Escalated attacks against Israel are setting up Trump’s ‘deal of the century’

Published

on

All of the players in the Middle East and around the world are watching the conflict between Israel and the militants in the Gaza Strip within Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). This is by design. The timing is too perfect.

In the coming weeks, White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner and his team will be presenting their Middle East peace plan. The unveiling could be just over a month away following the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan on June 4. By that time, it’s likely Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be forming a coalition government.

The Gaza Strip has been in a growing state of chaos for months as its people have been taking to the streets to protest living conditions in the area. They are sanctioned or blocked by multiple governments and organizations, making it difficult to get the necessary resources. But even if they received them, it’s unlikely they would go where they’re needed. Many have viewed past aggressions as attempts to garner sympathy and force international aid to be pushed through.

But the ongoing attacks today, which now include over 700 rockets and mortars fired into Israel, are a completely different degree of escalation. Both sides are talking about all-out war, and while neither Hamas nor Iran-backed Islamic Jihad is impotent, they are in no position to wage war against Israel without causing extreme harm to their tiny region.

That’s the point. They want to be harmed. Or, to be more specific, they leaders of Hamas and Islamic Jihad want the people living in their territory to be harmed by Israel to expand the already-unfathomable level of hatred towards the Jewish state from the international community.

This is why they commit, as Netahyahu calls it, “double war crime” by indiscriminately shooting at civilians from civilian centers. They are like comic book villains who hide behind the innocent while attacking other innocents, daring the good guys to try to hit them without harming the innocents. It’s sickening.

But this isn’t just about Israel. The Palestinian Authority is also an indirect target of the Hamas/PIJ. The hope is to center negotiations on the Gaza Strip first and foremost, giving them the leverage for additional influence over East Jerusalem and the West Bank. The PA wants to unify a Palestinian state under their authority, but Hamas has eyes on reversing that notion. This is why the timing of their attacks is significant. They want a bigger seat at the table and they’re willing to use rockets to force the issue.

I might actually work.

Meanwhile PA leader Mahmoud Abbas is stuck trying to retain control and relevance. He may not be able to retain either.

When things don’t seem to make sense, such as the incessant attacks on Israel by Hamas and Islamic Jihad, don’t assume it’s random. They want a bigger seat at the peace plan table and they’re willing to kill to get it.

Trump hits Biden on China connections

Trump hits Biden on China connections

One thing has been made clear by recent events as they pertain to China: They are dying for someone to beat President Trump next November. In many ways, they’re banking on it.

This should make every American, including Democrats, concerned because even more than Russia, China has the capabilities to get in and change the hearts and minds of Americans, hack the 2020 election, and set in motion events that will benefit them. We’re talking about a country with nearly unlimited resources when it comes to cyberwarfare and social engineering. If Russia was ever a real concern to Washington DC, China is the true 800-lb gorilla in the political influence room.

The President called out former Vice President Joe Biden for his and his family’s involvement in China. Speaking to Steve Hilton on the Fox News show, The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton, the President pointed to alarming facts about the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination.

The threat from China is far greater than that from Russia, both economically as well as geopolitically. They have been a stirring giant for years. For the 2020 election, their stirring may turn into game-changing action if we’re not watchful.

Economic portion of Middle East peace plan to be unveiled June 25 in Bahrain

Economic portion of Middle East peace plan to be unveiled June 25 in Bahrain

The long-anticipated “deal of the century” finally has an official date for a partial release. The economic portion, which will detail how Palestinians will be supported as well as how they can eventually support themselves, will be unveiled June 25, 2019, at the “Peace to Prosperity” economic forum in the Manama, Bahrain.

The plan, which has been brewing for over two years, is expected to trade land and economic considerations for peace and unity between Israel and a newly formed “New Palestine.” Earlier this month, an alleged leak of the highlights of the plan was leaked to Israeli press.

Opinion

We may be closer to actual peace in the Middle East than ever before. It may be a Pyrrhic victory for the administration and Israel if it’s successful; a two-state solution could mark the beginning of the end for the Jewish state as its enemies gain a nearer foothold where attacks can happen.

While the plan details are unknown, it must be assumed Israel wouldn’t risk it unless they were either coerced by the United States or if they were made to believe they could maintain security over the newly released lands on the West Bank.

But there’s a different specter that looms large over both Israel and a new Palestinian state. Iran and its proxies are bent on disrupting any peace plan that includes the continued existence of Israel, the dominance of Saudi Arabia in the region, or the influence of United States over the Middle East. They will do everything in their power to disrupt and subvert the peace plan efforts.

Quote

“We look forward to engaging with business and thought leaders from throughout the region and the world to build consensus around the best steps the international community can take to develop the foundation for a prosperous future.” – Jared Kushner

Final Thoughts

By releasing the economic portion first, the White House hopes to get support from the Arab world and Palestinians to pressure leadership into considering the plan. As of now, Palestinian leadership has preemptively rejected the plan.

Capt. Chuck Nash: Iranian regime trying to hold out in hopes Trump is not reelected

Capt Chuck Nash Things in Iran are getting worse by the day

Iran’s saber rattling continues as the U.S. military buildup reaches a point in which they can no longer expect to be able to defend themselves if they start a way. Meanwhile, the President lobbed a clear threat to them about their rhetoric and aggression.

Speaking on Fox News, retired U.S. Navy Captain Charles T. Nash said, “Regimes, whether it’s the Soviet Union or the current theocracy in Iran, they won’t stop loosening up until it’s too late, and when they do they know it’s all going to fly apart. The wheels are going to come off.”

Opinion

Iran has a serious problem, and it’s not the United States. Their leadership has been so obtuse during times of economic prosperity that they didn’t use it to help their people become self-sustaining. Now, they’re reliant on a government that doesn’t have the resources to help them, making this an issue that goes beyond oppression. They’re on the verge of financial collapse and the only solution is the one solution they will never consider.

As Nash noted in the video above, they won’t change. They can’t. It goes against their nature to do what’s right by their people if doing so means doing anything the United States, Saudi Arabia, or Israel want. Their pride will be the undoing of their people.

President Trump is the biggest reason they’re failing. At this point, all they can do is hope he loses reelection. If he does, they have a chance of recovering if they’re even able to survive that long. If he wins, they’re toast and they know it. Expect to see them attempt to interfere with our elections any way they can, including expansion of Endless Mayfly.

The defection of Ali Nasisi is most likely a huge blessing for America. As their ambitions appear to be coming to light, the information gleaned from the former Iranian Brigadier General has been invaluable.

Quote

“What they’re trying to do is hold out hope against hope, and if President Trump is reelected, then they’re going to have to figure out what they’re going to do.” – Captain Charles Nash

Final Thoughts

Iran is desperate. Now that their military aggression is on call by the President, they may have to resort to terrorism to achieve their goals of ousting Trump and spreading fear across the world.
