Israel Palestine Issue


After three consecutive nights of Israeli security forces raiding the Al Aqsa Mosque to stop Palestinians from accessing the Old City during prayers of the holy month of Ramadan. In retaliation, the Hamas group has launched more than 1,000 rockets on 10 May into Israel which resulted in thousands of casualties.

The conflict between Israel and Palestine has raged on for generations and the fighting we see in 2021 is born of more than 100 years of struggle. It is often referred to as the world’s most intractable conflict is rooted in a dispute over land claimed by Jews as their biblical birthright and by the Palestinians, who seek self-determination. Despite repeated attempts to end the conflict between the two countries, there is no peace settlement in sight. As it is a very controversial issue I would say, the facts I will be providing here are based on historical facts only. As you have seen in the picture, these types of conflicts negatively affect the human and especially the child right.

How did it starts??

There was the rule of the Ottoman empire in the area since the fourteenth century. The area was important due to the presence of a passage from Europe to Asia through the “Suez Canal.” After the Ottoman Empire was defeated in World War I Britain took control of the area known as Palestine under the Sykes-Picot Agreement, the area was occupied by Arab Majority and Jews Minority.

The Jews have been persecuted throughout history due to their religious beliefs and foreign culture. To help the Jews people, international community tasked Britain with setting up a “national home” for Jewish people in Palestine through the Balfour declaration. The same land was claimed as their historical lands by both the Jews and Palestinians.

In 1897 the Jews started a movement called a Zionist movement to escape persecution and establish their state in their ancestral homeland, Israel. The movement later got international reach and was termed as World Zionist Organization. During the 1920 to 1940s, many Jewish people fled to Palestine by escaping the persecution and the atrocities of Hitler’s Holocaust. It incited the Arab population living there, and we witness the start of the conflict between Jews, Arabs, and the Britishers.

You could see here, how the land of Arab nation Palestine is reduce to small patches of land with time.

The fight between Israel and Palestine

In 1947, the UN voted to split the land into two countries at British request. Jewish people accepted the agreement and declared the independence of Israel. Under the plan, the land was to be split into separate Jewish and Arabs states. Jerusalem, a holy land for both would become an international city. Jewish leaders embraced the plan, but the Arab leaders’ didn’t.

The partition of land under The Two State Theory by United Nations

In 1948 the Britishers left after realizing that the problem couldn’t be solved by them, and the Jewish leaders created the “State of Israel” backed by the then US president Harry S. Truman. The declaration was not acceptable to Palestinians a war broke out by neighboring Arab countries including Jordon, Egypt, Iraq, and Syria on Israel. The war was catastrophic for Palestinians hundred and thousands fled. The continuous fight was advantageous for Israel, and it now controls most of the land. However, there was never a peace agreement, but the blame game persists.

It was the beginning of the Palestine refugee crisis which ultimately led to the creation of PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) in 1964 a terrorist organization. More importantly “in the Six-day war” in 1967, the Arabs attacked Israel, but the result was in favor of Israel. The Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt; West Bank, and East Jerusalem from Jordan; and Golan Heights from Syria were captured by Israel. Most Palestinian refugees and their descendants live in the Gaza strip and the West Bank were not allowed to return their homes. These lands are recognized as occupied territories by the UN.

Israel Pre-War 1967 Boundaries Map

Jerusalem was one of the holiest lands on Earth for Christians, Jews, and Muslims. However, Israel claims the whole city as its capital. Palestine claims East Jerusalem as the capital of its future state.

For the past 50 years, Israel has built settlements in Jerusalem, more than 600,000 Jews now live there. Although, the Palestinians consider them illegal under international law. There have been numerous attempts to resolve over the decades since 1979. In 1993, under the Oslo Accord, the leaders of Palestinians and Israeli met to negotiate on the “two-state solutions” with the mediation of the US and Russia with no positive results.

The tension escalated with Israel’s increased settlement in West Bank and Gaza Strip. The result was First Intifada, in 1987 with a boycott of Israeli products, jobs, etc resulted in massive Israeli economic destruction. In 2000, a more violent Palestine Uprising killed a large number of civilians to death on both sides. This is known as the Second intifada. As a defensive measure, Israel constructed a West Bank Barrier wall and separated Israel and Palestine settlements. Still, Israel is continuously pushing to settle Jews settlers to the West Bank which is changing the demography with prevalent human right violations in Palestine.

New era of Fatah and Hamas

The Palestinian divided themselves into two groups i.e. the Fatah and Hamas. The Fatah accept Oslo accord, were found under Yasir Arafat is the largest Palestinian political faction. It is a secular movement, has nominally recognized Israel, and has actively participated in the peace process. The Hamas (Islamic Militant group) for the liberation of Palestine through Jihad came into existence. It refused to recognize Israel as a country. It has received support from Iran and Syria. Despite numerous reconciliation efforts over the past 15 years, rifts have remained.

The tensions between the groups have dominated Palestinian politics since 2006. After an armed conflict between the two factions and the failure of an attempted unity government, the Palestinian leadership has been divided since 2007. Damascus Gate is one of the main entrances to Jerusalem’s Old City, and a popular meeting place for Palestinians, especially during Ramadan after the evening prayer that triggers problems.

The Palestinians want Israel to withdraw to pre-1967 and establish independent Palestine state in West Bank and Gaza. Israel should stop the era of expansion of settlements and allow Palestine refugees to return back to there homes. However, the Israel want sovereignty over Jerusalem as a capital of a Jewish State.

The issue and the world

The US has been a significant mediator, with more Jews population than Israel, which have significant control over US media and economy. Hence, the US has also prevented the observer status to Palestine in the UN. However, the Obama administration allowed the UN to pass a resolution that declared Israel’s growing settlements in the occupied territories illegal, and had also blocked resolutions criticizing Israel by using its veto power in the UN Security Council. With the new presidency regime under Trump, who is more inclined to Israel, the illegal settlements by Israel in West Bank and Gaza are increasing. In 2018, the Trump administration canceled funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency, which provides aid to Palestinian refugees, and relocated the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a reversal of a longstanding U.S. policy.

India opposes the UN’s partition plan in 1947, however it recognizes Israel in 1950 but it also recognizes the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) as the sole representative of the Palestinian. It also recognizes the statehood of Palestine in 1988. In 2014, India favored UNHRC’s resolution to probe Israel’s human rights violations in Gaza. Despite supporting the probe, India abstained from voting against Israel in UNHRC IN 2015. India has tried to maintain the image of its historical moral support for Palestinian self-determination, and at the same time to engage in military, economic, and other strategic relations with Israel.

