The Unvarnished Truth About the Palestinian Nation and the Six-Day War

Fifty-one years ago on June 8, 1967, the Six-Day War was half way towards its definitive results with every Arab force in full retreat. That includes all of the belligerents. We wish to discuss the realities with timelines, lists, maps, cartoons and our commentary. The build-up to the Six-Day War reaches back almost four weeks where concrete acts were being taken. The upgraded hostility in the propaganda across many Arab states and particularly in Egypt, specifically with speeches given by Gamal Abdel Nasser built up from months earlier. We have a diagram which provides a timeline up through the Israeli Security Cabinet voting to respond to the numerous threats by striking the Egyptian Air Force the ensuing morning. Many people refer to this specific strike as proof that Israel started the Six Day War ignoring the numerous casus belli which included the bellicose threats, massing of troops on two borders (Egypt and Syria), recognizance flights of the Dimona Nuclear Reactor and the closing of the Straights of Tiran to Israeli shipping which had been set as equivalent to a declaration of war in the agreements from the 1956 Suez Canal crisis. Israel had more than sufficient cases for threats all along her borders and had been overflown with military aircraft deep into the center of the nation. The signs that an attack was imminent were multiplying by the day, thus Israel attacked in response to an imminent and overt threat of attack thus having legal cover making her attack to be legal under the 1949 Geneva Convention and its coverage of preemption when attack has become inevitable, obvious and imminent. Below is the chart of the acts leading up to and including that fateful vote which started the Six-Day War.

 

Build-up to the Six-Day War

 

The next item which is often misrepresented is the actual belligerents. This is where things get a bit peculiar as there are three sets of belligerents. One belligerent involved in the fighting is obviously Israel and another set are the nations Israel fought directly on Israeli or Arab soil which includes Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Iraq and Lebanon. The often ignored set are those who provided some assistance without ever directly engaging troops in the actual ground fighting, and these include Algeria, Kuwait, Libya, Morocco, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Tunisia and the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) which is placed as only being a supporting force as it represents no nation and came under no actual command and actually only provided assistance by attempts at destroying the regions as they surrendered ground in the retreat without engaging the Israeli Defense Force (IDF). The chart is below.

 

Belligerents

 

The biggest misinformation portrayed as one of the victims of the Six-Day War is the imaginary entity of Palestine. There was no nation called Palestine engaged in the Six-Day War. Truth be told, there has never been a nation called Palestine and that name only has referred to the area which was the Roman Province of Syria Palaestina, which was the Roman renaming of the province of Judea after the Bar Kokhba Revolt, the third Jewish uprising against Rome, in an attempt to name it after the Jews most preeminent of enemies, the Philistines. The Philistines migrated and after their final defeat in the Middle East against King Solomon, they relocated to their farthest colony, Carthage. The Carthaginians, renamed from Philistines by Roman historians, fought three wars with the Romans known to any decent history major as the Punic Wars of which there were three. After the Third Punic War the Romans sacked Carthage, salted the earth around Carthage and, just as they had done with the Jews after their third uprising, dispersed the remaining Carthaginians throughout the Roman Empire to the far fringes and some even sent beyond Rome’s borders in order to assure that they would never rise again. This dispersion was the death knell for the Carthaginians and removed any chance for a return of the Philistines as well. So, there were no Philistines or any nation of Philistine or Palestine or Falestine, as the Arabs pronounce Palestine. Palestine has only ever been a region which included what is today Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Israel and possibly reaching into Iraq when the Romans named the area Syria Palaestina, and under Britain Palestine was simply what would become Jordan and Israel. This was what is known as the British Mandate of Palestine which is shown below with the resulting agreed upon division presumably backed by the League of Nations, the United Nations and the British Crown.

