Palestinian Communities Slaughtered

 

In the past decade there have been a number of Palestinian communities completely destroyed and many of the civilians residing in these camps put under bombardment killing untold numbers. The media has barely noticed these events despite their being reported in local news. Mahmoud Abbas and the other Palestinian leadership in the Palestinian Authority, the PLO, Hamas and other leadership in both Gaza and Judea and Samaria have said nothing. They have had no reaction what so ever. Judging from their silence one would believe that these Palestinians meant nothing to the Palestinian leadership. What could have been the reason behind their silence? Further, there have been no dire reports or protests across Europe. Usually the Europeans react quite vehemently to even the slightest hint of any acts against Palestinians even with no proof of actual abuse. Why nothing coming from the Europeans with the destruction of these Palestinian communities? There has been almost no reaction from the United Nations or the plethora of their organizations that monitor human rights and the Palestinians community health whenever there are any suspicions of Israeli misdeeds. Yet these attacks have garnered no reactions whatsoever. That raises the question of why the quiet when these Palestinians have been slaughtered, their homes destroyed, their communities destroyed and those fortunate to survive sent homeless wandering the countryside with little if any hope for their future. Where are the cries of horror over these events?

 

What has not made the news has been the attacks by the Syrian military, Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Hezballah forces in Syria and Lebanon on the Palestinian camps and communities located in these nations. You might remember the news about attacks by Bashir al-Assad using barrel bombs, fifty-five gallon barrel sized explosive device filled with nuts, bolts, screws and nails often soaked with poisons designed to inflict the most horrific injuries to those it does not murder, on civilians. Well, what the news did not bother to inform the world about was that the majority of those attacks were against the largest Palestinian refugee camps in Syria. These camps were located in Homs, Deraa, Jaramana, Khan Eshieh, Qabr Essit, and others across all of Syria. Many of these camps have all but disappeared from the face of Syria with very few refugees remaining there, mostly old and sick who were unable of leaving. Bashir al-Assad claimed that the Palestinians, who are Sunni, had risen up against him and his Shia allies joining the terrorists which he was fighting in the beginning of the civil war and since. This was his excuse for attempting to eradicate these camps and the people trapped within. These attacks have continued periodically ever since getting less coverage with each attack as if it comes under covered that and it is old news. Anyways, these Palestinians are being slaughtered by other Arabs; we cannot blame Israel so it really does not matter.

 

Now the violence against Palestinians has spread to Lebanon. Over the past week fighting has spread across the Ein el-Hilweh camp outside Sidon. The violence has lasted much of the past week with a ceasefire finally being reached over the weekend and security forces provided by Fatah presumably are now in control of the camp and the violence has quieted for now. The news reports all make the same references that Fatah Palestinian forces are engaged with radical Islamists without making any further identification of exactly who these radical Islamists might be. One can only wonder why there has been no further identification as seen in the captions of the pictures below from the Associated Press. The one name used was reported in the demands by Palestinian Security Forces demanding that the Islamist fighter Bilal Badr surrender to authorities. A resident reported that parts of the camp suffered damage from shelling. This creates a threatening picture as the Palestinian Security Forces do not reportedly have artillery or other heavy weapons larger than RPG’s. Many of the refugees have attempted fleeing the camp largely being held in Mosques hoping to return to their homes and praying they have homes to return to. An AFP correspondent has reported that the refugee camp has suffered major damage with a number of residents having been trapped inside their homes throughout the fighting. UNWRA has begun attempting to return the camp to some degree of normalcy with dozens of young people volunteering on Friday to clean the streets of damage and rubble left by the fighting. The camp reportedly is home to over fifty-thousand Palestinians refugees including at least six-thousand Syrian refugees fleeing that violence only to now suffer more Arab on Arab violence.

