I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse
According to the Torah and the Christian Old Testament, the above is a covenant God made with Abraham upon promising to turn his descendants into a
great nation. In some religious circles, it is believed to mean those who support God's people through Israel will be blessed while those who go
against God's people will have tragedy befall them. The below is a series of events where the United States went against Israeli interests only to be
the victim of tragedy caused by natural disasters.
Take the below as you will. I'm only providing it for discussion.
CORRELATION I: THE MADRID CONFERENCE (1991) AND BUSH COMPOUND
: THE MADRID CONFERENCE OF 1991
. In this conference, 'land for peace'
deals were negotiated during George Bush Senior's presidency who helped spearhead the conference by creating a list of goals to usher in Middle East
peace at the expense of Israel giving up land. This took place in late October 1991.
: The Kennebunkport Bush compound was severely damaged in late October 1991 coinciding with the Madrid conference. Even more unusual, the
storm that hit the compound with 35 foot waves traveled east to west instead of the normal west to east direction.
. See: The bottom of intro to the article.
CORRELATION II: THE MADRID CONFERENCE (1992) AND HURRICANE ANDREW
: The Madrid Conference is moved to Washington D.C. where peace talks continue with the goal to have Israel forfeit land.
ROUND 6 SESSION 1
of the peace talks begin on August 24th.
: HURRICANE ANDREW
strikes at the same time and was one of the costliest natural
disasters in U.S. history until Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Hurricane Andrew hit and began to ravage Florida (and later the gulf area) on August
CORRELATION III: GENEVA (2004) AND CALIFORNIA EARTHQUAKE
: Bill Clinton meets with Syrian president el-Assad in Geneva, Switzerland to discuss land negotiations for Israel to give up the
. Date: January 16, 1994.
: Less than 24 hours later on January 17, 1994, The NORTHRIDGE EARTHQUAKE
strikes Southern California:
CORRELATION IV: WHITE HOUSE MEETING & HURRICANE GEORGES
The earthquake had a "strong" moment magnitude of 6.7, but the ground acceleration was one of the highest ever instrumentally recorded in an
urban area in North America.Seventy-two deaths were attributed to the earthquake, with over 9,000 injured. In addition, the earthquake caused an
estimated $20 billion in damage, making it one of the costliest natural disasters in U.S. history.
: United States Secretary of state Madeline Albright engages in a peace plan that would require Israel to forfeit 13% of it's territory.
On September 28, 1998, Clinton, Arafat, and Netanyahu meet at the White House to finalize the plans.
: HURRICANE GEORGES
hit the United States between August 24th and
August 28th. It finally dissipates once Arafat leaves the U.S.
Once meetings resumed between the three in Maryland during October 1998 to discuss the same 13% land forfeiture, a series of floods and tornadoes hit
Texas so severely that Clinton declares it a disaster area.
CORRELATION V: PALESTINIAN DECLARATION AND SUPER TORNADOES
May 3, 1999: ...On the day that Yasser Arafat is scheduled to declare a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as the capital.
Arafat: We will declare state in May 1999
In a major breach of the Oslo Accords, PLO Authority (PA) chief Yasser Arafat insisted yesterday that, regardless of what happens with the
"peace talks", the PA will declare its independent Palestinian state next year.
: 1999 OKLAHOMA TORNADO OUTBREAK
FURTHER READING & SOURCES
The 1999 Oklahoma tornado outbreak was a severe weather event that lasted from May 3 until May 6, 1999 and brought violent storms to Oklahoma,
Kansas, Arkansas, and Tennessee. This article concentrates on the events on May 3, when 66 tornadoes broke out in Oklahoma and Kansas. The most
significant tornado first touched down southwest of Chickasha, Oklahoma, and became an F5 before dissipating over Midwest City, Oklahoma. The tornado
tore through Bridge Creek, Oklahoma and Moore, Oklahoma, causing $1.1 billion in damage. Forty-eight people perished during the outbreak. This
tornadic event ranks in severity with the Palm Sunday tornado outbreak of 1965. With a total of 66 tornadoes, it was the most prolific tornado
outbreak in Oklahoma history, although not the deadliest.

The historical accounts in this eRumor are, for the most part, accurate. What is left is the question of what do they mean? Believers in the
email's message say it means that if the U.S. wants to avoid natural disasters...be nice to Israel. Skeptics say that going through all the events
in a particular span of years and finding apparent correlations doesn't mean they were connected.

I've been hesitant to start a thread on this topic because I don't want to lay down the welcome mat for accusations of being a brainwashed Zionist
or being labeled one of those who blame tragedy on the supernatural. But this is something I believe to be fascinating and wanted to present it for
discussion. Please let's remain intelligent on a topic that calls for maturity. Feel free to disagree but let's refrain from insults and
This isn't done in the tone of preaching. This is simply given as a topic of discussion. I don't expect anyone's mind to be changed and understand
those who believe will find this interesting while those who do not believe will take this with a grain of salt.
Of course there are good skeptical arguments against the above. For instance, with as many natural disasters as we have, surely some would coincide
with foreign policy decisions. Or perhaps the lack of any phenomenon with other possible affairs involving Israel.
The above information is only presented as a topic of discussion and food for thought.