That brings us to the big question, if there was no country named Palestine, then what in the name of all that is holy did the map look like. We have been told that Israel defeated Palestine and had attacked Palestine, not Egypt or Jordan; and, of course, Syria, as Israel stole the Golan Heights. First let’s simply decode what the map appeared as and why. The area which is today Hamastan, formerly Gaza, was part of Egypt who controlled it and allowed their citizens to use the area freely but never formally annexed the area, and Judea and Samaria had been annexed by Jordan who gave everybody within that area Jordanian citizenship and renamed the area the West Bank so it would not sound so “Jewish” and that was the story. Egypt retained Gaza after the 1948 War to Annihilate the Jewish State, also known as the Israeli War of Independence so as not to refer honestly to who started it and what their intent had been. Jordan retained the areas of Judea and Samaria from the 1948 War to Annihilate the Jewish State. The Six Day War could just as easily be called the Second Attempt to Annihilate the Jewish State in 1967, but again we try not to run salt in the wounds of their failure. But they use these failures by naming them with the 1948 War to Annihilate the Jewish State referred to as the “Nakba” with the Second Attempt to Annihilate the Jewish State in 1967 referred to as the “Naksa” (“Day of Setback”), as they love to have original sounding names. Below is the actual map of June 4, 1967 on the eve of the Six Day War immediately before the morning in which the hostilities blew up.

Now all we need are maps showing the build-up of the Arab forces and the attack routes taken by the IDF which allowed Israel to take back Gaza, Judea, Samaria and to also conquer the areas of the Golan Heights and the Sinai Peninsula.

The battles for taking Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria fighting Jordan were basically initially dictated by the Jordanian assault the second day of the war after Israel pleaded for them not to engage and attempting to inform them that both Egypt and Syria were losing and that Lebanon had simply held their border and had not attacked but the Jordanian King believed the glowing reports coming out of Damascus and Cairo that they were advancing on Tel Aviv and the Jews had thrown down their weapons and run away. Jordan quickly found out that the Jews were not throwing down their weapons and were definitely not running away from a fight. When Jordan attacked, Israel diverted a division which was just setting out to relieve troops in the Sinai Peninsula and much like Patton when he relieved Bastogne, these troops simply made a left face and proceeded to make their new movement for engaging in a new direction. The Golan Heights were also a straight force on force fight with the Syrians initially holding the high ground. Their positions were camouflaged and presumably well hidden except for one small problem; the Israelis had an officer, Eliyahu Ben-Shaul Cohen (Hebrew: אֱלִיָּהוּ בֵּן שָׁאוּל כֹּהֵן‬‎, Arabic: إيلي كوهين‎‎) in the Syrian Army becoming the Chief Adviser to the Minister of Defense. Once, while visiting the positions of the Syrian military in the Golan Heights, Cohen feigned sympathy for the soldiers exposed to the sun suggesting that trees could be planted at every position to provide the soldiers with shade from the summer sun. Unbelievably, this is exactly what the Syrian military ordered and in the 1967, Six-Day War the Israelis targeted these very same trees making the conquest of the Golan Heights far less costly. Sometimes the truth is far more fantastic than anything one can invent.

 

The results of the Six Day War are well known but a few items have been muddled into disinformation. The United Nations did not order Israel to return all of the lands gained but only to return land. They did not specify further other than to posit that Israel should have secure borders which were recognized and defensible. Most leaders, politicians, Ambassadors to the United Nations and even the United States State Department believed that this intended for Israel to retain a small distance on the Syrian side of the downslope beyond the ridgeline of the Golan Heights and all of Judea and Samaria making the Jordan River as the eastern border for Israel. Many believed that Israel would have been justified in retaining half of the Sinai Peninsula and using the mountainous central region as the new Israeli border with Egypt thus restraining any attack routes that would be available to Egypt if there were ever a future confrontation. Israel returned the Sinai and Egypt conceded all of Gaza which Israel then ceded to the Palestinian Authority in August of 2005, and who lost it in a bloodied coup to Hamas in June of 2007 which then forced Israel to engage in a blockade to prevent the arming of the Hamas terror regime with heavy weapons. That blockade has prevented much from entering Gaza but they still have received sufficient military technologies from Iran to now threaten almost all of Israel with their rockets and missiles with relatively accurate targeting ability and some very destructive payloads, sufficient to topple almost any skyscraper in Tel Aviv with a direct hit, as displayed in the following image below.

