FOLLOW THE BETRAYAL TRAIL

"When a Trojan Horse dumps a pile of manure..."
First there is a visit by globe-trotting journalist, Tom Friedman, to the then Sheik King of Saudi Arabia, Faisel and Abdullah. ‘Somehow’, Friedman manages to bring a ‘plan’ to the Saudis which, while not announced, seems to have the U.S. pro-Arab State Department fingerprints all over it.
"All Israel has to do to achieve world peace is to withdraw her people, first to the 1967 Armistice Lines" [- which, of course, would include Gaza, Judea and Samaria, the Jordan Valley and - at least half of Jerusalem]. "Then Israel must agree to the ‘Right of Return’ of the poor Muslim Arab refugees" [not the original 450,000 but now the 3 to 5 million who incubated from the original bunch.]
"Good plan", says then President George H.W. Bush and James Baker - as if they had suddenly been taken by surprise by the "Bold" plan of the Saudis as delivered by the ‘well-meaning’ Tom Friedman.
This was followed by the Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, Shimon Peres and Yossi Beilin who cooked the now failed Oslo Accords which has so far killed at least 1700 Jews and wounded tens of thousands more, with irremovable bolts, nails, some coated with rat poison, many maimed for life.
So, the Saudi-U.S. State Department plan was kept in motion by the Leftist politicians and media - even though it didn’t quite work from the start.
Then came Gen. Ariel Sharon as Israel Prime Minister [elected on a platform NOT to negotiate with the PLO, or withdraw from anyplace]. He was bound up like Gulliver by the Lilliputians and made a ‘stab’ at moving the plan along by gifting the Gush Katif/Gaza Strip and 4 Northern Samarian Jewish communities to the proven and self-declared Arab Muslim Palestinian Terrorists.
As we all see and now know [as forecast by most of Israel high military and intelligence generals], after the 10,000 Jewish men, women and children were forcibly evicted from the beautiful homes, farms, schools, factories, businesses, synagogues and even from their cemeteries, Gaza has become a firing platform for missiles. [So has Northern Samaria but so far those rockets and missiles have been launched as if they were never seen.]
Even Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran’s President has made an offer to send all sorts of ‘technical assistance’ to Gaza (read: weapons and missile engineers) - the donor nations of Europe, America as well as, surprise, even Israel have all donated ‘humanitarian aid’ to the poor Palestinians. [Since we know or should know, that money is fungible, where does that money go and what does it buy in high tech, longer range, more accurate Rockets and Missiles to launch OVER the meaningless Wall?]
So, Bush, Jr. picked up where his father left off in the ‘Saudi Plan’ from his good oil buddy the Sheik King and added the recruitment of the once great warrior, Ariel (Arik) Sharon. Arik acted like Josephus, also a great general, who went over to the Romans and assisted them with his inside knowledge of how Jews think, fight and can be defeated.
Sharon succeeds in doing a 108º political switcheroo and after his "ethnic cleansing" of 10,000 hard-working good Jews, Sharon succumbs to crossed wires or vessels in his brain and leaves the job to his collaborator, Ehud Olmert - who always thought the abandonment of Jewish Land for Peace [or for Nothing] was a good idea.
Olmert, now PM, gathers up the Leftists and once again the ersatz Saudi/Friedman Plan moves forward. Olmert states plainly, even before the election, that he will divide Jerusalem, remove ‘some’ [now 60,000-100,000, depending on who’s counting] of the Jewish men, women and children from Judea and Samaria (the west bank), which really means ‘all’ the settlements once he unleashes Gen. Dan Halutz, the valiant IDF’s current Chief of Staff. Halutz seems to hate the settlers even more than Olmert and Peres. [Why the ‘Hate’ you ask? Probably because they hate their own Jewishness and would really like to be just like the rest of the world so they can be liked and live luxuriously with the world’s approval and love.]
Olmert is now moving in fast and huge increments toward the 1949 Armistice Lines which he declares will terminate further demands by Hamas, the biggest Terrorist in the Palestinian Muslim organizations and the other Muslim nations, like Iran.
"Some say dumb is curable, but stupid is forever."
So Olmert floats himself over to the U.S. to present what he now calls ‘his’ plan, titled "Convergence". [What does that mean?] Of course, his plan is really the State Department/Saudi Plan from the beginning. Bush plays it cagey. [The U.S. State Department really runs America’s foreign policy, but that’s supposed to be secret.]
