State Department Declaring Open Season on Middle East and Israel

 

We once predicted Rex Tillerson would be a problem for Israel in particular and much of the Middle East as a whole. Secretary of State Tillerson belongs with the State Department with only one shortcoming; he is an Arabist and not a supporter of the new Persians in Iran. Making his position to be at odds with his own department will come when the struggle finally turns to Iran against Saudi Arabia. Rex Tillerson, before becoming Secretary of State for President Trump, was the CEO for ExxonMobil and as such had many enjoyable and enriching relations with the Saudi Royal Family. In that position, Rex Tillerson was granted honors and received with feasts and joyous celebrations. He saw the most shining and generous side of Saudi Arabian culture as he was an honored guest who brought great prosperity with his visits which enriched the Royal Family. He would have stayed in five star hotels in the finest suites available and eaten at royal feasts so it is no wonder that he has great affection, respect and possibly love for the Saudi Arabian rulers, and thus favors their nation which he has only seen their best side. One cannot blame the man for the views he gained in a lifetime of working in the oil industry.

Another problem with Rex Tillerson and the State Department is their view that the Kurds should postpone their September 25th vote and any consideration of declaring their independence until it will be more suitable to the understandings and outlook of the United States State Department. Imagine a people, a proud people with a history and who had their own nation until empires came and erased their nations and enslaved them and who, despite the best efforts of Saddam Hussein and his chemical weapons, survived and have been the ones who initially stopped ISIS leading to the current offensive and the best hope for their defeat, having to wait until the United States State Department decides they are ready for their own country. Had President Truman listened to the State Department, the United States would not have recognized Israel but President Harry Truman listened to his mother growing up and read his Bible and was a good man who decided he would listen to his mother and his learnings as a youth over some government department. Now we need to hope that President Trump, another president whose last name begins with a “T” like Harry S. Truman, also can find his way to disregard the State Department and give the Kurds recognition simply because they deserve the recognition and any assistance they require as they have carried the fight against Islamic State for the world. But Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and his State Department have not changed since 1948 where they simply do not believe that people can have their own nation without their permission. With any good fortune, the Kurds will hold their vote, take the world by the horns and declare their independence and the world has the great goodness to recognize their aspirations and recognize that without the Kurds, ISIS might still be rampaging across the Middle East instead of being pushed out of Mosul with the Kurds playing a major role.

 

The Middle East is going through a period of great turmoil shaking off the old lines imposed upon them by the Europeans at the close of World War I. After World War I, the victors (Britain, France, Russia, Italy and Japan) decided where the new boundaries and borders with much of the decisions made by two men, British diplomat Mark Sykes and a French diplomat François Georges-Picot, called the Sykes–Picot Agreement. The lines were drawn with no regard to tribal allegiances, without regard to Sunni and Shiite observance and simply decided on how the major powers decided they would carve up the remains of the former Ottoman Empire. These lines were set up in such a way as served the major powers in Europe and the Russians agreed as they were given some parts of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire and protected them from any resurgence from Turkey. Russia also was in the weakest position as they had left the war early after the revolution unseated the Tsar and the Communists had finally established governance which was to last until almost the end of the Twentieth Century. The Middle East was colonized mostly by the British, French and Italians who gave up their colonies mostly by the end of World War II through until around 1970 (see map below). Still, the nations that were formed were ungovernable resulting in mostly dictatorships, which suppressed most of the population. This led to such leaders as Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi, Hafez al-Assad, Gamal Abdel Nasser, Abdullah I bin al-Hussein and the Saudi Royals and their successors. Now the Middle East is making its first steps to figuring out where the lines need be drawn and what belongs to whom and everything else. Like any continental shifts in a world, the Middle East will take some time to shake out and there will be those who believe they are entitled to an empire on the backs of others while still other leaders will refuse to surrender rights to their people. This will be where the State Department will take their position that nobody deserves anything without their consent.

