I posted this a few weeks ago but it received little attention, so I post it in a new spot.
Written nine months before 9/11 Joel C Rosenberg's novel, The Last Jihad, portrays a hijacked plane attacking a major US city and the President of the
United States. Rosenberg is quoted saying that he had to "make some changes" to the book while he was writing it after the 9/11 attack because his
story was too similar to the actual incident.
Five months before the 2003 invasion of Iraq, he wrote a novel about war with Saddam Hussein, the death of Yasser Arafat eight months before it
occurred, a story with Russia, Iran, and Libya forming a military alliance against Israel occurring the date of publishing,the rebuilding of the city
of Babylon, Iran vowing to have Israel "wiped off the face of the map forever" five months before Iranian President Ahmadinejad used similar language,
and the discovery of huge amounts of oil and natural gas in Israel (a major gas discovery occurred in January 2009). Again, he had to change key
incidents in his stories one right after the other....He has written seven fiction books and is working on one for 2013!
Rightly so, Rosenberg is labelled as the modern day Nostradamus. And is now a huge world wide celebrity in conservative politics claiming that he has
fit together the pieces of the puzzle, using the book of Revelations in the bible along with stories ripped from the headlines. He might even use some
government insider knowledge
Given his track record, we must wonder if Rosenberg's peace plan outlined by a fictional or future President (who just so happens to be an ex- wall
street banker remind you of anyone?) is actually reasonable.
Because of the terrorist attack, the president wants to Bomb the two biggest cities in Iraq. He feels Iraq is the center of modern day terrorism and
with that out of the way. Israel and Palestine will be free to make peace over, the (Nearly Trillion dollar) oil reserves that had just been
discovered there. The ex-banker's plan is to use the reserve to form a gigantic oil company. Palestinian and Israeli civilians will be given automatic
shares, a couple thousand each. Average families in the area make $1500 a year. If they take the company private in a few years. All those people will
be extremely wealthy! Think Facebook and Google and Apple.
Nuking Iraq today might seem outlandish, so replace the scenario with Iran! If Iran attacks the US or Israel. Could we see something like this take
I hear that the series goes deeper into religious mythology so for this discussion, please just take the plan at face value. I don't care weather or
not it works in the novels. I believe that this is a very reasonable plan for peace in the Middle East. Thoughts?
* LET'S PLEASE DEBATE THE STUFF IN THE THREAD. I HAVE SAID PLEASE LEAVE OUT THE RELIGIOUS MYTHOLOGY AND PLEASE TAKE YOUR HATRED FOR ISRAEL ELSEWHERE.
THERE ARE PLENTY OF THREADS FOR THAT.
*THIS IS A DISCUSSION ABOUT PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST ONLY! I DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR OPINIONS OF THE MAN HIMSELF, OR BANKERS, OR OIL LOBBYISTS.
