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.

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.

These are not the pictures one normally is exposed to from the “disputed territories” where everybody is said to be suffering miserably. 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.”

(Israeli Police interrogation of terrorist Khaled Rajoub, Feb. 2, 2014)

 

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.

What Erudite Opposition to the Taylor Force Act Tells Us

 

An editorial argument in Foreign Policy titled The Smart Way to End ‘Pay to Slay’ written jointly by David Makovsky, Dennis Ross and Lia Weiner could not have been more off the point had they tried. They did correctly note that the aid the United States earmarks for the Palestinian Authority (PA) is intended (our denotations) to be, “divided into three baskets. The first basket, consisting of roughly $70 million, goes to electricity costs in the West Bank and medical treatment. Approximately $25 million of this basket serves to reimburse hospitals for medical care of Palestinians in East Jerusalem.” Also, “The remaining $45 million of this basket is paid directly to Israeli electricity companies to settle the PA’s electricity debts for services to PA buildings and debts accrued by Palestinians.”

They then go off the rails by claiming should this money be cut, then the PA would be required to take monies from other uses to pay these debts. The reason these funds are paid directly to the necessary recipients is because the PA never paid these debts and had this practice continued a number of Israeli hospitals would have financially collapsed partially due to providing the free treatments of the PA and Gaza patients and the Israeli electricity company was intending to cut off all service due to overdue, by numerous years, payments which they were no longer going to stick the payments due to their Israeli customers.

 

Their next notation is, “The second basket of $85 million consists of U.S. aid that is tangentially related to the PA. Most of these projects pertain to roads, water desalination, education, and good governance.” This is a bigger joke than the shovel ready road, bridge, highway and infrastructure repair jobs that President Barack Obama promised the American people in his first term. These vital infrastructures are often repaired due to necessity by Israel and the waste and trash treatment by the PA is intentionally done in the most ecologically damaging manner possible. They regularly pollute ground water and then blame Israel for the tainting of wells their own people are dependent upon, as they get no direct water from the PA due to disrepair or simply not being attached to the water supply. Israel attempted to assist but when workers, including Arab Israelis, were shot upon, this work ceased unless performed under IDF guards. The PA then protested about the invasion of their areas by the IDF to the United Nations and Israel was coerced in removing the protection and the workers. We will leave it to your imagination what the next accusation was against Israel about not completing promised repairs.

 

The final basket is more tragedy than aid as they tell it as such, “A third basket, made up of the remaining $106 million, goes directly to projects that are completely independent of the PA. These include various educational initiatives and private sector development. One of the notable projects in this basket is headed by the U.S.-based Mercy Corps, which aims to improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of Gazans by improving economic growth, education, and health in the Gaza Strip.” Any private sector development goes over 75% to Mahmoud Abbas’s three sons and their numerous construction and other infrastructure companies. Further, there are kickbacks to Abbas and his cronies for every dollar spent thus often doubling or tripling the cost of any project and the enrichment of the PA and Fatah hierarchy. But these are their minor cost arguments.

 

The rest of their argument is that any cutting of United States aid would adversely affect the poor Palestinian Arab people. They argue that these are a people who have no control over their leadership despite the fact that they overwhelmingly elected them in 2006 and Abbas in 2005. Further, if new elections were to be held to find a successor to Mahmoud Abbas, the two leading candidates are Fatah’s Marwan Barghouti, the Fatah leader who is currently serving five life sentences plus additional twenty years in Israel for a myriad of lethal acts of terror and Ismail Haniyeh who is the former leader of Hamas in Gaza. Further, a minimum of seventy percent would cast their votes for the two leading parties in the Parliament, Hamas and Fatah (in that order) with another approximately ten percent voting for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a potentially even more radical terrorist group. Making their argument that the people are victims and not part of the problem is further undermined by a July 2017 polling by the Palestinian Center of Policy and Survey Research headed by Dr. Khalil Shikaki, the well-respected and known worldwide Palestinian pollster, where, “91% are opposed to the suspension of PA payments to Palestinian security prisoners (a euphemism for convicted terrorist) in Israeli jails; only 7% support such measure.”

 

Perhaps we should just cut to the chase and take everything down to the ground and forget high principles and grand eloquence. The Palestinian-Israeli conflict is in all actuality and honesty the substitution by the Arab Islamic world for the Arab-Israeli conflict done in order to make Israel appear to have the power and numerical advantages instead of Israel as David and the Arab world as Goliath. Their propaganda ploy had worked to the best of their hoped intentions with Europe and the left worldwide lining up behind the poor, downtrodden, unfortunate Arab victims and pulling all sympathy away from Israel. Now the Arab world can berate Israel and feel good about themselves and read in the Western media how they are so feeling and taking the side of the poor, downtrodden, unfortunate Palestinian Arab victims instead of reading how six Arab nations’ armies crossed the Israeli borders outnumbering Israel a hundred planes to one and five thousand men to one and five hundred tanks to one and then read a week later how Israel miraculously survived and even defeated these combined forces. The reality is those same six Arab nations are simply biding their time waiting for the perfect moment to pounce across the Israel borders after using the Palestinian Arab areas as staging zones claiming to have entered these zones to protect innocent victims of Israeli hegemony. There is the reality as simply as we can state the truth which nobody desires to say.

