If We Help Save Tiny Israel, Perhaps We'll Learn To Love And Save Ourselves?

James Doogue

Arabs want to wipe out the Jews from the River to the Sea. They've already eliminated them from almost everywhere else in The Middle East, now they want to rid Jews from Israel, their ancestral homeland.

How can the Western media and university students and others be so gullible?

Israel is the only country in The Middle East which:

- Is a true democracy.

- Gives all citizens equal rights regardless of gender, sexuality or religion.

- Is a designated Jewish state but allows freedom of religion for all citizens.

- Has compulsory military service. Males do 3 years on completion of high school. Females do 2 years. Arab Israelis are not compelled to do this service, but are welcome to do so if desired and many Aran Israelis hold high ranks in the IDF. The same applies to Druze Israelis and ultra-orthodox religious Jews.
- Has positive discrimination in university education and public service roles setting quotas to assist and encourage Arab Israelis to succeed in Israeli society.

- Provides free education and health care for all citizens and even provides government funding for private Arab only schools which meet minimum curriculum standards.

- Has sovereignty over the Temple Mount in Old Jerusalem. This is the holiest site in the world for Jews, the site of King Solomon's Temple and the second Jewish temple built under King Herod. It is also the site of the Muslim Al-Aqsa Mosque compound including the Dome of the Rock built hundreds of years after the Jewish temples. This site is considered Muslims third most holy site after The Kaaba in Mecca and the al-Masjid an-Nabawi (The Prophet's Mosque). As part of Israel's 1994 peace deal with Jordan the Temple mount is administered by the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf, a department of the Jordanian Government. While Israel is responsible for security and enforcing the rules, the rules overwhelmingly favour Muslims.

For instance there are nine entrances to the site, where Muslims can come and go at eight of the entrances, the remaining single entrance is for non-Muslims.

Non-Muslims can only visit the Temple Mount for four hours per day five days per week. They are not permitted entry during Muslim holy days and holidays either.

Non-Muslims are not allowed to bring bibles or Torah's or any other religious books or material. It is forbidden to wear any religious clothing or insignia such as the crucifix or the Star of David. Non-Muslims are not allowed to pray either out loud or silently or sing while on the Mount. None of these restrictions apply to Muslims. Israel also restricts the number of 'religious' Jews that can visit at a time. These are Jews that can be identified by their Fred's or hair styles. These groups are escorted through the complex but armed Israeli police because of the number of times they have been attacked and targeted by Muslim visitors.

Prior to 7 October 2023 Israel had:

- Tens of thousands of Arabs entering Israel daily from Gaza and the West Bank for employment opportunities for which they were paid the same as Israelis under Israel's labour laws. This usually meant they were earning four to five times what an employee in Gaza or The West Bank would typically earn for the same job.

Sadly, some of these workers were involved in the 7 October attacks providing detailed information about the civilian targets. For security reasons, most of these jobs have been lost which has created0 significant financial hardship in Gaza and The West Bank.

- Provided urgent and specialist health care for Arabs from Gaza and Arab parts of the West Bank upon request.

- Provided electricity, water, sewerage and communications services at cost to parts of Gaza and Arab parts of The West Bank by mutual agreement.

Despite having been attacked by their Arab neighbours on multiple occasions, Israel has never ceased to try to find a peaceful means of coexistence with their Arab neighbours.

Israelis have achieved decades of peaceful coexistence with Egypt and Jordan which have benefited from mutual treaties regarding defence and sharing of technological and agricultural know how.

On September 15, 2020, the United States, United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain signed the historic Abraham Accords negotiated by the Trump administration.

With this accomplishment, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain charted a new course in the history of Arab-Israeli relations by recognizing the State of Israel and normalizing diplomatic relations. Later that year, two other Arab nations, Sudan and Morocco, followed suit and joined the Abraham Accords, raising the number of Arab States with formal diplomatic ties to Israel from two to six.

One of the most important outcomes of the Abraham Accords is the change in people-to-people relationships between the signatory countries. They have seen a blossoming of bilateral initiatives within the private sector and civil society.

The geopolitical and economic benefits have spillover effects across the region, and the world.

The Accords established a foundation for peace and collaboration that can be tapped into by any country interested in cooperation.

The Abraham Accords advance the two-state solution by opening channels of communications between the Arab states of the Gulf and Israel. This change gave Palestinians, especially youth, a new opportunity to make demands from their leadership to benefit from the Accords.

Sadly there are many Arab Muslims who do not want to have friendly relationships with Israel regardless of the detrimental cost to their own people. Iran was most concerned by the Abraham Accords because they watched on as the Sunni Muslim countries increased their geopolitical strength through these peace and cooperation accords with Israel.

Iran sees themselves and Shia Muslims as the rightful superpower in The Middle East. When the Biden Administration lifted the sanctions imposed by the Trump Administration against Iran for breaching the nuclear deal signed under Obama, that gave Iran hundreds of billions of dollars which became available to help fund their war on Israel and the West.

Threatened by the success of the peace accords between Israel and Sunni Arab countries, Iran stepped up their support for Hizballah, Palestinian terrorist groups in Gaza, and various terrorist and militant groups in Iraq, Syria, Bahrain, and elsewhere throughout the Middle East.

Iran used the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Qods Force (IRGC-QF) to provide support to terrorist organizations, provide cover for associated covert operations, and create instability in the region. Iran has acknowledged the involvement of the IRGC-QF in the Iraq and Syria conflicts, and the IRGC-QF is Iran’s primary mechanism for cultivating and supporting terrorist activity abroad.

Since the end of the 2006 Israeli-Hizballah conflict, Iran has supplied Hizballah in Lebanon with thousands of rockets, missiles, and small arms in violation of UNSCR 1701. Israeli security officials and politicians expressed concerns that Iran was supplying Hizballah with advanced weapons systems and technologies, as well as assisting the group in creating infrastructure that would permit it to indigenously produce rockets and missiles to threaten Israel from Lebanon and Syria.

We saw this happen after the 7 October HAMAS attack and Israel have evacuated a great part of their northern population in anticipation of further attacks.

Iran has provided hundreds of millions of dollars in support of Hizballah and trained thousands of its fighters at camps in Iran. Hizballah fighters have been used extensively in Syria to support the Assad regime.

In 2021, Iran continued providing weapons systems and other support to Hamas and other U.S.-designated Palestinian terrorist groups, including Palestine Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command.

These groups were behind numerous deadly attacks originating in Gaza and the West Bank on and since 7 October 2023.

Because of the rocket attacks in Israel from Hizballah in Lebanon and Syria in the north, and from HAMAS and other Iran terrorist groups in the south, and the threat of significant further attacks, hundreds of thousands of Israelis including Arab Israelis have been displaced from their homes. Many are living in tent camps and have seen their jobs and businesses shut down.

I'm continually stunned by the ignorance of the anti-Israeli lobby in the West.

It's not as if The Middle East would break out in peace if Israel was totally destroyed. We'd just see the different Muslim groups continue to fight each other and seek to destroy or take over the West at the same time.

At the current rate, the West is doing a pretty good job imploding in on itself with our Universities and the political Left teaching our citizens that there is nothing good about The West to fight for.

If only our citizens were as brave and committed as those in Israel. Perhaps if we can help save Israel, there's a chance for our own democracies to survive?
