Israel Never Placed a Single Arab in a Refugee Camp

There is this political accusarial legend that Israel placed hundreds of thousands of Arab into refugee camps. The simple and truthful answer to this accusation is that it is categorically false. The first evidence is that there is not a single Arab refugee camp in any area under full Israeli control. That includes every inch of Israel inside the Green Line (pre-Six Day War Armistice Lines) as well as none within Area C, the region of the Shomron under Israeli civil and military control as per the Oslo Accords. Another interesting side fact is that the idea that the entirety of the Shomron (Jordanian regions called the West Bank) belongs to the Arabs and was the state of Palestine is a complete fabrication. The region was originally intended to be part of Israel but was lost to Jordan during the 1948 War to Annihilate the Jews and end the Jewish State of Israel which resulted from six Arab Armies and a number of Arab militias attacking Israel the morning of May 15, 1948, the first morning of Israeli existence. Jordan renamed it West Bank as using its Biblical names of Judea and Samaria were far too Jewish and Shomron was really not all that much less Jewish, so they invented the West Bank, as it is the western banks of the Jordan River. Jordan lost control of these lands in the Six Day War as Israel liberated their lands from Jordanian control. Under International Law, all the lands west of the Jordan River belong to Israel and currently there exists a semiautonomous region which is ruled by the Palestinian Authority in Area A and Area B of the disputed region while Israel retained complete control of Area C. All of the Arab refugee camps are either in Gaza which is currently ruled by Hamas or in the region under Palestinian Authority control. The remainder of the Arab refugee camps are in Lebanon, Jordan and Syria, all established and under Arab rulers. No Arab refugee camp was ever established in Israel. All Arabs who were within the region inside the Green Line were granted full Israeli citizenship while their neighbors and relatives who fled as instructed by the Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini who called for the Arabs to leave the Jewish State so the invading Arab armies could simply slaughter everyone on their way to victory and their intended celebration on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea as they finished off the last of the Jews driving them into the sea. The Arabs’ intent was stated well 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.”

 

Every Arab refugee camp from this war was established by the Arab nations as they forced their brothers and sisters, fellow Arabs, into makeshift camps of tents surrounded by barbed wire with armed guards to prevent anyone escaping. This was done in order to play the refugee card demanding that Israel take in these Arabs and thus inundate the Jewish State with Arabs making them a majority and ending Israel at the first elections. This never materialized and they have kept these Arabs, many actually related to people living in the same area outside the camps but they are not permitted to relocate and start their lives anew. After the armistices were all signed and set, the Arab nations proceeded to drive their Jews from within their countries over the ensuing decade. The total numbers which relocated in Israel exceeded eight-hundred-thousand Jews. Remarkably, not one Jewish refugee camp was formed and Israel never demanded that the Arab world take back their Jews. Instead, these Jews were welcomed and integrated into the Israeli society where they make up approximately half of the Jewish population of Israel. This fact also lays bare the lie that the Jews of Israel all came from Russia, the Americas and Europe as half of the Jews in Israel origins are from Arab lands in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) regions. Facts are funny things, when people hear them they immediately react stuttering an answer of, “No! Really?” The only thing one can respond is, “Yes, really.” Another little fact is there never was any Arab state or any other state named Palestine. Palestine is an adoption of the Roman renaming of the region after they dispersed the Jews presumably to wipe the Jew from the face of the earth. Destroying the Jews is far from an original idea as it started in ancient Egypt, was also attempted by the Assyrians with a modicum of success, then the Persians gave it a go followed by the Greeks, Romans, Caliphate, Crusaders, Arab Empire, the Ottomans, the British and today the Arab and much of the Muslim worlds. These are simply the attempts made which include the region which makes up what was ancient Israel.

