Let Them Kill Jews

 

The absolute venomous loathing displayed once more by the United Nations General Assembly, a representative majority of the world’s nations, has again come to the fore in their voting not to sanction the offensive actions launching rockets into Israel by Hamas in the recent violence. The resolution went further than simply Hamas rocket attacks on Israel, including its digging of terror tunnels, and launching of incendiary balloons at Israeli communities destroying thousands of acres of farmlands, forest and protected wilderness preserves in the Gaza envelope. The ninety of nations choosing to stand in disgrace was the result of fifty-seven countries voted against the resolution, and thirty-three countries abstained. This would be the final vote with the United States represented by Nikki Haley who stated emphatically before the vote in a final plea for the General Assembly to do as it had never done before, level charges against those who terrorists who would attack Israeli civilians and use its own people as human shields. This resolution was not so strong as to attempt to take on such charges, it simple wished to condemn the rockets, the incendiary balloons and kites as well as the border rioting.

 

She stated directing the weakness of the world in this area by stating. “the question before us now is whether the UN considers terrorism is acceptable if it’s directed at Israel. Is the hatred of Israel so strong that you will defend a terrorist organization, one that is harming the Palestinian people? Isn’t it time to let that go? For the sake of peace and the sake of this institution I respectfully urge my colleagues to this resolution.”

 

The closest thing ever reputed to be said which makes it one-tenth the way to being as callous as this vote was Queen of France Marie Antoinette stating, “Let them eat cake.” Here the General Assembly stated just as callously, “Let them kill Jews.” This is far from the first time that the General Assembly has done such perfidy. It is not even the most recent even rating such a horrific view as they more than outdid themselves in their recent hate-fest in their annual International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. This is simply another of the annual events held regularly by the United Nations and its affiliated agencies in order to vilify, revile, assail, defame, berate and in other ways excuse any and all hatred of Israel and by association, all Jews. The test case for much of this was the Durban I conference which had the noble title of “World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance.” The result of this grandly titled confab was a few days of purely hateful bile being regurgitated in the most caustic manner one could conjure in order to express the contemptable detestations they had or had heard about concerning the dastardly deeds which were intolerably conducted by Israel. The reason the reports only lasted a few days was due to even the Western media departing knowing there would be nothing of more to report, this was especially true as the United States and Canada had followed Israel in departing the conference declaring it an unfortunate waste of their time and so sorry what might have been a productive forum to discuss the world and some of its disparities and other ills was instead hijacked by some of the worst transgressors of human rights in order to castigate and defame Israel as the root of any and all ills which have ever befallen mankind. The Durban Conferences have continued to bill themselves as the protector of the rights of the downtrodden and those without a voice while continuing to allow those with very loud voices to continue to defame a nation which speaks softly and allows her actions to speak for her. But this latest vote was one for the books. When it becomes impossible to condemn an internationally recognized terrorist group which weaponizes their own civilians using their deaths as a means of attacking their object of hatred and thus condoning, with the world’s apparent blessings, placing their children and mothers in the line of fire, inviting youth to admire their rocket launchers during conflicts, chaining women to the roofs of buildings vital to their operations, placing their central command bunker in the basement of a large hospital and so many other obvious contrivances to force their despised neighboring nation to risk international condemnation whenever they return fire or target legitimate military targets, then it should become obvious that the United Nations General Assembly has lost virtually every drop of validity in their assumptions of determining right from wrong or being capable of directing their accusations accurately at those who are criminally intent at disregarding the rules of law and civility versus those who portray the highest standards of integrity during engaging hostile forces who do more to entrap them in appearances of breaking the rules of law than in protecting their own people.

 

Today, having the General Assembly applaud your actions one need only choose their enemy correctly and then anything they do in the cause of destroying their target will be blessed as actions above and beyond all that could be expected of a fighting force while their targets will be reviled as the cruelest and most dastardly people whose choices on the battlefield make the Mongols appear to have been the most benign forces of history. The means for attaining such a protected status comes from attacking the United States or her allies as the second best guarantor, or attacking Israel which gives one gold-star first-rate treatment as forces for the betterment of mankind and for making the world safe for little children. This status will ignore your actions in all other things and provide you cover for such practices as throwing people whose sexual practices of which your guiding book disapproves off of tall buildings, shooting your political opponents in the street without trials, refusing to return the corpses of your enemy unless they release thousands of terrorist prisoners, honor killing of women family members accused of inappropriate behavior (merely accused without proof), vehicular assaults, suicide murdering bombings and standing for the genocidal murder of the entirety of the Jewish People. At the very least, this is also a description of Hamas which the General Assembly just refused to condemn for their policy of assaults on Israel which began towards the end of March of 2018 and continued up through the recent rocket barrage of over four-hundred-sixty rockets in one day and whose violence has returned to the “benign level” of incendiary kites and balloons, assaults on the border fence, explosive devices used to attempt breachings in the border fence, shooting at IDF soldiers, burning thousands of tires to worsen air quality across the border and other forms of aggressions.

