Mass Defections from Iraq, Saddam Attacks King Abdullah II of Jordan, Possible Destruction of Iraq by US and Allies

King Abdullah of Jordan The destruction of Babylon Saddam Hussein, the "king of Babylon"

NEW PREDICTION: 12/22/01 -- I suppose this reinforces the above Quatrain 9.74 of a vicious attack on Baghdad during the Althorp season. However, there is a more specific vector for this event: August 2002. It is admittedly a weak vector, but given current events in the Middle East, it is entirely plausible.

Nevertheless, Babylon's (Iraq's) days are numbered and her destruction is certain. This is not merely "based" on my base 7 numerology system -- it is founded in one of the most authoritative prophecies known to Western civilisation: the Book of Jeremiah in Holy Scripture. Knowing the dating may be difficult, but that the time is at hand cannot be doubted. For my part, if base 7 numerology can be reliable, I see only two likely vectors for this to occur in the near term: August 2002 or January/February 2005.

Of course this and a few other of my predictions are bound to confuse because they appear to contradict one another. This is not an appearance -- contradiction occurs because there is more than one possible outcome in several cases. It is possible, for example, that Iraq may indeed launch a ruthless air attack against Israel as I have predicted, rendering her weak and nearly defenseless, but not succeed in conquering her. As long as the United States and Nato are in Israel's corner, a true conquest seems unlikely.

Indeed, according to the prophet Jeremiah, Hazar (N. Israel) will actually be destroyed by the King of Babylon (Iraq), but the nation of Israel will not perish and Iraq will pay a terrible price for this action.

This prediction deals with inner turmoil inside of Iraq, possibly by the Kurds and Shiites, or within the ranks of Saddam's elite inner circle. Mass defections may take place, even by such individuals as high up as Tariq Aziz.

Baghdad will blame Jordan and King Abdullah II for the defections and inside fighting because many who defect will flee to Jordan. Saddam will accuse Abdullah of harbouring "terrorists" against the Iraqi state. Perhaps, too, Jordan will be blamed for conspiring with Israel and the West against Damascus and Syria which will be partly destroyed by nuclear fire. An "agreement" between Saddam and King Abdullah II of Jordan will be broken. Jordanian neutrality or action in the great Middle East war will come to an end. Iraqi forces will make a sudden move to invade Jordan -- and will meet with a crushing defeat by an international coalition. This final operation against Iraq will be unlike all previous ones, because it will result in the total nuclear destruction of Baghdad and the entire central portion of the country (Babylon):

 

Jeremiah 50:39-44; 51:28-49 --

It shall be no more inhabited for ever; neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation. As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorroh and the neighbor cities thereof, saith the LORD: so shall no man abide there, neither shall any son of man dwell therein. Behold, a people shall come from the north, and a great nation, and many kings shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth. They shall hold the bow and the lance: they are cruel and will not show mercy: their voice shall roar like the sea ... the king of Babylon [Iraq] hath heard the report of them, and his hands waxed feeble; anguish took hold of him, and pangs as of a woman in travail. Behold, he shall come up like a lion from the swelling of Jordan unto the habitation of the strong; but I [the God of Israel] will make them suddenly run away from her...

Prepare against her the nations, with the kings of the Medes, the captains thereof, and all the rulers thereof, and all the land of his dominion. And the land shall tremble and sorrow: for every purpose of the LORD shall be performed against Babylon, to make the land of Babylon a desolation without an inhabitant. The mighty men of Babylon have foreborn to fight, they have remained in their holds: their might hath failed...

Babylon shall become a heaps, a dwellingplace for dragons, an astonishment, and an hissing, without an inhabitant...The sea is come up upon Babylon: she is covered with the multitude of the waves thereof. Her cities are a desolation, a dry land, and a wilderness; a land wherein no man dwelleth, neither doth any son of man pass thereby...As Babylon hath caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon shall fall the slain of the earth...

 

In short, there are two scenarios for the destruction of Iraq falling along the lines of what is prophesied by Jeremiah:

1) Annihilation during the peak of a major Middle East war.

2) A later retribution during the final stages of World War III after the war in Europe has ended in 2005 or 2006. For this model see Years 2005 - 2012.

 

'Shock and awe' campaign starts -- Coalition forces bombard Baghdad, northern cities in massive air attack

March 21, 2003
5:13 p.m. Eastern

2003 WorldNetDaily.com

Firestorm shakes Iraqi citiesThe sensational "shock and awe" air campaign of the war on Iraq is underway after a series of massive explosions rocked Baghdad amid Iraqi anti-aircraft fire.

Television footage showed dozens of blasts, fireballs eating up buildings and dark mushroom clouds blotting out the skyline of the Iraqi capital. Several fires raged across the city afterwards, including at the presidential palace compound.

MSNBC correspondent Peter Arnett estimated 25 buildings were demolished in a span of ten minutes. "The main presidential building was blown away," he said.

Explosions have also been reported in the northern cities of Mosul and Kirkuk, where Republican Guard headquarters have been hit. Air Force Gen. Richard B. Myers, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said several hundred military targets will be hit throughout Iraq "over the coming hours."

Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld held a press conference after the start of the intense bombardment. "Coalition military operations are focused on achieving several specific objectives," he said, then described the first as "end[ing] the regime of Saddam Hussein by striking with force on a scope and scale that makes clear to Iraqis that he and his regime are finished."

"Our goal is to defend the American people and to eliminate Iraq's weapons of mass destrution and to liberate the Iraqi people," he said.

Earlier, senior Defense officials confirmed today is "A Day," or Aerial Day, in which coalition forces may drop as many as 3,000 precision-guided bombs.

The first explosion was felt in Baghdad at approximately noon Eastern Time. Minutes prior, 320 Tomahawk cruise missiles were fired from ships in the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea. At 8 a.m. Eastern Time, eight American B-52 bombers took off from Fairford Airbase in Britain, signaling the massive airstrikes would soon be launched. The eight joined six other B-52s that left Fairford yesterday for pre-positioning closer to Iraq.

According to Fox, these heavy, high-altitude bombers can carry 12 Joint Direct Attack Munitions, or JDAMs, eight Conventional Air Launched Cruise Missiles, or CALCMs, inside and another 12 non-precision bombs.

A video grab shows an explosion in Baghdad that marked the beginning of the shock and awe campaignThe "mother of all bombs" may be among those dropped, reports Fox News. As WorldNetDaily reported, the 21,000-pound MOAB, or Massive Ordnance Air Burst, bomb was successfully live-tested at Eglin Air Force Base in the Florida panhandle two weeks ago. The force of its blast rivals that of a small nuclear bomb and can knock over tanks and kill any people within several hundred meters of the detonation.

At the press conference, the Defense secretary took the offensive and rejected comparisons made by television commentators between this air campaign and more famous bombing campaigns of World War II. He said the "overwhelming majority" of the weapons being used have a degree of precision that no one even dreamt of in a prior conflict. He added that the "humanity" that goes into the targeting also renders the comparison "inaccurate."

