SUEZ FULL CIRCLE AND MIDEAST ALERT –
Will the U.S. and the Israelis act over Iran’s nuclear programme?
THE serious prospect of an approaching battle between the Israeli State and Iran over the development by Iran of their nuclear programme has been making headlines recently in our media. Pentagon chiefs and American commanders fear that Israeli plans for an attack will fail due to the lack of intelligence on the location of Iran’s nuclear bases. There is a short window of opportunity before Iran will have nuclear weapons in place and President Bush would like to see the matter settled before his term of office ends next January. How do we evaluate the pattern of possible approaching events?
Students of Divine Time Measures should take note of the parallel time pattern in 2008 from the Suez Crisis of 52 years ago in 1956. The period in late 2008 will fall 4 x 13 years, or 4 x 12 x 390 solar days – significant of world trouble in government for the Ten Tribes – from the Suez debacle at the latter end 1956, when the United States prevented British and French troops from continuing their military action in Egypt. The number 13 is the numerical factor most prominent in United States affairs, linked as it is to Manasseh, the thirteenth tribe of Israel.
The critical date pattern commences July 26 when, in 1956, the Egyptian leader seized the Suez Canal. Prime Minister Eden of Britain feared another Hitler in Egypt’s military dictator Gamal Abdul Nasser, and the strategic consequences of being held to ransom over oil supplies. A military plan was drawn up by Britain and France, in collusion with the Israeli State, in which the Israelis would strike first to be followed by British and French intervention to stop the fighting, so taking back control of the Suez Canal.
We then move to October 29, the anniversary of when the Israelis invaded Egypt across the Sinai desert. October 31 through to November 5 covers the period of direct military action by Britain and France when Egyptian airfields were bombed and troop landings took place at Port Said. In 2008, this period will cover the immediate lead-up to the U.S. presidential election which takes place on November 4.
There will then be a period until Inauguration Day on January 20, 2009, when the U.S. presidential office will be in a state of transition – which might be considered an ideal time by the Israelis to make a strike against Iran. Any attack is seen as having to be launched within a year if Iran is to be prevented from securing nuclear weapons. However, reports say that despite a growing sense of urgency, neither the CIA nor the Israeli intelligence, Mossad, knows the site of every nuclear base in Iran. It is a vast country with many facilities which are hidden deep underground.
During the first week of June the Israelis conducted a long-range air exercise involving 100 aircraft which was seen as preparation for a possible attack on Iran. In defiance, Iran is conducting missile tests and threatening retaliation on the Israeli State if they are attacked. The head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, General Ali Jafari, has warned that any attack on Iran would be “regarded as the beginning of war.”
In 1956 President Eisenhower, who had been kept out of the loop, refused U.S. support for the military action taken by Britain and France. He arranged for a United Nations resolution calling for their immediate withdrawal and used American financial power to pressurize them into complying. This pressure combined with an Arab oil embargo put Britain under immense strain and the British government under Prime Minister Eden capitulated. A United Nations force arrived in the region on November 15, and Anglo-French forces made a humiliating withdrawal on December 22 of that year.
We should also note that on August 4, 2008, the U.S. presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama will be 47 years old, or 60 displacements,* from his birth on August 4 1961. This date in itself was 47 years, or 60 displacements, from Britain’s entry into World War I on August 4-5, 1914, making 120 displacements in total – 120 being the number of warning. There is the added significance in this context of the terminal August 6-9, 2008, which is 9 x 7 years, or 9 x 2520 solar days from the first use of atomic weapons in anger at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Any action taken against Iran will be aimed at destroying their nuclear enrichment programme that could be used to build a nuclear bomb.
Another key historical component in the current developing crisis over Iran is a result of what happened three years before the Suez Crisis. On August 19-20, 1953,** the same day that the first successful USSR H bomb test (of August 12) was announced, the CIA, with British MI6 collusion, was ordered by President Eisenhower to topple the Mossadeq government in Iran. Mossadeq’s nationalization of foreign oil holdings threatened the effectiveness of U.S. foreign policy.
Eisenhower saw covert CIA operations as an easy way to win Cold War victories. As a result, the Shah of Iran was restored to power and operated as an agent of western influences. The Iranian revolution of 1979 was partly a matter of settling scores against the Shah’s military and secret police.
