Preview of Middle East Coming Attractions

 

We open our fictional projection somewhere in the not too distant future with the Mullahs in Iran officially announcing their entrance into the nuclear age and as a full-fledged member of atomic weapons club. They went further with actions to showcase their accomplishments with two detonations. The first detonation was a test in a deep bunkered test facility which they had dug in the southwestern desert region which measures approximately twenty-five kilo-tons. Reactions referred to this blast as being a Hiroshima type atomic weapon and minimized the threat. This reaction was corrected early the next morning when an above ground test was conducted where the Iranians has launched a missile from eastern Iran towards northern Syria near the border with Turkey. This missile struck its target, a Kurdish strongpoint where they were dug in against the Turkish forces. This weapon was a thermonuclear device and was approximated to have been in the twenty to twenty-five megaton yield and was sufficient to complete obliterate the small Kurdish stronghold and the entirety of the city. This has drawn responses from the European signatories to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPA) filled with ire blaming President Trump for the failure of the agreement solely because he pulled the United States support for the deal. The French, German, British, European Union and United Nations all condemned these events laying all the blame at the front door of the White House in Washington D.C.

 

The new American President, sworn in just hours before these tests were carried out, stood steadfast that the United States was not in approval of the Iranian use of a nuclear device against the Kurdish population and the resultant killing of tens of thousands of civilians. The Iranian Supreme Leader blamed their need to use the weapon on the United States arming the Kurdish forces leading to the stand-off in northern Syria. Also, in reaction to these events, Israel has mobilized half of the IDF reservists and placed the military on an emergency stand-by mode where all reserves are required to carry a phone or be near to a phone with which they could receive any call-ups which may be deemed necessary. The Israeli Knesset called an emergency meeting for this afternoon and the Prime Minister’s emergency cabinet is meeting this morning. The newly crowned King of Saudi Arabia announced his nation’s intention to process uranium and build nuclear weapons as a response to the Iranian threat. Pakistan announced that they had already honored their commitment to Saudi Arabia which they made when the Saudis financed the Pakistani nuclear research and production of their atomic weapons they felt the need to produce in response to India going nuclear. Informed sources tell that Pakistan released six planes which have already landed in three separate Saudi Air Bases each craft carrying two compatible warheads which will fit atop the existing Saudi missiles. Each of the Pakistani devices can be programmed to produce yields from ten to twenty-five megatons. These weapons are being considered a gift from Pakistan and they claim they are now paid in full to the Saudis.

 

The above is a fabrication of what the Middle East could soon have as its appearance. The major situation at that point would be an Iranian-Saudi exchange with Iran figuring their losses would be minimal compared to waiting and having the Saudi produce hundreds of weapons. Nobody would know exactly how many warheads the Iranians would have produced because of the fact that Iran has uranium mines with which to provide their own raw materials for nuclear warhead production (see map below). Iran also has the reactors from which they can produce additional types of weapons fuels. The problem is it is also such a scenario which could become reality next year, next month, next week, later today. This is the reality with which we live with the exception of the Iranians testing their weapon themselves. The Iranian scientists and engineers have been on-board at every nuclear test conducted by North Korea and some have surmised that at least two of these tests were of Iranian design being tested by North Korea as part of their cooperation in nuclear weapons and missile systems. Anyone believing that anything stands between the Iranians building a thermonuclear warhead should immediately disabuse themselves of such thinking. Iran not only had the plans but has probably found the means of either smuggling in the required electronic devices or building them in Iran. The world leaders should not be talking about how to prevent Iran from building nuclear weapons and start thinking of how they might contain an already nuclear armed Iran, as that is a far more likely current reality than the lollipop hallucinatory views taken by the Europeans Union, European nations and United Nations. It is far more likely that Iran has fifty to one-hundred thermonuclear devices than it is they do not even have their design for a weapon already completed.

