Gaza Infrastructure Crashing but Missile Production Booming!

 

Gaza is having another of its all too frequent crisis with electricity at the lead amongst other crises. Not to fear, the free electricity provided by Israel is continuing to be provided free of charge, not exactly the best of principles at work there. Israel cannot be blamed this time and Arab nations are willing to sell Hamas the fuel which they could afford except that the Palestinian Authority (PA) demands they pay the extortionary tax on the fuel which the PA is refusing to forgo this time around. This is simply the PA attempting to extort more money from whoever ends up paying the fuel bill with their taxes added. Meanwhile the Gaza desalinization plant has had to shut down for lack of power, as have most manufacturers, as they cannot afford to run on generators and still realize a profit. The farms are being swamped with wastewater which is poisoning the crops which will lead to food shortages in the future. But the world will be glad to know that the luxury hotels and swank top end shops, restaurants and the mall are all operating as usual, as there are priorities, they just do not include the regular Arab residing in Gaza. There is one industry which Hamas claims is operating with such proficiency that they are ready to start an export business to the Arab nations surrounding Israel of missiles with which they too can launch attacks on Israel. They claim to be producing the highest quality missiles in quantities. But they are unable to rebuild the apartments destroyed over a year ago in their last war with Israel. Their tunnel and underground cement reinforced bunkers and tunnels are also coming along up to Hamas’s expectations while they appear to have run out of cement for rebuilding schools, clinics and residences.

 

It should not be too long before an emergency meeting of the European Union declares that Israel is not doing enough to assist the Gazans in their time of crisis and that Israel must once again allow tons of rebar and cement to be provided to Gaza for the rebuilding of schools, clinics and residences. This would be the third time that this demand would be being made. Apparently the European Union and it member states believe they did not provide near enough rebar and cement the first two times, even when combined, to rebuild these structures. Israel was guaranteed that the last time such provisions were provided that if progress were not seen that then the Europeans and the United Nations would give some degree of credence to the Israeli claims that these provisions were being diverted. Expect soon after the European Union begins screaming for the United Nations to jump ugly on Israel for not providing sufficient provisions, fuel, water, electricity and for not providing repairs to these functions in Gaza. Never mind that no Israeli would be permitted to enter Gaza to make such repairs and if Israel did go to make such repairs then Gaza would claim Israel had attacked them and demand an end to the Israeli incursions. It starts to get confusing when trying to figure out exactly what is expected by the European Union, United Nations and so many other governments and organizations when they claim Israel is to blame for the squandering of funds by the PA and Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

 

The Congressional Research Service report entitled, “U.S. Foreign Aid to the Palestinians” states: “Since the establishment of limited Palestinian self-rule in the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the mid-1990’s, the U.S. government has committed more than $5 billion in bilateral economic and non-lethal security assistance to the Palestinians, who are among the world’s largest per capita recipients of international foreign aid.” The report continues to show the extent that it has been mismanagement and corruption which has led to a complete breakdown in governmental aid and normal function at the public level leaving the entirety of the Arab Palestinian governance in complete disarray mired in its own misappropriations and inability to form a functioning society at any level. The one thing that the PA has proven successful at is providing positions throughout the Security Forces for terrorists from the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades. The corruption, nepotism and graft are at such levels that perhaps one dollar out of every five makes its way towards governmental operations for the public such as power, water and other services. In Gaza, the main area funded is the production of rockets, missiles, tunnels and underground bunkers with almost nothing making it in any way to assist the people. There is no government service and recent polling indicates that the vast majority of people in Gaza would leave for anywhere else given the opportunity to leave. This desire comes without any demands for financial aid or assistance, just simply open the border and they would be heading for elsewhere.

 

