islam of which probably the two most famous are Damascus and Constantinople. The third holiest city in Islam is reserved for the next city in importance which the Muslim hopes to conquer or control through any means necessary. The main point of any negotiation could not care where any lines are drawn and what the name of each tract of land assumes, it is about which religion controls the land and for there to be peace that religion must be Islam. One last point before explaining further, the worst possible case for the followers of Islam is for the, as they would refer to us, accursed Yahud to take control of previously Islamic land. That is why Mahmoud Abbas made claim that every inch of Israel is an Islamic Waqf, which in this usage means an indelible and indivisible part of property belonging to Islam.

 

This is the idea through which UNESCO made all of the Old City of Jerusalem a Palestinian Heritage Site and disavowed any meaning or significance of the area to Jewish history or of any religious significance to the Jews. They did the exact same thing on Hebron which includes some of the holiest sites in all of Judaism including the Cave of the Patriarchs and Joseph’s tomb. They also had the same declaration on Bethlehem which apart from its Christian heritage is also the location of Rachel’s tomb. The churches in the Old City including the Church of The Holy Sepulchre as well as the churches in Bethlehem including the Church of the Nativity are claimed to be Mosques and belonging to Islam with no relevance to Christianity. They make a big spectacle around Christmas and Easter for economic reason selling trinkets to tourists. Another little concept which it might be wise to keep in mind when dealing with the Arabs, Taqiyyah, which is a directive within the Quran which actually not only allows a Muslim to lie to advance the causes of Islam but actually compels them to lie. The odds are that should they say something to you which is pleasing and meets your expectations, the odds are they are employing Taqiyyah and when the time comes to sign any treaty they will claim they never ever stated what you claim you heard. There is an easy way to understand the position of a Muslim when attempting to make a deal, which is what you claim you desire to accomplish. The first thing is that you must give and they must receive. That is the most basic concept in their minds. They can promise you anything but are not under any obligation to actually fulfill their promises. Anything you even intimate is a possibility, they will pocket that as something you promised and no amount of protestations or reality will change that in their minds. When dealing with them if you promise to give them something in return for something they offered you and then they break off negotiations and later decide to resume the negotiations, what you promised is the new starting point and they get to keep whatever you promised while you get nothing because they did not mean what they said when they agreed to exchange something for your concession.

 

We realize that this does not sound quite right and is a form of negotiating with which you are quite unfamiliar. Allow us to recommend you read some items from American history which might explain some of what you are getting into when dealing with Muslims. Read everything you can find in the White House records by Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and any other records dealing with the Barbary Pirates and the two separate wars the United States was involved. You may even wish to read some of the commentary from our European counterparts from that period to get an idea at how useless the Europeans were in this struggle despite gaining from your efforts greatly. When Thomas Jefferson queried on why these attacks were being made on American ships when the United States had not entered into any conflict with the rulers of the Barbary Coast, Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, the Ambassador from Tripoli, replied that Islam “was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Qur’an, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman [Muslim] who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.” Needless to say, Thomas Jefferson was quite floored at this response and it was then that he searched out a copy of the Quran in English and read it to his amazement and abhorrence. That is also the Quran which Keith Ellison took his oath of office upon and may have been behind President Obama’s claims that Islam was “woven into the fabric” of the United States since its founding. Perhaps that last part just might give you an idea as to how far the Islamic practice of prevarication can reach.

