Israel Must Answer Threats and Enforce the Law

 

Israel is being challenged by what has been termed as the Third Intifada by Israelis and likely a fair to large percentage of Arabs and the Stabbing Intifada by the ever more descriptive and often more morbid Islamists Arabs who are supportive of the violence and actively support the drive to remove the Jews and replace Israel with their mythical state of Palestine. The Arab Palestinian Islamists take great pride and even a morbid fascination in how the world reacts to their violence and extremist demands along with their interactional unapologetic violence and instead of decrying their uncivilized threats to civilized societal behavior by threatening the lives of innocent civilians they decry any attempts to enforce the law or any other steps deemed necessary to protect the public such as adding checkpoints at all places where the public mass such as malls, theaters, bus stops, light rail spots, public functions and other place deemed as potential targets for the extreme terror assaults using knives, firearms, vehicles or potentially homicidal suicide bombers should Hamas suggestions for such attacks and additionally any following of the other Hamas suggestion of placing poison on their knife blades adding to their potential for lethality. Anywhere else on planet Earth which would face such a challenge to the public safety would be met with sympathy and understanding from the rest of the world and there would be unquestioned support for any and all steps used to restore civility and safety for all members of the society. The Israeli public, not just Jews, but the entirety of those living, working, studying or visiting Israel are in risk of being targeted by these horrific terror attacks. One hopes that there exists a silent plurality if not majority who are just as appalled and horrified by the assault on society which has been slowly escalating since immediately before the Jewish High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur with much of the violence centered on the Temple Mount with the aim of denying the ability for Jews to ascend to visit the holiest place on Earth in the Jewish religion. From there the violence spread out beyond the central place in Jerusalem out across the remainder of Jerusalem and also out into the areas both within and outside the Green Line, thus so much for it being the “occupation” as some of the attacks occurred within the Tel Aviv metropolitan area and in the central northern Galilee. What has also been omitted from most of the media reporting we have seen from outside of Israel has been the nearly endless rock throwing at vehicles on the roads and highways in Judea and Samaria with many reaching back over numerous years numbering over a dozen but mostly not reported upon because the rock attacks became the definition for normal and thus were ignored by and large. Now the knifing attacks are attempting to follow the same path of becoming a commonplace part of life in Israel and thus not worthy of being reported as such things becoming normative.

 

There will be those who will claim that if Israel would simply give the Arabs their own state then everything would be just fine and the terrorist attacks would end. That worked so well when Israel pulled every last Jew and every troop, police and other presence from Gaza turning it over to Mahmoud Abbas and the Arab Palestinian Authority (PA) who almost immediately lost it in a coup to Hamas who has launched rocket offensives at a rate averaging of at least every other summer with the numbers of rockets per day in the hundreds and exceeding one thousand each week and once Israel responded by using the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) was immediately met with a drastic increase of rockets fired per day. This past summer if not for the miraculous precision of the Israeli developed anti-missile Iron Dome systems and at least one case of divine intervention (the story of how central Tel Aviv was rescued when the anti-missile system failed is worth a read) there would easily have been thousands if not tens of thousands of Israeli dead from the rocket barrages. Of course the one matter during Operation Protective Edge was all about the lack of dead Israelis, or as one media reporter asked allowing a slip of the tongue, lack of dead Jews, compared to the numbers of Arabs that Hamas managed to place in harm’s way by firing rockets from next to or even on top of shelters, schools, hospitals, clinics, residences and anywhere else which would cause damage to infrastructure and homes or place civilians in danger resulting in casualties not to mention the number of rockets Hamas and Islamic Jihad fired which never cleared the border striking instead within Gaza with one striking one of the Gaza Hospitals. If these actions by Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the other terror factions in Gaza act when the Jews and all other Israeli interests have been removed, why would anybody believe for a second that should Israel turn Judea and Samaria over to Abbas that he would not simply hand it over to Hamas or Islamic State as soon as either challenged his forces or that Abbas and friends would be any different. The real problem is Abbas has already promised to continue with the armed conflict, translates to murdering Jews, until all of his pretend Arab state of Palestine has been liberated, and by that he means all of Israel as depicted in the pictures below.

Arab Palestinian Depiction of History as They View Events as Having Destroyed that Nation We All Know Never Existed

 

The violence has been driven by incitement which has come from the very top of Fatah Party, the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) as well as from the PA itself including Mahmoud Abbas as in the video below where he refers to the “Jews Have No Right to Defile the Al Aqsa Mosque with Their Filthy Feet” despite knowing full well that no Jew has even approached the al-Aqsa Mosque with the possible exception of Israeli security forces though the majority of these police are Druze and other non-Jewish members of the force in order to avoid such confrontations. Abbas also praised the “men and women in rabat. We salute every drop of blood spilled for the sake of Jerusalem. This blood is clean, pure blood, shed for the sake of Allah.” Abbas continues saluting the martyrs and those a who were merely wounded and thus not achieving martyrdom before getting around to denouncing the Jews, but you can read and see it all for yourselves as we again give you the most quoted video of the past few weeks which relates to the instigation which is above and beyond the near constant incitement which permeates the entirety of Arab society in the PA through camps, schools, videos, music and virtually everywhere the youth can be reached and brainwashed. But first Chairman Abbas who heads virtually every organization from the PLO to Fatah to the PA and thus his words carry additional weight, or if not why is he then a partner worth negotiating with.

