There are some remarks in the video about the coding of numbers in the writings of Nostradamus. This was not completely explored in the documentary, and at the time I was still in the process of trying to completely decode the prophecies. It was recently completed, and I published the first half of my findings in the book, The Decoded Prophecies of Nostradamus (2012). It is available on Amazon (click here) and Barnes & Noble (click here). It took many years of research, and it is a timely subject. Rather than just trying to know the future (having a clear view is impossible), I explore the reasons how and why prophecy can exist. According to the naturalistic and materialistic view, it doesn't. But if it does, how does that change our world view of reality?
Right after I posted the above clip on youtube, Netanyahu decided to issue his "red line" speech, indicated where we may enter the point of no return when Iran will have the capability to develop a nuclear weapon. Israel really needs to keep its mouth shut when it comes to American foreign policy matters such as this one - a hardline talk urging war is just going to make Iran more stubborn in its pursuit of its nuclear program. If Israel wants a peaceful solution, it can do two things:
1. Instead of drawing red lines in the sand, talk about removing the lines of apartheid that divides Israelis from Palestinians. Remember Yitzhak Rabin? He was one of the few Israeli politicians who actually pursued a policy of peace. And he was assassinated by a right wing Israeli radical.
2. It should be pointed out that Israel will neither confirm or deny its possession of nuclear weapons. If Israel wants Iran to be open about its nuclear program, what about Israel being open about its nuclear program? Why the double-standard? Is Israel serious about peace, or does it want war?
Make no mistake: the risk of a nuclear weapon in the hands of a nation that does not keep religion separate from government is a dangerous situation. But I honestly have doubts that this is what Iran wants. What it wants is to exert more influence in its foreign policy in the Middle East. Remember the propaganda stories that Iraq was near to having a nuclear weapon? It was a completely false story.
But open warfare is not an option - Russia and China will not allow for that, the repercussions are too great. Netanyahu, apparently, is hoping Romney will displace Obama and start doing what the Israelis tell him to do. What the public does not realize is that war is not the only option, there are other methods and Obama is using them.
Critics of Iran point out that Iran has plenty of oil - why is it pursuing a nuclear energy policy? First, under international law, it perfectly has the right to do so. The fuel can be internationally monitored. Second - and this will be a surprise to most - it was the United States of America that started this program back in the 60s when Iran under the Shah was an American ally. It was legal then. It is legal now.
If people want peace, it must come from within. And I am not talking about meditation. Israel needs to erase the lines of pride in its view of the world - the Jewish pride that comes that says one race is superior to other races. It needs to reach across the border, and tear down the walls it has not only built around itself, but the walls around its world view. If it does not tear down those walls, those walls will no longer protect Israel. Those walls will make Israel a prison of its own narrow minded view.
As for the prophecies of Nostradamus, they extend into the 23rd century. There is time. Act now, and the disasters of the future will be lessened.
