Dear President Trump, Please Understand These Facts

 

President Trump, please read some history and agreements, which defined the entire creation of Israel. Once you understand the history, then you will understand that Israel has had so much already stolen that to take more would be literally criminal. The first place you should start is with the San Remo Conference. This was the first international conference to discuss further the concepts and promises made by the Balfour Declaration, something we assume; hopefully not wrongly, you already are familiar with forward and backward. Just in case you are not familiar with this document, you can use the link here. At San Remo, the world made their initial commitment. This was followed by the Treaty of Sèvres where further discussions were held and the Mandate System finalized. This was finalized in the League of Nations who gave the British the Mandate over what became Jordan and Israel. Read these and it will confirm the gist of our summary which follows.

 

The British were granted lands in which to establish the Jewish State. They took the liberty of deciding that they were not required to establish the Jewish homelands in all of the territory and instead decided they would make an Arab homeland as well. The British decided to divide the lands evenly by British standards. Their idea of evenly was to divide the lands down the Jordan River and straight south from the Dead Sea. They took the slightly larger part, 78% of the Mandate, and formed Transjordan, which later became simply Jordan, and gifted the lands to the Hashemites whom they owed favor from World War I. They further decided that the Jews were not prepared to have their own state, so the British continued to rule the lands west of the Jordan, the 22% they promised would never be divided further when they took most of the lands to form the Arab state of Jordan. The Arabs rioted often and as long as they targeted the Jews, the British watched on and when they started to approach the British they would fire a single shot and the Arabs would disperse. The British, the ones who promised the lands would never be further divided, did actually try to keep their word as well as prevent the forming of the State of Israel when they voted against United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 (UNGA Res 181), which passed easily laying out dividing the 22% of land left into another Arab state and a Jewish state with the better lands given the Arabs and the Negev Desert making up over 50% of the Jewish State. The Arab League rejected this agreement thus, as one of the legal party, voiding the entirety of UNGA Res 181 and negating the proposed boundaries. This negation returned everything to the conditions before the proposal of UNGA Res 181, meaning the British promise that all the lands west of the Jordan River were designated for the Jewish state. That was the situation legally on the morning of May 15, 1948, or the evening before which was the start of the 5th of Iyyar, 5708. When Israel declared her independence on the evening of 5th of Iyyar, 5708, her borders were exactly what the British had promised in exchange for the theft of 78% of the Mandate to gift the Arabs another nation. That morning began what is euphemistically called the Israeli War of Independence. A more accurate title would have been the Israeli War for Survival. Six Arab armies from the nations of Jordan, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia along with the Arab League Militias led by the Mufti of Jerusalem and World War II Nazi ally Mohammed Amin al-Husseini (محمد أمين الحسيني‎ Arabic) as well as detachments from Algeria, Pakistan, Sudan and Yemen attacked Israel from every border the morning she came into existence. There were additional forces usually simply referred to as irregulars some of which represented the Muslim Brotherhood and components of the Arab League as well as other terror and Islamist organizations and groups. This was how Gaza was occupied by Egypt and Judea and Samaria partially occupied by Jordan, an area they renamed West Bank to remove the Jewish designations and honestly known as the Shomron by Jews and Israel.

 