 

 

 

 

The PA had not been resting on their achievements as Abbas has been active speaking before a special session of UNESCO where he made great efforts to attempt to have the boundaries of the al-Aqsa Mosque increased from covering the entirety of the Temple Mount to have it cover all of the Old City of Jerusalem and specifically the Western Wall and Kotel Plaza where Jews gather to pray as close as they are able to be and still permitted prayer as any Jews ascending the Temple Mount is denied the right to pray and are always under constant observations to assure they do not even squint, close their eyes for more than a second or two or especially move their lips without making obvious conversation and should any Jew dare to pray they are arrested and barred from the Temple Mount for often a minimum of six months. UNESCO refuted the claim for al-Aqsa to include the Western Wall but did grant the coverage for much of the Old City though the definition will need to be granted before any definitive decisions can be stated as fact. Abbas then traveled for a special meeting of the Human Rights Council where he presented charges against Israel seeking their denunciation of Israel, an actual waste of time as they already perform this function regularly as if it was a tradition to be observed. He then pleaded with the United Nations to provide security forces to protect the PA Arabs from the Israeli persecution as it should be enforced that the Israeli security and law enforcement forces are not permitted to interfere with the attacks and murderous intents of Arab terrorists who should be free to do as they desire and murder more Jews without interference, after all, terrorists have feelings too and they deserve to be permitted to realize their aspirations. One wonders how they could ever become martyrs if the Israelis are barred from defending themselves or their enforcement personnel from applying the law throughout the land and protecting all the peoples from threats and attacks from those who are seeking martyrdom to serve Allah. Should the United Nations in their infinite mediocrity decide to actually send international troops to presumably defend the Arabs from some presumably racist squad of murderers who have been shooting innocent Arab men for no reason simply on the circumstantial evidence that they are holding a knife chasing after a bleeding person and blood dripping from their raised knife; what else could be more demanding than for the United Nations to provide troops to protect that person carrying and running with a bloodied blade, after all they might trip and stab themselves as well as any Israeli they can catch. Perhaps Abbas should go straight to the Arab and Muslim world and request they send such troops to protect the right of Arabs to murder freely and bring pride to their family who might have received more money and greater pride had they tripped and fatally wounded themselves making themselves martyrs.

This was the cartoon which festooned the Facebook pages and homepage of the Palestinian Authority as well as the Fatah Party homepage, both organizations headed by Mahmoud Abbas who has editorial approval for all posts presumably.

The fear is that the United Nations might take a vote in the General Assembly which would readily pass a resolution approving for any United Nations countries wishing to assist with the keeping of order that protects and defends the Arab rights to pursue their privilege of special recognition within the society and secure their families receive the generous rewards given the most valued family members of those who attain status as shahids. What could be any more obvious that the Arabs must be permitted to become shahids if they so choose as it is the right of every Arab both in the PA controlled territories, Jerusalem, Gaza, Judea, Samaria and even within Green Line Israel to reach for the greatest privilege and respect which a family and individual receive when one achieves the status as a shahids, a martyr in the plain and course languages such as English. What happens when some of these potential shahids find out that the only path open to achieve this respected place of privilege is to attack the protection force placing them in a position where they must defend themselves against such attacks and resort to shooting these attackers granting them their wish to become shahids? We can tell you what will happen. The United Nations approved troops will become the new enforcers of the peace. Maybe it is for the best that the Israelis would never allow these troops entry and the General Assembly does not have the power of binding resolution such that as soon as any member nation declines the resolution from the General Assembly the resolution loses all power and is made null and void, very much like when the Arab League refused to accept United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 from November 29, 1947 which called for the partition of the lands from the British Mandate west of the Jordan River to form an Arab and Jewish States but the Arabs preferred to attack the nascent Jewish State in an attempt at genocidally removing it from the map on its first day of life. After that idea failed, as did two more attempts to push the Jews into the sea, the Arabs have put forth that they should be permitted to reverse their decision to refuse Resolution 181 and have it enacted today over a half a century later after their decision to reject it actually permanently nullified the resolution making it null and void. Live and learn and watch as the idea of imposing United Nations troops anywhere within the lands under Israeli protection, which is all of the land west of Jordan, and they are not even permitted to exit their plane or cross the Allenby Bridge, whichever route they use to attempt entry, and that should about close the deal right there. Chalk up another failure of either Abbas, the United Nations, or conceivably both.

