ASTROLOGERS PREDICT BAD YEAR AHEAD
"A Tunisian astrologer who predicted the deaths of Princess Diana, Hamas leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin and Yasser Arafat says President (George W.) Bush will be killed by an assassin´s bullet in 2005."
"So seriously are Hassan al-Sharibi´s predictions taken in the Arab world that a similar prophecy about PLO leader Mahmoud Abbas has resulted in increased security around the candidate to replace Arafat as president of the Palestinian Authority."
"Abbas´ aides ´put a good deal of credence´ in the prediction, according to a source quoted by the Jerusalem Post."
"However, the paper tempered its report by saying critics label Sharibi as ´a quack with a flair who relies on logic and wishful thinking. After all, predicting Yassin´s assassination--he was Israel´s Public Enemy No. 1--and the death of Arafat were hardly major feats.´"
"Soothsaying is not unusual, or forbidden, in Islam, as it is in Christianity and Judaism. Muslim caliphs retained a court astrologer as early as the Eighth Century."
(Editor´s Comment: Fortune-telling is forbidden in Judaism!? That´s news. What do you call the Zohar and the Kabbalah?)
"Sharibi also predicted the sudden death of Saddam Hussein before his trial begins" in Baghdad.
"´The Middle East will be sitting on a volcano in 2005, and the situation in Iraq will get even more dramatic as Saddam Hussein is expected to die suddenly before his trial even starts,´ Sharibi said, according to a report of the United Press International."
Hindu astrologers are predicting more earthquakes like the one that triggered the massive tsunamis (Japanese for tidal waves--J.T.) in the Indian Ocean a week ago, Indian journalist Sudhir Chadda reported.
"The negative planetary alignment will cause many earthquakes all around the world of a magnitude that humankind has never seen before."
"According to the Hindu astrologers of Varanasi (formerly Benares--J.T.), Venus, Luna (Earth´s moon--J.T.) and Jupiter are pulling Earth away from the sun in a single direction, this baleful alignment could devastate the world in the next few months." (See the Jerusalem Post for December 28, 2004, "Arab astrologer predicts Bush assassination;" and India Daily for December 29, 2004, "Planetary alignment can devastate the world in the next few months."