Nearly 83% of countries have officially recognized Israel as a sovereign state and maintain diplomatic relations. However, at the same time are sympathetic to Palestine.

Way Forward

In August and September 2020, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and then Bahrain agreed to normalize their relations with Israel by following the steps of Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994. The world at large needs to come together for a peaceful solution however, the reluctance of the Israeli government and other involved parties has aggravated the issue. A balanced approach towards the issue would help to maintain favorable relations which are required for the wellbeing of people on both sides.

  1. Russian Press Condemns Israel. Israel has yet to commit ground troops to Gaza.

    UN chief ‘deeply disturbed’ by civilian casualties & IDF bombing of Gaza media building. Eva Bartlett, a Canadian independent journalist and activist declares: “The destruction of two important Gaza buildings housing 20 media outlets was both shocking and predictable.” According to her unbiased speculations, this Arabist declares the purpose and intent of bringing down these two buildings – “Israel is deliberately obliterating media buildings in Gaza to cover up the war crimes that will follow.” However, this Arabist concedes the key point that Israel gave the inhabitants of in both buildings both warning and time to evacuate the premises to avoid civilian casualties. Interesting Gaza leadership has fired thousands of missiles at Israeli populated cities, has never given any warning what so ever … but Israel, (that Pariah State), will in the future, commit war crime atrocities!

    An Israeli military spokesman told the media that the tower was targeted because it housed “Hamas military intelligence.” Hamas uses “civilian media” as “human shields,” the IDF also said in a statement on Twitter. The Palestinian militant group “deliberately places its military assets in the heart of the civilian population in the Gaza Strip,” the post added. Yet the Russian Arabist Press gave priority to Eva Bartlett’s evil eye of the Jewish State’s response to stateless Arab refugees firing missiles into Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and targeting, with their missiles, most of the populated cities across Israel – Israel, that tiny speck of a country. The Arabist Russian Press Head Lines: Israeli airstrike levels Gaza tower housing AP, Al Jazeera & other international media.

    Clearly foreign imperialist governments seek to promote their agenda: to divide the tiny Jewish state. Jesus son of Zeus once taught: (divide and conquer), a nation divided against itself cannot stand. These foreign jackal nations, in all their innocence and piety, seek to promote Civil War within Israel. It means nothing to these hostile powers, who dub themselves – ‘the Quartet’, that 57 Arab and Muslim countries cover the Middle East, Africa and the former Soviet Union empire.

    No they demand that Israel, about the size of New Jersey, MUST surrender the miraculous victory of the 1967 Six Day War. That only then can peace bless the Middle East! Interesting, Arab control of these recaptured territories which Israel reconquered, prior to that short war, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia fought 2 previous wars against Israel – with the objective – to obliterate the Jewish state. President of Egypt, Nasser, promised prior to the June war of ’67, that Arabs would in this war accomplish what they failed to achieve in 1948, to throw the Jews into the Sea, and thereby complete the Nazi Holocaust.

      1. Palestine its a European term. Arabs of the Middle East can not pronounce the letter P!!!! No land of Palestine ever existed. The British Mandate awarded by the post WWl created League of Nations to Britain originally included the lands of the divided ‘Ottoman Greater Syria province’ … present day countries of Iraq, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Israel!!!! You going to call that “Palestine”?!

        By the terms of the Sykes-Picot secret Treaty of 1916, the French empire took as their spoils of war the lands of Lebanon and Syria. While Britain took as their spoils of war of the partitioned territories of Ottoman Greater Syria: Iraq, Jordan and Israel! No nation of Palestine ever existed in all of human history!!! The imaginary state of Palestine has neither Capital nor Currency!!!!

      2. It’s my birthday. As a present, would like to introduce how my Rav taught me how to learn the T’NaCH combined with the Talmud.

        Isaiah speaks almost like poety. The Books of Tehillem\psalms likewise for the same reason – very difficult to read in the original Hebrew. However, my rav had me read 18 chapters of T’NaCH every day, finished it every 51 days. The Torah, its broken down due to the Shabbot Readings, each Parsha has 7 aliyot (people called up to read from the Torah on Shabbot), each day would read all the first, or second, or third etc., aliyot respectively within the whole of the Torah. Hence would completely read the Torah every 49 days.

        In this manner I learned Hebrew. Then Rav Aaron directed me apply this same technique to the Aramaic targum (translations). Within a year could read the T’NaCH & the Aramaic like as if it existed on par with English news papers. The precise goal which Rav Nemuraskii set for me to achieve. Rav Nemuraskii, only thereafter formally introduced me to the Midrashim. During my cycle of reading T’NaCH, learned together with Rav Nemuraskii, together with other talmidim, hilchot shabbot from the Misnah Bruer (a 20th Century commentary on the Shulkan Aruch … a commentary on the Arbah Turim). The author of the Tur, the son of the Rosh. The Rosh one of the greatest Talmudic scholars in all of Western European g’lut\exile.

        The first time Rav Nemuraskii and myself sat and learned the Talmud Bavli (a 20 volume code), we completed it in about 4 months. Cycling through the Sha’s (Six orders to the Mishna) Bavli (Babylonian Talmud), would learn approximately 20 pages every day. The Bavli, its based upon common law. Common law learns by way of precedents. Therefore by cycling through the Sha’s Bavli, completed the reading cycle, as said above, in about 4 months. In this fashion, fairly quickly familiarized myself with the Cases contained in the whole of the Sha’s Bavli. Cycling through the Sha’s, after about 4 to 5 years of this, only then did thereafter did Rav Nemuraskii demand that i learn each page of Gemarah (the commentary to the Mishna) by bringing precedents, duplicating the style of how the Gemarah learns the Mishna.

        At that time started exploring how the classic Reshonim (950 – 1450 CE) learned Gemarah. The Baali Tosafot (about 60 scholars in total, the grand children of Rashi), the French school of Talmudic scholarship, they learned by way of comparing outside precedents. When the Tosafot went off the dof\page of Gemarah/immediately familiar with the precedent that the Tosafot commentary introduced, to compare this outside halachah case to that of current dof of Gemarah which Rav Nemuraskii and myself learned. Needless to say, of all the Reshonim scholars, the Baali Tosafot hands down my favorite.

