Count Down to Apocalypse Thursday

According to Jewish tradition, on the 17th of Tammuz the walls of Jerusalem according to tradition were breached by both Nebucadnezzar and the Roman army. There were also other infamous events that happened on that day. The current war in Lebanon also started on 17th of Tammuz. On the 9th of Av both the first and second temples were destroyed, ironically on that date in 1994 a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires was bombed by our peaceful neighbors Hezbullah, 86 Jews were killed. In general the day is a bad luck date for Jews throughout history. There are 3 weeks between the 17th of Tammuz and the culmination of the 9th of Av. There have been a little bit less than 3 weeks of war in Israel.

The war with Iran and Syria starts sometime this week, before thursday. With that in mind the Uranium should start flying on thursday the of 9th Av. Is this the beginning or the end of the third temple? Well just in case, its been a nice run here on the rivers of New York.

(I thought I was the one who was against apocalyptic/messianic premonitions?)

You love talking about apocalypse. Let us hope and pray that it be the beginning of something good. I don't know how much more bad the world can take...
