ERDOGAN – THE STUFFED SHIRT SUICIDE BOMBER RUNS WITH THE MOUTH

The mouth of the Middle East, no we are not speaking about the the Palestinian airhead Abu Mazen, but the diminutive Nazi wanna be, Erdogan. A suicidal maniac whose ancestors brought death and mayhem to 1,500,000 Armenians. Trying to lecture Netanyahu who spit right back in his face with aplomb. What possessed this wannabe to indulge in a belligerent diatribe against Israel?

Well apparently it was the sight of his buddies, the Hamas vigilantes, who stormed Israel’s border with Gaza. The final tally, 60 or so suicide bombers were put on a carpet ride as they zipped out into space for the opportunity to celebrate with the promised 53 virgins. Of course they will! Those Hamas dudes are pretty slick, using babies as human shields to protect their genitals is a tactic of ingenuity. It proves once again their girly girl personality is just that, no balls.

The provocation of the Iran supported and weaponized Hamas was Israel’s 70th anniversary party and the dedication of the United States embassy to Jerusalem. The cannabalistic nature of theseanimals” took hold as they stormed the border; met with thunder and lighting from the IDF without a Allahu Akbar prayer was evidence of their corrupted cerebellum. Because of the measly lives they built in the Mediterranean facing Gaza their future is bleak; this full affirmation of their ultimate goal of destroying Israel. Like Iran, they want to wipe it from the face of the earth. Only problem here is that they are the ones to be wiped.

Getting back to the problematic creature Erdogan, a twenty first century killer of Kurds, who is closer to being wiped from Nato, has problems of his own. There is a simmering under current to his autocratic rule. Don’t forget his animosity toward the Kurds, who will someday soon take it to him large. Additionally, the Christians of Turkey know how it is to live under the auspices of a runt. Turkey has blood on its hands going back a century. Never taking full blame for their Nazi like holocaust of the Armenian slaughter. Their arch enemy Israel is about to pass an Armenian resolution blaming Turkey for what everyone else knows. The Turks were cold blooded killers. And don’t forget the Ottomans, venomous perpetrators of murder for five centuries. It wasn’t till WWI that the world rid themselves of these saber carrying criminals. 

Netanyahu would have none of Erdogan’s lip. Erdogan is among Hamas’s biggest supporters and there is no doubt that he well understands terrorism and slaughter. I suggest that he not preach morality to us”  An online comment reads: 

Yair Netanyahu's Instagram post

Yair Netanyahu, son of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, posted a controversial image saying “Fuck Turkey” on his Instagram account on Wednesday. This follows a diplomatic row between Israel and Turkey which began Tuesday, when Ankara expelled Israel’s ambassador over the number of Palestinians killed during protests in the Gaza border on Monday.

 WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TOO? THAT IS THE QUESTION!

BOOT HIM OUT OF NATO NOW!

Turkish President called Israel a terrorist state on Tuesday, May 15, the day that the lira plunged to its lowest ever point against the dollar. The lira has lost 15 percent of its value in the past three months. its record plunge Tuesday was sparked by Erdogan’s vow to take greater control of his government’s monetary policy if he wins the July 24 election, a clear vote of no confidence by the financial markets.
Erdogan hoped to draw attention from the two-digit inflation rate at home by blasting Israel’s prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu,  accusing him of having “Palestinian blood on his hands” after 60 Palestinians died in Monday’s raging riots on the Gaza-Israeli border fence. This stratagem may work in the short term, but not for long. The lira will continue to slide, and the Turkish economy go to pot, for reasons that have nothing to do with Israel and the Palestinians. This is the direct result of the growing strength of the US economy, which has the opposite effect on Israel’s thriving economy.
Turkish-US relations have never been so bad. The only part of the Trump administration willing to maintain a modicum of cooperation with Ankara is the Pentagon. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis contends that this is essential in view of the US Air Force’s use of Turkish air bases for attacking the Islamic State in Syria in Iraq. But the common ground between Washington and Ankara is shrinking for four reasons, although both governments are anxious to gloss over this decline.

  1. Erdogan to this day accuses US intelligence of supporting the attempted military coup for his ouster in July 2016. He never tires of demanding US extradition of the Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen whom he holds responsible for orchestrating the coup from his American exile.
  2. The Turkish president has been cozying up to Russia’s Vladimir Putin and has become the first NATO member to purchase Russian weapons.
  3. The Turkish army invaded the northern Syrian province of Afrin to drive the Kurdish YPG militia, a staunch US ally, out of that part of Syria. For now, the Turkish troops are stuck there because their further advance is blocked by US and French forces.
  4. Erdogan has developed close ties with the ayatollahs in Tehran.

