Israel is under attack from Hamas. But at least Israel has guns to defend itself. The sooner Israel defeats it's enemies foreign and domestic, the sooner Jews worldwide will find acceptance. This happened in 1967, in the aftermath of a reunified Jerusalem. By the grace of God, it will happen again. But what about until then?
Two years ago I created another group on Facebook. This group specifically targets obfuscated Anti Semitism that is conveyed via Anti Zionism and Anti Israelism.
As the violence against Jews has both escalated and spilled out beyond Israel's borders and IDF influence, it is important to be connected to an information source that may share vital data on which areas worldwide are currently hosting a dangerous incident and give you the information you or someone you know may desperately need.

I'm for respecting American law. The final results of the election are scheduled to come in December. In a contested election such as this, it is like choosing sides to proclaim a winner early, and that is not diplomacy for non Americans, nor unity for Americans. There is a danger if the focus is only on winning, and not on achieving a better unified nation on the morrow.
It is understandable for Biden himself to claim it. It is irresponsible for any journalist to. It challenges the pursuit of due process in American law. Dear God, why are so many doing it? They are becoming for America a worse threat than their depiction of Trump. Look at actual policies, not just speech patterns. What an ordeal this is! This runaway slander and libel needs to have limit. Like shouting fire in a crowded theater, the media has been electioneering for 4 years against Mr. Trump, not reporting facts.
At the possible departure of a historic friend of the State of Israel, I urge greater patience than some may be feeling, or showing. If Trump leaves office, whenever that may be, let it be with dignity, as he has shown the State of Israel.
We should respect the final results, however they may be, and treat the winner with respect we would want for our own candidate, whether or not the winner is the one we may prefer.
May God bless President Trump, and may the true winner of the election soon be revealed so that the nation may unite behind the results. Let our stance further justice and foster unity, not the very opposite.
We should respect the winner of the election, whoever he may be. But the fairness of the voting tally must be shown, in order for the country to unite behind him.
The allegations of voting fraud are multifarious and many of them are extremely compelling. No cynicism at the charges of fraud, please! Silence critics with evidence, not more allegations. Law leads to order. Lawlessness leads to anarchy.
Let the charges be proven true or false. The losing side must know the veracity of the ultimate results.
That is the only peaceful way to end this. I taught Political Science and American History at the collegiate level, and I’m not exaggerating.
God bless America. And win or lose, may God bless Donald J. Trump as well. May the best possible results be revealed, and may it soon be so, by the grace of God.

We can easily recognize the Zionist and Democratic elements in Israel's government today, but we still have politicians insulting people who are merely trying to be religious in the Holy Land. We can't just demand Arabs acknowledge us as Jewish, and then turn around and attempt to deny Jewish expressionism within the Holy Land, the center stage for said religiosity. In support of enhancing religious freedom in Israel, I endorse the Eretz HaKadosh platform for the World Zionist Organization (WZO) elections, January 21 through March 11, 2020. This is the current weak link in the goals of the organization in relation to Knesset activity, which are supposed to include: "Strengthening Israel as a Jewish, Zionist and democratic state and shaping it as an exemplary society with a unique moral and spiritual character, marked by mutual respect for the multi-faceted Jewish people, rooted in the vision of the prophets, striving for peace and contributing to the betterment of the world." In addition, due to the Talmudic concept of Kol Yisrael Areivim Zeh BaZeh (All Jews are guarantors for one another,) there is no doubt effort to combat Global Antisemitism will be redoubled, even more so, as a religious duty, should Eretz HaKadosh gain greater influence.

New elections set for September. The electorate at least knows what to expect from those claiming to be right minded political parties. This can all be for the best.
Avigdor Lieberman said, "there must be a government that reflects the interests of the entire public."
My question is... Does he feel Chareidim have interests that need reflecting too? They got 10 more seats than him and he feels he can dictate all terms.
Shas chairman and Interior Minister Aryeh Deri confirmed Bibi's version of the story.
"Netanyahu poured out his heart after the elections. He was very hurt and told me that he could not form a government because he knew that Liberman was determined not to let him establish it," he added.
