War in Israel and my old Volkswagen

The latest war between Israel and Hamas again raises an important question: Is this the war that Israel will finally fight to win?

When I started college, I bought a used Volkswagen at a very good price from the widow of a family friend. It had been her husband’s car and she was not going to drive it again. For me, it was a good deal because, for financial reasons, I was going to commute rather than live on or near campus. Without the car, I would have had to rely on public transportation, and my commute, rather than taking 45 minutes each way, would have been double that time.

I owned that car for the next eight years. It was a terrible lemon. It left me stranded on the freeway innumerable times, including one of the worst rainstorms the early 1980s (a time of torrential rains) had to offer. The car broke down in the Sierras, the Rockies, and the heat of Texas. Speaking of Texas, not only did the car not have A/C, but the heating system broke and it blew hot air into the car all year long.

The problem was that I was in a situation that all poor people know: I could always scrape together the money to repair the car but I never had enough money to replace the car. And of course, that hole kept getting deeper because every repair further depleted any fund I might have started to buy a new car or, at least, a better, more reliable used car. By the end of my eight years of ownership, I had managed cumulatively to spend more money on that wreck of a vehicle than I would have spent had I just bought another car.

I keep thinking of my travails with that old car when I look back on Israel’s wars with the local Arabs.

An interlude here: I am no longer calling them the “Palestinians,” which gives them a historic claim to the land — by tying them to the Philistines or even the Palestinians from the Roman era —  that they utterly lack. The Arabs in Gaza, the West Bank, and Israel itself are Ottoman Empire Arabs who have been on the land for roughly 150 years. That’s a mere blip compared to the fact that Jews have had a continuous presence in Israel for over 4,000 years.

The concept of Palestinian nationalism was an idea that Yassir Arafat cooked up in the 1960s. Every time we use the word Palestinian, we are giving credence to that historic lie. Henceforth, I will refer to Israel’s enemies in Gaza, the West Bank, and Israel itself solely as Arabs — or perhaps, Jordanians, because that is their true nationality if they can be said to have one.

Interlude over. Back to my post about my old car and Israel’s approach to war.

Since the Israeli War of Independence, which was a purely existential war and which Israel had to fight to victory, Israel has never fought a war to the point of victory. Instead, in large part because of international pressure, Israel invariably fights wars to the point at which the Arabs demand a truce.

The international pressure on Israel for truces is always enormous. Brendan O’Neill points out that Israel is the only country in the world denied the right to self-defense. Others have made this point before but I think O’Neill does a particularly good job.

Biden, for example, is already pressuring Israel to end the violence, as if having thousands of rockets raining down on your entire country is just something you can walk away from. (To get an idea of the scope of the barrage, imagine rockets raining down on 1/3 of America, started at the entire Eastern seaboard and moving west.) The only infinitesimally small satisfaction I’m having from all of this is watching Democrat Zionist Jews on my social media grappling with the fact that, as I warned them, Biden wants to see Israel gone. Their struggles with cognitive dissonance amuse me.

But again, back to my main point about how all of the last 70 years of wars have ended….

Israel never conquers the Arabs. Or, to follow my car metaphor, she never buys a new car. Instead, by stopping short of victory, she does the equivalent of muddling along with my old car. She keeps doing temporary fixes that invariably fail, forcing her to engage in painful and costly repairs. Unlike my car, though, the cost isn’t just money. It’s blood. That’s a much higher cost.

And it’s not just Israeli blood. It’s Arab blood too. The first casualties of Hamas’s strike with a father and daughter (16 years old) who were Muslim Arab residents of Israel. A 5-year-old boy and a 21-year old soldier were killed. And Hamas has managed to kill more than 3 dozen Gaza residents with misfired rockets. The numbers will only go up.

The only way this will end is if Israel finally fights to victory. In the long run, a single victory will come at a lower cost for Israel and the surrounding Arabs than these endlessly dribbled out engagements.

Currently, Netanyahu is pretending that this time the Israelis will fight to win. Hamas, as it always does, is trying to get a truce that leaves it in a better position, even though Israel has greater military might. This article explains Hamas’s strategy:

The current major escalation between Israel and Hamas is a result of the terror organization’s long-term strategic vision aimed at ultimately crowning it as “Jerusalem’s defender,” both in the internal Palestinian arena and throughout the Middle East.

