NEW YORK, August 21, 2017

By Caroline Glick

On Wednesday, President Reuven Rivlin sent a letter of support to the American Jewish community in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, last Saturday.

On the surface, his move made sense – the largest Diaspora community is concerned about the growing profile of viciously antisemitic forces on the Right. But at a deeper level, Rivlin's move was detrimental.

Rivlin's letter channeled a communal posture that ignores the actual state of the Jewish community. In so doing, it made it more difficult for Jewish Americans to recognize and surmount the dangers they face.

The American Jewish community is rightly concerned about neo-Nazis and other white supremacist groups that are gaining more and more attention these days. The fact that antisemitism was the dominant theme of a rally ostensibly organized to oppose the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a public park reveals the potency and centrality of Jew-hatred as an organizing tool for white supremacists in America.

President Donald Trump's remarks on Tuesday, where he claimed that only some of the people participating in the protest were white supremacists and the rest were just there to protect a monument, were hurtful. On Thursday, The New York Times published interviews with rally participants that bore out Trump's claims. They said they were only at the rally to protect the statue and do not harbor white supremacist views.

The fact is that the rhetoric of white supremacists on Israel and Jews is largely indistinguishable from the language of the far Left. Both insist that "Zionists" control the US government, media and banking system and use their control to advance the fortunes of the illegitimate "Jewish ethno-state."

Maybe they were telling the truth. But it is hard to believe people who oppose white supremacism and Jew-hatred would willingly march under swastika flags to the roar of Nazi chants.

Whatever the case, Trump's equivocation was distressing.

But then, it wasn't unprecedented for a president to obfuscate the potency of antisemitism in political violence.

In February 2015, a terrorist aligned with Islamic State entered the Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket in Paris on a Friday afternoon and held the Jewish shoppers hostage while killing four of them.

When asked about the event, then-president Barack Obama denied the massacre was an antisemitic attack. He referred to the victims as "a bunch of guys in a deli." The perpetrators were merely "a bunch of violent, vicious zealots."

When asked to clarify if Obama really meant to deny the attack was an antisemitic assault, both the White House and State Department spokespeople insisted, repeatedly, that the attack was not antisemitic.

The administration only deigned to acknowledge the truth in clarifications on Twitter, which it belatedly released, and which included the outright lie that the administration had said the attack was antisemitic all along.

The Obama administration's mind-melting refusal to acknowledge the attack was anti-Jewish bespoke its larger policy of denying that Jews are specifically targeted for annihilation by Islamic terrorists. The implications of the policy of denial for the safety of Jews throughout the world, including in the US, were self-evident.

And yet, the American Jewish community preferred to ignore the whole thing.

Jeffrey Goldberg, Obama's favored Jewish journalist, tweeted, "FWIW [for what it's worth], the Obama Administration has been pretty clear in its condemnations of European antisemitism over time."

Today, the same Goldberg who underplayed and denied what can at best be called Obama's diffident response to anti-Jewish violence, has been leading the charge against Trump.

Among other things, Goldberg likened the counterprotesters at Charlottesville to the American soldiers who stormed the beaches at Normandy.

In Goldberg's conflation of neo-Nazis with real Nazis and the far-left counterprotesters in Charlottesville to US forces, we see the real issue at the heart of the maelstrom now dominating US public life.

The real taboo Trump broke in his remarks following last weekend's deadly riot was not his equivocation about the relative badness of the neo-Nazis. His real offense was his insistence that the counterprotesters – the ones Goldberg and his colleagues liken to World War II partisans and Allied forces – were also violent.

And yet they were. And Goldberg and his colleagues know they were.

In an ironic twist of history's knife, the day of the riots, the September issue of The Atlantic monthly, where Goldberg serves as editor, hit the newsstands. The cover story, written by Peter Beinart, one of the stars of the American Jewish Left, was inconveniently titled, "The rise of the violent Left."

Beinart's article chronicled the violence and lawlessness of antifa, the radical group that organized the counterprotest in Charlottesville. Antifa is a group of radical goons who stand behind the violence that has plagued US college campuses for the past several years. All the violent protests – from Vermont to California – where conservative speakers were blocked from addressing students by rioting students who burned buildings and assaulted their fellow students who wished to attend the lectures – were antifa productions.

And antifa's operations go well beyond the walls of campuses. As Beinart notes, it was antifa rioters who physically assaulted Trump supporters as they walked to their cars at the end of a Trump rally in San Jose, California, last summer.

The purpose of antifa's violence is not merely to deny freedom of speech to those whose positions it opposes. It is also to prevent normal relations between Democrats and Republicans and between progressives and conservatives.

Hence, as Beinart noted, this past April, antifa threatened to use physical violence against participants in Portland, Oregon's annual Rose Festival parade where the local Republican Party was, as usual, scheduled to march along with their Democratic counterparts. The event, which has taken place annually since 1907, was canceled.

