The Politics of Corruption

Mahmoud Abbas has been “president” of the Palestinian Authority for 16 years. And yes, you’re right; I mean the Holocaust denier and funder of terrorists.

When the goblin known as Yasser Arafat was removed from this earth in 2004, it seemed logical that his righthand man would take over. That was the last time the Palestinians saw anything resembling an election.

(And yes, those elections are rigged, too.)

Abbas’s problem/rival is of course Hamas, the terrorist group formed in 1987. Hamas is sort of Mr. Hyde to the PA/PLO’s Henry Jekyll. One is an open brute, the other wears suits and sleeps in the Lincoln bedroom.

Notice this interesting background, courtesy of the Jerusalem Post:

“In the past few years, Abbas has come under pressure from Palestinians and various international parties, especially the European Union, to set a date for general elections, notwithstanding the ongoing dispute between Fatah and Hamas.

“Rebuffing the pressure, Abbas constantly cited Hamas’s refusal to cede control of the Gaza Strip as the main reason the Palestinians cannot hold free elections.

“In 2019, Abbas, during a speech at the United Nations General Assembly, again pledged to call for general elections upon his return to Ramallah.

“A few days later, however, he found another excuse to avoid fulfilling his promise. This time, he blamed Israel for obstructing the proposed elections by refusing to allow the vote to take place in Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem. Abbas’s allegation came despite the fact that he had never set a date for the elections or even made a formal request to Israel regarding the participation of Jerusalem Arabs in the vote.”

For his part, Abbas found himself in the exact right moment in history, when the Western powers fully lost their minds by pulling Arafat out of hiding in a cave in Algiers and giving him legitimacy. In 1990, the PLO was almost literally hanging from the edge of a cliff. Bankrupt and isolated, the killers were rescued in one of those historic head-scratchers. Just as America’s cabal has installed the corrupt Biden, to reverse all the policies that Trump installed to help our working class, President Bush 41, Tony Blair and other European elites set the stage for a quarter-century of murder of Jews in Israel, by propping-up Arafat and making him into a “statesman.” Meanwhile the Palestinian people suffer in poverty.

It made no moral sense. Still, they did it. Morally bankrupt people make insanely stupid decisions on a daily basis. And the rest of us suffer.

The Israelis will now suffer more because Biden will dust-off Oslo, and the corrupt, 85-year-old Abbas will be given free reign again to meddle and make mischief.

He shares another trait with the puppet Biden. Just as Lunch Bucket Joe is a craven career grifter, Abbas has amassed quite a fortune.

Stealing the West and his own people blind for decades, Abbas has a palace in Ramallah.

(If you need a laugh, Wikipedia identifies Abbas as the president of the “State of Palestine.” More upside-down world. There has never been and there is not now a “State of Palestine.” Oh well.)

He is worth at least $100 million.

On a drive along the Jordan Valley a few years ago, I took note of the palatial homes of PLO elites, alongside the shacks of their people. This is a big part of Abbas’s legacy.

Now at this moment of history, onto the stage walks a corrupt terrorist leader and his new counterpart in Washington.

God help us.

Muslim Cleric: Israel Belongs to the Jews!

In a world gone mad, there is still a semblance of sanity. Now brace yourself: a Pakistani Muslim cleric has declared that Israel belongs…to the Jews.

You read that right. At the same time four Arab countries have normalized relations between themselves and Israel, a Muslim leader in a very, very hostile country says that it’s clear his holy book is a sort of title deed to the land of Israel, for the Jews, not Muslims.

This is extraordinary, as the grotesque and unholy “Biden administration” evidently prepares to make good on their stolen election and begin to unravel President Trump’s accomplishments. Those accomplishments of course include the most pro-Israel policy in modern times.

It is supremely ironic that as pressure increases on Israel from one direction, it lessens in another. The relationships being created for Israel now will be vitally important in the years ahead. That includes individual epiphanies in faraway places like Iraq.

Remember, in the past decades, Muslim leaders in the Middle East have marginalized the Jews and sought to erase their history. Yasser Arafat repeatedly said the Temple Mount had nothing to do with Jews, ever. He and others in the PLO and other countries claimed the Jews had no linkage with the land. Arafat famously said he was descended from the Canaanites, and since they had occupied the land before the Kingdom of Israel, the land belonged to Arafat’s people! Never mind the fact that he was really an Egyptian and had helped the mythical narrative of the Palestinian nation.

According to Frontpage magazine:

Pakistani political and religious leader Maulana Muhammad Khan Sherani announced Saturday, Dec. 20, at a conference, that he supports the normalization of his country with Israel, according to a report by British-Pakistani writer Noor Dahri.

“This is an international issue, I support recognition of Israel,” Sherani said. “Educated Muslims need to understand that the Quran and history prove to us that the Land of Israel belongs only to the Jews. King David built the house of God in Jerusalem for the Israelis and not for the Palestinians.”

Amazing! Sherani acknowledges the historical reality of David. And, in a nod to the growing annoyance with the Palestinians by their Arab brothers, he said the land was never meant for the Palestinian Arabs. In fact, says Sherani, “We should recognize Israel.”

We can hope that all this is sincere. Maybe Arab states are modernizing and realizing normal relations benefit everyone. For example, at the same time Arab states are warming up to Israel, the Jewish state is helping them. Israel is helping Sudan with agriculture, including its vaunted drip irrigation, desalination, and other things that will blossom the parched African nation.

There is also talk that Sherani’s religious announcement will give political cover to Pakistan’s political leaders. Could we handle it if Pakistan normalized relations with Israel?

I could. It would also help ease the pain of the gang of criminals in Washington holding the reigns of power.
