How old were you on September 11, 2001? Were or are you old enough to remember what happened that Tuesday morning? I was 44.

 

I was off work that morning and was sleeping while most of New York City was going full bore with their work day. My wife and I were enjoying the cuddling of blissful sleep.

 

THEN

 

I got a phone call from a friend of mine. He told me to turn on my TV to any channel. I was shocked to hear a passenger airline had crashed into one of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center (WTC).

 

I can’t recall how long I was watching the television report and with the cameras on the smoking building – BOOM! Another passenger airliner crashed into Twin Tower.

 

TV reports began to filter in. This was no tragic accident. Passenger jets had been hijacked and deliberately flown into the WTC. Two other passenger jets were hijacked. One flew into the Pentagon and the other crashed in a field near Shanksville, PA.

 

Nearly 3,000 Americans died rapidly on 911 at the WTC, the Pentagon and Shanksville, PA. You can add to those deaths the thousands who died due to the effects of rescues and New Yorkers returning to affected area when the EPA or CDC should have warned of health hazards that brought on tragic illnesses:

 

The WTCHP has certified 37,000 people as suffering from serious respiratory or digestive illnesses, cancer, or a combination.

 

 

The Manhattan borough president, Gale Brewer, told the Guardian she had “heard very high numbers” of people were at risk of dying from exposure to World Trade Center-related toxins.

 

“Many more than 3,000 or 4,000,” she said. “It’s very sad. I believe it will eclipse the number who died on 9/11 itself, because so many people were on the pile, or came to help, and so many people worked in the area. We are going to be dealing with this for years and years.” (Bold Text by Blog Editor9/11 health crisis: death toll from illness nears number killed on day of attacks; By Joanna Walters; The Guardian; 9/11/16 06.00 EDT)

 

911 is the day Quranic, Hadith and Sira based Islamic ideology were honored by Muslim followers.

The Lessons of September 11th

 

By Justin O. Smith

It has been seventeen years, since Islamic terrorists used jet airliners as guided missiles to bring down the World Trade Center Towers and six years since Islamic terrorists overran the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya and murdered four fine Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Most of us remember these days clear as a bell ringing out in the dead of night, and we swore that we would never forget what transpired on these days. We swore we would make certain it could never happen again.

 

And yet, through a multitude of continued Islamic inspired terror attacks, from those days to the present, America does not stand united in this war between civilizations or stand shoulder to shoulder in the war against Islamic terrorism and the evil ideology inherent to its core doctrines. Try reporting on the five Muslims in New Mexico, who were recently caught abusing and training children to become Islamic jihadi terrorists or the 35 similar and verifiable Islamic jihadi terrorist camps, along with a possible 200 more such camps, scattered across America, and just watch how fast the slurs of “racist” and “bigot” are thrown at any reporter’s good name.

 

America said, “We will never forget”, but from the manner in which we approach Islam and our Muslim population, it seems that many, especially the Democrats, have already forgotten, so anxious are they to appease Muslims and Islam in general and be seen as “enlightened and loving” and willing to “coexist”. They do not understand that “coexist” is simply a synonym for “surrender”.

 

Each time there is a new terror attack carried out on our homeland or a terror threat is neutralized and another Muslim terrorist is taken down by Homeland Security, or some other U.S. agency, the media goes into action, and it is ludicrous to watch. We stand united, we are not cowed, the terrorists will never win are repeated over and over by Congressmen, police chiefs, mayors and former U.S. presidents such as Obama, Carter, Clinton and Bush — the mantra of multicultural acceptance and tolerance, the same script, time and time again.

 

The truth is that life has not proceeded as normal, since American Airlines Flight 11 slammed into the side of the north tower of the World Trade Center at 8:46 a.m.. Our sons and daughters were obliterated, burned alive and left crumpled in pieces inside the collapsed rubble of the Twin Towers, and the terror attacks have continued, largely unabated, from Boston to Chattanooga to San Bernardino.

 

Let’s not forget, as recent as December 11, 2017 an Islamic terrorist from Bangladesh attempted to murder Americans with a homemade pipe bomb in New York’s Port Authority Bus Terminal. Akayed Ullah was a Muslim who pledged his loyalty to the Islamic State. And then there’s U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Ikaika Kang, who just plead guilty in August to providing the Islamic State with military information and equipment, a drone, and training.

 

America must never forget September 11th and its lessons, so long as American mothers and fathers are still burying their sons and daughters, due to Islamic terrorism on our own soil. If September 11, 2001 was anything, it should have been a wake-up call and an in-your-face moment of realization that despite all the multiculturalist, socialist and communist Democrat and RINO assurances that Islam is “a religion of peace”, it is, in fact, and evil ideology that hates all others to the point of not resting, until all outside of Islam either submit and enter its sphere or die fighting, or until Islam itself is no more. Islam hates the “other”, the Christians and Jews, the Europeans and Americans. If anything, America should never forget September 11th and Benghazi, when Ambassador Chris Stevens’ body was dragged through the streets, by a crowd of howling, screaming Muslims, and just how deep Islamic hatred goes for all outside Dar al- Islam, the House of Islam. Whether in America, Europe or the streets of Cairo or Benghazi, wherever “peace missions” are pursued, Americans can never “coexist” with Islam and they should not even try.

 

I am constantly attacked by the Left, for failing in the commandment “forgive your brother as you forgive yourself”. Muslims are not my “brother” in any Christian sense of the word, because they themselves reject such a brotherhood based in love,  and they are not seeking forgiveness, as their repeated attacks on the West clearly demonstrate; but rather they embrace a supremacist ideology based in hate and founded on conquest and subjugation. God might forgive evil deeds, but even Satan was still condemned to a lake of fire. I can forgive honest mistakes and deeds done in the heat of passion, by normally good people, but as far as evil perpetrated with clear purpose and a longtime strategy aimed at ending my people’s way of life and eradicating Judeo-Christian principles, I will never forgive such evil.

