Just Try to Understand the Problem

 

We admit, perhaps yesterday’s article was a bit over the top to the point of borderline ridiculous. Just Try to Understand the Problem from an Israeli perspective just this once. We promise that once you fully understand how preposterously ridiculous the demands made on Israel are and the history of the actual problem that you will never view the Arab-Israeli conflict the same way again. The first thing one need understand is the Arabs know there is no such thing as a Palestinian and that they are just Arabs from any number of nations. The vast majority are from one of five countries; Egypt has the most followed approximately by Syria, Jordan, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. There are others from such as Turkey, Yemen, Tunisia, the Sudan and others even further away. But if you take in the Arab World, which consists of all the nations in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), then you would pretty much have them covered with the few stragglers from Turkey and the north-central Asian Muslim nations. There are also Christians, and Druze, though they make up a dwindling number as they flee from persecution by the Muslim Arabs. Israel, it must be remembered, has an Arab population making up just over 20% of the total population with the greater majority, 90%, being Muslims with the remaining 10% of the Arabs being Christians.

 

So just over one-fifth of the Israeli population is Arab and these are the Arabs who took Israel up on remaining here when the Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini, the Arab leader who spent all of World War II working alongside and in conjunction with the leaders of the Nazi Party and even raising two SS Divisions in the Balkans where they hunted down and murdered Jews and Serbs running concentration camps and it is rumored fairly reliably that Amin al-Husseini advised the Nazis at the Wannsee Conference and may have played a not so insignificant part in suggesting and getting the Final Solution to become Nazi policy. The Mufti of Jerusalem was known to protest vehemently against the plan to deport all the Jews to the British Mandate Areas which would have seen nearly ten million Jews sent to the area and saved six million Jewish lives. The Mufti of Jerusalem preferred dead Jews to Jews living in their ancient homeland. But none of this surprised the Zionist leadership or the Jews living in the Holy Lands. Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini was appointed by the British and worked with them to import tens of thousands of Arabs into the Holy Lands such that the Jews would never become the majority. In this way, the British could continue to deny the Jews their homeland claiming they did not constitute a majority and thus could not rule the lands. The Mufti also began pogroms against the Jews with the largest taking place in Hebron which was referred to as the 1929 Hebron Massacre which had a secondary uprising of Arab on Jew violence in Jerusalem. The most interesting thing was that the British authorities and troops stood by watching and when the Arabs appeared about to attack the British, the officer in charge discharged one pistol shot and the Arabs scattered. He could have ended the pogrom at any time with such a show of force but instead allowed it to continue resulting in sixty-seven Jews killed and around sixty were wounded with untold property damage. The cause behind the riot was Amin al-Husseini claiming that the Jews had attacked the Temple Mount and had damaged and were destroying the Dome of the Rock and the Mosques on the Mount. Does any of this sound even remotely familiar?

 

The chant in the pogroms of the 1920’s was ‘Jews destroying the Muslim shrines on the Temple Mount’ and then the chant driving the pogroms again in the mid and late 1930’s was ‘Jews destroying the Muslim shrines on the Temple Mount,’ particularly the Dome of the Rock. The First Intifada was driven by calls that the Jews were attacking the Temple Mount, though they changed their wording and used Haram esh-Sharif (Arabic: الحرم الشريف‎‎, al-Ḥaram al-Šarīf, “the Noble Sanctuary”, or الحرم القدسي الشريف, al-Ḥaram al-Qudsī al-Šarīf, “the Noble Sanctuary of Jerusalem”). The Second Intifada was driven by calls that the Jews were about to steal all the Arab lands and murder the Arab women. The logic behind this makes little sense as would not the reality be including the Arab men but in almost all societies the women are the more treasured and in Islam, they have that in spades. Since then the call whenever Abbas has desired stepping up the level of violence has been the Jews are desecrating the al-Aqsa Mosque. Abbas knows what he is doing as they have sold to the news crews that the Dome of the Rock can be substituted for the al-Aqsa Mosque. This permits the media to use a far more stunning and beautiful building in their reports while the truth is the al-Aqsa Mosque is a rather drab building on its exterior while the dome of the Rock has the huge dome covered in gold-filmed tiles making for a stunning picture (see pictures below). With the sun illuminating the dome making it absolutely radiant and claiming the Jews are trying to destroy this building works in Europe and around the world to cast the Jews as the destroyers of artifacts. It does not matter that there is absolutely no truth, it only matters that people want to believe the worst about Jews.

 

Dome of the Rock is on the Left al-Aqsa Mosque is on the Right One is Nice and Very Eye Catching The Other is Less Eye Catching thus al-Aqsa is Abused as an Armory and Used to Whip Up the Riots against Jews

 

Today the call to arms is the same with Abbas claiming that the Jews with their “Filthy Feet” to “defile our al-Aqsa Mosque” so “We bless every drop of blood that has been spilled for Allah,” (see video below). These are just some of what Mahmoud Abbas said on a television broadcast on Palestinian Authority television, a broadcast frequency controlled and gifted to the Palestinian Authority along with radio frequencies all of which they naturally refuse to pay their charges for the use of them. They believe that providing these services is amongst the numerous things that Israel owes them just for their existing. Here is the content which will be seen on the video provided by PMW (Palestinian Media Watch), “We bless you, we bless the Murabitin (those carrying out Ribat, religious conflict/war to protect land claimed to be Islamic), we bless every drop of blood that has been spilled for Jerusalem, which is clean and pure blood, blood spilled for Allah, Allah willing. Every Martyr (Shahid) will reach Paradise, and everyone wounded will be rewarded by Allah. The Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is ours, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is ours, and they have no right to defile them with their filthy feet. We will not allow them to, and we will do everything in our power to protect Jerusalem.” Make sure to note that Abbas claims that the Christian Church of the Holy Sepulchre belongs to the Muslims. This is simply standard procedure that any other religion being practiced within Islamic lands are simply poor forms of Islam and the Muslim leaders own their structures and at any time may alter them until they are presentable as Mosques at which point the Christians will be wiped out or converted by the sword, convert or die, and their structures finish their transformation and become actual Mosques. Without any further ado, here is the promised brief video.