        Then came the B’hag, Rif, Rosh halachic commentaries. If a person understands that the Bavli exists as a common law legal system, then and only then do these halachic commentaries reveal their absolute genius. Common law compares legal Case rulings/halachot to a specific Case\Rule Mishna — something like a mamma bird chased after and followed by her chicks. The Talmud employs a Difficulty\Answer style throughout the Sha’s Bavli. It does not decide which of the “tens” of outside precedents by which it compares halachot to a specific case rule Mishna. The halachic codes made by the B’hag, Rif, & Rosh halachic commentaries – these Great poskim\deciders/, by their authority they reduced from multiple 10s to single digits the compared halachot woven into the context of the Case\Rule Mishnah. Their codes of law decided the chosen precedents which Torah observant Jewry should attempt to self-actualize in their daily lives.

        But by reducing the Gemarah precedents, they made it much easier to understand how the Gemarah logically compares outside halachic cases to any given specific Case\Rule Mishna. To learn these classic codes require comparing the halachic rulings which the Codes decide to the language of the Mishna; to thereby make a depth analysis of the language of the specific Case\Rule Mishna. That’s why these code always include the specified Mishna to the designated halachot, drastically reduced in number, and removal of all difficulty\answer debates. The Great codes, their scholarship compares something like an editor cuts and pastes & reduces news copy. Its the discipline of comparing halachic rulings to a specific Case\Rule Mishna which permits scholars to more easily discern the depth parameters which the language of that specific Case\Rule Mishna communicates. These Great halachic codifications permitted, so to speak, a student to more easily ‘see the forest through the trees’.

        However just as a garment woven on a loom has a warp\weft opposing threads, even though these tremendous tohor halachic codes did not bring any Aggaditah, students properly instructed understand Aggaditah, its relationship with the T’NaCH, as the most essential requirement whereby to understand the Case\Rule Mishna. Aggaditah learns T’NaCH prophetic mussar, it most essentially defines the “substance” of k’vanna, the tohor spirits of middot, which the Aggadic stories within the Sha’s {breath} into the Halachic”forms” of ritualized Jewish halachic law.

        Aggaditah makes comparisons to the sugiot\sub chapters/ of the T’NaCH, like what the sages of the Gemarah brings outside halachot, wherein the Amoraim scholars made legal comparisons to the Case\Rule Mishna. Consequently the Talmud, in my limited experience, by far the most complex text ever penned. The warp\woof relationship in the Talmud … the Aggadic\Halachic threads which make up the Sha’s Bavli and Sha’s Yerushalmi, they weave T’NaCH and Talmud into a unified fabric of faith.

        Then struck the defining disaster experienced by g’lut Jewry across Europe and the Middle East. The Rambam published his halachic code of Jewish law. Thereafter g’lut Jewry confused the priority rule of logic over law. This most basic priority rule, the B’hag, Rif, Rosh codes emphatically obeyed. Alas the Rambam halachic code, like a whore in church, it cast this most emphatic priority ie logic primary, and law secondary … that tumah code, it cast this absolute, most essential priority, unto the dumpster. Jews, almost overnight, lost the wisdom, how to correctly learn the Talmud.

        This terrible disaster, publication of the Rambam halachic code, which prioritized halachic law as supreme, it prioritized\supplanted/substituted\ assimilated Greek Aristotelian logic over Rabbi Akiva’s פרדס explanation of the Oral Torah logic format – first revealed to Moshe the prophet at Horev on Yom Kippur!

        A huge Civil War erupted, all the Gemarahs of France burned; Jewish exile communities in Britain, France, across the Germanic kingdoms, Spain, Portugal — basically all Western European Jewry — expelled from those countries. This Civil War terminated the period of Reshon scholarship upon the T’NaCH and Talmud. The Goyim, especially in the Germanic kingdoms imposed crushing taxation without representation upon Jewish refugee populations. After these feudal lords sponged virtually all Jewish wealth – these now totally destitute refugee populations – the German kingdoms expelled those despised Jewish paupers – from off their lands.

        The Church jumped upon the nigger pile, Rome decreed that any Jewish refugee living in Western Europe, that these despised Christ killers must consent to live within locked Ghetto prison walls. These illegal and unjust decrees, did not collapse till American revolutionaries told king George where he could put his taxation without representation, and Napoleon conquered those despicable Western European countries. Napoleon freed imprisoned Jewry from the 300 year wicked, unjust, and utterly insane unilateral imprisonment of Jewish refugees; never permitted to stand trial; nor permitted to challenge the evil slander made by their accusers. Why do English cars drive on the other side of the road? Alas, Napoleon did not conquer Britain like he did Western Europe.

        Faced with the choice of Ghetto imprisonment without a trial or fleeing to Eastern European countries like Poland and the Ukraine, millions of Jewish stateless refugees fled unto Eastern Europe. The ירידות הדורות curse, expressed itself thereafter, through the many and famous commentaries made upon the Shulchan Aruch; Yidden in the Pale of Russia had lost their ability, our wisdom, to correctly learn the Talmud. The Czars of Russia, even attempted to replace the Talmud with the Rambam code, as the basis for the education of Jewish youth. Then came the two European Civil Wars in the 20th Century, and those Europeans revealed the true worth of 2000+ years of Church morality.

        Guardian angel – 1864 – hymnsandchants.com https://www.hymnsandchants.com/Texts/Fiat/Saints/1002GuardianAngel.pdf

        [[[“””The belief that angels can be guides and intercessors for men can be found in Job 33:23-6, and in the Daniel 10:13 angels seem to be assigned to certain countries. In this latter case, the “prince of the Persian kingdom” contends with Gabriel. The same verse mentions “Michael, one of the chief princes”….”””]]]

        The latter Holy Writings bases itself upon HaShem, who issued a command to Moshe the prophet, by the command of HaShem – that the “angel” Moshe travel to Egypt and Par’o to free Israel from bondage. Another early Prophetic source, the Book of Yehoshua, at the oath sworn brit cut @ Gilgal, conducted in the presence of an “Angel”; the oath sworn unto the revealed Name – the first Sinai commandment – that רוח הקודש tohor middot would for ever live within the hearts of the People, who just sanctified tohor middot dedicated through the mitzvah of brit melah unto HaShem. Specifically that HaShem war against the Gods\Guardian Angels/ worshiped by the kingdoms of Canaan; just as did HaShem war, through the plagues, which judged the Gods\Guardian Angels/ worshiped by Egypt and Par’o.

        The fathers of the early Church chose to divorce the Xtian faith from Judaism. Throughout this period and beyond, the Church condemned Jews as cursed Christ Killers. What Guardian Angel did Lord JeZeus assign to fallen Israel – other than Satan himself?

