Dear President Trump, Please Understand These Facts

 

President Trump, please read some history and agreements, which defined the entire creation of Israel. Once you understand the history, then you will understand that Israel has had so much already stolen that to take more would be literally criminal. The first place you should start is with the San Remo Conference. This was the first international conference to discuss further the concepts and promises made by the Balfour Declaration, something we assume; hopefully not wrongly, you already are familiar with forward and backward. Just in case you are not familiar with this document, you can use the link here. At San Remo, the world made their initial commitment. This was followed by the Treaty of Sèvres where further discussions were held and the Mandate System finalized. This was finalized in the League of Nations who gave the British the Mandate over what became Jordan and Israel. Read these and it will confirm the gist of our summary which follows.

 

The British were granted lands in which to establish the Jewish State. They took the liberty of deciding that they were not required to establish the Jewish homelands in all of the territory and instead decided they would make an Arab homeland as well. The British decided to divide the lands evenly by British standards. Their idea of evenly was to divide the lands down the Jordan River and straight south from the Dead Sea. They took the slightly larger part, 78% of the Mandate, and formed Transjordan, which later became simply Jordan, and gifted the lands to the Hashemites whom they owed favor from World War I. They further decided that the Jews were not prepared to have their own state, so the British continued to rule the lands west of the Jordan, the 22% they promised would never be divided further when they took most of the lands to form the Arab state of Jordan. The Arabs rioted often and as long as they targeted the Jews, the British watched on and when they started to approach the British they would fire a single shot and the Arabs would disperse. The British, the ones who promised the lands would never be further divided, did actually try to keep their word as well as prevent the forming of the State of Israel when they voted against United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 (UNGA Res 181), which passed easily laying out dividing the 22% of land left into another Arab state and a Jewish state with the better lands given the Arabs and the Negev Desert making up over 50% of the Jewish State. The Arab League rejected this agreement thus, as one of the legal party, voiding the entirety of UNGA Res 181 and negating the proposed boundaries. This negation returned everything to the conditions before the proposal of UNGA Res 181, meaning the British promise that all the lands west of the Jordan River were designated for the Jewish state. That was the situation legally on the morning of May 15, 1948, or the evening before which was the start of the 5th of Iyyar, 5708. When Israel declared her independence on the evening of 5th of Iyyar, 5708, her borders were exactly what the British had promised in exchange for the theft of 78% of the Mandate to gift the Arabs another nation. That morning began what is euphemistically called the Israeli War of Independence. A more accurate title would have been the Israeli War for Survival. Six Arab armies from the nations of Jordan, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia along with the Arab League Militias led by the Mufti of Jerusalem and World War II Nazi ally Mohammed Amin al-Husseini (محمد أمين الحسيني‎ Arabic) as well as detachments from Algeria, Pakistan, Sudan and Yemen attacked Israel from every border the morning she came into existence. There were additional forces usually simply referred to as irregulars some of which represented the Muslim Brotherhood and components of the Arab League as well as other terror and Islamist organizations and groups. This was how Gaza was occupied by Egypt and Judea and Samaria partially occupied by Jordan, an area they renamed West Bank to remove the Jewish designations and honestly known as the Shomron by Jews and Israel.

 

The Arabs have their state and it is Jordan. These occupied areas were liberated in the defensive wars of 1967 (Six Day War) and 1973 (Yom Kippur War). Israel successfully defended her lands in these conflicts. Since then Israel returned the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt when they made peace. This satisfied the requirement in United Nations Security Resolution 242 (UNSC Res 242) which was adopted unanimously by the UN Security Council on November 22, 1967, in the aftermath of the Six-Day War. It was adopted under Chapter VI of the UN Charter. The requirement was that despite Israel wining a defensive war brought on despite repeated cries for the Arabs to reconsider while the world sat silently waiting for Israel to be destroyed, for Israel to return part of the lands gained, not all of the lands. Israel survived and thrived but, unlike normal nations, was not permitted to retain the spoils of a defensive war in order to prevent further wars. Israel was demanded to return lands, not the lands or all lands, simply lands while establishing for themselves “Secure and Recognized Borders.” Once Israel had returned the Sinai Peninsula, she had satisfied the demand for the return of land. Israel annexation of the Golan Heights was done to establish “Secure and Recognized Borders.” Since the Shomron was initially part of Israel until the illegal occupation by Jordan, there should be no problem, but the world cannot allow Israel to live in peace. Instead, there came the invention of the Arab Palestinians who were established by the PLO, Arafat, the KGB and the Arab League in June of 1964 with the inauguration of the PLO terror group. The plan was to use the history of the Jewish People against Israel by adapting it, with a few flourishes, replacing the Jewish People and Israelites with the pretend Arab Palestinian entity. One prime example of a flourish is the claim they inhabited the land with the Canaanites for nine-thousand years and furthermore, Abbas also claimed that the fictitious “Canaanite-Palestinians” were the creators of the modern-day alphabet six-thousand years ago (watch video below), a thousand years before any modern written language has been recognized by anthropology studies of ancient civilizations. The Shomron is an integral part of Jewish and Israelite history and the heartlands of Israel. This is history and verified by historical records. But the levels of deceit which is beyond those attempting to destroy Israel by any means and no matter the cost to civilization has never been reached, there is no limit to their perfidy and lies.