 

 

The similarity between the Mufti of Jerusalem, Nazi Sympathizer and collaborator Amin al-Husseini and his use of the Temple Mount and Islamic structures to cause Muslims to riot and murder Jews and the use of the same strategy by both Yasser Arafat during the Second Intifada and Mahmoud Abbas who currently calls for defending the al-Aksa Mosque from Jews defiling it with their “filthy feet” and conducting Satanic rituals within the Mosque to incite riots currently, often leading into Jewish holidays, using the exact same wording is just too much to be ignored as this trend of using such lies to rise up hatreds just repeats continuously with the world all but ignoring the ruse and joining Abbas in cursing Israelis, particularly Jews. This is why Mahmoud Abbas started the rioting on the Temple Mount in parallel with Jordanians demanding that Jews be banned from the Temple Mount because their presence is what is causing the rioting. The Jordanians absolutely appear to ignore Mahmoud Abbas and his instigating the riots because the two are working together to close the Temple Mount to Jews. In the past year Abbas has called for Temple Mount rioting starting just before the Ninth of Av, the memorializing the destruction of the First and Second Temples and near uncountable other catastrophes that the holiday remembers but the Holy Temples are the most important element and climbing to visit the Temple Mount on that day is of great magnitudes of importance to many, if not most, Jews, especially those in Israel. These riots continued at varying levels of intensity for over two months so as to include Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur which are also known as the high Holidays. These are another time where many would wish to visit the Temple Mount but the rioting increased a few days before Rosh Hashanah continuing through Yom Kippur with Jordan once again demanding of the Israeli government to work with the Jordanian provided Waqf which makes Islamic ruling decisions over the Temple Mount through the good graces and allowance of Israeli government as a means of proving to the Islamic world that Israel is not hostile to their religious sensitivities. Sukkot is the next Jewish holiday and is one of the traditional Pilgrimage Holidays when the Jews were required to come to Jerusalem for religious observances where the priests, the Cohens and Levites, were required to perform sacrifices and distribute the edibles as divided by instructions from the Torah. This feast might be referred to as a religious Bar-B-Q with Kosher meat and all rules of Kashrut observed by all. Once again, as Sukkot approached, the rioting increased and again Jordan claimed the reason for the rioting was that Jews were allowed on the Temple Mount and demanded that the status quo be maintained.

 

Here is the dirty little secret, there is no such status quo, status quo simply means that Jews be refused permission to enter the Temple Mount. After the Six Day War Jews, Christians, Muslims and anybody who desired could enter the Temple Mount from any open entrance and walk around freely. That was the original condition and thus would, if anyone was being honest about this including the Israeli government, would be the status quo. As time went and the Arab leaders learned that if they rioted and demanded Jews not be permitted onto the Temple Mount that the Israeli government quickly responded and enforced their desires, then the rioting started to increase. As the rioting would increase, when it was finally allowed to die down there would be demands that the status quo not be altered and the restriction on which entrances Jews were permitted, and later that spread to all non-Muslims, became more and more restrictive until now there is one discreet all but hidden entrance that non-Muslims must use which is accessed through a makeshift bridge which the Israelis have petitioned for permission to repair and been told if it collapsed then the Jews will have to climb the rock face of the wall to reach the entrance. Simply rendered is they will then have finally pushed the status quo to only Muslims are permitted on the Temple Mount and UNESCO will be proven correct, it will have become an Islamic Waqf, an Islamic restricted Muslims only place. This will also affect Christians and any others desiring visiting this holy and ancient site. But that is slowly becoming an impossibility. And there is one person to blame that it started in this direction, General Moshe Dayan who advised that in order to not disturb Jordan and make return of Judea and Samaria (West Bank) to Jordan to make peace the first step would be to permit the Jordanian officials who made up the Waqf to continue as the arbiters and custodians of the temple Mount. With time, they became the enforcers of restrictions and slowly increased their power and now are on the verge of making the Temple Mount into Islamic holy grounds where no non-Muslim may tread.

 

The real problem here is the timidity within the Israeli leadership, particularly Prime Minister Netanyahu. Often it appears that Prime Minister Netanyahu is more concerned with his remaining the virtual King by keeping the situation precariously balanced such that nobody desires taking the weight of leadership and thus as long as the Likud Party has the sole leader proven to be capable of at least not making things worse, then they will lead. Bibi Netanyahu also tends his personal garden, also known as the Likud Party, planting people who support him high on the list keeping them around him in the Knesset with a couple who appear ready to take the reigns of power should he decide to step down but also who know their power came from Netanyahu so they would never challenge his leadership. Those who would challenge his leadership and are capable of being a real challenge get buried on the listings somewhere past forty or even fifty thus never making the Knesset and soon fading from the scene, as they have no seat of power or position to garner support or media coverage. Then there are the supporting parties. Most honestly have not the ability to challenge Likud and even the strongest of the opposition parties have little chance of defeating Likud as proven in the last Israeli election where the entire reelection team which guided President Obama’s successful reelection campaign were unable to garner even mild support for the Labor Party and those who would have assisted their rule and Likud crushed them with one speech a day or so before the election by Bibi, that is the reality of Israeli politics today. Is there any hope? Oddly, the answer is yes and would require one of three events for such to become reality.