        [[[“””Thomas Aquinas agreed with Honorius and believed that it was the lowest order of angels who served as guardians, and his view was most successful in popular thought, but Duns Scotus said that any angel is bound by duty, authority and obedience to the Divine Authority to accept the mission to which that angel is assigned. In the 15th century, the Feast of the Guardian Angels was added to the official calendar of Catholic holidays.”””]]]

        Known as the paschal mystery, this theology argues that JeZeus saves the church from the “fires of hell”. This bi-polar faith very much compares to Zoroastrianism. It seems to me that the משל of Angels, requires its necessary נמשל דיוק. The inference drawn, HaShem affixes a destiny path walk unto the people of the Cohen nation by means of Angelic ambassadors. Something like Yaacov sending “Angels” unto his brother Esua. (דברים לב:ח) seems to support this premise.

        Mohammad based the revelation of the Koran upon the interaction of a ‘Guardian Angel’. Xtian mysticism too tells of mystics who conducted protracted dialogues with their respective guardian angle(s). Alas, reliance upon ‘guardian angels’, just an excuse for sloppy scholarship. The scholarship of the assimilated kabbalist Yosef Karo, it stands at the top of this list. The sages permanently sealed the T’NaCH\Talmud/Siddur to prevent this ‘appeal to some unknown higher authority’ – narisheit. The sealed Masoret in Bava Metzia 59א-ב, includes an Aggadic mussar story, known as the Oven of Akhnai. According to the Talmud, a heavenly voice, a tree, a nearby stream, and the walls of the house of study all agreed with Eliezer’s interpretation. The sages responded by placing the ban of charem upon Eliezer ben Hurcanus, one of the great instructors of Rabbi Akiva.

        Blood Libel: The Conspiracy Theory That Jews Are ‘Anti-Human’ https://news.yahoo.com/blood-libel-conspiracy-theory-jews-103052553.html

        Anti-Semitism has many exceptional qualities; unlike most forms of racism, it represents a conspiracy theory. Many conspiracy theories, make a search for the Devil, or for the Devil’s agents on this earth. Jewish refugee populations, scattered across Europe, Christians imagined them, not as an exploited and despised underclass, but as a preternaturally powerful elite Christ-Killer, that enslaves and destroys humankind. The anti-Semite “punches up” at these Jewish refugees who had no rights, as guilty of all human suffering, who close at hand with the Devil, and seal of the road to deliverance from oppression.

        Despite racism’s lethality, the form known as anti-Semitism most often erased, excused, and even encouraged by people, the priests of the Catholic and Protestant churches, who publicly identify themselves as “antiracist.” One post WWII explanation for this increasingly dangerous phenomenon, its expressions of harassment, vandalism, and violence against Jews across the West, the failure of Holocaust education to emphasize the importance of conspiracism played in Nazi ideology & propaganda. For their part, the not so distant ‘American anti-racists’ render Jews “white” and “privileged” through a limited lens of race and power, taking an approach that represents a political allotrope (According to Michael Fertik, allotrope: “long enough for a reader to inhabit a world or a consciousness.”) of anti-Semitism and disqualifies Jews from concern.

        So when U.S. representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar resolved to visit Israel in August to showcase to the world its peculiar evil, and it emerged that Miftah, the Palestinian non-governmental organization co-sponsoring their trip, had published on its website that Jews bake Christian blood into their matzoh, most major media ignored it. For them this trivial story besmirched the good name of ‘liberal democracy’. The erosion of liberal democracy, attacked by the tag team of Trump and Netanyahu, who barred entry to these congresswomen to Israel. Little indication that the blood libel stirred concern on the left where just a month earlier “Never again” was intoned relentlessly about Trump’s Mexican “concentration camps” at the border.

        That omission, really quite striking. The ‘Blood libel’ the most vile expression of Jew-hatred throughout history. To overlook the recent Miftah ‘blood libel’, not only ignored a spectacular instance of bigotry; the liberal left, allies of Hillary Clinton, made itself oblivious to anti-Semitism. The blood libel sits at a apex place in the persecution of Jewish refugee populations. It exemplifies anti-Semitism’s worst exceptional quality of hatred without cause. Most types of racism define their victims as an “other” in relation to the group and regard them as less than human. Anti-Semitism, like all conspiracy theories, marks its target as an “other” in relation to humanity and regards the target as anti-human.

        This dynamic has been present since the beginning of Western civilization. In his book Europe’s Inner Demons, the historian Norman Cohn demonstrates that by the second century a popular “fantasy” had emerged that civilization was threatened by a secret society “addicted to practices which were felt to be wholly abominable.” Of course, xenophobia has always assumed the existence of in-groups and out-groups. Generally, out-groups are opposed to in-groups through stereotypes that suggest the inferiority of the former. Ancient Greeks, for example, regarded various foreign peoples as childlike babblers. Romans thought their Jewish subjects smelled bad — a prejudice that survived in Europe long after the Empire fell.

        Conspiracist xenophobia uses stereotypes that suggest much more — a set of behaviors, terrible and extranormal, of which only anti-human conspirators, their alliance with the Devil, makes them capable. These include cannibalism, atrocious sexual practices such as incest and pedophilia, and the sexualized worship of monstrous gods. These anti-humans perform their secret Kabbalah Rituals in clandestine ceremonies. At the center this heinous circle of a Christian child, typically a young boy, murdered and consumed for purposes of cursing the Christian Church.

        Ritual murder was a “stock charge” in the ancient world. Dio Cassius accused three separate cabals — the Cataline conspirators and Egyptians and Alexandrian Jews in revolt against Rome — of sacrificing a boy and eating his entrails to inaugurate their plots for power. The Greek grammarian Apion applied the canard against all Jews. In 177 the Romans martyred believers near present-day Lyons, torturing their pagan slaves into corroborating familiar rumors — that their Christian masters were an incest cult who sacrificed and devoured children.

        After Christianity was established as the state religion of the Roman Empire in the fourth century, those lurid fantasies simmered underground for the better part of a millennium. Meanwhile, Christians refined their theology of combat between the forces of good and the forces of evil: between God and Satan, between Christ and Antichrist, and between the righteous people and the demonic people who served as their agents on earth. In that morally supercharged xenophobia, Satan was attached to groups set apart as the “other.” The scope of the anti-human conspiracy became cosmic.

        While Christian heretics and women thought to be witches would suffer unimaginably from this association, the Jews were destined to reap the worst of it in the form of the Holocaust. (The word alludes, with the grimmest irony, to a “burnt offering.”) Various passages of the New Testament were read as confirmation of the idea of Jewish guilt for killing Christ and of Jewish communion with the Devil.