 

We would like to claim that we expect more from the United Nations, but we do not. We duly understand that admission into the United Nations has no real qualifications except that one must not be amongst the more exemplary members of the nations of our Earth. Were Israel to seek entrance to the United Nations these days, her admission would probably be refused. When the body of nations cannot even agree that the digging of tunnels under the border aiming to reach the center of residential towns for the purpose of killing families in their sleep and abducting others to hold for ransom does not constitute acts condemnable by that world body, then the world is definitely on the wrong track and heading for a great wake-up call in the form of a strong knock upside their collective heads. The problem is that these wake-up calls too often take far too many of the decent people we know reside the world over; often it is just the leadership which is to blame. What become a tragedy is when the governance of a region takes charge of the education system and transforms it into a militarizing and radicalizing instrument fomenting hatred to a the point beyond all reason and uses summer camps for field training and weapons mastery, then the result is lost generations and an entirety of a region which has become lost to mankind. The result of such indoctrination is a population who are unable to produce even rudimentary goods and has been molded as an armed extension of the leadership ready to attack whatever group of people they are facing. When people do such to animals, the result is an animal which, due to no fault of its own, must be put down. That is what people do with animals taught to hate people, we attempt deprogramming and kind treatment. We have had some experience with animals with a dangerous side and have had limited success using kindness combined with obvious negative reactions to their violent tendencies. We can only imagine that it would be equally difficult with people, especially if they have also been taught that any kindness is performed merely to gain an advantage over them and to be suspicious and rejecting of all kindness. This is also part of the terrorist training so as to make them more difficult to repatriate into normal society with any real success.

 

Hamas makes no bones about their intent for Israel. They desire Israel completely destroyed with every last Jew murdered. They train their operatives to believe that every Israeli who does not actively support Hamas need be murdered. But their extremism does not end there. They further insist that they murder every last Jew on the planet and that their vision and variety of Islam be imposed over the world and their leadership to rule over the world. Theirs is a strict taking of the current teachings from the Quran where the world belongs to the Muslims and only the Muslims be permitted to hold power and only Islam be practiced with Allah being the sole deity with every knee bending to Allah. Well, we are unable to even say that such is a nice goal as goals are a good thing for a people to have, as this is not a healthy goal for any people. There is one thing which Hamas holding to this goal, as do Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and a few other Islamic leaders such as the ones from the Islamic State and other terrorist groups, can be used to teach the Western and developed worlds. In these developed civilizations, cooperation is one of the main themes because these nations have given up on the concept of ruling the world. After suffering the Egyptian Empire, Hittite Empire, Greek Empire, Roman Empire, Byzantine Empire, Caliphate, Ottoman Empire, Mongol Empire, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Dutch, British, Austro-Hungarian, German, Holy Roman and various other Empires, they have realized that ruling the world is quite impossible. They have also concluded that the remainder of the world has reached the same conclusion. That is a false assumption. If only people were able to read translations of the things stated across the Islamic world in Arabic, Farsi or the numerous other languages which the Western media appear incapable of translating instead of relying on the chosen disarming world of peaceful bliss and loving warmth spoken by the same Imams and leaders in English, then they would be aware that there exists a basic belief across Islam that it will conquer the world and all will be made to convert or die and in the end all will worship Allah and follow the directions of their Imams in blissful ignorance. One need know that the qualifications to be an Imam are to be able to quote all or some fair amount of the Quran and produce concepts in such a manner as to gather a following. To be a great Imam one need gather a great following. One of the Imams with the greatest of followings is Sheikh Professor Dr. Yusuf ‘Abdullah al-Qaradawi (Arabic: يوسف عبد الله القرضاوي pictured below), who was banned from Egypt by President Sisi after the removal of the Muslim Brotherhood from rule. He has radio and television presentations as well as sermons on CD’s available throughout much of the world and preaches some of the more violent and hate-filled messages. He has a particular hatred for the Jewish State, the Jewish People and Judaism on particular and has a special hatred from the United States which he depicts as the second greatest threat to Islam. Sorry, our American friends, but Israel apparently is the greatest threat to Islam as well as the world according to Imam al-Qaradawi. He has the number one listened to radio broadcast in the Middle East and across North Africa (MENA) from his residence in Doha, Qatar. He also is the chairman of the International Union of Muslim Scholars holding a number of degrees purporting his great and deep understanding of Islam. He is a very influential speaker rousing crowds to his banner and being able to say what he believes and have millions be strongly at his side. His teachings could bring the body of Islam to conduct campaigns of war against those he depicts as enemies but he has restrained from making overt demands of his followers to violence. This may be part of the agreement granting him sanctuary after his initial banishment from Egypt. On the other end of Imams who gained a great following are such as Imam Muqtada al-Sadr who led forces against the United States in Iraq, Imam Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi who leads the Islamic State or, going back into history a short distance to remember the man who inspired Mahmoud Abbas and was the mentor for Yasser Arafat, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini who spent World War II in Berlin and in the Balkans organizing two SS divisions out of the Muslims there and persecuting Christians between hobnobbing with the Nazis elites and even having been rumored to have attended the Wannsee Conference where the Final Solution was launched. Yes, for the record, there are Islamic leaders and Imams who call for deradicalization of Islam and teaching the followings of the Mecca Quran over the Median Quran such as President Sisi of Egypt. We discussed the differences and reasoning in our article Which Quran, Mecca or Medina?

