Two States for One People Solution

 

The world through governments, leaders, politicians, statesmen, reporters and editorialists all tout the “Two States for Two People” as the agreed upon mantra for the solution of the Arab Palestinian-Israel Conflict. As an example, under the heading “What is the two-state solution?” New York Times journalist Max Fisher defined the two principles as being the same: “The two-state solution would establish an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel — two states for two peoples.” Would but such be true the conflict would have very long ago been settled. Unfortunately, this is the side taken by only one of the sides in the debate, the Israelis. The Palestinian Arab leadership has a very different set of parameters for a solution. Perhaps a short list of their favorites would be in order. There is their “River to the Sea, Palestine must be free” solution in which there is one Arab state named Palestine founded upon the graves of over six-million dead Israeli Jews. Even then the Arab Palestinians would have another set of problems, what to do with these Jewish bodies and what to do with the Jewish bodies which have been interred within these borders throughout history back into antiquity. One need understand that when the Arabs claim there must not be one Jew on their precious and pure lands that includes on top, alive or dead, or beneath it no matter how long dead. When Israel surrendered Gaza they were forced to reinter their dead which only added to the calamity and sociological shock suffered by the Jewish communities which were uprooted even unto their dead friends and relatives. Imagine being forced from your home, your place of work being destroyed and having to dig up friends and family from their resting places and rebury them locating them sometimes a great distance from where they resettled making their graves now difficult to visit and tend. That was part of the horror of the plan to solve everything by simply giving the Arab Palestinians the Gaza Strip so they could prove how they could be productive and live peaceably beside Israel. Simply stated, that experiment was a dismal failure.

 

The New York Times once again in an article, “The Two-State Solution: What It Is and Why It Hasn’t Happened,” would have one believe that the Palestinian Authority government fully supports the idea of “Two States for Two People” solution to the conflict with Israel. But what do Arab Palestinian leaders have to say on the Two State Solution? Back in July 2011, Senior Palestinian Official Nabil Shaath slammed the French peace initiative because it called on them to recognize the Jewish State, so he told ANB TV that the French Initiative had,

reshaped the issue of the ‘Jewish state’ into a formula that is also unacceptable to us — two states for two peoples. They can describe Israel itself as a state for two peoples, but we will be a state for one people. The story of ‘two states for two peoples’ means that there will be a Jewish people over there and a Palestinian people here. We will never accept this — not as part of the French initiative and not as part of the American initiative.

Additionally Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas also was quoted in 2011 stating, “I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. I will never recognize the Jewishness of the state, or a ‘Jewish state.’” Both of these were statements directly contradicted what French President Nicolas Sarkozy stated in 2012 where he clearly underscored this difference between the statements made by Palestinian Authority (PA) leadership and the generally accepted beliefs of the Western World when he posited,

It is not enough to have two states; there must be two states for two nations. I know very well that there are two ways to destroy Israel: from without and from within. This is why the two-state solution is not enough. We need to have two states for two separate nations. One for the Jewish people and one for the Palestinians.

There is an additional slander which claims that Israeli complaints about the PA instigating violence have no basis in credibility. This has been the mantra of many reporters, editorialists, and largely European political leaders. This can be proven ridiculous simply by playing this now infamous video of Mahmoud Abbas and others speaking in the language nobody outside of a select few Westerners are capable of translating, Arabic (see videos below). These two videos are but a small example of the horrific statements almost always stated in Arabic knowing full-well that the European and American leftist and mainstream medias will pretend they are unable of making heads or tails of such statements only quoting that which these leaders of the Arab Palestinians feed them in English. We wish we could attribute this to their being lazy except with the proof of what was said already translated by MEMRI, they have no excuse other than a severe anti-Israel and thus anti-Semitic bias. Finding the lies could not be easier either, simply visit CAMERA and read almost any coverage they show about Israel and the Palestinians. Be prepared for news you may not have seen before and for much of what the nightly news has fed you to be upended with quotes and references.

 

 

 

Now prepare yourself for our small dose of food for thought. In the December of 2000 as President William Jefferson Clinton was desperately attempting to solve the unsolvable Arab-Israeli Conflict he held a series of meetings. The crux of these attempts to bridge the gap between Yassir Arafat and Ehud Barak led to an interesting turn of events during the desperate days in Paris. President Clinton met for hours with Yassir Arafat finally getting him to actually state what terms he would accept believing the Israelis would never in a million years meet these demands. They were for Israel to turn over 90% of the “West Bank” (Judea and Samaria) and all of the Gaza Strip as well as half of Jerusalem to become the Capital City for Palestine. Late in the evening President Clinton visited Ehud Barak and set forth the terms which Arafat had given him. It took some time and arm twisting but in order to make peace Ehud Barak agreed to returning 95% of Judea and Samaria along with all of the Gaza Strip and dividing Jerusalem. Once receiving Barak agreement, President Clinton sent word to Arafat’s delegation that they were to meet early the next morning for a joint session to negotiate face-to-face. Yassir Arafat smelled that he was a rat trapped by his own admissions and ordered secretively for his car to be brought around to the front entrance fully packed, door open, and driver ready to hit the gas as soon as Arafat was in the vehicle. When President Clinton presented copies of the agreement to the two leaders, Ehud Barak reached for a pen while Yassir Arafat bolted out the long corridor. Immediately afterward, Madeline Albright dashed after the fleeing Arafat in an ungainly and borderline hideous limping gallop never closing the distance. She cleared the door to have the cameras of the news reporters recording over her shoulder the black limousine circling out of the drive with Arafat seated in the back seat. A subsequent offer was tendered from Taba later that week which was not even dignified with a response and thus ended the Presidency of William Jefferson Clinton. But wait, there’s more.