 

Is American life carrying on as normal, when now we see Christians attacked in Muslim “no go zones” like Dearborn, Michigan, for the “crime” of proselytizing near an Islamic festival?

 

How normal has life been for young Americans, such as Wyatt and Lucy Paterson, twins, who lost their dad in the Twin Towers, at the age of four? What about the survivors from the families of the other 2996 Americans murdered on that day? What about Genelle Guzman, the last survivor pulled from the rubble of the Twin Towers, who spent six weeks in the hospital undergoing surgeries on her crushed legs?

 

How normal has life been for Dorothy Woods, widow of Tyrone Woods killed in Benghazi, or Kate Quigley, whose brother Glen Doherty died fighting alongside Woods?

 

Life in America will never return to normal, as long as we fail to learn the lessons of 9/11 and keep buying the Leftists’ assertion that Islam is “a religion of peace” and the fool’s errand of “coexistence” with Islam, allowing Islam and the Muslim population to grow in America. Each time we remember the events surrounding 9/11/2001 and 2012 and all the Islamic terror and chaos that has followed, all Americans, who love America, must not only reject Islam’s status as a “religion”, but we must vow and work to eradicate Islam from America, by enforcing section 212 (f) of the 1952 McCarran Act, which focuses on any group like communists whose presence proves detrimental to the United States; and, we must halt all mosque construction and all Muslim immigration, since Islam is an evil and violent ideology focused on either America’s subjugation under Sharia Law or her ultimate destruction.

 

I will never forget 9/11, and neither should you.

Upcoming Civil War in America – Predicted by…


Adina Kutnicki must have been trying to refresh her memory about how the past affects the future. Kutnicki shares a Dave Gaubatz prediction from 2013 of a future American Civil War. This is 2018 and Kutnicki senses current events are mirroring Gaubatz’s 2013 predictions.

Upcoming Civil War in America – Predicted by Counterterror/Counterintelligence Operative in 2013, in 5 Years Time

Readers (and others) who are familiar with my work understand that I am very protective of my sources, be they investigative journalists or counterterrorism/ counterintelligence agents. For very good reason. But when one has, essentially, taken themselves “out of the shadows” and even given permission – on occasion – to reveal this and that, well….

 

Now, it is also the case that the aforementioned source is (more than) mentioned – “Acknowledged” alike – within BANNED: How Facebook Enables Militant Islamic Jihad. It is not for nothing. In fact, a partial airing bears repeating, that is, before the upcoming second civil war is dutifully explored via his on-target and predictive analysis.

 

“To Dave Gaubatz, how can I adequately describe your heroism and service to America’s security, other than to say: I am in awe! You embody the true character traits of a patriot. I am humbled to be considered a confidante. You emerged “from the shadows” through your investigative book, Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring To Islamize America. Americans, westerners alike, owe you a profound debt.”

 

That setting the record straight, pay strict heed to Dave’s warnings – for he is second to none, when it comes to hands-on, heavy-lifting in the patriotic arena. Incontestably, he is a premiere counterterrorism/ counterintelligence operative. In 2013, he predicted that the onset of what can only be considered America’s second civil war would be apparent in five years, in 2018. Hmm.

 

Rest assured, his professional assessment, its underlying basis, includes a deep evidentiary trail – which leads straight back to the leadership of the reds and greens via their foot soldiers! Keep in mind, as per this 2013 analysis, officially, Obama left the stage, but only to “lead his troops from behind” ala a shadow presidency.

 

Without further ado…..

 

December 30, 2013/in Featured, News /by Dave Gaubatz

 

When I was in Iraq (2003) I was asked by our government to conduct an assessment of the ground situation in Iraq, and what is the likelihood of a civil war developing between the Sunni and Shiite people of Iraq.

 

I spent six plus months conducting an analysis of the situation. The assessment consisted of talking with hundreds of Iraqis, both Sunni and Shiite. This included military, former military, Iraqi police, and Iraqi government personnel.

 

My conclusion was that a civil war would occur once our military left the area. It happened. Hundreds of thousands of Sunni and Shiite have been killed during their civil war.

 

In America I have conducted the same type of assessment. I have talked with hundreds of Americans from all walks of life. My conclusion is there will be a civil war within the next five years in America.

 

The war will be between liberals and conservatives. There have been some people who say I desire a civil war. I do not want any type of war. The victims in every war are the children…..one need only look at how Obama has already made a joke of our U.S. Constitution.

 

Within 5 years martial law will be declared and it is possible this may happen in 2016 when Obama makes up his own rules and laws and attempts to remain President. Patriotic Americans will shout ‘we are no longer going to allow our country to be taken over by liberals, communists, Islamic leaders and their supporters’……

 

There will be chaos in the streets of America. Conservatives will not allow their First and Second Amendment rights be taken from them.

 

There will be a shortage of food, water, housing, and medical care. FEMA will begin arresting tens of thousands of conservatives and place them into concentration-like (reeducation) camps.

 

Islamic leaders will have their Jihadi trained terrorists to begin making life ‘hell’ in America. One will not know the difference between Afghanistan and our beautiful country. We will see hundreds of suicide attacks by Muslims.

 

The conservative movement will suffer tremendously in the beginning of a war, but will bounce back and take our country back from ruins.

 

In actuality there will be no winners. Our country will be devastated and it will take decades to recover.

 

Readers should not shake their heads and say this can’t happen in America. We should all pray this never happens, but great societies have been falling for centuries. America will be no different than Rome or England.

 

What can we do? We must now demand our Constitution be the law of the land, and not taken over by a Dictator regime. We must educate our families, neighbors, friends, and co-workers to the realities our country is facing. Do not be afraid to speak the truth about Christianity and Judaism. We need these values in our lives more than ever.

