Is Obama Promising to Protect Iranian Nukes from Sabotage?


John R. Houk

© July 23, 2015

President Barack Hussein Obama has hailed the P5 + 1 nuke deal with Iran as a peace in our time deal. AND YET Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has these sentiments for Israel and America:

Iran’s supreme leader on Saturday hailed the Iranian masses for demanding the destruction of Israel and America, and said he hoped that God would answer their prayers.

In a viciously anti-US speech delivered in Tehran four days after Iran and the world powers signed an accord designed to thwart Iran’s nuclear program, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei praised “the slogans of the people of Iran” which “indicated what directions they’re heading for,” according to the English translation of his speech by Iran’s Press TV.

At Al-Quds day rallies last week, Khamenei noted appreciatively, “You heard ‘Death to Israel’, ‘Death to the US.’ You could hear it. The whole nation was shaken by these slogans. It wasn’t only confined to Tehran. The whole of the nation, you could hear, that was covered by this great movement. So we ask Almighty God to accept these prayers by the people of Iran.” (Iran’s Khamenei hails his people for demanding death to America and Israel; By TIMES OF ISRAEL STAFF AND AFP; Times of Israel; July 18, 2015, 4:37 pm)

Hmm … Since those of who pay attention KNOW President BHO is a compulsive liar to American voters which includes his used car sell-job about the Iran Nuke Deal, Iran will develop nukes. Obama has informed the gullible that Khamenei is a politician and the old Ayatollah is just playing to his constituents.

Those who believe Obama that Khamenei is merely playing to his Iranian supporters should know that the Supreme Leader was not elected to a political office. Rather Khamenei acquired the leadership mantle after the death of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. This Supreme Leader junk is the typical blend of Islamic Mosque and State. The Iranian Mosque-State theopolitical leader calls the shots and is answerable to Allah, the Hidden 12th Imam and perhaps the Guardian Council theopolitical Ayatollahs.

So Obama lies and Khamenei proclaims Iran’s reason to exist to destroy Israel and the USA for the good of Islam to spread globally. With that in mind check out how Obama’s participation in P5 + 1 has promised to Iran pertaining to the theopolitical republic’s nuclear agenda:

I know I wrote this somewhere before – either on this blog or on Twitter: The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Iran requires the P5+1 countries to protect Iranian nuclear facilities against sabotage by Israel.

However, one provision of the deal has received scant coverage. Blogs, specialized media outlets, the Israeli and some Jewish press have reported on a troubling section of the Joint Plan of Action (JPOA) that commits the signatories to help protect Iran from sabotage of its nuclear facilities. But the popular press has not widely covered this troubling element of the deal.

Arutz Sheva reports on Article 10 of the agreement:

In the deal the world powers obligate to “co-operation in the form of training courses and workshops to strengthen Iran’s ability to prevent, protect and respond to nuclear security threats to nuclear facilities and systems as well as to enable effective and sustainable nuclear security and physical protection systems.” Leaving no doubts about the intentions, the text then promises “co-operation through training and workshops to strengthen Iran’s ability to protect against, and respond to nuclear security threats, including sabotage.”

Reports are that these clauses were not present in the interim JPOA signed in April. This was apparently a last minute concession to Iran.

Since the United States and its Western allies are signatories to this agreement, the “protection” and “response” would not be to any action undertaken by them. The same can be said for China and Russia who would be unlikely to sabotage Iran anyway. Therefore, the “nuclear security threats, including sabotage” must refer to potential actions by Israel, believed to be party to previous acts of sabotage against Iran’s nuclear program.

In other words, the United States will be protecting Iran, whose leaders frequently chant “Death to America,” from Israel, frequently described as “America’s best friend in the region.”

Obama has always wanted an excuse to go to war with Israel. Now he has one. (ICYMI: P5+1 agreed to protect Iranian nuke program against Israel; Posted by Carl in Jerusalem; Israel Matzav; 7/23/15)

Israel is backed into an existential corner. Obama apparently is not only committed to destabilizing the Middle East and Muslim dominated nations, there is all the appearance Obama is in cahoots with Russia, China, UK, France, Germany and the unanimity of the United Nations Security Council will join Iran in punishingin reality destroying – the Jewish State of Israel. I guess that is Obama giving diplomacy and negotiation every opportunity to work no matter the consequences.

The truth of the matter is Israel has to do something militarily even if the Western world joins the despotism inherent in the Eastern world as well as the Muslim world to take on that tiny sliver of land that is ONLY a portion God promised to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. OR Israel can wait until Iran designs WMD loaded ICBMs tactically aimed to only destroy Jewish population centers.

OR Congress can override any Obama veto and negate his idiotic deal that at best Iran becomes a nuke power in ten years, or at worst the Iranian Twelver Ayatollahs laugh at the Dem Party/Obama sell-outs as they arm nuke WMDs in a very short unanticipated time beyond the belief of American statists among both Dems and Republicans who believe Iran is years from creating a nuke warhead.

A Congress rejection of Obama’s nuke deal with Iran should be followed with serious talk of impeachment if Obama punishes Israel for attacking Iranian nuke locations.

AND so I really enjoyed the ideas of David Rubin who lays out five reasons for Israel to attack Iran.

Five Reasons to Attack Iran

By David Rubin

Arutz Sheva 7 – Israel National News

Blogs- Zion’s Corner

“If someone comes to kill you, get up early to kill him first.” (Talmud Sanhedrin 72:1)

As details of the agreement with Iran continue to emerge, it becomes more and more evident that the deal is an existential danger to the survival of the State of Israel. While it is seems clear that US President Barack Obama will be preparing a compensation package to placate Israel and other concerned nations in the Middle East, this will only increase the arms race in the region, thereby making nuclear conflict more likely, as the Persian Gulf nations will now feel compelled to achieve nuclear capability to counter the Iranian threat.

There is only one realistic way of stopping that nightmare scenario – an Israeli preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, with logistic support provided by Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf nations. Such support from concerned Sunni Muslim nations would be covert, but would provide a cushion to counter the expected international condemnation against any Israeli military offensive. Sadly, there will be those Israelis who will warn against ruffling American feathers by launching an attack which would effectively scuttle the agreement, but such warnings should be ignored. The deal with Iran certainly cannot be relied on to protect Israel, and therefore, a preemptive action should be ordered ASAP for the following reasons:

1. There will be no surprise inspections of the Iranian nuclear facilities. Giving twenty-four days advance notice gives them sufficient time to hide the evidence of nuclear weapons production.

2. The Parchin military plant and the Bushehr reactor, where substantial covert nuclear activity has taken place, are not even mentioned in the deal.

3. The immediate removal of sanctions and the subsequent infusion of vast billions to Iran’s coffers will lead to a sharp increase in Iran’s already substantial support for Hamas, Hezbollah, and other terrorist organizations in the region.

4. The longer Israel waits, the more complicated a preemptive strike will become, both politically and militarily.

5. An early and effective lightning strike, while risky, will forestall a massive Middle East nuclear arms race.

If one is to believe the repeated claims of Israel’s political leadership proclaiming that “Israel will know how to defend itself”, there comes a time that bold action must be taken, despite the negative political reaction that is sure to come, at least publicly. However, the private praise for a successful operation will also pour in from every nation that has felt itself threatened by the madmen in Teheran.

Wishing Israel’s political leadership the wisdom and especially, the courage to know how and when to do what is clearly necessary!

The new government’s war on BDS


Is the global Antisemitism snowballing in the Western World’s democratic nations grown so bad that tiny Israel is becoming diplomatically isolated?

The new government’s war on BDS

By CAROLINE B. GLICK

06/04/2015

Jerusalem Post

The flagship of the diplomatic war against Israel is the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s new government is less than a month old, but it’s already apparent that it is different from its predecessors. And if it continues on its current diplomatic trajectory, it may do something that its six predecessors failed to accomplish. Netanyahu’s new government may improve Israel’s position internationally.

The stakes are high. Over the years, Israel has largely concentrated its efforts on developing the tools to contend with its military challenges. But as we have seen over the past decade and a half, Israel’s capacity to fight and defeat its enemies is not limited principally by the IDF’s war-fighting capabilities.

Israel’s ability to defend itself and its citizens is constrained first and foremost by its shrinking capacity to defend itself diplomatically. Its enemies in the diplomatic arena have met with great success in their use of diplomatic condemnation and intimidation to force Israel to limit its military operations to the point where it is incapable of defeating its enemies outright.

The flagship of the diplomatic war against Israel is the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.