If one were to ask, what about in the remainder of the world. We will start from Russia and work our way westward and include some from southward. First thing is that all of the above can be included in this list as well, as they were not limited to simply the region of ancient Israel but included their entire empires. Russia made a number of attempts both under the Czars who wrote the fake manuscript, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” in order to make an excuse for their war on the Jews. This manuscript has since been translated into Arabic, Farsi and other Arabian languages and sells well in much of the Muslim world being presented once again as fact and proof that the Jews have evil machinations for controlling the world. The pogroms and purification as well as the Inquisition and finally the Holocaust were all resulting from the Church being used by governments to focus hatred and blame for all calamities on the Jews so the ruling class could shift all blame from themselves. The Arab world would use different methods for persecuting Jews. The first is the Jiyza, a special tax placed on non-Muslims, sometimes even just Jews leaving everyone else free from this form of protection racket. The Jiyza was paid to recompense the Muslims for providing for the non-Muslims’ safety. If you did not pay the Jiyza, then it would become known that you were an open target for thefts or even murder. When the Jews or others had been taxed by the Jiyza to the point where they did not have sufficient wealth to steal through this method, this was when the other form of oppression was used, forced conversion. The non-Muslims, specifically Jews, were given the choice of converting to Islam or being beheaded. Those who refused were often beheaded on the spot and other times they would make a public spectacle of beheading the Jews or non-Muslims. Those who did convert would need to pay very particular attention to not break any of the rules of the Islamic faith as that would often mean that your conversion was not done in good faith and you would be executed as an Apostate. That brings us across the Atlantic Ocean to the Americas where we will only represent the United States. Jews have been discriminated against through the years into the 1960’s when the Civil Rights Movement ended much of such discrimination. Still, there is one seminal event where Jews were targeted directly under General Grant with his infamous General Order No. 11 of 1862 in which he dispossessed the Jews of their property and expelled them from the region under his control which included Tennessee, Mississippi, and Kentucky. President Lincoln nullified the order but by the time it reached Washington D.C. and the President reviewed this one order amongst all he had on his plate at the time and the rescinding order reached General Grant, who some rumor he sat on that communication for long enough for the order to be completely carried out, the damage was dome for the most part if not completely. There is at least one nation whose Jews were never targeted or subjected to humiliations or other mistreatment, and that honor belongs to Japan. Even during World War II Japan refused the Nazi orders to murder their Jews or turn them over to German forces. This would bring us back to eastern Russia, so hope you enjoyed our little jaunt around the globe.

 

The above also answers the question as to why there are so few Jews in the world, a mere fraction not quite reaching to 0.2% (that is 0.002 of the world population). The honest question would be how there are any Jews at all when they were treated, as we often point out, exactly as were the Carthaginians by Rome in order to destroy them and remove them from history. It worked against Carthage but the Jews had a secret, the Torah. Torah became the center of our communities and gave us our sense of being and belonging while we awaited our promised return to our beloved homelands. We have been permitted our return and are not persecuting or retaining Arabs with refugee camps. All of the refugee camps were established in Arab controlled regions making those who obeyed the demands of Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini into prisoners of their own people who refused to permit them to integrate into their lands. When one looks at a map of the Arab world compared to tiny Israel (Israel is approximately the size of New Jersey) and remembers that Israel took in over eight-hundred-thousand Jews from across that very same Arab world, it boggles the mind that the Arabs with all their empty space demand that Israel also accept their refugees (see map below). Instead of accepting the responsibility for their self-inflictive actions, the Arab world blames Israel and equates Israel with Jew. Then they have investigated literally tens of millions, if not hundred or even billions, of dollars and Euros in propaganda blaming the Jewish State for the reason that anything which their lands lack economically as well as for these refugees which have increased from the original six-hundred-fifty-thousand to somewhere over five-million who remain after generations in the camps. The Arab refugees are not even treated by the United Nations, as are all other refugees around the world. While other refugees are under the jurisdiction of the UNHCR – The UN Refugee Agency but are given their own special United Nations refugee agency just for the Arab refugees, UNRWA – United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East. While all other refugees are settled as rapidly as conditions allow and their children are not considered to be refugees thus all refugees are only for a single generation, the Arab refugees pass along their status as refugees to the children and their children’s children on into posterity thus not only prolonging the suffering lasting generation after generation, but this also has swelled the ranks of refugees into the millions with no end in sight. This has been the result of the Arabs forcing their brothers and sisters to wallow in poverty being denied rights restricting their available occupations, if even permitted work, denied ownership of land or homes, inadequate facilities in many of the camps, being targeted in Syria by Assad with every sort of weapon, and other degradations beyond any form of decency or respect. Then they place the blame for their actions upon Israel, the nation which granted every Arab within her borders full citizenry and rights as equals in the Jewish state.

