The Neosecularist

I Said That? Yeah, I Said That!

Archive for the tag “Israel”

Thank You, James Zogby! (For Your Patently Biased, Offensive And Stupid Observation About President Romney)

To paraphrase – with one factually wrong, decidedly insensitive, and patently biased comment, Arab American Institute President, James Zogby, and liberal aspirant, is doing more to focus attention away from the devastating impact Palestinian culture has had on the Palestinian economy and its own people for well over two decades, the result of which (should Zogby’s despicable propaganda mesmerize the masses of Palestinians he caters to) can only stymie development in that region for more decades to come.

James Zogby, being of Arab descent, (his father came to America illegally, from Lebanon, and Zogby was born in New York) and having a liberal mindset, and bias against Israel, (probably a personal hatred too), and writing for the “Arianna Nation” severely scolds soon to be President Romney for his “patently bias comment” he made about Palestinian culture, which was neither patently biased nor anywhere near off the mark.  In fact, when Romney blamed Palestinian culture for its own economic woes, Romney hit a grand slam.  Zogby, conversely, in his pathetic diatribe, struck out.

Says Zogby:

Romney’s observation that “culture makes all the difference,” which he offered as his explanation for the disparities between the Israeli and Palestinian economies, was so remarkably out of touch with reality that it set off an unprecedented explosion of press commentary in the United States and Europe.”

Since Palestinian culture only lives to destroy Israel, and since Palestinian terrorists have had, and continue to have a long history of hostility and violence against Israel; since its own faux government, whether that be Hamas or the PLO, both openly supports terrorist activities against Israel and Israeli citizens; since there is no real Palestinian nation, but a mere collection of people living in and around Israel, who identify themselves as Palestinians; since these people who call themselves Palestinians are wont to kill all Jews and overtake Jerusalem and all of Israel distinctly because of their culture and their cultural upbringing, what Romney said about Palestinian culture was right – and Zogby knows it!

Zogby speaks of  “an unprecedented explosion of press commentary in the United States and Europe.”  Well, to be exact, Romney’s “observation” set off an avalanche, “explosion” of hate-filled criticism throughout the liberal Main Stream Media (MSM) in America and around the world.  Who is surprised by that?  Who is baffled that liberals in America and around the world, most of whom also hate Jews and Israel, would condemn Romney for pointing out an obvious fact and truth about a deviant, childish, malevolent and very violent culture such as that of the Palestinians?

Most of the United States’s (sic) major daily newspapers featured articles, commentary and even editorials taking issue with the Romney quote — highlighting repressive Israeli policies, and not an “inferior culture” as the reason for the poor performance of the Palestinian economy.”

Well, duh!  It’s only the liberal media “taking issue”.  Of course, to the liberal media, the very thought of Israel protecting itself against such an “inferior culture” as that of the Palestinians, who have not stopped, nor will they stop, attacking Israel, would be shocking.  The only product the Palestinians manufacture, create and sell is terrorists and terrorism.  If a Palestinian even has a job, it is most likely as a terrorist.  If the Palestinians even have schools, can anyone imagine what is being taught?

Zogby completely ignores history when he writes:

in 1994 the Palestinian economy received a devastating hit resulting from the Israeli closure of the territories. The “closure,” which cut Palestinians off from Greater Jerusalem, and severely limited interaction between Palestinians and Israel, was initially imposed as a temporary “preventive measure” in the wake of the massacre of Palestinians committed by an Israeli settler in Hebron. The “temporary closure” never ended.

That massacre was initiated by Baruch Goldstein, and not only was it condemned by Israel, but its own cabinet expelled an extreme right-wing Kach party over its support of Goldstein’s actions that left dozens of Palestinians dead.  In other words, Israeli culture openly condemned acts of terrorism against Palestinians.  Where has Palestinian culture ever condemned acts of terrorism against Israelis?

And why does anyone think Zogby might have omitted those facts from his Romney- Israeli bashing article?