Participants in the movement propagate and disseminate the libelous claim that Israel’s use of force in self-defense is inherently immoral and illegal. Over the years BDS activists’ assaults on Israel’s right to exist have become ever more shrill and radical. So, too, whereas just a few years ago their operations tended to be concentrated around military confrontations, today they are everyday occurrences. And their demands become greater and more openly anti-Semitic from week to week and day to day.

Consider the events of the past seven days alone.

Late last week Israel fended off a major international effort led by Palestinian Authority Soccer Federation chairman and former terrorist chief Jibril Rajoub to expel it from the Fédération Internationale de Football Association. Not only is Rajoub a man with blood on his hands. The Fatah luminary is admired by the Israeli far-Left while also being a favorite of Qatar, the chief state sponsor of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

Rajoub is sympathetically inclined toward enabling Hamas in Gaza to expand its presence in Judea and Samaria.

Before the government had a chance to sigh in relief that FIFA was settled, Britain’s National Union of Students voted to join the BDS movement. This means that the anti-Israel demonstrations and assaults that take place several times a week at Britain’s universities will now take place under the NUS banner.

Also Wednesday, the French telecom giant Orange’s CEO Stéphane Richard told reporters in Cairo that he wishes to cut off his contract with Israel’s Partner telecommunications company, one of Israel’s largest cellular telephone services providers.

Richard was apparently coerced into making his statement by the Egyptian BDS movement which has threatened to boycott Orange’s subsidiary in Egypt due to its contract with Partner.

Tuesday it was reported that last month the Dutch government issued a travel advisory to its citizens traveling in Israel. In an act of anti-Jewish inversion now common in the Western discourse about Israel and its enemies, the Dutch government warned that Jews in Judea and Samaria constitute a threat to Dutch travelers because they throw stones “toward Palestinian and foreign vehicles.”

In the US, the Anti-Defamation League reported that this past academic year there was a 38 percent rise in anti-Israel events on college campuses over the previous year. The number of BDS campaigns doubled over the previous academic year.

By ADL’s count, there were 520 anti-Israel events on campuses. BDS campaigns were initiated on 29 campuses.

At the UN, Tuesday “The Palestinian Return Center,” Hamas’s European chapter, was granted official status as a recognized nongovernmental organization by the UN’s Commission on NGOs. Now, thanks to the commission, Hamas terrorists can participate in UN meetings, have full access to UN facilities and wear their new, official UN badges.

Incidentally, the same commission rejected a request by ZAKA to receive the same status. ZAKA is an Israeli NGO that provides first aid and handles the remains of terrorism victims and victims of major disasters in Israel and worldwide.

Also at the UN, Leila Zerrougui, the envoy for children in armed conflicts, is pushing to get the IDF added to the blacklist of groups that harm children.

Boko Haram, Islamic State, al-Qaida and the Taliban are among the current names of the list.

Wednesday Republican Sen. Ted Cruz sent a pointed letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemning Zerrougui’s actions. Cruz threatened, “Congress will have no choice but to reassess the United States’ relationship with the United Nations and consider serious consequences if you choose to take this action.”

In contrast to Cruz’s position, in his interview with Channel 2 broadcast Tuesday, US President Barack Obama indicated that due to the rising tide of anti-Israel sentiment and campaigns, if Israel doesn’t make unreciprocated concessions to the PA then the administration will have no choice but to join the anti-Israel UN bandwagon.

The time has come, then, for Israel to take the wheels off the wagon.

For the past dozen years or so, pro-Israel activists in the US in particular have been fighting an uphill, lonely battle against the organizations promoting the BDS movement. Among their top complaints has been the constant refrain that the Israeli government has undermined their actions by standing silent or denying what was happening or treating Israel’s defenders as the moral equivalents of its adversaries.

To some degree, the reticence of the Foreign Ministry was understandable. The BDS Israel haters often claim that they wage political and economic warfare against Israel and isolate and humiliate Israel supporters in the West to promote peace.

This claim has always been ridiculous. You can’t support peace and boycott Jewish-owned businesses in all or parts of Israel. You can’t support peace and boycott Israeli students and professors and dance troupes.

But so long as the word “peace” has been involved, or the boycotters have pretended that they are only referring to Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem, the Foreign Ministry has by and large taken them at face value and pretended that their smear operation is nothing to worry about.

To the extent they have tried to deal with the growing hate Israel phenomenon, they have run away from its essence. Instead, our senior diplomats have said that the best way to combat BDS is by rebranding Israel as the start-up, gay, friendly state with great beaches.

And largely as a result of this self-induced paralysis and blindness, pro-Israel activists have been isolated.

Jewish anti-Israel organizations such as J Street, Open Hillel and the New Israel Fund in the US, and European governments and government- funded organizations in Europe have operated largely free from criticism by official Israeli voices unwilling to take sides in the debate about the country’s right to exist and defend itself.

All the while, Israel’s diplomatic standing has gone from weak to incapacitated.

Against this backdrop, statements and actions by the new Netanyahu government are encouraging because, unlike its predecessors, it seems to have stopped playing the fool.

At the outset of this week’s cabinet meeting, Netanyahu spoke out angrily and specifically against the BDS movement and warned that Israel must not blame itself for the BDS haters’ assaults against it.

As he put it, “The last thing we need to do is to bow our heads and ask where we went wrong, where we erred. We have done nothing wrong and we have not erred. We are not a perfect country; we do not pretend to be such, but they are setting standards for us that are both twisted and higher than those for any other country, any other democracy.”

Wednesday Netanyahu assailed the British student union’s decision to join the BDS movement.

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked excoriated the BDS movement at the Knesset, stating openly that it is the new Jew hatred.

Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely has translated this new position into action. Among other things, this week she instructed Israel’s ambassador to Switzerland to formally demand that the Swiss government and the Zurich municipality rescind their financial support for the planned Breaking the Silence conference this month in Zurich. The purpose of the conference, like the purpose of the foreign-funded group more generally, is to demonize and libel the IDF.

So it appears that the government has decided to finally go on offense. But if this is true, then much more can and must be done immediately.

Take the Dutch travel advisory for instance. Israel wasted no time in condemning Holland’s move. But the Dutch statement was just the tip of the iceberg.

Holland spends millions every year to directly and indirectly finance organizations whose sole purpose is to demonize Israel and Israelis. The Dutch government paid a lot of money to invent lies about Israel and its Jews that then formed the basis of its malicious, bigoted travel advisory.

The Israeli embassy at the Hague as well as the Foreign Ministry must demand not only a retraction of the travel warning. They must demand an immediate cessation of this subversive, adversarial campaign.

So, too, while the British government responded with embarrassment to the BDS vote of the NUS, the fact is that the British government holds responsibility for the strength and radicalism of the BDS movement in Britain. Like Holland, the UK spends millions every year financing NGOs whose purpose is to undermine Israeli sovereignty, demonize the IDF, attack Israel’s right to exist and fund Palestinian terrorists.

Every year, the British government funds dozens of Israeli and Palestinian-registered NGOs whose purpose is to make Israel into an international pariah unable to wage wars of self-defense without risking war crimes tribunals, economic boycotts and international humiliation.

Rather than sufficing with expressions of thanks to the Cameron government for distancing itself from the student union’s boycott of Israel, the government must demand the cessation of direct and indirect British governmental funding of these groups and their campaigns.

The BDS movement is a proxy war. It is being waged against Israel not only by deep-pocketed Arab governments which fund the NGOs that carry the battle to the streets. It is also being waged by hypocritical leftist donors in the US and by supposedly friendly European governments.

The government has taken the first steps in beating back this onslaught. But the hour is late and the stakes are high. The BDS movement is a strategic threat because as it gets stronger, Israel’s ability to wage war on the military battlefield becomes further constrained and the threats to Israel’s economy and social fabric grow. BDS must be defeated piece by piece in an unrelenting offensive that attacks its sources and puts it out of business. It won’t be easy. It won’t be genteel.

But if the government doesn’t submit to the diplomatic urge to be polite, it stands a chance of making matters better, for a change.

A Moral Distinction


Netanyahu reutrn knife That Stab Israel's back

Justin writes about the hypocrisy of America’s Left and the Obama Administration particular for siding with Hamas over our most trusted ally in the Middle East – the Jewish State of Israel.