Pressing toward Baghdad

Meanwhile, ground forces have pushed close to 100 miles inside iraq, from the north, south and west. Coalition troops moved in on Basra, a strategic city that's key to Iraq's oil production, with orders to prevent sabotage at the refinery.

Iraqi television reports coalition forces hit a military site in Basra and another target in Akashat, a town about 300 miles west of Baghdad near the Syrian border.

Marines encountered armed resistance as they seized the strategic southern Iraqi port town of Umm Qasr. "Umm Qasr has been overwhelmed by the U.S. Marines and now is in coalition hands," Admiral Sir Michael Boyce, chief of the UK General Staff, told reporters at a news conference in London.

Special Forces have seized an airfield in western Iraq and secured border positions in several key locations.

 

COMMENT (3/20/03): The purpose of all the news links that have appeared here and in the section above over the course of the last year was to illustrate and to warn that a major, "end game", US-led war against Iraq would take place in August 2002. It finally has, although seven months later than projected using my base 7 system. Although the machinary of war is now obviously in place, the grand scale assault has yet to happen -- the so-called "shock and awe" air, sea, and land campaign. When it does, I will likely replace the above news story with another to reflect that a massive campaign has begun.

Technically, this prediction is only PARTIALLY FULFILLED since it calls for the total destruction of central Iraq and an Iraqi attack against Jordan (mass defections may be taking place as specified, but it is early yet). However, I no longer believe this is necessarily the time for the biblical destruction of Babylon. All the same, if the "shock and awe" campaign is shocking enough and the magnitude of Iraqi retaliation results in an "enviro-Armageddon" inside of Iraq, something Nostradamus seems to predict, that will be close enough. Also keep a watch on other war-related and terrorist-related predictions I made for 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004 -- the time may be at hand for their fulfillments now or over the coming weeks and months.

 

NOTES: The war in Iraq, originally anticipated on the Global Holocaust 2002 dream vision to occur in February/March 2002 or, as shown here, August 2002, did not actually happen until March 2003. Even so, since such a war in Iraq happening in 2002 was anticipated in late 2000, being off by seven months on the second vector is not too bad. The broader sense I gave in my 2001 page was that World War III would begin in the Middle East in August/September 2001, and it would appear that I was right. That projection was made back in June 1998.

The magnitude of the war in Iraq, however, was never what I expected it would be during the "official" stage. The destruction of Babylon (central Iraq) never happened, but still will one day according to the Bible prophet Jeremiah. Jordan's involvement was largely a covert special operations role. However, although not invaded by Iraqi troops during the "official" war President Bush declared had ended on May 1, we are beginning to see retaliations being carried out against Jordan during the current "guerrilla war." We mut realise that the war in Iraq is not over -- far from it. It may escalate again, in fact. So, a military invasion of Jordan (this includes the recent terrorist bombing) and possible use of US nuclear weapons is still on the board before this year ends.

Coup in Greece, Turkey and Greece At War, The Defeat of
Turkey and Greece by Iran, Fall of Cyprus

 

Greco-Turkish naval battleNEW PREDICTION: 7/31/01 -- As if there won't be enough war and troubles in 2002, Turkey and Greece may compound the problem. Anti-American and anti-Nato protests in Athens will lead to a large-scale massacre, quickly followed by the overthrow of the country's democratic government. Turkey, still at war with Iran and Iraq, will find itself also at war with Greece. This may bring about the disintegration of Nato and a strengthening of European Union forces.

In August 2002, Turkish troops will invade Greece and Cyprus. Within days, they will take over half of Cyprus, engaging in ethnic cleansing of the Greek population. Hundreds of thousands of Cypriot and Greek civilians will die as an impotent United Nations condemns Turkey along with the Middle East pariahs that it will also be battling.

At first glance, this scenario seems a bit insane. Why would Turkey and Greece, both endangered by foreign armies, enter into a conflict with each other? One possible reason may be that Greece will side with Macedonia and Yugoslavia against Turkey at some point during the course of the Balkan war.

Quatrain 2.52

For several nights the earth will tremble:
In the spring, two efforts in succession:
Corinth [Greece] and Ephesus [Turkey]
swim in two seas,
War stirred up by two valiant in combat.

Quatrain 12.36

Ferocious assault on Cyprus is prepared,
A tear in my eye, your ruin draws near:
Turkish fleet, such great loss to the Moors,
Two different conflicts, great devastation by the rock [of Gibralter].

By December 2002, if the West is unable to bring an end to war in the Balkans and the Middle East by August, the island of Cyprus will finally fall to missile strikes by Iraqi forces stationed in Israel and Lebanon.

These events will coincide with a nuclear terrorist strike, possibly by Libya, against the island of Gibralter.

Moammar Gadhafi Declares War on NATO -- Major Naval Battle in the Gulf of Sidra

 

Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi Naval battle in the Gulf of Sidra

 

NEW PREDICTION: 7/17/00 -- The Tripoli-Baghdad-Belgrade-Moscow axis already exists. It will be in 2002 that rogue Arab states will become involved in an ongoing Balkans war -- either on their own or at the behest of Russia. While Libyan leader Moamar Gadhafi is currently playing the role of "peacemaker" on the African continent, he is reportedly continuing to stockpile the largest underground chemical weapons facility in the world and is also developing InterContinental Ballistic Missiles. Incidentally, he is also the only leader of a rogue state who has publicly stated that he would use nuclear-armed ICBMs against New York City.

In August 2002, Gadhafi will attack the island of Malta with chemical weapons, provoking a naval response from the United States. A horrendous battle will take place in the Gulf of Sidra. The USS Nimitz may become involved in the altercation. The Nimitz is slated to rejoin the US fleet in mid-2001.

Nostradamus describes a Libyan attack on Malta in several quatrains, here is one:

 

Quatrain 1.9

From the Orient will come the African heart
To trouble the Adriatic and the heirs of Romulus [Italy],
Accompanied by the Libyan fleet,
The Maltese temples and nearby islands evacuated.

 

As we will discover below, Gadhafi is one distraction the Allies can ill afford to waste precious military resources over. Choosing to get bogged down in a Mediterranean quagmire will allow nations under the leadership of Russia and Iran to gain a foothold in Central and Western Europe by August 2003 -- threatening the very existence of France, Britain, and the United States.

For a possible vision by Conor regarding this event, open a Dream Window.

Efforts to Resolve Conflicts in the Middle East, the Balkans, and Elsewhere Will Fail -- Wars Will Escalate to WW3

 

Chemical warfare in the BalkansUPDATE (3/16/02): Will Arab forces actually be in the Balkans by summer 2002? Technically, they are already there since many reports have circulated that the Al Qaeda have joined up with ethnic Bosnian and Albanian terrorist groups planning new offensives in the spring of 2002. But it will be at this time that Nato forces will engage them in what will become a protracted conflict that will drag on into summer 2003.

Obviously, something very major will happen during the critical August/September 2002 vector. What will that be?