 

The easiest is for Jewish Home Party’s Naftali Bennett to actually run placing his party and himself as a direct challenge to Netanyahu and make a real go offering real change and a direct plan to solve the Arab situation by decapitating the Palestinian authority, sending Mahmoud Abbas to anywhere which would accept him and holding elections within six months in Judea and Samaria to establish local leaders and a central government which would be overseen by the Israeli government with the Ministers of the Economy, of Defense, of Finance, of Health, of Education, of Justice, of Transportation and of Construction all assigned to assist in the ruling of the Arab areas making sure the financial workings actually went where they would most help the people. The education system would necessarily undergo a massive transformation from incitement to actual education for a future, a productive future. The roads and utilities would undergo a complete refurbishing with new roads and power, water, gas and other utilities extended to all. People would actually be billed and expected to pay for the utilities used and they would be cut-off for nonpayment. The economy would be overhauled and the current monopoly held by Abbas’s two sons, Tareq and Yasser, would be splintered and new ownership would be arranged by choosing the best qualified from amongst the other employees who remained after the removal of the power structure of all of the Palestinian Authority which includes Fatah, PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Islamic State, Muslim Brotherhood, Hezballah, IRGC, and other terror and foreign power’s agents. With such changes, the Arabs would actually have a future and so would their children and within a generation or two things would change so drastically that the idea of destroying Israel would mostly evaporate. But there is always the chance that Naftali Bennett is too comfortable in his position that he does not desire the challenge and responsibility of leadership. This should have the Jewish Home Party seeking new leadership. We have suggested one from amongst their ranks and a popular figure in Ayelet Shaked. When recently interviewed she was asked about just such possibility and her response was that she did see a future where she might seek to be Prime Minister but for now she desires raising her children first and maybe then taking a grasp at the golden ring. We would have only one question for Ms. Shaked, “What kind of Israel do you desire for your children. If it is a prosperous Israel without threats from within as well as without and Europe and world institutions grasping at our throats, then perhaps she might consider serving Israel as an important part of raising her children.”

 

Currently many of the problems facing the Israeli government are self-inflicted problems. The fact that they were allowed to develop to the point where the national security of the country is at stake and some might even claim that the nation itself is in danger of being turned upon by the world and at least the United Nations and other world institutions and NGO’s. The first step Israel need take is to institute rules whereby any NGO receiving over one third of its funding from outside of Israel, be it from other NGO’s, individuals and especially governments or world institutions such as the European Union and United Nations and its agencies, then it must seek licensing from somewhere other than Israel as they would no longer qualify as Israeli. This would include monies received from the United States even including Jewish foundations, Jewish community service groups or even Synagogues. Such restrictions would make Israeli limits on foreign capital being used in the name of Israel through various NGO’s as is currently the case, perfectly in line with the rest of the nations in the developed world, especially the ones in Europe where they are fighting such laws as they are the number one benefactors of being able to pretend their financed NGO is Israeli despite the bulk of its funds coming from European nations and funds. Another step would be to remove the current money skimming excuse for governance called the Palestinian Authority and send its leaders into exile and informing them that should they return they will face embezzlement charges, money laundering, misappropriation of government funds and a myriad of other charges with the fullest punishment possible being sought with the intent of imprisonment for the remainder of their lives. Let them understand that simply leaving and buying a villa and retiring living the good life would be advisable. Allow the individual towns and cities to elect their own leadership and have everything overseen by an elected Arab governance with Israeli oversight as explained above. And finally granting the Arabs residing in Judea and Samaria resident alien status as almost all have Jordanian passports and identification papers or their parent have such. Let them know that terrorism will not be tolerated and anybody caught and convicted of terror related crimes will be deported immediately after serving their sentenced time in prison. Further, let them know and prove through actions that Israel now considers their areas as part of Israel and services will be improved to meet those anywhere in Israel. The Arabs also must know they will be charged for power, water and other utilities the same as any Israeli and will be treated equally. They also need to know that Israeli laws now apply in all areas. The Jordanian Waqf will be given an ultimatum, either permits their decisions to be overseen by Israel or pack up and return to Jordan but they will no longer refuse equal treatment to all on the Temple Mount and that is a final decision. Lastly, the Arabs will be informed that with time there may come into being a means of gaining Israel citizenship but that all terrorism must end before that can even be considered. Lastly, Jordan will be requested to renew the passports of their former citizens and to issue passports to the children and grandchildren as requested but solely for those Arabs residing in the areas which they once occupied. Make it known that Israel is aware and can easily prove that some of the people and their families who currently reside in Judea and Samaria were forced to relocate and live there as facts on the ground making the area appear Jordanian and that this is a crime against humanity and it really would be messy for such accusations to appear in the World Court of Justice.

 

With time, many of the citizens who desire may actually become Israeli citizens after going through some schooling on Israeli and Jewish history such that they would understand why this area is so precious to the Jewish People and why Jews are a people as well as a religion and a nation, probably the sole people fitting all three definitions. Also, there will be those Arabs now that they can sell off their land and homes and can move freely who will desire to return to their original country where they have families and fellow tribespeople and where they would feel more comfortable. To these people Israel promises to give them some degree of aid, not enough to make then independently wealthy, but make the move more comfortable but they would also sign a promise of never returning. Israel would ask that the United States, United Nations and European Union and any other groups or nations assist these people in restoring their lives and returning home. Israel will have fulfilled her part. Even those who go seeking brighter shores anywhere in the world that, once they have received all the necessary paperwork and acceptance to immigrate, then Israel would offer them a similar assistance package to make the move easier on them. These packages are not bribes as they are insufficient in size to ever be seen as such, they are to aid the people in relocating. We assist Jews coming to Israel, often far less than they might hope, but the least we can do is assist non-Jews desiring to leave though we invite all to remain and build a bright future in Israel.

