The Deadly Israeli House Strikes Again

There are few weapons as deadly as the Israeli house. When its brick and mortar are combined together, the house, whether it is one of those modest one story hilltop affairs or a five floor apartment building complete with hot and cold running water, becomes far more dangerous than anything green and glowing that comes out of the Iranian centrifuges.

Forget the cluster bomb and the mine, the poison gas shell and even tailored viruses. Iran can keep its nuclear bombs. They don't impress anyone in Europe or in Washington. Genocide is a minor matter when in the presence of the fearsome weapon of terror that is an Israeli family of four moving into a new apartment.

Sudan may have built a small mountain of African corpses, but it can't expect to command the full and undivided attention of the world until it does something truly outrageous like building a house and filling it with Jews. Since the Sudanese Jews are as gone as the Jews of Egypt, Iraq, Syria and good old Afghanistan, the chances of Bashir the Butcher pulling off that trick are rather slim.

Due to the Muslim world's shortsightedness in driving out its Jews from Cairo, Aleppo and Baghdad  to Jerusalem, the ultimate weapon in international affairs is entirely controlled by the Jewish State. The Jewish State's stockpile of Jews should worry the international community far more than its hypothetical stockpiles of nuclear weapons. No one besides Israel, and possibly Saudi Arabia, cares much about the Iranian bomb. But when Israel builds a house, then the international community tears its clothes, wails, threatens to recall its ambassadors and boycott Israeli peaches.

Angry British men in red Keffiyahs hold up signs about the Holocaust in front of Jewish cosmetics stores in London. Marginalized French youth, by way of Algeria and Tunisia, hurl stones at synagogues. John Kerry interrupts a speech on the dangers of Global Warming as an aide notifies him of an even bigger threat to the world. David just made a down payment on a two bedroom in Gvaot.

You can spit on the White House carpets and steal all the gold in Greece. You can blow up anything you like and threaten anyone you will, but you had better not lift a drill near the hills from which Balaam tried and failed to curse the Jewish people. Where the old Mesopotamian warlock failed, his successors in the United Nations follow in his footsteps by cursing Israel every day of the week.

Some may think that nuclear weapons are the ultimate weapons, but as we see, time and time again, the ultimate weapon is a hammer and a fistful of nails in a Jewish hand.

Obama has yet to dig up a strategy for ISIS and can't think of what to do about Putin in the Ukraine, but there's always a final status solution strategy for Israel which involves destroying as many Jewish houses as possible and driving out the families living inside them.

Everyone has their standards. There are things that we all cannot abide. And for all the Miss America answers about ending war, hunger and people who wear plaid in public, the one thing that everyone will stand up against or sit down in opposition to is the Israeli house.

China announcing that there would be no democracy in Hong Kong, ISIS losing a battle to Iraqi forces and Jihadists occupying the US embassy in Tripoli were all minor stories thoroughly buried by the horrifying report that Israel might "seize" 988 acres of land for housing.

From the amount of media coverage you might have thought that Israel had conquered France or Kuwait instead of allocating some land the size of a farm or a ranch for housing. If Israel had only allocated 2,000 acres, then aliens could have landed in Berkeley and the news would have been buried under coverage of the houses which might be build and on which Jews might one day live.

The land being "seized" had belonged to Israel and had no prior claims against it. If Qatar had decided to finance a Muslim construction project on the site, no one would have been opposed. But there are different rules for the Jews. There have always been different rules about where the Jews can live. International law is the new ghetto. Its enforcers are diplomats and BDS.

The State Department has claimed that building houses is "counterproductive" to peace. On the other hand the Palestinian Authority's funding of terrorists never seems to be counterproductive. The legal decision about the land was made in accordance with the existing Ottoman law of the Muslim empire. But Muslim laws are only supposed to be applied when they advantage Muslims.

White House officials have in the past claimed that Netanyahu "humiliated" Obama by authorizing the building of houses. While Russia may threaten nuclear war against the United States, and Iran  may play Obama for a fool, only Israel has managed to achieve official recognition for "humiliating" Obama, without even trying, proving once again that the Jewish race is so talented that it often achieves things that other peoples may only dream of without even realizing that it is doing it.

