Where Are the Environmentalists?

 

The environmental movement members are the first people to scream about any and almost every threat to the environment. Oh, right, I forgot, the Arab Palestinians get a free pass on everything and only those accusations which can be leveled on Israel get any attention. They gather a large pile of wood chips, set them alight, and then cover them to prevent them burning completely. Eventually this causes a block forcing the wood chips within the pile to soak in energy as they are placed under heat and the gathered smoke and carbon dioxide from the above layers and they smolder becoming charcoal briquettes. This works but produces great plumes of smoke throwing large amounts of contaminants into the air causing pollution to such an extent that many people in the area need to wear masks to filter the air they breathe. Below we have a four-picture montage showing the procedure. This production is carried out seven days a week almost nonstop all year round. The effects of the area are immeasurable. For some reason there have been absolutely no environmentalists protesting this primitive and heavily polluting method of producing charcoal. Modern methods place the wood chips inside an airtight container, fill it with carbon-dioxide gas, and then apply heat, making briquettes with minimal pollution. With all the financial assistance the Palestinian Authority has received, hundreds of millions reaching into billions of Euros, one would think that they could have updated their equipment and permitted them to continue without posing a threat to not only the air, but when they wash the area down and allow the water to seep into the groundwater, they threaten the water supply for the entire area. And then the Palestinian Authority has the audacity to complain that Israel has not secured the groundwater and prevented it being polluted.

But now Hamas has decided to use pollution as a cover for breaching their border in order to infiltrate terrorist cells into Israel. Below are a set of pictures which depict the steps used by Hamas this past Friday, April 6, 2018, to set-up their smokescreen under which they rushed the border fence in multiple places. The number of tires they set on fire was quite large, well into the thousands, and they burned for hours causing a great plume of thick black smoke. Had Israel committed the same environmental criminal act with the purpose of having the smoke disperse the rioters across the border, you can bet that there would have been environmental activists screaming and calling for prosecution of the Israelis responsible for this great crime against Gaia, their Earth goddess. But this crime against Gaia was committed by Hamas and that makes everything just copacetic. What the leftist extremists have decided is that any act, no matter how criminal or extreme, is permissible as long as it is used to work towards the destruction of Israel. Hamas has sworn to destroy Israel no matter how long it takes them. What is strange is that the world acts as if Israel has any rule or claim to Gaza, the area which Hamas and Islamic Jihad rules. Israel handed all of Gaza to the Palestinian Authority releasing any claims Israel had turning it completely over to the Arabs. The Palestinian Authority lost Gaza in a coup with Hamas taking control, Hamas and not Israel. Israel does not occupy Gaza releasing all claims to the territory in August of 2005 pulling the last IDF personnel out by early September of that year. What we are witnessing is a series of protests by Gazans against a foreign nation hoping the world will hold that nation responsible for their nation being mismanaged by its corrupt rulers. The air pollution was the idea of their terror masters and they used it to have civilians rush the fence with terrorists hiding amongst the people in hopes of infiltrating Israel. That is an attempt to place agents within a foreign nation with hopes of committing terror acts in the future. That is an act of war.

The reality of such operations will soon be part and parcel of events which will be confronting President Trump and the people of the United States. Leftists within the United States are very probably going to protest and make great amount of ruckus when the illegal immigrant caravan reaches the American-Mexican border sometime in the next month. This group will not likely be burning tires and throwing Molotov cocktails or shooting at American Border Guards. They will be, however, invading the United States by crossing the border, very likely en-masse, attempting to gain illegal entrance and take up residence. Their end destination will likely be one of the many sanctuary cities where they will be protected from ICE agents. The coming confrontation, which will most likely occur on the California border, will prove interesting, as it will be a direct challenge to President Trump’s immigration policies. Should President Trump manage to place the military on the border, as he has stated is his intention, and this group is apprehended and returned to their countries of origin, then it is likely the next immigrant convoy will use more violent methods eventually reaching the level which Israel is facing with Hamas when the next combination is planned. The group behind the immigrant caravan is Pueblo Sin Fronteras. Pueblo Sin Fronteras proposes to remake the world with no borders by which they mean that anybody from the third world should be permitted to move to the industrialized world and live off the wealth of that world. Their world would have no borders and probably be ruled by a benevolent dictator who automatically understands the desires and needs of the people. Actually, we are willing to bet they have not figured out exactly how their world will function once they have succeeded in erasing the borders of all the nations. They probably would propose that they be permitted to continue to repair this broken world where there are rich nations and poor nations and that if only the rich nations would give their wealth to the poor nations, then everybody would be equal. The problem is that they are probably correct in that everybody would be equal, they would be equally destitute and starving as once they have destroyed the successful nations and given all their wealth to the poor nations where the dictators would take the cash and run, then nobody would have any wealth and the engines which created that wealth would be destroyed. But that is not their problem; they just want to make the world equal and matching their vision of complete and total borderless perfection. We wish President Trump luck, not just with this attempted invasion, but also with all the ensuing ones which the leftists will make sure continues as quickly as they can be arranged.