Israel has annexed the Golan Heights and signed a ceasefire with Syria signed on May 31, 1974. Despite this, attacks have originated out of Syria launched either by Hezballah, the IRGC or the Iranian Quds Force. All three of these agencies work either under direct order of the Iranian regime and the Mullahs or indirectly in the case of Hezballah who can initiate attacks on their own volition should something present itself but largely they operate under the orders from Tehran. These attacks are sufficient to prove that Israel can never return or give away the Golan Heights and must retain their military presence on the ridgeline. This brings us to the final and most pressing difficulty Israel faces currently, and it has been internationalized just as Mahmoud Abbas intended. That is the problem of who will own what parts of the areas of Judea and Samaria which Mahmoud Abbas and Arab propaganda has defined as the nation of Palestine that Israel invaded and destroyed in the Six-Day War. The new narrative is that Israel invaded Palestine in June of 1967, and responding to that Egypt, Syria and the rest all came to the aid of Palestine and Israel then stole land from the rest of them in a stunning and unbelievable defeat, an impossibility as they were mighty and Israel is Jewish. This was the message they portrayed in their media with cartoons during the Six-Day War (see images below). If you remember the map, we requested you check showing the map as it was the eve before the Six-Day War, there was nothing even called Palestine for Israel to attack. Check again if you are in doubt. Both that map and the one which depicted the massings of troops on the Israeli border show the countries as they were and the only nations bordering Israel were Egypt in the south, Lebanon in the north, Syria in the Golan Heights, Jordan along the east and Saudi Arabia at the southern most tip sharing the border with Jordan and Israel (perhaps a couple of millimeters).

The concept of Palestine and a Palestinian People was cooked up in Moscow with the KGB working to find a means of inserting their operatives and KGB trained agents of Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas into the Middle East to destroy Israel and defeat the United States ally. It really is that simple. The KGB with its two little friends in tow met with the Arab League who allowed this with a fair amount of trepidation and many reservations. This was in the summer of 1964 and the Arab World still had visions of their great coming victory when they erased the embarrassment from 1948 when the impossible happened, the Jews won. After the Six-Day War of June 1967, and its sequel, the Yom Kippur War of October 1973, the concept of an Arab state named Palestine which Israel attacked and the Arabs responded in 1967 and again in 1973 in order to salvage and restore their Palestinian Arab state and using what was then thousands and now millions of refugees to inundate and destroy Israel became more and more appealing. The concept was as simple as it was brilliant. Before September 1964 when Palestine or Palestinian was used, it referred to Israel and the Jews respectively. The Arabs were called Arabs or Syrian or Egyptians and wherever else they originated. But as soon as the KGB propaganda machine got going, the entire history of the Middle East was reinterpreted. Now Palestine meant the Arab state which existed before Israel was imposed as a colony of the British to destroy the Arab nation of Palestine. Palestinian throughout history now meant Arabs. There was no problem that the Palestinian Brigades who fought with the British in the two World Wars was comprised of virtually all Jewish fighters or that the Palestinian Post became the Jerusalem Post, an Israeli Jewish paper, or that the Palestinian Symphony Orchestra became the Israeli Symphony Orchestra, or any of a million other references, all history was to be reinterpreted and the KGB Ministry of Information (Orwellian reference) rewrote all the history books, edited all the films, reframed all maps and presto-chango the Jews were written out of Middle Eastern history. Moses was now a Muslim, Kings David and Solomon were now Muslims (we suspect Goliath might have become a Jew), Samson was a Muslim (Delilah probably now a Jewess), Joshua, Daniel, Ezekiel and the rest of the prophets, judges and Kings were now all Muslims. Ancient Israel and Judea were renamed Palestine and who can guess how far they intended to go. The simple end result was that all of Israel was on land belonging to Palestine and the Palestinians and the Jews were now interlopers. This is what they are still selling and much of the world had bought into hook, line and sinker. The demand is a return to the pre-Six-Day War lines, the Green Line. We can show you the reason for this demand with a simple picture, the top is the day before returning to those lines and the bottom the morning after, the rest is self-explanatory.