I now believe that this will mark an ambitious attempt to bring a decisive conclusion to major wars in the Middle East, the Balkans, and elsewhere by Nato and the United States. Unfortunately, this action will fail and instead of a resolution, all wars will widen. Thus, August/September 2002 will mark a great escalation in warfare on a number of fronts.

This may even be the point in time where the so-called "war on terror" evolves into what will come to be known as "World War III."

Nostradamus' own projection is quite close to my own:

Quatrain 9.55

The horrible war that in the occident is prepared,
The year ensuing will come the pestilence,
So very horrible that young, old, nor beast [will survive],
Blood, fire, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter in France.

Balkan town ablaze under enemy attack

The Bush "axis of evil" speech was intended to prepare the American public not only for an escalation of the war on terror, but for the opening salvos of World War III. The world is being lulled into what will be the most destructive war thus far in history. According to John Hogue's astrological advisor, Dan Oldenburg the dating for the above quatrain is July 2002 or September 2004. Therefore, it appears that 2002 is the year of war preparation. If this is true then in 2003 "the pestilence" will come, probably caused by biological and chemical weapons, the "satanic boxes" and "yellow powder" prophesied by Alois Irlmaier (see Russia in News and Prophecy - Part One). Nuclear weapons may also be indicated in line 4 ("blood, fire"). Anthrax or VX kills both humans and animals. So does radiation. The area affected may be regional (the Middle East), inter-regional, or global.

 

NOTES: Time will tell if this was spot on or not. It all depends on whether the war in Iraq, begun March 2003, was in fact the transition into World War III. It certainly was an escalation of the war on terror. The other conflicts appear to be right around the corner. Even Nostradamus gets honourable mention for declaring 2002 a year of war preparation by the West.

A Large One from Bulgaria is Assassinated

 

Alois Irlmaier --

Everything calls peace. Schalom! Then it will occur -- a new Middle East war suddenly flares up, big naval forces are facing hostility in the Mediterranean -- the situation is strained. But the actual firing spark is set on fire in the Balkans: I see a 'large one' falling, a bloody dagger lies beside him -- then impact is on impact ...

Ex-King Simeon II, Prime Minister of Bulgaria
   

Wolfgang Johannes Bekh on the Seer of Waldviertel --

It has already been mentioned that he saw several regional wars and certain warlike actions. For example he saw wars in Yugoslavia and Bulgaria and the destruction of New York among other things ...

nnnnnnnn

NEW PREDICTION: 5/8/02 -- Alois Irlmaier is one of many European prophets who forsees several assassinations of major leaders in the Balkans triggering wars in that region and, ultimately, establishing a premise for Russia to launch a blitzkrieg against Central and Western Europe. The Seer of Waldviertel does not identify where such assassinations will occur, but he does name two Balkan nations that will be at war in the near future: Bulgaria and Yugoslavia. The base 7 calculation for an assassination of a Bulgarian leader establishes two potential vectors: September 2002 or October 2003. This could apply to President Georgi Purvanov. However, the "largest" of Bulgaria would be the former king, Simeon II, now Prime Minister Simeon Saxe-Coburg Gotha.

President Georgi Purvanov

As for war, Bulgaria does not show any base 7 evidence of being embroiled in a major Balkans conflict or World War III until October-December 2003 or December 2004. Nevertheless, we are close enough to a projected military crisis in Europe in late 2002 and throughout 2003, especially in August 21-27, 2003 when Mars will be at its closest opposition to earth in over 5,000 years -- a time Nostradamus warns France will face invasion from the East (see 2003 (Part Three)).

Russian Demonstrators Attack US Embassy in Moscow and Other Buildings -- Russia or Belarus Shoot Down a US Aircraft

 

Attack on US embassy, Russian Parliament building, and other buildingsNEW PREDICTION: 3/16/02 -- The turmoil in the Middle East, the US war with Iraq and Iran, and US involvement in Georgia and the Caspian Sea region will heighten Russian paranoia concerning the United States, Britain, and their Western allies. Anti-Israeli feelings will also intensify as the Middle East conflict grows bloodier. Rage will boil over throughout the country, especially if the dreaded "Mabus scenario" begins to play out over US attacks on Iraq.

Russians will demonstrate in the streets against U.S., Israeli, and Western policies in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, the Balkans, and elsewhere.

Demands for Russian military action will be voiced loudly in Parliament. One of the loudest speakers may be Vladimir Zhirinovsky.

Russia or Belarus shoot down US planeThe growing anti-Nato and anti-US demonstrations may also lead to protests against Putin's pro-Western government. It is not at all impossible that another military showdown will take place between the Russian leadership and Russian parliament, similar to what occurred in September and October 1993. In any event, the US embassy and, perhaps, other Western buildings in Moscow will be attacked by angry Russian mobs. It is also possible symbols of the Russian leadership will be attacked.

At this time, the Russian military will be divided in its sympathies. Hardline military leaders in Russia or Belarus will order the downing of a US plane over Russian or Belarusian air space. The plane the Russians or Belarusians shoot down may be military, reconaissaince, or civilian aircraft -- I cannot determine for certain.

These events should all occur around September 2002.

 

There is only a remote chance that the following Dream Window may be related to this prediction. It involves a massive Russian nuclear attack on the United States. However, I do not believe this is likely to happen until the summer of 2003 or 2005, or the early autumn of 2004.

Russians did demonstrate against the US buildup to and launching of the war in Iraq.

Russia and Belarus Forge Defence Pact Against Nato and US -- Send Joint Military Into Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia

 

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko

 

NEW PREDICTION: 3/16/02 -- Part and parcel to the troubles mentioned above, there will be military posturing and preparations by both Russia and Belarus to war with Nato in the Baltics.

The Russian president, Vladimir Putin or a successor, and Belarus president Alexander Lukashenko will declare all past agreements with the United States and Nato void. They will draw up a joint defence pact that will allow them to send troops into the Baltics under certain "provocative situations." Putin and Lukshenko will also demand that Nato withdraw from Kosovo, Macedonia, and Bosnia. Indeed, the Nato alliance will be accused of attempting to subvert and conquer Russia due to US involvement in Georgia and the Caspian Sea region, and Nato's planned expansion into Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia (the Baltics).

Nato will hear the charges, insisting that they are baseless, but knowing its denials will not be believed. According to the base 7 system, Russian tanks may begin rolling into Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia in September/October 2002. This will eventually lead to friction and conflict between Russia-Belarus and Poland (see below).

 

BELARUS 'CONQUERED': Russia, Belarus agree integration of both countries

Lukashenko (left) looked 'subdued and humbled' - Putin pointed out 'who was boss'Thursday, 28 November, 2002, 06:28 GMT - (BBC News) - The Presidents of Russia and Belarus, Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko, say they have agreed on a timetable for further integration of the two countries. However, they stopped short of giving exact dates or details of the creation of the new union state. Mr Lukashenko was invited to Moscow shortly after all European Union states - except for Portugal - and the United States imposed a travel ban on him and his senior ministers over their human rights record. The BBC's Nikolai Gorshkov in Moscow says that Mr Lukashenko was obviously mindful of the international isolation he got himself into, and thanked Mr Putin for his support. Our correspondent says that, having been ostracised by the West, Mr Lukashenko now sees Moscow as his only hope.