What is written here could apply to any organization, it is just that the “Israel Teachers’ Union,” for the reason of continued acceptance, or so was the excuse given to those who objected, that accepted and signed the World Teachers’ Association (WTA) what can only be described as another BDS supporting document which was presented supporting the statement, “the continued Israeli occupation of the West Bank, the existence of illegal Israeli settlements there and their impact on the lives of Palestinians, including access to water along with the blockade of Gaza, has imposed severe restrictions on economic and social development in Palestine.” Unsurprisingly enough this has caused a split in the membership of the teachers’ union in Israel. What has developed is surprising in that the teachers who have been most outspoken against the signing of this odious document being threatened by the post-Zionist members of their union with legal actions to shut them out of the debate. Perhaps the time has come for a real Zionist Teachers’ Union which supports their nation in its life or death struggle over the acceptance of the pro-BDS document such as the one their leadership found so important and likely not all that odious a document, if not a document with which they were in total agreement, just so they would not have been barred from the WTA. One needs to wonder if these same representatives were to attend a META (Middle East Teachers Association) if such an organization were to exist, and a document was drafted demanded the “Right of Return” for over five-million so-called Arab Palestinian refugees’ would this document also be acceptable to remain as accepted by Israel’s enemies? One might be led to believe they would as such would not be in contradiction to their personal beliefs as they have no feelings or belief in Israel as the home nation of the Jewish People but rather as the democratic multicultural conglomeration of people bordering the Mediterranean Sea with no particular special character.

 

There can be no middle ground between teachers who are Zionist and believe in Israel as a separate and special nation unique among the nations as the reestablishment of the ancient state of the Jewish People after near two-millennia and the establishment of the G0d given opportunity for the Jewish people to once again be the People of the Book and a light unto the nations established to give hope to those in the world who desire a better world that was established by Hashem, formed by Hashem, styled by Hashem and commanded by Hashem to carry His message to the rest of the people on the planet He created, formed and established to celebrate the glory, magnanimity, supremacy and transcendence of Hashem. Even if one only desires that Israel be the nation for the Jewish People and the only place on all of Earth that the Jewish People would be able to flee should the world once again become overcome with Jew hatred ready to end the existence of the Jews once again, the aim of powers and empires almost too numerous to list over the last thirty-five-hundred years of history to genocidally murder the Jewish People starting with the Ancient Egyptians and further attempted by the following empires and forces with such intents but not limited to: the Amalekites, Chaldean Empire, Philistine Empire (not in any way related to ‘Palestinians’ as the Philistine people were of Greek extraction and were absorbed into other peoples and ceased existence over two-thousand years ago), Babylonian Empire, Assyrian Empire, Persian Empire (Haman and his sons against Mordechai and Queen Esther and the Megillah of Esther and the celebration of Purim), Greek Empire, Roman Empire, Byzantine Empire, Crusaders, Spanish Empire, Ottoman Turkish Empire, British Empire, Austro-Hungarian Empire, German Empire (part of the cleansing of German tribal lands of the accursed Catholics and Jews based on writings of Martin Luther), French Empire (during the purification of France under the troops controlled by the Catholic Church and the French Cardinal and the one pursuit the Royalty joined with the Catholics despite their struggles for outright control of France), Russia Empire Under the Czars (the driving force behind the Czar’s orders for a book be written which could be utilized to prove Jewish conspiracies to control governments and as being a danger to the rule of the Czars which became “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion which is used in numerous Arab and Muslim countries to explain their suspicions and hatreds of the Jews even today), Nazi Empire, Soviet Empire (under Stalin who claimed the Jews were the ultimate Capitalists and thus enemies of the State and an unacceptable threat despite many Jews, including Leon Trotsky, being instrumental supporters of the revolution), and who next, the Arab forces such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad, ISIS and other Arab Islamist supremacists or potentially Iran where chants of “Death to Israel” are even more common than those of “Death to America” both of which are regular staples of the Friday after prayer services but before nightfall.

 

The fact that an Israeli Teachers’ union representatives value sitting amongst those who would have them murdered if given the opportunity to do so without having any direct involvement more than they value the Zionist principles that values the survival of the Jewish People over being politically correct or fitting in and everything else involved with going along in order to get along is enough to make one feel ill and to demand that those teachers who understand and value the continued love of and dedicated to the preservation of Israel as the Jewish State and sole refuge for all the Jewish People reestablished as the historic right of the original indigenous peoples in our lands to depart the company of traitors and start a second teachers’ union with a Zionist agenda and that fully supports both Israel and the Jewish People. The fact that members of the Israeli Teachers’ union would threaten and even consider bringing legal suits against those teachers who would even broach the subject and suggest that signing such an odious document in the first place and then defend it with such threats is further proof that there can be no compromise nor is there any room for dissent from the views of the self-appointed moralists who would condemn their fellow countrymen in such a despicable manner. There is little need to attempt to alter the convictions of these post-Zionist teachers who apparently have co-opted the existing teachers’ union and as is the case in all too many Israeli institutions from the Supreme Court to leadership of the vast majority of political parties to the Israeli Teachers’ union, amongst all too many unions which populate Histadrut and taking similar stands due to their history of extremist leftist and communist control which are almost invulnerable to the forces of change.