 

There have been some deaths and possibly hundreds of injuries with some actually requiring serious treatment. This is the only news which is guaranteed to be broadcast with great rapidity making appear as if Israel was shooting hundreds of Gazans per hour when the IDF has only shot at those either shooting at Israeli forces, those destroying border monitoring equipment along the border fence and those actually attempting to breach the border through destroying sections of the border fence or scaling the border fence. Hamas had been hoping that the first day or this past Friday that they might have enabled a mass rush on the fence intending to cause a large breach through which to have hundreds of Gazans to rush through with armed terrorists hidden within the mass of people. Hamas may still manage to force just such an event which will leave Israel with a serious decision to make. There will not be time for deliberating, debating the finer points, measuring consequences against potential harms of not acting and the multitudinous ramifications facing the IDF and the people of Israel. Common sense, something which has been lacking from the discussions of the entire situation, tells any serious person that no nation can permit a belligerent neighbor to flood across their border and even less so to have armed insurrectionists hidden within the flood of bodies who have plans for harming as many citizens of their nation once the infiltrations have been accomplished. Additionally, the riotous crowd has been whipped into a blood rage and will literally tear apart any Israelis they come upon if not prevented. This was made very apparent when two Israelis made a wrong turn and ended up in Nablus several years ago. Palestinian police placed them in a jail cell for safety and then fled the station when the mob approached. They flooded the station, took the keys, opened the cell and literally tore the two men’s bodies apart and called one man’s wife so she could hear his death screams. The crowd outside roared with approval as one of the people inside the jail leaned out a second floor window showing them his two blood-soaked hands (graphic picture). Imagine hundreds of crazed people looking for victims coming across a small farming kibbutz, which are near the Gaza border, where there may be four or five families residing.

 

The commanders of the IDF had better have already met with Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman and Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Tzipi Hotovely and whomever else might have anything to contribute to the conversation and have met with them weeks ago when they first had an inkling of what was coming. The decision as to what the IDF soldiers are to do should a wave of humanity rush the border breaching the border fence pouring into Israel and start destroying everything they reach and swarming the troops themselves cannot be decided at the moment. This must not be a decision left to the commanders in the field, as any decision for such a threat must have been reached through deliberation by people who, as they say, get paid the ‘Big Bucks’ to make such decisions. Further, the troops who are manning the border during these riots, facing the several and various threats, should have had as much training for the many threats defining what is expected from them in as many of the different scenarios with which they could have to deal. Still, the coverage to date of the border offensive being mounted by Hamas, and that is what this is, an act of aggression by Hamas with the intent of breaching the border with Israel setting a murderous mob of thousands of people set on causing maximum damage and death to Israel and any Israelis they can find, has been next to atrocious as the only item they care to mention is the number of dead and injured as reported by Hamas. There has been little if any mention of the rioters throwing Molotov Cocktails, using slings to fire stones at lethal speeds, the rushing of the fence by mobs which required rubber bullets to disperse or the numbers of terrorists who have worked their way to the fence to destroy Israeli security devices and to shoot at the IDF positions. They have avoided mentioning that almost all those killed were known terrorists even when Hamas admitted that ten of those killed the initial day were from their military wing. There has been no mention of the little flag waving where they planted the Arab Palestinian flag (actually a modified Jordanian flag) along with a Nazi twisted cross, the swastika, in a field which apparently was invisible to much of the media outside the Israeli media (see image below). The media has decided that they are going to play the ‘peaceful protester’ angle to their maximum ability. The big news over the past week reported has been that approximately twenty Arabs have been killed by the IDF who were conducting peaceful protests. These protests are anything but peaceful and rioting assaults on the Israel border fence would be a better description. But what has the media ignored while focused so intently on the Israel Gaza border?

