‘Over a barrel’
Deceptive dogmas that keep the oil flowing
These are what Britain and the EU have signed up to; it is clear that the EU – and indeed most of the Western World, including the UN – have adopted these policies:
1. To ensure a positive coverage of Arabs and Muslims, as well as their causes, in Western media.
This explains the anti-Israel bias in the Western media, which leads to a completely distorted view of the Arab-Israeli conflict, and especially as far as ‘the Palestinians’ are concerned.
2. For the European nations to recognise ‘Arab sovereignty’ over ‘East Jerusalem’.
The result of this policy is that we are seeing the fulfilment, at least in part, of Zechariah 12:3 before our very eyes: “On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.”
3. For Israel to withdraw to the “pre-1967 borders”.
The ‘pre-1967’ borders are not legally borders at all. They are armistice lines, and the Armistice Agreements signed in 1949 specify that the ceasefire lines were not to be recognised as international borders, and the territorial rights of neither side of the conflict were to be prejudiced. Moreover, Resolution 242 (which was wrongly re-interpreted by France) recognised that the 1949 Armistice Lines were insecure as far as Israel was concerned, and called on the parties to the conflict to negotiate the borders for a lasting peace. As far as Egypt and Jordan are concerned, that has happened. The Palestinians weren’t even mentioned in Resolution 242, because then they were not recognised as a party in the conflict.
4. The European governments are required to force Israel to accept the rights of a Palestinian Arab state to exist in Gaza, and the entire ‘West Bank’, including ‘East Jerusalem’.
Firstly, the right of the Jewish people to re-constitute their historic ‘National Home’ (ie a state) was a right established in international law in San Remo, and the Mandate for Palestine in the early 1920s. Historically Jerusalem was the Jewish capital city, and Judea and Samaria comprised the Jewish heartland. According to the legal principle of estoppel those rights cannot be rescinded by anyone but the beneficiary. Secondly, Jordan acquired the territory illegally in a war of aggression (albeit backed politically and militarily by Britain). Basically this means the territory was stolen from the Jewish people, and neither Jordan nor the so-called Palestinian people have a legal right to the territory. Their claim is a violation of the international law principle ex injuria jus non oritur, or “illegal acts cannot create law”, among others. Quite apart from the legal aspect, those nations that involve themselves with dividing the Land of Israel will face the Lord’s judgment described in Joel 3:1-3.
5. The European governments were obliged to recognise the PLO, under the leadership of Yasser Arafat, as the sole representative of the Palestinian Arabs.
During the 1970s, when the EAD agenda was adopted, the PLO was a terrorist organisation that was murdering Jews, blowing up planes as well as assassinating people on European soil and creating chaos across the Middle East. The mainspring of its ideology, as described in its founding charter, is the destruction of the Jewish state through armed struggle – i.e. terrorism. That charter has never been amended since 1968. The Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman, Mahmoud Abbas, is also Chairman of the PLO, and Saeb Erekat its General Secretary. Essentially, the two organisations are one and the same. The PLO has always been a terrorist organisation, and the evidence shows that it remains one to this day. The ‘pay to slay’ policy, whereby the
PA pays salaries to imprisoned terrorists’ families, is evidence of that.
6. To favour Arab/Muslim immigration into European countries, and for these immigrants to have the same rights as their own citizens.
Since the 1970s, the Muslim population in most European countries has risen very considerably. Without doubt this has been a factor in the rise of anti-Semitism across Europe in recent years.