*******************************

A Moral Distinction

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 8/9/2014 8:11 PM

 

To hear Obama, his administration and Secretary of State John Kerry say that they were “appalled” by the “disgraceful act” of the United Nations School in Gaza being bombed on August 3rd by Israeli Defense Forces, after the IDF warned residents in advance of this attack, shows Obama’s and Kerry’s willingness to distort and misrepresent the facts and the reality of the situation, as they exploit the peace process through their thinly veiled anti-Semitic positions, in a vile, dishonest and stupid manner. They are so anxious to achieve peace at any cost, that they make no moral distinction between Hamas and Israel, which, in and of itself, is unconscionable and shameful.

 

Yes, it was a terrible scene, the dead Palestinian children. And yet, rather than condemn the Hamas terror government for starting this conflict, for firing missiles from behind the U.N. School, for hiding stockpiles of weapons near schools, mosques and hospitals and for abducting and murdering three Israeli teenagers, John Kerry offered a cease-fire deal that heavily favored Hamas and did nothing to ensure Israel’s security, while Pierre Krahenbuhl, UN official, condemned Israel’s act of self-defense as a “serious violation of international law”.

 

What then were Hamas’ attacks on Israel? Aren’t Israeli lives just as precious as Palestinian lives? And, isn’t it time for the U.S. and the U.N. to remove Hamas from the Palestinian-Israeli equation permanently?

 

During WWII, the Free World, the U.S. and the Allies did not wring their hands over hundreds of thousands of civilians killed by the fire-bombs at Dresden and the nuclear weapons used on Japan, because they were struggling to survive against the onslaught of the extreme evil of fascism, just as Israel now struggles against the horrific evil of Islamofascism. Israel’s counterattacks are warranted, especially in light of Islamofascist death squads recently using tunnels to mount attacks inside Israel.

 

Although Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu states that Israel’s war is with Hamas and not the Palestinian people, it is hard to be too sympathetic towards a people who repeatedly elected Hamas and exiled the Palestinian Authority to the West Bank. The Palestinian people chose to stay in Gaza, because by and large they are in complete agreement with the Hamas charter that seeks Israel’s destruction. So, the problem is with the Palestinian people for giving power to Hamas, who are terrorists to the core.

 

Turki al-Faisal, former Intelligence Chief for Saudi Arabia, recently stated, “Hamas readiness to cause a great deal of suffering … clearly shows Hamas is irresponsible.”

 

As Prime Minister Netanyahu stated on August 6, 2014 (Fox News), “We’ve gone to extraordinary lengths to prevent civilian casualties. Hamas has gone to extraordinary lengths to cause civilian casualties. Imagine your home, your country targeted by death squads. What would you do?”

 

War crimes are being committed by Hamas. They tell their own people to stay in their homes and to die as martyrs for Jihad, so duplicitous video will show the “Palestinian suffering” at the hands of Israel. And all the while they bombard Israel; since June 2014, Hamas has fired approximately four to five thousand missiles into Israel, targeting civilians and military personnel indiscriminately.

 

In July Dov Hikind, Democratic Assemblyman from Brooklyn, stated on Fox News:

 

“They (the Hamas terrorists) are rejoicing because they put civilians as human shields. America condemns Israel and they are thrilled … I asked the President of the United States, stop this,”

 

On July 9, Hamas spokesman Mushir al-Masri said, “The blood of the shahids (martyrs) killed in this campaign is the fuel of our victory.”

 

Adding insult to injury, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter recently abandoned all morality and called for the U.S. to recognize Hamas as a legitimate political group and delivered more of his frequent anti-Semitic statements against Israel. One must wonder if Carter would also call Al Qaeda “a legitimate political group.”

 

Even more disturbing, the Obama administration is relying on Qatar, an ally of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, for guidance during this conflict between Israel and Hamas. Secretary of State John Kerry defers the “peace process” to supporters of terrorism, because he believes Qatar’s Foreign Minister Khaled al-Attiyeh will be able to bring the Hamas terrorist government to the negotiating table. Kerry seems to forget that Israel is the U.S.’s long standing ally by treaty, not Hamas; but, this is not unusual for this administration, which has a major Muslim Brotherhood presence in the White House inner circle that has regularly exposed national security information, according to retired General Tom McInerney.

 

Is it not surreal and shameful to hear the ‘New York Times’ call Kerry “a loyal friend to Israel?”

 

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict really does not have a comprehensive solution, because it is purely Israel’s existence as a sovereign Jewish state in the middle of all Islam that troubles these Sons of Allah, Hamas. And, in their quest to destroy Israel, these terrorists, who follow the same Pan-Islamist agenda as ISIS, Hezbollah and Al Qaeda, will always play the double-cross and keep their people in squalor, poverty and conflict, until they send them to their deaths as martyrs, to kill and die: Israel’s only option is to pursue a One State Solution, annex Gaza, eradicate Hamas and annex the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

 

I find it shameful that, in the name of world peace, Obama, Kerry, the U.N. and many Americans and Europeans absolve one side alone, Hamas, of its hate, and, in the name of pacifism, they lead the confused and uneducated back three-quarters of a century to the time of the yellow star on the coat. And I find it shameful to see those hypocritical progressives, such as Jimmy Carter and John Kerry, communists and pacifists nourish the rise of a new fascism, most grim and revolting, as Hamas leaders, such as Khalil al-Hayya, use $440 million in annual U.S. aid to buy missiles to kill Jews.

 

I see it, yes, and I stand with Israel. I stand with the Jews. I defend their right to defend themselves from being exterminated a second time. And disgusted by the anti-Semitism of many Americans, I am ashamed of this shame, the “president” and his administration that dishonors my Country.

Hamas Needs to Unconditionally Surrender or Face the Consequences


BHO-Kerry stab Netanyahu in back over Ceasefire

 

John R. Houk

© July 30, 2014

 

A transcript of a conversation between President Barack Hussein Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has crept into the public domain. In the transcript Obama is demanding – no a better description – commanding Netanyahu to unilaterally ceasefire against Hamas in the Israeli campaign to cripple the Islamic terrorist organization’s ability to send missiles and kidnapping terrorists into Israel.

 

As far as I know the White House staff is denying such a conversation had taken place between Obama and Netanyahu. Which is not surprising since Obama and is his Administration has been denying knowledge of wrong doing, scandals and corruption throughout most of his Administration. When Congress subpoenas the Executive Branch documents to find the truth Obama dictatorially claims Executive Privilege, stonewalls or outright refuses to comply with Congressional subpoenas. So I am completely convinced this conversation indeed took place between Obama and Netanyahu regardless of White House denials.

 

It is no secret that Obama has been strong arming Israel about settlements in Judea-Samaria and the Jewish presence in the eastern half of their capital city Jerusalem for years. With Obama’s overt siding with murderous terrorist organization Hamas and the Arabs in Gaza that call themselves Palestinians who support their Muslim terrorists, Obama is then telling the Western world it is okay to turn the screws on Israel to comply with indefensible borders by giving up more of their ancestral land to Jew-haters with the only goal of destroying Israel and killing Jews.

 

As callous as it may sound I have no problem with the so-called civilian casualties in Gaza. The Gazans are terrorists in training much like Americans may view historical militias that were from among American civilians to fight the aggression of invaders. These so-called Palestinians are as dedicated to the Hamas agenda of Jew-hatred, killing Jews and destroying Israel as is Hamas.

 

Here is the essence of European hypocrisy in demanding Israel stop its military expedition called Operation Protective Edge. (OPE Updates on Jerusalem Post):

 

The mantra of the Allies fighting in WWII was complete and unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany. The Americans, the Brits and the Russians had no problem with carpet bombing and shelling German cities into oblivion. Do you think there were civilian casualties? Placing Austria as a part of the German Nazi Third Reich the combined civilian deaths due to Allied military action was 3,890,000 during WWII.

 

A Few Pictures of Win at Any Cost by Allies against Germany

 

Dresden

 Dresden Germany WWII 2

 

Dresden

Dresden Germany WWII 4 

 

Berlin

Berlin Germany Reichstag WWII

 

 

Hamburg

 Hamburg Germany WWII

 

Linz

Linz Germany WWII 

 

Magdeburg

 Magdeburg Germany WWII

 

Kassel

 Kassel Factory WWII

 

You get the idea! If you want to end a war so that the enemy is so defanged that they cannot regroup to fight another day. Today Nazi Germany is not only gone but anything to do with the promotion of Nazism is illegal in Germany today.

