NEW PREDICTION: 1/26/04 -- The games shall end where they began. Is it not poetic, even obvious? Unlike Sydney in 2000, I think the Athens Olympics, indeed possibly much of Greece itself, is likely to be a scene of major terrorism, destruction, and even war in August 2004. We are in post-911 times and nearby Italy is already being threatened, in words at least, by international terrorists. Also, according to a regular visitor to this website, Richard M., there is this to consider:
Could this be in any way linked to the following quatrain?
If the destructive power of 7 is unleashed as of February of this year, the "Games of Slaughter" could end up being the Olympics in Athens. And what is the "it" that "will appear" during the August "games of slaughter"? Terrorism, the start of global war, the great miracle at Althorp discussed below, or, possibly, a major comet, even Planet X? Perhaps all of the above ... and more?
Whatever may or may not happen in February or the months immediately following when the destructive power of the number 7 is unleashed, it appears that the month of August will mark the start of a critical period when many diverse and terrible things will come together at nearly the same time. Murder upon murder. Crisis upon crisis. Disaster upon disaster. War upon war. All evils doubled.
|UPDATE (8/21/04) - Is the
resurrection in the final line of Quatrain 10.74 the one
described in the book of Revelation that occurs when
Jesus returns or is it the resurrection that occurs after
His 1,000-year reign is over, Gog and Magog, led by an
unbound Satan, are defeated, and the great White Throne
judgment (Judgment Day) commences? Or is it even a
reference to a real resurrection?
Note that it has been reported that filming is about to begin at Chernobyl in Ukraine of another "Living Dead" zombie movie. This one is entitled "Necropolis" (a word which means "city of the dead" and just happens to be Greek in origin).
Zombie movie filming at Chernobyl
Tuesday, August 10, 2004 Posted: 1715 GMT (0115 HKT)
CHERNOBYL, Ukraine (Hollywood Reporter) -- You might have thought that Chernobyl was off-limits, closed to the outside world behind a rigidly patrolled exclusion zone since reactor No. 4 went into catastrophic meltdown April 26, 1986, spewing radiation to the four winds.
Not a bit of it. The reactor's deadly core was buried in a concrete and steel sarcophagus, but the adjoining reactors carried on producing electricity until they were finally decommissioned a couple of years ago. A rotating staff of some 6,000 specialists and technicians still work at Chernobyl's scientific center ... Some 40 documentaries have been shot within the vast controlled zone that rings Chernobyl and the nearby town of Pripyat.
Now, for the first time, a Hollywood feature film -- the zombie movie "Return of the Living Dead 4: Necropolis" -- has gained access to the infamous site. Ukrainian-born producer Anatoly Fradis is proud -- despite the obstacles and the cost. "Up to a couple of days before we began shooting, it was touch-and-go whether they would let us in, and I had to pay more than I had budgeted to secure the permission," Fradis says, standing inside Chernobyl's first checkpoint inside the zone ...
Most of "Necropolis" -- the fourth in a five-part series shooting back-to-back -- is shooting at the Bucharest, Romania studios where "Cold Mountain" was made. The zombie-free Chernobyl scenes are for the opening, in which a rogue ex-CIA agent is seen stealing the world's last five canisters of Trioxyn gas, the lifeblood of the living dead. "Chernobyl is very spooky and serves our purpose -- we are shooting in all these abandoned towns and villages, with rusting equipment lying around everywhere," Fradis says. The sense of a post-apocalyptic world dawns as we follow the Chaika around the Chernobyl district ...
Is Nostradamus saying WW3, a new reign of terrorism in Europe and the US, or some other horror (perhaps from space) will "appear" when games are held in Greece that will be plagued by terrorists, and when Necropolis is being filmed in Ukraine? And Chernobyl does mean wormwood.
WARNING: AIRLINE DISASTER!
MAY OCCUR IN JULY OR AUGUST-- POSSIBLE ACT OF TERRORISM
July 16, 2004 (3:37 AM EDT): It is possible I am alarming everyone unneccessarily, but a base 7 influence has come to my attention and the remaining time to the event could be quite short. First a little background from my Base 7 Information page. This was a recent update:
The Four Factor
August 27, 2003 -- Regarding the base 7 system, there is another constant I've been working with that holds promise in zeroing in on the nature of an event with more specificity. Half of 7 is 3.5, but I find that rounding up to 4 years to 4 years 7 months gives us some help in isolating the problem of specific action and location.
