The International Ploy to Destroy Israel

 

The Arabs generally and the Palestinian Arabs particularly will never give-up on their dreams to destroy Israel. The history of this is something which we have spoken of before and will not repeat the litany of pogroms, riots, wars and propaganda thrown at this obsession since the start of the return of Zionist Jews over a century and a half, from the 1850’s to the modern era. The cost in lives and treasure to both sides is incalculable. What we wish to discuss here is the latest pathway, the new strategy, which has been employed largely by Mahmoud Abbas over the last decade and a half and now more generally by Palestinian Authority (PA) officials as well as a smattering of others. The most recent use came from Palestinian Authority official in charge of foreign affairs, Riyad al-Maliki. The tactic is referred to as internationalizing the problem and it is only natural that the root of the problem and the cause for it remaining unsolved would be pressing for another route to futility. The one secret which is seldom admitted in English, but spoken of quite freely in Arabic, is that any solution which allows for even the smallest remnant of Israel as a Jewish State remains, the Arabs will refuse to end their working to destroy that entity. The sole acceptable final solution is a form of the Final Solution which some have claimed was introduced in the Wannsee Conference by the Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini who spent World War II working with the Nazis and mixing amongst the elite in Berlin. This has been carried down through the interceding time by his protégés Yassir Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas. Obviously, this illness is contagious as the entirety of the Arab and much of the Muslim worlds are thoroughly infected and the contagion is sweeping through Europe once more with the seeds already sprouting in the United States. We have already witnessed this disease of the mind and heart take command of a conference in Durban, South Africa in 2001 at the World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance.

Further breakouts of this disease have taken the form of Zionism equals racism which was passed by the United Nations General Assembly in their Resolution 3379, adopted on November 10, 1975 by a vote of 72 to 35 with 32 abstentions, which actually stated that the United Nations General Assembly has “determine[d] that Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination.” It took sixteen years before the United Nations revoked their Zionism is racism manifesto in United Nations General Assembly Resolution 46/86 which read as follows, “The General Assembly Decides to revoke the determination contained in its resolution 3379 (XXX) of 10 November 1975.” That was quite a bit less lengthy than the original which referred to Zionism at least three times in expounding on it as being every form of racism. Well we guess that apologies are often less full of bluster and considered appropriate opprobrium as embarrassment is best stated as one is moving past as rapidly as they are able. It would be difficult to be more curt than that removal of a stain which had been worn by most in that world body with pride and in many a way is still worn with prideful abandon to this day.

 

Meanwhile, PA official in charge of foreign affairs, Riyad al-Maliki speaking at the MED Dialogues conference in Rome insisted, “The Palestinians are still waiting for the international community to try to resolve the Palestinian problem that has been created by the international community.” With this, he continued blaming the international community with the foundation of Israel in 1948. Quoting further protestations, he continued, “Unfortunately, none of you is taking serious, credible and responsible steps to solve the problem.” Then turning to defame both President Trump and his entire administration, Riyad al-Maliki added, “which has really sided with Israel, taken the wrong side of history, of justice.” Wrong side of justice, really? But he was far from finished, as he stated further, “If the Americans are not willing to do anything, Europe should do that.” And finally getting to the point, he insisted, “We should force the change to happen, that’s why we are pushing for a European role” including backing an international peace conference.” Finally, we have the crescendo heading to the conclusion which is, “It’s not our responsibility to protect the two-state solution, it’s your responsibility.” I don’t believe any of you will accept another apartheid regime to emerge in the 21st century.” Remember that Mahmoud Abbas has flatly refused to even consider any proposal put forth by President Trump and is now insisting that an international group resembling the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) for its make-up be established to decide the fates of the PA and Israel.

