Subject: More earthquakes and concern over possible Tsunami to hit Israel

Two earthquakes, which struck Italy this week, were "retribution" for the country's support of the UNESCO resolution disregarding the Jewish connection to Jerusalem, Israeli Deputy Minister for Regional Cooperation Ayoob Kara said.
"I'm sure that the earthquake happened because of the UNESCO decision," Kara, a member of the ruling Likud Party, wrote in a memo, Ynetnews website reported.
Voice of Judea Commentary:
These words coming from the Druze Knesset member did not ring well with his Italian hosts. Figure it takes a Druze MK to say what the Jewish Knesset Members never would have had the guts to say. Ironically, if there is a spiritual connection between earthquakes and denying the G-d given Jewish rights to Jerusalem, then Israel would be next G-d forbid to experience a quake. Indeed, how strange is it that Bibi and his underlings get sow huffy about UNESCO's denial of Jewish sovereignty over the Temple Mount. Who if not Bibi and his regime persecute Jews who try and pray on the Mount, so as not to antagonize the Arabs?
Ayoob Kara might not have realized it but the Jerusalem Talmud brings down the desecration of the Temple Mount and apathy about the destruction of the Temple as one of the four causes for earthquakes. It is brought down their in the name of Elijah, no less: When G-d looks down at the theatres and the circuses sitting comfortably, with tranquility and serenity, while His temple is destroyed he comes down to His world to bring destruction."
Kara's words are not far off. Kara in Hebrew means happen. Ma Kara? What has happened. In Kara's name is a symbol that we can learn what happened even from him. What is so obvious to him and to outsiders is often so distant from the eyes of the Jews. The Haftora that we read from Isaiah 42 on Breisheit - this past shabbat, as these events unfolded speaks of the opening of the eyes of the blind and about how the nations will see the great miracles and deeds G-d performs on behalf of His chosen people even before the Jews open their eyes and see it.
Ironically, the Israeli Druze politician was on a state visit to the Vatican when the quakes hit central Italy on Wednesday, killing one and injuring 10 people.
Earlier the same day, UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), passed a resolution criticizing Israel for its handling of the holy site in Jerusalem.
The document was adopted after heated debate over its wording, and particularly the Arabic names used in the document. Italy was among the nations voting in favor of the resolution.
An earthquake hit earlier in the month and yet a 4th earthquake registering 7.1 on the Richter scale hit Italy since then yesterday, 30.10.16.
The Rabbis learn that Jerusalem and Rome shall not rule simultaneously, and that when one rules the other shall fall, from the verse in the Bible depicting the eternal battle between Esav and Jacob which started in Rivka's womb, Breisheit 35;33, (see Rashi there). Thus the destruction near Rome (Esav) will hopefully come to symbolize the rise of Jerusalem and the building of the Temple speedily in the near future. The denial of the Jewish connection to Jerusalim by the international community at this time surely reflects the prophecy of the end of days when the nations will converge upon Jerusalem to contest the Jewish control of Jerusalem, (Zecharya 14).
War of Gog - we read in Haftarah Sukkot
We see the unfolding of the words of our prophets and of our sages who speak of the Moslems (Yishmael) and the Xtians (Edom)  fighting each other and then fighting against the Jews in Jerusalem only to suffer a mighty blow when G-d exacts revenge, for all of their affliction of the Jews throughout history, (see the Haftorah read on sukkot and Shabbat Hol Hamoed). And at that time the entire world will recognize G-d's existence through the Jewish victory and the great miracles. The verses in Yehezkel 38 speak of the great and final war, as does the Prophet Zecharya in chapter 14. Yehezkel the prophet warns that it will take 7 months to bury all of the dead from the Muslim and Xtain soldiers who will fall in and around Jerusalem.
How ironic that even the U.S. elections appears to be an unprecedented conflict between these two worlds of Islamic and Xtian forces. The Republicans heavily supported by pro-Israel Xtian forces while the Democratic Party and the Clintons are heavily connected to Islamic states such as Qatar and Saudi Arabia. Barack Hussein Obama's Islamic origin and connections are all too well known. And the latest scandal born out of Hillary's email connection to her Arab aid, Huma Mahmood Abedin now threaten to destroy Hillary's political career only days before the presidential elections. Abedin was born on July 28, 1976,[7] in KalamazooMichigan, to Syed Zainul Abedin (1928–93) and Saleha Mahmood Abedin.[4][8] At the age of two, she moved with her family to JeddahSaudi Arabia, where she was raised and lived until returning to the United States for college and later marrying Anthony Wiener who was a NY Congressman who is now being investigated for internet sex crimes. 
This showdown is all happening while the world converges on Syria and Iraq and as the world demands that Israel relinquish Jerusalem and all of Judea and Samaria.  This is all unfolding as earthquakes crush Italian cities around Rome and as the Russians send unprecedented fire power to the region; as Russia and China threaten that they prepare for World War III.
In the meantime the weather forecasters clear the beaches in Israel as they warn of a Tsunami effect on Israeli shores in wake of the last Italian quake.
Big things are coming down and the time is ripe for all Jews around the world to come home to Israel. Only in Zion shall the Jews find refuge, as the Prophet Yoel warns, (Yoel 3;5). Time to come home!
Psikta Rabati 36: Rabbi Yitzhak says: In the year that Moshiach will be revealed, all of the rulers of the world will be provoking each other (see recent  latest intensification of the conflict with Russia and America, and all of the other conflicts and wars around the globe and on Israel's northern border in Syria…)…and the King of Persia (Iran) provokes an Arab King (The Saudis and others including Iraq) and the Arab King (Saudis and other Arab regimes) seeks help from Edom (represented by Europe or US the leader of the pack). Then Persia destroys the world. The rest of the world shutters in fear and asks from where will we come and where shall we go. G-d answers them: My Children, don't be afraid! Whatever I have done I have only done for your sake. Why are you afraid. The time of your redemption has come! And this last redemption will not be like the redemption from Egypt when you had sorrow and further exiles afterwards. In this last redemption there will never again be sorrow and bondage under the nations again.
