As President Obama gets ready to visit the Summit Of The Americas, my thoughts about the Middle East travel to Latin America as well.

Regardless of what does or does not happen between Israel and an Iran which has repeatedly stated that it intends to destroy the Jewish State, the future of Arab-Israeli politics really does largely depend on Hugo.

Let me explain…

I called it years ago in my “It’s So Bad It’s Good" and much earlier still in “Watch Out For The Set Up"

While the State Department--with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice at the helm--really wasn’t given much choice other than to express disappointment with the results of the Arabs’ 2007 Saudi-hosted Mecca Accord (which brought Hamas and Fatah’s Abbas closer together but rejected anything to do with actually arriving at peace with a viable Israel),I predicted that the Foggy Folks’ position would very shortly revert back to normalcy--squeezing the Jews, no matter what.

Sure enough, the ink had barely dried on that good cop/bad cop Arab accord when State resurrected the earlier alleged Saudi Peace (of the grave) Plan--the one the Obama Administration has now largely embraced.

In case you forgot, here’s a summary of that plan:

Israel, surrounded by almost two dozen Arab states carved out of over six million square miles of territory (which Arabs conquered mostly from non-Arab peoples), first agrees to return to its 1949 armistice lines--not borders. Those lines were where the fighting stopped after six Arab states invaded a re-born Israel in 1948. They were never meant to be permanent borders, as a reading of any of the United Nations' representatives' writings at the time clearly show.

Judea and Samaria--aka, the "West Bank"--must once again become Judenrein, and so forth.

Among other things, those Auschwitz Lines made Israel an average of a mere nine to fifteen miles wide at its strategic waist, where most of its population


and infrastructure are located. Most people travel farther than that just to go to the mall or to work. And recall that the U. N. stood by and watched as Israel was attacked. It only got involved after Israel turned the tide to limit Arab losses. This became the pattern that would often be repeated.

After the Arabs, led by Egypt's Nasser, blockaded Israel at the Straits of Tiran in 1967 (a casus belli ),amassed 100,000 troops on Israel’s borders, ordered the U.N. peacekeeping force out of Sinai, daily bragged that the extermination of Israel was near (I still have the newspaper reports and pictures of this from May ‘67), and shelled Israel from what was then the Jordanian half of Jerusalem, the Six Day War soon erupted.

When the dust settled, the architects of U.N. Security Council Resolution 242 (Eugene Rostow, Lord Caradon, etc.) saw to it that the final draft of the resolution did not ask Israel to return to those fragile '49 armistice lines.

In fact, 242 calls for the creation of secure and recognized borders to replace those lines, and any withdrawal at all was to come in the context of real peace agreements (not phony “hudna” ceasefires) between Israel and its assorted Arab would-be executioners. President Reagan and other American officials confirmed this later on as well.

The State Department, however, has been another story…those same folks who fought President Truman and rejected Israel’s rebirth in the first place in 1948.

The Foggy Folks have constantly tried their best to undermine Israel’s attempt to undo the travesty of those ‘49 armistice lines. A reading of my Resolution To Kill The Resolution provides much detail about this. Besides being a chapter in my heavily-documented book http://q4j-middle-east.com, here's an updated version of that analysis as well http://www.ekurd.net/mismas/articles/misc2010/1/article26.htm

Indeed, just a few weeks after Secretary Rice muttered some sanity over the Mecca Accords, she embraced the Wahhabi “peace” plan--and couldn’t have done this unless her boss agreed.

Mind you that besides calling for Israel to return to its submicroscopic existence, before allegedly gaining Arab “recognition” of its right to exist (would you like to know where Arabs can stick that recognition?), the Jew of the Nations must also consent to being inundated by millions of alleged refugees raised on genocidal Jew-hatred for over a half century.

Okay, stop…time for a reality check, one that cannot be repeated too often:

When the United Nations Relief Works Agency--UNRWA--was set up to assist Arab refugees (after the Arabs invaded a nascent Israel in 1948 and their attempt backfired), the very word refugee had to be redefined to assist those people.