The other problem which has also been thrust upon Israel is the supposed Arab Palestinians who claim they were thrown out of their nation of Palestine by the Jews. As already mentioned, there never was any nation called Palestine, it is simply the name given by the Romans to the region also known as southern Syria. When the British used the word Palestinian, they were referring to the Jews and when they wished to speak about the Arabs residing in the same region, they were called Arabs, surprisingly enough. Palestine, as a region, included all of Israel, Gaza, the Shomron and all of Jordan. When the decision was made to form an Arab state and a Jewish state, the British used the Jordan River to divide the lands as the British laughingly called evenly. Despite the fact that Jordan was formed in 78% of the Mandate lands and Israel in a mere 22%, the Zionist Congress agreed to the partition and that was supposed to be the end of the problem. When Mahmoud Abbas claims he merely wants the 22% of the lands of the British Mandate which he is entitled to, most of the world interprets that to mean the old Jordanian West Bank and possibly Gaza. That is not what Abbas means. His concept of 22% is the region which was not granted to the Arabs as Jordan, or simply all of Israel. They do not even hide that fact as their protesters and their rallies in the Palestinian Authority areas and Hamas’s Gaza always chant, “From the River to the Sea, Palestine must be free.” The Arabs have never given up on Azzam Pasha’s dream of, “a momentous massacre in history that will be talked about like the massacres of the Mongols or the Crusades.” Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Iran take this one step further and call for the extermination of the Jews on the entirety of the Earth. This is also a popular theme in Jordan, much of Egypt, most of Turkey, many Saudis and throughout the rest of the Arab and parts of the Islamic world. We wish we could say this was the limit to this hatred, but it is not. There are many around the world who also desires the end of Israel and even the eradication of the Jews. These ideas have been gaining traction on the political left, mostly the far left, but it will not remain there. Should this poison infect the entirety of the world, Israel will serve a purpose she was denied by the British when they caved to Arab demands under threats of Arabs rising up against the British throughout the MENA region to prevent the Jews from Egypt escaping to Israel in order to escape the Nazi death machine. Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini spent most of World War II in Berlin or reviewing the Islamic brigades he assisted in forming to hunt down undesirables in the Balkans. This resulted in the deaths of many Jews and Christians and a war between these SS divisions and the Serbians who resisted the Nazis. This was one of the services the Mufti provided the Nazis. He also hosted radio broadcasts which targeted the Arab world and Iran and resulted in a number of uprisings against the British during the war. The Mufti also requested that the Nazis, after they would conquer Jerusalem and the Middle East, to please carry out a Final Solution of the Jews residing across the Middle East. There is one last factoid which needs mention, the yellow marking designating a Jew used by the Nazis was not an idea of their origins, it was first implemented by Umayyad Caliph Umar II in early 8th century. The practice was reissued and reinforced by Caliph Al-Mutawakkil (847–861), subsequently remaining in force for centuries. The misconception that the Arab and Muslim world became anti-Semitic copying the Nazis is untrue as they required absolutely no assistance and if anything, the Nazis got many of their concepts from the Islamic world including the yellow armbands demarking Jews. Christians often had a different color demarking them, as did Hindus and Buddhists under Islamic rule. The untruths get so much play for a very simple reason, ignorance. Now Ignorance is not stupidity, it simply means a lack of knowing something or lacking a proper education. When it comes to history, especially anything dating back before man walked on the moon (facetious comment), all too many of the youth, those under say, forty, have little knowledge of history and as you go deeper into history, the greater the lack of information. This is even true for all too many Jews which is unforgivable as our own history over the last four-thousand years plus is sufficient to provide a general knowledge of history, but many Jews have never actually read the Torah or anything concerning their own histories. In closing, there is the famous statement by George Santayana, “Those who do not remember their past are condemned to repeat their mistakes.”

