The Disappearing Israel Should They Get Their Way

 

Swedish schoolbooks which have maps have no Israel written in Arabic and that have been distributed among school children in the city of Malmö, Sweden, the town where visibly being a Jew makes one a target for threats, harassment and possible physical violence which will not be pursued as a crime by the authorities. This is the result of further Arab pressures coming predominantly from the presumably cash strapped Palestinian Authority. Perhaps you remember them from a number of months back coming with their hands out, tears in their eyes with sobs breaking forth between the quivering pathetic whispers, very loud whispers, about being broke and the mean world which had not contributed sufficiently to their needy and worthy cause. The same Palestinian Authority which could almost be blamed for Europe’s insolvency as they, along with the United States and United Nations, provided them with billions, if not trillions of Euros and Dollars.

 

Meanwhile, UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine) is a separately funded agency taking care of only the Arab Palestinians set-up in such a way as to expand, not resolve the refugee crisis. It is a singular refugee agency separate of the main United Nations refugee agency, the one which covers every other refugees and has them settled or relocated usually within five to ten years, the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees). It represents the United Nations Refugee Agency and is currently resettling the Syrian refugees and anybody else desiring to move from the Middle East and potentially North Africa to Europe, Canada, the United States and potentially Australia. There are a group of nations which will not assume any of the tasks for resettling these refugees and the others who accompany their flooding tide into Europe; which are almost any Arab nations, Israel, Japan, Mexico and a few others who either have security concerns or laws which prevent their taking in refugees. They prefer their borders not be inundated with foreigners and any who so manage to relocate and even gain citizenship still are barred from owning land. We should get back to the main point before we drift out of range.

 

There has been a steady and expensive political pressure and propaganda war against Israel by numerous NGOs and other groups and organizations all being coordinated out of Ramallah and indirectly the offices of Mahmoud Abbas, Saeb Erekat, Muhammad Abed Rabbo and a very well-funded, well-staffed and globally connected to support groups and coordinators spread world-wide with their main efforts in Europe, the United States and Canada. Their main coordination are with left and far-left groups and politicians along with the countable multitudes of those who just needed to know they were not alone in wanting that Jewish State destroyed. The numbers willing to join groups or organizations which peddle blood libels, some so dated it is difficult to believe, they are being recycled and believed here in the Twenty-First Century with an internet which one can search and would hope that the first entry would point them out to be lies.

 

Oh well, figured perhaps we ought to test this out first and we were partially correct. The blood to make special Passover Matzah first entry was informing that this was a lie and a very well-worn blood libel against Jews but it was followed by a mix of obvious hoaxes mixed in with some other actual believers. Why we are even the slightest surprised as the latest publication of Mein Kampf hit the best seller list within the week of its release. Further, the fact that in much of MENA nations (Middle East and North Africa) not only is Mein Kampf a perennial top seller but so too are the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. One has to wonder if the Czars even imagined that their little blood libel would outlive them by over one-hundred-years and be used to turn an entire continent and more into virulent Jew haters and that their every word would be taken as sworn fact. This all goes to answer those who claim that such things need not be discredited and their falsities are made public at every opportunity as nobody, or at least no sane person, would ever believe these obvious frauds.

 

Well, amongst the crowds where most of us live, work and socialize, that is true; but most of us never spend much time socializing with people outside our comfort zone. After all, when was the last time any of us spent a Saturday night at a biker bar off the beaten trail in Death Valley? Didn’t think so. Leave it that those who honestly believe such lies do not exactly check the validity of these spurious claims at Snopes.com and mostly hang with others who simply reinforce such lies as if in an echo chamber where such claims are repeated more often than we could ever imagine. Please trust that such people exist even probably close to wherever one might be reading this article as for all one knows somebody in the building or Internet café might very well be reading and surfing one of the many and unfortunately ubiquitous web sites or forums where the greatest evil threatening the world are the ever plotting Jews who control the White House, yes, even President Obama’s White House, as he was supported by APAC on many of his many signature legislative efforts, you know.

