THE BEST WAY TO DEFEAT ISLAMIC TERRORISM
Joint Forces Staff College course advocated nuking Mecca. Is there a better alternative? ( 5/13/2012)
Figure 1 above: Damage rings around downtown Mecca for a 21-kiloton, Nagasaki type atomic bomb. The matrix about destroying Mecca is discussed in the text. The spreadsheet used to calculate the statistical significance for the matrix is below.
FIGURE 1: POSSIBLE DESTRUCTON OF MECCA. On Figure 1 the axis term is the second lowest skip in wrapped Torah for a 9-letter ESL that means TO DESTROY MECCA. An ELS for WAR shares the letter hey with Mecca. Parallel to the axis term is USA. in the open text and also sharing a letter (lamed) with WAR is THE LORD HAS SENT US TO DESTROY IT. However, it must be emphasized that in Judaism, a negative prophecy does not have to come true if the subject repents and reforms. The best example of this in the Bible is when Jonah predicted the destruction of Ninevah. The people of that great city put on sackcloth, repented, and (much to Jonah's chagrin) were spared. While that is true, as extracts of the article below show, patience with Islam is running thin in the West. Nobody it seems, not even a Muslim in a mosque, is safe from Islamic terrorism.
STATISTICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE MATRIX ON FIGURE 1. As per my standard protocol, no positive statistical significance is assigned to the axis term, the second lowest ELS of DESTROY MECCA. The ELS for WAR was on the 272-letter matrix against initial odds of 51 to 1. USA was not significant. An ELS of it was easier to find than calling a coin toss correctly. While the full phrase THE LORD HAS SENT US TO DESTROY IT was found a-posteriori, I was looking for 6 synonyms for DESTROY and that was located in the open text against odds of about 140 to 1. Overall, the matrix was found against odds of about 6,333 to 1 after I downgraded the value of combined terms due to the Axis term ELS rank of 2. The matrix is judged to be highly significant - enough so that I hope Muslims will pay attention to the threat outlined, and the archeological action that they can back to prevent it. Now let's examine the thrust of the Fox story about what has been taught at our Joint Forces Staff College:
FoxNews.Com article entitled Military Class Suspended for View on Islam.
WASHINGTON – A course for U.S. military officers has been teaching that America's enemy is Islam in general, not just terrorists, and suggesting that the country might ultimately have to obliterate the Islamic holy cities of Mecca and Medina without regard for civilian deaths, following World War II precedents of the nuclear attack on Hiroshima or the allied firebombing of Dresden.
The Pentagon suspended the course in late April when a student objected to the material. The FBI also changed some agent training last year after discovering that it, too, was critical of Islam.
The teaching in the military course was counter to repeated assertions by U.S. officials over the last decade that the U.S. is at war against Islamic extremists — not the religion.
"They hate everything you stand for and will never coexist with you, unless you submit," the instructor, Army. Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley, said in a presentation last July for the course at Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk, Va. The college, for professional military members, teaches midlevel officers and government civilians on subjects related to planning and executing war.
Dooley also presumed, for the purposes of his theoretical war plan, that the Geneva Conventions that set standards of armed conflict, are "no longer relevant."
He adds: "This would leave open the option once again of taking war to a civilian population wherever necessary (the historical precedents of Dresden, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagasaki being applicable...)."
His war plan suggests possible outcomes such as "Saudi Arabia threatened with starvation ... Islam reduced to cult status," and the Muslim holy cities of Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia "destroyed."In what he termed a model for a campaign to force a transformation of Islam, Dooley called for "a direct ideological and philosophical confrontation with Islam," with the presumption that Islam is an ideology rather than just a religion. He further asserted that Islam has already declared war on the West, and the U.S. specifically. "It is therefore illogical" to continue with the current U.S. strategy — which Dooley said presumes there is a way of finding common ground with Islamic religious leaders — without "waging near 'total war,'" he wrote.

SO HOW COULD FINDING THE ARK OF THE COVENANT PREVENT A NUCLEAR WAR OR CHANGE MUSLIM BEHAVIOR? If you're looking for magic in the box that once held (and probably still does hold) the Ten Commandments, while I won't dismiss the portrait painted in the movie INDIANA JONES AND RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, you may be in for a surprise. The real treasure pertaining to the Ark is not the Ark itself. Rather, if I'm right, the main treasure derives from finding the Ark at the coordinates indicated by Torah Code ELS Maps.
