Could 'Frankenstorm' be a sign from God?
'When we put pressure on Israel to divide their land, we have record-setting events'
Could the “Frankenstorm” – the feared combined forces of a wintery land storm with Hurricane Sandy – actually be a message from the Almighty?
Journalist and White House correspondent William Koenig explained to WND that some of the United States’ most catastrophic storms and events have correlated closely with the nation’s God-defying attempts to divide the land of Israel.
“When we put pressure on Israel to divide their land, we have enormous, record-setting events, often within 24 hours,” Koenig told WND. “Hurricane Katrina, 9/11 – we have experienced over 90 record-setting, all-time events as we have acted against Israel. And the greater the pressure on Israel to ‘cooperate,’ the greater the catastrophe.”
Some of Koenig’s examples are startling.
Hurricane Katrina, the deadliest and costliest hurricane in U.S. history, hit Aug. 29, 2005; the storm began the day President George W. Bush congratulated Israel for evacuating Gaza and called on the Israelis and Palestinians to move onto his two-state plan.
Koenig also pointed to the 1938 “Long Island Express,” the most powerful, deadliest and costliest hurricane in recent New England history, a storm that killed more than 600 people and resulted in property damage that in today’s dollars approaches nearly $5 billion.
“Leading up to the 1938 event, there was tremendous persecution of the Jewish people, a build-up to the Holocaust,” Koenig related. ” According to author John McTernan, the eye of the hurricane came directly over Camp Siegfried and Adolf Hitler street in Long Island. The powerful storm occurred 38 days after Camp Siegfried was the center of the largest Nazi rally outside of Germany.”
In fact, in his book “Eye to Eye: Facing the Consequences of Dividing Israel,” Koenig points out that nine of the 10 costliest insurance events in U.S. history followed dramatic calls by U.S. officials for Israel to make land concessions in bids for peace with its neighbors. He points out with startling detail how six of the seven costliest hurricanes in U.S. history followed such events. He points out how three of the four largest tornado outbreaks in U.S. history also followed such developments.
Now Hurricane Sandy is poised off America’s Atlantic coast and threatens to become one of the worst storms in decades. The hurricane has been dubbed “Frankenstorm” by some outlets because it’s expected to reach the coast close to Halloween.
But how does “Frankenstorm” tie into America’s stance on Israel?
“Both political parties have now accepted, specifically, a two-state solution to peace in the Mideast, dividing Israel’s land between Israel and a Palestinian state,” Koenig told WND. “And now this hurricane story is going to disrupt political campaigning and possibly affect voter turnout for both parties.
“From a biblical perspective, the land isn’t to be divided, parceled out or negotiated away … period,” Koenig said. “That’s the land God gave to Israel.
“People say they want peace,” he continued, “but it all comes down to this: No earthly leader has the right to partition Israel, because that was God’s gift to Abraham and his descendants.”
