Counter-Terrorism is the Correct Paradigm in Samaria

Israel’s counter-terrorism operations in Samaria have been described by UN officials as a perceived need for stopping an ostensible “cycle of violence”. US officials on their side make the case for what is described as “de-escalation”. The problem rather is the existence of Palestinian terrorism which must be preempted by Israel. If there are noContinue reading “Counter-Terrorism is the Correct Paradigm in Samaria”

Not Realizing Jewish Rights on the Temple Mount Poisons Arab-Israeli Relations

Successive Israeli governments have since 1967 presumed that it is not in Israel’s interest to restore Jewish rights on the Temple Mount. The issue has consistently been regarded as one of religion, nostalgia, sentimentalism and even messianism. The view consistently taken has been that the Israeli national interest requires maintaining the status quo. However, theContinue reading “Not Realizing Jewish Rights on the Temple Mount Poisons Arab-Israeli Relations”

Israel Should Incorporate Parts of Judea and Samaria

The new Israeli government is committed – under the right conditions – to incorporate parts of Judea and Samaria into Israel proper. This most likely means that the Netanyahu government will wait and see if a Republican president is elected in the United States in November 2024 before deciding on applying Israeli sovereignty to partsContinue reading “Israel Should Incorporate Parts of Judea and Samaria”

There is no Danger of Religious War

The notion that events on the Temple Mount, specifically, unexpected body movements by Jews there and more broadly hypothetical Israeli reassertion of Jewish rights on the Mount would trigger a religious war is completely baseless. This old scarecrow is complete and utter nonsense. Could anyone please describe a real and detailed  realistic scenario? No oneContinue reading “There is no Danger of Religious War”

No More Racism Please

Are Muslims really wild animals who go on killing sprees murdering “infidels” for no reason at all? That seems to be the view of the so-called “international community” which believes that the apocalypse will commence if an Israeli cabinet minister visits the Temple Mount, the holiest place in Judaism. They should be reminded that theContinue reading “No More Racism Please”

It’s About the Jews Stupid!

Turkey occupies parts of northern Syria including what was the predominantly Kurdish Afrin (Kurdish: Efrin) region. The Kurdish population was largely expelled and much of their olive trees have been cut down. Turkey as the aggressor and occupying power operates a settlement program funded by Gulf states to Arabize the region and settle it withContinue reading “It’s About the Jews Stupid!”

What is a Genocidal Nation?

Germany during the Nazi period was once a genocidal nation and what is known as the Palestinian people (which is a historically recent colonial construction) have developed into something far worse. I am not arguing that the Palestinians are committing a Second Holocaust but rather that they intensely desire and intend to perpetrate one. NeverContinue reading “What is a Genocidal Nation?”

Not for Sentimental or Religious Reasons

Israeli state strategists have treated the issue of the Temple Mount as a mere sentimental and religious one. This has also been the line promoted by national-religious advocates of reappropriation of Jewish heritage and Jewish rights on the Mount. For Palestinian strategists in contrast is this a matter of immense strategic importance. For Palestinian strategistsContinue reading “Not for Sentimental or Religious Reasons”

What is the Most Shocking?

Israeli state strategists are no doubt mostly male, Ashkenazi and secular. For them the Temple Mount is mere real estate like any other real estate in Jerusalem. They have overlooked the strategic-symbolic value of a permanent Jewish presence on the Temple Mount in terms of persuading the Islamic world that Israel is here to stay.Continue reading “What is the Most Shocking?”