Much of the Western world has at best a scant concept of what exactly Islam means and the beliefs of its over one-and-three-quarter-billion adherents. We will say here that not all followers of Islam interpret everything including the Quran and the Hadiths reaching the same conclusions and there are a fairly significant number of peace-loving Muslims. But if only ten to twenty-five percent of Islam was to be radicalized and willing to commit acts of violence, that would be one-hundred-seventy-five-million to four-hundred-fifty-million people which is twelve to thirty times the total number of Jews in the world today. To put that in greater perspective, that is between one-half to one and one-third times the population of the United States. For the rest of the world, we will allow everyone else the pleasure of doing the math. We are taught that Islam is a religion of peace yet from the year 720 to the year 750 Islam spread from the Arabian Peninsula to threatening India in the east, the Byzantine Empire at Constantinople in the north and Spain from across the Gibraltar Straights in the west making it one of the largest regions under a single ruler in the world. It was this success which molded much of what Islam believes to this day and why they see themselves as perched on the edge of world conquest. That is the current default belief in Islam as they apply Naskh (Arabic نسخ), or abrogation, the replacing of older texts with more recent texts. They explain the corrections being applied to that which Allah preached not as a correction but that as situations change, reality changes and thus what is correct also changes. What is interesting is that once they replaced the peace and coexistence taught in Mecca with conquest and the sword as in Medina, the situation has yet to swing back such that peace and coexistence have returned to being the driving and central themes in Islam. By coddling these beliefs, the world brings upon itself that which it is rewarding. That is the problem with allowing Hamas to wantonly attack Israel simply because the world could not care less that Jews are being slaughtered, or attempted being slaughtered. The world after three-thousand years of lesson that what starts with the Jews seldom ends with the Jews still has not learned that allowing the Jews to be threatened will lead to all being threatened. This time, it is quite possible that it will mean all will be threatened. Iran, the backers of Hamas as well as Hezballah, Bashir al-Assad, the Houthis, Iraq, Hezballah and internationally the IRGC, has developed, despite what the current propaganda meant to lay fears aside, nuclear weapons and is probably but a test or two away from thermonuclear weapons and have developed EMP devices capable of destroying the European electrical grid as well as the North American electrical grid, and the world simply pretends that the threats they make are too grand to be believed. Iran does intend to do whatever they must to become the rulers of all that is left of the world making Shia Islam the dominant, actually only, religion on Earth. Israel has sounded the warning and attempted to tell the world from their permitted platform at the United Nations. The initial problem is that whenever an Israeli speaks at the United Nations, the vast majority of the world takes a prolonged smoke-break. When it comes to the Security Council, Israel is amongst a small list, if not the only nation, to have never held a seat and thus never been permitted a voice. Israel has been excluded from any number of United Nations agencies and an unwelcomed member at much of the rest. There have been areas where Israel has been welcomed such as the agencies which bring agricultural developments, medical developments as well as training and expertise to third world and developing nations particularly in Africa and Asia and now expanding to South America and those areas which permit Israel to assist. Unfortunately, these areas do not include the Arab and most of the Muslim worlds as they claim that Israel only taints that which they touch and never provide anything of assistance. What Iran is willing to do to become the foremost, if not only, power in the world can be measured by what their Supreme Leader has stated they are willing to have happen in order to destroy Israel. The Supreme Leader has stated that even were Israel to be capable of a second strike which would destroy most of Iran, as long as Israel was also destroyed, that price would be worth paying. Further clarification was made when he referred to Israel as a one-bomb nation claiming that with one Iranian bomb, Israel could be destroyed while it would require at least five such weapons to destroy Iran. If the Supreme Leader and Grand Ayatollah is willing to sacrifice his entire nation just to eradicate Israel, does anyone really believe that a deterrent exists which would prevent Iran from the attempted annihilation of any considered their enemy? The time has come to declare that Israel is a nation amongst the community of nations and not going to be erased and that the world need learn to live with one another otherwise we will all soon die together. So choose, do we live together or die together and if it is live together, that must include Israel or how can anybody believe that those willing to sacrifice Israel are not willing to sacrifice everyone else.