The union project has been under way for five years, but has been beset by wrangles between Moscow and Minsk about power-sharing in the new state. Our correspondent says that the presidents' news conference was an anticlimax - but their body language said more than their words. In contrast to a spectacular outburst just three months ago, when Mr Lukahenko accused Mr Putin of insulting Belarus by trying to turn it into another province of Russia, this time he looked subdued and humbled. Mr Lukashenko said Belarus was Russia's last frontier which it can not afford to lose.

"Belarus has always been and will always be a friend to Russia," he said. Mr Lukashenko also played down the significance of Washington's move, reportedly saying: "I've never gone to the United States for bilateral talks up to now and I think I'll do without it now, too." The US has described the Belarussian president as Europe's last dictator. For his part, President Putin said Moscow had given up a lot over the past 10 years, and it was time to start picking up things.

PREDICTION FULFILLED.

Base 7 Alert: Fiery Death of Actress Butterfly McQueen is Repeated by "Get Christie Love" Actress

 

ALERT POSTED (10/13/02): Something I don't often talk about, but should. There are times an event I am considering posting as a prediction occurs before I am able to. Often this is due to other, weightier matters of importance demanding my attention. Therefore, when I say I foresaw this event possibly taking place around December 2002, you can only take my word for it. I cannot prove otherwise.

Sadly, it is too late for me to present this as a prediction. Yet, even though I had some suspicion the tragedy to be discussed might take place, I never could have figured out the identity of the person who was destined to fall victim to it.

Butterfly McQueenOn December 22, 1995, seven years ago, black actress Butterfly (Thelma) McQueen, famous for many film roles but especially for her portrayal of Prissy in Gone With The Wind, died from burns received in a fire in her Augusta, Georgia apartment.

I was aware of the circumstances of McQueen's death since early this year. However, I put off predicting that the same thing would happen in December of this year, seven years later.

The reason: there had not been a similar event occurring to a black actress during any of the previous years on the time line prior to 1995 (years like 1988, 1981, 1974, etc.). McQueen's death appeared to be a singular event -- one that I felt would have only a remote chance of being repeated, so I put off posting a warning and now it is too late.

This time the actress is Teresa Graves, an actress well-known to 1960s and 1970s audiences, especially in the Laugh In comedy series and in the role of undercover cop Christie Love. She died two nights ago on October 11, 2002, at age 53 in Los Angeles. Her death, like Butterfly McQueen's, was the result of a fire that erupted in her home. The one major difference is that McQueen died from burns and Graves, apparently, suffocated from smoke inhalation.

 

'Get Christie Love!' Actress Dies in House Fire

Fri Oct 11, 6:14 PM ET

Actress Teresa GravesLOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actress Teresa Graves, who appeared on "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" and starred as the sexy undercover cop on The 1970s TV series "Get Christie Love!," has died in a fire that erupted in her Los Angeles home, authorities said.

Graves, 53, was found unconscious in a rear addition to the house where a faulty space heater sparked the blaze, and she was pronounced dead early Thursday at Daniel Freeman Memorial Hospital in nearby Inglewood, according Los Angeles Fire Department officials.

They said the home in the city's Hyde Park district was equipped with working smoke detectors, but Graves may not have heard them from the room she was in. Neighbors said Graves lived with her mother, who had suffered a stroke last year.

Graves is perhaps best known for her title role as a sassy Los Angeles police detective in the ABC action drama "Get Christie Love," which aired from September 1974 to July 1975 and was one of the first prime-time series with a black woman in the lead. Other credits include a big-screen role as the Countess Vampira in the 1974 British horror spoof "Old Dracula," starring David Niven.

She also was a regular on NBC's "Laugh-In" from 1969 to 1970 and appeared in 1969's multimedia/variety flop "Turn-On," one of the biggest one-episode fiascos in television history. According to the Los Angeles Times, her final showbiz appearance was in a Bob Hope special in 1982.

 

Note that both actresses had first names beginning with the letter "T" (Thelma and Teresa). One died in October and the other in December, almost exactly seven years apart. The day was a double number in both cases (October 11 and December 22). Sadly, now in 2002, Graves was too obscure a personality to have ever been considered as a likely victim of such a tragedy. Identifying her in advance would have been impossible.

Still, in closing, if we learn anything at all from this, it is that base 7 system repetitions can, on occasion, be nearly exact. That precedents should never be ignored -- they just might be the beginning of a deadly new trend.

Butterfly McQueen and Teresa Graves are now linked by time, death, and the number 7. Their gruesome and unfortunate deaths serve as a warning to a formerly famous black actress of the future -- in 2009 or 2016 -- possibly one with a first name beginning with the letter "T".


Assassination Danger for Macedonian President
Boris Trajkovski

 

President Boris TrajkovskiNEW PREDICTION: 5/16/02 -- As indicated above in the Bulgaria prediction, prophet Alois Irlmaier saw the assassination of an important leader in the Balkans. In total, Irlmaier saw the murders of a total of three Balkans leaders, the third one triggering a Russian invasion of Europe. He discusses the first murder and the third murder, but for some reason does not tell us anything about the second.

Who this second murdered Balkans leader will be is a mystery.

However, Macedonia remains a dangerous flashpoint -- a new war could still break out again in this strategic interface between Greece, Albania, Yugoslavia, and Turkey.

There is a base 7 projection for a potential assassination of Macedonian President Boris Trajkovski in October 2002. It is also possible that he is the first leader, "the large one who falls" in the Balkans, rather than Bulgarian Prime Minister Simeon Saxe-Coburg Gotha or Bulgarian President Georgi Purvanov.

Macedonia leader feared killed

Thursday, February 26, 2004 Posted: 1902 GMT ( 3:02 AM HKT)

Trajkovksi presided over NATO peace deal in 2001 that ended clashes. SKOPJE, Macedonia (CNN) -- Macedonian President Boris Trajkovski, a moderate credited for helping to unite his ethnically divided country, is feared to have been killed in a plane crash in southeastern Bosnia.

A plane carrying Trajkovski, 47, disappeared from radar at 8:20 a.m. (0720 GMT) Thursday over a mountainous region near the city of Stolac, Macedonian and NATO officials said.

Officials initially said Trajkovski died in the crash, but NATO peacekeepers said the plane's wreckage had yet to be found -- contrary to an earlier report by Bosnian police. Macedonia's government said the president was officially considered missing and presumed dead.

"We still don't have official information from Bosnian officials that there are any survivors ... but they are saying that the chances of anyone surviving are minimal," Macedonian Prime Minister Branko Crvenkovski told his nation in a televised address, The Associated Press reported.

"The loss is huge," Crvenkovski said. "We should mourn, but we shouldn't be afraid. Macedonia is a strong and stable country." The plane -- a U.S.-made Beechcraft Super King Air 200 twin-engine turboprop -- was carrying two pilots and six passengers in addition to Trajkovski, NATO peacekeepers said.