 

Nowhere is this more evident than in the community organizations and NGOs such as B’Tselem, New Israel Fund, Breaking the Silence, Gisha, Combatants for Peace, Adalah, Coalition of Women for Peace, Association for Civil Rights in Israel, Alternative Information Center, Bimkom, Ir Amim, Machsom Watch, Public Committee Against Torture in Israel, Physicians for Human Rights- Israel, Women Against Violence and other similarly named NGOs which like the Israel Teachers’ Union are made up of Israelis and usually largely Jewish Israelis who are sold on the same old, tired, tried but failed and failed miserably mantra of land for peace. This is despite the fact that there is not a single evidentiary backing for the concept of Israelis, and especially Jewish Israelis, ever trading a piece of land and receiving even prolonged calm, let alone peace for the efforts. As has been documented repeatedly, every single time there has been the surrendering of lands, not only did that sacrifice not bring peace but has been universally followed by additional violence and often a prolonged and steadily increasing theater of horrific violence. Inevitably it has become known that the violence had been planned ahead of such exchanges specifically to be used as proof that each sacrifice was insufficient to appease the unappeasable appetite for dispossessing Jews of their lands in this their dear, ancient and, for many, holy lands. The first attempt at such a series of events was during the early 1920s when the British struck a deal between the Zionist Congress and the Arab leadership within the area of the British Mandate lands as well as the Arab League and the Mufti of Southern Syria. This deal entailed that in exchange for all the British Mandate Lands east of the Jordan River, constituting approximately 78% of that said Mandate lands, being surrendered of claim for inclusion of the establishment by the Jewish nation and being surrendered for the establishment of an Arab State for the Arabs residing in the areas of Southern Syria, thus the remaining 22% of the lands which constitute the lands west of the Jordan River will be made inviolate and reserved for the Jewish People and their State. This was what was agreed upon and signed by the parties including the British as the Mandated Power to implement the promise of a Jewish State making everything legal and a settled matter well almost settled. This deal was followed by a slowly increasing intensity of violence against the Jews living in areas west for the Jordan River which peaked with rioting and mass assaults on the Jews in 1929 and this calm followed by ramping violence repeated itself peaking again in 1933, in 1936 and again in 1939 and then settled down during the era of World Wat II largely due to the presence of British troops in numbers plus the existence of a Jewish Brigade made up of Jews who volunteered to fight with the British in the Middle East and mostly in northern Africa which was called the Palestine Brigade. The reason was at the time of World War II and before as well as until the name of Palestinian had been co-opted by Yasser Arafat in order to claim the periods when the Jews were always referred to as the Palestinians and those who took the name under Arafat had been called the, wait for it, the Arabs.

 

After World War II the lead-up to the founding of the State of Israel in May of 1948 came and surprisingly enough, the next offer to share the exact lands which the British and the world had claimed was inviolate and reserved solely for the Jewish State. Such is the worth of promises made unto the Jews. Under the United Nations Charter in Article 80 the world body unanimously supported honoring the Mandate system and all agreements made within that framework. This obviously included the agreement made by the by Britain, the power of the Mandate in question, with the World Zionist Congress that the lands west of the Jordan had been set aside solely and inviolate for the Jewish State in exchange for the surrender of the lands east of the Jordan River, which constituted over three-fourths of the Mandated lands. Despite this agreement being in place and obliged to be honored by the United Nations, the General Assembly passed on November 29, 1947, Resolution 181 which suggested the lands west of the Jordan River, the exact lands the British had guaranteed would be inviolate and the United Nations has adopted as its sole policy when ratifying Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, be divided evenly into an Arab and a Jewish States respectively. This generous offer went so far as to divide Israel as in the map below where the orange area of the map would have constituted Israel while the yellow area of the map would have constituted the proposed Arab state. This meant that approximately half of what would have become Israel would have been constituted of the Negev Desert while the yellow areas included largely good farm lands and would have had the short-lived international city of Jerusalem surrounded which would likely have meant that all of Jerusalem as it was at that time would have defaulted to Arab control and being placed beyond the reach of any Jew. The violence ramped up considerably with the rioting and physical attacks on Jews became daily occurrences until May15, 1948, when Israel came officially into being and had war declared on her by at least a half dozen nations who had troops present to force the Jews into the sea or worse.

 

 

1947 United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 Partition Plan accepted by the Jewish Zionist Congress, precursor to an Israeli government, but refused by Arab League thus making the entirety of the Resolution 181 voided and relegated to the trash bin of history.

