Beyond the Cusp

Crossroads

 

The world is spiraling perceivably out of control. Europe is reducing itself into an echo of its once dominance. Canada has begun her graceful exit from anything more than a footnote. Russia is desperately holding on to things from her periods past. China is the bursting powerhouse without an ample provider of direction or purpose. Japan is as she most often has been outside of World War II, a region which defies definition and insulated by her restrictive immigration policies. South America is still most often between periods of economic power followed by leftist folly bankrupting once powerful nations and eventually back to productivity only to sink once again. Argentina and Venezuela are two prominent examples. Cuba is relatively impotent with only one thing to offer, proximity to the United States. Mexico has about the same situation with slightly more open governance. The Far East sits in the shadow of China simply sleeping hoping not to catch the giant to the north’s attention, except for North Korea which is led by an unbalanced megalomaniac. Still, the most they could prove to be is a small blip before being crushed if they ever did attack anyone. This leaves three main powers, one established, one growing and one for the distant future. The established is, of course, the United States, the growing are the Islamic powers and the future power is central and southern Africa. All of these are currently swirling towards a series of collisions.

 

We thought the main front would once again be Europe, but that assessment required being reconsidered. Europe will be where the initial confrontations will come, but the secular left will simply turn over and surrender. Should there be a last stand for Christianity within Europe, it will come from the nations of Eastern Europe where being under the choking hold of Communism until around 1989, their freedom brought to them a return to their former religious beliefs and a reestablishing of the Eastern Orthodox Church. Just as the remains of the Roman Empire was the Eastern Roman Empire, which was also known as Byzantium or Byzantine Empire, Europe is once again split along a central line where Western Europe is sliding into a coma while Eastern Europe is still awakening from a long oppression. Will the confrontation be any different this time or will Eastern Europe prove just as incapable opposition to an Islamic wave attempting to take control of Europe. The immigrant influx of Muslims from northern Africa and Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan and other Middle East countries with oppressive governance is slowly consuming Western Europe where they are being welcomed without any controls or real opposition. The initial laying of the welcome mat was placed out by Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany who promised to take up to 800,000 refugees from the Middle East and was almost immediately inundated by waves of immigrants. As has been noted by ourselves and numerous others, the vast majority of these immigrants are men between 18 and 50 unaccompanied by wives or children. Such an influx historically has been called an invasion, not normal immigration.

 

Eastern European nations have wisely closed their borders and are only allowing immigrants who board trains which pass through their territories to ride straight on through and are refused from exiting the trains. Many, even the majority are heading for Germany and Sweden as these are the two nations with the highest support structure for unemployed people with minimal requirements as these immigrants are not seeking jobs, they seek the guaranteed good life compared to their former homes and imposing Islamic rule on their new homes. This would appear to be not an advantageous change as it would bring to their new homes the exact same systems which proved so disastrous to their former nations. Still, that is what they are comfortable with living under and it would provide them with the comfort of the imposing of a system which is close to identical to their former homes. Freedom is a burdensome formula under which to live as it makes each person responsible for their own survival and allows them to choose their own path and requires effort. This is what resulted from the Judeo-Christian ethic which brought the modern democratic nations into the industrial age and beyond making them the leaders in technology, science, and weaponry allowing Europe to be the most powerful force in the world opening up much of the road to a modern existence through their spreading over the entire planet during the Age of Discovery where the European nations established empires spreading throughout the world leaving a web of commerce and bringing great wealth to the Europeans. This spread technology from Europe to the rest of the world advancing many cultures from barely beyond hunter-gatherers or early agricultural age into the modern age providing these populations with great opportunities if they were able to receive education permitting their understanding.