        In the medieval mind, the association between Jews and the Devil grew. Shortly before Easter in 1144, a young boy named William was found dead in the sallow grass of a heath near the lively center of Norwich, England. His body, stripped naked save for a jacket and shoes, showed signs of violence. He had been gagged with a piece of wood. Despairing relatives accused local Jews of the crime, but the charge didn’t take. Five years later, a Benedictine monk hoping to establish a local cult spun the rumors into a tale of ritual murder.

        The myth of little William spread, partly because it met a subterranean need we all share: to explain and dramatize terrible events that happen for mysterious or mundane reasons. Over the next hundred years, copycat claims arose throughout Europe. Yet the mature blood accusation — that Jews ritually murder Christians to harvest their blood for Passover — wouldn’t become standard until the 14th century. The thinking about Jews and blood needed to develop before it might make emotional sense.

        Christians in the Middle Ages regarded Jews as sorcerers, allied with demons. Little distinction was made between magic and medicine. When the charges of ritual murder were spreading, Jews were widely thought to suffer from peculiar maladies, many of which caused blood loss: hemorrhages, hemorrhoids, quinsy, scrofula, skin diseases, purulent sores; Jewish men were said to menstruate along with women, and Jewish babies to be born with one hand fixed to their foreheads, requiring surgery to detach. The recipes of medieval magic often focused on sickness and health, and sometimes they called for blood or body parts. Jews were assumed to need non-Jewish blood to be well. Christian life and Jewish life were literally held to be inversely related.

        The effect of such fantasies was demonstrated in 1475 when a little boy named Simon went missing in Trent. Local Jews were seized and tortured into confessing that they ritually slaughtered him and drained his blood. Many were burned alive. Blood had become the preferred motif for expressing what medieval Christians conceived of as a parasitical Jewish project to destroy their civilization. While the Nazi movement thought itself superior to Christianity, it imported wholesale the idea of the Jews as the Devil’s agents, coupled to the anti-human stereotype that was embodied by the medieval blood libel. Rumors of blood libel and incidents related to it recurred in Europe until even after the Nazi surrender.

        In the blood-libel piece posted on the Miftah site in 2013, President Obama was said to have held an imprudent Passover seder at the White House, where he enjoyed “Jewish cuisine” that was likely prepared with the blood of Christians. Under intense criticism, Miftah eventually retracted and apologized, but the medieval pitch of the piece was so true that I browsed their website for similar material and quickly found an article by Bouthaina Shaaban, who is now Bashar Assad’s media adviser. There Shaaban writes that Israel stole “Ukrainian children in order to harvest their organs.” The blood libel was transferred to the Arab world by Christian missionaries, surfacing in a famous case at Damascus in 1840. Today it is a recurring feature of Arab and Muslim anti-Semitism.

        It would be a mistake to think that the phenomenon as it exists today is exclusively a Middle Eastern vice. As in the ancient world, the blood libel and other canards about the anti-human can be applied to any enemy. In the Pizzagate affair, far-right opponents of the Hillary Clinton campaign spread the rumor that a pizzeria in Washington, D.C., was a hub for human trafficking, child sex, and Satanic ritual abuse by high-ranking members of the Democratic party. The premises were shot up by a conspiracy theorist with an AR-15.

        Often, of course, the targets in the present day, as in the Middle Ages, are Jewish. Alex Jones raves that CNN correspondent Brian Stelter is a “literal demon spawn” who is “drunk on our children’s blood.” Louis Farrakhan preaches that “pedophilia and sexual perversion institutionalized in Hollywood . . . can be traced to Talmudic principles and . . . Satanic influence under the name of Jew.”

        It would also be a mistake to think that anti-Semitism is confined to the political Right. Karl Marx, in 1847, repeated the ancient calumny that “Christians really did slaughter human beings and eat and drink human flesh at Communion.” The Second Intifada and the Arab–Israeli impasse retrained focus on the Jews. In 2001 journalist Chris Hedges wrote in Harper’s that Israeli soldiers “entice children like mice into a trap and murder them for sport.” On Holocaust Memorial Day in 2003, The Independent ran a political cartoon that showed Ariel Sharon eating the head of a Palestinian baby. Recently Rutgers University professor Jasbir Puar was celebrated for bedecking the canard of Jewish organ theft in a sumptuous fabric of critical theory.

        A Left that insists on a myopic analysis of race and power, taking the supernatural coordination inherent in conspiracy theories and off-loading it onto “systems” and “structures,” an oblivious to the anti-Semitic slander made by putative victims who “punch up.” In that moral void, the Holocaust becomes a drain catch for the current the ‘crisis’ of the day. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez retrofits it to Trump’s border policies, which she calls “dehumanizing.” Yet she defends Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, who partner with present-day peddlers of the blood libel. The Holocaust parallel there is much clearer.

        We cannot afford double standards. In Poland in the aftermath of the Holocaust, 42 Jewish residents of Kielce, murdered by their neighbors acting on rumors that Jews had kidnapped a young boy. In Brooklyn today, Jews are attacked on the street with increasing frequency. Many of those hate crimes are committed in Crown Heights, where in 1991 an anti-Semitic riot broke out after rumors that Jews had hoarded emergency medical attention for themselves while a local young boy died.

        America has seen two mass murders of Jewish worshipers in the past year. Stereotypes of the anti-human are the armature of extremism. “Mass movements can rise and spread without belief in a god,” Eric Hoffer observed, “but never without a belief in a devil.”

  3. Mar David Baker asked a serious question concerning Middle East Peace. Hopefully my response fully and totally answers his excellent question.

    “”””Rabbi Kerr…… I claim no authority so I can get away with saying whatever comes to my mind. YOU on the other hand do have authority and you rightfully claim that authority since you ARE a true Rabbi. you are held to a higher standard than “somebody like me !”. I can ” get away with behavior that you cannot. I respectfully submit for your consideration that you have a “bit” of the “Tough Guy Rabbi” attitude probably because of information that you have observed first hand. I also have suffered pain and sorrow in this life. I do not require you to fill in any blanks.
    PLEASE ???? ” TELL ME THAT YOU WANT KIND OF THINGS THAT MONEY JUST CAN’T BUY “.
    WE CAN’T BUY LOVE, TRUE LOYALTY, FAITH or PEACE. All of us are part Dove and part Hawk. Please consider using your obvious skills to promote PEACE. If you do…. let me know if you need any help. I will be your bodyguard. I will guard you with an olive branch an UZI and 13 clips of 9mm. Peace is the only viable alternative.
    It won’t be easy and when you get slapped in the face, you will need to turn the other cheek. So what do you want for the grandchildren of Israel ? More killing or peace and prosperity ?
    Always your friend,

    “””WE CAN’T BUY LOVE, TRUE LOYALTY, FAITH or PEACE.”””

