The Reason this War is Being Lost

 

It is very difficult to fight a war against a determined foe when much of the population simply could not care less and do not believe that there is any war being waged and that everything can be set right if we just express our regrets for perceived offences and spread sufficient love mixed with heart-felt apologies. There will be a small difficulty getting the governments involved in defending a people who hold protests claiming that we need to accept the enemy as our friends because they are simply misunderstood and that is why they lash out and commit terrorism. When a large portion of the people think that terrorism is caused by our own policies and that if we could just explain that we have changed and are no longer oppressing them, then things could be worked out and all would be roses and daisies. The reality was expressed well by Sir Salman Rushdie who said in an interview with the magazine L’Obs last June, “I am in fundamental disagreement with these left-wing people who do everything to dissociate fundamentalism from Islam. Islam has been radicalized for fifty years. When the people of the Islamic State attack, they do it by saying ‘Allahu Akbar.’ So how can we then say that this has nothing to do with Islam? It must be stopped.”

 

The French government tried a program which was doomed for failure even before the ink dried on the printout. The program, as described by Giulio Meotti, where Islamists desiring to enter this program could be assisted in what was stated as deprogramming as if they had been brainwashed by some cult. The problem is that a Salafist Muslim does not desire to be deprogrammed because they are doing exactly what Allah has commanded of them. They believe everything which was taught them by their Imams who, as the majority of Muslims in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) believe, told them that they were to follow the Medina teachings of the Quran and those teachings which contradicted the softer words of the Mecca Quran were considered abrogated. Abrogated, for the unwashed, means they may as well never have been written, but they do have a purpose which is why they have never been removed, they are there to fool the fools who rely on Muslims to teach them what is written in the Quran. The soft, peaceful words of coexistence are there so they can be quoted by CAIR and other presumably respected Islamic organizations in the Western World. The kind worlds are used to put aside suspicions and to enable Islamic organizations to claim that Islam refutes terrorism and is no different than Christianity and only want to live in peace and tranquility with their neighbors. When somebody does quote something from their holy Quran which purports violence against non-Muslims, they quote a calming Quranic verse and in a soft and reassuring tone lecture how the other person is Islamophobic and that is why they are telling such lies that Muslims commit terror attacks, after all, there have been Christians who committed terrorism against abortion providers and other such attacks. That claim is supposed to make one believe that there are just as many Christians committing terrorism as Muslims. This is propaganda which is defined in the Quran as Taqiyya.

Here is something the citizens of the Western World need to understand, there is a war of civilizations which has been waged in stages for the last fourteen-hundred-years. It began when Muhammad finally decided that his Islamic army could do far more than just robbing caravans and sharing the bounty. The idea likely came to him after his Islamic Army decimated two Jewish tribes living in the vicinity of Medina. He then returned with his army to Mecca where he took out his revenge against the very people who had rejected his religion when he preached there in his youth. After he took Mecca, he then spread across the entirety of the inhabited areas of the Arabian Peninsula and broke out into the Middle East. Then his Islamic army spread taking over Persia and pushed the weakened and failing Byzantine Empire from the Holy Lands continuing until they hit Constantinople whose walls refused their assaults. The larger part of the Islamic army took the path of least resistance across northern Africa. Soon his Islamic Army had conquered the majority of the MENA areas and had crossed the Straight of Gibraltar into Spain, which the Muslims renamed Al-Andalus (see map below).