WHAT IS AN ELS MAP? Normally a Torah Code matrix has an axis term (the first term sought) and a-priori key words as well as a-posteriori terms noticed after the matrix is produced, but there is no specified relative position for all terms. An ELS Map is much harder to find because of a-priori relative term positioning requirements. Key site names are encoded in such manner as to have the angles between Jerusalem, Egyptian towns or sites, and the suspect Ark site exactly correspond to actual course headings on real world maps.
Some of the maps (like ELS Map 1 shown on Figure 2 below) are based on relatively small skips in Torah. ELS Map 1 has just 306 letters between each letter of Ark of the Covenant. The matrix starts at Numbers 32:21 Letter 25 and ends at Numbers 34:8 Letter 25. It spans only 3,414 letters (about 1%) of the Torah's 304,805 surface text. So, if the Ark is where the map indicates, it might just be an amazing coincidence. Muslims would still argue that the Jews corrupted the other 99%, or at least the part where Isaac (4 letters in Hebrew) is the chosen one rather than Ishmael (6 letters in Hebrew). They would still argue that the Qur'an is the replacement or correction for the Torah.
But there is more than just one ELS map. Those based on small skips for the axis term (first term chosen) would not be a problem for the Muslims. But some of the maps are based on very large skips where the computer must make more than one pass through the Torah's 304,805 letters to find the maps. These maps, based on equidistant letter spacing, would have been destroyed if the Jews had replaced a 6-letter Ishmael with a 4-letter Isaac. This means that if these maps convert to physical reality on the ground, the Muslim claim that the Torah was corrupted is proven wrong. Islam's reason to war against those Jews and Christians who accept the Torah would immediately collapse like a house of cards. The full list of ELS Maps is given at the end of this article. If you click on the ELS Map numbers in the left column of the Table, you see see each of the maps.

WHAT DOES THE QUR'AN SAY ABOUT THE ARK OF THE COVENANT? The Qur’an (2:248) states the following: "Their prophet said to them, “The sign of his kingship is that the Ark (of the Covenant) will come to you, containing serenity from your Lord and certain relics left by the families of Musa (Moses) and Harun (Aaron). It will be borne by angels. There is a sign for you in that if you believe."
What the above means is that theoretically, it is possible to interest Muslims in Egypt to look for the Ark. However, the problem is that if they find it where the ELS Maps predict, as was indicated above, they challenge the validity of some of their strongest beliefs.
WHY IS THE LOCATION INDICATED PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT? While most rabbis have traditionally believed that the Ark is hidden under Temple Mount in Jerusalem, or that it was taken to Babylonia under Nebuchadnezzar when he conquered the city in 586 BCE, the location indicated by the ELS maps is in the area where locals believe a pillar of fire blocked the Egyptian Army from the Israelites (Exodus 14:24) just before Moses (with God's help) split the sea and then drowned the Egyptian Army. It was thus the site of the greatest miracle ever witnessed by masses of humanity. If the Egyptians are present when the Ark is uncovered there, the psychological impact would be much greater than if discovered elsewhere in Egypt (or anywhere else).
Zechariah 14:16 to 14:19 speaks of an incredible occurrence, generally related to the future coming of the Messiah. He predicts a time when Egypt will come to Jerusalem to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Sukkot (the Feast of of Tabernacles), Clearly this would require an enormous change of heart on the part of the Egyptian people - a change like that which would likely occur if the Ark is found at the site in question in full view of Egyptian military and archeological observers. The site is, in fact, only about a mile from an Egyptian military facility (see Figure 6 below). The prediction in Zechariah is as follows:
Zechariah 14:16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations that came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
17 And it shall be, that whoso of the families of the earth goes not up unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, upon them there shall be no rain.
