Arab Kleptocrat Schemes To Keep The People He Represents In Poverty...Or A Day Ending In "Y"

I am under no illusions that the current peace plan, version 45A-2, will be any more successful than the previous ones, but it does serve to illuminate a few of the intractable problems in Arab society. Accepting the blatant dishonesty and unbelievable crookedness and corruption of its leaders is a fundamental flaw in their culture, and one that guarantees the continuation of their poverty, internal violence and existential ennui.

But that ennui is strangely coupled with an irrational belief that they will prevail, that they are the victors, and it is only the stubbornness of the international community that prevents them from succeeding in their ultimate goal of the destruction of Israel and the Jewish people. Their leaders lie to them about the causes of their desperately miserable lives, and they believe those lies instead of the evidence before them.

Abbas threatens to cut security ties with Israel, US

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas threatened to cut security ties with both Israel and the US on Saturday, in a lengthy speech delivered at an Arab League meeting in Egypt’s capital that denounced a White House plan for ending the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The US plan would grant the Palestinians limited self-rule in parts of the occupied West Bank, while allowing Israel to annex all its settlements there and keep nearly all of east Jerusalem.

Daniel Pipes has not been particularly impressive recently, no doubt in part because of his fundamental suspicion of all things Trump. But he has made the point, forcefully and eloquently that for the "Palestinians" to succeed, they must be beaten, both militarily and psychologically. Only then will they be able to accept the reality that Israel is almost certainly not going to lose to them or to any Arab or Muslim country or army or terrorist organization. Then they can get on with the business of creating something for themselves.

Israel needs to kill a lot more military-age Arab males before it will have peace. And Persians, too.

In this case it's more about internal corruption and clan leaders conniving against the broader common interest.

100 When Romans sacked Second Temple and took ,roughly, 250k Israelis back to Rome as slaves, they renamed the area, to wipe out the memory of the people. Romans liked that sort of thing. When Rome fell (shortly after), the area was called many things. But never Palestine. Till USSR decided to be thorn in the side of ...everybody and created this concept of Palestine.

107 Palestine was used by the Brits during their colonial period there.

But it's irrelevant. Underlying actual history, not terms, is the point (well, of this part of the taffy yank), and it's true that in that area, as in many many parts of the world prior to colonial presence or the last century, there was little to no "national" feeling or identity in the current sense.

When and whether "Palestine" was used is not important, the underlying history is (kinda, though not really the point either).

Historically there was Israel, which the Romans subdued. I believe that after Rome destroyed the temple in 70 AD and banished everyone from the area, they renamed it "Palestine" on their maps.

Jews always lived there, even after 70 AD.

Come the 20th century, when the Balfour Commission split up the land they gave a slice of land to the Jews to reconstitute Israel, and a large chunk to the Arabs which they called Jordan.

The current "Palestinians" are people who lived in the country of Jordan prior to 1967 (the "West Bank", which is actually the ancient Jewish areas of Samaria and Judea) who were displaced during the 1967 Six Day War. They have been renamed "Palestinians" by the Arabs, but they are citizens of the country of Jordan who've been displaced because their country Jordan lost a war against Israel.

Same with the "Palestinians" who live in the Gaza Strip. They are Egyptian citizens who were displaced from their homes when Egypt lost against Israel in 1967.

The other Arab countries keep them trapped in refugee camps breeding like rabbits as a weapon against Israel.

---

'We people' keep saying that there is no country and has never been any country called Palestine for anyone to legitimately claim as a homeland that they have any right to return to. Mainly because a lot of stupid people seem to think the savages that call themselves palestinians have 'legitimate grievances' that need to be considered so that we can all get along, or some such nonsense.
Just like anyone claiming grievances these days in order to wring concessions from free people, the correct response is to crush them utterly so that they abandon their crybully ways.
===
I'm not saying they're not shitheads, but why the insistence that they be called Jordanians?

---
Folks in the west bank were Jordanians when Jordan had a war with Israel and lost the territory. Folks in Gaza were Egyptians when Egypt similarly came up short in their effort to destroy Israel. So Jordanian and Egyptian or more appropriate terms for them than 'palestinian' even if Jordan and Egypt have no interest in taking them back.

Arabs lived there; Jews lived there. The Arabs decided to start a war with the Jews and lost. Now the Jews own it. That's how it works. Then the Arabs started another war, lost it, then another one and lost, then another one and lost. The Jews' claim to the ground is validated by their enforced and defended ownership.