Eventually the Islamic army reached points where the resistance prevented their further conquest. From Spain that was at Tours where Charles “the Hammer” Martel won the war and sent the Islamic army retreating back into Spain. In Eastern Europe they were stopped twice at the gates of Vienna, the more noted time in history came when the siege of Vienna was relieved by King John III Sobieski of Poland who led his entire army after receiving assurances from his neighboring countries that his Poland would be safe and not invaded. Constantinople did fall once the invention of the siege cannon (see image below) which was utilized by Sultan Mehmed II to finally breach the formerly impenetrable and massive walls of Constantinople. The Muslims renamed Constantinople Istanbul and turned the great cathedral, the Hagia Sophia, into a mosque. This was a practice used often by Islamic conquerors when they took control of religiously significant places, they either changed the structures in question into mosques or built mosques upon these locations as in Jerusalem where they placed the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa Mosque atop the Temple Mount, which they renamed the Noble Sanctuary, as they were unsure of the exact location of the two Jewish Temples and so covered as much area as they could. They have since in the recent past used heavy equipment to dig down and destroy any and all evidence they are able in order to destroy evidence of the previous Jewish presence.

So, why give this information about history as it is all behind us and nobody lives with such dreams of world conquest any longer. Well, that applies to the industrial and advanced Western World but not so much in the rest of the world. One example is North Korea’s Kim Jong-un who desires to take over South Korea and Japan, as a starter, and take down the United States so there will be nothing to prevent him and those he sees as friends, Russia and China, from conquering the world. The Muslims are of a different sort as the Quran tells them that Allah has commanded them to fight the unbelievers until none worship except those who worship Allah.

 

Qur’an (3:83) – “Are they seeking a religion other than Allah’s, when every soul in the heavens and the earth has submitted to Him, willingly or by compulsion?”
Quran (8:38-39) – “Say to those who have disbelieved, if they cease (from disbelief) their past will be forgiven… And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do.”
Quran (9:29) – “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”

 

There is even a special abrogation which speaks specifically about the need for the warriors of Islam to fight and kill Jews otherwise the end times would never come. This is particularly troubling because the majority of Muslims desire the coming of the end times and the perfection of earth as these times are when the armies of Islam will be led to their final conquest of all the peoples of the Earth. But they will not be permitted this time where all they see becomes theirs for the taking in conquest but as this time can only come while they fight the Jews, guess what many Muslims desire to do in order to facilitate the coming of the Mahdi, the coming of the end times, they desire fighting and killing Jews and listening hoping the rocks and trees call out to them, that would be the finest of events they could ever experience. The verse is below.

 

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “The Hour will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them. The Jews will hide behind rocks and trees, and the rocks and trees will say: ‘O Muslim, O slave of Allah! There is a Jews behind me, come and kill him!’ (All the trees will say this except for the Gharqad (box-thorn), for it is one of the trees of the Jews.’” (Reported by Imam Ahmad; it is a Sahih Hadith)

 

But all too many of the political class will continue to speak of Islam as the “religion of peace” because to allow the truth to be known generally would then mean the populace would demand protection and that something be done to force Islam to go through a reformation such as the one Christianity experienced with the coming of the modern world and the obvious conclusion that they could never conquer the world, no single Christian sect could conquer the world and were finally tired of murdering one another. The Jews had that realization when the Judeans were conquered by the Babylonians who were conquered by the Persians who permitted the Jews to return to their lands and rebuild the Holy Temple but only as a Persian province paying their taxes. The Persians were conquered by Alexander and the Greeks who were conquered by the Romans who dispersed the Jews in two separate waves, the second including the renaming of their lands as the Romans were intent on erasing the Jews as they had the Carthaginians before them. The Jews crime was simply, revolts which cost Rome dearly, one of which actually cast the Romans from the lands of Judea for a brief period until the Romans arrived with sufficient legion to decimate any resistance. It is unknown how many tribes of peoples the Romans dispersed in such manner, as the history of the Roman period is incomplete. We know of the Carthaginians because of the Three Punic Wars which are well documented in history and we know about the Judeans because the Jews remain a distinct people to this day and actually managed to return to their ancient homelands under their own rule after more than two-thousand-years.

