State Department Deep State Aiding Palestinian Terrorist Payments

 

Nobody at the State Department nor those from the White House will accept the allegation that they are aiding the payment of Palestinian terrorists and their families. They will talk about the humanitarian crisis and their aid being restricted for feeding, housing and other essential aid usage by the Palestinian Authority. This was directly contradicted by a letter sent by nine Democratic members of the House of Representatives’ Foreign Affairs Committee’s subcommittee on the Middle East which they sent to President Trump. Their complaint began with the fact that, “all U.S. assistance, including lifesaving humanitarian aid, has been frozen since January 2018.” Their insistence continued with the argument, “We are deeply concerned that there seems to be no information available to Members of Congress as to the nature, scope, or duration of this assistance review. We support the need for oversight of our assistance programs…. However, it is unnecessary to withhold funding while conducting this review.” After lamenting the reported humanitarian crisis in Gaza, something no amount of aid money or provisions could possibly help as all aid goes straight to Hamas or to Hamas via UNRWA, they got to the meat of their complaint with, “We have heard from many of our non-governmental organization implementing partners…who will be forced to shut down in the coming weeks if funding is not released.” Their letter demanding the White House explain their actions and lack of funding ending with, “The Committee has previously requested information in writing…about the West Bank and Gaza assistance review, and has not received detailed information in response. Therefore, we request an update as to the current status of the review…and a timeline for the conclusion of the review. We also urge the immediate release of US bilateral assistance to the West Bank and Gaza.”

 

Now how about we translate their stated positions into normal language and strip away the equivocations and speak straightly. These concerned Representatives appeared largely to be concerned about aid going to Gaza. In theory, there should not be any aid from the United States going to Gaza under any legal context, as Gaza is a terrorist entity. Gaza is ruled by Hamas, a terrorist group by almost all definitions, and they are backed by Islamic Jihad who are in the running to be as bad if not worse than Hamas. These Representatives know very well that every dollar of aid which eaches Gaza will be spent on weapons of war and infiltration tunnels into Israel for the exclusive purpose of murdering Israeli civilians and kidnapping some to hold for ransom. Hamas and Islamic Jihad have stated this as one of their main goals for the future. These Democrat Representatives also are aware that currently there is a one sided attack still being engaged by these terrorist entities in Gaza flying incendiary kites and balloons into Israel despite a supposed ceasefire agreement arranged through Egypt with American support. Finally, they are completely aware that Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas has repeatedly insisted that the blood money for murdering Jews will continue to be paid to terrorists and their families even if it takes every last penny of aid money and that these payments are to be made as the first and foremost payments of the government before even the salaries of government workers and security forces (the PA army).

Basically, these nine Democrat Representatives who are presumably specialists on the entire situation in the Middle East are most concerned that the terrorists who desire or have murdered Jews in Israel, placing sending aid money to Hamas and the PA to pay for more terrorism as the their top priorities, placing these funds at the top of their concerns over anything else occurring in the Middle East. Funding terrorism against Israel comes before assisting the American allies who were the tip of the spear which brought down the Islamic State, the Kurds, or relieving the plight of Syrian refugees in camps along the Jordanian and Turkish borders with Syria, and above aiding the refugees from the ethnic cleansing in Myanmar crammed into refugee camps in Bangladesh. One could look at the Middle East and decide that it is a continental crisis factory where Israel is possibly the most stable area in its entirety. We can only suspect the worst concerning these representatives and their ulterior motives.

 

Further, this coming on the heels of the announced releasing of dozens of millions of dollars to the Palestinian Authority’s preventive security forces only makes the entirety of this all the more suspicious. The PA Security Forces have committed acts of terror shooting at and killing Israeli civilians, though they are usually acquitted of any charges for political reasons. PA Security Forces have opened fire at IDF soldiers and paid a high price in return. The list of PA Security Force personnel killing and attacking Israelis is rather extensive. What might be shocking is that these PA Security Force personnel who have murdered Israelis now receive close to or more than their regular salary for their act of terrorism and get these funds for as long as the PA has any funds to spend. The blood money paid under the guise of family aid for the martyrs might be the only funds which are actually paid out before Mahmoud Abbas further enriches himself and his family. Terrorists have admitted to carrying out terror acts seeking to be killed so their family would get funds and be better off. If we have knowledge of these incidents, then you know that members of Congress know all about them as well, which leads to our questioning the real motives of these representatives in demanding that funding be released and their specifying that it be made especially for Gaza and the PA Security Forces. In both cases, they are explicitly requesting that terrorists receive American aid monies. There are reasons that President Trump has been reviewing aid to the PA, and it is not to cause people to suffer, the PA and Hamas do that well enough with or without American tax money.