Now that Netanyahu has gone to the mattresses, literally, by authorizing new housing, the media will begin braying that Israel has humiliated Obama all over again. They say that every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings. But every time an Israeli jackhammer roars, Obama stands, like that famous trash-mourning fake Indian, with a tear slowly making its way down one glistening cheek at the sight of another humiliating Israeli house.

According to the New York Times, which is never wrong, building more houses makes peace impossible. Peace, which is not in any way obstructed by rockets, suicide bombers, unilateral statehood bids and declarations of war, comes up against only one obstacle. The stout unyielding wall of the Israeli house.

You can shell Israeli houses, bomb them and break inside to massacre the people living inside, but then after all that, Israel goes and builds more of those damn things.

Hamas shoots thousands of rockets and Israel builds thousands of houses. But Israeli houses generally stay where they're built, while Hamas rockets are as likely to kill Gazans as they are to put holes in the roofs of those dastardly houses. And in the arms race between houses and rockets, the Israelis appear to be winning. And that's not good for peace.

If Israelis get the dangerous idea that they can just keep building houses and outlast all the talented rocketeers who spend their time with the Koran in front of one eye and the Anarchist's Cookbook in front of the other, what hope is there for peace?

That is why no one cares much about Hamas rockets, which mostly kill Israelis, who most reasonable people in London, Paris and Brussels think have it coming anyway, but get into a foaming lather about an Israeli house.

Killing Israelis has never been any obstacle to peace. Twenty years of killing Israelis has not dissuaded a single Israeli government from sitting down at the table to dicker with the terrorists. But an Israeli family living in a house is holding down territory that it will be harder to then cede to terrorists when the angels have blown their horns, the seas have all gone dry and peace is carried in on a golden platter by 72 virgins accompanied by their flying suicide bomber mates.

The problem is an old one. Pharaoh struggled with it. So did Hitler. And so does Hamas. What do you do when there are too many Jews living. The answer is usually obvious.

Israel's Peace Partners tried to go back to the time-honored Egyptian tradition of throwing all the Jews into the sea. But despite an entire officer corps temporarily "on leave" from the armed forces of the United Kingdom, they only got as far as half of Jerusalem, where they blew up every synagogue, and took the West Bank of Israel, or as the non-indigenous Zionist invaders with no roots in the region call it, Judea and Samaria.

Nineteen years later, Israel's Peace Partners had traded in their British officer corps for a Soviet officer corps, and lost Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza, proving that when it came to killing Jews, the Communists were better at it when the Jews weren't shooting back. Ever since then the world, or those portions of it populated entirely by diplomats and the better class of journalists, has been urging Israel to give back the land to an imaginary country to be populated entirely by terrorists.

This peace plan, which has worked as well as fighting fire with gasoline, has not in any way been endangered by two decades of terror, but trembles down to its toes every time an Israeli hammer falls on an Israeli nail. Because that land must go back so that rockets can be shot from it into Israel, so that Israel can invade it and reclaim it, and then sit down for another peace process to return the land from which the rockets will be fired, which will be invaded, which will be given back... for peace.

And Israeli houses endanger this cycle of peace and violence. They endanger it by creating "facts on the ground", a piquant phrase that only seems to apply to houses with Jews. Muslim houses in no way create facts on the ground, even though they are built out of the same material and filled with people. Or perhaps they create the good kind of facts on the ground. The kind of preemption of negotiations that the professional peacemakers approve of.

But it's hard to know what exactly the peacemakers approve of, because their arguments and their definitions keep changing all the time. All that we know is that they disapprove of Israeli houses.

The United States repeatedly assured Israel that Jerusalem would in no way be endangered by the peace process. No less a personality than Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. co-sponsored three Senate resolutions urging that Jerusalem should remain Israel's undivided capital. Then like all good politicians, he was horribly offended when the Israelis actually took him at his word.

Obama gave an election speech where he declared that Jerusalem should be undivided. A day later he explained that he meant "undivided" in some spiritual sense that did not preclude it from actually being physically divided.

UN Chief Ban Ki-moon has declared Israeli houses to be an "almost fatal blow" to the peace process. It is, of course, only an "almost fatal blow"  because the peace process, like Dracula, cannot be killed. Israeli houses, fearsome as they may be with their balconies and poor heating in winter, are never quite enough to kill it.