This story will receive slim coverage, perhaps a blurb between the closing commercials and credits on the hourly news cycle once or twice every few days, a story almost in passing as an afterthought. Why has the slaughter of Palestinian Arabs in refugee camps in the thousands over the last five years escaped major coverage by the media in the Western media, especially the liberal media in the United States and across Europe? Where have the urgent demands emanating from the United Nations with cries of hysterias over the murder of these innocents, and Palestinian civilians even? Why no top of the fold, bold, two inch headlines in the New York Times telling of the slaughter of these Palestinians who want no more than to be allowed to live in peace and seek work? Perhaps the reasons are simple; Israel is completely missing from this picture. These are Palestinian Arabs behind barbed wire, refused the right to work in most professions, especially outside the camps, refused permission for normalization into the population despite the fact that a number of these refugees have families residing outside the camps who are citizens of Lebanon and also in Syria though many of them are now refugees themselves from the Syrian conflict. These are the forgotten Palestinian Arab refugees who only count as part of the presumed five to eight million refugees descendants of the original seven-hundred-thousand refugees, their children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and perhaps also great-great-grandchildren all forced to remain in the camps where their children will also be forced to live presumably permanently. These camps are home to the only refugees in the world who became refugees by heredity never to be permitted to merge with the society with which they share history, language, religion and often have relatives residing in the very nations refusing to permit their normalization. Why are these people being tortured in this way? They are the Arab weapon which they hope will destroy Israel when their demands that they be granted residence and citizenship in Israel and then vote in an Arab government which will destroy the Jewish population and end the Jewish State. The news will not report this either because to any normal mind this is beyond acceptable and borderline ridiculous. Their being murdered by other Arabs is not new, not of any consequence to the Arab world and unwanted by their own people but the world will some day declare war on Israel because Israel will refuse to accept these refugees as a problem Israel must solve. Israel sees this situation as what it is, an Arab problem and a sign of their neuroses. And that problem continues anew with more bombings and fighting in Syria which threatens to return to Lebanon as well.

A Great Awakening or a Rude Awakening: What Will It Be? written by Michael Brown Michael Brown Small Pic echoed our feelings on numerous levels and nailed much of the problem we have mentioned for the United States, European countries, Russia and with some adjusting would serve well here in Israel as well. The article pointed out that seeking the solution to national problems through the political front alone was simple folly. The candidates for President in the United States was sufficient proof that politics alone was a futile direction as a choice between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump was simply a choice between two massively flawed individuals whose ideas of truth, honesty and dignified stature in leadership leave so much to be desired and make the fact that any political solution will never be inspirational to correct the path of the public as a whole. Michael Brown noted this dilemma and his solution was for the United States to, for lack of a better phrase, to have a collective ‘come to Jesus’ moment. When we have talked of such, we have noted a return to the basic Judeo-Christian ethics upon which Europe and the United States and the rest of the Eurocentric world was based on and served it so well against previous attempts to invade and destroy and take over their areas by Islam in the past twelve-hundred years, that’s around a millennia and one quarter, also known as a very long time. The Judeo-Christian ethos solidified around 1500 through 1700 with the protestant reformation, the turning point in the wars with Islam and leading to the more open society able to embrace science and the progress and political revolutions all this envisioned and eventually produced based on the remnants of the Roman and Byzantine Empires and their adoption of the Greek representative governance which eventually led to the rule by the will of the people. This works for as long as the people are of a religious and forward looking public ready to sacrifice for the good of the community and the future of the nation and its people. That was where the Judeo-Christian ethics paid the societies great dividends. One could predict the health of a community simply by attending the churches on Sunday, and the Synagogues in the Jewish neighborhoods every morning and evening, and if they were being attended by healthy crowds then the society was healthy and if there were a sparse and paltry attendance with empty pews or seats, then the community was on a descent into oblivion. Europe has been followed by the United States by a mere ten to twenty years but inexorably the Americans have been catching up and both societies are showing the signs of ill health and decay.

Nobody wants to admit the problem and it can now be measured in the lack of babies in the nurseries of the hospitals, the closing of neighborhood schools due to lack of students and the dwindling reproductive rates where childbearing has dropped below, in some cases precipitously and perilously below, replacement levels demanding that immigrants be found to replace the lack of workers such that the society can afford to support their elderly and aging populations. The problem with this situation is that with time the new immigrants will become the majority of the work force and will resent their being taxed to support an aging population which is unlike them and to which they have no affinity or care. This will lead to a dangerous situation where simply ridding themselves of these old fossils will become an enticing idea and euthanizing these useless relics of the former glory will be the only solution that seems logical and these fossils will be too old, weak and few in number to prevent their slaughter. It may come quickly in a single night starting in one town and spreading across the continent with the blazing speed of an inferno and within a few weeks the problem of those who had become the other will be solved and the new majority will be rid of this burdensome and expensive problem and ready to enjoy their new found financial freedom. Imagine their joy having everything their way and the old once proud people vanquished more by their own hand and selfish “me thinking and lifestyle” than the actions of their final executioners.

