Israel Palestinian Peace Cannot be Negotiated the Same Old Ways

 

The Western ideal of negotiated settlement between the Arabs and Israel is not possible. The first rule is that the negotiations have nothing to do with a Palestinian state. As soon as Israel is destroyed, the surrounding Arab world will move into the areas dividing up the lands and slaughtering any Palestinian resisting their dividing up the long sought after spoils. There is no intention in the Arab world for a Palestinian state. Their only concern is Israel’s vaunted military power neutralized, and the Palestinians are the sacrificial lamb that disguises their snarling teeth in sheep’s clothing. The Israelis know this and the United States State Department knows this and anybody who has studied the Middle East knows this. Presidents of the United States knew this until recently as they had studied the wars with the Muslim Barbary Pirates starting with Thomas Jefferson and the wars pacifying the Muslim separatists by Blackjack Pershing in the Philippine Islands, a war that continues to this day against the Philippine government. But as has been stated, much to the shame of all, history has become the purview of nerds and misfits. Unfortunately knowledge of where we’ve been is not a prerequisite for leadership, a dearth and deficit which can only prove to be a great disadvantage as leading without a grounding in knowledge with a decent footing in history is taking the wheel of the ship of state ordering the rudder be removed. Perhaps we should have a campaign debate and hold a History Jeopardy debate with points et al; we might even get Alex Trebek.

The United States is in its Presidential sweepstakes in what is a wide open field as there will be no actual incumbent. Hillary Clinton will try to play the role of incumbent though the closest she really has been was out at the State Department or decorating the table with the staff for a State dinner where she would play arm candy, probably not her strong suit. Meanwhile there will be in the other contest one who will claim he is the Trump suit. The next runner-up we can feel the Bern or continue on Cruz control. Whatever the result the eventual candidates will never face questions which actually matter for the position of President of the world’s main super power, or at least potentially its main super power if their leaders so choose. There will be questions which would be better posed to those running for Senate and the House of Representatives as they presumably are charged to be the legislators of the domestic issues. The President has the position of presenting the United States to the world and presiding over the foreign policies and all negotiations. If a President has no knowledge of world affairs and history leading up to the present and the precedents set by such, they will fall into the trap of being completely dependent upon the bureaucrats from the State Department for their foreign policy. This would soon commit them to the failures of the past as the State Department is not as adaptable and is more invested in continuing that with which they are familiar and comfortable rather than working to effect change and adapting when challenges present themselves. Government or other establishment career bureaucrats are not exactly daring innovators as they are go along to get along let’s just do that which has worked in most other situations and stick to the book. When it comes to the Arab Israeli conflict the book is what has everything mired in the failures of the past. Past administrations have tried taking the Israeli side, putting space between the United States and Israel and even placing, as President Truman did in 1948-9, an arms embargo on Israel as they were at war with half a dozen Arab nations and expected to perish and none of these positions have brought peace. There has been one policy never attempted and never likely to be implemented but which would end the discussions at least for the foreseeable future. Let us attempt to see what it might be and wonder which of the current candidates would be most likely to implement such an approach.

 

We need to look back to the first ten to twelve years of Israeli history. The initial starting-point of the Arab Israeli conflict dates to dawn on a Shabbat morning, namely Saturday May 15, 1948. On that sunrise the nation of Israel was but hours old, had no functional government and only a provisional government holding power until formal election would be held. Such would have to wait as that dawn brought half a dozen Arab armies and various militias over her borders with a genocidal intent and the end of what was considered an insult to the superiority, preeminence and invulnerability of the Islamic world. It took over a year before the fighting drew to an obvious stalemate and armistice lines were drawn, today known as the Green Line and the Blue Line. The Blue Line serves as the accepted border between Israel and Lebanon. The Green Line separates the Arab Palestinian disputed areas and Israel. It needs to be understood that the Green Line was demanded by the Arab League to never be considered or used as a border as doing so was tantamount to recognizing the existence of the Jewish State of Israel, an anathema to Arab and Muslim pride and self-respect. The original borders recognized by the United Nations and decided by the General Assembly defaulted to the Jewish State when the Arab League refused to accept the evenly divided United Nations map leaving the lands undivided to Israel (see maps below).