Israel, and its culture, which is far superior to anything in or around the Middle East, is the only think keeping the Middle East from imploding on itself.  If the Palestinians were to stop their acts of terrorism and violence against Israel; if the Palestinians were sincerely interested in peace with Israel, Israel would be more than happy to reopen itself, its borders, to the Palestinian people; to its economy and its culture.  Palestinians don’t want that.  Palestinians want all Jews dead and to take control of Israel for themselves.  That is who the Palestinians are, and that is their culture.  And James Zogby knows it!

Until the Palestinian economy divests itself from terrorism, from the manufacturing, selling and exploitation of terrorism, it will not have an economy worthy of supporting.  And until the Palestinian people, within their culture, renounces its goal of total annihilation for Israel, they will continue to live and die in the poverty they themselves created from their own deep-seeded hate.  And James Zogby knows it!

What is the rest of the Arab world doing to help the Palestinians, to shoulder some of the responsibilities and help Palestinians out of poverty and into jobs?  What is the hapless, useless United Nations doing?  Nothing.  And James Zogby knows it!

With the exception of blood money, and that money used specifically to fuel terrorism and terrorist activities, how much money has the Arab world contributed to the Palestinians to help create jobs, spur new business ventures and economic growth?  Nothing.  And James Zogby knows it!

How much land has the Arab world agreed to donate (or even sell at a reasonable price) to its Muslim and Islamic brethren for a Palestinian State of its own?  Nothing.  And James Zogby knows it!

And so, for pointing out, yet again, just how deeply biased liberals such as yourself are against Israel; how much you truly despise Israel and self-loving Jews (as opposed to self-hating Jews); enough to have gone to the “Arianna Nation” to post your anti-Romney, anti-Israel diatribe, thank you, James Zogby, for best illustrating patent and blatant absurdity, which is the cornerstone of liberalism.

Doesn’t James Zogby know that?

Are We Ready To “Wipe Iran Off The Map”?

The “window” for a peaceful resolution between Iran and Israel is closing.  Iran, as with many Islamist nations, is not shy about its antipathy, its deep-seeded hatred, its absolute and unequivocal animosity towards Israel.  Iran, as with many Islamist nations, is not timid or reserved in trying to hold back how it really feels about Israel.  Neither are they unabashed, nor do they feel the need to be, about what they would like to see happen to Israel and all Jews.  Every single day, multitudes of radical, extremist, pro-death, Islamic fundamental Jihadists gather to gather in crowds and shout the most hateful, despicable anti-Semitic remarks they can make – all in the name of Islam, which they purport to be the “religion of peace”.  In doing so they are as much resolved in their goal to “wipe Israel off the map” as they are unrepentant for having such “lofty” ambitions.

If not every day, then most certainly every day, Israel is faced with some type of attack by these murderous thugs.  Certainly every single day there are some members of this blood thirsty cult planning some type of attack against Israel, Jews and its allies in America, Britain and elsewhere.  They may do it with a nuclear weapon if/when they ever manage to figure out how to assemble one, which they have been trying to do for years.

Iran, and all the surrounding Islamist nations, have the option of leaving Israel alone, and letting Israelis live in peace.  That is all Israel wants.  But that is not what Iran wants.  It’s not what any Islamist nation wants.  It is, in fact, Iran, and most Islamist nations (and certainly the most super radically charged) which are provoking Israel into a fight in order to defend itself.  What is Israel to do?  Ignore the constant barrage of attacks against its own nation, its own infrastructure and its own people?  What nation on Earth does that?  What nation on Earth lets another nation attack it, invade it, destroy it and kill its people without taking action?  What do we call such a nation?  We used to call it – France!

Israel has a right, an obligation and an expectation to defend itself against attack.  Yet, every time Israel does defend itself, the American Left, all liberals and socialists around the world, and that worthless, useless waste of space and human beings – the United Nations – are more shocked, more dismayed, more outraged over Israel defending itself than they are over the unwarranted, unjustified, unexplainable attacks themselves.

