Proportionality in War a Losing Proposition

 

There is one particular word which the leftists, Arabists, terrorist leaders, BDS advocates and the rest of the destroy Israel groups love to pull from their bag and berate Israel for winning, Proportionality is its name. There is one area where Jews have more diverse and deep knowledge than most modern nations, and that is war. This is not because the Jews started all the wars throughout history. It is because the Jews, no matter what nation they resided within, would volunteer to fight in wars to protect their homeland even though that homeland was not Jewish but because it was where they resided and they appreciated being accepted. The one item which has been consistent in warfare until extremely recently was that there was nothing to be gained by proportionality and ensuring that your side and your enemies both suffer similar losses. Here is a little secret, that is not the formula for winning a war. The formula for winning a war is to force disproportional losses upon your enemy while minimizing your own losses. So, from where does this idea that the IDF soldiers must ensure proportionality in every engagement?

 

Unfortunately, the idea of proportionality is a direct result of the IDF view of conducting any conflict whereby the IDF is utilized in ways by which the numbers of civilian casualties are kept to a minimum. The various wars with Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror organizations are where these terror fighters tend to hide behind crowds of civilians, use children as chest protectors and fire rockets and mortars from atop schools, hospitals, mosques, and residential blocks of apartments. The one place where these attacks are never fired from are the neighborhoods where the terror leaders reside in nice homes near a modern mall and numerous restaurants. They make sure to preserve their lives while victimizing their own people and their safety. The terror forces of Hamas and Islamic Jihad see the deaths of Palestinian Arabs as a win-win situation as they can display these corpses as murdered by the IDF regardless of their being placed in harm’s way by their own government forces. Should a terrorist be killed, remove their rifle, their spare ammunition magazines, grenades and other weaponry or markers and instantly there is another civilian murdered. Further, if it can be shown that the IDF efforts killed more Gazans than Israelis killed by the terrorists, this is where Proportionality comes into play. Many of the countries from whence these demands for proportionality be practiced by Israel are themselves not obeying the concept of proportionality when their nation is in the field of battle. The United States and Britain are two of the nations for whom proportionality is great for thee but not for me. The CBS News report spells out plainly that the allied forces in Afghanistan efforts resulted in a greater number of civilian deaths and injuries than the Taliban during the same period. While the United States, predominantly, was singled out for the largest share of blame, there still was no call for proportionality. Often, whenever the term proportionality is pulled out, it is done to paint Israel into a corner and to threaten the young IDF soldiers with charges of war crimes in the hope that when that split second decision comes, the IDF soldier will think longer as to whether to shoot and thus the result is the Israelis will face far higher casualties. Of course, this is the aim of this insipid and morose game, to murder Israelis, or simply put, murder Jews.

 

General Patton was quoted in a movie about World War II stating, “No dumb bastard ever won a war by going out and dying for his country. He won it by making some other dumb bastard die for his country.” Under such advice, there could not be any belief that General George Patton would have ever supported proportionality, he supported victory, complete victory. Bringing this closer to home, allow us to quote Azzam Pasha immediately before the dawn assault upon Israel on May 15, 1948, the very morning Israel was brought into being. He stated that the next morning was to bring an assault with an intent best described so succinctly by Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League at that time, who stated, “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.” This was what was intended by the six Arab armies from Saudi Arabia, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Iraq and Jordan which were perched on every border just awaiting the command. We fail to note any attempts at proportionality in the Arab intent the very morning Israel first breathed air in her own lands. But the Arabs forces are never required to consider proportionality when killing Israelis, or as they look at it, killing Jews. The Arab and Islamic forces which have intent of destroying Israel are permitted to use any amount of disproportional force to wipe Israel off the map while Israel must be mindful of proportionality. This will be spread to Europe and eventually the United States as the Islamic world continues to spread across the globe in another attempt to bring the world under Islam.