If a President were ever to understand that Israel took the remainder of the lands and built a nation which is determined to not merely survive but thrive no matter the threats or challenges instead of believing the State Department line that the Jews stole Arab Muslim sacred lands, then he might actually try something more effective than the past failures. The Israelis desire peace but not at the expense of losing their nation and towards that end the promise of defendable borders needs to be the primary concern. The matter of Israel returning lands has been satisfied with the return of the Sinai Peninsula, an area many times the size of Israel itself, and the release of claims to Gaza which is now in the hands of murderous terrorist groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad and other smaller families and splinter groups pledged to Islamic State, al-Qaeda and potentially others. These groups receive funds from the Muslim Brotherhood, Iran, Qatar and other Muslim and Arab sources and are equally threatening Egypt as they are Israel. Another fact glossed over were the nearly one million Jews dispossessed by their Arab and Muslim rulers who predominately came to Israel as refugees with barely any possessions and instead of placing them in camps and demanding the United Nations develop an agency with the singular responsibility of caring for them and their children and their children’s children into eternity or until they were permitted return to their former nations, they were welcomed and became functioning members of Israel and are today as vibrant and accepted as are every Israeli citizen and enjoy full rights. Another item glossed over is the numerous minorities such as Arabs, Christians, Muslims, Baha’I, Buddhists and virtually any other religious groups one might name who all have full rights as Israeli citizens including holding elective office, education, working and all other aspects while Israel’s neighbors cannot make the same claim about their Jewish citizens as they have none and the Arab Palestinians demand that any lands they eventually steal from the original borders of the Jewish State be completely cleansed of its Jews or they will annihilate them. This was put on its full and most gory display when two Israeli reservists made a wrong turn and ended up in Arab Palestinians areas. They were placed in the city jail in hopes of keeping them safe until they might be returned but the townspeople had a different idea. The police fled the building leaving them locked in the cells and the keys on the desk surrendering them to the mob which literally tore them limb from limb with one young teen making a display to the screaming joyous shouts of the crowd outside with the picture captured by a media photographer and secreted out and made public on newscasts worldwide as seen below.

Numerous peace offers and concessions have been made by Israel in exchange for promises and steps to follow, leading to peace yet every offer is pocketed and then peace is never forthcoming as in the end the Arab Palestinians walk away keeping every offer making it the required starting point. This had led to the now demand that Israel surrender half of Jerusalem and possibly even remove entire cities and manufacturing parks which employ Arab Palestinians as well as Jews in a state of equality and the Arabs receiving higher pay than even the Palestinian Authority average government employee. These are cities built in area C which originally was presented as remaining as a part of Israel and the Palestinian authority was forbidden building within yet now European governments and the European Union are buying exclusively lands in this area, building and bringing in Arabs to place facts on the ground and to force Israeli surrender of these areas which will leave Israel as vulnerable as she was in 1967 at the start of the Six Day War. This will only guarantee the next war and this time Israel might not be as fortunate as modern weapons are in every army in their area and combined the Arab nations easily have Israel outgunned and way outnumbered. Such a conflict might come down to the occurrence of a miracle rivalling the splitting of the sea. President Obama and Secretaries of State Clinton and Kerry have all demanded that the borders for Israel be based upon the 1949 Armistice Lines which the Arab League had demanded never serve as such. What has changed? The Arabs in numerous attempts have been unable to destroy Israel so they are now hoping to use this entity they invented of an Arab Palestinian different from their brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, parents and relatives in Jordan, Syria (or used to be in Syria), Egypt, Sudan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and beyond because they must be different so they can claim they are indigenous and thus have a claim to their reconstituted nation of Palestine. Problem is there has never been such a nation as we find out every so often when let slip the truth and one of the biggest was when in an interview where Zahir Muhsein, a PLO executive committee member, in a March 31, 1977 interview with the Dutch newspaper Trouw stated for the record:

 

“The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct ‘Palestinian people’ to oppose Zionism.”
“For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa. While as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.”
As stated by Zahir Muhsein, a PLO executive committee member, in a March 31, 1977 interview with the Dutch newspaper Trouw.