Antifa is problematic for American Jews specifically because it operates in a coalition of far-left groups that all hate Israel and believe that just as Republicans and conservatives should be banned from participating in public life, so American Jews who support Israel should be silenced. All of its coalition partners support the destruction of Israel and castigate the Jewish state as criminal. All bar Jews who support Israel – or even are proud of their Jewish identity – from participating in their events.

Hence, Linda Sarsour, the BDS leader who was elevated to the top of the US feminist movement when she served as co-chairwoman of the Women's March against Trump, insists that Zionists cannot be feminists.

Hence Black Lives Matter, the anti-police group that is a core member of the antifa coalition, libeled, in its mission statement, Israel as an "apartheid" state which is carrying out a "genocide" against the Palestinians.

Hence, Democratic Socialists of America, another core group in the antifa coalition, just passed a resolution at its annual convention to officially join the BDS movement. The vote was reportedly greeted with jubilant chants of "From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be free."

The fact is that the rhetoric of white supremacists on Israel and Jews is largely indistinguishable from the language of the far Left. Both insist that "Zionists" control the US government, media and banking system and use their control to advance the fortunes of the illegitimate "Jewish ethno-state."

David Duke, one of the leaders of the white supremacists in the US, wrote a fan letter to Roger Waters, the far-left, openly antisemitic musician who leads the BDS movement.

So from the American Jewish community's perspective, there ought to be no distinction between its abhorrence and concern over the white supremacists and its concerns and abhorrence of the radical Left. Indeed, the community should be more concerned over the latter because its assaults are more direct and more frequent.

And even more ominously, whereas no Republican leaders – including Trump – wish to be associated with white supremacists, mainstream Democratic leaders are increasingly supportive of the BDS movement and other anti-Israel groups. So it is that formerly pro-Israel New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and formerly pro-Israel New Jersey Sen. Corey Booker are embracing the BDS movement.

And yet, rather than sound the alarms or fight the growing power and influence of the anti-Jewish far Left in their political home, the American Jewish leadership is ignoring the danger and devoting itself to criminalizing Trump, his advisers and supporters.

Whereas the Anti-Defamation League had nearly nothing to say about either Sarsour or Cong. Keith Ellison, with his anti-Jewish record of statements from his service in the antisemitic Nation of Islam, ADL leader Jonathan Greenblatt insisted Monday that Trump must investigate his closest advisers for alleged ties to white supremacists.

The alleged "ties" of the likes of Trump aides Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka to white supremacists are the invention of The Forward newspaper, which has relentlessly libeled both men – and particularly Gorka – without ever producing a shred of evidence to back up its allegations.

Rather than acknowledge its errors, this month the Forward took its campaign a step farther when it published an extraordinary op-ed titled "19 people Jews should worry about more than Sarsour."

Prominently placed between Gorka and Bannon and the neo-Nazis on the one side and the leaders of Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas, and Trump himself on the other, was Mort Klein, the president of the Zionist Organization of America.

In other words, for the Forward, pro-Israel American Jews of the type assaulted by antifa and its comrades, and pro-Israel presidential advisers are more dangerous to the community than Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, and of course, Sarsour herself who embraces Jew-killing terrorists and says that Jewish Israel-supporters must be shunned.

Trump's electoral victory was a revolutionary event in US history. Tens of millions of American voters supported Trump because he promised to "drain the swamp," in Washington and serve the needs of the people who the swamp cast asunder.

A big part of that swamp is the Left that insists it is above criticism while its opponents on the Right are deplorable racists unworthy of consideration. When Trump called out the far Left along with the neo-Nazis for their violence at Charlottesville, he was keeping his pledge to his voters and upending one of the most cherished myths of the hated "establishment."

Given that the white supremacists and radical leftists converge in their hatred of Jews, it is important for the American Jewish community and for America as a whole to embrace Trump's actions. He is not engaging in moral equivalence between good and evil. He is exercising moral clarity. Without such clarity, the forces of Jew-hatred in the US will never be defeated. Without such clarity, the political position, security and freedom of American Jews will grow increasingly imperiled.

Israel's job, to the extent it has one in the current fight plaguing the US, is to point out this truth, not join the bandwagon in obfuscating it. Trump is far from a perfect mouthpiece for this essential battle against Jew-haters on the Right and the Left.

But at least he is using his mouth to sound the battle cry. For this he should be applauded by Israelis and American Jews alike.

Shemittah Rediscovered OP Ed: On Charlottesville and Condemning Trump on his Immediate Failure to Condemn the Neo Nazis and White Supremacists


Dear Trump Condemners, 

I think the left is hypersensitive about Trump's rhetoric, totally ignoring the anti Trump rhetoric.  Perhaps if they look at themselves in the mirror, they themselves are guilty of what they are accusing Trump of.  Angry people often project their own biases on others.    If they call Trump a racist it is because they are guilty of racism...   A faulty perception is not based on an objective reality but on a personal perception of one's own reality. 