For example, 14 (2 x 7) years ago between March and June, the Democratic Revolution in China took place. I thought it unlikely that this year there would be a major revolution in China, but 4 years ago (July 1999) there were bloody demonstrations in Iran. Using that knowledge, I concluded a democratic revolution would break out in Iran between March and June of this year. Recent bloody demonstrations begun in May 2003 attest to the success of using 4 in conjunction with multiples of 7 (14 years in this case).
Had I used 4 in conjunction with base 7, I would have known that the war in Iraq would begin in March 2003 and not August 2002. 4 years earlier the Nato war against Yugoslavia began on March 23, 1999. Roughly 4 years before that the Nato air war against Bosnia began (May 1995). 4 years before that Operation Desert Storm was launched (January 1991). And 4 years before that the US entered the Iran-Iraq War when an Iraqi Exocet missile "accidentally" hit the USS Stark (May 1987). An amazing consistency going back 16 years, but there, in 1987, it ends.
It would be folly to expect this sort of consistency to occur with all events, but it is very important to be aware of major happenings four years in the past for they may tend to "colour" those things portended for today using the base 7 system.
The four factor has been applied to several projections already. It is a phenomenon that, nevertheless, remains under study.
The relevence of four years continues. Not since the "white paper" was released by China in February 2000, four years ago, has there been as much tension between China and the US over Taiwan as there has been since October 2003 and especially since March 2004.
This has now given me reason to warn all of you about a potential air disaster happening later THIS MONTH or in August that may or may not be an act of terrorism based on three events:
1) The Concorde air disaster which occurred on July 25, 2000, four years ago, outside Paris, France (Paris flight to New York). It crashed 60 seconds after take off, killing all 109 people (100 passengers and 9 crew) on board and 4 people in a local hotel.
This was one of the few major events of 2000 and had a lot of Nostradamians declaring that the doomed Concorde flight was the King of Terror falling from the sky.
2) Four years earlier, also in July (July 17, 1996), TWA 800 (flight bound from New York to Paris) exploded in midair over Long Island, killing 212 passengers and 18 crew. Some, like myself, still believe that was an act of terrorism.
3) Base 7: KOREAN AIRLINE CRISIS. Twenty-one years ago (3 x 7), on September 1, 1983, the Soviet Union shot down a Korean airliner (KAL 007) bound from Alaska to South Korea. 269 people were killed. It sparked the most serious crisis in US-Russian relations since the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962.
In addition, continuing backwards in four year intervals from 1996, we have two airliner disasters in 1992 at Kathmandu Airport involving Thai (July 31) and Pakistani (September 28) airliners; the shooting down of an Iranian airbus by the US warship Vincennes on July 3, 1988 and the December 21, 1988 terrorist bombing of Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland; nothing for 1984; but on August 19, 1980 a fire in the cargo compartment of Saudi Arabian Airlines Flight 163 six minutes after takeoff from Riyadh killed 301.
That's where the 4 year interval repetitions end: 2000, 1996, 1992, 1988, and 1980, but nothing in 1984. Then, of course, some additional cause for alarm: the multiple of seven (21 years) potential influence from September 1983.
Most Likely Scenario
If this goes like the Iran student revolt of last year as a repeat of Tiananmen in 1989 and the Iran student revolt of 1999, the action will likely be:
I am narrowing it down to July or August. Specific days are difficult to determine. It could be anytime now. But JULY 18-19, 27-28 sound ominous.
If August, then just before the Olympics in Athens.
COMMENT (8/25/04): Is the airliner disaster portion of this presentation a PREDICTION FULFILLED?
I got the event right, and the timing right (late August), but was unable to determine the nationality of the plane with any certainty. I leaned more in the direction that the airliner(s) might be US or French, enroute from Paris to NYC.
But who could blame me for such speculation? Al Qaeda has been threatening the US big time this year and also European nations like Italy, Spain, and France. Forecasting the event and the timing of it in advance, one would logically think, in 2004, that the airliner would be American or Western European.
In any event, I did say that I felt, for some reason, it could be a crisis that would involve Russia. And that is about as close as saying the airliners could be Russian as one might get.
Greece Prediction +0
Airliner Prediction +1.0
NEW PREDICTION: 9/25/99, UPDATED: 1/3/03 -- This prediction originally appeared on the 2003-2012 page (now the 2007-2016 page) on May 9, 1999, but was removed by me after only 24 hours. I have since felt that anyone who is a head-of-state or intending to run for a high political office should be given all the warning time possible -- even if it is many years -- should it appear that their lives may one day be in jeopardy.