Therefore, Erdogan will not help himself politically or ease his economic and military woes by rudely insulting Israel; he will only exacerbate them.

NAKBA (CATASTROPHE) DAY AT THE GAZA BORDER

For the Palestinians it is an annual day of commemoration of the displacement that preceded and followed the Israeli Declaration of Independence in 1948. The day was inaugurated by Yasser Arafat in 1998. And they had their chance but didn’t take it and have paid for it over the intervening 70 years. Peace never until Israel is ‘wiped from the earth.’

(click)Suicidal maniacs stormed the Israeli border yesterday en-masse. There they met the IDF, the Israel Defense Force. Suffering a huge blow, these Pseudo Palestinians stated their case and what case is their case? Proving once again that they are the product of their own demise. News reported indicated 58 dead and thousands injured. Now that is a real catastrophe. Hamas sending babies to the front lines with $100 stipends; doing this for public relation purposes.

Of course we have the Jew hating Erdogan, the diminutive from Turkey. He is always there, mouthing like a frothing dog with rabies. One day, and that day will come soon, where he will be made to eat his words. And it can’t come soon enough.

ISRAEL TO VISIT IRAN NEXT -TEHRAN TO GO ON KOSHER DIET

Israel strikes ‘nearly all’ Iranian infrastructure in Syria after Iran rocket attack, minister says

Israel said it struck “nearly all” of the Iranian infrastructure sites in Syria on Thursday, in direct response to a barrage of Iranian rocket fire targeting Israeli military positions in the Golan Heights.

The Israel Defense Force (IDF) said it deployed fighter jets that struck every target on its list. The targets included military compounds, intelligence operations and munition warehouses, a statement read. The strikes were Israel’s largest air operation in years, the statement read.

 

For reasons only know to the Mullahs the likelihood of them going on a Kosher diet served by their enemies in Israel (the Jews) is all but certain. There will be no similarity to the  Trojan Horse of days yonder though, the Israeli tipped missiles will be buttressed with something more akin to a Chinese New Year celebration.

TIME TO RIGHT A WRONG

Back yonder the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to none other than President Obama, who by the way was an unknown quantity at that point in time, but for some reason which we all know, was the greatest sham of the century . To quote the committee, “has attached special importance to Obama’s vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.” Have you ever heard of a bunch of garbage? Obama condoned the development of nuclear weapons in North Korea. He gave Iran the key to nuclear development by the mullahs. His foreign policy decisions were the white flag ticket to the Russians, Turkey and Isis in Syria. Don’t forget the 400,000 killed in this conflict. Obama is responsible for this blood letting; there is more blood on his hands then the local butcher.

Soon we shall see the Iran agreement that Obama agreed to come full circle under President Trump. May 12 is the date to watch. Foreign policy expert, John Bolton now part of the Trump administration, is not fooled by words, but sees the action on the ground in Syria, Yemen, Iraq and Lebanon as the long arm of Islamic terrorist organization known as the Revolutionary Guards spreading their hegemony across the Levant. However, he hasn’t turned a blind eye to eventual encounter Israel will have with Iran. Seal of the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution.svg

For sure we know that past is prelude; Israel took out a partially built Iranian nuclear reactor in 1981 – the same holds true for a partially built nuclear reactor site in Syria -constructed by the North Koreans. Israel cannot afford to see the spread of nuclear weapons in the Middle East. Their defense establishment has the plans and operations ready at the get go to repeat the 1981 mission. This is not hyperbole, but it will be coming to a theater near you. Russia, will not sit idly by when the conflict goes full bore, we guarantee it. Along with the destruction of Iran’s nuclear capability, Syria will suffer a destruction of their military establishment too.

Mattis: Iran-Israel clash is close, but US military focus shifts out of Syria to Iraq

The dangers we face today are the result of Obama’s White Flag, he lived in a Utopian world made up of bad actors. The hoax here is that Obama was their point man. Obama, the man of peace as the Nobel Committee designated was not one at all, but a criminal perpetrator of war.

Do the right thing Nobel Committee, take back Obama’s Peace Prize and awarded it to President Trump.

