Are Iranian Threats for Real?

If the Iranian threats are real, then what should or even can the rest of the world do to prepare? Iran regularly threatens Israel both from Tehran and out of Lebanon using Hezballah and Islamic Jihad and Hamas out of Gaza. Iran also is almost as consistent in threatening the United States from rallies in Tehran. We realize that part of the reason for these rallies where “Death to Israel, death to America” is because it is chanted most often on Friday afternoon after services. The problem is that the Western World measures the Iranian actions according to Western Judeo-Christian ethics expecting that they would be reasonable and negotiations would serve to mitigate any differences. The real problem is that the Western World has given up completely on any single nation conquering the Earth. What the West is missing out on is that the rest of the world has not given up on world conquest. Iran definitely believes that they will conquer the world and force Shia Islam onto the entire population using threats of convert or death. This is an intricate part of the philosophy encased in the Quran where Allah has promised that Islam will rule the entire planet and force the world to convert to Islam. What it does not tell is whether Shia Islam or Sunni Islam will be the version which will conquer the world. But the one thing which matters is that both Sunni and Shia Muslims believe that they are to be the eventual conquerors of Earth.

 

Iran is not the only nation which believes they should conquer the world and place all humankind under their rule. These nations are not democratic nations and instead choose dictatorial leaders who rule absolutely. Hamas’s original charter specified that once they destroyed Israel, they would then take their Islamic revolution to the rest of the world and genocidally murder every Jew everywhere on Earth before forcing all to convert to Islam. The Islamic State at their most powerful also insisted that they were chosen to conquer the world for Islam. The same can be stated about al-Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood and numerous other Islamic leaders. Then there is the Communist threat which China poses as they intend to spread their form of governance. These are just scratching the surface as who knows where the next threat might arise just as we likely never anticipated ISIS before they exploded on the scene and conquered an area the size of many nations and far larger than Israel. The Western World will be required to wake to the threat which is most ascendant at the current time, and that threat is Iran. Much of the Sunni Islamic world currently appear to be satisfied to currently wait for a future period to rise to take the world. What it would require would be a charismatic leader who could unite the entirety of the Sunni Islam into a single power. Shia Islam has already been set to be unified under Iran as they control Iraqi Shia, Yemenis Shia, Syrian Shia and Lebanese Shia in what many refer to as the Shiite Crescent (see map below). This is the spread of IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) and even Iranian regular army. Iran is also utilizing Hezballah in Syria and Yemen as well as threatening Israel from Lebanon.

Their control of Yemen, which has not been completed, places Iranian aligned forces surrounding Saudi Arabia. Additionally, Iran is in control of the Strait of Hurmuz and with Yemen they control the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait. This provides them with the ability to threaten the oil shipments from the Middle East and shut the Suez Canal by closing off the mouth of the Red Sea. Iran has taken strategic points to control which could easily lead to an isolated Europe cut off from Asia, the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Islands. If one were planning to conquer the world using Iran as the central force, this would be the exact tactics which could set up such a threat becoming reality. Iran appears to be waiting for Europe to become overrun by Islamic “refugees” who will refuse to assimilate and instead insist that their religion be granted absolute rule. Then, Iran hopes that if they are able to destroy or conquer Israel or Saudi Arabia that this will influence the majority of Muslims to change from Sunni to Shia Islam. Iran has already laid out their plan for the conquest of Saudi Arabia and the removal of the Saudi Royal Family which the Iranian leaders claim are apostates. Their intent would be to attack the northeastern oil fields which has a majority Shia population while attacking from Yemen taking Mecca and Medina, the Two Holy Cities. This would remove the mystic which the Saudi Royal Family use to remain in power, namely their oil money to bribe the Wahabi clerics and they would lose their title as protectors of the holy cities which would, according to Iran, steal from the Saudi Royals their main pillars of support which could lead to serious opposition from the Saudi population.

