Another Useless European Gesture

 

According to reports by the BBC, Britain, France, and Germany, the three European nations who took part in the negotiations with Iran have warned Iran that any further breaches of the agreement could force them to act and leave the agreement. Such an eventuality presumably would cause the collapse of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Such a move is said to make it possible for the United Nations to reapply economic and other sanctions against Iran as well as the European Union or at least Britain, France and Germany. Some reports have actually appeared anxious worried that such a collapse of the JCPOA would free Iran to restart the entire nuclear program. Additionally, within days Hezballah leader Hassan Nasrallah threatened to start sending terrorists into Israeli territory. While interviewed by Lebanon’s Massir magazine, Nasrallah was quoted stating, “The enemy is right now in a defensive position. Once we were constantly on the defensive, now we are threatening the enemy, not the opposite. We will enter the occupied territory of Palestine.” These are two related facts which should be seen as one entirety and not as separate in any way. Hezballah does not act independent of their Iranian masters. This will be escalated and was meant to be a shot across the bow warning Britain, France, and Germany not to withdraw from the JCPOA or be blamed for instigating a war in the Middle East, or should we call it by its real name, yet another war with Iran as the instigator in the Middle East.

It has been part of the Iranian world policy, you upset Iran and Hezballah will start a large-scale confrontation with Israel unless Iran is further appeased. Iran wears the JCPOA as an accessory by which it can frighten Britain, France, and Germany, and the European Union into any act of appeasement to what Iran fancies. The Iranian threat has been that they are forced by that eternal evil, ever ignorant and wild cowboy in Washington D.C., President Trump, to bend and even break specific parts of the JCPOA as Iran no longer felt constrained by the treaty if the Americans were no longer constrained from sanctioning Iran. The catch for all involved has been that Iran was never restrained by the JCPOA as we have reported repeatedly (see here, here, here and here). We also have shown that Iran was not even following the weak restrictions they claim that they had agreed upon and only not complying with those extreme measures that the United States claimed were included and that they had never agreed to place them in the agreement. Simply stated, Iran has been producing whatever weapons they desire and researching at full speed further nuclear weapons to add to their arsenals.

 

The real question is not so much are Britain, France, and Germany going to depart the JCPOA, but is whether or not they will join with President Trump in reapplying sanctions on Iran and end their comfy little trade deals by which they were making millions of dollars. One can blame the European powers for trading with Iran, but how else were they going to benefit from the billions of dollars lavished upon Tehran and the Mullahs by President Obama. Should Britain, France, and Germany actually leave the JCPOA, the next big question is over sanctions and whether or not this signals they are willing to work with President Trump. If Britain, France, and Germany are unwilling to work with the United States on sanctioning Iran, then any such announcement concerning leaving the JCPOA is just empty rhetoric. But there would be more than Iran finally coming clean about their continuing to develop nuclear weaponry as fast as they could, there would also be the war Iran wound instigate, if not actually order, against Israel to punish the world for their insult and blaming Britain, France, and Germany for their aggressive actions.

 

As we stated above, Nasrallah does not act without permission and orders from Iran. That is why the threats from Nasrallah were expected and were expressions dictated from Tehran. Just to complete the quotes, Nasrallah further stated, “The balance has changed due to the Iranian revolution’s victory, which was begun by the blessed imam Khomeini and is continued by the blessed imam Khamenei. Today we have much better intelligence regarding what the Zionist entity is doing than we had in the past, from official sources as well as from unofficial sources.” This overt threat is actually a restating of the Hezballah threats and claims that they could take back the Galilee from her occupation whenever they decided the time had come. This threat needs also to be taken along with the recent Hezballah claims that stated, “Once we said that we could strike targets south of Haifa. Today, we can say that if Israel has sites south of Eilat, then we can also hit them. All of Israel is under the range of our missiles.” All of this bluster just because of the threat by European powers to leave a treaty which few if any of the participants ever intended keeping. Iran, under the JCPOA presumably was inspecting their own military installations and were to report any breaching of the agreement. Really? Who expected that to work at all?

 

Iran has treated the JCPOA as the fig leaf behind which their nuclear program never even felt a hiccup as was proven when Israel lifted tons of evidence from their secure Tehran bunker in one evening and transported it all to Israel (see image below). These were the final information required by President Trump to pull he United States from the JCPOA and reapply sanctions on Iran in an effort to have them come to the table and negotiate a new deal. Iran does not desire a new deal; they prefer the one they have and will wait for a new President of the United States to be elected and be reasonable with their needs. Should the three European powers also leave the agreement, it never was an actual treaty, then Iran could be facing the reapplication of the sanctions by Europe which would actually cause Tehran some serious headaches. The serious nature with which Iran has reacted with their having ordered a Hezballah threat on Israel is all the proof needed to assess the nature and threat on the JCPOA.