So many Arabs were recent arrivals themselves into the Palestinian Mandate that UNRWA had to adjust the very definition of "refugee" from its prior meaning of persons normally and traditionally resident to those who lived in the Mandate for a minimum of only two years prior to 1948.

Get the picture about many, if not most, of those allegedly native Arab "aborigines?"

Now also recall that for every Arab forced to flee the fighting that they themselves started (after all, how dare Jews want in one tiny, resurrected state what Arabs demand for themselves in some two dozen others), a Jewish refugee was forced to flee "Arab"/Muslim lands into Israel and elsewhere...but with no UNRWA set up to assist them. The latter account for at least half of Israel’s Jewish population.

There are over 100,000 Iranian Jews living in the United States today (besides those in Israel), with a similar number of Syrian Jewish refugees here as well. Counting as the Arabs do, this includes those original refugees' descendants.

But, hold onto your seats…Guess what I just found out?

There's breaking news--and just in time for Obama's visit to Latin America!

Amid all of these developments regarding the Middle East, I bet you missed the latest coming out of Venezuela.

President Hugo Chavez has evidently tired of his spat with Washington and has offered to bury the hatchet. He too will visit the Summit of the Americas to make this official announcement.

Here’s a preview of Hugo's Peace Plan:

First, in order to show good faith, the United States must pay billions of dollars in reparations for its capitalist exploitation over the past centuries of Latin


America--its people and its resources. This has sired deep resentment among the Latin Street.

Washington must rescind its Monroe Doctrine. After all, what right does one sovereign nation have to tell another sovereign nation whom it can or can’t have relations with and what the extent of those relations must be? If Venezuela wants to invite Iran and Hizbullah into Latin America so they can set up bases and such there closer to The Big Satan, then so be it.

The United States must next agree to give back California, Texas, New Mexico, and the entire southwest…lands conquered and forcibly Gringoized from Latin Americans.

Finally, to promote better relations, Washington must agree to an unlimited return of millions of the descendants of those Latins who were displaced during America’s three thousand mile drive for its Manifest Destiny. Any border fences or walls must also be taken down as well to help facilitate this. (Find Israel on a world globe without a magnifying glass--I dare you.)

If Washington agrees to all of the above, President Hugo Chavez will then recognize America’s right to exist in its new constricted borders…despite the obvious problem involving native Americans. Since Latin America has that same "Indian" problem south of the border, El Presidente has decided not to make a point of this.

For the sake of justice and peace for our time, Chamberlain--er, Obama--must consent to Chavez’s offer, or it will be seen as being merely the imperialist, exploitative, capitalist, expansionist, war-mongering nation that many other nations already accuse it of being.

So…how do ya like them apples ?

Well, I guess you know by now that Chavez didn’t really come up with this plan. Consider it my post-April Fool's day shtick.

But think about this a moment….and then ponder what Secretary Rice and her boss and now Secretary Clinton and her boss have been setting Israel up for--and getting nasty when Jews don't cave in and prostrate themselves low enough.

The only real difference between Hugo's plan and this analogy is that Jews have lived continuously--despite ups and downs--in the land of Israel for well over 3,000 years. Their presence and wars for freedom and independence are well documented by the Romans, and Egyptian pharaohs and Moabite kings are among the other ancients who speak of them in Israel itself--let alone elsewhere in the region. Can President Bush say that about American roots for his ranch in Texas? How about Bush's fellow Texan gadzillionaire buddy, the blatant anti-Semite (let alone anti-Zionist), former Secretary of State, James (milk the Arab petro-dollar teat, master of "Jew Boys, and F ' the Jews, they don't vote for us anyway ) Baker III?

Arabs conquered scores of millions of non-Arab Kurds, Berbers, Copts, Assyrians, Jews, black Africans, etc. and so forth and then called the latters’ lands “purely Arab patrimony.” And the American State Department has repeatedly supported such viewing the world through Arab eyes only garbage.

As I like to frequently point out, a roadmap for thirty-five million truly stateless non-Arab Kurds or a like number of native, non-Arab North African Imazighen ("Berbers") is still not on the State Department's agenda, while it insists on creating a 22nd state for Arabs via grossly endangering Israel.

