Lamenting the Palestinian Lack of Statehood

 

Two world leaders have come out recently lamenting their failure to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Their words, or the way my ears heard and eyes read their statements made me feel they were more lamenting the lack of a Palestinian State and the fact they were unable to diminish Israel greatly, if not completely, in the making of such a state. Of course the two were President Obama and Secretary General Ban ki-Moon. As we have beaten President Obama’s anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic feelings to such an extent as to make a bronze statue to the man, let us instead play with the soon to be ex-Secretary General’s statements and the lack of validity or value in them. Actually one almost has to feel for the man, who had ruled through a decade of opening auditory lamentations against Israel at opening ceremonies for the General Assembly, ten years of “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People” and the complete series of Durban World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance which could also have been called the let’s pretend that Israel is the cause of all the world’s problems from hunger to lack of water to the endlessly revolving around the sun going nowhere conferences. Still, the poor man from South Korea is listing the inability to form a Palestinian state as the main failure of his time at the United Nations and not the complete meltdown of the Middle East, the loss of two nations, Syria and Libya, into roiling cauldrons of suffering and death, and the rise of anti-Semitism worldwide to epidemic levels and the beginning stages of destabilization of near the entirety of Europe all accomplished with the inept leadership, or lack thereof, of the United States and most of Europe where liberal progressivism has run unchecked all but succeeding in their aim to end borders and encourage loss of definition of the word nation. Actually, the decline of Europe may be seen as credit to his ability to actually accomplish some great achievement during his decade as Secretary General. Well, we all should vie to feel good about ourselves and see something as an accomplishment even if it may mean the end of civilization as we know and define it.

 

Secretary General Ban ki-Moon stated, “It has strengthened radicals and weakened moderates on both sides. Making matters worse is a dangerous vacuum within the international community as crises elsewhere claim the attention of world leaders.” Imagine the chutzpah of the man stating the obvious that there exist “crises elsewhere claim the attention of world leaders” and finding that a deficiency as it will establish “a dangerous vacuum within the international community” in which Israel skates free from the constant pounding he must feel they deserve for not committing suicide at his behest. Ban ki-Moon’s self-flagellation came on cue at the United Nation’s annual “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People,” held every November 29th which just happens to actually be the day when the partition for the formation of Israel was decided, the even division of the lands between the Jordan River and Mediterranean Sea granting the Arabs the choice lands and giving Israel lands consisting of over two-thirds being Negev Desert yet still the Arab League refused the settlement and instead made plans to invade Israel on the very morning of her independence. That day, Israeli Independence Day and the first day of the initial war to annihilate the Jewish State which took two years to fail, though it did manage to wrest the lands of Gaza, Judea and Samaria (Gaza and West Bank by Jordanian naming), was also renamed by the Arabs as Naqba Day, the day they failed to murder the Jewish homelands. The Arabs should thank Israel and the Jews as we have given them two of the Palestinian Arabs biggest holidays, Naqba Day and United Nation’s annual “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.” But let us get into the minutia of these supposed failures.

Ban ki-Moon and all the Palestinian Arabs and their multitudes of supporters from around the world and loudest on Europe, well, next to the flame fanning by the Palestinian Arabs themselves (especially recently but it finally rained) all could have at any point followed through on their desires to force the issue and bring everything before the World Court for final arbitration and let the best side win. Of course they would never think of holding a factual and legal hearing for reaching a decision knowing that their lies play so much better in the world media and across the many platforms where the world stage is carried out. Demanding the destruction of the Jews is the longest running show on the world’s stage and yet such has never succeeded, but not for lack of trying. The world need understand that Israel is going nowhere as we are here to stay, period, end of discussion. But if you insist, please do take your show before the World Court and plead your case. You can invite Mahmoud Abbas and his cohort of criminals who have made a business of robbing their subjects blind squirrelling away billions of dollars and Euros, the Arab League, leaders from Europe and around the world and give each their hour on the stage to conduct their version of events, promises and that which must be because they wish it and then Israel will simple, silently present her case using actual documents. The first document will be the San Remo Resolution followed by the Treaty of Sèvres and the Treaty of Lausanne all topped off by Article 80 of the United Nations Charter which states that the Mandate System set up by these previous treaties will be enforced and recognized by the United Nations as will all treaties made under the authority of the League of Nations. But we understand that it is far more satisfying deriding the Jewish State day in and day out than it is actually living up to promises and solving the problem that just keeps on giving. How else would the world bodies and leaders dump on Israel if there were no evil designs to accuse the Jews of having committed?