The Iranian leadership will not remain patient forever and eventually they will launch attacks either at Saudi Arabia, Israel or the United States and any combination thereof. But there is one item which the Iranian Mullahs ignore at their own peril, or so we can all pray. The average Persian citizen largely go through the motions of following Shia Islam while many also follow the Persian religion of Zoroastrianism, at least according to Amil Imani in a recent article. This provides an opportunity for the Western World to assist the Iranians who attempted to challenge the Mullahs but were basically sold down the river by President Obama as he desired making an agreement through which he could guarantee that Iran becomes a nuclear armed nation but not until he will have left office. This was the Green Revolution of 2009. Should the Iranian people rise up against their theocratic dictatorial governance where the actual leadership decide who are permitted to run for office making sure that the government will always behave properly and fully support everything the Mullahs, and specifically the Supreme Leader and Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. For those who hold out hope that when a new Supreme Leader is chosen when Ali Khamenei passes will be more moderate, allow us to point out that every politician the West believed were moderates would fall in line behind the Supreme Leaders and enforce his every whim. Ali Khamenei is simply following the exact political plans which originated with the former Supreme Leader Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini who initiated the Iranian revolution of 1979 with the blessings of President Jimmy Carter who claimed that as a cleric, Ruhollah Khomeini would be a man of peace and was the first American politician to claim that Islam was the religion of peace.

 

Perhaps some of the State Department leadership need to read the Quran, realize that the Medina Quran has overruled the peaceful beliefs of the Meccan Quran. Islam divides the world into two worlds, Dar al Islam, where Islam had established rule and is thus to be considered a world at peace, and Dar al-Harb, the world of war which has yet to be conquered by Islam. That is the reality which the world is simply standing around twiddling their thumbs waiting for Iran to obtain a sizable nuclear armaments with missiles capable of delivering them anywhere on the planet, and even then, the West will wait for Iran to pick and choose when and where they wish to initiate their world conquest. What is really sad is that should Iran decide to begin with Israel, the world will stand by with their hands in their pockets claiming what a great loss it was to lose Israel. This will be the statements coming from Europe and probably the United States after President Trump before Iran even actually attacks as Iran will study the reactions of the rest of the Western leadership as they increasingly threaten to destroy Israel. Israel will very likely be the Czechoslovakia of the coming World War. Fortunately, we in Israel are aware, at least those of us who are pragmatic enough to realize that the world is not exactly going to come running to aid Israel, and Iran is simply waiting for the United States to join Europe in being critical of Israel willing to blame Israel for their being threatened and attacked by Iran. This war is coming, potentially in stages which very readily start with attacks upon Israel. After Israel, expect Jordan to be the next and then Saudi Arabia and as long as the United States remains hands off, Iran will expand and expand taking one nation after another, slowly so as to allow the world to return to a state of calm before advancing to the next victim. For those who claim this is nonsense, Iran has already absorbed Iraq, Yemen, Syria and long-ago Lebanon without even much of a peep from the world, specifically the United Nations who regularly blames Israel for the aggressions from Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezballah, all in the name and at the direction of Iran. Does anybody really believe things will get any better?

Gazans and Iranians, Two Entirely Different Reasons

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 1:54 AM

If even reported on, the mainstream media will do what they are able to cast the Iranian protester as a small and radical fragment of the society attempting to destroy the natural order while on the same page casting the Hamas rioters will be shown as peaceful human rights demonstrators just attempting to rectify wrongs. One can only wonder how the media can expect anybody to believe a word they say when they are so consistently on the wrong side of every issue. We have spoken about the Gazan situation lately and these articles can be found on our main page and going back over the past six weeks, so we will simply update a few aspects of what has happened over the last week and then talk more in depth on the Iranian situation.

 

The rioters in Gaza along the border, acting on the promptings from Hamas and Islamic Jihad, have been making a decent living earning from three hundred to five hundred dollars a day for launching incendiary kites and balloons into Israel burning forests, croplands and wilderness preserves which formerly were safe spaces for some endangered species. Reports tell us that three of the fires were in the Beeri forest, while the two others were in the Kissufim forest. Extensive damage was reportedly caused to the forest regions. On Sunday, an incendiary balloon was found in a populated area of the city of Sderot where Police bomb disposal experts neutralize the threat. Firefighters have been working non-stop in shifts over the past five weeks just to try and contain these fires, some of which have taken on firestorm proportions (see image below). The damages to crops alone has breached ten to twenty million dollars and the forests may take twenty years or far longer in some of the regions to recover and the wildlife has been permanently harmed.

