Presidents Barack Hussein Obama and François Hollande Next Cooperative

 

Presidents Barack Hussein Obama with the full and forceful support of Secretary of State Kerry and the full support of the plethora of advisors including but likely not limited to Anne Patterson, Assistant Secretary of the Bureau of Near East Affairs, Frank Lowenstein, Special Envoy for Israeli-Palestinian Negotiations, Chris Henzel, Director of Israel-Palestinian Affairs, Andrew Lederman, Political Officer of Israel-Palestinian Affairs, Rob Malley, Special Assistant to President Barack Obama and White House Coordinator for MENA (Middle East and North Africa), and Steven Galpern, National Security Council Director of Israeli-Palestinian Affairs will silently move to support the French initiative originally crafted by former French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius whose full support of all things Palestinian is well known. The Obama Administration will probably press France’s new Foreign Minister, Jean-Marc Ayrault, who has backtracked some from the original threat in the name of a peace process. President Obama gave his hand away when he first lowered expectations with the President, Vice President and Secretary of State all claiming that they had accepted that there would be no two state solution to the Arab (Palestinian)-Israeli peace process. The one thing which should trouble any sane person is that the Obama Administration, as listed above, has at the least a half dozen advisors, managers, and whatever one might conceptualize all basically hovering over Israel; and all with these positions dwell on how much Israel must sacrifice for a peace with a guarantee of terror attacks. What none of these “experts” refuse to admit to the public is that the Arab World refuses to accept the existence of Israel and no matter what may be agreed with, there will be no end to the violence as long as there exists a Jewish State or any Jews residing in any of the lands currently included. This includes anywhere in Jerusalem, anywhere in Tel Aviv, Eilat, Haifa, Akko or anywhere even inside the Green Line, period. This does not bother anybody as long as there may be a Nobel Prize for any deal forced upon Israel.

 

Towards these potential eventualities, Secretary of State Kerry met with the French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault and numerous other European diplomats to work towards a stringent and forceful proposal which meets the critical positions of Israel forced back within the 1949 Armistice Lines, the Green Line, forcing close to a million Jews homeless and a large percentage jobless and all of the Temple Mount and Western Wall under Arab Palestinian control which would be, exactly as things were under Jordan, completely out of the reach of Jews and Jacob’s Tomb once again utterly destroyed along with a number of rebuilt Synagogues completely defiled and destroyed with Arab Palestinians dancing in celebrations. Pictures of the last episode which destroyed Jacob’s Tomb (Kever Yosef) are included below. The pictures of this holy site of paramount history and importance as Joseph (Yosef) demanded that his bones be taken from Egypt when the Exodus came and have them reinterred within Eretz Yisroel and that request was honored centuries later when the prophesized Exodus, like the current ingathering, were all prophesized. The Arabs have already declared numerous Jewish and Christian holy sites which predate Islam to be awarded the Arabs (Palestinians) despite their unmistakable history. Included amongst these holy sites are Rachel’s Tomb (renamed as an Arab Sultan’s tomb), the Church of the Holy Sepulture, the Church of the Nativity, the Cave of the Patriarchs and others and they are attempting to have UNESCO award both the Western Wall and Temple Mount as exclusively Islamic holy sites. All of these actions are to either make all holy sites Islamic or destroyed with no middle Ground as the Palestinians refuse to allow any holy sites other than Muslim designated sites. Such has been Islamic actions as with the giant standing Buddhas representing Vairocana and Sakyamuni which the Taliban destroyed in the Bamyan Valley.

Meanwhile, President Obama has little if any care for these sites, the Jews residing in what have become major cities and business hubs employing thousands of Arab Palestinians who live in Judea and Samaria (West Bank), a little fact which is never discussed. Little known that Ahava Dead Sea Products Cosmetics and Soda Stream both relocated within the Green Line as a response to the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanction) Movement to avoid conflicts and over a thousand Palestinian Arabs had to be let go due to security situations which would have required excessive government intervention both within Israel as well as from the semi-autonomous Palestinian Authority which refused to be forthcoming as they were more interested in the public relations of pressing the claim that Israel refused to allow Palestinians to retain their jobs. These Palestinians lost their jobs because the BDS Movement pressed these companies into relocating; the same BDS Movement started and financed by the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) which is simply an arm of the Palestinian Authority (PA) as their project to attempt to force Israelis from their homes and force the Jobs run and owned by Israelis out of the areas they claim they desire initially as their initial step after Gaza in their war to destroy Israel.

