A 100 Year Blizzard in Jerusalem

by Reb Akiva @ Mystical Paths

Israel, actually all of the Middle East, just encountered a (once every) 100 year Blizzard.  The pictures are beautiful as the Holy Land was coated with 3 feet of snow.  The children were thrilled at a once in a lifetime experience.

And, Min HaShamayim, Jerusalem was under siege by snow on Asara B’Tevet, the fast day of the siege of Jerusalem.  And what did this holy siege from heavenly snowfall bring?

- The holy city was Shomer Shabbat (assuming actions of emergency services was pikuach nefesh – permitted due to risk of life).

- The diplomatic attack by the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, presenting the latest U.S. government plan to ENFORCE Israel giving up control of the Jordan Valley and position international “peace” troops instead – a plan that literally reads right out of biblical prophecies, was delayed (since all the appropriate parties could not be consulted and pressured).

Why the U.S., which is “tired of war” and tired of being the world’s policeman, is so focused on the Palestinians while leaving Iraq, dropping Afghanistan like a hot potato, leaving the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of innocents in Syria, and now enabling Iran to continue with ballistic missile work while continuing preparations for creating nuclear bombs, is only interested in pressuring Israel (to death) while giving the Palestinians whatever they want – to the point of having to station American troops to do it, is beyond belief.  It’s almost like Obama or Kerry have “hooks in their cheeks” pulling them into it (a biblical prophetic reference).

Anyway, on to a few pictures…  such pictures would be nothing unusual in New York or Moscow, but Jerusalem???  Once in a lifetime…
