Gives Bigger Lift to Israel's Right Than to Those in Power
By ISABEL KERSHNER
JERUSALEM — With two weeks to go before the
Israeli elections, the politicians who seem to have benefited the most
from the military offensive against Hamas in Gaza are those who
were not involved in planning or carrying out the war.
That is not
because Israelis have regrets or have
become faint-hearted about the casualties and destruction in Gaza.
the contrary, there appears to have been a shift further to the right,
reflecting a feeling among many voters that an even tougher approach
may now be required.
Recent polls indicate that Likud, Benjamin Netanyahu’s
right-wing opposition party, has retained and even increased its lead.
The other party that appears to have gained the most ground is the
nationalist Yisrael Beiteinu, led by Avigdor Lieberman.
A hawkish legislator and former minister,
Mr. Lieberman pulled his party out of the governing coalition a year
ago when Israel began
statehood with the Palestinian leadership in the West Bank, which is
viewed as more moderate and pragmatic than Hamas.
final twist, the police on Sunday detained seven associates of Mr.
Lieberman for questioning, including his daughter, who has since been
released to house arrest, as part of a longstanding investigation into
his finances. The police suspect Mr. Lieberman of money laundering,
fraud and breach of trust, although he has never been charged.

Lieberman seems to be a supporter of

In reference to the date
that miguel de Portugal has given for "The End" - 2832 AD - I came upon
a certain letter.
It is part of the Letter to Henry II (1). In it,
Nostradamus states the years between the creation of the world and the
birth of Jesus as being 4173 and four months. With the birth of
Jesus about 4 BC, 7000 years would bring us to around 2832 AD. Is
this mere coincidence? I remember the saying that with God there is no
such thing as coincidence. I felt that I should tell you of this
similarity, even if I am wrong. (2)

And since, Sire, in this address
I am presenting these predictions almost confusedly - both in respect
of when each may occur and in the respect of the amount of time which
shall elapse until the events themselves - in a way that conforms
little, if at all, with the above: [and since], whether by means
astronomical or by other means (namely the Holy Scriptures, which can
in no wise fail), if I wished to set a definite term [i.e. date] to
each quatrain, this could be done: yet this would not be pleasing to
all, still less [that I should] interpret them, [at least] until, Sire,
your Majesty should have granted me full power to do so, lest any
occasion be given to the slanderers to savage me.
However, counting the years from
the creation of the world until the birth of Noah, there passed 1506
years; and from the birth of Noah to the completion of the construction
of the Ark in the run-up to the world-flood there passed 600 years
(whether the data were solar or lunar or a mixture of the two - though
I maintain that the Holy Scriptures hold them to be solar). And at the
end of these six (hundred) years, Noah entered the Ark in order to be
saved from the flood: and this flood was world-wide, and lasted a year
and two months. And from the end of the flood to the birth of Abraham
there passed a total of 295 years. And from the birth of Abraham until
the birth of Isaac there passed 100 years.
And from Isaac to Jacob, sixty
years, [and] from the time when he entered Egypt until he left it again
there elapsed 130 years. And from the time when the latter entered
Egypt until the exodus therefrom there elapsed 430 years. And from the
exodus from Egypt to the building of the Temple, which Solomon
constructed in the fourth year of his reign, there passed four hundred
and eighty (or fourscore) years. And from the building of the Temple to
Jesus Christ, according to the calculation of the sacred scribes, there
passed 490 years. And so it is that, according to this
calculations that I have carried out in conjunction with the sacred
scriptures, this amounts [in all] to some 4173 years and four months,
more or less. [Which would make the theoretical terminal date of the
then-conventional 7000 years of earth history 2828 AD!]

Watching the Midnight Mass from St. Patrick's
Cathedral, NY, I was horrified by listening to Cardinal Egan's sermon.
began by referencing the present economic crisis in the US. Then he
launched into a personal tale, relating to the Great Depression. His
Grandfather had related tales of "heroes" of that sad era to him when
Egan was a seminarian. Those who went out of their way to help the
(N.B.: Egan was born in 1932 in Oak Park, IL, then and now and
upscale suburb of Chicago. While he lived through it as a boy, it
obviously didn't affect him personally due to location, family, and his
second hand, vicarious knowledge of it. )
When he was about to be ordained in Rome in 1957, he was had a custom
made by a Roman chalice maker (N.B.:
in today's money, as much as
$15K!). His Grandfather asked Egan to have a small gold cross
Grandfather's emblem of a "fraternal Catholic group" (N.B.: Knights of Malta,
from the look of it), incorporated into the new chalice.
Egan chose a "poor chalice maker who was being forced out of his
shop by high rents" to make it. This pleased his Grandfather greatly,
as it "reminded him of the 'heroes of the Depression", and made Egan
himself feel that he had helped the poor. He used the chalice at this
mass, and the camera took close up shots of it as he spoke.
My (the sender's) Comment:
May God pity this poor fool! In his
blindness, Egan seems to think this was "charity". How many poor Roman
families could have been fed with the money wasted on the "ego
statement" (chalice)? This Administrator of Religion has, in truth, not
known or served the poor.
Since a Chalice maker is a goldsmith/jeweler...... how many poor
ones do you know? This would be funny, were it not so spiritually sad.
A Blessed Nativity of the Lord to you!

