An Open Letter: MK Smotrich

MK Smotrich:

Shalom.
You should present a Bill before the Knesset to amend the Law of Return to
“Collectively Naturalize” all Jews of the Diaspora. Please see my case for doing so in my below forwarded email to Rav Netanyahu.
Also, as to why I oppose a Palestinian state and the return of the Arabs of Palestinian extraction to Eretz Yisrael, see below wherein I posit that they were collectively naturalized and acquired national autonomy in December 1948-49!
The so called Palestinians cannot acquire “national autonomy” in Judea and Samaria because within the meaning of International Law they all-ready have Jordanian citizenship; they are classified as belligerent nationals of Jordan due to their POLITICAL STATUS vis-a-vis the Hashemites, (“Black September” and their militant opposition to Zionism and M’dinat Yisrael). See: Bishop, International Law, Cases and Materials, Second Edition, Little, Brown & Co. 1962 @pp. 338-39.
Unlawful enemy combatant, or Mercenaries status might apply to some of their populous, but whatever the case, they acquired “NATIONAL AUTONOMY” at the Jericho Conference December 1948 within the meaning of international law!
It can be easily argued that the Kingdom of Jordan was established in violation of Treaty Law ( See: <https://johnmhummasti333455225.com/2018/09/05/the-hashemite-kingdom-of-jordan/> and that Treaty Law requires the Hashemites to cede to M’dinat Yisrael the Eastern Territories of Gad, Reuven and Manasseh as per the Faisal-Weissman Agreement/Map!

In closing, When the time comes for a Plenum Vote on Palestinian Statehood in the Knesset, Vote No for Palestinian Statehood and declare Oslo null and void or dead!!! Additionally, See Article 20 Charter, Tzionist Liberation Organization.
Kol tov,

antisemitism, amending the the Israeli Law of Return, the Diaspora and UNGA Resolution 194(11)

B”H

Rabbi (Et. Al.) –

 

My thoughts on the rise of antisemitism, amending the the Israeli Law of Return, the Diaspora and UNGA Resolution 194(11) :

First, “Anti-Semitism has become mainstream – from the halls of Congress to the leader of the opposition in Britain,” Ya’acov Berman, Chabad Activist, NY.

In order to counter “antisemitism” and the [Palestinian] Arab’s claim for a right of return based on UNGA Resolution 194 (11); the State of Israel should amend the Law of Return and collectively naturalize (viz “PATRIATE”) all Jews of the Diaspora (e.g. Orthodox, Conservative and Reform) under the Law of Return – In this way, all Jews would be provided Israeli Consular Services and “enhanced protection services” at Synagogues and Jewish Community Centers would be ensured  and Jews would outnumber, that is, hold a demographic majority over the Arabs even if all Arabs of Palestinian extraction were absorbed by M’dinat Yisrael (the State of Israel)!
Second, UNGA Resolution 194(11) is premised on two conditions: the “return of Palestinians to Eretz Yisrael at the earliest practicable date, & on those wishing to live at peace with their neighbor” – Given the rise in antisemitism in the Arab world it does not appear that the Palestinians wish to live at peace with their Jewish neighbor.
The earliest practicable date at which the Palestinians could have “returned to Eretz Yisrael” is any time before they were “collectively naturalized” by King Abdullah I which is December 13, 1949. See my argument below for why they chose their status in international law; whether or not that decision was a good one or a bad one is not my concern. The Palestinian’s case is one against the Hashemites, not the State of Israel.

According to wikipedia – the total number of people who hold or are eligible for Israeli citizenship under the Law of Return — defined as anyone with at least one Jewish grandparent, and who does not profess any other religion — is estimated at around 23 million, of which 6.6 million were living in Israel as of 2015. Figures for these expanded categories are less precise than for the core Jewish population.

Based on these 2015 figures, there are an estimated 17 million Jews in the Diaspora who are eligible for Israeli citizenship under the Law of Return. This number may not include the number of converts to Judaism or those Anusim (descendants of Jews forced to convert to a non-Jewish religion) who might be eligible under the Law of Return.

King Abdullah I of Jordan collectively naturalized all Arabs of Palestinian extraction.
The subject of collective naturalization is discussed at length in Boyd v. Thayer, 143 U. S. 135, (1892) and many cases cited and illustrations given.

Collective Naturalization can occur by legislation or by treaty.