COMING SOON TO A THEATER NEAR YOU – BOMBS AWAY

Trump did not pull any punches. (click)The button was pushed and the package delivered via airmail to Syria. Russia has vigorously objected to this act of “aggression.” But really what can they do? Their tough talk is only that; they will not find any advantage in raising the stakes in this conflict. Dead bodies don’t go over well in Mother Russia. As it is 200 Russians were killed in the last exchange. So when more bodies appear in the tarmac news spreads fast. Believe us when we say it, Putin loves blood, however mothers don’t.

Vlad the Animal Lover may be in for the cage fight of his life. Other Western nations including the United States have failed to stop autocratic dictators from exercising their power through force or the threat of force. Obama’s Red Line in Syria is now the focus of today’s conflict; a quagmire that can be the predecessor of WWIII. The taking of Crimea by Vlad is another example of Obama’s tough talk without the walk to back it up. Suddenly we find ourselves in a very precarious situation. But we must admit that presidents before Obama also caved in when it was time to point the gun at our adversaries. Now we are into a confrontation without the ability to hold back. A package must be delivered to these dictators.

Trump’s pick for secretary of state to tell senators years of soft policy toward Moscow ‘now over’

Mike Pompeo, whom President Trump chose for his next secretary of state, is expected to tell the Senate during his confirmation hearing Thursday that years of soft policy toward Russian aggression are “now over.”

According to his prepared remarks obtained Wednesday by Fox News from a senior Trump administration official, Pompeo will chastise Russia for acting “aggressively” and emphasize that the national security strategy of the Trump administration considers Russia “a danger to our country.”

THE OBAMA RED LINE, THEN PINK LINE, THEN WHITE FLAG

 President Obama never walked the talk and this week it ended with more civilians being gassed by the “Animal Assad”.  

(click)Russia blames Israel for deadly airstrike on Assad base after alleged chemical attack. The United States denied that they bombed Assad’s airbase killing ten Iranians, but no doubt they gave the Israelis permission for the hit. 

Remembering back to the day when Obama received a Nobel Peace Prize baffles us, probably the bulk of free thinking initiated Americans too.

The 2009 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to United States President Barack Obama for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples”. The Norwegian Nobel Committee announced the award on October 9, 2009, citing Obama’s promotion of nuclear nonproliferation and a “new climate” in international relations fostered by Obama, especially in reaching out to the Muslim world.

The Nobel Committee’s decision drew mixed reactions from US commentators and editorial writers across the political spectrum, as well as from the rest of the world.

Obama accepted the prize in Oslo on December 10, 2009. In a 36-minute speech, he discussed the tensions between war and peace and the idea of a “just war” saying, “perhaps the most profound issue surrounding my receipt of this prize is the fact that I am the Commander-in-Chief of the military of a nation in the midst of two wars.

Baffled may not be the word to describe this prize, a more intense definition is needed, say confused, delirious, maybe we were disoriented. Maybe these are the words to describe the Nobel committee. Because it seems to us that they were disoriented, delirious and confused. Well how did it work out for the man of PEACE?

Not too well; 400,000 Syrians dead whose kin can thank Obama’s Red line. Iran waging havoc throughout the Middle East and on the verge of a nuclear capability, signed on by Obama and Kerry. Hezbollah backing up Assad in Syria and running roughshod in Lebanon. The aftermath of Obama’s peace overtures have not turned out as expected. The exclamation point here is last weeks message sent via airmail to Syria. Russia has got the message too, but all is not said and done. We sincerely hope the Nobel committee recognizes their mistake and claws back Obama’s prize and then hands it over to Donald Trump. 

Susan Rice, you remember her, a liar of first rate. It was she who fell hook line and sinker for Russia’s money back guarantee that no chemical weapons remain in Syria; was she smoking some of Obama’s  stash during her time at the U.N? But we will get to the bottom of it one way or another. Obama’s peace overtures to dictators will stand out as a ruthless ticket for them to go on killing with abandon.

 “To be prepared for War is one of the most effectual means of preserving peace.” -George Washington, 1st address to Congress – 1790

MUSHROOM CLOUDS ON THE HORIZON

We all know what Obama, the Jew hating Muslim Brotherhood aficionado, did everything in his power to give the Mullahs in Iran a nuclear bomb. It is clear as a day in the Iranian desert. Obama did his job well. However, the new administration did not take kindly to the deal. And so it is that the Iranians have been testing our resolve. But this is not the only thing they have been testing, for instance their intrusion into Syria is testing Israel’s resolve too.