The Arabs have their state and it is Jordan. These occupied areas were liberated in the defensive wars of 1967 (Six Day War) and 1973 (Yom Kippur War). Israel successfully defended her lands in these conflicts. Since then Israel returned the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt when they made peace. This satisfied the requirement in United Nations Security Resolution 242 (UNSC Res 242) which was adopted unanimously by the UN Security Council on November 22, 1967, in the aftermath of the Six-Day War. It was adopted under Chapter VI of the UN Charter. The requirement was that despite Israel wining a defensive war brought on despite repeated cries for the Arabs to reconsider while the world sat silently waiting for Israel to be destroyed, for Israel to return part of the lands gained, not all of the lands. Israel survived and thrived but, unlike normal nations, was not permitted to retain the spoils of a defensive war in order to prevent further wars. Israel was demanded to return lands, not the lands or all lands, simply lands while establishing for themselves “Secure and Recognized Borders.” Once Israel had returned the Sinai Peninsula, she had satisfied the demand for the return of land. Israel annexation of the Golan Heights was done to establish “Secure and Recognized Borders.” Since the Shomron was initially part of Israel until the illegal occupation by Jordan, there should be no problem, but the world cannot allow Israel to live in peace. Instead, there came the invention of the Arab Palestinians who were established by the PLO, Arafat, the KGB and the Arab League in June of 1964 with the inauguration of the PLO terror group. The plan was to use the history of the Jewish People against Israel by adapting it, with a few flourishes, replacing the Jewish People and Israelites with the pretend Arab Palestinian entity. One prime example of a flourish is the claim they inhabited the land with the Canaanites for nine-thousand years and furthermore, Abbas also claimed that the fictitious “Canaanite-Palestinians” were the creators of the modern-day alphabet six-thousand years ago (watch video below), a thousand years before any modern written language has been recognized by anthropology studies of ancient civilizations. The Shomron is an integral part of Jewish and Israelite history and the heartlands of Israel. This is history and verified by historical records. But the levels of deceit which is beyond those attempting to destroy Israel by any means and no matter the cost to civilization has never been reached, there is no limit to their perfidy and lies.

 

 

There is a simple set of maps that prove what is and is not belonging to Israel. Below is a map of the original Twelve Tribes and the lands they ruled which spanned both sides of the Jordan River. The Promised Lands were those west of the Jordan River but with the assistance of Moses intervening to permit tribes to remain in lands east of the river where they found good grazing lands for their cattle, they were permitted these lands providing they were the point of the spear leading the other tribes into battle to take the Promised Lands, and then they could return to these lands. They built shelters for their families, fences for their cattle and led the other tribes in the taking of the lands and vanquishing completely the Canaanite tribes. The other side depicts the initial lands promised and becoming the land of Israel upon her declaration of independence in red on the right with the extended Davidic-Solomon Empire in yellow, which came after the defeat of the Phoenicians and Philistines by King David and King Solomon. The Hebrew Empire reached from the Euphrates River in what is today northern Syria near the Iraqi border through to the southern edge of the Negev where it meets the Sinai Peninsula and the Egyptian border then, just beyond where it exists today. Israel is not requesting those lands they initially inhabited though the initial British Mandate, which had been intended to give the Jews the lands as, estimated to match their initial lands. Unfortunately, the religiously guided and writers of the Balfour Declaration and San Remo Conference and other related treaties and papers following World War I were not the men it was decided should enact what they dreamed. The people who were tasked with the implementation of the British Mandate were more beholden to the promises the British had lavished upon numerous Arab families during the war and left the crumbs of what was considered worthless land, the prime real estate east of the Jordan River had been reserved for their Arab friends the Hashemites, so leaving the rock strewn hills, swampy lowlands and southern desert lands to the Jews, areas that had been tried and refused to provide succor to those who resided thereupon, allowing for a few subsistence farmers and a shepherd or two per hundred miles with the slimmest of herds to survive along with a paltry number of residents to remain and live in Jerusalem, Hevron, Shechem, Tiberius, Caesarea and Akko; all but Akko consisted of predominantly Jewish and Christian residents.

 

Left side map depicts the division of the Promised Land amongst the tribes and right side map compares the modern promised land from the Jordan west to the Mediterranean Sea compared to the maximum of area during King David’s and King Solomon’s reigns.

