Two-State Solution a Ploy to Destroy Israel

In an article titled “Debunking the claim that ‘Palestinians’ are the indigenous people of Israel”, Daniel Grynglas explains that the so-called “Palestinian” claim on the Promised Land is fatally flawed and that Jewish claims are supported by mountains of hard data.  He’s right:

The wars between Israel and its Arab neighbors were fought for many years on the battlefield between armies. In recent decades the arena of conflict has shifted from hand-to-hand combat to a war of narratives. 

Everybody agrees that the current affluence of Israel, its modern infrastructure and economy were developed by the Jews. The Palestinian Arab narrative is that as the ancient, indigenous people of Palestine they feel dispossessed and they deserve to take over Israel’s riches. Jewish claims to their heritage in the land of Israel are supported by abundant archaeological artifacts and historical records. 

Meanwhile, there are no records to support the Palestinian narrative. In history, art and literature there is no trace at all of any Muslim people referred to by anybody as “Palestinians.” 

Records show that it was 19th and 20th century Jewish settlement and the resulting employment opportunities that drew successive waves of Arab immigrants to Palestine. “The Arab population shows a remarkable increase ….. partly due to the import of Jewish capital into Palestine and other factors associated with the growth of the [Jewish] National Home..” (The Peel Commission Report – 1937)

The well-rehearsed Palestinian narrative that has been formulated over the past 50 years to garner global support for the “plight of the Palestinians” and the “Palestinian cause” is behind the effort to impose a two-state solution on Israel.  In reality, it’s not about two states.  It’s about the destruction of Israel.

To achieve their goal, Palestinians have employed a simple but effective pincer strategy.  First, they portray themselves to the global media as victims of Israeli aggression.  That part of the narrative is totally false as Grynglas and many others have documented.  Even so, an ignorant world gobbles up news stories written by reporters who are seeking to undermine the tiny Jewish state.

Second, they engage in terrorist acts that are designed to provoke an Israeli response.  When Israeli leaders have absorbed as much abuse as human beings can be expected to endure, they attack.  On queue, Palestinian leaders trot out women and children who were placed in harm’s way intentionally so that reporters can take pictures of them and sell the Palestinian narrative.  This, too, has been effective.

Yasser Arafat (a.k.a Mohammed Yasser Abdel Rahman Abdel Raouf Arafat al-Qudwa), an Egyptian and founder of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), was the architect of the Palestinian pincer strategy.  Until the day he died, he made clear that his ultimate goal was to destroy Israel.

For instance, he said, “Since we cannot defeat Israel in war we do this in stages.  We take any and every territory that we can of Palestine, and establish sovereignty there, and we use it as a springboard to take more.  When the time comes, we can get the Arab nations to join us for the final blow against Israel.” (Yasser Arafat speaking on Jordanian television, September 13, 1993—the same day the Oslo Peace Accord ceremony was held in Washington D.C.  The Oslo Peace Accord gave birth to the two-state solution.)

Arafat also said, “Peace for us means the destruction of Israel.  We are preparing for an all-out war, a war which will last for generations.  Since January 1965, when Fatah was born, we have become the most dangerous enemy that Israel has….We shall not rest until the day when we return to our home, and until we destroy Israel.” (El Mundo, Caracas, Venezuela, February 11, 1980)

Despite appearances, this is a spiritual battle between Yahweh and Satan.  Yahweh’s archenemy is trying to get the world to take sides against Him.  His goal is to prevent Yahweh from fulfilling His promises to Abraham through Isaac and Jacob/Israel.  He can’t succeed, but that won’t stop him from trying.  In the end, he will lose and so will anyone who does his bidding knowingly or mistakenly.  Ignorance is not an excuse.

The Palestinian issue is probably the most important issue of our time.  The Iran nuclear issue is a close second, and these two issues are converging right now.  For example, see “Top Khamenei Advisor: We Have Divine Permission to Destroy Israel”:

An official close to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei asserted that his government has a godly ordained right to annihilate Israel, Al Arabiya reported on Tuesday.

The “government of the Islamic Republic of Iran has divine permission to destroy Israel,” said Mojtaba Zolnour, a Khamenei representative in the elite Revolutionary Guards.

