The Jewish people in Israel were hunkered down in bomb shelters over the sacred hours of the Shabbat while the State of Israel was preparing for a full-scale war. In preparation to expand the war with ground troops, the Israeli IDF was in full preparation to conduct a land based operation into Gaza called “Operation Pillar of Defense”. Yet, the Israeli public and the rest of the world renamed it, “Operation Pillar of Cloud”. This was in memory of the Pillar of Cloud that protected the Children of Israel in their epic escape from Egypt to the Promised Land.
Already Israel’s Iron Dome Defense System had intercepted over 300 incoming Palestinian missiles, as they selected only those 90% of the rockets that were targeting and threatening Israeli towns and commercial centers. This with the Israeli Air Force with selected targeting of military installations, the world began to understand the motto of this defensive campaign, “Operation Pillar of Cloud” as a symbol of the spiritual battles that were having to be played out in this 3-dimensional world.
The IDF obtained government approval to call up 45,000 reserves in addition to the previously called up 30,000 reserves already approved. With 75,000 troops preparing to enter the Gaza Strip, the countdown began. The hospitals in Israel were place on emergency footing and Emergency Rooms were turning away patients who were not on the critical list and in need of urgent medical care.
The Netanyahu Security Cabinet met on a urgent bases as over 550 Palestinian rockets were fired upon the Israeli cities during the prior three days and as two “Homemade M-75 missiles” landed in the vicinity of each of the Jerusalem, the capital of Israel and the commercial hub of Israel in Tel Aviv. Outlying towns of Mevaseret Zion, Motza Ilit, Beitar Ilit, Kibbutz Maaleh Hahamisha, Ora and Har Adar had their air raid sirens go off while dozens of rockets were fired towards South Israel at the towns of Beersheba, Ashdod, Hof Ashkelon, Ashkelon, Shear Hanegev, Ofakim, Sderot, Eshkol and Kiryat Malachi.
While the terrorists in Gaza continued their barrage of missiles towards Israel, the Israeli Air Force stood down for three hours to allow the visit of the Egyptian Prime Minister Hesham Kandil to Gaza City, take a photo op with a dead baby purported to have been killed by IDF missiles, but later was discovered to have been killed in Syria. Kandil also toured the hospital and met with Hamas officials seeking to broker a cease-fire.
When no results were apparent, the Israeli counter-offensive returned. In less than twenty four hours, on the Jewish Shabbat, an Iranian manufactured Fajr-5 long-range missile was aimed at Tel Aviv but intercepted by the Iron dome anti-missile battery.
In the wee hours of the morning at 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. of the Jewish preparation day for the Jewish Shabbat, on Friday, November 16, 2012, as the Israeli Air Force pilots were running strikes against Hamas terrorist positions in and near Gaza City, El Shaddai, was writing his signature in the heavens. The sun long quiescent suddenly changed and began a sudden explosion.
Over the last few months, many scientists predisposed that this long awaited 2013 Solar Max year was not going to be with the intensity that was heralded a few years ago, but the scientists are again proving to be dismayed with the independence of the power of the natural world. As Space.com reported:
Space.com – “The sun unleashed a monster eruption of super-hot plasma Friday (Nov. 16) in back-to-back solar storms captured on camera by a NASA spacecraft. The giant sun eruption, called a solar prominence, occurred at 1 a.m. EST (0600 GMT), with another event flaring up four hours later. The prominences was so large, it expanded beyond the camera view of NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), which captured high-definition video of the solar eruption.”
Earlier on Tuesday and Wednesday (Nov. 13 and 14), space weather conditions were ideal as they illuminated the Northern Skies with a geomagnetic storm that supercharged the Earth's auroras and created a spectacular northern lights displays for observers at high latitudes.”

Fortunately for Planet Earth, these two solar storms were cast out on the far side of the Sun and were not a threat to the international communication, navigational and power-grid system in the countries around the world. When aimed directly at Earth, the most powerful solar flares and eruptions can pose a threat to satellites and astronauts in orbit, and also interfere with communication, navigation and power systems on the ground.
The Sun is currently moving into the active phase of its 11-year solar weather cycle. The Solar Cycle 24 is expected by scientists to peak in 2013 between Chanukah (December 8-15, 2012) and Passover Seder on the eve of March 25, 2013. This is also within the time period when the ancient Mayan calendars calculated that Planet Earth will pass through the Center of the Galactic Universe, heralding the famous “End of the Mayan World Age” beginning on December 21, 2012.
Have we missed the cues? Here is the G-d of Creation who spoke thru the Prophet Zechariah:
Zechariah 12:1-2 – “The word of HaShem, Who stretches out the heavens and lays the foundation of the earth, and Who fashions the spirit of man within him: Behold, I am making Jerusalem a cup of poison for all the peoples all around, also Judah will take part in the siege of Jerusalem.”
As the Jewish Commentators in Stone Edition of the TaNaKh sadly state on this era of earth’s history:
Stone Edition TaNaKh: “Before the End of Days, the nations will besiege Jerusalem, and even force Jews to join them, but the enemies will be destroyed instead (Targum).”