[snip]

The move serves Hamas’ interests on multiple levels. On the Palestinian street, it positions Hamas as the dominant party in the struggle for leadership with Fatah. In the Arab world, it pushes back against Arab states engaged in normalization in Israel, by sending out the message to their publics that these countries are counterfeit defenders of Jerusalem, while Hamas is the genuine deal.

This creates long-term legitimacy for Hamas in the Arab world, reversing its isolation. It could see Hamas receive significant support and funding in the future, even if it currently risks the immediate goals of rebuilding Gaza now.

[snip]

Hamas has, in fact, begun sending out feelers for a truce, as seen in statements calling on international intervention over Israel’s decision to stop fuel movement into Gaza.

Those truce efforts (which are really victory efforts) are continuing. This vaguely anti-Israel “news” story was just posted 30 minutes before I pasted it here:

Hamas sent a heavy barrage of rockets deep into Israel on Thursday, and Israel pounded Gaza with more airstrikes. The relentless escalation of hostilities came even as Egyptian negotiators held in-person talks with the two sides, intensifying efforts at mediation.

[snip]

Many world leaders have condemned the violence and urged restraint, and a visit by Egyptian security officials was a significant development in international efforts to bring about a cease-fire; such efforts have been key to ending past rounds of fighting. The officials met first with Hamas leaders in Gaza before holding talks with the Israelis in Tel Aviv, two Egyptian intelligence officials said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the press.

Netanyahu is engaged in the usual pretense of “holding firm”:

“It will take more time, but with great firmness … we will achieve our goal — to restore peace to the State of Israel,” he said.

The previous evening, Israeli TV reported Netanyahu’s Security Cabinet authorized a widening of the offensive that the military says has already hit 600 targets in Gaza.

Reading it, one might think, “Maybe this is it. Maybe this time Israel will fight the war to win, rather than hemorrhaging blood and lives for another several decades.” But then reality kicks in. Sooner or later, the international pressure will be too much to bear, coming as it will be pictures of those dead children the Arabs always provide for the cameras. At that point, as she always does, Israel will not take the steps necessary to change the dynamic (e.g., to buy that new car). Instead, she walks away, once again having achieved nothing other than keeping the rattletrap of current Israeli-Arab policy on the road for a little while longer.

The election — and my decision to be happy

If Biden really wins, a lot of bad things are coming our way, but that doesn’t mean we give up the fight or destroy our personal happiness.

As I write these words, the election is anything but over. It’s possible that the Democrats overplayed their hand when it came to vote fraud. It’s also possible that, in January, Americans will see a doddering, corrupt old man sworn in as the 46th president of the United States.

I can game out some things if Biden actually wins (and by Biden, I also mean Harris when the Dems kick Biden out under the 25th Amendment), without getting the Senate, and it’s a mixed bag. These are my guesses:

1. Sunni nations will rush to make deals with Israel because Biden and Harris have promised to pull Iran back from the useful brink to which Trump’s policies pushed it. Those alliances might be enough to create a balance that looks like, although it won’t actually be, peace. This will be good for Israel because the new Democrat party is extremely hostile and President Biden-Harris will do everything possible to make Israel’s life miserable and pander to the Palestinians.

2. Biden will crack down on fracking because his base demands it. America will cease to be an energy-independent, energy-exporting nation and we’ll again start funding bad actors around the world who happen to be sitting on oil and gas. Everything will become much more expensive because our entire modern economy runs on oil. This will be a disaster for people on fixed incomes.

3. Because conservatives seem (just barely) to have kept the Senate, we will have two years during which we will not need to worry about court-packing or adding new states. If the Senate flips in 2022, expect both to happen immediately. The fact that the Constitution bars the District of Columbia from becoming a state will not stop Democrats because they will have a 15 member Supreme Court that finds a penumbra of an emanation that overrides the Constitution’s explicit words.

4. Biden will immediately reverse the President’s executive orders about Critical Race Theory, the 1776 Project, and the reinstatement of due process for men in academia accused of sexual wrongdoing. American education will continue to degrade and federal workers will be indoctrinated in Critical Race Theory. Race relations in America, contrary to what the media have told America, will decline rapidly. White men will bear the brunt of it, which neurotic white women engaging in high masochism to show that they’re not racist.

