The Morning Report 12/1/23

Good morning, kids. What was obvious behind the scenes, given the players involved and their true feelings since the very beginning is now confirmed. The inept, illegitimate regime that is running this country (mostly into the ground) is an enemy of the state of Israel. Anthony Blinken, who doesn’t know his ass from his elbow and presided over the disastrous Afghanistan bug-out while sabotaging an end to the Ukraine war that could have happened at least a year ago had this exchange with the Israelis.

Blinken: You can’t operate in southern Gaza in the way you did in the north. There are two million Palestinians there. You need to evacuate fewer people from their homes, be more accurate in the attacks, not hit UN facilities, and ensure that there are enough protected areas [for civilians]. And if not? Then not to attack where there is a civilian population. What is your system of operation?

IDF Chief Herzi Halevi: We follow a number of principles — proportionality, distinction, and the laws of war. There were instances where we attacked on the basis of those principles, and instances where we decided not to attack, because we waited for a better opportunity.

Defense Minister Yoav Gallant: The entire Israeli society is united behind the goal of dismantling Hamas, even if it takes months.

Blinken: I don’t think you have the credit for that.

Blinken, normally a weak figure in public, issued his tough ultimatums in private, bringing the contradictions in U.S. policy to a head. Earlier this week, White House national security spokesman John Kirby said: “We don’t support southern operations, unless or until the Israelis can show that they’ve accounted for all the internally displaced people of Gaza.” He added that Israel had the “right and responsibility to eliminate” Hamas, though he did not explain how these two priorities could be reconciled.

It was not clear what Blinken meant by “credit” — whether financial credit from the U.S., or political credibility on the world stage. Israel has been saying for weeks that it expected the fight to destroy Hamas to take months, and perhaps a year.

A shorter fight would require more drastic military measures, at odds with the careful approach Israel has taken in an effort to avoid civilian casualties where possible.

Foggy Bottom and Kalorama do not want Hamas defeated. They do not care that their goal is to annihilate Israel since that would not be altogether out of keeping of their preferred outcome for the region, which is Iran as the dominant player. There’s also plain old decades-long Jew-hatred that goes back to the days of Cordell Hull if not longer. 

Now this demand to essentially call a halt and surrender, hostages or no hostages. And after being forced into this cease fire which Hamas violated almost instantaneously anyway. Israel cannot stop. It must not stop. It must annihilate everyone who either wields a weapon or opens his cake hole to ululate the massacre of Jews. Whatever DC wants, do the exact opposite. I hope Bibi finally gets it but I have my doubts. 

It’s no longer about merely the changing of administrations. Election-rigging aside, the globalist axis of evil has spent the past several decades changing entire swathes of the population via mass immigration/migration. When much of Europe, already predisposed to innate anti-Semitism, is transformed into a string of Islamic states with America sadly not far behind, Israel will well and truly have no chance. 

It’s somewhat encouraging that citizens from Ireland to France and even Sweden are trying to rise up, only to be stomped on by their own collaborationist leaders. But Israel aside, when one’s own children are mass-raped and stabbed in public, at some point, the mantra will be “enough is enough.”

Well the war on Christmas certainly started early this year. On the streets of New York. And in the ugliest way possible. By now everybody will have seen the footage of anti-Israel activists and pro-Palestinian extremists trying to disrupt the Christmas tree lighting at Rockefeller Center. Let’s ignore for a moment that one of the crowd was carrying a swastika and that the general mood of the crowd was more of a mob than a demonstration. What did they think they were doing?

Perhaps these thugs had been emboldened by managing to interrupt the Macy´s Thanksgiving Day parade. But what had Macy’s ever done to them? And why attack a Christmas tree lighting ceremony? Who do these people think they are? The answer is that they are fanatics, and fanatics who have whipped themselves up into a huge lie. The idiots trying to stop the Christmas tree lighting on Wednesday night kept chanting an “end to genocide.” But if any of these people had ever left their college dorm rooms they might have discovered that there is no genocide going on in Gaza.In fact, in the 18 years since the Israelis left Gaza (forcibly removing every last Jewish resident) the population of Gaza has boomed. In the last 18 years the population of Gaza has gone from 1,299,000 people to around 2.1-2 million people. In other words the population of Gaza has grown by almost a million people since the Israelis left. Which is one reason why you hear so much about the youthful population of Gaza.