 

The favorite statements are the ones where the claim is that the Palestinians only desire the lands gained by Israel resulting from their defending themselves from Jordanian invasion where Israel liberated the lands occupied by Jordan for the nineteen years since the 1948 War to exterminate the Jewish State which should have been the end of any discussion. This is the lie and every last political charlatan tells ad-nauseum to the point that this particular Big Goebbelsian Lie has become accepted fact, but it will never stand up to close scrutiny which is why the plight of the Arab Palestinians will never be taken before an actual tribunal. Mahmoud Abbas has stated repeatedly, as had Yasser Arafat before him, that the Arabs will never recognize Israel as the State for the Jewish People. This is simply his repeating the findings of the Khartoum Resolution which included the “Three No’s”: “no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, no negotiations with Israel.” The truth of the intentions of the Palestinian Arab leadership now, past and future can be interpreted from the textbooks with which they train their children for total war against Israel and the Jews and steep them in a continual immersion of hatreds and fill them with lies. But please do not take our word for this and instead take some time at your leisure and read a concise report which includes actual copies of lessons and other important inclusions in these texts named A 25 Page Exec Summary: Jews and the Jewish State in Schoolbooks Used by UNRWA: De-legitimization, Demonization and Indoctrination to War.

 

There is one final set of refutations which need be presented. The first is the numbers of refugees. From 1948 through 1967 the total number of Arabs who became refugees, many simply leaving on their own volition and at the behest of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini (Arabic: محمد أمين الحسيني‎‎) who promised them that Israel would be destroyed by the invading armies from at least a half dozen Arab nations within a few days of their 1948 invasion intended as a genocide of the Jews and they would gain a share of all the Jew’s treasures, came out slightly under one-million and the number of Jews becoming refugees thrown from their homelands in Arab and Muslim lands where many of their families had resided for hundreds if not over a thousand years (not including those from Europe after World War II who are a different almost one-million) also totaled just under one-million thus nearly equal (there were approximately seventy-five-thousand to as much as two-hundred-thousand more Jews but about the same numbers resettled in Israel as there were Arabs losing their lands for numerous reasons). The difference is Israel welcomed their brothers and sisters to Israel and settled them and they and their families live productive lives as full citizens of Israel as do the Arabs who either remained or managed after the 1948-9 war returned to their lands within Israel escaping attempts to lock them away as political weapons in refugee camps by their Arab brothers and sisters. Then the Arab League demanded a separate entity to care for the Arab refugees and their own rules which allowed for the refugee status to become a caste label passing from parent to child on from generation to generation forever. Had the Arabs cared as much for their fellow Arabs as much as the Jews did for their fellow Jews there would have been no refugee situation. On the other hand, had the Israelis done as the Arabs had with their fellow Arabs there would likely be just as many Jews as refugees today as there are Palestinian Arab refugees.

 