 

Why are they insisting on such an assembly that will decide what actually needs to be resolved between the two parties? The reason is that the Palestinian Arabs’ leaders do not desire a solution but dissolution of the Jewish State and they know a UNGA styled conglomerate would easily pass anything the Arabs proposed while refusing everything proposed in favor of Israel. They would readily accept making Palestine defined as the Green Line and the Jordan River with its capital in East Jerusalem and then further rule that Israel be ruled by Arab leadership where there are guarantees that the Jews will be treated as the world body would expect. Somehow, such a situation does not fill the Jews of Israel as an idea with which we would be able to live, and that is our main problem with having the Arabs as our masters, history had taught us how that would end. All one need do is look at the vast majority of resolutions condemning Israel passed by the UNGA as well as the Human Rights Council, UNICEF, UNESCO and the other various tentacles of the United Nations. The General Assembly on these matters likely averages, we estimate, at 115 favor sanctioning Israel, 9 opposes such sanctioning and around 35 abstain or vote present. Is it any wonder that Israel would refuse to allow for her fate to be decided largely by the 57 Muslim States in league with the majority of the over 100 countries in the Non-Aligned Movement of developing nations? That would be very similar to over one-hundred hungry wolves with around ten fat and happy sheep surrounded by thirty-five large rocks all voting as to what should be dinner. The rocks do not care, the sheep bleat softly unable to be heard over the cacophonic din of howling wolves right before their feast. That is what the Palestinian Arabs are seeking, complete and total victory leading to the eradication of the Zionist entity and those who comprise the Jewish State.

 

As stated, this ploy is not new and will fail as it has to this point. The problem comes when one realizes that every last demand ever made by the Arabs has eventually come to pass. They simply choose the next target and then relentlessly pursue that goal using Saudi and others oil money and skillful use of all forms of media, something easily accomplished with the funds available. This has been carried further with oil money buying Middle East Department Chair which determine the course material and information provided, none of which gives Israel even the hint of legitimacy and proclaims the lie that Israel was Europe’s apology for the Holocaust. This is completely invalid as the initial start for the founding of Israel was the formal agreement to accept the Balfour Declaration letter of 1917 enjoining it to the San Remo Conference which was adopted further by the League of Nations into the Mandate System which was adopted by the United States in the Anglo-American Treaty and finally adopted by the United Nations in Article 80 of their charter. All of these events dated before World War II with the exception of the United Nations assuming responsibility for final enforcement of the Mandates from after World War I. Further steps are in the works and already bearing fruit for the Arab side as they are gaining influence on the public school systems and particularly the printing of history books and their references to the Middle East even to have included maps which show Israel as an invader which is erasing a former nation of Palestine. The small and possibly insignificant truth is that there has never been a nation called Palestine, no nation other than modern and ancient Israel and Judea have had Jerusalem as their capital city. Yet the insistence is that history must teach how the Jews have usurped the lands west of the Jordan River blaming it on European colonialism and demanding that the Jews return to their origins in Europe. That begs the question as to what the other half of Israeli Jews, whose nation of origins which forced them out after stealing their wealth, businesses, homes and anything valuable were the numerous Arab states, supposed to do. Will Libya, Syria, Iraq, Egypt and the rest take back these Jews and their children and grandchildren? That is highly doubtful. Then there are the children whose parents are one from Europe and the other from an Arab nation, what to do with these children. Perhaps this is where the solution by King Solomon might apply, well, except the Arabs claim that King Solomon either never existed and never built any temple or that he was a Muslim and he build a Mosque. Colleges across Europe and the United States are teaching a creeping form of anti-Israelism, anti-Zionism and are taking no discernable efforts to curb anti-Semitism. These are the future leaders of the world, the nations of Europe and the United States as well as Canada, and their falsehoods learned now as the real truth will forever have effects upon their thinking. This is part of why the Palestinian Arabs refuse every treaty which leaves Israel existing in any form as the Jewish State and not with the Arabs ruling over the Jews, as they explain, the Quran states that this is the natural order of the world. The Quran also divides the world into two camps, the one of peace where Islam rules and the ones of war waiting to be conquered by Islamic forces. The Quran presumably claims that no lands once ruled by a Muslim must ever be permitted rule by any other. That makes Israel a problem as long as it is ruled by Jews.