So Israel is now gearing up for a possible attack against Iran to set back its nuclear program.  A nuclear program, by the way, which has but one goal, one motivation, one reason for existing – to intimidate Israel into submission, and into giving up a great portion of its land to Muslims, including Jerusalem.  Israel is not at all being secret about its intentions to knock out Iran’s nuclear capability, to what ever extent that now is.  Nor does it need to, at this point.

Israel is at a very serious juncture in its history as a nation.  The Middle east is in flames right now.  Old regimes have toppled, new ones are taking their place, often even more extreme than their predecessors.  Some regimes, such as Bashar Assad’s, in Syria, aren’t giving into their people’s demands so quickly, and are willing to fight to remain in power, however many of its own people they must kill in doing so.  Many thousands of men, women and children have been the casualties of Assad’s brutality.  All of this fighting, what is being called “Arab-Spring” – and perhaps it is a form of what we would call “spring cleaning” – is leading to more instability, more unpredictability, more tension – and more radicalized, more violent, more extreme behavior from the so-called “religion of peace”.  What none of it, Arab-Spring, is leading to, or paving the way for, is peace with Israel.

Israel is becoming more vulnerable and more isolated.  If there is any support for Israel’s plan to attack Iran’s nuclear program, that support is being done in secret.  There are plenty of open and candid calls from the United States (its President and military commanders) for Israel to halt any attacks.  What happens if Israel listens?  In other words, if Israel relents, if it backs away, will Iran do the same thing with its nuclear program?  Will the Palestinians, will all Muslims, back away from Israel and allow Israel to live in peace?  Because if they don’t, why in hell would Israel, why should Israel, allow itself to be bullied and intimidated by these contemptible, murderous thugs?

We have two options to consider.

1.  We can let Iran “wipe Israel off the map”.

2.  We can help Israel “wipe Iran off the map”.

Which is the more preferred option?

U.S., Britain Ought To Wipe The “Proud” Off The Face Of Iran

UPDATEHere Is another reason why we ought to wipe the “proud” off of Iran.

Someone ought to wipe the “proud” off the face of writer, Simon Jenkins, as well, while they’re at it.  Britain yet has a brain which has not been corrupted by leftists and inside traitors in Britain.  There is still moral courage, stamina and determination in Britain, despite being daily pummeled by the enemies of reason within which ever desire to provoke the people, goad them into selling their last vestiges of human resolve.  Britain sees how much stronger Iran is, or thinks it is, now that Libya, Egypt, Syria, Yemen, and other Middle East nations have been weakened by internal revolt, Arab Spring it is often called.  Britain has a choice.  Do nothing and let Iran march towards the Armageddon Iran wants with the world, or – stop Iran before it is too late.  That is the answer to Simon Jenkins question as to why Britain is “ramping up sanctions against Iran“.

Jenkins calls Iran a “proud” country.  Well, yes, Iran is very “proud” in the sense of being arrogant, and Iran is pleased with itself for being so arrogant.  But Iran is also “proud’ in the sense of its anti-humane accomplishments with regards to how it treats women, Christians, Jews, gays and anyone not Muslim or who refuses to convert to Islam.  Iran is “proud” to be anti-Israel.  Iran is “proud” to be a haven for terrorists and terrorism and all the evil exploits they would conduct against America, Israel, Britain and anywhere else in the world not conscripted into radical Islamic jihadism.  Iran is “proud” it is attempting to develop nuclear weapons which it might then use as leverage against Israel, America and all of Britain’s allies.  And for some strange, delusional, unexplainable reason, Jenkins is “proud” of Iran, for what it is, for what it stands for, for what it hopes to be, to accomplish and to gain.  And Jenkins is “proud” of himself for being so “proud” of a “proud” Iran.  Else, why would he be such an ardent, a “proud”, apologist for a country that hates, despises and outlaws the very existence and thought of individual freedom and liberty?

Simon asks:

Do any of Britain’s leaders really think further economic sanctions will stop Iran’s nuclear programme?