 

America has a long and hard road ahead, but we can be one of the great empires that does not collapse if we take our country back now. In the 2014 elections we must put people into power who do not sugarcoat the truth simply to appease liberals and communists.

Clear as a bell. Chilling.

 

Inexorably, there is a very popular saying in Israel….sach ha’kol….סך הכל….which translates into “at the end of it all”, and it keeps springing to mind. It is a more than apt descriptor, relative to what patriots must prepare for.

 

In other words, there is no longer any doubt: the “opening shots” of a second civil war are taking place in America, at least, for men (and women) with eyes and ears and a modicum of learning. How so? It is they who will be able to discern what’s what from American history in particular and world history in general.

 

Even if not coined as much by the leftist captured media (and actual bodies have yet to litter the streets), the fact remains that this moment in time will be documented as the tipping point to America’s second civil war; just as in 1861-1865, the first time around.

 

And if history is to be the reader’s guide, the takeaway lesson is this: once freedom is lost, guaranteed, it will take many decades to regain, if ever. Not only that, inestimably, the losses will be incalculable if not thwarted, sooner than later.

 

Tellingly, unlike yesteryear’s first civil war, this go-around will mirror a Weathermen-style bringing down of America – on steroids!

 

Most significantly, and historically speaking too, as per Socrates’: “an unexamined life is not worth living.” The point being, by extrapolation, patriots – numbering in the many millions in America – are facing a crossroads, a fork in the road. Urgently, they must ask themselves through self-examination: what are they willing to sacrifice to protect America, not only as their national home, but as the last bulwark and safeguard to western freedom(s)??

 

Some parting food for thought: if any clarion call is needed, think Semper Fidelis, always faithful – not in relation to any loyalty owed to America’s (mostly treacherous) leaders, but to the nation’s foundational roots. Indeed, it is the Constitution and supportive Judeo-Christian values which are the underpinnings of America’s greatness.

 

Yes, some may want to crank this up too – as one more “weapon” in the run-up to what IS coming! It can’t hurt….

Conservative Vision vs. Leftist Vision – The Next Civil War


John R. Houk

© July 2, 2018

Dems are promoting confrontation against those that have an ideological difference with the Leftist line of thought. Those that differ ideologically are Conservatives and President Trump supporters in particular.

 

The current face of the rabble-rousing Dems is Rep. Maxine Waters. Soon after she began a campaign of pushing her comrade listeners to confront members of the Trump Administration – which turns out to be Conservative Republicans not actually in the Administration – Maxine acolytes have been accosting people so viciously with verbal abuse and profanity, I am surprised fists haven’t flown.

 

There are probably several incidents, but what comes to the top of my mind are Secretary Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi all accosted in public venues by Trump-hating Leftist Loons.

 

Kirstjen Nielsen, Sarah Huckabee Sanders & Pam Bondi

 

In the case of those three women I can see a scenario in which a chivalrous male or group of males physically takes a swing at idiot Leftists. From there I can see groups of Trump supporters begin engaging groups of hostile Dems, Leftist Loons and downright Marxists like Antifa.

 

Eventually rioting escalates into armed confrontations. Then what follows? Probably the next Civil War in the United States of America.

America’s COMING civil war? Too late, it has already begun

 

By Glenn Reynolds

Published July 2, 2018

Jewish World Review

 

Cracked U.S. Flag

 

The other day, author Tom Ricks asked whether we’re heading toward a civil war. “I don’t believe we’re to Kansas of the 1850s yet. But we seem to be lurching . . . in that direction,” he wrote.

Ricks was commenting on “What Democratic rage would look like,” a Bloomberg opinion column that quotes political scientist Thomas Schaller as saying, “I think we’re at the beginning of a soft civil war. … I don’t know if the country gets out of it whole.”

 

That sounds pretty serious. The column by Francis Wilkinson presents a catalog of things Democrats are mad about — from the existence of the electoral college to Trump’s “propaganda apparatus” — and predicts that if Democrats lose the midterm elections, there will be hell to pay. (And Republicans, you know, could make a similar list of their own complaints.)

“I don’t know exactly what that would look like,” Wilkinson writes. “But liberals have a great deal of cultural, academic and economic heft, stretching from Hollywood to Harvard. Just this week, some Hollywood powerhouses flirted with leveraging their clout against the Trumpist Fox News. There are endless variations on such a power play. If Democrats opt to use their power more aggressively — breaking rules — Schaller’s soft civil war hardly seems unlikely.”

 

THE CIVIL WAR IS ALREADY STARTING

 

Well, actually this sort of thing seems to be well underway. Hollywood has basically turned its products, and its award shows, into showcases for “the resistance.” Americans are already sorting themselves into communities that are predominantly red or blue. And in heavily blue Washington, D.C., Trump staffers find that a lot of people don’t want to date them because of their politics.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was even kicked out of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, because the owner and employees disliked her politics. This seems like a small thing, but it would have been largely unthinkable a generation ago.

And, in a somewhat less “soft” manifestation, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was bullied out of a restaurant by an angry anti-Trump mob, and a similar mob also showed up outside of her home.

 

Will it get worse? Probably. To have a civil war, soft or otherwise, takes two sides. But as pseudonymous tweeter Thomas H. Crown notes, it’s childishly easy in these days to identify people in mobs, and then to dispatch similar mobs to their homes and workplaces. Eventually, he notes, it becomes “protesters all the way down, and if we haven’t yet figured out that can lead to political violence, we’re dumb.”

Apparently, some of us are dumb or else want violence. As Crown warns, “We carefully erected civil peace to avoid this sort of devolution-to-a-mob. It is a great civilizational achievement and it is intensely fragile.” Yes, it is indeed fragile, and many people will miss it when it’s entirely gone.

