Time to End Minhal Ezrachi and COGAT

 

Both Minhal Ezrachi (Civil Administration) and COGAT (Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories) are obsolete, counterproductive, anti-Israeli, anti-Zionist and well beyond their use-by-date. They both were established during the heady and oft wrong-headed days after the Six Day War designed to administrate over the formerly Jordanian occupied lands, illegal under every last line of applicable International Law and solely recognized by Pakistan and Britain, with the potential purpose to permit their ready status to be traded with Jordan in exchange for a peace treaty. Well, Israel has her peace treaty and Jordan renounced their false claims thus the reverting of these lands of Judea and Samaria back to their rightful owner under applicable International Law, Israel. That should have been the end of the story and Israel should have annexed these lands legally registering the residents as resident alien citizens granting them limited political rights within the areas they constitute a majority but barring them from national elections until a means, path and completion of becoming Israeli citizens was accomplished. Those refusing such should have been encouraged to emigrate even to the point of bribery. That, after peace was reached with Jordan would have been the end of the issue.

 

Instead, Minhal Ezrachi, COGAT, the elite ranking officers with the Minister of Defense (or without if need be) plus the Supreme Court backed by a core set of Ministers of the Knesset from both sides of the aisle all support the status-quo. All of these disparate entities have a stake in this game as it extends their control over the lives of the littler people starting with the Israelis residing in Judea and Samaria and continuing through the remainder of the population. There are any numbers of reasons this fiasco which could be resolved and settled once and for all is instead perpetrated indefinitely. Most of the players are fiercely guarding their power to control people and areas plus retaining their well-paid positions as commanders in the IDF and their path to the highest echelons and beyond into politics or a cushy job once they retire from serving in the IDF. These are careerists more than soldiers who claim they know what is best in Judea and Samaria constantly painting the area as fraught with dangers with a wild-west kind of vibe where only the Military keeps things from worsening. They also prevent change and thus progress to a solution. They see their responsibility to extend a situation in such a manner such that the IDF continues to rule the area, specifically the Israeli or, more accurately, the Jewish Israelis always calling for additional soldiers and funding as everything is forever escalating with just the right inclusion of progress which becomes erased and any freedoms further curtailed at every terrorist strike.

 

The Supreme Court simply is chasing that perfect society as they envision Israel. They view Israel quite differently than the average Israeli. The Supreme Court is largely a political dinosaur from the 1950’s Israel as the Supreme Court is largely, along with the position of State Attorney General, a self-replicating monster which perpetuates the socialist utopianism of the original court with extreme leftists all with minimal numbers as exceptions. They would feel at home on the Haaretz Editorial Board. They could best be described as Universalists and post-Zionists. They believe in Israeli democracy over Israel as the Jewish Homeland which they view as too exclusive; and they are multiculturalists as well as ultimate protectors of the human rights for everyone and even more so the determined underclass, in Israel’s case, the Palestinian Arabs. The Supreme Court Justices treasure their acceptance by the elite of Europe, particularly the leading government figures and the elite of the European Union. The Justices crave the approval of these leaders and paragons of human rights, post-modernism, multiculturalism and, of course, internationalism which call for the erasure of borders and above all the acceptance of the other who while having been raised under oppressions existing from their past treatment at the hands of the Western World and whose culture is equal if not superior to the Judeo-Christian, never to mention Jewish culture described and laid out in Torah, and must be not only accepted but treated with respect denied Western Culture. These are open border with state guaranteed wage, a combination long proven to be the views adopted just before the fall of near countless civilizations throughout history.

 