 

Still, it is worrying that the State Department can simply send funds under the guise that there are emergencies and they have received pleas from the PA for relief and thus released these funds. It appears that this was accomplished without any permission from the White House and definitely without the President giving any authorization. It would be interesting to have the order for this release of funds traced up the structural charts of the State Department and find out exactly who and in what position this order originated. If it was anybody other than Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, then somebody should be stood before Secretary of State Pompeo and made to give the reasons and from where they believed they had the authority for releasing these funds. Their story had better be very convincing or they should be fired. But that is the problem, Civil Service employees are next to impossible to fire. The only thing more difficult in being rid of than an employee in the United States government are cockroaches, especially those residing within the core of a nuclear power plant. This is one of the deepest problems facing the United States, a virtual army of bureaucrats answerable to nobody, overseen seldom and often without a direct chain of command, incapable of being removed from employment except in rare cases of extreme malfeasance, able to destroy people and even the policies of the President of the United States. Once at a sufficiently high level, they run their own little fiefdom, the only form of employee where if it takes five of them to do the job, easily handled by one employee in the real world, yet all five get commendations (it usually takes eight to ten or more) and yet their numbers continue to grow making them even less manageable and given even less guidance or oversight. Should any President make a policy that for every promotion given in any department not directly commanding soldiers or direct law enforcement field agents, two government workers would need to be terminated, providing they were elected to two terms, the problem might be halved.

The Secret of Israel

 

Israel seems to be a secret to the remainder of the world. That becomes obvious when you listen to the idiotic ideas coming from so many when referring what they believe is Israel. We have read of and heard some claiming that Israel wants to establish a “Greater Israel” by expanding her borders. We have covered this claim before explaining that the term “Greater Israel” simply refers to the times of Kings David and Solomon. They will infer that Israel is supremacist, started the conflict and numerous other ways of saying that Israel is the bully. Actually, the Ottomans started it when they joined with the Austrian-Hungarian Empire and Germany against the Allied Powers during World War I. Just for the record, they lost and the world decided to end these empires which were considered the aggressors, thus the Austrian-Hungarian Empire was divided up and the Balkan nations were born along with the rest of Eastern Europe, Germany found their borders slimmed at the edges and the Ottoman Empire was carved up with the separate parts placed into Mandates with the presumed intention of making them into little democracies with some effort. Another large idea of the age was the reestablishing of originalist nations returning areas to their original rulers such as Finland, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Poland, Hungary, Latvia and Lithuania which dotted the new Eastern Europe. The Ottoman Empire was carved up making the nations making up the MENA nations of the Middle East and North Africa (see map below). One of those Mandates established the ancient homeland of the Jewish People, Israel, and an Arab state of Transjordan (later simply Jordan) which was designated the homeland for the Arab Palestinians. Another pair established was Lebanon and Syria where Lebanon was supposed to have been Christian while Syria was supposed to be Arab Syrians in their historic lands.

Initially, the Arabs residing in all four nations claimed they were Syrians. The French Mandate, which included Syria and Lebanon, claimed to be simply all part of Syria while the British Mandate, which included Israel and Jordan, claimed to be in southern region of Greater Syria. The idea was that they would take all of the area and make their Arab state of Greater Syria. The Arabs believed that all the lands which had been the Ottoman Empire were to remain under Arab and Muslim control. They refused to recognize the Mandates established by the various treaties including the San Remo Conference, the Treaty of Sèvres amongst others. That has been the main problem which has led to the difficulties between Israel and her Arab neighbors which continue into our daily news. Lebanon is no longer a Christian nation, simply a Muslim nation where the Christians are permitted to remain as long as they behave. The Islamic name for such is called a Dhimmi, a form of second-class citizenry. For intents and purposes, and in reality, Hezballah is the current ruling power in Lebanon. That means that Iran has direct control over Lebanon, the Hezballah terrorist military and the Lebanese Army which includes quite an amount of United States military weaponry including Abrams main battle tanks.

