Ten Major Events Relating to Israel’s Covenant Land
1. October 30, 1991: The Perfect Storm—As President George H. W. Bush is opening the Madrid (Spain) Conference to consider “land for peace” in Israel’s Middle East role, the “perfect storm” develops in the North Atlantic, creating the largest waves ever recorded in that region. The storm travels 1000 miles from “east to west” instead of the normal “west to east” pattern and crashes into the New England Coast. Thirty-five foot waves crash into the Kennebunkport home of President Bush.
2. August 23, 1992: Hurricane Andrew—When the Madrid Conference moves to Washington DC and the peace talks resume, Hurricane Andrew, the worst natural disaster ever to hit America, comes ashore and produces an estimated $30 billion in damage and leaving 180,000 homeless in Florida.
3. January 16, 1994: Northridge Earthquake—President Bill Clinton meets with Syria's President Hafez el-Assad in Geneva. They talk about a peace agreement with Israel that includes giving up the Golan Heights. Within 24 hours, a powerful 6.9 earthquake rocks Southern California, This quake, centered in Northridge, becomes the second most destructive natural disaster to hit the United States, behind Hurricane Andrew,
4. January 20, 1998: Lewinsky Scandal. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with President Clinton at the White House and is coldly received. Clinton and Secretary of State Madeleine Albright refuse to have lunch with him. Late that evening, the Monica Lewinsky scandal breaks into the mass media and begins to occupy a major portion of Clinton's time.
5. September 28, 1998: Hurricane George—As Secretary of State Albright works on the final details of an agreement in which Israel would give up 13 percent of Yesha (Judah and Samaria), Hurricane George slams into the United States Gulf Coast with 110 mph winds and gusts up to 175 mph. The hurricane hits the coast and stalled. On September 28, Clinton meets with Yasser Arafat and Netanyahu at the White House to finalize this land deal. Later, Arafat addresses the United Nations about declaring an independent Palestinian state by May 1999, as Hurricane George pounds the Gulf Coast, causing $1 billion in damage. At the exact time that Arafat departs the country, the storm begins to dissipate.
6. October 15-22, 1998: Texas Flooded—On October 15, 1998, Arafat and Netanyahu meet at the Wye River Plantation in Maryland. The talks are scheduled to last five days with the focus on Israel giving up 13 percent of Yesha. The talks are extended and conclude on October 23. On October 17, awesome rains and tornadoes hit southern Texas. The San Antonio area is deluged with rain. The rain and flooding in Texas continue until October 22 and then subside. The floods ravage 25 percent of Texas and leave over one billion dollars in damage. On October 21, Clinton declares this section of Texas a major disaster area.
7. November 30, 1998: Market Capitalization Evaporates—Arafat comes to Washington again to meet with President Clinton to raise money for a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as the capital. A total of 42 other nations were represented in Washington. All the nations agreed to give Arafat $3 billion in aid. Clinton promised $400 million, and the European nations $1.7 billion. On the same day, the Dow Jones average drops 216 points, and on December 1, the European Market had its third worst day in history. Hundreds of billions of market capitalization were wiped out in the U.S. and Europe.
8. May 3, 1999: The Powerful Super Tornado—On the day that Yasser Arafat is scheduled to declare a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as the capital, the most powerful tornado storm system ever to hit the United States sweeps across Oklahoma and Kansas. The winds are clocked at 316 mph the fastest wind speed ever recorded. The declaration is postponed to December 1999 at the request of President Clinton, whose letter to Arafat encourages him in his "aspirations for his own land." He also writes that the Palestinians have a right to "determine their own future on their own land" and that they deserve to "live free, today, tomorrow and forever."
9. Week of October 11, 1999: Hurricane, Earthquake and Dow Collapse—As Jewish settlers in 15 West Bank (Israel) settlements are evicted from the covenant land in Israel, the Dow-Jones financial averages lose 5.7 percent in the worst week since October 1989. On October 15 the Dow lost 266 points, and a hurricane slams into North Carolina. On the next morning, October 16, a magnitude 7.1 earthquake rocks the southwest in the fifth most powerful earthquake in 20th Century. The earthquake was centered in the California desert and did little damage but was felt in three states.