In the more recent days Hamas and Islamic Jihad have resumed their rocket launching firing at least nine rockets towards the regional councils Hof Ashkelon, Sha’ar Hanegev and Eshkol in southern Israel. Fortunately, the Iron Dome systems intercepted one of the rockets headed for a populated area. Where there were no injuries and damage from the rockets was minimal, there are still costs both human and financial to these attacks. The obvious cost is that each Iron Dome interceptor costs over fifty-thousand dollars while the rockets they intercept cost a maximum of possibly twenty dollars. This is the difference between the two societies, one places the cost of destroying life at twenty dollars a shot with no guarantees while the other protects lives at whatever cost it takes. The further costs are the peoples’ lives which are interrupted by the alert sirens where they then hurry to find appropriate shelter either in a bomb room or in an underground shelter. Hamas and Islamic Jihad are willing to destroy the land if it will kill the Jews. They do not want Israel for their gain and to live as a productive society, and they are determined to make Israel unproductive for the society who is attempting to make these deserts bloom. This is a basic difference between the Middle Eastern tribal mentality and the mentality of the Western World.

 

Where in the Western World all emphasis is on productive ventures and taking care of those closest to you and attempting not to harm those around you, in the Middle East you do everything in your power to destroy the livelihoods and lands of those who are different from you. This is evident in Syria where there are three or more groups fighting against Bashir al-Assad while they also fight against one another. Libya is a similar example where the twelve or twenty or however many tribes spend most of their efforts on destroying everything the next tribe owns and not on forming a cohesive society with single national governance and where everyone works for mutual betterment. There is the Shia-Sunni-Kurd wars in Iraq where the government has destroyed most of the lands of the Sunni and are now doing similarly to the Kurds. In Syria troops from Turkey are sweeping across the north killing Kurds because they are not Turks. In Yemen there is violence with the Houthis attempting to cleanse the nation of every other tribe. This is also what Iran is supporting across the Middle East assisting every Shia tribe in cleansing the lands of those who are not Shia or are not Arab or Iranian. The one exception is Hamas who Iran supports simply because they hate the Jews more than they hate the Sunni terrorists of Hamas. Should Israel pick up tomorrow and go settle in space, then Iran would turn on Hamas and assist Islamic Jihad (Shia) destroy Hamas (Sunni). There you have the entire Middle East in a simple package, destroy everything which is not of your branch of Islam, tribe, family until there can be only one.

 

In Iran, the people have poured into the streets with a simple, almost Western, demand for the government to leave Syria, Yemen and elsewhere alone and start to pay attention to them. They have suffered spiraling inflation and youth unemployment in double digits with no relief in sight. These protests closed down two of the main markets within the capital of Tehran (see video below). This round of protests has thus far been nonviolent and the government has yet to make any moves to restrict or end these demonstrations. These are peaceful protests even if somewhat disorganized and boisterous and rambunctious with chants catching on getting rousing responses. Their anger is palpable and these are not just youth from the colleges but also taxi drivers, merchants, shop owners, teachers and people from almost all walks of life in Iran. These have been reported as some of the most serious protests in Iran since the 2009 crackdown where the government, in an attempt to decapitate their resistance as they saw it, arrested, tried and executed thousands of the protesters. Despite that the people are rising and demanding that their needs be addressed first and foremost by their government while others included in the protests, some reports claim this view is a majority view, want the government to step down and a true democratic government to replace the Mullahs.