 

 

There is a simple set of maps that prove what is and is not belonging to Israel. Below is a map of the original Twelve Tribes and the lands they ruled which spanned both sides of the Jordan River. The Promised Lands were those west of the Jordan River but with the assistance of Moses intervening to permit tribes to remain in lands east of the river where they found good grazing lands for their cattle, they were permitted these lands providing they were the point of the spear leading the other tribes into battle to take the Promised Lands, and then they could return to these lands. They built shelters for their families, fences for their cattle and led the other tribes in the taking of the lands and vanquishing completely the Canaanite tribes. The other side depicts the initial lands promised and becoming the land of Israel upon her declaration of independence in red on the right with the extended Davidic-Solomon Empire in yellow, which came after the defeat of the Phoenicians and Philistines by King David and King Solomon. The Hebrew Empire reached from the Euphrates River in what is today northern Syria near the Iraqi border through to the southern edge of the Negev where it meets the Sinai Peninsula and the Egyptian border then, just beyond where it exists today. Israel is not requesting those lands they initially inhabited though the initial British Mandate, which had been intended to give the Jews the lands as, estimated to match their initial lands. Unfortunately, the religiously guided and writers of the Balfour Declaration and San Remo Conference and other related treaties and papers following World War I were not the men it was decided should enact what they dreamed. The people who were tasked with the implementation of the British Mandate were more beholden to the promises the British had lavished upon numerous Arab families during the war and left the crumbs of what was considered worthless land, the prime real estate east of the Jordan River had been reserved for their Arab friends the Hashemites, so leaving the rock strewn hills, swampy lowlands and southern desert lands to the Jews, areas that had been tried and refused to provide succor to those who resided thereupon, allowing for a few subsistence farmers and a shepherd or two per hundred miles with the slimmest of herds to survive along with a paltry number of residents to remain and live in Jerusalem, Hevron, Shechem, Tiberius, Caesarea and Akko; all but Akko consisted of predominantly Jewish and Christian residents.

 

Left side map depicts the division of the Promised Land amongst the tribes and right side map compares the modern promised land from the Jordan west to the Mediterranean Sea compared to the maximum of area during King David’s and King Solomon’s reigns.

 

The demands of the world have been more than satisfied. The map below is what, as things now stand, should be the final and definitive map of the modern state of Israel. This map includes the Golan Heights, the lands west of the Jordan River; border Lebanon along the internationally recognized Blue Line as confirmed by the United Nations, borders Egypt along their agreed upon and recognized border between the Sinai Peninsula and the Negev Desert, and the Mediterranean Sea to the west. It should be noticed that Gaza is not included as part of Israel though, according to the agreements from after World War I, these lands were included within Israel. The reason for this is Israel released all claims to Gaza turning it over to the rule of the Palestinian Authority in August of 2005 and by early September the final withdrawal of the last IDF forces was complete. Israel no longer controls, occupies or otherwise has any claim having surrendered Gaza to the Palestinian Authority. Subsequently, the Palestinian Authority lost their rule and control over Gaza to Hamas in a bloody coup in 2007. Since then Gaza has been ruled by Hamas with Israel only invading when it became necessary to respond to excessive assaults and rocket fire by Hamas targeting Israeli civilians. These attacks were initially limited to the southernmost residents in Israel but over time and with assistance from Iran, the ranges of these projectiles has greatly increased and will soon be capable of threatening all of Israel. The last war with Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the terrorist masters of Gaza, they targeted the suburbs of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, the next war it may well be Haifa. Israel cannot surrender any further lands as to do so would be suicide. That is the truth. If there is to be a deal, it should be to permit those Arabs desiring to relocate to do so without facing death threats from the Palestinian Authority or from Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Israel would offer top price for their properties and possibly a bonus might be offered. The same offer should be given to the Arabs residing within Israel as well and in Gaza. This would reduce the overcrowding that always appears to explain why Hamas must fire their rockets from School tops and the roofs of clinics and apartment houses. These would be the closest Israel can expect and could be made into “Secure and Recognized Borders.” Israel did surrender the Sinai Peninsula and Gaza, no more can or should be asked of her. The United Nations demanded Israel surrender lands, not all the lands or even the lands, and Israel has met this standard and now need to be left to her own safe boundaries.