 

Quoting President Trump as reported by CNBC, the President has made a concession which could come back down the road to hamstring American military forces. President Trump claimed foolishly that he called off the attack on Iran after their downing a multi-million-dollar United States surveillance drone Tweeting, “We were cocked & loaded to retaliate last night on 3 different sights when I asked, how many will die,” Trump wrote. “150 people, sir, was the answer from a General. 10 minutes before the strike I stopped it, not […] proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone. I am in no hurry, our Military is rebuilt, new, and ready to go, by far the best in the world.” This sets a very dangerous and impossible standard for the United States military to meet and with President Trump bringing proportionality into the discussion, it will only hurt American and allied forces. There do exist ideals which one hopes their military can live up to and standards which they are required to live up to and these must be kept separate. The ideals you teach the troops as guidelines for ethical behavior and the troops are to bear these in mind when engaging an enemy. These ideals are not to be advertised to the world as they place troops in less favorable positions when engaging on the field of battle. Then there are standards which every soldier is expected to obey and use as guides for all actions on the field of battle. Standards can be shared as these should be the rules by which every military practice in warfare. Unfortunately, when your enemies hold to a different set of moral codes, then there will be no reciprocity and these restrictions then only serve to restrict one side. This will be the same once again as the War in the Pacific where prisoners of war held by the Japanese were often mistreated, malnourished denied religious observance and even marched to death by the Japanese as well as torture used as a means of forcing compliance. Japanese prisoners were fed the same as the allied troops, had their own areas with a bed (cot) and small chest where they could keep any belongings and they were permitted to pray as they saw fit. Any coming war with Islamic forces will have consequences and disproportionate rules of engagement where all attempts will be made to force proportionality upon the Western forces as theirs are moral based armies who rely on superior firepower and technology for their upper hand while the Islamic forces will be living as best they are able to the description of what was given above by Azzam Pasha.

 

The problem is that most of the Western World will now actually attempt to fight a proportionate war simply because they desire to meet the highest possible standards in their troops and methods of engagement. While we saw much of the Islamic concept of warfare where all is fair in war, we are not sure about love as none will be forthcoming to the United States or Israel in the coming fight for control of Europe, Middle East, Northern Africa and the Americas, all of which are fronts which Iran expects to dominate. Thus far, Iran has walked casually across Iraq, Yemen, Syria and Lebanon without a single complaint by the United Nations and the world. Israel, on the other hand, has received several rebuts for attacking Iranian forces, be they IRGC, Hezballah or Iranian military forces when they launched upon Israeli forces and civilian towns. The math makes everything become so painfully obvious as to how the United Nations reacts to legitimate efforts by Israel, the United States and others when their efforts bring them into conflict with Islamic forces. In the United Nations there are over twenty Arab States and an additional thirty-five Islamic nations and finally the NAM group (Non-Aligned Movement) which itself has one-hundred-twenty member states in and of itself allowing for these allied groups to rule virtually every United Nations Agency, the General Assembly and should the United States decide to no longer protect Israel in the Security Council, these allied forces will be able to bring the weight of the world down on Israel simply because it is hated and the United States because, well, they are too powerful and require being brought down low so the rest of the world can overtake her.

 

The apparent coming war which will begin in the Middle East will be fought on Iranian terms as the United States, specifically due to President Trump not desiring to initiate any conflict, thus leaving the initial launching of hostilities to be at the behest of Iran. The questions surrounding what Iran decides will be their initial offensive moves. There is one item which is all but guaranteed is that Hezballah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the IRGC forces in Syria will launch literally thousands of rockets and missiles against Israel. Whether this will be the entirety of the initial Iranian assault will also be determined by Iran. The question is will any nations support Israel or will she be left to fight completely on her own. Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezballah, an Iranian armed and supported terrorist army which controls all of southern Lebanon and used by Iran in Syria and Yemen, has promised that his armaments are capable of striking all of Israel which he states will be the destruction of the Jewish State. Nasrallah has stated that should the United States and Iran enter into a conflict; this would be the sign which would allow his army to launch rockets on Israel for as long as they are capable. With Hezballah having over one-hundred-fifty-thousand rockets and missiles of varying sizes, ranges and warheads, their intent will be to launch as many of these armaments as rapidly as they are capable upon the major cities and other vital targets. Nasrallah bragged that Hezballah used to be capable of striking barely south of Haifa can now strike targets even beyond Eilat, the southernmost Israeli city. There was one item in his speech which was almost comforting as he stated that they were not intending to begin such a conflict immediately. Still, such is not all that comforting as should Iran order their terrorists to strike and attempt to destroy Israel, they will obey their orders leading to Israel facing a war on at least two fronts, Hezballah from southern Lebanon, Hamas and Islamic Jihad attacking from Gaza and combined forces engaging Israel from southwestern Syria. These forces have already launched rockets and drones into Israel bringing Israeli responses to bring these attacks to a close, but these are nothing compared to what the Iranian allies are capable of using.