There are other lies told and accepted around the world. The next biggest is that Israel is carrying out a war of extermination, a genocide against the Palestinian Arabs. How the numbers of Palestinian Arabs went from under one million to approximately five to as high as seven and a half million while being exterminated by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) begs the question of how such could happen. Is the IDF really that incompetent that there are five to ten times as many Palestinian Arabs today as their were in 1948 despite the supposed attempts by Israel to wipe them out. Trust there is absolutely no plan to murder Palestinian Arabs as a whole except to defend Israel and Israelis from assaults by terrorists. There is also the claim that the Arabs have not been permitted to vote in Israeli elections. This is both a falsehood and misdirection. The Arabs who reside in Israel are Israeli citizens and are permitted full rights including the vote and there are Arab Israelis elected to the Knesset, the Israeli Parliament. The Palestinian Arabs have not had an election since 2005 as in Gaza Hamas rules in a dictatorial manner and will not permit elections for fear of losing their hold to Islamic Jihad, Fatah or other forces and in Judea and Samaria Fatah has refused under Mahmoud Abbas to hold elections as they also fear losing power. One has to remember that Mahmoud Abbas is President of the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the Chairman of the Fatah Party and also the Chairman of the PLO and only permits election in the Fatah Party by the Executives who are all Abbas appointees thus guaranteeing his being renamed as Chairman and refuses to risk his other positions. So, one might ask why the Palestinian Arabs are not voting in Israeli elections. The answer is simply, they are not Israeli citizens but PA citizens residing in a semiautonomous area within Israel having their own form of self-government. Allowing them to vote in Israeli elections would be the same as permitting Canadians vote in the United States elections because they reside in North America too. Further, has the PA desired to actually have a state they were offered 94% of the West Bank, half of Jerusalem and all of Gaza by Ehud Barak in 2001 at the Taba Summit which were the culmination of almost three years of negotiations which finally failed and then a similar offer was proffered by Ehud Olmert in 2007 which was also rebuffed by Abbas et al and thus could have had their state simply by agreeing with these which have been the most generous offers to date. The main reasons that Abbas has refused these offers for a Palestinian Arab state is simply, he also demands that between five and eight million Arab refugees be permitted to take up residence not in their Palestinian state but in Israel with full citizenship and financial assistance in order to make reparations for their refugee status and suffering at the hands of their fellow Arabs. What many people are unaware of is that there is a large Palestinian refugee camp outside Gaza City and another outside Nablus, the PA operational capital city. Both of these camps like the others separate Arabs from Arabs with those outside the barbed wire free citizens while those inside the barbed wire are refugees. In all too many cases there are members of the same family residing on opposite sides of the barbed wire with one part free and the other heavily guarded as they are held by fellow Arabs as a weapon with which to destroy Israel, the real target of every Palestinian Arab policy. Their desire for a state is for the destruction of the Jewish State of Israel and once they have destroyed Israel and genocidally murdered every Jew, then the land will likely be turned back to wildlands such as those visited by Sam Clemens in 1887 before the British began importing Arabs in numbers to prevent a Jewish majority population coming into fruition allowing for the formation of Israel.

The final item is how best to solve this situation with the least amount of upheaval and ending the continued and ever more dangerous violence due to terrorism and rockets raining down on Israeli towns, cities, kibbutzim and other civilian areas. The fastest and likely most likely to succeed would be for Israel to annex all of Judea and Samaria setting up a semi-autonomous area where the Arabs who desire independence from Israeli rule would elect their own governance but without an actual state. Those wishing not to live within Israel should be free to find some place they would feel more comfortable and Israel provide for a period fiscal assistance which could be utilized to resettle with an understanding that acceptance of the financial assistance would preclude their ever returning to reside in Israel. Those Arabs residing within the autonomous zone but preferring to become Israeli full citizens would be required to go through a set of courses and prove proficiency with those teachings and need sign a loyalty oath. They should have been known to them that should any member of their family ever aid terrorism in any form they would lose their citizenship permanently and potentially face deportation. Anyone committing or aiding the commission of a terrorist act would subject their family to a hearing where it would be determined how many would face deportation for knowing of the attack and not preventing said attack. Israel would review all materials used in classrooms and schooling and curriculum would be required to have the same standards for subjects as are demanded of all Israeli schools. Israeli history with its Zionist roots and the British manipulations of the situation would be taught as is in other Israeli schools. The same matriculation exams would be given with the same expectations for student accomplishment would be used for graduation and all other uses as in Israeli schools. Those Arabs preferring to reside as a citizen in the semiautonomous zone would vote in Arab elections and forgo voting rights in Israeli elections. All would be granted voting rights for the city within which they reside as well as any community governance. Only Israeli citizens would be permitted the vote in national Israeli elections just as only citizens of the semiautonomous zone would be permitted the vote in their general elections. All residents within the Israeli lands would be held to comply with Israeli laws and would be tried in Israeli courts for any breach of Israeli law. The semiautonomous zone could also set up their own courts for only those citizens of their semiautonomous region. Any legal difference between a citizen of Israel and citizen of the semiautonomous zone will be heard in an Israeli court of law and by the law. Finally, Areas A and B could come under the control of the semiautonomous zone while the bulk of Area C will remain an integral part of Israel (see map above).