 

What has become frightening is that across many Western Universities a Jew wearing anything which identifies them as Jewish is very likely to be assailed and even assaulted. They would live with near constant beratements and insults. During any of the anti-Israel and anti-Zionist demonstrations such as the BDS protests (boycott, divestment and sanction), Israel Apartheid Week, Palestine Awareness protests, Naqba Week demonstrations, Palestinian Awareness Month and various other such demonstrations; these demonstrations are always well organized. Many have instigators trained on what buttons to push and what arguments to use to silence any Israel defender and one often used tactic is to have three or four such instigators to surround the pro-Israel person and all yell and threaten them until they retreat if only to seek safety at which point they point and loudly proclaim their victory and point to the shamed Jew lover. If the Israel defender attempts to speak, they are shouted down; and if screaming in their face and surrounding them does not intimidate them into disengaging, then the shoving where one will forcefully nudge the Israel defender pushing them just enough that they make contact with one of the others who then throws himself back usually falling and then screaming like a banshee about being struck by the pro-Israel defender and demanding loudly that their assailant be arrested. When the person walks away, the screams change to look at the shamed Jew, well, you know, see above. These and numerous other tactics can be used which can be referenced in “Rules for Radicals.” The rules have not changed, just the target. In the 1960s the target was the man as he had all the power, now the target is the Jew amongst the nations, Israel and the Jews by presumed association, as they are presumed to be the new power structure.

 

The proof is in the facts of how Israel has the undefeatable IDF (Israeli Defense force), nuclear weapons, and sits in control of Washington, banking, Wall Street, media, the European governments, the European Union and the most delicious of them all, the United Nations. Then there are the sins of Israel which are legendary such as their Apartheid laws as the Palestinian Arabs have not been permitted to vote since 2004 and two elections have been cancelled, never mind that they were cancelled by Mahmoud Abbas and friends who desired to hang on to power and control of the monies. Such things are left unspoken as they might ruin the whole house of cards which is the entire libels against Israel. Israel is also carrying out a systematic genocide against the Arab Palestinians, never mind the half to three-quarters of a million who existed in 1950 according to United Nations census and the current numbers approaching six or seven million. Those are some of the worst numbers if the Israelis have been carrying out a genocidal extermination as the numbers reflect so exactly the opposite that such an accusation would be laughable if anybody actually checked the claim. Then there are the claims that Israel uses disproportional force when they are forced into enforcing the rule of law or entering Gaza to put an end to Hamas and Islamic Jihad usually after their slow creeping increase in rocket fire into Israel targeting civilians reaching into hundreds each day, well past what any other nation would tolerate.

 

One could almost hear the numerous reporters when asking, out of sheer curiosity and perplexity as to the reasons that there were approaching two-thousand dead in Gaza and virtually no Israeli civilian deaths. These questions were lies on so many levels it is difficult to go through them without losing one’s mind. First, their count of the deaths in Gaza included Hamas and Islamic Jihad fighters. Second, they already knew that it was as a direct use of human shields and the effectiveness of the Iron Dome in protecting Israeli civilians. It was also because Israel used shelters and the public knew well the drills for when the Code Red alarm sounded while Hamas and Islamic Jihad used basements in hospitals for their headquarters, has sufficient tunnel space to protect every Gazan but restricted their use to Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists. Israel placed units to protect civilians while Hamas and Islamic Jihad placed their rocket and mortar launchers adjacent to buildings used to house civilians who needed (not bomb-proof and simply better than outside) shelters, schools, hospitals and residential buildings. There was a strike which hit a Gazan hospital which immediately was reported to be the result of Israeli artillery or airstrike proved to be an errant Hamas rocket.

There was one absolutely ludicrous demand from the United Nations Human Rights Council following up its endorsement of the Davis Commission’s report on the 2014 Gaza conflict by insisting Israel must provide the Gaza Strip with Iron Dome missile defense system to protect the territory from rockets launched within the territory that fail to reach Israel which placed Gaza residents at risk. There was one reporter who asked directly why weren’t there more dead Jews, not even Israelis but actually Jews. The levels of hostilities shown Israel from amongst the nations of the world and the Jews as a people of the world are as shocking as they are revolting. The efforts to eradicate Israel, and in many cases those demanding the death of Israel, have every intent of following that up with the end of the Jews as a people. The Hamas Charter states such using a quote from the Hadiths quoting that the rocks will call out that there is a Jew hiding and for the servants of Allah come and kill them. Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezballah actually in one of his speeches expressed how he wished that every Jew be moved to Israel as then he would not be required to go very far to murder every last Jew on the Earth. Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi stated during a speech, “The only thing I hope for is that as my life approaches its end, Allah will give me an opportunity to go to the land of Jihad and resistance, even if in a wheelchair. I will shoot Allah’s enemies, the Jews, and they will throw a bomb at me, and thus, I will seal my life with martyrdom. Praise be to Allah.”