 

 

Perhaps the above quote should become required reading for those astute State Department career bureaucrats just so they can continue to consider themselves up to date and educated in the ways and machinations of the Middle East. The State Department has treated Israel as the land from Never Neverland which should be erased for the sake of peace and perchance restore Israel to her intended borders as per their existence on that Shabbat morning of Saturday May 15, 1948. There will be the cries that there are five or six or, who knows, seven million Arab Palestinian refugees. What will be left out is that these “refugees” have been living in actual apartment buildings and forced to be separate instead of allowed to be part of their parent country and were originally only slightly less than two-thirds of a million actual refugees originally. Put into a reference which is more appropriate, they were a few hundred thousand less than the eventual numbers of Jews expelled or driven from their homes across the Arab and Muslim worlds of MENA (Middle East and North Africa) and that a goodly number of them are in camps either in Jordan, the original Arab Palestinian land where three quarters of the population are considered to also be Arab Palestinians, Gaza mostly just outside Gaza City, and Area A of the West Bank right outside of Nablus where Mahmoud Abbas is having his pleasure palace, office of the President and troop barracks to keep him as President built (see picture below). Perhaps the original plan where the Arab nations were awarded for their almost defeating Israel and then losing all the lands back to Israel in successive wars to keep Area A and negotiate (but to be nice why not just surrender) Area B while Israel retains Area C as the Oslo Accords spelled out and end the whole affair and call it done. The disputed areas contained in Areas A and B were roadways which were to have shared usage but perhaps many of those could be easily surrendered as well and conditions made for Arabs in Areas A and B who already have positions in the companies remaining in Area C to keep such employment.

All of Jerusalem would remain as the Capital City of Israel, undivided, and open to people of every faith as it currently remains never to return to Islamic imperialism as was the case from 1948 until early June of 1967 when the Old City, Mount of Olives Cemetery and Temple Mount were liberated and forever to remain freely accessible to people of all faiths or even no faith. As for any Arabs who were considered Palestinians remaining in Area C or Jerusalem, they would be granted a path for Israel citizenship dependent on their refraining from terrorism by any family member or they could choose to have their property bought at a generous price and be granted a severance of residency awarded which would easily cover any moving and other relocation effects and be permitted to seek citizenship or residence outside of Israel with a promise to not return to Israel. Such individuals should be granted automatic residence in any Arab Palestinian state which emerges from Areas A and B in the future. Meanwhile the Palestinian Authority would remain as the ruling body until the framework for a real government will be forthcoming. If Mahmoud Abbas decides to continue as President for Life, well, that would be none of Israel’s business unless he also continued to instigate terror and allow attacks across the borders. That should be termed as a declaration of war and any persons crossing an international border to commit terrorist acts would face a military trial with potential capital punishment. That too should be stipulated though such should be understood. Any Arab Palestinians in camps should either be relocated to the Palestinian Areas or permitted to remain in their current apartments and be given a path to citizenship in the nation where they have already resided for two, three or even four generations. As for those driven from their camps after they joined the insurrection against Bashir al Assad, their lives have taken a dramatic turn and are now amongst the Syrian refugees and as indistinguishable as could be possible and many which may have survived are very likely somewhere in Europe seeking shelter and all that was sort of eluded to or promised by Angela Merkel and her fellow leaders in much of Scandinavia and Europe. We wish the refugees and their new found national homelands the best of luck in all things. Honest, we feel your pain but not enough to offer much else.

Terror as Just a Daily Occurrence

 

Throughout most of the world people have no idea that Israelis are still suffering at least four or five active terror attacks each day and that does not include throwing boulder sized rocks and firebombs at passing vehicles hoping to put the huge rocks or the firebomb through the windshield or side window thus hitting the driver causing a crash and potentially fatalities. Many of these ambushed are even done from moving trucks going the opposite direction as the cars they target doubling the speed of their deadly projectiles and these ambushes can go on for hours before they are ended as they move and are planned to evade the IDF and police. Further, the Shin Bet has a more important task than Arab terror as Arab terror is a nuisance as there are bigger fish to fry, what are euphemistically called Jewish terrorism and is largely overstated but has occurred on occasions but nowhere near as prevalent as the Arab terror and more often it is more protest than threat to life. The Duma fire was an exception but has yet to be proven to be an act by Jews but the PA assures the Shin Bet that as there was Hebrew writing claiming it was a price-tag crime that no Arab could have possible written that in Hebrew, there is no way in the world such could be the case. Meanwhile the Shin Bet is rounding up the usual suspects and locking them away for deep interrogation until somebody breaks. Yet daily threats continue as the latest round-up claimed numerous right wing extremists, as always those on the right are extremists while the most egregious and violent leftist might be referred to as left-leaning but otherwise they are mainly left-center or normal as the writers of much of our daily read mainstream media are closer to leftist extremists than they are to centrist observers without any slant or leanings that might taint their reporting. Perhaps that is why we feel free to do the same except from the right and we try to be fair when reporting facts.