The article Gaza: Let their people go! by Dr. Martin Sherman opens stating, “If the borders opened for one hour, 100,000 young people would leave Gaza” – Rashid al-Najja, vice dean, Gaza’s Al-Azhar University; “…I’d go to Somalia, Sudan — anywhere but here” – Salim Marifi, student, Gaza’s Al-Azhar University, in Al Jazeera, May 6 2015. We would like to thank Dr. Martin Sherman for some of the other figures we use in this article. Obviously, something is rotten in Gaza and we would bet that similar feelings exist in the PA controlled areas. The PA controlled areas are somewhat better off solely because their infrastructure is almost completely kept in repair by Israel, as the systems are interconnected. Further, the PA areas are under semiautonomous rule while Gaza is completely separate from Israel. The so-called blockade is in reality simply a filter which attempts to limit imports into Gaza which are considered to be dual-use weapons grade equipment and supplies. Examples are such things as saltpeter, potassium, sheets of copper, rebar, cement, steel sheets, certain piping and other items of a similar nature. Even with such items readily defined by international agencies, Israel has often made exceptions under international pressure and every time, no matter who makes the guarantees, Hamas and Islamic Jihad divert the vast majority of the provisions into weapons, rockets, missiles, tunnels, bunkers and cement reinforced positions all in preparation for their next war with Israel. After detections of the diversion have become undeniable, the guarantor then professes innocence and claims they had been tricked and had honestly believed Hamas and friends when they claimed they would behave this time. Of course they knew full well that Hamas would not act in the promised manner and would use almost everything provided to arm up and make Gaza a far more treacherous place with ambushes and traps set all over the Gaza City and other built up areas and have interconnected tunnels plus bunkers with tunnels leading into Israel to try and kidnap Israelis and tunnels into the Sinai to infiltrate people in and out for terrorist acts against Egypt as well as providing other assistance to terrorists in the Sinai and to launch rockets from the Sinai into Israel opening yet another front.

 

These betrayals of Israel by the United Nations and European Union are no different than the demands time after time that Israel makes concessions to the PA in order to pretend to restart the peace process. Let us be honest, there never has and never will be a peace process, there is only the concessions process by which the PA is enabled to demand and receive additional lands and other concessions in exchange for promises which will never be kept. Mahmoud Abbas is heading for Washington to meet with President Trump where he will once again spin his yarn about how desperately the Arabs desire peace with Israel if only Israel would allow them to have the Green line and half of Jerusalem as the basis for their promised nation. All Israel need do is withdraw back to the pre Six Day War lines and surrender claims to the entirety of the Old City of Jerusalem and not to fear, the PA will permit universal access to the holy sites of other religions. This was the same promise made by Jordan and by the PA in Hevron and in all cases, it was a deceit. Visiting Josephs Tomb in Hevron requires IDF escort performed at two o’clock in the morning and the visit has to be completed before the sun rises. The trip need be made in an armored bus and often upon arrival; they find the tomb has once again been destroyed. Then arrangements are made with the IDF for Israelis to steal in at night to repair the tomb only to have the Arabs destroy it again. The truth is the Arab Palestinians do not recognize any other religion other than Islam thus there is no other religious site to worry about and if it is not Islamic, then it must be destroyed.

 

Six frames depicting the destructions, discovery of damage, finishing rebuilding, prayers and an endearing good-bye, or perhaps with luck til next time

 

There is a simple truth which is understood by most in the world about the Arabs in general and the Palestinian groups in particular, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, PLO, Fatah, Palestinian Authority and various other smaller groups, that concerns their claims to wanting a state of their own. That is a lie and everyone knows this full well but they continue to play the game because they cannot think of another option. There is no imagination which can understand that the only thing the Arabs, especially the Palestinian groups, desire, and that is the end of Israel. What the world fears is what would happen should the Palestinians game stop being played, and thus they were forced to make it on their own within the remainder of the Arab world. The answer is actually easy to figure out. One needs look no further than Kuwait after they regained their homes from Saddam Hussein after Gulf War I. The PA leadership, Yasser Arafat, sided with Saddam Hussein in that war and this sat rather uncomfortably with the people and leaders of Kuwait so when they returned and finished extinguishing the oil rig fires they turned their minds to their next item on their to-do list. It was an easy choice and they simply evicted three-hundred-thousand Palestinian Arabs out of Kuwait with absolutely no concerns for their safety of future. That is pretty much, what would happen should they ever seek somewhere to live in the Arab world; they would be rejected and left without anywhere to go and this worries the European Union and the United Nations. The fact that by pretending and playing the Palestinian Arab game, that its endpoint would be the eradication of every Jews and possibly Arab and others in Israel, is apparently far less of a strain on their consciences. Perhaps they believe they can continue this song and dance indefinitely and somehow Israel will survive, after all, she has done quite well despite all the obstacles, hasn’t she? Israel is resourceful and will find a way to continue and somehow remain a light unto the nations when they have disasters or need medical advances or unbelievable software not to mention being the great start-up nation all while producing more Nobel Prize winners per capita than any other country. Why would not the Europeans, Americans, and the world believe they could snipe and victimize Israel just as they always have and not simply expect the Israelis to rebound and continue making amazing contributions in virtually every field?