Now the State Department is demanding that President Trump demand that Israel return seventy-five-million dollars voted for Israel to build additional equipment for their defense against rockets and missiles which Israel requires to upkeep their defenses. The State Department demands these finances be returned as they exceeded the limitation that President Obama placed upon Israeli aid. The State Department claims that Israel lobbied Congress for the additional funds. Many in Congress claim that they voted for the funding without any requests or coaxing from the Israelis. Senator Lindsay Graham, Republican of South Carolina, stated, “Congress is not a party to this agreement nor is this agreement binding on future congresses. Congress has an independent duty to make a decision about the proper level of support for Israel or our other allies. To suggest this will bind future presidents and Congresses for the next decade is constitutionally flawed and impractical.” Many have commented that this is an internal war within the United States government where the Department of State is doing everything they are capable to drive a wedge between the Trump Administration and the Israelis. There are those in Congress who have their hackles up over this claiming that they had no part of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that they feel President Obama forced and threatened on the Israelis. They also declare that it is the duty and responsibility of the Congress and that no President, especially any past President, can limit or restrict their decisions on spending beyond their veto power. Once a President has left office, he can no longer veto Congressional legislation once passed, only the sitting President has such power and the Congress has promised to flex their power and pass legislation to resend these funds should the State department win this round. This is a war that will decide exactly how much influence Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and his Department of State are going to have over the Administration of President Trump. In all honesty, we hope that their influence will be as minimal as possible as it has been our opinion that the Department of State has been on the wrong side of history and the fight from the very start from before World War II onward. We will be watching this test for President Trump as if he gets this one wrong, then we will know that there is troubles coming.

Sacrificing Kurds Along with Iraq to Iran

 

Currently the world and particularly the United States are all concerned with and paying tunnel-vision-style attention on North Korea and ignoring, as a consequence, Iran. This will prove to be a mistake which the world can ill afford. The current actions, backed by Iran and given a nod of agreement by the United States, are moving to take complete control over Mosul and pushing the Kurdish forces further north. The Kurds had been intending, if we read them correctly, to maintain forces in Mosul and retain the city rejoining it to their area of control as it had been a Kurdish stronghold and center of culture before Saddam Hussein forced the Kurdish from the city and flooding it with Sunni Arabs. Now the Iraqi government with strong IRGC support from Iran is once again forcing the Kurds from Mosul and this time placing Shiites in Mosul along with trusted and controlled Sunni militia. Their reasoning is multi-leveled and includes but not limited to control of the northern hub of transportation and communications for northern Iraq, using their Sunni trained former ISIS members to face off with what they regard as renegade Shiites following Muqtada al-Sadr, control over the Mosul Hydroelectric Dam Complex, and a final thrust into the heart of any Sunni forced beyond IRGC control in Iraq. Thus far, the United States has largely sat on the sidelines providing intelligence and some weapons and air support and has removed themselves from any final decisions concerning the future of Mosul.

We have been led to believe that central behind this attitude is the State Department which has strong pro-Iranian core put in place by President Obama over his eight years. Where Secretary Rex Tillerson stands on this is unknown, but we suspect that he has been persuaded by the Saudi Royals that allowing the Kurds to form their own country in their upcoming vote would be ruinous for them but appears not to have received any directive or missed the memo which would have told him allowing Iran to gain control would be even worse. From all intents and purposes which have been discernable, appearances are that pushing back the Kurds from Mosul had taken priority to holding the line against spreading Iranian influence. The Mosul Dam Complex at peak power provides over one-mega-watt of power and generates over one-giga-watt of power annually providing almost all of northern Iraq with its electricity. Iranian control of this dam could spell the end of any Kurdish hopes for independence, for Kurdistan would be then dependent upon the Iraqi government to provide power, something their Iranian masters might use to crush the Kurds at a subsequent time. Mosul must end up in Kurdish hands along with the Mosul Hydroelectric Dam complex. The Kurds have already signaled they would continue to permit electrical power to flow to all of northern Iraq and not just their area of control. We seriously doubt the Kurds can expect the same cooperation from Iraq or Iran. What the leadership of the United States need remember is that North Korea and Iran are coordinating for their mutual gains, they cooperate on both nuclear and missile technologies, and finally that Iran is flush with American monies and will use them to gain hegemonic control of the Middle East and plans of then fulfilling the Quranic instruction to conquer the world and rid it of all disbelievers wherever they are found. Such a cleansing would include Sunni and other non-Shiite Muslims and the imposition of Sharia of the Tehran Ayatollah style. Iran sees themselves as the modern Persian Empire only this time an Islamic empire rather than multi-cultural.