In the case of Jordan –

On December 13, 1949, King Abdullah of Jordan passed a law amending the Law of Nationality of 1928. Accordingly, Jordanian citizenship was granted to all persons who were holding Palestinian citizenship and were habitually residing in Transjordan or in the “western area that [was] administered by the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan” (i.e., Jerusalem and the West Bank). (Of note is that this law excluded Jews from possessing Jordanian citizenship! But of course the Jews were ethnically cleansed from Jordan and Judea and Samaria by the Hashemites in violation of Article 15 of the Mandate for Palestine and the Anglo-American Treaty of 1924 –

Talk about APARTHEID….)

(On the matter of why the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan was established in violation of Articles 5, 15, and 25 I can make a clear argument on each point but that is not the purpose of this –  Article 15 states, “No person shall be excluded from Palestine on the sole ground of his religious belief.” The ethnic cleansing of Jews from “Palestine” was an official act of antisemitism. No different than that of the ethnic cleansing of the rest of the Jews of the “Middle East Diaspora”…! The Anglo-American Treaty of 1924 while it replicated the Mandate for Palestine, and has expired; the right guaranteed under it to the Jewish People [see Article 80 of the UN Charter] do not expire. This is particularly true since that Treaty became the Supreme Law of the Land (USA) under our Constitutional law system, [enshrining the Mandate for Palestine and the Balfour Declaration into the official PUBLIC policy of the USA] see Howard Grief’s Book: The Legal Foundation and Borders of Israel under International Law (9789657344521).)

On April 11, 1950, parliamentary elections took place in Jordan, covering both the East Bank and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. Following these elections, the Jordanian House of Commons approved the amended law and parliament’s decision concerning the “unification of the two Banks.” Thus, Palestinians who were living in East Jerusalem and the West Bank became Jordanian citizens [by collective naturalization].
The recent de-naturalization of Jordanian citizens of “Palestinian Extraction” by King Hussein and by King Abdullah II has been found to violate the Jordanian Nationality Law. See HRW Report “Stateless Again” – The act of “disengagement” from Judea and Samaria by the Hashemites and declaring those Arabs of Palestinian Extraction (who have been de-naturalized) as Palestinian Citizens can not confer “Palestinian citizenship” on them as Palestine is not a state under the criteria of “Statehood” and must be viewed as a political stratagem designed to demographically destroy the State of Israel! (See Joel Gilbert’s documentary, “Farewell Israel” – Bush, Iran and the Revolt of Islam.) His attempt to cede Judea and Samaria in 1988 to the PLO is null and void as he renounced all claims to “the West Bank” and “what was not his to begin with was not within his power to cede!”
King Hussein explained his decision as one of deference to Palestinian wishes for national autonomy.
This statement flies in the face of the Jericho Conference of December 1948 led by Sheik Muhammad Ali Ja’abari, Mayor of Hebron and the April 1950 Parliamentary Elections wherein the Arabs of Palestinian Extraction exercised political independence and elected King Abdullah as their Sovereign!
Thus, the Palestinians acquired national autonomy when their duly elected representatives voted at the Jericho Conference in December 1948. Within a year all “non-Jewish Palestinians” were all “collectively naturalized” with the consent of the people through their elected Monarch, Abdullah I.
Just because the Hashemites have suspended the rights of the Arabs in the Lower House of Deputies and de-naturalized them should not place the onus on the State of Israel to accommodate them with a “right of return” under UNGA Res. 194(11) as they have exercised “self-determinism” under the Jericho Conference and the April 1950 Parliamentary Elections.
The US Dept. of State 1950 Report states the Jericho Conference determined the political status of the Arabs of “Central” Palestine “which took place as a result of a free expression of the will of the people.” Foreign relations of the United States, 1950. The Near East, South Asia, and Africa Volume V, Page 1096
How many times do the “Palestinians” get to decide their political status? It is evident that they chose their status (as monarchists) and are barred by the doctrine of estoppel in pais from asserting a claim of the “right of return” (to wit, a claim of Palestinian Citizenship) based on inconsistent “political” positions.
Anyways, these are my thoughts on the subject of Collective Naturalization.
Be well, blessed and a success,
Yochanan Ezra ben Avraham

Collective Naturalization: The Law of Return and the Diaspora

The Law of Return and the Diaspora

In order to counter the [Palestinian] Arab’s claim for a right of return based on UNGA Resolution 194 (11); the State of Israel should amend the Law of Return and collectively naturalize (viz PATRIATE) all Jews of the Diaspora (e.g. Orthodox, Conservative and Reform) under the Law of Return – In this way, Jews would outnumber, that is, hold a demographic majority over the Arabs even if all Arabs of Palestinian extraction were absorbed by M’dinat Yisrael (the State of Israel)!