 

The demands of the world have been more than satisfied. The map below is what, as things now stand, should be the final and definitive map of the modern state of Israel. This map includes the Golan Heights, the lands west of the Jordan River; border Lebanon along the internationally recognized Blue Line as confirmed by the United Nations, borders Egypt along their agreed upon and recognized border between the Sinai Peninsula and the Negev Desert, and the Mediterranean Sea to the west. It should be noticed that Gaza is not included as part of Israel though, according to the agreements from after World War I, these lands were included within Israel. The reason for this is Israel released all claims to Gaza turning it over to the rule of the Palestinian Authority in August of 2005 and by early September the final withdrawal of the last IDF forces was complete. Israel no longer controls, occupies or otherwise has any claim having surrendered Gaza to the Palestinian Authority. Subsequently, the Palestinian Authority lost their rule and control over Gaza to Hamas in a bloody coup in 2007. Since then Gaza has been ruled by Hamas with Israel only invading when it became necessary to respond to excessive assaults and rocket fire by Hamas targeting Israeli civilians. These attacks were initially limited to the southernmost residents in Israel but over time and with assistance from Iran, the ranges of these projectiles has greatly increased and will soon be capable of threatening all of Israel. The last war with Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the terrorist masters of Gaza, they targeted the suburbs of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, the next war it may well be Haifa. Israel cannot surrender any further lands as to do so would be suicide. That is the truth. If there is to be a deal, it should be to permit those Arabs desiring to relocate to do so without facing death threats from the Palestinian Authority or from Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Israel would offer top price for their properties and possibly a bonus might be offered. The same offer should be given to the Arabs residing within Israel as well and in Gaza. This would reduce the overcrowding that always appears to explain why Hamas must fire their rockets from School tops and the roofs of clinics and apartment houses. These would be the closest Israel can expect and could be made into “Secure and Recognized Borders.” Israel did surrender the Sinai Peninsula and Gaza, no more can or should be asked of her. The United Nations demanded Israel surrender lands, not all the lands or even the lands, and Israel has met this standard and now need to be left to her own safe boundaries.

President Trump, you claim not to be a politician and to be the one to bring a new age to Washington. Your claim is to drain the swamp and follow your own path ignoring the ‘Deep State’ as part of your cleaning of the mess the United States faces. As you may have already seen, the State Department is probably the most infected of your departments when it comes to people with their own policies and the desire to implement them whether the President agrees with them or not. The problems you had with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson were not completely of his making, though he was the perfect fit for the State Department. Allow us to give you a little history on the State Department. The State Department advised President George Washington, President John Adams and President Thomas Jefferson to pay the tribute to the Barbary Pirates. Eventually, President Jefferson, a noninterventionist if ever there was one, to intervene and fight the Barbary Pirates instead of paying the ever-increasing tribute. The State Department backed the Soviets and Communism while now they back the Arabs, as they are Arabists, just like Rex Tillerson is. You have already shown more backbone than other Presidents, as you kept your promise to recognize the true and eternal capital of Israel, Jerusalem. This was the act of a businessman, keeping his word, and not the act of a politician, whose words are usually worthless when they become uncomfortable or difficult. Do not suddenly become a politician, though becoming another member of the swamp would be the easiest path for you, stand for what you know is correct from what you learned back in Sunday School and any Bible reading you have done since. It is time to uphold the promises which the United States also singed onto under the Anglo American Treaty of 1924 which made the United States a signatory in the Mandate System and an enforcer of the British Mandate as well as the others made by the League of Nations. Imagine that, a President actually enforcing a treaty that was ratified by the Senate February 20, 1925. If you are half the businessman you claim to be, then you know that your position requires you to fulfill all actions to as demanded by the Constitution. A treaty ratified by the Senate is, under the Constitution, the law of the land and as such must be upheld by the President. Uphold the treaty and permit Israel some strategic depth, which required all of the lands west of the Jordan River as promised by the British Crown and signed onto by the United States under the Anglo American Treaty of 1924. Doing so will guarantee you a great Presidency which will be considered amongst the greatest in the history books. Remember the promise from Hashem from Genesis 12:3 where it states, “And I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse.” The choice stands before you, which way will you choose.