 

Back to what it is Israel honestly wants from the rest of the world. This includes the Muslim nations, the United States, the Europeans, the British, the Russians, the Chinese and everybody else. It is actually the thing that the Jewish People have prayed to have for the past two-thousand-plus years. We would like our little plot of land promised to Abraham which extends from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, from the Egyptian Border north to, originally the Litani River (see map below), but we will be just fine with the Blue Line as already inspected and approved by the United Nations after the Israeli withdrawal from Southern Lebanon in 2000. Any people within this region who desire relocating voluntarily, we will give them generous assistance. Those who prefer to remain will need to understand that they will be residing under the laws of the State of Israel. Any terrorist act will result in their being deported and not permitted to return. After this has been settled and we are securely within our border, then please just allow us to tend to our needs and as long as we are left in peace, we will leave the remainder of the world in peace. There will be advantages for the world should this be accomplished. Any medical, technical, agricultural or other discoveries or inventions performed in Israel will be shared with the rest of the world. Israel will be able to make greater strides when we no longer are required to prepare for a war to start at any moment.

 

Twelve Tribes of Israel and the Original Borders for Israel

Twelve Tribes of Israel and the Original Borders for Israel

 

As far as what will be occurring within our borders, that is a simple matter. We will have a large segment of the Jews praying to Hashem while also working to build a better future. We will likely rebuild the Temple making the Third Temple, and hopefully final Temple, a reality and do so with the minimal upset to other religions to the greatest of our ability. Those fearing that this means we will reengage in animal sacrifice, allow us to give a modicum of relief and peace of mind. The first Chief Rabbi of Israel, Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak HaCohen Kook, who some claim believed that animal offerings will not be reinstituted when the Third Temple is rebuilt, thought that only grain and vegetable sacrifices would be reinstituted. His commentary on the Siddur on the sentence at the end of Shemoneh Esrei, “Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant to Hashem as in the days of old and as in the ancient years,” Rav Kook wrote, “In the future, the abundance of knowledge will spread to and penetrate even animals…and the “sacrifices” which will then be from Grain, will be as pleasing to G-d as in days of old (when there were animal offerings).”* This would limit the Third Temple to only vegetarian offerings.

 

Israel will not make demands on other nations and instead will do as we are bid by our Torah, to lead lives worthy and honoring Hashem and then our lives will not want for anything. Judaism has a unique feature not found in the other two Abrahamic faiths in that we do not proselytize nor do we insist that others must follow out religion or even believe in Hashem. We simply request that we be permitted to follow our religion and be left to our own ways within our borders and, in return, we will share any great bounty or discoveries we find with the world. In Judaism we are instructed only to tell those who come and inquire about Judaism and not to press any to convert and even to ask those who request to convert why they would want to do so. There are numerous rules and rituals which are required of those following strict Judaism which is why we question why one would desire to take on these potential burdens in their lives when there is no pressing requirement for them to do so. In Judaism, Hashem loves the Jewish People and also loves all people for we are all His children and thus all receive his love. The Jews, it is often stated, believe they are special as the Chosen People. Well, yes, in a warped way. One need understand that being the Chosen People is defined in two ways, the first is the well-known that Hashem chose the Jews, or at least Abraham, Isaack, and Jacob plus likely Moses. Remember, Hashem also chose Noah and gave him the Noahic Code, the Seven Laws for a civilized society. The other side of being the Chosen People is the Jewish People have chosen to follow the Laws given us at Mount Sinai through Moses and written in the Torah which demand of us performing six-hundred-thirteen Mitzvot. (Here is a list drawn up by Chabad for comparison and a second opinion.) So the Chosen People works in both directions and does not mean the Jews are special other than they have agreed upon the laws and customs they are to observe, for which we get to live an orderly life and no special compensation beyond what every other individual receives from Hashem for living a good and honest life.

