It is Time to End the Arab Occupation

 

Yesterday we posted an article filled with unassailable set of original ownership of the lands of Israel, the lands between the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River and down the East Bank belong to the Israelites who built their homelands after spending forty years in the dessert such that those who doubted Hashem died out allowing a new and newly energized and reinvigorated People ready to do as numerous others Peoples would also do much later in history, struck out their claim to a strip of land to call their own. Thus the Israelite Nation would be born established with near her current borders, though the current borders are smaller now than back in somewhere around 1000 to 1250 BCE. Somewhat later in history Greece was cut from the Aegean Islands, Italy from the remnants of the Roman Empire on the peninsula centered on Rome, the Franks, the Celts all much later in history. Then there were the United States in 1776 CE, Germany in 1871 CE, China unified around 210 BCE, India around 550 BCE and out from under British colonial rule in 1947, one year before Israel also broke from under British colonial rule from the Mandate, starting near 925 CE continuing gaining other nationalities of the isles through the 1920s but so many doubt the Jewish claims to Israel. Israel was known as Judea for centuries from where the name Jew was derived. The name Palestine was derived from the name the Roman Empire imprinted on the lands in order to destroy the Israelite, the Jewish claim to the lands and their plot appears to still have traction.

 

There is no more validity to the name Palestine than there is West Bank which is actually parts of Judea and most of Samaria but Jordan also was attempting to erase the Jewish sounding names so as to weaken the Jewish claims. The proof that their claims are largely bogus is their referencing the Israeli Capital’s name as Jerusalem and not al-Quds, the name imposed on the Jewish Capital City to erase its history just as Istanbul erased the history of Constantinople. The main difference is that Jerusalem is in Jewish hands and thus they do not have solid claims to change its name though it would not surprise me if textbooks in Europe soon refer to Jerusalem as al-Quds as Europe sinks slowly from a Judeo-Christian culture to an Islamic culture at which point every shred of Western ethics and equal rights for all peoples will be replaced by Sharia and the inequality as imposed by Islam where women are lesser beings, non-Muslims must have scorn heaped upon them and the courts decide cases on the basis of which side is Muslim allowing their truth to outweigh reality and deciding Islam on Islam trials by position in the society over the truth. Civility in Europe is about to die a horrid death and what is required to prevent this catastrophe is entirely missing in the European Union (EU) rule as the EU is nothing more than a group of vengeful bureaucrats who would sell their birthright if the price were right.

 

Imagine if Israel had renamed the Sinai Peninsula Western Israel and claimed that it belonged to Israel and they evicted Egyptians from their homes, businesses, farms and other properties demanding the flee or be shot and them place Israelis in these homes, businesses and other properties, what would be the reaction of the world bodies? There would be an outrage unequalled in all of history with the possible exception of the Romans renaming Judea calling it Syria Palaestina. Yet when Jordan took control of areas which belonged to Israel and were called Judea and Samaria and Jordan forcibly removed every Jews, destroyed every Synagogue, every Jewish house of worship, and erased every vestige of Jewish history and ownership renaming streets, villages, cities and anything else which had a Hebrew or ancient name attaching them to Jewish history there was not even the slightest protest outside the Jewish communities and even then largely the Israeli voices. The world walked off ignoring everything simply claiming that Jordan had won these lands fair and square in a war and the Jews needed to suck it up and live with it. That was the tone of things in 1948.

 

