Abbas Issues Demands so Israel Must Demand Abbas Go

 

We would love to say the story has shown definitive signs of change, but alas, they have this ugly persistence to remain the same. There is a standing reason why things have not and will not change, that reason is Mahmoud Abbas. The United States under President Trump originally demanded that the Palestinian Authority (PA) cease all payment to terrorists as well as their families for their murder of Israelis, especially Jews. This was an appalling demand for Abbas who treated it as an anathema to his continued role as President. Abbas threatened to dissolve the PA and resign from the twelfth year of his four-year term forcing Israel to deal with the problems of providing for the PA residents, the PA’s Arabs. Israel, according to Abbas, would be incapable of providing services for the Arabs currently presumably provided for by the PA. What makes his threat a joke is that Israel already provides much of the electricity, water, sewage, roads, gas and other utilities and services, not all, but most and currently for free. Should Israel be forced by the dissolution of the PA to care for the Arabs, it would likely work out as a boon to both the utility companies and the Arabs as well. Their economy would no longer be subjected to the harsh regulations, taxes and bullying by Abbas and the PA henchmen they call their Security Forces. They are more like enforcers for the mafia which runs the territory. The IDF already provides the security for Abbas and his cabal, so keeping the peace will not be much of an additional demand. The individual towns and cities could return to being ruled by the dominant family of their area and under this hold, semiautonomous rule.

 

That is the reason that Abbas would never go through with the threat to dissolve the PA. He knows that the people over whom he presumes to rule would soon celebrate the freedom they would gain once he dissolved the PA and Israel removed Abbas, his officers, the security forces and the remainder of the PA power structure and turned the Arabs over to their true family leadership, each town to its family and each family responsible for the peace in their area. These families would actually work to prevent terrorism from emanating from amongst their people, their Arab friends and neighbors, as they would prefer not to have the IDF interfering with their authority and rule. Their only demand is for their people to reside in peace and have security and for them to flourish and live a full and healthy life. Israel using the IDF would provide the security from outside interference in exchange for the Arab lead families to secure their towns and prevent terrorists from originating there. The families would collect taxes and with those funds pay for the utilities and other services provided by Israeli companies and the government and be responsible for whatever tax agreement was made with Israel. The relationship would be mutually beneficial, as the Israelis would prevent inter-familial fighting and other threats to the leaders of each town.

 

Abbas realizes that he would no longer be receiving the millions upon millions of Euros and Dollars from all the fools in the world. Abbas and his coterie are never going to give up their little fraud suckling at the teat of the United Nations, UNRWA, European Union, United States, European nations and the other nations of the world fool enough to contribute to the PA racket. They have all become millionaires with them each having stuffed away hundreds of millions of Dollars and Euros into their Swiss accounts. Add the fact that Abbas and his closest cadre get to travel the world freely and be treated by the leadership of Europe, the United States, the United Nations and other organizations as royalty given the respect with dinners and banquets. And then there is the coup de grace, all the time they get to plan and execute terror attacks against Israel and murder all the Jews they can and the world gives them cover and a complete pass and the more Jews they murder, the greater the honors they receive, especially in Europe and the United Nations.

 

For a terror master there is no sweeter gig than the one Yasser Arafat set up with the assistance of the United States State department and a cadre of leftist Israelis who saw the opportunity to get their names down in history as the great peacemakers. Abbas inherited this PA from Arafat and, playing Yasser in a suit and tie, has played the part to the hilt and raped the world for his blood money. The real sadness is the great eagerness with which the world praises this murderous bloodsucker and Jew killer. And the game is starting anew with President Trump and his administration. President Trump need be given a degree of credit for his appointment of United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and he displayed true anger over the lies told by Abbas at the White House press conference once he was shown the reality. But now, it appears, President Trump has fallen into the regimen proposed most likely by the State Department, and likely endorsed fully by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, of sending emissaries proposing peace and begging at the feet of Mahmoud Abbas waiting to be told what the United States must squeeze from Israel so that there can be a photo op at the White House with Abbas, President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu before Abbas betrays his word and walks away from any and all promises blaming Israel for existing as the reason for his betrayal. Then the Europeans, European Union, United Nations and the State Department all condemn Israel for missing another opportunity to surrender completely before the PA. We have witnessed this same song and dance ever since Oslo in September of 1993 and it will continue until something changes, and we have an idea what it will take.

