The Obama Hollande Israel Conspiracy and the United Nations

 

President Obama and President Hollande have two major things in common at the junction; they are both lame ducks leaving office and both have a visceral hatred for Israel. The first jab at Israel belonged to Hollande with the first Paris so-called peace conference to resolve the Israel-Palestinian conflict back in June of last year which ended in complete and dishonorable failure. Amongst the attendees were President Hollande, US Secretary of State John Kerry, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault, European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs, Federica Mogherini and over twenty other Foreign Secretaries from European States and some Arab States (see picture below). Now they are going to go for round two with the same attendees and once again leaving any meeting with Israeli leadership until after the conference. There is also the claim, a valid fact, that they will also be meeting with Palestinian Authority President Abbas after the conference while nobody is to mention the December meetings in Paris with Abbas, Kerry and Ayrault drawing up the basics and demands of the Arabs to destroy or mortally wound Israel as the conclusion to the conference. With the same attendees, how are they planning on making things different; and that has a singular answer, President Obama. We are willing to bet that even if President Obama is not there for the start of the conference, if necessary he will attend at some point and remind the various attendees of the bold step of allowing Israel to be made vulnerable through his bold actions at the United Nations right before Christmas. President Obama will be there to challenge these leaders to take the bold move to really make peace by recognizing Palestine and all members nations to the conference doing so in accord with having the conference findings formalized and President Obama will take it to the Security Council and have them pass the same resolution formally recognizing Palestine and setting its borders with half of Jerusalem as their capital city all using the Green Line. Why not place a gun to every Israelis head and telling them leave or die in a hail of a million rockets raining down from the Judean hills, the heights overlooking almost all of Israel including its heavily populated central heartlands around Tel Aviv and five other major cities. Such a forced peace resolution would make Jerusalem undefendable as well as Tel Aviv, Dimona, Haifa, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Netanya and all the suburbs and industrial centers throughout Israel.

This conference is a set up for the imposition of a suicide peace upon Israel and guarantees war will start within days of Trump being sworn in as President as it is likely that Abbas promised to wait a short period, probably very short, after President Obama has left office and the Democrats and media can place all the blame on President Trump simply because he is the one in the White House when the fighting commenced and will be charged with doing too little to prevent any Israeli response. That is all the world cares about any longer, Israel and their making any efforts to survive and protect their citizens which the world sees as simply millions of Jews. Whatever one does, do not even try to tell these intelligentsia that Israel has almost as many non-Jewish citizens including Arab Christians, Arab Muslims, Druze, Bedouin, Baha’I and many others which make up a full quarter of the population. These unfortunates will be the ones mourned should they be harmed and Israel will be blamed for their deaths as well as receiving demands they stand down and not overreact to the attacks and that negotiations are being held again across the capitals of the world in emergency sessions and Israel must give them the opportunity to forge peace. The only peace they will be attempting to forge is what the Arab world demands, no more Israel and all the Jews gone. None of these noble nations for peace would allow a single Jew to enter their nation should Israel face the necessity to evacuate her population leaving just the military to try and defend the nation. The response of the world would mimic their responses from World War II when they knew about the Concentration Camps and did nothing, not even bomb the railroad tracks five miles to the east and destroy the junction to Auschwitz Buchenwald when striking the train depot just down the tracks. Then there was the Voyage of the Damned, the fated MS St. Louis and its slow trip back to Germany from Cuba and the refusal by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt to allow a single Jew to enter as a refugee of an endangered peoples as they are now taking Syrians, Afghans and other Arab refugees under President Obama. Actually, the fact is President Obama would likely insist the Palestinians delay any attack until some amount of time after he retires and can claim to have washed his hands of Israel and the Middle East and leave blame heaped upon the new President Trump with the mainstream media valued assist.

The perfidy of all involved, which remarkably pretty much leaves Israel out of the picture except for a possible photo op for French President Francois Hollande, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault, US Secretary of State John Kerry and President Obama immediately after the conference and immediately before informing him of the agreement and concurrently with it being presented for consideration at the United Nations Security Council. This is the opportunity which these leftist have been drooling over. With President Obama showing a glimmer of light, a crack in the armor which the United States had provided Israel defending them in the Security Council but now the United States has taken a bow and retired to the sidelines allowing mischief to run wild. This just might result in the second phase, the recognition which formalizes President Obama’s initial assault with their abstaining allowing condemnation of any Israeli or Jewish presence beyond the Green Line and demanding any peace be based on the Green Line erasing UNSC Res 242 allowing for recognition to follow by any nation of Palestine Arab State using the Green Line for the new border. This would be President Obama’s legacy and one he would proudly hold as his most outstanding accomplishment while secretly knowing he had simply instigated yet another war. Why should his ability to destroy nations and start wars not continue to the last day of this Nobel Peace Prize Laureate?