Perhaps if any of the members the forward-operating unit of the anti-Christmas tree brigade were capable of thinking they could answer an obvious question. Where is the genocide? Is it not happening? Or are the Israelis trying to commit genocide against the people of Gaza yet are so bad at committing genocide that the population actually grows while they´re trying to kill everyone? I’d love to hear the answer. Of course the crowd of Christmas-tree disrupters had another chant. “From the River to the Sea.” I doubt that many of them know what river they are hollering about or could identify the Sea in question on a map. But for their information, a Palestinian state from the river Jordan to the Mediterranean Sea would mean the elimination of the world’s only Jewish state.

And not just that. Both Hamas (which runs Gaza) and the Palestinian Authority who run the West Bank (and who celebrated the 7th October massacres) have both said (to borrow Adolf Hitler’s phrase) that they want the whole land to be “judenrein.” That is “cleansed of Jews.” Notice that they are not saying, “Two states for two people” or “Two peoples living side by side.” No such thing. Just clear of Jews. And if the Jewish people have to be “cleansed” from their own state then what is meant to happen to them? Should they all be killed? Or deported? Where should they go? Back to the Arab countries that kicked them out? Again — an interesting question I would love to know the answer to.The fact is that these thugs are issuing genocidal chants. And doing it on the streets of New York. How did it come to this? Well one thing is that since the mass murder of Jews on October 7th the sewers have burst in country after country. Mainly in what we think of as the civilized West. It is American college campuses which have seen the normalization of genocidal racist chants. It is American Jews who now fear for their safety. Even lifelong leftists like Chuck Schumer now realize this. They realize that the “never again” that guided their politics is happening right now.

And the reasons? Well there are several. One was highlighted by the late Henry Kissinger in an interview he gave recently. As the usually terse and circumspect Dr. Kissinger told a friend: “It was a grave mistake to let in so many people of totally different cultural and religious concepts. Because it creates a pressure group inside each country that does that.” Across Europe the countries that had the most lax immigration policies in recent years are now seeing a serious public backlash. Last week the streets of Dublin were burning. Literally. After a North African migrant went on a stabbing spree against Irish children the public turned out in fury — setting fire to police cars and other vehicles. The public had said for a long time that migration was out of control. But the authorities ignored them. Even after another migrant beheaded two gay men and stabbed another in the face because he did not like their way of life.Yet what has been the reaction of the Irish government? They have called all the people who protested “far-right” and they are looking into introducing emergency laws to stop people criticizing migration. Good luck with that.

The Netherlands tried something similar and in their recent election the Dutch public gave the biggest share of the vote to Geert Wilders. A man who has in the past called for the Koran to be banned and for mass deportations from his country. It is the same everywhere in Europe, where parties that have been called “far-right” for years are now coming to power. Brave American Muslims like Asra Nomani have tried to warn Americans that the same troubles roiling Europe are also happening here. They have tried to warn that radicals are taking over their religion. But it is people like Asra Nomani who get demonized and threatened for their brave stance. Not the radicals.And then you get the idiot fellow-travelers. The young generation who actually believe the lies that Hamas and others shove around the world´s media.

When an American patriot showed up at Wednesday´s Christmas ceremony with an American flag a protestor tried to tear the American flag from his hands and others shouted “Allahu Akbar.” The attack in October was a tragedy for Israel. But it has also highlighted a looming tragedy in our own countries. Because it never was just about Israel. It’s about all of us.

It should be noted that the mass migration from Muslim countries has been going on for decades in England and France in particular, mostly as a result of their legacies as former colonial overlords of places like Pakistan and Algeria, to name but a few. That’s a problem that those countries allowed to fester all by themselves. White man’s guilt fueled by socialist idiocy? A big part. But how do you account for countries like Sweden or Denmark embracing national cultural suicide? Cratering birth rates and no one to fuel the welfare states is one reason, Germany and its influx of Turks is a prime example. Yet, the result is still catastrophe as has been apparent. Britain still does all it can to sweep the decades-long horror of Muslim rape gangs under the rug. And anyone who dares bring it up gets hit with the Islamophobia charge. In fact Tommy Robinson is in trouble again with the Brits for daring to protest Hamas.

And over here, after nearly three years of a wide open border with millions of military age males from the Islamic world, China and Latin America in country, the fuse is lit.

This is the war that will eventually hit us. And the Junta will use whatever happens as pretext to finally clamp down on all opposition. But, it’s riding a tiger that it thinks it can control. 

Have a good weekend.