There is one dirty little secret about this charade and that is that those who started this fiasco are the only ones who can end it. Abbas sure will never end this fools errand as he gains wealth, power, respect, legitimacy and most of all, an unending flow of money. That leaves only Israel who can bring this debacle to an end, but it will take somebody with great self-assurance and a brave heart. It will take a Prime Minister of Israel ready to stand up to the world and say loudly and clearly, “Never Again!” This Prime Minister will not crave the power or the prestige of the office and will have pursued the position mainly to use it to an end which will place their name in history and legends. They seek these neither but know they will be their legacy though they will be scorned most the days of their remaining life. This Prime Minister who we cannot name for they may not yet be born, probably has not even dreamed of the office or their place in history and we know not if they will be a man or woman, we just know they will live with a singleness of purpose once they realize their singular dream. They will win the office by doing something unusual, pure honesty, as they will promise that they finally end the peace which has eluded all their predecessors. They will promise a peace which will make all Israelis happy in time and will make the main settlements and all of Jerusalem all part of Israel proper and end the wars with the Arabs. Their coalition will be solid but depending upon the support of at least on rival party which joined the coalition conditional on peace being reached as expected.

 

This Prime Minister will do the United States, United Nations, European Union, European nations and the world the favor of allowing one attempt at making peace with the leader of the PA. When the PA does as usual and demands the release of two-thousand prisoners and another freeze on settlement building in order to meet, this Prime Minister does the unexpected and releases the prisoners and agrees to the freeze, but only if their meeting produces progress. The meeting with the sitting President of the United States and his emissaries and the President of the PA will go exactly as the Prime Minister expected as the PA will demand the 67 borders, half of Jerusalem, all the Jewish Holy Places in Hevron, Old City of Jerusalem, and the heartlands of historic Eretz Yisroel as described in Torah and the remainder of the prisoners released. The Prime Minister claimed that such concessions would require more deliberations and waited for the right and perfect moment, the photo op on the White House lawns where the Prime Minister was expected to make nice, pledge their support for the ‘two state solution’ and shake the hand of the PA leader. When the time comes for the Israeli Prime Minister to speak, they speak from their heart knowing that they will likely not be Prime Minister by morning. They speak truth and state that the Oslo Accords are dead and have been since the early twenty-first century. He will explain that Israel will give each and ever PA Arab the opportunity to emigrate after selling their lands and assets at a fair price and a special relocation allowance or they can remain as a legal resident alien with full rights accorded such. They will have religious rights, land rights, legal rights but will not have political rights except in local elections in the towns which will be designated as Arab ruled.

 

Upon a stormy return to Israel where some thousands of leftist demonstrators meet this Prime Minister at the airport, holding signs claiming their leader has murdered any hope for peace for all eternity. The Prime Minister kept to the announcement and immediately sought any nation willing to take the PA leadership and the commanders of their security forces. Within a few weeks these PA officials have all be relocated to the nations who voluntarily gave them refuge, some amongst the Arab world with others went to Europe and even a few were accepted by the United States. All these arrangements were negotiated and conducted with assistance from the United States, European Union and United Nations.

 

There was a suit brought before the International Criminal Court by the PA, but they were distraught as the verdict was that Israel had the legal rights to the lands from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. It later became known that the United States Secretary of State had visited the PA leadership before they left Washington and advised them against attempting taking their claims before any of the World Courts, as they would most definitely lose. They were warned that all their predecessors knew that the only means of gaining any of the lands set aside by the League of Nations for the formation of the Jewish State was through the same means as was used to form the Arab states of Jordan and Gaza, through the agreements of the Jews, the Zionists themselves. As long as the Zionists, the Jews did not release their claims to the land, then the lands of the British Mandate Lands would remain an aside for the Jewish State. The sole reason Jordan was permitted to be formed was because the Zionist Congress signed an agreement, the Churchill White Paper in which they released the lands east of the Jordan to the British to use to absolve their promise to the Hashemites and the Arabs. Gaza was wrenched from the Jews and Israel through the perfidy of the works of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and President George W. Bush who knew they were telling deceits to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon but he was ill and seeking immortality as the one who made peace, and instead he placed Hamas forever on the southern border of Israel. That is how those lands were torn from the grasp of Israel. For the meantime, let us pray that no more Prime Ministers will seek to be the one who makes peace at the cost of more of our holy lands before a real Prime Minister will exercise the right of a sovereign state to defend and protect all within their rightful borders.