 

 

Hassan Nasrallah Gesturing during remote feed video onto large screen during Hezballah semi-annual pretense of readiness to defeat any Israeli assault as he remain in hiding presumably beyond the reach of Israeli drones and commandos. This enhances his appearance of constantly under threat by Israeli forces seeking to assassinate him. The likely truth is that Israel had no reason, desire or even bothered to draw up plans to do so. As far as whether Israel could find Hassan Nasrallah’s various secreted locations, probably already have them pinpointed on some map just in case it becomes advantageous to remove Nasrallah from his position as the figurehead of Hezballah.

European Union and the United Nations have both at some point made such over the top, ludicrous statements either as a body or through individual offices or officers that they needed to back-pedal from their statement to avoid further embarrassment. The same can be said about numerous leftist news outlets from CNN, the BBC, to French Channel 2, to the New York Times and others have all been caught in outlandish accusations about Jews, Israelis and Israel herself. Then there is the famous exchange between President Obama and then French President Sarkozy (spoofed below by one of our favorite adapted images) as they were caught exchanging statements of Sarkozy, “Netanyahu, I can’t stand him. He’s a liar.” Not ever desiring to be outdone at anything, President Obama replied, “You’re Tired of him, what about me? I have to deal with him every day.” We wish that had said it all, but the American President has recently pulled out all the stops and has both barrels lowered and ready to fire and Israel is in those crosshairs. Run!

When in Cairo at the Fund Hamas and Islamic Jihad and World Terror Supporting Gala one expects no small amount of fawning over Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian Authority and its latest unity government and denunciations of Israel and Zionism. It can perhaps be excused to air an amount of acrimony while criticizing Israeli use of disproportionate power and possibly asking rhetorically if the amount of destruction in Gaza might have possibly been averted and announce grand promises to alleviate the suffering of the residents of Gaza. All of Israel would love to alleviate the suffering in Gaza if it were to be accompanied by a real peace with security and an end to rockets landing on the unfortunate citizens in towns bordering Gaza to the east such as Sderot, Ashkelon , Ashod, Be’er Sheva, and the Kibbutzim along the Israeli southern border with Gaza as well as any escalations where hundreds of rockets per day rain down on the residents listed and additionally on Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa, Netanya and the bordering towns and neighborhoods which account for over seventy percent of the Israeli population. We even accept that there is no mention of these victims of the recent conflict with Hamas and Islamic Jihad, and it was a conflict with Hamas and Islamic Jihad and not with the people of Gaza except in as far as they served as a protective shield for the Hamas and Islamic Jihad war machine and the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorist army which was raining rockets into Israel. We have learned that what Western representatives say in Cairo and other Arab cities is to be mostly ignored by Israel as long as corrections are offered by our political leadership and the perfidy and lying remains in Cairo and other Arab cities and not be taken out into the general rest of the world. That is not what happened yesterday and the denunciations of Israel going to an international setting must be answered with some truths which remain obscured by these righteous representatives of the Western nations and the purveyors of honorable truths go so far awry straying into areas which can only be classified as the new blood-libels of anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism and anti-Israelism with a few exception such as the current Canadian government under Prime Minister Harper.

Perhaps the best place to start is with United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon who blamed the conflict with Hamas and its terrorist allied entities on the Israeli occupation in Gaza. There has been absolutely no occupation in Gaza by the Israelis since the disengagement where Israel tore out their emotional hearts wringing hands at the wretched scene of IDF soldiers dragging sobbing women and children from their homes and neighborhoods, tearing down the Synagogue to prevent its desecration, and threatening the older men and younger adults, both men and women, and eventually dragging them down from the roofs of their homes and community centers forcing them into buses to be transported to nowhere, a nowhere which was spread around southern and central Israel placing them in inadequate makeshift mobile homes, many of which had no electricity, sewage, or water hooked up as of yet and there they remained while Israel at first took care but slowly their plight faded from the consciousness and many of them have yet to recover and recollect their shattered lives to this day. If this had been the limit of the sadnesses of those days and that horrific sacrifice but it did not end there. What was mostly shielded from Israeli citizens’ eyes was the even more horrific scene of Israeli Security Police and IDF soldiers exhuming every last Jewish grave disturbing those interred there and reburying them in a cemetery within Israel as had the dead been left there their graves would have been desecrated and possibly their bodies dragged from their resting places to be burned and dragged around in an orgy of horrid unsightly ghoulishness as depraved as any of the ancient sacrifices to Ba’al and other pagan deities. There has not been any Israeli occupation of Gaza and Israelis have not set foot in Gaza since the disengagement except when forced to give a military response to Hamas unceasing rocket fire into Israel such as was the cause of the recent conflict, not any form of occupation.