Once you have made yourself more attuned to the people with which you are attempting to make a real estate deal and the fact that they are not negotiating anything remotely close to real estate, perhaps we can recommend some additional reading. Then again, you could simply have a long and uninterrupted sit down with your Nations Security Advisor as John Bolton is quite familiar with the history and this knowledge could be of much assistance. You might ask about the San Remo Conference and how the British when they received the Mandate decided that their Mandate to form a Jewish State in those lands did not explicitly state all of those lands, so they gave 78% to the Arabs and paid their debt to the Hashmites by giving them rule over Jordan and Iraq, King Feisal insisted that the British give both sons a kingdom. When the British gave the one son Iraq, they made a deal by which J. Paul Getty received total control of the Mosul oil fields and in return Iraq got to keep the lands which were to have been Kurdistan. This is why when the Kurds hinted they wished to separate from Iraq, it would have behooved the United States to have assisted so as to make good on a promise the world still owes to the Kurds. The British attempted to do the same to the Jews but we decided to ignore the State Department when they informed us that it would be inconvenient for us to declare independence in 1948 because as Jews we have been told it would be inconvenient too many times to care. You probably have noted that the State Department is not exactly a pro-American department and have opposed the greater good for a very long time starting with their tacit support of Hitler and Mussolini with their admiration of the efficiency of fascism. We have always believed that the State Department has always been a little to enamored with the idea of government control over everything. This may be why they also thought that Joe Stalin (Uncle Joe to the State Department) was such a wonderful guy and somebody the United States could take a few lessons from on how to run an economy. We can also tell you a little secret which is actually well known, the State Department thinks that Israel is just a royal pain and wish we would disappear and are willing to kowtow to Islam if they would take care of their Israel problem. Just ask John Bolton and he will probably tell you it would be in the best interests of the United States to recognize the borders Israel was at least promised by the British in exchange for their stealing away 78% of the Mandate lands, and that was that our eastern border was to be the Jordan River and Israel was obliged to recognize the right of everyone residing within her borders to practice their religion, have a business, equality on all economic matters, allowed to own land which means that they are to enjoy religious and civil rights without prejudice but there was one right which Israel could, should they so choose, reserve solely for Jews, political rights such as the vote and holding office. Now, obviously Israel did not choose to do so and gave full citizenship to the Arabs residing within her borders after the war to eliminate the Jews in 1948-9 fortunately fell short. Yes, we lost parts of Judea and Samaria as well as all of Gaza, but we saved our country to live and become the little giant she has become. What is really sad is how hard the world fights to deny us the small plot of land which is a mere 22% of the Mandate, but we all know what their motivating factors are, oil and hatred, an old and dirty hatred. Perhaps the solution would be to grant Israel the lands she was promised and tell the Arabs occupying our remaining lands that perhaps it is time that they moved on let us be. We know, that is way too much to expect from a world that would rather see us erased from the map.

The Only Workable Path to Peace in Israel

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 1:52 AM
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

 

Forces are finally coming around and realizing that the paradigm of “Land for Peace” has failed utterly because the Arab World refuses to accept a Jewish State in the Middle East no matter the size. The time for Israel concessions in any form should be beyond debate and relegated as a dead horse who has been kicked enough to prove its death and is actually putrefying. Israel need adopt the adage used by the American Revolutionaries of “Live Free or Die,” and adopt the position that Israel will not die. The means of this outlook should begin with the wiping of Hamas and Islamic Jihad from Gaza, the removal of the Arab population and the complete rebuilding of Gaza into the haven the Arabs should have built but refused choosing instead to make war on Israel. Should they then attack Israel from the Sinai Peninsula, the Israeli government should impress upon Egypt that if they do not end such actions, then Israel will and without any regard for delicacy. Israel should, at the same time, annex all of Area C and inform the leadership of the Arabs that any terror attack will be met with the annexation of additional lands which will be wiped clean of Palestinian Arabs sending them into the smaller and smaller area and within a set number of attacks, the entirety of the lands will have been annexed and the Arabs exiled into Syria. The time has come for Israel to cast aside her illusionary visions of peace and recognize them for what they are, a hallucination fed them by the combined efforts of the Europeans, Islamists, anti-religion leftists and the ever persistent anti-Semites into giving away their ancient homeland in small pieces until their state will no longer be viable and there is a final attack in which the Jewish population and many of the rest of the Israeli population will be exterminated.

 

There will be many from within Israel who will read these words and immediately reach into their consciousness and query, but what will the Europeans and Americans think and say. The problem is no matter how much evidence these Jews are shown, they remain convinced in the back of their minds that they still need to worry about what the rest of the world community thinks of their actions. They believe that they are still living under the rule of the non-Jews and not under their own rule in their own country. They still think as they did when being oppressed and when any act which drew attention to them might cause them harm from the authorities. Realizing that they are electing their own authorities now is an idea that is still foreign to them. Because of their fears, they shy away from electing forceful leadership which would do that which is necessary for the prolonged existence of the Jewish State. They fear to even think to request that the world keep the promises made to the Jews just less than a century ago. They believe that were Israel to simply take the lands promised her and expel those who would threaten the continued peaceful existence within these borders that they would be punished. As long as the people show this much trepidation over declaring to the world that you promised us these borders, the Jordan River to the east through to the Mediterranean in the west, and those are the borders we declare and not a millimeter under those promised, then their leaders will reflect this fear because the people expect no more from them.