The Know-it-Alls Who Know Nothing-at-All

 

There is a group being brought to bear consisting of prominent American Jews, a group of retired, left-wing Israeli military and security officials and an American security think tank seeking to force policies on Israel of their own divinations using the next President of the United States and the auspices of his office to amplify their murmurings into a cacophony of important cackling. These leftist know-it-alls do actually understand one thing very clearly, namely that their ideas would not fly in Israel even if the most leftist of coalitions were to win the next elections. They are completely aware that the political winds in Israel have changed and their kind of leftist has all but ceased to exist. Still, these know-it-alls know that their ideas are the only policies which contain even the slightest slivers of sanity and peace can only be attained if they are placed in charge. They are aware that only through threat, blackmail, and placing Israel in a dangerous position will their ideas be brought successfully to the floor and then granted the obvious merit that they contain. Their plans are the same old plan of Israel make concessions in exchange for chimera of peace accepted if only Israel would take a few last steps demanding these final concessions be offered in writing and which are taken in pocket as the end of the usefulness of another round where any concession made by Abbas resulted in another lesson in Taqiyya, the Islamic religiously inspired art of lying to the non-Muslim in order to advance Islam through lies and deceptions. Israelis on both sides of the Isle are now aware of the deceptions and false promises from Abbas and wish to have no part in any dealings under the pale shadow which is Taqiyya as even the most foolish only play a fool’s gambit repeatedly so many times being burned each time before refusing to return to the poisoned well. But such wisdom is tossed carelessly aside as these know-it-alls who just know that this time their offer will charm the snake charmer and force him to play their tune in directing the venomous serpent.

 

Ron Kampeas of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) wrote a position paper they published titled Pro-Israel heavyweights press hard for 2 states which contains much truth about the composition of the group and their designs to make for themselves a name even if it destroys Israel and results in more murdered Jews. The article explains their plan as it currently sits as, “Two complementary U.S. and Israeli working papers to be launched next week propose immediate actions Israel can take to prepare the ground for two states and a longer-term security structure that aims to satisfy Palestinian ambitions for sovereignty and Israeli security needs.” They point out that these papers are, quote, “are radical departures from the policies of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s current government.” And then even here the author jumps neck deep into the mired swamp of discontentment repeating the leftist canard that the Netanyahu coalition is, “perhaps the most right wing in Israeli history.” The qualifier is to convey that perhaps even as misguided as these leftist groups and individuals may be; the Netanyahu government is equally strident and thus deserving of being undermined if required for peace. The article quotes the Israel Policy Forum board member Alan Solow as having stated, “One doesn’t know what Israel’s government is going to look like in a week,” implying a threat to the coalition that they hold the power to sweep in on new elections which would necessarily bring a more receptive governance. He also criticized Israel more freely as they see the prospects of two states diminishing as more in the Israeli public see it as the moribund error of the past which need remain in their past. Solow insists, “Taking on the perspective from those in the pro-Israel community, the only reasonable Zionist solution is to have two states for two people. Every time a new administration comes into office, these issues get a fresh look, that’s a historical fact.” All of these comments are attempting to make their position appear as the inevitable and only working solution to what has proven to be an intractable problem. Finally they drag out the bogey-man monsters of casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and hedge funder Paul Singer, who have sharply hawkish outlooks. They add that Sheldon Adelson endorsed Trump making him out to be as unhinged as the candidate appears to be as part of his antics to defray his liabilities such as lack of in-depth knowledge of foreign affairs and the plights of the Middle Class. They have set the stage and all is ready for their grand entrance.

