As It Goes for Israel...

The Annapolis conference, if successful in terms of finalizing plans for a two-state solution to the Israeli - Palestinian conflict, will jeopardize Israel’s prospects for survival and pave the way for the emergence of another deadly terrorist state. Perhaps, the myopic architects of this ill-conceived initiative simply failed to comprehend the long-term consequences of their plans. Perhaps, their intentions and motivations were such that they didn’t. In any case, not only Israel but America has much to lose if agreements forge ahead as planned.
The State of Israel, from its very founding, was known for its rigid stance of refusing to negotiate with terrorists, period. Israeli Prime Minister Olmert’s “peace at any cost” initiative not only undermines this basic premise but is Chamberlainesque at best, devoid of logic, and ignores the bloody lessons of history. According to the plan, it is Israel that makes all the concessions by relinquishing its rights to Eastern Jerusalem and the West Bank - meaning the biblical territories of Judea and Samaria. As a pre-summit good-will gesture, Olmert consented to freeing over 400 Palestinian terrorists with no discussion regarding the fate and /or release of Israeli soldiers being held captive.
To top it off, Olmert approved the transfer of armored vehicles, rifles and ammunition to the Palestinian authority – a decision that was condemned by both Shin Bet Security Forces and the IDF. The entire package is being offered, by Israel, in exchange for nothing more than a promise of peace! As drafted, this skewed agreement certainly begs the question as to how Israel’s purported peace partner, Mahmoud Abbas, is expected to hold up his end of the bargain in light of the threat posed, to his governance, by Hamas.
According to Hamas spokesmen, it will only be a matter of time before they seize control of the West Bank, as they did Gaza, and secure those weapons slated for transfer to the Palestinian Authority. The realization of Hamas’ ambitions would place key Israeli cities in harm’s way. As if the Iranian nuclear threat and Hezbollah’s entrenchment to the north weren’t enough for Israel to contend with, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem would now fall within rocket range of Hamas-controlled territories.
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has far less to do with territorial disputes than it does with bringing about the destruction of Israel and genocide against the Jewish people. Arguably, it is only Israel that craves a long-standing peace with its neighbors. The Palestinian leadership’s primary objective is to satisfy their Islamist brethren by annihilating the Jewish state.
Regardless of Condi Rice’s recent statements, Hamas is not a resistance movement but a ruthless terrorist organization that’s responsible for leaving hundreds of maimed and dead innocents in its wake. As evidenced by its very Charter, Hamas will never recognize Israel’s legitimacy, calls for the murder of innocent Jews, and poses a significant threat to the West. Few Americans are aware of the threat that Hamas poses to our way of life. Even fewer know that charitable American organizations such as the Lions Club, Rotary Club and Free Masons have been targeted for destruction by Hamas.
Hamas, aka the Islamic Resistance Movement, was initially established as a wing of the Muslim Brotherhood or Ikhwan – a secretive, sinister society with far reaching tentacles. In fact, most Islamic terrorist groups including al Qaeda were seeded by the Muslim Brotherhood. The Ikhwan, with an established presence in over 70 countries, has targeted the world, including Israel, Europe and the United States, for Islamic conquest and domination. Their mission is to establish a Muslim Caliphate in servitude to their moon god. A partial list of known degenerates radicalized by the Ikhwan would include Osama bin Laden’s deputy, Ayman Zawahiri: the blind Sheik who was convicted for his role in the 1993 WTC bombing, Omar Abdel Rahman; and the architect of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheik Mohammed.
The Brotherhood’s stated approach to conquering the United States is through dawah – Islamic renewal and outreach. Their program titled, ‘Ikhwan in America’ details a 20-point plan though which they intend to replace our Republic with an Islamist state ruled by Sharia law. A key excerpt of the plan reads: The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist process’. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western Civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.
Covertly, through its network of affiliated organizations, the Brotherhood sponsors camps that promote paramilitary training – that’s right, they provide survival classes and weapons training to their loyal followers on own soil - thereby, honing the destructive skills of those intending to do us grievous harm through violent Jihad. As a case in point, another radical wing of the Brotherhood, the Muslim Students Association or MSA has established branches on hundreds of college campuses across America. Thousands of Saudi funded, hate-infused mosques across North America were constructed due to their efforts. The National MSA’s online journal (publication #17) instructs its student members to learn survival skills and secure firearms training. The directive goes on to state that if such training is unavailable, in their particular location, or cost prohibitive, Muslim students should take up paintball which it advocates as an excellent way to learn about combat. It’s far from coincidence that the Virginia Jihad Network, the 7/7 London bombers and many other terrorist cells have conducted paramilitary training with paintball.
Due to blackouts and the deliberate manipulation of the facts by mainstream media outlets, the majority of Americans have been kept in the dark with respect to the Islamist threat. Additionally, our citizenry has been deceived by Washington’s embrace of Islam as being a religion of peace. Characterizing Islam as the religion of rest in peace would be far more fitting. Federal Law enforcement agencies have also contributed greatly to widespread ignorance, of the subject matter, by reclassifying numerous terrorist attacks that we’ve suffered as being something other than jihadi-inspired. In the long run, our politically-correct posturing coupled with widespread apathy will cost us dearly for our societal infrastructure has already been infiltrated, by our enemies, to a degree far beyond Joseph Goebbels’s wildest expectations.
It’s time for our government set the record straight. Classifying the current war as one against terrorism is a misnomer at best. We are actually engaged in a struggle against a religious ideology with political aspirations. Terrorism is nothing more than an effective tool employed to undermine the resolve of civilized nations. Our deadly enemy might be fixated with a 7th century mentality but it is armed with the latest technology and most sophisticated implements of warfare.
Since 9/11, over 10,060 terrorist attacks against innocents have been reported. All of which have involved Islam. Islamic-inspired violence transcends all international borders. From Kashmir to the Sudan, from Indonesia to Argentina, from Chechnya to France and from the Balkans to Australia; one would be hard pressed to find a major conflict, war, or act of aggression that doesn’t involve Islam. This, in itself, serves as undeniable proof that the abhorrent behavior is not linked to an underlying hatred of the West, the United States or Israel.
The realization that a major world religion would support the long-term geo-political objectives of ruthless terrorist organizations – in particular, by advocating world domination through violent conquest and / or genocide against those of other faiths, is troubling at best.
For decades, the State of Israel has served us well – both as testing ground for high-tech weaponry and as the proverbial canary in our coal mine. The two-state solution being proposed at today’s summit will render Israel defenseless in the face of our common enemies – something that we’d certainly live to regret.
To quote the “Presidential Medal of Freedom” award winning author Eric Hoffer:
“We can rely more on Israel than Israel can rely on us… I have the premonition that will not leave me: as it goes for Israel so will it go with all of us. Should Israel Perish, the holocaust will be upon us.”
Knesset member Benny Elon recently introduced a far more viable plan for bringing long-term peace to the region. His “Israeli Initiative” calls for dissolving the Palestinian Authority, dismantling the refuge camps and having Jordan grant citizenship status to Arabs remaining in the West Bank. Israel would extend its sovereignty over Judea and Samaria. Those Palestinians currently living in the refuge camps would be provided with rehabilitation packages and an opportunity to move to outside countries. Agency relief would be available to assist the emigrants with resettlement and employment.