This is a slightly revised, duplicate prediction from the 2003 (Part Two) page, which happens to have a second and final August 2004 vector. The original can still be viewed on that page.
Clinton, I have predicted since May 1999 will
make a run for the White House in 2004 and, like another
famous New York State senator, Robert F. Kennedy, will be
assassinated. I predicted she would run for Senator of
New York and win in 2000 long before she even announced
her intention to do so, therefore I remain firm on the
issue of what may befall her if she ends up running for
president in 2004. Already analogies have been made
between Hillary and RFK, journalists and political
watchers calling her another "Bobby." Today's
analogies echo my own prediction from 1999! If Hillary
runs, she'll end up like Bobby -- mark my words!
She will face danger from assassination when announcing her bid to run for the White House in 2004. The assailant's origins will be in the Middle East, but he or she may not be connected with any known terrorist organisation.
My original prediction of Hillary Clinton's announcement to run for NYS senator and then win the 2000 election, of which I was 100% correct, as well as her intention to run for president of the United States in 2004, and subsequent assassination in either June 2003 (had she announced an early bid to run for president) or this year in August 2004 can be read on the 2003 (Part Two) page.
UPDATE (10/2/03): I think I may have nailed it on the head as to why Hillary Clinton might be assassinated if she decides to run for president in 2004. It is an ugly scenario.
If she does run in 2004, then I strongly suspect George W. Bush will be forced to have her "removed." There is no way he will allow a situation to develop where he could be defeated in a bid for a second term. Even if Bush is killed by the Tecumseh Curse, Vice President Dick Cheney has too much at stake (literally in petrol dollars) regarding current US policy in Iraq and the Middle East to risk losing his grip on power. Bush or Cheney will blame Hillary's assassination on a patsy, a fall guy who is of Middle Eastern descent. Or failing that, the fall guy, if not Middle Eastern, will in some way be "linked" to known terrorist groups. The evidence, of course, will be fabriquated.
There have been many analogies made between Hillary Clinton and the late Robert F. Kennedy. What if the parallels are not only true in their lives, but also in their deaths?
Sirhan Sirhan murdered Bobby Kennedy, the democratic State Senator of New York who sought his party's nomination for president in 1968. The assassin was a Palestinian. But that was 1968. Imagine if that had happened NOW.
Not only would Bush be rid of his only real obstacle to a second term of office (Hillary), but he would have the total support of the American people, and possibly many Western European countries, to clean up the entire Middle East. America and many of her allies would be so enraged that an Arab or Iranian killed Hillary, they would allow Bush to "avenge her death" and start a really big Middle East war.
Two birds with one stone ... Perhaps Hillary knows the danger she'd put herself in if she ran in 2004, and THAT is the reason she is saying that she is not running. It is a good reason not to run -- she really shouldn't.
Then again, the assassination strategy could easily backfire if the deed could be linked to the current administration. Should that occur, people would be so up in arms, it could very well trigger the beginning of a civil war in America.
As we approach the seventh anniversary of Princess Diana's death, it might do to bear in mind what Hillary Clinton's maiden name is:
UPDATE (1/17/04): The significance of John Hinckley's "release" from a state mental hospital he has been a long-term patient of since his attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan in 1981 may not be immediately obvious. It is a fact, one reported not only in newspapers but on televised news programs at the end of March 1981, that the Hinckley and Bush families were very close ... both as friends and in the oil business. They still are.
What better person for the current Bush administration to use for an assassination of Hillary Clinton than their own pet zombie, John Hinckley? If he isn't caught, they'll blame it on Muslim extremists. If he is, he'll be made a patsy ... again.
UPDATE (3/5/04): I should add that even if Hillary is on the ticket as a running mate, she will still remain in danger. A Kerry/Clinton ticket would be a more threatening one to the Bush camp than, say, a Kerry/Edwards ticket. But it also opens up the possibility of the presidential candidate, John Kerry, dying under mysterious circumstances, placing Hillary out as frontrunner but also as lead suspect in what would truly be an extraordinary scandal. This is discussed on The U.S. Election of 2004 and Signature of Death for the U.S. President in 2005.
