Israel Negotiations with Islam Fruitless

 

President Trump believes that by substituting the nation of Jordan for the Palestinian Authority (originally the PLO terror organization led by Yassir Arafat) as the coming solution known euphemistically as “The Deal of the Century” also known as President Trump’s grand solution, it will bring peace. We may remember that during the campaigns, both the primaries and the Presidential elections hearing candidate Trump making the grand claim the he would be the man who would solve the Arab-Israeli Conflict. We thought he was being presumptuous then and we think his idea of using Jordan is an equally grand pipe dream. Israel made peace with Jordan under their former King, Hussein bin Talal (Arabic: الحسين بن طلال) back in 1994 and back then Jordan released their claims to the Shomron (a.k.a. West Bank) which Jordan had illegally annexed in around 1951 after having taken it during the 1948-9 War of Intent to Eradicate the Nascent Jewish Aberration (a.k.a. Israel’s War of Independence). Interestingly, Jordan, Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Lebanon and the remainder of Arab militias and national contingents attacking Israel the morning of her birth had this strange concept. They all believed that the lines drawn on the proposal from the United Nations General Assembly contained in UNGA Resolution 181 were the defined front lines dividing the Arab world from the Zionist Entity. International Law believed, immediately after the Arab League refused the offer under UNGA Res. 181 voiding the entire offer making it as if it never had existed, believed the border of Israel in the east was the Jordan River. This means that according to International Law, the border for the Jewish State of Israel at the crack of dawn of May 15, 1948 included all of the Shomron and all of the Gaza Strip as it was called back in the day as their basis was the British Mandate borders (see map below). The war’s Arab intent was best described by Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League as follows: “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.” Obviously, as Israel still exists, something went terrible wrong with the Arab plans.

The result of this war, Egypt had control of the Gaza Strip and Jordan had control of the Shomron. Egypt controlled the Gaza Strip but never annexed the region nor provided the Arabs residing within Egyptian citizenship and left them as people with no actual country but as a protectorate of Egypt. Jordan, on the other hand, did annex the Shomron and renamed it West Bank, as the name Shomron was far too Jewish. They also extended full citizenship to all the occupants within and permitted free movement between the two sides of the Jordan River. Jordan even went further and gave many prominent Jordanians deeds to lands which had belonged to the Jews who had been dispossessed and forced from these now Arab lands. Further, the Jordanians also forced numerous thousands of their own citizens into the West Bank in order to cement their claims, almost tripling the number of residents. Only the British and Pakistanis recognized the Jordanian annexation of the Shomron while the rest of the world, including the Arab League, all refused to recognize the Jordanian move. This is an illegal act under International Law as the lands west of the Jordan River were gained as a result of an offensive war against Israel. Their claim was that the border was not the Jordan River but the result of UNGA Res. 181, but as we explained, the Arab League’s rejection of this resolution voided it and it has no legal standing. Yet time and again, the Arab World will pull out the map showing the planned borders of that resolution and demand that it be enforced as now they fully accept it and thus it is revived from its posthumous state. Fortunately, the enforcers of International Law, the World Court System, recognize UNGA Res. 181 as merely the vitrified remains of a proposal which was sunk by the Arab League’s rejection as do the Arabs which is why they have never challenged the legal borders of Israel, as they know the result will be the Jordan River.

 