Yesterday, Iranian provocation resulted in one of their drones downed by an Israeli helicopter. This was not an ordinary drone, but one with stealth capabilities including transitional operations most likely including surveying Israeli territory. However, Israel was not fooled by the Iranian drone which was blasted out of the sky.

This incident was the start of what could be a major confrontation in terms of destruction. Iran may talk big, but currently don’t have the muscle to back it up. According to think tanks, Israel is in possession of numerous weapons, some of them nuclear, that are ready for the time when needed to address a threat. That time is coming closer by the second. Don’t count out the Israel air force, who by the way is second to none, that possesses technology only scene in video games. They are itching to show off their prowl. In yesterday’s confrontation one of their F-16 was hit with the pilot and gunner parachuting to safety; the jet landing in Israeli territory. Israel is not going to let this encounter go without punitive action.

The infiltrator drone was discovered to have been part of a whole fleet of advanced armed Saegheh UAVs housed at the T-4 base. The second wave of Israeli air strikes against 12 Syrian and Iranian targets decimated this fleet. Most importantly, the drone intrusion and its sequel exposed the incident to have been no one-off,  but part of a calculated Iranian plot against Israel at the highest level, that was coordinated in advance with the Russian air force, which shares the use of T-4, and the Syrian air defense systems, which operate under Russian command. It is equally important to note that Iran brought its Saegheh UAV’s to Syria with Moscow’s consent.

The current theater is Syria which is the focus of Israel, but that may change because of the brazen act by Iran of flying a drone over Israel territory. Israel is licking their chops at a chance to destroy Iran’s ballistic missile program and their heavy water research labs that Iran believes are bomb proof. Bunker buster bombs have  been used before by the United States. Don’t put it past the United States to pass one on to Israel for use in Iran. When one of these drops it sends a message loud and clear.

If that doesn’t get the mullahs attention for sure a fissionable heater will. These types of armaments take no prisoners. And if one of these sees action it will set in motion a far greater conflict. Iran can’t afford to be the testing ground until they perfect their Big Boy in seven more years. However, we believe their means of transportation will be targeted by Israel a lot sooner.

 

 

QUESTION

Vice President Pence speech to the Knesset yesterday in the capital of Israel, Jerusalem

Thank you Vice President Pence.

 

History of the 1948 war between Israel and the surrounding Arab states provides an answer to today’s conflict.  Transjordan, under the Hashemite ruler Abdullah I, gained independence from Britain in 1946 and was called Jordan in 1949. On the eve of May 14, the Arabs launched an air attack on Tel Aviv, which the Israelisresisted. This action was followed by the invasion of the former Palestinian mandate by Arab armies from Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Egypt. Saudi Arabia sent a formation that fought under the Egyptian command.

There had been tension and conflict between the Arabs and the Jews, and between each of them and the British forces, ever since the 1917 Balfour Declaration and the 1920 creation of the British Mandate of Palestine. British policies dissatisfied both Arabs and Jews. The Arabs’ opposition developed into the 1936–1939 Arab revolt in Palestine, while the Jewish resistance developed into the Jewish insurgency in Palestine (1944–1947). In 1947 these ongoing tensions erupted into civil war, following the 29 November 1947 adoption of the United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine, which planned to divide Palestine into three areas: an Arab state, a Jewish state and the Special International Regime for the cities of Jerusalem and Bethlehem.

As a result of the war, the State of Israel controlled both the area that the UN General Assembly Resolution 181 had recommended for the proposed Jewish state as well as almost 60% of the area of Arab state proposed by the 1948 Partition Plan,[18] including the JaffaLydda and Ramle area, Galilee, some parts of the Negev, a wide strip along the Tel-AvivJerusalem road, West Jerusalem and some territories in the West Bank. Transjordan took control of the remainder of the former British mandate, which it annexed, and the Egyptian military took control of the Gaza Strip. At the Jericho Conference on 1 December 1948, 2,000 Palestinian delegates called for unification of Palestine and Transjordan as a step toward full Arab unity. No state was created for the Palestinian Arabs.