 

The Islamic armies, as noted in the first map spread over time reaching a maximum sometime between 1000 and 1250 depending on whether you are looking at the eastern or the western end of their empire, their Caliphates. Then came an uprising of a tribe in northeastern Turkey, the Ottomans who spread over the Islamic Caliphate making the new Islamic empire called the Ottoman Empire, which is the empire that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan desires reestablishing. For the record, President Erdoğan is another of those who dreams of empire and eventual world domination for him and his nation which would likely rename itself the Second Ottoman Empire. Below are the maps of the expansion of the Ottoman Empire. Their empire ascended from 1300 through almost 1700.

The Ottoman Empire stood while slowly shrinking until it met its final run when they allied with Germany and the Austria-Hungarian Empire in World War I. They were among the defeated and their remaining areas carved up via an agreement between France and Britain known as the Sykes-Picot Agreement. The slow shrinking of the Ottoman Empire up to World War I is shown in the map below.

After World War I and through World War II and for years beyond until around 1962 the Europeans released their colonies leaving us with the current boundaries existing today. That map can be seen below with dates and whose colonies were whose. The two exceptions are Iran which had a revolution in 1979 and Syria which is in the process of dissolution presently. Another change is the dividing of the Sudan with South Sudan, the non-Muslim areas, breaking off in an attempt to end a civil war which had claimed numerous slaughters. Morocco is currently in conflict with Western Sahara and Iraq and Yemen are currently unstable.

There are numerous other conflicts which can be traced around the MENA nations on virtually every from where Islam exists and in the majority of world conflicts from the Philippines to Europe and Western Sahara and as far south as Nigeria, Mali, Sudan, Somalia and even into northwestern China, Afghanistan, Chechnya, the Caucuses and the Balkans. But your leaders will claim that Islam is the religion of peace and it is their neighbors who must be responsible for these conflicts. The evidence is currently burgeoning throughout Europe where the same terrorist tactics which have plagued Israel since the 1920’s when the idea of a Jewish State was first mentioned in the Balfour Declarations and codified in the San Remo Conference and then the Treaty of Sèvres and finalized with the British Mandate with Israel finally receiving her independence in 1948. Look around the world, read the international news, search Boko Haram and Nigeria or the Philippines and Mindanao or just Islam and wars and allow your own mind figure things for yourself rather than believe the same politicians who lie and break promises like most of us change our socks. Trust yourself and not what you are spoon fed by a media which has been shown to promote an idea of their own making for what you need to know. Ronald Reagan said it best when he stated, “Trust but verify.” Why alter perfection.

Frightening Challenges Facing All in the World

 

Syria is a problem from which there may be no good solution as there is much confusion and has as many facets as a rare gem, each reflecting hostilities on all the others. Every side of this entanglement fights for their own glorification seeking supremacy. Bashir al-Assad is attempting to prove that he is as worthy to carry the torch of leadership as was his father and to the grand level his deceased brother was expected to bestow on the nation as its President. He is attempting to overcome having been always the lesser son whose superior brother died tragically leaving him as the nation’s second choice. His attempts at overachievement could be diagnosed as some twisted form of Napoleonic Syndrome despite his height but due to his being measured by his father as always coming up short of what a leader should be. Add to the mix there is the Islamic State whose leadership fully believe that they are serving a greater purpose and are the proper leadership of all Islam and that they are defining the religion for every Muslim in the world. Their initial military successes have come to a crashing halt and are starting to find their opposition making valid and strong challenges and taking back territories which the Islamic State had initially conquered. Then there are al-Qaeda and other terror groups fighting representing the Sunni opposition to Alawite rule as it is a form of Shia Islam which they oppose and believe are apostates. There are also the Kurdish militias which are mostly concerned with defending their people and are having the greatest challenge coming from Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the President of Turkey, who has claimed to be fighting the Islamic State and other terrorist groups but has used the majority of his troops to attack the Kurdish populations. Additionally there are the Iranian forces which mostly consist of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) who Iran is backing further with Hezballah terror militias from Lebanon. From time to time these two groups attempt to draw Israel into the war by launching artillery or rockets into the Golan Heights. Israel will return fire when they have a solid set of coordinates on which to return fire and which also do not endanger civilians but, other than these, Israel refuses to be drawn into the fighting. Finally there is Russia who is most interested in retaining their two naval ports which are within the Alawite region of Syria which places them in the position of supporting Bashir al-Assad. The recent presumed bombing of targets with chemical weapons such as Sarin Gas which murdered civilians received a strong attack from the United States on the originating airfield with over fifty Tomahawk Cruise Missiles. This drew a strong rebuke by both al-Assad and Russian President Putin.