Meanwhile the State Department Middle East desk boys have been huddling with Olmert, Peres, Halutz, Livni and the other mix of Kadimites and Leftists. (I include the new Defense Minister, Amir Peretz, who never saw battle as an officer but, he knows how to cause big Labor strikes as former head of the Histadrut, Israel’s Labor Union.) Peretz has the confidence of Olmert who has also never seen combat as a soldier, but he is another armchair wannabe General.
So, the State/Saudi/Friedman Plan continues forward - now with the limp approval President Bush, Jr., Olmert and the Palestinian Authority’s limp President Mahmoud Abbas (aka Abu Mazen) Mazen was the ‘suit’ as Yassir Arafat’s co-partner in developing Terrorism for more than 40 years - whether anti-Israel, anti-Jewish, anti-any non-Muslim - like the Terror attacks on America all over the world - if you were watching.
After Olmert makes his play for approval and money in Washington, Abu Mazen comes up with a new approach. Abu Mazen is going to hold a referendum among the Palestinian Arab Muslim people, most of whom have already expressed their disapproval of Abu Mazen by voting overwhelmingly for Hamas - the toughest Terrorists in the neighborhood.
So Abu Mazen, following the lead of Olmert, Bush and the State Department, announces that the referendum is based on the following:
Israel leaves East Jerusalem (that includes the most Holy of Holy Jewish sites).
Israel leaves the West Bank, among other items yet to be released in his referendum.
[So far, plans for the Jordan Valley and the Golan Heights are under cover.]
I presume the reader understands that this is the Saudi evacuation plan of the Jews, merely under a non-binding bluff called a "Referendum". That makes it ‘democratic’, because people are voting - just like real Western Democratic nations. Hooray for Democracy. We won!
Recall that Rabin-Peres-Netanyahu-Barak and then Sharon used to play the "Referendum" card but, none of them ever took the chance and brought any plan to the people of Israel to vote on their own future lives.
Now Abu Mazen, who nobody cares about is offering a ‘Referendum’ hustle, intended to somehow force a ballot where Hamas will declare that they accept the decision to cease Terror and Recognize Israel (which is a big no-no in Islam and, therefore, laughable on the face of it.)
A Muslim ‘Jihadist’ can agree to anything to beat his foe and then abrogate his agreement in nano-seconds. This phony absurd State Department/Saudi Plan will be sold to the Israeli people on the basis that the Palestinian people who are taught to be Terrorists from childhood are going to give up the only thing that takes them from their self-perception of earned inferiority and live in Peace [Where?] with the hated Jewish infidel.
C’mon, give me a break!
Even a rabid Leftist who hates the hard-working, high achieving settlers who are the dominant percent of officers in the Army could not possibly fall for this load of Trojan Manure. On the other hand, they fell for Oslo; they fell for Ehud Barak’s midnight run out of Lebanon - leaving it to the Iranian and Syrian backed Hezb’Allah now armed with at least 13,000 missiles, some possibly with chemical warheads.
Note! Today, May 28th "the North erupted as predicted, on this the 6th anniversary of the craven Israeli retreat from Lebanon. The IDF replied fast and furious. A few Popular Front bases were knocked out of the Opium growing area of Lebanon which hurts Syrian President Assad’s finances and future. The Druze and Christians in Lebanon spoke out against Hezb’Allah and a cease-fire was arranged for now. Meanwhile, armoured vehicles could be seen being transported up north." **
They fell for Arafat’s agreements, siege of the Church and ‘Hudnas’ (temporary cease-fires). Maybe they will fall for the Olmert version of State/Saudi/Friedman/Bush Plan and wait for Peace after the Terrorists fill up Judea and Samaria, as well as Gaza, Jerusalem, the Jordan Valley and the Golan Heights. Then the Terrorist Kassem Rockets and Katyusha Missiles can fire directly into their bedrooms in Tel Aviv and Haifa.
As I noted earlier..."Stupid is forever."
So my dear Jews, that’s the bag of manure you are being asked to buy. I can only hope our Christian friends will not fall for the Saudi gift of what comes out of the back of a Trojan Horse.
In cause you missed the connection, for some time the Left has been closer to the Saudis and the Arabist State Department than they have ever been with the pioneering Jews they once admired and now conspire against as they brutally evict them with shocking hatred.
Conspiring with foreign governments to subvert your own nation and her people is called "treason", usually subject to capital punishment upon conviction during war. This is the on-going 100 year War of the Jews. Are we going to win or lose? You decide and then act accordingly.