I sincerely believe that Trump is a person who hates Neo Nazis and White Supremacy... no different than you and I.  I believe he knows fully well that the Holocaust was evil and that what the Nazis did and stand for is evil.   

Anti Trump pundits are accusing Trump of equating the Neo Nazis and White Supremacists with peaceful Anti Neo Nazis protesters giving the public the wrong impression that they are possibly both to blame and equally guilty.  

Actually Trump is lumping the evil Neo Nazis with violent Antifa, (Anti fascists) Anti Neo Nazis. As I see it, Trump is equating all Supremacists be it White Supremacists,  Black Supremacists, and Islamic Supremacists as evil. 

Suni Muslims fighting for ISIS and Shiite Muslims fighting for a nuclear Iran are on opposite sides. Does that make one more Kosher than the other?

I also agree with  Ivanka and Jared his daughter and son in law that he should have immediately condemned the Neo Nazis and the White Supremacists calling them by name.   In fact I agree with the Algemeiner article that Trump should now encourage an investigation as per why the police did not protect the shul in Charlottesville adequately and why the Neo Nazis had a permit to protest while parading with guns.  This error in judgement clearly had extremely scary and threatening implications to the local Jewish Synagogue.  One can conjecture that had the police somehow reigned in this violent and hateful Neo Nazi group for their provocative behavior, perhaps this other tragedy, the car ramming, would never had occurred. 

Let us respectfully encourage President Trump to demand investigation and prosecution of those accountable for lack of general security before we criticize his delayed condemnation of this White Supremacist group. Surely the President wants to prove to all that he is sincere in his desire to fight such evil and let the findings and subsequent actions taken against a lapse in proper security, prevent another Charlottesville in the future!

Nazis were terribly dangerous in the 1940s. They partnered with the Mufti of Jerusalem, the forerunner to the PLO.  They built gas chamber factories for mass murder. They were on the side of evil,  the side of Amalek... 

Today, the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran are far more dangerous than neo Nazi's. They have the wherewithal and technology for global destruction. Do White Supremacists have nuclear bomb capability or weapons of mass destruction at their disposal?  I don't want to minimize their evil but compared to ISIS and IRAN these guys are a piece of cake.  Are all of Trump's bashers condemning ISIS and IRAN with such passion and self righteousness as they are condemning Trump for having not condemned the Neo Nazi's and the White Supremacists fast enough. 

I smell an ulterior motive. 

Trump was silent for a day or two in his condemnation of  the Neo Nazis and the White Supremacists. Maybe he felt indebted to individuals who he felt were not Neo Nazi's nor White Supremacist but merely peaceful protesters and did not want to lump them together.

When he did finally condemn, he made a distinction and condemned the Neo Nazis and White Supremacist while defending the peaceful protesters right to protest the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue... and I feel it was completely authentic. But we can agree to disagree.. 

The liberal and leftist media will find endless reasons to be critical of Trump and his rhetoric.  I would somehow respect their objectivity if I saw that they gave Trump credit when it was deserved and condemn the hateful rhetoric against Trump as well. . When Congressman House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was shot and wounded at baseball practice in Virginia, Trump did not take advantage of the situation to condemn all the hateful rhetoric against the Republicans and the hateful rhetoric against Trump personally. 

It is quite probable that toxic rhetoric influenced this gunman and thereby endangered the lives of our Congressmen. Trump used the opportunity to unify the Nation,  This seemed to have worked for a few days. It brought much praise from those who were grateful that he did not exact revenge on those whose hateful rhetoric puts his own life, Donald Trump, the President of the USA,  and the life of dedicated American public servants in mortal danger.  

However, why did they just praise his restraint but didn't  come out and call for some accountability and condemn the hateful anti Trump rhetoric of the liberal and leftist media?

I have not seen the liberal and leftist media condemn hateful rhetoric coming from comedians who show images of Trump's beheaded head and then whine when Barron, Trump's son and Melania, Trump's wife are horrified.  I did not hear condemnations of the offensive Shakespeare in the Park rendition of a beheaded Trump as being in bad taste.. not to mention terribly disrespectful  

Trump was totally correct to say that there was hatred among both groups.  I suspect that evil elements of these groups, be it those in Black lives Matters who advocate for black supremacy or those who advocate for Islamic Supremacy and the Neo Nazis who advocate for White Supremacy share much in common.....
They are anti G-d, void of universal morality, not to mention racist, bigots and  hate anyone who is not them. 

I have no doubt that there are some decent individuals among the Black Lives Matter group.  They are not all Jew haters and Anti-semites. However problematic rhetoric in their camp should be condemned!