Collective naturalization – when a large group of people becomes citizens at the same time.

According to wikipedia – the total number of people who hold or are eligible for Israeli citizenship under the Law of Return — defined as anyone with at least one Jewish grandparent, and who does not profess any other religion — is estimated at around 23 million, of which 6.6 million were living in Israel as of 2015.

From Heil Hitler – to a Kippah and Tefillin

One night, Yonatan had a dream in which the word ‘Kabbalah’ appeared.

Arutz Sheva Staff 27/12/2018

Watch Yonatan

Until a year and a half ago, Yonatan was still called Lutz. In the past he congratulated his friends with “Heil Hitler.” Now he is a Jew.

Today, Yonatan puts on Tefillin every day. But just a few years ago, under a different name, he would greet his friends by saying “Heil Hitler.”

Like many others, Jonathan was indoctrinated into the extreme right when he was a teenager. When he was 14, he joined a karate group in Berlin which had a neo-Nazi coach.

“It’s not that he sat down and said to himself I have here a child, let’s make him a Nazi. He was just very sure of his way,” Yonatan told Antonia Yamin, Chief Europe Correspondent of Kan 11 News. “In the karate group we had a lot of older people. People who were ten years older than me. We did a lot of things together but we also heard Nazi music in the training camp.”

“Of course we talked about the war.,” he explained. “For example, that it didn’t take much in order to conquer Poland and France. Or that it was a mistake not to attack England, or how the war could be won, or that it was so easy to conquer all of Europe.”

Yonatan described how he was taught “you have to completely destroy the Jewish world domination.”

One night, Yonatan had a dream in which the word ‘Kabbalah’ appeared. When he awoke, he began to research what his dream had been about and discovered the Kabbalah, the Jewish mysticism.

Yonatan began to study Kabbalah, and cut off contact with his old friends. At one point, he even flew to London to work at the local Kabbalah center.

“This of course was a time that helped me to recover. I could leave things behind, leave the city behind. I had new people, there were only positive people, good people who wanted the best for me,who wanted to help me and were patient with me.”

Yonathan said that the light, love and optimism that surrounded him from all sides made him decide that he wanted to be a Jew. A year and a half ago he underwent an Orthodox conversion to Judaism.

In recent weeks Yonatan has decided that he has to complete the change. And in two months he plans to immigrate to Israel. His main hope is that the Israelis will forgive him for his past.

the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan

B”H

Why the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is an illegal administrative arm of the UK and the UN!

The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan was established in violation of Articles 5, 15, and 25 of the Mandate for Palestine. Those Articles provide:

ART. 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.

ART. 15.

The Mandatory shall see that complete freedom of conscience and the free exercise of all forms of worship, subject only to the maintenance of public order and morals, are ensured to all. No discrimination of any kind shall be made between the inhabitants of Palestine on the ground of race, religion or language. No person shall be excluded from Palestine on the sole ground of his religious belief.

The right of each community to maintain its own schools for the education of its own members in its own language, while conforming to such educational requirements of a general nature as the Administration may impose, shall not be denied or impaired.

ART. 25.

In the territories lying between the Jordan and the eastern boundary of Palestine as ultimately determined, the Mandatory shall be entitled, with the consent of the Council of the League of Nations, to postpone or withhold application of such provisions of this mandate as he may consider inapplicable to the existing local conditions, and to make such provision for the administration of the territories as he may consider suitable to those conditions, provided that no action shall be taken which is inconsistent with the provisions of Articles 15, 16 and 18.

POINT IN FACT – The Hashemites are a foreign Power having their origins in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

Thus, the establishment of the Hashemite Emirate, the trans-Jordanian Administration and of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan violates Article 5 of the Mandate for Palestine!

POINT IN FACT – The Hashemite Constitution was established by King Talal who was forced to abdicate the throne due to schizophrenia. That Constitution prohibits Jews from acquisition of Jordanian citizenship in violation of Articles 15 and 25 which stipulates that

      1. Article 15 “No person shall be excluded from Palestine on the sole ground of his religious belief.”
        1. “[…] postponement or withholding of application […] of this mandate […], provided that no action shall be taken which is inconsistent with the provisions of Articles 15, 16 and 18.”
        2. “[…] postponement or withholding of application […] of this mandate […]” can only be construed as a temporary provisio of the Mandate.

