United Nations Chasing its Tail Once Again

 

There is an easy view of the world where there is relative peace throughout the globe except for the distinct possibility that there could start some additional violence if the United States vile and despised President, Donald Trump, and his overly zealous Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, are permitted to continue to provoke the world in such manner as to recognize Jerusalem as the Capital City for the State of Israel. Everybody knows that Jerusalem is the Holy City of the Muslims replacing Constantinople for that role, which is interesting as it is claimed that Constantinople was an errant name for Istanbul, what that city has been named since it was incorporated into the recognized world. As a matter of fact, it is that same world map which denoted Jerusalem as a purely Muslim city with no real place in history before being conquered by the Arabian raiders somewhere around 636-7 when Jerusalem fell to the Arab siege. The world was being discovered back in those days as it was revealed to the enlightenment of Islam. Before Islam, there was nothing but chaos and confusion which changed as Islam tamed the world. This is real history according to UNESCO* and their New World History, a work in progress. This is the world according to the Quran and thus must become the sole reality of the world and UNESCO and the rest of the United Nations establishments are all in accordance with these efforts. Just so everybody understands, the position of third holiest city in all of Islam changes, as needs produce whatever city is to be targeted next. For the longest time, Constantinople was the third holiest city in all Islam until it was conquered. Before Constantinople, Alexandria, and before that Cairo were also third holiest cities in Islam. The first two are set in stone, in a large black box, in the southeastern corner is that stone, the stone in the Kaaba, that sets Mecca as the preeminent city in Islam followed my Medina where the Islamic armies were born. So, how does a city become the third holiest city in Islam? That is easy, simply be the city in question when discussing Islamic intentions for adding said city as Islamic and erasing all former mentions of the city which cannot be woven into the ever changing, set in stone story of the life and times of Muhammad. If one is talking about France in general, then Paris becomes the third holies city but if you are talking on invading France, then Marseilles becomes the third holiest city, as one requires its ports to land any force and keep them supplied.

The cornerstone of Islam, literally, as it sits embedded in the Kaaba in Mecca. It is initially described in Wikipedia as:

“The Black Stone (Arabic: ٱلْحَجَرُ ٱلْأَسْوَد‎, al-Ḥajaru al-Aswad, “Black Stone”) is a rock set into the eastern corner of the Kaaba, the ancient building located in the center of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It is revered by Muslims as an Islamic relic which, according to Muslim tradition, dates back to the time of Adam and Eve.”

And here is a montage of the Black Stone, its placement, the Black Box or Kaaba, and the courtyard filled with Hajj worshipers.

Both the Islamic worshipers today and throughout history, ever since Muhammad reportedly placed the sacred stone in its resting place, and the previous worshipers who owned the Black Box with its stone intact were worshiping their idolatry. The Kaaba existed as a shrine before being co-opted by the Muslims and repurposed as their holy site, a practice they continue to this day. Proof of this practice becomes obvious when one observes the holy men throughout history whom it is claimed were Muslims. These include but are not limited to Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Noah, King David, King Solomon, Adam (and Eve), and numerous other people from Jewish and Christian history. Any individual from the Bible who can be co-opted into the story of Islam is thus stolen and there is no list of people co-opted in this manner than to reveal their presumed roles in Islam. Presumably, in the Islamic end-times, there will be chaos and the Muslims will have just finished removing every Jew from planet Earth when Gabriel arrives and announces that the time for the messiah has almost arrived. The war Islam is fighting will be the final battle where all the remainder of the world will fall to them and evils such as Jews have been eradicated. Once Gabriel has blown his horn, this will bring the purifier to Earth, and that will be Jesus who will assist Mohammad once he has brought him whole from Heaven. Mohammad holds a host of positions in Islam. He is its founder and the person who dictated the entirety of the Quranic verses, was the first Caliph leading them to their initial victories, and will return as the predicted savior of mankind in the end-times. Islam is close to being a solo act once all the stories are told. Islam treats city ranking as a relative rank depending on where on the target list it lies. If any city is a high priority city and one mentions their area, then it becomes required to name that main objective as the third holiest city in Islam. With the mention Israel, it becomes Jerusalem, but when speaking of Italy, it is Rome while France, it becomes Paris and England, it becomes London. This practice has been very successful, as all too often people will sacrifice the named third holiest city in Islam making the error of believing that the city was all Islam desired. They will then reveal their end game where they pressure existing religions to surrender their people for Islam. Total conversion becomes the true and real end as the survivors are captured in the end. There are stages non-Muslims will be forced to endure once they are captured by Islam. Eventually the captive is approached and they are requested to choose to become a follower of Islam and surrendered to Allah. Should they not get the hint they will soon be given a second opportunity to get the answer correct as they are then given the choice, convert or die.