5. Biden will make love to China, which will once again suck the money out of our economy, and Midwesterners will return to unemployment and illegal Chinese opiates.

6. Biden will expand DACA and essentially give amnesty to all illegal aliens. The border will be reopened entirely. This election will have been a little too close for comfort for the Democrats, so they’ll continue to work on replacing the existing population with people already accustomed to socialism and corruption.

7. No, the Supreme Court won’t be able to stop him because the federal bureaucracy will simply ignore the Supreme Court. That’s the real problem. Trump has created a mostly conservative federal judicial system. But because Biden will allow the bureaucracy to do what it will, the Deep State will ignore any rulings it doesn’t like and their boss — the president — will do nothing to stop them. Indeed, ultimately, court-packing will prove irrelevant as the left realizes that the Court’s power is imaginary.

8. Keeping in mind that the Court’s power will be imaginary, Biden will issue a stream of executive orders aimed at disarming Americans.

That’s off the top of my head.

Having said all that, I’ve still decided to be happy. I’m certainly not happy about what will happen under President Biden, but I don’t do myself or the world a service if I collapse into a neurotic, screaming heap as the lefties did for the four years of Trump’s presidency. I will be a happy activist working to shore up conservativism in America, working to keep the Senate in Republican hands in 2022, and working even harder for a future President Crenshaw, or Cotton, or Cruz, or any number of other hugely intelligent, committed, proactive young conservatives.

Yes, politics is my life — I write about it for a living — but that doesn’t mean it has to destroy my life. There are so many good things: Lindsey Graham, my Senator, beat back the most heavily funded Democrat in American campaign history. I have my health and a good, hard-working brain. I have loving children. I have wonderful friends. America is still America and, God willing and thanks to Trump’s hard work over the last four years, it is strong enough to survive four more years of crazy.

What we conservatives need to do is what the leftists have done for 50 years — we need to fight to take back America’s institutions. Speaking of which, Fox, which hired a Democrat operative for its election desk, needs to be thrown in the garbage heap. I will continue to listen to Tucker, and I know there are many of you who like Gutfield (I just don’t have the time for both him and Tucker), but otherwise the station is dead to me.

Every election we talk about fighting back, but we never do. We’re conservative. We put our heads down and pay attention to our lives so that we can be self-reliant, free people. We have to look outwards, though. Frankly, I don’t know how. I guess that, like George Washington Plunkett, if you see your opportunity, take it!

And that’s all I have to say for now. The sun is shining, my dog is gently snoring behind me, and I am happy.

NYC: Muslim doctor called on people to spit on ‘Jew dogs,’ beat up Zionists, yet is allowed to treat Jewish patients

“The hospital discovered his social media rants and last year tried to fire Khass from his position as a pediatric resident, however, Khass took them to court and won his job back claiming the hospital wrongly fired him for violating his ‘freedom of speech.’”

That’s ridiculous. I’m a free speech absolutist, but there is no doubt that no one has the freedom or the right to call for harming other people. This man is supposed to be a doctor, but what will he do if he has a Jewish, Zionist, or Christian patient? He should not just be fired from New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital; he should be barred from practicing medicine immediately.

SEE ALL OF JIHADWATCH.ORG ARTICLES HERE

“‘Beat Up Zionists’: NY Doctor Tweets Violent Anti-Semitic Incitement, Permitted to Treat Jews,” by Yakir Benzion, United With Israel, September 13, 2020:

For the past two years New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital has been trying to fire a doctor with a history of posting anti-Semitic and violently anti-Israel messages on social media.

Next week, the hospital and Dr. Walid Khass will be back in court to address the doctor’s eight-year history of tweets denigrating Jews and calling for Israel’s destruction.

Before Khass was hired as a resident at the hospital, his reputation for virulently anti-Israel social media activity was known.

As far back as 2012, Khass tweeted “My beloved Palestine! Spit on you, Jew dogs!” His tweets continued as a medical student until his graduation from St. George’s University (SGU) School of Medicine in June 2019, reported Canary Mission, a watchdog organization that tracks anti-Semitism on campuses….

On August 1, 2014, Khass tweeted: “quran chapter 2 take not the christians and the jews for friends — I’m Muslim And Know This.”