 

Definitive Map of Israel

 

Israel, much like Judaism, desires only to be permitted to live within our borders as described above or as shown in the map above. Nothing would make us happier than to be allowed to tend to our own business within the ancient lands of our forefathers. Yet there are those who insist that the Jews never resided in this region despite the historical evidence to the contrary. Of course, some of those making these statements claim that the history of mankind, or at least the only history that matters, started approximately fourteen-hundred years ago with the revelation of the Quran to Mohammad in Mecca and finishing in Medina. The history of the Jewish People dates back slightly more distant with Kings David and Solomon residing over three-thousand years ago and Abraham almost a thousand years before that. That is a very long time ago, but that was the beginning and was where much of what is the beginnings of the basis of the democratic institutions and the Judeo-Christian ethics upon which much of European and American history is based and on which many other cultures base their beliefs. Israel, under Kings David and Solomon attempted to gain empire, as that was the way of the world three-thousand years past. That ended poorly soon after King Solomon when the kingdoms split into a northern and a southern kingdom and the added lands of empire revolted successfully gaining their independence only to be swallowed by the Assyrians and then the Babylonians. The Northern Kingdom fell to Assyria and then the Southern Kingdom, Judah, fell to the Babylonians. The existence of the Northern Kingdom is somewhat a mystery as they are referred to as the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel though some are claiming to be returning in these modern times of the reestablishing of Israel. The Jews, based on the Kingdom of Judah, once conquered by Babylon were prophesized to have to spend four-hundred-thirty years in exile but when Cyrus the Great and Persia conquered Babylon, he freed the Jews to return and build their Temple anew and were only required to pay a tax to Persia in return. The Jews built their Second Temple and were doing quite nicely and then Alexander the Great and his Greeks arrived. The Jews had only been in Babylon for seventy years and had they lived according to the Torah and the laws of Hashem, then they would have lived happily ever after. The Jews failed at living the good and decent life and that is why they were returned into exile and the Diaspora, but more on that later.

 

The Greeks conquered Judea in 322 BCE and except for a few short spans where foreign rule was thrown off, remained conquered through the Roman Empire, the Caliphate, Crusades, Ottomans and finally the British until May 14, 1948. This is where things get interesting. Prophesy has lost some of its wonder in the modern era, but the reestablishing of Israel should put a little polish and a new shine on ancient prophesy. These prophesies provided the core of the Jewish People’s hopes for over two-thousand years along with the knowledge that Hashem promised that we would be returned to our homelands miraculously and our dispersal and exile would end. The promise gave a date according to Ezekiel who said the Jews were to be punished for 430 years because they had turned away from Hashem. This was to become the Babylonian exile. The Persians under Cyrus the Great defeated the Babylonians, as mentioned above, and freed their Jewish captives about 70 years after Judah lost independence to Babylon. This left 360 years which the Jews would require a second exile to fulfill as one must pay Hashem when one strays. In Leviticus 26:18, Leviticus 26:21, Leviticus 26:24 and Leviticus 26:28 the Torah spells things out quite clearly, should the Jews not fully repent their sins they would be punished increased by a factor of seven. Since most of the Jews freed from Babylon decided to live in the Persian society and adopted pagan ways, which is not exactly repenting, their remaining 360 years were multiplied by seven meaning their time in the Diaspora or under foreign occupation became 2,520 years on the original lunar Jewish calendar which translates to 2,484 years. Count from 536 BCE forward 2,484 years and you arrive at 1948. Further, Isaiah’s prophecy Chapter 66:8 states: “Who has heard of a thing like this? Who has seen things like these? Will a land be brought forth with labor pains in one day? Or will a nation be born at one time? For Zion has come into labor pains as well as given birth to her sons.” Israel was established exactly as Isaiah prophesized in a single day. Who said prophesy was dead, certainly not us.

 

We took a long time and the ingathering prophesized in the story of the Dry Bones. That was the prophesy from Ezekiel 37:1-14 telling of the restoration of the Jewish People using the parable of the Valley of Dry Bones. The prophesy tells of the ingathering of the Jewish People being brought from the four corners and renewed. The prophesy also speaks of taking tribes of Israel (Joseph) and the tribe of Judah and make them one foretelling that the House of Israel will be a united house once more as it is. The verse goes on to say that being observant and true to the Mitzvahs, the Commandments, will be made easy for the people in Israel, something we can attest to as this has been our case as religion has come upon our souls and persons and following the Commandments of Torah have been placed within reach. Of course, not all are finding returning to their former religious ways as easy as one might hope. The rate at which this would come about once the nation was reestablished was made to appear slow as the bones took time to gather, gain sinew, muscle, skin, and eventually the return of their soul, their religious zeal. This means that Israel is still a work in progress but the love of her people will eventually overcome all obstacles.

