America Sends Money to Terrorists at Israel’s Expense


Hamas - We need handout toon

Hmm … As an American, what would you think if the Obama Administration directed hundreds of millions of dollars to go to Islamic Terrorists? As an American you should be supportive of the USA’s only real ally in the Middle East – Israel. A Jim Kouri article at Examiner.com reported on 10/12/14 that President Barack Hussein Obama’s Administration has GIVEN the Hamas Islamic terrorists $212 MILLION bucks because those poor abused folks in Gaza have been abused by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF):

 

Kerry had arrived in Cairo early Sunday specifically attend the conference with other leaders to discuss raising billions of dollars to rebuild the Gaza Strip, according to counterterrorism expert Raoul Plattsberg.

 

“The humanitarian challenges [are] enormous and the [Palestinian] people of Gaza need our help desperately, not tomorrow, not next week, they need it now,” Kerry said during the conference that had the participation of officials from 50 countries and 20 NGOs (non-government organizations). (Obama, Kerry to fork over another $212 million to Hamas-ruled Gaza; By Jim Kouri; Examiner.com; 10/12/14)

 

EXCUSE ME! Hamas is on the U.S. State Department’s terrorist watch list and has been so since 1997.

 

 

Hamas, an acronym for Harakat al-Muqawama al-Islamiya (“Islamic Resistance Movement”), was founded by Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, a Palestinian cleric who became an activist in local branches of the Muslim Brotherhood after dedicating his early life to Islamic scholarship in Cairo. …

 

… Hamas published its charter, calling for the destruction of Israel and the establishment of an Islamic society in historic Palestine. READ ENTIRE BACKGROUNDER (Hamas; By Zachary Laub; CFR; Updated 8/1/14)

 

Obama’s supports the enemies of our ally Israel. The propaganda thus justifies Hamas targeting of Jewish civilians – men, women, teenagers and children – for murder in the name of Islam and for the destruction of Israel. American and European Leftists are okay with this kind of “humanitarian” support because apparently it is acceptable to murder Jews in a more technological society such as tiny Israel and whine about a sophisticated response from Israel that rips Hamas’ infrastructure (See Also HERE) that also kills human shields that are as much voluntary as they may be coerced to sacrifice themselves to protect Hamas military assets that target Israeli cities.

 

I have a problem with this idiotic antisemitic reasoning by Western Leftists. AND my fellow Americans, you should have a problem with this as well.

 

Israel has struggled to exist as an independent nation in the ORIGINAL homeland of the world’s Jews since 1948 when FIVE (or seven considering the Arab-Muslim militia set-up within the defunct British Mandate for Palestine) invading Muslim-nation armies tried to destroy it more for selfish territorial desires by relatively newly independent Muslim nations using the Islamic dar al-Islam (House of Islam) argument that Muslims were being displaced by usurping post-WWII European Jews.

 

The only thing remotely true about the Muslim apologist propaganda is that a majority of Jews returning to their ancient homeland were from persecuted European nations stretching from the Atlantic to Russia (then USSR). These European Jews began returning to their homeland even before WWII which means before Adolf Hitler made his contemptuous attempt to exterminate Jews of irreligious heritage and religious Jews from the European continent. Of course after the Western world became aware of the result of Hitler’s attempted Final Solution for Jewry via the Holocaust murdering about SIX MILLION Jews, the impetus to establish a sovereign Jewish Nation became something the West’s more democratic elected governments were forced to listen in a more positive manner.

 

Hence when many Western nations began to view their National Interests lay more with pacifying Middle Eastern Muslims than supporting an independent sovereign Jewish Nation, some of those Western nations began backroom efforts to thwart an independent Israel. The United Kingdom in particular sent British military officers as the leadership corps of Jordan’s (then Transjordan) Arab Legion which was the only Muslim military force that was able to push back the rag tag but unified Jewish forces of the new Israel. Jordan’s Arab Legion under the command of British generalship pushed Israeli forces back from historical Judea-Samaria rooted out the ancient Jewish Quarter of the Jerusalem Old City (now termed as East Jerusalem by Muslim apologists and global Leftists) until a rough armistice was reached after it became apparent the other invading Muslim armies failed in their unholy quest to drive Jews into the Mediterranean Sea completing another Holocaust of Jews a mere three years after Hitler’s execution of his Final Solution Holocaust.