 

The Paris conference had originally been aimed to be scheduled for somewhere right before Christmas when the June confab failed. This was postponed and was set for after New Year’s but with some of the Foreign Secretaries requesting a later date it was then set for March 15 thus making “Beware of the Ides of March” an enticing title. For reasons not made public, the scheduled meeting was moved back to January and set for the fifteenth once again. One can only wonder what forces in the universe converged on all the attending nations to return the conference to five days before President Obama is scheduled to be retired from the Presidency. President Obama might be putting some real mileage onto Air Force One in the final week of his Presidency with a possible pressure trip to Paris to insist that the rest of the world do their part of the power squeeze against Israel and formally recognize Palestine. He will claim how he is depending on their taking the bull by the horns and wrestling with reality as this may be the last time that the world has the correct people in the White House and in governments across Europe such that peace can be forged if they steel themselves to the task. There will be arm twisting, back slapping, and compliments galore, but if that fails then the threats get lined up, but a forced peace will be the only result President Obama will settle for, anything less he will take as a personal rebuke. The reasoning before was that they could not set any borders as UNSC 242 and the careful language would not allow such to be forced on Israel. That was the reasoning behind the latest UNSC 2334 setting the new border negotiations to be set around the Green Line making using the Green Line and blaming Israel for not acting faster and sacrificing for peace as the reason the rest of the world had to step in and set a border while such was a possibility. This has been planned in the White House as their contingency plan should the impossible happen, Hillary Clinton losing the election. Never underestimate Hillary Clinton when it comes to messing up even a given thing and managing to lose an election, even to a confirmed clown. With President Trump now looming on the horizon with a complete Cabinet filled with pro-Israel group of candidates, President Obama is making this appear as a threat to peace and not the return of the United States support for her ally. President Obama does not see Israel as an ally but as the bane behind all that is wrong in the world and the basis of all wars, especially those in the Middle East and North Africa. President Obama has painted the lack of a settled peace between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs as the most pressing and necessary emergency the nations of Europe and the Middle East to work with him in this tight schedule before the inauguration and this opportunity being eclipsed by the end of President Obama’s term on January 20 about noon. Imagine President Obama at the United Nations Security Council on January 20 at about 9:45 crying to the other members to hurry and get the Paris conference adopted by the United Nations Security Council and make it under, please, please Chapter Seven to make it a binding resolution and not merely a Chapter Six which is a nonbinding resolution which is unenforceable and depends on both sides accepting the resolution. Chapter Six Resolution would leave doubt as to whether Israel could be made to accept the Green Line meaning that almost a million Israelis would need be relocated, a monumental imposition and something near impossible to do without severe destruction to the Israeli economy and making an instant housing crisis. What everyone is ignoring is that the Palestinian Authority would reject such an offer even if it were a Chapter Seven as they are sworn to only accept all the land and the destruction of Israel, everything else is too little to end their continued demands and terror war.

 

The coming Paris peace conference is the setting of the final trap by the Obama administration should they manage to persuade the European Foreign Secretaries to accept making a resolution recognizing a Palestinian State and setting the borders recognized by the international community to be the Green Line. Their agreement is the necessary introduction which is required by President Obama as the means for requesting similar action by the United Nations Security Council and if the Paris agreement can be done with a unanimous agreement with no dissenting votes, then perhaps such pressure of universal agreement in Paris would suffice to force even that Chapter Seven resolution and provide President Obama his vitally needed legacy as thus far no such success exists and his legacy is simply lacking. This is urgent legacy building and President Obama will refuse to be denied. What is the terrible truth is that should President Obama get his legacy, the world will be that much closer to a great confrontation between two cultures, one where preserving life is the greatest gift while the other finds glory though death and honors the fallen over the living. The world will have to choose sides and it appears that at Paris, Europe might decide to side with death over prizing life and set the wheels of destiny into motion. President Obama will be getting the greatest legacy possible, the legacy of destroying much of society having it all but surrender to the purveyors of death over the guardian of life.