The world will go on thinking what they want to believe is true and dictatorial regimes with delusions of reestablishing their empires of old and dominating the world scene once again will continue to arm themselves to their teeth and when the real shooting starts, once again Europe will be caught unprepared. The problem is that this time unprepared will equal dead and conquered with many major cities having been turned into smoldering nuclear wastelands uninhabitable for the next twenty to ten-thousand years. The other reality is that the next major war will yield results by the end of two days and the war will be largely over after two days. Whatever nation starts the next conflagration will not survive the first day and will receive a doubling down the second day just for good measure. The countries initially targeted will be in one of two states. Those without adequate anti-missile technology will be the greatest losers with however many missiles sent targeting them will very likely strike their targets. The United States nuclear umbrella is largely a promise to provide a return strike on the culpable nation and not an anti-missile shield. The United States is not adequately protected from the track of Iranian missiles and would have to rely on strategically placed naval assets. Congress has not seen it necessary even to discuss closing the southern gap in the old Soviet Union and Chinese defensive grid which NORAD commands. Those anti-missile defenses are barely functional to intercept many of today’s Russian and Chinese fourth generation missiles and warheads. Add to this the southern gap which reaches in an arc from just north of Los Angeles across the entire southern United States and up the other coast to the central region of the Carolina’s (see map below). These systems protect Canada quite adequately but rely on less proven systems for detection of incoming missiles to cover the southern exposures. This was why both North Korea and Iran have practiced launching polar orbiting spacecraft which approach the United States from the south on numerous passes each day. The Chinese and Russians realized this weakness and had determined the launch angles. It is uncertain which power gave this information to North Korea or Iran.

There is one nation which is fairly well prepared if for no other reason than the absolute need and a constant state of threat facing her daily. That nation, of course, is Israel. Israel has developed a multi-stage intercept system where four separate systems each perform in their set range parameters providing maximal coverage. Also, Israel is not a United States, being merely the size of New Jersey, thus Israel can cover all her borders equally as every system can intercept missiles from all directions. Intercept systems placed in the northern Negev cover every border just as well as a system placed just east of Ben Gurion International Airport. The only system requiring strategic placement is the Iron Dome which is not designed for interception of ballistic missiles but for shorter range rockets and missiles and having a very short acquisition time. Still, even the vaunted Iron Dome which has proven its effectiveness with close to a 90% intercept rate when including not firing at systems determined not to be striking vital civilian areas and most likely to strike an open field. Not firing when unnecessary is an important feature as each missile interceptor costs approximately fifty-thousand dollars and are used against fifty dollar rockets. Of course, if it is your house and children who are saved by the Iron Dome, then we all agree that it is well worth the costs. But Israel has a layered series of longer ranged interceptors which include but are not limited to Arrow Systems I, II, and III as well as David’s Sling. Other systems are in the works and remain classified, as do some of the newest deployed systems still being tested. These make sleeping at night much easier. Still, the best deterrence against Iran using nuclear weapons as a threat or in actuality would be regime change and the installing of democratic based governance, the exact system the multitude of demonstrators are hoping they will be granted the opportunity to put in place and work from there. This is something which we might speak of when its coming to fruition is more likely as currently, with the Mullahs possessing all the firearms and the military still supporting them, the demonstrators have little chance for success. At best, they could end up facing a fate similar to that in which Syria is suffering with the Mullahs on one side, MEK (Mujahedeen Khalq) on the other, and the people with hopes separate from both caught in the middle. That would not be helpful or desirable. There would be little difference between the current regime in Iran and any system put in place by the MEK terrorists, as both are simply different forms of radical Islam. The Iranian people desire an opportunity to choose their leaders and have a constitution with a nation operating under laws, not men, and all deserve a system such as this and all too few are permitted to keep such.

Our Dysfunctional World

 

We were reading the news when two articles struck us as the definition of our dysfunctional world. One pertained to the United Nations and the other to Mahmoud Abbas and recent statements with both having ramifications for Israel. The one straight from the United Nations was not much of a shock or even a slight surprise. Israel has plans to destroy a squatter’s town which was built illegally, does not meet codes, and erected to prevent Israeli plans to build onto the city of Kfar Adumim, east of Jerusalem along Route 1. The United Nations demands that Israel cease and desist from plans to remove this blight, which has become to be called Khan al-Ahmar. There are currently approximately one-hundred-eighty Bedouins who recently took up residence after the area had been cleared for destruction. These Bedouins were requested to take up residence strictly to have opposition raised against the destruction such that this can become another fact on the ground allowing Palestinian Arab claims to Jerusalem to have additional validity.