 

Currently there are twenty-some wars or conflicts which are hot and taking lives of soldiers and civilians alike. Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Libya and the civil war between the Sudan and South Sudan and yet the last major considerations, first in the Security Council where fourteen Countries voted in favor and only the United States opposed and utilized her Veto powers to end the consideration except this was now taken to the next problem point, the General Assembly where there is no veto power for any state and the passage only gives the measure suggestive powers and no teeth for enforcement. The vote was a close one, almost a cliffhanger having us on the edge of our seats to see if it would pass, and the vote came back with 128-9 in favor and with 35 abstentions. This is far from a surprising result as it almost mirrors the General Assembly vote on Palestinian statehood made in the General Assembly each time that vote has been held. Some things are simply predictable. These last two votes, the Security Council and the General Assembly, were a triple whammy which explains the perfect score of 14 to 1, the one having absolute veto power, in the Security Council and the 128 to 9 with 35 abstentions in the General Assembly, as how often does one get to defame Israel, contradict the United States and denounce a conservative leader of a democratically governed nation. Each one by itself is enough to make the average dictator’s dream of feeling a little taller having done the dastardly deal for the day, but putting Israel in its place, telling off an American President and doing a dump on Trump is the cherry atop the ice cream Sunday with whipped cream and nuts.

 

The almost amusing part of this whole fiasco is that it was so much action accomplishing so little and President Trump used minimal action with tremendous ramifications. Think about it, which is going to have a greater influence on the future, the United Nations doubling down on forbidding President Trump and the United States from moving their embassy to Jerusalem or the United States actually moving the embassy to Jerusalem. That is, of course, providing President Trump can even get the State Department to ever get around to actually moving the embassy. Secretary of State Tillerson stated in Paris (see below) and quoted by CNN that the embassy will not be moved this year or probably even next year, probably meaning not in 2018 or 9 and possibly not in 2020 either. If we know the State Department, they will try to find some planning delays such that President Trump will be really fortunate to get the embassy moved by the end of his first term, even by the end of his second term, should he be reelected. We trust the State Department and its anti-Zionist, anti-Israel, and some might include anti-Semitic, attitude and specific hatred and distress concerning Israel that they will find some way of outlasting President Trump so that the next President can put the Jerusalem embassy back on permanent six-month waiver of the Congressional order for relocation. The State Department, like much of the Washington self-proclaimed elites, also known as the swamp, see President Trump as a temporary, as well as threateningly dangerous, interruption to their business as usual which will soon be gone and all they have to do to minimize his interruption of their smooth running of the world, or at least the Washington bureaucracy. That is, providing President Trump does not manage to drain the swamp, the one promise the President made which will probably be bigger than his ego.

 

 

What the United Nations hoped to accomplish was to force a confrontation and somehow get around any United States veto thus making President Trump impotent when it comes to foreign policy, well, at least concerning Israel and moving the embassy to Jerusalem. The United Nations has been making a concerted effort to separate Israel from Jerusalem as well as the entirety of her Biblical history. The United Nations believes that they can reverse the reality contained in their own charter under Article 80 which validates the Mandate System in its entirety. They actually believe they can vote Israel out of existence without any need for tanks, aircraft, and men in arms simply by voting it away. That, in and of itself, is sufficient and honest enough provocation that Israel would be justified in cancelling her membership with that organization. The vast majority of nations are not going to suddenly take the side of Israel no matter how much Israel does or how many acts of generosity, kindness and saving graces rescuing people, granting people a new life with discoveries in medicine, emergency services after natural disasters and other generally beneficent acts which Israel can perform that would ever result in a favorable General Assembly vote or favorable responses from UNESCO or other United Nations organizations. The world desires turning Israel into the twenty-second Arab state and undoing their decision to establish Israel in the first place. Truthfully, once the British announced a date on which they would be leaving the remaining 22% of the British Mandate which remained after the formation of TransJordan (now Jordan) as the home for the Palestinian Arabs, the Zionist Congress was going to declare Israel on the next day. The British announced May 14, 1948 and Israel was declared on May 15, 1948 and immediately invaded by several Arab armies with the intention of destroying the nascent state of Israel and the genocidal eradication of her Jewish population.