 

I am still amazed that Muslims have been taught so much hatred toward Jews that they cannot agree to befriending a very tiny sliver of land of the ancient Jewish Homeland to Jews who have had both a heartfelt desire to live free from antisemitic persecution and/or a religious desire to attain their aged old prayer of “next year in Jerusalem” (Orthodox thinking HERE and HERE; Jewish Reform Allegorical thinking HERE and HERE; Conservative/Masorti thinking HERE; Historical HEREFull Disclosure: I am what many would describe as a Christian Zionist [ICEJ & John Hagee] hence the preceding links on Jewish attitudes toward this prayer is subject to my quick perusal and may not be totally accurate).

 

The Muslim-Arabs accredited as displaced after 1948 are largely (but obviously not totally) come from Muslim descendants that were also fairly recent arrivals to the part of the Levant which is now Israel. AND during the years of Muslim nations threatening to destroy Israel those displaced Muslims got out of dodge because they didn’t want to be around when Jews defending their new sovereignty fought with blood thirsty Muslim-Arab armies dedicated to killing Jews. Those displaced Muslims chose not to be victims of the crossfire, indeed the invading armies had sent out word to flee to safety until the Jews were cleansed from the land.

 

So when the majority of invading armies failed in their mission to destroy Israel, that left a refugee problem that the nations representing those invading armies REFUSED to solve by absorbing them into their own nations. Instead it would be decided to exploit those refugees as a tool for continuous future invasions and after 1967 the promotion of Islamic terrorism to undermine Israel’s existence.

Responding to the very Valid Point of Steve Thomas

I Maintain Israel has a Right of Reprisal

 

John R. Houk

Mr. Thomas if I come across as irritated I am not trying to be disrespectful.

 

The Jewish Tanakh is roughly the Christian Old Testament, right? God told the 12 tribes of Israel to cleanse the land promised to Abraham’s descendants because their sins had reached the point of no-return. Sodom and Gomorrah is an example of the point of no-return except the Sodomite and Gomorrahite region was so pitifully sinful that God could not find even 10 righteous people. God honored Abraham for making an escape for Lot and any family that believed the angels. God Himself destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.

 

God told the Israelite tribes to possess the land promised to cleanse the region of sinful people and their sinful edifices and evidently even the livestock and gold was corrupted by being around the people because God told them not to keep the booty. Much to God’s displeasure the Canaanite people were not completely destroyed and the Israelites took booty.

 

Contrast that with the Quran, Hadith and Sunnah.

 

Under Mohammed’s direction which he claimed was under Allah’s direction, the neophyte Muslims raided, stole, booty, raped women and acquired slaves. THEN if there was no conversion to Islam or at least an absolute submission to Mohammed and Allah the order was mass execution. So the only survivors were slaves (mostly women), people who converted to Islam or people who were allowed to remain Jewish or Christian as long they did nothing to insult Mohammed, Allah and Islam in general. AND this practice is encoded theologically and politically in the Quran, Hadith and Sunnah as the example of the perfect man Mohammed.

 

Israelites were to ONLY conquer and claim the Promised Land.

 

Muslims are commanded to Jihad until the entire world is Muslim. AND specifically the Quran, Hadith and Sunnah are primarily disparaging against the Jews first and then Christians second as People of the Book of which Muslims are told is corrupted. So spare them only as long as they are submissive. In the end Muslims are taught that Jesus and the Mahdi will return to conclude what the Muslims were unable to – err – persuade Jews and Christians to do in the first place; i.e. convert or kill.

 

The Tanakh version of killing debauched ungodly people in one region at a certain to time is absolutely different than the Muslim mandate to offer conversion, submission or die universally and perpetually. AND this is why Arabs that call themselves Palestinians will never make the kind of peace with Israel that the foolish West and the foolish liberal Jews will never comprehend. All agreements in the Muslim mind is only temporary until a position of superiority is achieved to complete the mission.