 

The world media might wish to get their news and actually report the daily assaults on Jews especially in and around Jerusalem and other places where Arabs and Jews are in close proximity. But if they wish not to report that their favorites are attempting daily to murder as many Jews as possible, then maybe they would do a feel-good story and arrange a tour of one of those miserable factories which some ‘evil’ Jew owns across the Green Line in Judea and Samaria and take a camera crew and do a live and unrehearsed feed to the morning news shows, maybe even on the View, and show Arab and Jews working together and both treating each other as equals and show what can be if the world could get off their kill the ‘evil’ Jewish State angle. There are many stories like this daily both within the Green Line and across the Green Line. They might want to explain that the entirety of the Green Line problem is also a manufactured attempt to destroy the Jewish State of Israel but then they would need to point out their active supporting role of ignoring terrorism against Jews and reporting immediately breaking into news casts to report the slimmest of rumored crimes by Jews such as defending themselves from terror attacks.

We have seen and heard news reports where a BBC, CNN, FOX or other news station reporting the unequal numbers of killed in the recent terror wave or reporting that in Israel many Arabs have received non-judicial sentencing as Jews are murdering, or the slightly less offensive killing, of Palestinians largely in the Jerusalem area where terror has often struck. What is a listener or viewer to believe is causing the terror with such reporting? They certainly are not going to believe that there is Arab on Jew violent terror attacks and the Jews and law enforcement is often forced to use deadly force as the perpetrator of the terrorism wants to continue to stab even responding armed police and IDF personnel. But in Israel the blame the victim especially if they are IDF or Israeli police or Jews defending themselves is nothing new as the news out of Israel to the rest of the world often takes the hands-up don’t shoot attitude casting the Arab as the victim who had absolutely no other choice but to attack Jews with large knives and hatchets. The Jews were asking to be assaulted as they exist in Jerusalem astoundingly enough. Could the reporting be any more slanted than the few we pointed out just the other day in our article Red Flags Facing Israel in Every Direction complete with screen shots and images of such reporting.

 

As we write this article there is more than likely an act of terror with intent to murder Jews being committed somewhere in Israel or the disputed areas. Also, do you in the media think you could ever cover that the ‘disputed areas’ were originally at the dawn of Israel’s existence all part of Israel as was Gaza and they were taken by the Arab forces attempting to eradicate the Jewish State on Day 1 and that the disputed West Bank was then called Judea and Samaria but was occupied, actual occupation, and the Jews forced from the areas of Judea and Samaria, by Jordan who conquered the area in an offensive war initiated by the Arabs and that in the six Day War Israel liberated, yes, liberated these lands and under all International Codes of Law the entirety of the ‘West Bank’ Judea and Samaria belong to Israel and the Arabs have no legitimate claim. Oh no, that cannot be reported as it might confuse our viewers in the Western World and give them the idea that the Jews are more the victims of erroneous reporting of the news and the disfiguring the reality beyond recognition. Why baffle your viewers and readers with actual facts when you can play demigods and cast the Jews into the fiery pit. People should, if they know of somebody who had visited Israel and not said much about their trip other than listing the interesting places they visited, ask them about how the Jews treat the Arabs and the majority of the Arabs interact with the Jews and what areas they felt completely safe visiting and where they were either too frightened or took a tour which brought its own security with them for their safety. Their answers might completely turn what you have been led to believe right over and on its head. Don’t be afraid as the truth may give one a jolt in the brain box, it otherwise results in a warm feeling of realization. We wish you to ask somebody you know what their visit to our little, very little, corner of the world because once you have gathered a few testimonies the things we write will become clearer and less extreme and possibly quite believable, as the truth often becomes once one has been freed from the confines of the misleaders, also known as the mainstream media.