 

None of these realities matter to President Obama as his desire is to force a peace on Israel by any means required just as he will close the Guantanamo Bay detention camp as these were amongst the top promises made during the initial campaign where President Obama was initially elected. The reality of what forcing a peace on Israel will accomplish, which is absolutely nothing, when Vice President Joe Biden was meeting with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas within a day of a terror attack which murdered an American citizen and though Abbas made a limp apology and refused to denounce the attack and after their meeting Abbas and numerous PA and PLO officials applauded and gave serious acclaim to the terrorists. This has been the modus-operandi of the PA and PLO as well as Hamas with the naming of sports centers, camps, schools and streets amongst other structures after terrorists with the larger naming go to those terrorists who have murdered the most Israelis. This past week there was the charm offensive with the PLO charm agent and senior member of the PLO Executive Committee, Hanan Ashrawi, who met with numerous senior advisors and Middle East experts in President Obama’s Administration seeking promises for added United Nations pressures to end the “occupation” and for the United States to refuse any Israeli request that the United States not use their Veto as the French resolution is placed before the Security Council. Ms. Ashrawi also pressed for the original French proposal which set a deadline for negotiations to work establishing a new Arab State for the self-proclaimed Palestinians with the 1949 Armistice and pre Six Day War Green Line borders should Israel not reach an agreement which the PA accepts. Many wonder what reason the PA would have to accept any deal with their maximalist demands being the default to be applied if they remain, as they have in all previous talks, stanchly refusing every offer knowing that they get the entire ball of wax with half of Jerusalem as their capital city. Should they get United Nations Security Council Chapter Seven and not need to settle for either a Chapter Six or a General Assembly Resolution (which they have numerous of these unenforceable General Assembly Resolutions from over the years) which are unenforceable, they would have the whole world to back them with enforcement this time. They have worked for years to internationalize the conflict in order to use international military forces to enforce whatever monstrosity comes from the United Nations.

The one thing which appears to have escaped everybody is how will the militaries of the supporting nations deal with terrorists attacks when the multinational forces and the initial Americans, Frenchmen, British and whomever else has their nations’ troops vulnerable to attacks from the PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Islamic State, al Qaeda and who knows who else places their troops in such a vulnerable position. The United States need only look back at the events after the United States and allies had vanquished the Iraqi military and were simply assisting with security while a new governance had risen from the ashes like the proverbial Phoenix. There was a rub that not all of the citizens and others in theater were on the same page as the allied forces. That resulted in the ever increasing lethality of IEDs (Improvised Explosive Device) and ambushes cost the United States and its allies thousands of lives making the entire intervention go from Hero to Zero overnight. Deploying American troops in such a scenario would simply be too costly and gain population rejection almost from the start and all the more so definitely should GIs start being ambushed while deployed against Israel. The real disaster would be anti-Semitism which would build up as Israel would ultimately be blamed for any deaths should the deployment of troops prove necessitated as the media would claim that it was Israeli resistance to what was declared universally as a fair and just resolution to a seriously impossible and intractable problem. The reality would be the demands for allied troops to protect the Arab Palestinians from Israeli interventions and punishments meted out by Israel Defense Forces in response to terrorist attacks with return counter-fire and potentially incursions made to prevent known terror threats which would be explained as legitimate operations as the original occupation from 1948 had still not been resolved and the remainder of the Jews occupying Islamic land had to be resolved exactly as the 1967 occupations. What many are not aware, the Arab Muslims claim that any lands which were ever trod by a Muslim must forever remain as Islamic lands. This is behind their claims to Andalusia which to you and me is better known as Spain, Portugal and southern France all the way to Tours where the Islamic invaders were finally vanquished. Of course there are also the Islamic claims that the United States and Italy, or more accurately, Vatican City and Rome must be liberated from the infidel and purified with fire. Many of these claims are borderline to actually delusional but that has never stood in the way of Islamic claims to lands across the globe as their desire and intent is to continue to slaughter the disbelievers until the entire world is Muslim, their particular kind of Muslim, Sunni or Shia or some other groups or Arab or Hashemite or Saudi or Alawite or virtually any existing group of Muslim believers as each believe they are the true and sole possessors of the divine message as the Quran dictates and is interpreted.