United Nations Working Group Plans for Jews and Israel

 

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has discovered the source of Arab violence against Jews, and particularly Israeli Jews, was that the Jews made them do it. That’s right, the Jews have forced the Arab Palestinians to attack Jews like wild-men attempting to stab Jews or ram vehicles into bus stops and other places where there are many people, assumed to be Jews, in a close proximity because the Jews won’t give them the lands they demand. Has Ban Ki-Moon bothered to ask any Arab Palestinians other than the Palestinian Authority (PA) master manipulators of lies and half-truths or is this something he dreamed up as it has become the main theory of those who believe they have the answers such as Ban Ki-Moon, President Barack Obama, secretary of State John Kerry, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini or her predecessor the Lady Catherine Ashton or any of any number of European and United Nations Human Rights aficionados? Probably not, as he has stated this inane, malicious, odious, vindictive, anti-Semitic verbal conceptual compost before; and we are being kind. All of the others mentioned share this unoriginal idea that Jews are to be restricted as to where they are permitted to build their house or establish their family residence. There was the ghetto in Rome that to this day is where Jews reside or the Warsaw ghetto where Jews were piled to the point of making the entire area an unhealthy living area with health concerns whenever the density gets so tight that entire families end up residing in a single room sharing an apartment with as many other families as there were rooms with more than one often in the living room making the spread of disease a guaranteed part of existence. When Jordan occupied Judea and Samaria they refused to allow Jews who owned lands, homes, farms and businesses to remain in the lands they captured during their participation in an offensive war which intended to result in the extermination of the Jews but they had to settle for stealing their lands, businesses, homes and anything they could not carry as they were given merely hours to vacate and resettle inside what became the Green Line. Are these Jews now to be denied their own businesses, lands, homes and farms or is the ejection ordered by Jordan now going to be enforced for the Arabs left behind when Judea and Samaria were liberated during the Six Day War and if so where are they to turn to receive some form of reparations for their difficulties and loss of property as both should have equal claiming rights and reparations or neither should receive any form of relief.

Of course there will be no compensation for not only the Jews dispossessed of their properties by Jordan after the Arab Initiated War to Annihilate the Jews and Destroy Israel just as there has been and will never even be discussed what is owed the Jews who were dispossessed in multiple Arab and Muslim nations or reparations for the family members of the Jews murdered in Arab Pogroms across the Arab and Muslim worlds. There will always be reparations owed to Arabs by any Jewish state no matter how truncated Israel may end up as after there have been a series of peace accords each one giving the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians another piece of Israel for peace until the next Intifada which will be resolved with another piece accord where another piece of Israel will be awarded these Arabs just as before. But Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon had a lot to say about the Jewish problem. He listed the fact that the Arab violence was “bred from nearly five decades of Israeli occupation.” These odious ideas were voiced at the United Nations conference in Jakarta, Indonesia, on the “Rights of the Palestinian people” and the situation in Jerusalem. That isn’t too slanted a conference, now is it? Of course it is, but we are not supposed to think like that as that is thought crime which the United Nations cannot yet impose corrective confinement and reeducations, but they are working to get such powers as it will be for the good of the people, especially the children as everything worthwhile is sold as being for the children. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon knows that the violence that has been forced from the Arab youth as “the result of fear, humiliation, frustration and mistrust. It has been fed by the wounds of decades of bloody conflict, which will take a long time to heal. Palestinian youth in particular are tired of broken promises and they see no light at the end of the tunnel.” He is so wise and knowledgeable and worldly so we must listen and heed his wonderful words of copping out and taking the easiest way out targeting the civilized society which will not test the armor of his car while it transports him in New York as the Israelis and Jews in general are an understanding people who realize that people such as Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and the rest of the world political elite take the safety of blaming the Jew for the hatred being perpetrated upon them because Europe and all university educated from Ivy League universities and the finest schools in Europe where history is told with a twist as is taught in the department of Middle East politics which has become known benefactors such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates who dictate policy, course material and provides numerous teachers, administrators and highly active students who are often members of some Muslim Brotherhood sponsored youth group. They demand that their version of the world history and political science be taught, after all, they were the ones with the ready cash. Of course their influence at these fine institutions of higher learning extends beyond their teachings; their influence can be seen in school’s with active BDS and Israel apartheid demonstrations just for starters.