18 And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, they shall have no overflow; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the nations that go not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that go not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
WHY WOULD THE ARK GO TO EGYPT? Jeremiah was the prophet in charge of the Ark before it disappeared. He finished his life not far from the area pointed to by the ELS maps. After Nebuchadnezzar slew the sons of King Zedekiah before his eyes, and then put out Zedekiah's eyes before taking him in fetters to Babylon (Jeremiah 39:6-7), the remnant of Judea not taken into captivity came to Jeremiah and asked him to pray to the Lord to tell them where they should go (Jeremiah 42:1-3). Jeremiah didn't give them an answer for ten days (Jeremiah 42:7). This may be because the Lord was not inclined to deliver a speedy answer. But it may also be because the communication device, (i.e. the Ark) that Jeremiah needed to pray before, had already been whisked away to a safe distance. The location could have been one that would take up to five days each way to reach and return from. This is not likely to fit the description of any place near or under Jerusalem that might be accessible by tunnel.
Jeremiah's answer to his countrymen about where to go was not what they wanted to hear:
...Thus says the LoRD of hosts, the God of Israel: If you wholly set your faces to enter into Egypt, and go to sojourn there, then it shall come to pass, that the sword, which you fear, shall overtake you there in the land of Egypt, and the famine, where you were afraid, shall follow hard after you there in Egypt, and there you shall die. (Jeremiah 42: 15-16)
Azariah the son of Hoshaiah, Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the proud men accused Jeremiah of speaking falsely about the Egyptian prohibition (Jeremiah 42:2).
But Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces, took all the remnants of Judah, that were returned from the all the nations whither they had been driven to sojourn in the land of Judah; the men, and the women, and the king's daughters, and every person that Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard had left with Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, and Jeremiah the prophet, and Barach the son of Neriah; and they came into the land of Egypt; for they hearkened not to the voice of the LORD; and they came even unto Tahpanhes. (Jeremiah 43:5-7)
Despite his warnings to kings and countrymen, Jeremiah could not turn his back on his wayward people. He hoped to reach them, even in Egypt, and convince them to turn back. But if he were to succeed, he would need a miracle. It would make sense to have the tool required for that miracle (the Ark) to be kept relatively close (but not close enough for wayward Jews to seize). That way if his countrymen repented, they could return with the full protection of God as God had promised:
Be not afraid of the king of Babylon, of whom you are afraid; be not afraid of him, says the LORD; for I am with you to save you, and to deliver you from his hand. And I will grant you compassion, that he may have compassion on you, and cause you to return to your own land. (Jeremiah 42: 11-12)
Where did Jeremiah go to in Egypt? We saw mention above of Tahpanhes in Jeremiah 43:7, but in Jeremiah 44:1 we read the following about Midgol (shown on Figure 4):
The word of that came to Jeremiah concerning all the Jews that dwelt in the land of Egypt, that dwelt at Migdol, and at Tahpanes, and at Noph, and in the country of Pathros…
Figure 3: Satellite map showing the general area, east of the Suez Canal, where the Ark is believed to rest in accordance with numerous ELS Maps. The photo of me was taken in 2006 within a half mile of the suspect Ark site, however Egyptian authorities did not permit me to use any equipment to pinpoint the exact site.

JEREMIAH'S DEATH IS ENCODED FOR THE AREA WHERE MOSES SPLIT THE SEA
So there was a Jewish community at Migdol. Now with respect to this name, we must be cautious. Migdol in Hebrew means tower. The meaning is similar in Arabic, though it could also mean fort. There were many of these forts/towers in Egypt, usually distinguished by the name of the pharaoh who constructed it or by some local circumstance. However, the area shown by the ELS Maps on this site is in the area of Baal Zephon. Baal Zephon is covered elsewhere on this web site, however, in Numbers 33:7 we read the following of the Exodus route:
They journeyed from Etham and turned back before Pi-hahiroth, which is before Baal- Zephon, and they encamped before Migdol.
Therefore, Jeremiah traveled to Egypt and spoke to the Jewish community of Migdol, which may have been close to my suspect Ark site. If he wanted to stay in touch with the Lord, even without the Codes, we now have reason to suspect that the Ark was taken to this area in Northern Sinai.