 

We are sure we overlooked much, and this would make a start, but first the world need stop with their mad rush to destroy our little nation. We have returned home and here we are to stay. We have yearned for centuries, millennia for some, to return to Eretz Yisroel and to Yerushalayim and now that we have, we are not moving. Remember, for the largest part, none of you desire having Jews within your borders so leave us alone within our borders. And while we are on borders, the promise was everything west of the Jordan River and short of Gibraltar, well, maybe just the Mediterranean’s edge though the next land mass is Gibraltar. Oddly enough, Israel actually desires to improve the life of the average Arab family residing in Judea and Samaria. To that end, we should remove those who are stealing any chance for a future from their children by refusing to educate them and instead inciting them making them weapons in their futile fight. They seldom sacrifice their own, but freely throw the rest of the people’s children into a caldron of fire, sacrificing them to Ba’al just as was once the way in these lands before the Jews arrived. They would sacrifice their children to a stone effigy as part of religious celebrations serving their leadership. The leaders chose their children for sacrifice from the families which they believed required an attitude adjustment. Then they held the celebration whipping all into a frenzied hysteria much like the instigation from Mahmoud Abbas does with the broadcasts on television and radio which augments the education indoctrination system. The population now consists of mostly those raised with that indoctrination but Israel is willing to attempt to salvage those they can. Retrieving those who have been raised under the throws of Ba’al is never easy. When Joshua entered these lands, he was instructed to kill all the followers of Ba’al as they were beyond being retrieved. Joshua still tried to save those who he thought were retrievable and that is how some explain the problems we face today. The Arabs living under Abbas and his henchmen need saving more than anything else and Israel is willing to give them the required effort. The world need take the first step and permit the removal of the evil within their midst, the Arabists who sacrifice innocents for their personal gain, and that is all that would be required.

Middle East Peace Made Impossible by Israel

 

Yes, you read the title correctly though I cannot take credit for that phrase. That has been the attitude and agreed policy of the Arab world as declared by the Arab League in Khartoum, Sudan on September 1, 1967 (one day before my birthday, what a lousy present) when they unanimously approved the Khartoum Resolution. The most famous quote, if only due to our usage of it, are the three No’s, No peace with Israel, No recognition of Israel, No negotiations with Israel. When Egyptian President made peace with Israel in direct negotiations with Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, the Arab League soon afterwards removed Egypt from the Arab League. Egypt was subsequently readmitted as the Arab League cannot really claim to represent the Arabs and not include the Arab nation with the largest population. Having Jordan also make peace with Israel did not exactly help the Arab League as evicting every nations for breaking the three No’s rules would have left the body denuded of much of the Arab nations in time, and they realized this. Their hope when they drafted the Khartoum Resolution was that in a few years, after they had rearmed and initiated fixes which would make their militaries more effective, then they would all come together and bring about the destruction of Israel. This was their reaction to the June 1967 Six Day War, where the war was initiated by Egypt and Syria, at that time under a form of alliance and conjoined leadership under Gamal Abdel Nasser, which started with war rhetoric in almost every broadcast as well as massed troops along the Golan Heights and the across the entirety of the Negev-Sinai Peninsula borders.

 

Israeli intelligence had come across battle plans that denoted a presumed time for the initiation of hostilities and Israel planned accordingly. Very early on that morning the Israeli Air Force launched their preemptive strike, an action permitted in the Rules of War allowing any nation the right to act offensively when facing certain and immediate threat by hostile nations and still considered as a defensive move. The Israeli intelligence went as far as to denote for the pilots which planes on the airfields were dummies and which were actual aircraft. Pilots were told to memorize the positions, especially of the dummy aircraft as they were rarely moved, and to strike any aircraft that was not in any of those positions. Reports on the effectiveness of the strike vary on the percentages of the Egyptian and Syrian aircraft destroyed, with numbers ranging from two thirds to over ninety-five percent, with the main thing being that in this one strike the Israelis had won the air war and now had total air superiority. What is important to remember for the debate raging today over Judea and Samaria (West Bank) is that Jordan was not one of the initial participants. Upon King Hussein bin Talal hearing the glowing reports coming over Radio and Television of the Egypt and Syria grand victories, he paid attention. The further news that they were crushing the weak and pathetic Israel forces with the Egyptian and Syrian forces to meet in the center of Tel Aviv imminently, he could no longer resist. Well, King Hussein bin Talal also wanted to share in the glory of being amongst the destroyers of the Zionist Entity, Israel. The Israelis pleaded, begged him not to believe the lies and propaganda and to remain neutral. King Hussein bin Talal thought that assuredly the Israelis were losing, why else would they plead so pathetically for him to stay from the war. Jordan attacked on the second day of the war. Israel diverted one division to meet the Jordanian attacks, sent some air cover, and armored troops. The rest, as they say, is history and Israel retook, liberated is a better term, the Judean and Samarian areas that Jordan had illegally occupied since 1948. Yes, you read that correctly, Jordan occupied, Israel liberated, the land was supposed to be part of Israel since the agreements made between 1920 and 1925 and formalized in numerous treaties, conventions and declarations. Got that? Good.