The threats by Egyptian President Nasser in May and early June and the massing of troops by Egypt and Syria, joined as the United Arab Republic for the duration of this war as an act of unity, on the northern and southern borders of Israel which resulted in the Six Day War was a massive increase culmination since the founding of Israel nineteen years earlier. This threatened attack was the culmination of the continued slow ramping up of violence since the armistice which resulted in an end, though without an actual peace agreement but merely a cessation of hostilities at that time, I believe called a Hudna by Muslims, and resulted in the ultimate violence, as mentioned, the Six Day War. The ceasefire from that conflict remained in place until Yom Kippur morning on October 6, 1973, which could have been claimed to have resulted after Israel had claimed one too many times her willingness to return the Sinai Peninsula in exchange for a real and lasting peace. When we reach the eventual peace with Egypt one might desire to call that the return of the Sinai as not having any lands and received peace, which as far as Egypt is concerned but one need remember that as a part of the peace with Egypt they surrendered any and all claims to the Gaza Strip which has proven to be a continual source of violence and several armed conflicts. Further, the entirety of the peace talks has been about Israel surrendering lands for peace, yet receiving nothing but violence, attacks, terrorism and death. As we have been pointing out, whenever the Jews or Israel as a nation has offered to make peace they have been greeted with more and more violence. When Israel retreated from Southern Lebanon due to ever increasing terrorism it was not even a full year before things had escalated to the point where the withdrawal had become recognized as a complete and utter failure gifting half of Lebanon to Islamist extremists of Hezballah who have driven the violence to a fevered pitch twice resulting in two wars and the ramping of the threats and rhetoric has already started once again, building up to what is difficult to envision with the entirety of Syria in flames and Hezballah having suffered serious losses may be seeking another conflict with Israel to regain some of their sorely lacking respect from the Lebanese or perhaps instill some fear into them. Meanwhile, when Israel made its peace with Jordan, Israel offered to return to Jordan the lands the Jordanians had been illegally possessing from 1948 through the start of the Six Day War in 1967, a full nineteen years. There has been almost nothing but violence and terrorist attacks ever since. When in 1999 with the aid of United States President Clinton Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak offered Yasser Arafat the entirety of what Arafat had told President Clinton he would require in order to make a lasting peace with Israel. When after a late night of arm-twisting Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak made his offer which was met by Arafat storming from the conference and jetting back to Ramallah and almost immediately starting the second intifada, an unprecedented assault with homicide bombers blowing themselves up in pizza parlors, restaurants, hotels, bus depots, malls, discotheques and wherever a crowd of innocent Israelis could be found. This eventually led to Israel constructing the separation barrier which succeeded in preventing much of the violence.

 

This is the same separation barrier which the world has only understood to be the tall cement walls through urban areas which were necessitated to prevent the prevalent sniper fire which was slaughtering innocent civilians. For over three-fourths of the length of the separation barrier it consists of a tall chain-link fence. The perception of the barrier as a wall is simply another case of successful casting of the Israelis as being harsh oppressors which has become the adopted trope from the leftist socialist media, not at all surprising when one realizes the realities that the two greatest murderers of Jews have been the National Socialists and the International Socialists, or the Nazis and Communists. As the media in Europe and lagging almost a decade behind but making up the ground on the outside is the United States have both turned sharply leftist their reporting has simply become a form to bludgeon Israel and depict her government as a tyranny despoiling the virgin lands and victimizing the most innocent of babes in the pristine woodlands, never mind these babes carry axes to slaughter Israelis at every opportunity and then cry that the Israelis are invading and despoiling their neighborhoods when law enforcement and investigatory agencies seek to find and arrest the perpetrators of often the most heinous of crimes. Such was the uproar after two cousins murdered the Fogels, the mother, father and two brothers, Yoav, 11, Elad, 4, and their tiny little sister and newest member to the family, three-month-old Hadas as they slept one Shabbat Night. Or the slaughter of four rabbis in morning prayers in a synagogue in an ultra-Orthodox neighborhood in West Jerusalem of Har Nof murdered by cousins, Odai Abed Abu Jamal, 22, and Ghassan Muhammad Abu Jamal, 32, who claimed they were avenging what they saw as a threat to the al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in East Jerusalem a good four or five miles from where these monsters slaughtered and then butchered with 9mm handguns, knives and axes included in prayer at the time of their slaughters almost as if making a pagan sacrifice of the four holy men still wearing their Prayer Shawls and Phylacteries with Prayer Books still in hand, not that such would have been necessary as each probably knew the prayer better than most but also know that it is an even more special mitzvah to read each day’s prayers as if you are seeing the words for the first time and feel their wonderment and immerse oneself in the wonder, sincerity, passion and adoration that comes only on the first time reading such words of power and divine beauty, Rabbi Moshe Twersky, Rabbi Cary Levine, Rabbi Avraham Goldberg and Rabbi Aryeh Kopinsky and then added the first police officer, a traffic policeman who was unarmed, Zidan Saif, a noble and brave Druze who was simply attempting to pull others out of harm’s way when these savages murdered once more as if their blood lust had yet to be satisfied.