 

 

Where will these protest lead is the big question. Will the people have sufficient power to bring down the Mullocracy and their tyrannical theocratic and oppressive regime? This will not come to fruition through peaceful protests as was proven in 2009 when the government simply broke up the protests by using teargas, water cannons and eventually live bullets killing people wantonly and randomly. If you were in the front approaching the troops, you were a target. What was worse was the unleashing of the Basij Militias onto the university campuses where they sought out people from the protest movement and beat them sometimes to death using bats, iron rods and other usually blunt weapons though at times they came wielding swords. These current protests, from what we have viewed, have a wide assortment of people out marching in the streets from the always-present youth to men and women in dress clothes such as button down shirts and other clothing which would be worn by white collar workers. When the working classes representing different stratum of employment are out and the shops along the protest routs are closed in support plus additionally the protests are not restricted to a single area but are filling the smaller streets of the bazaars and even inside a shopping mall shows that these protests are wide ranging. This can be found in the extended video below. We wish that the protests alone are capable of bringing change though we seriously doubt the reigning theocrats will budge or give up their control and comfortable, if not lavish, lifestyles. For some reason we do not buy their pious we live a Spartan existence completely lacking in overtly great comfort and we eat as the little people eat, you know, pheasant under glass, caviar, roasted lamb with mint jelly and other simply meals.

 

 

Unfortunately, dictatorial governance does not topple easily. The Mullahs are little different than the man they back in Syria, Bashir al-Assad, and in being his ilk, the Mullahs will not step aside even if they have to line the streets with corpses. They have their Basij Militias, their Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) who are sworn to perform the bidding of the Supreme Leader, Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei. When the decision is reached that the people have had their say, they have expressed their protests, and now it is time to restore the rightful order of things, these forces will confront the protesters and demand that they cease and desist immediately. This will last at the most three or four days before they start to break up the protests. About a week of teargas, water cannons, rubber bullets and nightsticks will force many of the protesters to give it up and return to their normal activities. This is also how the Mullahs’ government weeds out regular people such that they can explain to themselves that the remaining protesters are radicals attempting to overthrow the government and thus traitors. This is when they take off the silk gloves and replace it with their iron fist. Now they can perform mass arrests and soon simply start shooting the protester in the streets. The reason for the mass arrests is so they can take down the confessions of how these protesters were paid for by President Trump and by Israel or Saudi Arabia. They tape these confessions, after cleaning up the traitor such that they appear to not have been tortured, and play these confessions on Iranian State run television as proof of foreign provocateurs and agents being behind the protests using these as a warning to the people. This is the result in nations where the ruling elite have all the firearms and the people have next to nothing with which to fight back.

 

Is it possible that this will be the eventuality where the people find the will to storm the ramparts and bring everything down. That will actually depend on how the Mullahs decide to treat these protests. If their actions to shut everything down come before the majority of the protesting people who are less engaged in regime change have spent their energy and have begun to believe that perhaps this is not the time, then they could enrage the public. This might be the time where any overtly violent attempts to shut down the protests will rile the people into an actual revolt. Even troops armed with full automatic submachine guns and steeled determination backed by a high discipline and full belief they are doing the right thing can be rushed by a crowd of a few thousand, and these protests appear to have the thousands and a few spare thousands, such a cadre of enforcers would be overrun and probably before they used up all their ammunition. Now those who overran the enforcers have weapons and ammunition and the revolution is on. The story of the Jews revolt in the Warsaw Ghetto shows how you start with a single, old, barely functional revolver and hold off an entire Panzer division for almost six weeks and can be an instruction manual for how to start a revolution. The Iranian people have a proud heritage as Persians and many feel that Supreme Leader, Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei is a usurper and is not a fellow Persian. They also resent the Mullahs thinking similarly that they too are not truly Persian. This could add to their frustration the feeling that these outsiders are using their nation for their designs which do not serve their Persian ancestry and are destroying their Persia. The one item we can guarantee is that the current governance of Iran is playing with a potentially explosive situation and even if it does not explode this time, there will come that point in time when the protests grow beyond anybody’s control and the theocratic governance will be overthrown and the replacement will very likely be some form of representative governance which will resemble a republic, parliamentary democracy or something closely resembling a Western nation. The Iran that emerges will be closer to a Western governance than a Middle East governance and this will bring great wealth to the Iranian people and perhaps they will set an example for an Islamic governance which values similar principles as the developed Western World. Hope springs eternal.