 

That brings up to this past week. Very early Thursday morning, Iran fired approximately twenty rockets towards Israel aimed at the Golan Heights. The Israelis residing in the region were awakened and told to take shelter which they were kept secured within for a few hours. These rockets largely fell short of their mark and most of the remainder was intercepted by the Iron Dome systems guarding the region. Despite the entire evening and night previous to the launch having been completely peaceful and quiet, the IDF was tipped to the coming attack when hearing Syrian broadcasts claiming the Israeli forces had attacked a series of positions held by Hezballah within Syria. Despite not having left their positions in the Golan, the IDF knew from experience that this was the signal for “retribution” by the Arab forces, actually in this case, the forces were Iranian. There would be an Israeli attack, but it came subsequent to the launching of multiple, at least twenty, rockets at Israel by Iranian Quds Force (videos below) and Israel retaliated and struck a large area and numerous Iranian and Hezballah bases and munition stockpiles (see map below). There will be claims that the Israeli response, wait for it, was “disproportional” to the Iranian attack launched at Israel. Since when has combat become a proportional enterprise? The entire reason for striking back after the Iranian Quds Force attack is to dissuade any future attacks by making the cost too steep. You do not prevent an aggressor from attacking you by trading them blow for blow, you strike them as hard as you feel is necessary, and if they try such again, this was the third Iranian attack in several weeks, then you make the cost spiral even higher. When a bully picks a fight and the targeted youth gains the upper hand, they do not just allow the bully to walk away without further harm, they bloody the nose of the bully and perhaps a few extra punches for good measure making any future attack out of the question. Iran is the bully in the Middle East along with their terror proxies Hamas, Hezballah, Islamic Jihad and their foreign IRGC forces who practice terrorism throughout the globe as the Ayatollahs desire. Hamas is currently, along with Islamic Jihad, making a spectacle on the Gaza border which is supposed to climax over this weekend and on through Monday in celebration of Nakba Day, the day that six Arab armies attacked the newly declared state of Israel and proceeded to fail to destroy all of Israel and had to settle for winning Gaza and areas of Judea and Samaria which Jordan annexed illegally and called the West Bank. These were and are lands which the League of Nations and United Nations, under Article 80 of the U.N. Charter, promised and guaranteed to be an integral part of Israel. They are also hoping that their month plus rioting and general mayhem would prod the United States into postponing the opening of their Jerusalem Embassy. They obviously have not yet understood President Trump and the changes which came with his taking office.

There will probably also be great amounts of attempted disruption coming from the Palestinian Authority which they will launch from Eastern Jerusalem. This will be an unofficial protest, but there has not been a Nakba day which was not also made into a Day of Rage since the first intifada was launched back in the 1980’s. We are fairly sure that part of the reasoning behind the Iranian rocket attack was also to place pressure on the United States to not relocate their embassy. We can only hope that the response they suffered in response to their rocket launches will be sufficient to deter their future thoughts for such misadventures. We simply want to live within our borders in peace and security and in return will share our discoveries with any in the world finding them advantageous. We do not want a war but as has been proven in the past, we will fight if one is foist upon us. We surrendered land to Egypt for peace and made peace with Jordan. We withdrew from Lebanon and Gaza with hopes for peace and received terrorists waging wars in return. Now much of the world demands we give away land overlooking the heart of the nation to the Palestinian Arabs who are ruled by the PLO, a recognized terrorist organization, and the world is aghast that we do not wish to commit suicide. Next we will have the United Nations demanding from the General Assembly for Israel to answer for these attacks on Syria despite their knowing full well Israel was attacked first. But it does not matter that Israel was attacked first, what matters is the Jews are defending themselves for the first time as an independent nation in over two-thousand years. It will take the world a little getting used to but they had best get used to it faster, please. We will not suffer to be attacked and just sit back and plead that everyone stop being mean to us, we will act like what we are, a proud and independent nations fully capable of fighting to protect ourselves. Strike at us and we will respond, that is the reality. Israel is a nation and a member of the United Nations which means we have the same rights as every other nation and we will protect ourselves and our rights. If we are left in peace, then all will be peace, but if we are attacked, then we will return violence with violence of our own, that is just as much a promise as is our promise for peace.

