Putting the Pieces Together

No peace can ever be made with a nation whose single driving need, surpassing even the value of life itself, is to destroy Israel.” [A Peace Proposal, by Lisa Liel, Nov.20, 2023- Jewish Press]

From Jeffrey Goldberg, national correspondent for The Atlantic on February, 2009:

“The only small chance for peace today is the same chance that existed before the Gaza invasion: The moderate Arab states, Europe, the United States and, mainly, Israel, must help Hamas’s enemy, Fatah, prepare the West Bank, for real freedom, and then hope that the people of Gaza, vast numbers of whom are unsympathetic to Hamas, see the West Bank as an alternative. “The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything”. [Professor Albert Einstein]

“No peace can ever be made with a nation whose single driving need, surpassing even the value of life itself tive to the squalid vision of Hassan Nasrallah and Nizar Rayyan—“

What was the purpose in a war against terrorists in order to restore power to other terrorists whose goal remained Israel’s destruction? Moshe Sharon, Mordechai Nissan, Raphael Israeli, Moshe Gil, Gisele Bat’Ye’or, Andrew Bostom and Saul S. Friedman had meticulously documented centuries of Arab/Islamic hatred of Jews and the stated Arab goal of removing every Jew from Palestine from the time of the Arab conquests.

If one followed the Oslo road map, the outcome would be another Gaza in Judea, Samaria and the Golan. Giving the enemy high ground where a telescope had all Israel’s cities and towns in target range would have been crazy.

Enter Mahmoud Abbas /Abu Mazen/terrorist, holocaust denier/Arafat in a suit. Setting all myths aside, one has to acknowledge the real enemy of the Jews and all non Muslims is Jihad. Looking at Turkey in 2009, long the poster nation for Muslim moderation and democracy where Sharia [and the most vicious anti-Semitism] has reared its ugly head. To learn how Iran a secular and progressive nation became Ayatollaland, one has only to read V. S. Naipaul.

On January 9, 2009, the New York Times reported on what was said at Al-Azhar University in Cairo, the locus of Islamic Law and faith, by Eid Abdel Hamid Youssef, the government appointed preacher

“Muslim brothers, G-d have inflicted the Muslim nation with a people whom G-d has become angry at and whom he made monkeys and pigs out of them. They killed prophets and messengers and sowed corruption on earth. They are the most evil on Earth.”
On Nov.30, 2003, JNS published, “PA President Abbas says Israel Cannot Claim Self-Defense”. It commences with, “Washington credits Abbas and the P.A. for ‘calm’ in Judea and Samaria despite vicious terror attacks in the Jordan Valley and Jerusalem on Thursday alone.”

Israel is carrying out a “genocide” and “cannot claim the right to self-defense’ PA Authority Chief Mahmoud Abbas claimed in a statement issued on Wednesday, as a Biden official credited Ramallah for keeping the “relative calm” in Judea and Samaria.

“The war of genocide carried out by the Israeli occupying war machine is not self-defense—-whoever commits the crime of aggression and occupation of the land of others cannot claim the right to self-defense” said Abbas, according to the P.A.’s official lWafa news agency.

Moving onto 2009, when Michael B. Oren was appointed Ambassador of Israel to the United States. In 2015, his book, “Ally” was published and covered a period which has largely impacted our lives today
In the early pages David Axelrod, Senior Advisor to President Obama provides an introduction to the maestro, “Since his 1st day in office, Obama contemplated making a statement that transformed America’s relation s with Islam. The Cairo speech was indeed revolutionary. —To an unrivaled extent, Obama identified American interests with the Palestinians. And for the 1st time, America recognized Iran’s right to peaceful nuclear power.”

From the Cairo speech:

“The United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements. This construction violates previous agreements and undermines efforts to achieve peace. It is time for these settlements to stop.”

“It was ‘undeniable that the Palestinian people –- Muslims and Christians—have suffered in pursuit of a homeland. For more than 60 years, they’ve endured the pain of dislocation. Many wait in refugee camps in the West Bank, Gaza and neighboring lands for a life of peace and security that they have never been able to lead. They endure the daily humiliations —large and small—that come with occupation.”