When Israel and Jordan reached their agreement, just like Egypt surrendered their illegally held Gaza Strip, Jordan surrendered their illegally held Shomron. Then afterwards they made a grand announcement that their surrender of the West Bank had been to the PLO and not to Israel after Yasser Arafat threw a fit. Now we need take a look at the PLO which was formed in 1964 and not as a result of the Six Day War as the propaganda of its mythological beginnings likes to claim. The PLO was the brainchild of the KGB who assigned two of the top spots to their protégés, Yassir Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas, who both came from their training in Moscow. The KGB worked with the Arab League and a number of Arab nations and this was the beginning of the Palestinian Arabs. Previous, when referring to the Palestinians, one was referring to the Jews, as the Arabs were known as Egyptians, Syrians, Iraqis, Jordanians, and Saudi Arabians, or simply as Arabs. The KGB had planned well as they now used the fact that there existed a history of the Palestinians in the land which was the history of the Jewish residents under the British Mandate. By repetition they adopted the entirety of the Jewish history which called the Jews Palestinians and now they simply claimed that it meant Arab and the Jews were never in the lands until after World War II, a complete and total fabrication, but claiming the Jews came from Europe after the Holocaust and the world run by the British and Americans planted their unwanted Jewish refugees from the camps in the middle of Arab lands in order to destroy all the Arab lands. Never mind the 1917 Balfour Declaration, the 1920 San Remo Conference, the 1920 Treaty of Sèvres, the 1922 League of Nations Mandate System, and Article 80 of the United Nations Charter which made the United Nations responsible for enforcing the Mandate System exactly as applied when enacted by the League of Nations. All of these items came well before World War II and were mostly as an action where the European victors of World War I were seeking how to distribute the lands that they had won without actually taking the lands. There were also treaties which completely restructured Eastern Europe cutting up the German and Austro-Hungarian Empires. The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) were not the sole places which were altered as a result of the end of World War I and one of the main concepts behind these restructurings of borders was to return lands to their original existing indigenous peoples.

 

There were some exceptions such as the Kurdish People had been promised they were to receive lands in northern regions of Iraq but the finds of sizable oil fields in the Mosul region and a favorable agreement between Getty and the King of Iraq led to Britain simply granting Iraq rule over the Kurdish regions and the Kurds were cheated by the British out of their own promised homeland. When the Kurds recently took a vote and over 90% of their people demanded they declare independence, the United States threatened they could not support such a move with military aid as it was inconvenient at this time according to the United States State Department. Israel had backed Kurdish independence and told them that they would regret not taking this opportunity. Somebody should have also told them that the State Department is not the department which controls weapons sales and providing people protection, that is the Department of Defense. Since their choosing not to declare independence the Kurdish People have been under constant assaults by Iraqi and Iranian forces in northern Iraq and sweeping Turkish attempts at a genocide in northern Syria. The Kurds and the World will regret not granting the Kurds their required needs to make a free and democratic nation in the heart of the Middle East.

 

Now we are hearing that President Trump is about to make one intelligent move and one far less so. The first is going to be announce that the United States rejects Palestinian ‘Right of Return’ and puts a shot through the heart of UNWRA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East). What the State Department recently found was that the numbers of actual refugees, who remain of their original populations, not including their five or more million offspring since 1948, is estimated to be in the low tens of thousands. The United States claims these refugees should be placed within the Department of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees which should address the situation as per the same rules as for all refugees, honest and real and not manufactured refugees, the problem will be completed within five years. This is the first time anybody has dared to claim that the Palestinian Arabs as normal people and not as the most privileged individuals who are so far and away more important than anybody else and even beyond imagination. Still, Jordan as a replacement will produce difficulties, so now let us get down to the real business.

 

The first and very important item is that, as aforementioned, Jordan and Israel reached a peace treaty back in 1994 and in that peace Jordan released their claim to the Shomron. Former Jordanian ambassador Walid has presumably resurrected Jordan’s long-dormant claims to sovereignty in the disputed territories that completely undermine those of the PLO which was presumably inferred in this following statement:

“First of all, the unity of the West Bank with the East Bank was officially and constitutionally adopted on 24 of April 1950. No one disputes this fact. The Constitution of the country at the time was the 1952 Constitution, which stipulated in no uncertain terms that no part of the Kingdom shall be ceded, period. This provision makes the 1988 decision to cut off all legal and administrative relations between the two banks stopping short of ceding the West Bank to any side whatsoever. Any other interpretation of the 1988 political decision is absolutely untenable constitutionally.”