Jump forward nineteen years to 1967 and Jordan once again joined in a war against Israel joining Syria and Egypt and with support from other Arab nations and Israel liberated these same stolen lands and the world went insane. They demanded that Israel return every inch of land, not on paper, but in every ounce of spirit. They now are calling for the last lands to be returned this time to a group of criminal savage terror loving hateful people steeped in sixty years of propagandas demanding they murder Israelis and that appears often to be their main occupation. They want the Arabs called Palestinians, so they can claim they were the Romans or even some aboriginal tribe which resided here when and Cro-Magnon prehistoric humanoids ruled the lands through brutal conquest where it truly was survival of the strongest and most violent. Looking at much of their modern activities and one might be persuaded to believe they are directly related to these prehistoric humanoids. The idea is to invent a nation and allow them to perform any and all forms of terrorism, but only against the Jews and Israel, and as long as they leave the rest of the world alone, who cares, its only that troublesome people we desire to be rid of. So what if much of modern life comes as a direct result of their contributions over the centuries, we can survive without the Jew. That is the tenor of the discussion though such is never said publically, well, almost never. Then there was the little open microphone incident where French President Sarkozy and United States President Obama which drove us to fashion a fun picture of some potential future event involving the three soon thereafter (see below). The open microphone revealed this little gem which went like this in the the conversation between Sarkozy and Obama during the G-20 conference in Cannes in 2011 where the following was overheard,

 

French President Sarkozy said: “Netanyahu, I can’t stand him. He’s a liar.”
United States President Obama snapped back, “You are sick of him, but I have to work with him every day.”

There have been other such incidents where a conversation was overheard by the wrong party or microphones which were supposed to be off were live or even cases where reporters knew the person controlling the translation microphones did not like a particular person the reporter really desired something juicy so he arranged for a microphone to remain live unknown to the target. All’s fair in politics, or so it would seem. Another incident took place at a fancy dress party in Britain where Daniel Bernard in 2001 overheard as an interested third party at this posh London event as French Ambassador to the United Kingdom was heard to state,

 

“All the current troubles in the world are because of that shitty little country Israel. Why should the world be in danger of World War III because of those people?”

 

We could probably spend hours looking up slips of the tongue where different leaders of Western nations, ambassadors and other various politicians and officials stated their true feelings towards Israel but this should be sufficient as some choice examples.

 

The plain reality is that the land was occupied for nineteen years by Jordan who illegally transferred Jordanian citizens into the areas they illegally held both willingly and unwillingly which makes a great many of those people currently residing in what is falsely referred to as the West Bank illegal residents who should rightfully be returned to Jordan. Further, Jordan offered and almost every last resident took citizenship of Jordan which, as they were never Israeli citizens, all of the Arab population in Judea and Samaria Jordanian citizens no matter how many times Jordan claimed they rescinded all of their citizenships. That was just another way that the Arabs were allowed to illegally force situation onto Israel which were not of her making. The end result is there are, if the numbers provided are anywhere near valid, approaching six or seven million Arabs who have no country and are thus considered to be Israeli outcasts. We are simply waiting for that number to double using it to cover all the refugees flooding into Europe such that when Europe, if they should, refuse these refugees and demand they return to their origins they will all be assigned Israeli cities to claim as their original homes which they lost at some preassigned time in the past and demand that Israel give them their five hundred hectares, a plow and an ox.

Rumored Plans Imply Unity Government Imminent

 

There have been persistent rumblings that Prime Minister Netanyahu was in the late stages of replacing Jewish Home in his coalition with the Zionist Coalition of the Labor Party including Tzipi Livni and one or two of her Party’s members and the Labor Party. Politically this would appear to be a dangerous move as it could also serve to tear Netanyahu’s Likud Party apart with those truly loyal to Netanyahu and what some are referring to as his leftist leanings remaining with him and the nationalists possibly defecting to Jewish Home. Any move by any members of Likud to side with Jewish Home against a merging with Yitzhak Hertzog’s Labor Party risking Netanyahu replacing them with more left leaning, compromise through surrender wing of the Likud Party. For all those claiming that such would not be possible as Netanyahu had to have learned his necessary lesson from Arik Sharon’s forming a coalition of the willing under the banner of his own Party which he called Kadima and was molded carefully to allow for the surrender of Gaza to the Arabs, as a warning that such is political suicide. But on the other hand Prime Minister Netanyahu was a part of the loyalist Likud members who remained in the coalition as a Likud Member up until the very end and thus may have taken an entirely different lesson from the ill-fated Arik Sharon recasting of his ruling coalition without requiring new elections as a potential route to placating those nagging problems from all sides.