Macedonian presidential spokesman Andrej Lepavcov said foggy weather and land mines were hindering the search for the wreckage. Officials called off an aerial search at nightfall, but foot patrols were expected to continue through the night, said Capt. Dave Sullivan, a spokesman for NATO-led peacekeepers aiding the search, according to AP.

Friday has been declared a day of mourning in Bosnia, while Macedonian state radio played classical music and mourners lit candles outside Trajkovski's Skopje office.

Trajkovski was en route to an international investment conference in Mostar. The plane disappeared from radar about 20 miles (32 km) southeast of the Bosnian city.

Parts of Trajkovski's aircraft, which crashed into a minefieldThe apparent crash came on the day Macedonia was submitting its formal application for membership in the European Union.

Confusion as to whether Trajkovski was indeed dead led to the issuing of early condolences from NATO and Ireland.

EU President Romano Prodi said few men in Macedonia have done more than Trajkovski to lead Macedonia toward EU membership. "We all owe very much to Boris Trajkovski and my sincere hope is that his vision will be a legacy for all Macedonians and will strengthen even further their determination to join the European Institutions soon," Prodi said in a written statement.

NATO Secretary General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer praised Trajkovski's "great leadership."

And in Dublin, Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern was meeting with a visiting Macedonian government delegation presenting the official EU application. The delegation flew home upon reports of the crash. Ahern's office said the presentation ceremony for the EU application had been canceled because of the "tragic news that President Boris Trajkovski has died in a plane crash over Bosnia." Ahern also offered his "deep sympathy" to Macedonian Prime Minister Branko Crvenkovski.

Reports of the president's death also echoed in the European Parliament in Brussels. "I begin today on a very sad note," said EP President Pat Cox. "I have just learned that ... President Boris Trajkovski of Macedonia has been killed in an accident with his staff as he traveled from Skopje for a meeting in Mostar."

Javier Solana, the EU's international policy chief, called Trajkovski a "man of passion" and said it was "a very tragic day for Macedonia."

Ordinary Macedonians too, struggled to come to terms with the news. "I can't believe this is happening to us. This is a shock," a sobbing Marina Vilareva, a 38-year-old computer expert from the capital, Skopje, told AP.

Before entering politics Trajkovski, who was married with a son and a daughter, studied theology in the United States, where he gave up communism and converted from Orthodox Christianity to become an ordained Methodist minister. On returning to his native Macedonia he became a commercial lawyer.

Since his election as president in late 1999, Trajkovski's term was marked by tensions between Slavic-speaking Orthodox Christians and the country's large ethnic Albanian minority.

He was widely respected in the country for his neutral stance and had called for a greater inclusion of ethnic Albanians in state bodies and institutions. He presided over a NATO-brokered peace deal in 2001 that ended months of armed clashes between the two groups and was viewed by the West as having prevented a full-blown civil war in the mountainous state bordering Kosovo.

But he was also criticized for being too lenient and too accommodating with the frequently oppressed Muslim minority.

More recently the westward-looking Trajkovski spearheaded Macedonia's bid to join the European Union.

Base 7 Emergency Alert: Railway Terrorism Warning Has
1995 Precedent

 

Train crashBase 7 Emergency Alert (10/26/02): Two days ago the FBI issued a national alert that Al Qaeda may attack the US railway system. They said the terrorist attack might be more devastating than 9/11 and could take place in Sacramento, New York City, or at a location unknown.

There is a base 7 precedent for such an event. Exactly seven years ago to the month, on October 9, 1995, an Amtrak passenger train was derailed in Arizona in what many thought at that time was an act of terrorism. Therefore the danger of a repetition THIS MONTH or in NOVEMBER is extremely high.

A numerological analysis of the day of the 1995 event (October 9) reveals that, if carried out this month, an equal or greater terrorist attack against US railway systems could take place on October 29, with a slightly smaller chance of it taking place October 30 or 31 (Halloween). An overlap into November or even December is also possible.

Here is the CNN report from 1995: http://www.cnn.com/US/9510/amtrak/10-10/

 

Terror on Amtrak train: 'All Americans will die!'

January 8, 2003
2:30 a.m. Eastern

WorldNetDaily.com

In a terror scene reminiscent of Sept. 11, an armed man threatening to kill Americans aboard an Amtrak train had to be subdued by passengers. "All Americans will die!" suspect Gerardo Bedia was quoted as shouting, along with a host of obscenities before being overpowered by fellow travelers Sunday near Big Sandy, Texas.

According to Big Sandy police, the man spoke English, Spanish and "some kind of Middle Eastern language."

Chief Ronnie Norman said the weapon – a black, all-plastic polymer folding knife – is typically used to defeat metal detectors, the Longview News-Journal reported. "It could have been a lot worse," Norman told the paper. "The passengers did a fantastic job of restraining him."

"We haven't been able to determine exactly where he's from. We know he's spent time in Pennsylvania," he added.

Statements from officers responding to the train's emergency stop indicate Bedia was screaming "I'll kill you," leaving some passengers visibly shaken, though no one was physically hurt.

They were able to restrain Bedia in an upstairs compartment of the train until police arrived. Bedia "was barely conscious, not coherent, couldn't walk well and had to be assisted from the train," according to the Tyler Morning Telegraph, which said authorities believe the 21-year-old was intoxicated. The assailant also reportedly grabbed for an officer's gun as he was being arrested. Officials searched bags on the train for other weapons before the train was able to resume its journey.

Bedia is reportedly an American citizen who was carrying Army identification.

Chief Norman told the News-Journal that passengers should be commended for restraining Bedia, comparing their bravery to actions by United Flight 93 passengers, who confronted terrorist hijackers on Sept. 11, 2001. Local authorities contacted the FBI, and Bedia was being held on charges of making a terroristic threat.

 

COMMENT (1/13/02): I suppose we could consider this alert as a PREDICTION THWARTED, although the incident does appear to lack the coordination of an Al Qaeda attack ...

Assassination of Yasser Arafat or Ariel Sharon

 

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat

 

NEW PREDICTION: 10/26/02 -- There is little time left, since the base 7 vector for such an event is November 2002. I have been fully aware of this possibility for more than a year, but have chosen not to post this prediction for one very good reason: neither Ariel Sharon nor Yasser Arafat can at this time be considered a "peacemaker" like Yitzak Rabin or Anwar Sadat. Indeed, Sharon is and always has been a man of war and Arafat too has taken on the mantle of warmonger since September 2000. For this reason, I deduced that both of these leaders would be immune to an assassination attempt of an Arab or Israeli peacemaker in November 2002.

Nevertheless, Arafat was a signatory of the Oslo Peace Agreement of 1993, as was Rabin. Rabin died seven years ago on November 4, 1995. Fourteen years earlier, twenty (3 x 7) years ago, in 1981, the signatory of the Camp David Peace Accord of 1979, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat was assassinated.

Thus, we have an Arab leader assassinated, then an Israeli. Logically, if the pattern continues, the next victim will be an Arab again. That would make Yasser Arafat the likeliest candidate for assassination. But since it was an Israeli leader who died seven years ago, one cannot completely rule out Ariel Sharon as falling victim to an assassin's bullet, however unlikely that seems.