 

All of this relates back to what some claim was an Arab verse and other credit the Bedouins which related an order of allegiances which goes something like the below quote.

انا على أخوي وأنا وأخوي على ابن عمي وأنا وابن عمي على الغريب

Me against my brothers, me and my brothers against my cousins, me and my brother and my cousins against the world.

A longer version we once had referenced went through the entirety of the hierarchal structure starts the same and continues as follows, “Me against my brothers, me and my brothers against my cousins, me and my brother and my cousins against our family, my family against the tribe, our tribe against the nation, our nation against the world.” Following such a structure the fighting continues until one attains the base allegiance, namely unto oneself. This reasoning is reminiscent of the Highlander series where a universal group of immortals must battle each other out beheading every opponent until, as the theme claimed, until there is only one. It does not take much to realize the complete insanity of such a structure for basing a society. Islam takes this as there can be only one state with one religion the world over and there can be no deviation from the instructions in the Quran which demands that Islam become universal, and the struggles witnessed between the Shia and Sunni one immediately sees where this could lead as each group claims the other to be an apostate and thus to be eradicated or forced to convert to the other form of Islam. One can only wonder how selective could things get with Syria as a prime example as the many Sunni groups fight against the Alawites of Bashir al-Assad while also fighting one another for dominance with the many factions each holding their own territories and fighting the others making temporary truces in order to strike another only to be fighting one another the next week and in the end there may simply be nothing left to inherit as everything has been destroyed, and Syria is rapidly reaching that point with Iraq not far behind.

 

But the Obama administration has as their goal to assist with the destruction of Israel replacing the Jewish State with a war between Hamas and the PA/PLO whichever one wins then facing Hezballah or Islamic State or both as again each believes they are the sole true form of Islam and there must be one pure form having purged the world of the other, every last other. Israel this year, Europe within the decade and then where? The United States, Russia, Canada, who can tell? The one truth we must learn before it is too late, whichever Islamic group eventually proves to be the victor, they will enforce a world where the Quran and Hadiths as they interpret them are the only knowledge one will be permitted and surrender to Allah and whoever claims to be his most strident supporter giving over one’s will to live, other than that, the rest is easy. What will be the result if American men, women and service members, many simply young men and women barely old enough to vote are slaughtered in the name of Islam while they are presumably guarding those who want to murder them from the Israelis who only wish to live without having to constantly look over one’s shoulder for the next crazy with a Kitchen knife or pair of scissors trying to stab them simply because they are different, and that includes anyone not recognized by the person stabbing even if they are Arab or Muslim or both Arab and Muslim and just unknown to the youth with a death wish stabbing their way into paradise just as the Imam and PA/PLO instigators incited them.

Reflective Spurs Reactive

 

Reflective and reactive sound similar enough and both are applied to an action that many people do not bother to differentiate between the two, they just dismiss them as two ways of getting to a similar result. Part of the reason behind this is our Western society has become so results oriented that the method of reaching results have been so compromised that we seem to believe that the means really do not matter. Such thinking is sloppy and undisciplined and the reason that many see no difference between reflective and reactive if they were to produce similar results. This reasoning, or lack thereof, is what leads many to measure the terror war now being waged against Israel by the numbers of dead largely and the numbers injured to a lesser extent. This is where the fact that more Arabs have died and less Jews that Israel must be doing something immoral as results are all that matter.

