SECOND U.S REPORTER - STEVEN SOTLOFF - BEHEADED
The beheadings are straight out of the Qur'an. Posted on 9/2/2014.
There is a Torah Code matrix about the beheading of American news reporter Steven Sotloff, but it isn't as statistically significant as that seen with James Foley, who was beheaded two weeks earlier. While I can find matrices that might look better, I sought and show below a matrix with two words (BEHEADED and REPORTER) at the same skip as the axis term, SOTLOFF. This kind of structure plays a major role in my selection of what appears to be encoded. ISIS often requests ransom. Not so here. ISIS showed the killer of James Foley then he announced his terms – we had to stop bombing them. We didn't, and so the fulfilled intent was to TAKE NO RANSOM. This phrase is shown in the open text. As for Islam and beheading, the James Foley link shows that beheading was taught by Mohammed in the Qur'an at verses 8:12 and 47:4.
If the focus of the matrix above is shifted left, retaining SOTLOFF, BEHEADED, and REPORTER, while leaving off TAKE NO RANSOM, then another phrase of interest arises in the open text, but it isn't a prediction and it was only seen in an a-posteriori manner that doesn't allow me to publish reliable statistics. What is seen is the advice that any Jewish mother should give her son (Sotloff was Jewish) about taking a job in a place like Syria while herds of terrorists are running around all over the place: Let him go return to his house lest he die in war (Deuteronomy 20:5). This is shown under the spreadsheets below. If magazines like Time are going to hire reporters to meet with terrorists, they should not employ Americans, and in particular they should not employ American Jews. If essential to cover the story, they should use people from sources like Al-Jazeera, although even that group has three reporters in prison in Egypt. They were, however, imprisoned for allegedly helping a Muslim terrorist organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, allied with Hamas.
STATISTICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE MATRIX. As per my standard protocol, no statistical significance is assigned to the axis term, here SOTLOFF at its 41st lowest skip in (wrapped) Torah. This is a much higher ELS rank than I normally publish, and the name only has 6 letters in Hebrew, which is shorter than most of the axis terms that I normally publish. However, the name does include three low frequency Hebrew letters (samaech tet and feh). As mentioned earlier, what I was looking for were key words at a special case skip. I also wanted meaningful open text material. I found both, but the final combined significance of everything a-priori must be reduced by a factor of 41 to accommodate the high ELS rank of the axis term. Before this reduction, odds against finding BEHEADED at a special case skip were about 358 to 1. Odds against finding REPORTER at a similar skip were about 2.7 to 1 (the word used here is only three letters and they are not rare like samech or tet). Odds against finding at skip +1 one of two spellings used for RANSOM were about 3.6 to 1. So the initial combined odds (about 3,526 to 1) only yield a final figure that indicates the matrix exists against odds of about 86 to 1. That's not very significant. HOWEVER, there are times when a short 3 ore 4 letter word can be found many times in the Torah by combining the end of one word with the beginning of the next. This is the case here with RANSOM. In these situations I want to know about the frequency of the term in the English version of the Torah. When I checked to see how often RANSOM was mentioned in the Torah, CodeFinder indicates that it was just 2 times - which is a lot lower than the figure that I used in the above calculation - 138 times for the term with 3 or 4 letter Hebrew spellings at skip +1. Since the open text does discuss ransom here, I offer the second spreadsheet. It indicates that the matrix really exists against odds of about 5,076 to 1. That's not as good as the Foley matrix in terms of statistical significance, but it does establish that this matrix is also statistically significant.