 

POLITICAL CONTEMPT IS THE PROBLEM

 

Marriage counselors say that when a couple view one another with contempt, it’s a top indicator that the relationship is likely to fail. Americans, who used to know how to disagree with one another without being mutually contemptuous, seem to be forgetting this. And the news media, which promote shrieking outrage in pursuit of ratings and page views, are making the problem worse.

What would make things better? It would be nice if people felt social ties that transcend politics. Americans’ lives used to involve a lot more intermediating institutions — churches, fraternal organizations, neighborhoods — that crossed political lines. Those have shrunk and decayed, and in fact, for many people politics seems to have become a substitute for religion or fraternal organizations. If you find your identity in your politics, you’re not going to identify with people who don’t share them.

The rules of bourgeois civility also helped keep things in check, but of course those rules have been shredded for years. We may come to miss them.

America had one disastrous civil war, and those who fought it did a surprisingly good job of coming together afterward, realizing how awful it was to have a political divide that set brother against brother. Let us hope that we will not have to learn that lesson again in a similar fashion.

The second ‘civil’ war

 

By Bob Livingston

Personal Liberty

 

Maxine Waters Rabble-Rousing

 

The “tolerant” left will tolerate nothing that doesn’t comport to their radical orthodoxy. And seeing their policies rejected by the electorate, they have sought to use government, the courts and a bullying media to force their will on others. Now they’re employing a new tactic: encouraging and engaging in outright bullying and physical confrontations.

 

In the last several days we’ve seen President Donald Trump’s Department of Homeland Security Secretary and her staff harassed as they ate at a public restaurant, Trump’s spokes puppet [Blog Editor: Poor choice of words for a victim of the Left] Sarah Huckabee Sanders asked to leave run out of a restaurant (where the restaurant owner then followed her family to another restaurant and verbally harangued them), Trump staffer Stephen Miller’s apartment swarmed by protesters who tacked up “Wanted” posters, Senator Mitch McConnell and his wife Elaine Chao, Secretary of Transportation, surrounded and shouted at by a mob of “students,” a DHS staffer reporting a decapitated and burned animal carcass being left on his porch, and Representative Maxine Waters (Communist-California) calling for organized mobs to look for “anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station,” and for them to “get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

 

The mainstream propaganda media are providing cover and granting legitimacy for these actions both subtly and overtly. Any calls for tamping down the vitriol are tepid and feckless, at best.

 

The violent, radical left seems to be revising its playbook from the 1970s. We’ve seen their protests and demonstrations escalate since Trump’s election.

 

Civility in political discussion is now passé. Of course, name-calling, expletives, ad hominems and physical attacks are the refuge of the ignorant. It’s a convenient fallback position for those unable or unwilling to defend their positions with facts.

 

It is also a common practice of the ignorant to automatically assign evil motives to a person or group expressing a counter opinion. Many reach the conclusion that any person or any group that disagrees politically or philosophically is somehow bad and intends to inflict as much harm or heartache as possible on their opponents.

 

But incivility in political discourse is not new. And anyone who takes an honest look at American history understands this.

 

Thomas Jefferson once said, “It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions.”

 

It pains many of us still, because as long as this practice continues we will be opposing one another rather than mounting opposition to those in positions of power who continue to steal our freedoms by passing unConstitutional laws and steal our wealth by debasing our currency.

 

As the left is increasingly inciting violence, it should bear in mind the maxim that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. There will eventually be a response by equally radical right.

 

Remember that governments — all governments — need crisis, no matter how much lip service they give to “peace.” Crisis is a well-known Machiavellian strategy to gain and solidify political power and persuade public opinion.

 

Crisis provides the stage where governments can control all sides. At least they can arrange events to “naturally” unfold.

 

We are living in critical times. We are seeing before our eyes the breakdown of the rule of law, which leads to the breakdown of law and order. It’s increasingly obvious that mass chaos if not outright civil war is the agenda of the radical left. Remember there is nothing “civil” about civil wars.

Israel Looks to Self-Preservation


John R. Houk

© June 21, 2018

 

Yesterday I receive an email from Ari Bussel sharing an Israel GPO News Update about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addresses a graduation ceremony of Israel Defense Forces (IDF) officers.

 

PM Netanyahu Addressing IDF Officer Graduation Photo by Kobi Gideon (GPO)

 

In that address Netanyahu talks about military/terrorist threats from Hamas in Gaza to the south and Iran building threatening military capabilities toward the north in Syria. Here is that relatively short news release from the Israel GPO:

 

PM Netanyahu Addresses IDF Officers’ Course Graduation Ceremony

 

Communicated by the Prime Minister’s Media Adviser

20 June 2018

GPO News

 

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, today (Wednesday, 20 June 2018), at IDF Training Base #1, addressed an IDF officers’ course graduation ceremony. Following is an excerpt from his remarks:

 

“I do not intend to go into detail about what we are planning vis-à-vis Gaza. The intensity will be stepped up as necessary. We are prepared for any scenario and our enemies would do well to understand this – now.

 

Regarding the Syrian front, we are constantly working to prevent Iranian forces and their proxies from establishing a military presence there. We will not allow those who call for our destruction to turn Syria into a base for aggression against Israel.

 

The iron fist of the IDF is powerfully striking whoever strives to attack us, and will continue to do so.”

 

In America you probably have no clue to what Prime Minister Netanyahu was talking about thanks to the lack of reporting by the Mainstream Media (MSM). OR if they do report, it is some disinformation blaming Israel for violence on the Gaza-Israel border or perhaps an idiotic accusation that Israel is attacking Iranian military assets in Syria especially near Syrian/Israeli border. Even after continued Islamic terrorist attacks by Hamas and affiliates against Israeli civilians originating from Gaza, the UN condemns Israel for reprisals.