According to semi-official state news agency Fars, Zolnour said that, “the Noble Koran permits the Islamic Republic of Iran to destroy Israel.” He added that, “Even if Iran gives up its nuclear program, it will not weaken this country’s determination to destroy Israel.”

Zolnour is correct.  Iran does have permission to destroy Israel.  You can even say that they have been ordered to destroy Israel, but the person who gave Iran permission or the order isn’t divine.  That was Satan’s doing.

Yahweh’s people must know Who and what they support.  Don’t get caught on the wrong side of this issue.

Similar to pre-World War II days, increasingly Europe is becoming a breeding ground for anti-Semites.  France is chief among the offending states.  See “French-Israeli Relationship Hits Snag over Palestinian Issue”.

You can’t be for Yahweh and against Israel and Jews.  The Charlie Hebdo attack wasn’t enough to awaken the slumbering French.  It may be too late for France.

Deception is rampant.  It’s Satan’s most powerful tool.  Attacks against Yahweh and Israel are coming from all quarters including the Vatican, the seat of papal power.  For example, see “Vatican Recognition of ‘State of Palestine’ Riles Jewish Organizations”.

It riles me, too.

It doesn’t matter who you are or what your title is, you can’t be for Yahweh and against Israel and Jews.  The pope is just another man.  He will be held accountable just like everybody else.

The history of the Catholic Church is loaded with examples of debauchery, depravity, and treachery.  For instance, in 325 A.D. at the First Council of Nicaea, the “church” leader at the time, Roman Emperor Constantine, abolished Passover and substituted Easter—a celebration for the fertility goddess Ishtar.  He also abandoned the Fourth Commandment and gave us Sunday Sabbath.  To this day, Catholic leaders view Protestant Christians as Catholics because they still regard Sunday as the Sabbath.  In other words, they didn’t protest enough.

Later, corporate Catholicism introduced a new product line to enrich church leaders—indulgences.  They were sold to the poor, gullible, and frightened masses for “forgiveness” of sins.  This practice came to an abrupt halt during the Reformation.  Today, the Catholic Church denies any responsibility for the selling of indulgences, but that’s laughable given the evidence against them.

Let’s not forget about the role played by Catholic Church leaders in hiding cases of child sexual abuse by homosexual, pedophile priests for decades and then finally “coming clean”.  I hate that phrase.  It was a Clintonesque admission of guilt when they were corned by mounting evidence just a few years ago.  It had nothing to do with contrition.

When it comes to the Catholic Church, nothing surprises me.

Pressuring Israel to accept the unacceptable is sinful, and the Vatican has a friend in the White House.  See “Obama sees ‘difficult path’ toward two-state solution”.

The Palestinian narrative, Catholic policy, and Obama’s inclinations dovetail perfectly, and Israel is their intended victim.

The Israeli people aren’t happy with these developments.  See “Israel hawks to Pope Francis: Stay out of politics”.  It’s not just “Israel hawks”.  True believers everywhere see the writing on the wall and the inevitable collision with Yahweh toward which we are reeling headlong.

It’s not about “politics”, either.  It’s about right and wrong, good and evil.  That’s something that so-called “Palestinians”, the pope, and the president must not understand or maybe they understand perfectly and don’t care.

This is the bottom line: a payday coming.  This is how the prophet Hosea explained a similar situation:

“The days of punishment have come, the days of retribution have come; let Israel know this! The prophet is a fool, the inspired man is demented, because of the grossness of your iniquity, and because your hostility is so great.” (Hosea 9: 7)

Yahweh didn’t spare Israel when they went astray, and He won’t spare the guilty today, either.  But He will forgive and forget if we repent.

Repentance comes from a humble and contrite heart, not from a wicked tongue.