Keep in mind that, together with Egypt's subjugated non-Arab Copts and the Sudan's ( both north and south) still victimized non-Arab black Africans, the non-Arab Berbers are North Africa's true aborigines (scores of millions of them)--not their genocidal Arab slave masters and conquerors.

An Amazigh Tuareg state declared itself independent on April 6th in what the jihadis refer to as merely part of their "purely Arab patrimony" in North Africa. Has anyone heard about this yet, or the centuries-old continuing plight of the Berber peoples?

Azawad, northeast of Mali, would become the world's first Amazigh state--as opposed to almost two dozen for Arabs.

Forgive me. I've digressed. Back to those alleged peace plans…

Rice's former position--and Clinton and Obama's current one--is that the Saudi Peace (of the grave) Plan will be a “basis for negotiations.”

Remember the commotion not long ago when the President recently tried to twist Israel's Netanyahu's arm over the settlement issue and the building freeze? That has everything to do with whether or not Israel will be forced back to its pre-'67, '49 armistice line existence or not--one of the main demands of the Saudi plan.

So, what’s to negotiate? Let's see…

Okay, Arabs, we’ll meet you half way. We’ll 'only' agree to have half as many alleged millions of jihadis as you insist upon shoved down our throats…and that after we’re forced to become a nine to fifteen mile wide sub-rump state again.

Thanks--but no thanks….

As a number of us have been pointing out, the stench of Munich ‘38 is indeed once again in the air... peace for our time--with Israel instead of the Czechs as the sacrificial offering.

This is the time for Israel to hold its ground and insist upon peace terms, with enemies dedicated to its destruction, that Americans themselves would expect. Poll after poll show that most Americans do indeed understand this-- to the State Department and the current White House's dismay.

Hamas and the alleged "moderate" Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah both deny Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state…no matter what their assorted whitewashers say.

Whatever happens on the Iranian front, that still remains a side issue--as potentially devastating to Israel as an Arabized, jihadi nuclear Iran is.

Israel's Jews shouldn’t be squeezed by their “friends” into suicide the way the Czechs were. Keep in mind that the world soon found itself at war anyway.


The Nazis wanted far more than the Sudetenland and Czechoslovakia--and take a good look at what's happening in Europe today if you believe that the Arabs' centuries-old wars of the Dar ul-Islam vs. the Dar al Harb stop at the gates of Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. The Jews are simply on the front lines--the Little Satan vs. the American Big Satan.

Substitute for the Sudetenland and Czechoslovakia, Judea and Samaria (the “West Bank”) and Israel today…and then ask yourselves if delivering the Jews on a silver platter will cure our own jihadist ills.

The Saudi peace of the grave plan must be stuffed in the same place where that "recognition" we discussed earlier must go.

Israel's leaders must offer Arabs peace for peace, recognition for recognition, and negotiate a compromise over disputed--not “purely Arab” territories.

There is much that Arabs and Jews can gain from each other in a peaceful Middle East.

But the Arabs still have not come up with an honest plan for this to occur. Even their so-called "moderates" still speak of all negotiations with Jews as being simply a Trojan Horse, part of their openly-admitted destruction-in-stages plans for Israel. Does any of this really need to be further explained?

While it may be easier to turn the screws on six million Israeli Jews than on hundreds of millions of rejectionist Arabs and their other Muslim supporters, is this really something that America wants to do?

If not, the time is now to let the powers that be know this.

There is a crucial American election coming up just months away. For Israel, this may be one of the most important ever. Folks who really care need to think long and hard about this.

President Obama recently told the Russian leader, he'll have more "flexibility" after he gets his last presidential election behind him.

For sure...

And if you thought Israel had problems getting the recognition, compromises, and such that UNSC Resolution 242 promised it before (as when Netanyahu was left sitting alone in the White House while Obama took off to dine with family because the Prime Minister refused to abandon 242's crucial promise of territorial compromise),
www.ekurd.net just wait until after November 2012--when the current occupant of the White House won't have to worry about reelection any more. For my non-American readers, he's not allowed to run again.

Finally, while you're at it, it wouldn’t hurt to also think about Hugo's “peace plan” once again when considering Israel’s on-going fight for survival.