 

Next comes along President George W. Bush and the ending of his term. He has successfully forced Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to turn the Gaza Strip over to the PA in exchange for some sweet words and fourteen promises written in a letter as an understanding between the two offices. This was supposedly an agreement between governments and this one won overwhelming affirmation from both houses of Congress garnering a total of comfortably over five-hundred votes from the combined Congress. These were the fourteen conditions under which the release of the Gaza Strip was performed and their refutation could have led to Israel retaking all of Gaza or some sections thereof. President Obama did indeed crumple up this agreement and trashed it completely with his assisting the passage of UNSC Res. 2334 during the closing days of his administration. This act will likely leave an unpleasant taste in any world leader’s mouth and be seen as a dire warning against accepting the world of any American President for the foreseeable future, especially one would hope Israeli leaders if no others. So, in late 2008 President George W. Bush and his Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice were pressing Israel once again to make the necessary sacrifices for peace. Again an Israeli Prime Minister, this time Ehud Olmert, made the supreme sacrificial offering of dividing Jerusalem and again over 90% of Judea and Samaria with land swaps for the remaining lands. This time they were dealing with Mahmoud Abbas, presumably a more reasonable and honest broker simply because instead of wearing fatigues and having a revolver strapped to his side, Abbas wears a business suit. Well, the apple did not fall far from the tree and Mahmoud Abbas proved to be a suitable (all inferences to a pun intentional) follow-up to Yassir Arafat as he officially received the offer and never even bothered to reply or make a counter offer. Instead he simply closed the negotiations with no further communication except to threaten to take the entire matter to the United Nations and the Court of The Hague and internationalize the conflict.

With the ample assistance proffered by President Barack Hussein Obama, Mahmoud Abbas has done exactly that, internationalized the conflict such that any European nations, the United Nations in any of its near infinite capacities and anyone or anywhere else can jump in and demand Israel make concession after concession receiving nothing but threats and violence in return. The world is internationalizing the conflict quite adequately with city after city in Europe and numerous colleges conducting some level of boycott against Israel, often all Israel claiming all of Israel is responsible for there being no solution. Technically, from the Arab point of view, they are correct; the fact that there is an Israel which makes the statement that it is the Jewish Homeland, that is sufficient to make peacemaking impossible as the Arabs of the PA and the Arab World demand the end of Israel as Jewish. They will accept an Israel provided the Arabs rule and the Jews, if permitted, remain as Dhimmis, second class citizens with restricted rights who may be executed at any time by whim of any with the authority to do so, often meaning any Muslim. Since this United Nations Security Council Chapter Six Resolution 2334 which blames Israel, particularly the “settlements” which are simply Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, legal under International Law, for blocking the path to peace, the Arab Palestinians are free to demand anything while doing nothing and the world gets to blame Israel for not appeasing the Arabs sufficiently through boycotts and calls for “Kill the Jews.” What is surprisingly illegal are any claims made by the PA and other Arab representatives as while they have legal rights to their property, they have no legal leg to stand upon claiming self-rule or requiring an independent state. The reality, as we have stated near endlessly, and are working on endlessly, is the lands all belong to Israel for use as the Jewish State and that the only means by which any of the land can become an Arab State is if Israel signs a treaty relegating our claims and rights to these lands. And one does not need believe us, but one might feel inclined to take the wording of a decision made by the Third Chamber of the Court of Appeal of Versailles in a case brought by the PA against the French companies Alstom and Veolia for building Jerusalem’s light rail system. Their final decision was also a warning to the PA that Israel has the sole claim to all of Judea and Samaria and that they would do best not to take this into any court of law. The fact this came from the friendliest court system the PA was able to find makes this all the more impressively important. Please take our kind invitation to read for yourself a copy of the Court Ruling. Furthermore, in an earlier case brought before Egyptian Judge, Justice El Araby, and the International Court of Justice (ICJ), who sat in judgement as part of the panel which heard the case where the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) sought an advisory opinion in 2003 from the ICJ on the legality of the security barrier erected by Israel; the Honorable Justice El Araby warned the UNGA and others, including Mahmoud Abbas and the whole of the PA, that filing further ran some risks, as he stated,

“The international legal status of the Palestinian Territory (paras. 70-71 of the Advisory Opinion), in my view, merits more comprehensive treatment. A historical survey is relevant to the question posed by the General Assembly, for it serves as the background to understanding the legal status of the Palestinian Territory on the one hand and underlines the special and continuing responsibility of the General Assembly on the other. This may appear as academic, without relevance to the present events. The present is however determined by the accumulation of past events and no reasonable and fair concern for the future can possibly disregard a firm grasp of past events. In particular, when on more than one occasion, the rule of law was consistently side-stepped. The point of departure, or one can say in legal jargon, the critical date, is the League of Nations Mandate which was entrusted to Great Britain.”