That should make it obvious, especially after the recent over one-hundred rockets fired from Gaza onto the relatively sparsely populated region of southern Israel and they still struck at least one home and a kindergarten. What they would strike shooting from the Judean Hills is frightening, even if you do not reside in Tel Aviv. They would have a relatively similar viewpoint for striking Haifa, Netanya, Petah Tikva, Hadera, Jaffa, Bene Barak, Ramat Gan, Lod, Rehovot, Ra’anana as well as Ben Gurion Airport and countless other communities in and around the Tel Aviv metro area. The one truth which makes almost any Zionist crazy is that the world promised that after Jordan, then called Transjordan, was cut from the British Mandate as a home for the Arab population using the Jordan River as the boundary and granting the Arab state seventy-eight percent of the Mandate lands, the world promised that would be the final division and that the Jewish State would be built in the remaining twenty-two percent, allow us to repeat, the remaining twenty-two percent, and the Jordan River would be the eastern border. This is all we honestly ask the world to do, keep their promise. Israel would probably be glad to offer any Arab desiring to leave and relocate elsewhere a monetary incentive to assist with relocating their lives on top of paying them a generous amount for their properties. Those steeped in terrorism and attempting to destroy the Jews, well, they had best just leave should the world ever make good on their words. Why Israel did not simply wipe Gaza clean after the latest rocket barrage is unknown. Any other nation in the world after suffering through the wars with Gaza, the terror tunnels from Gaza, the recent and continuing rioting from Gaza, their now allying with Iran to destroy Israel and murder every Jew on the planet whenever they explode out from Gaza and the incessant rocket threat from Gaza. Recheck the map about the rocket and missile threat from Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza and then add that Hezballah has missiles which can strike Cairo and Saudi Arabia as well as all of Israel in numbers approaching or surpassing one-hundred-fifty-thousand, allow us to repeat that number, sitting just north of Israel in southern Lebanon and now eastern Lebanon in the Bekaa Valley and across the border in south western Syria Hezballah has one-hundred-fifty-thousand plus rockets and missiles. These are existential threats to the existence of Israel and why these threats have not been removed after the wars, terrorism, threats and everything with Iran is beyond reason. And the world blames Israel for living under such threats and claims that the threats against Israel are of no concern or consequence and why are we so worried; we should just give the Arabs what they demand and they will leave us alone. The world knows full well what they demand is us, all of us, dead, and the world is mostly fine with that. Think what your country would do if first you were as small as New Jersey (for the Americans), Albania (for Europeans), or twice the size of Yorkshire (for our friends in Britain), and second your neighboring areas were armed as are ours and desired everyone in your area dead, all eight and a half million of you, or at least the six and a half million who have a certain item in common, religion, hair color or any arbiter. We are willing to bet that should you posses the power, they would be gone at the first sign of belligerence. The world demands we be more sensitive and gentle with our potential murderers.

Is Israeli Governance Really so Far Right?

 