13--Perspectives 2


Julian Pecquet: What’s Driving Pope Francis’ Middle East Diplomacy?— The Vatican’s forceful recognition of a Palestinian state May 13 is just the latest in a series of bold diplomatic moves aimed at ensuring that Christians will be able to remain in the birthplace of their faith. From the beginning of his papacy Pope Francis hasn’t hesitated to jump into the bloody politics of the Middle East, starting with his September 2013 appeal for a day of fasting and prayer to protest the planned US military strikes on Syria. Since then he has recognized the Armenian slaughter of 1915 as a genocide and repeatedly called for peace in the region, all in the name of defusing conflicts that threaten to tear apart a rich mosaic of cultures in which Christians once thrived. “We cannot resign ourselves to a Middle East without Christians, who have professed the name of Jesus there for [2,000] years,” The New York Times quoted the pope as saying during his visit to Turkey last year. At other times Francis has sought to highlight the importance of religious and ethnic diversity more broadly. Nassif Hitti, the Arab League ambassador to Rome and the Vatican, said his goal has been to seek solutions to long-simmering conflicts that have fueled extremism and religious intolerance throughout the region.

SnyderTalk Comment: None of that has anything to do with the creation of a Palestinian state on land that Yahweh promised to Abraham’s descendants through Isaac and Jacob/Israel.

Indo-Asian News Service: Mohammad Javad Zarif: Barack Obama assuaging Arab countries by accusing Iran—Iran’s top diplomat has dismissed US President Barack Obama’s recent anti-Iran remarks, saying the comments are aimed at pleasing Washington’s Arab allies. Reacting to remarks by Obama, who called Iran a “state sponsor of terrorism” in an interview with Arab newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the comments were “merely a repetition of previous baseless accusations” and were intended to calm US allies, Fars news agency reported on Thursday. “These allegations have been proven groundless time and again,” Zarif said. During the Asharq Al-Awsat interview, which was published on Wednesday, Obama also said the Arab states of the Persian Gulf were right to be concerned about Iran’s activities in the region. The Iranian foreign minister said Tehran’s policies in the region were based on “the enhancement of friendship and cooperation and responsible action to strengthen stability and guarantee security in the region”.

SnyderTalk Comment: Zarif hasn’t seen the worst of it yet.  People who know the most about the Iran deal like it the least.  Leaders in Israel and Arab countries know the deal better than anyone.  They don’t like it at all.  That should tell us something.

Washington Post Editorial: Obama’ Lonely Gulf Summit—THE WHITE House may deny it, but the spotty attendance of Persian Gulf leaders at the summit meeting President Obama organized for them this week is an unmistakable signal of dissatisfaction with their U.S. ally. Saudi Arabia’s King Salman is not about to follow the example of Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu by publicly assailing Mr. Obama’s nuclear negotiations with Iran or his reluctance to counter its aggression across the region. But his decision not to attend a dinner and a day of discussions at Camp David after the White House had already announced his attendance — and the nonappearance of three of the five other heads of state — shows that the administration’s efforts to reassure these long-standing U.S. Middle East allies are falling short. The cause of the Arabs’ dissastisfaction is not hard to discern. While insisting that he is ready to bolster their defenses and quiet their fears about an emerging U.S.-Iranian detente, Mr. Obama is offering only modest steps: a reiteration of past presidential statements pledging to defend the Gulf states against external attack; a plan to better integrate the region’s missile defenses; more sea and air exercises. What’s not on offer is what the kings and emirs say they want, including a formal defense treaty, sales of high-tech weaponry like the F-35 warplane and greater U.S. support for the forces fighting the Iranians and their proxies in Yemen and Syria.

Bradley Klapper: Obama vows to keep Arab allies secure amid Iran deal fears—Charging toward an Iran nuclear agreement, President Barack Obama is assuring Arab allies that they are safe from the threat of an empowered Tehran as he seeks to shore up some of America’s most critical security partnerships. However, Obama’s claim of winning Arab support for his nuclear diplomacy appears far from certain. After a rare Camp David summit, the president on Thursday pledged Washington’s “ironclad commitment” to the Sunni governments of the Persian Gulf and even spoke of authorizing U.S. military force if their security is endangered by Shiite Iran or anyone else. The United States, he vowed, will “use all elements of power to secure our core interests in the Gulf region, and to deter and confront external aggression against our allies and partners.” Obama invoked the start of a “new era of cooperation” that would last for decades to come, even as Saudi Arabia and others in the region are deeply unnerved by the prospect of an accord with Iran that would impose a decade-long freeze on its nuclear program and potentially provide it tens of billions of dollars’ worth of relief from international sanctions. The Sunni governments came to Washington looking for assurances that Obama would pair his diplomatic effort with a broader strategy to push back against Iran’s expanding influence in the Middle East.

