Monday found the European Counterjihad on a bullet-proof bus heading into what the unknowledgeable/Liberal/Left know as the West Bank, but what historians — Israelis and others — know as Judea and Samaria.
The Western liberals who proclaim the area as “occupied” are known historically as the Useful Idiots. The City of Ariel, which did not exist in 1978, is now inhabited by Jews. And they inhabit it for a very good reason.
Israel is only 70 KM wide. From a mountain-top just outside Ariel, one can view with the naked eye Jordan on one side and the Mediterranean on the other. And through the valley that cuts through this mountainous region there are two roads. Just two roads.
One road leads to Iran, via Iraq and Jordan. An armoured column would come this way and this way only, so to control the hill tops around the area is a matter of geo-political importance.
During the 1967 war, the Muslim Arabs installed “Long Tom” cannons on the mountain tops, from where they shelled the civilians living in Tel Aviv, a mere 45 KM away.
When you next get involved in an argument with a liberal/leftist about the “occupied territories of the West Bank”, it might be a good time to point out the political/war realities. Islam wants the area back, because the Israelis would be rendered defenceless if they gave it up. Hence the concerted efforts of Islam and their Western useful idiots to do just that.
“But land for peace is how we will achieve peace in Israel!” squeal the Western liberals. Tell that to the inhabitants of Sderot. Israel gave up Gaza and the peace loving “Palestinians” turned it into a terror state from which they could attack Israeli civilians.
If Israel gave up the areas of Judea and Samaria, they would be wiped out within five years.
Tuesday was a tour of Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Museum. A harrowing experience made even worse by the chilling realisation that the “Never Again” is being made reality today by the unthinking politicians within Europe who are allowing a new Nazi Party to grow and thrive. These neo-totalitarians quite frankly have ambitions for non-Islamic Europeans that would put the atrocities against the Jews perpetrated by Adolf Hitler in the shade.
An afternoon visit to the Israeli Knesset was rounded off with a series of speeches made by members of the European delegation in between input from high-ranking Israeli politicians. Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff and your humble correspondent threw our oratorical hats into the ring, prior to retiring to a convivial bar where this very report is being painstakingly pounded out.
A more detailed report will be forthcoming. Meanwhile the delegation will retire gracefully via a frosted Heineken.