 

This Arab-Israeli conflict is a simple conflict to understand once the reality is understood. This is not a war over land, if that were the case, it would have been resolved by now. This is not about Israel being a colonial power placed in the heart of the Islamic world. That claim is a simple means of falsifying the Jews claim to their ancient homelands. As far as Islam is concerned, the Jews never resided in the area of Israel despite evidence. This is true under Islam which believes that history started when Islamic forces marched against the Jews of Medina and against Mecca before moving out of the Arabian Peninsula to conquer the world. That was between 710 and 725 A.D. This is why they missed ancient Israel which was destroyed by Rome in 135 A.D. and its peoples spread throughout the Empire so as to assure that the world would never again know the Jews, just as they had dispersed the Carthaginians in order to erase them as a people. Today one would be hard pressed to find a Carthaginian and despite being a small minority, the Jews still exist and leave their mark on the world. Sometimes these newer religions have a difficulty imagining the Jews who have a three-thousand year plus history going back to somewhere around 2500B.C.E. when Abraham left for the lands the Lord would show him. That actually would mean that the history of the Jewish People which begins with the birth of the Israelites with Abraham making the contract with Hashem somewhere around 4500 years ago. That was when the initial promise was made. Somewhere soon after this date was when Abraham paid premium price to purchase the Cave outside Hevron in which to bury Sarah. Eventually Sarah would be joined in burial there by Abraham, Isaac, Rebekah, Jacob and Leah all in good time. The cave and the field before it were purchased by Abraham which was the first area of land that our forefather purchased and from which Israel came into being. That is the Jewish claim to these lands.

 

This war is to deny the Jews a homeland and to make them wanderers despised wherever they reside. The Muslims do not recognize any right of the Jews as they see the Jew as an accursed brute to be scorned and put down regarding them as barely human. The hatred taught by Islam of the Jews is beyond imagination. People from the Western developed world cannot begin to fathom the vile acrimonious contempt the Middle Eastern Arab Muslims feel towards Jews. That is the basis for their war against Israel. Just review the history. Half a dozen Arab nations sent their armies to aid the militias in destroying the Jewish State on the morning of her birth in 1948 and they failed. Again, in 1967 we had the Six Day War where Arab forces from at least six or seven nations failed to destroy Israel and drive the Jews into the Sea. In 1973, there was another attempt to destroy the Jewish entity during the Yom Kippur War, and again they failed. This was the turning point when the Arab world invented a proxy to fight in their stead, the Palestinian Arabs. They were to utilize terror, warfare, propaganda and would be aided by the Arab world in destroying Israel in stages. This is a war of annihilation where the Jews must be eradicated. Hamas has in their charter the demand that every last Jew be hunted down and murdered. The PLO were not much different, they only claimed the desire to murder every Zionist and Jew in Israel. Do not believe the false claims that if only Israel would grant them their state that all would be well. Israel completely evacuated Gaza of Jews and any Israelis even those not Jewish and turned it over to the Arabs and we see what that produced, and it was a far cry from peace.

 

This is not a war over land, not a war over nationhood, not a war in any normal modern rules of engagement; it is a war of extermination and there will not be peace as long as Israel exists. Simply stated, Israel must be destroyed and the Jewish State be no more with all the Jews being slaughtered as would most of the Christians and people of other faiths. Even should Israel clear Gaza of Hamas and Islamic Jihad and allow Gaza to rule itself as a protected area where the IDF freely operates to prevent any terrorist group from starting to try and take control while clearing Area C of the Shomron and allowing the PA to rule as a semiautonomous region also protected by the IDF, this would not even approach being the end of the claims of the Arabs and their allies. Should the situation on all fronts explode into violence simultaneously, with Gaza, Shomron and Lebanon, overseen by Hamas, the PLO and Hezballah, throwing everything they could at Israel and Israel counterstrike destroying all adversaries, that would only allow a pause. There would then begin terror strikes across all borders. In Lebanon Israel would be holding everything south of the Litani River and to the east there are the Golan Heights and the Jordan River and to the south Jordan and the Sinai Peninsula, a wild place inhabited largely by terrorists and criminal elements and largely untamed by Egypt. The war would continue and there is nothing which Israel could do to end this conflict. Even should Israel turn off the electricity, natural gas, water and end the tractor-trailers carrying tons of goods daily into Gaza, they would simply allow their public to live without basic necessities just to continue to manufacture rockets to fire into Israel. They would continue to surround the rocket launchers with children, have women encircle any building Hamas needs and have their commanders and leaders crawling into their bunker located under the al-Shifa Hospital. The only way for peace to be attained is either Israel and the Jews are destroyed or Islam reaches a point where they no longer insist that they rule the world and every knee bend to Allah. The first is not going to happen if it can be avoided and the second will not be an easy transformation. Despite what the developed world thinks, there are still those whose fancy is to rule the entirety of the globe, and those who merely desire to take the initial steps feeling assured that their efforts would lead to world domination. Apparently, world domination had rested on waiting for Israel to be crushed. As Israel has resisted crushing, the Muslim world has already begun to prepare for the second phase, infiltration through massive illegal immigrants just entering demanding asylum. These waves have struck Germany, Italy, France, Great Britain, Greece and have begun in North America. Apparently, Israel is contained though they will always try and destroy her. The question before the world now is how they are going to deal with creeping Sharia and its implications. The time to act has long passed and still little if anything has been performed which would act to prevent Sharia from entering our nations as it is a means of implanting an Islamic jurisprudence. What to do if the two sets of laws are in contradiction, the state law wins, initially followed by nightly rioting burning vehicles and terrorizing neighborhoods and pickets outside the Congress and other houses of parliament demanding that Islamic law is supreme and their old laws must yield to Sharia. Wake up now before it is too late, or is it already too late for most of Europe. Israel will hang on and remain, will your nation?