 

But, what if Israel no longer is willing to be denied the promises made by the entire world including King Feisal representing the Arab world signing the agreements from the San Remo Conference to the Mandate System and the numerous agreements all after the fall of the Ottoman Empire during World War I. There are a growing number of Israelis who are becoming less and less willing to accept compromises and the stealth theft of lands promised the Jews and Zionists. We are speaking of the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea and particularly the lands of Judea and Samaria, the lands illegally occupied by Jordan who forced Arabs to move into these lands and then refused to accept their return after Israel liberated these lands in June of 1967. The majority of Palestinian Arabs residing in Judea and Samaria who resided in the area during the Six Day War still hold Jordanian passports and identification papers. This is another dirty little secret which is never spoken of as it leads people to the truth. Another little secret is that there exist large Palestinian Arab refugee camps within the PA areas and in Gaza ruled by Hamas, many of which have relatives on the other side of the barbed wire yet these Arabs are held separate and refused the right to work, travel or act in any way as if living a normal life. They are kept as prisoners whose only crime was believing the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem when he swore that the Arab armies would destroy the Jews with little trouble and then they could simply return home and share in the wealth the Jews would leave behind. Only one thing went wrong, the Jews did not completely lose the war, they just did not secure all the lands which had been promised the Jews in every treaty. The time is near when the Israelis will finally demand the world deliver on their promises and this will include finding nations to take the to be refugees who desire to relocate, and that should be the end of this circus.

Did Trump Just Give Putin a Way Out of Syria?

 

The article by Mark Langfan for Arutz Sheva is a good read and has some interesting propositions. His optimism and suppositions would make the world a safer place if they came to fruition but perhaps we should scale back the ideas of future cooperation and settle for the possible over the preferable. Peace and secure and unchallenged borders throughout the Balkans would be wonderful but are not exactly possible as the spirits there are too unsettled and restless. Further, it is not likely that Putin would settle for just one-third of the Ukraine plus the Crimean Peninsula as he desires the weapons manufacturing capabilities in the central regions of the Ukraine and all the wheat fields to feed all of Russia just as Stalin had done. Putin would never allow his prize to become part of NATO. But the one interesting piece from the article was the exit policy which, with the world and their condemnation of Bashir al-Assad over the release of Sarin nerve agent on a civilian population, gives Putin the perfect excuse. His theory is Putin will use this incident to pull his support for al-Assad and then working with NATO, or with Trump to be more accurate, will place an acceptable, and presumably pliable, leader in Syria in return for the two naval bases and airfield and then everyone will be free to remove ISIS, the Islamic State, working in coordination. We hope at least this part of Mr. Langfan’s exercise in a proposed future in Syria and the rest of Europe, the Balkans and Ukraine will come to fruition. It almost appears that Mr. Langfan believes that Presidents Trump and Putin are cooperating in a pact of mutual endorsement and support, likely a misconception, but still appears to permeate his thinking.

 

Unfortunately, thus far President Putin appears to be stanchly defending Bashir al-Assad and placing the blame on the munitions kept presumably by the rebels, possibly ISIS, at the targeted location. That is not the actions of a man who is planning on deserting al-Assad to replace him with anyone, especially a Sunni. Russia is not about to alter their cozy relations with Iran either. Had Russia any plans on removing al-Assad and deserting their support for Iran, the delivery early this year of the S-300 anti-aircraft batteries would never have happened. Russia is firmly committed to the Shia cause and the projected plans by Iran to spread Shia Islam across the Middle East and eventually on to Northern Africa and beyond. What the Russian plans are, is quite a mystery but the Iranian plans are an easy read as it is all in their holy books under Jihad.