Hillary Clinton faints during speech
New York senator recovers, continues with schedule
Tuesday, February 1, 2005 Posted: 0012 GMT (0812 HKT)
(CNN) -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton fainted during a luncheon speech Monday in upstate New York, citing a 24-hour virus, but she recovered and resumed her public schedule. Clinton, 57, was speaking at the Saturn Club in Buffalo, said Erie County Democratic Chairman Len Lenihan, who greeted her upon her arrival.
"She said she was not feeling well, looked pale," he said. "She told the crowd she was queasy. She said she was going to sit and talk," Lenihan said. At that, she took the microphone but then said she felt warm and left the room to remove the jacket of her black jumpsuit, he said.
Upon her return, at about 12:15 p.m., the senator fainted as her staff placed the microphone in front of her, Lenihan said. Her Secret Service agents quickly surrounded the former first lady, and four people broke her fall, he said. "They took her down gracefully; let's put it that way," said Lenihan.
Among the attendees was Dr. Stephanie Pincus, a leading doctor in New York and professor at the University of Buffalo. "She has had a GI virus -- an acute gastrointestinal illness -- and she has been sick for at least a day and she needed some fluids; she needed to sit down and relax," Pincus told a reporter for television station WIVB. "She had clearly consulted with physicians beforehand," Pincus said. "She came in, she said she wasn't feeling well. She felt hot. She had stepped out to remove some of her heavier clothing, and it was just too much for her to continue." Pincus predicted the senator would feel "much better within the next 24 to 48 hours."
The junior Democratic senator from New York was speaking to the Buffalo Women's Taking Action Politically Fund -- or TAP -- a nonpartisan group that sponsors women running for public office. By the time of Clinton's arrival, shortly after noon, most of the approximately 125 attendees -- who had paid $100 apiece for their chicken salad and alcohol-free beverages -- had already eaten, Lenihan said.
Clinton did not go to a hospital, and no ambulance was called, sources said. "She received immediate medical attention at the site and is now proceeding with her schedule as planned," said the senator's press secretary, Philippe Reines.
Club general manager Vincent Tracy said Clinton appeared to have recovered by the time she left through a rear door, as had been planned. "She waved and said goodbye," he said ...

COMMENTS (2/1/05): Well it appears that running for office has little to do with the danger still theoretically facing Hillary Clinton until December 31, 2005 (adjacent to 2004). I can't call her public collapse a prediction fulfilled, partially fulfilled, or a close call. But it is obviously a "something" -- I'm not sure what -- and worth a few points. If the pretzel incident and Bush was a far cry from an assassination in 2002, bear in mind that predicting Bush's death wasn't all that novel or unusual with the Tecumseh Curse being a well-known factor in presidential deaths for those elected in zero years.
Predicting possible death for Hillary sometime in the ballpark of August 2004 is another matter altogether. There was no reason for anyone to project such an event aside from what my base 7 system revealed. This fainting spell must have looked rather dramatic as the small photo above shows. No doubt people were concerned or shocked. This is the first time anything like this has ever happened to the former first lady. I have a bad feeling this was not a coincidence that has happened five months after the end of August 2004 or "just one of those things." Rather, it may be the event marking the beginning of the end of Hillary -- unless the actual danger can be prevented. This, I had thought, might be an assassin. But yesterday's event demonstrates the potential for other dangers. Then again, this may be just another blip on the radar screen.
Continue or return to previous position.
The Second Millennium has been an age of Marian visions -- the most famous of these occurring at Fatima in 1917. The 21st Century will usher in a new era. Was God's plan for the world frustrated by the death of Princess Diana on August 31, 1997? (I have examined this possibility on Revelation.)
Visitors have not exactly been flocking to the Spencer estate in droves as many believed that they would. An August 18, 2003 update indicates that this will likely change during the seventh Althorp summer in August 2004 when Diana's apparition is witnessed by hundreds of spectators. Soon hundreds of thousands will flock to observe her flame-like image hovering above her grave on the tiny island where she is buried. Tears of joy and recognition will roll down their faces. At that time, she will impart a special message to the world.
Nostradamus foresaw this event as well.
Sacred ground, especially from Nostradamus' strict European Christian perspective, is usually burial ground: earth that has been consecrated by the Church or by a Christian ceremony made suitable for burial of the dead. Thus the "lady" whose voice is discerned coming from the ground is dead. Therefore, what we are experiencing in this quatrain is truly a miraculous event. A woman of tremendous importance, adored and loved in death as well as in life, returns to communicate a message to her worshippers and to the entire world.