 

In January 1943 the leaders of the principle Allies (who graciously included defanged Free France leadership) met in Casablanca to form the strategy to eradicate any future threats the Axis enemies:

 

At Casablanca, Roosevelt also announced that the Axis powers must surrender unconditionally to the Allies, announced without prior consultation with his British counterpart. “Peace can come to the world only by the total elimination of German and Japanese war power,” announced Roosevelt at the joint press conference ten days after this conference. “The elimination of Germany, Japanese, and Italian war power means the unconditional surrender by Germany, Italy, and Japan.” Churchill seconded by noting that “design, purpose, and unconquerable will [will be applied] to enforce unconditional surrender upon the criminals who have plunged the world into war.” (Bold Print by Editor; Casablanca Conference: 14 Jan 1943; Named Contributor – C. Peter Chen; World War II Data Base)

 

I believe Israel can join Sir Winston Churchill and declare pertaining to Hamas that the goal of IDF must be the “design, purpose, and unconquerable will (will be applied) to enforce unconditional surrender upon the criminals who have plunged the world into war.

 

To end Islamic terrorists from firing missiles into Israel and stop the coordinated planning of kidnapping IDF soldiers and innocent Jews with the threats of murder, Israel must exact the total eradication of the Hamas organization. If that means the Gaza civilians that support Hamas are casualties or even suffer deaths then so be it. Israel needs an unconditional surrender and NOT a truce or ceasefire that enables the Jew-haters to regroup and rearm.

Alleged Transcript Reveals Obama Tries To Bully Netanyahu; Sides With Hamas Terrorists

 

July 29, 2014

By Jennifer Burke

Tea Party News Network

 

An Israeli newspaper claims that Barack Obama had a tense phone call with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during which Obama took a hardline stance in favor of Hamas terrorists.

 

Reason.com reports on the transcript of the phone call that was released by The Times of Israel. As of this posting, the transcript has not been confirmed and the White House denies that such a conversation took place. However, Obama’s deafening silence to the rise of anti-Semitism in America and the $47 million of ‘humanitarian aid’ he authorized to be sent to the Hamas terrorist controlled Gaza strip, money many believe will be seized by the terrorists, will cause many to believe the possibility of this transcript being true.

 

Barack Obama: I demand that Israel agrees to an immediate, unilateral ceasefire and halt all offensive activities, in particular airstrikes.

 

Benjamin Netanyahu: And what will Israel receive in exchange for a ceasefire?

 

BO: I believe that Hamas will cease its rocket fire — silence will be met with silence.

 

BN: Hamas broke all five previous ceasefires. It’s a terrorist organization dedicated to the destruction of Israel.

 

BO: I repeat and expect Israel to stop all its military activities unilaterally. The pictures of destruction in Gaza distance the world from Israel’s position.

 

BN: Kerry’s proposal was completely unrealistic and gives Hamas military and diplomatic advantages.

 

BO: Within a week of the end of Israel’s military activities, Qatar and Turkey will begin negotiations with Hamas based on the 2012 understandings, including Israel’s commitment to removing the siege and restrictions on Gaza.

 

BN: Qatar and Turkey are the biggest supporters of Hamas. It’s impossible to rely on them to be fair mediators.

 

BO: I trust Qatar and Turkey. Israel is not in the position that it can choose its mediators.

 

BN: I protest because Hamas can continue to launch rockets and use tunnels for terror attacks –

 

BO: (interrupting Netanyahu) The ball’s in Israel’s court, and it must end all its military activities.

 

So, there you have it. Did Obama really a hardline with our closest ally in the Middle East, Israel, while he capitulated to Vladimir Putin, only sending him a ‘stern letter’ regarding Russia’s violation of an arms control treaty by firing missiles, and negotiated with terrorists in the release of five top Taliban leaders in exchange for deserter Bowe Bergdahl?

Dajjal’s comment is related (I believe) to the upper half of the post in which I was examining the reasons why I couldn’t locate Prime Minister Netanyahu’s smoking gun proof that Hamas was directly responsible for the kidnapping and execution of three Israeli teens; viz. Eyal Yifrah, Gilad Shaar, and Naftali Fraenkel. Of the three one of the teens had a dual American-Israeli citizenship. [If you are curious read the post.] In relation to my incredulity of not finding Netanyahu’s specific smoking gun proof I had castigated Google.  Dajjal commented to yours truly:

 

There are alternatives: Bing, Dog Pile and All The Web, to name a few. Do not be afraid to use them even though they depend on Google for part of their results.

 

You continue to fall into the name game trap, a most difficult habit to break.

 

Dajjal’s polite yet firm reminder about search engines is not the point I want you to notice. Rather, notice Dajjal’s point about the reason why Hamas is the way the Islamic terrorist organization is so recalcitrant in Jew-hatred and war.

 

(As a learning moment, Dajjal uses the word ahadith. This word with the letter “a” before it is the plural form for hadith. This plural form is proper in Islam-Arabic. Most of us English speaking dudes put the letter “s” at the end of hadith to make it plural. In Western culture the letter “a” preceding a word normally changes a positive meaning to a negative meaning. The learning moment is ended. J)

HAMAS is no different from Islam. Its demon is Islam’s demon. Its scripture is Islam’s scripture. Its objectives are Islam’s objectives. Its members are Muslims.

 

They do what they do because they believe in Allah, its imperatives, threat and promise. Turd, s**t, crap, scat & road apples are all feces. The substance is the same no matter the name.

 

They will quit doing it when they cease to believe or cease breathing, whichever comes first.

 

Death in the way of Allah is their highest aspiration. They seek Shaheed status [Islam’s version of martyrdom] as a guarantee of admission to Allah’s celestial bordello [aka Paradise]. Give it to them. Punch their tickets.

 

To understand the problem, read the following ayat and ahadith.

Peace or Muslims. Choose one; you cannot have both. Muslims cannot quit. If they do, Allah will cover them with a blanket of disgrace. If they do not go to war they will go to Hell. Jihad is their get out of Hell free card. They must play it, they have no choice. Israel must usher them into Hell; she has no choice.

Responding Comment to ‘What Palestinians?’


Palestinians Never Existed

Two comments by raginman to the NCCR post of “What Palestinians?

 

July 20, 2014 at 10:46 AM

Palestinians aren’t Arab.

 

July 20, 2014 at 10:46 AM

Palestinians aren’t Arab. Genetic testing shows they’re an amalgamated people who are culturally Arab. They were there before the British Mandate, otherwise there would have been no existing city of Jerusalem prior to the Mandate. Your writing of the history makes it seem as though no one lived in the current land of Israel prior to that point. Clearly that is not the case.

 

I appreciate your statement about the ethnicity of the people that call themselves Palestinians; nonetheless these people consider themselves as Arab and as you pointed out their culture is Arabic. Hence I will continue to call them “Arabs who call themselves Palestinians”.

 

Raginman of course there was a majority Muslim population prior to the existence of the Jewish State, BUT the population of indigenous Muslims descended from generations of centuries was very small. Only as Western technology emptied swamps and properly made the land fit for agriculture then did the Muslim population grow larger. Note the Western technology was largely initiated by Jewish immigrants from Europe willing to do the hard work that the land looked profitable for Muslims to emigrate from other Muslim regions as a land of opportunity. Proximity and Islamic Supremacism made Muslim culturally Arab people immigrate faster to the Holy Land than the Jews were able to their own Homeland.

The Myth of Jewish “Colonialism”: Demographics and Development in Palestine

 

By David Wollenberg

Spring 2001Issue 1

Harvard Israel Review

A Student Publication on Israeli History, Politics and History

 

One of the most powerful and widespread arguments against Zionism and the State of Israel has been the claim that Jewish settlement in Palestine led directly to the displacement and exploitation of the land’s long-established Arab population. In 1939, on the eve of the Holocaust and at the height of British attempts to divide the region into separate Arab and Jewish states, Jamal Husayni, spokesman for the effective government of Palestinian Arabs, forcefully raised this very argument against the Jewish national home:

 

Is it in any way just, that the Arabs, who have lived on this land uninterruptedly for 1300 years, and whose lives are rooted in its soil—should be dispossessed by force, should be pushed aside, and should be blackmailed to enable the Zionist Jews to fashion a Jewish National Home on this land? That’s the problem….1

 

This was also the claim made by five Arab states to justify war against the State of Israel in 1948, just one day after it had declared its independence. According to this view, Jews had been absent from the land of Israel for too long to claim their right to return. In their absence, another group of people had come to occupy the land, and thus the Zionist movement could succeed only at this people’s expense. The West, embarrassed by the horrors of the Holocaust, had founded the State of Israel to clear its conscience, and the Arab residents of Palestine were forced to pay the price. The creation of the Jewish State was thus an outrage, so the argument goes, because the very settlement of the land by Jews was illegitimate.