 

North Korea is a certain and present threat but beyond launching missiles and possibly marching into South Korea and obliterating Seoul if they choose, they pose little threat of world conquest or any real conquest. Beyond South Korea and Japan, North Korea might pose a five to ten missile launch threat which the United States has assured all involved that they can intercept such an attack or even one twice that size. North Korea does not pose a serious follow-on threat after their launch beyond the threat they have posed since the late 1950’s to attack South Korea with human waves styled assault and the demolishing of Seoul with originally mostly artilleries and now additionally rocketry and missiles. Iran has already signaled their intentions when they began reeducating and further training the ISIS fighters they deemed worthy whom they had captured while taking Mosul. The best they have forced into a Shiite mold and others they allowed to remain Sunni. The Sunni are the sacrificial force which will, at some time in the future, be used to depose and destroy the power structure of Muqtada al-Sadr located largely in southern Sadr City district in Baghdad. Iran has de facto control of all the territory controlled by the Iraqi government. Iran had previously announced their intentions to wield a Shiite Crescent across the Middle East. This they currently have reaching from the Indian Ocean across Iran, Iraq, Syria and through Lebanon to the Mediterranean Sea. Then the Iranian leadership stated a desire to encircle Saudi Arabia which they accomplished with the use of the Houthis in a civil war in Yemen. This plus further attempts to include the Gulf States in their circle of influence and they are pretty much in control of the Middle East (see map below). Iran needs to finish taking control of all of Syria in the south in order to cement the link to Iraq, something they are accomplishing with relative ease having Russian air support. This is why they must be prevented from closing their power in Mosul, the key to the north of Iraq. We know not who, but suspect the State Department, told President Trump to sacrifice the Kurds, but they gave bad advice. Even had the advice been given in order to serve Saudi Arabia, that idea is misleading because allowing Iran to wrest control of Mosul simply empowers Iran further and weakens the Saudis. Despite the Saudi distaste for the Kurds, the Kurds and their dream of Kurdistan including Mosul is the best thing the Saudis could pray and hope to achieve to provide them with security.

There are other problems concerning the rising hegemony by Iran. They are once again providing monetary and supplying military goods to both Hamas in Gaza and Hezballah in Lebanon. Iran has de-facto control of Lebanon and Hezballah has almost exclusive control over the Lebanese armed forces and all of the Russian and America equipment including numerous Abrams heavy battle tanks and Apache attack helicopters provided to Lebanon by President Obama, taking their word that Hezballah was not in control as honest. It is highly suspected President Obama knew he was directly arming Hezballah but that is a done deed and blame is irrelevant. The truth is the Iranian arming of Hamas and the taking of all weapons from the Lebanese military has placed new and viable threats on the northern and southern borders of Israel. There have already been rumors and talk that should another war inevitably come pressed upon Israel by Hamas, Hezballah or both in a coordinated assault, Israel will have little if any choice but to fight these wars differently this go-around. No longer can Israel afford their “mow the grass” method of destroying most of the infrastructure and arms caches and avoid direct confrontations when possible leaving the fighting forces and command and control centers, often placed in the basements of hospitals, intact and not destroyed. The Israeli military, and starting to grip the political class with the necessity of the next war brought on by Hezballah, has to be fought to destroy Lebanon as a fighting force and possibly liberate the nations and return it to being a Christian nations this time protected by Israel forcing any Islamist ideology from within the borders. Further, the same may also be the result sought for Gaza should Hamas and Islamic Jihad and friends start launching hundreds of missiles and rockets a day into Israel, this time including her major cities, then Israel will likely change to a complete eradication of the terror forces in Gaza.