President Trump Needs to Face Reality

 

President Trump has followed the same path taken by Presidents before him. Unfortunately, for all the victims of this policy, he has taken most of his thoughts from State Department policy wonks. This means that he is pursuing some form of the two-state solution. This tired, banal, old, worn-out policy which has been pushed by administration after administration to naught being once again proffered will face the same rejection it has time and again. The problem is simple; one side of the negotiations refuses to permit the other side to even have an existence demanding that they are the true owners of all of the area. The Palestinians Arabs represent the entirety of the Arab and Muslim world where the belief is that Allah has granted them domain over these lands. That Allah has granted them domain over these lands means they must not permit any others from ruling even a single square millimeter of the lands in the Middle East and North Africa. This is why every President has hit a brick wall in the negotiation, as the Arab side will insist on ultimatums which they know the Israelis cannot meet. Often this is the pre-Six Day War lines including the entirety of the Old City of Jerusalem including also the Temple Mount which will immediately become off-limits to all except Muslims just as was the case under Jordanian rule. Israel cannot accept allowing the Temple Mount to fall out of their access, which the Arabs know which is why they demand such. The job of the Palestinian Arabs is to make demands so extreme that Israel cannot accept, thus making it appear that the Israelis are refusing to make peace. The truth is that the Arabs have made clear that even if Israel accepts their maximalist demands, that will not bring an end to the resistance to the interlopers who, according to the Arabs, have no claim or right to be there. According to the Arab argument, in all of history there has never been a Jewish state in this area. This is true if, like the Arabs, you believe that history began in the year 630C.E. In the Arab World, the Jews never existed in this area and their view of ancient history is even more interesting. According to the Arab Muslim views, Abraham was a Muslim, Noah was a Muslim, Moses was a Muslim, King David was a Muslim, King Solomon was a Muslim plus Adam and Eve were Muslims, everybody of consequence to Jewish history were actually Muslims and thus there have never been any Jew in this area; so how can they make such claims now. This is the reality that many Muslims believe making any existence of Israel an abomination.

 

Hamas are the true face of the Arab views. They do not mince words; they simply call for the slaughter of the Jewish People in Israel and beyond. Hamas speaks the reality of the Arab view, that they should rule the world because Allah promised them the world. Everybody must surrender and bow to Allah in the world for the world to be made perfect. Not just surrender to Allah, but to do so in the correct form of Islam. Which form, well, that depends on who you are being conquered by. If it is the Muslim Brotherhood, then Sunni Islam and if it is Iran, then Shia Islam, and if Hamas is the group then you will be confused as they are mostly Sunni but are supported by Iran who are Shia. What version of Islam is inconsequential, as such would only be a problem should Israel be dissolved permitting the Arabs, the PLO, Hezballah, Hamas or Islamic Jihad, to take charge of all of the lands and allow the mass murder causing the death of over six-million Jews in the process. The Palestinian Authority Arabs do not mention the eradication of the Jews as Hamas does, but they desire the same bloodshed and mass executions, as does Hamas. President Trump has been fed the same misconceptions by the State Department, as had his predecessors. He was sold the same two state solution and perhaps he adjusted it such that Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia or some combination of Arab powers taking responsibility for the Arab regions within the region currently held by Israel. It is time for a new solution to be enacted which is guaranteed to relieve the economic troubles of Gaza and promise new opportunities for the Palestinian population.

