Monday marks the advent of Tisha B'Av, the Fast of the Ninth Day of the Hebrew month of Av, commemorating the destruction of the First and Second Temples and the subsequent exile of the Jewish people from their homeland. This year marks 1,946 years since the destruction of the Second Temple by Roman soldiers in 70 CE, who razed Jerusalem and murdered millions of Jews in order to solidify their rule over the Land of Israel.
The Ninth of Av concludes a mourning period that commenced three weeks ago, on the Fast of the 17th of Tammuz, which marked the first stages of the occupation and subsequent destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in the Second Temple period, and by the Babylonians in the First Temple. The days are spend in introspection and efforts to increase loving-kindness between Jews, to correct the moral and social failings that are seen as the chief reasons behind G-d's Decision to allow the Romans to exile the Jews.
This year, the period has also been spent in a fight against Hamas; Operation Protective Edge's air campaign preceded the 17th of Tammuz by just a few days, and with Tisha B'Av about to begin, the war in Gaza shows no sign of calming down. By Monday afternoon, Hamas had fired about 80 rockets at Israel, despite and Israeli-declared humanitarian cease-fire.
The Three Weeks period between the 17th of Tammuz and the Ninth of Av is generally considered as an "inauspicious" time, and observant Jews generally avoid court cases, business deals, parties, vacations, and the like. No eating is permitted for the 24-hour period of the fast from sundown Monday to sundown Tuesday,

Incidentally, I read that this razing of Jerusalem and massacre of its inhabitants was the most catastrophic act of genocide in the history of the ancient world-— and that’s saying something, in a milieu in which siege warfare not infrequently ended in genocide.
Add to the list of “bad things” on 9th of Av:
1. Revolt against Moses/God
2. Golden Calf
3. First Temple destroyed by Persians
4. Second Temple destroyed by Roman
5. Destruction of Jersusalem
6. First Crusade
7. Expulsion from England
8. Expulsion from Spain
9. WWI starts with Germany/Russia
10. Final Solution officially began
11. Numerous bombings and attacks
Oh, and Barack Obama gave his introduction speech at the DNC which catapulted him to the USA stage.
That’s why it is called the Great Tribulation.
That’s interesting, the last one on your list, he became widely known almost solely from that appearance at the DNC, I knew about 1-10 already,
I think this seventy year pattern in the interval below isnt a timeline for something to happen soon after, but instead its a signature, a stamp or an insignia. As if to say this is who is in control or who owns it, its like a witness for anyone looking or how a license plate on a car might indicate who the driver is,

Something bad is coming one day and God wont need the worlds nuclear weapons to bring it about, though I also wouldnt discount them being used,
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. 2 Peter 3:10
God is in control
Nice list you got there. I was only aware of about half. Thanks for sharing.
There are many more.
Pretty clear God has a plan.
Also clear he uses a rather old-fashioned calendar, not the Gregorian.
Shouldn't this be in the religion forum?
The First Temple was destroyed by the Babylonians. The Persians gave the Jews permission to return to Israel and begin rebuilding it.
ya probably...my bad.
Got my list from Chabad.org.
No clue how, but this Catholic boy gets their emails.
I think it is because my surname is “Cohn” which is Irish, not Jewish and my first name is pretty Old Testament, too.