 

Yet this argument rests on an inaccurate description of the country’s history, namely, a mischaracterization of the demographics of Palestine before 1948. For a number of reasons, both political and environmental, the Arab population of Palestine had been in a constant state of flux for much of the region’s history. There was of course a small Arab population in Palestine that could trace its roots back for centuries. But overall, the Arab population, which had remained dormant for centuries, began to blossom only after the beginning of Jewish immigration and the subsequent improvements in economic conditions, infrastructure, and agricultural techniques. The idea of “uninterrupted settlement…rooted in its soil,” is thus inconsistent with history. It was put forward primarily in an attempt to delegitimize Jewish immigration.

 

This essay will explore the various reasons for the Arab population shifts over time, focusing mainly on the first half of the twentieth century. Such an examination demonstrates that Jewish settlement in Palestine did not amount to the sudden disruption that Husayni and others claim, since there was no continuous national history or uniform population to disrupt. It also suggests that Jewish settlement was in many ways beneficial to the land and all of its inhabitants. In this light, it is clear that the two main tenets of the myth of Jewish “colonialism”—that Zionism uprooted a long-established nation and led to its uniform exploitation—are ideologically motivated distortions.

 

Arab Demographics Prior to British Governance: Dramatic Underpopulation

 

From the period of the Crusades to the beginning of modern times, the population of Palestine remained at a near constant level.2This apparent stability is significant, as populations naturally tend to increase over time. It is estimated that there were 205,000 people living in Palestine in the mid 1500s.3By 1800, the population had only grown to 275,000, reflecting about a thousandth of a percent of average growth a year.4By 1890, still before any significant Jewish immigration, the population had made a slightly larger jump, to 532,000.5But even with this increase, the nineteenth century growth rate was still a small 0.7% per year.6By comparison, in the 1940s the Muslim growth rate in the Middle East was closer to 3.07%.7

 

A number of factors account for this dramatic underpopulation, one of which is environmental. Many people fled the area as early as the fourteenth century as a result of the Black Plague. Starting shortly thereafter, many areas became swamp-infested and malarial, especially in the northern valleys. There is much evidence to suggest that, by the mid-nineteenth century, the region had become nearly uninhabitable. Around this time, German Templars tried to settle the Kinrot Valley, where Jesus had lived, but were forced to leave due to the prevalence of malaria.8Jewish settlers in the 1880s attempted to inhabit the Hula valley, but in some places child mortality rates were nearly 100% because of disease.9The Talmud remarks, “If the Garden of Eden is in the Land of Israel, Beit-Shean is its gateway.”10But when the scholar H.B. Tristram visited the area in the 1860s, traveling in the footsteps of Jesus, he claimed, “We saw not a tree….It is scarcely conceivable how any human beings can inhabit such sites; but such is the contrast, nowhere more settling than here, between ancient civilization and modern degradation.”11 Mark Twain was disillusioned by his trip to the Holy Land. He wrote, “Palestine sits in sackcloth and ashes…desolate and unlovely…it is dreamland.”12Even by 1931, after many early Zionist efforts to clear the land, only a third of the whole region was cultivable.13No doubt, the lack of fertile land and presence of disease contributed to the comparatively limited population growth.

 

The higher growth rate of the nineteenth century (relative to the previous rates) must be attributed to a different set of conditions, namely major demographic shifts stemming from emigration and immigration. In 1831, Muhammad Ali of Egypt invaded the region to obtain raw materials and a market for his country’s industrializing economy.14As a result of the violence, many fellaheen, or farmers, fled Palestine to neighboring regions. Yet these emigres were soon replaced by a new wave of farmers from Egypt seeking to escape their country’s military draft.15According to the French scholar M. Sabry, the Egyptian governor Ibrahim Pasha brought over six thousand people to settle empty stretches of land in Palestine.16Although his leadership brought a greater sense of law and order to the land than ever before, the conquest precipitated a half-century of intertribal warfare, especially among the Bedouin.17The British decided that this instability threatened their economic interests in the region and forced Ibrahim to retreat to Egypt.18The net result of this upheaval was a positive but minor population increase. It would not be until the end of the century that modernizing developments would cause major demographic changes.

 

British Control: Population Shifts and the Beginnings of Growth

 

With British control during the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries came greater material stability and economic growth. As a result of the construction of railroad lines that led to the sea, the population of Haifa tripled and that of Jaffa more than doubled from 1880 to 1910.19But while the population shifted toward these areas, the overall growth rates for the country stayed low. According to British investigations, there were 689,275 persons in Palestine in 1915, about 590,000 of whom were Arab.20 Given a population in 1890 of 532,000 (473,000 Arab), this still represents only a 0.8% per year growth rate.

 

Soon afterwards, during World War I, the Ottomans tried to muster troops from the region, prompting many of the upper classes to flee. It appears that the war prompted a massive flight, immediately followed by a huge influx. According to contemporary surveys, the Arab population declined by 35,000 during the years 1915 to 1919. While many Arabs may have fled to escape the draft, others were expelled by force. To defend against the British, the Ottomans, still nominally in control, expelled both Jews and Arabs from cities across the coast on the assumption that their nationalistic intentions could lead them to sympathize with the British invaders. This effort was massive: twenty-eight thousand Arabs were forced out of Gaza alone.21By 1922, however, just three years later, the Arab population had increased by 80,000 above the 1919 level.22After the War had ended and Britain had taken formal control of the area (with the collapse of the Ottoman Empire), Arab population rates recovered quickly and significantly. Many Arabs took advantage of the improved economic conditions that resulted from British administration; and by 1922, the population of Haifa—which had declined by 30% from 1915 to 1917 due to Ottoman expulsions23—had become greater than it was before the war.24 The Zionists, also eager to take advantage of this economic growth, had hoped that the British government, the country’s largest employer, would hire Jews in construction. But the British preferred cheaper foreign labor; and in the period leading up to 1922 they employed fifteen thousand foreigners (mostly from Egypt and Syria) and only five hundred Jews.25Despite this low employment rate, however, the Jewish population continued to grow through immigration. The increasing numbers of these two populations would soon lead to a significant clash.

 

Approaching 1948: Economic Growth and the Population Burst

 

After years of relative stagnation, the few decades leading up to 1948 saw significant growth in both Arab and Jewish populations. Had the Arab population remained at its pre-WWI growth rate (0.8%) after 1922, one would have expected a population of approximately 785,000 by 1947. But there were in fact between 1.2 and 1.3 million Arabs in all of Palestine by 1947.26What could have caused this sudden burst?

 

To investigate possible causes, it is important to examine where in the country the growth took place. Non-Jewish population growth rates were highest within modern-day sovereign Israel and in the West Bank and Gaza Strip regions. These rates cannot be explained by higher birth rates alone.

 

One major factor accounting for the unexpected growth was the potential for upward mobility that existed in the western cities. The wages of western cities were more attractive, no doubt bringing many people from surrounding areas. Port cities also offered greater employment opportunities, which helps explain the fact that there was a dramatic influx into Haifa and Jaffa relative to cities like Beit-Shean and Jerusalem.

 

Another major reason for the population explosion was the revolution that took place in farming and thus in the ecosystem generally. Agriculture had been the main source of income of 90% of Muslims in 1931.29With the increase in Jewish immigration during this period, Arab farmers began to pressure the British to stop the Jewish influx, arguing that the land could not sustain any more inhabitants. The result was the Passfield White Paper of 1930, which claimed:

 

It can now be definitely stated that at the present time and with the present methods of Arab cultivation there remains no margin of land available for agricultural settlement by new immigrants, with the exception of such undeveloped land as the various Jewish agencies hold in reserve.30

 

Although this document would be repudiated only a year later, it reflects the widespread and strongly-held belief that the land’s resources could not be shared. Yet this belief was based on the assumption that the state of agriculture could not improve, an assumption that experience would soon prove false.

 

One major reason for this improvement was swamp drainage. The project, largely conceived and carried out by Jewish immigrants with some British help, was enormous in magnitude. It provided dramatic health benefits in addition to large increases in the amount of arable land.

 

Another development in farming took the form of improved agricultural techniques. Formerly, according to historian Kenneth Stein, “the cultivated land was not very fertile or sufficiently irrigated. The failure or inability to use modern agricultural techniques such as manuring and mechanization kept yields to a minimum. Crop rotation was rarely practiced.”32This would all change in a very short time.

