YOSSI SHUSHAN KILLED BY ROCKET IN BEER-SHEBA, ISRAEL
WILL HAMAS PUSH ISRAEL TO OBLITERATE GAZA?
On the night of August 21, 2011 just after the Sabbath, Yossi Shushan was about to head for his pregnant wife and his two daughters as a rocket attack began from Gaza. He was killed by one of rockets in Beer-Sheba, Israel, the city that was once home of Abraham. On the matrix below, the axis term is YOSSI SHUSHAN. In the open text is BEER SHEBA. Yossi dwelt in the south of Israel. In the open text is DWELT IN THE SOUTH. The night of his death (21 AV/AUG 20) shares a letter with DWELT IN THE SOUTH. IN THE NIGHT is in the open text. Finally, also in the open text is UNTIL YOU BE DESTROYED. This is only one of several significant matrices that I found about him.
The map below shows the proximity of Beer-Sheba, Israel, to Yossi’s suburban home of Ofakim, Israel as well as to Gaza (where the rockets came from), Egypt (where most arms smuggling into Gaza enters its final leg), the West Bank, and Jordan.
On the matrix below, YOSSI SHUSHAN is shown at the minimum ELS of the name in Torah (skip -138). At the same skip is WAR. At double this skip is ROCKET, which is what the Palestinians used to kill YOSSI SHUSHAN.
EXTRACT FROM HAARETZ STORY ON AUGUST 21, 2011:
Victims of south Israel terror attacks laid to rest
Families mourn victims of Thursday's coordinated terror attack; man killed in Be'er Sheva rocket attack leaves behind two daughters, pregnant wife.
By Gili Cohen and Haaretz August 21, 2011
Some of the victims from Friday’s coordinated attacks in south Israel that left eight dead were buried on Sunday, as was Yossi Shushan, who was killed in a rocket-attack on Be’er Sheva Saturday.
Thousands attended Shushan’s funeral, who left behind two daughters and a wife in her ninth month of pregnancy. Shushan’s wife, Lilach, arrived in a stretcher, and asked Culture Minister Limor Livnat who attended the funeral, “How could they take Yossi away from me? Who is going to come with me now to give birth to my son?”
Livnat said at the funeral that Israel will strike back “with all its strength”, vowing that Israel would deter those that tried to harm it.
STATISTICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE FIRST MATRIX. The axis term (YOSSI SHUSHAN) is at its third lowest ELS. BEER SHEBA occurs 10 times in Torah. As such, there was about 1 chance in 58 that it would appear at skip +1 on the 527-letter matrix. The odds against either SOUTH or NEGEV (the dessert in the the south of Israel) appearing on the matrix at skip +1 were about 19 to 1. The date of his death (21 AV/AUG 20) was not statistically significant. There was about 1 chance in 1.14 that it would be somewhere on the matrix, however IN THE NIGHT appears in the open text, and that is when the rocket killed him. Odds against this phrase being there in the open text were about 41 to 1. Finally, the phrase UNTIL YOU BE DESTROYED is just one of many that would have worked. I used its frequency and that of YOU WILL SURELY DIE. The odds against one of these phrases being there were about about 18 to 1. The overall p-value of the combined matrix was rated at 3.01E-6 which means that it was found against odds of 331,647 to 1 before we consider issues like terms sought and not found, such as WAR and ROCKET which are seen on the second matrix.
STATISTICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE SECOND MATRIX. YOSSI SHUSHAN is shown at the minimum ELS of the name in Torah (skip -138). There are times when I want to see the most important a-priori key word in the open text, and other times when I prefer to see it at the same skip as the axis term. For example, very high frequency open text terms like ISRAEL (which occurs 591 times in Torah) or EGYPT (which occurs 365 times in Torah) don't add much to the significance of a matrix. However, lower frequency terms like BEER-SHEBA, seen on the first matrix are of interest. It only occurs 10 times in Torah. WAR occurs 36 times in Torah open text. As such, there was about 1 chance in 25 that it would be on a 328-letter matrix with ROCKET and YOSSI SHUSHAN. The total matrix value (with about 1 chance in 3 for this word for ROCKET to be there was thus about 1 chance in 81 (barely significant). However, the word for WAR here only occurs at the absolute skip of the axis term twice in Torah. Its parallel appearance to the axis term thus really stands out very well. The chance that it would be found on the matrix was only about 1 in 465, raising the total odds against the matrix appearing by chance to about 1,510 to 1. The matrix, in this form, is thus quite significant.