 

Prime Minister Netanyahu has to read the polls and political winds and realize that he is by far the most powerful political inevitability that Israel has witnessed, ranking even higher than Arik Sharon. A recent poll showed Netanyahu’s inevitability for the office of Prime Minister were elections to be held today with his topping every list of potential opponents by safe and unassailable numbers. Such a situation has to make one believe that nothing they could do would damage their position at the top of the heap, especially if such moves were seen as cutting the legs out from under any political threat from the leftist end of the political spectrum. The one consideration not looked into was the potential for a right of Netanyahu political figure rising were Netanyahu to move leftwards and make that unity government everybody claims would be required in order to make the Prime Minister’s position unassailable. Perhaps those taking these polls see Prime Minister Netanyahu as so right wing that there are no politicians in Israel today to the right of Netanyahu. Of course Israelis to the right of Netanyahu could easily argue that point and do so with vigor. What is making these rumors persist has been the adopting by Yitzhak Hertzog of a unified stand against the Iran nuclear agreement standing aside Netanyahu providing him the political cover to take such a strong stand.

 

The rumor that persists is that Prime Minister Netanyahu remained in Arik Sharon’s government for as long as he did was because he agreed with the whole plan which was never implemented where Gaza being turned over to the Arabs would have been followed within a year of turning over of almost all of Judea and Samaria all in order to forge a seemingly maximalist Palestinian body which Israel could rightfully claim was the definition by all of the borders of an Arab state named Palestine was and should be and by surrendering these lands Israel was unilaterally ending the entire Arab Israeli conflict as if forming an Arab state was the end of any protests and further demands. The reality, something we fear may soon come to fruition, is that by Israel surrendering all the lands that the United Nations, European Union, Russia and even many Arabs consider not only fair but beyond what any Israeli politician could survive relenting for the formation of the demanded Arab state, that Netanyahu would be rewarded with peace and an end to the claims by the Arabs for Israel to surrender more lands and not only would the entirety of the Arab-Israeli conflict be over but Netanyahu would be assured of the next Nobel Peace Prize.

 

But there is an elephant in the room that apparently has found a place to hide in the open. Mahmoud Abbas has made it adamantly clear that even if granted such borders that doing such would not end the war against Israel. Saeb Erekat has made it just as clear that the only conceivable end to the Arab Israeli problem would be borders replacing Israel with an Arab state whose first acts would be the extermination of the over six-million Jews residing in the Holy Lands and the destruction of every Synagogue and Jewish holy site. Hamas leadership has included all of this plus the eradication of the entirety of the Jewish peoples worldwide. Apparently the sole people who see giving the Arab fanatics exactly what the rest of the world imagines would be a fair and equitable solution ending the problem overlooks the actual problem, this is not a struggle over land but rather a religious struggle over who has a right to live anywhere, not just from the River to the Sea. The Arab-Israeli conflict is but a minute part of the Islamist puzzle and one the majority of the Islamic world could even bother to stop and utter an opinion about as currently there are far larger fish to fry, namely the conquest of Europe. There are refugees to send as the advance shock troops which will further tax the European Union and individual European Governmental ability to pay out the funds which will most certainly be required when these refugees have resided and gained identity cards and decided which country they can receive the greatest amount of benefits for the least amount of effort as many of these refugees were not overly wealthy in Syria or whatever other nation they originated from and view the governments of Europe as potential gift baskets to be tapped for all they are worth. Nowhere in these plans is there a chapter on the Arab-Israeli conflict though there is a diagram in the appendix as seen below defining the areas between Lebanon-Syrian Border and the Egyptian Sinai-Negev border defined as the River to the Sea meaning the Jordan River to the shores of the Mediterranean Sea marked Palestine.