What the United Nations Vote on Jerusalem Means

 

The United Nations General Assembly’s “Status of Jerusalem” resolution denouncing the United States announcement which carried by a vote of 128–9 with 35 abstentions and 21 absenting themselves from the vote simply showed exactly what the Jewish Prophets prognosticated over two millennia past. They predicted a world turned almost exclusively contrary to the Jews and Jerusalem, the holiest of cities in Israel and continue to throw themselves against the Jewish unbreakable love and attachment with Jerusalem only to be torn and cut as if throwing themselves against a rock-face. The Arab dominated United Nations General Assembly will never find the path to believe that the Jewish State has returned just as Biblically prophesized and their European adjunct simply cannot break free from their over two millennia hatred of anti-Semitism beginning with the Hellenist Greeks to the Roman Caesars on to the Byzantines, the Germanic and other barbarian tribes through the Crusades, Inquisitions, Purifications and other Christian Reformations to the Holocaust and still flowing through the cracks ruining the presumed end of anti-Semitism throughout Europe. The truth is the new anti-Semitism is reborn as anti-Zionism and a total pro-Palestinian slant on all votes, debates and other possibilities with such a malicious vindictiveness that resembles too closely its detestable anti-Semitism of centuries past. The fact that only nine nations including Israel and the United States should not be surprising as between the European influences worldwide and the oil influence of the Muslim Arabs and Iranians, only seven others found the intestinal fortitude to stand in favor of Trump’s engaging the world by starting the move of the American Embassy to Jerusalem in recognition of it as the capital of Israel, well, if truth be told, the capital even if shared in some future of Israel and to be determined. The seven brave nations allied with Israel and the United States were Guatemala, Honduras, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau and Togo. Not exactly, the largest and most impressive of nations, but these nations stood up for truth and reality of history.

 

As for the meaning of this cataclysmic anguished detachment from reality as well as all of human history, it boils down to one simple and recognizable affliction, anti-Semitism. When the greatest example of human despair in and around Syria is, according to the United Nations in all of its manifestations, is the Palestinians condition and their being denied immediate recognition of Jerusalem, the Temple Mount in particular and all of historic Israel belonging not to the Jews but to the Johnny-come-lately Arabs is the initial evidence of unbalanced thinking with a heavy dose of bias. The facts that the only people denied the rights to their own nation are the Jewish People, and they have been genetically proven as a people, is another element to prove the denial of Israeli right to exist as the home of the Jewish People is anti-Semitism. The world fears that permitting the Jews to have their own nation will cement forever the old principles and worn out dogmas of the Old Testament, such as the Ten Commandments and the civil treatment of every person willing to reside peaceably with you and the other mitzvahs, commandments and all the other influences the Jewish People have had on morality and civilization. They fear that they may be judged by their actions and battering their neighbor over the head just because, as is going on in Syria, Yemen, the Sudan with South Sudan, Nigeria and Boko Haram and the other wars and whispers of war, will become something that will be seen as wrong and the world will demand civility and peace between all peoples. This vote signifies that the United Nations no longer cares to observe its own Charter, in particular Article 80, and has abdicated its role as an impartial mediator between Israel and the Arab World. According to Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, the United Nations is tasked to recognize and complete the Mandate system to its completion as laid out by the League of Nations who followed the basic principles of the San Remo Conference. This makes the United Nations party to enforcing the stated border introduced under the British Mandate which was the Jordan River with the Arabs receiving 78% of the British Mandate East of the Jordan River and Jews received the 22% of the British Mandate West of the Jordan River, which makes things so easy to implement. This is what this vote tells us and what the bringing of the similar motion before the Security Council where fourteen nations voted in favor of disestablishing the decree of an American President and an Act of the American Congress forcing an American Veto with the remaining single objection. These motions mean far more than just attempting to dispute Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem or even of dismemberment of Israel piece by piece as the Arabs and the United Nations have been working towards for close to fifty years; these attempts at disavowing President Trump’s statement and superceding his order to move the United States Embassy are an attempt to place the United Nations at some if not any level as superceding the functions of a state to determine their own actions.