What makes all of this far more theater of the absurd than simple fiasco is for reasons unknown Jordanian law is enforced in Judea and Samaria by the IDF as directed by COGAT and the Minhal Ezrachi backed by the Supreme Court and allowed such insanity by the powers on both sides in the Knesset with a few select exceptions. Observing Jordanian Law is anti-Semitic as selling land to a Jew is punishable by death and simply being a Jew on land under Jordanian law is illegal punishable by deportation to Israel within the Green Line, the apparent intent of numerous NGO’s and much of the Muslim world plus the rest of the planet with few exceptions, or death. By observing Jordanian Law it was thought it would facilitate the return to Jordanian occupation. This was despite knowing that the Jordanian occupation was outright illegal as the border between Jordan and Israel was set as the Jordan River in so many treaties including but not limited to the San Remo Conference, the Treaty of Sèvres, the ,a href=https://beyondthecusp.wordpress.com/treaty-of-lausanne/ target=blank>Treaty of Lausanne amongst others which culminated World War I as well as Article 80 of the United Nations Carter which further codified the Mandate System. These treaties give Israel first right to all of Judea and Samaria as well as voiding any and all of the land grant provisions by which leading members of the Jordanian government and friends of the King were granted deed to great stretches of these lands such that all the lands were gifted in this manner and largely was never developed. These land claims are utilized by NGO’s such but not limited to Peace Now, Yesh Din and Rabbis for Human Rights to sue any and all Israeli building in Judea and Samaria. These demolitions brought on through the Supreme Court by direct filing these NGO’s attack Jewish buildings from a single stand-alone home to entire cities such as Amona, which is currently under threat, as well as other “Jewish settlements” which are considerably larger and more developed (see picture below). Direct filing with the Supreme Court is legal and done in this case so that the liberal, left-leaning Supreme Court Justices can rule without requiring any investigation into the legality or even existence of actual Arab ownership. Evidence is taken as if vetted and verified thus these NGO’s need no tangible proof and an entire city can be ordered erased. When cases are filed to actually claim the land in court, many such cases are resigned from the docket before even a hearing as the claimant has withdrawn knowing the entire claim to be bogus.

 

Larger Jewish Settlement Under Threat of Demolitions

Larger Jewish Settlement Under Threat of Demolitions

 

Many of these NGO’s including those licensed and claiming to be homegrown pro-Israel groups are part of a post-Zionist, leftist, universalist groups which are all predominantly financed by European, American and other Western and Universalist entities receiving often less than one-third and some next to no funding originating in Israel. Some of the monies come from individuals directly, surreptitiously or through front groups or organizations; more from individual governments who also use other NGO’s to put distance, deniability and insulation between them and the monies; and some is funneled through the long and many tentacles of the United Nations and its various groups which are more money laundering operations than anything else. While almost every nation in this so-called civilized world has laws disallowing NGO’s from obtaining majority funding from outside the nation, some requiring well above half be domestically raised, whenever Israel proposes such a law the Europeans and American leftists, progressives and far right haters of Jews and Israel rise and make a cacophony of cries of complaints, screams of unfairness, yelping that democracy is under attack, squawking that freedom is being curtailed and other hooting and hollering over any-and-everything under the son being squelched and a fascism rising in Israel. All these accusations are made to prevent Israel having the same protections these other nations enjoy. This demanding Israel meet a standard not required of other nations has a name, anti-Semitism. Some claim it is anti-Zionism while others anti-Israel in the occupation, but all three are identical, demanding the Jew, the Jewish State, Israel to be judged by a different set of rules designed for the destruction and dismantling of the national home of the Jews. Yep, that is anti-Semitism.

 

