The Fuse for WW3 Has Been Lit

8 Iyyar 5779
Day 23 of the Omer

How long can it burn before it explodes?
Rabbi Yitzchak said: (Yalkut Shimoni, Yishayahu 60)

"In the year when the king Moshiach will be revealed, all the kings of the nations of the world are provoking each other. The king of Paras (Iran) is provoking the Arab king (Saudi Arabia) and then the Arab King will turn to Edom (U.S.A.) for advice.

The king of Paras will then go and destroy the world. And all the nations of the world will shout from terror, fall upon their faces in fear and undergo such horrible pains as strong as labor pains.

And the Jewish people will shout from fear and say, "to where do we turn?! To where do we run?!"

And He will say unto them (Hashem), my children, do not be afraid; all that I have done here, I have done only for you. What do you fear? The time for your Redemption has arrived!"
We are now closer to the fulfillment of this "prophecy" than ever before.
Two Saudi tankers with oil for US among 4 ships “sabotaged” in UAE waters off Fujairah

Two of the four cargo ships sabotaged on Sunday, May 12, off Fujairah were oil tankers, said Saudi energy minister Khalid al-Falih on Monday., calling the attack “a threat to the security of global oil supplies.” One was on its way to be loaded with Saudi crude from the port of Ras Tanura for delivery to Saudi Aramco’s customers in the United States,....

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Monday postponed his trip to Russia without explanation and headed straight for Brussels for talks with US NATO allies on the crisis with Iran.

...DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources reported that despite the careful omissions in the official statements, it is obvious that Gulf oil and gas shipping came under attack from a party in the region. The obvious candidate is Iran, whose Revolutionary Guards and their fleet are fully capable of carrying out Tehran’s first major reprisal for US sanctions on its oil exports. From the Saudi statement that the oil on one of the stricken ships attacked in UAE waters was destined for “customers in the United States, ” it may be inferred that Tehran found a way to vent itself on two if not three of its enemies with a single blow. Iranian officials have declared that if Tehran can’t export its oil, neither will anyone else. Washington has so far made no response to this attack. A statement may be expected after Pompeo’s talks in Brussels.
This very scenario was predicted days ago by U.S. sources...
U.S. Warns Iran May Attack Oil Tankers In The Persian Gulf

'Specific, credible' Iran threat against US forces triggered carrier deployment, sources say

"Specific and credible" intelligence that suggested Iranian forces and proxies were targeting US forces in Syria, Iraq and at sea led the Pentagon to recommend a carrier strike group be moved to the region, two US officials tell CNN.

The Pentagon and Central Command asked the White House to announce the military moves to give added heft to the new orders and send a message to Tehran, according to multiple military and US officials.
The strike group's deployment from the Adriatic Sea to the Strait of Hormuz is aimed specifically at deterring any Iranian military actions, a senior military official added. The Strait, a 21-mile wide waterway that separates Iran from other Gulf countries, is the conduit for shipments of about 30 percent of the world's crude oil, making it a strategically crucial passageway for the global economy. (More on this later.)
And Israel foolishly bragged openly that this was based on intel provided by the Mossad...
Report: Mossad intel of looming Iranian attack led US to send in carrier force

Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency reportedly tipped off the United States on an impending Iranian attack on American interests in the Gulf, prompting Washington to deploy an aircraft carrier strike group to the region late Sunday, in a sharp escalation of US President Donald Trump’s pressure campaign.

John Bolton, Trump’s national security adviser who advocated attacking Iran before taking up the post, announced late Sunday that the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group would sail to unspecified waters in the vicinity of Iran.

The deployment is aimed at sending “a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime that any attack on United States interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force,” Bolton said.

...According to Israel’s Channel 13, Israeli officials conveyed information gathered largely by the Mossad on an Iranian plan to attack either a US or US-allied target, details of which were not provided to the network.

The threat was initially raised two weeks ago in the White House, officials told Channel 13, when an Israeli delegation led by National Security Council head Meir Ben-Shabbat huddled with their American counterparts.

