America erases its past as Israel resurrects 3000 years-old history

It is amazing that in the midst of an unprecedented global economic shutdown – some Americans are presently hell-bent on erasing America’s past by pulling down statues of controversial persons in America’s deeply-troubled history and engaging in cultural cancelling – whilst Israelis are simultaneously planning to resurrect Jewish history by restoring Israeli sovereignty in the Jewish people’s biblical heartland – Judea and Samaria – after 3000 years.

Trashing America’s past is violent and unlawful – whilst Israel’s democratically elected Government is reinstating the Jewish People’s past in tandem with President Trump’s Peace Plan published on 28 January 2020.

Many American mayors and Governors have watched on – restraining their police forces from doing anything to halt these monuments to history being torn down by chanting mobs. Residents and businesses located in the affected cities will continue to pay a high price for these elected officials failing to allow the police to take back control of the streets and restore safety and security for all.

Alarmingly many of these mayors and Governors are now considering defunding or replacing their police forces in what can only be described as abject surrender in the face of extreme provocation by rampaging and looting protestors out of control and oblivious to maintaining any semblance of complying with the laws of social distancing that the majority populations in these cities under attack follow, respect and obey.

As this epidemic of unbridled lawlessness spreads worldwide – the international community’s response to Israel’s intended application of sovereignty in 1697km2 of Judea and Samaria’s 5655km2 is deeply troubling.

An avalanche of international opposition – led by the United Nations and European Union – falsely claims that Israel is acting “in flagrant violation of international law” – ignoring:

  • The San Remo Resolution and the Treaty of Sevres 1920
  • The League of Nations Mandate for Palestine 1922
  • Article 80 of the United Nations Charter 1945
  • President Bush’s written commitment to Israeli Prime Minister Sharon on 14 April 2004 overwhelmingly approved by the Congress by 502 votes to 12 (America’s Commitment) – promising that Israel’s unilateral withdrawal from Gaza would not require Israel to withdraw from all of Judea and Samaria.
  • The Quartet – Russia, United Nations, European Union and America – endorsing America’s Commitment on 4 May 2004
  • Israeli Prime Minister Olmert acknowledging Israel’s reliance on America’s Commitment at the Annapolis Conference on 27 November 2007:

“The negotiations [with the PLO] will be based on previous agreements between us, UN Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338, the Roadmap and the April 14th 2004 letter of President Bush to the Prime Minister of Israel.”

51 nation states comprised the League of Nations that unanimously approved Judea and Samaria forming part of the area proposed for reconstitution of the Jewish National Home:

Albania, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, British India, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, El Salvador, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Italy, Japan, Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes, Latvia, Liberia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Persia, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Republic of China, Romania, Siam, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Union of South Africa, United Kingdom, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

These states who are now United Nations and/or European Union members supporting the current cacophony of “flagrant violation of international law” – need to hang their heads in collective shame. They are encouraging an atmosphere of Jew-hatred and incitement to violence. 

Pray for America as its past is being trashed and its future is distinctly uncertain.

Recognise the resurrection of sovereignty in the Jewish people’s biblical heartland after 3000 years as a modern-day miracle that could help end the 100 years-old Arab-Jewish conflict.

    I assume from the viewpoint expressed by this author that he thinks it abhorrent when Palestinian terrorists are honored by plazas and other monuments in Palestinian cities – as he should be. I wonder why he thinks that monuments to those leaders of the Confederacy and Confederate Army are different. The people honored by these statues were fighting to maintain a horrific system of slavery for which they were willing to tear the United States apart. And the troubling history of these monuments is that those who erected them were themselves engaged in “cultural cancelling,” in trying to erase the true nature of America’s recent past at the time. These monuments were not established immediately post-war to recognize their heroes – because they were traitors to the United States. They were erected in the early part of the 20th Century during the rise of intimidation, the Klu Klux Klan, voter suppression, Jim Crow laws and lynching designed to erase any progress in rights for African Americans, particularly in the south. The benefactors of these monuments were trying to reclaim a past in which the white man was Master, and these were the “heroes” who fought to keep it that way. Imagine how that makes the descendants of slaves who STILL find themselves fighting injustice – fighting for their lives – feel. White folks who care about racial injustice empathize and are left scratching our heads when we see Confederate flags flying in Michigan – a state with a proud tradition of having fought for and sacrificed for the Union. Displaying such a flag or protecting Confederate monuments is not celebrating American history – it is intended to send a message that hate and racism is still alive and well, all across the United States. Reasonable people may have differing views on how to handle these monuments – pull them down and pulverize them, put them in a museum with appropriate context, etc – but they are not glorious homages to America’s past.

      I find it abhorrent when people disregard the rule of law.
      Arson, looting and the tearing down of public monuments without lawful approval should be condemned whenever and wherever they occur and those involved prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Work to change the laws by all means but don’t violate those laws that exist.

  2. Eion Isaac says:

    All Statues are forbidden in Jewish Law and so getting rid of Statues goes by the Laws of Noah .
    But it is wrong to do so violently as it could endanger human life .
    As for annexation of the 30% of Judea and Samaria it is Unnecessary and Provocative NationalIst Egoism .

    • DAVID SINGER says:

      Eion

      “Annexation” means taking territory to which you have no claim.

      Israel has a legal claim to Judea and Samaria based on the six matters enumerated in my article.

      Words count.