Whereas Agudath Yisrael had previously agreed to Netanyahu's suggested compromise on the draft issue, but Leiberman rejected that as well.
Lieberman essentially made an impossible demand and then cried out, "Look, the Chareidim and Bibi said no!!" He implied that Likud member(s) did not keep previous agreements that were made behind the scenes. Yet publicly he is presenting a person that does not seem to even care about the opinions of those who do not agree with him. If he is as correct, as he feels that he is, he has certainly not presented a sufficient case for his stance. We are left with only his obstructionism as his way of explanation.
Is this still about what's best for Israel, Avigdor? All that taxpayer wealth down the drain for arguing about something you knew would happen anyway. Well, at this point it seems, if he is not going to be a part of any Likud government, then things are improving already.
"Good sense will grant favor, but the way of the treacherous is harsh. Every cunning person acts with forethought, but a fool exposes stupidity. " (Proverbs 13:15,16)
Dear political leaders. There are enough politicians in the world that try to wield power to get their way. Let's be diplomats out there. May it soon be so, by the grace of God.

How can one make a treaty work with the Palestinian Authority? Assuming you mean a treaty fairly minded and negotiated, then in short, you can't. This is why they are not bothering to risk sitting down with the Trump Administration. They can't handle the concept of an honestly brokered deal and that is the kind of deal President Trump is offering. The PA depended on undue pressure on Israel before each meeting with them. That is no longer there. But if the PA were to change, and they somehow do take up President Trump's offer, then here is a suggestion on how to take on such an opportunity to make it as successful as possible.
The Palestinian Authority, in PLO fashion, historically wanted things stacked against Israel before they would come to the table. Arafat's strategy of peace negotiations in between periods of rearmament has continued to be PA/Hamas strategy. A war with words while they clandestinely continued to gather bullets behind the scenes. Ever champing at the bit to conquer rather than seek actual peace for both sides.
In the past I have demanded justice against, not negotiation with the Palestinian Authority. As my philosophy ranks Palestinian Arabs as a valuable asset to Israel, I called instead for regional leaders among them to be replacement leaders for negotiations. I rejected calls to oust them from the country. Had I been asked before Israel or the Trump Administration were to begin the new talks I would have suggested getting this done before the workshop. Cleaning the table before you serve the meal.
Nevertheless, even within current realities, it's not too late to deal with the obstinacy of the PLO run PA when setting up a negotiation session. Adding non terrorist leadership candidates to the Palestinian Authority negotiation team would allow continuity in the subsequent talks with the PA even if current PA leadership force a breakdown in negotiations, as expected. If successful, these politicians among the Palestinian Arabs can become future leaders. It is for this very reason, that the current leadership will not allow it if they have a choice. No Palestinian Authority leadership elections since forever makes this supposition of mine just common sense. Nevertheless, if peacemaking is the goal, this idea of adding fresh leaders to the PA can be a stipulation made, as a prerequisite for the next step.
It is possible that this is in the back of the mind of the Trump Administration. That the reason for inviting so many Arab business men to the Bahrain Economic Workshop, is perhaps to find non-belligerent people to talk to. At the least there is a potential that there may be developed a pool of more vocal pro peace with Israel advocates throughout the Arab world.
In the past, Arab League unity for peace were effectively not much different than tactics according to Arafat strategies of conquest. If the Trump administration can at least find people who are willing to go on record for actual peace that does not risk Israel, then something positive has a distinct possibility to occur.
As for Israel, even if Netanyahu remains PM, policy of toleration of PA violence must cease. How many generations of violence is expected be required according to the current plan of Netanyahu, and certainly of those to his left, before Israel will have a partner in peace? Wait it out is the best they are offering. But if rather Israel would filter out terrorists from the Palestinian Arabic leadership, then true partners in peace could be found. Real peace could then be obtainable as soon as this year.