 

Yet another reason for improvement was the growth of citriculture, the most profitable form of agriculture in the country.33From 1931 to 1937, land used for citriculture increased by almost 200%, with total citrus output rising 380%. During the same period, total wheat cultivation remained near constant, dropping about 4% in total area, but tripling in output. Arab agricultural techniques improved in other ways as well, resulting in increased production of produce, tobacco, watermelons, cattle, and fowl. With new farming techniques and more cultivable land, the naturally sustainable population increased exponentially.

 

Another Piece of the Puzzle: Property Ownership

 

One of the major obstacles faced by Jewish immigrants who tried to purchase land prior to 1948 was the unique system of property ownership established in much of the country. In 1932, 117,869 dunam of land was held by absentee landowners. In most cases, tenant farmers worked the land, creating a dilemma for land purchasers.34 Even after buying the land from the “real” owner, the tenant farmers would generally remain in place. In 1927, the British passed a law preventing the transfer of land without first securing new land for the tenant farmer or making a cash settlement.35Yet this had already been the policy of the Jewish Agency, which had explicitly sought to avoid controversy in its land purchases. The Shaw Commission reported:

 

We think that the Jewish Companies are not open to any criticism in respect of these transactions. In paying compensation, as they undoubtedly did, to many of the cultivators of land which they purchased in the Plain of Esdraelon [Jezreel Valley] those companies were making a payment which at the time of the transactions the law of Palestine did not require. Moreover, they were acting with the knowledge of the Government.36

 

Despite this careful attention to the tenant farmers’ reimbursement, Arab fellaheen often claimed that Jews had given them little or no compensation. In response, the British launched investigations into over 3000 claims, of which about 2500 were ultimately rejected.37For the 600 or so claims that were accepted, the Development Department was required to provide 60 dunam of irrigable land or a cash settlement that would presumably allow the farmer to move to a city.38 The immigration of Jews to Palestine was thus done both legally and ethically.

 

But the local Arab elite’s complaints about Jewish immigration were not about legality anyway. These leaders claimed that the presence of outsiders would destroy the Arab nature of the country, a claim that can still be heard among Palestinians and pro-Palestinian advocates today. Ironically, however, many of the strongest opponents of Jewish land purchases were also the people who profited most from them. A brief list of Arab leaders who sold land to Jews includes Fahmi el-Husayni, mayor of Gaza; Ragheb Nashashibi, mayor of Jerusalem and founder of the “National Defense Party”; Mussa el-‘Alami, Government Advocate of the Palestine Government and a member of the Arab Higher Committee; As’ad el-Shuqairi, father of Ahmed Shuqairi, the first chairman of the P.L.O.; and Jamal el-Husayni, who is quoted at the beginning of this essay.39 Of course, the Arab leadership attempted to suppress this information, but it was brought to public attention by Lewis French, the first director of the British Mandatory Government’s Department of Development.40The news of the Arab leadership’s hypocrisy eventually led to the collapse of the Arab Executive (the governing Arab body in the Mandate) in the early 1930s. It would not be until 1936 that another body of political leadership would come to exist, in the form of the Arab Higher Committee.41

 

Husayni’s claim of 1300 years of uninterrupted Arab presence in Palestine is clearly a convenient simplification. Any statements about the demographics of Palestine before 1948 must recognize the country’s dynamic history. The first half of the twentieth century was a period of sweeping changes for the land and all the people living on it—Arab and Jew. After remaining nearly stagnant for centuries, the population exploded in modern times due to improved infrastructure, agriculture, and immigration, both Jewish and Arab. As a result, from 1890 to 1947, in less than sixty years, the population grew from 532,000 to 1,845,560.42The Arab population of Palestine grew more from 1922 to 1947 than it had over the previous 400 years. But the population shift that would occur over the following three years, as a result of the U.N. partition plan and the Arab-Israeli war, would be so momentous that it almost makes this prior data seem irrelevant. Each side blames the other for the consequences of the war, including some who point to the war as proof of “Zionist aggression.” But even Benny Morris, the historian who argued that the Palestinian refugee problem was caused in part by Israeli military actions43points out that “the [refugee] problem was a direct consequence of the war that the Palestinians—and, in their wake, the surrounding Arab states—had launched.”44From the beginning, it was Arab intolerance of the Jewish presence that caused the widespread opposition to Israel, an intolerance that resulted in the war of 1948. Jews, of course, had not chosen arbitrarily to immigrate to this area of the world. Moreover, they did so legally and with positive effects. As evidenced by the massive growth in population, the improvement of agriculture, and increased wages, the claim against Jewish return to Palestine was not pragmatic but ideological. The idea of a Jewish State as such was, from the beginning, anathema to the Arabs living there, and they sought to discredit and defeat it by any means possible. It is in this context that the birth of the Arab-Israeli conflict must be considered.

The Myth of Jewish “Colonialism”: Demographics and Development in Palestine

From the Editors

 

This issue of the Harvard Israel Review represents the hard work of many students over several months. The individuals who produced this issue share a common concern for the deteriorated political situation and abhorrent violence in the Middle East. They also share the hope that, one-day, Israel, living beside its neighbors in peace and security, will empower Jews around the world by creating communal self-reliance and protecting Jews from anti-Semitism.

 

The West once viewed the idea of the Jewish State with this same hope. In the aftermath of the Holocaust, when the world learned the extent of the horror visited upon the Jewish people, Jewish empowerment became a moral imperative to those in the West. World leaders and intelligentsia, especially in Europe and America, felt that Jewish self-reliance through the creation of a Jewish State was the only way to prevent another Holocaust.

 

Today, this hope is a reality and READ THE REST

 

Wondering about Hamas Connection – Ari Bussel Thoughts Following


Negotiation with Hamas like Negotiation with Rabid Dog

John R. Houk

© July 20, 2014

 

While I was researching my last post – “Stand with Israel against Islamic Terrorists – Hamas” – I ran into a bothersome Google Search Engine situation. I was piecing together a very brief (and definitely not comprehensive) line of events that led Hamas to fire missiles at civilian targets in Israeli cities and the no-choice resulting Israel response of Operation Protective Edge led by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Now this is what I found bothersome: somewhere in this long overdue Gaza invasion to get rid of (or at least cripple) Hamas, Israel does not share the smoking gun data connecting the Islamic terrorists that murdered in cold blood Eyal Yifrah – 19, Gilad Shaar – 16, and Naftali Fraenkel – a 16-year-old with dual Israeli-American citizenship. One has to be a numbskull to believe that the murderers – Arabs that call themselves Palestinians acting as terrorists – had not executed these teen kids.

 

The problem I am having is this: Did these Islamic Jew-haters work for Hamas, one of the terrorist organization under the PLO umbrella (now Western legitimized as the Palestinian Authority – PA) or did the Jew-haters concoct the murders on their own to gain Palestinian prestige among their family and friends which are constantly brainwashed to hate Jews? So far in my Google Search Engine research I failed to find the absolute linkage to Hamas.

 

I have no doubt that Google is one of the moron organizations that treat Israel as occupiers of Arab land rather than defenders of the ancient Jewish Homeland bequeathed by God Almighty as the Promised Land. So I would not be surprised if Google techs have programed their search engine for such queries to make Hamas a victim and Israel a perpetrator.

 

Indeed, as of yesterday the top results of searches pointed to Palestinian apologists, Leftists and incredulously Left thinking Jews that have defined a conspiracy that Prime Minister Netanyahu or the IDF or both concocted a scheme to kidnap three Jews and hold them for a while as an excuse sweep the Hamas organization out of Judea-Samaria (labeled as occupied West Bank by Arabs and the West) and then invade Gaza as an excuse to eradicate Hamas from further executions of terrorist activities against Israel.

 

I was not surprised a lying fabrication from Palestinian apologists and Leftists because that is what these guys do to persuade sympathy from gullible readers of media reporting. I was incredulous though to see Jewish pundits reputed as either definitely Left Wing and Center-Left that usually are supportive of Israel’s right to exist, BUT are under the delusion that providing undeserved land to Arabs that call themselves Palestinians will bring peace between the Arab world and Israel.

 

At this point I grew weary of finding the wording that the Google Search engine would deliver in pointing out if the Israeli government had publicly delivered the smoking gun evidence that the Islamic terrorists that murdered the three Jewish teens was specifically Hamas. So I emailed pro-Israel journalist (and a person I consider an online friend) Ari Bussel if he could point me to any specifics.