 

So let us take a moment and break down the particulars and discover the real importance of the differences between reflective and reactive. The dictionary defines reflective as “given to, marked by, or concerned with meditation or deliberation.” The dictionary defines reactive as “pertaining to or characterized by reaction, pertaining to or characterized by reactance.” Simplifying this down an act which is reflective is premeditated, planned and intentionally performed and reactive is unplanned reflex performed due to an external threat, stimulus, peril, provocation or incitement. In any situation where there are two related actions in a situation, one reflective and the other reactive, there is only one order the two acts can occur. The reflective act must be the initiating act and the reactive must be the following action as a response to the reflective or intentional action. These are the exact order which has been occurring in Israel with the terrorist actions being the reflective act, as they are premeditated and planned to assault Israelis, preferably Jews. Despite the target being general in nature, the action is still planned even if not to the exact target and the reaction to these assaults where somebody is attempting to stab innocent civilians and is stabbing one victim and then attempts to attack another and it is evident they will continue doing so until prevented, spurs the reactive action which often is a police or military individual or an armed civilian and often thus results in the death of the terrorist. Should the Arab terrorists, instead of deciding one morning to go and stab as many Israelis as possible until prevented from continuing, decide that there is more to living than there is to rewards in some paradise gained through murdering others; the entire pyramid would collapse from the bottom up. Unfortunately, these youths get themselves so worked-up and convinced they will receive rewards in heaven if they die while committing murderous terror actions such that the pleasures, often sexual in nature, will increase with the number of Jews or Israelis that they murder, with partial credit for maimed and injured; they have a double inspiration, one to murder Israeli civilians or soldiers (yes some attack armed soldiers or law enforcement officers as they just want to go straight to Islamic heaven) and continue attacking until martyred, killed to end their stabbings spree.

 

Some of the reactive actions have, as well as the terrorist act, have been caught on surveillance cameras. Part of the reason that more terrorists have been killed than Jews have been murdered is because some of these untrained terrorists attack people causing grievous wounds but survivable and the terrorist refuses to stop even if shot and injured. They continue to try and attack and attack until stopped permanently; they really live little other choice. Below is a video from October 13, 2015, where the terrorist makes his initial strike driving his car across the oncoming lane striking pedestrians until hitting a bus stop. The terrorist then exits the car with a hatchet or hand axe and starts smashing those he had just run over and then continues on to attack another victim when an armed civilian arrives and shoots the terrorist who continues to attempt to attack as he gets shot a second and third time. He still attempted to get up and after being shot again and eventually appears to be trying to return to his car either to escape or grab yet another weapon. He eventually died from his wounds if memory serves us well. He was driving his company provided vehicle and was presumably on the clock working and had a well-paying job within Israel inside the Green Line. One would have thought he might be the poster for success for coexistence between Jews and Arabs working together for the same company with equal standing, but apparently in some instances such opportunity is no contest against the constant feed of instigation by the Palestinian Authority on Arab radio and television broadcast from the autonomous Arab areas in Judea and Samaria and on social media. The instigation is a tried and useful method as the media provocations used are the exact same as was used by the Arab authorities in the late 1920s and through the 1930s by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem both from Arab areas and from strong radio facilities in the Balkans aimed into the Arab world with the assistance of the Nazis with whom the Mufti spent World War II. We discussed this at some greater depth in our article The New Anti-Semitism Palestinianism.

 

 

 

 