We hear from articles and network news commentators how the Israeli government is the most right wing government in Israeli history. This interpretation may be quite wrong for all too many reasons. The government initially was presented with sixty-one seat majority with fifty-nine in the opposition. The initial parties were Likud (30 seats), Kulanu (10 seats), HaBayit HaYehudi (8 seats), Shas (7 seats) and Agudat Israel (6 seats) and this coalition was further strengthened ever so slightly with the addition of Yisrael Beiteinu (5 seats) to the coalition. The discussions about this being a far right government often lists HaBayit HaYehudi (Jewish Home) as being far right as they represent religious Zionists and Zionism has been placed as part of the far right despite its origins having been closely tied to socialism and the Kibbutz model. In Israeli recent history the Labor Party attempted to reinvigorate its Zionist roots, from which they had drifted quite far, but still named their coalition with Tzipi Livni as the Zionist Union. Nobody presenting news in Israel would ever refer to Zionist Union as being far right, but HaBayit HaYehudi is often criticized for their staunch Zionist principles and then further critiqued for being religious. What is really interesting is when election time comes around, the media then refers to HaBayit HaYehudi as being well to the left of Likud as a means of hindering their position as a presentable choice for religious Zionists hoping to have the religious Zionist vote for the more minor parties who have very similar positions as HaBayit HaYehudi. This is done in the hope that some, or many or all, of the minor parties do not cross the threshold and those votes are not represented in the government and HaBayit HaYehudi will have garnered fewer seats. This might permit a left wing government to take control in Israel, something which came close to being reality in the last elections where had HaBayit HaYehudi not thrown support to Likud sacrificing seats so Likud would have the mandate to form the government, which worked with great efficiency, Yair Lapid and his Yesh Atid Party might have had the mandate. Yair Lapid is often described as being a right-centrist to the right of Bibi Netanyahu, more Zionist than Bibi Netanyahu, more humanistic than Bibi Netanyahu, stronger support of military than Bibi Netanyahu and simply more popular than Bibi Netanyahu so additionally if only the Israeli people were more intelligent and informed, Bibi Netanyahu would lose to Yair Lapid and the world would find Shangri-La entering the Age of Aquarius and be perfected. This perfect world includes the formation of the Arab entity of Palestine left to its own devices under the rule of Mahmoud Abbas for as long as he can remain breathing. Shortly after the IDF and the Israeli towns and cities have been evacuated there will be a coup just like in Gaza with one major difference, Mahmoud Abbas and everyone else who Hamas has no need of in their idea of Palestine will be hanged or put before a wall and shot. This will lead to Iran arming Hamas with thousands of rockets and artillery with which to destroy central Israel including Tel Aviv and its surrounding cities and suburbs. This will leave three-quarters of Israeli economic structures, residential housing, energy production and everything else including Israel’s main international airport, Ben Gurion International Airport, and also striking Jerusalem and cutting it off from the remainder of Israel. Leftists claim that this time it will work as they predict and be nothing like Gaza. Unfortunately, they have not explained how this miracle will come to fruition. Israelis are supposed to take this reality on faith and faith alone. Still, let us look at this presumed overtly right wing government and the arguments as to why this is far from reality.

 

Shangri-La and the World in the Age of Aquarius

Shangri-La and the World in the Age of Aquarius

 

Let us define what would have occurred if the current government in Israel really were a radical, far right wing government. When President Trump took office there would have been some events which would have occurred already. First is that Area C of Judea and Samaria would have been annexed and any Palestinian Authority (PA) leadership residing within these areas would have been removed as would any families who have any connection with terrorism. Mahmoud Abbas would have been called to Jerusalem for a meeting with the Prime Minister, in the current government that is Bibi Netanyahu, where he would be instructed to present what he would consider an acceptable peace which he believes is acceptable to both his people and to the Israeli government. Abbas would have been given two weeks to present his plan. If his plan was in any means acceptable, then Israel would work with him with a set number of weeks to reach an agreement or the entire leadership of the PA, PLO and Fatah would be deported once and for all. The remainder of the Arabs who have links to terrorism would join the rest of the leadership in being expelled. After this the remainder of the Arabs would be permitted to choose whether they wish to remain or have their properties bought at high value and a relocation bonus while being banned from ever returning even for a visit. Those who choose to remain would take on the identity of alien resident who might be permitted to vote in local elections depending on numerous conditions but would not have the right to vote in national elections. As far as requirements placed upon these Arabs would be if they showed any sign of participating or aiding terrorism, they will be expelled receiving no financial aid or remuneration for their properties. As far as being permitted a path to citizenship, this would be denied for the foreseeable future. The inference would be that such was not something that Israel was about to consider granting such a privilege. This would be followed by the annexation of all the lands west of the Jordan River, the exact lands which the San Remo Conference had denoted to make up the Jewish State in its final rendition. Contrary to European, United Nations, Arab League and much of the world’s opinions, International Law depicts the Jordan River as the eastern border for the Jewish State of Israel.