Now the Saudi Peace Initiative Springs Back to Life

 

Every four to eight years, whenever the United Stated changed the occupant in the White House, we hear the Sirens’ call from Jeddah, ‘Come hither and hear our magical plan to end the strife throughout the world.’ Of course the Saudis are selling their peace initiative for Israel to return to the borders from before the Six Day War, the Green Line and for Israel to permit a fraction of the Arab refugees to settle within Israel, only the ones who can prove their original residence was within Israel plus the dividing of Jerusalem making two-thirds of the Capital City no longer inhabitable or even useable by Israel as snipers will sit upon the high spots and shoot Israelis who enter their field of fire. What is left untold is the danger to Jerusalem of being cut off by Arab forces from the remainder of Israel. Further, Tel Aviv and Ben Gurion International Airport will become direct fire zones for rockets and aircraft will be unsafe flying into or out of Israel. Lastly, those few Arab refugees will number at least three million and Israel will face reintegrating the one million Jews who will be uprooted from their homes and sent packing back to Israel. You have to understand, while Israel must be forced to accept Muslim Arabs in the millions, not a single Jew can be permitted to reside on the Arab lands. That has always struck us as a tad bit like what the United States would call a hate crime and people would be in courts facing charges of discrimination, hey, but these are only Jews, it doesn’t matter in the ways of the world now, does it. The fact that this deal is designed to destroy Israel, both from within and without, also matters little to anybody because the world never desired and even plotted to prevent Israel from ever becoming a successful venture and the fact that, while threatened every day from well before its founding with annihilation, Israel managed to become a success.

 

Jason Greenblatt and the president’s son-in-law and Middle East envoy, Jared Kushner, have been assigned the unenviable plan to tour the Arab world, or at least the pertinent countries, and then head to Israel to meet with the central players where they will find the real reasons for no peace ever being established, or at least we hope they will. First off, they meet with the Israeli Prime Minister, Benyamin Netanyahu, who is actually inconsequential, and then on to the President of the Palestinian Authority (PA), currently Mahmoud Abbas, who is simply the current person carrying on the legacy as it was assigned to Yasser Arafat. That is the dirty little secret which, should the President’s envoys be prescient enough, these men must pry from the unsettling result of their talks. They will find both men speaking of reaching a mutual and lasting peace and their willingness to make sacrifices for peace. There will be a slight difference in their attitudes which is key to the dirty little secret. One of these gentlemen will demand certain concessions and definitions as the requirement for even beginning any negotiations. The demands will appear innocent and inconsequential, but when studied through the lense of the past they represent a set of serious compromises to any hope of a settlement. Nabil Abu Rudeineh, a high representative for the PA, demanded a “clear vision” from the United States on resuming peace talks with Israel and that Abbas “wants clarity” on the two-state solution. The clear vision they are demanding is exactly the same as before, namely, that President Donald Trump and all of his Administration are on board with forcing Israel to make concessions. The clarity they desire on the Two State solution is that their definition will be the sole definition and that the United States is truly with the PA in forcing the Israelis to capitulate. What need be understood is that Mahmoud Abbas is but the spike at the end of the bludgeon, and that behind Abbas is the entire Sunni Arab world who accepted the premise for backing the Palestinian cause as defined by Yasser Arafat. The plan is excessively simply and plainly stated that the plan was to establish a beachhead from which to demand more concessions until Israel was left so weak that the Arab world’s combined forces behind Saudi Arabia and Egypt, along with the now defunct Syria and Lebanon, could and would easily overpower and destroy the Jewish state and then cleanse the lands of the infernal Jews. The plan has been explicitly stated (see videos below) that Israel can be a binational state with Arab rule or the entirety of the area can be granted to the Arabs or Israel can remain a democracy as long as the Arab (Palestinians) be permitted to resettle within Israel with full citizenship, all five million or so of them, making them almost the majority needing just a small percentage of the Arab Israelis to assist their taking full political control. Simply stated, Israel can remain Israel as long as the nation is run by the Arabs and Muslims and the Jews know their place as Dhimmis. The reality is every plan acceptable to the Arabs, represented by the PA, is if there is no Jewish state remaining as a result. This is the initial piece of the puzzle which together makes up the entirety of the dirty little secret.