 

So, what could such a solution entail? It begins with the removal of the terror chiefs who currently control the direction of negotiations. This includes leaders of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, PLO and the Palestinian Authority. Once these have been removed and placed in exile wherever they can be placed perhaps among their friends in the European Union. The next step is to remove the remainder of the supporting groups such as the officers of their security forces and other political allies and others who supported the propaganda and other forces in order to completely de-tooth these terrorist groups. The remaining populations must be required to sign an affidavit declaring their willingness to live under Israeli rule and Israeli law. This declaration must make clear that should any member of their family be found to be working with terrorists; the entire family could face deportation. Once they have accepted these conditions, then they would be permitted to remain residing as resident aliens. Providing they reside within areas which were controlled by Hamas, Islamic Jihad or the Palestinian Authority, then they would most likely be permitted to vote in local city-wide elections. They would not be permitted voting rights in national elections. Their denotation would be as resident aliens. They would be permitted to take any of a number of options. They could attempt to gain citizenship with one of the Arab nations where they have family or friends or they could sign to join a waiting list to become citizens of Israel. This path would be long, arduous and have high standards and expectations. Any deviation from expectations would revoke any application to become Israeli citizens at some point in the future. The path to Israeli citizenship could easily exceed ten years.

 

This is the only solution which will end the merry-go-round of Israeli concessions, Arab demands, negotiation collapse followed by the next administration starting again with Israeli concessions followed by Arab demands then negotiation collapse followed by the next administration… This is a train which inevitably leads to the complete and total destruction of Israel leading soon to the extinction of the Jewish People relegating them to small communities of a thousand or two of Jews as their remnant. The Arabs desire to do to the Jewish People that which they have done to every other civilization they have met, whittle their numbers down to a point where they no longer are of any consequence and can be ignored and threatened with complete extinction of the remnants within the Muslim world. Such has become the fate of the Yazidis and soon the Kurds, also the Zoroastrians, Berbers, Assyrians, Nubians and potentially the various Europeans should Islam continue to grow and reach the turning point where they launch their conquest of the many European nations. Hamas makes their plans open and simple. It is contrived of two main steps. The first is to eradicate Israel and the Jews within. The second is to eradicate the rest of the Jewish People throughout the world while conquering the world and then working to be rid of Christians and all other religions while forcing Islam on as many as are willing to convert. That is as simple as it gets and has been tried before by the Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Nazis, Communists and now it is the Islamist’s turn to go out to conquer the world.

 

The Palestinian Authority, which declared themselves to be the state of Palestine back on January 3, 2013, has a slightly different plan. They will be satisfied if the world forces them to accept the pre-Six Day War lines and from that point their next target will be the Negev and then the Galilee leaving the Israelis only the greater Tel Aviv metro area which they figure with a little assistance from the Arab world can be wiped off the face of the earth before the Israelis can even send up an alarm. They are probably correct and there are those in Europe who would gladly sacrifice all of Israel to the Arabs. The Palestinian Authority leadership also claims that once they have eradicated the Jews from the Middle East, then all will live in harmony and peace because we all know that the Arabs get along so well with one another just as they have in Iraq and Syria for examples. The Islamic empire, be it Arab or Persian, are well on their way to taking control of Western Europe and unless the leaders in Western Europe awaken to their mistaken ways, they will soon be facing Islamic unrest at levels not seen outside of the British Mandate regions in the 1920’s and 1930’s and the Arab riots against the Jews.

 

The four stages of Islamic conquest have been put forth in numerous places and have historic evidence to back their supposition. This is what lies ahead for the Europeans and possibly the American and Canadians should these civilizations not awaken to what is growing within their borders. The good news is that at least Israel is aware of the foul intentions of their neighbors and that any sign of friendship is only due to their needing something after which they will return to plotting the end of the Jewish State. There is no such thing as reaching peace with Islamic entities as their only acceptable terms are complete and total surrender followed by conversion or annihilation of the non-Islamic population. After the entirety of the population has been converted or beheaded, then the purification starts where those suspected converts who are not sufficiently diligent in their practice of Islam will be beheaded as if they were unbelievers all as a message to the others to be more diligent in their adherence to Islam. Then will come the purification of those who worship Islam in a foreign manner. This is where the Shia murder Sunni or the Sunni murder Shia and both murder any other form of Islam until theirs is the only for practiced. From here, there will be other rifts resulting on one side being victorious and the other side killed until eventually one family is what is left. Then intra-family rifts may appear. There are some who claim that Islam will, if permitted to become the sole religion of mankind, purify itself until only one remains because in the end there can be only one. That may be a bit of an exaggeration but we would just as soon not find out.