 

Then there is the final threat to Israel and the United States. This also brings us to the point where history has taught that the human race has always utilized the weapons which brought the previous war to a close as the opening act in the next major conflagration. This brings us to the question which has been avoided, does Iran have nuclear weapons, if so, how many, what yields and how many missiles and rockets capable of delivering such weapons. With several Iranian military commanders and politicians claiming that Israel is merely a one or two bomb nation strongly implied the use of nuclear weapons. The claim that Iran does not currently possess nuclear weapons we find to be an obvious refusal by the Western World to accept what should be an obvious truth. Iran has been seeking nuclear weapons since at the least the mid 1990’s. This has provided Iran with more than sufficient time to develop nuclear fission weapons and leads to a high probability that they also possess thermo-nuclear weapons and have had the time to miniaturize these weapons such that they will easily sit atop Iranian ballistic missiles. Add to this that Iran has perfected the means of launching ballistic missiles from freighter cargo ships which means they could easily attack the United States using this method. Iran places their lack of belief that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed by nuclear weapons just as they claim the Holocaust never happened. The rejection of the Holocaust is used to claim that the Jews use this to pressure the world into doing what Israel desires and the atomic bombs ending World War II were used to prevent other nations from attaining these weapons leaving the United States as the most powerful nation. When one adds that Iran has Uranium mines within their borders, a heavy water reactor which can produce plutonium and many advanced centrifuges with which to produce a uranium based weapon all without having to import much of anything before having all required to make any variety of nuclear weapons their scientists are capable of building. Below is a map showing the distance from Iran to Israel and the Iranian nuclear facilities. It appears to be preposterous to believe that Iran has not already acquired a nuclear arsenal which they could launch at Israel, Saudi Arabia, the United States fleets and anyone else they decide to strike setting off the next war.

This leads to questions as to whether Israel should preemptively strike the weapons stores which have been built up by Hezballah and other Iranian proxies or should the United States find a means of destroying any nuclear weapons Iran may be preparing to use. This next war could start whenever Iran decides that such is to their advantage. Human history does not make one comfortable with the threats growing from Iran and her allied terrorist forces. Iran can block almost all oil shipments from the Middle East by blocking the Straits of Hurmuz and isolate Europe from Asia, the Middle East and Pacific Ocean by closing the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait closing off the Red Sea making the Suez Canal completely useless. The cards would initially appear to be stacked in Iranian favor which is likely one of the reasons that they have yet to pull the trigger, so to speak. Eventually, Iran will finish their countdown and the attacks will be launched. We have little idea how much of the countdown is left and where the initial war will be launched. The two things we can rely upon are that the United States and Israel will be amongst the initial targets. The rest we will simply have to wait and see. Such a situation is far from ideal but that has been the problem with the Western World, always reacting to what has been thrust upon it and always playing catch-up as they always allow their enemies to decide and direct the initiating salvos.

The World Where Israel is Just Another Nation

Just walk with us here for a while and let us examine how different the world would be if Israel were just one nation amongst all the others, no separate treatment, no organized and oil financed hate programs (or should they be called what they are, economic pogroms), no organized programs blanketing the larger and more prestigious universities and colleges, no oil financed terrorism on her borders, no rockets fired into her lands from much of her border, no looming threats from Hezballah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad, no dictatorships set up on her borders for the sole reason of genocidal hatred driven murders, no intifada and no constant United Nations condemnations; just a little nation nestled along the eastern edge of the Mediterranean Sea, a nation about the size of New Jersey (see map if New Jersey replacing Israel with approximations of cities paired from each), a nation struggling from her birth just over seventy years ago and a nation which is really a marvel when one looks at her with unbiased eyes, objectively and without any tints of hatred or vile recriminations clouding vision obscuring the truth.