Black Lives Matters protesters are often affiliated with groups trying to undermine police.  They often play the victim's card of police aggression to the fullest thereby making law enforcement impotent.  Police then are unable to do their jobs properly to protect society from an unruly and dangerous riotous mob.  Peaceful protesters of both sides are then at risk.  Police are now often afraid that they will be accused of police brutality so they let potentially dangerous situations escalate. They fail to enforce security especially on those who will accuse them of  "police brutality"!  

On the other hand, police have been super vigilant against peaceful protesters against the  Klinghoffer Opera at the Met making sure that they are dutifully corralled in their protest sections. They have been super vigilant of Jews protesting the Iran Deal herding them in barricades. They have used their police presence to a fault to limit the  parade spectators on Fifth Ave at the Israel Day Parade with barricades galore sending spectators off to 6th Ave or Park Ave because it is impossible to walk down the sidewalks of 5th Avenue to get from street to street. Pro Israel parade participants and spectators are herded like sheep at intersections such as 72nd street and Fifth Avenue. (Surely the concentration of Jews at any intersection is in itself a security risk).  I get the feeling that their efforts are more to intimidate and show police presence then to actually protect the crowd.  There were long lines of security checks and metal detectors at the Israel Day Concert in the Park  entrance so that the crowds trickled in slowly patiently waiting to be frisked, metal detectors et all, and interrogated, coming late and missing parts of the amazing Pro Israel, Pro Judea and Samaria concert because of the intense security we all had to undergo....

Yet when Pamele Geller held a protest against Linda Sarsour, a pro Sharia, pro Jihad advocate, scheduled to speak at a Commencement exercise at CUNY, they allowed hostile protesters in very close proximity to Pamele Geller's podium, and in very close proximity to those in support of Pamele Geller, knowing fully well she and her supporters are a target.    Surely they were aware of the attempts on her life in the past! Police negligently allowed a flammable and volatile situation where passions ran high. Things could have easily become inflamed at a moments notice.  The Neturei Karta protesters were sent across the street with no issue.  They don't threaten the police. They respect Police.  

From my understanding the Police were prevented from doing their job because of political and legal intervention.  From the protest signs at Pamela Geller's protest against pro Jihad Linda Sarsour it was clear that those that advocated for Linda Sarsour, were  seasoned protesters against "police brutality". 

It makes sense for evil to team up with those who protest police activity.   This  works to weaken police activity against them, thereby protecting them while placing the public in grave danger.  It is the same strategy that NGO's use to discredit the IDF so that soldiers will be afraid to confront terrorists as they might be later accused and prosecuted for unwarranted aggression against innocent Palestinians.  Lawfare! 

When it comes to reigning in anarchists, any police activity to limit their activity could be seen as confrontational and a provocation. Police deal with violent anti police groups with kids gloves so as not to enrage them. However peaceful protesting Jews are not a threat to police so the police can be tough with them. 

It was the anti Trump media that lumped those out there to create anarchy and havoc with those who were peaceful protesters. The anti Trump media decided that the Right Neo Nazi's side was violent while the Left Antifa side was not. 

A Video of a Guy with a Trump hat and Israeli flag at "Free Speech Rally" in Boston proves the Antifa side can be quite hostile!

Since Trump is a candidate on the Right this condemnation now makes some sense.

Facts seem to indicate that in Charlottesville, both sides had those who were potentially violent as well as those who were protesting peacefullyNeither side was totally guiltless. Trump was right to note the distinction.  The key is to isolate and stop those who are potentially violent from both sides.  ....  Trump was in no way lessening his condemnation of  the Neo Nazi's and White Supremacists by pointing out that some on the Antifa side were also potentially violent.  Trump was saying.... don't lump everyone in the right wing group as Neo Nazis and everyone on the anti Neo Nazis group as peaceful. 

One can choose however to misinterpret his statement and to be critical  that Trump is being easy on the Nazis. 

The ones to blame in my opinion are those who gave a permit to the Neo Nazi's and White Supremacists to hold this rally.  I question the right of Neo Nazis to be given a platform in the first place in the name of Freedom of Speech!

For this you have to question liberals like Alan Dershowitz, the "experts" in the field, who protect Neo Nazi's rights of Freedom of Speech  and the rights of the Muslim Brotherhood operatives pushing  BDS rights deceptively under the guise of Freedom of Speech to brainwash clueless college kids and food coops while successfully suppressing everyone else's freedom of speech.

Does Donald Trump gain anything by supporting Neo Nazis and White Supremacists as many suggest?  

I don't believe there are so many neo Nazis and White Supremacists in this country that would have made any difference to Donald Trump's election campaign. He is not beholden to them even though that is what the leftists want you to believe. But what do I know? Surely giving them a platform and giving them a permit to speak seems stupid and empowers their hateful agenda.  Why isn't anyone bringing this point up?  If Donald Trump and his administration limits their rights to express their hate, by not allowing the issuing permits to them in the future, this will weaken them better than any condemnation! Will the Trump condemners then condemn him for violating the freedom of speech of Neo Nazi's and White Supremacists?