 

After a pair of World Wars ravaged Europe, their age of colonization came to an end. The last remaining colonies slowly demanded and took their independence from their European masters. Since this end of the age, European society has largely refuted their Christianity and adopted the newest religion of secular humanism which places the onus for the destruction of the Earth on their own society and its use of fossil fuels. They believe in many cases that humankind is a blight on the planet and that the planet would be so much better off without people. This is represented by their negative reproduction rates which are well below replacement levels. This is the sign of a society which has entered into its death throes. This is also the main driving reasoning behind the opening of their borders to refugees in the hopes they will replace the children they never had in the work force. The problem is that a fairly large percentage of the immigrants are not coming to take jobs as much as to collect benefits while plotting to impose Islamic rule over Europe. This was what we had thought might lead to an initial confrontation between the Islamic conquerors and the European indigenous population in defending their free societies. The indigenous Europeans in Western Europe do not appear to be interested in retaining their former free society and are willing to allow the Islamic takeover of their nations providing it does not alter their life as the leaders. They are in for a great surprise as the leadership of these nations will be amongst the initial casualties when Islam versus European free society comes to a head. The struggle for retaining their freedom will be left to the small but not insignificant children, that is, providing they do not just sell out and join the Islamic push in order to go along to get along. They may be in for a surprise when their conversion reaches a point where they are tested. Our advice for those who believe this would be a wise choice, start now memorizing the Quran and attending the Mosque which is the largest within your city or area and familiarize yourselves with the teachings of the Imams.

 

Canada and the United States are just as vulnerable as is Europe to the immigration challenge. We recently read a disturbing article reporting on the progress of Islamist interests within Canada and their alignment with the far left in what will prove to be a self-defeating alliance for the far left. This same alliance exists throughout much of the free world including Europe, especially Britain and the European Union, the United States and Canada. There had been such an alliance in Israel and there are remnants of the effects of their joining in many leftist policies especially those who continue to support the “Two State Solution” which requires surrendering large portions of lands to the Palestinian Authority (PA) in exchange for promises of peace. This concept has lost much validity as many from the PA and others from within the society currently ruled by Fatah which controls the PA governance; actually, Mahmoud Abbas is the President for Life in the thirteenth year of his four-year term which began in 2005. Even the majority of those on the left and even the far leftists have realized that doing so would not bring peace and only serve to arm the Islamist interest with a permanent base from which to work to destroy Israel and murder her people through terrorism and launching rockets into Israeli cities. This was brought to the fore by Hamas after they took control of Gaza in a bloody coup replacing the PA after which they have worked steadily attempting to produce as much destruction onto any part of Israel which they could terrorize. This has led to a number of wars which Israel decided would be limited engagements which has only served to provide Hamas with the feeling of invincibility and empowered them even further. This has led to an ever-increasing support for Hamas which is reported to have topped 80% with the youth coming from their education system, more of an indoctrination system, leading the charge to destroy Israel and support the Islamist propaganda and their Islamist supremacist ideology. This has been behind the constant rioting and launching of incendiary balloons, kites and even attempted use of live birds such as the falcon in the picture below. The use and murder of such a beautiful and proud bird is just a further representation of the contempt for life held by these Islamist terrorists. One of the messages broadcast by Hamas run television includes a quote stating, “From the Al-Qassam Brigades to the Zionist soldiers: The Al-Qassam Brigades love death more than you love life.” This broadcast is just one of the times this message has been used as it boosts the followers often giving them the needed boost to commit suicide attacks against Israelis.

So, that concludes our quick and broad summary of the world which will be involved in any future conflict and now we will try to look into our crystal ball and look into the future. The threat of Islam is going to continue to grow. The world very well could be in the leading edge of their next attempt by Islam to enlarge their regions of control. Their initial conquest came from 622 AD through to 750 AD as shown in the top map reaching as far as Tours, France before being stopped by Charles the Hammer Martel. This was how their empire remained with their next evolution coming from within when a small tribe from northeastern Turkey known as the Ottomans which led to the Ottoman Empire shown in the middle map. The Spanish Inquisition was responsible for the pushing of Islam from the Iberian Peninsula in 1492, the same date as Columbus making his initial voyage to the New World. The Ottoman Empire replaced the Caliphate and faced a series of wars which ate away at their empire as shown in the bottom map and which was finally destroyed when they allied with the Austrian-Hungarian Empire and Germany in World War I. This led to the Mandate System and the carving up of the Ottoman Empire, Austrian-Hungarian Empire and Germany creating modern Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Northern Africa including Israel which was granted their set aside in the San Remo Conference which defined the Mandate System which was adopted by the League of Nations and then taken up for enforcement by Article 80 of the United Nations Charter.