Things are not only not as they are portrayed by far too many in the Western Media Enterprise, but actually quite the opposite. Israel is not the occupier; the Arab Palestinians are the actual occupiers. International Law which is constructed from treaties, conferences, agreements and other contracts between men and nations is usually understood to have some leeway or allowance for differing opinions. The fact that Israel is defined on her east by the Jordan River and on the west by the Mediterranean Sea is an exception as it is delineated and spelled out with diagrams and maps in several agreements, conferences, treaties, Mandates and even Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. As the border of Israel is accepted as stated above in the United Nations Charter Article 80, the recent UNSC Res 2334 is invalid as the United Nations individual bodies cannot overrule the Charter thus in any instance where there might be a conflict, such as the statement that the Jewish communities defined as “settlements” due to their location east of the 1949 Armistice Line, also called the Green Line, is invalid as these communities are all west of the Jordan River and thus legally on Israeli lands. All of Judea and Samaria by default are Israeli lands unless Israel gives them away in a treaty, not agrees to talk about the possibility but actually agrees, until then the lands remain as an integral part of Israel. Those are the hard and true facts and the only lands that Israel signed away has been Gaza. How anybody can even think for a second after the catastrophic results of the Gaza giveaway that repeating the same motions this time with Judea and Samaria including the tactically significant Judean Heights and the Jordan Valley and its overlooking mountains has to be suffering from some severely debilitating mental disorder or actually desire to plot the end of Israel and her Jewish population. Gaza has proven that once the land has been signed away, no matter how severe the resulting rocket barrages and other acts of warfare committed against Israel, any reaction by Israel will be condemned by the world bodies and numerous governments where the best Israel can expect is half a dozen friendly nations, possibly the protection of the United States Veto in the Security Council (not an automatic despite what anybody says as Presidents change) and the great sacrifice some European nations and a few others might take by abstaining from a vote to condemn Israeli defense of her citizens from attacks. Former Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Abba Eban said it best stating, “If Algeria introduced a resolution declaring that the earth was flat and that Israel had flattened it, it would pass by a vote of 164 to 13 with 26 abstentions.” Abba Eban, having resided for a period in New York City, was able and took the opportunity to enlighten and grant the New York Times a singular piece of literary brilliance along with a moment of fresh air in the form of actual truth concerning Israel when he was quoted stating,

“Nobody does Israel any service by proclaiming its ”right to exist.” It is disturbing to find so many people well-disposed to Israel giving currency to this contemptuous formulation. Israel’s right to exist, like that of the United States, Saudi Arabia, and 152 other states, is axiomatic and unreserved. Israel’s legitimacy is not suspended in midair awaiting acknowledgement by the royal house in Riyadh. Nor does a group such as the Palestine Liberation Organization have any juridical competence to accord recognition to states, or withhold it.
A majority of the 155 states in the modern international community are younger in their sovereignty than Israel, which was the 59th member of the United Nations. There is certainly no other state, big or small, young or old, that would consider mere recognition of its ”right to exist” a favor, or a negotiable concession.
What Israel is entitled to have in return for the increase of its territorial vulnerability is not verbal recognition but an effective security system, to be arrived at by negotiations.
Back in 1967, when the world community adopted its unanimous policy for the Middle East in Security Council Resolution 242, some members suggested that Israel should be satisfied with a solemn declaration of the right of all states to exist. They added that Israel might, if it chose, regard itself as included in that definition. At that time, hardly any responsible government in the Western world or elsewhere accepted that definition of Israel’s rights as adequate…”

Palestinian Arabs Pressing for Final Confrontation

 

We knew this day would eventually be upon us and now we see it cresting the horizon and slowly but inexorably approaching. The signs we expected to foreshadow this inevitability have come at us these past few weeks. The initial sign was the weakness of Israeli leadership as this will force a change in the top of any party desiring to have a future in Israeli politics. The Labor Party and those left of them whose only message is as it has been, Oslo, Oslo, Oslo and appeasement as the solution with love for all are lost in that haze. Likud is paralyzed by what could be defined as Bibi-hood where the party has been compromised and now serves the future of current Prime Minister Netanyahu, the Israeli version of the anointed one, the inevitable one just as Hillary Clinton was and is the only thing for the immediate future of the Democrat Party come hell or high water. That leaves numerous other parties and it will be the one that realizes the undertow growing into a swell in Israeli politics and excite this swell as it heads for the shores where it will wash clean Israeli politics and prove substantively transformational. The other sign was the immediate willingness for the aroused and instigative Arabs to take their rioting to the next level just as the suicide martyrs have taken their attacks up a level. These attacks have been the stabbing of a young girl in her bed as she slept and in the back by what can only be described as a soulless youth drenched in the blood libels and soaked with a hatred which knew only one expression, kill, kill and continue murdering until stopped by forces willing to equal the hate they face with a resolve to stop the trading murderer whose sanity had been stripped away by years of incitement and dehumanizing until he represented pure hatred with explosive results. Add to that the slaughter of a Rabbi and near death of his wife, she is still in intensive care and has awaken from her coma but is not out of the woods, in a drive by shooting attack which caused the vehicle driven by the young Rabbi to overturn with their teenage children still in the back seat. They were rescued by the one glimmer of hope in this week of tragedy, a former terror prisoner from the Israeli prison system who proved that once sobered and having their tether sliced an Arab terrorist can become a humanitarian as he pulled the children from the overturned vehicle and held them safely in his vehicle while awaiting emergency responders. He gave the children over to them for treatment for wounds, the daughter having suffered a gunshot and both children were injured in the wreck. The daughter remains in hospital along with her mother and the son has been released to adult siblings and the family has gathered to strengthen one another. This attack was one of what appears to be a growing assault upon Tel Aviv and its surrounding metropolitan area as this shooting took place in Netanya and follows the shootings in the downtown marketplace and restaurant recently.

 

The other main escalation played out starting on the Temple Mount where the Ramadan Rioting was on full display with Arab young adults and teens, stored steel bars, sizeable rocks, bricks and other projectiles and weapons used to assault primarily Jews who might have the audacity to visit the holiest place in the entire world for Jews as well as any Christians and other non-Muslim tourists who also offered their affront by walking the walkways and plazas that are the Temple Mount. The area from which these attacks would emerge and where their armory of weaponry was stored would to any reasonable person be viewed as a desecration of a holy place, but they used the al-Aqsa Mosque as their tactical headquarters, armory and retreat point knowing that the security personnel and law enforcement would not enter the Mosque during the ‘holy’ month of Ramadan. Perhaps when Mahmoud Abbas spoke of desecration of the al-Aqsa Mosque by Jews what he meant was that the Palestinian Arabs were being forced to desecrate their holy site in order to take their war against Israel, Jews and the rest of the human race to the next level upon the Temple Mount a that was the one place they could use for such a purpose which would initially remain beyond the reach of security personnel and they know the only reason Palestinian Authority (PA) security personnel might enter the Mosque under pretense of assisting would be to arm the rioters with rifles as that would be the one means of doing so which would be next to impossible to prevent should Israel request assistance from the PA and such be granted. The PA security forces have had numerous occasions to open fire at unarmed Jews visiting holy sites such as Joseph’s Tomb (Kever Yoseph), Ruth’s Tomb (Kever Ruth), the Cave of the Patriarchs (Cave of Machpelah) and other holy sites and locations the Arabs control and thus believe no longer hold any significant holiness as they have been subsumed into Islam and no longer apply to other religions or peoples. This is the reasoning behind Mahmoud Abbas consistently referring to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre as belonging to Islam and the PA as well as the continuous references to Jesus of Nazareth as the original Palestinian Martyr implying he was a Muslim, not a Jew or the Messiah of the Christians but merely a follower of Islam who when returning will be to announce the return and be the servant of Mohammad or the Mahdi.

