According to an alarming teaser-of-an-article posted on WorldNetDaily last Friday, Al Qaeda may be set to deliver an "American Hiroshima" this month during the Islamic holy time of Ramadan. If you want to find out about this unprecedented threat to U.S. national security and the lives of millions of Americans, you need only pay Joe Farah $9.95 per month or $99 for a full year subscription to his G2 Intelligence Bulletin. Personally I think that if intelligence regarding such a threat does indeed exist, one should freely make the details available rather than seek to make a buck off it. But I guess this is where I and Joe Farah differ.
10/16 UPDATE: It looks like
Joe Farah and Paul Williams were aware of what I presented in this article:
Risk high for Ramadan mega-terror: Many bin Laden followers see him as 'Mahdi' (or at least they have since seen my article). (10/23 - More reported in Messianic madness of nuclear Osama.) Also see, Ramadan and nuke terror: Is 'American Hiroshima' set for this month?, which is not my work.
Unfortunately, there is reason to give some credence to the notion that a threat of nuclear terrorism, or at least the most unprecedented wave of al Qaeda terror since 9/11, looms for October 2005. Here's why.
I started as a student of cycles of history. In particularly, I am knowledgeable about long-term historical cycles like the 60-year Kondratieff economic wave of prosperity and depression and Elliott Waves of even longer potential historical relevance. (Of course, it is hard to gather much information on the Elliott Wave Principle because it has been monopolized by Robert Prechter for his own personal financial benefit). According to the long-waves of history, we are currently at the peak of Western Civilization....an Elliott Wave "Grand Supercycle" top.
This peak is reflected by the DJIA trading above the psychologically critical 10,000 mark over the past half decade:
I've long maintained that a decisive reversal below Dow 10,000 will likely mark the onset of a Grand Supercycle collapse that, given the incredible historical scale of these cycles, probably entails the collapse of Western civilization.
The long running question in the minds of long-term cyclical analysts like myself is: "What will precipitate the collapse of Western civilization?"
While Robert Prechter and the like are focused on the threat of an economic collapse caused by gross financial excesses and imbalances in the U.S. and global economy, I think they are missing the big picture. The DJIA trading above the 10,000 mark, a bubble in real estate prices, unprecedented levels of consumer, business and government indebtedness....these are all symptomatic of "irrational exuberance" stemming from a maximum of global consumption. In other words, man's self-confidence is at an all-time high as the world is immersed in an ultimate level of collective greed. The upset of the West's manic mood and irrationally optimistic outlook will involve financial and economic collapse, but this will occur AS PART OF negative historical shocks that reverse the mood of society.
What sort of shocks could occur? We likely received an important hint after the DJIA broke below Dow 10,000 on September 6th of 2001. After that, 9/11 occurred along with 'al Qaeda' terrorist attacks that brought down the Twin Towers and seriously damaged the Pentagon, the ultimate symbols of American capitalism and imperialism in the world, respectively (at least as the West's erstwhile enemies in the East see it). The hard truth of the matter is that there are aggressive enemies of Western society and their successes, like 9/11, is our unexpected undoing. The negative surprise that a Grand Supercycle collapse in stock prices and Western expectations entails may come in the form of successful blows against the free world by freedom's foes.
As is explained in my August 24th Stock Market Crash Alert, there is reason to believe that the next major leg down in the unfolding Grand Supercycle collapse of Western Civilization may occur this month in some facet. Why?
As strange as this seems this prognostication is based upon the fact that a solar eclipse will occur on October 3rd followed by a lunar eclipse on October 17th. Historically, stock market crashes tend to occur around the time of eclipses and most often during the month of October. A simple for instance of this occurred in 1987. The stock market topped out in August of that year and then started to reverse with panic selling developing into a crash after a solar/lunar eclipse pair into October 7th.
As it turns out, the eclipses this October may be of particular significance with regard to potential historical shocks in the form of terrorist attacks and/or war because of what America's enemies believe.