 

Our second story referred to Mahmoud Abbas who recently stated in emphatic terms that the Palestinian Authority and the PLO will never cease the payments to their heroic martyrs and fighters in this war with Israel just as they will never cease until all of Palestine has been liberated and the Zionist Entity removed from their lands. He then went on to claim that the threat by Israel with a recent law which provides that a sum equal to the amount of cash paid to terrorists and their families for the murder of Israelis be deducted from the tax revenues Israel collects for the Palestinian Authority is a declaration of war made by Israel. Mahmoud Abbas has never been one to care much for the sublime nor about making mutually contradictory statements. Initially he claims that the Palestinian Arabs will never cease their fight, war, against Israel and then declares that Israel just started this war which they will never cease fighting as they have for the past few decades. Add this to the spokesperson for Abbas stated amongst other threats, “If the United States continues to act to change the rules regarding relations with the Palestinian leadership and our Palestinian people then the stagnation and political paralysis will continue.” Nabil Abu Rudeineh also stated, referring to Friday’s meeting in New York between United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres, United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, Jason Greenblatt and Jared Kushner; “The round of meetings that began in New York, whose purpose is to bring a meaningless plan, won’t achieve anything.”

 

Another link between these two articles is the fact that on one side you have United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres presumably attempting to assist moving the Trump presumed to be proposed “Deal of the Century” along while the United Nations is taking steps to condemn Israel for destroying illegal and subpar housing. We do not remember the United Nations ever demanding that Israel cease and desist from destroying twenty, thirty and even forty year old homes which were built with government approval and met all relevant codes for good and decent housing when the occupants were Jews. But as soon as the occupants are not Jews, then destroying even an illegal squatter’s shanty-town becomes an international offence. We wish we could call this anomaly to be an unexpected one but the United Nations bias and potentially classified hatred of everything Israel and Jewish and total love affair with that which harms Israel and provides additional claims by the Palestinian Arabs has a long history and will apparently never rest until they undo their fulfilling of Article 80 in their Charter and it has been undone and Israel fully removed. It would not surprise us should UNESCO declare this set of poorly built shacks a World Heritage Site claiming it depicts the Arab struggle against the genocidal Apartheid of the imperialist Israeli regime.

 

That idea highlights another slam against Israel which is so beyond ridiculous that we cannot see how anybody can make such a claim and keep a straight face. We refer to the incessant claims that Israel, using the IDF, is carrying out a war of extermination, a genocidal assault, or a complete annihilation of the Palestinian Arabs. Really? Then many go further and give a time-frame for these acts extending anywhere from the low end of a decade long attempt to a quarter of a century of destruction all the way up to seventy or even a hundred years put into this effort to solve the problem by removing one of the parties. Does anyone honestly believe that if Israel was attempting to wipe the Arabs residing within her borders, the Palestinian Arabs in Gaza and under the Palestinian Authority, that there would be a single Palestinian Arab left residing in these areas. Had Israel actually given such a preposterous and heinous criminal plan into effect a mere two weeks ago, there would not be a single Palestinian Arab still alive and residing between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, but instead there are just under five-million Palestinian Arabs reported residing either under Hamas in Gaza or under the Palestinian Authority in the Shomron. Yet the Palestinian Arab refugee camp of Yarmouk in Syria has been all but eradicated as it has suffered attacks initially by the rebel forces who took it causing some damage making a number of families homeless and killing perhaps fifty to one hundred Arabs followed by the Islamic State who destroyed a fair amount of the structures and murdered hundreds of Palestinian Arabs and lastly there have been several attacks from Syrian Dictator Bashir al-Assad including a poison gas attack, the use of barrel bombs, artillery shelling, saturation bombing, tank fire and helicopter gunship strafing and rocket launching killing thousands and rendering the entirety of the camp uninhabitable yet barely a comment from the United Nations, mild rebuke from the European Union and a basic shrug refusing to even meet over these assaults on Palestinian Arabs by the United Nations General Assembly or Human Rights Commission. We all know the reason, Israel was not committing these acts and Arab on Arab or even Iranian on Arab destruction and murder is not of any consequence as it does nothing to further the destruction of Israel and could actually make the Israelis appear benign by comparison.