 

Here is an example of Hamas/Islamic Jihad/UN hypocrisy:

 

Hamas and Islamic Jihad: Israeli Airstrikes Will Be Answered With Rocket Fire

 

By Tazpit Press Service

June 21, 2018 – 10:15 am

Breaking Israel News

Terrorist factions in the Gaza Strip, including Hamas and the Islamic Jihad warned Wednesday that Israeli airstrikes on the Strip will be met with rocket fire from Gaza.

 

In a statement released to the media, the factions took responsibility for the barrage of rockets fired at Israel on Tuesday night, which they said was a “response to Israel’s continuous aggression against Gaza,” adding that “the enemy’s leadership will bear full responsibility for its aggression and will pay a price for its arrogance.”

 

Hamas’ Spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum blamed Israel for the current escalation but also added that Hamas is not interested in war.

 

“It (Hamas) will always be ready to carry out its national duty of protecting the Palestinian people,” Barhoum said.

 

Earlier Wednesday, the IAF struck 25 Hamas targets in the Strip in response to ongoing cross-border arson and rocket attacks at civilian communities.

 

Five missiles hit towns around the Gaza Belt district overnight between Tuesday and Wednesday, with at least 13 rockets landing in the Eshkol Regional Council alone. No injuries were reported, but, several buildings and cars were damaged in the attacks.

 

“In response to the rockets fired throughout the night from the Gaza Strip at Israel, IAF fighter jets targeted approximately 25 terror objectives in the Gaza Strip thus far,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement. “The Hamas terror organization targeted Israeli civilians throughout the night with a severe rocket attack and is dragging the Gaza Strip and its civilians down a deteriorating path. Hamas is responsible for everything that transpires in the Gaza Strip and will bear the consequences for deliberately targeting Israeli civilians.”

Accessing Israel-Iran Simmering Rivalry In Syria – Analysis

 

By Nagapushpa Devendra

June 15, 2018

Eurasia Review

 

 

On the other side of the conflict, Iranians have begun to tamp up the rhetorical escalation that has the potential to put these two countries on a path toward open confrontation. From Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to IRGC generals there have been repetitive threat to wipe out ‘Zionists’ which has become a normal jargon in public forums. Though the rhetoric broadened that they will pursue every move with calculation and caution for two major factors.

 

 

This implacable aspiration to wipe out Israel from the map discredits Rouhani government’s claim to not pose any threat to the security and sovereignty of regional countries. In fact, the rift between Rouhani and IRGC widened with the eruption of a heated argument between Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his Military Commander Mohammad Bagheri over the true intention behind launching retaliatory missiles against Israel. In the argument, Rouhani tried to explain the detrimental effect and international repercussions on the nuclear deal.

 

As the mutual hostility between Israel-Iran has deepened in Syria, Israel stated that their defence forces were on high-alert due to irregular Iranian activities in Syria and have ordered bomb shelters to be equipped in Golan Heights. Shortly, the Syrian state media reported that the government has downed two Israeli missiles near a military base of the capital. Subsequently, another report of Israel attacking targets of the Syrian military on the outskirts of Quneitra in the Golan Heights reverberated across the region. Prior to a week of frequent Israeli strikes, three unnamed US officials stated that Israel is preparing for military action against Iran in Syria, and is seeking US support. In addition, the officials also blamed Israel for the airstrike on a military base in Hamas and Aleppo that killed over 20 military personnel, including Iranians.

 

It seems that Israel has been motivated by the desire to fight sooner rather than later. Israel considers that an attack by Iran, while not imminent, is inevitable, and that delay in attacking would involve greater risk. Usually, this happens, when the balance of military capability is expected to shift in the enemy’s favour, due to the prospects that the opponent will acquire or develop a powerful new offensive or defensive capability. …

 

Israelis firmly believe that Iran as a nuclear emergence state will bring their world to the threshold of the abyss. Probably, this would be the factor for Netanyahu to urge Trump refer to the documents provided by them on the development of Iranian nuclear deal, rather than relying on the reports provided by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). …

 

This led Putin to send Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov on an errand to Tehran where he warned Rouhani about the far-reaching consequences of Iranian retribution to an Israeli strike, not least for Russia and Syria. However, before Rouhani could curb IRGC’s manoeuvrability in Syria, IRGC appears to have fallen for Israeli bait and have launched some 20 rockets at their positions in the Golan Heights. This gave Israel a solid ground to retaliate with the largest strike they have carried out in Syria since 1970 while substantiating it as an act of self-defence which is legitimate under international law. The Israeli said, its targets included weapon storage, logistic sites and intelligence centres used by elite Iranian forces in Syria. Additionally, they have also destroyed five Syrian air-defence batteries after coming under heavy fire.

The World Holds Its Breath

Kim’s Word Means Nothing

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 5/5/2018 11:00 PM

 

North Korea and Kim Jong Un are far from “honorable”, and President Trump’s administration and everybody else must not lose their minds in a premature adulation and singing Trump’s praises, in anticipation of a Nobel Peace Prize, before they taste the proof in the pudding. Yes, it is true that President Trump’s tough talk and his tight economic sanctions on North Korea have captured Kim’s attention and seemingly renewed his interest in playing nice in the realm of international affairs and abandoning his nuclear weapons program; but, further success is highly unlikely as the historical record shows, despite the short memories of the American people and their hopes that this president and the U.S. will not “get played” once more.

 

Kim Jong Un is far from an ordinary dictator. He has murdered his own senior military officers for the slightest of perceived insults, he executed his uncle and he had his brother assassinated. And just a few short months ago, he was threatening U.S. cities and territories with nuclear annihilation.