Honor is About Self-Respect

Honor is extremely important in the cultures of the broader Middle East. What is honor? It is about self-respect and so genuine peacemaking in the region therefore takes place between mutually honorable parties. The honorable is strong and self-respecting. This is the basis of the Abraham Accords. This was never the case with the coldContinue reading “Honor is About Self-Respect”

Defending the Status Quo

There is no reason whatsoever why new Israeli police minister Itamar Ben-Gvir should not visit the Temple Mount. Will such a visit cause bloodshed? Palestinian terrorists do not need an excuse to cause bloodshed and so no peaceful act of visiting the most sacred site in Judaism can be the cause of bloodshed. It isContinue reading “Defending the Status Quo”

The New Israeli Government Represents an Opportunity for Peace

The Biden administration often repeats its commitment to resolving the Palestinian issue through an infamously failed formula which was always dead on arrival due to being founded on outright false premises constituting on the American side simply wishful thinking and refusal to learn from recent Israeli history. What is peculiar is that the Biden administrationContinue reading “The New Israeli Government Represents an Opportunity for Peace”

The International Community Need not Worry About Legalization

This of course is a time when many in the international community are worried about the long overdue legalization of unauthorized outposts constructed on public lands in Area C of Judea and Samaria. These outposts lie between authorized indigenous Israeli communities. These are areas which were always intended to become part of sovereign Israel. OfContinue reading “The International Community Need not Worry About Legalization”

The Mediterranean Mirage

Hassan Nasrallah made a televised speech expressing cautious praise for the US proposal for a new border line between the exclusive economic zones of Israel and Lebanon in the Mediterranean sea. However, he notably did not explicitly accept the proposal. It is important to be cognizant that Lebanon or rather “Hezbollahstan” is an Iranian protectorateContinue reading “The Mediterranean Mirage”

The State Department Does not Get It

The State Department has recently made pronouncements on the violence in Samaria, calling on “both sides” to refrain from “provocations” and “return to the peace process”. This is peculiar since the Palestinian Authority is certainly not behind the violence and the parties which are, namely the designated Jihadist terrorist organizations of Hamas and Palestinian IslamicContinue reading “The State Department Does not Get It”

The Two-State Solution is Dead on Arrival

Why is the Palestinian Authority trying to promote UN membership for the non-existent “State of Palestine” despite an assured US veto in the UN Security Council? The apparent purpose is to pressure liberal democracies into recognizing Palestinian statehood with the goal of torpedoeing peace.  The PA is quite comfortable with the status quo and itsContinue reading “The Two-State Solution is Dead on Arrival”

What Will Happen After the Destruction of the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Program?

A weekend interview in the Israeli daily Israel Hayom provided an insight into the perspectives of Israeli decision-makers. The interview was with one colonel T; the head of the IDF General Staff Strategy and Third-Circle Directorate. Ostensibly was the interview a sales pitch in order to persuade Israeli elected politicians to engage more in Iran-relatedContinue reading “What Will Happen After the Destruction of the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Program?”

Why the World Lost Interest in the Palestinian Issue

When will Median Jews immigrate to Israel in the tens of millions? This is only a matter of time. What is at stake is whether President Erdogan and the AKP will lose power in Turkey in the June 2023 elections and approximately 20 million Turkish Median Jews will be allowed to leave for Israel. ForContinue reading “Why the World Lost Interest in the Palestinian Issue”

What is Behind the Gaza Blood Libels?

During and after Operation Breaking Dawn in Gaza, the usual blood libels proliferated. Jews are once more accused of murdering (i.e. intentionally killing) children and Israel is accused against all evidence of targeting civilians. Some governments are simply as usual echoing the standard Anti-Semitic propaganda of the Palestinian Authority while others are making independent Anti-SemiticContinue reading “What is Behind the Gaza Blood Libels?”