Additionally, according to Mahmoud Abbas, President Trump has disqualified himself from being an impartial mediator for peace between the Palestinian Authority and Israel. Hamas has taken a slightly more flexible plan in that they might be willing to assume the authority to rule Palestine defined by the Pre-Six Day War lines. Hamas will accept such as it would allow them to replace the Palestinian Authority and take over the lands in the Shomron overlooking Tel Aviv and the heart of Israel. For Hamas, taking such a deal actually fulfills one of their hopes without needing another coup to take the areas under Abbas. The United States is not dealing with Hamas, fortunately. Both Hamas and PLO agree that any peace reached with Israel is merely the first step to the removal of the Zionist Imperialist Colonial Oppressor placed in the heart of the Middle East by the Europeans and America to destroy the Arab World and thereby establishing a Greater Israel. Yes, many of these Arabs believe this is the entirety of the ploy by the West to destroy Arab unity and turning them brother against brother. The Iran-Iraq War was a plot by the Zionists. The war in Syria is a plot by the Zionists. The Zionists control the United States. Basically, take any slur which history has used against the Jews from the Jews having too much power to the Jews wanting to rule the world to the Jews killed Muhammad and Yasser Arafat and replace Jew with Zionist and you have the basic beliefs of many Arabs responding to the propaganda they have been fed all their lives. It is simply another form, the Twenty-First Century form of anti-Semitism; it has morphed into anti-Zionism and anti-Israelism. This can be shown simply by listing here of the contemporary imprints of “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” and its use by countries in the world including the Middle East. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion has also led to bolstering the theory that Israel has devious plans to destroy the Arab Middle East in order to establish their dream of a Greater Israel. We debunked this claim in our article from earlier this week titled “How to Hate Israel” along with several other myths about Israel and Israelis.

 

The one constant in the world today, which leaves many an Israeli discouraged about the shape and directional track the world is on, is the constant beating upon Israel in attempts to destroy this exquisitely tiny nation. Here we have an image which replaces Israel with something of a comparable size, New Jersey, which in reality is slightly larger than Israel, placing it right in the middle of where Israel sits currently. Were one to glance at this image in a group of maps of the Middle East nations, they might just pass it over thinking that it looks correct despite the fact that the map included is of New Jersey, that is how close the two entities, New Jersey and Israel, honestly are. We want to point to this fact, as the one thing we have found that many unfamiliar with the actual smallness of Israel believe that Israel is one of the larger nations in the Middle East. We have heard things where people got the division of the British Mandate confused with the proposed and Arab rejected division in UNGA Res 181 leading to their claiming that Israel and Jordan were of equal size as the British Mandate was split evenly. The reality is that UNGA Res 181 split what is today Israel in half virtually evenly giving the Jewish partition to be over half pure desert as Israel received the near entirety of the Negev by that plan. The British Mandate was divided along the Jordan River with the river serving as the Israeli eastern border and the Jordanian western border, but this divide gave 78% to the Arabs as Jordan and a mere 22% to the Jews for Israel. It is that 22% which the world desires splitting once more giving the Arabs a total of the Mandate Lands of 89% and the Jews 11% of the Mandate. Another item people should know is that when Abbas states he merely desires his rightful 22%, he is not referring to Gaza plus the areas outside the Green Line, the Arab held regions before the Six Day War, he is referring to the 22% that constitutes Israel as he has included that he desires 22% of the British Mandate, not 22% of Israeli territory. Abbas insisting on 22% of the Mandate for Palestine, the other name for the British Mandate, infers all of Israel from the River to the Sea, another reference often used by Palestinian Arab supporters in their chant “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”

 

Ever since the 1917 Balfour Declaration and intensifying with each step taken along the way starting with the San Remo Conference right up to today as you read this article, the Arab desire has not changed, they still hope to genocidally conquer and clean the Zionist Entity and its Zionists off the face of the world. The Arab intentions were declared by Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League: “It will be a war of annihilation. It will be a momentous massacre in history that will be talked about like the massacres of the Mongols or the Crusades.”* As for who started this first of the Arab-Israeli Wars, allow us to quote Jamal Husseini who told the Security Council on April 16, 1948, “The representative of the Jewish Agency told us yesterday that they were not the attackers, that the Arabs had begun the fighting. We did not deny this. We told the whole world that we were going to fight.”** The build-up to the Six Day War was filled with propaganda and threats being broadcast over Egyptian television with President Nasser making the most noise and bluster. As an example, here are some quotes which are referenced here, “Our aim is the full restoration of the rights of the Palestinian people. In other words, we aim at the destruction of the State of Israel. The immediate aim: perfection of Arab military might. The national aim: the eradication of Israel.”*** “Our basic objective will be the destruction of Israel. The Arab people want to fight.”# “Under terms of the military agreement signed with Jordan, Jordanian artillery coordinated with the forces of Egypt and Syria is in a position to cut Israel in two at Kalkilya, where Israeli territory between the Jordan armistice line and the Mediterranean Sea is only twelve kilometers wide.”##