Imagine that Israel almost never makes the headlines in the New York Times at least twice each month claiming some recriminating proof that Israel is a terrible place. It really is not as we live here and it is simply very nice. Imagine that Israel was not forced into a war every two to three years because hundreds to thousands of rockets were being fired over her border. By the way, the first sign that something was wrong, as reported by the New York Times, would be when Israel finally responds to the assaults on her people. Then it is front page news, Israel attacks Gaza or Lebanon and somewhere around the next to last paragraph on a back page after two referrals to follow the article they finally report that Israel had been besieged by rockets for the past six weeks and the escalation had reached a point where it was no longer able to tolerate. Another way Israel is cast in a bad light in reports in the news is when they report that the Israeli police or the IDF killed a Palestinian Arab and eventually the article will note that the Palestinian Arab who was killed was attempting to kill the police or IDF attacking them with a knife, and they are not using the kitchen butter knife, even though some do take the meat cleaver or the largest carving knife from their kitchen while others use knives designed for combat situations. Without such reports along with the glowing coverage given to anti-Israel protests, many of which are paid for by the oil kingdoms of the Middle East or the Muslim Brotherhood and its numerous organizations which act in concert with the Muslim Brotherhood directions. We just have to bring up one reporter who was asking questions of an IDF command officer who had a question concerning the Iron Dome systems. This reporter asked the IDF commander why Israel has not provided the Iron Dome systems to the people of Gaza to protect them from missiles fired into Gaza. The commander simply called on the next reporter. The biggest item to report on in the Gaza war was the casualty statistics with some coverage reaching stages of ghoulish proportions that it often appeared as if they were asking, where are the dead Israelis, actually more like where are the dead Jews. For an excellent, if long, article which may tempt one to take notes, can be read here. But enough about how Israel is mercilessly vilified by much of Western media, let us go on to what if Israel made the news as often as and for similar reasons as Canada or Shangri-La.

 

If Israel were any normative nation which is the homeland of its people, obviously not all of them as some reside elsewhere just as every one of French origins do not reside in France, not all Chinese live in China or Taiwan and not all Filipinos reside in the Philippines. Thus, not all Jews live in Israel. Further, not all Israeli citizens are Jewish, only about 70% with close to 20% are Arab plus 2% Christian as well as 2% Druze with Bedouin, Hindu, Filipinos and Baha’I making up the remaining 4% or there abouts. Another item which people often get wrong is that the Jews of Israel are not predominantly European. There is a close balance between European Jews and Sephardi and Mizrahi Jews largely refugees from the Arab and Muslim worlds. The remainder which accounts for between ten and fifteen percent (some guesswork here) are largely from India, South America and Ethiopia. The Jews in Israel span the racial spectrum from Caucasian to Indian or Ethiopian and virtually every possible inclusion between. Israel, other than for the large percentage being Jewish, is a fairly normal appearing Western nation with people from all corners of the globe and racial mix probably more varied than the average European nation. Certainly, the population is very diverse for a nation of Israel’s size. Israel does make one list which is very positive, the happiness index of nations where Israel was number eleven, last time we checked. As residents and citizens of Israel, we can verify that Israelis are, as a whole, very happy people, very helpful, courteous, kind and understanding. Our little theory is that the having to mix populations from varied origins, most arriving with little wealth, and reviving a language which had been considered a dead language used solely in religious services longer than Latin, namely Hebrew, that Israel has one of the most diverse and interesting mixes of the various populations.

 

Israel would make a great success story if only anybody cared to report the positive sides of Israel. Israel is the first nation to be revived after over two millennia of her being conquered and her people dispersed over the entire planet. Hebrew is the only language to have been considered dead to be revitalized and brought into daily use. Within seventy years Israel has become one of the leaders in the technology fields, specifically apps and computer technologies, both hardware and software. Israel has been named the Start-up Nation as she has the most start-up companies per capita even ahead of the United States who came in a respectable second. Israel is a leader in agricultural technologies. She has led the way in providing agricultural know how to African farmers assisting them in using less water and gaining greater yields from their crops. Israel also has provided numerous small villages and tribal villages with electrical power and cell phone service allowing them contact with the outside world for the first time. These systems use batteries which are recharged from solar technologies while they provide a tower and microwave relay to connect them with cell service. Israel is a leader in healthcare industries inventing new procedures, inventing or improving medical devices such as heart stents, making strides in cancer treatment and research and also making progress with treating age related diseases and many of the mentally handicapping diseases and birth defects. One of the areas in which an Israeli company has made strides is developing procedures for treating infant heart disabilities and spreading their knowledge. They have taught many surgeons these procedures and even in many cases opened up new departments in the hospitals whose physicians they have trained with all the required equipment, monitors and supplies. For young children with heart problems outside of the places treatments are available, they bring the child with family to Israel and treat them in Israel (this includes bringing children from nations with no relations with Israel clandestinely through a third neutral nation while never marking Israel on their travel documents, as doing so could endanger their lives. Excuse the plug here, but this group has a descriptive name, Save a Child’s Heart. These would be the kind of news stories coming from Israel if only she were a normal nation.