Whether or not Israel should take the Nasrallah threat to heart and possibly take steps to respond will be determined by any information Israel has been able to garner. Over the last half a decade, Nasrallah was largely ignored as Hezballah was up to their ears in the Iranian backed wars in Syria and Yemen. There have been reports that many of the Hezballah operatives have since returned to Lebanon from their efforts supporting Iran. These operatives sent to Yemen and across the border to Syria were presumed to be training more than actually fighting yet, from intercepted casualty reports, the Hezballah members were performing much more than training than was admitted. These threats from Nasrallah should be taken seriously but tempered with intelligence of Hezballah movements of assets and terrorists placing them such that crossing the border appears likely. Israeli intelligence and aerial surveillance should take particular attention to any readying of Hezballah missiles and rockets. Such intelligence should be critically analyzed with specific attention to their Scud rockets and MLRV* units. The former, and its ilk, comprise the ability for Hezballah to strike at Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and the Dimona complex which would be primary targets in the initial round should they be seriously planning an assault upon the north. The MLRV with their rapid multiple rocket barrage capabilities is primarily used in supporting advancing forces by forcing the enemy to take cover and remain buttoned-up thus limiting their vision and ability to detect any attack or infiltration.

 

When it comes to terrorists, we are looking more at infiltration which could come from almost any front or direction. The most obvious would be across the fenced Lebanon border with Israel or, using the Syrian confrontation, entry could be attempted along the Golan Heights. Another option would be to enter through Gaza where allies such as Hamas and Islamic Jihad might assist or their people might carry out attacks for Hezballah to force a two-front confrontation upon Israel. The final entry points would be along the Israeli eastern lands bordering Jordan or the PLO/PA region west of the Jordan River. Israel will probably place their forces already in these positions to heighten awareness and be particularly sensitive to potential terror infiltrations. Israel might also redouble efforts at detecting and destroying tunnels under her borders to facilitate just such operations. The world need realize that this Hezballah threat is actually a threat coming directly from Tehran and should put most of Europe on notice that they have problems within their own countries which lie openly vulnerable to Iranian terror forces of the IRGC or Hezballah. This was not a threat made upon Israel for her presumed occupation of the Galilee but a warning to the world that moves made against Iran could be answered by terrorist forces in Lebanon as well as Iraq, Yemen and other supportive places. Europe should also take the precaution of seeking out any Iranian operatives who probably entered Europe as part of the waves of Middle Eastern and North African “refugees” they foolishly permitted entry. Many of the entering refugees were actually terror operatives and as Iran has the largest amount of control over these terrorists, even more than the Muslim Brotherhood, they could be activated and given targets within Europe to strike. Such strikes by terror operatives would target high profile locations very likely also tourist hot spots with intent to harm as many as possible. Israel is prepared largely while Europe is largely vulnerable. Israel will tread carefully until it is time to act, Europe would be best served to move with bluster intended to maximize the appearance of readiness. One last tip, the terrorists in Europe are most likely controlled through the IRGC or by Hezballah which means that your Lebanese immigrants just might be Hezballah plants. Be well advised Europe, after Israel you are the most inviting of targets along with the United States with a difference, Europe is far closer to their bases in Lebanon, Iraq and Iran.

Kurdistan Independence Referendum

 

Day before yesterday, the Kurdish People in Iraq voted in a referendum on whether they desire to declare their independence from Iraq or remain part of a nation which craves their oil but wishes them the worst. The vote was decisively for independence with over ninety percent of the Kurds voting claiming their desire for their own state at long last. As seventy-two percent of eligible Kurds voted, that brings the result to close to two-thirds of all Kurds eligible voting for independence. That is an overwhelming result in anyone’s book but should they act on this they will face Iraqi troops invading and a boycott or worse from Turkey along with a closed border militarily enforced. Iran may also invade in order to quash the movement. The Iraqi Prime Minister, Haider al-Abadi, has ordered the Kurds to hand over control of airports and borders by Friday; the Iraqi parliament passed a thirteen-point resolution Wednesday aimed to chip at Kurdistan autonomy and posing new challenges with some expected threats. Fortunately for the Kurds, their Kurdish Peshmerga Militias who performed so admirably against the ISIS threat will also be the ones defending their freedom should invasions result. The similarities to what Israel faced on May 15, 1948 when declaring Jewish independence and what the Kurds are likely to face is unavoidable, especially when the friendship between the two peoples is taken into account.