On November 13, 2014, Khass tweeted: “Go Beat Up A Zionist, You’re Not You When You Don’t Beat Up A Zionist.”

His tweets are also racist including one on July 10, 2015, in which he said: “Israel Needs To Stop Payin Ethiopians To Pretend That They’re Jewish Just So They Can Have A Bigger Population.”

On February 9, 2017, Khass tweeted: “Trump Trust Me, The Only People Ruining Our Country Is The Zionist Israeli’s …. #FreePalestine.”

The Canary Mission website lists at least 57 tweets by Khass that call for violence, spread anti-Semitism, support the Hamas terror group, and spread hatred of Israel and calls for its destruction.

The hospital discovered his social media rants and last year tried to fire Khass from his position as a pediatric resident, however, Khass took them to court and won his job back claiming the hospital wrongly fired him for violating his “freedom of speech.”…

Trump is bringing peace to the Middle East, and the Democrats Seem To Hate It….

Trump is bringing peace to the Middle East, and the Democrats are not impressed

By Andrea Widburg

On Tuesday, President Trump welcomed to the White House Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the foreign ministers representing the UAE and Bahrain. They gathered there to sign the Abraham Accord, a history-making agreement that sees two Muslim nations formally normalize their relationship with the world’s only Jewish state. Trump also hinted that several more Muslim countries would follow, including Saudi Arabia. Trump is doing what everyone said was impossible: Bringing peace to the Middle East. Democrats, however, responded by downplaying and attacking the agreement.

The participants were excited because they recognized that they are the first in a cascade of peace agreements that coming. By sidelining the Palestinians, Trump was able to make the UAE and Bahrain – and will be able to make other Sunni states – see that a relationship with Israel is beneficial for them. The UAE isn’t hiding its pleasure with the new status quo:

Israel Badly Needs To Face Reality

There’s a name for trying the same thing over and over again and expecting different result, thanks to Albert Einstein. It’s called insanity.And sadly, we’re once again witnessing the Israeli government doing just that. Israel badly needs to face reality

Anyone who still thinks there’s any life in the so called ‘peace process’ and the so-called ‘two state solution’ is playing this game and wearing blinders.

First, this nonsense has been tried several times with absolutely no success. This was what Oslo was supposed to be all about, remember? And remember how it turned out, with a terrorist squat in Judea and Samaria and one in Gaza? Exactly.

If we look at the facts, there have been several times when the Arabs who refer to themselves as ‘Palestinians’ have been offered peace deals…at one time, three different Israeli left wing prime ministers offered the Palestinian Authority ninety-five, and then ninety-six percent of the “occupied” territories. And the ‘Palestinians; refused, just as they’re refusing now. I wonder why….wait, of course it’s an easy one to figure out…this is what they really want:

http://www.think-israel.org/jul13pix/abbas.palestine.map.of.israel.jpg

Why yes! What they want isn’t peace. They want no Israel to exist at all. How hard is that to figure out? OK, it’s obvious They never intended at all to live in peace with the Jews. After all, they have never kept a single part of any agreement they’ve signed and have actively promoted terrorism in their mosques, media and schools. Abbas habitually refers to imprisoned terrorists as ‘holy martyrs’ for deliberately targeting and killing Jews and Palestinian media actually encourages this…and then of course there’s the money you get whether your killed or just thrown in jail, $500 and up depending on how many Jews you killed. It’s a nice income by Palestinian standards.

Oslo, of course was a product of Bill Clinton, who had Arafat to the White House more than any other foreign leader.Since Labor leader Yizhak Rabin owed President Clinton for some clandestine aid in getting him elected Prime Minister, Oslo was a done deal, a terrorist enemy right next door to Israel that resulted in zero peace and a lot of dead and maimed Jews.

And guess what? Nothing, I mean nothing has changed. It wasn’t so long ago that PLO leader Jibril Rajoub said openly that “If we had a nuclear weapon I’d use it on Israel tomorrow.” This is the same terrorist who the Israelis actually gave medical care to. They also gave Medical care to Abbas and to his wife. Can you imagine doing this for someone who hates you with all his heart and wants to exterminate you?