Iran and it’s President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, are hell bent on creating a nuclear program and nuclear weapons of extreme mass destruction, period.  Sanction alone, naturally, will not prevent them from slowing their progress.  Sanctions will stop the flow of legal monies entering Iran; it will stop the flow of commerce and trade, except for the nations allied with Iran.  Sanctions will perhaps slow Iran’s abilities to produce a nuclear weapon, but sanctions will not stifle Iran’s resolute ambition.  Iran has secret partners and secret travel routes in which to get the necessary ingredients for making nuclear weapons into Iran.  Sanctions, we understand, are not the solution by a long shot.  Sanctions only curtail the inevitable.  As Jenkins makes note:

Sanctions have been imposed on Iran for 33 years because there was nothing else to do. They have done no good and almost certainly been counterproductive in reinforcing autocracy.

Indeed, sanction would not deter a “proud” Iran from its ultimate goal.  So what is Jenkin’s advocating?  If not sanctions, what?  What is it about leftists anywhere in the world who see apathy and indecision, and doing nothing, as the best, the only, productive alternative?

Sanctions did not topple Saddam Hussein, Slobodan Milosevic or Muammar Gaddafi.

But war and revolt did.  Not apathy or indecision, not pacifism, and certainly not “peace” talk.  So what is Simon’s point?  War, rebellion and action toppled these evil dictators.  All sanctions ever do is stall for time, and give evil dictators the time they need to prepare for whatever madness they have cooked up.  So, why is Jenkins so stubborn about sanctions against Iran?

With an election in the offing, President Obama must show America’s pro-Israel lobby that he is tough somewhere in the Middle East.

Could it be that Jenkins is really an anti-Semite and he know that sanctions will hinder Iran’s plot to destroy Israel?  Could it be that Jenkins wants Iran to complete its mission of creating a nuclear weapon so it might point it at Israel, hold it hostage, blackmail America and Britain into bowing down before Iran?  Could it be that Jenkins is so anti-American, so pro-socialism, he is willing to see Iran become a nuclear nation so that Iran might further diminish America’s righteous role in the world in spreading freedom and true democracy, which is counter to socialism and its agenda?  And once Iran has nuclear weapons, who will prevent it from selling them to Hamas, the PLO, Al Qaeda, the Taliban, or any other terrorist group or regime hostile to America?

Any fool may say, you cannot be too careful. It is the motto of the arms race. Israel has a nuclear capability for that reason, and that is why Iran wants one. A pre-emptive Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear plants might postpone their work, but make eventual war more likely.

If but for the fact there is a liberal Democrat in the white house, a military coward, Israel probably would have struck against Iran by now.  Israel cannot be so certain that such a weak President as Barack Obama would not condone it for defending its nation, its people.  Israel cannot be certain just how close Obama is to its enemies.

Although Israel has nuclear capability, aside from its fledgling alliance with America, that is the only other reason why Iran, or any other anti-Israel regime in the Middle east has not yet invaded Israel.  Iran wants nuclear weapons to even the playing field.  Iran has no compassion for humankind, no sympathy or sorrow for the human beings it now allows to be murdered in the name of Islam and Sharia law.  Iran has no feelings of sadness for the millions of people it would kill in a nuclear strike.  Israel, however, does have a heart.  That is why Israel does not use the nuclear weapons it now possesses.  But so long as Israel does possess nuclear weapons, so long as America remains an ally of Israel, (and under a conservative Republican administration that alliance will be much stronger) Iran will think very hard about striking Israel.  But once Iran gains nuclear weapons, Iran will not care.  Iran has no human emotions regarding the sanctity of life.  Therein lies the difference between Iran and Israel and Jenkins’ perverted leftism and what is common decency and rationality.

I would prefer it if Iran had no such missiles, but that is hardly for Britain to say when it demands “the right” to its own.

Nuclear missiles in the hands of Iran is a far greater threat to the world and to world peace than nuclear missiles in the hands of Britain.  Jenkins seems to believe that Iran has a “right” to nuclear weapons the same as any sane nation.  But Iran, of course, is not a sane nation.  Why can’t Jenkins differentiate between sane and insane?  Perhaps, as a leftist, Jenkins’ mind had warped the two concepts into one meaning.  A trick leftists use to justify their own madness.  If sane and insane can mean the same thing, if sane can also be insane, and insane can be sane, then there is no right or wrong, and everyone is free to believe and to do as they wish.  That’s the motto of hippies, who are themselves leftists.