 

The Mullah of Iran intend on spreading Shia Islam to every corner of the globe, including Russia. Their plan is not to accomplish this by this year or even in the lifetime of the Supreme Leader nor the next Supreme Leader or necessarily the next or the next but eventually there will be one who does finish their destiny. The leaders of Iran are assured that their viewed destiny cannot be prevented because it was written in the Quran and Allah’s will can never be denied. Of course the Sunnis, such as Islamic State or the Royals in Saudi Arabia, also believe the same verses guarantee their eventual supremacy of the entire world. I know what some are saying, both sets of what some of you are saying. One group is claiming that they cannot both be correct and there is another group simply exclaiming for us to give them a break and are we really trying to push that crazy Islam intends to conquer the world canard? The latter groups will claim that nobody still believes they can honestly conquer the world and that the idea of conquering the world went out after the death of Alexander the Great, when Rome fell, with the end of the British Empire, or when the Soviet Union collapsed. Well, here are a few little clues which may answer a few doubts. First, we are not claiming anything new with the idea that, Islam will conquer the world because it is Allah’s will, that is in the Quran. The Quran can be confusing for many reasons, first of which is it is not arranged in chronological order, it is arranged for ease of children memorizing it starting young so it is in order from shortest to longest. For more information we wrote an introductory article a number of years back which we should update when we get a chance.

 

As far as nobody thinks they can conquer the world any more, allow us to mention a few other than our Islamic friends, allow us to introduce the Chinese in command of the mainland who have yet to surrender on the concept of a world ruled by their improved version of Communism with a touch of Capitalism, and there is Putin who was sold before he became a member of the KGB that Russia must rule everything. Also, there is our chubby friend Kim Jung Un who is just insane enough to still think he will be the one though he can be discounted due to lack of sanity and we are sure there is someone else somewhere who cannot let go of the megalomaniacal hope that they will one day rule the world, if not the universe. Just because the western world reached the conclusion that the world was not capable of being conquered and it was more profitable to engage in commerce does not mean that everyone else in every other part of the world also saw such as the only sane result and still believe the best way to attain world unity is not cooperation but by their singular conquest of the world or the complete domination of their philosophy, rules and religion. The world does not run under one philosophy or one set of understandings. That has been a somewhat difficult belief to have some in the western world to understand as they honestly believe that the rest of the world has or will adopt western culture and ideas as they honestly believe that it is superior. Surprise, that is also a form of conquest of the globe through a less violent means, by cultural dominance erasing all other cultures. One of the problems with this idea is that not all of the globe has electricity and many nations closely monitor all information and even music from coming within their borders. Some manage this through propaganda or religious edicts and strict enforcement.

 

What matters is that there really are bad people by western standards of Judeo-Christian morality. Don’t start rolling the eyes at the use of the worlds Judeo-Christian morality as that has been the dominating force in the western world which allowed for the scientific revolution and the progression to the separation of church and state which allowed for the technological progress of the last few centuries. That was not universally the case and as the western world made great progress and appeared to become dominant, the Islamic world crept into their shell and believed that returning to their original roots when they were dominant, the seventh century through eleventh century when they were on their way to conquering the world (see map below). Islam has been waiting for their opportunity to return to preeminence. The Saudi Arabians believed they could buy that future with their oil wealth along with the other Arabian Gulf States, the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), and have been buying the necessary weaponry over the years and have been supplying much of the arms and funding, through back channels for deniability, for the Islamic State, formerly ISIS. They were the money behind al-Qaeda, provided fifteen of the nineteen hijackers on 9/11, have assisted the Wahhabi sect of Islam which have their own designs on world conquest and have expended too many American and allied soldiers fighting their wars to keep them safe. Some concepts and beliefs die hard and Islam promise from Allah of ruling the world might just top the list.

 

Spread of Islam Across North Africa and into the Iberian Peninsula

The conclusion of this is that Putin has signed on with Iran and the Shiites for better or worse as the Sunnis betrayed Russia when they switched sides changing over to American arms and protections. The odds are Putin not only remembers the betrayal but that it weighs heavily on him and is a part of his reasoning of supporting Iran. He likely sees Saudi Arabia as the leader of the Sunnis and the main reason why he will not betray Iran and thus stand by Bashir al-Assad. As for was al-Assad responsible for the Sarin Gas chemical release, that will remain something which might be discovered in whatever ensuing investigation is conducted. That also could depend on who does the investigation. It is possible there will be multiple investigations with them being at odds with one another depending on which side conducts the investigation. Such is the state of our world and it could not be more dangerous.