 

Should these scenarios come to pass, there will be a great amount of screaming coming from the European Union and the United Nations and many of the nations allied with Iran and the United States State Department. Israel will need to stick to her plans and if necessary, break relations with the European Union and United Nations. They need to act completely independently and without fear of threats to not provide military aid if Israel does not comply with the demands of the United Nations or other nations or groups of nations. This means that Israel need have developed and in place the ability to manufacture preferably fifth or sixth generation aircraft and fourth generation aircraft as a minimal level and as providing backup to the more expensive fifth or sixth generation aircraft. Israel will also require maritime production facilities that could be built between Akko and Haifa using the Akko Bay as their waterfront after some dredging. The aircraft industry could be placed in the Negev or the Galilee thus these projects along with munitions factories would provide badly needed jobs and increase the tax base possibly permitting a drop in the VAT tax rate relieving many Israelis financial woes. The added tax base and revenues would very likely exceed current foreign aid from the United States which would allow Israel to cut all umbilical cords which are currently used to force her to make concessions which are against her best interests.

 

There would be many other gains made should Israel develop her own arms industries, as this would also permit Israel selling advanced armaments to nations who pose no threat to Israel. Such commercial accounts would also permit Israel to influence these nations to assure they do not provide aid or comfort to any Israeli enemies. This could provide Israel with a wedge to drive between many of the developing world and their current Arab arms providers. Further, Israel could develop the best air-frames and other military technologies and thus not be dependent upon other countries to provide these weapons systems. Israeli ability to out-engineer most of even the developed nations when it comes to weapons systems was proven as Israel took the early lead in drone development as well as a continuing advanced ability in projectile interception as the Israeli Iron Dome systems have proven and Israeli ballistic missile interception includes one system which is also capable of taking satellites out of their orbits and destroying them. This is a capability that has the United States seriously considering buying some batteries of this system for protection against both Iranian and North Korean satellites which could harbor dangerous weapons payloads. Israel has proven capable of tackling anything which she is required of performing but has gone too long dependent upon the United States for her munitions and her aircraft and needs to break that dependency.

 

Conclusions are that first and foremost the United States need support the Kurds in taking and retaining control of Mosul or face a Middle East where Iran runs the show and Saudi Arabia is encircled and under threat. Israel need read the tea-leaves and realize that they are but three or four elections going the wrong way from losing their protection from the United States as the next generation take over the positions of power. Nations have interests which change with little notice and not friends forever. Nations do not form BFF’s on Facebook with other nations. They do enter into and back out of alliances as regularly as people buy new vehicles. The Europeans have a short period where if they awaken and realize their errors they can begin and potentially save their continent. This would require them teaching the next generations that the purpose in life is to seek happiness and satisfaction and this is most easily accomplished through families, nice, large families. They need to regain an appreciation for the Judeo-Christian Ethic which built them into the most powerful force on Earth. They need to remember that work gives one a purpose and sense of accomplishment, especially when everyone is working at a position they enjoy and is at least slightly challenging. They also need to save their education systems which currently produce spoiled children incapable of facing the slightest upset. These snowflakes who have been indoctrinated rather than educated may end up incapable of even running to the store, let alone run a nation or the world. If the Judeo-Christian philosophy and work ethic is to survive, it will require being taught as what it has proven to be, the most open and successful system for governance which can produce a future which strives to accomplish great feats reaching for the Moon and beyond. The other choices may be the Chinese central governance with limited economic freedom and even less actual freedom or worse yet; the coils of Fundamentalist Islam which will stifle all creativity, imagination and progress will slide back into another Dark Ages which may actually signal the end of human development and an end to freedom of any variety. Should freedom be lost in Europe, it will be lost for the foreseeable future and not only will the children grow up in a form of bondage, so will the grand children and probably their grandchildren after them for twenty or fifty or even a thousand generations. This is all that is at stake and freedom once lost is never regained in less than four generations, and that is a long time. We are aware how unlikely this appears but trust that it is on the horizon, getting larger, and is not a joking matter and something the West need focus on and prepare or surrender now and may your chains wear lightly on your children and their children.