 

Well, the United Nations and their delusions of grandeur thinking that they can supercede the decision of the President of the United States is simply absurd. There would be no United Nations without United States funding. One can only wonder what would happen if the United States decided that having an international institute as corrupted as the United Nations operating against the interests of the American people and attempting to counter their elected government and its dealings with an allied government from within its borders operating on American taxpayer dollars was no longer tolerable. One can only imagine how much swamp clearing would be accomplished freeing up the prime real estate along the East River in Manhattan in New York City and sending the United Nations packing to say Paris or Geneva or Brussels or Abu Dhabi or whatever nation and city would accept the United Nations within their borders. After the way it has treated its current host, the United States, why would any government permit them to operate within their border, but then there are those for whom the United Nations is an ally and close confidant if not a disreputable ally ready to do whatever dastardly deed is required. The United States should spread the wealth and honor of having the United Nations newest and greatest headquarters in their nation for a change. Whatever comes next, if President Trump really desires draining swamps, the United Nations is one on an international scale which could really use draining. As for the State Department, to drain that swamp one would need to fire everybody and place every name on a list as ineligible to work at the State Department ever again and start from scratch using a different placement company, the present one either works for the enemy or are completely incompetent.

The OIC Issues Their Truths

 

The OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation), a committee consisting of fifty-seven member nations, had an emergency session in Turkey on December 13, 2017, after which they released a final communique. They released four major points listed below:

1. OIC members pledged to take joint action on the basis of international law against the statement of President Trump recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
2. The OIC condemned the “illegal settlement” activities by Israel in the occupied Palestinian territories.
3. The OIC declared President Trump’s statement to be “null and void”.
4. The “State of Palestine” is among the 22 Arab States that are OIC members.

These four statements might leave some breathless, but we believe very strongly that regular breathing is necessary to give reasoned responses, and for any hope of a little humor as well. We would like to extend an invitation for them to take any action they please short of military actions; we abhor war if it can be avoided, as international law is on the side of Israel. Of course, they actually are fully aware of this. International law includes these two items, Article Six of the Mandate for Palestine and Article Eighty of the United Nations Charter. Article Eighty of the United Nations Charter places the full support and weight of the United Nations in enforcement and recognition of the Mandate System which include both the French Mandate which birthed Lebanon as a Christian State and Syria as an Arab Muslim State as well as the British Mandate which established TransJordan (now Jordan) as an Arab State and Israel as the Jewish State. The British Mandate delineates the Jordan River as the border between the two entities which was the border as of midnight starting the day of May 15, 1948, before the Arab armies of six Arab States; Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Iraq, along with additional forces and contingents from other Arab nations. Israel survived this attack despite losing significant lands of the Gaza Strip and parts of Judea and Samaria too often referred to as West Bank which Jordan renamed the area to replace Judea and Samaria as they sound “too Jewish” and they could not have such Jewish sounding names if they were going to succeed in stealing the lands from Israel. The name sticks because many who use it instead of the historic names which were longstanding, namely Judea and Samaria, and Judea would be very hard to claim was not part of Israel or belonging to the Jews. Still, those two documents, Article Six of the Mandate for Palestine and Article Eighty of the United Nations Charter. Article Eighty of the United Nations Charter, are the foundation for international law which are irrefutable proof that the Jordan River is the eastern border of Israel and can only be altered should Israel release claim to any land as they did with Gaza.

 

As far as statement two which claims that, there are these “illegal settlement” activities by Israel in the occupied Palestinian territories, this is ridiculous for the same reasons as given above, Article Six of the Mandate for Palestine and Article Eighty of the United Nations Charter. The lands they refer to are, at worst, are disputed territories with an Arab claim and an Israeli claim. The reasoning behind the entire Palestinian concept was that when the situation was the Arab Israeli conflict, the sheer size of the Arab world compared to Israel is sufficiently intimidating enough that Israel looked like David against the Arab Goliath and to alter that the Palestinians were invented to be the David to the Israeli Goliath. This has worked at almost a charmed level as much of the world including but not limited to the United Nations, the European Union and numerous of the member states, Russia and all too often the United States pretend the Palestinians are the only Arabs who oppose the existence of Israel. When it comes to keeping the original promises made to the Zionist Jews, there is barely any government on the planet which even pretends to know the truth though the documents are available and understood by almost every last nation which pretends that the lands very well should be considered to be used in part for another Arab nation. All one has to do to see if the Arabs are short of space and the Jews are a threat to the Arab world and realize the insanity of such a concept is to look at the below map. Israel is the thin blue nation at the east end of the Mediterranean Sea with the Arab World in Yellow and their close allies of Turkey and Iran outlined in red. The speed with which the world adopted the Arab League in conjunction with the KGB plot to alter the image with the invented people, the Palestinian Arab, the real illegal entity, has been all but startling. It was almost love at first sight despite the plane hijackings and terrorism as these were quickly decided to be Israel’s fault. It is the old adage, when in doubt on who is to blame, blame the Jews, or in this case, the Jewish State.