 

By comparison, the remainder of the Middle East and Northern Africa (MENA) is only slightly less violent and confused. Yemen is also in the midst of a civil war with the Houthis being backed by Iran while Saudi Arabia is supporting the government forces of President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi. Egypt had supported the Saudi Arabian side providing mostly air support but lost faith in the situation and no longer supports anyone in the Yemen civil war. Libya is a complete disaster with tribal forces warring for preeminence while terrorist forces use some contested areas for training recruits readying them for fighting usually elsewhere. At one point al-Qaeda and Islamic State had cleared out territories they used for training but when they came under attack by tribal forces decided to simply leave as they had no reason to take part in the wars in Libya. The Sudan and South Sudan, which declared independence on July 9, 2011, have remained in a state of conflict with the Sudan sending militias forces raiding their southern neighbor as the Sudan has not fully recognized their independence and still believe that most of the people of South Sudan to be infidel or inferiors and see their military actions as a cleansing the territory of enemies of Islam. Somalia continues to be basically without true governance and has become a destabilizing force for its neighboring nations most notably Eretria as well as Kenya and Ethiopia. There are further threats centered on Nigeria with Boko Haram attacking Christian villages and other sites as well as Islamic villages where they kidnap “volunteers” to fight in their Islamic Army. Boko Haram had pledged their allegiance to Islamic State but whether that remains intact is questionable. All of these Islamic disruptions are largely traceable to what was often referred to as the Arab Spring which largely destabilized the entire area of MENA with the exception of places where there existed strong dictatorial governance such as Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States and Egypt which survived due to the military taking back the control they had lost to the Muslim Brotherhood after President Mubarak was forced from office under direct pressure from United States President Barack Hussein Obama. Iraq is still in a state of unrest with the Sunni and Shia segments of the population still facing difficulties resulting from a premature removal of United States forces by President Obama who was fulfilling a campaign promise sparking a low level of conflict. Meanwhile the Kurds are continuing to provide their own defense and act as if under semi-autonomous rule. Then there is a problem where the developed world has been inundated by refugees from these many conflicts plus increasing unrest and instability in Afghanistan leading to the new United States President, Donald Trump, to impose a temporary ban on immigration from seven nations where vetting to identify terrorist entities has proven difficult. This ban has fallen into court challenge and is still to be resolved but odds are the ban will stay in place for the ninety days while new vetting procedures are finalized.

 

Allied loosely with Syria and Iran is another problematic location, North Korea. The erratic leadership by Kim Jong Un who has ordered executions of senior officials including his uncle and also ordered the assassination of his half-brother all in the name of national security but actually to secure his position from any challenges. Kim Jong Un has also been petulant and often challenges the United States claiming that he is prepared to reply to any and every provocation by the erratic leadership of who he calls the nation’s greatest enemy. With the recent attack on the Syrian airfield both Kim Jong Un and Bashir al-Assad have denounced the United States as being imperialistic, colonial and using false excuses to try and extend the autocratic rule of the United States over more of the world through many varied and devious means. Both leaders have recently threatened to attack the United States or its forces and allies wherever and whenever possible and as necessitated by the warlike actions of the United States. The most violent of threats have come from North Korea and have been taken seriously as by many measures, Kim Jong Un is considered to be irrational and possibly not entirely rational and sane. The latest episode is currently playing out as the United States has diverted an aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70) and her strike group from harboring in Australia and is having them head towards the Korean Peninsula passing through the western Pacific. Kim Jong Un has raised the specter of a nuclear strike against the aggressor United States if a posture of war should continue and claims to be watching closely any aggressive behavior by the United States and its allies.