 

 

 

The plan has been established that the destruction of Israel is the exact and complete end of the desired peace the Arabs seek. They are not seeking all of their aims in the initial peace, they simply want their beachhead from which they will make future demands and through stages destroy Israel. Whatever the PA accepts is not what they actually desire as the finality. There is never to be a finality as long as Israel continues to exists. This has been exactly the desire of the Arab world, the Europeans, much of the United States government. The rest of the world has simply agreed with this historic and simply demonically genocidal demand by the Western and Muslim Worlds as it mattered less than nothing to them as long as they were permitted trade with Israel. Well, the Western World trades with Israel as well as everybody else who desire the advances, technology and other discoveries and inventions which the Israeli develop, so sure, trade is fine as it advances everyone. The Muslim world does not trade with Israel as their revulsion can only be supported if they stick to the belief that Israel does not exist and all the lands remain under Islamic control. To the Muslim world, particularly the Arab Muslims, Israel is nothing more than a wayward province which has temporarily revolted and will require taming and being brought back into the fold and under Islamic rule as no lands once under Islamic rule in perpetuity. The situation is similar to that which exists between Mainland China and Taiwan except Israel stands under greater threat than Taiwan as Israel has no water barrier to make invasion difficult. What is unfortunate is that the Western world is willing to sacrifice the reestablishment of the ancient peoples and their homelands which gave the West and Christianity their foundations which might just be worth a short paragraph itself.

 

The greatest contribution to Western civilization and Christianity by the Israelites, the Jewish People, was, of course, the Ten Commandments (see below). But there was far more as the basis for Judeo-Christian ethics was born from the Old Testament and the writings of the Judges, Prophets and Kings. There were the wise and sagely guidance and admonitions found within Proverbs and Psalms. There was the limitations on a ruler, a king, or any other governing entity formed written in Deuteronomy 17:14-17. The influences of Judaism were largely spiritual but were not limited to simply spiritual. They also were one of the main formers of the centrality of the individual in a society and that every society is the sum of its individuals. Every individual has their effect upon the society just as the society will affect each individual. For this reason, we have the concept that one is their brother’s keeper and that the society is thus responsible for its members. These are simply the very basics from which the whole concept of nobility of the individual and the sanctity of life are derived. This, in turn, leads to the concept that government serves the people and should retain only those powers which are required to maintain order and provide public safety. These were the concepts which led to the Magna Carta, the Declaration of Independence and finally the Bill of Rights. The rest can be researched with a little effort, just be forewarned that the subject is used to defame traditional Judaism and the concepts in Torah and the documents which followed.

The coming months on into years for as long as the Trump Presidency continues, the path will be familiar to those who have watched and understood. There will be demands from the PA for Israel to make the noble and needful sacrifices for peace. They define peace exactly as did the Quran. Peace means Islamic rule over all. This ‘all’ spoken of by the Quran means the entirety of existence where humanity resides. The ‘all’ the PA means only starts with all of Israel and then will melt into the Quranic meaning of all. The sacrifice the PA actually demands is that the Jews of Israel admit that they are inferior and require Muslims to care for them, as they are incapable of acting in a means which would care for their real needs. They also demand the Jews realize that their real needs are to believe in the Quran and convert to Islam. The reasoning is simple and straight-forward. The PA is simply another face of the idea and belief in Islamic superiority and rightful hegemony over all things. Israel is a challenge to the rightness of the Quran as Israel has stolen Islamic lands which cannot be permitted to stand. This is why the PA demands Israel surrender as Islam demands that all surrender to Allah. This has been the story of the entirety from 1948 forward. The Arab nations all invaded Israel on the morning of her independence on May 15, 1948 with the intent of erasing all of Israel and her non-Islamic population. They failed in removing Israel but did take the areas of Gaza, Judea and Samaria. Then, once again, in 1967, the Arabs invaded and this time they lost and lost big. By the end of six days, the war was over and Israel had gained the Golan Heights, Sinai Peninsula, Gaza, Judea and Samaria. Once more in 1973, the Egyptians attempted to destroy Israel with assistance from Syria as Jordan sat this one out. They lost once again and if Israel had not been prevented by the combined threats from much of the world, led by the Soviet Union and the United States, she would have taken Damascus and Cairo, but instead retreated as demanded to the initial lines of the conflict. Since then the tactics were altered and the PA was eventually born in order to make peace between Israel and the Arab world. The terms of that peace remains the same as the previous demands from the Arab world, the destruction of Israel and the subjugation of the Jewish People under Islam. The terms of all we are going to hear will resemble exactly those we have heard from the PA and the Arab world for quite some time. Their demands will remain the same, their words will remain the same, their accusations will remain the same and nothing will ever change because the Islamic demand that the world bend to their rule and their inevitable dominion and superiority has never altered one iota. So, simply put on Led Zeppelin and listen to your favorite tracks, but the most pertinent one for this writing remain The Song Remain the Same (below).