These actions by the United Nations far exceed anti-Semitism, as they are an attempt to place the United Nations as a superior state which can instruct other nations what they may and may not do even with their own embassies, lands, armies or even diplomacy. The United Nations has for quite some time now been attempting to instruct the Israeli government on what they are permitted in doing and what they may not do as it displeases those at the top of the world in the United Nations, the soon to be one world governance. They have superseded their own rules and Charter; they have disputed and dissolved treaties such as the San Remo Conference, the Treaty of Sèvres and the Mandate System. They have already permitted the almost complete eradication of Lebanon as the home for the Maronite Christians and other Christian sects and are working to do the same to the Jewish State of Israel. They have meddled with numerous smaller nations but avoided engaging to solve or face the violent perpetrators around the globe and end even the most grievous genocidal wars since its inauguration. Here is a partial list, which includes two-dozen of the worst genocides, from which one can start to recognize the complete lack of effort by any world body to ameliorate, prevent or intervene to end any one of these nor do we see any hope that the world will address those genocidal violence still ravaging parts of the world, particularly from the United Nations. Instead, what do we see the United Nations calling a special session to do? They called their special session to first try and force a binding resolution overturning the President of the United States acting in concurrence with a Congressional Directive which was overwhelmingly passed by both houses of Congress, the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 which passed the Senate by a vote of 93 in favor and 5 opposed and passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 374 in favor and 37 opposed, and when that failed going to the rubberstamp committee known as the General Assembly to get an advisory but unenforceable declaration of distressed feelings. The United Nations is standing at the cusp of it becoming a superior entity capable of altering the actions and laws even of a super power or facing dissolution and the end of its dishonorable acts as over the last seventy years the United Nations has run off the rails. This vote against President Trump was simply another hysterical reaction by the one world influence at the audacity of the President the world appears to love to hate and the fact that it included denial of the existence of the Israeli capital, as Jerusalem, was simply the cherry atop the whipped cream and nuts on the sundae.

 

The United Nations was envisioned by the movers and shakers for the one world government as the eventual successor to the European Union. Their vision while slowly constructing the central governance in Brussels where appointed autocrats dictate to their lessors, the elected leaders of the member states, what currency they must accept, what aid they must give to the failing states and all sorts of other items except for one rather major and vital area, finance. Other than accepting the Euro, and in most cases using it as their official currency much to their own detriment, the European Union central powers do not extend to economic and financial rule. This allows for each nation to set their own minimum wage, their own retirement age, their days worked each week, the hours of a workday, interest rates and other wonderful items are decided by each nation. This has led to Germany being the economic engine which is due to longer workday and longer hours with a later retirement age and much set for industrial output while Greece has a far weaker economy and depends largely on tourism and agriculture and thus a far less dynamic economy. The problem is with their economies both run on the Euro; Greece appears bankrupt and unable to devalue their Euro against Germany’s Euro. If Greece were permitted to return to their own currency, they could adjust it to make their country become more investment enticing leading to an economic upturn, instead the wunderkind in Brussels believe it is better to take some hard earned German Euros and simply allow them to go to Greece in the form of a loan guaranteed by Germany so when Greece defaults, Germany pays Germany back for the bad loan and everybody is happy. Well, everybody is happy once, maybe twice, but eventually Germany, or whatever country is being robbed, as that is what this is, robbery, they get a little peeved and refuse to play any longer. Britain got so distressed seeing that they were next after Germany, did the smart thing, despite the extensive ad campaign to the contrary, they voted for Brexit and went out of the European Union, eventually as it presumably will take two years to completely disassociate. We can expect others to do the same leaving Germany and likely France working away real hard to support Greece and the other nations who are on the receiving end of the cash flow until the European Union goes bust.