 

A World All Upside Down

A World All Upside Down

 

Add to this the threats by Syria and the displeasure shown by Russian President Putin and there are quite a number of signals which could be interpreted seriously wrong and any one could have devastating consequences. Needless to say, such unrest around the world, nerves frayed and on edge and troops moving and shots being taken on two separate fronts, one in the western Pacific Ocean, Sea of Japan, East China Sea, Yellow Sea and possibly the Bay of Korea while the other is in the Mediterranean Sea, the world is balanced on a razor’s edge unlike anything since the end of the Cold War. We are a far cry from Cuban Missile Crisis stage but the world need take a deep breath and calm itself before somebody somewhere misreads intents and starts something which could quickly fly out of control and lead to serious sets of actions, reactions and counter reactions ending who knows where. Add in the increased amount of terrorism and rising crime rate in much of Europe and that simply adds another tinderbox to the sparks and electrical arcing from friction and frayed wires on too many fronts. You know things are tense when Israel is seemingly a singular place where the level of unrest could be considered calm, at least this far into the year. Being nervous is seemingly in fashion for world leaders currently and that is never a good sign. We need to remember that it was the assassination of a little known Austrian Archduke named Fred, well, you’re right, Ferdinand, but I bet his friends called him not Fred but Archduke Fred, which started the War to End All Wars. That War later was renamed World War I as it led kind of directly to World War II and if there ever should be a World War III and the human race survives, it will be traced in some means to World War II and thus World War I. If we were honest, we would realize that one could trace all warfare back to Cain’s Murder of Abel if we really tried, so don’t be too complacent, the world leadership sure has not been of late. We have too many people thinking they should rule the world or they already rule the world and all of them are mistaken, or at least we had best hope they all realize such. They won’t and we will all be the worse off for it.

Is David’s Sling Really an “Existential Danger”

 

Some Israeli enemies have stated they consider David’s Sling to be an “existential danger” in any way, shape or form? In a word, “No!” David’s Sling is an anti-missile system designed to intercept offensive mid-range ballistic missiles. Some will point to the recent interception of an SA series Russian anti-aircraft missile fired at an Israeli jet while it was on a mission over Syria to strike advanced weapons which Iran was passing through Syria to Hezballah in Lebanon for the expressed usage against Israel. Such a strike is considered perfectly legal under international law as preemptory defensive operations but in the case of preventing weapons from reaching Hezballah there is an even greater validation, preventing weapons, especially weapons of mass destruction, from reaching any terrorist groups. This interception of an anti-aircraft missile while it was on path to strike an Israeli fighter jet would be an argument making David’s Sling as having an offensive capability as in assisting attack aircraft but only if one regards the limited but confirmed use of Israeli airstrikes to prevent the arming of Hezballah, a terrorist group, to be an offensive act. Further, the odds of ever again having an anti-missile system intercept an anti-aircraft missile are unbelievably great as the conditions would necessarily need to be of an extremely specific state as presented themselves during this one event. The normative use of David’s Sling would be against mid-range ballistic missiles such as the longer distance missiles Hezballah currently had gained thousands of such missiles now making all of Israel as well as most of the Sinai Peninsula and one third of Saudi Arabia within their range as well as full on ballistic missiles used by Iran which can reach well into Europe with some determined potentially to reach as far as to Paris. One day the David’s Sling anti-missile system could very well protect one of the capital cities of Europe in theory. David’s Sling also completes the Israeli anti-missile shield systems. In conjunction with Iron Dome, Arrow Systems I and III on Continental Ballistic Missiles, Arrow II on mid-range Ballistic Missiles, David’s Sling on mid-range Ballistic Missiles and Iron Dome on short range missiles, rockets, artillery and mortars; these multi-range systems have a fair amount of overlap providing Israel with a multi-layer and multi-radar-platform interception systems. None of these systems can be launched in an offensive manner to strike at other nations. They are all simply used to protect Israel from rockets and missiles launched at her and her people.