 

What finally took the Temple Mount rioting to the final level was that after the Temple Mount was closed due to the rioting Arabs to visitations by Jews, tourists or anybody not Islamic the rioters then started throwing rocks and bricks from the Temple Mount over the Western Wall on the worshipers below slightly injuring a seventy-three-old woman before security personnel intervened thus preventing the rioters their last targets. This will likely be the next escalation and the one escalation which will eventually, sooner rather than later, result in a severe blowback. We foresee Prime Minister Netanyahu in exchange for promised peace on the Temple Mount turning over all security to initially joint patrols not only with Waqf security but PA security forces as well being permitted patrol responsibilities. This will soon lead to a few days of massive rioting where the rioters will only subsist when approached by PA security making the case worldwide for sole patrolling by the only responsible and respected PA security forces. This will open the path to the next phase of rioting which will be the hurling of rocks down from the Temple Mount onto the visitors and Jews praying below at the Western Wall, the Kotel. The height of these walls makes projectiles of any substantive size deadly projectiles and the people below helpless victims unable of mounting any defense other than a hasty retreat, which is the desired result. Once these attacks become as common as the rioting has on the Temple Mount and the Kotel is closed to Jews and non-Muslims for days and then weeks on end the claim will be made that this too is really only a Muslim holy site as the Jews abandoned it without any real effort to defend their rights so obviously it is not as important to Jews as it is holy to Islam. This was the method they used to force the surrender of Kever Yoseph and Kever Ruth and all the Christian holy sites of Bethlehem and are even doing so in Nazareth which is within the Green Line but has increasingly become a Muslim community pushing the Christians out by threat and even force such as stoning their properties and even fire bombings. The turning of other religions’ holy places into Mosques or other determined Islamic holy places such as was done with the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople after it fell and even the entire city of Constantinople as it was renamed Istanbul has been a mainstay of Islam in erasing all unIslamic sites. This is why we are starting to hear that Rome is an Islamic holy city and we can safely predict that if they should ever take complete control of the Temple Mount, Kotel, Old City of Jerusalem and the Mount Olives Cemetery, then Jerusalem will fall off the radar as being the third holiest city in all Islam, a title once held by Constantinople, and Rome, Vatican City in particular, which will become the third holiest city in Islam behind Mecca and Medina. The Mount Olives Cemetery where many of the Jewish Kings, Prophets and Prime Ministers as well as other luminaries and respected holy and secular figures would make its loss as bitter a pill as the rest of the losses coming apparently to Jerusalem if Israeli leadership does not toughen. Of course there have existed holy sites which were not capable of being Islmisized such as the Buddhas of Bamiyan which were carved out of a cliff face and were not able to be reestablished and thus were destroyed by the Taliban using many hundreds of pounds of high explosives completely erasing these massive carvings leaving two large empty indentation holes where they had stood.

 

The problem with the hurling down of rocks and eventually larger objects and potentially scalding liquids will set a point from which there can be no escape but only a stand taken. Once the Jewish public turns and demands a stand be taken and elect a government willing to listen to the people as a whole and not just the club set and high society dinner and party crowd from in and around Tel Aviv then an end will be forthcoming and it will not be pretty. The initial step will be the force holding of an election monitored by the Israelis with assists from the international community who will be invited to view the process but not interfere. Israel will take its option of disinviting certain known instigating figures who have proven their visceral hatred of all things Israel and possibly Jewish as well such as former President Carter, Ban Ki-moon, Richard A. Falk (and all others who have held the position of United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967), other detestable United Nations representatives, many European Union and other continental political highhanded people, and other luminaries and they know who they may be. These elections will not be for a new parliament but for a set of representatives to represent the Arabs of Judea and Samaria in the negotiation of their return and possible eventual inclusion in the State of Israel as full citizens with complete rights. This person will represent the Arabs residing in these occupied areas, occupied not by Israel but from Israel as all the lands of Judea and Samaria are Israeli lands rightfully, legally and by right of treaties and their liberation in a defensive effort brought on by the Jordanian entry into the Six Day War late in the first day or early on Day two, despite pleadings by Israel informing the Jordanians that the Egyptian and Syria claims of great victory and closing on Tel Aviv were disinformation and outright lies.

 

Judea and Samaria, having been occupied for nineteen years from 1948 through to June of 1967 by Jordan, were finally liberated and reunited as an integral part of Israel once again as a result of the Six Day War. The war to take the Jewish ancient heartlands had begun before the British exit from the Holy Lands by Arab guerilla terror forces who arose in all parts of what was to become Israel murdering, rioting and destroying any equipment, provisions or fortifications they could in order to deny them to the Jews after independence. All of these actions before May 15, 1948 were executed with the intent of weakening the Jews in order to make them easier targets to be victims for the invading Arab armies which over a half dozen would converge in the massive invasion starting the very morning of Jewish independence in their homelands. These areas of Judea and Samaria had been forfeit when the Arab League refused the United Nations partition plan and instead opted for war thus nullifying the partition offer for all time as it was never a binding resolution to begin as it was a General Assembly proposition requiring both sides to acquiesce with the agreement up front or it would become nullified and voided should either side reject the offer. The Zionist Congress agreed to the proposal but the Arab League refused it opting for a war in which they won the lands of the Gaza Strip and Judean and Samarian lands which Jordan illegally annexed and renamed West Bank. The 1967 Six Day War and surprising and heralded victory by Israel liberated these lands and the rest, as it often said, is history.