 

In a surreal moment, America witnessed North Korea’s evil Little Dictator and South Korean President Moon Jae In shake hands on April 27th in  Panmunjom, as Kim first stepped across the demarcation line into South Korea and Moon reciprocated and stepped into North Korea; and, they later signed the ‘Panmunjom Agreement’ this day, that stated in part, “there will be no more war on the Korean Peninsula and thus a new era of peace has begun.”

 

Who could have imagined six months ago, that the world would see the leaders of North and South Korea embrace or hear South Korean President Moon Jae In recommend President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize?

 

President Trump does deserve credit for taking North Korea to task for its evil acts and malfeasance, such as the horrific torture that resulted in Otto Warmbier’s death — a slow murder that culminated weeks after the torture hollowed out the mind of this young man, whose only “crime” was seeking a souvenir of his visit. He also ordered the U.S Treasury Department to clamp down on North Korea through economic sanctions, and he motivated the United Nations Security Council to do the same, in response to an assortment of aggressive North Korean missile tests.

 

However, President Trump’s negotiators, the American people and the international coalition overseeing this matter of North Korean denuclearization should not fool itself with high expectations and see successes where none exist, until they are in fact verified. The world has been here with North Korea on numerous other occasions.

 

In May of 1972, a similar agreement was reached between the Korean Bureau CIA director, Lee Hu Rak, and Kim Family Regime cadre members in Pyongyang, but nothing came from it. In 1989, Pyongyang held out the hope of a nuclear free Korean Peninsula, and afterwards, it began requiring conditions from the George H.W. Bush administration and won one concession after another, sending the message that America could be played.

 

There was also the Joint Declaration of the Denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in 1992, which was obviously discarded by North Korea. North Korea ultimately refused to sign a “safeguards” agreement, and it perpetrated mass deception, as it designated its nuclear plants as something they were not.

 

The Clinton administration essentially abandoned all efforts towards inspections. Under Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, the United States gave away the farm, appeasing North Korea [PDF pages 15,16 & 20] through shipments of food and oil, essentially speaking softly and carrying a big carrot.

 

Trump’s team must deal with the facts that North Korea’s production of fissile material is continuing at a furious pace, and according to the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency, North Korea is producing enough material for twelve nuclear weapons a year, also detailed by Adam Mount and Ankit Panda on April 21st in The Atlantic.  Also, the U.S. must note that in 2012, North Korea simply reclassified its nuclear missile tests as space launches to circumvent its 2012 agreement. Even now, there are indications that North Korea is continuing work on its most advanced ICBM, the Hwasong-15.

 

Although Kim did state that nuclear missile tests would be suspended for the foreseeable future, Western media missed the core of Kim’s message. Kim’s moratorium is, in his mind, the next logical step to a fully operational nuclear weapons program, not a concession to the United States before any comprehensive negotiations over his nuclear program. Not once has Kim uttered the word “denuclearization”.

 

Even President Bill Clinton’s Secretary of Defense, William Perry was wary of any North Korean promises, telling the New York Times: “I’d rather [face the risk] of war than face the risk of even greater catastrophe two or three years from now.

 

Just as with past regimes, Kim’s word and signature on paper mean absolutely nothing. He can break any moratorium or any agreement and treaty, just as Pyongyang did in 2006, when it broke a 1999 moratorium on missile launches. His pledge to a temporary moratorium on his nuclear program and halting the proliferation of nuclear technology is not worth the paper it is printed on without any verification, and Pres. Trump and his negotiators cannot lose sight of this fact, going forward.

 

In short, America can look for North Korea to continue trying to separate South Korea from its alliance with the U.S. and eventually absorbing South Korea under Pyongyang’s hardcore communist rule, while North Korea will also continue to produce and test more nuclear missiles of multiple range capabilities and warheads. And, despite vague statements from North Korean state media and optimism from South Korea’s leaders, there is little hard evidence that North Korea is truly interested in abandoning its nuclear weapons program for security, economic and political concessions.

 

The reunification of the two Korea’s would hold even more significant regional and global geopolitical ramifications, that would heavily bear on U.S. vital national security interests, already on National Security Advisor John Bolton’s radar and contingency plans. The U.S. would most certainly be asked to withdraw from Korea, which would coincide  with China and their current efforts aimed at expelling the U.S. from the Pacific Theater, as such movements are also ongoing in both the Philippines and Okinawa. The withdrawal of U.S. soldiers from Korea would be a strategic grand slam for China, an emerging and expanding totalitarian nation that views America’s presence in the Pacific as an impediment to their long-term agenda to become a regional, and then global, hegemon.

 

These are interesting and dangerous times, and the only good solution to this entire mess is actual regime change in North Korea or the reunification of a non-nuclear Korea under South Korea’s auspices, guidance and democratic republic form of government. Whatever President Trump and his team of negotiators do, Trump must hold the line and protect America’s vital security interests first and foremost, wherever those interests are found, and he must be prepared to walk away from any deal that does not have North Korea giving up its nuclear weapons program in a matter of months. This is the time for strong, clear, no-nonsense meaning in America’s message to all parties concerned, as the world holds its breath, watches and waits.

The Gaza Clashes: What’s Really Happening

 

By DANIEL POMERANTZ 

 APRIL 9, 2018

HonestReporting

Since March 30, there have been intermittent protests, riots, and even armed attacks at the Gaza border.

 

Much of the media coverage has been so poorly informed or even outright misleading, that it can be almost impossible to understand what’s really happening. Israel has, in many cases, been made out to be a violent aggressor intentionally killing peaceful protesters.

 

Nothing could be farther from the truth.

 

That’s why HonestReporting will be actively monitoring, analyzing and communicating throughout these events.