President Trump, you claim not to be a politician and to be the one to bring a new age to Washington. Your claim is to drain the swamp and follow your own path ignoring the ‘Deep State’ as part of your cleaning of the mess the United States faces. As you may have already seen, the State Department is probably the most infected of your departments when it comes to people with their own policies and the desire to implement them whether the President agrees with them or not. The problems you had with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson were not completely of his making, though he was the perfect fit for the State Department. Allow us to give you a little history on the State Department. The State Department advised President George Washington, President John Adams and President Thomas Jefferson to pay the tribute to the Barbary Pirates. Eventually, President Jefferson, a noninterventionist if ever there was one, to intervene and fight the Barbary Pirates instead of paying the ever-increasing tribute. The State Department backed the Soviets and Communism while now they back the Arabs, as they are Arabists, just like Rex Tillerson is. You have already shown more backbone than other Presidents, as you kept your promise to recognize the true and eternal capital of Israel, Jerusalem. This was the act of a businessman, keeping his word, and not the act of a politician, whose words are usually worthless when they become uncomfortable or difficult. Do not suddenly become a politician, though becoming another member of the swamp would be the easiest path for you, stand for what you know is correct from what you learned back in Sunday School and any Bible reading you have done since. It is time to uphold the promises which the United States also singed onto under the Anglo American Treaty of 1924 which made the United States a signatory in the Mandate System and an enforcer of the British Mandate as well as the others made by the League of Nations. Imagine that, a President actually enforcing a treaty that was ratified by the Senate February 20, 1925. If you are half the businessman you claim to be, then you know that your position requires you to fulfill all actions to as demanded by the Constitution. A treaty ratified by the Senate is, under the Constitution, the law of the land and as such must be upheld by the President. Uphold the treaty and permit Israel some strategic depth, which required all of the lands west of the Jordan River as promised by the British Crown and signed onto by the United States under the Anglo American Treaty of 1924. Doing so will guarantee you a great Presidency which will be considered amongst the greatest in the history books. Remember the promise from Hashem from Genesis 12:3 where it states, “And I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse.” The choice stands before you, which way will you choose.

Why the World Concentrates on Israel

 

We will limit this discussion to the modern Israel leaving out the three-thousand plus years since Avraham, the forefather of the Jewish People who are descended from the Hebrews who were brought out of Egypt with Moses. Zionism has much to do with the rebirth of Israel and where as the Zionist Movement was something new, Zionism defined as the desire by the Jewish People to return to their native homelands as defined in Tanach, the Torah, as the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, has existed from when Joseph was taken to Egypt until Moses led the people to the Promised Land and again from the start of the Babylonian Exile until Cyrus the Great permitted the Jewish People to return and rebuild the Temple and again starting with the Roman dispersions, the first dispersion around the year 70 A.D. and the second dispersion around the year 130 A.D. causing the Jews to become the Diaspora. Modern Zionism was driven by a long held desire for Hashem to do again what he had already done twice in the history of the Jewish People, send a savior. The first savior was well known, Moses, the man who also gave the Jews their law, the Ten Commandments and the entire Torah. The second savior came from an unexpected place, a conqueror who vanquished the Babylonian Empire bringing in its place the Persian Empire; yet Cyrus saw to allow the Jews to run their lives as an autonomous region for as long as they paid their tribute. Then for century after century which became millennia, almost two millennia and still no savior.