 

The PA has been, with the complete knowledge, backing and funding of the United Nations, the European Union, individual European nations, Britain, United States, Arab States and others, running an indoctrination system in place of an education system. They have spent the past twenty years, since the September 1993 Oslo Accords returned lands to Palestinian control, indoctrinating the youth filling them with hatred and loathing not only against Israel but also Jews anywhere in the world. This has been aided by UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) which also funneled funding from the Western World towards these subversive and disruptive teaching and other youth involving activities including sports, training camps and numerous other activities which turned the Arab population under their rule into a seething mass of violent hate. These schools, actually training facilities, indoctrinate the children with rejectionism of the right of Israel to exist, armed revolt with the intent to take by force of arms the whole entirety of the lands from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, anti-Semitism, anti-Israelism, anti-Zionism, Jihad, martyrdom, religious war, and the annihilation of the world’s Jews. This warfare indoctrination is continued in their media, news reports, editorials, recreational activities such as youth camps and sports teams, naming of streets and parks for terrorists, honoring of terrorists and especially martyred terrorists, dying for Allah, the denigration of Jews and Israelis as well as numerous other methods largely aimed at youths and young adults targeting the most impressionable amongst their population. Additionally, the PA leadership fully backs this horrific indoctrination of hate being fed the children much of which is reminiscent of the German and Japanese youth education and recreational activities during World War II. Both powers used indoctrination techniques which were as demonic as they were diabolically turning young children into psychopathic murder machines filled with unsubstantiated hatreds for all people not matching their idea of the perfect race. That same practice is alive and being utilized under the name of educating and caring for the youth of the PA and Hamas. The poisoned personalities are going to become the normal in PA areas as they are in other jihadi societies such as the areas now ruled by the Islamic State and areas closer to home even in Europe and across North America it is spreading. Soon Israel will need every inch of the lands presumably held solely for her state of the Jewish People guaranteed by numerous conferences, treaties and other promises. May 15, 1948 was supposed to be the first day of building a nation and instead turned rapidly into a desperate struggle to retain a homeland, a Biblical homeland finally being resettled by its indigenous population after almost two thousands of years strewn across the planet starting with the Roman dispersions and then the natural and unnatural ebb and flow of the world often sending the Jewish People ahead where others feared to initially tread. It was presumably a Jewish stowaway escaping the Spanish Inquisition on one of Columbus’s ships who was sent forth to greet and meet the interesting but strange people residing in the new lands.

 

The Arab claims to being indigenous in these lands is as false as their claims to the numerous holy sites and use of Israelite and Jewish histories as their own which is the degrading part which soils our true history with their contaminated claims. The Arabs and Islam did not arrive until the seventh century AD while the Jewish claims go back to 1100 B.C.E. or 1200 B.C.E. with King Saul and then King David, then King Solomon on down the road and before Kings were the Judges who were the enforcement of the Law as received at Mount Sinai. The Cave of Machpelah was purchased at a generous price by Abraham as a burial place for his wife Sarah and eventually his family through three generations and the patriarchal and matriarchal lineage of the Jewish People. This would have taken place closer to 3000 B.C.E. and the rest is in the Old Testament which has proven more and more to have been an accurate historical record of real events and not a set of literary moralizations used to teach children and people a set of laws for governing their society, which it also proved to be and would not be a bad idea for today with some modernizations. Abraham was not Islamic though they claim their heritage through Ishmael though even he was not a Muslim. The first Islamic was Muhammad in the Seventh Century. The Jewish people had already built the First and Second Temples; both destroyed and were still residing in numbers in and around Jerusalem and the Holy Lands as laid out in Torah and the Bible. Christianity had already branched from Judaism and had been practiced for over six-hundred years and Islam was not brought into the world directly from the lineage of Abraham as it was not adapted directly from Judaism and was initially a new means of uniting the disparate Arab communities and Muhammad knew he had to usurp either Christendom or the Jewish faith’s history and that is still in progress to this day. One of the problems is that the Quran does not compare well against the New or Old Testament as Judaism proselytizing is basically forbidden and quite a foreign process, Christianity is instructed to proselytize by telling the word of Jesus and his life, death and message and how he died fulfilling the Hebrew, Jewish, covenant thus creating a new covenant. Islam simply claims to be the final angelic inspired and dictated revelation and declares all before and after Muhammad’s Quran as invalid and void of meaning or Heaven given scripture. Islam claims the Quran replaces all previous holy teachings and is in no way a branch from the tree but is the tree. Of the three religions theoretically traced to Abraham, only Judaism is of a limited nature and seeks only to apply to Jews and largely, just those here in Israel once the ingathering is complete which means likely within a couple more generations. Judaism does not desire or demand to be applied to people outside of Judaism and suggests that any society would be sided to adopt the Noahic Code (see below). Judaism claim only the lands defined in the Bible, Old Testament, and does not desire to conquer the world or the peoples within, we simply are instructed to represent Hashem through our actions and act as a ‘light unto the nations’ inspiring people to want to live as a better people for their own sake.