Spain Should Look Carefully Before They Leap

 

The Spanish Foreign Minister on Thursday said his country is ready to recognize a Palestinian state. How so absolutely sweet and politically correct in a leftist world enamored with Islam. But do the Spanish realize exactly what they are deciding to take on with this decision? The answer is easy to give, it is, absolutely not. They have no idea what it is they are willing to do. They do not even know exactly why. All they know is that it is the correct thing to do according to political correctness. This is the thing, the new thinking which is coming to the world as they embrace leftist thought and the endorsement of Islam as an additional weapon against their former Judeo-Christian ethic opposed by their new socialist-secular-humanism, which requires the squelching of the historic base of Western culture, Judeo-Christianity. The reason they are choosing to ally with Islam is because Islam, like socialist-secular-humanism, is based upon the replacement of Judeo-Christian ethos. The difference is with what each desires to replace the Judeo-Christian ethos, one desires the leftist, multicultural, LGBTQIA rights and the rest of the far left agenda while Islam desires imposing Sharia which calls for the murder of sexual deviants, women subjugation, and virtually every anti-leftist thought. The biggest difference is while Islam has actually no problem with using weaponry to impose their Sharia while the socialist-secular-humanists are anti-firearms and in a confrontation against Islam would be next to defenseless. Spain is currently steeped in this leftist conundrum where, despite the ideological differences, they will embrace the Islamic side against Judeo-Christian ethos, and Judaism ethics even more-so, and thus will prefer the Palestinian claims over that of the Jews. But what are they overlooking, that is the central question.

 

Do the Spanish actually understand what the Palestinian Authority’s actual claims include? Do they understand that what they are demanding is that their state of Palestine replaces Israel completely and the Jews residing in Israel being eliminated as Jews are completely unacceptable to them in their belief in Islam? Their claims are easily recognized to anybody paying even the slightest attention. The leadership in Spain has not been paying attention. Perhaps we should give them some fact for thought. The old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words is about to save us writing and you reading thousands of words as we are going to rely on pictures.

 

Abbas Accepting Map Depicting Palestine Replacing all of Israel and Looking Extremely Pleased

 

 

Mahmoud Abbas holding up his treasured gift depicting his state of Palestine replacing all of Israel and the lands from the River to the Sea

Both of the above are events where Mahmoud Abbas was awarded with replicas of what is to be the future state of Palestine which has an uncanny relationship to a map of Israel. In fact, they are exactly maps of Israel or depictions of all of the lands which make up Israel. This is what the Spanish are giving their support behind. Their support of Abbas and the Islamic claims are not to share the lands with the Jews but to replace the “Zionist entity,” using their terminology, followed by permitting the Jews to remain as a protected people. They are referring to keeping them as Dhimmis which remain for as long as they are able to produce and make scientific advancements and produce wealth to pay the Jiyza. Once the Dhimmi, in this case the Jews of Israel, have been bled dry of their wealth and no longer serve the advancement of Islam, then they are forced to convert or die. This is the solution the Spanish are thinking of endorsing. They may as well be calling for a worldwide Spanish Inquisition centered in what is currently Israel and allowing it to then spread throughout Europe. The one thing we can guarantee is once Israel is defeated, then Europe will fall rapidly. Should Israel remain, then Europe might have an opportunity to survive the influx of Islam and what such will eventually produce as a result.