Allow us to close with these Cairo Radio Statements:

May 19, 1967: “This is our chance Arabs, to deal Israel a mortal blow of annihilation, to blot out its entire presence in our holy land”

May 22, 1967: “The Arab people is firmly resolved to wipe Israel off the map”

May 25, 1967: “The Gulf of Aqaba, by the dictum of history and the protection of our soldiers, is Arab, Arab, Arab.”

May 25, 1967: “Millions of Arabs are … preparing to blow up all of America’s interests, all of America’s installations, and your entire existence, America.”

May 27, 1967: “We challenge you, Eshkol, to try all your weapons. Put them to the test; they will spell Israel’s death and annihilation.”

May 30, 1967: “With the closing of the Gulf of Akaba, Israel is faced with two alternatives either of which will destroy it; it will either be strangled to death by the Arab military and economic boycott, or it will perish by the fire of the Arab forces encompassing it from the South from the North and from the East.”

May 30, 1967: “The world will know that the Arabs are girded for battle as the fateful hour approaches.”

How to Hate Israel

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 1:53 AM

Hating Israel can become difficult providing you look beyond the emotional outbursts. For those who simply dance to the conductor’s rhetoric and refuse to be curious, then hating Israel becomes simple; you just believe everything you are told and when told to jump, you simple ask how high. You do not need to ask what direction because you have practiced the jump and have it down to a ‘T’ after doing it at demonstration after demonstration. The problem is that many of the tropes told about Israel simply are false. That’s right, there are many lies told about Israel which dissolve with the slightest research. Probably the greatest lie about Israel is that the Zionists destroyed the nation of Palestine and ethnically cleansed the region and the refugees are the few who managed to escape the Jew caused carnage. The first problem is there has never in all of history been any nation anywhere called Palestine. There was a region named Syria-Palaestina which was a Roman province between 135 AD and about 390 AD. This had been the province of Judea which had been the southern kingdom that remained after King Solomon’s reign. When King Solomon died the Jewish kingdom of Israel split into two kingdoms. The northern kingdom remained named Israel as it contained ten of the tribes and the southern kingdom held the two tribes and took the name of the larger tribe, Judah. The northern kingdom was conquered by the Assyrians and they assimilated and were thought lost, thus the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. Judah was conquered later by the Babylonians. From there they were conquered by the Persians, the Greeks and the Romans. The Judeans overthrew the Greeks once only to be reconquered, overthrew the Romans three times only to be reconquered each time. After the third time the Romans dispersed the Jews, as the Judeans were now called as the Romans were too lazy to use their full name, sending them throughout their empire in the hopes that this would cause the Jews to be erased from history. The Romans had done this with the Carthaginians which is part of why we do have Carthaginians around now. After the third time the Jews were overthrew, the Romans also renamed Judea, calling it Syria-Palaestina as part of their erasure of the Jewish People. The British, after taking the area from the Ottoman Empire continued using the name for the region Palestine as the Ottomans kept the Roman name as had the Caliphate before them. People are often quite lazy and rather than redraw all the maps they simply keep the names. There was never a nation called Palestine or a people called Palestinians other than the early Jews. When the British referred to Palestinians, they were referring to the Jews. So, what did they call the Arabs who lived amongst the Jews? Well, they called them Arabs or Jordanians, Syrians, Yemenis, Saudis, Egyptians, Iraqis or even Turks. When did the Arabs become called Palestinians? We can give you the exact date for that as it is known. The Palestinian Liberation Organization, a product crafted jointly by the Arab League and the Soviet KGB, was brought into existence on May 28, 1964, with the presentation of the Palestinian National Covenant, which is a revisionist and combative anti-Zionist statement dedicated to the “restoration of the Palestinian homeland.” That was the day that the Arabs stopped being Arabs and no longer had their original national homes and became refugees of the imaginary former nations of Palestine and they immediately started to rewrite a revisionist history using the history of the Jewish People and replacing the Jews with Palestinians. In a frenzy of anti-Semitism, much of the world, especially Europeans and the Muslim world, took to this revisionist history as they wished to assist in the destruction of Israel as the return of the Jews to Israel fulfilled Judaism and the prophesies of their eventual return to their ancestral home. This was the story of the Dry Bones which Ezekiel had prophesied in the Bible. The return of the Jews to Israel also is a refutation of replacement theology which is practiced by numerous Christian mainline churches and by Muslims. That makes the Jews return to Israel a threat to these religions. If these churches can remove the Jewish nature of Israel, then all would be good again.