That is it for Judaism, a small piece of land on which we will eventually get it correct and live as an example for others and to perform good deeds, make discoveries and share their benefits with all mankind. We have aided or made significant contributions that many are not aware that the Jews were instrumental and often they were Israelis as well. When the world has a catastrophe whether caused by nature’s forces such as tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes, or any other such natural disaster or human caused disasters such as nuclear plant meltdown or warfare, Israel is often the first one arriving with care givers, search and rescue, medical, psychological, and always with a field hospital. Israel was amongst the first in Haiti, Japan, Philippines, United States and other places. In Nepal the Israelis were the first in, the only full-function field hospital, and the last to leave and located every single Israel known to be in the area affected. When in the Philippines there was a reporter who went to a village the Philippine government claimed was not and had never received aid and when the reporter arrived they were greeted by the Israeli caregivers who had set up a clinic and would not leave until they had trained the villagers on the proper use of the equipment they left behind for their use. The Israelis even sent a team a year on to see how the little village was doing and they were rewarded with great affections and special treatment including a village festival feast. This is the Israel we know but which is not told and instead Israel is demonized despite what she does or because as others feel threatened because when people help and go to such lengths to make life better for every soul they meet, they believe there has to be some sinister reason behind it as people do not help in such a manner. Israelis do and so do many charitable Christian, Buddhist and other religious organizations. We believe it is because Israel is so demonized that facing this reality leaves people confused and then they manufacture some ulterior motive such as Israel is this helpful and gives so freely because they have a guilty conscience about how they treat the Palestinians.

 

Treat the Palestinians? We treat them regularly in our hospitals. We have treated Mahmoud Abbas’s mother and in-laws. We treated Haniyeh’s wife, daughter, mother-in-law, and grandmother in Israeli hospitals. Earlier this year Abbas made the claim that a young Arab Palestinian boy, who had severely wounded a thirteen-year-old Israeli boy just before he assaulted an armed enforcement officer who shot him, had died, murdered by an overzealous Israeli police officer as he was only fifteen-years-old, despite knowing he was alive and being treated by the Israelis (picture of boy in hospital below included video). Captured CCTV videos show the progressions of attempted attacks to attack on 13 year old Israeli boy at top of screen in street outside store and finally the older cousins charge security personnel, knife raised in obvious intent to stab one of the officers who responded, and he is shot.

In conclusion, these attacks have been promised to increase in numbers and severity with the added threat that suicide and terror bombings are going to return on a regular basis in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa, Ashdod, Ashkelon and other major cities across Israel. Hamas has promised rocket and missile attacks to continue and Hezballah is threatening massive rocket and missile attacks as has a General from the IRGC while Mahmoud Abbas and the PA continue to ramp their incitement and worship of death and destruction along with their hatred of life finding life to not be special except in how it is thrown away and throwing it away in an attempt to kill Jews is considered the highest accomplishment and this is reinforced through daily indoctrinations and incitements which flood the Television and Radio, especially children’s shows, and is a mainstay of their education and recreational systems where teen and youths often act out murdering Jews as part of graduation ceremonies and other celebratory events where they often list and laud suicide bombers. Theirs is not a truly functional society and will remain as such as this indoctrination and incitement has been carried on for twenty years corrupting two generations of children with a death culture in place of a real life and ambitions to build and invent not kill and destroy. It will take decades once the system has been torn down and the PA removed and Israel reestablishing rightful ownership. The sooner Israel performs what we all know is the inevitable end of this fiasco, this farce called Oslo which died before the ink was dried on the signatures. It was highly surprising when Arafat signed the Oslo Accords that they did not immediately go up in flames. But that they did before even being photocopied and filed. End the farce now and possibly save the next generation of Arab children from the PA and its murderer factories.

There Will Never be a Demilitarized Palestine

 

Let us start this opinion piece admitting such straight out. We will claim this is our view and in no way represents the known opinion by us of any political party or entity within Israel and we doubt it ever will as the world cannot accept reality. Let us also report one simple fact that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s Corp test-fired ballistic missiles that had written on them in Hebrew, “Israel must be wiped off the Earth.” Also, any Palestinian State cannot be ruled separately with Hamas Ruling in Gaza allied with Islamic Jihad and likely in time if not already with the Islamic State (ISIS) and with the PLO terror wing which would subsume the PA which is but its masquerade face painted over the rotting hatreds at its core so as to make them appear acceptable to the Western World, especially the European Union and many of its member states. The Western World likes to believe in fairy tales whereby if a peace were ever reached with Mahmoud Abbas that Hamas would gladly join the party and celebrate an end to its violence against Israel. That is utter nonsense and in the quiet moments when the truth is whispered they admit such. Abbas has spoken the truth a million times in his native Arabic as has the dame fatal who recently serenaded the advisors and other members of the Obama Administration as well as Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Hanan Ashrawi, singing a tired old tune calling for the United Nations and Western World to force Israel into reasonableness, another world for complete surrender. The PLO is fully aware that even when Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump or especially John Kasich, Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio is elected, none of them will pose a greater hope for assisting them with the destruction of Israel and their only real opportunity is now with the waning hours of President Obama’s second term. So, what would happen should there ever be an agreement which established an Arab state alongside of Israel with much of Judea and Samaria as well as Gaza all under a single governance stipulated to be demilitarized, that is what needs be answered and in that answer the only obvious plan for a real peace will become clearly revealed.