 

 

Palestinian Textbook Maps depicting Palestine as replacing Israel, not sharing the land in peace and security as the Europeans and the rest of the West insist to misrepresent

 

The above are the maps used to educate the youth in Palestinian Authority schools as well as UNRWA schools. In these maps, Israel does not exist and has been replaced by their supposed state of Palestine. There is no allowance for the Jewish State, Israel is to be erased and replaced by Palestine, nothing less. This is what they teach in their schools, but this is the least of the problems. They also teach that the Jews are a subhuman group actually formed by Allah into apes and pigs while their scholars are to be like dogs and their simple people like donkeys. In Islam, pigs and dogs are considered unclean and next to being abominations which are to be eradicated. As for apes, they are just subhuman beings which are to be ignored or murdered if they become bothersome while the donkey is a beast of burden which often requires beating to get it to do the simplest of tasks. The Jews are corruption and the killers of the prophets, though who these prophets were that the Jews were to have killed is never quite explained, it is simply accepted fact because the Imams and Quran insist that such is the case. This is all included in the video below.

 

 

This is far from the sole such video, but we are attempting not to use overkill. But, just in case there are those out there who demand more than a single piece of evidence and claim that we found an Imam who was not mainstream and was taken out of context, here are a few more videos for your perusal and pleasure.

 

 

We really hope these are sufficient as the final one depicts the brainwashing of their children to hate Jews and believe that they are subhuman worthy of being killed by Muslims. They are often depicted as pigs, dogs and apes amongst other undesirable animals making them easier to murder without having feelings of guilt. Many Imams and Islamic leaders teach the hatred of Jews almost in their children’s mother’s milk. This is a longstanding Islamic belief based on the claim that the Jews in Medina were about to break their peace with Muhammad, what became the definition of a Hudna, a ten year treaty under which the Muslims are to attack any time they feel they have gained a military advantage. The Hudna is simply a pause in warfare to allow the Muslims to rearm, gather more troops and gain whatever advantage they are able and then break the Hudna and reengage the war and defeat their target. Muhammad was later claimed to have said to have found that the Jews of Medina were making conspiracies by which they were going to attack and slaughter the Muslims of Medina. The evidence is less corroborative to this claim as when the Muslims set upon the Jewish villages outside Medina, they easily overcame the Jews slaughtering the men with little resistance which is rather strange if the Jews were making arrangements and arming to engage in war. The Jewish villages were lightly armed and easily fell before the well armed Muslims who attacked on horseback against the Jews working their fields and then rounding up the remainder of the Jews and then beheaded the men and took the women as bounty.

 

But, as they say, that was then and this is now. The unfortunate truth is that for Islam what was then still applies to now. The fact that the Jews fell so easily before the Muslims around Medina is what had led the Arab nations to believe that they could easily wipe Israel from the face of the Earth in 1948, as after all the Jews had apparently simply followed orders and went to their deaths under Nazi genocidal demands in Europe and these were the same Jews, right? Well, not all Jews simply fell before the Nazis orders sending them to death camps. There were Jewish resistance fighters who organized and assaulted the Nazis from various places including ghettos, concentration camps and from the surrounding countryside throughout Europe. One of the most famous of the Jewish resistance fighters were the Bielski Brothers who actually managed a moving city of over 1200 Jews hiding in the forests while often fighting the Nazis, infiltrating Nazi headquarters and holding camps to take out Jews and bring them to their moving city. They had Jews of all ages, men and women with children, many were of limited ability for fighting but all had their jobs to perform to continue to keep everyone fed as well as hidden. Their story was placed on the silver screen in the movie “Defiance.” These were the types of Jews, as well as others, who fought with a zeal of people who know they have nowhere else that will accept them kindles within.

