Skip to comments.Fifth quake in six days rattles north
Posted on 10/22/2013 12:24:46 PM PDT by Errant
A small earthquake shook the Sea of Galilee area on Tuesday morning, the fifth such tremor in less than a week.
The quake, measuring 3.3 on the Richter scale, caused no reported damage or injuries.
On Sunday, two minor earthquakes, both measuring 3.6 in intensity, were reported in the north, which followed similar quakes on Saturday and Thursday. No injuries have been reported, although some buildings in Tiberias were lightly damaged by the tremors.
Last Sunday, a 6.4-magnitude quake, centered in the Mediterranean Sea near Crete, was felt in Athens, Egypt and Israel.
And in September, an early-morning 3.5-magnitude quake was felt in the northern Dead Sea area, including in Jerusalem.
In response to the string of temblors, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu convened a special cabinet meeting Monday to discuss the states earthquake preparedness, and, on Sunday, the Home Front Command and emergency services representatives held a meeting to discuss emergency procedures in the case of a more major earthquake.
However, seismologist Dov Lakovsky of the Geophysical Institute of Israel told The Times of Israel Sunday that there was no cause for alarm and that the quakes were just a bit stronger than usual. Such tremors, he said, happen all the time.
According to the GIIs statistics, seven earthquakes strong enough to be felt have rattled Israel in 2013.
Israel is situated along the Syrian-African rift, a tear in the earths crust running the length of the border separating Israel and Jordan, and is part of the Great Rift Valley, which extends from northern Syria to Mozambique.
Israels last major earthquake rattled the region in 1927 a 6.2-magnitude tremor that killed 500 and injured another 700.
An earthquake in 1837 left as many as 5,000 people dead. According to a 2010 Haaretz report, major earthquakes strike Israel once every 80 years or so.
The country is currently in the midst of a major program of upgrading buildings to withstand earthquakes.
.. and the Philippines are still feeling after shocks a week later.
Seismologists tell reporters that the epicenter of the quakes were on the Bush’s fault!
I’ve been watching the western pacific. Lots of activity taking place in that entire area.
I’ve heard a lot of prophetic references to Israel coming into a MAJOR oil discovery following a major quake in the end times... something about some sort of shift that causes much of the oil in Arabic controlled areas to shift or move to areas under Israel’s control and ownership.
Or maybe Israel’s leaders or having thoughts of dividing up Jerusalem?
Well, they have discovered massive fields already. Some reports say Israel may become the new SA in the Middle East.
The geology of Holy Land oil might be something unique to the region, and so geology that finds oil in other locales might not work. Leave it to Israelis to suss it out, however. Some strains of Christian theology notwithstanding, God has not stopped being bent on blessing the Jewish people even while they yet fail to believe. Because that’s how God is. When you are chosen you are chosen. Sooner or later what’s obvious to Christian gentiles will be obvious to all Jews, and they’ll accept God’s blessing explicitly.
According to reported today SA is quite pissed at the USSA for something Obama did or did not do to Israel or Egypt or Afghanistan or Mississippi or someone, maybe Bush. Who knows but they are po'd.
Ha...didnt we talk about that fault last year.
Sure did! Lot’s good info on that thread, IIRC.
Linked to Gog's fault...
Ezekiel 38:18 And it will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel, says the Lord God, that My fury will show in My face. 19 For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken: Surely in that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel, 20 so that the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
Reverse engineer it, 'come against the Land' = Palestinian State
Gog from Gog
GeOrGe from GeOrGe
GeOrGe's weapons are already on Israeli soil...
America has several secret military bases in different areas of the occupied Palestinian territory (Israel) at which it houses ammunition, smart bombs, missiles and other military armaments, Basij News, the official outlet of the Iranian Basij forces, reported Tuesday, quoting an Iranian diplomat in an interview with the Arabian media outlet Al Moheet.

Buckle up, cuz the ride just gets wilder!
Just read an article about oarfish washing up in S CA. There was a reference to a Japanese belief that beaching oarfish are precursers to earthquakes.
I’m wondering about that too. Might a release of methane, hydrogen sulfide, SO2, or even hot water at depth cause their eventual death either directly, or by driving them to shallower water and away from their food source?
He’s just warming up (no pun intended). ;)
>>> Well, they have discovered massive fields already.
Yeah... I thought those were shale deposits though.
Anyway, (and I am not sure about this on prophecy) It was my understanding that the shift would basically dry up the Arab oil fields and enrich the Israeli ones... all centering around a single geological event.
nothing here. hmm