 

Where in Europe and Russia things are approaching drastic and may become irreversible and the disastrous end will have become inevitable. Maybe the new peoples will be kind and simply place the “old ones” on reservations and treat them much as they had treated the civilization they replaced when conquering the New World. Perhaps the Native Americans will become an important part of the New America and that will be the perfect role reversal and payback almost in all of history. The United States would be more capable of turning everything around and their salvation would come from the most ignored and considered inconsequential of places politically, fly-over country. The middle of the nation where people, according to President Obama, “… they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” This quote is the perfect example of the problem with society which the political class represents and is indicative of the societies on the two coasts. It is the clinging to their religion and the Bible that just might start the revival necessary for the return to the next golden age in the United States and perhaps bring a reverse tide which might bring the restoration of Europe if it is already not too late for Europe. Britain might have saved themselves and might perhaps allow other nations to also find the path back to their roots and return to religion which is not anti-science as even Albert Einstein believed that there had to be a G0d because the universe was simply too complex but mathematically perfect to have come into existence purely through an accident. His was the G0d which was the harmony and reflection of the order of the universe as he explained once on April 24, 1929, Einstein cabled Rabbi Herbert S. Goldstein in German: “I believe in Spinoza’s God, who reveals himself in the harmony of all that exists, not in a God who concerns himself with the fate and the doings of mankind.” The entity in such beliefs is often referred to as the “Spinoza’s God” named after the philosopher Baruch Spinoza. Einstein is not the only science personage who believes strongly in God as many of the earliest theories of our Universe were first proposed by scientists who were also men of the cloth, some even worked from the observatory located within the complexes of Vatican City (see photo below). The Church has come a long way and no longer fights science as they did in the times of Galileo Galilei.

The truth which even science will not dispute is that as Europeans and, after them, Americans left their religions and began to live for the day and let tomorrow take care of itself are in many cases childless and their predominance in the populations of the Western World is leading to the death of these nations and their civilization. Islam is ready to take up any slack and turn Europe into a reflection of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and are already arriving with an advanced guard. The vast majority of the “Syrian refugees” are males between the ages of thirteen to eighteen up through forty or fifty. These could easily be classified as the age one could expect of a military expedition including privates, sergeants, captains all the way to generals. The strata of ages are even in close approximation to a military force and their actions depict a group intent on conquest over assimilation. The United States has a somewhat brighter picture as the most readily available immigrants are Mexicans and other Hispanics from Central and South America who are largely Christians. As long as the numbers of MENA refugees and illegal immigrants from MENA nations and keep the immigrants restrained to largely Christians, then the future may not be as drastic a change to the American societal influences while Europe has no real similar alternative unless they choose to import Christian immigrants from central and southern Africa and parts of Asia. This would require a definitive change from their current system where they are importing Muslims with little if any background checks of virtually any depth. Such is a recipe for disaster which has already been starting to crest and appear throughout Western Europe. Even Islamic strategic Imams have already claimed that this is a part of their plan for civilizational jihad and the destruction of the Western World through their own rules of freedoms using them to destroy the entire civil constructs and replacing Christianity as the main religion with Islam and then persecuting the remaining Christians and the secularists giving them the choice of adopt Islam or death. The plan is to gain sufficient numbers and then use the sword to conquer the West just as they have MENA and had conquered Spain and large swaths of Eastern Europe and the Balkans before being pushed back during World War I. That is correct, it was just about one hundred years ago when Islam was pushed from Eastern Europe and their Caliphate Empire, the Ottoman Empire, finally came crashing down at the same time the Austria-Hungarian Empire also collapsed and both were restructured and divided into individual countries by the Sykes–Picot Agreement. That is another clarification which needs correction; the Sykes–Picot Agreement altered the maps of Eastern Europe as well as areas of MENA as it forced the end of two empires, the Ottoman Empire and the Austria-Hungarian Empire.