The first disputed statement was his claim that, “No one disputes this fact.” In reference to his statement that, “West Bank with the East Bank was officially and constitutionally adopted on 24 of April 1950.” Only, as previously stated, Pakistan and Britain recognized the Jordanian claim to the Shomron, even as the West Bank, as the world either had ulterior motives, such as the Arab League and Arab nations, or were aware of the invalid claim of annexing lands conquered in the Arab World’s offensive war of 1948-9. The entireties of the Palestinian Arab assertions are for a singular purpose, to destroy the entirety of the Jewish State. The original charter of the PLO laid absolutely no claim to the Shomron claiming that as it was part of Jordan and already in the hands of Islam, they had no problems with that situation, instead they laid claim to the entirety of Israel. Furthermore, the PLO charter did not claim they desired a Palestinian State and made no mentions of Palestine except that this was the lands in which Israel resided. Their intent was to turn all of the lands of Israel over to Jordan once they had eliminated the Zionist presence. It was not until after the Six Day War in June of 1967 that the PLO laid claim for liberating not only the original lands of Israel but also the Shomron. Their intent was still to claim these lands for existing Arab nations.

 

It was in 1993 with the Oslo Accords that the idea was broached to the PLO demanding their state of Palestine in the regions of the Shomron and Gaza for the state of Palestine. This concept was very likely suggested by Terje Larsen, a Norwegian sociologist, and Yossi Beilin, a member of Israel’s Labor Party during the earliest and secret negotiations carried out without the knowledge of the Israeli Knesset and only to select extreme left politicians one of which was Simon Peres. The Israeli government was quite shocked when the signing was brought to the Knesset as a complete deal backed by the United States State Department, the European Union, and numerous European leftists with a heavy representation from the Norwegians who provided the secret meetings in the earlier negotiations. We have often mentioned the European desire to find a means of destroying Israel and forcing the Jewish People back into the subservient position they once held where they lived and died on the whims of Christian and Islamic rulers. The concept of armed and proud Jews is an unimaginable and frightful presence to these paranoid delusionals. One of the claims is that Israel poses a threat to the world and especially the Europeans and Islamic worlds with its central location (see map). The paranoia and over-hyping of the presence of Israel and it presumably being the largest and most threatening nation on the Earth is beyond fantasy and well into the ludicrous. This effort by President Trump could be the final and last gasp of the entire Palestinian indigenous people and ancient nation of Palestine hoax.

 

Israel Compared to Europe and the Islamic World is Really Such a Threat?

The Palestinian drive to destroy Israel has reached a point where the world is getting completely fed up with the rejectionism of every deal no matter how generous. Ehud Barak even went to the point that he offered over 90% of the Shomron and even included East Jerusalem which was meeting everything which Yassir Arafat had told President Clinton was acceptable and would bring peace. Arafat stomped out the next morning rushing past everyone including the media and out the door, into his limo and straight to the airport and back to Jordan where he then returned to his office and began the implementation of the Second Intifada which he unleashed in the fall of 2000. Ehud Olmert made a similar offer to Mahmoud Abbas which was refused without offering any counter deal. It has become more than plainly obvious that the only deal the Arabs will agree to make is the complete removal of Israel from the map. The Khartoum Resolution of September 1967 where the “Three No’s” were agreed upon, “No peace with Israel, No recognition of Israel, No negotiations with Israel,” defined all dealings with Israel and the Jordanian peace was used to insert the Palestinian plan for Israeli destruction. This concept was simple where the idea was to change the appearance from Israel against the entirety of the Arab World to the Palestinian against the superpower Israel. It worked better than they could have ever hoped, for a while until it all started falling apart. The aggressive hatred of Trump which has been overly obvious and expressed in no uncertain words by Mahmoud Abbas and Saab Erekat and the Palestinian Authority’s absolute and complete rejection of United Stated mediation has bought them real problems. Their position has been lain bare showing that their only peace with Israel is an Israeli grave, and that means the entirety of the Israeli non-Islamic populations. This has bought them being circumvented by President Trump who has now rested his hopes on Jordan.

