August 22 roughly coincides with another event exactly 240 years earlier — the conquest of Jerusalem by the Muslim warrior Saladin, the arch-enemy
of the crusaders.
From Wikipedia The Siege of Jerusalem took place from September 20 to
October 2, 1187. It resulted in the recapture of Jerusalem by Saladin and the near total collapse of the crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem, and was the
catalyst for the Third Crusade.
And perhaps most important, August 22 marks the approximate date that the 12th Imam in Islam, or Mahdi, is expected to return to the world. Shiites
believe Mahdi will bring with him a new period of Islamic justice.
Do you have data for backing this? Because last time i heard of the mahdi, he was coming around november 2008, from the president of Iran himself
shortly after his election I think.
Even if the Mahdi was to come on August 22, to come, he needs enough destruction... So they could start destruction on August 21.
Anyway, nothing that we are able to predict will happen, but I predict that something big will happen by the end of this month.