If you do not trust Trump, and in your heart believe he supports Nazis and white Supremacists or think he depends on them and needs their vote, then this bias against his very character will then be reason to assume that his delay in condemnation was because he was trying to protect the Neo Nazis and White Supremacists. You probably think that he condemned them only when he was pushed to the wall to do so. 

This Lashon Hara,  Slander, evil talk,  saying that he supports Neo Nazis and White Supremacists actually helps creates a situation that you are trying to prevent.  If one calls someone a robber when he is not but may have a weakness, it makes it very hard, almost impossible for the person to undo the perception and in fact may precipitate a very negative reaction as if to say....  If you think I am that bad, I'll prove to you how bad I can really be... 

Unless Trump is a true Nazi Sympathizer, which most agree he is not, it is unhelpful to call him one.  

Obama on the other hand,  in my opinion is a true Muslim Brotherhood supporter who empowered them, a pro nuclear Iran sympathizer who enabled them. Therefore it is important to continue to call him on it, undo his policies and not assume that he is irrelevant now that he is out of office.  

There are good reasons to believe he is operating a shadow gov't. 

Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation are corrupt to the core, accepting outrageous sums of monies bought off by evil regimes and agendas. Trump would be wise to investigate and prosecute them. Otherwise they will continue to infiltrate his ranks to undermine his administration.
To bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron.

Fwd: While the media wasn't looking...Mike Huckabee newsletter. New Book: Rogue Spooks The Intelligence War on Donald Trump By Dick Morris and Eileen McGann


In this book the authors advise President Trump to go on the offensive and call for a special investigation on those who are investigating him. Investigating the leaks will turn the tables on those investigating President Trump as they are the ones who should be investigated ...The Investigation should then go after the Clinton Foundation. 

Trump has no choice.  If he fails to prosecute them, they for sure will continue to do whatever it takes to undermine his Presidency. Lies and fabrications  and fake news is their modus operandis. 

Trump needs to make sure that those loyal to him are not fired nor retired as it alienates him and leaves him defenseless.

 I hope hTrump listens to their wise advice!  Please forward so that Trump knows that there are those who have his back and don't want him left to the clutches of those who are out to destroy him.  In return we hope he understands that Israel as well is surrounded by evil enemies out to destroy her.  The Palestinians are no peace partner.  Quite the opposite!  Their claims to the Land of Israel is also based on fake news! Trump should be very careful not to put Israel is a vulnerable position and pressure her into making any kind of concession as part of Peace deal. 

Israel is the Promised Land. It is the Holy Land.  Only Israel can actualize the potential for peace in the area and only by being Sovereign over Temple Mount and Judea and Samaria.  This is the Covenant G-d gave to the Nation of Israel.

Trump is surrounded by Jews and Evangelicals who are loyal to him.  Everyone else is suspect of not having his best interests in mind. Because Truth is the Bible. Those who nullify the Torah nullifies G-d's Will and this in turn will turn into great suffering and tragedy G-d forbid for the world. 

May G-d Bless Donald Trump as those who Bless Israel will be Blessed.

Various leftist commentators have been smearing Donald Trump as a supporter of white supremacists so loudly that they apparently didn't notice that last week, his ICE announced the biggest prosecution of white supremacist in history. Eighty-nine members of violent white supremacist gangs were convicted and received a total of more than 1,070 years in prison. The actions have virtually wiped out such gangs as the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas.

Interestingly, the convictions weren't for hate crimes, but mostly drug charges. In recent years, they've turned their attention from racial hatred to selling meth. I assume from the condition of their brains that they were also using their own product.

"Transitioning" gone wrong

By Mike Huckabee

Not long ago, I related Katharine Hepburn's childhood story --- that as a young girl, she decided she wanted to be a boy, to the extent that she cut off all her hair, wore boys' clothes and told everyone to call her "Jimmy." She grew out of it on her own. I speculated what might happen to such a girl today, in a time when some parents allow or even encourage the "transitioning" of their young children, who likely are just going through a phase or have other psychological problems or difficulties at home.

Well, here's a real-life example of how far wrong it can go: a girl who decided to get hormone injections –- and, later, even a mastectomy --and live as a boy but who later found God and realized her body was His temple and that she had been ruining it. She acknowledged that she really was created by God as a woman and now readily lives as one.