 

I know that sounds rough and incomprehensible, but this is the primary reason I support Israeli reprisals for acts of terrorism committed by the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians.

 

By the way – in case you didn’t realize it there was no such thing as a Palestinian-Arab until after refugees were created by invading Arab armies trying to exterminate the newly independent Israel. After the miracle of Israeli victory in 1948, the invading nations refused to absorb the displaced Arabs into their nations. A displacement I might add that occurred because the invading Arab armies had warned the Arabs residing in the new Israel to stay out of the way so they would not get hurt. I don’t know about you but the odd were like 6 to 1 the invading Arabs would succeed in exterminating Jews; I would have collected what belongings I had to stay out the way too.

 

YET the miracle did happen! Israel overcame 6 to 1 odds and fought the Arab armies to a standstill. Israel’s only real defeat in that war of independence began in 1948 was the Arab Legion beating back Israeli forces in Judea-Samaria up to the eastern half of Jerusalem (which is where the ancient Jewish Quarter was located) ONLY by the direction of British army officers who had trained the (then) Transjordan Arab Legion. AND then a couple of years later, Transjordan formally and arbitrarily annexed Judea-Samaria after Jewish holy sites were totally desecrated and changed the name to the West Bank. Transjordan proper was on the East Bank of the Jordan River so old King Abdullah changed the name of his Kingdom from Transjordan to Jordan because he now possessed both banks of the Jordan River.

 

This displaced Arabs that congregated in Jordan’s West Bank were given a limited Jordanian citizenship. BUT those displaced Arabs were never given full citizenship rights. Why? Because they outnumbered the Bedouin population that was the core of King Abdullah’s (and late King Hussein’s) Arab Legion to retain his monarchy and rule. Now talk about an apartheid state, right?

 

Prior to 1948, Jews were more often referenced as Palestinians than Arabs in the region. After some agitation from Mufti of Jerusalem al-Hajj Amin al-Husayni (or other Arabic variations of the Mufti’s name), Arabs began to look for an identity to compete with Jews colonizing their homeland under the auspices of Zionism. Al-Husayni was a Jew-hater that even helped organize Muslims during WWII to ally with Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Final Solution for Jews. However the real impetus for an entity of Arabs that would call themselves Palestinians emerged because the Arab nations grew weary of losing to the little sliver of land known as Israel. So they had an Arab League meeting in Cairo and endorsed the Egyptian born Yasser Arafat to lead an umbrella terrorist organization known as the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). This is when the descendants of 1948 Arab refugees created by invading Arab nations began to create the myth of a Palestinian people. That Cairo meeting took place in 1964 three years before the Arab nations tried again to exterminate Israel and lost. Israel regained Judea-Samaria stolen by Jordan. Jordan would not let their West Bank citizens move to the East Bank because the Hashemite royal family of Jordan did not desire to lose their monarchy. Actually the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians that were in the East Bank Jordan proper were expelled militarily for fear Yasser Arafat would execute a coup.

 

The PLO roughly transformed into the Palestinian Authority (PA) with terrorist weary Western nations and terrorist weary liberal Jews that deluded themselves that giving land to a Jew-hating people would bring peace between little Israel and the Muslim-Arab nations. As I explained earlier that will never occur as long as Muslims are faithful to the Quran, Hadith and Sunnah with Israel being exterminated and the Jews driven into the sea in another modern day Holocaust.

 

There is nothing that will convince me that nothing short of Israel exercising their military prowess will preserve the Jewish Nation of Israel.

Move Arab Refugees back to their Respective Home of Origin


Palestine State Quiz

 

John R. Houk

© October 3, 2011

 

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is very near on taking a vote on whether the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians should acquire a sovereign nation even if doing so will steal the land of Jewish heritage from Israel which includes ONE-HALF of Jerusalem the Israeli capital city.

 

I realize I am in the global minority on what land belongs to whom when it comes to Judea and Samaria (known as the West Bank by those who believe Palestinian propaganda); however I am a Bible guy and definitely NOT a Quran guy. Biblically much of the land under control by Muslims was God-given land promised to Abraham, Isaac (NOT ISHMAEL) and Jacob (renamed Israel by God Almighty); the little sliver of land the Jewish State has as sovereign land is not the land deserved.