That it is apparent – the exclusion of Jews from acquisition of Jordanian Citizenship and their having been ethnically cleansed (judenrein) from Eastern Palestine on account of their being JEWISH is APARTHEID and violates the provision of Articles 15 and 25 of the Mandate for Palestine and thus the provisions of international treaty law!

POINT IN FACT – The Hashemite Kingdom was not recognized as an “Independent” Kingdom [of trans-Jordan] by the League of Nations until 18 April 1946 through the “Treaty of London”, which came into force on 17 June 1946.

POINT IN FACT – The clause “such provision for the administration of” can only be construed as “Administrative” and not a grant of Sovereignty!

POINT IN FACT — The clause “the territories” can only mean Palestine and trans-Jordan, which includes the Faisal-Weissman Agreement map, to wit, Gad, Reuven and Menasheh as the territorial boundaries of Eastern Palestine, to the exclusion of trans-Jordan!

Following the completion of the conquest of Canaan by the Israelite tribes after about 1200 BCE,[1] Joshua allocated the land among the twelve tribes. However, in the case of the Tribes of Gad, Reuben and Menasheh, Moses allocated land to them on the eastern side of the Jordan River and the Dead Sea. (Joshua 13:24-28) The Tribe of Gad was allocated a region to the east of the River Jordan, though the exact location is ambiguous.

These [Eastern Palestinian] territories [of Eretz Yisrael] (the Tribes of Gad, Reuben and Menasheh)  were recognized by Emir Faisal as integral territories of the Kingdom of David in the Faisal-Weissman Agreement of 3 January 1919.

Thus, by Treaty Law (e.g. the Anglo-American Treaty of 1924), force majure and consent of the parties the State of Israel is entitled to territorial integrity as an emerging State ab initio by virtue of Article 5 of the Mandate for Palestine.

postponement or withholding of application […] of this mandate […]” can only be construed as a temporary provisio of the Mandate and expressio unis est exclusio Alterius is Latin: the expression of one thing is the exclusion of the other.

That the rights that the Jewish Community acquired under the Mandate for Palestine did not terminate upon expiration of the Mandate as per Article 80 of the UN Charter. There is a principal in international law that “emerging states acquire the territory of their former administrative district(s)” – As well, Uti possidetis (lit. “as you possess”) is a principle in international law that territory and other property remains with its possessor at the end of a conflict.

POINT IN FACT — In 1988 the Hashemite Kingdom renounced  claims to and relinquished sovereignty and control over Judea and Samaria (the West Bank [of the Jordan]), the aforesaid having ended the hostilities or conflict between the HaShemites and the Judeans!

Thus, from a Jewish perspective there is no longer a conflict between “Dar al Harb and Dar al Islam.”

As well, since the principal of Uti possidetis applies to Judea and Samaria (the West Bank of the Jordan River, as well as to the East Bank Territories of Gad, Reuven and Menasheh) those inhabitants thereof who are hosti humani generis must be removed under the principal of pikuach hanefesh (preserving a life)!

The continued military presence of Hashemite troops within “Eastern Palestine” ( the East Bank Territories of Gad, Reuven and Menasheh) without the consent of the body politic of the Jewish People constitutes an “Illegal and Unlawful Islamic Military Occupation of Tzion,” an integral part of the ancesteral homeland of the Jewish People, in violation of Articles 5, 15 and 25 of the Mandate of Palestine and the Anglo-American Treaty of 1924.

 

 

 

 

Today in History

Jewish History

The first Chassidic aliyah (“ascent” – immigration to the Holy Land), led by Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Vitebsk, Rabbi Abraham of Kalisk and Rabbi Yisroel of Polotzk, reached the Holy Land on Elul 5 of the year 5537 from creation (1777 CE). They were all disciples of the 2nd leader of the Chassidic movement, Rabbi DovBer, the “Maggid of Mezeritch” (who had passed away five years earlier) and colleagues of Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, founder of Chabad. Initially, Rabbi Schneur Zalman was part of the group; but when the caravan reached the city of Moholiev on the Dnester River, Rabbi Menachem Mendel — whom Rabbi Schneur Zalman regarded as his teacher and mentor after the Maggid’s passing — instructed him to remain behind to serve as the leader of the Chassidic community in White Russia and Lithuania. Rabbi Schneur Zalman retained close ties with the settlers in the Land of Israel and labored to raise funds for their support.