And we haven’t even mentioned Hamas yet. My point is simply this…the Arabs who call themselves ‘Palestinians’ have no interest in peace with Israel. We can accept that as a given, simply because it’s be proven numerous times.
The latest manifestation of this fairy tale about peace is known as ‘The Deal Of The Century’ presented by the Trump administration. And as much as I respect President Trump, it’s at least a viable attempt. But it won’t ever work since its just another attempt to get the PLO to accept something they will never accept and don’t want.
And frankly, as written, it’s not really that good a deal for Israel. Let’s look at why, shall we?
First of all,Israel is being asked to give up something it owns anyway.
The land in question is Judea and Samaria, AKA The ‘West Bank’ although it’s only that if you’re looking at it from Jordan. After WWI, the UK was given a Mandate by the League of Nations to administer all of what was then the former Turkish province known as Palestine. Originally, all of this was supposed to be the Jewish State. A couple of years later, The Brits asked the League for permission to divide the area, the reason being that they wanted a kingdom for one of the Sharif of Mecca’s sons, Abdullah. He wanted Syria but so did the French, so what he got was 78% of ‘Palestine’ as the Arab State, Jordan which consisted of everything east of the Jordan River.  The Jews were to get the other 22%, everything west of the Jordan River for the Jewish state. This division was agreed on and signed on to by the Brits, The Jews, the Arabs and the League in 1922 in a treaty called the San Remo Accords.
The Brits saw to it that the Arabs got their state very quickly. And then proceeded to do everything they could to stop the Jews from establishing theirs in numerous ways. They deliberately limited Jewish migration to what became Israel while allowing unlimited Arab migration. This came to a head when the Brits chose to violate the San Remo accords and stopped all Jewish migration . In 1939, Britain anti-Semitic Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain issued an order not to let any Jews into Palestine at all… at a time when thousands of Jewish refugees from Germany and other countries who had fled to France and other countries had nowhere else to go.
Not content with that,  after WWII, when Labour’s Clem Atlee took over, he made the decision to not allow Jews into Palestine. The Brits  even had their own concentration camp on Cyprus for any survivors of the Holocaust they caught trying to get in, and in some cases, they even sent Jews back to the very same camps in Europe they had been  imprisoned in.

In 1948, when Israel declared its independence  the UN recognized it, although  Britain didn’t. The UN also made the San Remo Accords part of its charter, in Article 80…which has never been  removed or repealed.
So under international law, Everything west of the Jordan River belongs to Israel. They have no need to bargain about it or make any exchange that will only result in more terrorist violence.
Israel lost this land for 19 years  because in 1948,  Brit PM Clem Atlee armed the surrounding Arab armies to the teeth, even though they were openly promising a second Holocaust three years after Auschwitz was liberated. Not only that, but he sent British officers to command the Jordanian Arab Legion under Colonel John Glubb, a known anti-semite. It was these officers who oversaw the ethnic cleansing of every Jew in Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem as well as the destruction of many Jewish shrines and synagogues. While the UN never recognized THAT illegal occupation, they never did anything about it either.
To add insult to injury, the areas Israel is going to be allowed to regain officially involve established Israeli communities already existing  for years. You know, what the UN and EU like to refer to as ‘settlements.’
In fact, most of this area was promised to Israel as part of GW Bush’s ‘Road Map’ in exchange for giving up Gaza. These are the same commitments Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton swore didn’t exist even though  they were referred to in a Bush speech and in the agreement itself. Arik Sharon, who made the agreement with GW Bush was in a coma at that point, and of course Bushie Boy kept his mouth shut.
Not only that, but the some of  EU is threatening Israel with sanctions if they make these areas an official part of Israel. And the US is still thinking it over, whether Israel gets even this much.Some deal hmm? And here’s the cherry on top. Israel has to give the PLO 4 years to decide if they’ll abide by any part of this, And during those 4 years Israel is not allowed to build anything in areas they’ve lived in for years!
Some sovereignty!
And here’s the real loser……some of the land the ‘Palestinians’ and the PLO would retain based on this ‘deal’ are within easy shooting distance of some of these Jewish communities. These attacks on Jewish communities are even actually happening now in Judea and Samaria.
Second, Israel is being asked to give any ‘Palestinians’ living in these areas Israeli citizenship.
 