 

The one thing which seems to have escaped everybody’s notice started back in 1947 when the United Nations on November 29 offered to divide the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea evenly with two-thirds of the Jewish State in the Negev Desert and Jerusalem as an international zone under United Nations rule. The Arab League refused this offer and their reason defined the entire Arab Israeli conflict. Their reason was they could not accept or permit in any form a Jewish State ever, period. This was further enforced when at the very dawn of the first day Israel was attacked by the combined armies of over a half dozen nations with the intent of a genocidal cleansing of the lands of the Jewish presence, let alone as a nation. Over the next year and a half the Israeli forces not only resisted being slaughtered but at the end managed to break through in the final hours to Jerusalem breaking the siege and permitting both the retention of part of the ancient Israelite Capital City since the time of King David and holding the route from Tel Aviv on the shore through to the Capital of Jerusalem. The Arabs attempted twice more to destroy Israel in the Six Day War of 1967 where the attacking armies managed to force Israel into taking control of the Golan Heights from what used to be Syria, the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt and liberating all of Judea and Samaria from Jordanian occupation and Gaza Strip from Egyptian occupation, that is very important, Jordanian occupation and Egyptian occupation. That begs the question of whose lands were the Egyptians and Jordanians occupying. Wait for it. The lands at the dawn of May 15, 1948 belonged to, you guessed it, Israel. These were the lands lost by Israel to the invading Arab armies back in 1948 when at the very start of hostilities all of Gaza belonged to Israel and the Jordan River was the Israeli eastern border where that morning the combined armies of Jordan, Iraq and Saudi Arabia were perched waiting for dawn to attack with the sun at their backs, and it must have been of great help as they pushed through half way to the Mediterranean before the nascent Israeli forces were capable of stopping the advance and in the process a Jewish force ended up surrounded in western Jerusalem and remained there until the end of the fighting when they were finally relieved allowing Western Jerusalem to remain in Israeli possession. The main point is that the Jordan River and the Gaza were both initially a part of Israel when it was designed and formed by the United Nations. There was another attempt which almost succeeded which came during Yom Kippur War of 1973 where Israel troops held or delayed the attacking forces of Syria and Egypt sufficiently that the reserves and soldiers on leave for the High Holidays were able to form a credible defense. Units were initially mixed as soldiers simply gathered and formed functioning units until order could be restored to the IDF and by the time the war ended Israel was moving on Damascus, Cairo and Alexandria but agreed to return to the final positions from the Six Day War returning vital lands to Syria and Egypt. That also needs to be heeded as Israel had crossed the Suez Canal and rolled off the Golan Heights heading across Syria, so Israel gave back lands even before any negotiations had been held.

 

 

A map of Israel should any of the nations of the world actually be honest and truly be seeking peace which can only be attained should Israel have the most defensive borders imaginable.

When the Arab nations finally resigned to the fact that Israel was not going to be easily overrun militarily they devised a new tactic, destruction from within by political means. Thus was born the Arab Palestinians who were the Arabs who resided in the areas previously occupied by Egypt and Jordan. Odd as it may at first appear, the Palestinians were made up of areas which were held by two distinct nations, Egypt and Jordan. Many of the Arabs residing in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) were actually Jordanians who moved into the area under the assistance of the Jordanian government as well as the original Arabs who would have been Israelis, though over time the difference became a difference without any difference as both groups were Arabs and had all been granted Jordanian citizenship, thus are all previously Jordanians while the Arabs in Gaza were never granted Egyptian citizenship despite Gaza being occupied by Egypt for almost twenty years. The decision was, by assigning to these Arabs who were no different from Syrians, Egyptians, Jordanians, Iraqis, Saudi Arabians or any Arabs anywhere on Earth, the denotation of a new and presumed aboriginal identity. They were assigned a distinction which actually does not exist, but this was necessary to in order to plant a cancer within Israel with the hoped plan of destroying Israel in stages until Israel was so weakened by this disease placed within its borders that the Arab nations could marshal their armies and finally excise Israel from their midst. This was hoped to happen in a reasonably short period but things did not work as well as hoped and instead the cancer also revolted against their masters.

The Palestinians attempted to overthrow the monarchy in Jordan and then proceeded to Lebanon where they initiated a civil war which resulted in the forming of Hezballah which eventually eviscerated Lebanon changing it from its Christian origins into a dysfunctional terrorist state all but directly ruled by Hezballah, an almost universally recognized terrorist army. The Hezballah terror army had been most evident of late fighting in support of the Iranian puppet state of Bashir al-Assad in Syria or what used to be Syria and have also been reported assisting the Houthis in their war supported by Iran in Yemen. One could easily argue that Hezballah is the Iranian attack dog which will bite wherever directed by Iran which had, until recently, only used Hezballah to control Lebanon and attack Israel whenever Iran wished the world to look elsewhere, anywhere other than at Iran itself. This new and expansive use of Hezballah, one of the most expansive terror groups with cells worldwide, diverted so much of their resources from Lebanon that Iran sought new terror groups to employ against Israel. This created a strange pair of bedfellows as Iran started providing Hamas with funds and rocket technologies to improve their rocket threat to Israel. This was a first for a Shiite nation to be providing such aid to a Sunni group; but when it comes to destroying Israel, sometimes things can override other lessor differences, even some which has existed for many centuries. Iran has been attempting to gain similar inroads with the PLO through which they would gain control of the PA and the assigned respect and support of Europe, the United Nations and even some degree of recognition from the United States through Abbas and the method that first the Europeans and United Nations recognized as the one concept they could support in recognizing a weakening of Israel and possibly its eventual destruction without having to admit their perfidy.