Like the monster of a horror movie, the peace process always comes back and no matter how many blows the Israeli house delivers to it, a year later there's a sequel where the Israeli house is being stalked by the peace process monster all over again.

The army of lethal Israeli houses, which may not be built for another five years, if ever, seem formidable in the black newsprint of the New York Times and in the fulminations of Guardian columnists, but their actual potency is limited to housing Jewish families and infuriating international diplomats and their media coathangers.

Europe is furious, Obama is seething, the UN is energized, and somewhere in Iraq, the Caliph of ISIS wipes the grease out of his beard and wonders what he could do to get this much attention. He briefly scribbles down some thoughts on a napkin but then dismisses them as being too implausible.

As much as it might get the world's attention, there is no way ISIS can build houses for Jews in Israel.

    Greenfield is like the greats of picaresque literature - employing a mask (in the form of sarcasm) to unmask the hypocrisy, falsehoods and perfidy of the "ruling class." He just keeps getting better all the time.

    If the peace process was a Hollywood franchise (actually it is. I guess I mean an entirely Hollywood franchise). It would already have been a straight to video movie and only found on Netflix. The part of John Kerry will be played by the Travelocity garden gnome. The only people who will want to see it would be people dumb enough to get it on pre-order. Those people are ten liberal Jews who think reading Thomas Friedman is a style statement and hipster poseurs who haven't realized that joining Islam is the new hip and they are already so two and half minutes ago..

    Jews should learn from our "friends" in the international community if anyone would dare to talk to them as they are talking to us they would laugh in their faces. Hey, Bibi we are not ghetto Jews anymore thanks to Hashem, why did you cave in? You must resign, I vote for Naftali. Bibi why are your sons not serving in the IDF.?

    The World - "Hamas builds houses for people, Israel builds houses to nearly doom the peace process"
    A lot of jerks in The World, many of them in the DoS.

    Wry and wise…!

    I might add, the reason the anti-historic, anti-reality, anti-Semite, anti-Zionist, anti-Israeli house naysayers bitch so much is not because of the house itself, but because of the foundation on which the house sits, not to mention what goes on inside those houses.

    As far as the foundation, the world in general and Hamas in recent history has forgotten the name Jehovah. That’s the well-known Conglomerate responsible for building the foundations under all those Israeli homes. Hamas has been using a different company – Asherah Poles, Inc. – and they never seem to get a foothold on the future.

    Also, we all know what goes on inside those Israeli homes – they’re making a whole bunch of new Jew babies.

    And those stingy self-absorbed money grubbers keep pumping out advanced radar systems, developing vast new natural gas reserves, designing cutting-edge digital technology, and life-saving disease serums, when they could be helping the world develop better tunnels.

    The fact they have turned their desert land into gardens and crops which help feed Europe as well as the Palestinians – even during conflict, and the fact their hospitals treat Palestinian women and children and even Hamas combatants in time of war, simply bespeaks an effort to sway the media in their favor.

    The worst part is they don’t name a single baby Mohammed. They name their kids stupid names like Moses, Elijah, David, Einstein, and Greenfield.

    LOVE IT.

    This is my new favourite of your articles. Absolutely superb. Have tweeted a link to it and am sharing it far and wide. I only wish everyone saw things as clearly as you.

  13. You forgot the other major terror weapons:
    Baby Strollers, Ultra-Orthodox Jews, A Torah Education, No TV.

  14. You say all reasonable people. Damn I never thought I was so unreasonable. I mean who'd ever expect a people who faced liquidation at the hands of a genocidal madman to object to allowing their neighbours to try the same again!
    Iran is working hard to build a nuke but that pales in comparison to Israeli weapons of mass construction.
    Ok as a white, middle aged British Christian maybe I'm in the minority but as far as I'm concerned the Israelis can build houses for Jews until they hit the Atlantic to the west, Russia in the East and if they don't stop before they hit Capetown in the South I still wouldn't grumble.
    As for the present occupiers realistically they have done zilch for progress of the human race and I have little doubt that the Nobel prize winners of that entire area are dwarfed by the number found in Israel.
    Maybe I'm alone in my wrong headed opinion, but then why do so many agree with me? Sure we're not super educated journalists. We haven't taken all the required trendy lefty courses. Maybe thats why were just so plain wrong.
    Still keep those hammers going, the ringing is music to our ears.


