The 2003 Columbia Disaster : The "mother of all omens" for 2004 and beyond
The belief in omens, or supernatural signs of an impending doom, is something most people in contemporary USA no longer believe in, however, many present day cultures around the world still place great reverence on certain clear and manifest synchronicities that they interpret as being warnings or signs from our "living universe" or, by some, as warnings from God.
A synchronicity was defined by the renown psychologist and researcher Carl G. Jung as a "meaningful coincidence" of two or more events where something other than the probability of chance is involved. Synchronicities often happen to all of us individually but the Columbia Shuttle disaster on February 1, 2003 was a synchronicity experienced, through modern communications, by the entire world.
Though there are many minor synchronistic elements, let us focus on the major one. For the first time there was an Israeli military person on board a USA space shuttle mission conducting military related research and experiments. That person was the Zionist Israeli Air Force Colonel Ilan Ramon. Colonel Ilan Ramon had in the past dropped bombs on Iraq on a so called "preemptive attack" and was aboard the Columbia to conduct biological, laser, and other military research for Israel to use against Palestine. As the Columbia entered the earth's atmosphere it began to disintegrate and by a great coincidence the bulk of the debris, including body parts belonging to the Israeli colonel as well as biologically contaminated junk, fell on the town of Palestine, Texas.
This event was at the same time extremely coincidental and very meaningful , qualifying the event as a major synchronicity.
What did this synchronicity or omen portent? Did it signify that the USA's continued connection with and military aid to the Zionist State of Israel will ultimately bring destruction of the nation as the Columbia was destroyed? There is no question that the Zionist occupation of Palestine facilitated by billions of dollars in USA military aid has and continues to devastate the Palestinian people.
The World Trade Center and Pentagon terrorist attacks are consequences of the USA's unquestioned propping up of Israel at the expense of the Palestinians. Today, the USA finds itself in a desperate quagmire in Iraq, losing almost daily the lives of American soldiers, all the ultimate result of the nation's support for the apartheid state of Israel. What meaning can we assign to the destruction of the Columbia over Palestine, Texas.
The one Israeli aboard the Columbia came down on Palestine like an ominous comet, but it also brought down six American astronauts. Could this be a metaphoric synchronicity of what could happen to the USA as a whole, or worse could it be a sign of the impending War of Armageddon?
Conspiracy and Columbia
Some of the theories focused on Israeli crew member Col. Ilan Ramon, implying that his ethnicity and the fact that he participated, as an Israeli Air Force pilot, in the 1981 bombing of an Iraqi nuclear reactor, were evidence of Jewish or Israeli complicity in the disaster.
One theory put forth the idea that wreckage from the Columbia fell on Palestine, Texas, as "Divine intervention; leaders of Palestinian terror groups called the shuttle accident "punishment from Allah."
The Conspiracies Begin to Coalesce
Less than an hour after the shuttle accident, on a far-right conspiracy site, a poster asked:
So......is it even remotely possible that either the US or the Israeli government is responsible for blowing up the shuttle this morning? No matter what happened, it's a tragedy, but it's interesting to note that it was the one time we happened to have an Israeli astronaut aboard.

A report circulated by conspiracist Alex Jones claimed the shuttle disaster was a "textbook psychological warfare operation," a "mass distraction/mass unifier" that was part of a plan the US government had laid out in the 1960s known as the "Northwoods" plan. This document included the assertion that the Joint Chiefs had proposed blaming Cuba if any problems arose with the 1962 launch of John Glenn.
Jones noted that he had proclaimed three weeks prior, "that there was a very good chance that the globalists would do something horrible concerning the latest Colombia mission." He went on to say,
"Understand, the psychological warfare technicians do not even need to publicly blame Iraq for the Columbia disaster. It will serve as a distraction in the global press during the final weeks of war preparation in the gulf. It will serve the dual purpose of unifying the country behind President Bush as he grandstands."
The other reasons why the disaster had to have been planned, according to Jones, was that,