Glass houses

By Mike Huckabee

HEADLINE NEWS: "Prez Struck With Rock Thrown From Inside Glass House." From the Administration that took six years to admit the Fort Hood shooting was terrorism (but still not Islamic terrorism) instead of just "workplace violence," a swipe at Trump for taking 24 hours to label the killing in Charlotte "domestic terrorism." For the record, I called it that immediately, but then I also immediately realized that an Army major gunning down his comrades while yelling "Allahu Akbar" was terrorism, so I guess I must be a prodigy on this subject.


China is playing ball with us

By Mike Huckabee

China didn't block sanctions against North Korea at the UN, but they didn't say whether they'd abide by them. But on Monday, with Kim Jong-Un looking bound and determined to start World War III for no apparent reason, China announced that it will join in the sanctions. This after stating that if North Korea attacks the US and the US retaliates, Kim is on his own. Let's hope this sends Kim a clear message that if he doesn't pipe down and back down, the only nation that will be sending any hardware his way will be ours, and it won't be plumbing fixtures.



Options for Venezuela

By Mike Huckabee

There's now an entire industry built on wildly overreacting to everything President Trump says or does. One recent example: He was asked what he might do about the violence and late-stage socialist oppression in Venezuela. One of his stated principles is that, unlike the last President, he doesn't announce military plans in advance so that enemies can prepare for them. So Trump said a "possible military option" exists for dealing with Venezuela. Note that he didn't say we were sending in the Marines, just that it's a possible option. That's about as vague as you can get while sending Venezuela's government a message not to get too far out of line. But judging from the way it was reported, you'd think he was already massing troops in Aruba.

That left it up to Vice President Pence to make it clear that there are "many options for Venezuela," and the President is confident that a peaceful resolution will be reached by working with Latin American allies to restore democracy. Next, maybe we could find some options for restoring sanity to the American media. Both Venezuela and the US media prove that having an ill-founded faith in socialism inevitably leads to hysteria and chaos.

Fwd: Israel-Jordan peace agreement: The emperor has no clothes RIGHT ON

Israel-Jordan peace agreement: The emperor has no clothes

Israel sees Jordan as a security asset, because Jordan acts as an eastern buffer zone between the Jewish state and the violent chaos in Iraq, Syria and Iran. Israel is making a big mistake.

From Israel's prime minister down to the lowliest clerk, from the Commander in Chief down to the lowest ranking officer, from the Mossad down to the police by way of the Shabak – since 1994, everyone has been been chanting the same mantra about peace with Jordan. The prevalent reasoning is that peace with Jordan is Israel's most important strategic resource for the following reasons:

1.Security: The 500 kilometer border between Israel and Jordan is Israel's longest border with another country, reaching from Hamat Gader and the Yarmouk River in the north down to Eilat in the south. Jordan makes sure the border is quiet along its entire length and prevents hostile forces from approaching it and continuing west into Israel. If not for the peace declared between the two states, Israel would have to keep large forces along the border to guard it from infiltration.

Israel sees the very existence of Jordan to its east as a security asset in itself, because Jordan acts as a buffer zone between the Jewish state and the violent chaos in Iraq, Syria and Iran.

There is full cooperation between the Jordanian and Israeli armies, including visits by officers, the handing over of information, and coordinated activity along the border, under the assumption that radical groups are a shared enemy. In exchange for this, it is said, Israel played a part in guarding Jordan's northern and eastern borders during the years 2014-16, the period when ISIS posed a threat to Jordan.

2. Jordan is the second Arab nation to have signed a peace treaty with Israel, proving that Israel can find itself accepted in the Middle East as a sustainable country with whom former enemies can make peace by rethinking their previous positions. This could occur despite the August 1967 Khartoum Arab summit where it was declared that the Arab nations would not recognize Israel, would not negotiate with Israel and would not make peace with it. King Hussein of Jordan was a party to these decisions but carried on negotiations with Israel, recognized it and signed a peace treaty, as did Egypt before him. The obvious conclusion is that any Arab nation can do the same, making peace with Jordan a significant accomplishment,

3. There is a wide array of cooperative ties between Israel and Jordan, mostly in the economic sphere.  Three issues are involved: a. Israel has a multi-billion dollar contract with Jordan according to which it sells gas extracted from Israel's Mediterranean gas fields to Jordan's electricity company; b. Israel recognized "Qualified Industrial Zones" in which Israeli funds are invested, Jordanians are employed and Americans are the buyers, providing employment for thousands of Jordanian families; c. cooperative ventures such as the Water Canal, tourism, flights, trade and academia – thousands of Israeli Arab students attend Jordanian Universities and their degrees are recognized in Israel.

In exchange for recognition, Israel granted the Hashemite Kingdom, and especially its king, special status in the Jerusalem sites considered holy by Islam, mainly the al Aqsa Mosque, giving Hussein and his son Abdullah today, a significant stamp of approval in the Islamic world. This stamp of approval is especially important in granting much-needed legitimacy to the Hashemite Kingdom. The Palestinian majority and even some Bedouin groups question that legitimacy, since the Hashemites are not originally Jordanian, having come from the western section of the Arabian Peninsula, Hijaz, where the two Islamic holy cities of Mecca and Medina are located.