Economic sanctions are coward’s diplomacy. They purport to high moral stance but are merely a low-risk way of bullying the world. The danger is that they encourage militarist lobbies to escalate the steps that lead to open conflict.

Absolutely agreed.  But if not sanction, if not war, then what is left to do?

But usually the answer to “what to do” about foreign regimes of which we disapprove is, quite simply, to do nothing.

That was America’s response to Hitler, for some years.  It was a long time before America finally “did something”.  And that was only after we were attacked at Pearl Harbor.  We declared war on Japan, but never on Germany.  Why must we wait for some nation to attack us, or our allies, first before we “do something”?  That is the “coward’s diplomacy”.  Neither America, nor Britain, is “bullying the world” by inflicting its military might and prowess against those nations seeking to wreak great harm and destruction against our allies.  It is, in fact, Iran which is “bullying the world”, trying to intimidate Israel and force America and Britain into apathetic submission.  Until Iran actually does have nuclear capability, it must remain on the defensive.  That is why Britain is “ramping up sanctions against Iran” and  why America is doing the same.  It is why the United Nations must accept these sanctions against Iran.

But if Jenkins is right about anything, it is only the fact that sanctions themselves only “encourage militarist lobbies to escalate the steps that lead to open conflict”.  So why not just have the bloody war and get it done with?  If war is going to happen anyway, what is the sense in prolonging it?  Doing so only allows the enemy time to plan, to outfit itself, to ready itself, to strengthen itself against us.

For the most part, other nations’ business is not ours.

The longer we leave “other nations business” alone, such as Iran, the more “proud” these nations will become; the more emboldened and brazen and the more dangerous they will be.  Sanctions will stop the speed at which Iran’s nuclear program is accelerating, but sanctions will not diffuse Iran’s resolve.  War will.  Without going to war against our “proud” enemies, we leave them to walk all over us.  We leave them all the more “proud”.

As for rattling a sabre whenever Washington says so, that is the most humiliating idiocy.

Without war, there is only surrender and what comes afterwards – bondage, slavery and then death in a lonely, lowly unmarked, shallow hovel where it won’t take long for all the creatures of the world above, and underneath, to root you out, dissect you and devour you.  Is that a pretty picture of the world we envision for ourselves and our children?  Is that a lesser “humiliating idiocy”?

Israel (Jewish) = Pro-Life; Palestinians (Muslim) = Pro-Death

Gilad Shalit, an Israeli soldier, is soon (it is presumed) set to be released from captivity, where he has remained as a prisoner, and a hostage, for nearly 5 and one half years.  He was not a criminal at the time of capture, nor had he committed any such crimes, unless you consider it a crime to be Jewish, as most Palestinians do.  Certainly all members of the PLO, Hamas, Hezbollah and other terrorist organizations do.

But there is a catch.  In order for Gilad to be freed, Hamas has demanded Israel release over one thousand Palestinian prisoners in its custody.  Why are these Palestinians in Israeli prisons?  Because unlike Gilad, these prisoners were, and still remain hard to the core, savage, bloodthirsty terrorists.  It is presumed, without question, once this exchange occurs, the terrorists will not hang up their guns and live out their remaining lives in peace and piety.  Rather, they will go back to what they do best, what they have been programmed to do – kill Jews.

It is telling just how much value Jewish Israel puts on human life (and is willing to put on human life) and how so little value the Muslim Palestinians do not, when Israel is prepared to have Gilad, one soul, returned at a cost of freeing over one thousand soulless, murderous, Muslim terrorists back into the hands of Hamas and the PLO.  Why is it impossible for Palestinians to recognize that the prisoners Israel has in its custody are hardened terrorists whose only mission in life concerns the destruction of Israel and the annihilation of all Jews?  Unless there is unanimous consensus among all Palestinians that Israel and all Jews must “disappear”.  Is this how “peaceful Muslims” desire to be known?