Sadly, there will be an unfortunate and unintended reaction to this event. Many Christian priests and pastors will dismiss the miracle as a hoax or as being of diabolical origin. They will not believe that this lady's appearance has been made possible by the grace of God. The reigning pope of that time will also share his Protestant brothers' skepticism. The backlash this causes will be horrendous. Many will be angered, leading to deadly feuds between the churches and against the churches. Many "sole ones" (monks, priests) will be killed.
But this is not what the "divine voice" will wish. The people will dishonour the woman who exalted love above all other things. If Diana does return, listen -- do not judge.
Note: This prediction appeared in my manuscript, Nostradamus and the Final Age, but was withheld from this site until 7/2/99.
UPDATE (8/18/03): My apologies, but it should have been apparent to me that one last vector does exist for the Diana apparition prophecy and that is on or near the seventh anniversary of her death in August 2004. It is so obvious, but I was using other criterion to determine vectors for 2001-2003. Such an event really cannot happen much later than that ... I have my reasons for believing so and have related them on a new web page (link below). Obviously, too, this could impact the timing of the Nostradamus quatrain immediately below this presentation.
This shall be my final effort to attempt to date this event. If it doesn't occur in 2004, I don't know when it will. But I still believe it shall take place.
Read the secret known until now only by Cheiro, Jeane Dixon, John the Revelator, the architects of the Pyramid of Cheops, and the king of prophets ... Nostradamus! Be happy and confident in a new Revelation.
The following prediction is not base 7-derived but is solely an interpretation of Nostradamus' Quatrain 9.74. Its success or failure has no effect whatsoever on my personal system of prediction. It could occur any year during the July/August period (the Althorp season) or at any time when Diana's memory is venerated once more. I believe it has been coming to pass since reports of the inquest on Diana's death first broke, as we can see when looking at this same prediction on 2003 (Part Three). As the revelations increase, and as we approach the time of Diana's spiritual appearance, so too will the fighting in Iraq escalate ... and elsewhere.
Within the city of Fersod, homicide,
Again and again many oxen plow, not to slaughter,
A return again to the honours of Diana,
And to Vulcan dead bodies to bury.
Duplicate prediction from 2003 (Part Three) and updated on 1/9/04 to reflect past and current success and further project for 2004.
Fersod is translated as Sodom by commentators Edgar Leoni (1961) and Erika Cheetham (1973). Sodom, therefore, may stand for Saddam City. Saddam City lies in the southern suburbs of Baghdad. At this time, it is a major stronghold for the Iraqi shiites who seek to take over the governent and install a pro-Tehran Islamic regime headed by a young charismatic mullah named Muqtada al-Sadr.
The "homicide" is now clear: it is the almost daily attacks on US soldiers in Baghdad and elsewhere by Al Qaeda, Arab mercenaries from nations like Syria and Iran, Iraqi nationalists seeking the removal of "imperialist" forces, and pro-Saddam loyalists angry and emboldened by the capture of their leader. The "homicide" is also the terrorist bombings, not only of Western targets in Baghdad, but also Moslem mosques, UN embassies, etc.
The ultimate manifestation of this homicide against American soldiers and pro-American Iraqis seeking to establish a new government could even be a renewed bombing campaign against parts of Baghdad and other Iraqi cities. It could also represent new US air campaigns against nations supporting the insurgents: in particular, Iran and Syria, but possibly other nations we might not even be considering at this time.
If so, these air campaigns will be the most horrendous attacks thus far to be visited on any nation in the Middle East. The "dead bodies" will be committed to Vulcan, the god of fire, indicating massive air strikes.
As for the timing, Nostradamus provides us with a stunning clue: it will happen during a time when the memory of the late Princess Diana is brought into remembrance, even as it is now since Diana's personal aide Paul Burrell released the contents of a letter she wrote when fearing for her life and the start of an official inquest into her death. If one keeps an eye on the growing interest in the now emotionally-charged Diana case and the other on the worsening situation in Iraq, it is clear we are now in one of these periods Nostradamus calls a "return again to the honours of Diana." The ultimate manifestation of this season of honouring will occur when the apparition of Diana finally appears, most likely at the Spencer family estate at Althorp, but perhaps also at various places all over the world, triggering a new spiritual awareness.
It certainly does appear that this verse, Quatrain 9.74, is intimately related to Quatrain 4.24 -- the Vision at Althorp.