Israel was Thrown into the Bramble Bushes

 

We could go deeper into the rabbit hole and profile the first Bush, Prescott Bush, that worked against the Jews and made the family fortune financing and profiteering through providing the raw materials and aiding the production for the Nazi war machine which built their weapons, ships, trucks and Concentration Camps provided labor to Consolidated Silesian Steel Company in which Prescott Bush was one of the owners. Much of the family fortune was made on the backs of Jewish slave laborers making the tools leading to the murder of millions of Jews by Nazi occupied Europe. But, as we will see, the apple of the next two generations did not fall far from the tree.

 

Why not start with the easiest quote and the one so many of us know which came from the mouth of President George H W Bush’s closest friend, advisor with inestimable influence made during his time as Secretary of State. Of course, we refer to James Baker who stated, “F*** the Jews, they didn’t vote for us anyways.” Where this was the most outright condemnation of the Jews, it was not the worst thing which would emerge from efforts in the White House during the time it was occupied by George H W Bush. George H W Bush concealed his activities working mostly as the grand manipulator providing that which was required from a distance. He would also occasionally use more direct routes but often only when pressure to force Israeli cooperation was required or to directly thwart Israeli actions. When President George H W Bush entered into Iraq War I, Saddam Hussein made good on his threat that since he could not strike the United States with his ballistic missiles, he would strike Israel with his Scud missiles. Israel asked forcefully for the codes they would need to enter into their FF detectors (Friend or Foe which identify you as friendly aircraft preventing their being shot down by friendly fire) which President George H W Bush refused to allow the military to provide which prevented the Israelis from bombing the Scud launchers. He insisted that the United States was aware of the problem and it would be attended to in its order of importance. That is similar to the bombing of the train tracks and bridges leading to Auschwitz which never made it into even a single bombing raid even when all that was required was to bomb the tracks five miles from where they were bombed which would have closed the tracks to the targeted city and Auschwitz as well. During Iraq War I, the military never targeted the Scud launchers which were firing at Israel while destroying every launcher aimed at Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. That was a perfect example of selected targeting coordinating with not providing codes required by Israel to safely enter the airspace and do the job themselves. Apparently, President George H W Bush thought that the Jewish lives put at risk were required to provide live fire missile tests of the Patriot Systems provided Israel while giving assurances that the Scud launchers were a high concern for the United States. That was true of Scud launchers aimed southward but not of those targeting Tel Aviv to the west.

Then there was the ultimate tragedy which was a result of the efforts of George H W Bush, the Oslo Accords. When Israel was inundated with hundreds of thousands of Jews from Russia and other communist nations with the fall of the Iron Curtain, the Israelis requested the United States provide loan guarantees so as to procure a lower interest rate. This is a routine act performed numerous times with little if any mention, it is that routine. President George H W Bush demanded that the Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir initiate a building freeze beyond the Green Line and in eastern Jerusalem as well as promise that Israel would participate in the 1991 Madrid Peace Conference. This was step one on the way to the Oslo Accords. George H W Bush worked to set up the entire Oslo through back channels to whom he provided precious information from the personal dossiers on several Israeli political figures and select individuals of influence that the Norwegians could contact and use to create the Oslo Accords. Bush was able to peruse these dossiers through friends he had within the CIA from his days as the director of that agency. Between providing the necessary information for forcing through the flawed Oslo Accords and pressuring by the United States through his office, George H W Bush could be claimed to have been the father of the Oslo Accords. Shamir balked at these demands refusing to attend the Madrid Conference, the precursor to the Oslo Accords. Until a new Prime Minister was elected, Bush held up the loan guarantees refusing to budge from the demands made. That Prime Minister was Yitzhak Rabin elected in 1992, who entered office and was immediately hit with the same demands for the loan guarantees to be provided, which happened almost automatically.

 

That should be sufficient on the elder Bushes, so now to George W Bush and the damages to come on his watch. There were the perfunctory demands for building freezes and for Israel to take the necessary steps for the peace efforts. Seeing that his father designed Oslo Accords had failed to provide the additional Arab State, a terror state, in the heart of Israel, George W Bush pressed his Roadmap to Peace plans on Israel which included a prolonged time of building freeze upon areas beyond the Green Line and East Jerusalem. As time passed and the Roadmap was leading to simply nowhere, with the advice of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the new and greater plan was devised. This was the idea that should Israel provide the Palestinian Authority an opportunity to display that they could govern an area and make it productive, that such could be the beginning of a real peace. In order to accomplish this, it was required that Israel makes a huge concession which came with promises by the United States. Israel would need to withdraw everything from Gaza, the IDF, the communities, the factories and everything else including those Jews buried in Gaza and bring it all into Israel. Israel was assured that should things go awry, Israel could always simply retake Gaza and the United States would have their back. Gaza was taken by Hamas with Islamic Jihad and they threw numerous Palestinian Authority personnel off of ten story and higher rooftops. After Hamas and friends took control of Gaza, Israel has been attacked repeatedly in any of a varied litany of problems and attacks. Needless to point out, this ended the guarantees for the United States backing of Israeli actions should Israel retake Gaza as backing Israel in doing so would be tantamount to an open declaration of hostility against Iran. There have been four wars and counting resulting from the surrender of Gaza to the Palestinian cause.