Poland Finds Poland the Innocent Victim of Jewish Death Camps

 

The Polish Holocaust Law is no longer a simple signature away from law; Polish President Andrzej Duda has autographed the legislation making it the law. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has not objected giving the law his silent consent as he invited Israeli journalists so as to be allowed to explain to them how the law was righteous and the Polish completely innocent victims just as were the Jews under the Nazi occupation. What the Israeli journalists ended up witnessing were two simultaneous demonstrations urging Duda to sign the law which some compared to Germany in the 1930’s after Kristallnacht, the night of broken glass when the point of no return was crossed by the German people. The nationalist demonstration was the larger of the two and was punctuated by chants which included rants such as, “Take off (your) kippah (yarmulke in Polish), Sign the law!” “Enough Jewish lies!” “Jews try to rob Poland!” “Stop Jewish aggression in Poland!” Do any of these have a familiar sounding echo to you and remind you of previous times in numbers of places throughout history where the only difference was the name Poland changed to the nation in question? Such were the chants in Nazi Germany, Inquisition Spain, Purified France, Martin Luther’s Germany (not to pick on Germany), the Czar’s Russia, Mousseline’s Italy, Hadrian’s Rome, the Hellenists’ Greece, Pharos’ Egypt, Nebakanezzer’s Babylon, Haman’s Persia and on and on throughout history. Yes, we Jews remember these chants as they have always signaled it was time to grab your bags and get out of town as ignoring such threats has always proved foolish if not deadly.

 

We are more than willing to grant that many or at least some of those who supported this law are not anti-Semitic and are simply more upset with innocent Poles being tarnished by the Nazis and their horrific history. We wish to be optimistic that the main driving force of this law was to differentiate between the majority of the Polish people during World War II and their Nazi oppressors who victimized numerous Polish who fought against the Nazi presence. The problem arises when we consider the reports of such hateful rhetoric by the majority of the demonstrators and the seeming backing for this law seemingly arising from the anti-Semites. Let us state right up front that we do not believe that the average polish person is an anti-Semite or that any more than a minority hold anti-Semitic beliefs. Where the frightening truth invades our hopes was when referencing the Anti-Defamation League Global Anti-Semitism Survey shows some disturbing numbers for Poland. Their 2015 survey of Poland, the last time a full survey was conducted, shows that Poland has a population of approximately thirty-one-million and of those approximately eleven million hold anti-Semitic feelings which is thirty-seven percent. The survey has a breakdown by gender, age, and the percentages in answers to the survey questions themselves. The highest response was sixty-one percent agreement on the question “Jews still talk too much about what happened to them in the Holocaust.” At the other end, a mere fourteen percent responded agreement with the statement, “Jews are responsible for most of the world’s wars.” The high agreement with the first kind of explains partly the reactions and force behind the new law.

 

The Polish Holocaust Law outlaws blaming Poland as a nation for Holocaust crimes committed by Nazi Germany. This includes stating that such places as Auschwitz-Birkenau, Treblinka, Sobibor, Majdanek, Belzec and Chelmno as well as numerous camps built in Poland so that the prisoners could be worked to death out of the public eye; this policy was called Vernichtung durch Arbeit (annihilation through work), and large numbers of non-Jewish Poles were held in these camps which is one of the facts being pressed during the discussions over the Polish Holocaust Law (see map below). No longer may anyone refer to these camps as being Polish without facing fines and possible imprisonment. Exchanges by two Polish authors on a TV broadcast dealing with the new law were jesting when it was stated, “Jewish death camps” followed by the mocking question asking, “who actually did run the crematoria?” Even presumably joking, such language is beyond the pale. Once these phrases were aired on Poland Television, they were immediately picked up by numerous others, anti-Semites and others who simply believed that these were perfectly harmless jokes as they were permitted to be televised which give things an air of respectability. At the aforementioned nationalist rally, some of the speakers stated, “So my daughter would need to learn in her school that Poles killed Jews in Jedwabne, is not it scandalous?! Jedwabne lies, that baloney!” and “It all is about money. Jews would like to rob us of everything what we has build here after 1945.” and “Those who came here now under the red flags and in Israel’s interest, to attack Polish patriots.” These comments are counter to the records in history. Jedwabne was the location where three-hundred Jewish villagers burned alive by a group of their neighbors in Poland after gathering them in a barn for a meeting in 1941 after the war. These were former residents of Jedwabne who had survived the camps and ghettos and other efforts of the Nazis. Making matters even more serious, Jedwabne was just one as was Kielce Pogrom on July 4, 1946 where over twenty Jews were murdered by a mob which included many officials which became obvious when authorities indicted commander of the Kielce Office of the Security Service, Major Wladyslaw Sobczynski, and the Chief of Police, Colonel Wiktor Kuznicki, as well as his deputy, Major Kazimierz Gwiazdowicz; of the three, only Kuznicki received a one year sentence, while the other two were acquitted. Further information can be found about the Polish cities of Bial, Kielce, Krakow, Lublin, Lodz, Rzeszow and Warsaw in the PDF report “Patterns Of Anti-Jewish Violence In Poland, 1944-1946” by David Engel.