True there aren’t that many of them, but would Trump and the US give citizenship automatically to people who had been brain washed to hate America for three generations? People who may conceivably have blood on their hands? People who in many cases have citizenship in a country that has a ‘treaty’ which is basically a cease fire and which still is extremely hostile to America? That’s exactly the situation between Israel and Jordan. There have been numerous instances when ‘Palestinians’ given work permits in Israel have committed terrorism.
Third, the map lines as now drawn simply give the ‘Palestinians’ a closer range to shoot from. Several of the Israeli communities we’re talking about would be easy targets.
And finally, Fourth,the object here, ‘peace’ between Israel and the PLO is a non-starter.They’re not interested in peace and they never have been. It’s that simple.And both the Trump Administration and Israel’s current government are fooling themselves if they think this means peace with the PLO and Hamas.
Allow me to present a way to actually achieve peace that will definitely work and end this once and for all.

And the irony of it is that it could have been done years ago.

In the Six Day War, Jordan attacked Israel. The IDF pushed the Jordanian troops back across the river. At that time, they could easily have sent the ‘Palestinians’ who all had Jordanian citizenship back across the Jordan River as well, and this entire mess would have been avoided. However, Israel’s Labor government made a mess of things. They made the mistake of thinking these Arabs would be able to live in peace with them, and it turned out to be a huge mistake.

The Israelis built virtually the entire infrastructure in Judea and Samaria….the power grid, the water systems, schools, houses, roads, sewage, irrigation,hospitals, even a university. Their reward of course was that first Intifada. They definitely should have seen that coming.

The way to finally solve this problem is to do what should have been down back in 1967. Simply move the Arabs who call themselves ‘Palestinians’ across the river, perhaps with cash settlements for people who can actually prove they purchased and own property. This is certainly more than the Arabs gave the almost one million Jews they ethnically cleansed from the Arab world after 1948. They plundered them for everything they had and these Jews left with the clothes on their backs.

Jordan of course would not like this but there’s not much they could do about it, especially since they have already agreed to abandon all claim to Judea and Samaria. Jordan’s midget King Abdullah would also be upset because many of these people tend to cause problems where ever they go…Iraq, Kuwait,Lebanon, Egypt and yes, Jordan, which Arafat almost took over in 1970’s Black September.

Odd, isn’t it? All refugees are supposedly taken care of by UNHCR(also known as the UN Refugee Agency) except one…the almost 1 million penniless Jews ethnically cleansed by the Arab world in1948.Most of them ended up living in tent cities in Israel.  They never received a dime except from Jewish charities. President Trump, to his credit, mentioned this in his peace plan, although without actually suggesting any, kind of payback by the countries involved in stealing well over a billion and a half dollars US in property, homes, businesses, bank accounts and personal property according to the most conservative estimates.
Oh, but wait, there’s another group the UNHCR doesn’t handle They’re handled by one of the UN’s biggest and well funded sections,  UNRWA which is solely devoted to the care and welfare of these alleged ‘Palestinian’ refugees many who left willingly under orders from the Arab States attacking Israel and their leader, Haj Amin al-Husseini. Except these refugees were never refugees at all! In 1954, the Jordanian Parliament gave Jordanian citizenship to all of them including the ones in the UNRWA facilities. And even UNRWA’s first American Chief Executive to the US Congress admitted that since they didn’t bother checking, many of these ‘refugees might never have lived in ‘Palestine’ at all, but were given food, lodging etc anyway. And unlike any other group of refugees, the train just keeps on rolling.
 
These people supposedly ‘fled ‘ from Israel 72 years ago but the UN makes sure their refugee status is hereditary! No other group of refugees gets this kind of gravy train. Could it be because they picked the right enemies, the Jews?
I have to give President Trump credit for finally ending US funding of UNRWA. Among other things, UNRWA’s schools teach ‘Palestinian’ kids to hate Jews and that terrorism against Jews is a holy act that will make them ‘holy martyrs’ as Abbas calls them.  UNRWA has even been caught hiding terrorists and arms in their schools, Mosques and other buildings.
In short, Jordan is the Arab ‘Palestinian’ State and the Jordan River the logical and legal boundary between that and Israel. It’s time Israel realized  this, instead of wasting time with so called peace plans that have never and will never work.
It’s time Israel faced reality, nochon habibim?