The solar eclipse tomorrow also entails the new moon after which the Islamic holy month of Ramadan begins. According to Yossef Bodansky, who authored the book Bin Laden: The Man Who Declared War on America years before 9/11, al Qaeda is planning a "Great Ramadan Offensive" designed to create a "fateful confrontation" with the U.S. and Israeli forces in the Middle East. In a report to the U.S. Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare, Bodansky warned that "concrete preparations for the consolidation of Islamist-jihadist springboards against the heart and lair of the Great Satan are being completed -- for Western Europe in the Balkans, for Russian and Eastern Europe in Chechnya, and for the United States in the tri-border area in Latin America." Bodansky has long warned that al Qaeda plans to cause mass casualties on an unprecedented scale, most likely using weapons of mass destruction.
OSAMA BIN LADEN & THE MAHDI
That al Qaeda might be planning some sort of unprecedented Ramadan offensive is further suggested by Osama bin Laden's known messianic complex.
Many believe that Osama bin Laden aspires to be a prophetic "Mahdi" of Islam. The Mahdi (guided one) in Islamic eschatology is a prophecy about the redeemer of Islam who will change the world into a perfect society before Yaum al-Qiyamah, literally meaning the "Day of Resurrection" (the end times) (source: Wikipedia). This Mahdi is supposed to usher in a new 'Islamic caliphate', i.e., theocratic empire, that encompasses the entire Muslim world and beyond. Islamic extremists around the world are excitedly anticipating the arrival of the prophetic Mahdi to lead them in Jihad to a victory over the infidels.
It is believed that a solar and lunar eclipse during Ramadan that is visible in the Moslem world will mark the time when the prophesized Islamic Mahdi will become known:
|"According to the Ahmaddiya movement, one of the signs which will indicate the emergence of al-Mahdi will be that in the month of Ramadan prior to his emergence two eclipses will occur, one of the sun and one of the moon, both being visible from the Middle East and Arabia. These signs are said to have been visible right after the claim of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad to be the Promised Messiah and Mahdi, and are supposed to happen again during Ramadan AH 1426 (roughly October 2005). These claims are disputed by many non-Ahmadi Muslims." - Wikipedia|
The solar and lunar eclipse this month marking Ramadan are visible in the Moslem world and seem to fit the Islamic Mahdi prophecy.
If, indeed, Osama bin Laden aspires to be the Mahdi, then he might be planning to use this year's month of Ramadan, marked by solar and lunar eclipses witnessed in the Islamic world, to carry out attacks of prophetic scale, and this might mean terrorism with weapons of mass destruction. But does al Qaeda have such potent weaponry?
BIOTERROR AND/OR AN 'AMERICAN HIROSHIMA'?
The work of Ross Getman highlights the potential for al Qaeda to engage in bioterrorism, particularly using weaponized Anthrax like occurred with the 2001 Anthrax mailings right after 9/11. It is noteworthy how the letters sent in the Anthrax mailings noted, "This is next":
Given that know one has ever been caught for the Anthrax mailings, it is reasonable to presume the letters were sent by who was implied: al Qaeda. Thus, at the least one should be concerned that bin Laden's terrorist network is armed for bioterror.
(Above image taken from a known al Qaeda discussion forum.The image above the nuclear explosion is of a suitcase nuke.)
Even more disturbing is the warning of Paul Williams, author
Revenge: THE NEXT 9/11 : What the Media and the Government Haven't Told You
and The Al Qaeda Connection: International Terrorism, Organized Crime, And the Coming Apocalypse, who is convinced that al Qaeda has operational nuclear weapons and is planning an "American Hiroshima". From pages 193 to 194 of his new book, we read the following conclusions:
(For a thorough examination of Paul Williams' views, please see J.R. Nyquist's "Does Al Qaeda Have Nuclear Weapons?", Part 1 & Part 2.)
All in all, if al Qaeda has weaponized Anthrax and/or operational nukes and Osama bin Laden deems this month's Ramadan of prophetic significance for his leading a worldwide Jihad, then it seems there is grave danger in the days and/or weeks ahead for America and her allies.