 

Initially, the Jordanians rejected replacing the Palestinian Authority in negotiations, telling President Trump’s representatives that they could not in good conscience represent the Palestinians as only the Palestinian Authority was capable of being their true representatives. President Trump then sought out Egypt and Saudi Arabia and both initially sounded much more promising. Following statements by both nations then revealed that they would not agree to anything which was less than exactly what Mahmoud Abbas wished for. All of these games could not have set well with Trump as he is more of a straight forward, tell me the reality and do not play games about it. There is no way we can know what President Trump used to change the minds of the leaders and King of Jordan. Whatever he used, it will not avail him in the end, as Jordanian leaders and even the King of Jordan are answerable to the Arab League and other higher institutions all of which will only accept the end of Israel as the Jewish State. We hope for their sake they do not tell President Trump that the Jews need to return to the nations from whence they or their families originally resided. This should go over well as President Trump is aware that half of the Israeli population originated in the Arab world and that Israel absorbed 850,000 Jewish refugees who were ejected from their homes in nations within MENA and many of these families have resided in these lands for generations many for over two thousand years. This was due to the Roman dispersion of the Jews around the year 135 A.D. which included all of the Middle East and Northern Africa. We would love for there to be peace and have suggested that the Palestinians could be given the opportunity to reside within Israel as resident aliens by signing a non-belligerence statement and also have the option to be well reimbursed for their properties and an additional relocation bonus for signing a non-return statement. What should be done about those who refuse both offers? They would need to be treated as belligerents which might prove to be a very unwise choice. Belligerents would simply be granted three times to choose one or the other and if they persist in complete refusal and continue to claim that their only acceptable end to their violence would be the end of Israel, well, they would be invited in a very strong and persistent manner to leave. Should they turn to violence, well, violence begets violence. The only end to this problem which is a war by other means is for one side to be able to declare victory. Israel needs to declare victory and give the Palestinians their choice as to how they wish to be treated. It must be made clear that this is a final situation and there will be no further debate or negotiations, Israel is simply declaring victory. First, let us see how well President Trump and his efforts prove to be. Should they fail, and they most likely will, then Israel must declare victory and end the charade of a Palestinian Arab People whose nation was conquered by Israel. The lands they claim were Palestine were Gaza which was held by Egypt and the Shomron which was illegally claimed by Jordan. There was no Palestine at the time of any of the Arab-Israeli Wars, not in 1948-9, not in 1967 and not in 1973. That is the reality and it is time to apply reality.

More Insights on the Jordanian Position

 

Yesterday, we quoted a retired Jordanian Ambassador and former editor of the Jordan Times, Walid Sadi, stating in a recent op-ed article in that very same Jordan Times, “First of all, the unity of the West Bank with the East Bank was officially and constitutionally adopted on 24 of April 1950. No one disputes this fact. The Constitution of the country at the time was the 1952 Constitution, which stipulated in no uncertain terms that no part of the Kingdom shall be ceded, period. This provision makes the 1988 decision to cut off all legal and administrative relations between the two banks stopping short of ceding the West Bank to any side whatsoever. Any other interpretation of the 1988 political decision is absolutely untenable constitutionally.” We basically concluded that Jordan was claiming that despite presumably losing these lands in the Six Day War, they were now reclaiming these lands, as it is impossible for the armies of Allah to ever lose a war, and going to enter into any negotiations under the coming Trump “Deal of the Century” with the positions that the Green Line, the 1949 armistice lines are the current borders between Israel and Jordan. Well, if only that were the end of the story one could be amazed with the bravado and disgusted with the lack of reality. Then again, as we are fond of saying, but wait, there’s more!

Former Jordanian Culture Minister Salah Jarrar (pictured above), who serves as Vice President of Amman’s University of Jordan, published an article in Al-Rai on July 4, 2018, which slammed President Trump’s “Deal of the Century” outright and proposed a better idea. MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute) has translated the entirety of the article for anyone to read. We would recommend that all please visit the MEMRI translation of this article and take in the full arrogance, ostentation, and pomposity of the author and the stated positions and demands. We will only place a small excerpt to whet your taste and provide an appetite for the remainder.


we must end our silence and idleness and declare, first of all, that we categorically oppose all the Zionist and American plans and that we will be the ones to choose the deal we want as a solution [to the conflict]. It will be the Deal of [our] Lifetimes, not the Deal of the Century, and will include the following clauses:

1) The Israeli occupation of the Palestinian lands between the Mediterranean and the Jordan River will end.

2) All the Jews who came to Israel after the Balfour Declaration of 1917, as well as their children and descendants, will return to the countries from which they came, without taking anything with them.

3) The U.S. and Britain will compensate the Palestinians for all the damage caused by the Zionist occupation to the land and its people.