    Exactly so. That’s why the Great Power attempt to foist the “2 State Solution” … utter and total NARISHKEIT. The term “PEACE”, based upon the wisdom of Torah, “it” applies,, this burden of responsibility, “it” judges the leaders of Israeli society in each and every generation. To promote “PEACE”, requires the expenditure of both time and energy. Both resources qualify as valuable treasure. Can not speak for the Jews of G’lut, but the Jews in Israel – we have a highly fractured society! Therefore the subject of “PEACE” only merits the investment of these most precious resources, only and strictly among and between the Jewish people alone.

    Goyim in foreign countries the issue of “PEACE”, an internal problem which those Goyim civilizations have a responsibility to manage. Israel does not lecture the European-barbarians how they should better treat their Gypsy\Roma populations? As far as Europe goes, Israelis — we have a huge chip on our shoulders — post Shoah Jewry utterly despise and detests the subhuman European barbarian apes! Israel completely and totally discounts Europe in general, and the EU in particular. Toward these States of imperialism: Israeli foreign policy – has embraced an Apartheid policy; Europe excluded from having any say what so ever with the region of the Middle East and North Africa. This post Shoah Israeli Apartheid foreign policy toward European powers, the equivalent of the early – post American revolution – Monroe Doctrine; which excluded Europe from intervening in South and Central American domestic issues.

    European imperialism: not a better example in recent history than the Rome statute which established a European ‘International Criminal Court’. Irregardless how much the judges of that “court” condemn Israel for ‘War Crimes’, the noise of that European institution compares to male dogs barking when the neighbor’s bitch comes into heat. Post Shoah Europe: NEVER AGAIN, shall these crude rude barbarians ever pretend to assume the mantle of God and judge Jews.

    G’lut Jewry, arrogant Europeans routinely “slapped Jews in the face! They expected Christ Killer Jews to ‘turn the other cheek’”. Post Shoah Israeli Independence, Israelis, as mentioned above, we have a chip upon our shoulders vis a vis Europe. Israeli foreign policy, hangs a large sign on our borders: “Europeans – stay out! You’re totally not welcome in the Middle East and North Africa”.

    Complex social issues — managed but never resolved. Domestic social relations within a nation do not compare to a game of Checkers, which has a beginning and end. The burden to promote Intra-bnai brit diplomacy among and between the conflicting and opposing political interests within Israeli society, this concept compares to a relay race where each generation passes the baton to the succeeding generations. Hopefully the post Shoah Yidden will not drop the baton like as occurred in the Davidic kingdom and also in the Hashmonaim kingdom, during the 2nd Jewish commonwealth. Over 2000 years of bitter exile/g’lut, hopefully post Shoah Yidden will learn from the gross incompetent errors which our forefathers made.

  4. The Purpose of Writing this blog. To some degree bases itself upon the book: Six Days of War, by Michael B. Oren. P.2: While it may be useless to try to pinpoint the cause or causes of the Middle East war of 1967, one can describe the context in which that war became possible. Much like the hypothetical butterfly that, flapping its wings, gives rise to currents that eventually generate a storm, so, too, might small, seemingly insignificant events spark processes leading ultimately to cataclysm.

    View myself as a totally insignificant butterfly of a person. But this tiny, mostly ignored blog, hopes to spark public criticism of Reshonim scholarship decisions made and expressed through their commentaries written on the Talmud and T’NaCH literature. Yeshiva Orthodox education forbids criticism of these early secondary sources. This decision, it seems to me — just plain wrong. The current cat-fights within the Israeli Knesset, I bring as primary evidence that leadership decisions inspire open and critical debates.

    Any study of rabbinic scholarship, especially during the Middle Ages prior to Napoleon liberating our People from the war criminal ghetto gulags, merits criticism and close scrutiny. It takes two hands to clap. Despite the lack of physical evidence which supports this thesis, my gut tells me that church leadership alone in the 16th Century, could never have succeeded in implementing ghetto gulags, spread across Europe and Russia, without the support of Kapo like Jews – modeled after Max Naumann (12 January 1875 – May 1939), founder of Verband nationaldeutscher Juden. This disgrace for a human being compares to the likes of Benedict Arnold, John Amery, Harold Cole, Vidkun Quisling, Philippe Pétain etc., criminals who supported the Nazis, and assisted in the war against the Jews of Europe.

    The introduction of political Zionism late in the 19th Century, it serves as an example of the butterfly effect, which so aroused nationalism and international wars that followed thereafter. Rabbinic Orthodoxy’s reaction to Zionism so contrasts with their total failure to denounce and destroy the Ari false gnostic kabbala\forbidden additions to the sealed Jewish masoret. This radical mystic kabbala perverted the classic מעשה בראשית masoret, as expressed through the Siddur; it opened the gates of tuma which history refers to as the false messiah heresies. That gnostic kabbala butterfly effect produced, so to speak, a unique social chaos chain reaction which culminated in the Cossack pogroms of 1648.

    A study of history entails much more than people, dates, and places. Before the Peace of Westphalia (1648), the numerous German principalities under the Holy Roman Empire restricted and limited their autonomy; these principalities could not conduct foreign affairs that resulted mutual treaties with other countries or empires. The removal of these legal restrictions effectively transformed these German principalities into Independent States.

    According to Frank Chiang, The One-China Policy: State, Sovereignty, and Taiwan’s International Legal Status, 2018. Modern States share some four common features: (1) the people; (2) a territory in which the people inhabit; (3) a ruler—a king or a sovereign prince—who bears sovereignty; and (4) the capability to engage in relations with other States. It seems to me, that European hostile rhetoric propaganda seeks to subvert the Jewish State; by shoving these four rules, magically concealed through false but repeated declarations of “International Law”, which intend to turn Samaria and Eastern Jerusalem into a kind of “Foie Gras”! As if Israel exists as a domesticated goose under the authority of the EU, Russia, and UN.

    Arab refugees populations, captured as a consequence of the victory of the 2nd Israeli War of Independence, have no rights. The moral outrage expressed by European Capitals completely ignores the treatment Jews received under European rule for over 2000 years, which terminated in the Shoah\Final Solution. European Capital lost their First among equals, first world status – following their defeat in WW ll. Israel does not recognize the right of any European government to sit as a permanent member on the UN Security Council. Both London and Paris merit no respect, they both aided the Nazi war effort to exterminate the Jews of Europe.