 

Why would the enemies of Israel claim that the David’s Sling is an “existential danger” to them if it has no offensive capability? That is easy to answer and it is the same reason they claim the Arrow Systems and the Iron Dome were also “existential danger” to them, they prevent their weapons systems from inflicting damage on Israel and her people. What is truly sad is that should the Arab League nations bring a motion before the United Nations General Assembly complaining that the new David’s Sling anti-missile system causes them to face an “existential danger,” then with a majority of Europeans and other nations the worldwide voting with them, it would pass by a vote of 164 to 13 with 26 abstentions. But then it was Abba Eban who once claimed about the United Nations General Assembly, “If Algeria introduced a resolution declaring that the earth was flat and that Israel had flattened it, it would pass by a vote of 164 to 13 with 26 abstentions.” Things likely have actually only gotten worse. Truth be told the reality today is such would pass with likely seven or eight votes protecting Israel and eighteen to twenty-three abstentions while the remainder would denounce Israel. Similar percentages would prove true of any of the myriad of United Nations agencies such as the UNHRC or UNESCO to name a pair who have proven particularly guilty.

 

The problem is that while many nations and forces in the world at the end of World War I during a time when many nations particularly from Europe were discarding their colonialism at a measured pace, they agreed that the Jews should have their ancient homelands returned to them. The problem was that soon after they committed to just this scenario, that they gave the British the position of overseeing this venture. As it turns out, they would have been hard pressed to find a less suitable nation to carry out such an assignment honestly. By the time the British had decided they were going to divorce themselves of finding some further means of reducing the amount of land allotted the Jews after first rewarding the Arabs with 78% of the Mandate lands with the formation of Transjordan (Jordan) and then having the Peel Commission attempt to give the Arabs another two-thirds of the land leaving the Jews with one-third of the remaining one-fourth, meaning the Jews were being cut to one-twelfth of the original Mandate, ran into a small problem, the Arabs refused the Peel Commission because it left any land for the Jews. The British then placed everything in the lap of the United Nations who decided to divide the land evenly with two-thirds of the Jewish lands being Negev Desert and almost all the Arab lands being arable but again the Arabs refused because, you guessed it; it still left any land for the Jews. The reason the Arabs, including the Palestinians, can and will never reach any peace agreement with Israel as a whole is because they refuse to accept any land as belonging to the Jews, let alone for a Jewish State. But the evils go deeper than this.

 

The reason anything Israel does, whether in her own defense or as an offer of peace, will always be insufficient and is due to a number of reasons, one for almost every group on the planet. For the Arabs it is because the lands can never be relegated to anybody, but especially the Jews, because the lands were once conquered by the Arabs. For the Muslims it is because no lands ever conquered by the Muslims can ever be permitted to fall under anybody else’s control. This is why the Muslims still claim that the Spanish are occupying Andalusia and make claims that they will reunite Andalusia with its Muslim heritage very soon. This is the essence of the India Pakistan war as the Pakistanis claim one-third of India as rightfully theirs as its Muslim conquerors and thus its rightful owners. The truth is in some Muslim perspectives the entirety of Earth was once Islamic and they have been retaking that which is rightfully theirs because Allah told them the entirety of the world was theirs. Of course the world was somewhat smaller in Muhammad’s view around 625A.D. Further, the majority of European nations look upon allowing the Jews to have their own nation was their most grievous of errors in the past century when they agreed upon this action between the end of World War I and through the early 1920’s. Oh, that’s correct, by the early 1920’s the Europeans and the Arab nations under the leadership of King Faisal and the leaders of the recently defeated Ottoman Empire all agreed to allow the Jews to return to their Biblical homelands, all of their Biblical homelands which were presumably the lands placed under English control called the British Mandate. Of course the British found some interesting verbiage which they turned into making the vast majority of the land into an Arab state and called it necessary and proper, British proper of course. The world was already turning away from their promise and were all very cozy and comfortable with the British rearrangement such that even the League of Nations saw no need to complain about the twisting of the wordings in the San Remo Conference which was the original document setting aside land for the Jewish State in 1922.