Today marks the ten year anniversary of the composition of the mechanics of the Everyone Wins Peace Plan. To ease research on this wonderful plan, I am including an index of the key blog posts that deal with the plan and key factors that led to it all in this one post. Please feel free to join with me in the great work of attempting to bring peace to the world. Please research the plan, and then when you feel comfortable contact the members of parliament that you deem appropriate. You can e-mail me any questions that you feel urgent. firstname.lastname@example.org
But as always it cannot hurt to emphasize, that this is a plan that HaShem/God gave to the world, through this writer; I freely admit. As this plan fits Torah ideals for peace, under the circumstances in our time, and does so, more than any other peace plan that is known, it seems to me that it is factual to say that this is more God's plan than my own.
But as I seem to be the interface for explaining it, I must continue to remain open to communication for those who would know more about applying it in practice. I would rather hide under a rock than try to take credit for that which God has done, but what can I do under the circumstance? It is the nature of the times and this mode of communication that self-promotion is required just to present a dialog. If it turns out that this is the path the world peace, how can I withhold it for even an instant from God's creations? The Lord's command of not remaining idly by the blood of one's fellow forbids that.

There is a difference between making peace in this situation in the Holy Land, and in other conflicts. In this situation, innocent are mixed in with the severely guilty. Making peace with a criminal instead of punishing their criminality is in contradiction with the most basic principles of criminal justice. The innocent should be saved, the heinous criminal must face corrections. There is also the third part of the population that neither wants the terrorist rule of the Palestinian Authority nor to ever join with Israel in a One State solution that will maximize prosperity for everyone within it. Therefore we need to discuss how to deal with each of these elements of the overall Arabic peoples in the territories, with individualized policy toward each population segment.
True One-State solutions should not allow potential pockets of armed resistance that each time a police action is called for, would risk a potential hasbara nightmare every time. The IDF needs full access to police the land, without risk of potential international conflict at each and every turn. But innocent Arabs should not be expelled and should be given an option to naturalize slowly, filtering naturalization applicants as one would credit card applicants to elevate those Arabs with the greatest lack of terroristic tendencies to be absorbed first. But exile is only for those not champing at the bit to kill again. Those who would kill again must be taken out of the equation. They should be in jail or not in this world, and not being sent to exile immediately into the ranks of an enemy army. Changing from being a card-carrying member of Hamas to one of Hezbollah does nothing for regional stability.
Terrorists are not from a city that we are attacking and whom should be given a chance to flee, (as per Maimonides, Laws of Kings, Chapter 6.) Terrorists are enemies that have blood on their hands. They have tasted blood, and they desire to frenzy on that blood again. Exile is also not for good people who could contribute to Israel and they should be valued by our nation. Exile is only for those who are unhealthy for society but not with a track record of trying to commit bloodshed. In each category, the solution, if done in this way is a conclusive solution, in each of these 3 categories (of the Innocent, of Significant-Risk, and of Terrorists), and that is the path to true peace; a peace that is unlikely to be broken. Also by giving no hope of freedom to terrorists, it creates a penal aspect that is vital to prevent future recidivism among them and to discourage it toward future generations of Arabs otherwise potentially likely to become like them, Heaven forefend.
Therefore there must be a peace that allows the good people to escape terrorist rule, the bad people to not escape justice, and to those who are in between, the right to go into exile if they refuse to choose peace. It is their choice that is forcing them from their homes, but at least we can free them from being under the rule of terrorists. The terrorists are willing to toss people off of rooves to plunge to their deaths and are thus too cruel even to their own people to be allowed to rule if we have anything to say in it. As stated previously, Israel, even today, has the legal responsibility under international law, for all the territories, even Gaza, and so we must make this important choice for the betterment of all good people West of the River Jordan.
As we stated previously, the beginning of peace does not come by the placation of terror; that is its anathema. At its end, there must neither be the destruction of innocent societies. You can't make peace with terrorists, but you can with people.
By understanding that there is a difference between regular people and terrorists, then we can say the following: The key is in not living in the moment of the criminal's perspective but in the objective needs of good public policy for the vast majority of the people, every single innocent citizen. That a person not be judged based on race but only whether they wish to join in civilization building. Civilization builders cannot coexist with terrorists.