 

Going back for three generations and in each we find the Jews or the Jewish State being placed in precarious positions which we have survived despite the careful planning to the contrary. Israel is still dealing with the results of the Oslo Accords and the failed Roadmap but still the worst blight Israel is still fighting has been the terror organizations in Gaza. Israeli leadership have leaked the news that the Palestinian Authority will gleefully return to the negotiation table providing that Israel surrender for perpetuity all claims to Gaza which will be taken to mean that should Israel strike targets within Gaza it would be an act of war, it is just vague as to war on whom? There we have another promise broken and Israel left holding the bill in the form of traumatized communities, numerous dead or injured, communities shredded and numerous other crippling difficulties. We do expect some to challenge that the Oslo Accords were the product of President Bill Clinton. That assumes that Bill Clinton was capable of procuring the agreeable intern and complete the plans which took more than five years of negotiating and one sided promises to bring such a meeting together yet Clinton managed all of this in under one year of taking office. Though Bill Clinton was at the signing of the Oslo Accords, the process leading up to that moment was a long trail, started and altered repeatedly, which makes George H W Bush the architect. The latest demand for the privilege of having Mahmoud Abbas insult you and then walk out because you did not send a thank-you note for the great and valuable insult you had received, was given. Treated as if this would be the one meeting would start normalization, everything around it became precious, well, at least to the Palestinian Arabs. What gave the entire situation its ethereal glow was their demand that Israel change the rules and allow unrestricted building in Area C and for Israel to make retroactively legal all structures which were previously built. Such a provision would result in an Arab building frenzy with Europe providing much of the supplies required. As one who observes such developments, we can attest to the assistance for Arab illegal building from the past (see images below). This demand is simply a demand for Arabs to lay claim to all of Area C. Were Israel to agree to such constructions, tens of thousands of these shanties with no running water, no natural gas, no electrical power, no sewage treatment absolutely no utilities and even no occupants which would be provided as required for any photo shoot. Sometimes, one simply wants to scream out, “Enough! Just leave us alone and then we can sort things out. As long as the rest of the world desires to make this their sole issue, then it will never be solved as the Arabs trust the world will destroy the Jews and the rest of the world are counting on the Arabs to destroy the Jews. We have an update for both parties; nobody is going to destroy the Jews. Nobody!

The Bush family legacy vis a vis the Jews must be measured as to how they treated the future of the Jewish People. The only true future of the Jewish People is Israel and no thanks to their efforts, the Jewish People have a future. The Europeans know and much of the rest of the world understand that the Jewish People came very close to eradication. The Shoah destroyed the continuity of Jewish life in Europe and the ensuing driving of the Jews from the Islamic World devastated the Jewish continuity and feeling of security which living in one city for hundreds of generations had provided. These acts devastated Jewish life around the Mediterranean basin and further afield. There are but two places with over two-million Jewish souls, they are Israel and the United States. Despite the best efforts of the Bush family and others from the United States and all their allies around the world who wish Israel could be erased, the United Nations has utterly failed to erase the Jewish State despite all but burying it under letters of condemnation. On the other hand, the remnants of Jews inside European are finding their Jewishness cannot simply be wished away and one born Jew will remain a Jew no matter to what extent they might go to alter that label. The soaring hate crimes against Jews throughout Europe have many worried and leaving to seek safety either in the United States or in Israel. The United States is in better shape than Europe, but better does not equal good. Jews are being attacked on the streets of New York City in broad daylight. Hate crimes against Jews have increased over fifty-percent each of the last two years and crimes against religious people show that Jews account for over half of the total; they are the victim more than every other religion combined. The figures in the United States paint a situation where a pandemic has broken out. This pandemic target only Jews and its targets include all Jews and not just those other Jews as so many wish to reject these unsettling facts. It is only a matter of time before the United States turns on its Jewish population completely either forcing them from the nation or placing them in camps for their safety, though such is something which seldom if ever ends safely for the targeted group.