Also, since 14 years separated Sadat's and Rabin's murders, and since Rabin was killed seven years ago, one might assume that there will be another 14 year interlude. That would make this prediction mute for 2002 and reserve November 2009 as the time for the next assassination.

But one must always err on the side of caution, however unfavourable conditions may seem. News services have been saying all year that the Russian war with Chechnya was virtually over. For that reason I did not predict a replay of the Budonnovsk hostage drama of June 1995 which has now played out again in Moscow -- seven years later.

 

Conspiracy to Murder the Prime Minister Unveiled by the Shin Bet

13:40 Aug-05-03 / 7 Av 5763

(IsraelNN.com) Two terrorists arrested for driving homicide bombers to attacks over recent months led to the unveiling of a Hamas plot to murder Prime Minister Ariel Sharon by targeting his helicopter or motorcade in the Jerusalem area.

Omar Sharif and Samer Ahmed Atrash, 19, have been in GSS (General Security Service/Shin Bet) custody since last month. It was Atrash who drove the homicide bomber to Jerusalem dressed as an Orthodox Jew on 11 June. The bomber then blew himself up on a #14 bus traveling on Jaffa Street in front of the Clal Building in the downtown area, murdering 17 and wounding over 110.

Sharif drove the homicide bomber to the French Hill neighborhood of the capital on 18 May, setting the stage for the homicide bombing attack on board a #6 bus. Seven persons were murdered and about 20 injured in the explosion.

Sharif told interrogators that he was planning a more serious attack, the murder of the prime minister on his way to his Jerusalem office. Hamas terrorists were assigned to learn the movements of the prime minister to prepare for the attack.

 

COMMENT (8/6/03): We now know from the above report that there was indeed a plan to assassinate Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and that it was only foiled by his arrest for the homicide bombing of a bus in Jerusalem back in May.

That means my projection of danger of assassination for Sharon or Arafat starting November 2002 was correct.

Because this particular plot failed, it is to be considered a THWARTED PREDICTION, which has the same value in base 7 as an event that actually occurs. That's because the system I use was created to assess and assert the risk of certain types of events occurring at certain periods of the future. The reader must be mindful of this: the success of a prediction is not always determined by whether it is actually fulfilled, it is also successful if it is demonstrated that an event would have happened, but was prevented from happening. In a number of cases, this is the preferable result, not fulfillment.

One additional note: so volatile is the region of Israel and the occupied territories of Palestine that, in this instance, there is no guarantee that another murder plot against Sharon will not be planned and carried out.

Palestinian leader Arafat dies at 75

Thursday, November 11, 2004 Posted: 0429 GMT (1229 HKT)

Yasser ArafatPARIS, France (CNN) -- Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat, 75, the leader who passionately sought a homeland for his people but was seen by many Israelis as a ruthless terrorist and a roadblock to peace, died early Thursday in Paris.

Arafat had been sick with an unknown illness that had been variously described as the flu, a stomach virus or gallstones. He flew to Paris nearly two weeks ago seeking medical treatment and was hospitalized with what Palestinian officials said was a blood disorder. He had been on a respirator since slipping into a coma November 3. A hospital spokesman said he died at 3:30 a.m. Thursday (9:30 p.m. Wednesday ET).

Arafat's body will be taken from France to Cairo, where the Egyptian government will host a state funeral for him, Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erakat said. He will be buried outside the Palestinian Authority headquarters compound in the West Bank city of Ramallah -- a resting place Erakat called temporary. "One day, we will have our own independent state with east Jerusalem as its capital," Erakat said.

For five decades, Arafat -- adorned with his trademark checkered kaffiyeh -- was the most prominent face of Palestinian opposition to Israel and the push for a Palestinian state, first as the head of the Palestine Liberation Organization, which carried out attacks against Israeli targets, and later as the leader of the quasi-governmental Palestinian Authority after parts of the West Bank and Gaza were returned to Palestinian control. His death leaves no clear immediate successor in the often fractious world of Palestinian politics.

The Palestinian constitution provides that the speaker of the Palestinian House of Representatives assumes temporary power if the president dies or is found to be unable or incompetent to rule. The constitution calls for elections within 60 days to fill the post permanently. The president holds office for five years and can stand for re-election once.

Arafat was first elected head of the PLO in 1969, and by 1974, Arab leaders recognized the group as "the sole legitimate representative" of the Palestinian people. In 1994, Arafat was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, along with Israeli leaders Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres, for their work on the Oslo accords, seen at the time as a breakthrough toward an independent Palestinian state and a permanent peace with Israel.

Yet a decade later, Arafat died without seeing his dream of a Palestinian homeland come true. At a summit at Camp David, Maryland, in 2000, Arafat decided to turn down a U.S.-brokered deal offering Palestinians control of most of the occupied Palestinian territory. Three months later, intense fighting broke out between Palestinians and the Israeli army. Israel -- in retaliation for increased terrorist attacks on Israeli civilian targets -- severely restricted Arafat's movements, confining him to his West Bank compound in Ramallah in December 2001.

Continuing violence, along with corruption and economic problems, raised questions at home and abroad about Arafat's ability to lead the Palestinian Authority. In 2003, under pressure from the United States and members of his own Cabinet, Arafat appointed Mahmoud Abbas to the new position of prime minister, a move designed to decentralize power. But Abbas resigned less than six months later, saying he didn't have enough support to do the job. In July, Arafat announced a program designed to unify security forces and tackle corruption after his frustrated second prime minister, Ahmed Qorei, also tried to resign.

Arafat is survived by his wife, Suha Tawil, whom he married in 1991, and their daughter, Zahwa, who was born in 1995.

BASE 7 ALERT: Remembering Riyadh: Are US Forces,Training
Facilities, Air Bases, Naval Bases,and Ships Abroad in
Danger of a Major Terrorist Attack in November?

 

Building destroyed during Riyadh attack in 1995ALERT POSTED (10/8/02): The reason this is a "base 7 alert" and not a "prediction" is because it is possible the event I am concerned about has already been repeated this month (October). But if not, then danger of a terrorist attack of greater magnitude -- and higher casualities -- exists for November 2002.

Seven years ago, on November 13, 1995, a car-bomb explosion outside a U.S. training facility in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia killed six people, including five Americans, and injured 60 others. Thirty-four of the wounded were Americans. The other four were civilians. To this day, suspicion continues to fall on the nation of Iran as being responsible for this cowardly and evil attack and one worse that occurred in Dhahran on June 25, 1996.

Is it possible that seven years later, this month, or in November, or a month later in December, another terrorist attack on US forces and facilities will occur?

It is possible that it has already happened, but on a smaller scale. Today, according to CNN, "two Kuwaitis opened fire on a group of U.S. Marines on Failaka Island in the Persian Gulf, killing one and wounding another, in what the Kuwait government called a terrorist attack. The Marines returned fire and killed the two assailants, a spokesman for the U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet said."