UPDATE (4/10/04): I have long believed, even before her wedding to Prince Edward in 1999, that the former Sophie Rhys-Jones, now Countess Sophie of Wessex, would one day be adored by the public and take the place of Diana. I thought it would happen much sooner than it has; but it appears that it is only beginning now. You can see my old 1999 interpretation of Sophie as England's "new Rose" on Pope John Paul II and the Rose Prophecy. This "other Diana," this Diana look-alike, is yet another manifestation of the "return to the honours of Diana." It is important to point out as well that one day she shall be an empress when the imperial seat of a post-war European empire is passed on from Jacques Chirac (Chiren) to Edward (Ogmios) sometime between 2012 and 2016. Note that her current ascendancy in popularity occurs as the "homicidal city" that was once Saddam's becomes even more homicidal.
UPDATE (4/24/04): Is Sadr City the real "Fersod?"
Much of Baghdad is now being called Sadr City -- the additional "r" bringing the name much closer to "Fersod" than "Saddam" ever did. There is no question that this city is "homicidal" and becoming more so everyday. Technically, one could also call Fallujah "Sadr City" as well, I suppose. As for "Diana," as can be seen, attention has returned to her in a number of ways since the new violence in Iraq began: from the inquest into her death, revelations revealed in one of her letters, look-alike Sophie of Wessex gaining in popularity, the recent televising of photos taken after Diana's fatal car crash in Paris seven years ago and the subsequent controversy for having done so, to a general international reflection on the life and death of the princess.
Regarding the bodies commended to Vulcan, the god of fire, this may refer to the coming "War of Alus" discussed in Quatrain 6.33 on 2003 Part Two (the Israeli-Arab conflict aspect) and 2003 Part Three (the US-Arab conflict aspect): a calamitous Middle East war that could result in hundreds of thousands dead, a few million if battlefield nuclear weapons are used against Syria, Iran, and even the Iraqi Shiites themselves.
Continue or return to previous position.
|NEW PREDICTION: 11/14/03 -- Iran, possibly with the aid of Iraqi Shiites, will invade the small Persian Gulf nations, especially Kuwait and Bahrain in August 2004. They will then proceed to attack and try to capture the Saudi Arabian oil fields. This will be the event that will force the United States to go to war against the Iranians. US naval forces in the region will engage Iran on the Arabian peninsula and in the Persian Gulf. It is very possible Russia will send air and naval forces into the region to support Iran militarily.|
|One especially fiercesome battle will take place at the Iranian stronghold of Abu Musa in the strait of Hormuz. Despite America's superior military strength, military resources on the island will be too well-protected. A protracted series of cruise missile attacks by sea and air will be countered by Iranian missiles and air power.|
Both US and Iranian ships will be severely damaged during naval combat. Events elsewhere in the Middle East will soon force the US to deploy a large part of its Gulf forces to the Red Sea and the eastern Mediterannean.
War involving Iran, Iraq, and North Korea is presented on this Dream Window. For a possible collaboration between Saddam Hussein and Cuban leader Fidel Castro, as well as Russian involvement in the war, see the Master Dream Window.
UPDATE (11/9/04): With yesterday's report that Iran is supporting Al Qaeda, based on U.S. military and intelligence services findings that Tehran is backing Iraqi Islamists tied to Osama bin Laden, we must consider any attack on the oilfields of Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait, and other small oil-producing states along the Persian Gulf -- and any terrorist attacks on the countries themselves -- as the work of a joint Iranian-Al Qaeda strategy. Thus, all Al Qaeda attacks would fulfill the first part of this prediction. Thus far, Al Qaeda has attacked oil and civilian targets in Saudia Arabia and Iraqi oil terminals on the Persian Gulf, and both Al Qaeda and Iraqi Shiites have attacked the Iraq-Turkey pipeline. Thus, this prediction is already PARTIALLY FULFILLED.
Geostrategy-Direct (12.2.04) - The U.S. military has made the stability of Saudi Arabia a top strategic priority in 2005. During his visit to Riyad over the weekend, U.S. Central Command chief Gen. John Abizaid said President George Bush set the agenda for Central Command for improved cooperation with Saudi Arabia. Over the past two years, Bush has made Iraq a leading U.S. foreign policy priority ...
Geostrategy-Direct (5.31.05) - There are growing signs that Al Qaida plans to attack economic infrastructure targets in the near future, U.S. intelligence officials say. The targets could include oil facilities in Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf states.
