“Good things come to those who wait”, as the old saying goes. For me, it was an email I received this morning from one of the dozens of lists I am on. In this case, it was a link to a story appearing on an Israeli news site written some time ago entitled “Israel Makes Waves by Simulating an Earthquake” that read in part as follows–
“The Seismologic Division of the Ministry of National Infrastructure’s Geophysical Institute will attempt to simulate an earthquake in the southern Negev on Thursday. The experiment, financed by the U.S. Defense Department, is a joint project with the University of Hawaii and is part of a scientific project intended to improve seismological and acoustic readings in Israel and its environs, up to a 1,000 km/621 mile radius.
The experiment intends to improve the understanding of sound waves in the atmosphere. Scientists will then be able to fine-tune Israel’s seismological equipment to give advance warning of earthquakes. Measurements will also be taken in other countries, including Cyprus, Greece, France, and Germany.
Israel will create a controlled explosion of 80 tons of explosive material, which will simulate the intensity of a tremor after an earthquake of Magnitude 3. Natural earthquakes of a similar intensity occur in the Middle East region about once a week, without the public feeling them.
In the last few years, the Geophysical Institute has created several earthquake simulations in order to calibrate its equipment. In June 2004, the institute detonated 32 tons of explosives in the southern Negev. In June 2005, the institute detonated 20 tons in the Beit Alfa quarries in the Jezreel Valley south of the Galilee. The success of the experiments has significantly contributed to improving the accuracy of identifying earthquakes in Israel.”
So, in other words, the notion that “interested parties” can cause earthquakes is not as much an “Art Bell” topic as some may think. The fact that Israel is up to her ears in this kind of business and working alongside the US Department of Defense of all entities is rather interesting as well. Those who would scoff at such a notion should recall that years ago when a few brave souls were claming that Israel had developed an “ethnic bomb” (specifically-designed to kill those of Arab descent) and that the Jewish state was stealing organs of Palestinians they were called everything in the book from conspiracy theorists to anti-Semites. Now these are established facts,
As with all things taking place in our topsy-turvey world these days, the one question that must be asked time and again is “Who Benefits?” When news of the earthquake hit and it was obvious that the centerpiece of the coverage was not the suffering of the Haitian people but rather the fact that Israel was leading the charge in bringing humanitarian relief certainly caused my bushy eyebrows to raise a little. Added to this is the fact that the US sent 10,000–TEN THOUSAND–troops to the region, and not the National Guard types more suited for rescue-relief type work but rather PARATROOPERS is something worth noting as well.
Besides the obvious benefit to Israel’s image resulting from such an event where she morphs from a bloodthirsty killer of dark-skinned Palestinian and Lebanese women and children to the rescuer of dark-skinned Haitians, there is the other possibility to consider–that this was used as a demonstration to the rest of the world that a new weapon of war had been developed, one whose devastation could not be attributed to another country but rather would be seen as an “act of God” to everyone but the leaders of a particular country in the crosshairs of Israel and the US.
Would Israel, working in collusion with the US Defense Department go so far as to cause an earthquake by strategically placing nuclear weapons in certain geologically-sensitive places, thereby causing the deaths of tens of thousands in order to gain a PR victory from it at a time she is universally despised around the world?
Well, perhaps we should ask the 1.5 million Iraqis killed in the aftermath of 9/11 brought about by Israel’s Mossad for the purpose of bringing about the “war to end all wars” between the Islamic and Christian worlds.