 

Then there is the cry that Israel is attempting to conquer all of the Middle East and establish what is called “Greater Israel” reaching from the Euphrates River to the Nile. This is wrong on its face because Greater Israel reached from the Euphrates River to the Wadi of Egypt (see map below), which was the border between Israel and Egypt in ancient times. There was a time when Greater Israel existed during the rule of King David and King Solomon which was actually a federation of smaller kingdoms which pledged loyalty to these Jewish Kings and paid taxes in exchange for protection from the kingdom of Israel. This was the empire which nobody ever taught about and it reached to the Euphrates River to the Wadi of Egypt as Egypt and Israel had fought a number of conflicts and no longer desired to war any further. Kingdoms of Kings David and Solomon existed from approximately 1050 BCE to 930 BCE. What was interesting about this period was that there were no wars in the known world of the time and it was not until the state of Israel broke into two kingdoms as related above, the northern kingdom remained Israel and the southern kingdom was Judea, named after the larger tribe. Then came the rise of the empires you read about in history, the Assyrians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Caliphate, Ottomans, Austria-Hungarian, Russian, Spanish, French, British and the others. These all were formed through war and remained at war until they ended and were not harmonious with each attempting to force the conquered to adopt their way of life and religions. Kings David and Solomon did not force Judaism on any of the vassal states but allowed them to continue to worship their gods, be they stone idols, golden idols, great being who lived atop a distant mountain or whatever beliefs they held. Like today, King David and King Solomon basically conquered to the borders of the original lands and after that, they assisted allies to defeat their rivals incorporating them into the areas under their protection.

Today Israelis have a far less demanding desire, we just desire to be granted the lands we were promised. Under the original design, Israel was supposed to be formed in the area which today makes up all of Israel, Gaza, Shomron and Jordan, the entire British Mandate. The British remembered their promises to the Arabs and reached an accord with the Zionist Congress which divided the British Mandate along the Jordan River. The eastern 78% was to become the Arab land which today is known as Jordan and the remaining 22% was to be the Jewish State of Israel (see map below). This started with the San Remo Conference and the Treaty of Serves to the Mandate System which was approved unanimously by the League of Nations and then adopted by the United Nations as Article 80 in their Charter. This is the entirety of the story until the world decided that the Jews were being granted too much land and they might actually be capable of defending their borders. This led to the proposal from the United Nations General Assembly of Resolution 181 on November 29, 1947. This divided the western 22% of the British Mandate in half again with much of Israel being the Negev Desert. Since this was a General Assembly Resolution, it would only be applicable if all sides involved accepted the terms. The Zionist Congress and initial Israeli government which were being formed agreed to the plan but the Arab League refused to accept the plan. Why did they do such a thing when they could have had their presumed desire, Palestine in half the land. Well, that is easy, they refused because the Jews still would have their land and Jews can never be permitted to rule themselves, they must be subservient to Islam and the Muslims who practice Islam. This was why on the morning that Israel came into existence, with the borders from above as Resolution 181 was refused by the Arab League thus making it voided and no longer even a plan, there were six Arab armies which invaded Israel in what they termed a genocidal slaughter, as the Arab League’s Secretary-General Azzam Pasha was quoted when asked for his estimate of the size of the Jewish forces, Azzam Pasha waved his hands and said: “It does not matter how many there are. We will sweep them into the sea.” Azzam Pasha was later quoted claiming, “I personally wish that the Jews do not drive us to this war, as this will be a war of extermination and a momentous massacre which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacres and the Crusades.” One need remember that the Arabs attacked on the morning of May 15, 1948, the morning of Israel coming into existence while some Arab forces attacked Jewish communities starting the day after the United Nations Resolution back on November 29, 1947. Meanwhile, as far as the United States aiding Israel, history tells that United States Undersecretary of State Robert Lovett argued, “Obviously, the Arabs might use arms of United States origin against Jews, or Jews might use them against Arabs.” Consequently, on December 5, 1947, the U.S. imposed an arms embargo on the region. The United States would not adopt aiding Israel until after Israel won the Six Day War in June of 1967 when President Lyndon Baines Johnson took note of the Israeli success and decided that maybe they would make for a strong ally. Yes, the United States took to Israel in value of Israeli strength and the fear that the about to be produced Lavi fighter jet would be a competitor for the American F-16 and thus they gave Israel a grand bargain if Israel would not make fighter aircraft, but that is another story.