It is truly sad that Arabs using large rocks as projectiles against vehicles with Israeli license plates, which could strike any Israelis be they Jew, Arab, Muslim, Christian, Druze, Bedouin, or tourist from anywhere in a rented vehicle because even if it sends the entire carload of a family, business people carpooling, or just about any other scenario, to a hospital or worse, a morgue; it is not news. There are also numerous firebombs thrown at cars with Israeli license plates and homes in predominantly Jewish neighborhoods and the occasional user of a firebomb who gets things entirely wrong as pictured above. The young man survived and this is known because if he had been seriously wounded or died the media would have been fed a story that the Jews threw a firebomb at this youth almost killing him or worse and the media would have spread that far and wide. The boulder throwing, car rammings, rioting, stabbings using everything from screwdrivers to knives to hatchets, mugging murders of young women even by taxi drivers from which they were being driven to a job interview and then there are the rockets from Hamas and the threats out of Lebanon where Hezballah has amassed thousands of rockets and missiles provided by Iran and snuck past Israel’s attempts to stop such shipments. The threats even have come from the Mediterranean of which one was avenged and it is starting to appear that Samir Kuntar was eliminated by Hezballah due to fears that he was about to return to his Druze roots and assist in the formation of a Druze autonomous zone which Bashir al-Assad cannot allow as the Druze are the last faithful holding Islamic State as bay.

 

Even with the events on the Temple Mount the blame is laid at the wrong door as the news reports blame the Jews for attempting to desecrate the al-Aqsa Mosque simply because Mahmoud Abbas has said so on numerous occasions and we all know for the media his words are truth and any evidence to the contrary be damned. This has been at the root of the rioting and is the exact same call for Jihad on demand used by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini back as early as 1920s as he called for the Muslims first in Hevron to rise up and protect al-Aqsa from the Jewish attempts to desecrate it with their demonic services and then a while later he repeated the same message to the Muslims of Jerusalem for another pogrom against the Jews. This was the rallying cry used during the second intifada to much glorious effect causing rioting, suicide bombings and other assaults murdering over a thousand Jews and spawning the separation barrier which in some locations necessitated concrete to prevent shooting from Arab neighborhoods into the houses and at children playing outside (which made many a Jewish child into a shut in and home schooled as allowing them to walk to school was far too risky) and there were court cases and many reroutings done to make the lives of those at the demarcation line for the fence easier. Much of the fence is just that, fence with cameras and sensors but in built up areas there was the need for something to stop high powered rifle bullets, thus concrete which has been shown across the world making it into an apartheid wall in the media when it was simply a defensive necessity so Israelis could go out in public and not be blown to pieces. The rioting on the Temple Mount is not about the al-Aqsa Mosque but about closing the Temple Mount to Jewish visitors and Christian visitors as well. The riots are a means of making the Temple Mount a Muslim only zone and it will never work even if Jews are going to need to enter the Temple Mount from another unapproved entrance, say the Lion’s Gate and the small number of Jews entering coming in at around five thousand, that would be a sight and if occurring during Muslim rioting we would bet that would end any riots and the Temple Mount would be Jewish and Christian and whomever else desired to come peaceably and enjoy the blessings of this holy place. Below there are a few pictures of the al-Aqsa Mosque and one picture which is not the al-Aqsa Mosque despite being shown all too often on the news and elsewhere depicting the Dome of the Rock as the al-Aqsa Mosque. The first is a montage of al-Aqsa from within as it is being utilized as a munitions depot with rocks and other essentials for rioting.