    These dethroned and defrocked ‘Great Powers’, the moral cowardice of their leaders, openly encouraged the lessor States of Europe to follow suit. The same holds true with the Reshonim scholarship on the Talmud following the Rambam Civil War. The same chain of consequences resulted in the Yankee war of aggression against the South. The Yankee victors replaced a Constitutional Republic of States, with a corrupt democracy.

    This post Civil War democracy, continually expands the voting franchise unto individuals not politically educated, and who have little or no stake in the political decisions, that these ‘democratically elected leaders’ effect upon the lives of the People; lobbies have replaced Governors and State Legislatures as the dominating influence over the Federal Congress persons and Senators. Lobbies write the Bills which bribed Congressmen and Senators present to Congress. Herein defines the corruption of Washington which ultimately define American law.

    The Rambam Civil War produced a similar corrosive deterioration upon the scholarship of both the Talmud and T’NaCH. Rabbinic leadership thereafter gave but mere lip service to the contrasting kabbala masoret of פרדס ומעשה בראשית as did the post Civil War Yankee governments in Washington honor and respect States Rights. Yeshiva educated, and how much more so, the common man on the street, neither Jew has the slightest idea how the kabbala of מעשה בראשית defines the k’vanna required to da’aven through the Siddur; the mitzvot of kiddushin and get\agunah and all positive time oriented commandments דאורייתא ודרבנן.

    Rabbinic Judaism does not strive to define tohor, contrasted by tuma, middot. Despite the fact that the Gemara of ברכות emphatically teaches that tefillot function in the stead of korbanot. Today the rote ritual of da’avening tefilla duplicates the offering of a barbeque unto Heaven, whereby king Shaul defied the commandment of the prophet Shmuel, and profaned his anointing as the Moshiach. King Shaul effectively turned the Moshiach blessing, into a Torah curse; just as when the people who originally asked the prophet Shmuel for a king; and rain, during the dry season, immediately thereafter fell!

    In 1948 and 1967 secular Jewry secured victory for the Jewish people by winning our two wars of Independence. A tremendous accomplishment. But the continued home rule of the Jewish people upon these lands, based upon the Torah as our Constitutional masoret, requires from all generations of Jews thereafter, strive to establish: (1) The Torah as the Written Constitution of the Cohen Republic of States. (2) Rebuild the Cities of Refuge, and therein establish the lateral courts of common law; the small and Great Sanhedrin(s) authorized to impose lashes as the defining criminal code of Jewish law as opposed & contrasted by Penitentiary Ghettos which define the western codes of criminal justice. Justice must restore compensation for damages imposed – in a quick and fair manner by the lateral Common Law Courts. (3) Cut a canal which connects the Mediterranean with the Salt Sea; to cause rain to fall upon the Negev and Sahara deserts. The intent, to send the Arab refugee populations, currently temporarily residing within Israel, to farm these now fertile crop producing lands of North Africa. The Torah blessing of causing rain to give life unto barren Wilderness lands, promises to transform Egypt and North African States unto the main trading partners of the Cohen Republic of Israel.

  5. The Yom Kippur War lasted 16 to 18 days. The June War by contrast only lasted 6 days. Why did the Israeli Army stop about 60 miles from Cairo?

    During the cease fire negotiations, the American Secretary of State, informed the Egyptians that Israel had bullets for 9 days. This War caused a huge trauma. Egyptian Arab pride, dignity, and honor — restored by Sadat when Israel agreed to return the captured Sinai. Never back your enemy into a corner – no other choice but to fight. The Egyptians fought well, very well, and still suffered crushing defeats which resulted in Israel surrounding an Egyptian army. Just as Israel did not march its troops into Cairo, so too Israel did not crush and humiliate the Egyptian 3rd Army.

    TEL AVIV, Oct. 25 — The Egyptian III Corps, estimated to number 15,000 to 30,000 men, remained trapped by the Israelis today, unable to acquire fresh supplies of water and food.

    It was generally felt here that the plight of the Egyptian force was at the root of the increasingly tense international situation, in which the Soviet Union threatened to send troops to the Middle East and the United States warned it against doing so.

    Israel announced that she planned to supply the encircled Egyptians with blood plasma but said that they were in no immediate danger of dying of thirst or hunger.

    Israeli spokesmen also said that there was no fighting or violation of the cease‐fire by either side during the day on either the Egyptian or the Syrian fronts and that the United ations Truce Supervision Organization’s observer teams were moving into position.

    Egypt’s III Corps is cut off in a narrow pocket on the eastern bank of the Suez Canal south of the Great Bitter Lake and in a small enclave embracing the city of Suez at the southern end of the canal.

    If the isolation of the Egyptian force is very much prolonged, the III Corps might be forced to surrender or ask for free passage through Israeli lines.

    Such a move would reduce Egypt’s holdings on the eastern hank of the canal, all of which she had seized soon after the war began on Oct. 6, to a narrow strip running from Qautara to a point opposite Ismailia—only about one‐quarIsmailia—only about one‐quarter of the canal’s 100‐mile length.

    To prevent this, Israeli sources pointed out, Egypt must hope to force Israel to relax at least partially the stranglehold her forces west of the canal have around the III Corps positions. This, the sources said, explained Egypt’s demand in the United Nations for a restoration of the ceasefire lines of last Monday and the reports that Soviet forces might be introduced into the area.

    Israel announced that although the Egyptian troops were unable to get food and water, they were in no immediate danger of dying of thirst or hunger. The Israelis said they planned to provide the encircled troops with blood plasma.

    Trapped Egyptian Force Seen at Root of Problem

    Israeli Movements

    Israeli sources have conceded that their army west of the Suez canal advanced nine miles to encircle the city of Suez on Tuesday and then drove further to the port of Adabiya, to the southwest, totally isolating the Egyptian III Corps. They said that the Israelis had moved only after Egyptian forces had violated the ceasefire, which began at 6:52 P.M. local time Monday.

    But, 4n Israeli officer, said, by Monday evening the Israeli Army had not only got astride the two main roads from Suez city westward to Cairo but had also reached a point where a third, subsidiary, road winding through mountains to the coast south of Suez city reaches the main roads.

    “Even if we moved back to the positions of Monday night we would still have land communications effectively cut,” said the source. “That junction was, from the start, the main objective of our armored force after it crossed the canal and began swinging south.”