 

One would think that as it has barely been two generations, three at the most generations since the Shoah in Europe which wiped-out six-million Jews. The signs are there in plain sight. As long as the majority of Jews remain uninformed about events outside of their own little circle, they will remain oblivious to the coming dangers. Then there are the Jews, the important, well, self-important Jews who are completely assimilated to the point of celebrating Christian as well as Jewish holidays. They have ornate Chanukah bushes which have an eerie similarity to Christmas trees. They join in the community Easter egg hunt and all other holidays. They are the good Jews who hold prestigious positions and many teach at the Universities, others hold respected positions in industry while some own high-tech companies, amongst other accomplishments. These are Jews who make an appearance at the Synagogue once or twice a year where they will make a pledge to donate ten-thousand dollars above the same amount every month in dues and building fees. Being a member of many synagogues can be an expensive endeavor as most families are only members for a period where they have children between ten and thirteen years of age and are getting Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. For most that is almost a decade as most Jewish families now have one or two children if they bother themselves with any children. When that charismatic megalomaniac does finalize the United States turning from the Constitution because, as all too many from the fringes have stated, the Constitution is like old Bibles, printed on animal hides and no longer applicable to the modern world. Both were written by overly self-indulged white males, two more strikes against them, who believed others had to live in the manner and ways that they lived and as such being no longer relevant, the Bible and the Constitution are being cast aside for the new way. There is something about a society when the freedoms are disregarded and the government has assumed ultimate power subsuming the rights of the people, they always decide to destroy first the Jews. Hatred and violence against the Jews in the public domain is an early sign that your society is beginning to suffer a form of dementia, a societal disease where a people are taught so little about the founding basics of their governance and what is expected of the government and the people respectively. Once they have no base understanding of these set in stone rules, then the government can flagrantly overstep their bounds and do as they please, as there is no outcry for them to stop violating those pretexts which you were never exposed. That also leads to anti-Semitism running slowly but inexorably out of control. From anti-Semitism it is an easy jump to hating other groups, perhaps this time it will be Evangelical Christians, specifically Christian Zionists. When the governance follows the religion of Secular Humanity, life itself loses all explicit value and the soul is rejected as just another religious aberration. Life is stripped of all higher meanings and is simply a biological progression from infancy to a decrepit old age. Because old age is a time of life where most people take more resources from the society than they contribute, every year or so everyone must make a cost assessment and from that decide if they are still a contributing member of their society or a simple drain on its resources. From that point, it is not far to the eradication of people when they reach a set age and the elimination of those with physical or mental disabilities, especially those which require intensive care. That is what we see coming in the future; life weighed by whether it contributes or is simple a waste of good oxygen. That will be a world devoid of meaning where even love will have lost its permanence and there will be no superlative works of literature as upon what would they expound if all is weighed in gold and nothing else has meaning. There will be those small areas where people matter and lives have meaning above dollars and Euros. They will also practice what will be viewed as the old religions and their areas will be considered to be the wild and untamed wastelands. They will also become popular places for the elites from the sparkling towers in the cities to come and marvel at the brutish and ignorant people residing in this wasteland and make jokes. But the real reason they will come is because as the most elite and amongst the intelligent, they will be perceptive and see that there is something in these wastelands which is worth more than all the wealth of their grand cities, here in the wastelands a human life has dignity.

Iran and Proxies Increasingly Threatening Israel Part II

 

This has been the misconception of late by Hamas, Hezballah and Iran, that Israel is simply second-rate and not up to facing their masterful and complete dominance. That is obvious in the above quote of the Supreme Leader’s Tweet. He believes the IDF is just not the same IDF as the great victor in the Six Day War and the Yom Kippur War. He thinks the IDF has gone soft and can no longer even fight against the terror groups amassed on her northern and southern borders. Needless to point out, despite his assessment, there has been no order for these two groups to actively attempt to destroy Israel. One can only wonder why the hesitance if the IDF is so powerless against these two supreme Arab forces. Perhaps we can explain the reason that they have not truly tested Israel. The reason that the IDF has appeared weak is two fold. The last confrontation in Lebanon the commanders were told to use restraint and not to completely destroy every and anything which posed a threat. The recent barrage from Gaza killed a Palestinian Arab and injured perhaps a dozen or so people and traumatized a fair number but did next to no damage despite over four-hundred rockets fired. This was because the Iron Dome intercepted close to two-hundred of the rockets preventing them from striking heavily residential or other regions. The Israeli defense basically rendered the Hamas rocket barrages mute. The same would be the case for any barrage of the tens upon tens of thousands rockets, and now some guided missiles, which Hezballah could fire, as the Israeli Iron Dome is just for the short range rockets. Israel also has three (perhaps four or five or more) other known (and unknown) systems which launch interceptors (or energy beams) to destroy incoming longer-range projectiles. The reason the IDF has not utterly devastated the entirety of Hezballah and Hamas weapons inventories and their support structure is because they have been restrained. Launch what you claim to be contemplating; an all out effort by all your combined forces in Gaza, Lebanon and the IRGC from Syria and possibly out of the Sinai Peninsula and then you will witness the true abilities of the IDF. Of course, the vast majority of those you order to engage Israel will not be able to tell about the force that struck them so fast and hard that they were frozen in place as they, will have gone to their virgins. Israel would prefer to make peace with her neighbors and all that is required for such a peace is the ability with Islam in general and the neighbors of Israel to settle the Palestinian Arabs outside the borders promised to Israel, the Jewish State, by the San Remo Conference, the Mandate System, the British Crown and Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. We do not desire to rule the world, to expand our borders beyond what was promised, or to interfere with any other worldly affairs, we would be simply quite pleased to be allowed to live our lives within our promised borders and share our discoveries with everyone, assist all who are suffering from some cataclysm, assisting those we can using advanced technology and agricultural methods and otherwise aiding the world the best we are able in exchange for being allowed the privilege of doing such.