The difference between reflective actions as the instigator of reactive acts has to be used as a filter upon reading or hearing the news, editorials, commentary or anything regarding the Arab Israeli Conflict; and that is what this is as the entirety of the Arab world has been working to destroy Israel since the very morning Israel was founded in May 15, 1948 when seven Arab national armies invaded Israel intent on a genocidal conflict which they believed they would win in a matter of days if not hours. The war dragged on for close to two years before a final armistice was hammered out. The end result was Israel had lost control over parts of Judea and Samaria along with Eastern Jerusalem to Jordan and Gaza to Egypt. More wars followed and in each case Israel not only survived but took back the remainder of Judea and Samaria and the remainder of Jerusalem as well as Gaza. Israel also took the Golan Heights and the Sinai Peninsula. Israel made peace with Egypt and returned the Sinai but Egypt refused any offer to reoccupy Gaza allowing it to be returned to Israel as it was within the original boundaries. When peace was made with Jordan, Jordan relented the rest of Judea and Samaria as well as Jerusalem ending Jordanian occupation of Israeli lands thus ending the occupation of the lands which were a part of Israel on the morning before the combined armies attacked. The Mufti of Jerusalem encouraged the Arabs to leave Israel promising them within a few weeks they would return to a vanquished Zionist entity and share the spoils with the conquering heroes but something did not quite turn out as the Mufti had promised. The Jews lost the war as far as they lost territory, Gaza and East Jerusalem along with parts of Judea and Samaria but had survived and in a celebration of that survival they referred to the victory inaccurately as the Israeli War for Independence. The spirit of the latest Intifada, terror war, instigations or whatever one wishes to call these assaults on civilians by terrorists seeking dead Jews and their own martyrdom can be reflected in the images below which tell the tale more adequately than words could ever do.

Israel had independence at midnight and one second on May 15, 1948 and at that point, before the Arab armies invaded at dawn, the Israeli border included all of the Negev including Gaza and the Blue Line as the border with Lebanon is denoted and the Jordan River. The lands that the Arabs claim they lost to the Israelis because of the patrician as described in the General Assembly Resolution 181 which was the United Nations suggestion of a solution of granting the Arabs a second home sharing the lands which were promised the Zionists for them homeland after Jordan was cut from their original lands. When the Arab League refused that offer as they demanded what they are still demanding, including Mahmoud Abbas and the rest of the Palestinian Authority, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezballah, Islamic State, al-Qaeda, Iran, Saudi Arabia and many more nations, terrorist groups, NGOs, European politicians, American and Canadian Politicians, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon (or at least by his actions he favors such) and who knows who else or cares as there are sufficient known forces that any others really make little difference. The thing necessary to remember is that the Arab Armies attacking Israel that morning was a reflective action as any unprovoked attack of those proportions can be nothing else as accidentally attacking with multiple divisions of militaries from numerous nations’ rules accidental encroachment of Israel’s borders out of the equation and certifies such as a planned execution which was further backed by the threats made by the Mufti of Jerusalem on Jordanian and Egyptian radio and Arab radio within Israel played his threats and promises to those Arabs who would vacate Israel so the conquering armies could simply slaughter everybody they found. This proved true when after stopping a bus of doctors and nurses the Arab forces executed them on the spot as impure infidels not worthy of life. The reality is the Arab Palestinians led by Mahmoud Abbas have the blessings of numerous other national Arab leaders, Iran and nearly uncountable Arabs around the world which is why the cartoon below is so accurate.

Yes, we know Israel has won every war and has nuclear weapons just as Iran will have produced by the time President Obama leaves office and a superior number should another American President be chosen by sloganeering and pretending the world has not been affected by the absence of American leadership and continue the policies of ignoring the world and going back to sleep as was the standard by the United States only given up due to the Cold War. What the American people choose will have either a willing to take back their mantle of the lone super power or soon be destroyed by Iranian nuclear weapons used in a far more effective manner if you only have four or five EMP producing weapons with only an unsteady delivery system. The main wish is that the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) do not explode into an even greater conflagration as such a revolt against the governments throughout the MENA nations and potentially result in an even greater flow of refugees fleeing broken nations with no effective governance and lawlessness beyond measure. The problem is such uncontrolled waves of immigration could just as easily be bringing terror operatives and instigators along with the refugees as Europe is realizing to their horror. One can only pray that there are sufficient numbers of refugees who are willing to turn in any terror or organizers from terror groups such that the lack of screening does not cause many people’s worst fears, both within Europe and others outside who would hate to see all the art and other great works and historic buildings destroyed simply because they insult Islam according to some crazed Imam such as the one with the knife pictured above.