SnyderTalk Comment: How good is Obama’s word?  The evidence is coming back to haunt him.

I don’t know who believes the president.  Maybe his wife, but I doubt it.

Zalman Shoval: Bolstering Arab Nations Must Not Undermine Israel’s Security—Washington has vowed that bolstering the Arab nations’ military abilities will not undermine Israel’s strategic qualitative edge, but history has taught us that this promise is not without its weak spots. The U.S.’s strategic considerations do not have to account for threats from Canada or Mexico, but Israel does not have the luxury of dismissing Middle East dynamics, even when it concerns countries with which it has peace treaties – and especially with regards to a pan-Arab army that includes nations with which such treaties do not exist.

Arab News Editorial, Saudi Arabia: World Must Rein In Iran Before Inking Deal—A deal with Iran over its nuclear program will focus almost entirely on the International Atomic Energy Agency being given unrestricted access to nuclear sites. It will not take account of Iran’s deadly meddling in the Middle East. It will not commit the government in Tehran to restoring friendly relations with its neighbors in the Gulf. Iran is suffering badly from the international sanctions imposed upon it. Popular discontent is rising. The government in Tehran is desperate for the lifting of sanctions. The minute they end, all chance of curbing Tehran’s misbehavior in the region is gone. It has to be suspected that the 12 long years of talks were all about buying time for Iranian nuclear scientists. Forcing Iran to abandon its nuclear weapons program was never the key issue. The wider issue is convincing Iran to revert to being a good neighbor. Thus, reaching a wide agreement based on a commitment not to interfere in the affairs of other states is crucial. The nuclear deal therefore needs to be recast. Tehran needs to be convinced that its tragic regional interference must end.

Raymond Ibrahim: “Whoever Disbelieves, Strike Off His Head”—Throughout February, members of the largest Christian minority in the Middle East, the Copts, were slaughtered. The Islamic State released a video in mid-February depicting 21 poverty-stricken Coptic Christians being decapitated in Libya, where these men had gone to find work. While holding their victims’ bodies down, Islamic State members shoved their fingers in the Christians’ eyes, craned their heads back, and sliced away at their throats with knives — all in the name of Allah and Islam, even as the slaughtered called out to the “Lord Jesus Christ.” Over one month before the video appeared, the BBC had falsely reported that the majority of those now-slaughtered Copts were “released.” (Such inaccurate portrayals that seek to downplay the Muslim persecution of Christians are standard for the BBC.)

Erick Stakelbeck: Nun: ‘Islam Is ISIS. Whoever Says Otherwise Is a Liar’—The Islamic terror group ISIS is leaving a trail of destruction across large parts of Syria and Iraq with a specific target in their crosshairs. Hundreds of thousands of Christians have been displaced from their homes and countless others have been murdered or enslaved by the jihadist army, with no end in sight. Sister Hatune Dogan has been on the ground and witnessed the devastation of these ancient Christian communities. She’s listened to survivors tell how Christians and Yazidi women are being sold into sex slavery. “They choose the most beautiful one, even if they have a small child, and they sell these women, these ladies to each other. They don’t sell to another religion — only Sunni Muslim,” Dogan said. There have been 12,000 kidnapped at the hands of ISIS – Yazidi alone. What is going on there, what I was hearing, is the highest barbarism on earth in the history until today,” she added.

SnyderTalk Comment: When people who call themselves Muslims but really aren’t finally wake up to reality, they will leave Islam in droves.

Herb Keinon: Top Member of U.S. Negotiating Team: Most West Bank Housing Tenders Announced During Peace Talks Were on Land Abbas Agreed Would Remain Israeli—David Makovsky, a member of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s negotiating team, told a conference at Bar-Ilan University’s Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies on Tuesday that during nine months of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations in 2014, 62% of Israel’s publicly announced tenders for housing beyond the Green Line were earmarked for the 1.9% of West Bank land that PA President Mahmoud Abbas had once consented would remain in Israel’s hands. Makovsky, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said that Israel was more “geographically cautious” with settlement announcements during the negotiating period than many realize, but this fact was not made public for political reasons. In 2008 Abbas reportedly offered a 1.9% land swap, apparently involving the area where most of the housing tenders were announced during the negotiations.

Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu: Israel Is the Focus of Modern Anti-Semitism—Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the 5th Global Forum for Combating Anti-Semitism on Tuesday:

  • Seventy years ago, with the end of World War II and the revelation of the horrors of the Holocaust, some believed that humanity would discard one of history’s oldest hatreds – anti-Semitism. Yet today there is no doubt that we are living in an age of resurgent anti-Semitism. Now, contemporary anti-Semitism doesn’t just slander, vilify and target the Jewish people. It first and foremost today targets the Jewish state.
  • The big lie of anti-Semitism is propagated most enthusiastically by those who trample on the human rights of their own people. Iran will lecture us on human rights, on the rule of law, on safeguarding human decency? They string up innocent people on cranes in the squares of Tehran and Iran’s other cities. They send their goons to Lebanon, to Syria, to Yemen, slaughtering people by the thousands. They slaughter Muslims who do not share their violent creed.
  • The Hamas Charter repeats the ancient libels against the Jews. It openly calls for the murder of Jews wherever they are and for the destruction of their state. The same can be said of Hizbullah and for their common patron, Iran.
  • The classic anti-Semite portrayed the Jews as the embodiment of all evil in the world. Modern anti-Semites portray the Jewish state as the embodiment of all evil in the world. When Hamas and Hizbullah rocketed our cities – a war crime – tens of thousands demonstrated in the streets of European capitals, not against Hamas, not against Hizbullah, but against Israel. The demonstrations, the boycotts, the resolutions are all reserved for the Middle East’s one true democracy – Israel.

Sam Sokol: “International Community Should Criminalize Double Standards Against Israel as Anti-Semitism”—The international community should criminalize anti-Semitism and establish a multilateral body to monitor it, former Ministry of Foreign Affairs legal adviser Amb. Alan Baker asserted on Monday in the text of a draft international convention. In 2013, Baker drafted a similar document banning inciting terrorism, which was promoted at the UN. According to Baker, any manifestation of anti-Semitism that results in violence or is meant to incite violence should be considered a crime under international law. He defined anti-Semitism as including Holocaust denial; expressions of hostility or demonstrations of violence toward Jews individually or as a religious, ethnic or racial collective; and the use of “sinister stereotypes” and conspiracy theories “charging Jews with conspiring to harm humanity” and justifying the killing or harming of Jews.

Arne Delfs and Patrick Donahue: Merkel: Germany Has a “Special Obligation to Support Israel”—Chancellor Angela Merkel defended Germany’s sale of weapons to Israel, saying her country has a responsibility to help protect the Jewish state given that 6 million Jews died under the Nazi regime in World War II. “We sell weapons to Israel because we believe that Israel must defend itself and is often attacked,” Merkel said Tuesday in Berlin. “We also believe that Germany has a special obligation to support Israel.”

Real Clear Politics: Homeland Security Chief: My Job Is To “Give Voice To The Plight Of Muslims”— DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY SECRETARY JEH JOHNSON: We in the administration and the government should give voice to the plight of Muslims living in this country and the discrimination that they face. And so I personally have committed to speak out about the situation that very often people in the Muslim community in this country face. The fact that there are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world and the Islamic faith is one about peace and brotherhood.

SnyderTalk Comment: How anyone in a position of authority can make and idiotic statement like that and still have a job amazes me.  But he works for Obama.  Enough said.