 

In memory of these and all the other victims of the return to our ancient lands and to those for whom these lands will be their final refuge from the spreading hatreds, our teachers need leave the fold of their union and build one of their own fashioned by their hands with the eternal guidance from Hashem who will honor such as it honors his people and his lands. There are those amongst us who realize and know that despite the fragile nature of the existence of Israel, an existence so frail that without the aiding hands of Hashem it could not be, that this existence is still the safest of all places upon this earth for a Jew at these times. Make a teachers’ union that chooses Hashem, which chooses Israel, which recognized the special task we Jews have entered in our covenant with Hashem. Make a union that teachers can safely say as our forefathers said when receiving the Law at Mount Sinai, “We will obey and we will hear.” They can risk such faith as the teachers’ union you will form will be of such dedication to Hashem, to our land of Israel and to imparting that love in every lesson you teach. Make a new teachers’ union as the established union no longer serves as the ideal example that you wish to follow and honor. Make a union that teachers will proudly exclaim that they chose honor over acceptance. Form a union for real teachers who take moral stands and who form in their students and morale of the spirit which endows them with a moral and fulfilling education. Make a union to remember those we have lost, learn from all who remain and take the lessons from history to arm themselves for tomorrow. And lastly form a teachers’ union for your own self-worth and that will fill you with pride and thus make of you better teachers.

The Uninterpretable Faces of Mahmoud Abbas

 

Once again we were given a view of Mahmoud Abbas in April of 2015 actually speaking the truth in English laying everything out on the table for all to witness when, as Palestinian Authority President, he once again demanded a one-state solution for “Palestine” repeated publicly that all of Israel is “Occupied Palestine.” Despite these statements from Mahmoud Abbas as Palestinian Authority President, United States President Obama persists in demanding that Israel surrender to the Arabs all of the lands Israel liberated from Jordanian occupation. The solution demanded by the Palestinian Liberation Organization, Palestinian Authority, Fatah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and numerous other identities behind which sinister demands are made under one title and denied by the very author under another title but the truth can be seen in the maps in their school texts, maps festooning their office walls, and numerous other official symbols and often drawn on posters which are paraded through the streets all showing a Palestine replacing all of Israel. What is often done by Mahmoud Abbas, we have come to call the smiling suit routine which is used across the Arab and Muslim world during negotiations, he will be at a conference or during negotiations, just as the Iranians have done to draw the P5+1 in negotiations to continue to permit more and more until they have compromised all the way to the Iranian demands, is to simply smile and nod his head while not actually agreeing to anything and simply sitting patiently waiting for the Western nations to slowly turn more and more of the contested lands over to the Arabs for their false state of Palestine. There have already been calls made in Europe to turn all of Jerusalem over to the false flag of Palestine granting them an undivided Jerusalem which they will blame on the Israelis for not being clear on what they meant when they demanded Jerusalem remain undivided, after all, giving the entirety to the Arabs as their capital city leaves Jerusalem undivided.

 

The Fatah’s Charter states bluntly and completely up front for all to read if they would ever care to become informed and realize the truth, “Our struggle will not cease unless the Zionist state is demolished, and Palestine is completely liberated.” The Hamas Charter states a similar desire for the complete liberation through the destruction of Israel, of all of Palestine and go one step further demanding that they continue to struggle and conquer lands while also being permitted murdering every last Jews on planet Earth. The ISIS Charter also calls for the eradications of the Jews as well as the Christians, Hindus, Baha’i, Buddhists, and even Shiite Muslims and any Sunni Muslims who do not meet their definitions of purity of the faith until all of the people of Earth have converted or been killed. All of these different Islamist driven groups, be they terrorists or terror states or simply madmen bent on world conquest and unification to their exact form of Islam just as it is demanded of them by their interpretation of the Quran. The various Palestinian terror groups, and that includes Mahmoud Abbas and the various groups he presides over which include and may not be limited to the PLO, Fatah Party, Palestinian Authority, State of Palestine, Commander of the Palestinian Armed Forces and Security Services, Commander and Financial Officer of the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades and who knows how many other titles under which he can make whatever conflicting statement today and in another position claim that that version of his persona never said such a ludicrous lie such as the exact statement he made the previous day. It is a perfect system to never ever be pinned down as agreeing to any position simply by changing which suit you are wearing each day. What makes this even more difficult for Western World leaders to understand is that virtually all of the suites worn by Mahmoud Abbas start to look the same as he dizzily jumps from one persona to another even during a single meeting such that he can nod knowingly to one proposition and when at the end of the meeting his signature should normally be placed on the agreement he apparently supported becomes something he has never seen and would never accept.