The PA Will Learn Neither From the Past nor From the Future

There was once upon a time when the fate of ten Assyrian-deported tribes of the northern Kingdom of Israel was unknown, but no longer so, the entire international community is keenly aware of the whereabouts of the tens of millions of their endogamous descendants although this is not yet known to the general public. WhatContinue reading “The PA Will Learn Neither From the Past nor From the Future”

Genocide Begins with Words

Genocides are discursive phenomena in the sense that they begin with words and end in bloodshed. The war on Israel has always been about exterminating the Jews although that goal is usually not explicitly spelled out. How is that so? There is a consensus in Palestinian society that the Jews will have to be completelyContinue reading “Genocide Begins with Words”

Nothing Except Military Action Will Stop Iran’s Nuclear Weapons Program

There was a disagreement during the meeting in Israel between President Biden and Prime Minister Lapid on the question of Iran’s nuclear weapons program. Prime Minister Lapid insisted that only deterrence would persuade Iran to sign a nuclear agreement while President Biden insisted that diplomacy was still the best way forward. Both are wrong sinceContinue reading “Nothing Except Military Action Will Stop Iran’s Nuclear Weapons Program”

Israel’s Indigenous Restoration Project is Rational

The Palestinian problem will be resolved when at least 10 million Median Jews have immigrated to Israel and the Jewish state redeems and enfranchises the entire Judea and Samaria with Jordan subsequently annexing Gaza and any plans for partition are thus redundant. It is nevertheless interesting to know the outline of how Israel kept theContinue reading “Israel’s Indigenous Restoration Project is Rational”

Will the International Community Bestow Recognition upon the Peace?

There is now widespread understanding in the international community that the two-state solution was always stillborn and no one likes being fooled a thousand times. International leaders and diplomats still pay lip service to the “two-state solution” and hypothetical “Palestinian statehood”, yet few informed people in the international community sincerely believe in those things nowadays.Continue reading “Will the International Community Bestow Recognition upon the Peace?”

Israel’s Demographic Future

The resolution of the Palestinian issue is dependent upon very significant Jewish demographic growth in Israel. There would have to be a ten million growth in Israel’s Jewish population considering that most potential immigrants have lower fertility rates than Muslims in Israel and Judea/Samaria. Israel would subsequently redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and SamariaContinue reading “Israel’s Demographic Future”

BDS is not a Civil Rights Movement

The BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) “movement” (a PA intelligence outfit) claims to be a civil rights movement but is this really so? BDS does not engage in any civil rights advocacy in Israel nor does it do so in Judea/Samaria and Gaza. BDS is explicitly unconcerned with the civil rights of Palestinians elsewhere inContinue reading “BDS is not a Civil Rights Movement”

The Role of Allah in Palestinian Views of the Future

Most Palestinians are convinced with absolute confidence that Israel will eventually be vanquished and that 7 million Israeli Jews will be removed from Israel. Why is this so you may wonder? 1) First there is the belief that God is on the side of the Muslims and that this is the reason for the historicalContinue reading “The Role of Allah in Palestinian Views of the Future”

It’s the Consensus Stupid!

There is much international hope pinned to a future successor to Mahmoud Abbas making peace with Israel. However, to personalize this issue, to think that the problem of Palestinian rejectionism is limited to first Yasser Arafat and then Mahmoud Abbas is myopic at best. Palestinian society is thoroughly rejectionist. The Palestinian consensus states that aContinue reading “It’s the Consensus Stupid!”

The Danger of Preemptive Apocalypse

Tehran is currently moderately convinced that America and Israel will not dare to destroy the Iranian nuclear weapons program. This is one of the reasons for its rejectionism in Vienna. Nevertheless, on Quds Day, Hezbollah secretary-general Hassan Nasrallah threatened that Iran might attack Israel directly if Israeli sabotage operations against the Iranian nuclear weapons programContinue reading “The Danger of Preemptive Apocalypse”

Open Letter to Israel’s Arab Allies

Israel has received official diplomatic protests from Jordan and the UAE for cracking down on rioters on the Temple Mount who threw down rocks on Jews near the Western Wall.  It is the longstanding Arab position that the Temple Mount and East Jerusalem should be part of a future Palestinian state. Notwithstanding that this forContinue reading “Open Letter to Israel’s Arab Allies”

The Foot-Dragging Must End

Unfortunately, the West does not want Ukraine to fully defeat Russia. Before the invasion was the universal assumption in the West that Ukraine was doomed and would only be able to survive through guerilla warfare. The heroic ZSU (Armed Forces of Ukraine) stunned an entire world in being able to hold back against the RussianContinue reading “The Foot-Dragging Must End”

Why was the Palestinian Authority Established?