The Jordanian annexation of the West Bank was the occupation and consequent annexation of the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) by Jordan(formerly Transjordan) in the aftermath of the 1948 Arab–Israeli War.During the war, Jordan’s Arab Legion conquered the Old City of Jerusalem and took control of territory on the western side of the Jordan River, including the cities of JerichoBethlehemHebron and Nablus. At the end of hostilities, Jordan was in complete control of the West Bank.

The conflict triggered significant demographic change throughout the Middle East. Around 700,000 Palestinian Arabs fled or were expelled from their homes in the area that became Israel, and they became Palestinian refugees in what they refer to as Al-Nakba (“the catastrophe”). In the three years following the war, about 700,000 Jews immigrated to Israel with many of them having been expelled from their previous countries of residence in the Middle East.

Following the December 1948 Jericho Conference, and the 1949 renaming of the country from Transjordan to Jordan, the West Bank was formally annexed on 24 April 1950.

The annexation was widely considered as illegal and void by the international community. A month afterwards, the Arab League declared that they viewed the area “annexed by Jordan as a trust in its hands until the Palestine case is fully solved in the interests of its inhabitants.”Recognition of Jordan’s declaration of annexation was only granted by the United KingdomIraq and Pakistan.

Jordan transferred its full citizenship rights to the residents of the West Bank, the annexation more than doubled the population of Jordan.The naturalized Palestinians enjoyed equal opportunities in all sectors of the state without discrimination, and they were given half of the seats of the Jordanian Parliament.

After Jordan lost the West Bank to Israel in the 1967 Six Day War, the Palestinians there remained Jordanian citizens until Jordan decided to renounce claims and sever administrative ties with the territory in 1989.

ANSWER: DURING THE INTERVENING YEARS FROM 1948 TO 1967  THERE  WAS NO DEMAND BY THE PSEUDO PALESTINIANS FOR THE CREATION OF THEIR OWN STATE. ONLY AFTER DEFEATING JORDAN IN 1967 BY ISRAEL THE DEMANDS BEGAN.  NUMEROUS OPPORTUNITIES WERE DISMISSED BY THE PSEUDO PALESTINIANS SINCE THEN MAKING A MOCKERY OF THEIR DESIRE TO LIVE IN PEACE.

 

•  that the Arabs of Palestine have no language, religion or general culture that distinguishes them significantly from the Arabs of Jordan, Syria (where some factions still claim Palestine as part of “Greater Syria”) or other neighboring Arab states;

•  that especially before the 20th century, traditional Palestinian society was semi‑feudal in its structure and organized around loyalties to locality and tribe, not nation;

•  that the Arabs of Palestine never exercised national sovereignty in the country in which they lived;

•  that a pattern of Arab emigration from Palestine, a land often described by Western travelers in the 18th and 19th centuries as “desolate” and “empty,” was reversed, especially after World War I, not by nationalist feeling but by the employment opportunities and improved quality of life that accompanied Zionist immigration and land development;

•  that the word Filastin, as the country is called in Arabic, is not Palestinian‑Arab in origin (the Arabs of the region rarely used it before 1948) but refers to the biblical “Philistines,” whose name the ancient Romans gave to the country in an attempt to obliterate the Jews’ connection to it;

•  that even UN Security Council Resolution 242, which in 1967 called upon Israel to return “territories” it had conquered in the Six‑Day War, referred only to “refugees” without mentioning the Palestinians as a separate national entity.

In other words, it can be argued that “Palestinian” identity is a shallow political veneer that developed in response to Zionism, that it serves today as a hostile tool kept sharpened for use against Israel, and that Palestinian Arab culture is, at most, a “dialect” of a larger Arab culture.

Even fervent Palestinian nationalists might not deny many of the items on the above list. But they would argue that the absence of a totally unique identity does not disqualify Palestinians from claiming national independence, any more than the lack of a separate language, culture and religion disqualifies Guatemala, Canada or Tunisia.

Though Palestinian society still remains partly focused on clan and tribe today, it is also evident that the Arabs of Palestine have in recent generations moved largely toward understanding themselves as a separate nation within the Arab world.

The earliest imaginings of a separate Palestinian national identity are traceable to the mid-19th century, perhaps partly in response to renewed Western interest in the “Holy Land.” As early as 1919, the first “Arab Palestinian Congress” called for Palestinian unity and independence, albeit still understanding Palestine as part of “Greater Syria.”