Abbas Issues Demands so Israel Must Demand Abbas Go

 

We would love to say the story has shown definitive signs of change, but alas, they have this ugly persistence to remain the same. There is a standing reason why things have not and will not change, that reason is Mahmoud Abbas. The United States under President Trump originally demanded that the Palestinian Authority (PA) cease all payment to terrorists as well as their families for their murder of Israelis, especially Jews. This was an appalling demand for Abbas who treated it as an anathema to his continued role as President. Abbas threatened to dissolve the PA and resign from the twelfth year of his four-year term forcing Israel to deal with the problems of providing for the PA residents, the PA’s Arabs. Israel, according to Abbas, would be incapable of providing services for the Arabs currently presumably provided for by the PA. What makes his threat a joke is that Israel already provides much of the electricity, water, sewage, roads, gas and other utilities and services, not all, but most and currently for free. Should Israel be forced by the dissolution of the PA to care for the Arabs, it would likely work out as a boon to both the utility companies and the Arabs as well. Their economy would no longer be subjected to the harsh regulations, taxes and bullying by Abbas and the PA henchmen they call their Security Forces. They are more like enforcers for the mafia which runs the territory. The IDF already provides the security for Abbas and his cabal, so keeping the peace will not be much of an additional demand. The individual towns and cities could return to being ruled by the dominant family of their area and under this hold, semiautonomous rule.

 

That is the reason that Abbas would never go through with the threat to dissolve the PA. He knows that the people over whom he presumes to rule would soon celebrate the freedom they would gain once he dissolved the PA and Israel removed Abbas, his officers, the security forces and the remainder of the PA power structure and turned the Arabs over to their true family leadership, each town to its family and each family responsible for the peace in their area. These families would actually work to prevent terrorism from emanating from amongst their people, their Arab friends and neighbors, as they would prefer not to have the IDF interfering with their authority and rule. Their only demand is for their people to reside in peace and have security and for them to flourish and live a full and healthy life. Israel using the IDF would provide the security from outside interference in exchange for the Arab lead families to secure their towns and prevent terrorists from originating there. The families would collect taxes and with those funds pay for the utilities and other services provided by Israeli companies and the government and be responsible for whatever tax agreement was made with Israel. The relationship would be mutually beneficial, as the Israelis would prevent inter-familial fighting and other threats to the leaders of each town.

 

Abbas realizes that he would no longer be receiving the millions upon millions of Euros and Dollars from all the fools in the world. Abbas and his coterie are never going to give up their little fraud suckling at the teat of the United Nations, UNRWA, European Union, United States, European nations and the other nations of the world fool enough to contribute to the PA racket. They have all become millionaires with them each having stuffed away hundreds of millions of Dollars and Euros into their Swiss accounts. Add the fact that Abbas and his closest cadre get to travel the world freely and be treated by the leadership of Europe, the United States, the United Nations and other organizations as royalty given the respect with dinners and banquets. And then there is the coup de grace, all the time they get to plan and execute terror attacks against Israel and murder all the Jews they can and the world gives them cover and a complete pass and the more Jews they murder, the greater the honors they receive, especially in Europe and the United Nations.

 

For a terror master there is no sweeter gig than the one Yasser Arafat set up with the assistance of the United States State department and a cadre of leftist Israelis who saw the opportunity to get their names down in history as the great peacemakers. Abbas inherited this PA from Arafat and, playing Yasser in a suit and tie, has played the part to the hilt and raped the world for his blood money. The real sadness is the great eagerness with which the world praises this murderous bloodsucker and Jew killer. And the game is starting anew with President Trump and his administration. President Trump need be given a degree of credit for his appointment of United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and he displayed true anger over the lies told by Abbas at the White House press conference once he was shown the reality. But now, it appears, President Trump has fallen into the regimen proposed most likely by the State Department, and likely endorsed fully by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, of sending emissaries proposing peace and begging at the feet of Mahmoud Abbas waiting to be told what the United States must squeeze from Israel so that there can be a photo op at the White House with Abbas, President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu before Abbas betrays his word and walks away from any and all promises blaming Israel for existing as the reason for his betrayal. Then the Europeans, European Union, United Nations and the State Department all condemn Israel for missing another opportunity to surrender completely before the PA. We have witnessed this same song and dance ever since Oslo in September of 1993 and it will continue until something changes, and we have an idea what it will take.