  15. Temple Mount is a Vortex of metaphysical energy on Earth given to the patriarchs of the Jewish Nation for safekeeping over 3000 years ago by Ribonah Shel Olam, the Holy ONE. But Because the Israeli nation failed to reclaim and 'liberate' this Holiest Place in '67 when Israeli forces liberated Jerusalem after 2000 years, the results are obvious; the cancer of radical Islam has metastasized into a worldwide threat and the Jewish Nation is at greater peril than at any time in it's history. Israel and the entire world are racing towards destruction closer every day.
    The 'alien fire' of el Aqsa must be removed and the Holy Mount returned to the keepers of the Covenant. Only this will bring back the Blessing of Hashem.
    Consider this well.

    From Joseph Ezkosheez - 02/‎09/‎2014
    Like dogs that return to their vomit. So are the "Chamberlains" addicts Who [justify their income, existence & political fraud when they] "consume" from the Arabian Drugs Cabinet : [religion of] peace process, Oslo [Hudaybiyyah] Accords, [humiliating submission to ] unilateral disengagement, [& finally] withdrawal [from a life of dhimmitude]...illusions that end in death after suffering, grief & misery.

    Their heads are gone, and they are not aware of it, even when they see a black clothed British citizen "heading off" the skull of a orange clothed American citizen .

    Yes, the cause of all the world’s problems, especially growing Islamic rage and endless barbarity against all (including Muslim-on-Muslim killing in genocidal numbers) is due to some homes being built upon land of Israel outside the fake Auschwitz borders of Israel which is the size of one Texan ranch that was part of ancient Israel, part of the British Mandate and, by the way, included in the Oslo accords as the Jewish part of Israel not inhabited by “Palestinians.”

    As stated in the article, Israel has always been depicted as the destroyer of that elusive “peace” that never did exist in the region and is becoming more elusive by the day. The irony is that those fleeing from all that “peace” in places such as Iraq, Syria, Libya, Lebanon, etc., do not fleeing to Islamic countries; they are fleeing to Europe and America and bringing their Islamic version of “peace” with them to a campus or a city center near you. Some are fleeing to Israel for treatment of their self-inflicted jihadist terror-war wounds.

    Some of those “peaceful” ideologues are finding their way as advisors into the White House where a “peaceful” president, reluctant to disturb the perfect “peace” in those nice Islamic lands, is so eagerly willing to impose “peace” on Israel which requires unilateral dispossession of land, freedom, rights, and security.

    The “peace” being urged upon (and by) Obama by his Muslim Brotherhood friends in reality means war of submission on everyone else, especially Israel. This is truly a war on Israel - a propaganda war, and a war involving threats by the White House and State Department.

    We often hear of the US not wanting boots on the ground and that any confrontation with the new name given to the old Islamic butchers – ISIS – will require the (AWOL) Iraqi army, the Kurdish Peshmerga, and those non-existent moderates, the so called peace-loving Muslims of the region.

    Now if I were a sensible President of the USA I would be empowering the only real ally in the region with the strength to stand up to Islamism – Israel. But no, Obama want to weaken and shrink real powers able to deal with Islamists and to empower Iran and his choice of Islamic extremists as dictated to him by his buddies in Turkey and Qatar because they will make him as rich as Clinton one day once he is out of office.

    Daniel, It's not really the house, or the bricks or the nails. We both know that. It's that every house creates the potential for another Jewish family. Jewish families within Israel proper are bad enough, and one day, if the western world gets their way, they will help Islam push us into the sea. But more Jews in Yesha? That is crossing a major red line. Letting Jews spread out in Yesha will just make it that much harder for the moslems when they finally succeed in overcoming Israel and pushing us into the sea. As it is now 70% of the Jews live in the metropolitan area between Ashkelon and Haifa. Letting us move from there and spread out, would just make the job that much harder and the world cannot afford to see Islam fail in their mission.

  34. Daniel, I've loved your writing for years. I want to write like you when I grow up. Be well.