 

What might be a good idea for the Western World would be to only accept as many Syrian and other MENA refugees in equal numbers as do Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States. The claim that Saudi Arabia does not have any accommodations for the refugees is the biggest lie. They have a set of air-conditioned tents with stoves and bathrooms and kitchens and bedding and living space for four to six people which are used to house adherents joining the Haj. As the Haj just ended these tents are still up and empty and could easily hold tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of refugees (see image below). The Saudis are refusing to take the refugees because these are not refugees but the first wave of an invasion and what good would it be to have Muslims invade Saudi Arabia as they are already Islamic. If there is to be an invasion then Europe must be the target, not Saudi Arabia. Western nations importing people who are neither secular nor Christian is opening their world to invasion and steady erosion leading eventually to the complete death of Western civilization.

There is one nation which has a civilization similar in many ways to the past Western World and their religious Judeo-Christian civilization and that is Israel. Israel has an open democratic parliamentary governance with freedom of religion, freedom of the media, freedom of speech (largely), as well as equality of women and men, no persecution of sexual deviants, freedom of sexual orientations, and most of the other freedoms and equalities as well as an independent judiciary and equality before the law. The difference is instead of a complete Judeo-Christian civilization it has a Judean civilization based on Torah as well as modern free democratic society. The main difference is that Israel is more Judeo than Christian and is moving further in that direction. Israeli population is currently heading in a number of desirable directions. The first and potentially most important is that the nation is becoming more religious. Another is the population is intermarrying which can only improve relations. There have been moves to change from having two separate Chief Rabbis to having a single Chief Rabbi for all Jews. Personally with an Ashkenazi father and a Sephardic mother I am all in favor of the merging of the two main bodies of Judaism. This will also have another effect as the secular members of Israeli society marry more religious members they will more often become more religious themselves rather than tear the other from their faith. As Israel is a young nation it still had an old soul and many are simply giddy with having returned to our homeland after almost a two thousand year exile. Some will claim that we have not been exiled anywhere near that long as we do not look old enough to have been exiled for almost two thousand years. Perhaps it will help if we also inform that every Jew is to believe they were slaves in Egypt, were part of the Exodus from Egypt, received the Law, Torah, at Mount Sinai, witnessed the presence of Hashem on the mountain, and were with the Israelites on their entry into the Promised Lands and experienced every calamity and exhilaration the Jews the world over throughout history have experienced whether that be suffered or celebrated. We have said “Next year in Jerusalem,” at the end of every Seder and after numerous prayers and it has been a dream of generation after generation of Jews. We have been instructed to have lived with every exiled Jewish family as we are a family and all related in some way, some distant, others very much closer. This has steeled us and made the Jew one of more resilient of peoples of the world and this has made the return to Eretz Yisroel all the sweeter. With our religious strength growing, we are going in the opposite direction than the growing secular Western world, and this is to our credit and will serve us well with larger families and greater closeness to Hashem who in return provides miracles large and small for each and all of us at the same time. These miracles only strengthen our faith and begin a growth in faith for some who had none at first. We can tell you that if you wish to see the difference between those who are a part of a growing religious community and those who are forfeiting their faith. One can simply make a study of the religious Jews of Israel and compare their faith with that of the least religious, leftist, progressive, liberal Jews in the United States. One group is growing and the other is heading towards extinction. The loss of our brothers and sisters and the coming of more in the coming months saddens us here in Israel as they were so close to coming home where being Jewish is something so much easier to pursue than it is in the United States which leads to more observance and a closer society which assist one another instead of compete against one another. Israel will grow in strength and religious power as time proceeds and we need not fear as faith increases and Hashem becomes more with us. We will fear no evil even in the shadow of death for Thou art with me.

