The Bible Code by Michael Drosnin, a reporter, was based on the findings of an Israeli mathematician, Dr. Eliyaho Rips. Rips had used a computer to discover codes in the Five Books of Moses. The two men decided that we are now in "The end of days." One of the codes revealed that 2006 would be a year of World War and "Atomic Holocaust." This was discovered in 2001. According to the code, what was seemingly predicted didn't necessarily have to happen. Our behavior could change the predictions.
What actually happened in 2006 was that Lebanon attacked Israel with rockets that reached Safed in the northern Galilee where I used to live from 1980-1985. The city was famous in the 14th century and contained so many historical places that I was familiar with. I remember going into my apartment's bomb shelter and hoped that I never had to use it. I cried when I saw the destruction of buildings in photos sent to me by my ex neighbor and friend, Sandy Hazen.
Now Hizbullah terrorists have completely taken over Lebanon, which borders Israel in the north. Their leader, Hassan Nasrallah, has announced that if Israel attacks them, they would exceed the shelling of the month-long war in 2006. In fact, they plan on destroying Israel, and that Israeli soldiers would see in their fighters (mujahideen), things unimaginable.
The threat is taken seriously. Prime Minister Olmert's office in Israel had to issue travel warnings to all Israelis abroad that this terrorist group intended to kidnap Israelis in revenge for Israel's Mossad having killed Islamist operations chief Imad Mughniyeh in Damascus. At least they have blamed Mossad. It hasn't been proven who killed him.
Of course, Iran, which lies on the east, constantly threatens the survival of Israel and either does have atomic capability or very soon will have. That is the greatest fear right now. Hopefully, what was predicted to happen in 2006 has been postponed but not forgotten. It's always a daily possibility. The situation right now makes it a big possibility.