James Kirchick: Putin Takes Credit For Defeating Fascism. LOL—Vladimir Putin’s campaign to appropriate World War II history for his aggressive dismemberment of Europe’s paltry security order reached a crescendo Saturday, when Russia celebrated Victory Day with a massive military parade. Since its inception, the primary purpose of Victory Day has been to serve the political purposes of whoever happens to rule the Kremlin. It was not until 1965, that May 9—the day when news of Nazi Germany’s surrender to the Soviet Union in 1945 reached Moscow—became an official holiday. Josef Stalin had feared that a commemoration of the wartime triumph would valorize the country’s generals at the expense of his own cult of personality. After a decade of subtler celebrations in the 1990s, a period when the country’s leaders hoped to tamp down Soviet-era traditions, the traditional Victory Day pomp and circumstance returned in full force when Putin came to power. In recent years, the Kremlin and its associated propaganda instruments have attempted to revivify the Soviet narrative of World War II, erasing the opportunistic Hitler-Stalin Pact from the history books while simultaneously claiming all credit for defeating the Nazis and thereby saving humanity. In this telling, it was not just the Soviet Union (with all of its many republics and nationalities) that defeated the Germans, but more precisely Russia and the Russian people. The Red Army—a multinational force with conscripts spanning the empire from Armenia to Kazakhstan—is now recast as a Russian army, and the role of, say, Ukrainians, in defeating the Germans is conveniently ignored.

Investor’s Business Daily Editorial: John Kerry’s Russian Re-Reset Is Based On Talk, Not Action—Superpower: Secretary of State John Kerry is attempting a “Russian re-reset” by personally engaging with Vladimir Putin. But the real way to rein in an aggressor is to act, not beg. After meeting for more than four hours with the ex-KGB officer, Kerry declared “there’s no substitute for talking directly to key decision-makers.” Actually, the problem is that this administration substitutes talk for resolute U.S. action in opposing adversaries. And Russia is the adversary with the greatest strategic global reach. With Putin a menace from the Baltics to the Mideast, it’s time to stop expecting Moscow to be persuaded to reset itself and do some resetting of our own, without begging for permission.

Shimon Ohayon: How Israeli ‘Human Rights’ Groups Threaten Our Very Existence—The State of Israel was established during a period of intense focus on human rights issues. All the leading political movements during that period dedicated a significant part of their platforms to human rights. The institutions and laws established in Israel reflect the central place of human rights at the heart of the State’s ideological foundations. It is therefore not surprising that human rights organizations have always been prominent and active in Israeli society. However, in recent years we have seen the rise of new organizations which, while they call themselves “human rights organizations,” are in fact of a completely different ilk from the tradition. Contrary to what one would assume, these organizations’ activities raise questions as to the sincerity of their concern with human rights, questions that are motivated by the agendas and goals that are guiding them.

George Jahn: UN Nuke Agency Head: Deal Gives IAEA Right to Access Iranian Military Sites—International Atomic Energy Agency head Yukiya Amano said Tuesdaythat a nuclear agreement being worked on by Tehran and six world powers would give his experts the right to push for access to Iranian military sites. Amano said Iran specifically agreed to implement the agency’s “Additional Protocol” when it agreed to the outlines of the deal now being worked on. The protocol would allow agency inspectors much more access than they have now to follow up on suspicions of undeclared Iranian nuclear activities or equipment. “In many other countries from time to time we request access to military sites when we have the reason to, so why not Iran?” he said. “If we have a reason to request access, we will do so, and in principle Iran has to accept it.” Amano said the agency can request access, clarification or a “short-notice inspection” anytime “there is any inconsistency (or) abnormality” to what Iran has declared as its nuclear work or assets.

Emily Harris: Why Everyone’s Talking About Israel’s New Justice Minister—Among the faces in Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s new right-wing government, one is drawing particular attention: Ayelet Shaked, the new justice minister. Shaked is secular, lives in liberal Tel Aviv, and has a background in the high-tech industry. Ari Soffer, the managing editor of Israel National News, calls her a patriot. “She’s a secular Jew, but she’s somebody for whom Jewish identity is very important. She represents Israelis who believe very strongly in Jewish values and the Jewish character of the state of Israel,” Soffer says. “In American terms, you’d call her a patriot.” Politically, Shaked is part of the religious, Zionist Jewish Home party, which draws its strength from Israeli settlers who live in the West Bank. Negotiations with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu just to name her justice minister were drawn out and difficult.

Blessings in the Book of Revelation is a book that you need to read, especially now.  There are blessings throughout the Scriptures but Revelation is the only book in the Bible actually containing a specific blessing for reading it. It’s repeated twice, once at the beginning and again at the end. This is the reason that I believe Revelation should be the first step toward studying biblical prophecy.