Figure 4 from the MacMillan Bible Atlas shows a popular suspect site for Migdol. British Admiralty Chart 56100 shows several ruins and one fort in the area today. All these lie between 31 degrees 1 minute and 31 degrees 4 minutes North; 32 degrees 30.5 minutes and 30 degrees 40 minutes East, ranging from about 21 to 29 nautical miles (24 to 33 statute miles) from the primary Ark site in my research. An Arabian camel go travel up to 100 miles in a day, so these distances would certainly be within easy reach of Jeremiah if he preached in such a Migdol and wanted to pray before the Ark. It lends plausibility to the idea that the Ark was taken to the site indicated by my Codes research.
How did the life of Jeremiah end? There seems to be unanimous belief that he died in Egypt, with some speculation in Funk and Wagnall's New Encyclopedia (unproven) that he may have been murdered by Jewish zealots. On August 3, 2008, the Israeli newspaper HaAretz published an article entitled Archeologists unearth proof of plot to kill Prophet Jeremiah. What is revealed in the Codes? The site of Jeremiah's death is quite clearly given there as the site in Egypt where the pillar of cloud and fire blocked the Egyptian army, and where Moses split the sea. This is precisely the area that the Codes reveals the Ark to be (see the Figure 5 below).
Figure 5: Jeremiah's death is encoded in the area near the the suspect Ark site.

THE FAILURE OF ISLAM, AND ITS LAST CHANCE FOR PEACE. One of the greatest rabbis in Jewish history was Moses Maimonides. He lived between 1135 and 1204 CE. While Maimonides never accepted Mohammed as a legitimate prophet, in his authoritative work of law the Mishneh Torah (Hilkhot Melakhim 11:10–12), Maimonides indicated Mohammad was part of God's plan of preparing the world for the coming of the Jewish Messiah: "All those words of Jesus of Nazareth and of this Ishmaelite [i.e., Mohammad] who arose after him are only to make straight the path for the messianic king and to prepare the whole world to serve the Lord together. As it is said: 'For then I will change the speech of the peoples to a pure speech so that all of them shall call on the name of the Lord and serve him with one accord' (Zephaniah 3:9)."
Obviously, almost all the prophets found in a Christian version of the Bible (Old and New Testaments) were Jewish, but the general Jewish view is that God allowed some gentiles to have a relationship of sorts with Him so that the they could not claim that they were ignored. There was a fuzzy picture of truth given to these men. It was then up to them or their followers to bring the word into focus. An example of this sort of guidance is found in the Qur’an below:
"To each among you God prescribed a Law and an Open Way. If God had so willed He would have made you a single People, but (His plan is) to test you in what He has given you: So strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to God; It is He that will show you the truth of all things that you now dispute." (Qur’an, Ali translation, the Table 5:51)
Islam has utterly failed the test given to it above. That statement should be compared with the words of Osama Bin Laden, found after his death. In a letter dated May, 2010, Bin Laden wrote of “"the need to cancel other attacks due to the possible and unnecessary civilian casualties" in Muslim countries. He also expressed grave concern about his terror network losing the sympathy of Muslims and described operations killing Muslims as "mistakes," adding it was important that "no Muslims fall victim except when it is absolutely essential." All this relates back to what I wrote at the start of this article. Patience with Islam is running thin in the West. Nobody it seems, not even a Muslim in a mosque, is safe from Islamic terrorism.
Sooner or later, even if our American Government opposes the use of weapons of mass destruction, members of our military may be pushed beyond their breaking point by the incessant attacks on everyone being carried out in the name of Islam. Put enough people together like Staff Sergeant Robert Bales (who slaughtered 17 people in Afghanistan) or Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley, of the Joint Forces Staff College, with nuclear weapons, and Mecca is toast. Ditto to all its powerful Muslim allies.
In Genesis 16:12 it was predicted that Ishmael would be "a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him." Who can deny the truth of this prophecy? So what's a Muslim to do? Start living up to claims that Islam is a religion of peace (despite its common sign of the sword). Respect the fact that God/Allah chose to give us different religions, laws, and customs, and stop killing us for that fact. But beyond this, take a real chance to know the ultimate truth. Study the ELS Maps on the table below, and then demand that the site indicated be openly and thoroughly explored by Egyptian and International authorities. If nothing is there, then you can have a good laugh. But if the Ark is there, remember that the Qur'an predicted it would be found. Understand that the maps used to find it were written with the finger of God, and stop fighting His will.
Shalom Aliechem, Asaalam alaykum - Peace be with you.