The problem is, the casualties were very light -- one dead and one injured -- whilst the 1995 Riyadh attack killed six and injured sixty.

Then there is the explosion and fire that occurred aboard a French supertanker two days ago. Suspicions increase that this may have been a terrorist attack similar to the bombing of the USS Cole in October 2000. One member of the 25-person crew remains missing, but is presumed dead. The investigation continues.

Again, casualties were very light -- one missing and presumed dead, no injuries. Also, this was an attack against a French vessel, not an American ship.

So the question is: are these two events warnings of what may come next month (or a bit sooner or a bit later) or are they a feeble echo of 1995 and the only extent of the danger that exists?

Bear in mind that if this is an event that remains to be repeated as a similar event of equal or greater magnitude, that not only ground-based facilities and bases are in danger, but this time around, so are troops conducting exercises or on patrol, naval bases, and US warships.

Where might this happen? Unlike in 1995, there are many possible places now. My first guess would be Afghanistan, now occupied by US forces, but certainly also in Kuwait (as with today's incident), Saudi Arabia (again), or anywhere in or along the Persian Gulf and Arabian Sea. Also, the Philippines, East Africa, and the Balkans.

If today's events in Kuwait are not a feeble replay of Riyadh 1995 and a bigger one is being planned soon, then perhaps it is not too late for the US military to be prepared for the real deal before it goes down.

 

At least 183 dead in Bali bombings -- Attacks called worst acts of terrorism in Indonesia's history

Sunday, October 13, 2002 Posted: 2:26 PM EDT (1826 GMT)

Bombing blast in BaliKUTA, Indonesia (CNN) -- Indonesian government officials Sunday called attacks that killed at least 183 people in two Bali nightclubs the work of terrorists, while U.S. and regional intelligence officials linked the bombings to the al Qaeda terror network.

The blasts were "the worst act of terrorism in the country's history," according to Indonesian police Chief Da'e Bakhtiar. More than 100 also were wounded in the Saturday night attacks on the Indonesian tourist island. Identification of the dead was difficult because of serious burn injuries. Many of the dead and wounded were Australians, but Indonesian, German, French, British and Americans also were among the casualties. One American and five Britons were among the confirmed dead.

Indonesian President Megawati Sukarnoputri arrived Sunday in Bali, visiting the injured before heading to the blast scene. She returned to Jakarta on Sunday night, where she was expected to convene an emergency Cabinet session.

President Bush offered U.S. assistance to the Indonesian government and said the bombings were designed to "create terror and chaos." "On behalf of the people of the United States, I condemn this heinous act," Bush said in a statement. "I offer our heartfelt condolences to the families of all the murder victims from numerous countries and our wish for the swift and complete recovery of those injured in this attack." According to witnesses, an explosion occurred at one nightclub. As people streamed out, another, larger blast tore through the Sari Club, which caters to international visitors.

"There was just a procession of people covered in blood, covered in glass, glass embedded in people, people's backs which have obviously been on fire," said witness Richard Poore. "It was just horrible." An official with the American Chamber of Commerce said the explosion rattled windows at least 6 miles (10 kilometers) away.

The blasts and subsequent fire destroyed an entire city block, said Robert Koster, a journalist on the scene. It appeared the second explosion may have been caused by a car bomb, he said. Another explosion occurred around the same time near the U.S. consular office on the island. There was no immediate report of casualties.

Region's seventh bombing in three weeks

U.S. and Asian intelligence authorities said they had linked the attacks to the al Qaeda terrorist network in Southeast Asia because they bear the hallmarks of the terrorist group:

Coordinated, simultaneous bombings, a tactic outlined in an al Qaeda training manual.

Attention to timing: The blasts took place two years after the terrorist attack on the USS Cole that killed 17 sailors and wounded 39 others in the Gulf of Aden.

Aiming at an economic target, a recent switch in al Qaeda tactics. Tourism is Indonesia's third-largest source of income.

A likely role by Jemaah Islamiah, a radical Islamic group linked to al Qaeda which experts say is the only one in the region with the capability to coordinate such attacks.

It is the seventh major bombing in the region in the last three weeks. They include an explosion Saturday outside the Philippine consulate in Manado, Indonesia, a grenade attack outside a U.S. Embassy warehouse in Jakarta and a blast at a bar in the southern Philippines that killed one U.S. Marine and three Filipinos.

Jemaah Islamiah, which authorities suspect is al Qaeda's network in Southeast Asia, is blamed for the September 23 grenade explosion near the U.S. Embassy warehouse as well as several other bombing attacks in Southeast Asia.

Australia's Foreign Minister Alexander Downer said "preliminary indications" suggested that an Islamic radical group could be behind the blasts. "We have been very concerned about terrorist organizations operating in Southeast Asia, including Indonesia, organizations such as Jemaah Islamiah, and there are at least preliminary indications that one of those types of organizations is behind this," Downer said. Australia is sending an investigative team to work with Indonesian authorities to find out who was behind the attack, Downer said.

Many Australians among victims

88 of the dead were AustraliansFriends and family of the victims flooded the local hospital in Bali on Sunday, trying to find any information about the status of their loved ones. Hospital officials appealed for volunteers to help care for victims with serious burns.

Just after midnight Monday in Sydney (10 a.m. EDT Sunday), the first of four Royal Australian Air Force C-130 transports touched down in Darwin, Australia, carrying 27 Australians wounded in the back-to-back blasts. At least 113 other Australians were wounded, with 16 listed in serious condition. Medical facilities were overwhelmed in Bali, causing concerns in Australia about the other nation's ability to provide treatment. Extra flights were scheduled to ferry Australians and other tourists to Australia.

Many football and rugby players from Australia were in the Bali nightclub at the time of the explosion. "At this point in time we have seven unaccounted for," said Brian Andersen of Australia's Kingsley Football Club. "We found one this morning in the hospital with burns, but we can't get any other information regarding the other seven at this stage."

Kenya terror strikes target Israelis

Thursday, 28 November, 2002, 20:51 GMT

The bomb devastated the Paradise hotel complexBBC News - At least 15 people have died in a suicide bombing at an Israeli-owned hotel in Mombasa, Kenya, just as two missiles were fired at an Israeli holiday jet that had taken off from the city's airport. The missiles narrowly missed the Arkia airline plane - a Boeing 757 carrying 261 passengers - but a large part of the Paradise Hotel was reduced to rubble and the rest is a smouldering shell.

Kenyan police said three suicide bombers were killed, along with nine Kenyans and three Israelis, two of whom were children. About 80 people, most of them Kenyans, were injured in the attack and many are being treated for burns. A team of Israeli doctors has arrived to help evacuate the Israeli injured. Mombasa police have detained two people - said to be of Middle East origin - who were in the area of the hotel bombing. Police are now examining the crater left by the car bomb. The vehicle was obliterated.

In Lebanon, a previously unknown group called the Army of Palestine has said it carried out the attacks. But Kenyan and Israeli officials speculated that Osama Bin Laden's al-Qaeda network might have been responsible.