This slant that is anti-Zionist, anti-Israel and anti-Semitic is even demonstrated in the blurb used to describe new articles as is quite evident with this news summary I received in my e-mail notices in one of my News Briefs, especially when the actual events are compared to the one sentence slight against the Israeli police and their actions seen below with title and their reference included.

 

“Israel police enter Islam holy place
Israeli police entered one of Islam’s holiest places — annexed east Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa mosque — on Sunday to tackle suspected Palestinian rioters, police said. Israel routinely imposes age restrictions on Muslim worshippers. (original report from AFP) ”

 

The reason I have a differing opinion and am fully aware of the slanting is because this was one story from a week worth of coverage in local news of the events on the Temple Mount. The events described so dripping with such enmity was because the reality was there had been an escalating series of events planned ahead of the Jewish commemoration of the destruction of the First and Second Temples which is observed on the ninth of the Jewish month of Av except as that fell on the Sabbath the observance was postponed to the tenth which was Sunday. The intent was two-fold, first was to deny Jews access to visit the place of the Temples’ destructions and second was to attempt to hurt or worse any of the security police which has become a Temple Mount regularity which has taken an even more violent turn as time has passed, as have other attacks such as the rock attacks, where the rocks have increased in size and lethality, on motorists which has spread to some of the Arab towns within the Green Line such as the Galilee. The particular incident the News Brief and corresponding article referred to took place early Sunday morning where the police were assaulted with rocks, bricks, cement blocks, boards and fireworks which have often been modified in such a manner so as to cause injuries plus this Sunday were accompanied by throwing flammable liquids on the officers before losing pyrotechnic fireworks with intent of lighting the officers on fire. The assailants had stocked the al-Aqsa Mosque, the presumed holy site of great reverence, with their projectiles and other weapons and had used rope and other devices to force the doors open allowing them access to their provisions and preventing the officers from simply closing them off in the Mosque in order to terminate the assaults. This was the reason the police entered the Mosque as they sought to free the doors and lock their assailants inside and reduce the danger to the officers as they are not permitted to arrest these youths except in the most egregious of instances. A couple of the officers were evacuated to Hadassah Medical Center for medical treatment while the others were treated by paramedics on the scene.

 

Israel Police issued the following a statement, “The police forces acted with skill and professionalism, showing determination and courage under a shower of rocks, fireworks and iron bars. As they began to remove the barriers placed at the entrance to the mosque, masked men continued to shoot fireworks at police, injuring several of them. In light of the severe confrontation and the escalating actions of the rioters and with the aim of preventing further injury to police… forces entered a number of meters inside and closed the doors to the mosque with the rioters inside, restoring order.” (See pictures of condition inside the holy site held precious by Islamic faith found when Temple Mount Security Police were forced to enter the immediate first few meters of the al-Aqsa Mosque to secure doors to end riot. This is how this mosque has been denigrated into an armory for assaults on Police and Jews entering the Temple Mount pictures c/o Arutz Sheva article titled Muslim Rioters Attack Israeli Police on Temple Mount)

There have been reported calls in the Palestinian official media calling for the taking back of the Temple Mount from the Jews who have no historical reason to visit the area as there has never been a Jewish Temple or other holy site ever on the grounds. The most recent claims have explained that the Arab society was in Jerusalem for thousands of years before the Jews arrived and the Jews came to steal the wealth of the Arab society and to steal their holy areas and deny the Arabs their rightful lands. These exhortations almost always include calls for taking back the area through violent confrontations as it is known that when the Arab youths riot that the Temple Mount will more often than not be closed initially to Jewish visitation and that only if such does not end the confrontations within a few days, even up to a week, that the Israeli authorities allow the restriction of males under age 40 from accessing the al-Aqsa and other areas on the Temple Mount. Such bans rarely last more than a few days and afterwards the level of the violence is reduced but builds back to levels dangerous to the lives of the Police within a short period. That is the unreported cycle of violence.