The argument that Israel forced the Palestinian Arab refugees from their homes is the next fabrication. The Mufti of Jerusalem and the Arab Armies’ Commanders told the Arabs to leave their homes so that the invading armies could simply murder everybody they found as they swept to the sea and the Jews fell before them. The majority of the refugees came to be from these Arabs who left as they were promised they could have the spoils from the Jews once the Jews were eradicated. The only thing they did not believe was possible that Jews could defeat the forces fighting with Allah. The Jews won the war by not being slaughtered to the last but lost the Shomron and Gaza with Egypt taking Gaza and Jordan actually annexing the Shomron renaming it West Bank. There were some Arabs forced from Israel during the war but the majority of these were from villages which assisted the fighters or were attacking the Israeli forces behind the front lines. There was a percentage which was evicted for tactical means such as when the Jewish forces were making their way into Jerusalem in the last moments so as not to completely lose this precious city, the crown of Israel. These refugees have been kept in camps outside of Israel to be used to conquer Israel with the Right of Return, a phrase also taken from the Jewish story. What the world had forgotten is the Arab world forcing almost every last Jew from their lands. These Jewish refugees were thrown from their homes and penniless and as no nation was taking them in unless they had relatives, and then only if their relatives took legal financial responsibility for these refugees. Thus, they mostly ended up in the one nation who took them with open arms, Israel. These almost million Jewish refugees were accepted and immediately merged into Israeli society and were not left as refugees. They are now many of our leaders and innovators, not perpetual refugees. The Arab refugees are also the only refugees in the world who pass their status to their children generation after generation and were given their own agency, UNRWA.

 

Many of the things Israel is accused of are straight-forward anti-Semitism in a new package. The claim Israel controls the United States Congress is the old canard that the Jews manipulate governments of the world. The claim that the Jews of the world support Israel more than they do their own country is simply ridiculous, especially when often some of the speakers at such rallies are Jews who wish Israel were not Jewish or even did not exist at all. There are claims that the mainstream media refuses to criticize Israel as they control the media or own the media. This is another old canard against the Jews. What has happened is that many of the old anti-Semitic tropes have been adopted replacing Jews with Israel and slight wording changes to accompany the new noun. If you were to listen to much of what the speakers claim, they are forms of the above or claims that the Jews took over an Arab nation which never existed, Palestine. Then they will claim that Israel is an Apartheid nation despite having had Arabs in the Supreme Court and an Arab Party with representatives in the Knesset, the parliament, Arab doctors, nurses, managers, scientists, teachers, police, politicians and in every walk of life. Arabs have all the rights any Israeli has and have full citizenship in Israel. These Arabs are the actual or children and grandchildren of the original Arabs who decided not to leave when the Arabs demanded they leave, some even fought with the Jews to defend Israel in 1948 and some are in the IDF including officers and pilots. Then there is our favorite, that the Jews have not permitted the Palestinians from having an election since 2005. Israel does not rule the Palestinian Arabs about who this claim is made. The Palestinian Arabs under the Palestinian Authority have their own leader, Mahmoud Abbas, and their own parliament. The Gazans are ruled in a dictatorship run by Hamas and Islamic Jihad and in a dictatorship one does not get to vote, but Israel has no say in that side either. The Palestinians have not had elections because their rulers do not want elections because they are getting wealthier than one can imagine off stealing aid money coming from the anti-Israel forces. These include the United Nations and European Union at the top of the list. Look into what we have written here on your own and you may be surprised. The research you do, please share it with others you know who are against Israel, please.