 

The Arabs, or at least the Egyptians and the Syrians, did not have to wait very long for the rematch, which came Yom Kippur morning of 1973. This was probably the greatest and most favorable of conditions for an Arab victory, which appeared inevitable with their initial gains and the Israeli confusion. With the majority of the military and nearly all reservists at Synagogue for High Holiday Prayers and nobody answering telephones, listening to the radio or watching television, how were they to gather the troops? The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) had to resort to jeeps traveling from Synagogue to Synagogue with loud speakers mounted declaring the emergency. As the soldiers scrambled to get their gear, they faced another problem, where was their unit joining up? IDF soldiers began forming their own units with the others who were available even to the point of arming clerks and other non-combat soldiers and headed for the front lines in whatever formation they could establish. With time, they formed up units and Command became aware of what facilities and troops they had and where they were located and began reorganizing into actual strike groups. After taking horrendous losses and losing large numbers of troops, the remainder was gathering but too late for those already facing dire situations on the front lines. Some units fought to the last man but most, faced with no alternative but surrender or die, surrendered. The forces gathered under emergency conditions though somehow held a secondary front with some tall tales told, some even presumably verified. The IDF prevailed and the end lines of the conflict did not change. At the end of the conflict, Israeli troops were within a few miles of Damascus and closing on Cairo and Alexandria. Under pressures from Russia and Israeli “ally” the United States, Israel returned all the way back to the Golan Heights and the Suez Canal.

 

The official position of the Arab League is stated by the Palestinian Authority leadership. The Arab League meets with Mahmoud Abbas, and before him Yasser Arafat, and the rest of the Palestinian leadership on a regular basis where tactics and other necessities are discussed. Usually the most pressing issue is the one any normal person would not expect, the need for more money. The Palestinian Authority received billions of dollars and Euros of aid from the United States, European Union, United Nations and numerous individual European nations all on top of what the Arab nations such as Saudi Arabia gift to them. They have received sufficient funding that made Yasser Arafat a billionaire, has made Mahmoud Abbas a billionaire and kept him in power against all odds simply because he has bought the support of sufficient numbers of commanders in the security forces and other leading figures in the Palestinian power structure. Many of these people are multi-millionaires and some approaching, of not breaching, into billionaire status. Proof of the excessive funding of the Palestinian Authority is evidenced by the planned meeting halls, barracks (one must plan for safety in one abode), and living quarters (rather lavish living quarters) all for Mahmoud Abbas to be built near Ramallah (pictured below). The complex is expected to cost thirteen million dollars and include four thousand square meters of building space sitting on twenty-seven square meters of land including parking lot. The structure is to be referred to as the Presidential Guest Palace. Nothing too ostentatious about that title, is there? Abbas in meetings with the Arab league usually runs into difficulties when he has been meeting with the Israelis in events referred to as peace negotiations. He has regularly informed them there will never be any peace and that he is simply leading the Israelis down the garden path collecting concessions and land while step-by-step pushing the Jews westward into the sea.

 

Mamoud Abbas planned masion estimated cosr of thirteen million dollars but will end up costing far more after required kickbacks

 

These words are just the beginning of what Abbas has said in Arabic, when he speaks in English, the worlds are inconsequential, as he has explained to the Arab League and to the Palestinian people. He warned them that when he speaks to them in Arabic the Westerners do not listen or understand as they are too lazy or unconcerned about Israel to go to the effort of translating these speeches and he is free to speak truth. On the other hand, when he speaks is English he simply says sweet words that they want to hear and smiles as a smile and sweet words will win their affections and empties their pockets. He gives the West exactly what Islam demands of him, Taqiyya (defined below in graphic). He uses these deceptions to steal their money just as Muhammad did to the caravan merchants and is constantly moving Israel towards a position in which they will be unable to defend their lands. His only aim is the eventual Arab conquest of their lands from the usurper Jews, the Zionists who stole their lands. To hear what Abbas really says one need only go to MEMRI web site and search for videos, news articles and whatever else you might want to find out what is said in Arabic. These clips, televised speeches and articles, more often than not, never seem to appear in newspapers or discussions amongst Western politicians. The few who do mention such items end up needing twenty-four hour a day protection and live their lives in hiding or close to it with some requiring untold protections such as Geert Wilders and Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

Back on subject, as the title says, Middle East Peace Made Impossible by Israel is a true but hopefully not valid statement. The problem is not that Israel will not accept some compromises, she had made offers considered generous even by President William Jefferson Clinton and, in this case, Yasser Arafat walked out of the meeting in Paris, returned to Ramallah and launched the Second Intifada. In that case, President Clinton had met with Arafat receiving what he demanded for making peace. Arafat gave him a presumably lengthy list of conditions, a group of which he knew Israel would never accept. He made one vital miscalculation, he was offering peace, real peace, or so he had stated. President Clinton then met with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and by the time everything was said and done, the deal was accepted by the Israelis. Arafat walked out because he had been caught and had miscalculated how far exactly the Israelis were willing to bend to reach a peace agreement. Conditions Arafat saw as back breaking unacceptability were in fact hard and difficult sacrifices, but in the end, peace made the Israelis to bend past their breaking points for peace. There were a few more offers made which were called the Taba Summit. The efforts terminated, which coincided with the Inauguration of President George W. Bush and the elections in Israel, with the changes in leadership and Arab intractability leading to its failure. Israeli negotiator Shlomo Ben-Ami stated about the efforts, “We made progress, substantial progress. We are closer than ever to the possibility of striking a final deal.” He perhaps was correct, but closer to what will always produce a negative response, as the other side is unable to make any peace that leaves you in existence is a fruitless accomplishment. On the other side, Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat stated, “My heart aches because I know we were so close. We need six more weeks to conclude the drafting of the agreement.” There exists a problem with Mr. Erekat’s words, almost all of his words, as all one need do is negate the meaning of what he states when he says peace and replace them with the ideas of total victory and the elimination of the Jewish State. The one credit people need to grant the leadership of Hamas, they mean what they say. There is an agreement between the Palestinian Authority who never removed from their Charter the stipulation that they exist to eradicate Israel. The difference is that Hamas goes one step further and simply means to eradicate Jews everywhere.