Saudi military forces currently have tens of thousands of troops protecting key oil installations in the kingdom.
With world demand for oil increasing, based in part on China's growing oil and gas usage, Al Qaida terrorists believe they can disrupt Western economies through bombing oil and other energy infrastructure.
Continue or return to previous position.
NEW PREDICTION: 3/28/04 -- Sometime in the August-October 2004 timeframe, in Jerusalem, Israeli forces and Palestinians will clash, wounding hundreds near the Dome of the Rock mosque on the Temple Mount. The cause may be the total collapse of the Southern Wall Temple Mount or a fire or bombing at the al-Aqsa Mosque that may be blamed on the Israelis. Many will die in the disaster.
It is also possible this will be the time the Dome of the Rock mosque is destroyed accidentally or intentionally by Israeli or US conventional missiles or accidentally by Syrian or Iranian conventional missiles fired at Jerusalem.
Violence erupts outside Jerusalem's al-Aqsa mosque
Mon Jun 6, 2005 07:48 AM ET
JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli police faced off against Palestinians throwing rocks at Jews outside Jerusalem's al-Aqsa mosque on Monday during Israel's annual celebration of its capture of Arab East Jerusalem 38 years ago. Police, who hurled several stun grenades as they moved into the area known to Jews as Temple Mount and to Muslims as al-Haram al-Sharif (Noble Sanctuary), pulled away from the shrine about an hour later after calm was restored.
Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said Palestinians had thrown stones at groups of Jews visiting the compound on "Jerusalem Day," which marks Israel's seizure of East Jerusalem in the 1967 Middle East war. Two Jews were slightly injured and one Palestinian was arrested, he added. Israel Radio said local Muslim religious authorities had appealed for calm as several hundred chanting Palestinians faced off against police and waved green Islamic flags outside al-Aqsa to avoid violence.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, commenting on the incident, told reporters in the West Bank that visits by right-wing Jews to the holy site, one of the most politically sensitive in Jerusalem, could have "dire consequences."
Jewish visitors regularly tour the compound, where two biblical temples once stood, but Israeli authorities do not allow them to pray there, enter al-Aqsa or hold any political demonstrations for fear of angering Muslims.
ULTRANATIONALIST JEWS STOP SHORT OF SHRINE
After the flareup at the shrine, the Temple Mount Faithful, a Jewish fringe organization, marched toward the compound but stopped about 50 meters (yards) short of its closed gate in an apparent bid to avoid a confrontation with police. "We will liberate the Temple Mount," said signs carried by the group, which numbered around 50 and sang the Israeli national anthem before turning back.
The marchers, who advocate building a new Jewish temple in place of al-Aqsa, also held aloft a cardboard coffin marked "disengagement," showing their opposition to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's plan to evacuate all 21 Jewish settlements in Gaza and four of 120 in the West Bank starting in mid-August.
In the Gaza Strip, a spokesman for the militant Islamic Jihad group said any harm to al-Aqsa would be met with "martyrdom operations, rocket firings, infiltrations and bombings."
A Palestinian uprising erupted in September 2000 after Sharon, Israel's opposition leader at the time, toured the compound. Violence has dropped since Abbas and Sharon declared a ceasefire in February.
Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of a future state they hope to establish in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip. Israel regards all of Jerusalem as its eternal and indivisible capital.

The trembling of the earth at Mortara,
The tin isles of St. George half-sunk,
Peace asleep, the war awakened,
Within the temple at Easter abysses opened.
NEW PREDICTION: 9/18/03 -- A massive earthquake strikes Mortara, thirty miles northwest of Milan. It will be accompanied by major flooding in southern Italy. The city of Florence will be submerged. The temblor will be so powerful that a seismic reaction will reach England herself, sinking Cornwall and the Scilly Islands. Most commentators agree that "the temple" referred to is Westminster Abbey, built upon the site of the ancient Temple of Apollo. The description of huge fissures cracking open at the location indicates that a major quake will also rock the city of London. The Mortara Quake should occur in September/October 2004. The London Quake should then follow at Easter 2005.
UPDATE (7/13/04): Is July's quake a possible precursor to the autumn 2004 temblor? It too struck in "northern Italy," as predicted, but there was no damage or large loss of life, no major flooding in southern Italy. It is reported that Venice was rocked by the power of the earthshock. It was felt in many places, but not as far away as England.