“It is still unclear to us what the Iranians are trying to do and how they are planning to do it, but it is clear to us that the Iranian temperature is on the rise as a result of the growing US pressure campaign against them, and they are considering retaliating against US interests in the Gulf,” an official was quoted as saying.
Even before the attack that reportedly occurred yesterday on the Saudi tankers, antisemitic elements on the internet were already spreading the story that Israel and the U.S. were preparing a false-flag attack to provide the basis for the West's war with Iran.  All the way back in 2012, the UK's Jeremy Corbyn was claiming that Israel would perpetrate a false flag action in order to provide a pretext for an attack on Iran.  The only difference now is that it is being made to appear as though Israel is setting up a scenario by which the U.S. will fight the war for her, which is mega times more dangerous for Jews worldwide. But any way you look at it, Jews are going to be blamed for the terrible blow-back that will ultimately result.
...what prompted many to speculate that the attack, or "sabotage" may have been a false flag provocation to escalate a regional conflict, the incident came as the U.S. has warned ships that "Iran or its proxies" could be targeting maritime traffic in the region, and as America deployed an aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers to the Persian Gulf to counter alleged threats from Tehran, while Tehran has called the U.S. military presence “a target” rather than a threat.

The reported sabotage incident also comes after the U.S. Maritime Administration warned Thursday that Iran could target commercial sea traffic.

"Since early May, there is an increased possibility that Iran and/or its regional proxies could take action against U.S. and partner interests, including oil production infrastructure, after recently threatening to close the Strait of Hormuz," the warning read. "Iran or its proxies could respond by targeting commercial vessels, including oil tankers, or U.S. military vessels in the Red Sea, Bab-el-Mandeb Strait, or the Persian Gulf."

So was Iran indeed "targeting commercial vessels", or was someone pretending to be Iran and targeting commercial vessels, and if so did the operation fail to achieve its goal, resulting in the prompt denial that anything happened, even though it was Iran who originally reported that seven tankers were involved in the explosions?

While there is no definitive answer, later on Sunday, a senior Iranian lawmaker and head of parliament’s national security committee, Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, said that reports of “explosions” near Fujairah port showed the “the security of the south of the Persian Gulf is like glass.” (Source)
(See the comments there.)

Most people have assumed that such a confrontation would go nuclear and this is why "all the nations of the world will shout from terror, fall upon their faces in fear and undergo such horrible pains as strong as labor pains."  Also, this has been described as the fulfillment of the word of the GR"A that the Third World War would only last for 12 mins.  But, it would actually take ICBMs longer than 12 mins to reach the U.S.

On the other hand, how long would it take the stock market to collapse catastrophically???  At computer speed!

Remember that quote from above saying that the Strait of Hormuz is "a strategically crucial passageway for the global economy"?

Well, the global economy is already balanced on a feather...

Pessimists are predicting a global crash in 2020. You can see why
It won't stand a chance against the hurricane that would churn up in a shooting war between the U.S. and Iran. And if you think antisemitism is bad now...
"...the Jewish people will shout from fear and say, "to where do we turn?! To where do we run?!"
And HKB"H will say: "...What do you fear? The time for your Redemption has arrived!"

"...the regime could target landmarks such as the Burj Khalifa in Dubai — the world’s tallest building ‒ in order to trigger a financial meltdown across the region."


  1. Ramaddan also corresponds to Iyyar this year and next year, and I think the next year after that as well.

    1. We hope and pray that by this time next year, there will be no more memory of a thing called Ramadan. ;-)

  2. The Golan is next after Iran hit 3 Gulf oil targets, say Rev Guards associates

    ...DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources disclose that last week’s missile attack on Saudi Arabia’s main western oil terminal of Yanbu, which went unreported by the US or the Saudis, was in fact the opening shot of a series carried over this week to two more Iranian attacks on oil infrastructure – the sabotage of four oil tankers outside Fujairah port and the explosive drone attack on two Saudi pumping stations on its east-west pipeline. Washington and Riyadh have avoided explicitly naming Iran as the culprit or even linking the three episodes. Two IRGC mouthpieces have now admitted who was responsible and furthermore revealed the order of the “blows” on Tehran’s agenda. Israel should therefore be prepared for the Golan to be next in line.

    I saw two low-flying transport-type planes flying southwest to northeast over the border and into Jordanian airspace around 10:30-11:00 am. US troops being ferried from Israel to a forward operating base?

  3. I heard something about four ships acquiring holes in them, one was Norwegian, two were U. S. and the other from somewhere else I don't remember. They simply said that further information was coming in, and then it never did..

    1. Not U.S. Two were Saudi.

      Four ships 'sabotaged' in the Gulf of Oman amid tensions

      The incident reportedly took place near Fujairah port, just outside the Strait of Hormuz, but caused no casualties.

      Saudi Arabia confirmed that two Saudi oil tankers sustained "significant damage".

      Another vessel was Norwegian-registered, whilst the fourth was reportedly UAE-flagged.

      Few details have been released about the incident,....

      Wonder why no pics of the damage to the Saudi tankers.