Then there are the inconsistencies in Western acquiescence to Palestinian demands and their adopting those demands and attempting to foist their compliance on Israel in the name of peace, but they will not bring peace. They say nothing about the demand that all Palestinian occupied lands be free of any Jewish presence while insisting that Israel continue to give full rights to the Arab and Muslim citizens within Israel, something Israel has provided them since her founding and has never challenged or threatened to revoke their equal standing in Israeli society. They not only demand that Israel remove any Jewish presence from Palestinian lands but also give credence to the Palestinian demands that Israel incorporate some five-million Palestinian refugees and provide them with Israeli citizenship and assure that they receive adequate housing and other privileges. Somehow this is what defines equity and fairness to the minds of many of the Western elite. In Israel this equates to the European propensity for anti-Semitism and their recent and seemingly endless obsession with destroying the state of Israel and making it into simply another Arab state with no regard for the continued safety of the Jews. There is also the wrongheaded agreement with the canard that all the Jews in Israel originated from Europe and that the Jews in Israel are actually European colonialists. Israel as a Mandate Land was treated as a British colony from before 1920 until finally in 1948 when Israel was born. The Israelis were not the colonialist power as Britain was the occupying colonial power. Further, by 1950, two years after her founding, Israeli Jewish population was virtually equally consisting of Jews who emigrated from Europe and Jews emigrating from the Middle East and Northern Africa as the numerous Arab and Muslim nations made concerted and even overt acts to rid themselves of their Jewish populations and in many cases expelling them sending them into Israel. The Arabs know and fully understand that the threatening demand that the Jews return to where they came from is impossible as these very same Arab nations would never allow their Jews and their descendants to return and settle in their lands. Still, the Arabs are echoed by the Western political leadership that all the Jews in Israel originated in the West and mostly are from Europe. These libels also ignore the large Russian influx of Jews once they were permitted to make Aliyah from the Soviet Union. The other mistreatment originating from the Western elite is their ignoring of the hatreds taught in the Palestinian schools and the incitement which permeates their societal activities. The teaching of martyrdom as being a desirable end as long as it is aimed at Israel and the Jews is part and parcel of Palestinian media of every genre. This incitement goes hand-in-hand with their glorification and deifying of terrorists who murdered Israelis by any means including but not limited to ambushes of busses, suicide murder bombings, drive by shootings, rock throwing at and from vehicles, shooting across from one neighborhood to the next, rioting and assassinations of IDF and security police. UNRWA schools and camps teach children from preschool throughout their education that they were from Israeli cities and their most cherished desire is to return to their birth city or city of origin which include Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa, Akko, Netanya, Tiberius and every other city, town and kibbutz within Israel. This is ingrained into these children’s minds from an early age in order to promote an institution where every child believes that they were uprooted and their destiny is to return to their home in Israel and take the Jewish homes restoring their homeland and their entitlement which must be rewarded.