The British gave the Transjordan Emirate to Abdullah I, great grandfather of today's Abdullah. He is considered a foreign transplant, giving rise to questions of legitimate rule, and the special status at al Aqsa is intended to give him a shot of legitimacy, stabilizing his regime. The king pays the salaries of hundreds of Jerusalem Waqf officials.

Another payment Israel took upon itself is the handing over of 50 million cubic meters of drinkable water to Jordan every year. The plan was to bring this water from the Sea of Galilee, but the drought of the last few years has lowered the level of the water in the lake, so Israel has substituted expensive desalinated water instead.  Jordanian agriculture in the Jordan Valley is made possible in part because of this Israeli water.

All the points raised here give Israel the feeling that the peace agreement with Jordan is successful, certainly more successful than the one with Egypt, with whom there is much less cooperation on non-security related issues. Israel's payment for this by handing over water and securing Jordan's status in Jerusalem is one Israel can handle in exchange for the premise that peace  with Jordan serves Israeli interests. All the parties to Israel's government are united in supporting the maintenance of peace with Jordan at all costs.

Where did we go wrong?

The first and main point is that Israel ignores the fact that the peace agreement is totally dependent on the continuation of the illegitimate Hashemite dynasty. In 1994 that meant Hussein, today it is Abdullah II, but the future is unclear, because there are quite a few people in Jordan and outside it who see Abdullah as the last Hashemite monarch. What comes next? There are several possible answers to that query, ranging from a military junta made up of local Bedouin ruling the various populations, on to a civil war that leads to the country splitting in two, with a Palestinian state rising in the northwestern part of the country where there is a Palestinian Arab majority.

It is no secret that the Palestinian majority in Jordan is opposed to the peace treaty with Israel.  One reason is the recognition a treaty grants Israel and another is the fact that it does not include the so-called "right of return" of the 1948 refugees to within Israeli borders, including compensation for the possessions they left behind them and the years of suffering they underwent in refugee camps.

The Palestinian majority in Jordan feels no commitment to the peace agreement; it was signed by King Hussein, not by them. For this reason, most of the professional associations in Jordan – lawyers, journalists, doctors and others – do not allow their members to partner with Israelis. Most of their members are Palestinian Arabs who see the peace agreement as the result of the king's betrayal of their cause.

The peace agreement upon which Israel and Jordan are signed and everything Israel has paid, is paying and is willing to pay to preserve and guard that peace will be utterly worthless the day a rebellion breaks out against the king, or some assassin or  suicide bomber, G-d forbid, succeeds in killing him. The house of cards Israel built around him will collapse instantaneously, the peace agreement and any others signed in its wake will become fond memories. Whoever takes the king's place will restart the process and expect Israel to pay even more than it had originally paid – that is, if the country remains united. If that new leader is a Palestinian Arab, the price will entail the return of a significant number of 1948 refugees to the state of Israel, not to the Palestinian State that may exist by then.

The king knows full well that the possibility that he could be assassinated by a Palestinian Arab, as his great grandfather was in 1951 in Jerusalem, is not farfetched. That is the reason his armed bodyguards are not Arabs, but members of  the Circassian ethnic minority who stem from the Caucasian Mountain region and do not have their eyes on the throne, meaning that they are not suspected of planning to murder the king or poison his food. The king's mistrust of the Palestinian Arabs, who make up the majority of his subjects, has led him to keep them out of the armed forces, police, foreign ministry and especially from internal security organizations and intelligence.

There are several Palestinian Arabs in the government and parliament who serve as token representatives, but the majority of them know exactly what the Hashemites think of the majority of Jordan's citizenry, those who define themselves as Palestinians – never calling themselves Jordanians because that is used for Bedouin, viewed as lower class by the Palestinians, who are farmers and city dwellers.

The Palestinian Arabs in Jordan are the economic engine of the country. They make up most of the merchants, manufacturers, businessmen, lawyers, accountants, academics, journalists, arts and media personalities, and they generally avoid contact with Israel and Israelis. They conduct a consistent and strict boycott of Israel. The king respects their position for two reasons: One, he has no way to force the peace agreement upon them, and two, he is quite content to show Israel that the peace agreement is not secure because of Palestinian opposition, allowing him to demand more and more from Israel in order to guard its interests and keep the king in power.

The cost of the peace agreement to Israel is prohibitive. First, Israel respects the status it granted the kingdom in Jerusalem, even though there is no precedent in  the entire world for a sovereign state granting another country special rights in its capital city on that state's most holy site. In 1994, when this was decided during the peace talks, Israel wasn't worried about Hussein who hated Arafat and agreed with Israel that there must never be a Palestinian state. The status Israel granted him on the Temple Mount was in order to prevent Arafat and the Islamic Movement from taking over the site.