There has been a small amount of intense violence somewhere else in the Middle East. At a minimum, one-hundred-fifty people, mostly women and children, have been murdered in an attack on their city of Douma, just a little east of Damascus. This city of civilians and little else was bombed and struck with artillery. It is heavily suspected from the types and conditions found amongst the casualties that multiple kinds of chemical weapons including chlorine gas amongst other agents with suspicions that amongst the mix was Sarin nerve agent. This was indicative in the bodies found in a number of basements where the people had foam around their mouths and their bodies were in unnatural positions. There have been other reports by sources that airplanes dropped barrels of chemical materials on the city and its residents. More than a thousand civilians have shown affects by inhalation of chemical substances and are suffering from severe suffocation. The United States State Department responded that they were investigating whether or not Bashir al-Assad had again used chemical weapons and if affirmed, they would hold Russia to be accountable and should expect a response from the international community. That will be the day, but perhaps they would get a dressing down by United States Ambassador Nikki Haley. But even this atrocity was not sufficient to replace the two dead on the Gaza border as the lead story in the nightly news. Often it makes one wonder how much could happen around the world which would be ignored simply to concentrate on the potential for Israel to defend their border from an attack. Possibly Turkey, under orders from President Erdoğan, is sweeping across northern areas of Syria in a genocidal cleansing of the Kurdish region going city by city. All the violence in Syria and the unreported violence against the northern regions of Iraq where Iraqi military, with IRGC troops assisting, have been pushing the Kurdish forces from the regions they took from the Islamic State. But quick, we need to go see if Israel has done anything contemptable the media can report with breathless exasperation.

These riots which will be continuing through the middle of May, peaking every Friday afternoons after services and the Imams call for violence. The Hamas intention is to have the levels of violence ramp up higher each week hoping that it will result in a mass crossing of the Israeli border forcing open warfare which they believe will prevent the moving of the American embassy to Jerusalem. Some security experts have pegged the date which Hamas has chosen for this invasion of Israel to be May 14, 2018, which is the proposed day the United States is to announce their embassy move. Their hope is such a threat of violence will have the United States postpone the official announcement of their embassy move. One can only hope that President Trump is made of stern enough stuff to foil such a move by making the announcement despite the Hamas threats. As we stated in our earlier article, we believe that Hamas will utilize the advantage of larger numbers which appear, as scheduled, every Friday to attempt their mass infiltration and initiate their war against Israel on that previous Friday, May 11, 2018. If such should come to pass, the world will soon be in full throat screaming how dare Israel take upon itself the right to defend their border. What is lost is that Israel abandoned all claims to the entirety of Gaza. Every Israeli citizen was relocated within Israel, every military structure was destroyed, the green houses were left completely intact and functional, and every Israeli military and government official was pulled out and the rule over Gaza was given over to the Palestinian Authority. This was declared to actually be the precursor Palestinian Arab State which would prove their intent and ability to have self-rule. This experiment failed unbelievably as within two years the Palestinian Authority had lost the entirety of Gaza to Hamas terrorist group in a coup. This caused Israel to impose the blockade on Hamas ruled Gaza, not on Gaza or its people, though they did suffer minor inconvenience from the blockade as it also limited their fishing areas. The wars were forced upon Israel by Hamas and Islamic Jihad attacks with rockets, tunnels, and other attacks. Hamas currently rules Gaza and could declare themselves to be a nation and Israel would have no way of preventing their claim. Gaza is an area which currently is ruled by terrorists. Israel does not occupy Gaza nor does Israel have any influence beyond checking imports to prevent for military dual use and actual weapons, particularly heavy weapons, from being imported. The United Nations has ruled on the Israeli restricting of imports to Gaza and imposing a naval blockade on Gaza and found it to meet the requirements making it legal. The truth is that Gaza is a terrorist operation base which has used the majority of aid and funds from any and every source to attempt and destroy Israel denying Gazans any normalcy. There is a humanitarian crisis in Gaza caused by Hamas and Islamic Jihad. The cement, steel rebar and concrete imported to rebuild apartments for Gazans has been instead diverted to build bunkers and tunnels including infiltration tunnels into Israel which, when detected, are destroyed by Israel as they are a security threat to the Israeli people. Each destroyed tunnel you have read or heard about in the news could have built three schools or clinics or could have rebuilt an apartment building. Despite the obvious diverting of these provisions, the European Union insists on Israel permitting additional provisions to rebuild the apartments knowing it will mostly be utilized to rebuild the infiltration tunnels and not to the advantage of the Gazan people. Gaza is a foreign entity which threatens the existence of the nation of Israel. If the rioting Gazans attempt to crash the Israeli border and flood into Israel, it would be within the right of nation’s self-defense for Israel to take all and any necessary steps to stem the invasion by these aggressor forces including live fire by military forces. The IDF would be within their legal rights to simply mow down the people as they cross into Israel to protect the Israeli population from this threat. The world will howl, but this is exactly what Hamas, Islamic Jihad and their terror compatriots’ desire. Their entire hope in these riots is to have at least one, if not more, incidents where there are mass casualties which they can approach the world demanding that Israel be forced to allow millions of Arabs “return” to their homes and take up their rightful citizenship as Israelis. Their intent is to destroy the Jewish State by forcing an Arab majority which can vote Israel into being another Arab state. Should they take control of Israel; the world can expect genocide of any remaining Jews. This is what the IDF may be forced to prevent as the Arabs attempt to infiltrate Israel and once inside claiming citizenship as returning refugees from the initial Arab Israeli war in 1948. Most of these infiltrators who might breach the border are under seventy years old which means they were not born in 1948, but why allow such little facts get in the way of destroying the only Jewish State making it into yet another Arab state.