 

We should expect the United Nations General Assembly along with the European Union and many others jumping onboard to take these actions before the International Court of Justice (ICJ), much as has happened before and should serve as a warning. If one does not need believe us, but one might feel inclined to take the wording of a decision made by the Third Chamber of the Court of Appeal of Versailles in a case brought by the PA against the French companies Alstom and Veolia for building Jerusalem’s light rail system. Their final decision was also a warning to the PA that Israel has the sole claim to all of Judea and Samaria and that they would do best not to take this into any court of law. The fact this came from the friendliest court system the PA was able to find makes this all the more impressively important. Please take our kind invitation to read for yourself a copy of the Court Ruling. Furthermore, in an earlier case brought before Egyptian Judge, Justice El Araby, and the International Court of Justice (ICJ), who sat in judgement as part of the panel which heard the case where the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) sought an advisory opinion in 2003 from the ICJ on the legality of the security barrier erected by Israel; the Honorable Justice El Araby warned the UNGA and others, including Mahmoud Abbas and the whole of the PA, that filing further ran some risks, as he stated,

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

The warning given by the Egyptian Judge has been the well-known dirty-little secret that everybody has known and done everything in their collective power to ignore or even contravene in order to do whatever is required to destroy the Jewish State. This is the largest part of the new anti-Semitism which has spawned the BDS movement and the entire Palestinian movement. The aim is to force the Jewish State’s destruction and a new Shoah with approaching seven-million Jews being murdered and the remainder placed back in the diaspora. A major part of the world resents the founding of Israel as the Jewish State as the reappearance of the Jewish nation fulfills prophesy. But it is actually worse than that for Catholicism, Islam and most of Christianity who believe in replacement theology. The founding of Christianity during the rule of the Roman Empire and with the Jews being spread to the far corners of their empire and beyond, to all viewers it appeared that the Jewish people were about to disappear from the face of the earth as others facing this same treatment by the Romans had disappeared. Another such people were the Carthaginians, the original Phoenicians, who were dispersed after the three Punic Wars. A simple question, has anybody run into a Carthaginian or a Phoenician of late? We did not think so as they were wiped from history by the Roman Empire. How the Jewish people did not meet a similar fate was due to the central pillar of the Jewish people being different than other civilizations. Most people are identified by their lands and central locations and losing this ends their identity but the Jewish people are centered around the Torah. This is what held the Jews as a people despite the challenges and allowed them to remain separated from other people, something for which the Jews paid a high price. The benefit is it allowed the Jewish people to reestablish their homelands and defined exactly where that homeland was and is to be located. What the Jewish people are soon to be required to accomplish will be the reconstituting of their homelands by bringing the remainder of world Jewry home and making Israel the actual home of the entirety of the Jewish people. This will result in some sad realities when, just as when the Jewish people returned from Egypt or returned from their exile in Babylon, a mere twenty-percent of the Jews returned to Israel and those who made their future outside of Israel were eventually assimilated and lost to their families and from the body of the Jewish people. There was another loss of a great number of Jews, likely a lower percentage than Egypt and Babylon, were lost to the tribes as they found themselves completely detached. The sadness will be those families who will be torn asunder with those who remain in Canada, the United States, Europe and elsewhere around the globe soon becoming assimilated and lost to the Jewish people and to their families who will feel the pain for a number of generations living in the truly Promised Land.

