The Conflict – Is it Really Complex?
a FaceBook posting
Why is it that every single person who says "Its complex" when talking about the Middle East, is almost always openly anti-Israel or one of those faux pro Israel people?
It’s not really complex at all! One side is an indigenous people, who returned home after the longest exile in history to join their brothers, and who never left physically and spiritually. The other side is descended from violent colonizers, who colonised the entire Middle East in the 7th century.
One side has tried to make peace, accepted unjust "compromises" and continuously offered land for peace. The other side has consistently refused every offer and demands concessions just to come to the negotiating table.
One side builds playgrounds in bomb shelters. The other side shelters bombs under playgrounds.
One side has equality for women, gay rights and religious freedom. The other side oppresses women, throws gays off roofs and allows no religious freedoms whatsoever.
One side wins Nobel prizes (26% of laureates) and contributes wonderful things to the world. The other side teaches children how to be better terrorists and contributed nothing else.
One side is called imperialists and colonisers, despite the fact that they control less than 1 percent of the land mass and number less than 12 million worldwide, and they are actually indigenous to the land they claim. The other side are members of an ethnicity and religion that at one point controlled 60 percent of the Middle Eastern land mass and now controls 99% of the middle eastern land mass and number almost 390 million world-wide.
One side just wants to live on their ancestral lands in peace. The other side wants to control the entire world under their religion of peace.
When you look at it in an unbiased and simple way you realize that the answer is pretty simple!

An incident at the Israeli embassy in Amman Sunday, July 23, left two Jordanians shot dead and an Israeli stabbed and in serious condition. This followed a long confrontation overnight between the Jordanian and Israeli governments, most likely at the highest level. Amman demands the Israeli guard surrendered for the investigation (in violation of and international law) into the incident. Israel refuses on the grounds that he has diplomatic immunity. (So much for being a friendly neighbor!)

Temple Mount is closed to Jews and non-Muslims on and off again! No surprise here – it was predicted! Instead of seizing an opportunity the weak, self-serving and corrupt leadership of Israel has no interest in doing anything that would remotely resembles progress in direction of achieving true Zionist goals – reclaiming Jewish sovereign right over the Temple Mount!
PM Netanyahu and the security cabinet made a surprising decision - The police explicitly recommended that the metal detectors are needed for security, and Jerusalem police chief Yoram Halevi said they can manage any expected Muslim violence around Jerusalem, the metal detectors should remain at the Temple Mount entrances. PM Netanyahu reversed himself, and decided that he is cancelling his recent decision to once again allow MKs to visit the Temple Mount. The other week he had decided that he would allow MKs to go up again. (With the ‘decisive’ leader as Netanyahu, no wonder that enemies of Israel are so bold!)
Israel has stopped pumping water groundwater out of two sites in the Negev, after raw sewage dumped from the Gaza Strip into a river which flows into Israel seeped into aquifers inside of Israel. Due to disputes between the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip and the PLO-governed Palestinian Authority, the supply of electricity to Gaza has been reduced over the past month, leading Hamas officials to shut down a waste treatment plant built with some $100 million in foreign aid.
The IDF has played a significant role in aiding Syrians afflicted by a civil war. The IDF revealed the extent of its humanitarian aid efforts, which include half a million liters of diesel fuel, 77 tons of clothing and shoes, 360 tons of food and a large amount of generators and water systems
Quote of the Week:
“In his book ‘The Art of War’, Sun Tzu speaks of putting an army on "death ground" as a way to ensure that they will fight until total victory has been achieved. What the world repeatedly fails to realize is that Israel is death ground for the Jewish people. It is the place where we stand as a people and say this far and no further.”– FaceBook message
Israel has Green Light from Republicans
The GOP unanimously approved a pro-Israel platform at their convention in July 2016 which stipulated:
“The US seeks to assist in the establishment of comprehensive and lasting peace in the Middle East, to be negotiated among those living in the region,”
David Friedman and Jason Greenberg, representing Donald Trump, participated in the drafting and were in complete agreement with the final text.
Gone was any reference to the Palestinian people or to a two-state solution. In addition, the platform included the words “We reject the false notion that Israel is an occupier.” If not an “occupier,” then presumably Israel is a sovereign. (Since Donald Trump became president of the United States, the White House stopped a routine ‘condemnation’ practice of the construction Jewish homes in Judea, Samaria and east Jerusalem!)
A bill that would criminalize boycotts against Israel has been signed by 45 US Senators and 237 Congressman. The so-called “Israel Anti-Boycott Act” would impose fines of up to $250,000 on any US citizen “engaged in interstate or foreign commerce” who supports a boycott of Israeli goods and services. (Will it become the law?)