There are other Westerns echoing, restating or granting credence by not denying Palestinian blood-libels against Israelis and Jews. Many of these are old and discredited only to be given rebirth by the Palestinians and seldom denied or corrected by Western leaders who act as if they fear retribution if they stand up for the truth. The Western leaders refuse to counter the canard that the essays titled “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” are nothing more than a Czarist invention written to justify the pogroms against the Russian Jews by Czarist forces. The Protocols have been exposed for quite some time but have been allowed to be given new life and credence in the Arab and Muslim world without even the slightest denunciation and counter fact from Western leadership. Hitler’s screed “Mein Kampf” is one of the most bought and read books throughout the Arab and Muslim world and is not refuted as the vile and disgusting tome of hatreds, lies and manifestations of a troubled and hateful mind. Instead of denouncing these megalomaniacal writings, Western leaders just ignore this reality and continue printing copies of “Mein Kampf” in Arabic and shipping it to bookstores in the Middle East and North Africa. Western leaders associate equality for the Palestinians as forcing compromises and concessions on Israelis while excusing and justifying Palestinian prevarications and accusations giving them credence and gravitas despite knowing it all to be empty fabrications. Western leadership knows just as many Israeli leftists supporters that the idea of an indigenous Palestinian Arab peoples is simply an invention conceived and formed in Moscow as a pan-Arab club to wield against Israel to beat Israel into submission and eventually to replace Israel with a Palestinian state only to have it then divided between Syria, Egypt and Jordan. They are aware that the Palestinians were brought into being and placed under Yasser Arafat who is an Egyptian and if one traces the family names of the Palestinian leadership over the years one finds their family names indicate they originate from Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and even further astray throughout the Arab world and none were indigenous to the region. Western politicians are aware that the Palestinians have no relation to the Philistines, the Canaanites or any of the other peoples from the general area which is Israel, let alone having roots which date back nine-thousand years as claimed by Mahmoud Abbas.

The Europeans and the rest of the World knows that the truth is the idea of a Palestinian people was crystalized in 1964 with the founding of the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) which had as it leadership Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas as his second in command. The PLO Charter sets as their goal the liberation of all of Palestine and defines this as all the lands from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea with the exceptions of Gaza and the West Bank which are wholly owned lands of the Egyptians and Jordanians respectively. The formation of the PLO, the grandfather of the Palestinian Authority and Fatah, came a full three years before the 1967 Six Day War which saw Israel in a defensive war capture Gaza, the West Bank, the Golan Heights and the Sinai Peninsula. Soon after the Six Day War ended, the United Nations issued their demands for Israel to return most of the gained territory and Israel was to be permitted to retain those lands necessary for secure and defensible Israeli borders. The initial idea actually depicted Israel returning the Sinai Peninsula and retaining at the least the West Bank, which was actually Judea and Samaria in historical references. Israel made peace with Egypt and Jordan, with each relenting their occupied areas of Gaza and the West Bank. Egypt never actually formally claimed Gaza and Jordan annexation of the West Bank was recognized by a mere two nations, Britain and Pakistan. Western governments would reassess the amount of lands Israel was presumed to retreat from in such a manner as once Israel had given Egypt back the Sinai Peninsula, the area from which Israel was now expected to return land was redrawn to exclude the Sinai Peninsula as if Israel had never held the area, let alone returned it to Egyptian control. Carrying this concept to its final and only logical conclusion, should Israel give the Palestinians Gaza and the West Bank then those lands would be removed from the equation and after a few years when the Palestinians once again claim that all of Israel is occupied area then the pressure will come from Europe, the United Nations, the United States and the world to return further lands to the Palestinians. There may even be a demand for Israel to surrender the entirety of the Negev Desert allowing for the formation of national homelands for the Bedouin tribes. Just think about that one for a moment, a homeland for Bedouins who wander an area but do not settle anywhere, well, anywhere except Israel it seems. The end result appears to be taking all of Israel and leaving the Jews nationless, an idea which was first given credence by the Romans who dispersed the Jews from Judea and claimed to have destroyed the Jewish nation into perpetuity. This definition of the Jews as homeless and nationless was adopted by the Roman Christian Church (Later to become the Catholic Church) who added to the nationless degradation of Jews that this was G0d punishing the Jews for not becoming Christians who now replaced the Jews thus rendering the Jews to scorn and a future without a nation again in perpetuity. Perhaps this is the origin of the European inability to accept the existence of Israel as a state for the Jews; it undermines their own self-worth to recognize the Jewish nation. This also is something the Muslims got from their Christian neighbors and have adapted this definition of the Jews as well. It also seems that the Muslims have also adapted that idea as an eventuality for the Christians amongst others. Of course this progression is not possible as long as there is a Jewish Israel, thus a Jewish Israel must be resolved before history can proceed, or at least that appears to be the driving force behind much of this animosity, an animosity on a level not seen since Rome sacked Carthage, or since when Rome scattered the Judeans from Judea. Somehow we are now told that Judea was never Jewish and this makes sense exactly how? Rest on that thought.