Israeli Settlements a False Issue

 

Concentrating on half-a-million Jews and ignoring a situation of ten times the numbers which are the five-million refugees presumably all from 1948, with just a smattering from 1967, forced within Israel proper to force Israel to become an Arab state, the twenty-third Arab State, and removing the sole Jewish State conceals the reality of the situation, that the Arabs are insisting not on their own state but to have both states to become Arab states with the names of Palestine and al-Israelabi. But the reasoning behind the concern all about the “Jewish problem” while ignoring the facts that the Arabs are demanding the death of Israel, demanding to be permitted to swamp the only Jewish State with sufficient Arabs “refugees” who have never for one second been within Israeli borders, demanding the Jews accept any deal as temporary until the next temporary deal, and demanding the world assist in murdering the six-million plus Jews residing in Israel by refusing them exit when the Arabs takeover is simply because the Israelis are civilized and will talk and are willing to resolve problems in a civilized manner while the Arabs are living under a seventh century code of accept surrender and then plunder, ravage, pillage and murder the former inhabitants or change the order around and put murder the former inhabitants ahead of accept surrender and then plunder, ravage, pillage and murder the remainder of former inhabitants. Meanwhile Europe and the United States and the remainder of Western Civilization is hoping against hope that the Arabs will be sated for a period of time with having Israel sacrificed for a momentary peace except that has absolutely no possibility of working, and here is why.

 

The world needs to wake to the nightmare that is facing them. The leftists in order to rid the world of those they find distasteful from those amongst them, the ones insisting on preserving the Judeo-Christian value system, are siding with a primeval force which is tribal and fiercely demanding of those it rules that they surrender completely and totally to their societal structure which leads to destroying all else and making it all a part of their Islamic society. The difficulty with accepting such a deal will not satisfy these Islamists because their definition of Islam does not accept the convert as having made the choice freely thus not being of a pure Islamic soul and therefore they will be amongst the first sacrificed for the purity of Islam. A warning to the half a billion Muslims who think they are following Islam correctly, you have made one horrific choice as only a Sunni or Shiite can be a true and good Muslim, whichever ends up with the largest camp of believers once the world has been subjugated and all other beliefs have been eradicated. Once the entirety of Islam has been whittled to the pure Sunni or Shiite state, we will simply refer to this as Islam as it matters little which one becomes the prevalent and thus the only form of Islam practiced because this does not end the purification as there will then be those Muslims who are slightly different than the rest of the followers of Islam so they must be impure. This purification could continue until, as in Highlander, there will be only one, and we do mean only one, and thus the end of Islam, Human kind and finally a real intelligent life-form can develop and hopefully make a whole new and different set of mistakes as the most intelligent species on the planet.

 

That problem of an uncivilized force living within a civil society played out again on the streets of Israel yesterday. As of this writing an infant who suffered horrific wounds including the near loss of one of its tiny legs had gone into emergency surgery at Ein Kerem Hospital with the hopes of saving the one and a half year old’s leg through microsurgical techniques and also saving the infant’s life. Dr. Ofer Merin, head of the trauma unit at Shaare Tzedek Hospital, said “the infant aged around a year-and-a-half has a serious wound to his leg. We decided to transfer him to Hadassah Ein Kerem to save his leg in an attempt at micro-surgery treatment.” The attack which caused this dire and tragic situation was the result of yet another assault on a crowded sidewalk in Jerusalem by ramming into the crowd with a vehicle. The attack might have turned out for the worse had the vehicle not struck a fire hydrant bringing it to a stop. After ramming and destroying the hydrant, the driver emerged from the vehicle armed with a hand axe and started moving towards the injured with the obvious intent to finish off as many of the injured who could not run from him and then probably slashing at whomever they were capable of striking. Fortunately, when the driver, a twenty-one-year-old Arab terrorist from Jerusalem’s Beit Hanina neighborhood, emerged still intent on even more carnage that bystanders ended his rampage of carnage dispatching the terrorist with a few shots eliminating any further realizations of this terrorist and potentially still qualifying as a murderous intent almost qualifying as human. Below is a video of the scene soon after the incident had been dramatically brought to a close and the treatment started. There were fourteen people injured with an older woman in her sixties and the young infant the most serious amongst those injured which does include the infant’s mother being treated at the same hospital as her child, Ein Kerem Hospital. More images can be seen on an article covering the initial assault on Arutz Sheva.