 

Of course, if we were permitted to decide, Hamas would be toppled along with Islamic Jihad and the rest of the oppressive overlords in Gaza and the people there permitted to live in peace wherever they prefer. We would even bet Israel would be glad to offer them the same deal which was to be given the infiltrators, a relocation bonus making any move easier on them allowing them to start a new and free future wherever they choose outside of Israel. Israel might even offer to supervise democratic election to elect Arab governance in Gaza where they could live in a semiautonomous region protected from foreign infiltrations by terrorists or other threats by Israel and to live in peace and security. A similar deal might be made for the Palestinian towns in the Shomron once the world allows the removal of the Palestinian Authority who has frozen elections since 2005. Mahmoud Abbas is serving his thirteenth year of his five-year term he was elected to in 2005. Perhaps somebody might give President Trump a heads up on this idea, they do not even need give us credit, we do not mind. Honest. Meanwhile, Hamas is destroying the environment and the leading hypocritical environmentalists could not care less as it is all in the cause of destroying the Zionist Entity.

Arab Israel Peace Takes Turn for the Worse

 

United States Ambassador to Israel David Friedman and Palestinian Authority President has recently been battling in the media with exchanges of accusations and insult. The exchanges began with Ambassador David Friedman expressing dissatisfaction and sorrow over the fact that nobody from the leadership of the Palestinian Authority had spoken forth to condemn the series of deadly terror attacks that took the lives of three Israelis over the weekend. As a simple review, please allow us to review the events from this past weekend. On Friday March 16, 2018, an Arab terrorist rammed his vehicle into four soldiers and killed two Israeli soldiers in northern Samaria, and injured two more. The terrorist was caught and was injured and hospitalized while also facing interrogation. Our murdered soldiers were Captain Ziv Deus, 21, from the Azor Regional Council, and Sergeant Netanal Kahalani, 20, from the town of Eliakim. A third Israeli was murdered in the Old City part of Jerusalem when he was repeatedly stabbed. The victim was identified as 32-year-old Adiel Kolman, a father of four from the town of Kochav Hashahar. The terrorist fled the scene but was identified as 28-year-old Abed al-Rahman Bani Fa’adal, a resident of the Palestinian Authority-controlled town of Aqraba, near Shechem [Nabulus] and was found to have entered Israel with a valid entry permit.