The means by which Israel makes reaching any peace impossible is that Israel exists as a Jewish State with a majority Jewish population and governance which holds to Jewish values, which is to say Judeo-Christian values as the differences between the two are minor when one weighs their politics and relations with other nations. The Arabs will accept an Israel with a majority Muslim Arab population and claims that the Jews would be safe as Israel is a democracy. The truth is the existence of election and rule by majority votes does not guarantee safety if the majority deem one group no longer acceptable to live on this Earth. With an Arab Muslim majority population Israel would be very similar to the description in James Bovard’s book, Lost Rights: The Destruction of American Liberty (1994), on page 333, where one reads, “Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.” In this case the Muslims would be the wolves and Jews the lamb. That is quite unlike Israel today where the Jews and the Muslims are equal citizens within Israel. Claiming that the Israelis have anything to do with the rule of the Arab Palestinians is false as they are ruled entirely by the Palestinian Authority and the reason they have not had an election in over a decade is because Abbas knows he would lose his office and the gravy train that comes with that office. The fact that if he did not leave fast enough before the election results and loss of security forces protecting him would also mean he would lose more than an election. The interactions between Israeli political entities are through negotiations. Security is applied solely for two reasons, first, to prevent terrorists from succeeding in any plans to harm anyone including the settlers who legally reside where they are under current international law, and second, whenever Palestinian Arabs are entering Israeli lands for protection of Israelis and to assure they have a valid reason. For all intents and purposes, the crossing out from the Palestinian Authority controlled area whether into Israel or Jordan is the same, they are basically entering another country. This is even more natural for Jordan as a number of Palestinian Arabs still maintain their Jordanian passports and have citizenship identification proving their being Jordanian citizens. Still, Jordan considers them Palestinian Arabs even to include those they forced to move into the areas after they illegally annexed the lands after 1948.

 

Israel is not going to meet the final two demands the Palestinian Arabs, the Saudi Arabian Peace Initiative and every other dealing with Israel contain. These both have the same end in sight, no more Jewish State. News flash, there is but one Jewish State just as there is one French State, one Japanese State, one British State, two Chinese States, two Korean States and twenty-two Arab States oops, well, you understand. The truth is the Jews in Israel have nowhere else they can go. Half, approximately, of the Jews in Israel have either one parent or both parents who came to Israel after facing either harsh treatment or threat of death from the rulers of the Arab state in which they lived throughout the MENA* area. These nations are not about to take back a single Jew, especially those born in Israel. The same is true about the European nations and Russia; they too will refuse to repatriate their Jews and especially their progeny. That leaves the United States and here too there would be a great problem as there is a record of how the United States acts when faced with near to one thousand Jews fleeing a tyrannical nation bent on their eradication. This action was taken by Franklin Delano Roosevelt regarding the ship the MS St. Louis. May 1939, also referred to as The Voyage of the Damned, which was also the name of the 1976 dramatic film based on the book written by Gordon Thomas and Max Morgan-Witts of the same title. To end the suspense, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt decided, after Cuba refused to permit the Jews from exiting the ship, that the United States had no obligation for the rescue of these refugees and they can find safety in Europe. One must keep in mind that the leaders of both Britain and the United States knew fully about the Holocaust and decided that by allowing it continuation it would weaken Germany, as resources would necessarily be diverted to murdering Jews instead of fighting allied soldiers. The claim was these were tactics, allowing the mass slaughter of approaching if not exceeding twelve-million innocent people simply because they were different or handicapped. The list of those to be exterminated is an easy one to compile, Nazi Germany targeted Jews, Roma (Gypsies), mentally challenged, handicapped, political prisoners, Polish, Russian and some simply because they upset some high German official. The Jews of Israel would receive the same treatment today if Israel fell and they were facing annihilation. Not to worry, we know this and that is why when forced to we fight with every ounce of our fiber, all our lives depend on that. The Arabs can lose as many wars against Israel as they instigate, as Israel is not going to take their lands and the people living there. That was part of the reason for returning the Sinai Peninsula, Israel did not desire taking in the people or defending the lands. Israel is not expansionary. All Israel desired is that which was promised us, which includes Judea and Samaria. We do not desire being refugees in another land, we just want the land and freedom to rule ourselves we were promised. All the Arabs want is that promise rescinded and the Jews removed by whatever means necessary.

Will President Trump Really Demand Same Old Concessions of Israel?

 

President Trump is definitely not Barack Hussein Obama as he does not even set any red lines to turn pink as he backs away digging a ditch deeper and deeper and never figuring out he should stop digging. President Trump does not believe in red lines, he just acts. He has proven it time after time. The first sign that things were going to be drastically different came early on at the United Nations. Nikki Haley was President Trump’s voice of change at the United Nations presumably laying down the law that the United States is done with Israel bashing in the General Assembly and elsewhere at the United Nations and will no longer allow the world to continue ignoring the war crimes committed throughout the rest of the world. Syria just found this out in probably the only language Bashir al-Assad and his ilk understand. The destruction of the airfield used to launch the planes used in the chemical attack with fifty Tomahawk missiles was overkill and that was the point. This was more than a message to Syria; this was a message to North Korea, to Iran, to Libya, to Venezuela, to the terror organizations throughout the world and to any dictator who was thinking of popping his head up and murdering, even potentially Putin. Unfortunately this was also a wake-up call taken by Hamas, Hezballah, Fatah, PLO, Islamic Jihad and all the smaller groups often overlooked but no less violent.