When Normalcy Takes a Holiday

 

Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Monday called on Israel not to waste new opportunities for a peace agreement based on the “two-state solution”. Abbas’s comments came at a press conference in Brussels with European Union (EU) Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini. “Our meeting today was important to discuss the latest developments in international efforts to find the best way to reach a just and comprehensive peace between us and the Israelis in light of the intention of the U.S. administration under President Trump to work for peace. There were many contacts and meetings, and we are continuing discussions for the success of the American and international efforts, and I have assured President Trump that we are ready for a peace deal,” said Abbas, according to the PA-based WAFA news agency.

 

Mahmoud Abbas does a few things and he does them very well. He can dress in a suit where every part is properly positioned and every tie knot tied perfectly, the tie clasp is perfectly positioned as are the buttons fastened properly for the two or three button suit. The creases in his pants are crisp and the coat and shirt perfectly aligned and centered as if positioned by an engineer. The man can dress for success. Another thing he can do extremely well is smile, even when a smile is completely out of place, he smiles perfectly as a good smile means you are in control, happy and nothing in your world is out of place and most of all, you can trust a man with a smile, well, unless the smile is completely out of place as when at the ceremony to mourn and honor those lost in the Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Cacher memorial march in Paris, France in January 2015. Everybody has an expected somber look as they honor and mourn those murdered in two horrific terror attacks and following shootout capturing two of the terrorists all of which stole twenty lives and wounded, many seriously, another nineteen individuals. Somber appearances were the norm of the day, well, except for the man who does not understand that Islamists murdering innocents and wounding a near equal number all in cold blood with them either at their job or shopping for food for the weekend is an evil event and not something the world is supposed to simply accept and expect as the price of being infidel.

 

The reality for Mahmoud Abbas is that he deals with Israel where the world has accepted the murder of Israelis daily by Muslim terrorists because they are merely Jews who should expect that they be murdered by anyone desiring to do so. That has been the truth throughout both Europe and the MENA states (Middle East and North Africa) because, after all, they are Jews whose definition is they are interlopers in other people’s lands and have been the target of every civilization for as long as anybody can remember and just because they were given their own nation, imagine that, a Jew nation, they still should expect that their situation could not have changed, they should continue to understand that nobody cares when they are murdered. But Abbas believes that what applied to the Jews in Israel or elsewhere should apply just as equally to French citizens who mocked Muhammad and those shopping in a Jew supermarket because they too are infidel making them justified targets. Abbas is so used to his terrorists being accepted in their actions when they murder Israelis, or as he sees all Israelis, Jews, because the world has decided that Jews, even in Israel, are simply Jews and thus can be murdered by whomever feels the urge and why should anybody care now just because this is in Israel instead of outside Champagne or Toledo or Stuttgart by Crusaders or Inquisitors or by the local Caliph in order to settle disruptions in his district as these were common practices for centuries, for as long as anybody was able to remember, why should now be different. He thinks Jew, Christian, whatever, all infidel and thus their lives are equal to the Jews he has always murdered with the world’s approval, or at least their looking away. Why should these twenty infidel be different and this is a parade and there are news cameras from the world over, this is the reason for Abbas for the gathering, to parade before the world’s media and cameras and this is the reason for one to smile as if all is well and happy. That is why Mahmoud Abbas looks like a harpy amongst normal people in the picture from that gathering to mourn the losses from the terror attack targeting Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Cacher shown below.

When it comes to Israel and terrorism where Israel is the target, the truth is that normalcy takes a holiday. The world takes their historic position that it is only Jewish lives and thus completely understandable. This is true across the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and surprisingly also Asia, Africa, South America, Central America, Oceana and even more and more of North America where the United States and Canada had been the exceptions to this rule, but that is changing and not for the better. The initial changes are appearing as is usually the case, in academia and on the college and university campuses. This is made evident with the Israel Apartheid Week demonstrations, anti-Israel demonstrations, anti-Zionist speakers, and all kinds of attacks which start against Israel and then slowly have started to include Jews who are not sufficiently hostile against Israel, the Jewish State. If you find yourself saying the normative, “So what? They should oppose those crazy Zionists just like all good-thinking, progressive, liberal leftists,” then you have joined the silent anti-Semites, most of whom do not believe hating Israel and expecting Jews to join in that hate makes them anti-Semites. Well, here is the truth which you may not have stopped to reason through. Denying that the Jewish State should exist and only the Jewish State must meet overt demands and place itself in mortal danger and nowhere else, then you are an anti-Semite. Would you challenge an Indian student from Mumbai to protest against India’s war with Pakistan over who gets to control Kashmir? How about a Spanish student from Colorado, do they have to protest against Spain over the oppression of the Basque? Would you demand a Chinese student to protest China’s illegal conquest and occupation of Tibet? How about a Russian student because Russia occupies parts of Georgia; a Canadian for Canada’s oppression of the Inuit; a Turk for Turkey’s oppression of the Kurds; an Iranian for their oppression of the Kurds; an Iraqi for their oppression of the Kurds; a British subject for the British for their broken promises to the Jews, Kurds, Irish and countless others throughout their history of conquest and colonialism as well as the French, Spanish, Zulu, Mongols, Chinese, and Arabs for their conquests and colonialisms. If the initial concerns over Israeli evils seemed normative and all of these others simply brought forth more of a giggle than serious self-criticism, then you may be an irretrievable anti-Semite. Meanwhile, how about we take another look at Abbas when a camera occupies a near proximity, in the picture below.