 

The European Union was supposed to grow until it contained all of Europe while NAFTS would unite the Americas, and Asia would be bound with China and these multinational groups would slowly assume total power unifying their respective states into a single entity and those entities would then be absorbed by the United Nations and presto-chango there would be a one world governance. Imagine the wonderful things which could be accomplished if all the nations melted away. Imagine if there is a world living the John Lennon dream, Imagine. Lennon’s dream, our nightmare. What is nice is that Israel is the antidote for the one world government. Israel has been the antidote for quite a few things. They were the antidote for the Greek concept of the perfect human being the omnipotent force in all existence and the worship of the human form. Israel was the antidote for the Roman hedonism and use of humans for sport and entertainment making there a class of human whose value was nil. Israel threw off Greek rule once and Roman rule twice, the second leading to the Jews being dispersed throughout the Roman Empire and some thrown beyond to live in the world which was of no consequence. The Romans had done this to others such as the Carthaginians after they sacked Carthage. The Carthaginians ceased to exist as a separate people as did the others. Most of those the Romans dispersed were lost to history and all such peoples and their societies ceased at the moment of dispersion except the Jews. The others could not exist without their lands; the Jews have two lands, one physical, Israel and the other ethereal, Torah. Torah kept the Jews as a people and the promise of Torah that one day we would return to our land and it would become a nation in a single day, that was the promise we lived for, return to our sacred lands and to Jerusalem. It was stated that the land could only flourish for the Jewish People and would deny all others its bounty. This too proved true as in all the years when the Jews were but a small presence, the land barely produced. Now with the Jews returning, the land has sprung to life in all the areas where the Jews reside. (We found this amusingly interesting and some of it rang true, we will leave the rest to you to see what you might think.) The number of prophesies which have been validated by actual history, and we are referring to those which there is little doubt such as the length of the final dispersion until the reestablishment of the State of Israel for the final and permanent time plus additionally that the entire state will not be taken initially but in steps until it includes Biblical Israel being reestablished in its entirety. The United Nations does not believe the Old Testament, nor does it believe the New Testament or any other religious writings with one possible exception, the Quran. But the Quran the United Nations would have is different than the one the Muslims believe as in the United Nations version there is no Allah or any other deity other than the United Nations itself.

 

The United Nations wishes to return the world to when man was the highest form of life and everything came into being to justify humankind purely by accident. We are here because in the infinite universes which were thrown into existence at the moment of creation, most failed catastrophically and disappeared, others became massive super condensed black hole universes with all their matter crushed into a single mass, and an uncountable number of universes are similar to ours with some alterations but within the parameters for a working universe and we are on the one which makes us possible and no real need for any deity, just infinite universes. This theory has begun to run into some serious doubt of late. The mathematics has been run through some of the most powerful supercomputers of our day and they have found some disturbing truths. If any of a thousand variables that have been tested had been different in their mass, force particle, interaction-ability and off in any area by even one-tenth of one percent and we could not have come into existence. The universe had to be crafted so exactly and precisely with so many different variables being so specific, that many scientists have concluded that the universe could never have come into being by a pure accident no matter how many universes there were. As one cosmologist put it when asked if the current theories about the universe ruled out there being an omnipotent deity, he ruled out the omnipotent deity who could alter things at a whim and was interactive breaking the rules when such an entity felt the need and stated instead that if there were a deity which created the universe, he was one heck of a mathematician. Still, Jews, at least the majority of religious Jews, will continue to pray and fully accept Hashem as the creator and heck of a mathematician whose formulas include the occasional miracle right when it is necessary. We will also believe that there is more to existence than what the physicists, cosmologists, chemists, biologists or any other area of research can ever explain with all their knowledge. There is a force within every person placed there by some unknown force which must connect all of reality and links us to the next world, a place of unimaginable calm and peacefulness where we no longer need to worry about our physical bodies as we have left them for another existence where our purest form, our soul interacts with every soul that had, does and will exist, for the soul is the true infinite form, a piece of the Almighty. The United Nations becomes so irrelevant at this level that returning to discuss them further would ruin our mood, so for now, good-bye.