 

Following Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon’s compromise for the dealing with the demands of the leadership of the Arabs known as Palestinians will run into one singular problem, the Arab leadership has demanded the Israelis pull back to the Green Line in exchange for nothing changing except the Jews have been pushed back. They will then demand some additional lands such that it more closely resembles the deal they refused back in 1948 but chose war instead. Then they will claim there was some prehistory line that they owned and that needs to be liberated before they can be satisfied. Eventually the state of Israel will stretch from Nahariya in the north to Ashkelon in the south and only a single mile strip along the coast and as Jerusalem has been declared a universal city which anybody may visit, which was originally administered for the first three weeks by an United Nations peacekeeping force but due to unforeseen small difficulties the enforcement of equal rights and equal access to Jerusalem has been turned over to the Waqf and the Arab Palestinian government. Should such a series of appeasements be attempted to appease Mahmoud Abbas or Saab Erekat then Israel would be pressed to their coast with the Mediterranean Sea plus access to Jerusalem which at last is safely in the hands of the Muslim Jordanian Waqf which Jews would need petition for permission to enter Jerusalem. What more could go wrong?

 

Oddly enough things could get worse if Israel were to do as so many believe would end the problem, but would it? The idea is Israel should unilaterally form the two states as it is drawn up by the United Nations but we already know the Arabs would reject such as they have rejected such an offer twice already. There are those few who claim it is not too late to give the Jews the Island of Madagascar, which was an alternative to the Middle East that was actually presented and wisely rejected by the Zionist Congress. Imagine what such would have caused, there would have been a tribe of Arabs living in southwestern Yemen near the Bab al-Mandab Strait which could trace their roots back to Madagascar and Israel would be facing the exact same problem. Actually it would be worse as the Jews have no recognized claims to Madagascar. Our actual homeland is what we have a rightful claim to complete with treaties and validations from three-thousand-years of history, so the Zionist Congress knew what they had set in motion. They just were unaware that the world would treat Israel both as the only place every Jew should be located, willingly or unwillingly, while at the same time demanding that the Jews return to their former countries of residence and resume a normal life as if nothing had happened. Never mind that many of the Jews who attempted exactly the same return were met with hostile reactions by their former neighbors and if they were fortunate they escaped with their lives and becoming true people without a country. If ever the Jewish People were in need of a homeland, the end of World War II was that time. Many a European Jew had no place they could call their own and things were turning from bad to worse for the Jews residing in the Arab and Muslim worlds. If ever the Jews were in need of a blessing, the holy lands were just that, the place where a Jew could relate to the area from the stories they read about and had studied from Torah and other Bible narratives. A Jew could arrive at the shores of this land and know they were coming home, that the dry bones were collecting into a people again with the first signs of sinew holding them into individual persons representing every Jew who came home. This was the second wave and the wave which forever proved that we had matured and grown sufficiently deserving of making the return to Eretz Yisroel, but who knew this truly was their land.

 

But once again the successes of the Jewish people would cause additional problems. The Jews brought the land to life revealing her abundance which had remained hidden from all others who came during the land’s history. This made for great wealth and opportunities which the surrounding Arabs saw and desired to also reap the benefits of the returning Jews so they flocked to Israel as well after the War of Annihilation, also called Israel’s War for Independence when War for Survival would even have been more apt a name. The Arabs have never been happy for others to be more productive; then they demand their share of the wealth when that is the case. That is the entire idea behind the Jizya, the tax on those who are not Muslim. The problem in Israel is that they cannot apply a Jizya on the Jews, an especially onerous Jizya commensurate with their apparent good fortune which has to be at the expense of Allah’s most wonderful servants, thus the building anger. Further, the fact that Israel is not ruled by Muslims, more specifically Arab Muslims, after the lands had been conquered by Muslims, more specifically Arab Muslims, it must not be permitted to fall under any other rule, it has been Islmisized. Many like to quote the Quran where it recognized the Jewish ties to Eretz Yisroel and made it a deed Muslims were obliged to permit that the Jews reside and rule themselves in their lands. The problem is that was part of the Mecca Quran and was superseded by the verses which simplified things in the Medina verses of the Quran which take precedence over anything contradictory from the Mecca Quran. The Medina Quran simply divided the world into two houses, the House of Islam (Dar al-Islam Arabic: دار الإسلام) and House of War (Dar al-Harab Arabic: دار الحرب) which defined the world as that pacified by Islam and which could never be permitted to be removed from Islamic rule, and the lands yet to be pacified by Islam. Islam sees all the world which is not of Islam as a vile and violent place simply needing the guidance and order of Islam societal structure under the Sharia (Islamic Law which governs all aspects of life down to the individual actions such as how to eat, dress etc.) where the Muslims are supreme and all others are Dhimmi or souls left wanting of Islam who were of a lesser level of human being than a follower of Islam who are blessed with great knowledge and understanding as they have memorized or at least learned much of the Quran, Hadiths and other Islamic writings and thus have been introduced to all knowledge in the cosmos as there is only the Quran and all other writings are insignificant as the Quran holds all knowledge. For a short but helpful explanation of the Mecca and Medina Quranic writings, their difference and the reasons societal and in the like of Muhammad which made them so different may we recommend one of our much earlier articles on the subject titled Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? and hope it and the other links, mostly in the comments section, will be of some help.