 

These permits are provided to Palestinian Arabs so they are able to enter Israel and work. In this case the permit was reportedly a temporary entry permit, intended to allow Abed al-Rahman Bani Fa’adal to find work. It is more likely that the entry permit was applied for in order to carry out the attack and the terrorist lied in order to receive the permit. As long as you have no record of terror activity you are issued these permits. Fa’adal reportedly received several entry permits in the past. Abed al-Rahman Bani Fa’adal was faced at the scene of the attack and an officer who shot and killed him. Below is a picture of the knife used to murder Adiel Kolman, the father of four from the town of Kochav Hashahar. The reason behind Ambassador David Friedman’s distress likely stems from that in the past, at the very least Mahmoud Abbas would make some statement condemning acts of terror and express (false) sympathy for the immediate family of those slain. It is realized that Abbas will continue to grant pension style funding to the terrorist in prison or the family of those slain terrorists commensurate with the number of Israelis murdered with other bonuses for special considerations. The lack of even the pretend sympathy is a further sign that all civility between the United States and the Palestinian Authority are gone and the United States will not be considered as equal to the Israelis living beyond the Green Line. These Israelis reside in Area C on lands that are legally intended for Israel to possess. The sliding scale which Yasser Arafat perfected and Mahmoud Abbas has continued has convinced the world that Israel is encroaching on lands which belonged to a nation called Palestine which was a victim in the Six Day War. The problem is there was no nation of Palestine nor has there ever been such a nation. The lands between the Green Line and the Jordan River were occupied Israeli lands by right of the San Remo Convention and numerous treaties since including Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. The occupying power was Jordan who when signing their peace treaty with Israel forfeited any claims to these lands which means there is no actual legal controversy, these lands all belong to Israel unless she recognizes another owner to whom she gifts lands such as was the case with Gaza which was turned over to the Palestinian Authority who subsequently lost it in a coup to Hamas. The rest is, as they say, history.

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas responded on Monday to Ambassador David Friedman’s comments on the lack of condemnation of the weekend terror attacks. In very informal and unacceptable language, Mahmoud Abbas referred to Ambassador Friedman as a “son of a dog, settler.” This is referencing of Jews as the offspring of apes, or sometimes simply monkeys, and pigs. In Islam additionally dogs are considered an unclean animal which they are advised to avoid contact with. Thus calling Friedman the offspring of a dog, he avoided using the usual denotation for somebody who is Jewish using Dog instead of Ape or Pig. Abbas was still insulting the American Ambassador and went further to call him a settler and his family to be settlers in his Ramallah speech where Abbas said, “The United States legitimizes settlements. That’s what American officials do, and at their head, in Tel Aviv, is David Friedman. He said, ‘They’re building on their own land.’ The son of a dog, they’re building on their own land? He himself is a settler, and his entire family are settlers.” This name calling and using an unclean animal could easily make them a legitimate target for a terror attack in the minds of Palestinians. Some terrorist may go so far as to decide that he will strike this “dog settler” and rid Abbas of this thing which is obviously unclean and residing on stolen lands. The American Ambassador’s apartment is in West Jerusalem, not in East Jerusalem, which does not matter to Mahmoud Abbas as he considers Tel Aviv residents to be Jews living on occupied Palestinian Lands. Mahmoud Abbas and the majority, if not all, of the Palestinian Authority, the PLO and Fatah Party leadership view all of Israel as rightfully theirs. This is what they mean when they refer to the seventy years of occupation as Mahmoud Abbas consistently states at the United Nations without even a peep of opposition. The video below is from the official Palestinian Authority television broadcast station from March 11, 2016, just over two year ago. In this video near the forty-second mark is where Abbas refers to what he called their occupation for 67 or 68 years which takes us back to 1948 when Israel was established. When Abbas states he wants to go back to before there were lines, he desires a return to Ottoman Rule where the Muslims ruled all of the lands from Turkey. Jerusalem was home to a majority Jewish population and Jews were permitted to reside anywhere in Jerusalem. Abbas has even denoted that he desires to return to May 13, 1948, one day before Israel declared her independent existence and when six Arab armies supported by a number of militias all attacked Israel and when she lost Gaza to Egypt and Judea and Samaria to Jordan. But Abbas simply desires to erase Israel from any lands and existence.