This law will also make references to these incidents as Polish illegal as the law will be enforced as a means of relegating all of Polish violence against the Jews forbidden speech. Everyone who has ever pointed to the Concentration Camps being in Poland knew and meant that these were built at the insistence of the Nazis, run by the Nazis, and the murdering was committed largely by the Nazis and the Polish were also victims of the war having had their nation invaded from both ends, one by the Nazis and the other by the Communists. This bred a great hatred of both the Nazis and the Communists in the Polish people, something which continued after World War II when Poland came under Communist occupation and rule. The catch is that there were a fair number who blamed the Jews for the Communist takeover of Poland after the war. By this law, making any reference to the location as an identifying characteristic of any of the Nazi Ghettos, Concentrations Camps and Murder Camps will be punishable by fines and even imprisonment. By fiat, the Polish government has made all the locations on the above map located in some alternate universe in a place called “Not Poland” and in this universe; it is evil to claim otherwise. This law applies to all whether polish or visitor. This has already cost Poland the tourism where Israeli high school students were brought to Poland and were given classes and lectures about the horrors of the Holocaust. As of now, references to the Holocaust as happening in these camps on Polish ground would place the teachers in Polish prison. These trips have already been suspended and are unlikely to ever be resumed. One can also bet that a great number of Jews worldwide will now avoid Poland believing it to be anti-Semitic or, at the very least, unwelcoming to Jews. The avoiding of Poland will be strongest amongst the Jews who lost their families in the camps, specifically the camps in Poland.

 

There is another application of this law which might come to be used in a political manner. The Polish might decide to also apply the law to any political individual who mentions in some way the relationship between Poland and the locations of the Exterminations and Work Concentration Camps and the Ghettos. Such references would more likely be made by Israeli politicians thus should an anti-Israel, anti-Zionist or especially an anti-Semitic leader come to power in Poland, they might attempt to use this law against Israeli politicians who made mention of the camps being located in Poland, and especially if they implied Polish participation in the construction or having turned over Jews to the Nazis and other forms of cooperation. We in Israel are very aware of those in Poland who bravely fought the Nazis and the Righteous Amongst the Nations from Poland who harbored and saved Jewish lives, but we also have painful reminders of those Polish who aided the Nazis in their efforts. Such a use of the law to indict foreigners under this law should they ever step within the borders of Poland will surely result in many deciding that a visit to Poland under any circumstance to unfavorably risky. This law will definitely drive a wedge between Poland and Israel if not others as well. If this law is ever applied to one who referenced Poland and the location of the Nazi camps and the treatment of the Jews, then Poland will become a place which many will find too dangerous to visit. This law will bring Poland only evil and bad times will lay ahead. The politicians who passed this law and President Andrzej Duda along with Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki will rue their complicity in this law as time passes. This is a dark day for Poland and does nothing to change the facts about the Concentration Camps and the Ghettos forced upon them by the Nazis. Still, there did exist some degree of Polish cooperation with the Nazi occupiers and that cannot be altered by or erased by or otherwise made different or to somehow disappear by passing a law making their mention illegal in Poland. If anything, this law reminds us of an old saying, “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.” which comes from Hamlet by Willian Shakespeare. In this case, we would have to say, The Poles doth protest too much, methinks.

What if the United States Does Not Respond?