 

Jewish People Returning from Exile

Jewish People Returning from Exile

 

Somehow, we doubt that the largest Jewish element in the Diaspora are in the United States, we seriously doubt they will resemble this picture in any way. Those who return from the United States will be flying El Al Airlines while much of their possessions will be traveling DHL or other first-class and efficiently fast delivery as they will not desire being without their personal items. The unfortunate truth is that the vast majority of the Jewish population in the United States who are outside the Traditional Orthodox Community are not going to be returning to Israel unless forced to do so. Far too many will deny their Jewishness in order to avoid having to leave the United States as they perceive the United States as their Promised Lands. What it would take for the majority of the assimilated Jews to return to Israel, the home of their forefathers, would be deportation from the United States where they would be placed on wide-body aircraft with as many seats as possible installed, they would be divorced from their homes, money, furniture, vehicles and other wealth and be deported being driven out, dispossessed and exiled with their passport and citizenship invalidated. They would not be permitted to return even to vacation at Disney World. Eventually, the Jews will be forced to return to their homeland by the very nations who have at times attempted to destroy that very homeland. The one nation we always hear will never expulse their Jews is the United States. Believe it or not, anti-Semitism is growing in the United States and much of the new anti-Semitism emanates from the far left. There are many Jews in these groups and they are in denial that such can be a possibility. The problem is they have blinders on and are refusing to view things even should they happen right before their eyes. These are the Jews who will remain far longer than they are welcome but will be suffered for as long as they serve their purpose. What is that purpose? It is to allow the anti-Semites to claim they love Jews as they have Jews within their group. Talk about useful idiots, but every revolution has them. These unfortunates will learn what happens to useful idiots once they are no longer useful, and if they are fortunate, that future will not include a wall and a line of people with machine-guns but an old steamship which they will be overcrowded and miserable for the six-month cruise to Israel.

The Lie of Gaza Relief

 

There was a recent announcement that a plan is in place which will give relief to the people of Gaza as Hamas turns over governing responsibility to the Palestinian Authority (PA). The idea that this will provide any assistance to the financial imbalance in Gaza is preposterous. The other claim is that this will also provide Israel with a measure of added security as Gaza will not be ruled over by Hamas. How in the world simply freeing Hamas from having to provide any social services such as water, electricity, sewage treatment, trash pick-up, road repair, bus service, ambulance service and any other service and instead use all of the funding they receive from Iran, Qatar and Turkey, which exceeds seventy-million per year and is said to be approaching, if not exceeding, one-hundred-million per year, into their terror infrastructure of tunnels, arms, rockets, rocket propelled grenades, smuggling tunnels, bunkers, attack tunnels under the border into Israel as well as the Sinai, and a plethora of other weaponry, will make Israel safer is beyond reason. This development will also pose a threat to the Egyptians as Hamas has reached agreements with the Islamic State to aid their offensive in the Sinai against Egyptian forces and very possibly leading to the Islamic State making the Sinai Peninsula their new base of operations as they are being pressed in Iraq and Syria and needing a new area in which to operate. There is nothing in this arrangement which will assist Israel, Egypt or the people of Gaza or those residing in the areas of Judea and Samaria where the PA holds autonomy. But there are things this is going to permit and reasons and concepts where this fraudulent perception will be sold.

 

The first claim which will be attempted to be passed off will be that now the areas, Gaza and the PA autonomous regions of Judea and Samaria are now completely under the control and rule of the PA. The PA will be the titular rule in Gaza but will still be utilizing Hamas security forces, Hamas police, and all the weapons will be in the hands of Hamas fighting forces. The PA will only be paying the electric bill and presumably the salaries of the public employees, the vast majority of which are Hamas personnel so Hamas will have additional savings by not having to pay their own people and that money will buy additional rockets. The PA will rule in name only but will try to sell this as now that Hamas is not formally in name ruling Gaza and the PA has formally (in name only) taken over, now the world can realize the two state solution and recognize the new Arab state of the PA. There will be new calls to end the Israeli occupation of the lands which legally belong to Israel but that the Arabs claim are theirs. Of course, Arab claims supercede Israeli rightful ownership by treaties recognized and formalized by the United Nations Charter in Article 80. The initial screeching already started back on September 17, 2017 in the United Nations Human Rights Council where they held a debate on the subject of, “Human rights situation in Palestine” which we provide a series of outtakes and pertinent quotes below including one Palestinian, as Mahmoud Abbas claims, once a Palestinian, forever a Palestinian, who told his story of true hardships. Still, we are sure that the delegates will take the entirety and full impact of this honest assessment to heart before returning to their normal debate condemning Israel.