 

Biblical Christians agree with Jewish Zionists about the land of Israel that should be Israel’s. Now I realize as a Biblical Christian/Christian Zionist my reasoning for the “why” of a united Jerusalem and a Greater Israel may differ from Jewish Zionists; nonetheless the goal is the same.

 

Any Muslim claim is based on Islamic imperialism after the period of pseudo-prophet (probably really “profit” since Islamic imperialism was based on booty and slaves as much as conversion) Mohammed’s death. The Jews en masse were given the boot by Romans that grew weary of Jews desiring an independence from Roman rule roughly between 70 AD and 135AD. A few Jews were retained in the land of Israel renamed Palestina by spiteful Romans. You can see the parallel between Palestina and the modern rendition of Palestine. The Romans adopted the name Palestina as a derivative of the Jewish ancient enemy actually vanquished by the Kingdom of David and Solomon – the Philistines. The primary people left in the Holy Land were the Aramaic people after the Roman enforced Diaspora of Jews. As Rome turned to Christianity so did most of the subjects under Roman rule. This included the Aramaeans. After the wars between the Byzantine Empire (East Roman) and Parthian Empire (Persian Zoroastrians) weakened them immensely, Imperialistic Muslims stepped into the vacuum and conquered the cradle of Christianity in the circa 638 AD. The Aramaeans that attempted to retain their cultural heritage maintained their Christianity for hundreds of years. Eventually Muslim oppression took its toll on the Aramaean peoples and conversions to Islam began alongside the cultural exchange of Arab civilization and the Arabic language.

 

So check this out: the Philistines were not Arabic and did not speak Arabic even of any ancient rendition of the Arabic language. The Philistines were closer in relation to the Phoenicians which also established the ancient Roman enemy of Carthage.  The Hebrew tribes of Israel found themselves expelled except for a small remnant. And even in the case of a small remnant Jews came back in small doses and then larger doses after the Spanish Inquisition. Even the City of David – Jerusalem – began to grow in a Jewish population reaching the majority in the mid-1800s.

 

When an Arab or an Arab calling them self a Palestinian stands up and tells you the people designated as Palestinians are an ancient people they are lying or are deluded or both. The closest thing to ancient for the Arab refugees was 1948 when 6 to 9 (I never get the number right) invading Arab Armies lost to little Israel thus losing their honor in allowing a non-Muslim nation to exist in their midst. The appellation of Palestinian to these Arab refugees did not occur until after Arab Armies again failed to destroy Israel in 1967. The year 1967 is the date that Israel regained control of all of Jerusalem (Where the Jewish Quarter existed prior to 1948 incidentally) and all of Judea and Samaria (renamed West Bank via conquest by then Transjordan in 1948).

 

After the 1948 Arab-Israeli war Transjordan became Jordan because its monarch decided that the land east of the Jordan River was the East Bank and the land occupied by Jordan’s Arab Legion would be the West Bank. So where is the Justice in forcing Israel to accept creating a nation by international fiat made up of the descendants of Arab refugees created by Jew-hating Arabs and Muslims trying to destroy the Jewish State of Israel?

 

Gordon James Klingenschmitt, who was booted out of the Navy Chaplain Corps for praying in the name of Jesus, has initiated a petition to Congress to stay true to:

 

HR 297

 

Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that the Secretary of State should withhold United States contributions to the regularly assessed biennial budget of the United Nations for purposes of the General Assembly of the United Nations if the General Assembly adopts a resolution in favor of recognizing a state of Palestine outside of or prior to a final status agreement negotiated between, and acceptable to, the State of Israel and the Palestinians.

 

AND

 

HR 271

 

Expressing support for the State of Israel’s right to defend Israeli sovereignty, to protect the lives and safety of the Israeli people, and to use all means necessary to confront and eliminate nuclear threats posed by the Islamic Republic of Iran, including the use of military force if no other peaceful solution can be found within reasonable time to protect against such an immediate and existential threat to the State of Israel.

 

Resolved, That the House of Representatives— …