Now back to the future and looking at what the next attempt at expansion of Islam will provide or what it might cost. There are a few points which need to be stated to provide more of a background which includes the United States mainly. The initial conflict began under the most isolationist President, Thomas Jefferson, who when facing ever higher tributes demands from the Barbary Pirates sent the Navy and Marines who forced an agreement ending the intercepting of United States shipping and most of the pirating and taking of sailors as slaves of European ships as well. After the war with England in 1812, the Barbary Pirates decided that the United States would be weakened and started taking sailors once more. This led to the Second Barbary Wars which again ended this practice. Then, as part of the Spanish American War, the United States faced attacks from the Moro natives in the Philippines which were Muslim. This revolt was put down by General Blackjack Pershing who was reputed, but unproven, to have used some questionable tactics. President George H. W. Bush (Bush I) engaged in a war with Saddam Hussein in Iraq War I in the 1990s. Then President George W. Bush (Bush II) engaged in wars with Islamic nations after the 2001 attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon in Afghanistan and once again in Iraq where this time Saddam Hussein was overthrown. Then there were the attacks during President Barack Obama continuing in Afghanistan and then including Libya after the Benghazi attack on the Consulate and the urging of the overthrow of Sunni governments in what was called the Arab Spring which more resembled the Arab Winter by the time it completely failed in Syria and Egypt ended up removing the resultant Muslim Brotherhood led government after the overthrow of President Mubarak. President Trump has continued with these interventions and aided the Kurds in their fight with the Islamic State. These have awakened the Islamic nations with two centers of power within Islam which are again fighting one another. This is another conflict between the main groups in Islam, the Sunni, and their longstanding opposition which consists of approximately 10% of Islam, the Shiites. The Sunni center of power is held in a loose alliance between Saudi Arabia and Egypt while the Shiite center of power is Iran which still sees themselves as the modern Persian Empire. Iran is allied with Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza, Hezballah in Lebanon and who are allied to back Bashir al-Assad in his civil war in Syria which was a result of the Arab Spring efforts of President Obama. Iran is also supporting the Houthi revolt to take control of Yemen. The Iranian aim has been to establish a Shiite Crescent across the Middle East using Iran, Syria and Lebanon so they have connections to the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea shown in the map below. Part of the Iranian tactic is to envelop Saudi Arabia from Iran to the north and Yemen to the south. Iran also is attempting to take control of two vital waterways, the Straight of Hormuz and the Straight of Bab-el-Mandeb. The first controls the shipping lane for most of the oil from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait while the second would control the exit from the Red Sea controlling the Suez Canal as well as the Israeli southern port of Eilat. This would provide Iran with the ability to cut off all trade between the Middle East and Europe as well as cutting off the European and Israeli shipping lanes to Asia.