The U.S. action against Iran under President Eisenhower, was, like that over Suez three years later, ill-judged in light of what happened in the long term. It was influenced by factors which revolved ultimately around oil and the growing presence in Palestine of the Jewish Israeli State, which in 1948 inadvisably took the name of Israel, despite being of Ashkenazi-Esau descent, which is the key to understanding the cause of the continuous conflict that has been experienced between Israel and the Arab countries over the past 60 years.
The simple fact is that the Jewish Israeli State, by wrongly covering itself with the identity of Jacob-Israel in 1948, adopted the tribulations of the name, rather than the blessings, and in the process has been forced into developing a Masada-type complex – following the pattern of the 953 Jews in their rock fortress, who in AD 73 after becoming subject to the Romans following a year-long siege, committed mass-suicide rather than be conquered and enslaved by the Romans.
If the analogy of the final stand of the Jews at Masada is followed to the end, the Israeli State could initiate a conflict of self-destruction over something like Iran’s nuclear threat – which threat may by symbolic of the giant ramp that the Romans constructed to enter the 1,300ft high fortress on the western shore of the Dead Sea. The site itself was excavated in 1963-65 and is now an Israeli national monument.
The British, French and Israeli military collusion over the seizure by Egypt of the Suez Canal has been viewed since as a foreign policy disaster. In the full circle of events now emerging, it is the United States which is now facing the task of taking on the consequences of its policy at that time.
It does appear now that the terminal pattern of events, 4 x 13 years after the Suez Crisis, could at this time return upon the United States in the form of becoming involved or initiating military action against Iran’s nuclear facilities, either directly or through Israeli action. Having used financial leverage to stop the military action of Britain and France in 1956, the supreme irony is that the U.S. could now be drawn into a much wider conflict in 2008.
A final interesting chronological pattern concerns Senator John McCain, the nominated Republican candidate for the U.S. presidency. It is interesting that he was born on August 29, 1936 and reached 13 years of age on August 29, 1949, the very day Russia exploded its first A bomb. The number 13 being so significant for the United States, in this context, appears to mark him out for an undoubtedly tense international period ahead. He will be 72, or 6 x 12 years old on August 29, 2008, a multiple of the government factor (12), while a further 144 days (12 x 12) will bring him to Inauguration Day on January 20, 2009. A strong indication, perhaps, that he will become the 44th United States president – the number four being the world number.

* The displacement factor of the Great Pyramid is 286.1022 in Pyramid inches and 60 x 286.1022 is exactly 47 x the year circle of 365.2424 days.
**August 19-20, 1953, was the date in Great Pyramid chronology at the South Wall of the King’s Chamber – the Hall of the Judgment of the Nations, entered September 15-16, 1936 -- which failed to be observed for its full significance at the time, but is now seen to have been crucial for Iran and the development of nuclear weapons by the Iranians – and the Russians – as the descendants of the Medes and Persians who were the destroyers of ancient Babylon. The Soviets brought desolation upon the military expression of mystical or prophetic Babylon in Europe during World War II, destroying 80 per cent of the German army.
Financial destruction and the cleansing of the sanctuary of His people in prophetic ‘Jerusalem’ must take place shortly, as was depicted by Jesus Christ when He overturned the tables of the money changes in the Temple in Jerusalem. When Britain exited from the European Union ERM on September 16, 1992, we were 56 years, a perfect Lunar Cycle, from September 16, 1936, when the Hall of the Judgment of the Nations began. The 2008 U.S. State Election is the 56th consecutive quadrennial election for president and 56 men signed the U.S. Declaration of Independence, while Queen Elizabeth II has now reached 56 years from her accession in 1952.
Another Great Pyramid date was September 17, 2001, which had been regarded as very significant since the 1930s. On the evening of September 16, 2001 just days after the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon, Britain’s then Prime Minister, Tony Blair, announced “We are at war with terrorism,” which was the main headline of The Times, London of September 17, 2001. The destruction of the twin towers of the World Trade Centre within one hour appears to have been a symbolic warning of the coming destruction of the false economic system, depicted as the fall of ‘Babylon the great’ in Revelation chapter 18 where ‘one hour’ for the destruction of great riches is given three times.