Even today, the Leftist NGOs and anti-Semitic Jews centered in the capital of Jerusalem at Tel Aviv are not forces but willingly accomplices seeking to join forces with the enemies of Israel and seek her destruction. Will they repent and come to their sense, when tens of thousands of rockets and missiles come raining down over Tel Aviv from Hizbullah, Syria, and the Nations that surround Israel? Will they realize that the Muslim Brotherhood and the Hamas terrorist are not in love with them either? Do they understand that the G-d of Israel cannot defend them in Israel in times of distress if they fight against Israel?
The international negotiations were flying from one end of the Middle East to the other. As DEBKAfiles reported:
DEBKAfiles – “Friday night, Israel bombers struck government headquarters in Gaza City. Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi decided that Haniyeh must be continuously available at the end of a phone to lead the Hamas side in the ceasefire negotiations. This was not possible so long as the Hamas prime minister remained in Gaza. All of Hamas leaders have gone to ground for fear of targeted assassination by Israel. They have switched off their phones and electronic communications to avoid giving away their locations to Israeli surveillance. Haniyeh was even afraid to communicate with Cairo through the Egyptian military mission in Gaza.
In these circumstances, Morsi and Erdogan’s were prevented from getting their ceasefire mediation bid off the ground. Moving Haniyeh to El Arish put a Hamas negotiator in place to lead the give-and-take for a truce. Our sources have not discovered if he is still there or has moved back to Gaza.
The Turkish prime minister brought a secret passenger, Saleh Aruri, formerly of the Hams military wing in the plane to Cairo Saturday. Aruri had spent 15 years in an Israeli prison for terrorism and murder until he was released on Oct. 18, 2011 in the prisoner exchange for the Israeli soldier Gilead Shalit on condition he went into exile.
Turkey granted him asylum and its intelligence agency MIT gave him free rein to set up an operational command in Istanbul for Hamas terrorist networks on the West Bank. On arrival in Cairo, the Turkish prime minister put Aruri in charge of the contacts with Haniyeh.”
As Biblesearchers Reflections commented on Zechariah 12:1 in the article titled, “The Burden of the L-rd against Israel”:
Biblesearchers Reflections – “The Lord of hosts very succinctly states His purpose: this is an oracle against Israel. Let us not be deceived, many have seen the great suffering the Jewish people have gone through, the Holocaust, the multiple wars where the Moslem nations around them have sought to exterminate or “drive them out to the sea” and have said, “Enough is enough”. Then the Lord of hosts states, “Here is another oracle or “burden” that will be placed upon you.”
The facts are, the nations of the earth have intensified their anti-Semitic feelings against the Nation of Israel over and over the last fifty years. Has there not been only one time that the United Nations had a favorable legislation for the Jewish people? That was in the year of 1947, when the nations of the world voted for the Jewish people to have their own homeland. Granted that only 10% of the land that was chartered for them by the League of Nations was eventually given to them, but even so the vote was favorable.
Since then, there has not been any nation that has been under the severest condemnation by vote after vote as the Nation of Israel. There has not been a nation that has had to fight as many wars for its own national survival as the Nation of Israel. There has not been a nation that what little land was given for her own homeland that has been demanded over and over to partition; give up to another people whose sole purpose is to seek the extermination of the Jewish people. Yet the Burden of the Lord has been upon Israel.
With this the Lord of hosts states His credentials. “I am He that created the Universe and stretched out the heavens like a carpet into the vast reaches of infinite space. I am He that formed the iron core gyro-scoping in the center of the earth and laid a mantle on top of it. This is the Lord of hosts and with His creative power, He says, Trust me!”
And so now the G-d of Israel says, “Watch Me!”

The world around is quickly becoming transformed into a polarizing a world of two choices: for G-d or for Satan, for Goodness or for Evil, for Restoration of All Israel or against the restoration of the House of Israel and the House of Judah. As it comes to the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel, our naturalized homelands as we know them to be will soon disappear and we will have only one choice left, assimilate into Clinton’s global village or return to our ancestral tribal homelands in Israel. The prophets have a lot to say as to the fate of each of these Lost Israelites.
This comes to one sobering conclusion, if you are a descendant of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel and you despise your brothers, the Jews, you will be left cohabitating with peoples who will have a genetic hatred to you even though you think you want to be a part of them.
So today, the G-d of Israel is whistling or coaxing you to come back to the brotherhood of Klal Yisra’el (All Israel). To learn more about this redemptive process, you are Welcome to Contact “Kol Ha'Tor”,the Voice of the Turtledove. Here is a joint Orthodox Jewish and 10-Triber Mission to bring awareness of the imminent fulfillment of the Biblical Prophecies regarding the Redemption of all Israel (12 Tribes Re-conciled and Re-United). This super Event of all Times will entail establishing in the region of Shomron (the Ancient Bible Heartland of the Patriarchs) and the Judean Wilderness into a new homeland for the Return of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel when All Israel will finally be redeemed.