We will end with statement three, as considering statement four see the above paragraph. The OIC has simply decided that the speech and everything stated by President Trump is now simply null and void because they desire so. One must wonder if they have called the State Department and told them that moving the Embassy of the United States from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem has been called off on the authority of the OIC. Have they done so, we are pretty sure the State Department would go to President Trump and inform him that they cannot possibly move the embassy as the OIC has told them that the entire deal is null and void. Must be nice to live in a world where reality is what you make of it and where you can nullify and invalidate the announced intentions of another nation, a world super power, but then the Arabs still believe they are the only power on Earth as Allah told them so way back in the Seventh Century, and nobody has told them anything different. How wonderful their world must be that they can have such discretion. We will await President Trump announcing that he is sorry and that he really did not say what we thought he said, though we doubt that statement is coming any time soon. If President Trump makes any statement concerning the latest announcement of what reality must be from the OIC, we are pretty sure the OIC will hold another emergency session and nullify and invalidate the new statements by President Trump. If not for the tedium, this could almost get comical. The world is getting to a point where the stresses and straining at every seam is reaching a crescendo and one wonders how much more it can take before something snaps and everything simply explodes. The conflagration will dwarf anything seen before and very well could send mankind all the way back to the stone age, less of a trip for some than for others, but still a tragedy.

Should Israel Ally with Saudi Arabia Over Iran?

 

There have been whispers that there may be a plan taking shape between Israel and Saudi Arabia to try and prevent the obvious moves by Iran to establish themselves as the hegemonic superpower of the Middle East. This has much to do with the Shiite Crescent we have spoken of at length which Iran has put together using the southern three-quarters of Iraq, Lebanon and the soon to be reconstituted Syria of Bashir al-Assad connecting Lebanon with Hezballah into the mix. When one adds Qatar and Yemen where Iran backed Houthis are winning against Saudi Arabian efforts, one can see immediately that Iran has all but surrounded Saudi Arabia against whom Iran has often claimed they desired the Saudi Arabian oil fields as well as taking control over the Holy Cities of Islam, Mecca and Medina which are also part of Saudi Arabia. The Saudi Arabian efforts in Yemen had early support from Egypt but President Sisi has enough troubles of his own and pulled out of the efforts in Yemen and began to work more favorably with Turkey and President Erdoğan.

 

An aside, one can only hope that Sisi has since reconsidered any siding with President Erdoğan as such could end up being an ill thought out plan with President Erdoğan appearing to have hegemonic dreams of his own and also having proven not exactly unopposed to siding with Iran when it suits his needs. This could prove particularly dangerous should President Erdoğan promise assistance in the Sinai Peninsula as his offer may have ulterior motives. Additional reasons for Saudi Arabian Royal Family concerns may be tied to the apparent exit by the United States from Syrian and Iraqi support for the Kurdish forces leaving them vulnerable to Iranian allies as well as Turkey’s President Erdoğan, the man who assured President Trump that abandoning the Kurds was necessary unless the United States was ready to support their declaring themselves independent, something both the State Department and Pentagon opposed. The exit by President Trump has left the Saudi Royal family nervous and seeking another power to ally with in order to pose a more formidable opposition force against Iran. This will be double should Turkey actually agree to ally themselves with the resurgent Shiite forces of Iran. That could prove tricky as Turkey is three-quarters Sunni, but then Iran has allied with Sunni Hamas and is wooing Sunni Fatah and PLO all in their effort to also encircle Israel. One can only wonder how long before Iran offers Egypt assistance with their troubles in the Sinai Peninsula as this would give them their final front with Israel and Saudi Arabia plus a direct route for arming Hamas. Iran may also pose a threat to Jordan as Jordan also borders Israel and Saudi Arabia.

 

One last reason for Saudi Arabia to desire allying with Israel is the obvious case that Israel is considered a nuclear armed nation and Iran is a borderline, if not already, nuclear armed state who will likely turn recognized nuclear within the next two to three years. This usually brings up the old story about how Saudi Arabia financed the Pakistani nuclear program and the two nations have an unspoken agreement that Pakistan was to provide Saudi Arabia with plans and as many as a dozen nuclear warheads upon a request from the Saudi Royal Family. That agreement, assuming that it ever existed, may fall upon the old adage of, “What have you done for me lately?” Time has passed and things have changed which means the people who made that long ago agreements have left the scene and the people who replaced them may not be as eager to provide the requested assistance. Probably the most that the Saudi Royal Family should expect might be the schematics and plans for the manufacture of nuclear weaponry and not the actual weapons and as the Pakistanis have very likely long since developed more advanced nuclear weapons including thermonuclear weapons all without Saudi Arabian assistance which probably makes the Pakistani government feel far less indebted to the Saudi Arabian Royal Family for their initial financing of the Pakistani crash effort to respond to the development of nuclear weapons by India. The Saudi Arabian Royal family likely already has checked and realized that their former agreement with Pakistan no longer holds water or nuclear warheads or possibly even the plans for a nuclear warhead or other device. This very probably has not made the Saudi Arabian leaders feel any more secure about the Iranian looming threats.