 

Another deceit used by Mahmoud Abbas in all of his guises is his demand to continue to have the “right to continue the struggle.” The struggle he refers to is the continued terrorist war against Israel until Israel has been destroyed and usurped by the pseudo-state of Palestine. In this manner Abbas can continue even after being gifted what the Western leaders have falsely believed was what Abbas had demanded in order to end the Arab-Israeli war, and do not for a second think of this as anything but the continuation of the Arab-Israeli war under which the Arab states realized they were unable to defeat Israel on the field of battle so they adopted the political war rather than open war. The concept which permits the ever increased demands implied or directed is covered by the politically correct terminology of “Global Fairness” which implies that the undeveloped world had been so decimated and harmed by the colonial masters that they are permitted to overstep any boundaries allowed in the resolution of normal conflicts as their right to redress for their former degradations. This is a position which the Obama Administration firmly believes in and also sees the Arab-Israeli conflict as Israel having been the colonial occupier against whom the downtrodden Palestinians have the right to compensations even to the point of the destruction of the State of Israel if that is what will allow them to have their perceived victim status relieved. The preposterousness of this argument need only take a quick look back to May 13, 1948 and one will witness the true colonial power in the history of this particular region, Great Britain, and the colonial power to the lands just north was France, both of whom were overseeing mandates, promises, to form states for the various peoples including for the Jews. The problem is that the Arabs, especially the Muslim Arabs, refuse to recognize the termination of their ownership of these lands as they once ruled them and thus must always rule them, and do not get them started on Andalusia, their name for Spain which they also claim should belong to the Muslim Arab Empire, delusions can be so much fun and equally dangerous when held by people heavily armed. Israel is made to appear to be a colonial power because Israel is a modern, technically capable, post-industrial society on a par with the rest of the Western World and as all the colonial powers were members of the Western World and Israel is perceived as a member of the Western World, then Israel must be a colonizing entity. It is the exact logic which goes that cows are mammals and my pet Weimaraner is a mammal so my pet must be a cow. This is one of the oldest deceits used in logic arguments to muddy the waters and if one side sticks adamantly to such an argument, it makes any further discussion useless and only leading to going further down the rabbit hole, which must have been dug by a cow as a rabbit is a mammal. The “Global Fairness” condition permits continued aggressions as permitted and understood reason for continued aggressions even after all has presumably been said and done but are permitted as the aggrieved party is considered so technologically outdone by the colonial party that these inconveniences must be understood and simply considered some bothersome but harmless annoyance to be tolerated until it eventually stops naturally. Of course those claiming this as harmless are not the same entity which is having bombs, IEDs, shooters, large rock throwing gangs assaulting vehicles, night invasions which murder entire households as was committed to the Fogels of Itamar, and numerous other terror and outright assaults daily as the Europeans demand Israel never respond to such violences committed against her civilians, her innocent civilians.

 

The recent events which transpired in Vatican City were simply another assault upon the existence of the Jewish State by the Catholic Church. The Popes who preceded Pope Francis, Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI, did some very good work in attempting to remove much of the animosities and make reparations for the damages performed by the Catholic Church over the centuries to the Jewish People which included such horrors as being burned alive and often being chased from towns after having the majority of their belongings, especially items of value, confiscated and threatening a fate much worse should the Jews continue to foment arguments over such trivialities and other offences emanating from replacement theology. Pope Francis will not be continuing in this work of reconciling the differences and making at least partial reparations and confessions for the sins of the past but rather has taken a definitive stance against Israel seemingly because it is the State of the Jews and is an abomination in the eyes of those who see the Jews as a condemned people cast aside by G0d to roam the earth facing degradations and difficulties wherever they go never to return to their holy lands given them by a covenant with G0d as their doing so deprives the Catholic Church of their claim as the only true chosen of G0d. This is in part what is suspected as being behind Pope Francis and his all but groveling before Mahmoud Abbas and presumably, though there may have been a mistranslation, calling Abbas “an angel of peace” making it appear that Mahmoud Abbas has sought peace and Israel has refused to simply sign the agreement and make peace with Abbas. This entirely flips everything onto its head and will commit the Catholic Church back into its former depths of sins against their fellow man as they once again attempt to maintain grievances against the Jews and especially support efforts which aim to erase the Jewish State which Pope Francis appears to see as an abomination. Such was likely behind Pope Francis signing a treaty with the pseudo-state of Palestine and Pope Francis is likely to actually produce some map representing the pseudo-state of Palestine; the only question is whether said map will have any room for Israel or will it represent the eradication of Israel replacing the Jewish State with an Arab entity which will commit a genocidal cleansing of the lands to rid it of any Jewish presence. After that would be completed then would start the cleansing of Christians just as Bethlehem has been nearly completely cleansed of its Christian population which was approaching 80% of the population and now has dwindled below 20% and the city of Bethlehem has been reduced to ruin as there no longer exists any actual and productive commerce in what had been a thriving city with a proud heritage.