 

 

 

 

Additionally, yesterday three people received light wounds from a rock attack on their vehicle. As they related, their vehicle was assaulted by a barrage of various sized rocks as they were ambushed by a number of youths hurling rocks including some of considerable size one of which penetrated the vehicle window and is pictured below. The three injured individuals received treatment from Magen David Adom (MDA) medical teams and were taken to hospital for additional treatment. Such attacks have become a daily event with numerous such attacks each day. As many Israeli drivers whose travel takes them into areas both within and outside the Green Line where such attacks regularly occur have had the windows of their vehicles replaced with tougher and more resilient and impervious to rock attacks installed and thus have escaped such attacks with minor dents to their vehicles but with the passengers unhurt and capable of taking such attacks more in stride. This does not lessen the severity of the problem but has played to make such attacks not as newsworthy despite there not being any decrease in the number of vehicles under such attacks daily. The only such attacks which are reported are thus those with injuries of sufficient severity as to require a visit and treatment at a hospital; as if the first responders at such an attack are capable of treating people at the scene and their not requiring transport to a hospital, that by the time a reporter and cameraman can appear on the scene of a rock attack the only thing left to see is the police report which even that would require a request for information as even that report has been filed by the police. It is a sad commentary to be capable of saying such attacks which would be considered front page newsworthy in Paris or New York, London or Los Angeles, Berlin or Chicago, the Hague or Boston or even Brussels or Washington D.C. does not make the news cycle even if it were to take place in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv as without a picture there are not the thousand words to replace such and thus the story remains untold. What the world must remember that the attacks on Israelis, be they rock assaults on Israeli vehicles on her roadways, knifings with anything from a kitchen knife to a screwdriver or even including hand axes or rammings with a vehicle where the vehicle is towed away and the people treated on scene, again, no dramatic video and accompanying pictures, then no article and it is dismissed as just another such assault. The positive is by giving such attacks virtually no coverage or mention in the news beyond a blurb before going to commercial, almost a filler if necessary, just does not give the terrorist any “fame” or credit, so to speak, and thus makes the entire idea of such an attack less appealing or glamorous, and the perpetrator being eliminated without being referred to except by the most general of terms, no glamour, no fame, not even any decent notice and possibly thus no virgins in Muslim paradise, what could be worse.

Still, if anyone from the White House or State Department wishes to be front page news, all they need do is one more time condemn Israel for building homes for Jews on land which is liberated Israeli lands taken in an offensive war in 1948-9 by the seven Arab nation’s armies in an attempt to drive the Jews into the sea and annihilate them. The so-called “West Bank” is actually Judea and Samaria which were part of Israel on the morning of May 15, 1948 and the evening before when David ben Gurion pronounce Israeli independence from British rule ending the British Mandate and the next morning seven national armies swarmed over Israeli borders intent on murdering every soul they met, Arab or Israeli. The Mufti of Jerusalem, though during World War II he could have more easily been declared the Mufti of Berlin, has instructed all the Arabs living within Israel to leave and get behind the front lines of the assailing and soon to be tasting victory Arab armies. The imminent slaughter of everybody within Israel did not quite come about as planned as something unheard of until that fateful day, which means very simply, the Jews fought back and did not just wait to be slaughtered as had been the case in Europe. A new day was coming.

 

Next time you hear somebody claim it is the Jews and the settlements which are to blame for there being no peace settlement; please correct their uninformed opinion with some reality. The Arabs could have had half of all the land but they would not settle for anything less than all of the lands and the better half at that. While Jordan held the “West Bank” they could have had their state but they formed the PLO in order to use terrorism to take all the lands. Anytime since the 1967 Six Day War Israel would have traded the “West Bank” all of Judea and Samaria back to Jordan for peace. When Jordan, after Sadat and Egypt boldly went where no Arab had gone before and made peace with the Jewish State (he paid for this brave and fateful move with his life as members of a reviewing troop broke ranks and assaulted the stands and slaughtered him for making peace) Jordan made peace and forfeited Judea and Samaria which Jordan had occupied since 1948-9 up until the lands were liberated in the Six Day War. A few years later the Jordanian monarch bent to pressures from the Muslim Brotherhood and the eighty percent of Jordanian population which also call themselves Palestinians, and forfeited the Jordanian claim (the same claim forfeited to Israel at the peace talks) to the PLO such that their struggle would now be treated as a struggle for their homelands and not just wanton terrorism when they murdered families having lunch at Sbarro Pizza Parlor or a Passover Seder for Holocaust Survivors and their families in the Park Hotel in Netanya, a northern suburb of Tel Aviv which were both blown to pieces by bombs in terror attacks which are taught in Palestinian Authority (PA) and Hamas schools as brave acts of martyrs to be honored and emulated. Please read these last links as they will open a new vision into these acts and their places in the two different societies, one barbarous in nature the other the civilized one who is blamed as that is the safer target.