And after the exchange?  Does anyone expect to see peace and harmony between Israel and the Palestinians?  Does anyone really believe Hamas, the PLO or Hezbollah will end their bloody feud, accept the Israelis and find a way to live with and among one another?  All this going on at the same time they are still calling for a Palestinian state, and when their desire to wipe Israel and all Jews off the face of the Earth is as strong as ever!

Most Israelis support the exchange, according to a just published poll.  What does that tell you about the moral strength and moral character of the average Jewish Israeli?  Would the Palestinians ever even considered a one on one exchange for Gilad?  What does that tell you about the moral weakness and immoral character of the average Muslim Palestinian?

One prisoner set to be released in exchange for Gilad is:

Ahlam Tamimi, a woman who drove a suicide bomber to a crowded Jerusalem pizzeria in 2001.  He killed 15 people, including seven children and teenagers.

Can you imagine if someone had aided and abetting a Jewish suicide bomber into a Palestinian place of business, and had killed a number of Palestinians?  First of all, that doesn’t happen.  Secondly, if it had, or ever does, and Hamas or the PLO had captured the accomplice, would they even live long enough to be part of a prisoner exchange?  Would the Palestinians ever consider exchanging such a person for one of their own homemade terrorists?

While Hamas is preparing a “heroes” welcome for hundreds of these Palestinian terrorists, many of the parents and relatives of Israelis murdered by these same terrorists are petitioning the Israeli court to reject the deal, knowing that, from previous experience, it will lead to the further murdering of more Jews.  They are not holding out much hope, considering the majority support among Israelis for the deal going forward.

What will be interesting, in the coming months, and next year or two, is how the Palestinians conduct themselves with regards to committing acts of terrorism against Israelis.  The reason?  Palestinians want statehood, are demanding statehood, are demanding they be recognized as a legitimate state and are demanding to be recognized by the U.N. and the rest of the world.  But if Hamas, the PLO and Hezbollah, if their own people, cannot restrain themselves, if they pursue more acts of terrorism against Israelis, if they continue to murder Israelis, will the U.N. really have the audacity to grant statehood status to a people who, although they have a brain, don’t know how to use it?

Assuming that Palestinian terrorists can restrain themselves until their statehood is recognized (and if and when such a Palestinian statehood is accepted, it will only come from land divvied up from Arab countries, not Israel) will cooler Palestinian heads prevail, or will all that hate and antisemitism that has built up all this time, brewing, boiling, bubbling over explode into full scale terrorism once again?

Even now, before statehood, before the prisoner exchange, Palestinians refuse to recognize Israel, refuse to accept Israel, refuse to let Israel live in peace.  Why would anyone postulate an immaculate change in attitude after the exchange and after statehood?

It will be up to the young Palestinians to decide for themselves how they want their culture, their identity to move forward into the future.  You just can’t teach old Palestinians new tricks.  And you can’t teach a hardened, pro-death Palestinian Muslim terrorist to “love thy neighbor” if that neighbor happens to be a Jew.

History, sadly, is very clear on this.

Sometimes Peace Can Only Be Secured Through War…

An impetuous and confused Hillary Clinton has put her foot in her mouth calling Israeli Settlement Expansion In East Jerusalem ‘Counterproductive’.

Said Clinton:

“We have long urged both sides to avoid any kind of action which could undermine trust, including, and perhaps most particularly, in Jerusalem, any action that could be viewed as provocative by either side.”

Clinton calls an additional 1,100 units “provocative” and says she wants to “avoid any kind of action which could undermine trust” at the same time the Palestinians are demanding statehood, refusing to recognize the state of Israel and promising to exterminate all Jews.  Who the hell is it who is being “provocative” here, and who is she trying to fool with her double talk?  It is Hillary Clinton, not Israel, that is being “counterproductive”.  It is Hillary Clinton who is “undermining trust”.  It is Hillary Clinton who is going out of her way not to “avoid any action”.  Clearly her inflammatory, anti-Israel rhetoric demands “action”.  It demands her apology to Israel!  Good luck with that ever happening.