Whether Islam attempts to once again gain lands by taking control of Europe and possibly then attempting to wrest control of Africa and then being enabled to take on the Americas, specifically the United States, will depend heavily on which nation ends up calling the shots. Should it be Saudi Arabia, then the main conflict will likely be within Europe while if it is Iran there is a definite possibility that it will become a world conflict. The initial conflict will be between Iran and Saudi Arabia which will center on the oil fields in the northeast of Saudi Arabia and the control of the Two Holy Cities of Mecca and Medina along the Red Sea coast in the west of Saudi Arabia. Should Iran take these two cities, they can attempt to declare that Shiite Islam is the ascending power in Islam and play themselves as the strong horse hoping to have the majority of Muslims to change from Sunni and adopt Shiite Islam. Such a conflict in Islam could deplete both sides to the point that neither would be capable of mounting any serious threat to the remainder of the world and Islam will return to rest for the foreseeable future. The Islamic leaders of Iran have an extremist and expansionist view of their place in the world which was expressed by the Supreme Leader Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini which has been carried forward by Supreme Leader Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamenei. Their visions of world conquest are probably considered to be insane and in the developed world, such concepts have been relegated to the trashcan of history. Unfortunately, in both Sunni and Shiite Islam, they believe the promise in the Quran that Islam must become the only religious belief held by every person on Earth. They believe that world conquest is still possible despite the complete failure to accomplish such a feat by even the most powerful empires in the past. This now viewed insane concept is not seen as such within Islam; to the believers this is the inevitable future of our world. Many an Imam in Islam is currently preaching that Islam is on the verge of their final push which will result in their finally realizing their inevitable prize, the world and every person within believing their version of Islam, be it Sunni or Shiite. For the record, there are numerous Muslims who do not believe or even care about world conquest. Many of these are at the forefront of the Islamic struggle to allow Islam to evolve and learn to coexist with others. One such leader is Egyptian President Sisi who has delivered speeches before the governing board and Imams who are the instructors at the leading university of Islamic thought, Al-Azhar University.

 

What is their struggle? There are two very different and separate streams of thought in Islam. These result because of the two very different visions written by Muhammad, with the first verses which were universalist in accepting others and coexistence written in Mecca and the supremacist and world conquest warlike writings in Medina. We give a short introduction into the reasons and there are a plethora of links within the comments including links to a Quran with the verses in chronological order all in our article and the comments at Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? Should the reformers succeed in having Islam return to the original writings in the Quran, the world will flourish and the many religions will all work in greater harmony. Should they fail, then there will be a constant state of conflict between Islam and everyone else. That may sound pessimistic, which it is, but just because it is pessimistic does not mean it is not a valid truth. Islam, as currently interpreted using what is called abrogation, where the newest verses overwrite the older verses making the Medina Quranic writings supreme over the earlier Mecca Quranic verses. This was used by the 10th century Islamic scholar Hibatullāh who listed two-hundred-thirty-seven instances of abrogation, with the verse 9:5, known as the so-called “Verse of the Sword”, which alone accounted for almost half of the abrogated verses. Later Quranic interpreters had disagreements with his findings and often with one another. If, instead of using abrogation the Muslims were to adopt instead an originalist view and interpretation of the Quran, then Islam would be able to exist in peace with the world. Until, if such is ever to be, Islam does away with abrogation adopting originalist Quranic verses, Islam will forever be at war with the rest of humankind. This actually has Biblical beginnings, which surprises many. Islam is said to be the religion founded by the generations tracing their origins to Ishmael. In Genesis Chapter 16 verses 11 and 12 we learn of Ishmael and the way he is described is how his prodigy will also be found to act, as is the way of the Old Testament. These two verses read as follows:


11 And the angel of the Lord said to her, “Behold, you will conceive and bear a son, and you shall name him Ishmael, for the Lord has heard your affliction.
12 And he will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be upon all, and everyone’s hand upon him, and before all his brothers he will dwell.”