 

 

Needless to say, American Ambassador Friedman did not take the slight from Abbas well. As a matter of fact, he made it the central theme of his opening remarks to the Sixth Global Forum for Combating Antisemitism (see video below). Ambassador Friedman stated to the Global Forum for Combating Anti-Semitism, “Three Jews were killed in cold blood by the Palestinian terrorists, and the reaction from the Palestinian Authority was deafening. No condemnation whatsoever. I pointed that out, without further adjectives, without further commentary. Abu Mazen (Abbas) chose to respond. … His response was to refer to me as the ‘son of a dog.’ Anti-Semitism or political discourse? Not for me to judge. I’ll leave that all up to you.” One can easily assume how the attendees at the Sixth Global Forum for Combating Antisemitism would react to this dangerous game and name-calling.

 

 

Meanwhile, Israeli leaders have let their feelings be aired, with Education Minister Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home) saying, “David, after just one year in office, we can already see that you’re going to go down in Israel’s history as a true friend of the State of Israel.” Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu responded, “Abu Mazen’s remarks about US Ambassador David Friedman say everything. This is the first time in decades that the US government is no longer spoiling the Palestinian leaders, and he’s telling them: enough. Apparently the shock of hearing the truth made them lose their senses.” Our additional words will be quotes from Giulio Meotti where in his article 14 New Israeli Orphans in One Month where he states In just one month in Israel, the same scene took place three times in three different locations: Har Bracha, Havat Gilad and Kochav Hachachar.”


  • 1) Hundreds of people crowded in a cemetery, sometimes an improvised one.
    2) The victims, all young Israelis, civilians, fathers, husbands.
    3) Killed by Palestinian Arab terrorists just because they were Jews.
    4) Families in agony.
    5) Young wives and mothers in mourning, small communities devastated by the violent death shattering the sense of security.
    6) No condemnation by Palestinian “peace partners”.
    7) Faint, inaudible voices from Europe.
    8) Horrendous newspaper titles.
    “Western ears and eyes are full of images of Palestinian Arab youths, often impostors like Ahed Tamimi, the darling of the “popular Intifada”, but never of these 14 Israeli orphans. Double orphans. Their fathers killed twice. First by the terrorists. Then by Western indifference.”

 

Giulio Meotti struck the vital chord in this saga, the reactions in the Western World and the reason they are so jaded. They are shown scenes of people starving or standing before a half destroyed building weeping for their loss. Every one of these stories tells of Palestinian troubles and hardships. You will see a Palestinian mother whose son, a terrorist, was killed while perpetrating a terror attack aboard a Jerusalem bus in October of 2015 and said she hoped her other sons would follow in his footsteps, and, with knife in hand, announced her intention to carry out her own attack against Israelis. The next video is from July 22, 2009, and depicts a mother before and after her son commits an act of terrorism seeking to be killed by Israeli troops. One might ask what gain is there in being killed by IDF troops or police while you are in an act of terror murdering innocents who are usually not armed. The reason is obvious, it brings honor to your family and guarantees them a far better wage for their son dead than he could make while living. Many of the terrorists when captured claim that there are no decent jobs even with the Palestinian Authority government and the stipend granted the family of a martyr is far greater than even a good job would pay in their society. They give their lives so their family can have a better life. If they commit a sufficiently violent crime killing many Israelis leading to their house, their family’s house, being demolished, the Palestinian authority builds them a new house. So it could be two benefits, a new house and a high stipend salary earned each month by their now dead son. She also states her wish to have one-hundred sons to sacrifice to Allah. What religion do you know where you sacrifice your children to your deity? Think about this religion existing in our modern world where sacrificing your children to your deity, to your god. And this idea of sacrificing children to Allah is not new and exists throughout much of Islamic culture and lands. An entire webpage is dedicated to such exuberance from parents of martyrs, for any wishing to see more. We do not even wish to think about this any further; it sickens us.