King Abdullah II has  turned Jordanian policy around and is an ardent supporter of the establishment of a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria., one that will be able to look over at Israel and threaten it with missiles and short range mortars that hit from Dimona and Beer Sheva in the south, up along the coastal plain from Ashkelon, the Ashdod port, greater Tel Aviv, Ben Gurion airport, to Haifa and its port and all the way to Afula and  Beit She'an. Long range weapons will threaten all the rest of Israel. Abdullah is actively creating a strategic threat to the state of Israel that will most probably be ruled by Hamas, which won most of the seats in the Palestinian legislature in 2006 and led a violent takeover of Gaza in 2007. Abdullah would like to see these scenarios repeat themselves, a most realistic possibility.

King Abdullah displayed his hostility towards Israel overty in two recent events. This past March he freed the Jordanian soldier who, in cold blood, murdered seven school girls from Beit Shemesh in 1997 as they took part in a class trip to the "Peace Island" (!!!) in Naharayim. His father, King Hussein, came to pay a condolence visit to the families in Beit Shemesh, while his son let the murderer go free. What price did he pay for this slap in the face to  Israel? Zilch. Nothing.

Jordan acts against  Israel as a matter of course in international circles, especially UNESCO and the UN Human Rights Council, two places that constantly attempt to delegitimize Israel. Jordan encourages and pushes for the decisions that deny Jewish tradition in Jerusalem, undermining the historical and religious foundations for the existence of the Jewish State. This is meant  to spread the feeling in the world that Israel's establishment is a result of British colonialism, one that must be cancelled so that "Falestin" is restored to its "historical owners" – the Palestinians. Abdullah, like the Palestinian Arabs, thinks that if he succeeds in removing Jerusalem from the State of Israel, the resulting demoralization will send the Jews packing.

Establishing a Palestinian Arab state that will threaten Israel's security and destroy the Jewish state, is the strategic objective of King Abdullah, because it will prevent a Palestinian State from arising in Jordan. If a Palestinian state is created in the hills of Judea and Samaria, the king intends to get rid of all the Palestinian refugees who entered Jordan in the 1948 war, about one and a half million people, plus several hundred thousand who entered Jordan over the last seventy years. Demographic pressure in the Palestinian state will become terrorist pressure that turns life in Israel into  Hell  - exactly what Abdullah wants.

He coordinates his activities with Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas, seeing eye to eye with them on the main goal – destroying Israel in order to save the Hashemite Kingdom from becoming a nation of Palestinians.

We would do well to  remember what most of us have long forgotten: The clueless group of irresponsible Israeli politicians who gave Jordan its unconditional and unlimited special status in Jerusalem is the same group whose idiotic policies brought terrorist Arafat back from the garbage bin of politicians in Tunisia and granted him the closest thing to a state, The stars of this stellar group included Shimon Peres, Yossi Beilin and Alon Liel,who dragged Yitzchak Rabin into the most dangerous poitical trap, endangering the continued existence of the State of Israel.

Jordan today, it must be concluded, is working non-stop behind the cover of its peace treaty with Israel to destroy the Jewish State and create a Palestinian one instead. What is worse is that Israel refuses to admit to the situation and continues most carefully to keep the agreement, hoping calm will prevail along the border until the next elections. Every politician knows that if, during his term, relations with Jordan deteriorate, the media – our shallow, slanted and agenda-ridden media – will accuse him of being the cause of the agreement's nullification, making him pay the  price in the next round of elections. That is why politicians bolster up the temporary tactical quiet, ignoring the strategic threat to the very existence of the state posed by the peace agreement.

If Israel's leaders felt endangered by the actions of Abdullah, they would do something to prevent his destructive activities, cleverly disguised as military and economic cooperation.  The problem is that in their view, short term tactical advantages are preferable to attending to strategic problems that affect the long term. We are all going  to pay a high price for this way of running things on the part of Israel's decision makers – as can be seen by the security equipment crisis last month in Jerusalem.

King Hussein was all for Israel's continued existence and did not question Jerusalem 's status. That's why peace with him was positive in general. His son Abdullah changed his father's strategy and works tirelessly to create a Palestinian state on the ruins of the destroyed Jewish one. Now that King Abdullah's nefarious scheme has been revealed, Israel must rethink its Jordanian route and work to create a Palestinian Arab state in all or part of Jordan, since the majority of the people there are Palestinian Arabs.

The alternative is establishing a Palestinian state on Israeli territory with its capital in Eastern Jerusalem, a strategic danger to Israel. 

There is no reason that the Jewish people, who returned to its land after 2000 years of exile, should  pay with its very existence for the survival of the Hashemites brought by the British from Hijaz to rule the most artificial country in the world – Jordan