Finally, much of this is the Israeli leadership’s fault. That includes all the leadership; the IDF, the Supreme Court, the media and especially Knesset and political hierarchy. The Knesset and political hierarchy could annex all of Area C with a simple bill with the only thing potentially blocking such a move would be the Supreme Court claiming it had some reason to belay and void the legislation passed by the Knesset. The way beyond that would be change a couple of punctuation and pass the legislation again and again and make it the biggest thing since Jews ate manna in the wilderness and allow the majority to get behind the idea and carry the day. Then Israel could city by city set up local governance for the Arab Palestinians, the former Jordanians, the Arabs holding other than legal Israeli passports; grant them semi-autonomy over the areas where they reside but keep them barred from general elections until they decide and take a path to citizenship. Emigration enticement with assistance in the form of a buyout of property with an added percentage for a clear deed should be Israeli policy including a records check to assure the land was not sold or belonging to another Jordanian/Palestinian Arab or other party. Even in such cases some form of emigration enticement should be in order. Emigrants must be made aware that any unauthorized return within Israeli borders will be dealt with harshly followed by an immediate deportation after prison sentence has been carried out. Israel honestly will by necessity have to annex these lands as soon as Hamas or Islamic State takes over after any remotely free elections. The Palestinian Authority (PA) is mortally wounded and entering its death throes. Abbas is entering the tenth or eleventh year of a five year term. Elections were once again cancelled; the PA had cancelled elections numerous times since their scheduled date of spring of 2009. Law and order is breaking down and radical Islamists are banding together and arming for whoever decides they want the base of operations so close to the heart of Israel. The time to act was actually immediately after the Six Day War with another opportunity immediately after Jordan made peace with Israel. Unfortunately, the Knesset and political hierarchy will continue dragging their feet and claiming that acting is impossible and need wait until the climate changes for the better. We’ve watched the world climate towards and concerning Israel and here have noted climate change and it has been the worst. Time has come to let the dust fly and settle where it will. Waiting has ceased to be the answer. There are six days before the Presidential Election in the United States after which President Barack Hussein Obama will be free to call a special session and pass a binding resolution negating all recognition currently existing for annexation of Judea and Samaria by the Security Council passing a Section Seven Resolution establishing the Palestinian State with the Green Line as its border and the whole of Eastern Jerusalem as its capital. Such a binding resolution would alter International Law possibly forever and would establish and likely add as a full member the new nation of Palestine. This is why action must be decided now and no delay must be permitted. The power to do so lies with the Knesset and the IDF could assist by working to prevent and end their assisting circumventing and neutering Israelis’ rights to settle our land. If we wait, we lose.

Israel is All of Israel as Defined by San Remo

 

We have discussed this almost ad-nauseum but please allow us to once more try to take a different tack and perhaps wake a few more minds. The San Remo Conference took place during the early 1920s close after the end of World War I. Obviously it took place in San Remo, Italy right on the Mediterranean Sea in a picturesque location and as always really plush hotels. Just once I would like to see an international conference or negotiations take place somewhere such as Tiksi, Siberia, Russia which also has beaches on the Buor-Khaya Gulf of the Laptev Sea, southeast of the delta of the Lena River. The pictures are below and we invite our friends to choose their preference in comments, if you will. We can guess that when a global warming conference to discuss the thawing of the tundra permafrost lands in Siberia and Alaska are held in Marrakech, Morocco that it proves the United Nations knows how to throw a conference as their studying thawing tundra on the arctic is held on the edge of the Sahara Desert proving the United Nations is more interested in going on holidays than solving anything.

Aside from climate change and getting more serious, Israel was given guarantees from the League of Nations and the San Remo Conference where the Mandate System was put in place which was followed by the Treaty of Sèvres which codified the decisions from the San Remo Conference which had based their findings directly quoting the Balfour Declaration as the basis for the British Mandate. This eventually led to the Churchill White Papers where when Transjordan was formed the Zionist Congress was guaranteed that all lands west of the Jordan River and the Jordanian border would remain for the formation of the Jewish State of Israel presumably sacrosanct. The war was initiated by six Arab nations, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, and Iraq with additional forces from Muslim Brotherhood, Pakistan, Sudan, Holy War Army, Arab Liberation Army and further support as able from the Arab League against the Israelis, who were not well armed at the onset as the British did everything possible to disarm the Jewish communities. Fortunately the Israelis soon received some arms smuggled and timed to arrive immediately after the British leaving and much assistance from what was then Czechoslovakia as well as planes and other left over World War II armored vehicles and rifles from France, yes, France. Russia also kicked in some armament and the Israelis managed to secretly hide a few British Spitfire fighters which somehow went unaccounted for as the British left. Still, Israel was outnumbered close to 2:1 at the outbreak and by the time peace was established Israel, where every man, woman and boys above fifteen were placed on the front lines while the rest of the population did whatever they were able including reloading cartridges to make additional bullets, making simple machineguns, armoring cars and adding small bore cannons or high caliber heavy machineguns, making hand grenades and mines as well as anything even to cooking and taking food and water to the soldiers who were fighting, that was the Israeli side. At the end of over a year of fighting the Israelis were gaining ground as the final ceasefires were being imposed which had they been refused for another few weeks by the Israelis they might have pushed the Arab forces out of all Israeli territories which were promised by the British and there would have been no talk of occupied West Bank which is a bald faced lie.

