The Israeli/Palestinian conflict is not complicated.
For Israel it can be summed: Survival of it's existence.
For the Palestinians it can be summed: Destroy Israel. Nothing less.
This isn't an argument on principals or economic and cultural differences as some would have you believe.
This is about Jewish hatred and the sheer numbers of haters that out-populate Jews on earth by a ratio of 100 to 1. Meanwhile, several of those Islamic governments happen to hold an international trump card called "Oil." Oil = International influence.
That very paragraph defines the motive for all the tilt in international propaganda and the leanings of the useless and impotent United Nations.
For those who think this is a modern era problem, think again. Long before Israel ever became a country, the mullahs of Palestine were conspiring with Hitler to do their share in seeing the Final Solution to success.
Jewish hatred has reigned within the Islamic world since the days of the Prophet, Muhammed, when, during his evangelistic period in Medina, Jews refused to convert to Islam. In one setting, following the Battle of the Trench, over seven hundred Jewish males were beheaded. Then their wives were taken as concubines while children were herded by the thousands into Madrases for Islamic indoctrination.
So, now we have nasty-old Israel - condemned by oil-thirsty nations around the globe - in a position of defending itself from annihilation since the day of its inception in 1948 when three Arab nations declared war - and lost!
Israel was attacked again in 1956, 1967 and 1973. Each time, the Arabs lost. Since, Israel has engaged in a number of mini-wars and skirmishes for no other reason than to defend it's people from unrelentless bombings and rocket attacks. When they gave Gaza back to the Palestinians in 2005, uprooting thousands of Jewish settlers in a gesture to show conciliation, gratitude was displayed by raining thousands of launched rockets into Israeli townships for the purpose of random murder. So much for conciliation.
War is hell. Some win, some lose. To the spoils go the victor.
Germany and Japan lost WW II. They had to eat dirt, alter their boundaries and rebuild, which the U.S. invested in. Meanwhile, the U.S. maintains presence and control of Islands outside Japan such as Okinawa.
Throughout the history of the world, national boundaries have been altered hundreds of times by winners and losers of wars. It's part of the risk. If you don't want to lose, don't start a war.
If you own a home and provide for your family, it is natural that you will protect your property and the people you love. Consider that as Israel. If you are surrounded on all sides by neighbors who hate you because of a color or religion you cannot and will not change, do you move away at their demand and seek refuge anywhere? If threats of murder and mayhem against your property are incessantly followed by bullets and bombs, are you going to give up and die, or defend yourself?
We all know the answers.
The so-called "Peace Process" in the mid-east laughable. Why? Just read the Hamas Charter.
The unambiguous Charter leaves no wiggle room for negotiations. I'll provide a link below for anyone who wants to read through the entire document. Meanwhile, here are some excerpts:
* Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.
* Initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and international conferences, are in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement. Abusing any part of Palestine is abuse directed against part of religion.
* There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors.
Peace process? Give me a break.
It's always been about destroying Israel, nothing less. Meanwhile, what other country is Israel trying to conquer from within? Where in any of Israel's objectives does it talk about spreading Judaism throughout the world, as does the Muslim Brotherhood about Islam? Where and when have Israelis organized civilian bombings and murders in train stations, airplanes, buses and restaurants in almost every country in the world, killing multi-thousands of innocent human beings?
Israel is the bad guy...right.
What can be done? Hamas can alter its charter and recognize the right for Israel to exist. Until that happens, there will be no peace in the middle east. That equate to the tiny nation having to constantly defend itself for the next few centuries.
What's scary is knowing that the powerful media is equally as biased. As I mentioned in my recent blog, subliminal inclusions and exclusions of facts and words have a powerful effect on swaying opinions, and we don't even know it's happening. The recent public regurgitation of Jew-hater, Helen Thomas, makes one wonder how often she has engaged in overt and/or covert influence when publishing her left-leaning syndicated columns...which newspapers such as the New York Times and the Washington Post have drooled over.
"If the Palestinians laid down their arms, there were be peace in the middle east. If the Israelis laid down their arms, there would be no Israel."
That's why Israel boards ships headed for Gaza, to make sure killing machines aimed for Jews are not on board, as promised by the Hamas Charter. And, which proves to be true. You either survive, or you die. See the video below:
Thirty years of law enforcement in Miami, Florida, including sixteen years working homicide, gives Marshall Frank a huge reservoir from which to draw insights into the problems facing America today. After retiring from the Miami-Dade P.D. in 1990, Frank went on to become a writer, now with eight published books, five fiction and three non-fiction. His book "Militant Islam In America" was published after an exhaustive research study about the inroads that radicals are making within the borders of the U.S. He is currently working on a non-fiction book about the abominable criminal justice system.