Neither Israel nor the PLO signed the Oslo Accords in good faith. The PLO was founded to destroy Israel and has never abandoned its Anti-Zionist zeal to destroy the Jewish state. Israel of course was keenly aware of this fact but sought to unburden itself of military administration of millions of Palestinians. Palestinian autonomy wasContinue reading “Why was the Palestinian Authority Established?”

What do the Palestinians Want?

Palestinians of course are diverse and not all Palestinians are the same but we should nevertheless ask ourselves what the Palestinians want based on analyzing Palestinian media, Palestinian education, Palestinian politics, Palestinian opinion polls and Palestinian historiography.  Do the Palestinians want a Palestinian state alongside Israel? The Palestinian movement has rejected many diplomatic offers forContinue reading “What do the Palestinians Want?”

Israel Too Wants to Survive

Last year an Anti-Semite was elected president of Chile. The same thing could happen in the United States. Gone are the days when it was assured that it would always be a moderate who would be elected president of the United States. Support for Israel is declining dangerously among young Americans, including among young RepublicansContinue reading “Israel Too Wants to Survive”

The Strategy of Mansour Abbas

The Islamist Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928 by Egyptian school teacher Hassan al-Banna to establish a worldwide caliphate run under an Islamist version of sharia law. The global Muslim Brotherhood has three pillars. 1) The original underground fraternal organization as organized into national branches. 2) The front organizations including NGOs, mosques and political partiesContinue reading “The Strategy of Mansour Abbas”

The Aman Conceptzia

There is a dispute within Aman (Israeli military intelligence) regarding the intentions of Hezbollah. Is Hezbollah an Iranian proxy or is it a Lebanese patriotic organization? Is Hezbollah primarily interested in taking over Israel or taking over Lebanon? Of course, Hezbollah is run by one man, Hassan Nasrallah who makes all important decisions and althoughContinue reading “The Aman Conceptzia”

Regionwide War and Global Terror

Iran does not fear America which it considers bruised by war and defeated by international Jihadism. In the Khomeinist Weltanschauung is Israel merely one of the tentacles of the “worldwide” American-Jewish “octopus” and so Tehran believes that Jerusalem cannot independently decide on destroying Iran’s nuclear weapons program without a green light from Washington. Therefore willContinue reading “Regionwide War and Global Terror”

The Palestinian Apartheid Strategy

Since the collapse of the Oslo process in the year 2000 has the Palestinian Authority (PA) practiced a strategy of biding for time while rejecting all proposals for ending the conflict, which Palestinians describe as “the conspiracy to liquidate the Palestinian issue”. The calculus is that time is on the side of the Palestinians. TheContinue reading “The Palestinian Apartheid Strategy”

Take Anti-Zionism Seriously

There is a fundamental problem with two-state messianism and that is that it does not take the Anti-Zionism of the Palestinian Authority seriously. Why are Palestinian Authority schools teaching Palestinian children about ostensible “Jewish conspiracies”? Why are they taught that the Jews have no history in Israel? Why are they taught that the destruction ofContinue reading “Take Anti-Zionism Seriously”

The Palestinian Interest

What is the Palestinian interest? There are two perspectives to this. The first perspective assumes that the Palestinian interest lies in fighting the Jewish state until the entire Jewish population in accordance with the Palestinian consensus has been “removed” from the land, i.e. exterminated since there is nowhere to deport the Jews. Palestinians have beenContinue reading “The Palestinian Interest”