 

Ari gave a detailed account of the information he knew. Surprisingly the Israeli government has not made the details public, but Ari reports that Prime Minister Netanyahu made the information available to the relevant Heads of government which I presume includes the USA.

 

Ari’s email is good enough to post for readers to have something to think about. So this is what I am going to do. I am going to post the email exchange between Ari and I. Ari Bussel emailed a CC of my question and his own response to various others. One of those replies was CC’ed to me and I am also including that. In full disclosure I am editing the exchange to refrain from exposing the email addresses involved. And at this point includes Ari’s email even though he often includes his email address in many of his submissions to my blog.

From John Houk to Ari Bussel

Subject: I have a question

 

Dear Mr. Bussel,

 

I am writing because I am having difficulty in pinning down a reliable answer pertaining to the murders of the three teen Israeli boys. Prime Minister Netanyahu says Hamas is responsible for the murders. This accusation is absolutely believable due to the nature of the Hamas Charter to destroy Israel and kill Jews. Unsurprisingly I have come upon numerous Palestinian apologists that claim Netanyahu and the IDF conspired to kill the three teenagers for an excuse to clear Judea-Samaria of Hamas operatives and to attack Gaza. What I am surprised about is that I am reading left leaning Jewish publications and left leaning Jews agree with the Hamas accusation.

 

So my question is: Has the Prime Minister made good on publicizing the definitive proof that Hamas was responsible for the heinous murders of three Israeli teens? Google isn’t cooperating for me in balanced searches.

 

Thanks in advance if you are able to respond.

Subject: RE I have a question

 

Dear John,

 

Allow to start with the following:  I have not seen the evidence, and I sent a request, asking if it is possible to receive detailed information (some may be classified still, given that the two kidnappers are still in hiding and have not been caught and brought to justice yet).

 

I would also like to add that the details are no longer relevant.  Why?  Because once a lie is told, and then repeated often enough, the seeds of doubt have been planted, and even a later correction, and factual evidence will not repair the damage caused.

 

A classic case in point may be the Goldstone Report.  Anyone remembers the correction by the Judge himself?  We all remember that the Report “proved” Israel is guilty.  (Guilty of what makes no difference whatsoever, nor do refutations, line by line, fact by fact, of what was contained therein.)

 

Richard Goldstone, of course, is a Jew.

 

A person with whom I swim every day at a local Jewish Community Center (that is open to all, not only “Jews” or “Whites”) has confronted me at the very start of the abduction of the three youths, Eyal, Naftali and Gil-Ad, HY”D (may the Lord avenge their deaths), suggesting at first they were in hiding then that the Israeli Security Service (Shin-Bet) is responsible for the abduction of the three from the bus stop that Thursday afternoon.

 

He further stated they were being held at the cellars of the Shin-Bet somewhere, still alive, but did not rule out we will kill them to put the blame unto others (i.e. the “Palestinians”).

 

All this while telling me, as I was leaving in disgust, he is saying Psalms for the three boys (a common manner of praying for Jewish people). 

 

I turned around, shocked, and asked:  Why do you bother? 

 

Incidentally, the story changed as the days went by.  The boys were in hiding.  They were taken by Israel.  Etc.  All these horrible things, and yet the (meaningless) “prayer” continued.  My friend does not understand that having such ideas cannot be reconciled with being a Jewish person, one who believes in God the Almighty.

 

My fellow-swimmer is a professor, specializes in demography, writes regularly and is otherwise both a respected and known member of the Jewish community in Los Angeles.  His opinion, as “off the wall” as it may sound to some, reflects the prevailing thought of many of the Old Guard of the local American Jewry.  He is not an extremist by any measure.  He is intelligent and interesting.  And he is a reflection of our worst enemies from within.

 

In many ways, their thinking is not much different than that of Turkey’s Prime Minister.

 

Prime Minister Netanyahu presented evidence of the Hamas connection of the two kidnappers (still at large) to different heads of state around the world.

 

For many years, Hamas has been promoting the kidnapping of Israeli soldiers and Israeli citizens.  It is a protocol that has worked very well for both Hamas and Hizbollah.  It was in the summer of 2006 that Hizbollah went over the border to Israel proper, attacked an IDF patrol and kidnapped Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser, HY”D.

 

[Blog Editor: I plead a learning moment. I had no idea of the meaning for ‘HY”D’. Here is the explanation for the non-Jews who love Israel:

 

May Hashem avenge his/her blood

 

This honorific “May Hashem avenge his/her blood” is used for a non-rabbinic general individual who perished as a result of anti-semitism, for example pogroms or the Holocaust. The Hebrew version is “Hashem yinkom damo” (m.) / “Hashem yinkom dama” (f.) and in the Hebrew: (f.) “ינקום דמה” \ (m.) “השם ינקום דמו.” The English abbreviation is “HY”D” and in Hebrew “הי״ד.”

 

Hashem

 

(Judaism) a periphrastic way of referring to God in contexts other than prayer, scriptural reading etc. because the name itself is considered too holy for such use]

 

That prompted what would later be called “The Second War in Lebanon.”  Israel received their body parts back in exchange to more than 200 terrorists.

 

Not two weeks later, Hamas, promoting the very same tactic publicly and following exactly the same manner as Hizbollah, went into Israel (via a tunnel), attacked an army base and kidnapped an Israeli soldier. 

 

That soldier was kept in a high rise building in Gaza for five years and was exchanged for more than a thousand terrorists, many who were convicted in a court of law for multiple life sentences.

 

There were other failed attempts to kidnap Israelis.  Until last month, when three Israeli boys, standing at a bus stop on their way home for the weekend, disappeared.  It took Israel several long hours until the process known as Hannibal Directive/Procedure [Wikipedia] was launched.  By that time, it was too late. 

 

Was that a red line?  Kids being kidnapped? 

 

Some excused it by saying they are “religious fanatics.”  Other said they are “Settlers” and should not even have been there (“there” is Judea and Samaria).  Easier to blame ourselves apparently for the sickness of our enemies.

 

The following day, the identity of the two kidnappers was made public by Israel and the necessary evidence was presented by PM Netanyahu to his counterparts among world leaders.

 

For eighteen days Israel, the Jewish People and people who believe in the Bible were praying to the Almighty for the safe return of the three boys.  The IDF and Israeli security services were on a search and rescue mission, leaving no stone and bush unturned.  

 

On the eighteenth day, the bodies of 16 year olds Gil-Ad and Naftali and 19 year old Eyal were discovered. 

 

Their only sin:  Being Jewish in the Jewish Homeland. 

 

(Well, that is a double sin.)

 

Celebrations erupted throughout the “Palestinian” cities and towns.

 

After all, the mother of one of the three kidnappers had stated before she raised her kids on the Quran and the Prophet, then she added, that if it turned out her son did kidnap (and/or murder) the Jews, he will be blessed and she could not be happier.  (Incidentally, she will receive money for the rest of her life as a result of the atrocity committed by her son.)

 

Theirs is a culture of death.  They glorify murder.  Thus, it is not surprising they name kindergartens, school yards, soccer fields, city squares and public institutions after such murderers.

 

The discovery was followed by a very somber day of mourning in Israel, and the three were brought to their final resting place. 

 

Israel stood in shock.

 

Sane and reasonable people everywhere were silenced at the horror of what took place.

 

Israelis stood in unity, for we are all commanded DO NOT MURDER.

 

It was at the same time that three Israelis did exactly that, violating the very commandment of the ten that guide our lives.

 

The difference could not be clearer.  They were apprehended and immediately brought to justice.  They likely will not be allowed back among civilized society for the rest of their lives (for Israel does not have a death penalty).

 

We abhor and will do everything against anyone who finds murder a reasonable and necessary course of action.  Revenge is not an excuse to capture a 16 year old and set him on fire while he is still alive.

 

And that is exactly the difference between Israel and her enemies.

 

I now return to the question you posed, albeit from a slightly larger context. 

 

Tell a lie often enough, and one starts believing in it.

 

Our greatest enemy is confusion, and see how easy it is to plant the seeds of doubt:

 

Maybe the Israelis kidnapped the three boys?

 

The Israelis will stop at nothing, as long as it serves their purpose.

 

The greater good – the ability to subjugate the local population to invasion, torture, persecution, etc. – is justified.  Sacrificing three boys is a very small price to pay.

 

Israeli Settlers are extremist ideologists.  They will follow the dictum of the Torah to sacrifice their own sons!

 

All that Israel wanted is an excuse to invade Gaza.