    In his news conference in Washington today Secretary of State Kissinger said that the United States had already supported and would continue to support resolutions in the United Nations Security Council calling for a return to the Monday night cease‐fire positions.

    Grave Displeasure

    As seen from Tel Aviv, however, the United States has shown a grave displeasure at the prospect of the use of Soviet troops to intimidate Israel into such a withdrawal.

    One official said, about the possibility that Soviet troops might be put into the area: “We are not oblivious of what, is going on around us, but we are not going to make any decision about cease‐fire lines until we have to.”

    Defense Minister Moshe Dayan told journalists who accompanied him on a trip to the Israeli enclave on the western bank of the canal that “Israel has not been and is not fighting Russians but rather Egyptians and Syrians.”

    Although the United States was publicly committed to the Security Council resolution calling for a restoration of the Monday cease‐fire lines, some sources here said that the United States had not made private, direct demands on Israel.

    Unusual Cabinet Session

    However, the Israeli Cabinet was called into an unusual session at 6 A.M. local time today and met for four hours to discuss what informants said was a message from the Israeli Ambassador to the United States, Simcha Dinitz.

    An Israeli military spokesman, Col. Nachman Karni, said tonight that Egypt had requested the International Committee of the Red Cross to ask Israel to permit the shipment of blood plasma to the isolated III Corps for wounded men.

    Colonel Karni said that “it was found to be quite complicated” for Egyptian helicopters to reach their own forces with the plasma.

    He said that Israel had agreed to furnish the plasma, which would be delivered as soon as practicable by Israeli or Red Cross vehicles on the ground.

    Israeli spokesmen several days ago began to refer to the isolated forces as the Third Army. In military jargon a more precise word, informants agreed, would be that it was a corps—a formation of two to four divisions. Two or more corps constitute an army.

    The isolated III Corps is known to include the best units in the Egyptian Army—the Fourth Armored Division and at least one infantry division.

    Colonel Karni said today that “they are not starving or dying of thirst,” although Israel has cut the water pipelines to the eastern bunk. He said that as well‐organized military formation the corps had gone into battle with water‐tank trucks and food. He said he could not, however, estimate how long these would last.

    The colonel was asked if Israel’s military leaders would oppose by force any attempt by Egypt to go over Israeli‐controlled territory to resupply her forces in the isolated pocket.

    He said, “You have got me indeep water,” but then indicated that, on humanitarian grounds, Israel would probably not deny water and food to the III Corps when needed.

    However, other Israelis made it clear, that Israel would be much more ready to supply water and food herself than to permit Egyptian safe transit to do so.

    “You must remember,” said a well‐informed source, “that cease‐fires are nothing new in the Middle East. In the 1948 war of independence there were several and the Arabs always opposed permitting us to resupply Jewish Jerusalem.”

    He recalled that Col. Gamal Abdel Nasser, later the President of Egypt, had been among Egyptian troops isolated in a pocket in the 1948‐49 war who had been denied resupply by the Israelis and had marched, disarmed, out of their encirclement.

    There was no sense of public alarm or panic in Israel about the strains between the United States and the Soviet Union. Israeli spokesmen said that they had no independent intelligence that Soviet forces were on their way to Egypt.

    Jewish Groups to Hold Joint Drive for Israel

    Mayor John V. Lindsay joined two Jewish philanthropic organizations yesterday in announcing a $280‐million fund‐raising campaign to aid Israel.

    The money, raised by the United Jewish Appeal and the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies, will also be used to meet local educational, health and social service needs, according to Laurence A. Tisch, the U.J.A. President.

    At a news conference at U.J.A. headquarters, the Mayor said the $280‐million goal was “critically important.”

    He said news of the drive would be a boost for Israeli morale “as tremendous as any sought for military or political victory.”

    The campaign Is to begin immediately and last, through most of next year.

    Israel does not seek to rule an empire. Israeli leadership plays the long game to work together with Arabs and Muslims. Should Israeli forces capture an Arab Capital City, force an unconditional Arab surrender. Israel has backed Arab pride and honor into a corner. Israel seeks Arab prosperity. To cause the dessert to bloom. Which dessert? The Sinai and Sahara dessert. To free Egyptian farm land crop production from the waters of the Nile river. The Nile dam dispute threatens a war of exhaustion for Egypt. Israel agreed to return the Sinai, under the leadership of Prime Minister Begin, in exchange for the pride and honor of Egyptian peace with Israel.

    The bravery of President Sadat, cost him his life. But Israel following the horrors of the October War of ’73, has come to respect the strength and integrity of Egyptian pride and honor. Egypt the first Arab country who rejected ‘blood libel’ slander and lies. Causing climate change. Rain in Sinai and Sahara = forests, and crops. Egypt need not necessarily have to fight an African War over the waters of the Nile river. Syria, has it not similarly witnessed similar behavior by the rulers of Turkey?

    The Canal Project joining the Mediterranean Sea with the Salt Sea could serve as the shared mutual interests, the cement that binds an Israeli/Egyptian economic alliance. The objective of the alliance to cut a wide deep canal. To convert a large percentage of Mediterranean water into Hydrogen and Oxygen gases. Causing those new Sea Waters to mix well with the brine water of the Dead Sea.

    Israeli education of captured stateless Arab refugee populations would in the future focus their education upon agriculture education. Arab pride and honor demands that Arab and Muslim followers of the Koran repatriate their stateless Arab refugee populations following the Israeli victory of its 2nd Independence 1967 War. Israel seeks that Egypt, together with the States of Northern Africa forge a working trade route which succeeds to accomplish the primary trade of Israel with Egypt and North Africa.

    A trade route that unites the economies of Egypt to Western Sahara. This trade route could quickly expand and include other countries, forging an economic union comparable to the EU. The unique quality of the Jewish State, HaShem has a brit to cause the rains to fall in their due season and places. This blessing of the Jewish State therefore in possession of the power required to cause it rain consistently in the Sinai and Sahara. The dignity and honor of the Jewish State no less than the dignity and honor of Saudi Arabia. But unlike the European barbarians who expelled Jews from living within their lands, destitute and suffering absolute poverty. Israel commits to educating our stateless captured Arab refugee populations in agriculture.

    To bring rain to the Sinai and the Sahara transforms the Africa into an economic power house. Once crops grow on these former dessert lands, Africa will need share croppers. The captured stateless Arab refugee populations, they leave Israel with dignity and honor – Israel gives respect to these repatriated people. The new Arab citizens of North Africa, they return to their people and homelands employed as trained farmers.