 

But the leaders of Iran (formerly Persia but they decided that Aryan would be a better name in 1935 in order to proclaim their being the origins of the Aryan race) desire to complete the world of Adolph Hitler by engaging in a second Holocaust despite their denial that the Nazis ever conducted the original Holocaust. The people of Iran are not the enemies of Israel and many would be some of our greatest friends if only they were ruled by representative governance. Before 1979 and the “Iranian Revolution,” actually more the American experiment gone wrong in Iran thanks to President Jimmy Carter, the man who claimed the Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini was a man of the cloth so he had to be righteous and peace-loving. This was just another great reckoning with a fantasy, and not reality, by the one, and thankfully only, Jimmy Carter. The rest, as they say, is history which includes the unfortunate hostage crisis which held fifty-two American citizens for four-hundred-forty-four days before folding the day that Ronald Reagan was sworn in as President. Of course, there are a thousand million conspiracy theories that Reagan and the Republicans were behind the hostage crisis in order to defeat Carter. Whatever. These are the Iranians which the world is dealing with currently.

Now we would like to introduce the world to a simple, but apparently beyond the ability of Westerners to understand, reality. Western Civilization, for what it is worth, has no current concept of world conquest as these civilizations have given up on ruling the world. The Greeks, Romans, Spanish, Portuguese, British all tried and failed never quite recovering from their efforts. The United States gave it an effort after the Spanish-American War but quickly realized it was a spider’s web which would only ensnare them and rob the nation of her vitality. The United States then fought wars of liberation and until recently never attempted nation building or democratizing those nations they fought to liberate. These recent attempts at democratizing and nation building have inured the United States economically and challenged the fabric of the nation. The one item we must give credit to President Trump is his lack of desire to fight the world through military force and influence. It is unfortunate that he has continued the United States presence in Afghanistan and elsewhere other than support for the Kurdish people, as other than the Kurds the rest of the Middle East only wants the United States to bleed for them and then bag up their dead and go home. The United States does not need such friends, as these friends take far more than they will ever willingly provide. Israel need learn, or at least continue to recall this message, that most of those in her neighborhood are more than willing to sacrifice your forces for their power enhancement but will be on the other side when the wars come to your border. The United States is able to recover from such mistakes, over a decade or three, possibly a century, but recover she will and remain strong the entire time. Israel does not have that recuperative power, at least not on paper or spreadsheet. Israel does have that spirit which had saved the United States in periods passed, and Israel will keep that spirit into the future, as it has been a gift of the Jewish People to be leaders in innovations and experts at their own survival. The Jewish People may have survived because the Romans attempted to destroy them by spreading them throughout and beyond their empire placing them in every known nation of their time.

 