It is important to understand that I believe Nostradamus' Quatrain 9.31 above will one day be fulfilled. The date I have projected above is the one closest in the near future for such an event if it is to happen soon. It could be much later. Otherwise, the vector given should be applied to a very large quake in northern Italy (or more generally, Italy). This might have been the one, only two months early. We'll see.
Quake rattles northern Italy
Thursday, November 25, 2004 Posted: 0142 GMT (0942 HKT)
ROME, Italy (Reuters) -- A strong earthquake measuring about 5.2 on the Richter scale rocked northern Italy from the Tyrrhenian to the Adriatic seas on early on Thursday, causing panic and some damage. There were no reports of serious injuries in the quake, which was felt from Genoa in the west to Venice in the east and as far north as the border with France at Mount Blanc.
Civil protection officials in Rome said it was centred in the province of Brescia and there were initial reports of some damage to older buildings in towns along Lake Garda. The epicentre of the quake, which hit a few seconds before midnight, was near the towns of Treviso Bresciano, Tuscolano Maderno and Gardone Riviera in Brescia province, they said.
At least four people suffered minor injuries, according to initial reports. Cracks appeared in some buildings in Gardone Riviera as well as in the towns of San Felice del Benaco and Preseglie. A few abandoned farmhouses were reported to have collapsed. In Salo and other towns on the shores of Lake Garda, people rushed out onto the streets and fire brigades were checking the stability of the buildings. Several area hospitals were evacuated as a precaution.
Italy is very prone to earthquakes although they are more rare in the north than in the centre and south. Italy's last major quake was in 2002 when a school in the southern town of San Giuliano di Puglia collapsed, killing some 30 people, nearly all of them children trapped in a school.
The last major quake to hit northern Italy struck in 1976 in the Friuli region near the border with Slovenia. It killed 976 people and left 70,000 others homeless. One of the country's worst earthquakes hit southern Italy 24 years ago on Nov. 23, 1980, killing some 3,000 people.
Northern Italy Struck By 5.3 Magnitude Earthquake
Nov. 25 (Bloomberg) -- A 5.3-magnitude earthquake struck northern Italy at about midnight, the U.S. Geological Survey said. At least nine people were injured and some buildings were damaged, according to Italian civil protection officials.
The earthquake was centered in the town of Sirmione, at the southern end of Lake Garda, about 87 miles (140 kilometers) east of Milan. Temblors measuring between 5.0 and 5.9 on the Richter scale are considered ``moderate,'' according to the USGS.
Some buildings in the Lake Garda region suffered damage, said Guido Bertolaso, chief of civil protection in Rome. The quake was felt as far away as Genoa on Italy's western coast, to Venice on its eastern coast, he said.
A hospital in Salo, on the lake's southwestern shore, transferred patients to another facility about 10 kilometers away as a precaution, Bertolaso said. Two other local hospitals were evacuated, daily la Repubblica reported. Local radio in Salo reported that officials were erecting tents for residents who were afraid to return to their homes for the night.
Power outages were reported in the cities of Brescia and Milan, including one that struck a pediatric hospital, and some people in nearby towns refused to return to their apartments in taller buildings, la Repubblica said. It was the strongest earthquake in the Lombardy region since 1901, the paper said.
``There may be aftershocks,'' Enzo Boschi, president of the National Institute of Geophysics and Vulcanology told la Repubblica in an interview. ``The worst is over.''
Law enforcement officials in the town of Villanuova sul Clisi, about 20 kilometers east of the epicenter, urged people to leave their homes after the earthquake. Several schools were shut today in Salo, Italian television broadcaster Rai reported.
The quake's depth was about 9.3 miles underground, the USGS said. Two strong earthquakes shook central Italy's Molise region in November 2002, killing 30 people, including 27 children who died when their school building collapsed.
COMMENTS (11/28/04): Because quakes of this magnitude, 5.3, are so rare in northern Italy, I must consider this quake, if not the summer temblor that struck Slovenia and Italy too, as a PREDICTION PARTIALLY FULFILLED. However, it has certainly got some considerable ways to go to fulfill Nostradamus' dire forecast. Even so, the January 30, 2004 quakes that affected both northern Italy and southwest England at the same time do prove that his prophecy can come true. But when it does, the magnitudes will quite likely be off the charts (one would think) or at least at a high level 8 or a 9. These quakes may be foreshocks.