 

Israel is no different from the Nazis!

 

I must admit, it is very difficult to fight when surrounded with absolute darkness.

 

Nothing makes sense. 

 

Israel does not need ruses or excuses.  All that Israel tries to do is live peacefully in the only Jewish country in the world, its Biblical and eternal homeland.  We are not raised to hate Arabs because they are Muslim.  We want to live in peace with our neighbors.  In fact, our Torah directs us time and time again to remember we were a foreign people in Egypt, thus, we must treat the foreigner, widowed and orphaned among us with extreme care.

 

Israel does not kidnap and torture its own citizens, be they Jewish, Muslim or otherwise.  For that there are numerous human rights organizations and an Israeli Supreme Court that see that even “torture” designed to obtain information to thwart activities such as terrorist attacks is done within a certain framework.

 

In Israel, incidentally, there can be no secrets.  Now more than ever before, everything is public knowledge.  I have long advocated that even field security within the IDF needs to be strengthened, since everything is available on-line or on the radio or tv.

 

A secret such as this (“Israel kidnaps, tortures and murders its own youths in order to fight Hamas”) is too big to hide.  Surely someone, on some moral, ethical or other grounds go public with it.

 

Israel does not need excuses to conquer Gaza and eliminate Hamas.  Hamas has vouched to destroy Israel, and has been actively pursuing this goal.  Israel must fight Hamas with all her might, although for too long she did not do so.

 

We can go on and analyze each and every statement above (italicized), and others like it, and soon we will get to the conclusion that they are all a mirror reflection of the enemy.

 

It is the enemy who regularly sends its women and children and young men to act as human bombs.

 

It is the enemy who uses civilians as human shields.

 

It is Hamas that sits in bunkers underneath hospitals, kindergartens, schools and mosques.  (Fatah terrorists are those who, likewise, ran into the Church of Nativity in Bethlehem, defiled and desecrated the place knowing Israel will not dare touch a holy place.)

 

It is Hamas that fires hundreds of rockets a day directly at civilian populations, in order to kill, maim and instill fear and terror in the hearts and minds of as many Israelis as possible.

 

Israel’s enemies, including Hamas and Fatah and the other tribes that constitute modern day “Palestinians,” regularly advocate the abduction and killing of Israelis.

 

In short, all these statements are an exact description of what is commonplace within our enemies.

 

So the question to be asked is not the minutia, rather the truth.

 

How does one separate truth from fiction, reality from a thousand and one Arabian fantasies?

 

My colleague and partner, award-winning investigative journalist and author Norma Zager and I have recently embarked on a series called “How not to be Conned.”  It is part of our “Conversations Eye to Eye” on Christian radio on the Crawford Broadcasting network of 23 stations across the USA.

 

I will send you a powerpoint of the presentation we recently gave at a local church on the same topic. 

 

I am also including a segment on Christian TV with a friend of mine from Israel, Prof. Abraham Sion of Ariel University (in those “Occupied-Occupied Territories,” otherwise known as Judea and Samaria; double-Occupied since all of Israel is “Occupied”).

 

Fighting Israel with Hitler’s Weapons:

http://www.heaventv7.com/vod/player/?program=35211

Also, I am forwarding an e-mail from a blogger in Israel.  (Appended here below.)  It also discusses exactly the same matter.

 

You see, you raised a most important question.  Not the actual proof (that exists, but it will make little difference in terms of the lies being floated around), rather how to separate truth from fiction, how to know if something is true or not.

 

Whether by Israeli enemies or self-haters, our job turns to be most challenging.  We are thinking individuals, and we are easily confused.  Likely because we hear the lies time and again.  Many times the lies come from “reliable” sources (“I am a Jew” or “I am Israeli” or “I served in the IDF” or “I am a son of Holocaust survivors” or from organizations with like names “Pro-Israel, Pro-Peace,” “Jews for Peace,” …).

 

We are not sure any more what is truth and what is a lie.  What is good and what is bad.

 

Thus, Norma and I always start and end as follows:

 

What you need is a benchmark.  It can be God.  It can be the Bible.  It can be your children.  Or your spouse.  It has to be something that for you is the absolute truth.

 

When something then does not make sense, for instance, when you are told it is dark now, yet you look and the sun is at a zenith and your watch shows 1PM, pinch yourself.

 

Check what you are told (“it is dark outside” or “Israel kidnapped and murdered the three kids”) against that is most dear to your heart.  God.  The Bible.  Your children.  Your spouse.

 

And then you will know the answer.  Deep in your heart.  In your mind.  In all your senses.

 

The fight is difficult, the confusion easily gaining the upper hand.  Thus we must stand ready, knowing our path is right, believing with all our might and putting all our trust as we are like blind persons or a busy highway, a tiny light engulfed in dense darkness.

 

There is no doubt we will prevail, but the fight is not easy.

 

It was on July 3rd at the presentation we gave at a local church that I realized that the “Benchmark” or “One’s Absolute Truth” slide was very simple:  At a Church, The Truth is Jesus, a Jewish Rabbi.

 

So compare the doubts and the statements by Jewish-self-haters and other enemies of the People of the Bible (i.e. us, the Saturday and the Sunday People) to what Jesus has said, and you will have the answer and the proof.

 

You asked a seemingly “simple question” and clearly did not expect such an answer.

 

Yet, you managed, as you often do with your preface for every posting of ours, to raise awareness, to focus the attention to bring about truths that need to see the light of day, be read and discussed.

 

For that – as always – I thank you.

 

I took the liberty to add a few people to this e-mail, among them:  my colleague, Norma Zager, Pastor Lorraine Coconato in whose Church we gave the most recent talk, Leehy Shaer, the aunt of Gil-Ad HY”D (one of the three kidnapped and murdered youths) who lives in LA, Prof. Abraham Sion of those Occupied-Occupied areas of Zion Jerusalem, Dr. Daryl Temkin, who taught me how easy it is to float a lie and how difficult it is to combat the aftermath, and my friend Danny Seaman from Jerusalem, who for ten years headed the Government Press Office in Israel.  There is no better person that him among us – the soldiers on the front line, the guards on Israel’s walls.

 

“For Zion’s sake I will not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest.”  (Isaiah 62:1)

Subject: RE I have a question

 

Actually Mr. Bussel I did expect such a passionate email response. It is one reason I emailed you. I knew you would give me an honest answer that is also pro-Israel. I need to take some time to digest the entire email including attachments. With that in mind may I have your permission to post your email response? And I also welcome the input of anyone else you sent an email to.

 

Thanks for your time and love of Israel,

 

John

Dear John,

 

With thanks.  Please feel free to extract segments and/or use as you see fit.  There is plenty of information therein.

 

I do expect an answer, as the Consul General of Israel for the Western Region (USA) was blind copied on this e-mail and promised a reply.

 

This said, I am trying to put as little pressure on him as possible, given the current situation and his on-going responsibilities as the highest ranking Israeli representative for the West Coast.

 

Sunday morning we will be at a Church where he will be speaking. 

 

Always,

 

Ari Bussel

Dear Ari,

 

Thank you for copying me on your informative article to John, and I would like to add the following:

 

The Palestinian Arabs have adopted and mastered Nazi propaganda. Goebbels could have learned some tricks from them. They use the same narrative, same cartoons and same repetition of lies and falsehoods, blaming the Jews for almost all world evils. Just to give one example: When Germany decided to invade Poland on the eve of WW2, it came up with a false story that Polish guards at the border between Poland and Germany killed German soldiers. The fact was that German troops killed some fellow German soldiers and blamed the killing on the Poles as a pretext to invade Poland. See how similar Arab propaganda is.

 

Also, in no Arab country one can find a constitution safeguarding civil rights. In no Arab country, including areas governed by the Palestinian Authority, no Jew can live or have any rights. Yet the Palestinian Arabs blame Israel falsely for all the evils that exist in their own countries and territories. They work around the clock to discredit Israel, but unfortunately, Israel is hardly engaging in any way in refuting those allegations. The outcome is that if the Arabs repeat an allegation one thousand times and there is no one on the other side who bothers to refute them, they are then, in the minds of many people, regarded as facts.  The worst of those who engage in discrediting Israel are often anti Semite Jews.

 

Best

Abraham

I am very grateful to Ari Bussel and the later email by Abraham Sion for their input regarding Palestinian apologist and Left Wing propaganda that wrongfully implicates Israel as perpetually at fault for all acts of violence against Israel and the nation’s Jewish citizens.