The Arab and Muslim worlds regard the Arab-Israeli conflict as being over; decided and any loud noises from the area must be celebratory gun fire and most certainly not a potential renewed conflict. The problem is that the rest of the world sees the Arab-Israeli conflict as the seminal cause of all evil committed in the world by the powers of Islam. As long as the rest of the world holds Israel responsible for any and all acts of violent extremism from within the Islamic world simply because they have refused to just give away the candy store, the mantra of it’s those Israeli Jews causing the problems because of their selfish demands for defendable borders as the seminal cause of every last injustice and criminal intent in the world. The Arabs and the terror wielding kleptocratic criminal leaders in Ramallah all realize that as long as their war is solely with Israel they can do no wrong and Israel will be blamed for all sins, period. They hold dear to the idea first put forth by Yasser Arafat when he was, as the supposed joke goes, asked by Osama bin Laden (fill in your favorite living evil genius here in place of Osama bin Laden for modern context), ‘How it was that I, Osama bin Laden who has a few paltry attacks while the Arabs under Arafat’s control have been responsible for the murder of near uncountable people worldwide is supported and lavished with honors and given podiums the world over to spit his vitriol?’ To Which Arafat replied, ‘Osama, my dear friend, it is simple. You attack people and take cause against the imperial western governments while I claim to simply wish to take the land from the Jews and murder Israeli Jews. The world supports what it is I plan to accomplish and will forgive my every transgression providing I can frame it all as part of getting the Jews to surrender their nation and once more become the living embodiment of all evil the world desires to heap upon an innocent people and I promise to give them what they want.’

 

Now we have Mahmoud Abbas, otherwise known as Yasser Arafat without the two day beard growth and with a suit and tie, who is giving the world the same old swan song. Muslim terrorists are gunning innocent civilians in the streets of Paris and countless other tragedies as, London, New York, Madrid, Bali, Mumbai, Beslan, Moscow, Boston and the assassination of Robert Kennedy yet the world blames the Jewish State. Hatred of the Jewish State of Israel is this generation’s anti-Semitic target of choice, and now the Israeli Prime Minister may be planning to fall into the trap of believing that by doing just this one last sacrifice and the world will love him and the Jewish State. Doesn’t he get it that no matter what he does, if it leaves one Jew free to rule themselves then the world will demand they surrender the spot on which they stand and hound them to death every step they take claiming they are moving just to change where the spot is drawn. The blame has to be the Jew’s fault and thus it is the Jewish State’s fault for Paris as if only they had given back more and sacrificed more Jews; for London as if only they had given back more and sacrificed more Jews; for Hebdo as if only they had given back more and sacrificed more Jews; for London, New York as if only they had given back more and sacrificed more Jews; for Bali, Mumbai, Beslan, Moscow, Boston, the assassination of Robert Kennedy and the Barbary Pirates plundering. It matters not what the latest and greatest tragedy is, the reason always is traced back by those intrepid reporters for the New York Times, BBC, CNN, Fox News, AFP, al Jazeera, AP, Reuters and whomever else is reporting, even Israeli media such as Haaretz; Israel must return to the peace talks even if they are left sitting at the table while the world burns down around them. They must give up other concessions to please and mitigate the great insult which Arafat, Abbas, Erekat or whomever is tasked with sitting that close to the Israeli representative faces and is forced to suffer. As the hot microphone discourse between then French President Sarkozy and United States President Obama went on privately unknowingly with one of their microphones still live;

“I can’t stand him. He’s a liar,” Sarkozy said of Netanyahu.
Obama replied, “You’re tired of him; what about me? I have to deal with him every day.”