This was the Biblical curse of a sort which was placed upon the descendants of Ishmael and it is one which has proven to have been validated by history. This also is something which does not bode well for the future. Islam, we must remember, is similar in one way to Judaism, both are religions which also have a complete political system defined for the adherents to follow. The Old Testament tells the Jews, the Israelites, that they would rule over the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, and from the Litani River to the Wadi of Egypt. These were to be our eventual final borders and we were to treat the stranger with respect as long as they lived in peace and obeyed the Noahic Code. We were to reside and serve Hashem and live our lives as an example and for as long as we lived an exemplary life, then we would live at peace. This would become possible once the Temple was built after King David’s reign with his son, King Solomon, tasked to build the Temple. Obviously, there were problems back then and everything collapsed. The rest is, as they say, history. What will be interesting is that the coming Great War, should that be the fate of the world, Israel will not be at its center and very possibly, if we are very careful and live as Hashem desires, we will not be even included in that coming disaster. Where this coming conflict will break out is difficult to predict. If we were pressed and had to choose such a point, we would think very likely the initial wars which lead to the coming horrors have already begun and surround Saudi Arabia. Then there are the infiltrations of Europe, Canada and starting in the United States. Of the Western World, the initial conflict started with the riots in Paris and across France, the terror attacks throughout Western nations, and the culture clashes which have led to an explosion of crimes against women with most being of a sexual nature. These could easily lead to vigilante actions which could escalate into a general societal state of warfare across Europe. Canada, we fear, will fall with barely a peep where the central west and northernmost territories possibly forming their own country. The United States is having its own problems currently and Islam would not be able to take over the United States through infiltration, as there would be a revolt against such politically. The so-called silent majority is a far larger section of the populace and would take control of the government to address any threat ending possibly the entrance of advents of Islam if this were required. But first, the United States must first survive its current divide between the leftist and the conservatives, particularly the Constitutionalists, often referred to as populists. Whatever the future, with any good fortune our little corner of the world will be left alone and ignored by any and all the possible violence, we have enough problems already. As for the rest of the world, well, we doubt the next great conflict will begin in China or anywhere within Asia, or at least that is our thoughts.

Where Will World War III be Initiated?

 

World War I was referred to at the time as the War to End All Wars. The horrific death toll was so great that people believed that the slaughter would impel humanity to act and end all war in the future. The League of Nations was crafted to be a place where all future disagreements between nations could be talked out rather than fought over. Well, this did not work out as expected and instead the precautions placed to prevent Germany from becoming the initiator of any war were the exact reasons, which caused the financial crisis in Germany, which in turn led to Hitler and World War II. The nuclear bombs dropped on Hiroshima, Nagasaki caused such horrific destructions and further lingering health issues, that it was believed that these would end all wars. Instead of large scale wars, the super powers fought wars through other nations called limited wars instead of wars which would encompass the entirety of the world and weapons as such would, they believed, be the end of civilization if not humankind as well. So, the first question we need address is, what is the possibility that there could ever be another World War, and if so, how, why and where will it originate. These are the questions that we are taking a stab at with our conjecture, suspicions, speculations and subliminal thoughts processes.

 

The first thing we need to do is find any nation or group of nations who either do not believe that nuclear weapons are as horrific as reputed or believe but could not care less. Actually, we do not need an entire nation to fall into these categories, only their top leadership is required providing the politics of the nation or nations in particular have little or no control or influence in changing their leadership or guiding their chosen path. These leaders also will need to not have much concern for the future of their people as long as their ideals and beliefs are furthered. There are certain political types and religious leaders who fit an extreme ‘ends justify the means’ attitudes. The first are often referred to as extremists, usually referred to as Fascists, Communists, Nazis and either extreme right or left. One relatively frequent theory coming from various conspiracy theorists, such as INFOWARS, which claim that the United States is following down the same path as what led to Nazi Germany except when America turns, it will be far worse in results than was World War II or even any imagination of the results of the consequential war which would result. Another theory, which has some relationship to reality, predicts that Islam will unify behind a prophetic figure and make their final push to complete the Quranic predictions that Islam will rule the world and all the people in the world will surrender to Allah. Followers of the Middle East or world news have heard repeatedly the theme from Iran that Israel will be destroyed. There was a period where numerous figures from the Iranian leadership were claiming that Israel would be destroyed within twenty-five years. Further, some of these leaders in Iran when they were asked about any Israeli response to an Iranian attack, often this was in reference to the claim that Israel is a one or two nuclear nation implying that is all it would take to destroy all Israel, stated that it would be worth the destruction of Iran to rid the world of Israel. Such comments should send shivers down the spines of rational people. Add to this that Iranian leaders have warned the United States that should they interfere or harm any Iranian free actions in the Middle East, specifically with their exporting of oil or supplies to their allies across the Middle East, they would respond by attacking Israel. They also implied that the United States might also be struck, but they stated in plain language that Israel would be struck should they feel impinged upon by the United States.