Thankfully a level headed Benjamin Netanyahu has dismissed her anti-Israel grumblings and will proceed with the expansion of Jewish settlements.  However, this is not the end of it.  Hillary Clinton, like most in the Obama Administration, appear to be closely imbedded with, and growing closer to, the enemies of Israel who have grown more emboldened since Barack Obama became President.  And remarks like those Clinton made against Jewish expansion will not make Israel’s enemies bite their tongues or curb their desire to make peace with Israel a real possibility any time soon.

On the contrary, you have Islamic Imams threatening Jihad against the United States; an arrogant Iranian government taunting America with its navy, ramping up its own military forces, confident America is in a weaker position, both politically and militarily, to counter attack; and now Egypt wants all Jews, Israelis and Zionists expelled from its nation.

All this going on throughout the world and Hillary Clinton is worried that 1,100 housing units for a growing Israeli population is going to upset the peace process?  Someone needs to inform Clinton there isn’t any “peace process”, there won’t ever be a peace process; that the so called “peace process” is, and always has been, a charade.  Arabs and Muslims don’t want peace – not with Israel, not with  America.  Not now, not in the future.

Hillary Clinton and the Barack Obama Administration have the audacity to talk of peace between Israel and the Palestinians through Israeli concessions, while the Palestinians talk openly of annihilating the Jews and taking the whole of Israel for themselves.  These bizarre actions, the deafening silence of Barack Obama to not scold the Palestinians, demand an explanation.

The longer we continue to merely talk of peace, the more our enemies the world over are becoming less fearful of America’s might and moving toward war, all at a time when Barack Obama does not have a plan to avert deep cuts in our defense spending.  If these cuts in defense occur, America will be made that much weaker, that much more vulnerable, that much less able to provide military assistance to our allies, Israel included, if war were to break out, let alone ourselves.

The time for talk is passed.  The time for peace negotiations had ended.  It is time to talk of war.  It is time to threaten war against America’s enemies and those enemies that would harm Israel.  We’ve tried for years, for decades to “give peace a chance”.  Our enemies don’t want peace, they want war.  They want war!  And how do we contend with a people who are so staunchly set on war if we don’t acquiesce to their ridiculous demand that Israel give up its right to exist and its people give up their right to live?  How do we rationally deal with a people who have every intention of making war against Israel and America until this ridiculous, idiotic demand is met?  How, and why, do we continue to deal with them at all?

Have we really become a nation that readily bows to our enemies like Obama bows to foreign leaders?

Perhaps it is for the best to continue the “talk”, ever stalling for time, for hope, for better, more courageous leadership, until at least after the 2012 election.  Obama is weak now.  But if he wins a second term, how much longer can we merely talk before our enemies, and Israel’s, realize we have no stomach for war, no desire for war, no funding in the budget to pay for war?

All that giving “peace a chance” accomplishes is to give our enemies that much more time and leverage, that much more of an advantage.

It’s time to “give war a chance“!

It’s time to elect a strong, solid Presidential candidate who is willing to “give war a chance“.  It’s time to stop fooling ourselves into believing our enemies want peace.  It’s time to accept that sometimes in order to secure peace, that peace can only be secured through war.

History has proven that war better solves the problems, and more quickly ends the wide spread suffering, that peace talk merely prolongs.  History has also proven what happens the longer that war is prolonged.

Israel Has The Right To Exist (And To Expand Their Settlements)

Israel, with roughly 8000 to 8500 square miles in total land value, is roughly equivalent with the state of New Jersey, which is actually only slightly larger.  Yet, the Palestinian Liberation Organization demands a piece of it for their own homeland.   And if it was not for the strong relationship Israel has with the United States (the Barack Obama Administration aside) not only would the PLO be demanding an even greater piece, but they would have, long ago, brazenly, and with the support of Hamas and most of the Middle East, invaded Israel and fought a very bloody, very costly war to take it.  Although Israel most likely would prevail in such a war, without the support of the United States, its only real ally, the casualties would have been considerably greater simply because, without the United States, lawless insurgents and terrorists would be that much more emboldened, leading to a greater death toll on both sides.

