After the first landing attempt at Kimhae Airport
was aborted, the plane was going around for another attempt when it hit
the mountain. It was the first crash with fatalities for Air China

formed in 1988, for blessing. The crash site was at 35 N., for rest
from enemies, and 129 E., for victory over Edom.

Today, Israel captured Marwan Barghouti, the number 2 terrorist-criminal in Arafat's organization. Barghouti was born June 5th, 1960. Today was Day 105, where 5 stands for a giant, such as Baal. The arrest of the giant on Day 105 represents the defeat of one of the giants in Spiritual Warfare. Barghouti is a former criminal who was exiled from Israel in 1987 but allowed to return in 1994 after the Oso accords. He is an example of terrorism brought on by peace negotiations.
Colin Powell traveled to Lebanon and Syria in an attempt to calm the region. Like the rest of the Bush Administration, Powell has had nothing good to say about Israel's military operation to dismantle terrorists. Silence of government bureaucrats does not mean consent.
Air China ended its safety record today after 47 years with the crash of Flight CA-129 on a mountain in South Korea. The number, 47, stands for peace, which points to the Middle East peace process. There were 38 survivors, which stands for dying in the wilderness.