 

The Arab-Israeli conflict, and let us stop being rubes for a plain case of Taqiyya and call this what it is, the Arab-Israeli conflict is about two completely opposing worldviews and positions. The Israeli position is and always has been peace. Israel surrendered 78% of the British Mandate to provide the Arabs with a homeland which we today call Jordan whose population is 80% Palestinian Arabs, if that terminology is to have any true meaning. Then when the United Nations voted on November 30, 1947, to further divide the British Mandate resulting in the Arabs gaining another 11% and Israel getting only half of the remainder after Jordan, also 11% with two-thirds of the Israel portion being Negev Desert, Israel agreed while the Arabs rejected starting an Arab-Jew Civil War in the remaining 22% as a preemptory start to the ensuing May 15, 1948, Israel independence marred by those six Arab armies and numerous militias attempting to eradicate the Jewish State at her inception. Israel is said to have won, survived would be more accurate as when the Arabs rejected the General Assembly Resolution 181, that resolution basically ceased to exist leaving the entirety of the 22% of the remaining British Mandate, as promised by the Churchill White Papers, to the Jewish State presumably backed by the British Crown, though you would have had a hard time believing this as many British as well as Nazi officers from World War II advised the Egyptians and Jordanians standing together all but side-by-side. The result was Israel lost Judea and Samaria to Jordan and Gaza to Egypt and both nations flooded these areas with Arab refugees and other Arabs they wished to reward with land or simply displace from lands they held. The Jews in these areas were thrown from their homes and properties and sent to Israel, if they were fortunate.

 

Then there were the Six Day War and the Yom Kippur War which were both initiated by the Arab forces and had numerous armies against Israel, yet Israel managed to prevail in these wars. Israel returned the Sinai Peninsula and Gaza despite Egypt’s illegal occupation of Gaza to Egypt in exchange for peace and offered Judea and Samaria back to Jordan despite Jordan’s illegal occupied for almost twenty years of these areas. Egypt and Jordan resigned their illegally occupied areas but refused to allow their citizens to return from these areas knowing they would cause a demographic nightmare for Israel as well as a security nightmare. The Arab-Israeli conflict comes down to one simple fact, the Arabs refuse to permit Israel to exist. Israel, by her actions, is not attempting to conquer Arab lands, their usual claim. Israel only seeks to retain her 22% of the British Mandate and is willing to permit the Arabs in Gaza to become a nation, Hamasatan or West Iran, choose whatever name they wish, and allow semi autonomy for the Arabs in Judea and Samaria in Areas A and B while Israel retains most of Area C. Israel cannot permit the Arabs to have an independent state along the 1949 Armistice Lines (ala Green Line aka 1967 Lines) as that would place Arab rockets on the crest of the highlands overlooking the central plains of Israel which includes around three-quarters of her population and industrial zones as well as her main international airport. Truth be told, if the world were honest, as they were when creating Pakistan and millions were relocated from one area to the other and vice-versa, they would allow the Arabs to sell their properties in Judea and Samaria and even receive a relocation allowance from Israel and have them relocate to Jordan, Egypt, or whatever Arab nations or other nation willing to house them and end this impasse once and for all. But the world is not honest and as we have stated, they want to have Israel face these crippling problems with the hopes that Israel will fail before the pressures and thus appease the Arabs.

 

Plain English, the Arab-Israeli conflict are two implacable enemies, not prospective peace partners. The Palestinian Arab leadership and the people themselves have stated that the only solution that they will accept is Israel either eradicated or under Arab rule and every Jew dead. That is not something which can be settled over any peace process in all of history. The Arabs, like the Europeans, spent half their time stealing wealth from the Jews or murdering them and the other half living in an uneasy peace with an additional tax, the Jiyza, placed on the Jews as Dhimmis. Now that the Jews have their homelands returned and rule themselves the Arabs no longer can collect the Jiyza, the Jews are no longer Dhimmi but are instead proud and armed, something not permitted Dhimmi, and the Arabs cannot accept that they were defeated because since they left Mecca and Medina their book, the Quran, guaranteed they would rule the entire world, destroy the Jews and never ever lose a war. Europe is about to learn this lesson of how it is to have Arabs living within your society and desiring all of it for themselves and you enslaved or dead. Europe, learn from Israel, lighting candles and listening to the Arabs sweet songs of commiserating over your loss while handing out sweet candies to celebrate in private is not exactly a recipe for survival. Your ancestors understood Arab Muslim desires to conquer their lands and fought back sometimes successfully and others not so much which is why we are having the crazed discussion about Jews and Christians having no claim to Jerusalem. These are both societal struggles and only one can survive within any national boundary. As an object lesson, allow us to close with a little tale about the Camel and the tent, it is an Arab tale told where they are to learn from the camel and to never be that Arab.

 

 


It was a cold winter night. An Arab was resting in his tent when his camel peeped inside and asked, “Master, it’s very cold outside. Please allow me to put my head inside your tent.”
The kind master took pity on the poor animal and agreed to the camel’s request. A little later, the camel asked, “Master, please let me put my neck inside your tent as well.” Once again, the master allowed him to do so.
Next, the camel asked if he could put his forelegs in and again the kind master agreed. Very soon, the camel was completely inside the tent. But the tent was too small for both the master and the camel.
Finally, the camel asked his master to leave the tent so that he could be more comfortable. By now, the master was very angry and turned the camel out in the cold again.