 

Still, the United States is far from becoming a threat to the world and Iran is not likely to actually attack any nation for the time being. This could change at any time, but there would be signs that things are in flux and thus be forewarned. Where there is a problem currently is the building friction between the flood of immigrants from Islamic nations where there is great turmoil and these immigrants are bringing their culture with them and building their own areas within European cities where they enforce Sharia and in some cases even authorities such as police and even firefighters require a large police escort when responding to fires. This has led to an increased presence of far right groups allying with the anti-immigrant emotions. This problem has surfaced in the United States recently with the police intervention into an Islamist compound holding children in New Mexico where the children were being trained, reputedly, to become school shooters and other forms of violence. The problem is far more concerning in Europe, especially in western and northern European nations. The friction between the two cultures in Europe could lead to more violent episodes which could lead to a tipping point where violence could result to such a degree over wide regions such that the police would be an inadequate response, and this could lead to the leader of such an inflicted nation to turn to the military to respond. The militaries have more and more been trained in suppression of civil strife as a preparation for just such instances. Still, the military is far better trained at something far more destructive, warfare. Calling out the military is a reaction which could lead to pushing things over the edge leading to open warfare within the nation, civil wars. The violence could spread from one nation to the next in a domino effect. What might trigger this is after one nation successfully brought a violent episode to an definitive end using the military, it would become a more acceptable response leading to people coming to expect such a response to almost any rising violence as has been witnessed in cities in Europe from time to time. Such violence has almost always led to the government responding with ever greater power utilized which has often led to using the military. This was evidenced by the response in the United States to the events which are called the Battle of Blair Mountain where the military was used to quash the coal miners strike which had become violent. There was the incident after which public opinion forced a change such that United States Marines or other military will not be placed along the border any time in the foreseeable future. Both of these incidents show that no matter the training, the military will do what it is designed to perform, as their job is to kill people and destroy things.

 

Shia vs Sunni

 

So, Iran has to bring more members of Islam over to their form as currently the Shiites make up under ten percent of all Islam. They are centered in Iran, southern Iraq, Bahrain (though under Sunni rule) and northwestern Saudi Arabia. Europe will probably fall to Islam but it might take close to a century for this to finalize. It is possible that the Europeans could all collect in Britain or Norway and make their stand there but for the most part, Europe is facing a diminishing native population which is becoming ever more ripe for foreign takeover. Those who do not wish to become Muslims will probably flee to the United States, Canada or elsewhere in the Americas. Even many of the Jews will head for the Americas with possibly as high as 35% to 45% going to Israel, maybe even less. The United States appears to be on the verge of a civil war but this is highly unlikely. Even should President Trump be reelected, which is a definitive probability, there may be massive rioting in many major metropolitan areas, but these are not the regions where President Trump has swarms of supporters. If requested, President Trump would provide the stricken cities with assistance though in most cases the mayors will simply ask the governor to provide National Guard, something which tends to quiet people down rapidly. One does not have to wonder very hard why the sight of armored vehicles and soldiers with real fully automatic assault rifles tends to put a damper on rioting. China is another spot we did not mention. Currently China has a dangerous overpopulation of young unmarried males and a severe shortage of women. They could partially alleviate the problem through being simply selective at their border with North Korea and allow women through, especially younger women. North Korea will not be a problem as China realizes that should North Korea actually carry through on any of Kim Jong Un’s nuclear threats that China would receive a fair amount of spillover if not being actually struck for not curbing their rabid neighbor. Asia will remain rather passive with the sole possible problem being Pakistan and India, which would go no further than Pakistan and the northern two thirds of India. World War III may come to movie theaters and end up on Netflix for a while then cable and finally we’ll watch it on commercial television, so please when such a movie comes out, don’t tell us how it ends. The last World War III movie we saw, which was almost as good as the book, was On the Beach (the original) which has a remake which we have not seen. Let’s hope that the movie is not blocked by MGM as it is in Israel. As long as World War III remains a theme for science fiction or horror movies such as Godzilla, the nth remake, then we will be quite pleased. Should World War III catch us all unprepared, we attempt to post our reaction and surprise for as long as possible.

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.
