Negotiations with, and sanctions against Iran have failed to stop its quest for nuclear weapons. In fact, they only accelerated the drive at a time that Syria’s President Assad has been busy murdering his own people with Iranian weapons. As war between Israel and Iran rapidly approaches, Israel has been handing out gas masks to its people, concerned that with or without Assad’s fall, his chemical munitions may find their way into the hands of Al Qaida for use against Israel. On the matrix below the axis term is GAS MASK. At the same skip is WAR/TO FIGHT and ASSHUR (SYRIA). In the open text is AND HE SMELLED THE SMELL and IN THE LANDS OF YOUR ENEMIES. GAS MASK touches ISRAEL, and an ELS of CHEMICAL crosses WAR/TO FIGHT. FOR GAZA at skip +1 is on the line below IN THE LANDS OF YOUR ENEMIES. In a war with Iran, poison gas may be fired by rockets from Gaza.
STATISTICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE MATRIX. As per my standard protocol, no statistical significance is assigned to the axis term, here the only ELS in (wrapped) Torah for GAS MASK. At the same skip as GAS MASK are ASSHUR (a Biblical name for SYRIA) and WAR/TO FIGHT. The odds against either ASSHUR or SYRIA appearing on the matrix at a special case skip (+/- 1 or the absolute skip of the axis term) were the same as the odds against either WAR/TO FIGHT appearing on the matrix at a special case skip, about 16 to 1 for each pair. The odds against GAZA being on the matrix at skip +1 were almost 153 to 1. Neither ISRAEL nor CHEMICAL were statistically significant on 500-letter matrix, though the odds against ISRAEL being in a 48-letter box (and touching) GAS MASK were about 11 to 1. Although GAS conjures up the thought of something that often stinks, and although IN THE LANDS OF YOUR ENEMIES applies to Syria and Gaza, no statistical value was assigned to these open text phrases because they were only found a-posteriori. As such, what remains in the 500-letter matrix exists against odds of about 66,514 to 1.