 

Here, for your use and information, is what we’ve seen so far:

 

Re-cap of events

 

  • On April 1, we posted this explanation and analysis of the events up to that date. It was immediately clear that the “protests” also included molotov cocktails, burning tires, rock throwing, and in one case even live gunfire at the IDF.  There were ongoing attempts by rioters to breach the border fence and enter Israel.

 

  • Of the 30,000 Palestinians present, 16 were reportedly killed by IDF sniper fire. The figure later increased to 19.

 

  • It was well known since April 1 that at least ten of the casualties had clear affiliations to terror groups, including Hamas. An analysis of open-source information from Palestinian media brought that number up to 15, and HonestReporting was the first to publish that new information on April 5.

 

  • Another protest/riot on April 6 brought 20,000 people and new violence: including the burning of what may have been 10,000 tires, and further attempts to both attack IDF soldiers and to  infiltrate Israel under the resulting smokescreen. Meanwhile, and this is not a joke, Hamas is now blaming Israel for what it claims is a “shortage” of tires in Gaza. Seriously. You couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried.

 

Palestinian Protesters

 

  • A number of Palestinians criticized Hamas for publicizing the deaths of its members, including holding military funerals and rallies. The main objection can be summarized as follows: by revealing that so many of the deaths were actually terrorists, Hamas undermines the PR illusion that this was a “peaceful protest.”

 

 

International investigations?

In the meantime, numerous international parties, including UN Secretary General António Guterres and EU chief Federica Mogherini have begun calling for an international investigation into the actions of the IDF.  Whether Israel adequately investigates itself, and whether the allegations have sufficient gravity are likely to be the key issues in determining whether the International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutes a case.

 

If the ICC does prosecute a case, Israel is not the only party under the microscope:  Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Fatou Bensouda has noted that Hamas or other Palestinian bodies could be subject to investigations related to war crimes for their use of civilians in covering violent activities.

 

The UN and EU, on the other hand, are primarily political bodies and can choose to launch their own investigations merely if their members wish to: without any regard to standards of international law.

 

When the dust settles and the burning-tire-smoke clears, international investigations will likely be the big remaining question.

 

In the meantime, the IDF has already appointed Brig. Gen. Moti Baruch, head of the General Staff’s Doctrine and Training Division to lead the IDF’s own investigation.

 

The latest updates

 

Some of the critical facts and images from Friday’s flare-up have made the mainstream news, yet some of the most informative have remained conspicuously absent.

 

Take, for example, this image round-up by Israellycool’s Aussie Dave: including telling, often dramatic pictures of events, some of which have not been published by any international news source.

 

Another telling scene was captured in this photo of a swastika flying alongside Palestinian flags, with tire-smoke all around:

 

 

 

 

A few nay-sayers on Twitter tried to claim the image was photo-shopped, until they came face to face with this video of the same:

http://s22592.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/WhatsApp-Video-2018-04-06-at-21.41.40.mp4?_=1

And speaking of tire-smoke: in this particularly shameless tweet, the Palestine diplomatic office in the US preposterously claims that Hamas’s own tire-fire is actually an Israeli nerve agent.

 

 

Here is some additional video of tires and fires throughout the area.

 

Next time you hear about Palestinians throwing “stones,” keep in mind that in at least some cases, this is what they are really talking about:

 

 

Just outside Gaza, JPost’s Seth Frantzman caught up with Richard Kemp, former commander, British forces, Afghanistan. Kemp took the media to task pointing out that they don’t necessarily fully understand events even if they’re physically close up. Specifically, Kemp clarified that this is not a “peaceful demonstration” as is often portrayed by the media but rather:

 

…a deliberate and specific intent by a major terrorist organization, recognized around the world as terrorists, to penetrate the border of the State of Israel.

 

Arab world reacts

 

Though reactions are mixed, at least some residents of Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Jordan and other Arab countries, took to social media to lambaste Hamas for its exploitation of the inhabitants of Gaza. Meanwhile, despite a show of support at the official level, it seems Palestinians in the West Bank were largely apathetic to the events in Gaza. Notably, top Palestinian Authority cleric Mahmoud al-Habbash declared:

 

[Hamas is] sending Gazans to their deaths for good headlines… [is] trading in suffering and blood [and] no longer fools Palestinian people.

 

And though it’s not in the Arab world, as long as we’re talking reactions we should give credit where it’s due: Reuters was one of the few publications to ask Israelis living near Gaza what they think. Here’s one example:

 

“I’m sorry about what is happening there. I know the situation is very, very difficult,” Israeli farmer Daniel Rahamim said about economic hardship in Gaza, the Palestinian enclave ruled by Hamas, an Islamist group that advocates Israel’s destruction.

 

“But I don’t talk about a peace deal anymore. Maybe we can achieve a long-term ceasefire,” Rahimim, 63, said as he irrigated his crops. He said his 24-year-old daughter, still “traumatized by rockets” left the area after the demonstrations started.

 

Finally, if there was any doubt about the real point of these protests and riots, Hamas leader Yehya Al-Sinwar was crystal clear:

Creeping Annexation? Nay, Complete Annexation!


John R. Houk

Thanks to an Israpundit cross post, I discovered a Jerusalem Post article that informs readers that the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians are upset that the Israel’s Knesset (a parliamentary body) is considering extending “Israeli law and administrative court jurisdiction to Area C of Judea and Samaria”.

 

This upsets fake Palestinians who believe the Biblical Land Promised to Jews is theirs even though these are primarily the Arab descendants of immigrants (See “Land Ownership in Palestine, 1880-1948” pdf study – especially pgs. 7-10), who moved to the Area for better jobs and livelihood due returning entrepreneurial Jews in business and farm techniques.