We have received from one of
our Special List Member additional - and not documentary - information
regarding the Yellowstone super volcano issue.
The page from the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program -
In that report we see many
of the minor earthquakes that continue to rock the Yellowstone area
which do not show up - as they should - in the general listing page
nor at the US specific one
We have noticed that on the Yellowstone specific page
all Yellowstone earthquakes
"miraculously" stopped right after midnight from January 2 to January
3. Just as if someone had noticed that the information was out.
Three hours after this post, the above referred page was "miraculously"
updated showing thirteen more Yellowstone tremors. Maybe Samantha
Stevens, main character of the
iconic US TV program Bewitched
now works for the USGS
Earthquake Hazards Program....
Second: A youtube report by geologist
Christopher C. Sanders posted January 1, 2009 and where he states:
"I am advising all State officials around Yellowstone
National Park for a potential State of Emergency. In the last
week over 252 earthquakes have been observed by the USGS. We have
a 3D view on the movement of magma rising underground. We have
all of the pre warning signs of a major eruption from a super
volcano. - I want everyone to leave Yellowstone National Park and
for 200 miles around the volcano caldera."

Regarding the youtube report - Do notice that Mr. Sanders had made the
report about a year ago and he spliced in it a new portion with the
current information and warning (he now sports a light beard). This is not act act of
deception by Mr. Sanders - on the contrary - he just used his initial
report as a backdrop for the newer data.

As we witness the seemingly endless warfare between Israel and its Arab
neighbors, we must not forget what is the root source of this "bad
blood" between the ethnic offspring of a same father - Abraham and two
women: Sarah, the lawful wife of Abraham and Hagar, the servant slave
The entire story, which is covered in Genesis ch. 11 through Genesis
ch. 17 and beyond can be summarized thus: Since she was barren, Sarah convinced
Abraham to "help God" in fulfilling the Divine prophecy that Abraham
was to have an offspring numerous as the stars.
Thus Abraham's entanglement with Hagar and the birth of Ishmael the
father of the Arab people. What did God say about Ishmael? He shall be a wild man: his hand will be
against all men, and
all men's hands against him: and he shall pitch his tents over against
all his brethren.
Moral of the story:
God does not need our help - outside the norm - to fulfill His
prophecies. If God had wanted for Abraham to have another wife instead
of Sarah, He would have said so. Abraham and Sarah only had to do their
part: Attempt to conceive under normal circumstances and then, the
proverbial ball would have been squarely on God's proverbial court.
(2) The greater the
importance of the function of the individual chosen by God, the greater
the negative consequences when said individual decides to "get
creative" and adjust the Divine instructions.
Another glaring example was the Vatican "getting creative" with what
Mary clearly and unequivocally instructed them to do through Fatima (1). As you well know, the
rise of communism and nazism, World War II and the almost (2) never ending post
World War II conflicts - plus the Grand Finale (3) - are the result of such
recipe for peace
(2) "Almost" because they will end. The Will of
God will always be fulfilled
- how painful or painless it is depends of man's actions.

After I stumbled across the
term: Great Winter Retailing Festival, I thought it ties in wonderfully
with what you have said regarding Festivus. (1)
The only commercial TV broadcast which seriously makes the attempt to
cast shame on the spirit of greed and commercialism with which
Christmas is celebrated is the simple animated special: A Charlie Brown
Christmas. (1965). It made the point of getting back to the true
meaning of Christmas. (2)
"Network executives were not at all keen
on several aspects of the show, forcing Schultz and Melendez to wage
some serious battles to preserve their vision. The executives did not
want to have Linus reciting the story of the birth of Christ from the
Gospel of Luke ; the network orthodoxy of the time assumed that
viewers would not want to sit through passages of the King James
Version of the Bible. A story reported on the Whoopi Goldberg-hosted
version of the making of the program (3) that Charles Schulz was adamant about
keeping this scene in, remarking that "If we don't tell the true
meaning of Christmas, who will?"
This quote from Schultz is pregnant with meaning.........
Perhaps I should just let Linus do the talking (3)