This terrorist filter is a key difference between my Everyone Wins peace plan and all the other one state solutions. All good and innocent can and will be saved therein. Therefore may the Everyone Wins peace plan become the Peace Policy of the State of Israel, and may it soon be so, by the grace of God.

Is the status quo tolerable? In the 1990's Israel's government had such an urge to remove the status quo that they hit the panic button and ran with a plan (Oslo Accords) that was not fully thought through and had no end game calculated. They wanted peace but did not think the methodology through. The result was much suffering and bloodshed. To prevent another tragic mistake like that, Israelis must select a path that could be followed the next time a government considers a peace plan. Therefore now, while calm and collected thoughts are possible, is the time to choose the most ideal peace plan possible, to have in place already before it is absolutely needed. This could be the difference in preventing another Oslo-like disastrous decision.
As most Israelis believe that the Torah is a true document, whether or not the majority is observant, the point is that they believe that God is real, and the Torah represents Divine Knowledge granted to all generations of humanity. That being the case, as we mentioned previously, it is important to treat prophecy as the best kind of intel available. As we also mentioned previously, the prophecy of Ezekiel foretells that the land immediately to the North and South of Jerusalem will be in the territory of the Israel of the future. Therefore no peace plan that tries to give up Judea and Samaria can work long term.
The point of peace is to prevent war, not guarantee it. If it is a matter of preordained destiny that Israel own Judea and Samaria, then trying to give those territories away only guarantees further bloodshed. If someone gave up Judea and Samaria they would be falling into a trap that will as a matter of destiny, lead to war. Therefore no peace plan that tries to give up Judea and Samaria can achieve lasting peace. Therefore we must disqualify all peace plans that try to.
All the widely known plans that have been offered up by Labor, Kadima and even Likud go against the grain of Israel's destiny. All the plans of these parties, have unwittingly lead into cascading paths to bloodshed. We can't keep hitting the same wall and then complain about a lack of progress.
Only 3 widely-known plans have a clear path that avoids the pitfall we have discussed. Rabbi Elon's Jordan is Palestine, Caroline Glick's One Israel Solution, and my Everyone Wins Peace Plan.
Jordan is Palestine clears the territories the most efficiently but is extremely unlikely to be implemented. Jordan already feels overwhelmed by their population and would not likely accept millions more without a massive aid package (bribe) that no nation or group of nations in the West are likely to offer. Therefore Jordan Is Palestine is not an option.
The Glick plan does not fix the problem in Gaza, and it does not filter the applicants for immigration and naturalization other than to select a large number of them to be non-citizen residents of Israel, which reduces the effectiveness of the plan. Apparently, she wants to give the Arabs more freedom of choice, but in this situation, the choice to not join with Israel is potentially a foot in the door for jihad down the road, we need them to join us or leave. A middle option should not be an option unless the logistics of a long naturalization process demand it, and in such a circumstance it would be a temporary classification, not a platform for any political statements by non-citizens. By denying a right to vote long term, you create a potential hasbara concern long term.
Whereas the Torah only separates between religious duties, such as in the national Temple, but for tort law, unity and fair play are encouraged. "There shall be one law for the native and for the stranger who resides in your midst." (Exodus 12:49) The term, Resident, in the Torah refers to good gentiles, not second-class citizens, "If your brother becomes destitute and his hand falters beside you, you shall support him (whether) a convert or a resident so that he can live with you." (Leviticus 25:35)
Nevertheless, the Glick plan does give full Israeli authority to lands in Judea and Samaria. If there were no other plans that do not attempt to fail by giving up Judea and Samaria, then this would the plan to support. Though, if between the Glick plan and Jordan is Palestine, Jordan is Palestine does offer much greater security than does the Glick plan assuming a bribe-Jordan plan is worked out in the backrooms of the EU and the Arab League. One Israel Solution allows the Gaza nightmare to continue, Jordan is Palestine does not. Yet Jordan is Palestine is not very likely to be viable.