Israel already gave up the Gaza Strip in the name of peace, and in the hope of more peaceful relations with the Palestinians.  That has not come to fruition.  (The Israelis had constructed state of the art greenhouses which were promptly destroyed once the Palestinians took control of the land.  Obviously the Palestinians are not that much into environmentalism or the whole “going green” movement.)

Situations have only become worse.   The Palestinians have continued their attacks, and recently have stepped up those attacks, and won’t be satisfied until they get control of the West Bank and, eventually, the rest of Israel itself.  And because the Obama Administration has been, for the most part either silent, or teetering back and forth without a definitive resolution, and except for a statement Barack Obama made early on in his presidency in which he had hoped to see the United Nations welcome a new Palestinian state into it fold (he has since backed away from that), the misguided passion of the Palestinians has only grown, along with their hostility toward, and contempt for, Israel and their ever surmountable anger with Israel’s expanding settlements.

Now, the PLO is demanding the United Nations grant them statehood status, a dangerous move which, if it is aloud to proceed, will have devastating consequences, and almost certainly lead to war.   The PLO has already gone on record saying such a new Palestinian state would be devoid of any and all Jews.  Considering they want a part of Israel to claim as their own, (a piece the size of which they will never be satisfied with), land which is presently occupied with Jews, the ramifications are obvious – mass expulsions.  It’s hard to believe these Jews would go quietly.  They didn’t even go quietly when they were removed by their own government from the Gaza Strip.

The United States has promised to veto any move to allow Palestinian statehood, and to keep such a bid from ever reaching the United Nations.  Many are nonetheless fearful that in doing so, new violence would emerge.  However, it must be recognized that there would be violence regardless.  The PLO, Hamas, Palestinians in general, and the Middle East at large, have yet to affirm Israel’s own right to exist.  Quite humorous, then, and no hypocrisy whatsoever, this is exactly what the Palestinians are demanding for themselves.

The question has to be asked – do the Palestinians really want statehood, or do they really want the State of Israel itself.  In other words, would they accept statehood status if land was offered from Egypt, Syria, Iran or any other Middle east nation?  God knows these nations have plenty of open, fertile space between them to offer up the Palestinians.  (And not many, if any, Jews residing in the area.)  And such a move would be praised by the United States, and, although reluctantly, the U.N. (The U.N. is no fan of Israel.)  It would promote peace and prosperity for the Palestinians, promote pride in their newly formed state and gain accolades from leaders all over the world.  It is of no surprise the PLO is reluctant to even consider such an move.  Their agenda is clear – the annexation of all Israeli land and the annihilation of all the Jews.  This is their mantra and they won’t be satisfied until it has been met.

We, that is, America (there really isn’t anyone else) must be firm.  Absolutely no statehood for the Palestinians.  Not until long after they have ceased their attacks, given up entirely their goal of conquest, dismantled the PLO, Hamas and any other anti-Israel terror organization, accepted Israel’s right to exist and have shown and demonstrated a very real and genuine attempt to live peaceably with its Jewish neighbors.   They don’t have to invite each other over for tea, or even carry on a social conversation with one another.

But there must absolutely be peace.  A peace strongly enforced by a new Palestinian government, free of any links to terrorism or terrorists.  And if any Israeli land is to be annexed and incorporated into this new Palestinian state, (though this seems unnecessary) it ought to be done with the full cooperation of the Israeli government and its people.  Included in this agreement, a legal stipulation that if ever the Palestinians recreate the PLO, Hamas or any Palestinian organization, under any name, affiliate themselves with any anti-Israeli terror groups in any way, however remote; if the Palestinians ever again attempt to seize control of Israeli land, wage, or sponsor, attacks against Israel, or do not suppress such attacks by its own people, such a move would automatically revert any and all land earlier annexed for the new Palestinian state back to Israel.

Until that happens – the PLO, and all Palestinians, ought to keep their hands and their eyes off Israel.  It is the prize of the Israelis.
