The increasing number of missiles deliberately fired from Gaza at
southern Israel's farms, villages and towns is a clear indictment of the
Hamas terror machine that rules and occupies the Gaza Strip. It
represents a catalog of Arab and Muslim war crimes.
There has been a 30% increase from the same period last year in the
number of lethal rockets slamming into Israeli civilian homes with all
the horror and misery that is inflicted upon the civilian population,
particularly upon the little children who live in constant fear of when
the next rocket will strike — usually with a mere 15 seconds warning.
In one day alone — June 21, 2012 — thirty one Hamas and Islamic Jihad
missiles fell on Israel causing damage and trauma. But you probably read
nothing about it in your local daily newspaper or saw or heard it
mentioned on the TV.
Since Israel unilaterally left Gaza, as an unheard of peace gesture in
2005, her hope that the Arabs in Gaza would create a society based upon
rational considerations, such as building hospitals, schools, or
creating the infrastructure for a normal society at peace with its
neighbor, has been shattered.
It was a pipe dream from the start and since 2005, when Israel's then
Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, ordered what became known as the
"Disengagement," — a euphemism for wrecking the lives of so many of his
own people — over 12,000 deadly Arab missiles have slammed into southern
Israel's civilian areas.
Ten thousand Israeli men, women and children were forcibly evicted by
Israeli police under the so-called disengagement from their Gaza Strip
farms and villages in order to prove Israel's peaceful intentions: those
Jewish civilians are mostly now still living as refugees within the
This is an indictment of the idiotic belief that still afflicts too many
Israeli leaders, mostly those on the Left, despite overwhelming
evidence to the contrary, that the Arab and Muslim world will accept a
non-Muslim state in land once conquered by Muslims in the name of Allah —
even though Jewish patrimony in its ancestral and biblical homeland
predates Islam by millennia.
What still evades the minds of too many Israeli and world leaders is the
reality that in Islamic belief, wherever the Muslim foot has trod
triumphal, that land forever is part of the Dar al-Islam (the House of Islam) and should it be lost, it then it becomes the Dar al-Harb
(the House of War) and it is a religious injunction upon all Muslims to
wage ceaseless war until it is recovered. Like the pernicious intrusion
into Europe and Great Britain of Islamic Sharia law, the 21st century
West is asleep and seemingly incapable of understanding that a 7th
century religious war is upon it and winning.
Meanwhile, with Egypt lurching ever more into the clutches of the Muslim
Brotherhood — thanks in large part to the foreign policies of President
Obama — and the 40 or so year old peace treaty between Egypt and Israel
practically torn in shreds by Egyptians, the Sinai Peninsula bordering
Israel is aflame with increasing anti-Israel terror attacks now
occurring along the entire length of the Israel-Egyptian border.
Remember, Israel gave away every last centimeter of the Sinai — a
wonderful buffer zone between Egypt and the Jewish state. This territory
consists of 97% of the so-called occupied territory Israel gave away in
return for a peace treaty written on a piece of paper. Now Israel's
eastern neighbor, Jordan, is in grave danger of also succumbing to
fanatical Islamist and jihadist control.
According to Khaled Abu Toameh, writing in the Jerusalem Post,
"Jordanian government officials say there are growing signs that the
kingdom's powerful Muslim Brotherhood organization has plans to
overthrow the regime.
"Today, most of the anti-regime demonstrations throughout the kingdom
are being initiated and led by Muslim Brotherhood supporters whose goal
is to turn Jordan into an Islamic republic.
"Many Arabs feel that President Barack Obama's endorsement of the Muslim
Brotherhood has emboldened the Islamists and increased their appetite
to drive moderate and secular rulers out of the Arab world."
Incidentally, a complaint to the BBC about why the media giant — which
exists through British taxpayer money — always displays a permanent bias
against Israel and never reports on Arab aggression against it,
elicited the outrageous response from a BBC spokesperson, as follows:
"... It is the policy of the BBC only to report on Palestinian attacks against Israel when Israel retaliates." Shameful.
Meanwhile Israeli aircraft hitting the Hamas and Islamic Jihad missile
gangs, but only after they have either fired their missiles or it
appears that they are on the verge of launching a lethal rocket attack,
does nothing for the one million hapless residents of southern Israel
whose lives are made permanently miserable by the evil that is launched
against them from the Gaza Strip.
We are witnessing Arab and Muslim war crimes on a never ending spiral of
horror inflicted upon Israel's civilian population and the world yawns.
Only when the Jewish state is provoked beyond endurance and — as all
nations have a right to do — defends itself and resists Palestinian
barbarism, aggression and cold blooded terror — does the world awake.
Predictably the 57 Arab and Muslim states then rush to the terminally
corrupt United Nations, which gleefully condemns not the Arab
perpetrators and victimizers, but Israel, the perennial victim.
Such a sick world should hearken to the biblical injunction in Genesis 12:3. It ignores it at its peril.