 

But Israel is not just another nation, is she. No, she is the home, ancient home, of the Israelites who later became the Judeans which, thanks to the Greeks and Romans after them simplifying things like names, simply Jews. This makes Israel the Jew amongst the nations of the world. This little statement defines the problem succinctly. Being the Jewish nation makes Israel the new and largest target for those who hate Jews, and we are talking about more than a few neo-Nazi and white supremacists. Anti-Semitism has a number of categories under which one must seek to find the truth. There are the above alt-right groups, communists, most of Islam, and the latest and fastest growing group, the progressives and the left, specifically the far left. The rapidly growing leftist anti-Semitism is the reason that Israel is so vilified by the Western media which has a far left bias. The hate-fest on the left is only going to grow and will become a force in Western politics sooner rather than later. The most recent elections in the United States may have the first wave of true anti-Israel bias declaring the Congress as their home turf causing Israel possible difficulties as described in this article. Then there are dark clouds over parts of Europe. Ireland is considering passing mandatory BDS legislation forbidding doing business with many Israeli companies. Britain may elect Jeremy Corbin as their next Prime Minister along with the Labor Party and its reported anti-Semitic problems which are gaining power and have found their home right along with the far left. The far left across Europe will continue to pose a greater and greater set of problems for Israel in her relations with much of Europe and the European Union. Israel’s best friends come from groups which make progressive and leftist Jews nervous, the right wing nationalists of Europe and the Republican Party in the United States. Israel was once a strong-point for leftists but Israel did something unforgivable, she started winning. Israel is no longer the weak surprise victor in the Six Day War. With her repeat performance after a debacle of a start to the following Yom Kippur War, Israel was now a problem because she was proving to have inner strength and resilience. Then there was the deal-breaker, the Israeli economy started to improve and continued to improve as the governments became more conservative and supportive of Capitalism. Israel stepped back slightly from her socialist beginnings which endeared her to the left and became a strong capitalist nation with nationalist governments becoming the norm.

 

Then Israel refused to surrender completely to the Palestinians, the new media and leftist darlings who could do no wrong. That was the last straw for the far left as they fully throatily support the Palestinian cause. As the average citizen of Europe and North America rely heavily on the mainstream media and the news blurbs they catch between half-hour blocks of their favorite music, their knowledge about Israel is between scant and none. We are talking real and actual knowledge, not the wild and horrific picture Israel has been painted as by the media. Some of the editorial cartoons and many op-ed pages are close to being reconditioned material taken from Der Stürmer, the Nazi tabloid. Just as hateful against the Jews is telling old blood libels as news, they also published sexually explicit, anti-Catholic, anti-Communist, and anti-monarchist propaganda. They were the Fascist paper which supported the Nazis but without carrying their twisted cross thus gaining more general acceptance. The problem is Israel has replaced the Jew as the target for anti-Semitic hatred. Zionism is the new Judaism and is the beast which must be driven into the ground and killed. This is the only explanation for why the media parrots the lies and exaggerations provided as the official line by Hamas concerning Israel during the conflicts they have had with Israel. Then, when Hamas tells the truth that stating, “Fifty of the sixty-two Gazans killed in border violence were our members,” nobody prints it or shows the video (see below) on the news of the Hamas official broadcast and the silence was deafening. But then again, why show a story which has the people your reporting has been covering for and telling the Western world that the Israelis have murdered innocent peaceful protesters along the Gaza border all day long and then have Hamas official spokesperson claim that fifty out of sixty-two, over eighty-percent, of the casualties were Hamas operatives, terrorists, not innocent peaceful protesters. To make matters worse adding insult to injury, from further down in the article, allow us to quote, “The Iran-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad had said on Tuesday that three members of its Saraya al-Quds military wing were killed by Israeli forces in Khan Younis.” That makes it fifty-three terrorists out of sixty-two, that is over eighty-five percent, on this single day of rioting and sending incendiary balloons into Israel, with rushing the border fence, burning thousands of tires, attempted breaching of the border, snipers crawling to the fence and more violence and almost all the Western nightly news showed the youths playing soccer and families having picnics claiming these were the examples of everyone at the Hamas ordered March of Return protest. The pictures shown on the newscasts were of the peaceful protesters who were close to half a mile from the fence and the violence. But the news cameras continued to point eastward with all the actual events taking place behind them to the west towards the border with Israel, but they had a story to sell. Israel murdering innocents during peaceful protest, that was their story and they were going to stick with it, and this means they could never show the prideful Hamas spokesperson claiming they had fifty shahids, dead martyrs, out of the sixty-two fatalities with Islamic Jihad claiming three others, nothing but the best chosen shots for the news, no reality television here.