The Israeli Political Class Image Problem

 

Before getting to the meat of the article I would like to praise something Israel not only got right, carries it off without any hitches and actually accomplished their objective. The article that put a smile on my face and a song in my heart was Secret operation in Syria to rescue last remaining Jewish family. Their mission was to rescue the last Jewish family in the Syrian city of Aleppo. The one thing Israel does extremely well repeatedly throughout her history starting with being the recipient of the European Jews who largely were expelled penniless and then over the next decade had to receive the Jews from across MENA (Muddle East and North Africa) who were also largely relieved from their wealth as well. There was the raid on Entebbe Airport in Uganda and others throughout the years, some which may eventually be covered in books after those involved feel comfortable and the government also allows information to be released. There was one error made but that was by officials after they reached Israel which will hopefully be remedied successfully and all necessary actions be completed as successfully as this operation. The admission on there uncomforting decision being made immediately public is another credit to Israel for having the openness just as was obvious in our historic record which even revealed the slightest mistakes and flaws in the greatest heroes in the Bible, even Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Jacob and Moses had their flaws revealed even if they were not necessary to the story and solely for the sake of honest recounting.

 

The idea that there are a noticeable number of our current leaders having flaws in their performances and even some in characters, all of which prevent programs which fully reflect Torah and the rest of our laws, such as not settling all the land Hashem promised which all reflects as believable, just as the greatest Jews in Torah and the Bible were flawed though nowhere near with the rate, consistency and severity as our leaders today. Often Israeli leaders appear to be more concerned with their image out in the rest of the world than in performing their supposed assigned task of representing the people they gave promises in exchange for their votes. What their actions are responsible for is made evident in the video below where an English interviewer constantly jumps to interrupt Naftali Bennett shoving the words from virtually every source possible down Mr. Bennett cherry picking and going through these quotes almost without an actual pause to allow Bennett to speak his mind. It becomes obvious that the interviewer chose Naftali Bennett in order to make the point that Israelis are conflicted and that they have no answers to the accusations from the world at large and there are quotes from throughout the range from Prime Ministers to Shin Bet retired commanders, to Presidents all who have given lip service to the two state solution. The entire ambush was to make the record show that almost every Israeli who has been or is in power has supported the formation of the two state solution and that any Israeli who does not support such is a racist, worthless, genocidal lunatics who have no answers and are incapable of even completing a single cogent response. The fact that the interviewer jumped the microphone almost immediately after Naftali Bennett began to express a thought not permitting his putting thought to word to be completed as doing so would have presented a second opinion but that was not the intent, the intent was to ambush Bennett and short rift any pro-Israel record or argument and simply was to spend the entirety of the ugly interview in order to present quotes and other international demands or voted at the General Assembly as valid arguments which are so obviously valid that any refutation must necessarily be pounced upon and denied access to the airwaves.

 

 

 

 

The interview begs the question of what are the most obvious and pressing problems and fatal challenges which make the two state solution impossible to implement. The easiest fruit is to simply quote Mahmoud Abbas speaking in Geneva to a special session called just to give him a platform to denounce Israel for not relenting the lands they have occupied for the last sixty-seven years. We covered this on November 3, 2015, And Abbas Finally Speaks the Truth About Israel replete with the necessary math and the realization of the real intentions and ideas which drive Abbas in his quest against all of Israel. Mahmoud Abbas will be credited with having slipped and actually meaning 1967 and not sixty-seven years ago and thus it will be brushed off as Abbas having a senior moment and misspeaking. The reality indicates Mahmoud Abbas finally spoke the truth in a location where he was recorded and the world could finally bear witness to the bald truth, but the world does not want to hear the truth any more than the interviewer would allow the truth to even be stated during a recorded faux-interview we depicted above. Abbas has often made similar remarks, as had Yasser Arafat before him, when speaking to the Arabs in person or via radio or television. This has also been the central argument which began when the two men with the assistance of the KGB formed the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) in 1964; a full three years before the Six Day War which should get many people to realize the vacuous line of reasoning that now says that the sole aim is to retrieve the lands lost in the Six Day War which the resonating call heard at all too many protests, especially on campuses across the Western World, where it is often chanted, “From the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea, Palestine must be Free!” This slogan leaves no room for Israel and is deadly accurate as to the sole peace Abbas desires to grant Israel, a genocidal cleansing of all of Israel and her Jews declaring such as the second Shoah while threatening to murder the remaining Jews of the world as they join the growing call of the soldiers of Islam to awaken from their slumbers and bring about their blessed age by slaughtering the Jews and all non-Muslims. Their description of these times has the rocks and trees calling to them saying according to Sahih Muslim Book 041, Number 6985:

 

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.

 

That brings us to the root of the problem. There are numerous Israelis who believe that if only Israel would surrender the right combination of lands and would be sufficiently subservient to the Arabs that they would be satisfied and allow the Israelis to live in peace. They believe that should Israelis just act in a particular manner that they would find some happy magic formula which would allow for Jews to live in peace and everybody would live happily ever after. These Jews would also call for the planting of groves of babble trees as they would shelter us from Islamic violence. Never mind that suggestion being defeatist and leading to every Jew needing to plant their own Gharqad, tree or set of such trees. Doing so ignores all the violence which accompanies any sign of Israeli weakness which is launched whenever the Arabs believe they have seen weakness and even the slightest bit of defeatism as they allocate such actions as a lack of resolve by the Jews and simply another reasoning to apply pressure to gain an even larger surrender eventually leading to the complete defeat of the Jews and their desired goal of chasing the Jews from all of what they see as solely their lands. One can trace ever increase in the levels of violence to a defeatist statement which promised simply another surrender in the face of their violence. The status-quo on the Temple Mount is another example of Jews backtracking when faced with Arab insistence or actions which are the initial claims that the lands do not belong to the Jews and we must therefore surrender further lands as we have to be getting close to the magic formula where some form of equilibrium will be reached. Such statements are defeatist on their own formulae as they recommend some willingness for Jews to surrender more of Eretz Yisroel in order to attain a balance which even on its face proves does not exist. One cannot blame the violence on Israeli actions as often the violence follows words which feed the psyche that believes the Jews to be interlopers unworthy of any claim to these Arab conquered lands as all non-Muslims were effectively removed over the millennia and that it is only Arab loss of faith and face that the Jews were permitted because of perceived Arab weakness.

 

The truth be told, there does exist a formula for existential peace with the Arabs which is really not much of peace as it is a surrender. The peace which Israeli leaders appears to have infected their thinking when they achieve high office or recent retirement is that if only all the land were to be surrendered followed by pleading for the Arabs to pretty please allow us even a postage stamp sized piece of land that then all would be well. These masters of surrender never permit themselves or others to realize the basic truth that the Arabs who are dedicated to terrorism and dealing in death will continue to be the basis of Arab education turning out radicalized teachers from the main Arab factions, Hamas and Fatah. The reality is that there is only a slight difference between Fatah and Hamas and of these two there can only be one in the end, and that will be whichever of the two claims proves to unseat the Israeli claims more completely. The Fatah is mostly nationalist and secular while Hamas is Islamist religious based resistance. Eventually Hamas will win the struggle between these two entities for the hearts and minds as their argument is far more persuasive and the stronger of the two attitudes at their base. Furthermore, the religious fanatics are far more committed to their foes defeat and would never have given even a single line of validation through their negotiations. These religious true believers fuel the fanaticism which leads to homicidal suicide bombings and other forms of terror producing mass casualties which have proven in the past to have gained contrition and erosion of the Jewish positions and thus reinforce the religious fanaticism over the nationalist position.