But it is the year 1948 — the time of naqba, or catastrophe, as Palestinian Arabs commonly call it– that marks the crucial watershed in the process of Palestinian nation-building. During Israel’s War of Independence against invading Arab armies, some 600,000 Arabs were dispossessed from their homes and became refugees. Not only individuals but embedded social patterns and relationships were uprooted, causing traumatic societal and cultural discontinuities. A society that had been centered on family, locality and traditional social patterns felt itself shattered.

Worse, the same predicament befell it again less than 20 years later in the aftermath of the Six‑Day War, which created many new refugees and saw the West Bank and Gaza Strip transferred from culturally cognate Jordanian‑Arab control to unfamiliar Israeli‑Jewish rule.

Throughout the Palestinian world, and especially in the refugee camps of Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Gaza and the West Bank, as the established social classes and patterns were unexpectedly shaken up together, a new social essence began to ferment, with the old local and communal affiliations becoming transmuted into a national one by a sense of shared history, suffering and hope.

Since 1967, the Arabs of Palestine have increasingly insisted on a separate identity for themselves.  Even many Israeli Arabs, torn by ethnic loyalties and perhaps radicalized by decades of ethnic conflict, now routinely refer to themselves as “Palestinians with Israeli citizenship.”

The Palestinians have also had “peoplehood” conferred on them by prevailing international usage, including 30 years of UN resolutions identifying them as a people and recognizing them (despite strong American and Israeli objections) as having “inalienable rights” to sovereign independence.  “Palestine” now exists as a partial political entity with its own passports, postage stamps, international calling code and internet domain name.

As the Palestinians move toward defining their identity as a nation, what is still unclear (and under debate) is exactly where that nation’s homeland is–whether in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, perhaps confederated with Jordan or Israel; or in Jordan itself, of which two‑thirds of its population is ethnically identical to the Arab population west of the Jordan River. Finally, many Palestinian militants still argue that Israel itself is a suitable future homeland.

JERUSALEM, ISRAEL

From a letter to the Editor of the Wall Street Journal published December 30, 2017.

“If I forget you, O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill. May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth if I do not remember you, if I do not consider Jerusalem my highest joy.” These words in Psalm 137: 5-6 written long before the birth of Muhammad, attest to the reality that Jerusalem has been Israel’s capital for millennia. I did not vote for President Trump, but I applauded his willingness to put his money where past presidents have only put their mouths in relations to Jerusalem.

Signed, Linda K. Gragg

Kennewick, Washington

Below is an article from Mitchell Bard, written many years ago when Arafat and Sharon were still living.

Today, the Palestinians could be enjoying their 54th year of independence, or their 52nd, or their 19th, or their 3rd or the eve of their 2nd. That’s right, by my count they have had at least five opportunities to have a state beside Israel if that was their real objective, but they have chosen to hold out for a Palestinian state instead of Israel. Even today, under that “hardline, right-wing” Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, the opportunity for emancipation exists, but the Palestinians stubbornly cling to their dreams of a Palestinians state replacing Israel rather than accepting the offer to establish a state beside Israel.

The first chance for statehood was in 1947 when the UN actually created an Arab state in Palestine. It was not perfect, it was not what they wanted, but it was a state. The Zionists accepted partition even though it was a truly rotten deal for them too. Think about it. Like the Arabs, the Jews believed they were entitled to all of Palestine, and not just what was then called Palestine, but the 80% of what had been Palestine that the British lopped off and turned into Transjordan. True, the UN gave the Jews more land, but most of it was the Negev desert. The borders were indefensible, and Jerusalem was not only excluded from the Jewish state, it was to be internationalized and surrounded by the Arab state.

So why did the Jews accept such a lousy deal?

David Ben-Gurion and the other Zionist leaders recognized it was the best deal they would get. They also understood that the international community was offering legal recognition for the establishment of a Jewish state. And most important, they would now have an independent state that could be a haven to Jews from around the world, and they could build it into something greater.

Most Palestinian Arabs, on the other hand, believed Palestine really was just southern Syria. They were convinced by their Arab brethren that they had no need to compromise because the Jews would be driven into the sea and they would have the entire country. The whole refugee issue is proof that most Palestinian Arabs were not even prepared to fight for their independence; they chose to flee instead. And so their chance for statehood was squandered.