10. September 11, 2001: Largest Terrorism Event in History—The World Trade Center and Pentagon terror attacks produced the most expensive insurance event in U.S. history ($30 to $50 billion estimate). At the same time the Bush administration, in cooperation with the Saudis, was completing the most comprehensive plan and message ever to be offered on Israel’s covenant land by an American President, and to be presented by Secretary of State Powell to the United Nations General Assembly. Saudi Arabia’s Prince Bandar bin Sultan stated he went from being "the happiest man in the world" on Monday night, September 10, to experiencing the worst crisis of his career on September 11. Dreams of a new Middle East peace initiative evaporated. The realization that most of the hijackers were Saudis "fell on me ... like the whole house collapsed over my head," Bandar said later. He couldn't imagine a way to "do more damage or worse damage to Islam or to Saudi Arabia."
1. March 31, 2001: Bush’s First International Crisis—On the day that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak arrived in Washington for Middle East talks, a Chinese fighter jet “bumps” into one of the country’s EP-3 reconnaissance planes, forcing it, along with the 24-person crew, to make an emergency landing in China. The resulting crisis completely overshadows the visits of both Mubarak and Jordan’s King Abdullah II (on April 10). After King Abdullah II speaks with Christian leaders, members of Congress, and others to get behind the :land for peace” initiative, he visits the White House on April 10 and then returns home to Jordan. On the very next day. China agrees to release the “detained” airmen from the downed plane. (The extremely valuable aircraft has remained behind in China, evidently to be shipped home in pieces.)
2. May 22, 2001: Bush’s First Political Crisis—On this day, President Bush and Secretary of State Colin Powell publicly endorse the Mitchell Report, calling for Israel to give up land in exchange for peace. Concurrently, Vermont Senator James Jeffords is reported to be leaving the Republican Party. On the same-day, the Dali Lama arrives in Washington, angering China, and the Chinese Premier calls Bush “unfit” to be President. On May 25, Senator Jeffords leaves the Republican Party, becoming an Independent and allowing the Democrats to obtain a majority in the Senate, throwing judicial and diplomatic nominations into question. Also on the same day, Daniel Kurtzer is nominated for Ambassador to Israel and is endorsed by pro-land giveaway Reform and Conservative Jews, making up 85% of American Jewry.
3. June 8, 2001: Bush’s First Natural Disaster—Reuters News Service reports that United States CIA director George Tenet and a special envoy from Washington have spearheaded an international effort on Friday “to strengthen a fragile Israeli-Palestinian cease-fire” plagued by fresh violence. The Central Intelligence Agency director hosted talks between senior Israeli and Palestinian security officials in Ramallah, while Assistant Secretary of State William Burns met Palestinian President Yasser Arafat in the West Bank. At the same time, catastrophic flooding overnight brings the Houston area to a near standstill, with nearly 10,000 people left homeless and 3,000 homes and businesses affected, Gov. Rick Perry declares a state of emergency in the Houston area and 28 southeast Texas counties. More than two feet of rain falls at Bush Intercontinental Airport causing flights to be cancelled until early Sunday morning.
4. September 11, 2001: Largest Terrorism Event in History—The World Trade Center and Pentagon terror attacks produced the most expensive insurance event in U.S. history ($30 to $50 billion estimate). At the same time the Bush administration, in cooperation with the Saudis, was completing the most comprehensive plan and message ever to be offered on Israel’s covenant land by an American President, and to be presented by Secretary of State Powell to the United Nations General Assembly. Saudi Arabia’s Prince Bandar bin Sultan stated he went from being "the happiest man in the world" on Monday night, September 10, to experiencing the worst crisis of his career on September 11. Dreams of a new Middle East peace initiative evaporated. The realization that most of the hijackers were Saudis "fell on me ... like the whole house collapsed over my head," Bandar said later. He couldn't imagine a way to "do more damage or worse damage to Islam or to Saudi Arabia."
5. October 2, 2001: First Anthrax Case in 25 Years—On the same day that the first anthrax case in 25 years breaks out, President Bush endorses a Palestinian state.. The cases increase and end up costing the U.S. government billions of dollars along with destabilization of government offices for a few months.
