From IMPEACH – Eliminate “IM” & “H” = Include “E” = PEACE
As 2020 begins, terror attacks against Jews seem to be intensifying.
Congress is on holiday break, and has been in recess so lawmakers can enjoy this time with their families.
But, unfortunately, attacks targeting US Jews have not stopped. Jews all over the US have become more aware of the possibility that a similar attack that took place in Monsey may happen in their neighborhood as well.
The Democrats have now passed the first stage of Impeachment in the House, and this will continue in the Senate after the holidays. However, with the decision to Impeach the President, the Democrats have sent out a very strong message that we all must not ignore.
The Democratic Party Today And Its Support For Israel Compared To Previous Years
The Democrats have traditionally been a strong Israel supporter. HHH, JFK and many other leading Democratic lawmakers, before and after them, along with the majority of Democratic Senators and Congressmen have always been on Israel’s side with many of the tough issues it has faced as the only real democracy in the Middle East.
When President Trump entered office, it seemed that suddenly a new and stronger wave of support for Israel was now coming from the Republican Party rather than the Democrats.
And the Democratic “squad” members who openly attack Israel only made things worse for the Democratic Party and its Jewish members, as well as those non-Jewish Democratic members who have traditionally supported Israel.
The Fatah And Hamas Parties Today And Their Views On Israel Compared To Previous Years
In TOI, this past week, an article appeared with the following headline-
Key points to the article are as follows-
Hundreds of Palestinians march through the West Bank city of Ramallah to mark the 55th anniversary of the Fatah movement led by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
Established by Yasser Arafat in 1965, Fatah led the Palestinian struggle against Israel for decades as the main component of the Palestine Liberation Organization, orchestrating a number of the 20th century’s most notorious terrorist attacks. A Fatah-led PLO then signed the Oslo peace agreements with Israel in the 1990s and became the dominant force in the newly-established Palestinian Authority.
Around a dozen masked men lead the march through Ramallah, firing several rounds of gunfire into the air. Similar marches are planned elsewhere in the West Bank in the coming days.
Hamas, as its name (Islamic Resistance Movement) implies, aims to liberate Palestine from the Israeli occupation by resisting it. And according to Hamas armed branch Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades:
To contribute in the effort of liberating Palestine and restoring the rights of the Palestinian people under the sacred Islamic teachings of the Holy Quran, the Sunnah (traditions) of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and the traditions of Muslims rulers and scholars noted for their piety and dedication.
Al-Qassam Brigades aims to liberate all of Palestine from what they describe as Zionist occupation, and to achieve the rights of the Palestinian people that were robbed by the occupation, and it consider itself part of the movement of a project of national liberation.
The foundational document, the Hamas Charter (mīthāq ḥarakat), is dated August 18, 1988, and contains both antisemitic passages, characterizations of Israeli society as Nazi-like in its cruelty, and irredentist claims that have never been revoked.
The Banned Israeli Trip And Miftah
In an August 18 TOI article the following key points were made-
“Several days ago, we received [Omar and Tlaib’s] trip itinerary,” Netanyahu said in a statement, “which clarified that they planned a visit whose sole purpose was to support boycotts and deny Israel’s legitimacy. For example, they called their destination ‘Palestine’ and not ‘Israel,’ and unlike all Democratic and Republican members of Congress before them, they did not seek any meeting with any Israeli official, whether government or opposition.
“The itinerary of the two congresswomen reveals that their sole purpose is to harm Israel and increase incitement against it. In addition, the organization that is funding their trip is Miftah, which is an avid supporter of BDS, and among whose members are those who have expressed support for terrorism against Israel,” Netanyahu said.
Tlaib then submitted a letter requesting to be allowed in despite the ban, citing her elderly grandmother, and promised not to promote boycotting Israel during her visit. The request was approved by Interior Minister Aryeh Deri on humanitarian grounds, but Tlaib later said she had decided not go under “humiliating terms.”
I have previously pointed out that Miftah founder Hanan Ashrawi was a strong supporter of PLO founder Yasser Arafat.
And the humiliating terms Tlaib was referring were never explained and therefore her refusal to go after her request was approved shows how much interest Tlaib has for her grandmother over her willingness to put Israel in a bad position. Unfortunately for Tlaib everyone saw through her tactics and paid little attention to her complaint.
In summary, it is clear to see that Hamas and Fatah continue to hold the same views about Israel today, than they have since their founding. And the TOI article related to Fatah’s 55th anniversary points out that Fatah celebrates such days, not with good food and drinks, but with masked men firing several rounds of gunfire into the air.
Supporters of Hamas and Fatah most definitely do not want peace with Israel, and the Squad members in Congress are the prime example. Besides, why would anyone want to negotiate peace with black hooded, gun carrying terrorists?
Now let’s take a deeper look at the above formula appearing in the title of this Blog.
Impeach Turns Into Peace
Eliminate “IM” – “IM” are the first two letters for the word “IMpossible”
In other words, it is going to be impossible for the Democrats to succeed in achieving Peace in their own party, and past Jewish supporters who love Israel, will continue to switch to the GOP.
Eliminate “H” – “H” is the first letter standing for both Hamas and Hate
In other words, as long as the Democrats support those Congresswomen who hold on to the values of Terrorist Organizations such as Hamas and also continue to support Hate toward Israel and its people then the Democrats will most likely struggle at the polls.
Include “E” – “E” is a letter when tipped on its side with the spikes pointing up looks like the Hebrew letter of Shin, the first letter for the Hebrew word Shalom meaning Hello Goodbye and Peace.
Taking all of the above together, we now have the word PEACE.
And looking at what has taken place over the past year in the Democratic Party, there most definitely has been a shift away from values such as Human Rights and its support for Israel.
The Democrats were always considered the party that Jews would vote for but with the entrance of the squad, that has changed dramatically.
The only way the Democrats have any hope of recovering from this would be to weed out those Democratic lawmakers who are responsible for this drastic shift in support for Human Rights and Israel, and the squad would be the perfect place to start.
If no action continues to be taken by the Democrats then by allowing those squad members who talk against Jews, Israel and America to stay in their seats, this will hurt the party to such an extent that it may never recover.
Hamas, Fatah and Miftah continue to support the destruction of Israel and its people, and with the Democrats now being influenced by those squad members who think the same, there is only one solution to this problem – to restore the values that the Democrats always had and show the door to any Democrats who support the views of those squad members, including the squad members themselves.
American Jewry felt much safer before the arrival of the squad members in Congress.
Let’s hope Congress gets the message before it’s too late.