The Palestinians actually had 19 years to demand statehood during the Jordanian occupation from 1948-1967. Jordan annexed the West Bank in 1950 rather than grant the Palestinians independence. What is remarkable is that there were no Hanan Ashrawis demanding the end to Jordanian occupation and the creation of a Palestinian state for all those years. Ask a Palestinian today about that and you’ll hear a lot of hemming and hawing. They only discovered a passion for independence after Israel captured the territories in 1967.

The third opportunity for statehood was presented by yet another “fanatical, right-wing” Prime Minister, Menachem Begin. In fact, when the Palestinian state comes into being, as it inevitably will some day, Begin should be regarded as its true founder. Begin was the first one to offer the Palestinians control over their own affairs. Yes, the autonomy plan that came out of the Israeli-Egyptian peace negotiations was limited, and did not offer immediate statehood, but there is no question that once the Palestinians began to control their own affairs, it would be impossible for Israel to stop them from ultimately becoming totally free of Israeli control. From about 1983 on, it was no longer a question of if there would be a Palestinian state, but when. Had the Palestinians accepted Begin’s offer, however, they would have had their state long ago.

The Oslo agreements were specifically geared toward an Israeli withdrawal from the territories and the creation of a Palestinian state. According to the timetable, the last remaining issues should have been resolved by 1999, but the Palestinians never lived up to the commitments they made, starting with the recognition of Israel and renouncement of terrorism that Arafat declared in September 1993 that was the basis for the entire Oslo process. Had Arafat ended the violence and complied with his treaty commitments, the Palestinians would be completely under Arafat’s control today (as it is 98% of the Palestinian people are under his autocratic control).

Finally, the Palestinians were offered a state by Ehud Barak in the negotiations at Camp David and the White House in 2000. Today, they could be living in a Palestine comprised of 95% of the West Bank, 100% of the Gaza Strip, and most of Arab east Jerusalem. They would have greater control of the Temple Mount and an unimpeded highway between Gaza and the West Bank. Instead, most of their cities are under curfew and surrounded by Israeli forces because Arafat rejected Barak’s offer and waged a war of terror in hopes of achieving his dream of liberating all of “Palestine.”

The best chance for the Palestinians to achieve statehood in the short-run would be to tell Ariel Sharon they are now prepared to end the violence, replace Arafat, and negotiate. They should offer to accept whatever deal Sharon offers even if it means a Palestinian state the size of a postage stamp. Why? For the same reason the Zionists accepted a state that was little more than a postage stamp.

Think about it. After agreeing to make peace with Israel, within a nanosecond of declaring statehood, the United States will recognize the new state. The rest of the world will follow suit. Within a few minutes, the Americans and Europeans will begin throwing so many dollar bills at the Palestinians that they’ll think that it’s a plague of locusts. If the Palestinians truly wish to live in peace, they can spend the next 50 years building their state, developing an economy, infrastructure, governmental institutions, and all the rest, and the world will cheer and do everything to help them. Israel will be first in line with assistance.

The great thing from the Palestinian perspective is that they don’t even have to give up their goal of destroying Israel. They just need to exercise some patience. As soon as they’re independent, they can have Karine-A’s docking nonstop at Gaza port bringing in tons of weapons. In 50 years, then, they may be strong enough to drive the Jews into the sea.

But Israel won’t allow this, you say. Even the far left in Israel has only been willing to allow the Palestinians a demilitarized state. This shows how naive they truly are. Once Palestine is independent, Israel cannot enforce this. Sure, Israel will do everything possible to prevent the large scale importation of weapons, and will interdict shipments of arms, and maybe have to conduct an Osirak type raid if necessary, but there will be a limit to what Israel can do. I still believe Israel can defend itself, because it will do whatever is necessary to insure its security, as will the Jordanians, by the way, who have just as much incentive as Israel to insure the Palestinian state is as small and weak as possible to insure the Palestinians don’t repeat their 1970 effort to take over their country.

President Bush has now offered the Palestinians a sixth opportunity for statehood. Will they finally abandon their dreams of liberating all of Palestine and choose the path of compromise rather than extremism? Will they devote their energy to building a state of their own rather than try to destroy the state of the Jews?

What do you think?