The fact that the area of Israel and Jerusalem in particular are so important to prevent the Jews from having their own areas and with self-rule as well is simply an anathema to the followers of Islam as they have already spilled copious amounts of blood fighting to prevent the Christians from taking back the Holy Lands they had hoped that was a done deal after the prolonged Caliphate both before and after the rise of the Ottomans who at least had the decency of being Islamic themselves. For this reason the Muslims insist on retaining these lands. The Muslim nations with assistance from the non-aligned nations (NAM) hold a large majority when voting as a bock throughout the United Nations with the exception of the Security Council and only not there due to the veto wielding power of the five permanent members, Russia, China, France, Britain and the United States. This majority holds in the Human Rights Council, UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), the BDS NGOs which are controlled, though many likely are unaware of this, out of Ramallah and the offices of Mahmoud Abbas, Saab Erekat, Yasser Abed Rabbo, Hanan Ashrawi, Khaled Abu Toameh, Mohammed Omer, Nabil Sha’ath, Mohammad Dahlan, Jibril Rajoub, Mohammad Shtayyeh and Salam Fayyad along with who knows who else from the ranks of the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization), the Fatah Party, the al-Aqsa Martyr’s Brigades upper ranks and possibly even Marwan Barghouti from out of his jail cell, or more accurately, his social club and editorial board headquarters with slight restrictions on travel though writing editorials for the New York Times and other leftist news outlets apparently is not too difficult a task. The United Nations and international NGOs are all too often directly or indirectly influenced or even organized and run by the Arabs of the Palestinian Authority and the associated terrorist groups that it boggles the mind. Then there are the left wingnuts who protest Israel and only Israel and are often given generous budgets through the many arms, councils, organizations and study groups and all of this international industry being co-managed between the United Nations and Ramallah. These offices of the PLO, PA and the various United Nations NGOs are so ubiquitous as to drown out any truths which might almost surface before being trampled and maligned in the world media, at conferences, in press releases, in the General Assembly Emergency Meetings, which thus far have convened for the sole purpose of denouncing Israel. The denunciations vary little usually covered by for any one or combination of the following, preventing the successful attaining of peace at talks the Arab PA members walked out of, settlements being built, settlements intended to be built, decisions not to demolish settlements, the existence of settlements (and here we need to define settlements because there are Arab settlements built illegally all over Judea, Samaria, the Galilee and the Negev but the United Nations and their ilk only mean places where Jews are residing), non-judicial executions which are self-defensive use of force resulting in the death of an attacker by any Israeli Jew be they police, IDF or armed citizens (we know how the United Nations feels about armed citizens and especially those who are actually using these weapons for their own or others’ defense) disproportional use of force (this simply translated to actual regular people language means that there are insufficient dead Jews as the United Nations has decided that Israel must be required to have equal or excess casualties as do the Arabs on any confrontation be it war in Gaza or Intifada in Israel). Then there is the Human Rights Commission which has in its bylaws a requirement to denounce Israel for the indignity of that day at the commencement of every session even before the main reason for meeting has been stated, it takes precedence over all other considerations and is done even of the session was called to address the Arab-Israeli conflict which will result in a release of a litany of condemnations of Israel and on the rarest of occasions a rebuke of Mahmoud Abbas or some other PA official but nothing consequential or actually harsh in it tone possibly even apologetic in nature as in we hate to have to do this but here is a slap on the wrist for something Israel would be facing the International Court of Justice. If the PA, Hamas, Iran, President Obama, Secretary of State Kerry, United States Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, United Nations High Commissioner on Human Rights Prince Zeid Ra’ad Zeid Al-Hussein, the former Jordanian Ambassador to the United nations and in the line of succession to be the next King of Jordan had their way there exists a better than average chance that Israel would be erased and all Jews placed on a spaceship heading into deep space with no discernible destination other than not Earth. What could possibly go wrong?