So now it is starting to look as if Netanyahu has finally tripped and is about to fall beyond the cusp and surrender all of Judea and Samaria and half of Jerusalem. He will remove upwards of three-fourths of a million Jews destroying their cities and communities and destroying their livelihoods and dreams. He will claim it is all occupied lands which belong to the Arabs. Netanyahu will claim by making it Arab lands, he will have found the magic bullet to puncture the obsessive vitriol suffered by Israel at the hands of the rest of the world. This, Netanyahu will claim, finished the dream first put forth by Arik Sharon who was struck down before he could accomplish his ingenious plans. Netanyahu will claim to know this because of his bravely standing with Sharon until he didn’t stand with Sharon and now he is completing that which Sharon began and given the Jewish State the legitimacy it deserves and has lacked until this point. Netanyahu will have now given those who took the name Palestinian for its name recognition and power to steal the story of the Jews, the recognition that their claims to all the land are valid as why else would the Jews give up even half of Jerusalem if it were actually their historic Capital city. This, Abbas, Erekat, Rabbo and the rest will claim proves everything they have ever said including from the River to the sea Palestine must be free. When Netanyahu loses the support of Jewish Home Party and one-third of the Likud Party he will simply make a deal with Herzog, which will be blessed by the Supreme Court as Netanyahu surrendered just as they have demanded nearly forever. Of course this new coalition of the willing to surrender to every demand no matter its legitimacy because we must appear reasonable before the world, thus the party name we have chosen is Quisling Party. Is there any sanity left in this world or has everybody gone beyond the cusp?

Hollande Wins Extremely Close French Election

Despite early predictions that Hollande would defeat Sarkozy by a comfortable margin, I had said that Sarkozy would probably win. I quickly realized I might be in trouble when later that day Marine Le Pen announced to her supporters her intent to cast a blank ballot and encouraged they do follow her lead. It was a classic case of “If I cannot have it then I refuse to play and I will take my ball and go home.” Well, that just may have been the turning point costing Sarkozy the election as the Nationalist Le Pen voters would likely have split strongly against Hollande and, by default, for Sarkozy.

The difference was much closer than anybody had predicted with 16.56 million votes for Hollande, 15.56 million votes for Sarkozy and two million casting blank ballots following the Le Pen instructions and easily changing the result in the process. All that remains now is to wait for Hollande to make all his appointments and then we will have a better idea as to whether his promises of scrapping the austerity program for a stimulus and growth program was bluster or an honest threat. Should a Hollande government actually take the route of using government spending in order to stimulate the economy then the European Union may be heading back into the deep waters of insolvency and doing so very rapidly. This election may prove very costly to far more than the European Union and the stability of the Euro, it could have ramifications well beyond Europe, especially if it leads to the crash of the Euro and each country in Europe retreating back to their native currencies. Such a necessity could also force a strain on the entire European fabric from which the European Union is cut and place the entire structure to stresses beyond its tolerance. We may have to address a world with no European Union and an immediate struggle for preeminence between France, Germany, and Britain. Europe could return to its historic and turbulent ways with each country wresting as much for itself at the expense of the rest. Will international trade suffer seriously should the trade agreements and other alliances forged by the European Union fall shattered? We may have to experience the answer to that very question.

The next election to come will be the Israeli elections which are expected to be held on September 4, 2012. This election is unlikely to produce any surprises as to the ultimate winner as Prime Minister Netanyahu and his Likud Party are predicted to breeze into victory garnering at least thirty seats. The real test in the Israeli election will be the contest for second, third, and fourth. Should Nationalist Parties gain sufficient seats that Likud can make a viable coalition clearing the sixty-one seats necessary, then the Israeli government will have a unified coalition free of obligations to some of the lesser parties for the first time in memory. What will be more likely is that Netanyahu and Likud Party and the other Nationalist Parties will fall short and need to include the Religious-Nationalists and likely the Religious Parties which will leave the coalition open to a wide set of demands any one of which could be utilized as a wedge to force early elections.

Then, come early November, the biggest election of the year, the American Presidency along with one-third of the Senate and the entire House of Representatives. This will be a contentious election with many distractions and a likelihood of violent Occupy demonstrations at either or both Party Conventions. The coming summer promises to be anything but boring between the continued Arab uprisings which may aim for Jordan first after Syria and then the countries of the GCC including Saudi Arabia, and more if the Occupy demonstrations end up breaking into violent riots. So, I guess all that is left to do is buckle-up and get ready for a wild summer roller-coaster of excitement in the public realm to rival those summer teen-movies released to your neighborhood theaters. I am not sure if I am looking forward to a summer of lots of choices for blog articles or simply scared of a summer of lots of choices for blog articles.