 

It is that those last groups and the message they received which will be the real problem. They realize that the way to persuade Trump is to show him dead babies and children, lots of dead babies and children. We can expect that there will be another round of violence with Hamas and Islamic Jihad or Hezballah or both as well as trouble with Fatah, PLO and the Palestinian Authority Security Forces, actually the PA’s armed forces, and the one thing we are guaranteed to see will be dead babies and children, lots of dead babies and children. The pictures will be plastered across the media, the newspapers, television, everywhere. There will be these images even if they need to stage them or, if necessary, murder them themselves. The blame will be aimed at Israel and many in the media will reinforce the story line even to the point of editorializing and expanding on the story line with great flourishes and emphasis on the horrors of these dead children. All the children shown on the media will be from the side of the Palestinians with none being shown from Israel. Many will be asking why this has come to be. The answer is simple; Israel spends millions upon millions of shekels on shelters for the people, armoring schools, kindergartens, children’s centers and required that all new residences have a bombproof room built into every apartment or home. The first concern in Israel is the safety of the people while the military remains out in the open for as long as there is any threat to the people. On the Arab side they have tunnels and command centers dug in well under ground where the terrorists hide coming out inside people’s homes firing rockets into Israel and then disappearing back underground hoping to get there before the Israelis can fire on the launch point of the attack. When the Arab terror forces do attack, they will do so from behind civilian cover using children as their bullet proof vests knowing that the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) will not engage them if doing so endangers civilians, especially children.

 

Those who have witnessed previous wars between Israel and the terrorist forces surrounding her know the story and understand what happens. Unfortunately, the majority of people watching the news broadcasts will jump to the exact conclusion the terrorists desire, that the Israelis are slaughtering children needlessly. Hamas, Fatah, PLO, Islamic Jihad and Hezballah have all been known to shoot from atop apartment buildings using the balconies as their launching pads while ringing the roof with women and children in the hopes that Israel will return fire without checking to see who might get harmed. Where this can occur as not every target which is launching rockets into Israel can be checked out before returning fire, but Israel does so whenever possible and even at times when doing so means they will miss the opportunity to return fire on that target. Israeli pilots when engaging a target must check with an information officer who also checks with an IDF Human Rights Officer who is a lawyer specialized in human rights and these officers will have either a drone or spotter aircraft checking the target and only if it appears that there will be no civilian casualties is the go ahead given. Israel drops leaflets and sends radio broadcasts and SMS messages as well as cell phone calls to all the civilians in a region where they are going to be operating telling them where they can go to be safe. The IDF does this knowing that the terrorists will also either leave the area or set up ambushes for the IDF soldiers sent to clear the area. As insane as this appears, the IDF still manages to operate with a high degree of proficiency despite such warnings telegraphing exactly where they will be about to operate. They often do such warnings simply to get into an area where surveillance has indicated there exist entrances into the tunnel entrances knowing that it is worth giving away where they are coming if it will allow them to gain entrance to the tunnel systems where the command and control operations are hiding and where the stores of rockets and often launch positions are also concealed.

 

This is not the only problem the IDF soldiers face. Hamas places their top commanders, leaders and central command and control operations center in the basement of Gaza’s largest hospital. This is known to the world but the media will never utter a word about this because doing so would mean that their reporters would be thrown from Gaza if they were lucky and worse if not. The other dirty little secret never discussed is that all reports, pictures and media the networks and news services send from Gaza is first approved by Hamas officials and any failure in following these prescribed procedures results in reporters being expelled from Gaza and no more coverage from the scene. The media outlets do not want to have such occur as the best pictures are made available by the Arab stringers who provide the media with the pictures they use in their reports. They also receive most of their stories from other stringers all of whom are actually Hamas or Islamic Jihad information and propaganda officers. This is how stories such as the shooting death of Mohammed al-Dura, the twelve year old boy who French television news showed huddled behind cement barrels (video below revealing hoax as presented by DePaul University) with his father and presumably shot be IDF troops during a shootout with PLO terrorists. The story proved to be Pallywood and not reality and the entire story unraveled over the following months which included a high profile slander trial against the reporter who revealed the hoax by the French Television 2. There is an entire system producing such events to try and make the IDF appear as child killers, indiscriminant murderers, and simply horrific criminals and the system is referred to using an innocuous term of Pallywood. One of the major contributors to this is the Tamimi family where the father uses his children as props often sending his young daughter to curse, spit, kick and generally abuse IDF soldiers in the hopes to find that one soldier who loses his cool and even just push the girl as she is well versed in taking the fall making it look like she was struck viciously. The Timimi father was invited to talk to a third grade class in the Ithaca, New York Beverly J. Martin Elementary School on human rights and Israeli crimes in particular against Palestinians. As if the job of the average IDF soldier was not difficult enough and besmirched in the media sufficiently without any real objectivity.