 

 

That is what is so aggravating and sorry all at the same time. Israel is given short shrift no matter what she does. There is not an accusation which has not been leveled at Israel, as she can do nothing right. We face a world which desires that we surrender our lands to people who would just as soon see us dead. The one item we can give to Hamas is at least they say exactly what they mean. In their charter, they say it as plain as noon on a hot August day, they desire completely eradicating the Jews from the world. They desire to destroy Israel but they also have plans for what to do afterwards, murder every Jews on planet Earth. They desire the murder of approximately fifteen-million Jews ending our existence on planet Earth. Hamas has plans to complete the work begun by the Roman Empire, then followed up upon by Adolph Hitler and Hamas will pick up the remainder. That is what comes from the world’s first and greatest persecution of the whole of Israel completely, and this is exactly what the Quran calls for, from every follower of Allah must have this visceral hatred for the Jewish People. The Jews are to be denied basic rights such as land ownership. The Jews are to be eradicated and Iran has adopted this theme aiming to be the first to actually complete just such a task. This is part of the dream, that they not only eradicate the Jews within Israel and restore Islamic rule over the lands currently held by Jews, but then Hamas will do whatever it takes to eradicate the Jews in their entirety. This is simply further proof that their leadership is obsessed with destroying the Jewish People. This will leave them permanently dissatisfied and will bring about their downfall.

Anti-Western Hatred Doubles Down

 

There are movements across Europe and starting to fester within the United States which cast the Caucasian Race as the ultimate evil and a plague upon the Earth. This is often disguised as anti-colonialism despite the fact that colonialism dies a permanent death between the two World Wars. In France there have been reports of a great part of France has actually stood up to shout “Death to Whites,” and far worse including classes such as the one last July at the prestigious School of Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences (Ehess) there was a workshop dedicated to the “white condition,” seen as intrinsically oppressive. There are also classes reserved for people other than whites offered in European Universities. Often these anti-white protests blame slavery as if it were a modern day problem in the Western World. It was the 1833 Slavery Abolition Act passed by Britain which brought slavery in the Western World to an end. The British navy, which ruled the seas, declared war upon the slave trade sinking every slave-ship they came across in the Atlantic Ocean and into the Mediterranean Sea. The United States ended the practice at the end of the Civil War in 1865 with the surrender by General Lee to General Grant in the Appomattox Courthouse. But why allow reality, history and the truth to get in the way of hyperbole.

Does slave trade actually exist in any form today? The unfortunate truth is yes. The most accurate data we were able to compile are represented in the map below. The reality is very quickly grasped that the Western World, the Caucasian world, where slavery has been all but eradicated. This, in and of itself, is solid refutation of the claims made by these protesters across Europe and North America. They are preaching to the one peoples on the Earth who ended the grotesque practice of slavery. These protesters would have faced a greater risk of being enslaved in their homelands than they do in Europe or North America. But, as we have been prone to pointing out, why allow reality get in the way of a great sounding slogan which fits so readily on poster-boards and chanted at a protest. There is a problem in Europe when it comes to unemployment as there are fewer and fewer jobs for all youth and that difficulty is even more prevalent amongst the immigrant population. Records for 2016 for Europe depict that foreign-born unemployment is almost fifteen percent while native-born unemployment sits at eight percent, just slightly over half as much. Many believe that the unemployment for foreign born is actually considerably higher as it is based upon known foreign population and omits those who entered illegally or never registered and thus are not included in the statistics. But unemployment is not slavery and further, being unemployed does not equate with starvation, as benefits are sufficient for a modest life. Slavery is a brutal and demeaning blight against humanity, especially in our modern world. The areas where this practice still exists should be the target of efforts to end such subjugation, but Europe and North America are not the correct target having rid themselves of this practice over a century and a half ago.