 

So, where does the idea of an occupied Gaza and West Bank originate? The United Nations inherited the British Mandate and French Mandate Systems after it was formed to replace the League of Nations which had proven incapable of preventing World War II. The United Nations has claimed to have prevented any war of sufficient size to be considered as World War III, to be exact. The reality is that nuclear weapons likely did more to prevent a World War III more than the United Nations which has problems with keeping promises or showing any amount of integrity or ability to enforce human rights and all too often their peacekeepers have been more of a problem to the women and children where they are stationed than those they are there to prevent from any malfeasance. Some things are too shocking to even list as nobody would believe us so instead we linked the disgusting behavior of European peacekeepers in Central African Republic which we could only shake our heads and feel saddened by these abuses. So, with such as a rule more than the exception in items concerning the United Nations and their propensity even from the start to bend and bow to Arab and Islamic demands, we really should not have been surprised when after the British set up an Arab Palestinian residents named Transjordan which was renamed simply Jordan in 1950 where the population was enforced such that no Jews were permitted residence as Jordan was determined to be a predominantly Arab population ruled by the Hashemite King that the United Nations then insisted on making the remaining land split evenly between its Jewish and non-Jewish Arab residents. The Arabs were offered much of the prime irrigated lands while the predominant of the land the Jews were to receive was all of the Negev Desert. The Arab League refused the United Nations suggestion instead resorting to their plan to annihilate the Jewish State and every Jew they could find. All of this was the result of the General Assembly meeting and drawing a non-binding Resolution, which remain valid only if accepted by all the parties; so the Arab League refusal invalidated the resolution allowing the situation to revert to the preexisting condition which was that the Jewish State would be formed as promised by Winston Churchill and the British had guaranteed originally when Transjordan (Jordan) was founded.

So, at midnight and one second Israel was born (though the Jews day started at sundown so they had celebrated their founding the evening of May 14, 1948; Iyyar 5, 5708) with the borders of the Jordan River and Jordan to the east, the border with Egypt separating the Sinai Peninsula and the Negev Desert to the south, the Lebanon border to the north and the Golan Heights for their border with Syria and the Mediterranean Sea. All the land borders had massed armies and the Jews knew that dawn would bring an invasion which they may be unable to repulse. That started the war too many Israelis refer to as their War of Independence and we recognize their viewpoint and using this name as it was a war to remain an actual viable nation but we call that war the Arab War of Genocidal Expectations. The Israelis claim they won their War of Independence while we hold that they survived the deadly threat which placed every last Israeli in perilous danger under threat of a genocidal slaughter promised by vastly superior forces. We look at this war more pragmatically and realize that the State of Israel as settled by the separate armistices between Israel and her Arab neighbors which were the Blue Line with Lebanon which was the same or very close to the original borders, the Golan Heights with Syria which was also close to the original with the difference being the armistice line was at the bottom of the heights instead of at the apex, and along the Sinai Negev border with the exception of Egypt occupying the Gaza Strip and the border with Jordan now left half of Jerusalem and what has ever since been named the West Bank (originally the lands were Judea, Samaria, Benjamin with Jerusalem having previously been entirely Israeli and their eternal Capital City) and occupied by Jordan. This is what is important about the wars of 1948-9; the Jewish State of Israel lost land to invading offensive armies namely having half of the Golan Heights occupied by Syria, all of Judea, Samaria and Benjamin (West Bank) occupied by Jordan. Jordan went a step further and declared they annexed the West Bank and provided every Arab living there citizenship and forcibly removed every Jew stealing their property and anything they were unable to take with them as they were forced to leave with great urgency. Only Pakistan and Great Britain recognized Jordan annexing the lands they were occupying but the United Nations and the world mostly remained silent not challenging the Jordanian, Egyptian and Syrian occupations. During this occupation by the Arab states there was absolutely no talk of founding a new Arab state using the West Bank and Gaza. The world remained silent about the occupied Israeli lands and simply adjusted to the new armistice lines.