Fortunately, there is the Everyone Wins Peace Plan. Unilateral, so no other nation need be coaxed or bribed, and it is strong against terror, demanding a filter on all applicants for naturalization. It also ends the Gaza nightmare. Arabs can choose to keep their homes and share in the prosperity of the Israel of tomorrow, or go into exile or jail with those who worship terrorism.
Terrorists who are willing to kill their own children for military gains are comparable with the child sacrificing Molech worshipers, and Scripture commands regarding such people, "You shall not form a covenant for them or for their gods." (Exodus 23:32) They cannot separate from their ideology, and therefore they cannot be given land which instantly is considered by them a staging ground for further bloodshed. They only need lie that they want peace, and their jihad is advanced by the stroke of a pen. This undermines a key brick in the foundations of International Law, the reliability of treaties.
Those sincere Arabs that choose to stay are offered full citizenship when the adjustment period ends. This naturalization process is slow enough to not change the voting ratio in the State of Israel, but sure enough that it ends doubt of which direction Israel is going in.
Everyone Wins allows people of all backgrounds to be equal with only one caveat, they have to want to build civilization, not destroy it. Everyone Wins removes the false impression of any continued segregation in any territory under Israel's control based on race, and only punishes the guilty. Only a choice for jihad could keep an Arab from becoming an Israeli sooner or later. The choice is theirs. But security, even over Gaza, begins from day one of the plan. May it soon be so, by the grace of God.

How does the Everyone Wins Peace Plan differ from all others? It is based on the philosophy of Abraham, the forefather of Jews and Arabs. By trusting the love of a father, we can find a way to peace between the children. Abraham said, "Let Ishmael live before You." (Genesis 17:18) But it was recorded in the holy Torah to not only record a conversation with God but to teach a lesson to us as well. We should consider the facts of the matter without agonies of the past overwhelming our judgment. In short, that we cannot abandon the Arabs in the territories to terrorists that we armed in a failed peace attempt two decades ago. Also, if they would desire to join our nation, we would be better off for it. Nonterroristic Arabs are an asset to a lawful society, not a curse. Therefore we need to filter out terrorists from the good Arabs and then save as many precious roses from among the thornbush as we can.
If using a Torah perspective, it is assumed that the Jews have a right to their own land. If trusting that the Scripture has the most accurate intel possible, then any peace plan must take into account that the Jews are destined to have contiguous borders emanating directly to the North and South from Jerusalem. (Ezekiel, chapter 48) That means any peace plan would be doomed to fail if it did not end with Israel having full control of Judea and Samaria (the West Bank.) As we mentioned before, there is another plan that gives full Israeli control without leaving a belligerent Arab militia in the way, this is Rabbi Elon's plan, i.e. Jordan is Palestine. From this aspect of Scripture-as-intel, either of these two plans could work.
But from the Abrahamic perspective, only Everyone Wins should be implemented. Even if somehow the Kingdom of Jordan agreed to overwhelm their population further and said Jordan is Palestine is agreeable to them, from our forefather's perspective, it would seem unacceptable, at least to my reading. The Abrahamic clause of 'Let Ishmael Live', would be met, but 'Before You', would not be met.
Further, the political problems after implementation are deep. First, it depends on the Kingdom of Jordan to not only allow it to occur, but next Jordan would need to build affordable housing and provide jobs fast enough to prevent massive discontent from everyone who just lost the societies that they held dear and do this for millions of people. It could take a great amount of money from the Western nations and Arab League to implement such a plan and remove the probability of failure; so it would burden many nations as well. They were gung-ho for the Oslo Accords, would they be for Jordan is Palestine as well? The potential to destabilize our most stable neighbor is not a sign of being on the direction toward World Peace.
At the time it was invented, Jordan is Palestine was the closest to the true Torah method to peace, allowing for the future prophecies to occur without further war, so I don't fault Rabbi Elon or his followers. That plan led to Everyone Wins. A natural consequence of trying to do things the Torah way leads to the question, how can we do it best.