 

The Arabs gained some land but were unable of eliminating these Jews, some were natives to the holy Lands, some came from Britain and the United States and the majority was made up of the remnants from the Holocaust in Europe with a small number in 1948 coming from the Islamic world. The Arabs using six national armies managed to gain the Gaza and the Shomron which Jordan would rename West Bank as Shomron or the alternative of Judea and Samaria were far too Jewish for their tastes. Over the next dozen years, the population of Israel changed drastically as the Arab world of the Middle East and North Africa expelled their Jews sending over 850,000 Jews into Israel which Israel incorporated into their general population. This influx basically doubled the population of Israel and puts lie to the claims that the Jews in Israel are a purely European colonial population. But we are willing to bet that the Spanish government is either unaware of these facts or is simply ignoring them and returning to their wonderful attitudes from the Spanish Inquisition. Spain is also using their claim to recognize Palestine even should the European Union once more be unable to get an unanimous decision necessary to have them recognize Palestine. They likely also are unaware that the originating PLO, which became the Palestinian Authority, initially made no claim to the Shomron or Gaza but only to all of Israel which they had absolutely no desire to make into a new Arab state but were to surrendering it to Jordan once they removed the Jewish “occupiers.” Their idea for a new nation came as an idea designed by the KGB as a response for the PLO to take after Israel liberated the Shomron and Gaza in the 1967 Six Day War. After this war, the world should of done what they had done with India and Pakistan amongst other situations where nations adjusted borders, and simply moved the Arabs living in the Shomron into Jordan and the ones in Gaza into Egypt and simply completed allowing Israel the lands promised by the San Remo Conference and other agreements crafted at the end of World War I which divided up the lands from the German Empire, the Austria-Hungarian Empire and the Ottoman Empire, the losing side of that war, and returned as much of these lands to their aboriginal peoples where possible, well, except the Kurds who the British decided to grant their lands to Iraq in exchange for the Mosul oil fields. The Jewish State was amongst these states while the Arab states were drawn with the intent of making ruling the nations difficult often resulting in dictatorial regimes coming to power when the monarchies were overthrown while Jordan remains ruled by the remaining King outside the Saudi Royal family, a British and allied powers designed royal family. As oil was so important in the making of the Arab nations in the Middle East, it boggles the mind that the world is so completely centered on Israel which, until recent developments, has no oil and only now has natural gas in offshore regions. The truth is much of Europe simply cannot stand that the Jews are no longer kept under their oppressive boots, a similar belief throughout Islam but as European feelings against the Jews were once religious and are now simply racial while the Arab world it is a combination of racial and religious hatreds.

 

Spain can go ahead and recognize Palestine, but we have a question for them. What are the borders of this Palestine you are recognizing? If you claim it is the mere 22% that they claim meaning the West Bank and Gaza, that is not 22% of anything and never was the 22% they claimed. When Mahmoud Abbas states they will establish their state of Palestine in the remaining 22% of the British Mandate, they mean the 22% of the British Mandate which does not belong to Jordan who received 78% of the British Mandate (see map below). The demand by Abbas is for the 22% in the map delineated in yellow and nothing short of the complete replacement of Israel and the oppression of the Jews eventually resulting in their eradication. Spain can join those nations in backing the Arab and KGB (now defunct but in on the original plans) attempts to establish an Arab replacement of Israel, the Zionist entity. According to Mahmoud Abbas, there are 139 countries that have recognized “Palestine.” We have some doubts as to this number as many nations have passed resolution to recognize the Arab Islamic Entity which was unofficial and not actual official recognition. But is there something Israel could do to slow this insanity?

 

British Mandate as prescribed division between Arab State of Jordan and Jewish State of Israel

British Mandate as prescribed division between Arab State of Jordan and Jewish State of Israel

 