 

Then the idea came and was championed by a few very strong and determined individuals. For a list of these impassioned men and women one can go here. They wrote, petitioned, bargained and finally found a great ally in Lord Balfour, the British Foreign Secretary and author of the Balfour Declaration. This came after World War I as part of a great reestablishing of indigenous rights and a redrawing of the maps of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa would come the San Remo Conference, the Treaty of Sèvres, the Versailles Treaty and the Mandate System. Part of this resulted in the defining once again of a Jewish homeland between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. The League of Nations placed the name of that world body behind the Mandate System and this was further endorsed as enforceable by the United Nations which recognized it as still valid in Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. Finally, on May 15, 1948 the nation of Israel was declared and came into being. Within hours, Arab armies of six nations and several militias attacked the new nation of Israel pouring over every border. Nearly two years later an Armistice was signed with the expressed insistence by the Arab parties that none of the lines drawn could ever be used to define any border with Israel, their idea. The Jewish People lost Gaza to Egypt as well as Judea and Samaria to Jordan. When peace was reached with Egypt, they relinquished their possession of Gaza and when peace was reached with Jordan, they relinquished any claims to what they renamed the West Bank, the original Judea and Samaria.

 

The world had a slow change of heart concerning the Jewish State which steadily attempted to assure there were always more Arabs than Jews in the lands designated to become Israel, something which prevented the Jews being murdered by the Nazis from having anyplace to which to run. There was a connection between the Holocaust and the founding of Israel, but it was never a direct connection. The connection was simply that the Europeans and the allied powers from World War II were so shocked and filled with guilt by the horrifying findings in the concentration camps that they were silenced and anti-Semitism took a brief holiday. There were claims made by hopeful and overly optimistic Jews and Christians alike that the horrors of the concentration camps would vanquish anti-Semitism permanently. Unfortunately, that was not the case, as anti-Semitism was never even dented by the events of World War II in the Islamic world. That anti-Semitism of the Islamic world, specifically the Arab and the Persian Islamic worlds, the hearts of the Shiite and Sunni Islamic centers in the world has grown through several defeats as they smashed into Israel in attempts to destroy what they consider the accursed Zionist entity which has stolen Islamic lands, what they call an Islamic Waqf, a holy defined area which having once belonged to Islam must never be permitted to leave the domains of Islam. Spain shares this curse, as it was once Andalusia and a part of the Caliphate. The same is true of the Balkans and certain regions of China, India, Russia and the Philippines as they were once a part of the Islamic conquests.

 

The British never lost their anti-Semitism and as the holders of the Mandate attempted to prevent Israel from ever coming into existence through forcing Arabs to be relocated into the area which was to be Israel preventing any Jewish majority. But between Arabs revolting against British rule and the Jews revolting against British rule, the British decided that enough was enough, satisfied that once they had left the Arabs would solve their Jewish problem and deny the Jews ever successfully making their nation. There were even British working assisting the Arab forces. What was somewhat astonishing were the Nazis working together with the Arabs to erase the Jewish State. The desire to bring an end to the State of Israel has grown in Europe since day one and now reached a point where the European Union is building substandard communities with improper plumbing, limited water, no waste management and all in a concerted effort to deny the Jews the lands promised them by international law. Any claim that the Jewish State and the Jewish People do not have clear and complete claim to the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea are lies used to attempt to bring down and destroy the Jewish State.

 

Military experts have all agreed that should Israel be forced from Judea and Samaria that the nation will become indefensible and that it will mean that the Jews will be forced from the central area including Tel Aviv, as rockets will be able to be poured down with directly observable adjustment of trajectories making the entire area uninhabitable. This will cut the nation into halves which will be able to be defeated easily. Further, all of the Israeli airports, civilian and military will be within easy range for artillery should the lands of Judea and Samaria, also known as the West Bank, be turned over to Arab Palestinians. Further, once Iran or any other hostile Arab country acquires nuclear weapons, then Israel will be facing threat of nuclear annihilation should they respond to such Arab attacks from these lands militarily. Only having the entirety of the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea can Israel use the Jordan Valley (see image below) as a defensive barrier against land attack and make direct threat to the population sufficiently difficult that any nations attempting such would be in obvious violation of Israeli borders and thus having committed an act of war by all definitions.