Denazification of Judea and Samaria

Once a critical mass of Median Jewish immigrants have arrived in Israel will Israel redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and Samaria and the Jordanian royal family will subsequently be extremely pleased to annex Gaza. The arrival of tens of millions of Median Jewish immigrants to Israel will put an unprecedented strain on the IsraeliContinue reading “Denazification of Judea and Samaria”

The Palestinian Narrative is not Legitimate

It has often been claimed that peace requires accepting that there are two competing narratives, one Israeli and one Palestinian, but is this really true? What has not been considered is that the Palestinian narrative is Anti-Zionist, meaning opposed to peace with Israel. Therefore legitimizing the Palestinian narrative as an obstacle to peace makes peaceContinue reading “The Palestinian Narrative is not Legitimate”

The Victims of Civilization

Indigenous nations are victims of civilizations, not just one civilization but civilizations generally. This is obfuscated by Postcolonialism which epistemologically privileges Islamist imperialists and Arab colonialists over their victims, including the Jews and other indigenous nations of the MENA region. Colonialism and imperialism are not exclusively Western phenomenons but are inherent to civilization generally. PostcolonialismContinue reading “The Victims of Civilization”

Tehran’s Intention to “Annihilate America”

On January 4, 2022; Ali Fadavi, the deputy head of the IRGC explicitly threatened on Hezbollah’s al-Manar television station to “annihilate America”. The threat of extermination has long been reserved for the “Small Satan” and now Iran reveals that it plans to exterminate the “Great Satan” as well. Is this a serious threat or isContinue reading “Tehran’s Intention to “Annihilate America””

The US Must Clarify on Disengagement from Islamdom

The US suffers from a global credibility deficit. America’s adversaries no longer fear the United States and Middle Eastern allies of the United States are all convinced that the US intends to disengage from Islamdom, yet the US denies this. Iran calculates that in the event of the US and Israel destroying the Iranian nuclearContinue reading “The US Must Clarify on Disengagement from Islamdom”

Why Israel Must Keep its Options Open

There has been tremendous mistrust between the Biden administration and the Israeli government on account of Israel’s strategic intentions vis-a-vis China and America’s strategic intentions vis-a-vis Iran. Israel now understands that there will be no nuclear deal with Iran because Tehran has no interest in such an agreement. The US and Israel are jointly trainingContinue reading “Why Israel Must Keep its Options Open”

Subconscious Racism is a Strategic Problem for Israel

Operation SIG is more active than ever worldwide although now managed by PA intelligence rather than by the KGB which founded Operation SIG. The propaganda discourses of Operation SIG are particularly insidious considering their reliance on subconscious racism against Jews and conscious, yet false universalism since it is based on deliberate racist discrimination within discourses,Continue reading “Subconscious Racism is a Strategic Problem for Israel”

Why the International Objections do not Hold Water

What are the counterarguments to Israel redeeming and enfranchising the entire Judea and Samaria after Israel has received a critical mass of Median Jewish immigrants and for Jordan to subsequently annex Gaza? “It will not resolve the question of descendants of ex-refugees.” Yes it will not, but that is irresoluble since no Arab interlocutor willContinue reading “Why the International Objections do not Hold Water”

Median Jews Settling in Judea and Samaria will Hasten International Recognition

Members of the international community constantly repeat that the much touted “two-state solution” will at some point expire due to continued indigenous construction in Judea and Samaria. That is certainly not something to fear, in fact that should be welcomed. Of course the particular version of the two-state solution according to the so-called “international parameters”,Continue reading “Median Jews Settling in Judea and Samaria will Hasten International Recognition”

Is America Planning to Disengage from Islamdom?

Middle Eastern governments are convinced that the Biden administration is intent on continuing the Trump administration policy of disengagement from Islamdom, yet the US government denies this. Who should we believe? Assuming that the governments of the region are correct in their unanimous assessment of US intentions, a plausible explanation would then be that theContinue reading “Is America Planning to Disengage from Islamdom?”