Interestingly, the Islamic prophetic importance attached to October 2005 coincides with a similar sort of significance accorded by some Christians.
A quick Google of "14,000 days" reveals a series of web sites dedicated to arguments about how Rosh Hoshanah 2005, the Jewish New Year that will occur Tuesday, coincides with a date 14,000 days after Israel took control of Jerusalem on June 7th, 1967 during the Six Days Arab/Israeli War.
This October 04, 2005, Rosh Hashana, is EXACTLY 14,000 days from June 07, 1967.
The significance of June 07, 1967 is this:
Luke 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
According to this verse; the Jews would be dispersed through out the world and Jerusalem would be trodden, or trampled, by the gentiles, or nations, until "the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled". Exactly 14,000 days from Jesus' proclamation of the destruction of Jerusalem, it happened in AD 70, as Jerusalem was surrounded by Titus Vespasian. The Jews were also dispersed throughout the world, just as Jesus had predicted. It is interesting that the Jews have always maintained their identity regardless of what nation they were in. For example: Russian Jews, Romanian Jews, Polish Jews, German Jews, Ethiopian Jews, etc... YHWH, the actual name of GOD, promised that He would bring His people back. This happened in May 14, 1948 when Israel became a nation, born overnight. Jews have been returning to their homeland. Jerusalem was still in gentile hands, though, until June 07, 1967 after the Six day war. YHWH brought a miraculous victory for His people. The Jews were outnumbered and out gunned significantly, but were victorious through GOD. Jerusalem is no longer under gentile control. Luke 21:31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Luke 21:32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. I and many others believe that "This generation" is the generation of June 07, 1967. Take 14,000 days from this date, a biblical generation, and you come to October 04, 2005. This day is also a very significant feast, Rosh Hashana. (reference)
What does this mean? I'm not certain. But it suggests that the period we are entering is of significance to Christian Messianism as well as Islamic Mahdism.
WHAT I DO KNOW
Should something unthinkable occur in the days and/or weeks ahead, it is important that people recognize things are not what they appear to be. More specifically, there is reason to believe the world has been grossly deceived up to now and the upset of misled popular expectations is what the coming Grand Supercycle collapse is all about. Russia's ruling elite, in collusion with Moslem extremist forces, have long since made plans for global dominance via a surprise third world war against the U.S. and her allies.
Back in 1991, as I was studying long-wave cycles and contemplating the Grand Supercycle "crash", God gave me a brief glimpse into the future. What I foresaw was a chemical SCUD missile attack on Israel that would be followed by a global nuclear war. I've since concluded that this could unfold only because the underlying strategic intentions of Russia and the Communist East never changed with the breakup of the Soviet Union and the seeming demise of the Russian nuclear threat. In fact, Moscow has been pursuing a long-term strategy to mislead the Western powers into a false sense of security for the purpose of a nuclear surprise attack that would destroy Western civilization and open the way for Russian domination of the world.
Moscow's intentions are shaped by a perverse historical messianic complex according to which the former Communist ruling elite believe it is their destiny to counter evil Yid-Masonic Zionist forces vying for world control by unleashing an apocalyptic third world war. Part of their long-term plan has involved gaining control of a seemingly third party terrorist network, i.e., al Qaeda, in order to utilize it as a proxy in order to execute acts of "Grey Terror" during the opening phase a an all-out war with the West.
Accordingly, should al Qaeda terrorism occur involving weapons of mass destruction, it is critical that people recognize this has been intentionally facilitated by Moscow as part of a plan for global military conquest.
What's more, if Russia's plans for global domination remain unchecked, the entire world will find itself under the tyranny of a false kingdom of god headed by no one less than the antichrist himself.
(Gorbachev) is frank, though hardly contrite, about the failures of judgement that led him to promote to senior positions the very men who would plot to overthrow him in 1991.
"How do you explain Judas -- right there next to Jesus Christ?" he asks. "How do you explain that? And Christ did not recognise him for what he was. You could say that's a metaphor."