 

When the 1967 Six Day War struck as Gamal Abdel Nasser massed troops from Syria and Egypt on Israeli borders, while for weeks on end broadcasting propaganda that the superior Arab armies would drive the Jews into the Sea, that war was inevitable. After the fighting had started, the Egyptians and Syrian broadcast propaganda telling of their great gains and how both were closing on Tel Aviv and hearing this, King Hussein of Jordan declared his intent to join in the massacre and allow his people to enjoy the spoils. Israel did all they could to convince the Jordanian King that the broadcasts by the other Arab leaders were lies for their own peoples’ consumption. Israel was routing both armies but the Jordanian King believed Israel was bluffing and was actually losing and he needed to rush if he was to be in on the end of the Jewish State. Jordan troops poured into Western Jerusalem and started towards Tel Aviv and the Israelis redirected some troops which were heading for the Sinai to back troops against Egypt. Within a few hours of the redirected troops they reported having taken the Temple Mount where the troops stopped and prayed with some putting on Tefillin and prayer shawls (Tallit). Their joy almost prevented their continuing their mission but by the time the fighting was halted, Israel held the Golan Heights from Syrian occupation, the Sinai Peninsula and had liberated the Gaza Strip from Egyptian occupation along with liberating Judea, Samaria and Benjamin (West Bank). The peace Israel made with Egypt, Israel returned the entire Sinai Peninsula while Egypt surrendered the Gaza back to Israel returning all occupied areas to their rightful owners on the Israeli southern front. Soon after there was a peace reached with Jordan who returned Judea, Samaria and Benjamin (West Bank) to Israel, its rightful owner. One would think that would be the end of things, especially with nobody able to claim lands which correctly belong to Israel.

 

No, such thinking would be incorrect. Here is where we start to make some people angry on both sides. First and foremost Israel must develop and build their own fifth generation fighter and cancel their orders for the F-35 JSF from the United States. This should most definitely be a priority. Israel must necessarily produce the entirety of the Military Equipment from the smallest truck to the most advanced tanks and aircraft including requiring their component parts, ammunition and other munitions and lastly they must also make bombs. These newest of aircraft require communication with their production company in order for parameters, potential repairs, stress levels and other reading the aircraft makes on itself and various items needed to schedule maintenance properly. The problem is that the aircraft must file a flight plan with the United States who must then approve any flight. Israel has the capacity, the means and the people to manufacture a top of the line aircraft and anything else. The weapons industry is a very lucrative business and Israel needs to be self-sufficient with all items concerning the safety of the nation and its people. Further, the aid money that Israel has received from the United States is earmarked with some heavy duty ropes attached demanding that Israel spend 75% of the cash buying weapons from the United States. Israel could survive without the money which has become an addictive drug which only weakens the victim. As long as you are on the dole from the United States they get to sell you defense weapons systems and you have no control over the future which the past going on eight years has proven may not be so wonderful if Israel is relying on the United States for their defensive weapons. Once a nation enters such a deal they reach a point where all their military equipment comes from the United States and one wrong person ascending to the Presidency and that nation just may awaken one morning being gotten up even earlier than usual to be informed that the United States has deactivated all your weapons systems and the nation is completely vulnerable. Now that would be an Excedrin moment.

 

The other main problem with Israel being dependent on the United States for weapons and arms, especially the entire inventory of the Air Force, is that the United States has too much power and a certain threat which could devastate Israel militarily just by simply refusing to allow Israel parts to repair their aircraft. Israel is in a sensitive place and really needs a radical solution to her dilemma. Such a solution will not be accepted by the United Nations, the European Union and likely the United States and why not throw in Russia and China for good measure. The solution we are referring to is simply claiming the remainder of Samaria, Benjamin and Judea taking all the land which would return Israel to the early morning May 15, 1949, the morning in which seven Arab armies moved against Israel and stole lands. Now would be as great a time as any to reclaim all of the lands promised and remove the terrorist entity, leadership and actual terror threats and be done with it. Those who desire to remain as part of Israel and are willing to sign and pledge to make a loyalty oath which will state that any felony or terror related conviction will result in the criminal being forcibly exiled from Israel may remain and integrate into Israeli society and take a path to full citizenship. Those Arabs who choose to leave Israel will receive a cash payout for their property and a resettlement bonus. The terror masters will receive our fondest wishes as we wave good-riddance! Israel would necessarily need to control their schools and thus their curriculum if there would be any possibility of retrieving the minds of many of the younger students and even potentially making productive members of the society as many of the students have thus far been fed a steady diet of hate for Israelis and particularly Jews. As long as Israel remains dependent on the United States she will be unable to take the steps required for a safe and prosperous future for her citizens including a number of Arab Muslims.

