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”

Aliyah Above All

Liberal democracy is not possible in a country where at best a very narrow majority wants it and where the rest vote with Islamist parties. That is the current reality in Turkey which has had free and fair elections since the 1950s, yet has never elected a pro-democratic majority. Considering that Aliyah from Turkey willContinue reading “Aliyah Above All”

Who is Best for Aliyah?

Last year in a post on this blog did I endorse Kemal Kilicdaroglu as the opposition candidate for president of Turkey in the 2023 presidential elections. Let me now provide a more nuanced position. I support the candidate that is best for Aliyah, that is my position. Before writing that blog post I was unawareContinue reading “Who is Best for Aliyah?”

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”

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”

It is Imperative to Prevent an Invasion

President Erdogan has never given up hopes for a Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Syria. However, this is distinctly not in the interest of Turkey. It is furthermore in the interest of the Sabbatean community and thus also the Sabbatean-controlled Derin Devlet deep state domestic intelligence apparatus to ensure Israeli regional interests considering that the SabbateansContinue reading “It is Imperative to Prevent an Invasion”

How Iran is Instigating War

Why would Iran want a war in the Levant now? This is an excellent question that requires some elaboration. Iran is moderately convinced that Israel and America are deterred by Iranian weapons of mass destruction and will not dare to destroy the Iranian nuclear weapons program. However, Tehran is less certain when it comes toContinue reading “How Iran is Instigating War”

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”

Does Israel Want War with the Iranian Axis?

The view from Jerusalem regarding Iran’s nuclear intentions is rather befuddled. One day we hear that there is little risk that there will be a return to the JCPOA and the next day we hear that such return is imminent and these “assessments” are unwittingly cyclically repeated and so the master manipulators in Tehran mustContinue reading “Does Israel Want War with the Iranian Axis?”

Jerusalem and Tehran are Different Conceptual Universes

Israel and Iran are both looking forward to establishing a new regional order and neither side fears regional war. Nevertheless, the respective visions of the new regional order look completely different. Both sides envision establishing regional hegemony and removing each other from power. What is the reason for these radically different strategic conceptions? At theContinue reading “Jerusalem and Tehran are Different Conceptual Universes”

Hezbollah Suffers From Hubris

Hassan Nasrallah miscalculated in 2006 and he is miscalculating again and threatening war over the Karish gas field. Nasrallah and his Iranian sponsors are projecting their own misconceptions upon Israel and therefore assume that Israel is afraid of war with the Hezbollah-led Iranian axis. It is true that the Axis will be able to inflictContinue reading “Hezbollah Suffers From Hubris”

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”

Can Iran’s Apocalyptic Scheme be Thwarted?

If Iran did not believe that Iranian territorial control over the Twelver eschatological region was essential for the success of the planned Khomeinist man-made apocalypse as intended to prompt the reappearance of the Hidden Imam in Mecca, then surely Iran would not be so geostrategically obsessed with taking control over this region where the threeContinue reading “Can Iran’s Apocalyptic Scheme be Thwarted?”

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”

Northern Peace Will Come at a Heavy Cost

Iranian officials state over and over again that Israel will be destroyed if Israel destroys the Iranian nuclear weapons program. They literally mean what they say. What this means is that the entire Iranian axis (primarily Hezbollah) will engage in a frontal assault against Israel with projectiles, including ones with chemical warheads. (Iranian use ofContinue reading “Northern Peace Will Come at a Heavy Cost”

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”

Erdogan’s Invasion Threatens Vital Israeli Interests

Erdogan once more threatens to invade NES (North and East Syria). He threatened this already in November 2021 and his plans were apparently shelved by the Sabbatean-controlled Derin Devlet deep state domestic intelligence apparatus which has significant influence over both TAF (Turkish Armed Forces) and the Turkish government.  There are currently no moves on theContinue reading “Erdogan’s Invasion Threatens Vital Israeli Interests”

The Apostasy of Sabbatai Zevi

Rabbi Sabbatai Zevi, the Sabbatean messiah, was forced to convert to Islam by the Ottoman Grand Vizier under threat of gruesome death. What is less known is that Sabbatai Zevi subsequently became Bektashi, in hence voiding his apostasy as the Bektashi order is one of nine denominations of core Median Judaism. This of course wasContinue reading “The Apostasy of Sabbatai Zevi”

How Should Median Judaism be Announced?

I discovered core Median Jewry c. 2002 and began publishing the evidence in 2014. I have made no effort to go public with my findings other than writing online and few others than governments and intelligence agencies are aware of my writings, especially since I have few readers among the general public in Israel. TheContinue reading “How Should Median Judaism be Announced?”

The Price of Aggression

Let there be no doubt that if Hezbollah and the rest of the Iranian axis launch a frontal assault on Israel in response to Israel and America destroying the Iranian nuclear weapons program there will surely be a hefty price to pay. There will be consequences, there will be a major war in the northernContinue reading “The Price of Aggression”

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”

Who Will Invade Whom?

Israel and Iran have completely different assessments as to the outcome of the future conflict between Israel and the so-called “Axis of Resistance” in the Levant. Iran assumes that massive barrages of rockets and missiles, many of them with chemical warheads, will inflict such heavy damage on the Israeli home front and cause such disorientationContinue reading “Who Will Invade Whom?”

