PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM THIS WEEKEND AND THAT THE 'PA' DEMONSTRATE CONTROL
This Haaretz article I’ve titled ‘THE SUMMER WIND’ below sets the 'Basket of Summer Fruits' of Amos 8:2, on the table and with the Mississippi River overflowing I'd read Amos 8, paying particular attention to Amos 8:7 and then taking a look at Amos 9:4 and see who is commanding this "sword" and the similarities in Amos 8:7 and Amos 9:5.
The good news is with these latter day calamities, there is 'geluah/redemption', a "greater Exodus" from exile! Amos 9:11-15, Jeremiah 16:14-15, and Ezekiel 20:33-38
This article, 'SUMMER WIND' below, sets the table and is the first ‘event’ of a summer of turmoil that will 'heat up' until the UN declaration of a Palestinian state is announced at summers end that many YouTube videos and reputable sources are saying could correlate with the planetary intrusion of a 'brown dwarf star' that NASA has hidden as a 'blown cover as cover' comet called Elenin, due in late September that we will have more on below.
2.) It will be followed by a May 20, 2011 visit from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and talks with the US President and the Congress on May 24th http://www.jpost.com/LandedPages/PrintArticle.aspx?id=220151
3.) Couched in between will be a major speech by President Obama on the Middle East before leaving on a European trip on May 22, which just happens to fall on the first anniversary of the The Mavi Marmara. The Gaza bound flotilla upon which a deadly Israeli raid aboard resulted in the deaths of 9 Turkish activists on May 22, 2010.
4.) A ‘second Flotilla’, linked here, has been planned to occur during the third week in June. Could it fall on the summer solstice, June 21, 2011 and confirm the “Basket of Summer Fruit” of Amos 8:2? http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2011/may/12/eu-turkey-gaza-flotilla/
5.) On July 19, 2011 is the 17th of Tammuz that begins 21 days that are always ‘days of angst’ in regards to Israel and prophecy that culminate on the 9th of Av.
6.) The 9th of Av on the Hebraic calendar is the day both of Israel’s Temples were destroyed, that day falls on August 9, 2011 this year with still to be unfulfilled future “vengeance of His temple” scriptures are waiting to occur!
Haaretz Israel is God’s land, His name is written upon it, and spiritually it is a ‘Temple’ and with the UN declaration of a Palestinian State and the intrusion of the Elenin/brown dwarf star sitting between the 9th of Av and Yom Teruah, September 29, 2011, we have some ‘soul searching’ and preparing to do.
7.) On 26/27 September 2011, comet Elenin is to pass between the sun and earth darkening it for three days and fulfilling numerous scriptures.

THE SUMMER WIND
1.) On Friday, May 13 no less, event #1, the ‘Nakba Day’ protests begins. Read on:
'Israel remaining calm ahead of Nakba Day protests'
Top PA officials have evinced irony about the wide-scale preparations now undertaken by the IDF in advance of the days of protest, which will begin on Friday.
Hundreds of stickers were pasted on electricity poles in Ramallah on Wednesday, calling on residents to take part in Nakba parade demonstrations on Sunday. The stickers were written as though they were a letter sent from an exiled Palestinian refugee to the city of Haifa. "My beloved Haifa, I'll be with you soon," the stickers declared.
Not surprisingly, the announcements were signed neither by Hamas nor Islamic Jihad, but rather by the PLO's refugee department.
In internal Palestinian discourse, the Palestinian Authority still stands by its hard-line ideological stance demanding a right of return for 1948 refugees. At the same time, voices in Jerusalem and Ramallah urged that passions be kept in check during the three days of Palestinian commemoration of the Nakba - the establishment of the state of Israel regarded by Palestinians as a catastrophe.
Despite the media's inherent tendency to foster dramatic expectations, leaders on both sides do not believe that things will spin out of control during the days of protest declared by Palestinians. Top PA officials have evinced irony about the wide-scale preparations now undertaken by the IDF in advance of the days of protest, which will begin on Friday.
IDF preparations are not being undertaken on the basis of specific intelligence information. Instead, they are precautionary. In the unlikely event of demonstrations slipping out of control of Palestinian security forces, and turning into mass marches on Jewish settlements, or violent clashes at checkpoints, IDF soldiers will be deployed at key points along the West Bank, starting tomorrow.
Orders given to the security forces are clear: Soldiers are to do their utmost to refrain from firing live bullets and causing Palestinian casualties, which would possibly lead to an escalation of violence. Meanwhile IDF officers are in constant contact with their counterparts in the Palestinian security forces.
On Wednesday, coordination meetings were held among some IDF officers and PA counterparts. With regard to some possible flash points, security men from the two sides will try to work out in advance various tactical compromises, with the aim of allowing protestors to vent passion, without being dragged into direct confrontation with IDF soldiers.
Israel's assumption that the PA will prevent a confrontation is not based entirely on what Palestinian security men are telling IDF officers. Popular protests will serve the Palestinian cause, but a slide toward violence will harm it.
As things stand, the international community views the Hamas-Fatah accord with skepticism; outside observers have taken note of recent Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis, at Itamar and Jerusalem.
In the build-up toward the Palestinian diplomatic maneuver at the United Nations next September, the PA needs to demonstrate control, not lack thereof.
All these comments apply to circumstances in mid-May, but not to next September. Next fall, if broad international support for a Palestinian statehood declaration is not accompanied by any changes on the ground, things will be very different.
The gap between expectations and reality is likely to lead, as outgoing Shin Bet head Yuval Diskin hinted yesterday, to bitter disappointment that could explode into violence. Under such a scenario, the PA might not know HOW TO CONTAIN the protest; the hard fact is, it's not at all clear that IT WOULD WANT TO.