Death of Two Cultures

 

The European Christian culture has been failing with so few attending to her needs that there has not even been an attempt at life support. About the only Eurocentric population which shows signs of life is the Evangelical Christians in the United States, and that culture could succumb to a numbing disease if indifference should they not continue to be led by honorable leadership. The initial signs of the disease of indifference and eventual collapse of the fold come when collecting monies for new buildings or redesign of the main chapel outweigh the spiritual which has simple needs and disdains frills. Christianity, on a brighter note, is flourishing in much of South America and southern and central Africa and there are few signs of the crippling disease afflicting these populations. Also at risk is Islam which is being overcome by violence which has largely been Muslim on Muslim violence except on the fringes where the Muslims fight or otherwise subvert any society to which they immigrate. With their increasing numbers their preaching and demands slowly evolve and change slowly advancing from immigrate to infiltrate to demands and finally to conquer and cleansing the population of the unbelievers and those deemed not pure enough in their faith. This was laid out by an entry in the CIA, “The World Fact Book, 2007.” We located this information in the below chart from a report by Edward Cline on the Family Security Matters website as part of an article titled, Jihad by the Numbers which was published on July 3, 2008. We have shortened the presentation to fit on a graph we drew adding a visual representation and the full thesis can be read at the above link. Anybody wishing a more detailed report with additional information including the actual nations at each stage from that date in 2008, most of the numbers are obviously dated but they give a starting reference point. The chart is below. The reality is the Syrian refugee policies of the Western World is a form of civilizational suicide. Importing refugees would be laudable but there should be restrictions such that the refugees the Western Nations are taking into their bosoms completely trusting that there is no possibility of anything untoward occurring is insanity. One reasonable limitation which would be justifiable would require that males between the ages of twelve to forty must be accompanied by their family, be that a wife and children or parents with siblings. People older than forty would be far less likely to be active in Jihad and thus no threat to the society as a whole. But allowing unchecked numbers of men of military age without families is not allowing refugees within the borders as much as permitting the forward advance of a military invasion to establish bases of operations.

 

Jihad by the Numbers

 

Some of the results of allowing normal immigration have been demonstrated in Paris with the riots each summer and the practice of setting vehicles alight burning into the night. These riots filled not only the poorer suburbs of Paris but also Marseilles and other French large metropolises with large Muslim neighborhoods. These styles of events have spread further to Amsterdam, Malmo, Berlin, Frankfort and other cities in Germany, the Netherlands and throughout Scandinavia. The only places spared thus far have been Switzerland and the Eastern bloc nations who refused to allow refugees to enter unless they were proceeding on to Germany, France or anywhere but within their borders. The other nations spared thus far have been those like Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy and others facing economic hardships severe enough that their benefit payments to citizens have been drastically reduced or temporarily, or maybe permanently, terminated as a measure to attempt to regain some economic footing and be able to climb out of their debt traps. Another limit which should be implemented is if these plans were to permit refugees from the horrific fighting and devastation plaguing Syria, then only those who can prove they are from Syria should be permitted entry. Is it unfair to demand that refugees from a particular civil war prove they actually resided where that war is taking place. Allowing also Afghanis, Pakistanis, Iraqis, Iranian and who knows where else to also take advantage of a plan to assist Syrians is only asking for trouble. Europe does not have the economic power to import an additional group of people who will begin to represent upwards from fifteen percent to as high as forty percent of the population, it simply can not and will not work. This also goes for the United States and especially Canada whose population is nowhere near that of other nations her size. What would be wrong with demanding that Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States plus Kuwait take in an equal number of refugees as has Europe? Jordan and Turkey most certainly cannot afford to take in vast numbers of new refugees despite there already being thousands in refugee camps pitched on their borders with Syria and already causing distress and other problems. Even with Israel quietly providing additional electricity and water to Jordan dedicated to assisting with housing and providing water and essentials for the growing hundreds of thousands who have fled to Jordan, the refugee camps collected near the border are overflowing and are out of room. Just what the Middle East needed was more refugees in camps, that has worked so well in the past. All this and Saudi Arabia which erected an entire tent city with airconditioned tents which has bathrooms and other amenities has simply refused to assist their Arab brethren (tent city pictured below).

