Links: | Ha'aretz | 1 | Reuters | MSNBC |May 11 (Day 131, Evil King): After meeting with Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, who has already found fatal flaws in the Road Map for peace, US Secretary of State, Colin Powell, proceeded to Jericho and met with Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas, aka Abu Mazen. The Palestinians, who had already jumped through major psychological hoops for Washington, were less than impressed, and even bored, with Powell. Both sides were farther apart than ever and without many of their previous illusions. Powell was unable to muster the power of Cosmic Babylon to glue the two arch-rivals together. It seemed that his well-polished peace plan, which was well received in Europe, was out of touch with the real issues.
On May 6th, Sharon announced his rejection of the assumed Palestinian right of return, which had not been rejected by the plan. Sharon had already set up a meeting with President Bush to list 15 objections to the Road Map. So Powell was like a lame duck in today's meeting. It was even deeper. Sharon had strategic objections to the Road Map.
The meeting with the Palestinians was in Jericho. Although the excuse given was for security reasons, this was obviously divine intervention. Jericho is at 31 N., for an evil king, and 35 E., for rest from enemies. The peace plan was pushed after the defeat of Saddam Hussein, the evil king, when there was rest from enemies. Today was Day 131. And it was May 11th, for a witness, as in court. Powell called on Sharon to release security prisoners (terrorists), and Israel released 61 today and agreed to release about 180 soon. Powell met with the Israelis and Palestinians separately, which was the sign of a witness rather than the three in parallel of Ecumenical, Political, and Cosmic Babylon.
As a present to Powell, Israel's hard nosed Defense
Minister agreed to pull back from Gaza. However, less than 24-hours
after a terrorist attack and new threats of homicide bombings, Gaza was
again ordered closed. An Israeli man, 53, was killed in an ambush
this morning near the West Bank settlement of Ofra. Israeli forces
also killed a Palestinian who was trying to infiltrate from the Gaza Strip.
Early today, three Qassam rockets were fired into the Negev town of Sderot.
The number, 3, is the hallmark of the year, 2003.

At least 90 tornadoes were reported overnight, which brings the total for May to 428. There was one unconfirmed death, widespread property damage, and at least 67 injuries. The tornadoes were associated with a weather elephant that stretched from Texas to the Great Lakes up the Mississippi. Texas is the home state of President Bush, and the Great Lakes are in the region of Naphtali, the doe and symbol of peace. The linkage of Texas, in the region of Reuben, to Naphtali represents the adultery of Reuben.
The first tornado was two miles south of Divernon, Illinois at 39 N., for the sin unto death, and 89 W., for an authority counterattack.
A tornado in Canton, Missouri on the Mississippi River touched down near Culver-Stockton College, a private Christian liberal arts college. The tornado injured 4 people and destroyed the college's field house, a mobile home park, and the city's only grocery store. The Joe Charles Fieldhouse had been used for graduation that same morning. Built in 1981, it was named in 1986, where 86 stands for the Arab persecution of the Jew. About 40 buildings and houses were damaged or destroyed, including a fraternity house and a landmark dome on the college administration building. One of the angelic calling cards left behind was a box of unopened G.I. Joe dolls from Dollar General, which were left in the yard of the Arnsman family on Mo. 16, for sanctification. The Arnsman home was untouched except for a couple of broken windows and a missing porch, while their neighbor's home was destroyed. The tornado also overturned two southbound 18-wheelers on US Highway 61. Canton is at 40 N., for maximum divine discipline, and 91 W., for a coup de grace.
There was also flooding in Pike, Hazelwood, Lincoln, and Madison counties.
A tornado in South Pekin, Ill., south of Peoria, destroyed about 50 homes and caused extensive damage. One person was killed and 27 people in the area were treated at hospitals, including three with serious injuries. South Pekin is at 40 N. and 89 W. At least 25 homes in Lima, Illinois north of Quincy, were also damaged by a tornado. The post office and old Christian Church were destroyed, and the top of the water tower was knocked off. Lima is at 40 N. and 91 W. In Peoria, lightning struck a Super 8 at 4025 N. War Memorial Drive and set it afire. A tornado struck the Ipava firehouse about 45 miles southwest of Peoria.
Storms with strong winds up to 150 mph damaged homes in central Kentucky in Hardin, Hart and Mercer counties and caused 16 injuries. In northeastern Kentucky, at least 17 people were treated at hospitals and over two dozen homes damaged from a tornado that hit Lewis and Mason counties near Maysville.
Links: | Washington Post | AP | NY Times | BBC News | 1 |The power in the US management of Iraq has shifted from the Pentagon to a person with a State Department background. Civil government is not the job of the military. The new administrator will still, however, answer to Secretary of Defense, Rumsfeld. The previous management team had barely moved in and gotten their phones installed before the phone calls came that had been reassigned. On May 6th, Day 126, for Political Babylon, President Bush named Lewis Paul Bremer III, 61, a retired diplomat and counterterrorism expert, to replace Jay Garner. Shortly thereafter, Colin Powell removed Barbara K. Bodine, 54, a former ambassador to Yemen and the highest-ranking woman in the U.S.-led interim administration in Iraq. She was the defacto mayor of Baghdad and was removed by a phone call in the middle of the night.
L. Paul Bremer III was born in Hartford, Connecticut September 30, 1941 (Day 273), where 30 is for a priest; 41 is for happiness, and 273 is for freedom (73). Bremer, who favors Jerry Lewis, has the nickname, Jerry. He graduated from Yale University (B.A., 1963) and Harvard University (M.B.A., 1966). He was ambassador to the Netherlands, 1983 - 1986, and then ambassador at large for counterterrorism until 1989 when he retired from the State Department. Then he became managing director at Kissinger Associates, the global consulting firm run by former Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger. Bremer served as Kissinger's executive assistant in the 1970's.
In spite of Bremer's dazzling credentials, the number, 61, which is for income tax, also refers to money, the coin of the realm in the devil's world. "The love of money is a root of all evil" (1 Timothy 6:10). "You cannot love God and mammon" (Matthew 6:24). Winning the peace is the next war. Iraq is rich in oil, and the tyrants will be lined up to take advantage. The love of money is the enemy of grace. The new Battle for Iraq has just begun between the lovers of money and the lovers of God.
The image of a weather elephant in the form of a staff stretched from the northeastern US through Texas. A whirlwind was over the Great Lakes. Another elephant was over the Pacific northwest. An elephant represents a demon Commander, such as Baal. A whirlwind represents reaping what was sown under the Law of Volitional Responsibility (Hosea 8:7a).
South Pekin, Illinois was devastated by a tornado. It is at 40 N., for maximum divine discipline, and 89 W., for an authority counterattack. Colin Powell's trip to Israel to push the evil Road Map was an authority counterattack. The 90 tornadoes in the US heralded Powell's meeting with the Palestinians at Jericho. Jericho is at 31 N., for an evil king, and 35 E., for rest from enemies. Today was Day 131, and the evil king, Saddam Hussein, has recently been defeated. Powell's peace mission is like singing to the choir.
Today was May 11th, for a witness, as in court. Israel released 61 Palestinian security prisoners today and agreed to release about 180 soon as a good will gesture.