Why the Arabs Will Never Make Peace with Israel

 

There exist three Muslim wars against Israel, two Sunni and one Shiite, and none can make a peace because Islam forbids such a peace. Against infidel, Islam will only permit their forces and leaders to make a ten-year truce called a Hudna. This truce may be broken at any point the Islamic forces believe they have sufficient strength or tactical advantage to defeat their adversaries. Meanwhile, their adversaries must observe the ten-year respite from violence and are often thought to be a permanent cease-fire by the non-Islamic side. Should the Islamic side continue to believe they are unable to defeat their adversary, they too might allow a Hudna to continue despite their history reporting that a prolonged and strategic battle was being fought using diplomacy as their sword. This is often exactly the case in which Israel finds herself. So, with who are these separate and concurrent wars?

 

Let us start with the easiest of these conflicts to describe, the one against the Shiite power. The immediate enemy had been Hezballah which exists in Lebanon. This Shiite militia is backed and armed by Iran and the Grand Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei as its ultimate leader. In Lebanon, their leader is Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah. What is usually unannounced has been the merger of the Lebanese military and the Hezballah Militia. This has provided Hezballah with some very impressive modern American, European and Russian weapon systems. This merging of the two forces and upgrading of the Lebanese Army by President Barak Obama with the full knowledge that the weaponry was to be used by Hezballah against Israel and in the Syria civil war was the reasoning which led Israel to inform the leadership of Lebanon and Hezballah that any attack by either would result in total warfare against both and would include all of Lebanon. This was necessitated by the weaponry given to Lebanon which will now also be at the ready for Hezballah and the fact that Hezballah officers may now order Lebanese troops including pilots necessitating the destruction of the Lebanese air forces in any war with Hezballah, especially any assets taking to the air. Truthfully, Hezballah is at the tip of the spear which is controlled by Iran and used in Syria and Iraq against the Islamic State. Currently, the Syrian war has Iran and Hezballah fighting about all they can handle, and possibly more than they can handle.

 

Turning now to the most ardent of the Sunni, we find ourselves looking to Gaza with Hamas and beyond to the Muslim Brotherhood. This is the direct line of support for Hamas which attempts to supply them via the Mediterranean Sea using fishing boats as curriers or via Sinai Peninsula-Gaza crossings and any remaining tunnels. Both Israel and Egypt face threats from Hamas so both attempt to prevent these provisions from reaching Hamas. Also in Gaza is Islamic Jihad who receives aid from the Muslim Brotherhood as well as from Iran. During periods when Hamas and Israel, Iran’s aid to both groups usually peaks as they attempt to meet such immediate needs, especially with rocket motors. Rocket fire across the border and tunnels under the border are the two major means by which Hamas, Islamic Jihad and minor groups attack Israel. The most prized result from these efforts would be the capture of an Israeli soldier or civilian to hold for ransom. The last ransom was for Gilad Shalit and numbered over one thousand terrorists. Yes, you read that correctly, over one thousand for one soldier. Hamas is currently holding four Israelis, two Israeli citizens who crossed into Gaza on their own accord and the bodies of two soldiers killed in 2014’s Gaza war. Hamas likes to report that there are no negotiations ongoing for the release of either the living civilians or the bodies of the fallen soldiers. This is likely only a valid point due to Hamas demanding extravagant amounts of concessions for the release likely of every terrorist held by Israel. This was their starting point in the last round, demanding the release of approaching five-thousand and finally agreed to just over eleven-hundred. Hamas is also demanding that the embargo on goods used for enforcing bunkers and other military needs be dropped and they permitted full range of freedom on imports to include heavy weaponry. Such concessions would place an army of undeterminable size and equipment on the southern border of Israel posing a far greater threat than is currently faced not to mention they could import tunneling machines capable of even more advanced and larger tunnels into Israel under the border.

