2 Shevat 5774
I caught this statement in reference to the Obama/Kerry-sponsored peace negotiations in an article that I was reading this morning:
"Most believe that, as has been the case in the past, there is little likelihood of any significant agreement being signed."
If true, then a whole lot of people are going to be in shock, because all the signs are pointing in only one direction. The Oslo Peace & Death Train will finally be pulling into the station in April 2014. The end of the nine-month period designated by the United States for a final agreement will not be extended beyond that deadline.
It looks very likely that the two sides will never come to an accommodation, but this time, the US is fed up and they are determined (and have a plan in place) to force an agreement of their own making in that event. This is it, folks!
I have always believed that Jonathan Pollard would go free right before Edom falls. I never thought Hashem would abandon him there to go down with that ship. I think the leak of information that Kerry was suggesting a Pollard exchange at the final prisoner release in March was a trial balloon. No one can deny that there has been a definite ramp-up of cosmic energy invested in getting Pollard released of late. Just as Egypt collapsed when Bnei Yisrael went free, I firmly believe that we will see the ultimate collapse of the US when Jonathan Pollard finally goes free.
Some economic experts are indicating that a crisis is brewing for the US by the second quarter (Apr - Jun) of 2014. In an interview from October 2013, trends analyst Gerald Celente replied thus to the the following questions:
Interviewer: "What do you predict will happen to the US economy in the near future?"
Celente: "I believe there's going to be a crisis in 2014... I believe by the second quarter of 2014."
Interviewer: "Greater than what we saw in 2008?"
Celente: "Oh, much worse, much worse... It will be a global collapse."
In a May 2013 interview, economist Peter Schiff had the following to say about the situation:
"I think the US economy is now poised for a much bigger collapse. I think that what is coming is a sovereign debt crisis and a currency crisis that will make the financial crisis of '08 look like the proverbial Sunday School picnic. ...I think it will be much worse that what Europe has been going through. ...The biggest threat is to the value of the dollar."
And then there is the interesting connection between Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri and former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and its intersection with current events. Eight years ago on January 4, 2006 (4 Tevet 5766), Ariel Sharon suffered a devastating stroke which left him in a persistent vegetative state. According to some sources, on the preceding Yom Kippur which came just after the horrendous expulsion of Jews from Gush Katif, Rabbi Kaduri allegedly told his students that Mashiach would not come until Ariel Sharon dies. Despite his advanced age and unhealthy physical condition, the former Prime Minister has remained alive until this day, yet unconscious. Rabbi Kaduri himself passed away a short time after Sharon had his stroke, at the age of 104, on January 28, 2006 (29 Tevet 5766). On Rosh Chodesh Shevat 5774, the news broke to the public that Ariel Sharon is in multi-system organ failure and will likely not live out the next few days or even hours.
No matter where you look, no matter what the news or source, all the signs are pointing to the distinct possibility of a deliverance scenario around Pesach 5774. Halevai!