 

Mahmoud Abbas as Almost Always Pictured

Mahmoud Abbas as Almost Always Pictured

 

There was more that Mahmoud Abbas had to say before his meetings with European Union Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini and United States President Trump with Administration Officials and Abbas also will bring along his entourage of fellow advocates. His further encouraging comments to the media included, “There were many contacts and meetings, and we are continuing discussions for the success of the American and international efforts, and I have assured President Trump that we are ready for a peace deal. We are committed to a just, comprehensive and permanent peace with our Israeli neighbors based on international and United Nations resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative that would end the Israeli occupation of the territory of the State of Palestine occupied since 1967 with East Jerusalem as its capital, which we want to keep as an open city for the followers of the three monotheistic religions (Jordan made the same promise in exactly the same words right before closing the entirety of the Old City of Jerusalem to all religions other than Islam and proceeded to destroy every synagogue and every Jewish cemetery within the areas of Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria they controlled).” Abbas continued speaking out against Israeli construction in Judea and Samaria with the warning that “continuation of settlement activities and expropriation of Palestinian land will lead to the one-state situation with an apartheid system.” But what does all this oft repeated gobbled-goop really mean in plain, easy to understand language, the kind of language that advocates of such terms deny because once the truth of their positions are known, they lose supporters because the truth comes out and their real intended end results become evident.

 

As we pointed out above, Jordan also made the promise that they would, we quote, “East Jerusalem as its capital, which we want to keep as an open city for the followers of the three monotheistic religions.” This is a bald faced deceit as they have no intention of doing so. Just as Jordan stated this claiming, honestly, that the Quran demands that they treat the other two Abrahamic religions with respect and would honor their traditional relation and requirements to their holy sites in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. What the Palestinians mean, just as the Jordanians before them, is that every last religious holy site of the other two Abrahamic religions, Judaism and Christianity, are actually Islamic holy sites and will be named as such. Just as Mahmoud Abbas has sworn to protect their holy sites on the Temple Mount (known to Muslims as the Haram esh-Sharif or in Arabic it is الحرم الشريف‎‎) from the Jews listing the Dome of the Rock, the al-Aqsa Mosque and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre as all as being Islamic holy sites. The video below depicts exactly how Mahmoud Abbas plans on permitting Jews to ever visit the Temple Mount and with his claim of the reason for the Christians to visit as being claimed by Islam, Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which should whisper loudly exactly the view and lack of respect that Abbas and his fellow Palestinians have for other religions and people.

 

 

Another video from this timeframe depicts the story of what was actually occurring and was behind the violence and led to these claims by Abbas which were actually a bravo and carry on as we love you and you will be rewarded by Allah, the Islamic deity. The following video also gives further evidence of the wonderful Israeli peace partner which the world claims would not have snow melt in his mouth. Of course they deny that he ever speaks with flames stoking violence using that same mouth as that would make a mockery of the “peace process” and the blame Israel and always Israel meme. Another thing you might want to notice, Mahmoud Abbas does not smile anywhere near as he does when meeting with Western leaders or standing before their cameras, but talking to his people he is expressive and in a completely different manner than most are used to seeing when there are news reports in America, Canada, Europe or virtually anywhere outside his own people. This is a sign to the Palestinian people, when he is smiling he is speaking lies while when he is speaking truthfully, his emotions show through. It is very easy to understand, smiling equals with telling lies while changing expressions usually means speaking the truth. Here is the news report from what many will tell you is a biased news service, the Christian Broadcast Network (CBN). Perhaps that is considered to be biased because they speak truths nobody wants to admit, you decide.