The US Government condemned the attacks, but said it was too early to blame al-Qaeda. "The United States Government deplores this violence," said White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe. "We stand prepared to offer the governments of Kenya and Israel any assistance necessary in this investigation." If confirmed as the work of al-Qaeda, it would be their first direct attack on Israelis - despite Bin Laden's hostility towards Israel.

Mombasa, on Kenya's Indian Ocean coast, is a popular destination for foreign visitors and the hotel was frequented mainly by Israeli tourists. In 1998, the US embassies in Kenya and neighbouring Tanzania were attacked in nearly simultaneous car bombings that killed 219 people and 12 people respectively. The US blamed al-Qaeda.

Coordinated, synchronised attacks are a hallmark of al-Qaeda, and the BBC's security correspondent Frank Gardner says months of careful surveillance clearly went into the latest Kenya attacks.

Suicide team

Eyewitnesses said an all-terrain vehicle with three men on board crashed through a barrier outside the Paradise Hotel and headed towards the lobby. One man got out and ran towards the reception, where he set off an explosion, while the others stayed in the vehicle, which blew up at the same time, witnesses said.

The blast occurred just after some 60 visitors had checked into the hotel, all of them from Israel, hotel officials said. Most of the Kenyan victims were said to be traditional dancers.

Claim

Al-Manar television in Lebanon later reported a short statement from a group called the Army of Palestine claiming responsibility for the attacks. The group said it wanted the world to hear the "voice of the refugees" on the 55th anniversary of the partition of Palestine.

The attacks happened within a few minutes of each other, just after 0800 local time (0500 GMT). They coincide with important primary elections in Israel, with Prime Minister Sharon facing a party leadership challenge from Foreign Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Near miss

Touchdown back in Tel AvivThe airliner landed safely at Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv about five hours after the missile attack. It was escorted in by Israeli F-15 fighter jets. Relieved passengers broke into tears and sang a traditional Israeli song.

Kenyan police said a missile launcher and two missile casings were found in the Changamwe area of Mombasa, about two kilometres from the airport.

The Israeli pilot, Rafi Marik, said he felt a jolt and saw two white smoke trails passing "not very far" from the left wing of the aircraft before disappearing after a few seconds. Some of the passengers said they heard a loud noise just after take-off. The Arkia charter company has a regular weekly service flying tourists between Tel Aviv and Mombasa.

 

NOTES (8/25/03): Where, oh, where was my mind on October 13, 2002? Did I not say, "Where might this happen? Unlike in 1995, there are many possible places now. My first guess would be Afghanistan, now occupied by US forces, but certainly also in Kuwait ..., Saudi Arabia (again), or anywhere in or along the Persian Gulf and Arabian Sea. Also, the Philippines, East Africa, and the Balkans."

I post the alert on October 8 and five days later comes the horrific terrorist bombing in Bali, Indonesia. Then comes yet another bombing attack in Kenya in late November.

I must have been terribly distracted by something else not to note that this base 7 alert was FULFILLED not once, but twice, one month before and one late in the month of the November 2002 vector. In fact, now that I think about it, I was distracted: my father was ill in November and I was driving to the hospital a lot. I was offline quite a bit that month.

No question that both of these bombings were precursors for the Saudi Arabia bombing that occurred this year in May, also successfully predicted on the 2003 (Part Two) page almost to the month.

Shame on me for not connecting both events to this prediction. Shame on you for not bringing this to my attention.

Terrorists Explode or Crash One or More US/British Airliners

 

A horrifying spectacle

 

NEW PREDICTION: 8/23/02 -- The last time I warned of a terrorist attack on a US airliner was for August 2001. What happened instead was that four airliners were hijacked in September, two crashed into the WTC, one into the Pentagon, and one crashed in Pennsylvania. In this post-9/11 world it would be extremely unwise to believe that terrorists will be content with destroying only one passenger jet. Therefore, I leave this prediction open for one or more planes to be involved.

This time I feel the danger may include the UK as well as the US. It may be only UK planes, only US planes, or it may be both UK and US. This will occur in December 2002.

There may also be a French, Italian, or German connection to this, but I am not sure what it will be or if it will be. The reason I say this is because, as the decade progresses, we will find not only America, but many European countries will become more and more the target of major terrorism -- the kind the US saw on September 11.

 

Heathrow target of terrorist plot? Report: Al-Qaida planned to fire missile at airliner from theme park near airport

April 19, 2003

2003 WorldNetDaily.com

Al-Qaida terrorists planned to shoot down an airliner from a theme park close to London's Heathrow Airport in February, according to a report in Britain's biggest selling daily, The Sun. Britain's government stationed thousands of military personnel and police around the world's busiest airport and other key London sites to thwart the plot.

At the time, authorities would not reveal the exact nature of the threat, saying only there were fears of a possible al-Qaida strike to coincide with the Muslim festival of Eid. But a government source told The Sun that members of the terror network planned to break into Legoland while it was closed for the winter before carrying out the strike using a shoulder-fired missile.

''The intelligence services established there was a threat from elements connected to Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida network,'' a source said. ''Our people later learned that their plan included a break-in at Legoland to launch the missile. We believe the target was probably going to be a big passenger jet heading to Heathrow. ''Obviously they hoped to get in unnoticed, mount the assault and get away before anyone had realized where the missile had come from,'' the source added.

 

COMMENT (8/11/03): Things were so busy during the Iraq war and the weeks leading up to the alleged "May 15" PX rendezvous, that the above story got buried. What it reveals is that the danger I specified was quite real and that a plot to carry out a terrorist attack in the UK with airliners was quite real. This act was to be carried out in February 2003 -- only two months after the December 2002 vector. Based on this information, we may conclude that this was another PREDICTION THWARTED. However, a successful attack could still be carried out before the end of 2003 according to the latest report.

Russia will invade, forcibily re-annexing Poland into a new, 21st-Century Warsaw Pact. The world will shudder at what the ramifications will be. This could be the start of a Russian blitzkrieg of Europe, but I think the dating is still a bit premature. Perhaps there will be a struggle to recapture a few of the former Soviet satellites before the all-out war against Western and Central Europe. Poland will be the first to fall.

It is becoming increasingly more likely that my envisioned joint Russian-Iranian blitzkrieg of the Balkans and the rest of Europe by May-August 2002 may not, in fact, happen until August 21-27, 2003. The failure of the war in Macedonia to develop into a great Balkan war in 2001, along with the slow and measured pace of both the US war on terrorism and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, may also have slowed down the progress of several of my predictions.

Nuclear Destruction of Cagliari by Libya

 

Nuclear destruction of CagliariQuatrain 2.81

By fire from the sky, the city is nearly incinerated,

The waters again menace Deucalion (the Greek version of Noah),

Sardinia vexed by the African fleet,

After Libra leaves his Phaeton (the sun).

 

With arms received from Russia, Iran, and Iraq, Moammar Gadhafi's submarine fleet will launch a nuclear missile from the Tyrrhenian Sea, incinerating the Sardinian port city. By this time Russia will be cementing its military alliance with all three countries as well as certain Transcaucasus and Central Asian nations allied with Iran.