 

 

With their new understanding of President Trump’s sensitivity towards any horrors involving children, we can expect this information to be utilized and stories of Israeli brutality and their general disregard for Arab children to increase exponentially. But even this aside, there is another hint of coming events which we find to be an even bigger threat. This was something we feared and warned that the Prime Minister must do everything in his power to inform President Trump of the futility of following down the “Two State Solution” road in our article Advice for Netanyahu When Visiting Trump before the two men first met and then how the refusal by Prime Minister Netanyahu to even speak about the “Two State Solution” being a dead end with President Trump and instead boring in laser-like on Iran, a problem President Trump was already on the Israeli side to begin with, instead would lead to another trip down that road in Israel and the Netanyahu-Trump Effect. Rumor now has it that President Trump is about to impose a requirement that Israel once again make concession to the Palestinian Authority and Mahmoud Abbas in particular in order to reengage and get the peace process moving ahead after being moribund for the past decade and a half. The reason is easy to understand. No matter what Israel gives to Mahmoud Abbas, he cannot accept the deal and remain alive. Without the IDF along with the Shin Bet and other Israeli intelligence networks protecting Abbas from Hamas, ISIS, Islamic Jihad and even others in Fatah and the PLO, the other two groups which he presumably rules. One need understand that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is also the Chairman of the political party Fatah, the terrorist organization PLO as well but still needs an entire company of soldiers surrounding him in order to survive the day and they require the IDF and Israeli intelligence to prevent any serious threats from reaching those soldiers. Further, Mahmoud Abbas has made a simple promise, that he will never accept any deal less than the complete eradication of the Jewish State, the Zionist Entity as the Arab World calls Israel. Abbas is just one person in the entire Arab opposition to Israel and his assignment is to carry on the Yasser Arafat role of pure opposition to everything Israel. The only real difference between Arafat and Abbas is Arafat sported a two day beard growth and often wore a revolver strapped to his side (even when addressing the United Nations, the only person to manage to do so), Abbas wears a suit and tie and is clean shaven.

The entire Arab World and their relations with Israel can be traced to Khartoum, Sudan and the Khartoum Resolution and its “Three No’s” agreed upon and sworn to by the Arab League and all the Arab leadership. These “Three No’s” were “No peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, and no negotiations with Israel.” When Egypt made peace with Israel the Arab League was troubled as what could they do as Egypt is the most populous Arab state. Well, the Arab League temporarily voted and Egypt was suspended from the Arab League in 1979 after signing a peace treaty with Israel and then Egypt was readmitted in 1989. There was an even more violent reaction to the Camp David Accords where Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar El-Sadat signed a peace treaty in 1979. United States President Carter was present at the signing and given large amounts of credit despite his insistence that the peace be negotiated into a grand peace including the establishing of a Palestinian State which Egypt not only could not force to happen and was not even interested in trying and President Carter’s constant insisting almost crashed the treaty. Fortunately Egyptian President Anwar El-Sadat was not to be deterred as he realized that his country would only gain from peace and would not be denied and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin was equally driven to make the peace work. Egyptian President Anwar El-Sadat paid the ultimate price as a Muslim Brotherhood member and soldier in the Egyptian military broke from formation during a pass in review and rushed the Presidential stands shooting Sadat assassinating him. Fortunately the peace survived beyond him and despite being a cold peace, that peace continues to exist and under President Sisi there has even been increasing coordination concerning the terrorists and criminal enterprises present in the Sinai Peninsula. Jordanian King Hussein followed Egypt’s lead and made peace with Israel in 1994 and surrendered their claims and previous illegal annexation of Judea and Samaria which they had renamed West Bank to remove the links to Jewish and Israeli history.

 

It took another two years for the concept to arise that the lands Jordan had occupied illegally and Israel liberated in the 1967 Six Day War should be stolen from Israel again and made into an Arab State for some invented group of Arabs named the Palestinians. This was brought about coinciding with the first Intifada and was fully accepted by the world which has been anxiously attempting to take as much of the lands left for Israel, the mere 22% of the original lands of the British Mandate, and turn them into another failed Arab State. The entire world is aware that the sole purpose of such a state would be identical to that of the Hamastan State in Gaza, and that is to launch rockets into Israel murdering as many Jews as possible until the State of Israel has been erased from the world and the Jews no longer allowed to determine their own futures being returned to living at the permission of some foreign state being chased from here to there around the world stateless. This will once again enter the world stage as President Trump attempts to buy a peace which can only be purchased with the Jewish blood of the entirety of Israel in sacrifice after sacrifice. After Israel regained the lands illegally occupied by Jordan in the Six Day War, they should have been incorporated into Israel and the Jordanian citizens residing in these lands sent back to Jordan. If Israel cared to be benevolent, then they might be given the value of any property they had occupied and that should have been that. Israel absorbed almost nine-hundred-thousand Jews alienated from their homelands in the Arab world and the Arab world should have been made to accept the less than eight-hundred-thousand Arabs who had fled Israel in 1948 fully expecting the Mufti’s promise to have been realized and return in a few weeks after the Jewish infestation (we believe that is how he referred to the Jews in Israel) had been eradicated. The Jews managed, with the grace of Hashem, to survive that war despite losing some lands to Egypt (Gaza) and Jordan (Judea and Samaria and half of Jerusalem). Once these lands had been reunited with Israel in 1967 the Arabs residing there in these areas should have been returned to their countries of origin from before the 1967 war (Gazans to Egypt and Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem to Jordan plus Golan Heights to Syria). As far as Israel surrendering lands for another Arab state, such a concept should be pronounced dead on arrival as every time Israel has retreated from lands they have sooner or later become a haven for terrorists and criminal activities. This is what occurred in southern Lebanon (Hezballah), in Gaza (Hamas and Islamic Jihad) and after some time now in the Sinai Peninsula (ISIS, al-Qaeda and criminal gangs). Should Israel ever be forced to surrender Judea and Samaria (East Jerusalem has been annexed and reunited with the remainder of Jerusalem and the Arabs residing there have been granted a limited form of citizenship lacking only the right to vote in national elections for the time being), then at best the PA will be replaced by the PLO or worse by Hamas, ISIS, Hezballah or even Iran. This inevitability must never be permitted to happen and any demand for Israel to make further concessions, even if it is giving Abbas one shekel, should be rejected and fought with every ounce of energy available as the entire concept of a “Two State Solution” must be put to rest permanently.