 

 

The terror war in Israel is unfortunately continuing at a higher than acceptable pace. Hamas is still taking all the cement and bracing lumber to make their tunnels into Israel and Israel continues to destroy them as they are detected. Hamas has invested anywhere from two to five million Euros on each tunnel and Israel destroys a tunnel almost every week and two on a good week. That is a lot of time and effort and steals from the people in Gaza who also need these supplies to rebuild their homes and lives. Below is a picture of one of the discovered tunnels which was subsequently destroyed.

 

Hamas Tunnel Discovered in Israel by the IDF

Hamas could build apartment buildings and it is estimated that the cost and supplies utilized in building one tunnel which Israel finds and destroys could have built three schools or five clinics or almost two hospitals. These estimates do not include the entire network of underground bunkers and interconnecting tunnel structures which are underneath Gaza City, Rafah, and Khan Yunis as well as the refugee camp. Why there is a refugee camp in Gaza is beyond our understanding, as there is little if any difference between the people in the camp and those outside the camp except those inside the camp eat even if they have no job, those outside the camp do not have that privilege. These UNRWA camps have found a means of destroying any possibility for civility between them and those outside their camps throughout the Arab world. Much of this has to do with the refugees selling off items, which UNRWA replaces freely, making a tidy profit off their fellow Arabs. Additionally, the refugees receive a stipend so as to provide them some dignity despite not having steady jobs as these camps often are closed holding the refugees within as in the past when they were permitted free movement a fairly large number fled to start life over and live a normal life. Still, others have adopted the life of living off the largess gifted them by UNRWA and are in their third or fourth generation exploiting the charity of the world. President Trump decided the United States was not going to further invest in this wasteful system and ended United States UNRWA aid monies. We should end on that one good sliver of hope.

What Israel Must Do if Elections Plus War is Forced Upon Her

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 2:56 AM
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

 

There has been much noise lately that this coalition is starting to be torn asunder by opposition promises to the weaker factions of a great future when they defeat Likud and finally topple Bibi Netanyahu for good. There are even rumblings that should elections be called soon that Bibi would be arraigned on the flimsiest of evidence with charges of anything they can find and then the Supreme Court will receive a suit against allowing him to even run. This is their best hope to unseat Netanyahu, call elections while using the media to force some charge, any charge, just to get him disqualified from the next elections. With the skulduggery and political warfare going on currently in some of the darker recesses which exist with parliamentary governments, the fact is that Israel’s greatest enemies are gathering on her borders again. It may just be posturing, it may be simply pretense, it may be symbolism, it may be a series of shows for the public image, it may be an increase in terror which appears as the weather warms or it may be preparation for an all out war called and directed from Tehran. Whichever may be the case; Israel need restate the reality of her plans for any response to a terror war and state it loudly and clearly with no chance for any doubts or misperceptions. These promises need to go out and be understood that these are the standing orders, government or no government.

 

Hamas must have it be understood that their fiefdom will be no more. Should Hamas initiate another rocket and tunnel war with Israel, it needs to be conveyed that they will be put out of business whether they initiate the offenses or if Islamic Jihad does or anyone starts shooting unceasingly out of Gaza at Israelis. This out of business will be exactly what it sounds like it means, they will never attack Israel from Gaza again and if we are able to, and we are, to catch their leaders, they will be tried for crimes against humanity, war crimes and will never see the light of day again when Israel is finished. Israel should inform them that there is one bill which will be passed into law before the government retires and instituted into the basic laws that terrorism makes one eligible in cases of death for the death penalty, and the leadership of the terror organizations would qualify in spades. If these terror masters think for one second that such a trial would be held in the Hague in Europe, they are sorely mistaken as such a trial can be held by the offended nation, in this case, Israel. Should they force war then Gaza will not remain an independent Arab entity and the people of Gaza will be free to move elsewhere, and after the half willing to leave has sold their homes, farms, businesses and anything else they wish to sell and happily relocated elsewhere, the remainder will be advised it would be wise to leave on their own volition and sell off everything as otherwise they may be facing expulsion if there is even a shred of evidence they or a family member was involved in any acts against Israel. After this area has been cleansed and made safe for Israelis, the area will be reclaimed and made capable of having a population with clean water and electricity and everything has been almost sterilized, then it can be the new front for Israel to settle.