 

Despite the fact that the Kurdish are mostly Sunni Muslims as was Saddam Hussein, when he was the dictatorial President of Iraq he regularly used the Kurdish population in military experiments as the subject or target of new weapons or simply for practice. The attack has been chronicled well by Aljazeera English quoted below.

“On the morning of March 16, 1988, Iraqi war planes and artillery pounded the Kurdish town of Halabja in northern Iraq with mustard gas and the deadly nerve agent sarin.
Some 5,000 people – mainly women and children – died on the day, and up to 12,000 have lost their lives since. The method was the same as the Ghouta gas attack in Damascus, on August 21, 2013, just over 25 years later.
In both instances a conventional pre-bombardment – to break windows and doors and to get people underground – was followed by the deadly chemical weapons, sarin and mustard agent.
Heavier than air – and with no windows and doors to stop the “gas” – it found its victims helpless and unprotected in underground cellars and air-raid shelters. These crimes against humanity were then followed up with a conventional bombardment to destroy the evidence.”

The Kurdish Village of Halabja, unfortunately, was far from the only Kurdish village attacked by Saddam Hussein though it was the most well documented and was used heavily in his war crimes trial. Saddam had also regularly had Kurdish farmers strafed while they worked their fields watching from his command craft enjoying the spectacle. And after Saddam was deposed and the United States prematurely abandoned the Kurdish to the new bosses, the Shia in the south were out for a little payback after Saddam Hussein. The best that can be said for the Shia government of Iraq, which is largely controlled by Iranian officers, is that they largely ignore the Kurdish areas other than Mosul from which there comes oil and a command over much of the central and all the northern highways thus controlling the infrastructure of roadways plus the large Mosul Dam and hydroelectric generating plants which produces a significant amount of the total electrical output in Iraq. The dam is also in need of repair without which it is in danger of failure which would cause major flooding and damage in Baghdad as well as Mosul and across the nation all the way to where it feeds the Arabian Gulf.

Since the United States withdrew under orders from President Obama, Mosul was taken over by the Islamic State. They were threatening to destroy the Mosul Dam just because. Did Iran with their military come and free the city or did their puppets in Iraq come with their military or the Sunni militias to free Mosul? They did get credit for doing so in the New York Times who gave the Kurdish Peshmerga Militias bare mention when truth be told, had the Kurdish Peshmerga Militias not cleared the entrance to Mosul and performed much of the heavy lifting, Mosul would have taken far longer to have been retaken, if it had been at all. The Kurdish forces also did a large part of the clearing of the northern half of Mosul of Islamic State fighters who remained hidden trying to merge with the population to attack at a later time when fortunes might be changed. Now the Iraqi government is claiming Mosul largely because Iran desperately desires to control this pivotal and central city. Mosul is at the core of the Kurdish hopes as they believe that Mosul belongs to them as many of the Kurds who were forcably removed under Saddam Hussein have now returned following the defeat of the Islamic State with a large and formidable Kurdish effort. The world owes the Kurds across the region much thanks as it was the Kurdish forces who put an end to the spread of Islamic State when it was known as ISIS and was swallowing up large swaths of central Iraq and Syria defeating every force they encountered until they were pushed to a halt and then backed right out of Kobani, Syria and that proved to be the turning point as after that the Kurdish YPG forces in Syria backed by Peshmerga started the push-back against the Islamic State which also contributed to the retaking of Mosul. Had Kurdish forces not proven that the Islamic State could be beaten, their reputation might have continued winning many battles for them by the Syrian or Iraqi military troops fleeing before their rumored advance. The Kurds are the reason the world is now talking about taking Raqa, the presumed Islamic State capital city.