Israel today is facing two opposing movements throughout the world. What is truly astonishing is that these opposing forces exist in numerous nations. The developed world is very interested in the Israeli hi-tech sector and the discoveries and inventions of what is known as Start-Up Nation. Medical institutions and physicians worldwide depend on Israeli breakthroughs, surgical techniques, breakthrough drugs and other medical advances. In Africa, a number of communities are dependent upon Israeli technologies for their clean water and agricultural developments and techniques for increased crop yields not to mention the medical assistance Israel provides. Everywhere on the globe willing to accept Israeli assistance, whenever there are natural or unnatural disasters such as earthquake, volcano, tornado, typhoon, nuclear meltdown or anything you care to name, the Israeli IDF dispatch units who are often specialists trained for the difficulties faced on the ground as well as specialists for those special cases. Yet, in some of these very nations are governments who in the United Nations support any and every denunciations of Israel whenever the opportunity presents itself. In people I believe some would call it schizophrenia, with nations it is called diplomacy. On one hand, they benefit from many things which Israel does and then they condemn Israel for whatever she does or does not do or those items which she is accused of and despite all knowing her innocence, she is condemned just because they can condemn her. We attempted to talk about an idea whose time will come; it is just a matter of when. If only the world would leave Israel alone and allow her, unmolested, to finally make real peace and find a means for allowing the Arabs within her legal borders a choice; semi autonomy, relocation to their former home country or other nation willing to absorb them with a healthy relocation bonus provided to assist their futures in return for their not returning to Israel ever, or another yet undiscovered solution which can never be found as long as the world breathlessly constantly attempts to use the Arab world to destroy the Jewish state calling it the peace process. We only care to place one last item before you for consideration; why is it a requirement for the United Nations Human Rights Council to condemn Israel for any reason either general or specific as a permanent part of their meeting itinerary, their permanent schedule. It has reached such a twisted point that Nikki Haley says United States may leave UN Human Rights Council over ‘anti-Israel bias’ which would only serve as a useless gesture.

 

A greater resolve would lead to the disbanding of what has become a less than perfect tool obsessed with destroying the Jewish state and being utilized as a tool for the anti-Semites disguised as anti-Zionists of the world, and they are Legion. Why is the world so obsessed with Israel and destroying the Jewish state and then the Jewish People if permitted the opportunity. There is one thing which makes all these efforts possibly futile, and it is what has allowed Israel to survive as they did against all odds in 1948 and again in 1967 and 1973 and continued to survive ever since. How was it that Israel was predicted in the Old Testament, Isaiah 66:7-8, to become a nation in a single day. Below are the words in context where they speak of things but in verse eight, it tells of Israel being reborn in a single day in almost straightforward language. The prophet Isaiah lived 740-681 B.C.E. which was over two and a half millennia ago and stated a reality which became true on May 15, 1948, how could one doubt that Israel will be protected as promised as well, that this is the final and permanent return of the Jewish People to their homeland promised to Avraham, Isaac and Yaakov? Israel can be the greatest gift and benefit to all of mankind as Hashem promised, she just requires she be given the opportunity. Israel desires not more land than what was promised to Avraham, the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, no more and no less. Give Israel a chance and she will produce for humanity as she promised. She is largely responsible for much of cell phone technology, security software and medical and science breakthroughs and if these do not grab your attention, then remember that Israel gave the world cherry tomatoes.

 

5. Hearken to the word of the Lord, who quake at His word, “Your brethren who hate you, who cast you out, said, “For the sake of my name, the Lord shall be glorified,” but we will see your joy, and they shall be ashamed.
6. There is a sound of stirring from the city, a sound from the Temple, the voice of the Lord, recompensing His enemies.
7. When she has not yet travailed, she has given birth; when the pang has not yet come to her, she has been delivered of a male child.
8. Who heard [anything] like this? Who saw [anything] like these? Is a land born in one day? Is a nation born at once, that Zion both experienced birth pangs and bore her children?
9. “Will I bring to the birth stool and not cause to give birth?” says the Lord. “Am I not He who causes to give birth, now should I shut the womb?” says your God.
10. Rejoice with Jerusalem and exult in her all those who love her: rejoice with her a rejoicing, all who mourn over her.

But It Has a Happy Ending

 

Unfortunately, the beginnings are an intentional affront and a threat to Israel’s existence completely financed by Europe and numerous clandestine groups and Arab nations who prefer not to be identified. It all started quite a number of years ago when Israel had yet to be formed. The British were holding the Mandate to form the Jewish State. Their first step towards making that concept disappear was to take 78% of that area and make an Arab Palestinian State called Transjordan, today known as Jordan. This was insufficient, so while the Jews in Europe really could have used a place in which to run, the British held the number permitted in to theoretically 75,000 Jews per year. They let in only a fraction of this number throughout World War II while bringing in around 100,000 Arabs each year even if they had to be paid. The British knew that as long as there were more Arabs than Jews that Israel, the Jewish State, could never be formed. Eventually Israel was formed largely made possible by Jews running the British blockade after World War II ended. The really disgusting thing was after the war many Jews when returning to their homes found their home lived in by another family, always Christians, their business run by some Christians, and their neighbors just as likely to run them out of town roughly as they were to murdering them. Jews learned they no longer had a place in Europe. This was made perfectly clear in this incident which is one of many similar incidents most of which were covered up and never made it into written history as there were no Jewish survivors to tell the story, but they became known as warnings to Jews that returning home was not necessarily a good idea after surviving the Concentrations Camps or hiding out the entire ordeal.

