Rushing Toward Armageddon

5 Tevet 5774

If you had any residual doubts that the 9-month countdown was leading us to "the end," you can lay them to rest now.

U.S., Stepping Up Role, Will Present West Bank Security Proposal to Israel

CHISINAU, Moldova — American officials plan to present the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, with detailed ideas about security arrangements on the West Bank under a possible peace agreement with the Palestinians, senior State Department officials said on Wednesday.

The presentation is to be made to Mr. Netanyahu on Thursday by John R. Allen, the former American commander in Afghanistan and a retired Marine general who serves as an adviser to Secretary of State John Kerry on the Middle East peace talks.

...General Allen’s presentation appears to signify a more active American role, in which the United States is doing more than coaxing the Israelis and the Palestinians to negotiate and is presenting its own ideas.


This is to signify to us that this is a process above nature.  This is a Divine process and will lead to the geulah shleimah. 

And now we see that all the preparations for an attack on Syria were merely a subterfuge to set up Israel for the final assault.

Kerry brings plan integrating West Bank security in planned US-led anti-Al Qaeda regional force

The security plan, which US Secretary of State John Kerry brought with him Thursday, Dec. 5, on his eighth trip for reviving Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, entails deploying a regional international force including US troops along the Jordan Rift Valley and West Bank in a future Palestinian state.

...The secretary of state proposed integrating Israeli and Palestinian special forces units in the planned regional counter-terror force, alongside the American, British, French, Saudi, Jordanian, Egyptian and Qatari units enlisted to the new framework

Since its area of operation would be extensive, ranging from southern Syria to Sinai, including Israel and the potential Palestinian state, the IDF would be able to continue performing its security functions in Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley, as part of the new force. But by the same rule, Palestinian forces would be allowed by mutual consent to serve in parts of Israel in the same multinational framework.
The public groundwork for this plan is already being laid ....

Retribution, just for talking about it, has been swift as both the US and Europe get socked with massive storms...

Storm Xaver pummels Europe, flood surge feared

Storm Xaver has reached northern Europe, threatening the biggest tidal surge in decades and hammering Germany's North Sea coastline. Xaver had already battered northern Britain and killed three people.

Severe cold wave strikes northern U.S., crippling ice storm targets south central

...temperatures...40 to 50 degrees below normal. ...the entirety of 15 states was below freezing. ... a swathe of heavy ice has already developed and will expand northeastward.... begin making preparations now for possible power outages, icy roads, and the likelihood of having to remain at home for several days,”.... a second ice storm may target the Mid-Atlantic Sunday and Sunday night.

  1. The 8th visit on the 8th day of Chanukah bit definitely threw me for a loop. This entire Chanukah I was trying to see signs of the Or ganuz. I guess I was not looking for Lurch from the Addams family with his silly grin boasting that he was going to bring pieces to the Middle East by Pesach.

    I just have to correct you on your geography. The Har Meggido (Armegeddon) Valley is of course the Jezreel Valley which runs from Mt. Gilboa to north of Haifa. The Jordan Valley is the Valley of Yehoshafat (Yoel 4) where the international troops will be stationed.

  2. In short the New T. picked the wrong valley. The Targum Yonatan on the last vision of Moshe Rabbeinu was far more accurate about the location of the international troops when they contend with G-d Himself. It should have been obvious. The nations of the world have no reason to send troops to the Valley of Yezre'el. They recognize that valley as part of Israel. Biqat Yarden is a different story.

  3. I was using the term "Armageddon" in its generic sense, as in the end of the world as we've known it, but, yes, you are right. I've lived in places overlooking both of these valleys - Yokeneam Ilit above the Yizre'el and Mitzpeh Yericho overlooking the Yarden. Do you ever get the feeling of being squashed between the past and the future?

  4. This sounds ominous to me, Dov, but I can't put it into context. Can you?

    "...by the same rule, Palestinian forces would be allowed by mutual consent to serve in parts of Israel in the same multinational framework."

    How do you see that happening?

  5. To me it leads to a takeover by foreign forces of Eretz Yisrael, submission to the Arabs, and the Jews relegated to being subservient to these forces (US and Arab).

    This I believe has been "O's" intent all along. He has put all the pressure on Israel, the little Satan, while changing America's direction to be aligned with Israel's enemies.

    Now part of security arrangements, he wants to include the pales. Sick.

    HaShem should give Bennett and Ariel and Danon the strength to oppose any such plan IY"h

  6. I see ghosts from my upstairs porch. I see King Shaul sitting under a pomegranate tree in Migron with 600 men. To my right, I see Yehonatan climbing a bare-faced cliff from the Wadi below with his armor bearer to attack an entire Philistine garrison on a plateau between the bare faced outcropping and Geva Binyamin off further to the right. I see ghosts....and wonder why so many candidates from Mashiach ben Ephraim have died violent deaths just like Yehonatan. From Yosef Trumpeldour, Avraham Stern, Yoni Netanyahu, Meir Kahane to others along the way, they have all died violent deaths.

    The Ba'al Kerry is a poisonous monster. Every one of his suggestions bespeaks of the venom of Amalek. The younger Netanyahu has twisted and deformed his soul into an unidentifiable wretch. I really pray that you/I are right, and that starting on or before Pesach, we won't have to bear any of this monstrous self-deprecation any longer.

  7. That's odd. My last comment was supposed to have a link to Kerry's plan to get a multinational force into Israel, on the pretext that it's to fight Al Qaeda. It worked fine when I tested it. Anyway, here's the link. (just tested it, and it worked, so if it doesn't get included, I don't know why.)