One of the nastier parts of the Palestine situation is the stranglehold the various terror organizations have on the Palis themselves.

176 WASHINGTON - Joe Biden may have just received the
worst news of his campaign, as a new poll shows his support in his
firewall state of South Carolina collapsing along with his once-dominant
support among black voters, with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Tom
Steyer closing the gap.

How far back to we go to reward the defeated people with land and autonomy?

20 years?

50 years?

100 years?

1000 years?

Technically, every country on Earth should be broken up to give that country's loser "Palestinians" a chance to govern themselves and have a place to call their own.

I guess we should give the "Palestinians" all the area from the Jordan River to the Med Sea.

Then, let's give Lithuania it's empire back.

Then, the citizens of Rome should get all the territory of their Empire back.

Then, the Mongols.

Then, the Aztecs.

Where does it stop? It stops when people lose wars and someone stronger takes over. Fuck the "Palestinians".

Have you tried to travel around Okinawa (this worked better 30 years ago)? Oh, right, it's complicated .... because so much of it is *fucking US military reservation*, seized in a brutal war started by the idiots who LOST".

Have you ever visited Bolivia's Pacific coastal area? Oh right, you can't - because they *fucking lost it in a war they started, and lost*.

Have you ever visited ..... and so on.

Unsurprisingly, a large % of "educated, smart" people, when confronted with this basic obvious history and recounting of facts, are stunned into silence. Because they're not "educated", or "smart", in areas in which they have very strong "opinions".

Actually, the idiot just raised a topic, unintentionally, worth noting. Congressional support for Israel is unbelievably lower than any time in recent history. Something like 130 House members signed on to something that was unimaginable just a few years back (forget the specifics).

Anyway, Israel's not asleep at the switch and knows its former solid support in the Dem party has disappeared - and that American Jewry is a shadow of its former self in terms of reliability or sense - and hopefully this has only further pushed the wise course of hedging and planning on self-sufficiency in key areas.

2) Someone calls them out or actually argues the question they made.

I recall a few years back one scientist decided to do a widespread study of the Lebanese to see if he could pin down their ancestry. And his results were not surprising; he found genetic markers from Mesopotamia, from North Africa, from Greece, from Italy, from the Normans, and from the Franks - basically anybody who ever in history had an army campaigning around the Mediterranean left some of their people (or at least their children) behind in Lebanon, and the Lebanese are the sum total of all of them mixed together.

Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump
Many of the ads you are watching were paid for by Mini Mike Bloomberg. He is going nowhere, just wasting his money, but he is getting the DNC to rig the election against Crazy Bernie, something they wouldn't do for @CoryBooker and others. They are doing it to Bernie again, 2016.

Mini Mike is now negotiating both to get on the Democrat Primary debate stage, and to have the right to stand on boxes, or a lift, during the debates. This is sometimes done, but really not fair!

I hope Trump doesn't respond to this.

But the hair is real--if unorthodox , we know about the spray-on -tan and he's only obese by the stringent standards of the government charts.

But now we know that this is the route they're gonna go and try to out-Trump Trump with the insults.

The chances that John Kerry is considering how he could get into the race at this point and Hillary Clinton isn't already maniacally conspiring behind the scenes too
are ZERO

John Kerry - one of Biden's highest-profile endorsers overheard Sunday on phone at Des Moines hotel explaining what he would have to do to enter the presidential race amid "the possibility of Bernie Sanders taking down the Democratic Party down whole."

360 All Trump has to say in response to Nanny Bloomers insult is "I wish! Do you think I would waste paying money for fake hair that looks like this?"

Putting Captain Nevergivup in command of a Navy SEAL / Interrogation task force should put the fear of God's Wrath on all US enemies.

"Send 'em in to the Captain."

⚓ Puts him in the chair.
Straps suspect in. ⚓

A lean, intense US Navy Captain, with 4 gold strips and an oak leaf replacing the star on his summer whites shoulder board, (and no acorn on the leaf!) leans in and says, "I have ways of making you talk." The sound of a dull dental drill fills the room. The doomed suspect tries to focus on the Captain's dark hair, shot through with silver strands, but fails.

*Screams*

"I'll talk. I'll talk.
What do you want to know?"
