The Mandate — a story of legalized robbery

BY STEVEN SHAMRAK

From the moment of recognizing the right of Jewish people to live on the land of their ancestors the international community, represented by the League of Nations and the United Nations, has made all possible efforts to deny the Jewish people of this right. Led and controlled by the Great Britain and France, those institutions rubber-stamped and authorized the greatest legalized robbery in modern history. Any conceivable shady and disgusting deals were made to prevent the creation of state of Israel on Eretz Israel (Land of Israel)!

The Palestine Mandate. July 24, 1922. http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/History/Palestine_Mandate.html

In July 1922, the League of Nations entrusted the Great Britain with the Palestine Mandate. Recognizing “the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine,” Great Britain was called upon to facilitate the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine — Eretz Israel (Land of Israel).

Preamble. Whereas the Principal Allied Powers have also agreed that the Mandatory should be responsible for putting into effect the declaration originally made on November 2nd, 1917, by the Government of His Britannic Majesty, and adopted by the said Powers, in favor of the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people …

Article 2. The Mandatory shall be responsible for placing the country under such political, administrative and economic conditions as will secure the establishment of the Jewish national home, as laid down in the preamble …

Article 5. The Mandatory shall be responsible for seeing that no Palestine territory shall be ceded or leased to, or in any way placed under the control of the Government of any foreign Power …

Three months later, in order to obtain full control over Suez Canal, Great Britain made a deal with Hashemite Kingdom, Egypt and France. The trans-Jordan (77 percent of the Mandate) was given to the king’s brother in exchange for the Sinai, which was given to Egypt. Golan Heights (5 percent of the Palestinian Mandate) was ceded to the French-controlled Syrian Mandate. This robbery was legalized immediately by the puppet of Great Britain and France, the League of Nations! It was a clear violation of the Article 5 of the Palestinian Mandate. Our “friends” are still quite generous with giving away the Jewish land!

Between 1922 and 1948, Jews were not allowed to move and live in the Trans-Jordan, but Great Britain and the Arab sheiks facilitated the transfer of tens of thousands of Muslims to the Western side of the Palestinian Mandate. They were brought by truckloads from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Egypt to the remaining part of the Mandate. At the same time, the immigration of the Jews was restricted and continuously hindered by Great Britain, the governing authority.

At the end, in it’s “generosity,” the United Nations divided the remaining 18 percent of the Palestinian Mandate into a maze of six ugly triangles. Three of them were given to Jews; Jerusalem was not included!

The Jewish people have been systematically robbed by the International community of their land rights. Our rights and inspirations have being ignored and crushed by the cruelty of International anti-Semitism! Why do Jewish leaders subscribe to the anti-Israel lies of our enemies? Why are Israeli political leaders not demanding the return of the Jewish land? We have all legal, historical, moral and spiritual rights to reclaim the Palestine Mandated lands as Eretz Israel!

Food for Thought

I agree with PLO and Hamas that Jordan is Palestine — the Jewish Palestine. There are 60 Muslim states, including 21 Arab ones, excluding Jordan.

Israel transfers funds to P.A. In the shadow of the decision of the Quartet forum to establish an international mechanism to infuse humanitarian funds into the P.A., Israel has decided to follow with a transfer of NIS 50 million ($11 million). In addition, Defense Minster Amir Peretz has also indicated he may relax restrictions at border crossings between Israel and Gaza. (No wonder every one thinks that Israel is always joking!)

U.N. concerned. Geir Pederson, the U.N. secretary general’s representative in Lebanon, expressed the United Nations’ “concern at the recent increase in violations by Israeli aircraft of Lebanese airspace” and called on Israel to stop all such flights. (The U.N. is not at all concerned about Hezbollah’s hostile actions against Israel!)

Our enemies must pay their bills. Israeli company Dor-Alon had cut its supplies to the P.A. due to millions of dollars of unpaid bills — $28.9 million. (How about unpaid water and electricity bills? They hate and kill us, but we give them a free ride!)

Hamas asked for fighters and money. “We ask all the people in surrounding Arab countries, the Muslim world and everyone who wants to support us to send weapons, money and men,” Hamas’ political leader, Khaled Meshaal, said recently in a speech in Qatar. (IDF also should help Hamas and send some bullets and rockets toward Hamas leadership and its terror-loving thugs!)

Quote of the Week:

“No Jew has the right to yield the rights of the Jewish people in Israel. No Jew has the authority to do so. No Jewish body has the authority to do so. Not even the entire Jewish people alive today have the right to yield any part of Israel.” — David Ben-Gurion

“Stop listening to teaching that contradicts what you know is right” — Proverbs 19:27

“To be or not to be” — the Israel style. Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said recently that no deadline has been set for implementation of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s unilateral withdrawal plan. Justice Minister Haim Ramon said there is. (It is easy to control and deceive the public in the present climate of uncertainty!)

Hundreds of millions spent on guns. Last week military sources revealed that Hamas executed the biggest arms transaction in its history — a $250,000 cash deal with Sinai arms smugglers. (Western countries are looking for “creative” — that means hidden — ways to aid P.A.) The United Nations, U.S., European Union and Russia agreed to provide direct aid to Palestinians, bypassing their Hamas-controlled government. (It did not take long! They have put money into just another pocket of the same suit!)

Hebron eviction just a test. Ehud Olmert’s government has come through its first trial of strength with Jewish settlers after the police forcibly evicted three families and 27 young supporters squatting in the West Bank town of Hebron. The police deployed 700 men and women, backed by a cordon of 1,000 soldiers to keep out settler reinforcements. (Who are the enemies, Ehud?)

Israeli company for $4 billion. American billionaire Warren Buffett of Omaha, Neb., purchased 80 percent of the Iscar Metalworking Companies (IMC), owned by the Wertheimer family, for $4 billion. The deal makes the Wertheimer family the wealthiest in Israel. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert welcomed the purchase. (Strangely, such a huge deal was not scrutinized and immediately was “welcomed.” The deal was announced the day after Olmert’s government officially took the power.)

Comments on Comments:

“The right of existence of the state of Israel must never be questioned,” — German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The existence is not enough! We want all our land back, respect and equality, as granted to any other country.

Canadian court: Jerusalem is not Israel. A Canadian court rejected an appeal by an Israeli-born Toronto Jew who asked that his passport identify his place of birth as “Jerusalem, Israel.” The court claimed that the capital’s status was disputed. (Thank you for making it clear! Israel should immediately withdraw recognition of Ottawa as the capital of Canada and it should do the same for the capitals of all countries that refuse to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. All meetings with government representatives of all countries and the U.N. should take place in Jerusalem.)

Saving the enemies. A Hamas plot to assassinate P.A. Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has been thwarted after he was tipped off by Israeli intelligence. Hamas’ military wing, the Iz a-Din al-Qassem, had planned to kill Abbas at his office in Gaza. At least three Palestinian gunmen were killed in the worst outbreak of Hamas-Fatah infighting last week. (We should let them reduce the number of the Jewish enemies by killing each other.)

When no means yes. Motti Zaken, an adviser on Arab affairs at the Israeli Internal Security Ministry, met recently with Hamas legislators jailed in the Jewish state, despite Israel’s formal boycott of the , Islamic militant group. He discussed with the Hamas terrorists-lawmakers their political views. (When the lies will end? When self-respect will be the norm for Israeli politicians?)