 

The next bold statement of Jews refusing to allow their own defeat came in the form of the miracle of their surviving the six national armies attack on the morning of Israel’s birth. This was after the Arab League had turned down the United Nations partition offered in General Assembly Resolution 181. Once the Arab League refused the division, the entire resolution became null and void and could not be used as a binding document at any future time. General Assembly Resolutions are suggestive in nature and unless both sides agree, they have no further weight. The Zionist Congress and Israelis government agreed to the division, as anything was preferable to a war in which they would begin with no formal armed forces. They patched their groups which had fought the British occupation into a fighting force which only by the grace of Hashem managed to retain any land. Israel lost lands as Gaza and Judea and Samaria (West Bank) were lost to Egypt and Jordan respectively (see maps below).

The next act of audacity was for Israel to win the Six Day War , liberating Gaza and the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) while gaining the Golan Heights and Sinai Peninsula and then to follow that by surviving the initial attacks and then proving victorious in the Yom Kippur War and even threaten Cairo. That was until the United States, under the auspices of the Department of State, threatened Israel with military forces under United States command and the backing of the United Nations and the world at large if Israel did not halt all advances towards Cairo, Alexandria and Damascus and return to the armistice lines remaining from the Six Day War which were the starting point of that war. When Israel made peace with Egypt they offered to return all of the Sinai Peninsula as well as Gaza but Egypt declined to reapply their occupation of Gaza and returned these lands to Israel along with the large Arab Muslim population. Later when Israel made her peace with Jordan, they declined to reoccupy Judea and Samaria and returned them to Israel but left their citizens they had forced to move into the area while they occupied it giving their poorest citizens the Jews former homes and properties. Jordan also had destroyed Synagogues and desecrated Jewish cemeteries.

 

Israel having offered to return the occupied lands which Egypt and Jordan had occupied and returned to Israeli control was probably the beginning of another plan to dissolve Israel in a sea of Arabs who would take over the nation democratically, but Israel did not simply grant these Arabs left from Egypt and Jordan into her citizenry thus were not overrun by Arab voters. This likely led to the concept which was the real beginnings which came in September of 1993 and had a large amount of assistance from European nations, the United States State Department (again), and some rose colored glasses wearing extreme leftists who believed that if Yasser Arafat were granted respectability, then he could be given a Palestinian Arab nation, then a peace could be made which would assist in ending the stand-off between the Israelis and the Arab World, this was called the Oslo Accords. The Europeans and State Department saw this agreement slightly differently as they were targeting Israel for extermination, the nation and if that included the Jews living there, well, they could live with that as well. Now we get to go through a number of ill-thought-out choices by the leadership of Israel, more often than not under duress or leftist leadership which may have you doubting the intelligence of those who desired the path we have taken.

 

After the idea that Yasser Arafat was willing and desired to make peace should have been completely demolished after the Paris accords where he agreed that should Israel meet a set of terms which were far beyond anything Israel had ever even approached conceding which included East Jerusalem and borders based strongly with the 1949 Armistice Lines, the Green Line and President Clinton felt good about taking this to Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak. Arafat was secure in the thought that there would be absolutely no way on earth that Israel would accept borders along most of the Green Line as well as giving back the Old City, Temple Mount and all of East Jerusalem. President William Jefferson Clinton must have felt wonderful as he went to sleep that night knowing he had just settled the Israel-Palestinian Arab conflict as both sides had agreed to the deal. Yasser Arafat went to bed very nervous as President Clinton had not come back with any counter proposal which Arafat could turn down, repeat his demands safe in the knowledge that the Israelis would never give away Jerusalem, let alone the borders resembling the Green Line with over ninety percent of the Green Line being the future border and even the Jordan Valley along the west side of the Jordan River, a natural defensive position. Rumor has it that Arafat ordered his driver to be ready from 6:00 AM on and his plane to be ready for immediate takeoff along the same timeline. He suspected and feared the worst thing possible, that the Israelis had agreed to his demands. Well, President Clinton showed up for the meetings that morning confident that peace was at hand, Prime Minister Barak showed up for the meetings that morning confident that peace was at hand and Yasser Arafat showed up for that morning’s meetings with his bags in the limousine and the driver ready and when he heard Secretary of State Madeline Albright ask who was to sign the agreement, which she was holding copies of in her hands, first, Arafat bolted from his chair for the exit. Secretary of State Albright tried as best she could to catch the fleeing Arafat but simply resulted in her standing at the top of the steps waving papers as Yasser Arafat drove off towards the airport. Later, it was revealed that the Second Intifada had been planned before the negotiations had even commenced and Yasser Arafat never intended to negotiate in good faith but was instead ready to launch yet another offensive intended to drive the Israelis from their lands fleeing in stark terror before the waves of suicide bombings.