It Starts Once Again by Turtle Bay

 

It starts initially by Turtle Bay but in never stays there. Turtle Bay is where the launch gets announced but sometimes it is so hard to tell as the other instigations pop up blooming like tulips in the spring except these tulips have a deceptive scent that masks the first lies wrapped up in its soft petals, and lies is what is peddled. They sprout around Big Ben where Piccadilly Circus goes round and round. They tower with the Eiffel at the end of the Champs Elysées. They adorn an Arch of Titus beneath the great Colosseum. Eventually they explode onto the stage of the European Union Headquarters in Brussels, Belgium from where they fill the news world-wide gaining echoes about the presumed perfidy and deceits that Israel has used to avoid making a reasonable peace through honest negotiations. This year’s marketed Israeli unforgivable sin being paraded around the world is the misnamed “settlements” Israel had built presumably against International Law. When Israel ceased any and all building for ten months at the behest of President Obama early in his first year in the White House, it took Mahmoud Abbas nearly none of those ten months to do anything more than appear for eight minutes, forty five and two thirds seconds, give or take ten minutes, until arriving to negotiate the way only the Palestinian Authority can negotiate, namely demanding that Israel continue the building freeze indefinitely until the Palestinians accepted a peace with Israel, something they have yet to define outside of their propaganda dispensed constantly to their own people and the Israeli Arabs who tune into Palestinian Authority media including television and radio as well as Internet and social media where they promise the only peace they will accept is the liberation of all of Palestine from the river to the sea, meaning replacing Israel and pushing the Jews into the sea. You see, the Palestinian Authority, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Iran along with Hezballah and even Islamic State do not honestly desire the State of Palestine even if it has its Capital City in East Jerusalem and complete control over the Temple Mount; all of this has been offered and refused because what they actually want and will accept no less is the complete destruction of the Jewish State of Israel and its Jews and Christians slaughtered in a genocidal outpouring of blood in the streets coloring them red.

There will be a world with the European Union in the lead and the leftist governments of Europe and beyond, both new and old, France, Germany, Italy, Canada and the rest, all coordinated and amplified through numerous European NGOs, especially the NGOs paid for in part or wholly by European governments but licensed in Israel for maximum effect appearing to represent Israelis against their elected government all quoted to maximum effect by all the usual suspects both in print and on the Internet followed by debates in the General Assembly and a condemnation of Israel for violating the rights of the Arab Palestinians for some presumed international criminal neglect such as their not having elections since before 2005 as they could never have been cancelled by Mahmoud Abbas and the Fatah leadership in order to avoid losing their positions to Hamas challengers as was the actual reason, but why blame Abbas when Israel can be tainted. The new French leftist government has already threatened to recognize a Palestinian Arab state if talks are not resumed. This will work wonderfully as now all Abbas has to do is continue to refuse to resume the talks until the French recognize Palestine and soon to be followed by the new leftist government in Canada as they could never allow France to surpass them followed by Germany’s Angela Merkel seeking a distraction from immigrant purgatory. The eventual target of this entire orchestrated use Israel for a Piñata party is a Chapter VII Enforceable Resolution from the Security Council timed for effect for the opening ceremonies of the General Assembly later this year where the drumroll will likely be set up in early summer with additional hearings about the “settlements” and resolutions passed condemning Israel and restating the falsehood that these Israeli communities are illegal. Then during the opening ceremonies of the General Assembly will follow an address by Mahmoud Abbas pleading for the United Nations to remove the Jewish infestation which is encroaching on the Palestinian holy and historic lands and the Jewish desecrations of the al-Aqsa Mosque and their denial of Palestinians rights to freely practice their religion and pray at their holiest of religious sites on the Temple Mount. There will be General Assembly Resolutions passed which have absolutely no enforcement value but will be used for the maximum political value while the most damning being moved to the Security Council with urgent demanding pleadings that Israel must be curbed and forced to bend to the will and desires of the Palestinians so they may establish their state as they envision their ideal state which has been denied them since the beginning of time, before recorded history, predating the Bible, predating the Pyramids, the Sphynx, Stonehenge or even the onset of human existence.