 

The Two States for Two Peoples Living in Peace and Security canard has been dragged around and reinflated after each time Mahmoud Abbas, or Yasser Arafat before him, launched an Intifada blowing gaping holes in their balloon using bombs, rocks, Molotov cocktails, knifings, car rammings, suicide bombing, ambush, rockets and outright open warfare. The Arab World has been insisting they will rip out the heart of Israel and strangle it just as soon as the latest Israeli surrender has been duly passed and reentered only to patch it up for another destruction once it has been repaired and a new monetary supplication been added with all insisting that the Palestinian Authority (PA) will accept their proposal outright simply because they know it must. Such faith in the face of adversity is touching and need be honored; but honored does not necessarily mean heeded and obeyed unquestioningly. The repackaging of the identical two state solution then trotting it out with it having been repainted a different color which presumably makes it once again new and worthy solution is so full of holes it is not worth reiterating its fallacies. Suffice it to say that we have all been there, tried that, and found it wanting. The difference between us and those Americans and leftist old school Israelis is that we have watched one botched peace attempt after another all having the same items in common, the idea that only through two states for two people can peace be attained. Perhaps it is time to try a new approach with fresh and new ideas.

 

Allow us to try and propose an idea whose time has come. The Gaza retreat with the rise of Hamas to rule the area had rained down rockets with ever deeper strikes into Israel as the result of function of Iran and/or the Muslim Brotherhood both having some successes in providing rocket motors and even guidance systems used in making mere rockets into guided missiles capable of greater accuracy and thus a greater threat as the increased ranging has placed western Jerusalem within their strike distances out of Gaza; just imagine their range if fired out of Judea and Samaria. Any lasting peace must initially recognize some brutal truths. First and foremost is that there is no difference between the methods of the Islamic State and Hamas and there is no difference in the end goals of Hamas and Fatah, the PLO which spawned the PA, a sanitized venomous snake who despite having the outside washed still had poison readied from the insides. Thus any lands handed over completely to the PA is all but certain to become lands controlled by Hamas and thus the Islamic State taking the fight and presumable glory as the ones who defeated the Israeli contagion from in their midst. Knowing this makes allowing complete control over Judea, Samaria and a redivided Jerusalem is tantamount to a suicide pact with the devil, and not necessarily the devil you know as was proven so effectively in Gaza. Thus it has become evident that the original idea of two states for two people needs to be reevaluated. There is no existing two state solution which would ever provide security and peace for the Israelis and would be a constant threat at ten times the efficiency and abilities than was ever brought to bear upon the lands of Israel. A return to the Green Line would permit those in the area of the Judean Hills to overlook the industrial and residential heartlands of Israel and this would be tantamount to a death warrant. Thus a new and radical concept need be advised, what would have been a radical idea before the Stabbing Intifada which is now a necessity and further has a built in guarantee in that the plan does not require Mahmoud Abbas to accept or sign a single piece of paper, it just demands that he fly a course as it will be placed before him. Even if he throws a temper tantrum and refuses to breathe until he gets his way we should get used to seeing him with puffy cheeks and tears streaming down his chest. It will all make for good drama but further it will make for a solid end to the impasse.

 