 

The other Sunni threat comes from the Arab League and their pet project, the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) and its offshoot, the Palestinian Authority (PA). The interesting item is that there no longer exists a PLO or a PA as Mahmoud Abbas dissolved the PA and removed any cause for the PLO when on Thursday, January 3, 2013, he dissolved the PA and all agreements made by the Oslo Accords and established the nations of Palestine. This was done in reaction to the General Assembly recognition and upgrading of the PA to “observer state” in the United Nations General Assembly. This vote was seen as a sign that the world had decided that Israel had to be forced to face the reality that the State of Palestine had been established as far as the mindset of the world’s governments were concerned. This is why Mahmoud Abbas is seen as the main threat to Israel when in reality without Israeli protection and the intelligence agencies of Israel, Mahmoud Abbas would already either be on some beach enjoying his stolen billions of dollars with a small army protecting him or dead and buried next Yasser Arafat if he was fortunate. Hamas sees the PA, PLO and especially Palestine to be a tool used by Israel to prevent the destruction of the Zionist Entity (Israel). Hamas knows that were they to replace the PA they would be capable of accurately striking at the heart of Tel Aviv. They are convinced that should they bombard central Tel Aviv and destroy many of the main buildings that the Jews would feel threatened and run back to wherever they came from. There are a number of problems with such a theory. The first is whether any of these nations would accept the return of ten if not hundreds of thousands of Jews. That goes especially for nations such as Egypt, Algeria, Libya, Syria, Iraq, Iran and the other Arab nations who thrust out the vast majority if not all of their Jewish populations in the years leading up to 1960. The totals were approaching, if not exceeding, millions of Jews in approximately a dozen years. Add to that the European nations, who largely would prefer not to have to explain to their public why they were accepting these Jews who left once already? Lastly, what about the native-born Jews born of Sabra parents whose families have lived in Israel, often in Jerusalem or Hevron for much of the last twenty-five-hundred years, where are they to run too if not Israel?

 

Should the day come when Arab forces diametrically opposed to the existence of Israel, which include Hamas, Islamic Jihad, PLO, PA and other Arab Palestinian groups were to gain a foothold along the Green Line and hold the commanding ridge above Tel Aviv, as soon as their first rockets struck Tel Aviv there would be launched such an answer to that attack that when the day was done there would no longer be any talks about what borders the Arabs deserved as they would all be placed east of the Jordan River. The result of this peace, the world claims, is “only fair” as the Jews stole the Palestinian Land for their state. What nobody appears capable of remembering is that there was not before at any point in time any nations named Palestine. Palestine is a region like the plains of Africa or the forests of Europe or the steppes of Russia. None of those are nations, they are locations. There has never been an Arab or other State between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea since one thousand years before the start of the Gregorian calendar. That was the time of King David and King Solomon. Before them, there was King Saul and the age of the Prophets and all the ways back to Joshua which was the start of the Israelite State. No other nation has controlled this region as an independent state; it was always a part of a province or was the province of the Jews. The Arabs did not arrive until after 725 and left as soon as they could for Damascus. Should the opinion, not the facts, which give Israel all the rights to the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, as long as they permit the Arabs to have certain rights, which include the right to work, freedom of religion, to pursue an education, medical care, own land, own a business, and almost any other right given an Israeli with one notable exception, they are not entitled to political rights, then progress would be possible. This means they are limited to whatever political rights and powers that the Israeli government is willing to grant to them. This is why Gaza is now the nation of Hamastan. It is a terrorist state, but it has all the makings of a nation, a dysfunctional nation, but a nation just the same. The same is not true for the Arabs residing in Judea and Samaria. They have been granted semi-autonomy which permits limited self-rule. Where they have their own budget, their own areas assigned, their own representative legislature and leadership, they are still under the sovereignty of Israel, defended by the Israeli Defense Force (IDF), may not field an army, may be permitted police powers however limited as Israel should decide, do not have to serve in the IDF, can be restricted in movements outside their assigned areas, and may have other restrictions as required for the public peace and well-being. They are not permitted the normative rights of a state and should not be accepted in international settings unless permitted by Israel as their actual overriding governance. The desires of other nations are not legally binding upon Israel and the San Remo Conference and Treaty of Sèvres grant Israel, in conjunction with the White Papers, rule of the lands from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea unless Israel were to leave claim to any region such as Gaza. That is the reality and the picture below depicts an unfortunate reality.