 

The two Arab foes, Hamas and Fatah, have used these models most effectively with the nationalists pressing the idea that one last concession will bring the entirety of the conflict to a close and while this is being debated in the Knesset and then the following of the fanaticism starts entering a series of violent acts which removes any thought of a peaceful turning over of a limited piece of land and having the level of acts to be deescalated. The reality is that timidity only reinforces the Arab feelings that a complete victor is at hand. This cycle of promise offered, snatched away due to violence, the offer now part of status-quo, new demands of even greater amounts of land followed by greater violence escalating as necessary to force Israeli surrenders. There is only one way to end this slow retreat and that is to refuse to retreat any further and start annexing lands enjoined by the one thing which scares the Arabs the most, continue to call for more surrender. It was Jewish willingness to surrender Jewish rights upon the Temple Mount to the point now that Jews are restricted from visiting the Temple Mount in groups larger than at most a dozen Jews. This permits maximum use of the screamers, biters, and other riotous behavior closing down the Temple Mount to all Jewish visitations. These bowings to Islamic supremacy at our most holy of sites has led directly to Arabic prayers being the sole praying permitted thus refusing praise of Hashem and replacing them with praises of Allah on the Temple Mount with any Jew thought to be praying now resulting in their arrest, full investigative hearings and too often closure of the Temple Mount to Jews entering this holy place at all due to Islamic rioting. It is the permitting of such fanaticisms that has placed Israel in the defense world-wide and behind the BDS campaign which could be nipped at its roots if the Jews would react to such limitations by broadening the personal freedoms for Jews and all others at this holiest of holy places and anything else is purely inviting trouble and an eventual Jewish defeat.

 

 

Backsliding will empower Arab demands and encourage Arab violence. Only exercising our rights and exercising our claims to the lands will end the Arab attempts at supremacy within Israel and in forcing the Jews into Dhimmitude which in the end will bring on the death of the Jewish State replacing it totally by an Arab State in which Jews are Dhimmis taking a subservience to Arab Muslims or facing death, neither of which is acceptable. The first and most important step Israel must start with is speaking our known truths and acting upon them at the same time. This must be followed by our annexation of the lands; something the Arabs will understand and bring them to offer actual compromises and not simply a line of demands from the Jews of Israel. These demands are a direct result of timidity and talk of an approaching compromise as nothing ends any hope of an actual settlement faster than negative public opinion which can take a reasoned and proud Zionist and make him appear weak and ineffectual in an interview where he should have insisted he be permitted to talk and not simply be a prop for the reading of a list of ignorant and an unproductive outing where the Zionists again appeared cowed. Our cause would have been better supported had Naftali Bennett demanded to be heard and when shouted down once again and interrupted after two or three words have threatened to end the interview leaving the British moderator without a foil which made his arguments, his blatant anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism and anti-Israel stances more believable than had he been left with an empty studio. I realize that Naftali Bennett is a great supporter of Zionism but when you are being so used one must take actions other than polite demanding your time to express your vision and not just sit there and take insulting breaking in on ones answer every time such that the interviewer had more microphone time than did his guest which is always a sad state of affairs. This interview was an even worse showing than the last Republican debate, another instance where the rules were twisted to put on display the brilliance of the moderators rather than investigate the candidate positions. Demanding fair treatment is not rudeness but rather often a response to bullying rudeness. Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade, the presumed military wing of Abbas’s Fatah, lauded praises upon the terrorists who shot Israelis near Hevron this past Friday. This action was obviously taken to introduce an escalation of the Stabbing Intifada complimented already with bolder throwing at passing vehicles. Now we will be facing shooting including likely sniper fire in Jerusalem from an Arab populated hill into homes of Jews on the next hill with these shots often from a high caliber weapon so as to penetrate walls even going through two or three rooms before lodging in the other outside wall.

 

 

Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade has Announced that the Stabbing Intifada is Already Complimented by Bolder Boulder Throwing at Vehicles, Using Vehicles as Battering Rams Into Bus Stops and Light Rail Station. Now There Will be Shooting and Sniper Fire in Jerusalem From Arab Controlled Hill into Jewish Homes on the Neighboring Hill. Additionally the Rioting, Especially the Friday After Prayer at Checkpoints, Will be Accented With Loud, Sharp, and Staccato Retorts of Machine Gun Fire. All This Will Now Endanger Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists and even Israelis who are Muslims Without ANY Differentiation at All.