 

Left side map depicts the division of the Promised Land amongst the tribes and right side map compares the modern promised land from the Jordan west to the Mediterranean Sea compared to the maximum of area during King David’s and King Solomon’s reigns.

 

Skipping to the modern era and the world would simply have no compunction in allowing the destruction of Israel. The Arabs might lower the price of oil as a congratulatory move of renewed friendship. Then again, as it has often been noted by even some diplomats, Israel and the Jews are behind every problem in the Middle East and possibly the entire world and maybe even behind why all the galaxies other than Andromeda are flying away at an ever increasing rate. That’s right, the Jews and Israel invented Dark Energy, okay, not exactly, but there will be some who will link to it here and claim it must be true, it is on the Internet. You list Israel and the Arab Palestinians as the greatest problem facing the globe and for only one reason; you know the result will destroy Israel. You translated and excitedly realized and concurred with what Yasser Arafat broadcast in his “stages” message in Arabic where he stated, “Since we cannot defeat Israel in war, we do this in stages. We take any and every territory that we can of Palestine, and establish sovereignty there, and use it as a springboard to take more. When the time comes we can get the Arab nations to join us for the final blow against Israel.” You grabbed this as a revelation of the final solution coming to fruition and as the solution to your problem with Jews ruling themselves.

 

Your placing the existence of Israel as your most pressing problem in the world would be so laughable if it were not so tragic. Your hatred of Jewish freedom and self-rule and your desire to finish what Europe bred for over a century and a half with Inquisitions, pogroms, Purifications and attempted genocidal cleansing with a final sweep removing Israel even if at the cost of 10,000,000 Jews or more depending on the length of time it will take. This is your most driving force between Europe, the Arab World, much of Africa, a fair part of Asia, possibly the majority of the Russian population and likely close to a third of the people in the Americas. Israeli existence is such an anathema to potentially more than half, nay, two-thirds of the people throughout the planet that it is placed as the most immediate necessity to solve over such as the meat-grinding bloodshed in Syria, a megalomaniac ruling Turkey with plans on incorporating northern Syria and Iraq into Turkey expressly for the purpose of ridding the lands of the Kurdish People, another omnipotent leader in Russia seriously considering reestablishing his nation’s dominance over large swaths of Eastern Europe and Central Asia, an entire set of loonies in China seeking to dominate one of the busiest sea trade routes through the South China Sea that they are building Islands and then exclaiming to have discovered and acquired a whole new island never seen before claiming it was there all of a sudden like and we didn’t do anything, the hopefully last in a line of ever growing mentally unstable lunatic ruling the northern areas of the Korean Peninsula where the people are starving while he murders selected generals and family members while playing with tossing nuclear weapons around the globe while building such and the rockets with which to deliver them and to top this list off there are a whole bevy of religious fanatics with nuclear weapons on their minds and where the top Mullah leads immense crowds of the people on selected Fridays to pick up the pace from the other Fridays where these crowds chant “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” while this country is mobilizing for a war to take control of the entirety of the Arab oil wealth followed by spreading Shia Islam to every Sunni in the world and then everyone else. That is a partial list and does not mention any potential problems with the new American leader, the refugee issue in Europe, the war in Yemen, Libya, or Somalia plus dictators taking control in many nations with disastrous results as in Venezuela and the new Freedom Index released recently published by The Heritage Foundation showing yet another year of a world less free than the one before it. Israel, a free democracy run under the rule of law is the world’s biggest problem? Puleeze!