 

Then there are the various levels and directions of threat from Hezballah from out of Lebanon, Syria or both. Their missiles and those of Bashir al-Assad could be unleashed at Israel and there would probably be only one volley launched before they would receive an Israeli response. If the absolute worst-case scenario would develop, Israel had better prepare for a two front war with some threats coming from deep into Syria and as close as they can from Russian installations. Israel must go through private channels and inform Russian President Putin that as long as his forces, particularly his Air Force, do not engage with Israeli actions, then Israel will take precautions not to strike near his positions for as long as Russia keeps the garbage at a distance. Should attacks be permitted launching from near or in Russian held areas, then they will be struck despite the Russian presence. We will put the onus on Russia to police their own areas and prevent terror or acts of war to emanate from those places. Meanwhile, if Syria assets are used against Israel, Bashir al-Assad must know that he will be a target of opportunity, and that opportunity will present itself at some point. Meanwhile, Hezballah and Lebanon need understand that any war launched from within Lebanon will constitute an act of war by the nation of Lebanon. This will need to be understood as the Lebanese government and military are controlled by Hezballah. Since Hezballah will be using assets given to the Lebanese military by President Obama after receiving weak guarantors that these weapons would not end up in the hands of terrorists, this would constitute an open state of war between the two nations as Lebanese military equipment has been utilized by the terrorists. After such an engagement, the areas infested with terror tunnels and bunkers will not be returned to Lebanon with the new border with Lebanon will be the Litany River. This will be the Israeli position after the conflict has ended. Israel will also be using her full force and might in any conflict with Lebanon and all infrastructures in the country will be eliminated such that it can no longer be diverted to run the communications and control and command structures of Hezballah. This will be treated as complete warfare with no reservations should Hezballah strike Israel from within Lebanon or using any Lebanese military equipment.

 

Eretz Yisroel from back in the time immediately after Exodus and before the additional conquest by King David and King Solomon with the original division of the lands between the Tribes covering both sides of the Jordan River. The Israelis and Jews in general could attempt to demand that Eretz Yisroel, the Land of Israel be made whole as was First Apportioned by Hashem.
Litani River was Israel’s Northern Border

 

Hezballah, Hamas and the Palestinian Authority, which is better known and still operates under the name of PLO, will be decimated with its ranks dead or scattered in the winds of war. There will be no reestablishment for any of these entities and any others who are involved when the war ceases. This war will cease when Israel has attained and completed all of her parameters for victory. Their inability to ever be reformed will be at the top of that list. Their leadership decapitated and struck down will be amongst the highest parameters. Hamas should be informed that using the basement of a hospital makes that institution a legitimate military target. The physicians, patients, administrators and others interested should be known to understand what consequences come from having Hamas in their basement. All field commanders of Hamas need understand that they will be targets of opportunity and that any pilot who diverges from mission in order to kill these people in leadership positions, they will be decorated, not punished. Hiding amongst women and children will not prevent their targeting. This is something those who protect these people also need understand, as it may be their lives being endangered as well. Hezballah needs to understand that despite hiding deep in bunkers that Israel has the technology to read their heat signatures from in the sky and has deep penetrating warheads and bombs which will seek that thermal signature before they detonate. As to which thermal signature they lock onto, that will be at the discretion of intelligence and the military commanders of the sorties flown for such engagement. Hamas and Hezballah leadership much understand that there will be no hiding and living to tell the tale. This will be their final encounter and their next encounter will be in the next world. Israel has had it with taking out the trash every couple of years while allowing the real leadership to live and skate free returning to their mansions in Gaza and Beirut. Never Again; a phrase applied to Israel fighting wars limited by the orders of the United Nations or the European Union and if they believe that the United States will assist in their protection, they are sorely mistaken. The State Department higher leadership might squawk and screech demanding Israel be compassionate and show tender mercy which Israel will interpret as doing so for her citizens such that they never suffer from these threats ever again. Any confrontation will result in a final confrontation and an end to their ability to attack Israelis in the foreseeable future. “This is the end, my only friend, the end. Of our elaborate plans, the end. Of everything that stands, the end. No safety or surprise, the end.”

The End!