 

The Arabs are going to be in righteous anger no matter what is done as has been proven on the Gaza border. It has been proven in Iraq, in Syria, and is being proven with the Turkish forces annihilating the Kurds in Syria and probably from there into Iraq. Bashir al-Assad has freely murdered the Palestinian Arabs within his country without one peep of complaint from Fatah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and with the assistance of Hezballah. Iran has murdered many of the Sunni Iraqis and is now assisting in the conquest and slow annihilation of the Kurdish north. There is a direct possibility that Turkey under President Erdogan will result in a war with both Syria and Iraq as he has declared a desire to conquer the lands to include Aleppo, Syria and Mosul, Iraq. Erdogan has also referenced his establishing the reborn Ottoman Caliphate. This is just a small sample of how well the Islamic nations get along and we have yet to mention Yemen, Libya, or Pakistan which all have varying levels of conflicts within their borders. Add to this the visions of empire held by the Ayatollah in Iran who believes that Iran will some day rule all the earth because Shia Islam was promised by Allah that they would be the rulers of the Earth. One has to ask at some point, how many different groups has Allah promised that they will rule the Earth? Is it supposed to be Iran, Turkey, Sunnis, Shias, Saudis, exactly who is it that has the honest and real promise of Allah that they will rule the world? We Jews remember many others who said they would rule the world. Thankfully, we only desire our small little area and will leave the remainder of the world to decide who and how it will be ruled, as long as we can keep our small plot between the Jordan and the Mediterranean. This is all we insist upon and are not even going to demand our old northern border of the Litani River, though that would be considerate (see map below). As becomes obvious, we are not demanding both sides of the Jordan River and the northern border of the Litani River though we do plan, insist even, on retaining the Golan Heights for defensive purposes and to allow our farmers in the Galilee the safety of not being shot by Syria snipers.

 

Modern Israel Borders and Twelve Tribes of Israel

Modern Israel and Twelve Tribes of Israel

 

The Jews in Israel only honestly desire peace. Unfortunately, we have concluded that none of our Arab neighbors will allow us to have peace as long as we insist on ruling ourselves. Since not ruling ourselves and allowing our Arab neighbors to rule us would result in our extinction, which is proven by the world of their leaders, we cannot settle for anything less than defensible borders and as much land as we can properly claim. That amount of land is pictured above. Those borders would permit for our defense, give Israel the military depth, and well defensible borders such that we would be able to prevent any offensive launched against us. These are also the borders we were promised by the British Mandate, the League of Nations and the United Nations, though you would be hard pressed to find any evidence of that from the rhetoric coming from most sources. There will never be any agreement reached with any Arab entity, be it Hamas, Fatah, Jordan, Saudi Arabia or any other Arab entity which would permit Israel to exist in peace without having a near continuous threat of annihilation at the slightest sign of weakness on our part. That could be anything from a weak government with a weak Prime Minister to being struck by a serious flu epidemic rendering a good number of our population of fighting age being sidelined with the disease. We would still always face the possible threat by attack with WMD such as the Iranian promise to launch nuclear weapons to destroy us or the promise by Palestinian leader Jibril Rajoub who vowed, “I swear that if we had a nuke, we’d have used it this very morning.” With such an attitude, is there anyone who doubts why we cannot reach an agreement with the likes as these? The only solution is to grant Israel all which is rightfully ours and leave things at that as anything less will simply leave the door open for further demands and conflict. To avoid constant conflict there must be a winner. Given a choice, we choose Israel being that winner if for no other reason; the world would never accept the six million plus Jews who would be left needing a new home to avoid being slaughtered. If this is not true, then please name the nation willing to accept six million plus Jews arriving all at once. Before you name any Western Nations, look to the references of their response to the Shoah, the Holocaust, and how nation after nation including the United States, Canada, Britain and Spain who all closed their borders to the best of their ability preventing the Jews from escaping the Nazis and then you will know that there is not a single nation who would open their borders to allow Jews refuge.