 

The way to reject this thinking and free oneself to realize the real freedom of a people living within their own lands given them by Hashem is actually quite simple and very liberating. Step one is to remember what life was back in wherever it was that you, your parents or grandparents lived or however far back you need reach. Realize how the people treated the Jews and remember the authoritarian attitudes and how they simply demeaned Jews into being timid. Now realize that this is your land and that you are now the one who is the authoritarian and realize that though we will not demean the stranger, as that is against Torah, but that we can be just as authoritarian about where our borders lie and in demanding everything which was promised us by Hashem and by the world after World War I. The final step is to be proud and loud in the declaration that we were promised lands and that even the United Nations recognized these promises even if they have worked every day since to eliminate our nation from the community of nations. We no longer can be required to scrape and beg for that which we know is ours; we can simply take all that is ours and need not countenance those who would deny us our rightful lands. And for those whose memories require a little reminder, here is a map below which depicts that promise. One last nudge, before 1964, when the world used the term Palestinian, they were referring to the Jews and that was the truth until the Arabs stole the name along with the history of the Jewish people back to the Israelites and made that lie their claim to our homeland.

For those who require an actual revelation of how the world would react were Israel to declare that the game with the Arabs is over, here it is. Once Israeli forces cleared out Gaza, the world would rise up and scream, declare boycotts, demand we give it all back and probably demand we give the Arabs the Negev as a gift as the way of saying we were sorry. When we simply refuse, they will get all in a huff. When we simply do not care and continue to press the Palestinian Authority to prevent all attacks or else, they will scream and yell. The United Nations General Assembly and the Human Rights Council and the rest of the alphabet of United Nations agencies will hold emergency meetings and there will be cases brought in The Hague and every sort of crazy maneuverings which will result in nothing. Why will it result in nothing? First, because we would be claiming that which is rightfully ours as warned by an Egyptian jurist at The Hague. The Honorable Justice El Araby warned the UNGA and others that filing further ran some risks, as he stated,

“The international legal status of the Palestinian Territory (paras. 70-71 of the Advisory Opinion), in my view, merits more comprehensive treatment. A historical survey is relevant to the question posed by the General Assembly, for it serves as the background to understanding the legal status of the Palestinian Territory on the one hand and underlines the special and continuing responsibility of the General Assembly on the other. This may appear as academic, without relevance to the present events. The present is however determined by the accumulation of past events and no reasonable and fair concern for the future can possibly disregard a firm grasp of past events. In particular, when on more than one occasion, the rule of law was consistently side-stepped. The point of departure, or one can say in legal jargon, the critical date, is the League of Nations Mandate which was entrusted to Great Britain.”

 

The truth of the matter is that it has been the problem of the Israelis not forcefully demanding their rights which has led to the decay of their claims to the lands set forth under the British Mandate. Should Israel state in a unified voice that their lands are a sacred trust which cannot be breached by popular politics or world opinions and that Israel will set all other claims to rest as they claim their rightful and promised lands, then the world would think twice before tempting fate. Israel will continue to be dragged and befuddled for as long as they permit the world to dictate what they may and may not do in their own defense. No other nation has been so defamed despite the realities which point out that the opposite of every claim against her is the truth and that the reality is that Israel has been too willing to accommodate the desires of those who wish to do her harm. That must end and that can only come to fruition when the Israelis choose not to be the timid darlings afraid to live proudly within their own lands and ignore the agitations from critics gaming to bring ruin upon her. Either Israel exists as promised or eventually Israel will not exist. The latter is the desire of most of the world and the majority of world agencies; it cannot also be the desire of the average Israeli. That is the reality and the answer is for Israel, through the demands of her people, to be represented by political leaders willing to declare these truths and demand from the world that which has always been rightfully Israeli lands and end the fiasco which has been perpetrated ever since the Arabs failed to destroy Israel in 1948, 1967, 1973, and finally with the Oslo Accords and all the foolhardiness which has resulted since.