 

That leads to the central dilemma, how can peace be made and still allow for Arab and Islamic acquiescing to the agreement. This takes us all the way back to November 29, 1947 where the Arab world gave their only and final answer, they would never, ever, ever recognize nor allow, permit, or in any way even negotiate with the Zionist entity Israel. The Arab League held a conference on September 1, 1967 in Khartoum, Sudan and produced what the Arab League called the Khartoum Resolution which stated that the Arab World would hold the line against Israel with no recognition, no peace, no negotiation, period. The full document can be read here. Many Arab League nations initially broke relations with Egypt when they made their peace with Israel. Egypt received the return of the Sinai Peninsula but resigned their occupation of Gaza back to Israel. The Arab League could not long ignoring the most populated Arab nation and the home of the leading Islamic University and after the Arab League relented over Egypt making peace with Israel, Jordan followed suit returning the parts of Judea and Samaria back to Israel relenting on the area they had renamed something less Jewish, West Bank, and reneged on their citizenship including on Jordanians who had relocated to take advantage of lower land value leaving their contribution to the ticking time bomb. Jordan subsequently claimed they had not relented returning the lands to Israel but had given it to Yasser Arafat to form a new Arab nation and thus the Arab Israeli Conflict entered its latest iteration. The one item which must be remembered is that the Arab Israeli conflict is a war, repeat, a war and wars can only be resolved when one side is destroyed or surrenders. Destroyed speaks for itself while surrender means that terms need to be reached which may include deportation or relocation of entire populations. The one other item which is always glossed over because Israel accepted and integrated almost a million Jews who were deported, forcibly removed or left due to threats to their lives from the many Arab and Muslim nations across the Middle East and North Africa. The Arab nations have kept their relocated refugees in apartment buildings separate from their populations refusing them equal if any rights and limited if any employment opportunities leaving them as a weapon with which to demand be resettled in Israel flooding Israel with the original half million which have since included their children and children’s children some to fourth generation now numbering close to five million forsaken souls. These camps are spread between the numerous Arab nations with some coming under assault by Assad and being driven off with the rest of the refugees from the Syrian debacle.

The Arab Israeli conflict, renamed the Palestinian Israeli conflict though still the exact same conflict and set of problems, basically has to reach a decision as to a set of three principle dilemmas. These are the final borders of the State of Israel, the placement and resettling of Palestinian Arab refugees from the camps throughout the Arab world as this is actually still a conflict between the Arab world and Israel, the Jewish state. The first and most important argument made by the Israelis is not a workable solution as even a Palestinian state which might begin as demilitarized, it would not long remain demilitarized as Iran and others would smuggle arms to their allied segments within the state be they PLO, Hamas or any other group or family. This has been proven by the rocket attacks by Hamas, the armaments and over hundred thousand rockets and missiles deployed throughout Lebanon concentrated south of the Litani river and along the Becca Valley Hezballah stronghold and training areas. The arms in numbers and varieties would be provided lavishly quickly ending any hopes of a real demilitarized Palestinian Arab state and instead replaced with one of the most highly militarized states as once the initial arms were provided and any confrontation with Israel is staged, then the Arab world would scream foul accusing Israel of disproportional force demanding that the Palestinians be permitted weapons for defensive usage. From there to tanks, fighter aircraft, helicopters, artillery and anything even including naval vessels for Gaza with the spiral being taken further at every opportunity would logically follow as if fitting an actual plan, imagine that. The eventual end of the whole Arab Israeli conflict, no matter what name one wishes to give the actual events, can only come to fruition in one of two outcomes, the end of Israel or the realization by the Arab and Muslim worlds that ridding themselves of the Jewish state will always be far more costly than they can reasonably accept. In other words, it can only end which one side surrenders and accepts their defeat. As things stand that is a long way from becoming reality. The first problem is that the Arab and Muslim world can fight Israel using their sacrificial pawns the Palestinians and various terror groups such as Hezballah and not resort to using any valuable resources of their own which they would prefer not to risk. Having Palestinians and other expendable assets sacrificed is something the Arab world has been willing to risk for over sixty years through one Intifada after another with their expendables now extending to include some incitable youths residing within Israel. Further, there are the Hezballah terror assets which had been the Iranian weapon of choice against Israel which they have since expanded to include Hamas due to other priorities taxing Hezballah capabilities. In order for there to be any change in the current routine of Intifadas and rocket wars, depending on whether the assaults are coming from Judea and Samaria or from Gaza, the Arab world pays little if any price other than possibly funding and even that they siphon off as much as possible from European, United Nations and United States funding sources. For there to be a fundamental change there would need to be an alteration forcing a price in the greater Arab and Muslim world for their warfare against Israel. Israel has been wary to escalate the conflict in any form but eventually the cost to Israel will force such an escalation.

 

There is but one single way in which Israel could escalate the confrontations forcing a level of cost onto the greater Arab world and Iran, fighting to win outright and not simply to contain the problem kicking the inevitable down the road repeatedly. The point at which Israel will have little if any choice may be coming faster than anybody realizes. If the United Nations Security Council forces a resolution through Chapter Seven Resolution and is willing to back up such a resolution with military force then Israel would soon be facing the world parked on her doorstep protecting the very lands from which rocket and terror attacks would be emanating and have no other choice but to issue an ultimatum for the world to end the Arab war against Israel or be prepared to remove their forces as Israel had been placed in a position of facing escalating danger that her people were unwilling to permit any further. With the world protecting the terrorists Israel would have no other choice. The other solution would be to give one final warning to the PLO and PA and other terror operatives in Judea and Samaria to cease or face being driven from their lands as Israel would no longer accept the slow death spiral forced upon her by the governing body known as the Palestinian Authority and the various entities it claimed to govern. Once Israel resorts to such an ultimatum there can be no more half measures or backtracking, the full force of the IDF forcing all of the PA and its people beyond the Jordan River and declaring the entire conflict finished and the original borders of Israel restored and final would need to be the unalterable position and let the world say and act as they choose. Such a choice would not come easy but losing three or more citizens to wanton terror is equally unacceptable and no nation would ever allow such a situation to persist anywhere near as long as Israel has suffered such losses. The time will eventually arrive when Israel facing little other alternatives and after having exhausted all other options will need end this conflict and make the Arab world admit their error in attempting to destroy Israel for seven decades and finally accept a reality which is never going to change. What other alternative is there as the Arabs known as the Palestinians have the same position as their forebearers, no recognition, no peace, no negotiation, period. Israel is going to need to alter that formula by whatever means necessary, period.