FROM TIP:Posted by Tip Staff – December 28, 2016

In a speech at the State Department on Wednesday, Secretary of State John Kerry cast the majority of the blame on the lack of Israeli-Palestinian peace on the Israelis, ignoring Israel’s history of repeatedly making risky overtures for peace with the Palestinians, only to receive terrorism in response.
Israelis voted in Labor’s Ehud Barak to the premiership in 1999 specifically because he promised to make peace with the Palestinians; in 2000, he met with then-PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat at Camp David and offered the Palestinians 92% of the West Bank, all of the Gaza Strip, and eastern Jerusalem as its capital. Israel even proposed that a maximum of 100,000 refugees would be allowed to return to Israel on the basis of humanitarian considerations or family reunification, and an international fund would be created to compensate the Palestinians. Arafat rejected the offer. Sweetening the deal, the Clinton administration suggested that the Palestinians control 97% of the West Bank and the entirety of the Gaza Strip, with a land-link between the two, as well as a capital in East Jerusalem. Barak endorsed the Clinton Parameters; again, Arafat rejected them. After having rejected Israeli peace offers at Camp David with no counter-offers of his own, Arafat chose to launch the murderous Second Intifada, killing more than 1,500 Israelis between 2000 and 2005.
In 2005, Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip, only for that territory to be taken over by Hamas in a Palestinian civil war in 2007. Ever since, Hamas has used the Strip as a base from which to launch attacks on Israelis, using rockets and underground tunnels, and Gazans live under the grip of Hamas’ authoritarian rule.
In 2008, then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert offered Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas 93.7% of the West Bank; the remaining 6.3% would be made up with land swaps. He also offered to take in 5,000 refugees over five years; an international committee to oversee Jerusalem’s holy sites; and an international fund consisting of billions of dollars, administered by Norwegians, to compensate Palestinian refugees. In a May 2009 interview with The Washington Post, Abbas admitted that he had turned down the offer and said, “The gaps were wide.”
The government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu agreed to an unprecedented 10-month freeze in settlement construction in November 2009 only for the Palestinians to say it was insufficient and then call for an extension when it expired. Netanyahu said he would do so if the Palestinian Authority recognized Israel as the Jewish state; the PA refused.
When the Obama administration proposed a framework for a peace agreement in 2013, the Netanyahu government accepted it, while the Palestinians turned it down. Even still, Israel was willing to talk with the Palestinian Authority, until Fatah and Hamas announced a unity government in April 2014. Hamas refuses to reject violence and terror against Israel and Israel refuses to negotiate with it. The Palestinians adopted a policy of trying to skirt direct negotiations and internationalizing the conflict via the United Nations and other international fora.

DEATH WISH

The mullahs of Iran have made a New Year’s resolution – in 2018 they will meet Allah. Their wish is about to become reality; the mother of all carpet rides await the turban heads. In the not too distant future these war mongers will get more than they bargained for. Sometimes your wish backfires.

Who would of thought that a Black Swan would appear on Iran’s scene. A mirage no, but what we see from a distance is a very disgruntled public. For they have had their voices stifled and their lives chained by a bunch of old men wearing bathrobes. The revolution that was crushed by Obama has now reared its ugly head. This does not sit well with the mullahs.

According to them the western social media is to blame by provoking the protesters, who by the way are sick and tired of life under autocrats. Demonstrations are spreading quicker than the California infernos. Calls for Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and President Haassan Rouhani’s head are ubiquitous. “Death to Dictators” are shouts from the crowd. The public is sick and tired of the adventurism of the Red Guards. This is only the beginning, once critical mass develops the mullahs will have no choice but to bring out the weapons of mass destruction. Will we see the mother of all revolutions? Time will tell.

A short distance away in Israel, multiple challenges on many fronts from the belligerent nation have been repelled. Syrian arms depots in the hands of Red Guards have been obliterated. However, the most crucial activity is occurring in close proximity to Syria’s border with Israel – that of the Golan Heights. Israel’s RED LINE is not something your want to cross; for they are prepared to counter all comers with weapons that have not yet been developed.

How about a star wars laser weapon that will turn into glass Iran’s nuclear weapons program? And if that won’t impress you, perhaps an army of dragonbots able to penetrate the deepest parts of Iran’s military complex. And Stuxnet, the insidious program that delayed Iran’s development of centrifuges in their cavernous laboratory will be back not to the future, but to the future.  This time it will turn the mullahs on to themselves. Think of silent killers penetrating and at the same time ripping your body into shreds. Think of mass destruction on scale so large it will make the taking out of Egypt’s air force in the 1967 war like child’s play.

Can’t wait for theatrics to play out!