 

When you hear anybody claim that Israel is the impediment to peace, please tell them we would give back the presumed desired lands except the Arabs want all of the lands and have refused numerous offers including one granted only because President Clinton claimed that Yasser Arafat had agreed to the terms thus Ehud Barak agreed to those same exact terms and Arafat stalked from the next morning’s meeting rejecting the very offer he made the night before without even a counter and within six weeks began the second intifada which claimed over a thousand Israeli lives and is what led to the construction of the wall and fence which ended the stream of suicide bombings as it took going through a checkpoint to enter Israel thus no more bombings. Ever since that went into effect the PA has pressed the United States Presidents to demand Israel open the passage into Israel and remove the racist checkpoints as they are demeaning. I have to go through a checkpoint to take a train, a checkpoint to enter a mall, a checkpoint to watch the Purim Parade in my town, a checkpoint to listen to candidates speak, a checkpoint to enter the municipal building to pay my water bill, a checkpoint to enter the post office where many other transactions other than packages and stamps take place, a checkpoint to enter the department store downtown and a checkpoint to visit my father in the hotel when he visits. Israelis have to go through checkpoints because of Palestinian terror attacks because one can never be too careful. Just to put this into perspective, with the entirety of Israeli public on alert and all who are licensed for weapons carry taking their firearm with them as added safety for all; the totals for the past three Jewish calendar months, that is exactly one-hundred-eighty days (three thirty-day months) are twenty-two dead, two-hundred-fifty-two injured which does not count for the numbers of people suffering from rock assaults whose cars were damaged but the passengers were unharmed and often these are unreported, and unsuccessful stabbing attacks where the terrorist was unsuccessful and upon meeting determined or armed opposition fled and thus going unreported, yet in each such case there is still the mental strains and stresses unimaginable by those never facing combat or similar situations and may they continue to be spared such horrors.

 

Tell them that just because the media does not cover the terror and violence launched and perpetrated upon Israelis, all Israelis including Arabs, Muslims, Christians, Bahá’í, Buddhists and of course Jews has not abated, it has simply returned to the whatever is the latest ‘norm,’ that is all. Currently that is as many as three stabbings per day, up to three cars used as an assault vehicle rammed into bus stops and other such gathering places, as many as seven rockets out of Gaza each month, and various other inconveniences perpetrated on Israelis dressed too Jewish such as spitting, slamming shoulder as passing, curses, tripping and other insults and degradations as what would be considered a major incident if it were to happen to a Muslim in almost any European or other western nation and the entire world would cease rotating until the dog who perpetrated such an insult was brought to shame, such being perpetrated on predominately Jews in Israel (or most of the rest of the world) is nothing to get excited about as it is no big deal. The only reason the last Gaza War did not produce thousands of dead Israelis was the Iran Dome and its over ninety percent interception rate. Even then there would have been thousands potentially killed in one single attack except for the hand of Hashem, praised be, as the Iron dome had missed three times and it was a puff of the wind between total calms which pushed the rocket into the sea instead of striking the central business center of Tel Aviv where likely thousands would have died and at least one if not as many as five towering skyscrapers could have been felled causing untold carnage. Read about this miracle here. Israel is not an impediment to peace and had been an impediment to an outright military attack by Islam on Europe, but that is no longer a worry as Europe invited the invasion in upon itself and that is beyond Israeli abilities as wonderful as they are. One cannot save those not wishing to be saved, but at least let those who choose sanity to retain that sanity and do not impose your insanity upon them. If Europe desires fifty-million Islamic “refugees,” we will not prevent them taking all that they desire; we just desire to miss out on that deal which only leaves more for Europe to take, a mere drop in the bucket as the tap in Europe for Islamic immigration unchecked and without any restrictions, just walk right in. May they tread lightly upon your culture.