 

The threats abound all around the globe. Let’s start here with Saudi Arabia and Egypt, along with more minor states such as the UAE, Bahrain and, in a pinch, Jordan are in serious dispute with Oman, thus with Iran and Turkey plus potentially Russia. Syria is a whirlpool of conflicts with more sides than one can reasonably figure with Bashir al-Assad as the so-called President of Syria being protected by Iran, who is also fighting a proxy war in Yemen in order to surround Saudi Arabia, and Hezballah with assistance of air power from Russia and funds from Qatar as one power; the Islamic State as a diminished but still dangerous threat; al-Nusra allied with other al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood terror fighters aim to defeat and replace al-Assad and rule Syria; the Kurds who are allied throughout Iraq as well as Syria and only wish to make a new nation of Kurdistan and wish to be left alone and have received aid from the United States in secret; Turkey who claim to be fighting the Islamic State but are actually fighting the Kurds as Erdogan has an ethnic hatred for the Kurds who are the new Armenians in the politic of Turkey who would ally with Iran if a general war were to break out in the Middle East. This defined the current mess in the Middle East (diagrammed below) without Israel who could easily be considered an enemy of every groups mentioned above with the possible exception of Russia who would remain neutral or aid the Arabs quietly.

There is another area of conflict much overlooked by the world and the media apparently refuses to comment except if an exceptional distress and disaster strikes the region, and that is a swath across Africa, which has been named the African Transition Zone. This area (pictured below) stretches from the Atlantic Ocean through Mali, Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad, the two Sudans (Sudan and South Sudan), Ethiopia, and Somalia to the Indian Ocean. The zone strikes across Africa just south of the Sahara Desert reaching into the heart of the continent and delineates the borders between the Islamic world and the worlds of Christian and Animist Africa and all the rest of the non-Islamic peoples. This is a war of terrorism and slaughters trying to drive the non-Muslims from their homes and take the territories after which the war will continue southward until the entirety of the continent has been washed clean and made wholly the realm of Islam. The violence and murdering will not cease until one side has vanquished the other or Islam turns within itself and discovers a means by which it purges the Quran of verses such as those we posted yesterday and instead follow the verses of the Quran written in Mecca where coexistence and the goodness of humankind was the theme rather than the violence of the verses written in Medina which we explained in very simple means and little depth here. This is “a war between civilizations,” “between the civilization based on the Bible and between the civilization based on the Koran exactly as described by Professor Moshe Sharon. He was close as that is the main war as far as the Western World is concerned, but the reality is it is a war of one civilization, Islam, as they have declared war on the entire world, it is simply that the world is refusing to believe the truth, the fact of what they all face and they have a choice, face it together and prevail or fight it separately and they will each fall one nation at a time, one culture at a time and one civilization at a time until there is only one civilization; Islam. That is the reality which need be learned.

There is a war starting across Europe and reaching to the United States. As far as Western World and its culture are concerned, this war began with Israel, though the Western World is doing everything to deny this fact. Europe used to distrust everything Israelis said and ignored when the Israelis warned that there would come a time when Europe would face the same threat and it was really sad that it would take this for Europe to understand what Israel faced. The Israelis were wrong. The Europeans, particularly Western Europe, or Old Europe, are facing the initial stages of terrorism and the terror war (map below denotes terror attacks since 9/11) and they still doubt Israel claiming that Israel is insincere about peace and this is the cause of the problem. The Europeans are blinded by their continued anti-Semitism, which has begun to spread itself into everyday European life, and many Jews are beginning to realize that they have no home in Europe and that it is time to return to their true home, Israel. Yes, a fair number are choosing the United States and will find that home too will become less than comfortable over time. As terror increases, the rest of the peoples will initially blame the Jews making the claim that the entire conflict began because the Jews would not return the lands they purportedly stole from the Palestinian Arabs. This ignores the millennium and a half war which began as the Arab Muslims spread from the Arabian Peninsula to conquer the Middle East followed by Northern Africa (MENA) and have made three attempts before the present one to conquer Europe and are still attempting to conquer India, another conflict which could turn nuclear between India and Pakistan, so note this as another point of potential open and serious warfare. The Islamic warfare in Europe will continue politically and physically through terrorism and the courts with their claims of Islamophobia and hate crimes as their means of enforcing Sharia, the subjugations of the European societies. Additionally, there is also a Province, Xinjiang Province that has approximately fifty-percent Muslim of which virtually all are of the Uyghur ethnicity, which has its origins in Turkey.