The New Agenda of the Derin Devlet

The upcoming visit by Israeli president Isaac Herzog to Ankara is a clear sign that the Sabbatean-controlled Derin Devlet deep state domestic intelligence apparatus  has gained the upper hand in the power struggle with Muslim Brotherhood intelligence within the MIT (National Intelligence Organization) and other state organs. Turkish foreign policy has for long been underContinue reading “The New Agenda of the Derin Devlet”

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”

Will American Jews Move to Israel?

300 000 American Jews live in Israel but the vast majority of American Jews have so far not chosen to make Israel their home. Will this change? The immigration of tens of millions of Median Jews to Israel will cause a tremendous deficit in highly educated persons in Israel in creating an opportunity for theContinue reading “Will American Jews Move to Israel?”

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 Israeli Annexations of Alawite and Druze Regions

Israel has no choice but to defeat Hezbollah after Hezbollah attempts to “annihilate Israel” with mass use of chemical weapons following upon Israel and America’s destruction of the Iranian nuclear weapons program. Hezbollah is dispersed throughout Lebanon and Syria and therefore defeating Hezbollah requires liberating Lebanon and Syria. This is self-defense, proportional and military necessity.Continue reading “The Israeli Annexations of Alawite and Druze Regions”

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”

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”

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?”

Median Aliyah is an Opportunity for Western Aliyah

With tens of millions of Median Jews immigrating to Israel will there be a critical shortage of persons with higher education in Israel. Although the ratio of graduates from institutions of higher education is relatively high in Turkey as it is an emerging economy, it is of course substantially lower than in highly economically developedContinue reading “Median Aliyah is an Opportunity for Western Aliyah”

Why I Oppose Messianism

Messianism is irrational since it is based on metaphysical wishful thinking. The two-state illusion is one such messianic folly which disregards that peace has to be built based on realistic expectations and not on messianic pipe dreams. While I do respect religion I reject messianic expectations according to which some irrational expectation will bring redemption.Continue reading “Why I Oppose Messianism”

Manifest Unreason

Regional events point to Median Jewish mass Aliyah (immigration) to Israel becoming enabled already in the next few years. The Vienna talks are going nowhere as the Khomeinist regime assesses that a nuclear agreement with the United States is not in the nuclear and economic interest of Iran. At the same time does Iran notContinue reading “Manifest Unreason”

Absorption of Median Jewry in Israel

How will absorption of Median Jews fare in Israel? Israel is a world-leader in successful absorption of immigrants. Since the top poskim (leading rabbinical authorities) of every generation have always been aware of core Median Jewry and recognized them as fully Jewish is there no issue whatsoever with their religious recognition as Jews. Furthermore, accumulatedContinue reading “Absorption of Median Jewry in Israel”

Is Palestinian Nationalism Irrational?

Palestinian nationalism is thoroughly based on Anti-Zionism, the third stage of Anti-Jewish bigotry with the earlier stages being Anti-Judaism and Anti-Semitism (in the narrow sense). Palestinian nationalism systematically racializes Jews in terms of all three stages of Anti-Semitism in the broader sense. Palestinian nationalism is thus primarily a form of racism and is as suchContinue reading “Is Palestinian Nationalism Irrational?”

Zionism Will Unite

One of the consequences of Aliyah (immigration) to Israel of tens of millions of Median Jews from the Middle East, Africa and China is that the political split in Zionism between left and right will disappear. The Zionist left certainly is not advocating for a two-state solution due to feeling sorry for the self-inflicted tragediesContinue reading “Zionism Will Unite”

The Danger of Messianism

The Jewish nation has a long history of failed messianisms, with usually profoundly tragic consequences for the Jews. The two-state illusion is different from the previous messianist movements in that the false messiah is not a person but an enemy government. The Palestinian Authority is not only Anti-Zionism incarnate but it is the most Anti-SemiticContinue reading “The Danger of Messianism”

The Death of Anti-Zionism

What will happen to Anti-Zionism when tens of millions of Median Jewish immigrants arrive in the land of Israel? Israel’s population will triple or quadruple and Israel will redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and Samaria while Jordan subsequently will annex Gaza. Israel will annex Median Jewish (Alawite and Druze) regions of Syria and LebanonContinue reading “The Death of Anti-Zionism”

Where Will Median Jews Settle?

The influx of tens of millions of Median Jewish immigrants to Israel offers an opportunity to populate the Negev desert in southern Israel. It is also a unique opportunity to bring millions of Median Jews to reside in Judea and Samaria. Millions of Median Jewish immigrants will no doubt also settle in expanded existing citiesContinue reading “Where Will Median Jews Settle?”

How Long Will it Take before the International Community Recognizes Judea and Samaria as Israeli?

The first step and the present stage for Israeli diplomacy is to seek greater diplomatic understanding that Israel intends to redeem and enfranchise Judea and Samaria once a critical mass of Median Jewish immigrants have arrived in Israel. The second step and later stage will be to seek actual recognition of Israeli sovereignty after IsraelContinue reading “How Long Will it Take before the International Community Recognizes Judea and Samaria as Israeli?”