 

So, Saudi Arabia is facing the reality of the Pakistan deal having gone south, the United States pulling out of every hot spot in the Middle East, Egypt sliding away from the Saudi Royals and inching towards Turkey, feeling the Iranian noose tightening around their necks thus the Saudis are seeking someone, anyone to come and take some of the problem off their shoulders knowing that this time the United States has been caught flat-footed needing a friend badly. Israel is facing much the same problems, as are the Saudi leaders, and likely just as desirous of friends and allies upon which to depend coming to their side immediately. The difference is that Israel has been here before and her faith in Hashem has always provided exactly what the Israelis required. The proof was centered and has given Israel much to think and mull over. The Israelis have faced such a threat before and survived despite all odds. This still leaves much to consider before it is too late.

 

This forced the hand of the Saudi Government to act and seek new directions and friendships. Still, now that we have the time, what should Israel do in order to survive any Iranian threats, something which must be viewed as if being under a microscope? The idea to ally with Saudi Arabia has way too many holes to actually hold much promise. Israel must weigh exactly why they should enter into any relationship, especially with a nation which is still in a state of war with Israel. The Saudi Arabian peninsula has numerous oil fields and a means of gathering the Jews closer together. Israel is dependent on Hashem and need no other protections as Hashem made a promise and will be true to his words. Still, the Israelis will be alone facing a regional super power possibly after Saudi Arabia has been eliminated as one to be reckoned with leaving Israel feeling very vulnerable. Should Israel manage to be in such a position the United States would need to provide assistance though manpower would not necessarily be required. Israel might feel that the current case of threat requires her to rely on another and to seek to find such a nation. Israel has always stood by herself and honestly does not require any additional assistance to face down Iran. Starting to rely on people whom until recently sought her destruction would not be the most prudent of acts.

 

Saudi Arabian and Iranian Maneuvers in Middle East

Saudi Arabian and Iranian Maneuvers in Middle East

 

The leaders of the Arab world now seeking to ally with Israel would turn away the instant the threat has passed. Further, forming an anti-Iran alliance would result in placing Israeli Defense Force soldiers under foreign command. That would be nothing short of suicidal. Israel has an ally in this situation, and that ally is Hashem, just as she has always had. Yes, Israel might be wise to enter into a coalition which would strengthen her position, but should also be careful not to be used simply to strengthen their position leaving Israel with insufficient forces retained for her own defense. Israel has the capacity to defend herself and protect her borders and adding in her ability to launch in kind any strike likely to originate from Iran including nuclear. Israel would, inevitably when push comes to shove, have only herself to defend her people, as none of the Arab world would permit any of their soldiers to fight to protect Jews no matter the situation. Israel must contend with protecting Israel by herself with her own forces and their stamina to go the distance. Israel will have no others on which to defend her when Iran turns her attention to Israel. The sole responsibility for protecting the Israeli people falls to Israel. We do not see Arab forces rushing to our aid in a time of need, but can realize that many would be rushing to join our enemies in the efforts to defeat us.

 

This is part of why Israel must join those who refused Saudi Arabia’s invitation to join forces to fight Iran. One can readily see that the Saudi Arabian leadership would lead the sacrifice of everybody else’s troops before losing a single one of theirs. That is a bad deal, period. Israel should commit to her reliance in Hashem as she has always committed to doing when troubles brewed internally or externally. This next test Israel is facing will be one which tests her faith and at some point, it will take measure of the Jewish People and their collective faith in the Almighty. Should Israel pass this test, then we will know that we are prepared as a People to receive the Messiah and that the time is approaching where the Messiah will finally come to establish the Heavenly Kingdom here on Earth and peace will rule the world over for a very long period. We may very well be on the threshold of the ultimate deliverance of mankind, their final deliverance. We must be prepared for such an eventuality as we need be readied for such a monumental event. The last of our brethren who will be returning to Eretz Yisroel will be gathered to Israel by Hashem and the Messianic Age will be upon all of us with a Heavenly ruler whom we had best not disappoint.