We would love to give them an idea which might make nations and their leaderships give such thoughts a second review before madly rushing to join in condemning Israel. As these nations are choosing to back the Arab claim over the rightful return of the Jews to their three thousand year old homelands. We literally are home and any honest review of the real history will reveal that the Jewish People resided in these lands for over two thousand years before Muhammad and the Muslims came pouring out of the Arabian Peninsula on their way to conquering the world. FYI, they are still on their way to world conquest whether Europeans or anybody else wishes to recognize this or not. As long as they are willing to leave Israel alone, we might trust them this time, though Medina should be a lesson that we can trust but remain ready if things turn bad. Now, as far as those nations who decide to recognize Palestine and their desire to erase Israel, perhaps Israel could simply warn every nation that by doing so, Israel will recall their ambassador and embassy personnel and close their embassy, close their embassy and expel their ambassador, and place them in a state of embargo ending all trade with them. Any companies of theirs will be invited to close their offices within Israel and all goods we have will be the last we will receive from them. Simply, if they choose to recognize Palestine over Israel, then they can trade with the PLO instead of Israel and live with their choice. If this results in Israel only having relations with seventy nations or potentially less, then that will be the case and we will find some way of surviving without their special goods. As far as Spain’s exports, we might be able to find other sources and most of them we produce in greater quantity and quality than they and we might survive without their trade. Checking the exports and imports we find that Spain is not exactly irreplaceable in either category. And even if Spain were the sole exporter of some fruit, wine, automobile or any other item or goods, then either Israel would need to find a means of growing it here, manufacturing it here or finding a suitable replacement. If all of these are impossible, then Israelis will need to simply find some way of doing without as sometimes sacrifice is necessary in dealing with others in order to make your points understood. The problem is often it appears that our government is afraid to upset anyone else even if it means that we sometimes cut off our noses to spite our faces. This is an act we must end and learn that we are equals to every other nation and we must demand the same respect which we so willingly give and if there are those who refuse to respect us, then we must end our respect of them until they alter their treatment of Israel. We deserve no less.

Current Assessments of Arab-Israeli Conflict Unhelpful

 

There are a number of glaring false assumptions about the Arab-Israeli conflict which serve only to minimize the antipathy felt by the aggressor which began the conflict and set it in motion for perpetuity. The most easily identified errors are that the conflict began in 1948 with the founding of the state of Israel, that the conflict is one-hundred years old, that the disagreement is over borders, that Jerusalem is a central core of the problem and a dozen other such falsities. This war started at the oasis of Khaybar outside Medina. For close to a thousand years Jews lived in the oases of Teyma, Khaybar, and Yathrib peaceably with the surrounding communities, both idolatrous and the growing Islamic community in Medina. There was one area of contention between the Jewish communities and Muhammad, the Jews refused to convert and refused to accept him as the final prophet holding to the historic Jewish belief that the period of the Prophets was long ended. In the year 628-9 A.D., Muhammad gathered his forces and invaded the Jewish community at the Oasis of Khaybar defeating them. In less than a decade, the Islamic forces had defeated all of the separate Jewish communities driving them from the area. It is partially because these were the first groups with whom Muhammad warred or due to the stiff resistance and lack of trust as treaties were disregarded when they were considered inconvenient and no longer to one’s advantage that a great animosity was built between the Jews and Muslims that the Jews are chosen for a particular hatred by Islam. Consider the example of the Qurayza Tribe of Jews, who were defeated by Muhammad despite their leader opting to stay neutral when their town was besieged by a Meccan army that was sent to take revenge for Muhammad’s deadly caravan raids. Their sin was not joining the fight to defend Muhammad and his fellow caravan raiders who were within their town. The tribe killed no one from either side and even surrendered peacefully to Muhammad after the Meccans had been turned back. Yet still Muhammad had every male member of the Qurayza Tribe beheaded. The wars between the Muslims and their continued history of periodic particularly harsh treatment of Jews emanate from these battles.

 

Further, the Quran even states, in Sahih Bukhari 52:177, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say, ‘O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.’” This requires the followers of Islam to war against the Jews, some now interpret this to mean defeating Israel, before their end-times can commence or at least have its time set. This adds to their reasons to fight against Jews which now means Israel. Additionally there are the two spheres which the world is divided among in Islam, Dar al-Islam and Dar al-Harb. Dar al-Islam is the House of Islam, the area under Islamic rule and thus considered to be at peace; and Dar el Harb being the House of War which includes all lands with which Islam is at war that includes everything outside Dar al-Islam, simply put, everywhere else. Another point is that once Islam conquers any territory, it is to then remain under Islamic dominance forever and should Islamic territory be lost, even or especially were it to revert to previous (infidel) ownership thus falling outside Islam, that becomes a mortal affront to the supremacy of Islam. Hamas has in their preamble to the Hamas Charter a quote from their founder, Imam Hassan al-Banna “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.” Obviously, throughout history at numerous times the Jews and even Israel was an area of supreme importance and considered to be the ultimate threat facing Islam. But then, we would simply ask ourselves, why should Islam be any different from everyone else. Before you get up and demand what we mean by everyone else, let us give a partial list of everyone else throughout history; the Pharos’s Egypt, Philistines, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Ancient Greeks, Roman Empire, Byzantines, Islamic Caliphate, Crusaders, English Empire, Rome’s Inquisition, Spanish Empire, Nazis, Communists and others.

