Is it coincidence, or is something really major about to happen?
1. Israel issues a "code 8" to all Israeli citizens worldwide. Apparently this means they are needed in Israel, and are to return immediately. The last code 8 was associated with the 1973 war.
2. Tomorrow (Tuesday) is Israel's independence day. The evil ones are very big on timing attacks for symbolic significance.
3. A new tape showing Osama Bin Laden is broadcast, including statements about how it is time to attack Americans, in America.
4. Arafat supposedly issues a tepid condemnation of terrorism. The statement does not even make it clear that it is from Arafat. The Palestine Authority's official information service issues a statement calling for attacks on Israel, and America, in the clearest terms possible.
5. The U.S. Secretary of State ignores all logic and common sense in a transparently hopeless attempt to make peace. Absolutely no one expects him to succeed, but U.S. prestige is damaged by the attempt.
6. Powell's presence does, however, mean the number 3 person in the Bush Administration is directly on the scene if major trouble starts. It also means we have an extremely high ranking person potentially in the line of fire. If he dies, every Arab (and European) knows we will retaliate.
7. The Pope calls all Cardinals to the Vatican. He has previously stated emphatically that he will NOT step down. If this is not to elect a new Pope, then it is extremely unusual.
8. I'm sure other Freepers are aware of many things I left out, such as the alert issued in India for a possible Al Qaida attack on dams in India.
Is all this merely coincidence, or is Tuesday going to be a very interesting day?
He called all US cardinals only.
Alright, can we stop with the theories and conspiracies please? What's going to happen will happen.
Apparently, there have been less than half as many tornadoes as in an equivalent average period.
Coincidence? I seriously doubt it.
Just to many things going on...
In 4 1/2 hours it will be Tuesday in Israel.
The months of Nissan and Iyar occur between March & June. Shavu'ot corresponds to Pentecost. Apparently their Holocaust Rememberance, Memorial Day, Independence Day, and "Jerusalem Liberation" Day all occur within a 1-month period, that we're right in the middle of right now.
A few minor holidays have been added to the calendar to commemorate various significant events of the 20th century relating to the Holocaust and the modern state of Israel. All of these holidays occur in the period between Passover and Shavu'ot. These holidays are not universally acknowledged, the dates are not entirely agreed upon, and the observances are not yet standardized. Nevertheless, they are worth noting.
Also known as Holocaust Remembrance Day, this holiday occurs on the 27th of Nissan. "Shoah" is the Hebrew word for the Holocaust. This is a memorial day for those who died in the Holocaust. [Editor's Note: The date for Holocaust Martyrs and Heroes Remembrance Day was set as the closest date to the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising immediately after Passover and before Israel Independence Day.]
Israeli Memorial Day, observed on Iyar 4, remembers those who died in the wars that Israel has fought.
Israeli Independence Day, marking the establishment of the modern state of Israel in 1948. It is observed on the 5th of Iyar. According to some views, the restrictions of the Omer period are lifted for this day. A few anti-Zionist Jews observe this day as a day of mourning for the sin of proclaiming the state of Israel without the Messiah.
The 28th day of Iyar commemorates the reunification of the city of Jerusalem in Israeli hands. According to some views, the restrictions of the Omer period are lifted for this day.
I would, but then I might have to take off my tin foil body armor...
Consider it off the list. I posted it before any details were out.