What is so very disturbing is that much of the world is not prepared to give the Kurdish their due by backing them should they declare independence. The United States State Department requested the Kurdish officials postpone the vote as it was an inconvenient timing for the State Department and they informed the Kurds that they would get back to them on a better time to schedule their referendum. One can be assured that the State Department would promptly forget that the Kurdish People desired independence and would eventually sell them out to the highest bidder just as the British did after World War I when they reneged on their promise to back the formation of a Kurdish homeland. They succeeded in forcing the Kurds to accept Arab rule in much the same manner as they attempted to do with the Jews as the British also opposed a Jewish State and wanted the Zionists to accept Arab rule or shared rule with the Arabs having the majority vote. Israeli officials defeated the British finally in 1948 and ignored the United States State Department which requested that the Zionists wait until it would be a more convenient time for the State Department to be able to support a Jewish State, better known as never. The Kurds deserve their own state and the recognition of the world as well as their thanks for being the ones who stepped up and started the initial defeat of the Islamic State. The United Nations, United States, NATO, Russia, Iran, Iraq and almost anyone else you care to mention are against Kurdish independence. The Kurds have received support from some of the Sunni Arab villages along their proposed border preferring the Kurds to the Iranian and Iraqi Shiites. There has also been support from Saudi Arabia which is reasonable, as they will prefer anybody over the Iranians who are their enemies. Iraq, Turkey, Iran, Syria and seemingly the world is against Kurdish independence with one obvious exception, Israel. That is the single supporting state which has quietly provided the Kurds with intelligence, equipment, logistics, weapons and training all in a very clandestine manner.

 

The final item we believe and feel we absolutely need to express, should the Kurds in Iraq declare their independence, we hope that more nations and organizations than just Israel and Saudi Arabia recognize their declaration. Hopefully the fact that Israel and Saudi Arabia recognize the newly formed Kurdistan, assuming the declaration is approved, will prevent any military attempts at intervention by the government in Baghdad, Tehran, Damascus or Ankara. Further, it would be very helpful if the United Nations would at least hold a General Assembly vote supporting the Kurdish independence as soon as possible as it becomes appropriate and have that followed by a Security Council recognition granting them recognition as a state by the United Nations. Finally, the map we posted above would be something for the far future as the current declaration is regarding only the Iraqi Kurds. The border would remain within the current borders of northern Iraq and hopefully move south to include Mosul. The rest of the Kurdish regions would need to be addressed separately and if they were to desire to also vote for independence and desire to merge with the Iraqi Kurds, the first item they would need renounce is their socialist political principles as the Iraqi Kurds have stated their desire for democratic elections and a capitalist free economy. One of the rules of joining an established system is that you must accept that system, not demand it alter to meet your expectations. One thing which is clear, if the Kurds desire to ever gain the recognition from President Trump, the first thing they must not become is a socialist run nation. President Trump kind of made his feelings known concerning anything tinged by socialism during his United Nations speech. Thankfully, the Kurds of Iraq desire a free state and economy unrestricted by the chocking restraints of socialism. All that remains is the final count of their referendum. Obviously, we are hoping they choose to be free and run their own lives and nation, as we now have seen. We can only hope and wish them the best and pray that other free nations will assist the Kurds in their bid for freedom, though as was proven by Israel, friends will be as scarce as hens’ teeth.

How to Measure the Arab War on Israel and Beyond

 

The easiest summation of intent is vocalized every Friday in the waning hours of the afternoon in Tehran and Qom, Esfahan and Bam, Shiraz and Tabriz, Mashhad and Yazd, Zahedan and Ali-Sadr when after their deep devotion sworn to Allah said in their Mosques they gather together after their prayers and as a community chant “Death to Israel” over and over and over and along with their Death to Israel, no demonstration would be complete without the accompanying “Death to America” chanted right alongside; but that is just something they chant and has no actual intent in their words, none at all as the media has quoted their leaders promising the leaders of the United States they mean them no actual harm, it is just an exercise. Unfortunately there have been no such reassurances given to Prime Minister Netanyahu or any MK in the Knesset, not even MK Tibi or MK Zoabi who one would think they might be somewhat more attuned to as they are both Arabs and anti-Zionists, but no assurances at this end. But Iran is not a problem because President Obama has addressed the possible nuclear weapons program with an inspired deal which will bring results far beyond anything his skeptics claim are the shortcomings. That will be then and I am more concerned with the now, so let the Iran deal sort itself out and allow the United States and the American electorate elect people in the upcoming 2016 election who might actually know about foreign policy and have a cogent and coherent plan and a Congress which will back that vision; until then let us address that now which I am more concerned about.