This dispersal, as history refers to this method of destroying a people, was a Roman practice for destroying persistent enemies. There are only two peoples for whom this was used by the Romans as far as historians have been able to tell. The better-known one was the dispersal of the Carthaginians, originally the Phoenicians, who were dispersed after the Romans salted the earth around Carthage and they faded into history, unless you have met a Carthaginian lately. The lesser known was the dispersal of the Judeans, by the Judans and eventually the Jews, and the one to survive despite this treatment. The reason these two peoples were chosen for such respect was the fact that they rose against the might of Rome on three occasion each, for the Carthaginians they were the Punic Wars which every naval and land officer in Western armed forces studies, and the Jews were of lesser degree but did succeed in throwing off Roman rule, even if only temporarily until they assembled the required legions, of the overwhelming numbers of legions the second time, twice. Still, the Romans preferred their conquered people to be nice, quiet people who acquiesced to Roman dominance with an almost appreciative submission. But the Jewish People survived because they held to something more important and more powerful than land, they held a core of principles which revolved their lives around Torah. The Jews had a sense of a specific purpose to be a light unto the nations and always held to the belief that Hashem would return them to their homelands and that there would come a Messiah always in the future. They had their belief in Hashem as the One Deity and that all idols were simply powerless gods. This kept them steadfast with the belief that any suffering was penance for past sins, past grievous sins, and that there was a future coming where they would return to their homelands and the lands would welcome them and bloom. The early Zionists might have questioned the immediacy of the land blooming, but thanks in great measure to their work on a water system, the land blooms and grows crops the world over sees as some of the most advanced in agricultural sciences. It took patience as there was one prophet who predicted the exact date, well year, that the return would come and it had to do with the number of years by which the first exile in Babylon was cut short because of our good behavior and promises to not again wander from the true path. Well, the Second Temple was destroyed which should tell you that the Jews strayed again. But there was the promise which gave a date, according to Ezekiel, who said the Jews were to be punished for 430 years because they had turned away from Hashem. This was to become the Babylonian exile. The Persians under Cyrus the Great defeated the Babylonians and freed their Jewish captives about 70 years after Judah lost independence to Babylon. This left 360 years which the Jews would require a second exile to fulfill, as one must pay Hashem when one strays. In Leviticus 26:18, Leviticus 26:21, Leviticus 26:24 and Leviticus 26:28 the Torah spells things out quite clearly, should the Jews not fully repent their sins they would be punished increased by a factor of seven. This meant their time in the Diaspora, or under foreign occupation, became 2,520 years on the original lunar Jewish calendar which translates to 2,484 years on the adapted lunar-solar calendar used today. Count from 536 BCE forward 2,484 years and you arrive at 1948. Additionally, there is Isaiah’s prophecy Chapter 66:8 which states: “Who has heard of a thing like this? Who has seen things like these? Will a land be brought forth with labor pains in one day? Or will a nation be born at one time? For Zion has come into labor pains as well as given birth to her sons.” Israel was basically set by vote of the United Nations as well as her own declaration to be born on a set date. These are among the miracles we have seen even to the modern era, and yet there are those who argue our legitimacy.

 

Iran goes one-step further and declares they will destroy Israel and the United States on their way to world conquest. Oh, that’s right, that is something that the developed world gave up on and does not believe that any nations believe in world conquest. That is how fast they forgot Hitler and for many their own histories and their ideas of world conquest. Well, those who believe in the Quran and the Hadiths are still seeking world conquest because their holy book demands such from them and they believe that Allah will give them the world as their oyster. The Torah and the Old Testament does not declare that Israel or the Jews should ever desire or expect to rule over anything beyond the lands which Hashem promised to Abraham. No world conquest exists in our books. We are to be a light unto the nations of the world which means that there have to be other nations for us to serve as an example of how to live. We are to be the ones making the world greater by example and gifts we provide through our research and developments. Israel has been providing remote African villages with agricultural knowhow and developments, water purification systems, cell towers and electricity from solar systems backed by rechargeable batteries in order to connect them with the outside word and improve their lives. Contrary to those who malign Israel, all we honestly desire is exactly what was promised to the Jewish People after World War I, our lands under the Mandate System which gave our borders to be the Jordan River on the east, the Mediterranean Sea on the west and our current borders with Egypt and Lebanon on the north and south with the Arabs repatriated with their original homelands. The vast majority of the Palestinian Arabs were also immigrants who came into Israel, either seeking economic advantages or were forced into Israel by the British, French and Arabs in efforts to prevent the Jews from ever reestablishing their homelands. The Holocaust had nothing to do with the establishment of Israel, as this was the intent of the San Remo Conference of 1920 and the following measures of the Mandate System established by the League of Nations and enforceable by the United Nations under Article 80 of their charter. That is what we desire and know will come to pass with time. That is the truth which has been completely disregarded and replaced with claims that Israel was founded on the Arab homelands of Palestine. There has never been any nation called Palestine and that is merely the Roman name for the greater region around Israel which includes Jordan. Iran also ignores this reality and claims, the same as the old anti-Semitic claims of history, that the Jews, Israel, are masters controlling the world and responsible for every war and misfortune which humankind suffers. They claim that they are saving the world in their quest to destroy Israel and following by conquering the world bringing it their version of Shiite Islam. Do not wonder, the Iranians are not the only ones who are out to conquer the world. Islam, as a religion, is based upon the conquest of the world and the conversion of every human to whatever form of Islam the conquering Muslims practice. Then there is the President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who believes that he is to establish the second Ottoman Empire and from there conquer the rest of the world, something that the initial Ottoman Empire fell a little short, by four continents or more. These are the ones seeking to conquer the world; Israel just wants what was promised by the world after World War I. Iran will not conquer Israel and thus not the world. For those who are entertaining world conquest, please just leave us alone, thank you.