 

The JP reports the coined phrase of “Creeping Annexation” as if that was a pejorative act against the Fake Palestinians. In reality the phrase is sad, because it is an indication that Israel’s secular government is ignoring the Jewish Biblical heritage of God’s Promised Land to the promised lineage given to Abraham, Isaac (NOT Ishmael) and Jacob (renamed Israel by God Almighty and HERE).

 

There should be no “Creeping Annexation,” but rather there should be total and complete annexation of Judea and Samaria (named the West Bank by the invading Jew-Hating Arab Legion commanded by Brit John Glubb [aka Glubb Pasha] usurping Transjordan – later Jordan) under Israeli National Sovereignty.

 

Just as an aside: It is obvious I am not Jewish, but rather Christian. I consider myself a Christian Zionist. I realize there are some good historical reasons for Jews to mistrust the motives of Christians. After all Christians have a moral duty to share the Good News of Jesus Christ to offer Redemption into the Kingdom of God by faith:

 

14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. (Mark 16: 14-16 NKJVAs a Charis-maniac faith Believer, I should have included Mark 16: 17-20, but that upsets mainline Christians 😊)

 

Historically, the unfortunate truth Jews have faced from Christians is the Jewish refusal to accept Christ has led to the extreme non-Christian attitude of Jew-Hatred. Christians that failed to let Christ’s very Words sink began to develop false accusations that Jews were Christ-killers. Attributed to all Jews what a loaded tribunal of Sanhedrin Sadducees and Pharisees that tried Jesus outside their own tenets of belief out of fear the growing popularity of Jesus would harm their special station with the Romans. Incidentally, it was Roman governance in Judea that sentenced Jesus to death and executed the torture of the lash and the Crucifixion of death on the Cross. Should Christian despise and persecute all Italians today for the actions of a past Roman government?

 

To all you Antisemites out there, you might want dwell on the historical executioners of Jesus Christ the Son of God and Savior.

‘CREEPING ANNEXATION’ IN JUDEA AND SAMARIA – THE OTHER SIDE

It is a battle for Israeli democracy and the right of Jews to live in the heartland of the Jewish people; we cannot afford to lose it.

 

By MOSHE DANN

MARCH 26, 2018 21:57

Jerusalem Post

A bill under consideration by Israel’s ruling coalition to extend Israeli law and administrative court jurisdiction to Area C of Judea and Samaria, and protect the civil and legal rights of Israeli citizens living there, has prompted accusations of “creeping annexation.” These accusations are based on the assumption that the entire area is part of the “Occupied Palestinian Territories” (OPT) and that therefore all Israeli “settlements” are “illegal.”

“Creeping annexation,” however, has another dimension which is not widely acknowledged or understood, even by the Israeli government: the massive movement of Palestinian Arabs from Areas A and B (under Palestinian Authority control) to Area C (under full Israeli control).

 

Critics of extending sovereignty to Area C, in which all of the “settlements” are located, argue that Israel cannot annex the area without giving full, equal rights to the Arab population living there. Advocates of extending Israeli law to Area C argue that there are nearly half a million Jews living there, far outnumbering the Arabs. This perception was reinforced by Bimkom, a pro-Palestinian NGO, in 2008, which published “The Prohibited Zone,” listing 47,360 Arabs in 149 villages in Area C, based on the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics.

Bimkom disputed claims by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), which surveyed Arabs living in 418 Palestinian villages located partly or entirely in Area C, that numbered 228,600. “We estimate that no more than 150,000 Palestinians currently live in Area C,” it claimed in its report. It acknowledged “numerous difficulties involved in collecting data about Palestinian villages,” and noted that therefore the data represented “an approximation.”

How many Palestinian Arabs, however, actually live in Area C? That is a crucial question, and unfortunately one that the government cannot answer.

 

In 2011, UNOCHA (occupied Palestinian territory) reported that about 150,000 Arabs were living in 270 “villages, camps, and other communities,” two-thirds of which are located primarily in Areas A&B, but which extend into Area C, and an estimated 50,000 Beduin and “herders” were living in Area C.

Two years later, UNOCHA reported that an estimated 297,000 people, who had been living in 532 PA villages in A and B, had moved into Area C, building homes and taking over land, creating de facto extensions of their villages. Although illegal, the Israeli military authority in Area C, the Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) and the Israeli government have ignored this attempt to create “facts on the ground” by expanding the area which Palestinians claim as their future state. (UNOCHA reports can be accessed at its website: http://www.ochaopt.org.)

All of this has been known for a decade or more, according to the legal NGO Regavim. If true, however, why hasn’t the government done anything to stop it?

Meanwhile, COGAT, backed by the High Court and IDF judicial and administrative units, has been busy tearing down entire Jewish communities, such as Migron and Amona, destroying Jewish neighborhoods in long-established communities, such as Ofra, Bet El and Elazar, and destroying many hundreds of Jewish homes throughout the area because they were deemed “illegal,” and in some cases claimed to be “built on private Palestinian land” – although this was never proven, or even adjudicated by an Israeli court.

The failure of COGAT to protect Israel’s interests in Area C, its policy of declaring disputed land “Palestinian” and its policy of uprooting and destroying attempts by Jews to settle barren and empty areas not only leads to unnecessary confrontations, but directly affects the future of this critical area and the State of Israel.

COGAT has, whether deliberately or without understanding and forethought, undermined the right of Jews to live in the Jewish national home, Eretz Yisrael. It has pursued a dangerous and self-defeating agenda by refusing to protect Israeli civilians living in Judea and Samaria. It has betrayed the values of Zionism and the nation-state of the Jewish people, and the IDF’s own code of ethics. The government must take responsibility; it cannot be left to the whims, bias or ignorance of military bureaucrats.

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked’s judicial reforms are the first step toward establishing a fair, balanced, clear and coherent policy. It is a battle for Israeli democracy and the right of Jews to live in the heartland of the Jewish people; we cannot afford to lose it.