 

 

Let’s take a look at another person who you might initially not believe would support Israel. The following is about a Canadian human rights activist born in Samaria and raised in Saudi Arabia. Sandra Solomon has received death threats for her work against the spread of radical Islam in Canada and her pro-Israel message. “I am Palestinian, but I stand with Israel,” Solomon said at the counter-demonstration. “We are the Arabs. We occupy the land of the Jews. This (is) Jewish land. It’s going to be there for ever and ever. I used to be a Muslim. They taught me to hate Israel and the Jewish people. There is no Palestine. It’s a lie. They are using Palestine just to kill the Jewish people. Just to hate the Jews. They teach me to ‘purify al-Aqsa mosque from the filthy Jews’. Palestinians are liars.”

 

How about some of what a Bedouin raised in the village of Kabiya, named after his family. His name is Muhammad Kabiya, the last name not much of a surprise, but he is a recently demobilized IDF soldier and has decided to join the fight on behalf of Israel and to do so outside of Israel starting in the United States and Canada. With any fortune, he will have sufficient success and feel a sense of accomplishment and continue on to the more difficult challenge of Europe, we would love to find that Europe is not a lost cause. He had the following to say to Israel Channel 10, “People don’t know anything about what goes on here. I’m defending the image of the state that they are trying to destroy. When I arrived for an address, ‘Israel Apartheid Week’ had just started. I confronted Jewish students who claimed that Zionism is racism. I told them that they should be embarrassed. I, Muhammad, an Israeli-Arab, was the one who needed to go out and confront anti-Israel Jews. It drove them nuts.”
“On the first day (of the speaking tour) a Jewish student gave me a flyer for an address which claimed ‘Zionism is racism’,” said Kabiya. “I told him ‘you should be ashamed of yourself’, you don’t need to be working with groups whose goal is to spread hatred and lies against the State of Israel, against your state, the state of the Jews – and I’m telling you that as an Israeli Arab.”

There is more Muhammad Kabiya had to say which can be read here, along with the entirety from Sandra Solomon, our Canadian human rights activist born in Samaria and raised in Saudi Arabia. More information on Sandra Solomon and her efforts can be read here. This tells of her efforts during the recent AIPAC Convention in Washington D.C. recently.

 

Probably the most important things one need remember from this article are the people who defend Israel will sometimes amaze you. In this article alone we have an Arab Bedouin who resides in Israel in his family’s hometown, a hometown named after his family itself and a community which fought with the Israelis during the 1948 war where the surrounding six Arab nations, including a division of Bedouins as part of the Jordanian Army, invaded with the intent of slaughtering every single Jew, and his family history includes a dedication to the State of Israel which would be extremely admirable of any family in Israel. We also had a former Muslim who was born in Samaria and raised in Saudi Arabia who as a Palestinian admits that there is no such entity as a Palestinian and that the claimed existence that there once was a Palestinian nation is a lie and is used in order to murder Jews and deny Israeli existence. The one other item to remember is that Mahmoud Abbas smiles when he lies and actually shows a variety of emotions when speaking truthfully to his people. Abbas adds to the incitement and advocates violence against Israelis, Jews in particular. Further, try and remember that picture of Abbas from the beginning of the memorial procession for Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Cacher in Paris, France and how he muscled himself to the front despite not being granted such a place such that he would be right in front of the cameras. He targeted and attained a relatively central location and despite being amongst a sea of somber faces on people seriously considering the reason they had gathered while Mahmoud Abbas had a completely separate reason for his attendance which had absolutely nothing to do with honoring the deceased people from two heinous terror attacks, he was there to show he is an upbeat and amiable person who one can trust and like and that he should be accepted as an honest and decent person. This is what a smile would normally mean; here is an honest and friendly person. In this instance, that harpy-like smirk, that leering grin is completely wrong and insulting to the people whose lives were snuffed-out by Islamist terror violence and another nineteen seriously injured stating that my image and need to be seen smiling no matter the reality around me is the most important thing in the world. I must be seen smiling in front of Western cameras trumps the memory of those murdered violently and is more important that the recovery of the near twenty people hospitalized, some bordering on death and one who did succumb in the next couple of days, but Abbas smiles on as there are cameras recording him, Western cameras.