There has been one special nation which has been chosen as being doubly white despite having a wide mix of racial groups. That nation is Israel and it became deserving of this label because the Jews are considered to be whiter white people, a double white if you take the denotation by many protesters. The claim is that Israel is not the home of the Jews and that there never was a Jewish kingdom in the Holy Lands, let alone at least three, the original Twelve Tribes, the kingdom of Israel and the Kingdom of Judah, the Empire built by King David and King Solomon and Modern Israel with the borders as defined by the San Remo Conference, the Mandate System, the League of Nations, the United Nations and International Law (see map below). Israel is a multicultural nation with a desperate mixture of Jews from around the globe. The two largest groups of Jews are the Ashkenazi, the Sephardim, Ethiopian, Bnei Menashe (India), Moroccan, Mizrahi and Jews from every continent and virtually every nation where Jews were permitted to live (See Table Below). Further, there is DNA proof that despite the dispersion of Jews throughout the globe, for the most part, excluding modern converts, the Jews have remained a distinct people with their origins being the Middle East and specifically the region of the Holy Lands. The preponderance of evidence is that the Jewish People are in fact a unique group whose origins are the Holy Land and their claim to being the indigenous people is valid and thus completely rules out the colonial myth. Further, the immigration of Jews from every corner of the globe proves that Israel is a multicultural nation and with her Arab, Bedouin, Baha’I, Druze, Syriac Christians, Armenians, Kurds, and numerous other groups outside of her Jewish majority that Israel has amongst the most diverse ethnicity of any nation on Earth. That is the reality, yet Israel is cast by the protests across Europe and breaking into North America as a purely white colonial invasion of the purely Islamic Middle East when it is the Muslims who are the invaders arriving in the Seventh Century replacing a long line of previous invaders which included but is not limited to the Assyrians, Egyptians, Hittites, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Islamic Caliphate, Crusaders, Muslims led by Kurds under Salah ad-Din or Saladin, the Ottomans and the British. Finally, Israel has been returned to her first permanent civilization whose peoples remain to this day as an identifiable people.

Still, the truth can never get in the way of a wave of protesters who have a slogan which is catchy and can be chanted. It is of little help that many in Europe agree that Israel is an imposition, but not on Islam or the Arab Middle East, but on their new religion of Secular Humanity. Secular Humanists have an aberrant phobia against anything which supports Judeo-Christian ethics, and nothing says Judeo of Judeo-Christian than the reemergence of Israel, the originators of Judeo ethic and where Christian ethics got their birth. As the Islamic immigrants in Europe share this disdain for anything Judeo-Christian, the European elites have attached themselves to their movement. Their idea is they can take over and adjust Islam to fit the Secular Humanist agenda. We believe that these European elites are in for one very big surprise, and they probably will not like this surprise, as it is the will of Islam that it must supersede all others and do so through purity of its Quran as interpreted by their Imams. But when it comes to reality and truth, the Europeans and the rest of the Western World have had their way with the world and apparently are not completely done playing with other peoples’ affairs. This does partly explain the reason for the animus against Western civilization. What the world need prepare to face and find how to deal with is the coming resurgence of the third wave of Islamic conquest. The initial target is to finally, once and for all, take control of Europe. Many European elites are actually facilitating this making even more likely to become an inevitability. One of the main driving forces behind this is the fact that the Europeans have negative reproductive growth rates with almost every European nation and the United States having negative growth for their Caucasian population. This has also led to an aging Caucasian population across much of the Western World. What is even of greater interest is that the birth rate world-wide is dropping and getting close to dropping below replacement rate of 2.3 births per woman. Fortunately, here in Israel the birth rate per woman has begun to rise, especially amongst the Jewish population while it is dropping amongst the Arab population. Among Israeli Jewish women, the TFR reached 3.16, surpassing for the first time in Israel’s history the Arab fertility rate, which fell to 3.11 as from data reported by Arutz Sheva. The world is changing, some places for the better, others, not so much. Fortunately, here in Israel, despite the threats and intermittent crises, the future is actually looking to be a surprisingly optimistic outlook. This will continue despite what the protesters say around the world simply because we tend to disregard them. Now if only the European busybodies would go home and tend to their own problems and stop creating more for us here in Israel.