“And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”

“The second major source of tension that we need to discuss is the situation between Israelis, Palestinians and the Arab world. On the other hand, it is also undeniable that the Palestinian people — Muslims and Christians — has suffered in pursuit of a homeland. For more than 60 years they’ve endured the pain of dislocation.”

“The United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements. At the same time, Israelis must acknowledge that just as Israel’s right to exist cannot be denied, neither can

“—the continuing humanitarian crisis in Gaza does not serve Israel’s security; neither does the continuing lack of opportunity in the West Bank. Progress in the daily lives of the Palestinian people must be a critical part of a road to peace, and Israel must take concrete steps to enable such progress.”

Is there any greater proof of Obama’s prejudice?

VP Joe Biden is hardly mentioned in Ally. From the Jewish Press of Nov, 21, 2023:

We must keep pursuing peace. We must keep pursuing a path so that Israel and the Palestinian people can both live safely, in security, in dignity, and in peace. For me, that means a “two-state solution,” Biden lectured Israelis during his visit.
From the Christian Science Monitor of Sep. 27, 2012:

When President Obama took office in 2009, his administration called for a full settlement freeze. But in an incident widely seen as Israel thumbing its nose at that demand, Israeli officials announced approval for 1,600 new homes in East Jerusalem during a visit by Vice President Joe Biden in March 2010.

From Israel National News, Dec.20, 2022-“Jewish History Matters”: Debunking the Suicidal “two-side solution” in the heartland of Israel”, Rachel Neuwirth’s superb Op-Ed.

Those countries who in contemporary times talk about a “two-state solution” did not even exist when King David ruled a Jewish nation from Jerusalem. The Jewish people’s rights to the land of Israel by Salomon Benzimra make an irrefutable case based on history and law.

After WW11, it became unfashionable to be overtly anti-Semetic. —The Palestinian Arab cause generated countless supporters even under the Jewish Left.—-Israel and its supporters must be able to fully expose the lies and hypocrisy of their critics while asserting the full rights of the sovereign Jewish nation.

We learn from the book, “The Secret War Against the Jews how Western Espionage Betrayed the Jewish People.” From the early days of Zionism through 2022 [except for 4 years under President Trump] US foreign policy has placed a higher value on Arab oil than on Jewish blood.

The Roosevelt’s Administration Betrayal. In 1939, Roosevelt convened a meeting of western governments in Evian France to address the issue of Jewish refugees trying to flee Nazi Germany. FDR’s representative at that meeting announced at the start, that the US would not take in any Jews fleeing Germany. Within one year, in 1939, Hitler allowed the S.S. St. Lewis to sail from Germany with some 900 Jews aboard.
A Historic Pattern of Anti-Semitism. Today Iran, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Palestinians and others attack physically while the media, money and political support operate to justify attacks on Israel, condemn Israeli responses and paint Israel as a perpetual aggressor.

In2014, Hamas in Gaza launched thousands of missiles towards Israel to kill Jewish civilians. President Obama did nothing to oppose that attack.—-Senator Ted Cruz alone acted to pressure Obama to cease his treachery against Israel. Not one Jewish senator acted to follow Senator Cruz while Jews in the House remained silent.
Is the Biden Administration enabling the PA’s ‘pay for slay’? It is a form of active warfare against Israel by Joe Biden and must be exposed as such.

Israel was founded over 3,000 years ago on about 10,000 square miles of land. How is it that 56 Muslim countries with millions of square miles of land cannot find any space at all for their ‘Palestinian’ relatives?

Beware of the Jewish Left in Israel and the Diaspora. From the beginning of the Zionist movement there were Jews who actively opposed the Zionist idea. Today groups like J Street, Jewish Voice for Peace, and other Jewish Leftist groups who continue their support for a ‘Palestinian’ state.

Much earlier, in 2004, Rachel Neuwirth authored yet another outstanding original work published by Think-Israel entitled “A Win-Win Solution to the Arab-Israel Conflict”.