Our plan is to simply offer Mahmoud Abbas what we stress will be the final and only offer available and he can take it within seventy-two hours (three days) in which to prepare for the solution being dictated by the liberating power which freed these lands from foreign occupation now exercising their rights under international law and as such this is the final offer and the clock is ticking. The offer for Abbas is he can preside over a semi-autonomous region containing all of Area A and selected parts of Area B as depicted in a map provided him. The semiautonomous region will be permitted a police and security force which will be limited to light weapons. Heavy weapons such as crew served large machine guns over thirty calibers and over will be limited or banned. Armored vehicles will not be permitted as will artillery, rockets, rocket propelled grenades and MANPADS (form of anti-aircraft intercept missile) be banned from their semi-autonomous region. Self-rule within reason will be permitted as will IDF patrols in keeping the peace as required. Schools will be run by the Israeli Ministry of Education and any Madrassa or other schools located in the region will need be licensed and its curriculum be monitored by the Ministry of Education and the Knesset making sure they represent the correct history and are not instigating any terrorist principles or other mix of violent opposition of the governance. Israeli law will be applied throughout all Israel making all places equal before the law. There will be no mandatory IDF service required from the semi-autonomous citizens though they would be eligible and permitted to serve. All the residents of the region will be listed as resident aliens but may petition the Israeli government for citizenship and should they pass a background check and after they have relocated inside an Israeli village or town. They will be required to take a course and prove proficiency of Jewish history as well as Israeli and Zionist histories. The people who reside in the semi-autonomous zone would also receive lessons about Judaic and Israeli histories. Any person committing a terrorist act will have their family exiled along with themselves after they serve any prison time they may receive at their trial. The citizens of the semi-autonomous zone would be subject to Israeli law in addition to their own laws. The semi-autonomous zone would require any laws it imposed would not be contrary to the laws of the State of Israel.

The unfortunate affairs Jews have had with any form of Palestinian political entities would require that the zone be merely semi-autonomous Zone instead of a full-fledged nation is strictly due to providing security and protection for Israel as placing a well-armed separate nation on the heights overlooking Israel where exactly what occurred in Gaza taking place in Judea and Samaria would result in Israel being required to reassert complete control over the Palestinian entity but once granted freedom they would receive recognition in rapid succession by the numerous European nations and the United States. This would result as just mentioned with a belligerent force perched over the beating heart of Israel holding the stake to drive through that selfsame heart. That has been and will remain the reason that Israel must never return to the Green Line, the 1949 armistice lines and is also why any peace between Israel and the Arab world will require their recognizing Israel in her original borders from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. That is the reality which will remain in place for as long as the Arabs, especially the Arab ‘Palestinians,’ desire the destruction of Israel. Lunacy is any plan which forces Israel to return to the pre-Six Day War borders knowing what is known and applying even the slightest bit of logic to the situation. Israel must realize that much of the world including leftist Jews who would not be caught dead returning home are cavalier about Israel and place their leftist utopian propaganda above the concrete facts facing Israel. That explains the Martin Indyks, Dennis Rosses, Aaron David Millers, Jeffrey Goldbergs making statements which would sound more normal coming from the mouth of Khaled Mashal, leader of Hamas. One can wonder but never explain Jews who would sacrifice other Jews or the Jewish State at the altar of political correctness, the modern day version of Baal.

 

This article was written earlier for other reasons, but bears repeating. France had held its first conference with leaders from around the world to solve the Arab/Israeli conflict. They planned to hold a second conference before the end of the year under the idea that they would have a better resolution. Their initial conference, despite not including Israel, was unable to agree on a final position. Part of their confidence is their realization that perhaps all that President Barack Obama needs is a forum to present his solution. They may even be hoping that any resolution would be followed up with Security Council binding resolutions. The French are actually doing this in hopes that it will enhance their international standing. They never have recovered from Waterloo. As with all solutions that do not include Israel, this one too will be unenforceable. The idea that any nation would attempt to invade the lands of the fourth most powerful nuclear armed nation in the world is as ludicrous as it sounds insane.