 

For those who are my regular readers please bear with me a moment as I review some of the things we’ve discussed this past few weeks and months. There has been a slow and steady ramping of the levels and severity of terror attacks by Arabs that the media refers to as Palestinians in the Judea, Samaria, Benyamin, East Jerusalem, Old City and let us not forget the only violence the media has cared or even bothered to report on, the Temple Mount, though their coverage has been slanted in one of the most ingenious and perverse manner possible making the victims the cause and the violent agitators the unfortunate victims with no choice beyond the route they have taken, something we will try and clarify to some extent but there are more dangerous and vitally important messages which need to be communicated as the mainstream media refuses to report the entire news. The latest development this past week was the declaration made at the United Nations by Mahmoud Abbas the day before the “Palestinian Flag” was added to the national flags raised in the front of the United Nations, the world’s highest legal body, declared that the Palestinian Authority was no longer obliged to follow or be restricted or concerned with the Oslo Accords. He then challenged the world to gift him the independent state he was all but declaring with the boundaries he will never spell out so publically but would lead to a defenseless Israel or a completely replaced Israel with the world signing off. The truth of his denial of being covered or under the obligations of the Oslo Accords may have a number of ramifications that I am hopeful there are those in the world willing to enforce the real situation of Abbas walking away from any obligations and giving up any coverage by abrogating Oslo Accords. As far as the United Nations taking any action, forget about it. The Security Council has more than sufficient veto wielding members which will desire to protect their long history of investing in Yasser Arafat and after him Mahmoud Abbas to permit anything to interfere with their influence and “friend” in the Middle East just to protect Israel, the one and only Jewish State. And as far as the General Assembly is concerned, which has in the past five years censured or condemned Israel with its own votes or the votes of its many tendrils, with the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) is beyond all others in these efforts; they have not even considered anything against Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Saudi Arabia, North Korea, China and Russia combined. Well, so much for the objectivity of the United Nations and its tendrils.

 

This makes the declaration of the Palestinian Authority into existence no longer valid and the entity of the Fatah Party as nothing more than a fascinating concept used by the Oslo Accords to give the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) a political cloak of respectability and incorporated this entity as the ruling political entity in the forming of the Palestinian Authority. Finally, without the Oslo Accords there is no Palestinian Authority, no Fatah, and the PLO is now also no longer a protected and scrubbed entity and has returned to being nothing beyond what it always was, a terrorist organization, nothing less. Since this declaration of the intent to return to their terrorist past and no longer hiding behind the Oslo Accord cloak of approval there was the murder in cold blood with automatic weapons and handguns peppering the bodies of Eitam Naama Henkin with their four youngest children in the backseat witnessing the entire blood sacrifice by two Arab Palestinians who then fled into a neighboring Arab community with authorities tracking down those responsible. A witness spoke of the father riddled with bullets managing to get out of the car and open the rear door and telling his children to run before collapsing. The children aged four, seven and nine years were taken into another Israelis car and informed them of their youngest four months was still in the vehicle and they retrieved the final child.

 

Over this weekend there were a number of rock throwing, Molotov cocktails, fireworks fired, shootings, stabbings and other assaults too numerous to count with at least four deaths in the past week and this is just the opening few days of the final intifada which was actually declared and instigated some time back, when exactly cannot be set as it is a ramping of violence until Israel will respond and then there will be the cries of disproportional force by Israel. Well, what exactly was the situation with two young parents with a car full of young children when facing murderers with assault rifles and handguns, the stabbing victims who were unarmed and all the other victims for the past years when facing terrorists unarmed, or facing unruly mobs screaming and even striking, kicking, cursing, spiting and other insults and if they react at all the security on the Temple Mount arrests the Jews as the Jordanian Waqf has jurisdiction over the Temple Mount and they have declared that no Arab can ever commit a crime on the Temple Mount and every Jews setting foot on the Temple Mount is to be considered a criminal just because of their presence. The days after the Eitam Naama Henkin were murdered there was great commotions with dancing, candies handed out, singing and shooting rounds into the air in numerous Arab neighborhoods in East Jerusalem and the Palestinian areas celebrating their brave warriors and their glorious victory in their hard won fight against two unarmed Israelis as even unarmed an Israeli must be that much of a threat that they need to be shot multiple times simply driving home after visiting friends.

 

It is obvious even to the most casual of observers that Mahmoud Abbas used his address at the General Assembly to openly declare open warfare against Israel. The ensuing week has produced sufficient carnage and escalated violence to prove that a declaration of war was exactly what Abbas intended and is the reality Israel is facing, open warfare. Mahmoud Abbas might believe that now is the best time to attempt to ramp up confrontations with Israel as Europe will probably not be all that attentive as they are facing their own Arab refugee problem with thousands upon thousands of refugees flocking across the face of Europe and attempting to find their golden spot to settle in and enjoy all the benefits that European Socialism has to offer. The one thing which will be in the Arabs favor is that, by all appearances, Prime Minister Netanyahu appears to be overly sensitive when it comes to potentially ending up on the wrong side of President Obama and Israel defending themselves from Arab violence seems to aggravate President Obama. Perhaps Prime Minister Netanyahu should write a song of woe using the words “Rifle shots to the east of us, Rockets to the West and we’re stuck in the middle without you.” I doubt even with a song and a dance Prime Minister Netanyahu could get President Obama to sign on to any act that Israel might choose to utilize to address the heightened violence from the PLO in the east and the increasing rockets being launched from Gaza in the West.