 

Additionally to the support Pope Francis has given to Mahmoud Abbas in his efforts to eradicate Israel, President Obama is quietly working with the French on a resolution to be presented to the United Nations Security Council to set tentative boundaries around which Israel must reach an agreement which is acceptable to Mahmoud Abbas. The definition of acceptable is any agreement the silent smile wearing a suit will sign. Of course we all know there does not exist an agreement which leaves the Jews with even a square millimeter of land which Abbas would find acceptable. Of course Abbas will sit through numerous meetings and listen to the various offers nodding his head with the smile plastered in place resembling a bobble head in the rear window of a vehicle on a potholed cobblestone thoroughfare. At the end Mahmoud Abbas will be nowhere to be found for the all-important signing agreement instead one of his various underlings, who also share his propensity for switchable titles, who will claim to be signing in Abbas’s stead. Once the fanfare has calmed and the celebratory back-slapping has concluded Mahmoud Abbas will appear to denounce the agreement and make a particular point that he did not sign this abomination and he will soon be firing the idiot who usurped powers which were not his. Of course the underling losing just one of his many titles will still collect a fat paycheck each week, actually numerous paychecks covering his varied titles. President Obama is dead set on forcing peace on the situation no matter who he has to sell down the river to get there. If Israel needs to be cut back to the original General Assembly divisions which the Arab League refused choosing instead to go to war to eliminate the Jews entirely, an effort which failed miserably in all things except one, it invalidated the offer, as any General Assembly Resolution passed is merely a proffered solution to a situation and as soon as one side refuses or demands changes to the agreement, it invalidates the agreement. But if that were to become Mahmoud Abbas’s demand, then President Obama would attempt to move heaven and earth to force Israel into the defined three cantons at best loosely connected as the neighboring Arab state had similar definition of three areas with both groups having the borders meeting in such a manner as to permit both groups to transverse from one canton to their next. A Map of the divisions below will show how unworkable such a set up would have proven to be and was simply a disaster waiting to happen. The world may have been spared the disaster by the Arab League rejection though their reasons were not the results which came of their choice for war rather than sharing the land.

 

 

UN Palestine Partition Versions of 1947 and included within UN General Assembly Resolution 181 which was rejected by the Arab League negating the UN Resolution as if either side rejects such a UN Resolution which is non-binding, it invalidates the entire agreement rendering it mute from that point forward. Jerusalem was to be managed by a corpus separatum (Latin: “separate entity”) set up consisting of international groups most likely to be rotated. This offer was accepted by the Zionist Congress but having any General Assembly Resolution accepted by one side and rejected by the other is simply one hand clapping, useless.

The Western World has placed all their eggs in one basket which is being carelessly tossed about and treated with disregard by Mahmoud Abbas as his aim is not for peace but for conquest of Israel followed by a genocidal solution to any Jewish claims as the dead have no claim, especially if bulldozed into a mass grave. That was the desired goal in the 1948-49 War which the Arabs named the War to Eliminate the Jewish State and Israel has simply accepted as her War of Independence. The Six Day War in June of 1967 was another war to eliminate Israel this time by driving the Jews into the sea. The Yom Kipper War in October 1983 was a surprise assault catching the Israelis completely unprepared initially appearing to reverse the losses of the Six Day War and again drive the Jews into the Mediterranean Sea but the final results simply reestablished the results from June of 1967 as the Israelis retreated back to those lines upon the insistence of the entirety of the world. This was when the Arab League joined the efforts which the Russians had begun in 1964 with the formation of the PLO under Yasser Arafat. This was to be a terror war of attrition which would wear Israel down and eventually leave Israel helpless and make the conquest that much easier. So far this has failed. What is interesting is trying to find what occupied lands was Yasser Arafat and his second in command, Mahmoud Abbas, were attempting to liberate. The PLO Charter answers that question quite clearly, the PLO was created by the KGB and populated with a leadership specifically chosen by the KGB who also had trained the leaders and then any individuals who joined the efforts and was deemed worthy would travel to Russia for intensive training. The Charter called for the annihilation and complete destruction of the Jewish State of Israel. The intent was to completely eradicate any vestige of the Jewish presence which was Israel including pushing the Jews into the sea. At the time of the formation of the PLO in 1967 the Six Day War was three years in the future and thus the only occupied lands the PLO could be referring to was the State of Israel which resulted from the War in 1948-49 in which the modern state of Israel was formed and the Green Line set denoting the position of the front lines at the cessation of the fighting. The Arab League demanded that the Green Line be referred to solely as an armistice line and was to never denote the boundary for the State of Israel. This was demanded by the Arabs so that they would have a reason to claim they had never recognized Israel as they never signed an agreement setting an actual border. This farce has been carried forth to the present day as the Arabs see the State of Israel being forced to retreat behind the Green Line and they can return to believing that no final border has been assigned thus Israel is simply a figment of the Jews furtive imaginations and nothing more. This imagination that Israel was never actually properly established appears to be the game that Pope Francis is planning on playing with President Obama dancing right alongside as they pretend that all of Israel will soon be given to the Arabs and it will become an Islamist State in which Christians will become the target of choice as the Jews will have already been eliminated. Perhaps somebody should show Pope Francis the population figures for the Christians for all of MENA (Middle East and North Africa) where in every nation the numbers of Christians are dropping precipitously while only in Israel are the numbers of Christians increasing and ask him again who are the friends and protectors of the Christians in the Arab and much of the Muslim worlds. Somehow I really doubt even such evidence would move his heart as it is a cold weighted stone heavy in his chest spouting hatreds to the Jews and Israel.