 

But the surrender by Israel really began at the end of the Six Day War when Minister of Defense suggested that the Jordanian Waqf be permitted to return and be left to take over running the Temple Mount just as they had done before the war as a sign of good faith. Initially, the Temple Mount was open for visitors who could use any entrance to visit the holy site. That was the initial status-quo but did not remain that way as slowly the Waqf moved to prevent all people other than Muslims to be all but banned from entering the Temple Mount except for limited times each day at the whim of the Waqf who can close the site whenever they choose. They also provide guards who will order any person suspected of prayer or anything which might be deemed unacceptable to Muslim supremacy be removed and possibly arrested for such acts of offense. The entire situation has followed along a parallel path as well. Within half a dozen years of the Arafat debacle in Paris a new idea cropped up coming from Secretary of State (it had to be the State Department again) Condoleezza Rice, who was reported to have privately pointed out the obvious parallels with the black experience in the Antebellum South and the treatment of the Palestinian Arabs, and backed by George W. Bush, who was presumed to be one of Israel’s greatest allies to hold the office of President, that Israel turn complete control and allow the formation of an Arab state in Gaza as an opportunity for the Palestinian Authority to prove their ability to live peacefully and run an actual political entity. In August of 2005 Israel, with great emotional angst and a divided population tearing the nation apart, pulled all of their people, military and all institutions out of Gaza and an American Jewish group paid to leave the greenhouses in Gaza and in working order so as to allow for a basic economy to exist. The greenhouses were torn apart and used to make rockets and launchers and within two years, Hamas had taken complete control over Gaza evicting the Palestinian authority in a coup. Since then Israel has been forced into three wars to end rockets raining down on Israeli civilians with each round Hamas and Islamic Jihad proving to have rockets of greater and greater range with their latest capable of reaching Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and closing in on reaching Haifa. There has been proof that Iran had assisted Hamas off and on giving them greater rocket engine technology and also assisting Islamic Jihad and there have been rumors of IRGC advisors smuggled into Gaza with even greater technologies and training. Needless to point out, the Gaza experiment was nothing short of a complete and unmitigated disaster.

 

Over the years whenever the Western nations, read the Europeans and the Americans, particularly the State Department, have demanded that Israel, as a sign of good faith and proof that they really desire peace, give a concession of some sort, usually conceding control of lands in Judea and Samaria, to the Palestinian Authority just to have a photo opportunity for the President with the leader of the Palestinian Authority, either Yasser Arafat or Mahmoud Abbas, as they proved interchangeable, shake hands with the Israeli Prime Minister and that was often the actual only accomplishment. Should there have been actual meetings after that it was always the same picture, Israel giving up control of more territory until the Arabs broke off negotiations pocketing the territories gained and giving up nothing. The negotiations always broke off the instant that it became necessary for the Palestinian Arabs to give up even recognition that Israel is a Jewish State. The reason this cannot and must not be granted by the Palestinian Authority leadership is simply because their desire is to erase Israel from the map or change it into an Arab state, nothing less will suffice as far as they are concerned and everything they do is towards that end. The secret is that this is also the desired result being sought by the Europeans and the United States Department of State. Oh, they will never admit that this is their desired result, but they along with the United Nations and most of the Arab and Muslim worlds all target Israel with the intent of her destruction. The result of all these concessions and negotiations and promises from so many “well-meaning” souls has been that Israel has all but given away all of Areas A and B.