There is one dirty little secret about this charade and that is that those who started this fiasco are the only ones who can end it. Abbas sure will never end this fools errand as he gains wealth, power, respect, legitimacy and most of all, an unending flow of money. That leaves only Israel who can bring this debacle to an end, but it will take somebody with great self-assurance and a brave heart. It will take a Prime Minister of Israel ready to stand up to the world and say loudly and clearly, “Never Again!” This Prime Minister will not crave the power or the prestige of the office and will have pursued the position mainly to use it to an end which will place their name in history and legends. They seek these neither but know they will be their legacy though they will be scorned most the days of their remaining life. This Prime Minister who we cannot name for they may not yet be born, probably has not even dreamed of the office or their place in history and we know not if they will be a man or woman, we just know they will live with a singleness of purpose once they realize their singular dream. They will win the office by doing something unusual, pure honesty, as they will promise that they finally end the peace which has eluded all their predecessors. They will promise a peace which will make all Israelis happy in time and will make the main settlements and all of Jerusalem all part of Israel proper and end the wars with the Arabs. Their coalition will be solid but depending upon the support of at least on rival party which joined the coalition conditional on peace being reached as expected.

 

This Prime Minister will do the United States, United Nations, European Union, European nations and the world the favor of allowing one attempt at making peace with the leader of the PA. When the PA does as usual and demands the release of two-thousand prisoners and another freeze on settlement building in order to meet, this Prime Minister does the unexpected and releases the prisoners and agrees to the freeze, but only if their meeting produces progress. The meeting with the sitting President of the United States and his emissaries and the President of the PA will go exactly as the Prime Minister expected as the PA will demand the 67 borders, half of Jerusalem, all the Jewish Holy Places in Hevron, Old City of Jerusalem, and the heartlands of historic Eretz Yisroel as described in Torah and the remainder of the prisoners released. The Prime Minister claimed that such concessions would require more deliberations and waited for the right and perfect moment, the photo op on the White House lawns where the Prime Minister was expected to make nice, pledge their support for the ‘two state solution’ and shake the hand of the PA leader. When the time comes for the Israeli Prime Minister to speak, they speak from their heart knowing that they will likely not be Prime Minister by morning. They speak truth and state that the Oslo Accords are dead and have been since the early twenty-first century. He will explain that Israel will give each and ever PA Arab the opportunity to emigrate after selling their lands and assets at a fair price and a special relocation allowance or they can remain as a legal resident alien with full rights accorded such. They will have religious rights, land rights, legal rights but will not have political rights except in local elections in the towns which will be designated as Arab ruled.

 

Upon a stormy return to Israel where some thousands of leftist demonstrators meet this Prime Minister at the airport, holding signs claiming their leader has murdered any hope for peace for all eternity. The Prime Minister kept to the announcement and immediately sought any nation willing to take the PA leadership and the commanders of their security forces. Within a few weeks these PA officials have all be relocated to the nations who voluntarily gave them refuge, some amongst the Arab world with others went to Europe and even a few were accepted by the United States. All these arrangements were negotiated and conducted with assistance from the United States, European Union and United Nations.

 

There was a suit brought before the International Criminal Court by the PA, but they were distraught as the verdict was that Israel had the legal rights to the lands from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. It later became known that the United States Secretary of State had visited the PA leadership before they left Washington and advised them against attempting taking their claims before any of the World Courts, as they would most definitely lose. They were warned that all their predecessors knew that the only means of gaining any of the lands set aside by the League of Nations for the formation of the Jewish State was through the same means as was used to form the Arab states of Jordan and Gaza, through the agreements of the Jews, the Zionists themselves. As long as the Zionists, the Jews did not release their claims to the land, then the lands of the British Mandate Lands would remain an aside for the Jewish State. The sole reason Jordan was permitted to be formed was because the Zionist Congress signed an agreement, the Churchill White Paper in which they released the lands east of the Jordan to the British to use to absolve their promise to the Hashemites and the Arabs. Gaza was wrenched from the Jews and Israel through the perfidy of the works of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and President George W. Bush who knew they were telling deceits to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon but he was ill and seeking immortality as the one who made peace, and instead he placed Hamas forever on the southern border of Israel. That is how those lands were torn from the grasp of Israel. For the meantime, let us pray that no more Prime Ministers will seek to be the one who makes peace at the cost of more of our holy lands before a real Prime Minister will exercise the right of a sovereign state to defend and protect all within their rightful borders.