 

On the other hand, this might be the perfect time for Abbas to declare war on Israel before problems get too heated in Europe as the invasion begins to explode in their faces and they start experiencing the problems which are sure to arise when the refugees realize that Europe will not be providing the panacea of privileges and support long term for them and start expecting the refugees to normalize themselves into the society. This will run afoul once the instigators who have been injected into the ranks intermingled with the refugees and what their numbers are is a complete mystery. Islamic State has announced that they intended to inject some of their own ranks to infiltrate Europe and who knows how many IRGC, Hezballah or other terror entities as this is probably the greatest opportunity as much of Europe has opened their borders or have been less than effective in keeping the refugees out of their borders, well, with a few choice exceptions who are being scolded by those nations with the open borders. It is almost like they are demanding to share the threats and misery which will result from this influx of refugees, especially when it becomes proven beyond any doubt that many of the refugees are not from Syria.

 

The last theory is that the Arab Palestinians are actually timing their ramping from all across Judea, Samaria, Benyamin and Jerusalem from the east with the PLO terrorists while Hamas and Islamic Jihad are escalating their rocket attacks from the west potentially in concert with directives from Iran so as to present Israel with sufficient problems while the infiltrators injected in with the refugees in order to conduct terrorist activities or even to lay wait for further instructions possibly to instigate down the road should the refugees not adjust or European hospitality not quite live up to expectations, something already occurring at some borders such as Hungary and a few other mostly eastern European nations which were originally behind the Iron Curtain. Should terrorism continue to rise in Israel including the threats be carried out for more intentional firings across the Golan Heights into the norther Galilee once again turning the heights into a shooting gallery and potentially requiring the deployment of Iron Dome units in the north. This is being threatened by the IRGC and Hezballah as a means of internationalizing the Syrian debacle and also as an attempt to force other Arab or Muslim nations to support Bashir al-Assad as he will claim that of all the forces fighting in Syria only he and his allies are attempting to fight the real enemy, Israel. With the recent news that numbers of the older T-55 and T-72 tanks, at the least seventy-five, to Hezballah presumably to fight against the Islamic State but the real target we all know is for use against Israeli armor and infantry. Add to that the latest threats from Islamic Jihad to resume suicide murders using human bombs.

Whatever happens across the world, which by all appearances has entered some alternate reality where common sense and any proportionality of problems has been skewed, it is targeting Israel, which is no surprise, but also targeting Europe and potentially the United States. As there is an abundance of refugees which will surpass the potential for Europe to have sufficient treasuries, infrastructure, housing, employment or other means of preventing the entirety of the refugees to simply settle down and live off the social safety net, a system which has served as the last ditch funding for those Europeans who have hit the hardest of times, and was not designed to accommodate tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands or even millions (that’s thousands of thousands) influx of destitute refugees. The stretching of European goodwill beyond the breaking point is likely to place Europe into an economic death spiral and sending the excess thousands or even millions to the United States will only exacerbate the problem by targeting another nation with the same social overload crisis. That leaves the question as to what will the Europeans do should the refugees become ungrateful and demand more or threaten violence which can only be pushed back for a brief period because acquiescing will only be seen as a weakness which will entice the rabble-rousers to demand more and more until they cross a line which should have never been approached and the Europeans decide it is time for the refugees to head eastward and find some accommodating Islamic nation to house them or face the wrath of a Europe stung once again leading to a greater conflagration. Once Europe explodes nobody will care what Israel must do and that is why Abbas may have had bad timing but had no choice as well. The immediate future will be reported as the caring and great Christian heart, or socialist dream being realized by all, and in a period of time the reporting will become more edgy eventually leading to reporting violence and a growing inflammation spreading across Europe aimed at the refugees demanding they return to their native lands or else, and never question a European about or else as they invented the Inquisition and specialize in World Wars. Irritating Europe has always ended poorly for all involved and with the current state of weaponry the world may not survive another world at war, honest.