As North Korean Missiles Fly Tillerson Lies

 

We made a poor calculation, or so it seems. We had predicted, “somewhere between Thanksgiving and Christmas Kim Jong-un will announce he has had it with the American double-dealing and perversity and lies and return to firing missiles.” Apparently, Kim Jong-un did not even wait for Labor Day as on Saturday North Korea launched a set of short-range ballistic missiles and on Tuesday fired another missile, this time over the Islands of Japan. The series of missile firing came just days after U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson welcomed North Korea’s recent “restraint” suggested talks with Pyongyang may be possible “in the near future,” (Watch video below). Tillerson stated in response to the North Korean provocations that the missiles were a “provocative act” adding that the United States would continue to search for a peaceful solution. This is where we question whether or not Secretary of State Tillerson may be going off the rails concerning Kim Jong-un and North Korea as compared to his stances on Israel, Kurdistan and the Arab World’s general offensive along with Iran and Turkey against the world, specifically the Western World.

 

 

Secretary Tillerson, it has been noted in conjecture, has been the driving force driving the Administration’s suspicions and commentary against the Kurdish intentions to vote for a referendum to declare their independence from Iraq and form their formerly promised state of Kurdistan before the British reneged on their promise. The Secretary of State has also been a consistent thorn in the side of relations with Israel. The problems with Israel do not rise to the level that the relations with the Kurds have reached, but Israel has her independence already. Still, having Secretary of State Tillerson constantly promoting policies which reflect the Arabist views of the world in general and the views of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, or potentially Mecca and more appropriately, Medina, is wearing thin as it flies in the face of policies which would be to the advantage of the United States specifically and the free world generally.

 

We understand that the apparent assignment for the State Department is to play Devil’s advocate and oppose what would be right and best for the United States. This was evidenced when they sent a communist group to assist in writing the United Nations Charter and gave the Soviets advantages at every corner. It was further established with their strong advice to President Truman not to recognize Israeli independence, good thing he ignored their advice. Now they are advising the United States deny nationhood to the strongest and closest ally existing in the war on the Islamic State, the only group to have large success in driving the Islamic State from northern Syria, the peoples whom the United States has been arming and Israel has given tactical assistance yet the State Department claims they are unworthy of statehood as that would detract from Iraqi sovereignty and weaken Iran. We seem to remember some commentary about knocking Iran down a peg or two and rewriting parts of the deal with Iran over nuclear research into nuclear weaponry and the processing of uranium by President Trump. Apparently, Secretary Tillerson is concerned about what effect a Kurdish State might have on Iraq and Iran and very likely the Islamic State and Syrian dictator Bashir al-Assad.

 

These steps come in addition to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson making some antagonizing noise over Israeli “settlements” referring to legally built communities and cities according to the Oslo Accords stipulations while ignoring illegal building by the European Union along with the Arabs in Area C against every stipulation concerning this region by the Oslo Accords. It has become apparent that Secretary of State Tillerson and his State Department have decided once again to adopt the Arab revisionism of the Oslo Accords in which Israel has no right to Jerusalem, Akko, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Tiberius, Eilat, Beersheba and Tel Aviv. This had been the interpretation of the final settlement according to Yasser Arafat and has been adopted by Mahmoud Abbas and the PA and apparently also adopted by Secretary Tillerson in spirit if not in its entirety. Such sophomoric, treacherous and toxic advice can only embolden Abbas and the Arabs to avoid direct negotiations and in its stead demand concessions from Israel which Secretary Tillerson and the State Department will very likely pressure Israel to concede, as they always have, regardless of the position of President Trump or his Middle East envoy Jared Kushner and President Trump’s International Negotiator Jason Greenblatt which appears to be more open ended. While President Trump’s team has stated clearly an Administration position of no preconditions, preconceptions, or premonitions of the design of a solution, the State Department with a few worthy exceptions appears to be backing the continued failings of the “two-state-solution” directly in opposition to all other, including their own, efforts.