 

This has been the operating metric for the past decade and it has almost always ended the same, with the world screaming for blood if Israel does not make some concrete concessions to permit greater Arab Palestinian freedoms and surrender even more lands. This has been how the expectations have altered to the point that the careful wording put in place by the Security Council after the June, 1967 Six Day War took six months of serious debate worded Resolution 242 with great care and intentionally made it a Chapter VI nonbinding resolution which only required Israel to surrender land, not the lands, not all lands, simply land which they had met by returning the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt when they made a peace agreement. Later, when the peace agreement was made with Jordan, the Jordanians relinquished their claims to the lands they had occupied, the real occupied lands were when Jordan held much of Judea and Samaria along with half of Jerusalem, returning the lands west of the Jordan River which were meant for the Jewish State since the San Remo Conference, the Treaty of Sèvres, the British Mandate and Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, but why allow International Law to interfere with attempts to destroy the only Jewish State simply to harm Jews and make them once again one of the few peoples denied a homeland. For what happens to peoples who have no homeland one need look no further than the current near impossible situation the Kurds are currently facing as they have their population broken spread amongst four nations, Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria and assisting one another is near impossible as they often need the permission from hostile government in order to assist one another. One can look at the history of the Armenians and their relations with the Ottoman Empire or simply look at the history of the Jews throughout the last two millennia which culminated through the Inquisition on through the Holocaust; something some Islamic forces wish to emulate a second time which is why Israel is so vital for the continued existence of the Jewish People.

 

While the Palestinian spokespeople, supporters, NGOs, leaders of nations, European Union elites and President Obama who is completely unfettered to unleash his worst and greatest damage over and above what he has already accomplished in his first seven years. The initial signs are that Israel may have lost their usual protector as it appears President Obama has already decided that when his next turn arrives to give the Palestinian Authority everything in their wildest imagination and maximalist demands but perhaps before the world sides with those whose intents are the destruction of Israel and the annihilation of every Jew on the planet, perhaps forcing the Palestinian leadership to define what exactly they are willing to accept and end all terrorism, incitement and at long last accept a peace with Israel and start the next period in the history of the two people living with respect, peace and mutual advantage and then perhaps progress could begin to heal the problems of the past decades. Perhaps that might be the secret to unraveling the reasons behind the lack of any ability over the past twenty plus years to reach even a semblance of progress since the initial signing of the Oslo Accords. The problem may not be on the Israel side as there have been offerings of peace numerous times during those years where Israel proposed and the Palestinian Authority leadership simply broke off negotiations without even a reply or a counter proposal, just turned their backs and walked out of negotiations. Israel gave up all of the Gaza Strip and the end result was a Hamas takeover and a raining of rockets onto Israeli civilians leading to a number of costly wars and difficult situation imposed upon the Arabs residing in Gaza as Hamas uses tactics which maximizes their hardships. The claim that Gaza is overcrowded to the point of leaving them no other choice runs in direct conflict with their claim that the Gaza farmers have difficulty in selling their wares in Europe and Jordan without any seaport. How a seaport would assist selling their wares in Jordan escapes us as Jordan has no port except the one they share with Eilat in southern Israel which is more readily reached by land. The Gaza disaster leaves Israel leery of any treaty which would also permit Hamas to take power in any lands granted to the Palestinian Authority just as occurred in Gaza. Still, it is well past time that the Palestinians give names to their demands relating exactly what Israel would need sacrifice for real and lasting peace. Any deal must leave the refugees to be settled throughout the lands where they currently are housed in reports which would only require the removal of the barbed wire fences and allow them to have rights or have them resettled in the Arab lands which will make up the Palestinian state. There must also be a guarantee which is observable and enforceable end to all terror attacks, instigation, the teaching that Israel must be destroyed in order for there to be peace and that the Jews are the decedents of apes and pigs. We are aware that such demands are too much to ask in any deal. But unless the Palestinians at long last state their idea of a settlement which is more descriptive than their past contributions which can be described with a single word which had been the closest they have come often given immediately before walking out, that word is “No” as has been their sole contribution thus far. Concessions should be withheld until the Palestinian Leadership defines exactly what they expect and we hope it is not the same answer the alien gave in the movie Independence Day when it was asked what they wanted from the peoples of planet Earth and the reply was, “Die.”