The final nation causing turmoil in the world is North Korea whose leader, Kim Jong-un, has continued testing and developing missiles and nuclear weaponry. The North Koreans have been working coordinating with the Iranians with each nation testing weapons technology for the other when it suits skirting sanctions. This has led to suspicions that Iran has tested some missile technologies in the past for North Korea while North Korea has likely tested nuclear weapons for Iran. Of course, each nation, Iran and North Korea, have conducted their most sensitive technologies themselves. The one item on each of these belligerent nations to-do list is the conquest of the world, or at least large swaths of area and both have an overriding hatred for the United States. This hatred could drive them to attack other nations so as to force the United States to act. In the case of Iran it might be a nuclear weapons attack on Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Israel or make an assault upon a smaller target such as Bahrain, UAE, or Oman which would cause Saudi Arabia to defend any of these nations as they are all members of the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) which is an economic and mutual defense pact. North Korea has often made direct threats to destroy South Korea, Japan and/or the Philippines. These three have direct defense pacts with the United States. North Korea, when they say destroy, they mean they would use either overwhelming conventional weapons or nuclear weapons alone or in combination with conventional weapons in order to annihilate the entirety of the lands leaving the ruins relatively to completely uninhabitable. They do not mean conquest in the normal sense, they honestly mean to completely eradicate the cities and thus strip the remains of any and all wealth, which remains to continue the rule of the Kim family.

 

Should the violence erupt to the point that the world sits up and takes attention and every eye turns to Washington D.C. to watch for the coming action of the United States, one must wonder how the world would react if the Congress demanded that the President sit this war out or face impeachment and the President decided not to test the Congress and ordered the Pentagon to stand down. This is the big question, what if when World War III breaks out with everybody pointing their weapons at everybody else and only a select few nations are spared threats, direct or otherwise, and the United States is not under threat or targeted directly. This was the case at the beginning of World War I where the Austria-Hungarian Empire, Germany and the Ottoman Empire went to war against the Empire of France, British Empire, Russian Empire and Japan, yes, Japan. That pretty much was the entire world outside of parts of the Americas and much of Asia outside of the areas under control of Japan. The United States sat back watching as the continent of Europe drew lines in trenches across the Eastern and Western fronts and fought across the lands included in MENA controlled by the Ottoman Empire against the French and British colonial holdings. Even Arab tribes broke from their Ottoman Turkish overlords to fight with the British, as did the Jews of the British territories in the Middle East, all for promises from the British and the French. They were double-crossed as the British and French had already made arrangements reaching an understanding known as the Sykes-Picot Treaty, which divided up the entirety of the MENA lands, as well as redrawing the lands that were the Austria-Hungarian Empire. Also reached was the San Remo Agreement, which formalized the Balfour Declaration.

 

World War I, the Great War, began on July 28, 1914, and it was not until after the sinking of the Lusitania on May 7, 1915, that the United States first considered entering the war as they finally declare war on Germany on April 6, 1917, and later on the Austria-Hungarian Empire on December 7, 1917. World War I ended on November 11, 1918. The United States entered World War one three years after it began and the war ended a little over a year and a half later and only about a year after they declared war against all the entities engaged in the war. World War II was not all that different as it began on September 1, 1939, and ended on September 2, 1945, while the United States only entered the war after Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. The odds were a little better this time around, as the United States entered the war two year and two months after the start and the war concluded just under four years later. One can only wonder whether the United States would have ever entered World War II at all or how much longer had it taken had they not been attacked, another year, two, three, when the Nazis and Japanese closed in on the Americas? That is the question, when would the United States enter the next World War? Even the wars with the Barbary Pirates was only entered by the United States after their shipping had been under attack and the price paid for protection was raised too high that war was the more affordable option. That was the first time the United States warred with Islam. There were two Barbary Wars. The third war the United States had with Islam was in 1911 in the Philippines fighting the Morro Tribes as a result of the Spanish American War; their descendants are the ones fighting the Philippine government today on Mindanao.

 

So, what does the world do if the United States decides not to react to an attack on one of their allies? The one thing we can believe is that should the Americans sit any such attack out that every enemy of the United States will feel free to attack whomever they please and the world will erupt into complete and total chaos with nobody looking over their shoulder for the United States to act. They will have shown a total lack of concern and that will be taken as a go signal by every aggressor worldwide. Eventually the Americans will enter, but how many will have died before that happens. These are unpleasant considerations which must be addressed by a world on the edge, a world threatening to fall beyond the cusp.