4) The U.S. and Britain will compensate the Arab states for the damage caused to them by the Zionist aggression against their lands, and for hosting the [Palestinian] refugees throughout the years of occupation.

5) All Israelis who took part in killing Palestinians will be turned over to the Palestinians to be prosecuted and to receive the punishment they deserve.

6) The Palestinian refugees will return to their homes and their property.

7) The leadership of the Zionist occupation will sign a document stating that they have no rights, historical or otherwise, in Palestine.

8) Should the Israeli side, or its American ally, wish to negotiate about any of these clauses, this will be put to referendum among the Palestinian people, and [negotiations will occur] only if all the children of Palestine and the families of all the martyrs agree to this.

…some may claim that the above clauses a dream that cannot be realized given the current state of the Arab nation. I say that the current state, grave as it is, does not deprive anyone of his rights, and that these clauses (are) our rights and we must continue to demand…

 

As stated above, go and read the entirety and please buffer your jaw such that it does not fall to the floor at the insanity being claimed and proposed. We can only pray that President Trump is being advised about the trap being set and the preconditions being stated to be taken as facts as he prepares to walk potentially blithely into the lion’s den, and we suspect he will be less fortunate than Daniel from Biblical times. The Jordanian leadership is being pressed not to merely regain the lands lost from the Six Day War but to demand lands lost by the Ottoman Empire resulting from World War I and claiming them as rightfully belonging to the Jordanians as the successors to Ottoman Rule over the entirety of the British Mandate. This actually is not half as crazy as it seems because the British would have been content with giving the entirety to Arab rule and proved this when voting in the United Nations to divide is again into Arab and Jewish States after allowing the Arabs 78% of the Mandate lands when creating Jordan. As far as the world can tell, they would have divided Israel in half for as many times as it would have taken to erase Israel using the United Nations and whatever other authority they could find. Fortunately, the Arabs refused that further division and instead attempted to eradicate Israel militarily in 1948-9 and only ended up with Jordan holding the Shomron, which they renamed the West Bank, as its real name was too Jewish, and Egypt holding Gaza. The Six Day War returned these lands to their rightful nation, Israel, as proposed in the original Mandate plans pictured below. The accepted division of the British Mandate which the Arabs and the Zionist Congress agreed upon split the lands with the Jordan River as the demarcation line between the two entities, This should have made everything simple, but when it comes to the world’s relations with the Jews, it is never just that simple as Jewish rights are considered malleable to the point of their complete disregard and destruction.

 

British Mandate as prescribed division between Arab State of Jordan and Jewish State of Israel

British Mandate as prescribed division between Arab State of Jordan and Jewish State of Israel

 

Another takeaway from the diatribe from Salah Jarrar’s compendium of demands is that the United States is but to be the lap dog along with the British in this deconstruction of Israel for which the method and results are plainly laid out and the United States and Britain have their marching orders and demands for them to provide more trillions of dollars and pounds to the Arab treasuries as if they have not done anything up to now. This is what the world is reaping for their complicity in the Arab machinations for the destruction of Israel. The one interesting point in all their plans of mice and men is that they demand that somebody else, the men, do the heavy lifting while they scurry around potentially only managing to get under foot and destroy their plan themselves. They cannot accept that they lost the Six Day War after also almost losing the War to Annihilate Israel which the world and Israel, to her shame, the Israeli War of Independence, as it came immediately after Israel declared themselves a nation believing the Jordan River to be her eastern border. Perhaps what they should do is try to figure out why Allah has allowed every nation to defeat them and what was the point at which this became an identifiable problem. Some historians might point to the point where they abrogated half of the Quran and decided that the Mecca Quran had nothing to teach them. Perhaps when the Islamic faith decided that Jihad was more about conquest than introspection and improving the world through making each person the best person they could conceivably be. It is where many modern Jews have strayed believing they should repair the world and do so by foisting their ideas upon the rest of the world and not looking inside to their souls and finding peace with Hashem and his commandments, all 613 of them. Perhaps both faiths should learn that the real beauty of their faiths is that it advises making oneself better and by having each person improving themselves, the world will take care of itself.

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.