 

 

Be assured that this entire announcement is nothing more than a ploy to try and gin up some activity in order to try and bring the world’s complete and sole attention to the Palestinian demands and their need for the world to rush and save them. Never mind that the average Palestinian in the areas ruled by the PA despite living in hardship still have a higher standard of living than the average Arab living almost anywhere other than a select few oil enriched nations throughout the Arab world. Many live very opulent lives, especially those who are well connected to the levers of power of the PA, Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

Just like it is not widely explained that the PA also pays the families of terrorists who are in prison or have been killed while murdering Israelis an average of one-thousand dollars for each Israeli they murdered. There have been terrorists who have admitted to their arresting officers that they committed their attacks to kill soldiers, settlers, guards, any Israelis and then hoped to die in the attack so their children or family would receive payments from the PA government. An example is below where Khaled Rajoub repeatedly and proudly stated that he committed his action in order to be shot dead and have his children live a happy life receiving the reward payment from the PA government.

Interrogator: “Why did you decide to kill soldiers, and not someone else?”
Khaled Rajoub: “The best is to kill soldiers. That way they have guns and they’ll shoot me and kill me. But if I’m not able to kill soldiers, I’ll try settlers, guards – in other words any Israeli target – the important thing is that I will die and they will kill me, so that my children will receive a [PA] allowance and live happily.”
Interrogator: “What did you want to achieve by killing soldiers or settlers, or any Israeli target?”
Khaled Rajoub: “So they’d shoot me and I’d die, and my children would receive an allowance.”
Interrogator: “Are you still determined to do that?”
Khaled Rajoub: “Of course, 100%. I’m telling you – if you’ll set me free, I’ll do it again as soon as possible. I’ll bring another car, and I’ll run over [soldiers] at the first military post I see. I’ll kill as many as possible, and they’ll shoot me, and I’ll die. There is no other solution.” […]
Interrogator: “Do you want to add anything?”
Khaled Rajoub: “… I say to you again – I don’t regret what I did, and if I have the opportunity, I’ll do it again, and I’ll kill soldiers or any Israeli I come across.”

What could we possibly add to this? Well, we could add the longer rest of Khaled Rajoub interrogation which can be read at the link provided above. He really intends to commit terror act after terror act to kill as many Israelis as he can until he is killed just so his children will live the good life being paid for his murders. It starts out with a sad story about his life where he tells the interrogator, “I am a man with a family of seven, including me and my wife. I don’t work, and I’ve accumulated large debts, and am unable to pay them off. I reached a point where, if my son wants a shekel, I have nothing to give him. Therefore, I decided to die – it didn’t matter how – by hanging – any way, to die. I thought about it and said to myself that if I die by hanging, or any other way, I won’t get anything out of it, so I decided to do something serious, such as committing murder, something in which I will both kill and die, and then my family will get money.” This was a man with a plan, a sordid and terribly vicious plan and he was determined to carry it out. He had fortunately failed in this attempt and stressed repeatedly that the main two goals, and he was driven to meet both goals, were to kill Israelis and then get killed himself, to die, so his family would have money. The part of his wanting to die is irrelevant, as he does not have to die for the family to get paid, that was just a bonus part in his plan. Our question is what do the Israelis do with this poor soul? Release him and he will just try again and probably murder some people and maybe even get himself dead. But his crime would not likely get him a life sentence, which makes sense, until you realize what he will do after being released, and with a better education from his fellow prison mates, thus he would be more likely to succeed. And if the Israelis had him committed to a hospital where he might receive mental health care, he would do what was needed to be released and then we know what would follow. This is a sad case but not a singular instance. These are some of the realities which the world ignores as they simply continue with the oldest lie told, the Jews are at fault and the Jews deserve whatever ill comes their way and the world will pay to make sure that happens. There are a few people making efforts to change this story and we wish them good fortune in those efforts.