Unsubstantiated, Deranged, Hysterical, Accusations Abound on Israel

When it comes to hyperventilating while spitting out preposterous accusations over Israeli actions, nobody can quite measure up to the absurdities which emanate from the mouth of Palestinian Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. Abbas has not let us down with his latest tirade describing the Israel defense against the escalated rocket fire by Hamas and other terrorists out of Gaza striking a number of civilian targets while the majority have either been intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system developed and deployed by Israel. Perhaps the easiest way to critique his words is to simply quote the applicable accusations and then point out the complete lack of sanity or sense his hysteria contains. Chairman Abbas stated during a crisis meeting of the PA leadership in Ramallah claiming, “It’s genocide – the killing of entire families is genocide by Israel against our Palestinian people. What’s happening now is a war against the Palestinian people as a whole and not against the factions. We know that Israel is not defending itself, it is defending settlements, its main project.”

 

Taking Mahmoud Abbas’s inanities in order, his referring to the Israeli defensive responses to a general increase in terrorist operations by Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Fatah, Palestinian Authority and likely other terror entities including the abduction and murder of three Israeli students; increasingly perilous condition traveling the roads due to the hurling of rocks from sling fired stones to blocks the size of cinderblocks and beyond severely damaging cars and causing injuries which have put two infant girls under age two in hospitals in comas, both released with one making slow and steady improvement and the other needing constant care as she has just barely regained consciousness, causing the death of Asher Palmer and his one year old son, Yonathan, and numerous close calls which have left many with related nervous disorders such as nightmares and panic attacks; knifings even included at the entrances to the Old City of Jerusalem and even near the Western Wall, carjacking and the ramping of the numbers of rockets out of Gaza aimed at civilian Israeli targets as being an attempt by Israel to commit genocide should be seen as ridiculous by even a casual observer. The fact that Abbas is making the accusation of genocide by the Israelis against the Palestinians from his office in Ramallah should be sufficient to cast doubt into the claim as he would be among the first that Israel might target if genocide were the Israeli intent. Additionally, the only actions Israelis have taken in Judea and Samaria has been the all-out three week search for the abducted youths who were kidnapped by Hamas operatives from within the Palestinian Authority areas of Hevron which did not result in thousands upon thousands of dead Palestinians and a virtual depopulating of the city of Hevron as any decently planned and executed genocidal attack would have produced. Even the death toll in Gaza, where Israel has escalated their response to the barrages of rockets proportionally to the rocket fire, has remained very low and not been the tens of thousands any genocidal assault would have caused. Some might even point to the fact that the Israeli attacks have mostly been targeting empty buildings and that when there might have been a chance that civilians were present at any of the targets that Israeli forces have warned the Palestinians in Gaza of the imminent attack so as to permit them to leave the area and move to safety. The worst toll of life from a single Israeli strike came when Hamas called for their own citizens to immediately flock to the location which Israel had just warned the members of the Hamas leader whose house was being targeted. This still resulted in fewer than ten fatalities despite Israelis calling the family members and having a drone drop a flare on the target indicating it was to be struck. As was pointed out by a British retired commander, the Israelis giving warnings to the Palestinians even to include members of terrorist groups who may be present at the location to be struck, providing the terrorist is not the target, is the worst method of executing a surprise attack.