 

But there have been other developments since 2012 as a result of a concerted effort, replete with European Union makings of at least five-hundred illegal buildings, which they claim are for Palestinian Arabs when the final peace comes. They do not believe for a moment that there is any peace deal ever going to come. The European Union was intentionally building facts on the ground to assist the Arab claim that all the land belongs to them. They know that should they manage to force the Israelis out of Judea and Samaria that this will lead to the bombardment of Tel Aviv and the entire coastal region along with Jerusalem and that this, in their estimation, will force the Jews to surrender the entirety of Israel. Once the schemers get their wildest desires, and they will not surrender trying until the day that Jerusalem and the greater Tel Aviv metropolitan area and suburbs are left as a smoldering heap of massive damage from massive rocket attacks of tens of thousands launched as rapidly as the Arabs are able, the final conflict will have been initiated. This will be when the full force of the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) will be felt. There will be no measured response and everything short of nuclear weapons will be unleashed on the Arabs who launched the attack as well as those who failed to prevent that action. They will all be driven across the Jordan River if they are fortunate, the remainder will be killed in the onslaught. The anger from the Israelis and their fighting force will be unleashed on whoever stands in opposition. Should Hezballah in Lebanon think this a good time to strike at Israel in conjunction with the Palestinian Arabs of the PA and Hamas, then Israel will also strike at Lebanon with equal ferocity as Hezballah and Lebanon have become one and the same thing as was proven in the Hezballah victory parade in Syria where they displayed their Abrams Tanks they procured from the Lebanese Army when the two forces merged. Simply stated, whoever pops their heads up and claims they want their piece of the war will find those heads removed in as rapid a fashion as feasible. Will Israel face destruction, probably quite a bit, especially along the Tel Aviv coast from Ashkelon to Haifa as well as around Jerusalem but buildings can be replaced, Israel must remain.

When that day these Europeans and select Americans envision comes and the Arabs are able to rain missiles onto the Israeli cities, there will be a surprise. If such comes from the Palestinian Authority areas; then the leadership, at the least, and the entire population, if required, will be driven from lands which were promised Israel and the Jews under the San Remo Conference, Treaty of Severs and the British Crown. Israel will take the lands to the Jordan River and that will be the end of the entire farce the world has been perpetrating with the intent to drive Israel into the ground. Israel and the Jews are home again and we are not leaving no matter what the world may try. The Arabs will not drive us from our homelands and neither will the European Union. We do not want anything more than what was promised and the world knows exactly what was promised. They may lie and attempt to steal the land from under our feet but that is not going to happen, not now, not ever. That is the promise that every Israeli child who loves this land makes when they enlist in the IDF.

 

Definitive Map of Israel

 

The map above is the promise reached with the British Crown when they repurposed 78% of the Mandate to fulfill two promises, to give the Arab Palestinians (those two words order are interchangeable) and to give a nation to the second Hashemite son of King Faisal, Abdullah I bin al-Hussein, the first king of Jordan. They took all the land east of the Jordan River to the border of Iraq where King Abdullah I’s brother ruled as the other half of the promise. That left the remaining paltry 22% of the land for the Jewish State and this was to be considered inviolate protected by the British Crown. Well, we have now seen that the worth and weight, not to mention veracity of promises from the British Crown have become. Still, this was what was promised. We gave away Gaza but should Hamas be a part of this fight, that too can change. The only promise I would hope could be given is we will stop at these borders and if everybody else accepts that the war is done, then that will be the end and peace will come with these borders. Anything beyond them, which include all of Judea, Samaria and the Golan Heights, but not Gaza on the map as we gave that away of our own accords, our own insanity of the moment while greatly pressured. And the lesson we learned should pay us dividends going forward. The result of Gaza should be fair warning. Does Israel have other problems? Yes, we have our internal difficulties, as we are a democracy and what nation does not have difficulties except, if you believe their propaganda, North Korea and Iran. Oh yes, Venezuela and Syria used to make that claim but making it today would be a ridiculous joke. In Israel the potential threats, which come from near and far with the far being the more troublesome, are simply part of everyday life and the ones from Europe and the United States State Department are some of the most feared with Iran a distant second. The Arabs in our neighborhood should remember that they have never witnessed the full brunt of what Israel today is capable of unleashing and we pray nobody ever requires such horrors from us; we prefer life even if our enemies worship death. Perhaps many do not remember Israeli history when we fought people who worshiped Ba’al which is another means of worshiping death as such belief included human sacrifice including the sacrifice of infants. We fought such back in the beginning and are amazed how little the barbarians have changed as they still sacrifice humans and even children in their craze to murder Israelis. If you listen to them, they are not targeting Israelis, they want to kill Jews which can be seen in their own words in videos captured and translated by Palestinian Media Watch, Middle East Media Research Institute and Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America. For the record, should Israel receive her due and have the Jordan River and Golan Heights as her eastern border and peace finally achieved, that would be an extremely happy ending and then we could write about just Israel’s internal needs instead of watching the world so closely. We can wish and hope but Hashem will provide what we need when we need, and that is happiness too.