French diplomats told Haaretz, describing the situation after the meeting between French envoy Pierre Vimont and Israeli officials Monday where the Israelis restated their refusal to cooperate with the French peace plans, the French representatives stated, “Envoy Pierre Vimont’s discussion with Israeli government representatives in Jerusalem was sincere and difficult. The negative Israeli response was predictable, and we will take Israel’s position into consideration. However, we plan to carry on promoting our peace initiative.” Apparently the French establishment is determined to pursue their designs on formulating a peace proposal based on the defunct two state solution, which they feel and believe is fair and acceptable to the nations they are able to gather by year’s end even if Israel is not included in the formulation of the solution. Israeli refusal is based on the insistence for direct party to party negotiations to resolve any differences. Since Israel rejected the French proposals, the Palestinian Authority (PA) accepted the French proposal and is seeking for the Arab League and Nonaligned Nations (NAM) joining the French negotiation in order to formulate a proposal which will facilitate the eradication of Israel through Arab Palestinian refugee and their descendants right to return to within Green Line (1949 Armistice Lines), all five to eight million making Israel just one more Arab majority state which will vote to deport, murder or otherwise deal with their Jewish minority. The PA is simultaneously seeking a preferably binding Security Council Chapter Seven resolution making all Israeli existence beyond the Green Line illegal under International Law believing that United States President Obama will not veto and might even propose such a measure in his closing weeks before the new President, Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, a decision still being voted upon as we write, is inaugurated and such returns to being a dicey issue which remains a third-rail issue.

 

The French, with Egyptian assistance, have already made one run at this which started to be setup back in February 2016 and held in June, with no agreement being accepted by the attending nations and the French vowing to hold a follow-up by the end of the year. France is intending to form a coalition of the willing to reach a completely fleshed-out agreement accepted by and signed onto by the majority of the attending nations whether either concerned party, the Israelis or PA, approve or even accept the invite to join and assist in the drafting a resolution. The French believe that their record as world leaders stretching back century after century to the modern day giving them the right to design, implement and enforce any solution resolved by their conference. The first failed attempt consisted of largely European, Arab and Muslim nations plus the United States breaking-up with acrimony and disagreement leaving the French empty-handed with no two-state agreement to implement by any and all means necessary. How the French plan on forcing any agreement has also not been discussed with some believing that the French conference would be the first step to a Security Council Chapter Seven initiative then enforced using troops under the United Nations command relieving the French of posting an enforcement military contingent. The French even had to pull from the military contingent of NATO as they were unable to continue to provide their share, despite the limited demands being asked, and preferred to sit snug realizing there could be no actual threat to their nation as the Soviet Union threat was gone and any other threat would require hitting France’s neighboring countries thus giving them ample warning time to seek a solution.

 

All this still begs whether the world is ready to place military troops inside Israeli borders engaging the IDF in a general state of war? Would Russia sign on to a second front in the Middle East against the one nation capable of assisting their efforts in what remains of Syria and working against the Islamic State? What about China? China and India are both trading partners with Israel and potential recipients of military and dual use technologies as well as advanced in crop production, irrigation, resource management, computing sciences and numerous other scientific and social areas of research and development from Israel and these trade and sharing relations, to quote a song, have only just begun. Neither nation is to be expected to turn against Israeli interests making an antagonistic enemy out of a developing friendly nation. Other nations from the Middle East are currently so involved in internal conflicts that their participating in any joint military endeavor is next to or absolutely impossible. Examples include but are not limited to Syria, Libya, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan and others. Whether the United States would be even approachable to participate depends heavily on who becomes the next President and which party controls Congress. Canada is currently one nation which can be expected not to attend any such conference, let alone actively participate in any actions against Israel. There are other nations which would never act against Israel even if simply because of emergency aid received often starting early after the emergency and almost always remains being amongst the last to depart and giving a level of aid only matched by the United States. Such nations would include Haiti, Japan, Philippines, Nepal and others. These facts might make fielding a military force capable of engaging the IDF adequately with sufficient force to alter the current realities on the ground. Further, placing troops for making an assault against Israel might be problematic as Jordan and Egypt both have peace treaties with Israel which would preclude their permitting any military force to be mounted from their fronts, their borders.