 

Secretary Tillerson also came out expressly against Kurdish independence. One would be following logic and good sense if they were to conclude from previous indications such as the United States arming of the Kurds in Syria and in warning off Turkey’s Erdoğan, who had started a general campaign militarily against the Kurds in Syria and Iraq, thus protecting Kurdish interests, that the Administration would back the concept of a new country named Kurdistan where the Kurds could fulfil their destiny free of tyrannical and counter productive interference from Baghdad. We would and have gone further in suggesting a greater Kurdistan which would span across northeastern Syria, northern Iraq and northwestern Iran and for allowing Kurds from outside the area, from Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran in particular, to return to their newly reestablished homelands free from outside influences or policies. The Kurds were another indigenous group which had been promised a return to their homelands and a freely established state after World War I and the divisions of the great empires of Austro-Hungary, German (which had included Poland within its borders) and Ottoman. One might be led to believe that Turkey would desire such a nation as a place they could force their Kurdish minority to emigrate and end their fears of Kurdish revolt but Erdoğan envisions a greater Turkey which would envelop the Kurdish regions and then the Kurds would be facing a similar fate than that of the Armenians under Ottoman rule. One can only wonder where Secretary Tillerson stands on the ideas of a greater Turkey or a hegemonic Iran which would include much of Iraq plus all of Syria and Lebanon (see concept map below). Greater Turkey would include areas of Syria and Iraq which the Kurds desire for their homelands and extend slightly beyond before they would run into Iranian Shiite opposition but would include Sunni areas of Iraq. Hegemonic Iran would incorporate much of Iraq and Syria plus all, if not beyond, Lebanon, Oman, Yemen, Djibouti and Qatar thus surrounding Saudi Arabia and Jordan who would be thrust together potentially being forced into having relations with Israel. The greater question would be how far along the coast of the Horn of Africa Iran might spread and whether or not Jordan would invite Saudi Arabian protection as part of the Gulf Cooperation Council (included in map).

Our guess of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reacting to such a map as depicted would be outrage that Israel would take control of the lands actually promised her by the San Remo Conference, the Treaty of Sèvres, the Treaty of Lausanne, the Mandate System, the Conventions of the League of Nations and Article 80 of the United Nations Charter making these treaties and the entirety of their implications, promises, stipulations and implications all enforced by the United Nations. He would likely view at such a point as this that Israel rightfully belonged to Saudi Arabia as the British Mandate of Jordan had been included under Saudi protective rule, why not the remaining 22% of the British Mandate. He would question, with the support of the deep state of the State Department, the protestations expressed by the Israelis and would ignore the religious implications and what would verily happen should Israeli citizens ever come under Muslim or Arab rule. Secretary Tillerson would likely read some missive from the Saudi Royals which would be presented as their guarantee of protection for the Jews of Israel as they are People of the Book (أهل الكتاب) and as such a protected class of Dhimmis. He would infer that Dhimmis meant honored guests and a protected group as stated and would ignore the horrid rumors about the Jews being Kāfir (كافر) and thus could be subjected to the choice of convert to Islam or die without ever compromising their Dhimmitude.

 

Allow us to end with a beseechment to the leading advisors and their coordination impairment and the confusion, embarrassment and detriment they have caused. Please, President Trump and especially Chief of Staff John F. Kelly, Four Star Marine General (ret), clean up the imbroglio which is the President’s Cabinet. First and foremost, determine who amongst them are capable of supporting a single set of ideas and ideals and are willing to cooperate, then be rid of the rest. Next, sit them all down and play for them the main points President Trump promised to accomplish while campaigning. Then ask who would not be capable of not only supporting but actively engaging all their energies to accomplish whatever tasks they may receive to get these things accomplished. Those who appear even the slightest to delay and especially those who cough, hem and haw, be done with them and receive not their counsel. Lastly, ask each Secretary to submit plans to, first, restructure their department, second, cut their department staffing by a minimum of fifty percent, and lastly, to dissolve their department entirely and advising where critical actions could be best served. Then meet with the President and go through these plans and decide which departments need to implement which plan. Just as a starter, may we suggest you get rid of Educations Department, Homeland Security Department; half or more of the law enforcement bureaus starting with BTFE, and have the State Department reduce its staff by fifty percent, at least twice. Advice for President Trump, ignore much of the noise which erupts regularly from the State Department, as often doing the opposite of what they advise is the best move.