There is a simple reason why Saudi Arabia and the other Gulf States or Iran with its recent inflow of billions of dollars due to the Nuclear Deal are refusing to accept even a single refugee and Iran is even providing some of their own to infiltrate Europe, and that is the key word, infiltrate. This is the beginning of the end for Europe as it has been known and it may already be too late to save all of Europe, but whatever areas can be salvaged, those efforts need to be implemented immediately as time is limited. The frightening thing is the coming United States elections, for President and Congress, is vitally important and will decide whether the United States joins the bulk of Europe in diving off the high dive into an empty pool without the waters of liberty and freedom to catch their dive as these waters are going to be drained away as the civilization is sold wholesale to the barbarians coming through the gates. What makes all of this so desperately sad is the people could still prevent the complete collapse of Europe but because they have chosen hedonism and self-interest over having real families with children they have chosen the path to oblivion. Some use their work as their excuse for not having children, others are honest enough to come out and say that they do not want the “burden” of a family with children, life is so much more fun when all your money and time is spent on me. Europe and most of the United States are made up of the “me” generations. The original “me” generation was the baby-boomers but there were so many of them there were sufficient numbers still having complete families. The statistics on the Millennials are even more stark than they were for the Boomers and many claim it was the poor economic state of the world during their prime family years and now they are gone beyond that point where they could ever have sufficient children to replace their numbers, let alone grow the population. Economic indicators still are pretty much stuck at zero and that is another item which had best be on the next President’s and Congress’s urgent ‘to do’ list. The work which would be required will take fortitude and a new outlook on the job of Washington D.C. The idea they will need to wrestle with will be two-fold; first they need to reduce taxes, both capital gains and business taxes and second they need to deregulate the nation starting from the top. Once this has been accomplished they can move on to doing something which should have been part of their jobs all along, reducing the size, scope, numbers and impositions of the federal government. They need to empower the states and disempower the federal government making all but subservient to the individual states. They need to go through every inch of the federal bureaucracy and see if it passes the Tenth Amendment test. The Tenth Amendment reads;

 

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

 

It is a remarkably short and concise statement which basically states that the Federal Government is restricted in all things and if at all possible for the individual states or the people themselves are capable of addressing things, then it should be left to their discretions and Washington should steer clear. We call it the mind your own business and stay out of ours amendment. Should the federal government actually restrain itself and remain within the constraints of the Constitution, and especially Amendment X, the nation would prosper and the people would rejoice in their new found freedoms and also have the control over their lives returned to their neighborhood and not way off in Washington, which in reality is far, far away from anywhere which has even a modicum of reality. Until Washington leaves much if not almost all of ruling and running the domestic life in the United States and instead works to settle differences between the states when necessary and otherwise allows them to rule themselves and the people can choose which state best meets their dreams, demands and choices there will be dissatisfaction with Washington and distrust of politicians and feel their lives are beyond their control. Ask the average American what they desire from Washington in particular and government in general and they will likely respond be left alone to run their own lives as they choose. Once the Federal Government takes its responsibility for protecting the people from the evils the world may send their way, their assigned duties are complete. That is presumably the first and foremost job for the Federal Government and is its most sacred Constitutional responsibility. Other than this it is to settle differences between the individual states and aid each in learning from the more successful states but not to interfere or force any state into changing their means of expediting their affairs as long as they harm no other state. Instead the United States Federal Government had joined the Europeans who have decided that suicide is their best means of survival.

 

They watch as their numbers of citizens drop and drop while their schools and churches lie empty as if disowned by their populace and believe they can fill the void with refugees from the Middle East and North Africa and they are making a dreadful mistake. Their belief that they can replace their population with Islamics who refuse to assimilate and instead seek to replace their society with their Sharia is worse than misplaced, it is suicidal and they will be the most likely to suffer the greatest fall. It is a shame that their people will also lose all they have and possibly their freedom and then their lives unless they surrender their lives and souls to Allah, the very souls they know not that they have. That the current President of the United states has been importing “Syrian refugees” by the tens of thousands very likely without the approval of Congress, but then this President has had little use for the Congress. One of the candidates for President has promised those who back this importing of “refugees” that they will bring them in at a rate of at least five times the rate should they be elected. Many of the American people know not of this promise and almost as many probably know little or care about the consequences which will result. They do not spend their time worrying about such things; their lives take sufficient amounts of their time as they care for their families as they should. They have faith that their government, their Federal Government, takes care to protect their shores and thus their families. If only they know, if only they knew.