 

The dream the French envision will not only be a nightmare for Israel should some agreement be concluded but also a nightmare for any and every nation choosing to join in being resolved to force any two state solution which addresses also the right for the Arab Palestinian refugees being relocated within Israel and splitting Jerusalem. Those opting to provide troops will be on the front lines of the war prophesized to incur the greatest casualties of any war throughout history making the blood and bodies to be piled deep upon the plains at Megiddo and others being cut to pieces against the sharp shards of the injurious bolder which is Jerusalem. The New Testament relays the story in Revelations which describes a final battle between good and evil. This is, in appearance, exactly the plan by the French as they appear to include initiating a war solely for and by themselves where no others are pressed into war. But even if France is foolhardy enough to initiate such a war believing that such a conflict would not soon balloon up and explode in their faces, then they are horribly ignorant or simply foolhardy to such a point taking risks beyond any an informed and sane person would pursue. But then again we are speaking about the forcing of an Arab Palestinian State, which would soon fall to Hamas or Islamic State if not a marriage of the two, against Israel so completely losing one’s sanity is all but required when addressing this problem.

 

Armageddon Before and After

Armageddon Before and After

 

Where the French may dare to go has been covered by their leadership though there does appear to be minimal wiggle-room such that they could back down from the threatened result even should the French proposals fail to gain any traction. This determined alternative was stated as France officially recognizing a Palestinian State and potentially delivering them with France even recognizing the actual borders. Should France take such a foolish direction it would all but guarantee a raised level of conflict and a far lesser possibility for the two parties negotiating one with the other. The PA has always had a singular goal from its very start as the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization, a terrorist group) back in 1964, a full three years before the Six Day War of June 1967 when the perverse concept that Judea and Samaria along with Eastern Jerusalem including the Old City, the Kotel and the Temple Mount were being occupied by Israel, not liberated from the nineteen years of Jordanian occupation; and that is, was and continues to be the destruction of Israel, all of Israel by any and all means necessary. The reality is that Judea and Samaria were Jordanian occupied lands before their liberation by Israel in the Six Day War. That is the dirty little lie the world has swallowed and used to attempt to assist the Arabs in destroying Israel. Each time a nation recognized an Arab state anywhere in Judea and Samaria and especially any part of Jerusalem the possibility that the Arabs, many of whom were placed there by Jordan during their occupation from 1949 through June 1967 were and remain the real “settlers” as they were in many cases forced to resettle so as to create the appearance of Jordanian ownership. In some cases they were moved into the homes the Jews lost when they were forced from their homes, lands and businesses by the Jordanian troops as Jordan refused to permit a single Jew to remain on their lands during the occupation. That is the reality which in far too many cases is driven by anti-Semitism in the form of either anti-Zionism or anti-Israelism; the three are interchangeable as to hold any one implies your support for the other two.

 

France is not forwarding anything new and the PA is continuing with their enforcement of the Khartoum Resolution of 1 September 1967 which included the Three No’s. These Three No’s are, no peace with Israel, no negotiations with Israel, no recognition of Israel. This was broken by Egyptian martyred President Anwar Sadat. He broke the silence and negotiated peace with Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin while United States President Jimmy Carter was presumably facilitating but later it was learned that Carter kept pressing Sadat to demand more of Israel and almost cost the two nations’ peace. President Carter was a virulent anti-Israel politician and thought Egypt should have demanded the Israelis return every inch of land and admits the Arab refugees and their children and children’s children making Israel simply another Arab state. Sadat was more interested in making a real and lasting peace. He attained his vision before the Muslim Brotherhood had succeeded in assassinating this man with a vision. That has been a problem in the Arab and much of the Muslim lands, few leaders have visions of peace and there lies the wall the French will hit. The question is will they learn or simply recognize a state where the sole desire is the destruction of an existing state and after that returning to their respective tribes leaving the land barren again, as it was in the latter half of the Nineteenth Century when the first Zionists returned joining the remnants of the Jewish Israelite civilization still residing in Jerusalem, Hevron, Shechem and throughout the Galilee, Judea, Samaria and even the Negev Desert. There is another reality; the land was mostly empty until the Jewish Zionists constructed the waterworks irrigation systems. After much of that work had been accomplished, the Arabs arrived for the better economy and that is their reason for remaining. Should the world end their payments to these terror masters, they would leave never to be seen again. The few who would remain would be those willing to work and make something with their lives and with those Israel will be capable of negotiating a lasting peace. Think about that France, if you can see past your hatreds and anti-Semitism.