 

Another claim by Mahmoud Abbas is, “war against the Palestinian people as a whole and not against the factions,” where by factions he means to indicate terrorist groups, an admission he refuses to ever concede. Abbas defines every form of attack, bombing, murder, arson, even hurling firebombs at checkpoints manned by civilians in an effort to protect their village from terrorist attacks as rightful attacks to cast off the yoke of Israeli occupation while should Israel actually defend themselves from an assault on their person Abbas defines such as a crime against humanity and a war crime and demands the world bring charges and prevent the Israelis, or as he sometimes slips up and says, the Jews, from defending themselves and impeding the Palestinian efforts to liberate the entirety of their ancient homeland, which means all of Israel from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. Thus far the entirety of the Israeli efforts since the massive and rapid increase in rockets fired at Israeli civilians living almost anywhere in the entirety of Israel, as Hamas rockets have reached the southern confines of Haifa which is well into the north of the country and close to as far as one can be from Gaza where Hamas is firing from, has been the areas from which the rockets are launched and related targets including the homes of the leadership of the terrorist groups responsible for the barrages which all lie within Gaza. The rockets have easily reached Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Bathsheva, and the central hub where the majority of Israelis and Israeli industry and infrastructure lie, and threaten the agricultural northern plains and there is a definite chance that Hamas or Islamic Jihad may have a limited numbers of rockets, or possibly missiles, which could reach the entirety of Israel to include the Golan Heights in the northeast corner and farthest points from Gaza. Another truth which will likely remain unmentioned, or at least not receiving the proper emphasis it deserves, is that Israel pulled up everything including the communities, IDF bases, checkpoints and training facilities, and even reburied the Jews from every cemetery which was within the environs of Gaza and turned the entirety over to the Palestinian Authority in August of 2005 and there has not been a single Jew residing within Gaza since then. Gaza is not an occupied or even contested area as Israel surrendered all claims and interests in those lands. The Palestinian Authority subsequently lost control of Gaza to Hamas in a short but bloody coup and as soon as terrorist strikes erupted from the Hamas controlled Gaza, Israel then place an embargo on the entirety of Gaza. The Israeli embargo is recognized and has been granted the blessings as completely legal by the United Nations and virtually every required review. There has not been even one single, lonely, errant, stray, or any other definition for a bombing falling within Judea or Samaria which make up what Jordan invented the name West Bank to blur the historic claims of the Jewish People to the lands Jordan occupied between 1948 and June of 1967. That puts an end to the claims that Israel is targeting the entirety of the Palestinian areas.

 

The final part quoted from the myriad of falsities being expressed by Mahmoud Abbas, among others, was, “We know that Israel is not defending itself, it is defending settlements, its main project.” With all the Israeli strikes falling within Gaza and the above offered proof that there exist no Israeli settlements or even a single Israeli, Jew or otherwise, residing or even strolling accidentally within the confines of Gaza, that the Israeli retaliation is purely a response to the barrages of rockets and accompanying mortar fire and has absolutely no correlation or other attachment or link to what are erroneously called the Israeli settlements. These statements and the others which have already been quoted by mainstream media worldwide attributed to Mahmoud Abbas with the intentions of purporting that his statements must be true as he is a man of peace and one who only speaks truth. Nothing could be further from the truth and this is something the world must realize and recognize if they desire to hold any valid position when they make demands of Israel. The impetus behind these outrageous claims and accusations against Israel by Mahmoud Abbas is committed in order to give blanket validity to any and every wild and erroneous accusation emanating from all points on the globe against Israel which will continue until Israel has been berated and belittled into ceasing their offensive before they have completed the destruction of Hamas and the other terrorists operating in Gaza. These efforts are being done in support of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and any other groups which are allied in the efforts to destroy Israel as the State for the Jewish People.

 

Already, echoing the emotion if not the literal words of Abbas, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon was quoted claiming, “I am alarmed by the new wave of violence that has engulfed Gaza, southern Israel and the West Bank — including East Jerusalem.  This is one of the most critical tests the region has faced in recent years.” Additionally he added, “Gaza is on a knife edge. The deteriorating situation is leading to a downward spiral which could quickly get beyond anyone’s control. The risk of violence expanding further still is real. Gaza, and the region as a whole, cannot afford another full-blown war.” All respect Secretary General, but give us a break. Syria for the past years was no threat to the region as a whole. ISIS marauding their way across Iraq crucifying and beheading opposition forces and innocent civilians as they go are posing no general threat to the region. The Iranian nuclear weapons program and demand that they be permitted as much as ten times the numbers of centrifuges in order to produce highly enriched uranium in massive quantities also could never pose as a threat to the region. Hezballah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaeda and Boko Haram all are of little if any threat to the region. But, of course, Israel responding to provocations of barrages of rockets and mortars at Israeli civilian populations and infrastructure is the only direct threat to the region. Well, excuse me!