 

The other non-news is the way Jewish visitors to the Temple Mount are treated both by the Muslims and the Police under orders from the Jordanian Waqf which was left in control of the Muslim holy sites and has expanded their jurisdiction to the entirety of the Temple Mount over time and directly due to feckless and timidity of Israeli leadership in the Knesset and the higher ranks of the Police and IDF responsible for keeping order both on the Temple Mount and throughout Arab neighborhoods and surrounding areas. This tactic of non-confrontation has had the exact opposite affect than intended and has only served to embolden the Arabs and has not calmed the European seething anger looking for Israeli, Jewish, transgressions over which to breathe their fire and accuse once more Israel of the accursed crime of self-defense, the one crime Israel’s defenders are never to be permitted. So Israel does the only honorable thing they are permitted by the NGO busybodies, the European political sharks seeking fame and glory on Israel’s grave, the United Nations human rights abusers who sit in judgement of the human rights offenders imagined in Israel to hide their own transgressions and whoever else desires to join the feeding frenzy. If ever a better trap was fashioned, a restive revolution ungovernable by its own governance and set beyond the jurisdictions of the actual government by those who will to destroy the Jewish State by any means at their disposal that continued and will continue unabated until somebody takes the helm in this madhouse of a nation slowly committing suicide because everybody is too worried about the opinions of the world and thus afraid to take responsibility and act to govern instead of run from every confrontation that seeks to destroy their nation all to please the unpleasable.

 

What makes this all the more confusing is that there seems to be no reason beyond the decision that the world had made a terrible blunder allowing the Jews back their ancestral homelands during the treaties and restructuring of half of Europe and much of the Middle East and North Africa after World War I. Many claim that the powers who agreed at San Remo now desired to renege on their promises. But perhaps there is another reason, a reason more esoteric. Perhaps the reason is the same reason that the Jews have been hunted and sought out for destruction in the ancient eras and that is in order to prove that Hashem does not exist for if the Jews were to disappear then the covenant would be broken and thus Hashem’s word would have been made irrelevant and thus make way once again for all gods to be made by man and thus controlled by man. Initially that was the reason for permitting the Jews to return to their lands as it was promised that the land would spit out and refuse harvest to all its conquerors and await the return of the Jews before once again producing a bountiful harvest. The brilliant idea was to give the Jews their ancestral wastelands which none had turned profitable for over two thousand years. The lands refused to produce for Rome, for the Ottomans, for the British and for all the others inbetween so the solution was to have the Jews return and the land to fail them as well and prove there was no existence known as Hashem to those silly Jews who refuse to even call Him by His real name. So they gave the wastelands that had scorned all who resided within and even refused Allah when his believers attempted to use Jerusalem as a place for gathering but not to honor it as their capital choosing instead the climes of Damascus. There was a slight problem, a miscalculation, a refusal to consider the impossible; what if the lands of Israel began to produce and proved fertile for the Jews proving Hashem and His every promise. Did they not know that Torah predicted the return after an unbelievable and unprecedented exile not survivable by any other peoples? Was not this exile predicted and the return as well? Well, now that the land is providing its bounty and the Jews and Israel do flourish those who had made their designs on its failure must find a new manner of taking this bountiful land and making it produce for them. It will not and cannot as it is promised to only one. They had two millennia to find the answer and make Israel bloom and the only workable solution was to allow the return of the Jews and this had infuriated those who refuse to believe. So they hamstring Israel at every turn and use tricks and pressures to make life unbearable and yet the land and the people flourish. What they have refused to see and bear witness is that the Arabs who live amongst the Jews do too flourish in proportion to their willingness to live peaceably. Perhaps the rest of the world would benefit if they too lived and existed at peace with Israel rather than in perpetual confrontation. For one moment just sit back and wonder at what miracles of medicine, software, agriculture and of every other discipline could be produced if only Israel were not forced to fight against the evil desires of the rest of the world. Imagine the gifts if only Israel were left in peace to work towards the betterment of all people. As John Lenin stated, ‘Imagine,’ imagine Israel completely dedicated to inventiveness and not half her efforts simply to keep the peace and be at peace. Of course John Lenin wished for us to dream of a socialist utopia proven unworkable by all who have tried except for one, Henry David Thoreau, but he had his own Walden Pond and its benefactor who could afford such dreams, nations cannot, just as this world could have their Walden Pond except it would be named Israel.
