With Abbas Just Wait and It Will Come

Beyond the Cusp

President Trump has confidence that his great abilities in business to have conquered, as well as written, “The Art of the Deal” and believes he has gained an opening towards an Arab-Israeli deal. President Trump has mentioned that Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas has agreed to begin negotiations with Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu with no preconditions. President Trump has the particular pleasure of not knowing anything about the modus operandi (MO) of the PA and Muslims when negotiating with infidel. The very first thing President Trump is about to learn is, it is not only permissible for a Muslim to lie to an infidel when negotiating, it is a religious requirement. While PA leader Mahmoud Abbas may have promised to start negotiation without preconditions may be a fresh start for President Trump, we here at BTC have been down this path with Abbas before and with Arafat before…

Rumor UNESCO to Vote to Eliminate Israel

Beyond the Cusp

UNESCO may next consider making the claim that the Jews are a nationless people and merely a religious choice without any connection to any lands anywhere and having just magically come into being in the Diaspora. This would place the United Nations and all its member states in a position where their recognition of Israel would now be in dispute. The Palestinians claim that Palestine is the indigenous peoples with rightful claims to all lands between Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea and the Jewish people with no rights to fight such claims. This would most certainly lead to suits brought by the Palestinians and any friends they have in the Arab World, the Greater Muslim World or any of their plethora of friends in Europe taking to the World Courts demands that all treaties setting up Israel as the Jewish State be rendered null and void followed by the…

The Media that Cried Wolf Too Many Times

Beyond the Cusp

The latest Trumpism is from the Washington Post, which unfortunately makes one suspect from the start, is that President Trump divulged intelligence secrets with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov. The White House reply was that no intelligence gathering information or military plans, which were not already public knowledge or sensitive data not already known to both parties, were revealed. Who to believe and who has the right to final arbiter in this case? Well, allow us some explanation about so-called secret information and discussions including such with foreign dignitaries. First item is that many secret and higher classifications are determined by the Executive Branch and as such, their classifications can change. So, the basic fact is that secret information, the absolute lowest level right there alongside sensitive information, the latter oft times more damaging than actual secret information, can be reclassified even on the fly if the situation calls for such…

Our Letter for the Upcoming Presidential Middle East Visit

Beyond the Cusp

Dear President Trump,

We are honored and glad you are visiting the Middle East so early in your Presidency and thought we would try to catch you up on a few items which have occurred immediately before your visit this past week which your staff may not have had the time or even seen in the news and thought these important for your making fair assessments. We are not even going to make aspersions about the loose relations between Mahmoud Abbas and the reality. Instead, we will like to tell you about an example of the fruit of the education for peace which students of Bir Zeit University put on display in the recent student elections. The article in which we read about this was written by Stephen M. Flatow titled, Palestinian Voters Display the “Culture of Peace”.

First, we would like to give the good news. Dean of…

Hezballah Threats Growing in Intensity

Beyond the Cusp

When threats of Hezballah invading Israel start being the next great idea used by Hassan Nasrallah to rally the troops and spark excitement in the Lebanese Shiite public replacing his usual anti-Christian rhetoric and claims of preparedness to repel and Israeli attack which may be imminent as the Jews nefarious ways can never be predicted, one can only expect the worst. That such news would be reported by, of all places, Yahoo News then either things are a whole lot worse than one thinks or Yahoo was going for broke trying to sell the story. The problem is Nasrallah has been speaking big much more than usual of late and that never bodes well. Part of the reason for his big chest pounding rhetoric could largely be due to things not going as well as hoped for on the Syrian front and Hezballah has been losing more men than they…

Miss Janis Joplin May Have Got It Right

Beyond the Cusp

Janis Joplin often talked about feelings and the state of the world before each song. I think it was on her Greatest Hits Album where she first stated an interesting philosophical idea that “I don’t understand how come you’re gone, man. I don’t understand why half the world is still crying, man, when the other half of the world is still crying too, man, I can’t get it together. If you got a cat for one day, man I mean, if you, say, say, if you want a cat for 365 days, right you ain’t got him for 365 days, you got him for one day, man. well I tell you that one-day man, better be your life, man. because, you know, you can say, oh man, you can cry about the other 364, man, but you’re gonna lose that one day, man, and that’s all you’ve got. You gotta…

When Lies Bury the Truth of Promises Given

Beyond the Cusp

Should Europe along with potentially Canada, Australia and/or the United States decide to go down the multicultural route to suicide, please do not try to demand the same of Israel and definitely please do not attempt to drag us down with you. Stop pretending that there were no promises made after World War I and that the San Remo Conference, the Treaty of Sèvres, the Treaty of Lausanne, the League of Nations affirmed Mandate System and Article 80 of the United Nations Charter by which the United Nations assumed the responsibility to enforce the League of Nations Mandate Systems was simply some myth. Many of your leaders signed these documents and now you pretend they never existed and that there were no guarantees given the Zionist Jews who even agreed to let seventy-eight percent of the British Mandate be used for an Arab state which today is…