In recent years some leaders in Israel have spoken of annexing Judea and Samaria but leaving all Arabs including terrorists in the heartlands. Those plans that would follow Oslo Accord relics like Areas A, B and C would be worse than full annexation plans like the Glick plan. Just in case one would think that a plan like the Glick plan is closer to the Torah than Rabbi Elon's plan, allow me to point out the following. While this would end the hasbara nightmare in the Eastern territories, but continue the potential for it in Gaza, it would also leave machine guns in the hands of those sympathetic to terrorists. It would establish the current risk to Israeli citizens as the norm for yet another generation only with the IDF in control, it would be a less violent direction for the nation to go in, but not a full resolution of danger, as Jordan is Palestine or Everyone Wins would provide.
Plans like the Glick plan would technically add the territory of Ezekiel's prophecy but seem unlikely to enable a smooth and non-violent transition ushering in a period of World peace which is prophesied to come. Whereas Oslo-remnant preserving plans like Likud currently supports, are doomed to fail from a Torah perspective and would enable launching pads for civil unrest in the heartlands, to be decided by the whim and fiat of unrepentant terrorists, as Israel already knows too well. Israel smuggled in arms in the 1940's, a terror army would always be trying to imitate the same even if their guns alone were confiscated. They need to be dealt with conclusively. Let's wisely implement just and humane policy, not only one or only the other and not without the inspiration of Torah values.
Everyone Wins has the best of all types of peace plans, without the negatives of any. It is an annexation plan that filters out terrorists and allows as many good people as possible to keep their homes and societies. It is also a plan that enables unilateral action so it can be implemented without delay or preapproval. It does not discriminate against race but only whether a person wants to be a builder of civilization or not. At a time when the Americans are open to a One State solution, it is extremely viable.
God told Abraham, that the land would belong to his descendants. God repeated that vow to Isaac, Jacob, Moses, and Joshua. But it began with Abraham. How Abraham views these matters must be taken into consideration. If God wanted us to only think of what is best for our people, He could have begun His pledge by speaking to Jacob, but instead, He spoke to Isaac and Abraham before him, perhaps this was so that we would consider the needs of our cousins as well when we made peace.
Isaac sent Edom to Seir, to become Israel's neighbor, but Abraham said Let Ishmael live before you. Isaac and Abraham were both prophets, with each the best possible advice was given. Edom in the time of Joshua would become neighbors to Israel, and Ishmael in our time would join with us to make this state into a greater nation.
The Hebrew word for "let" in this verse allows for an alternate translation. The simple meaning is as a stated wish, but it can also be translated, "if only." A conditional wish.
"If only My people would hearken to Me if Israel would go in My ways. In a short time I would subdue their enemies and upon their enemies, I would return My hand." (Psalm 81: 14-15)
If only Ishmael is good, then we can save him and bring him into our land to dwell with us.
We learn from the holy Torah's discussion of laws of charity, to treat good gentiles similar to one's brother, "If your brother becomes destitute and his hand falters beside you, you shall support him (whether) a convert or a resident, so that he can live with you." (Leviticus 25:35) The commentary of Rashi states, "a convert or a resident: Even if he is a convert (גֵּר) ger or a “resident (תוֹשָׁב) toshav.” And what is a “resident”? Any (gentile) who has accepted upon himself not to worship idols, even though he eats (non-kosher) carrion."
Therefore I say we should show charity to Yishmael, so that he may live with us as our father Avraham intended. The only proviso, he does not bow to the idolatry of violence and terror.
Ishmael can only be welcomed if he is as a spiritual brother, i.e. not abusive and violent. Therefore the gentle and innocent among him must be collected to remain, and those dedicated to anarchy and terror must be excluded from society, rejected from the land, or otherwise brought to justice for their bloodshed. If Ishmael is a terrorist he has to go. If Ishmael is humble and gracious, then the truth is revealed; we are as brethren. Our mutual forefather Abraham had a wish even as he was told of great tidings regarding Isaac, that we should allow Ishmael to live before us. We are family and that is what family should do.
Everyone Wins remains the best way to attempt to bring peace in a way that respects not only the intel of the Torah but as we have written here, it is the only peace plan on the table that contains the precise nuanced philosophy of it as well. Therefore may it be accepted as the one path to peace in Israel. May it soon be so, by the grace of God.