 

In all honesty, we are not claiming by any stretch of the imagination that Israel’s only difficulty is with Islam as there are a plethora of others who would love for Israel to disappear. Many groups outside the Arab and Muslim worlds would also be happy for Israel to disappear. We also need to point out not all of the Arab and Muslim worlds actively want to destroy Israel. One of the main forces which in ambivalent at best and animosity at the worst we have Rome, Vatican City to be more precise where the Catholic Church has a long history of following Replacement Theology which turned the Jews from the Chosen People into the Cursed People. Much of Replacement Theology is based upon the Jewish People being dispersed and denied any return to the Holy Lands. The fact that Israel had been destroyed and the Jews apparently thrown from their homelands was all the proof that the Christians, or in this case the Catholic Church, had replaced the Jews as the Chosen People and the Jews cursed. Then we come to Martin Luther who carries Replacement Theology one-step further and claiming that the Catholic Church has sold their souls and were to join the Jews as cursed and his church was the replacement and true faith. This idea of Replacement Theology continued being used by each Protestant Church during the Reformation. The Church of England, Episcopal Church, also took the position of being the singular holy church for the British Isles which led to years of fighting between the Catholics and the Anglicans. Every step along the way, Replacement Theology was utilized by each Protestant Church founder claimed to have the rights to the title of the Chosen People and all previous forms of Christianity and the Jews now being the cursed people. Islam was no exception as when Muhammad came forth with Islam, he declared that he was presenting the final incarnation of Allah’s word and Islam would be the last and only Chosen People as they replaced all the various Christian faiths and especially the Jews, just as the Christians had denoted the Jews.

 

Refuting the Lie of Replacement Theology

 

Along with each religion, the nation which adopted these various sects of Christianity, the different forms of Islam and the anti-religion Communism all declared their animosity against the Jews. When Israel was reformed by David Ben Gurion declaring Israel founded, all the aforementioned religions had a total conniption-fit expressing their protestation in various means. Most Christian faiths declared this not to be the real return of the Jews and in no way made them once again the Chosen People with the Catholic Church even declaring Israel as an abomination while much of the Islamic world and the Arab League declared total genocidal war of cleansing of the Zionist Entity. The thing which is interesting is how the Arab Islamic worlds ignore the reestablishment of the Jewish homelands of Israel by referring to Israel as the Zionist entity such that they can claim that this is not the reestablished Jewish or Israelite homelands. This is also why they also claim that the Jews of today are not related to the Jews from antiquity despite genetic proof of their having Middle Eastern DNA markers and many families have traceable histories back many centuries even beyond one millennium. They even doubt those Jewish families who have never left Jerusalem except temporarily after Christian and Islamic expulsions always to return as soon as they were able.

 

What makes much of the efforts in the modern era since 1948 to solve the various forms it has taken adjusting to changing conditions and models presented is that they take that the entirety of the problem either began in 1948 with the founding of Israel, it started with the treaties and conferences after World War I or it began with the onset of modern Zionism. These are all completely wrong, as Islam had been at active war with the Jews throughout their history at various levels. People will point to periods where Jews thrived under Islamic rulers but most of these rulers did not follow strict Sharia, the Quranic defined statutes of law. The other difficulty is that despite periods where Jews were treated fairly well, these were always limited periods similar to the periods under European rule in the various nations where Jews were accepted for periods always eventually to come under critical treatment and even actively murdered often by burning at the stake, hanging, boiled in oil and the many various tortures of the Inquisitions. Islam began with mistreatment of the Jews either demanding the Jizya, a special tax levied against non-Muslims for the privilege and protection living under Islamic rule. This tax varied depending on the requirements of the governance, the greater their need the greater the Jizya often leading to a condition which becomes unlivable. This war against the Jews began, as we pointed out at the beginning, in the year 628-9 A.D. and continued, as has the Christian warfare against the Jews, intermittently ever since or as the anti-religious forces of Communism and Nazism have constantly since their inception.
