A Hanukka Ge'ula?

R' Yaakov Nathan cites child prophet "Eli" as saying that Mashiah will be coming via shooting stars this coming Hanukka (as mentioned in his forum and by Mystical Paths).

Midrash.org has some more Hanukka-Mashiah comparisons:
The word Mashiyah (Messiah) is an acronym for Madliqin Shemonah Yeme Hanukkah (we light throughout the eight days of Hanukkah). (YY - מדליקין שמונה ימי חנוכה makes משיח.) What is the significance of this? By lighting the Hanukkah we perform three Miswoth (precepts) together, as follows:

When one enters one's home the Mezuzah is on the right, the Hanukkah is lit on the left, and the man who enters has Sisiyoth (fringes) on his Tallith Qatan. The Acronym for Sisith, Mezuzah and Hanukkah is Semah, who is the Mashiyah. (YY - ציצית מזוזה חנוכה makes צמח, another name for Mashiah.)

I can't believe you take this seriously. The child is brainwashed by his Meshichist parents.

Of all the news, I take it the least seriously. But, I do report on it.

That is True for those who see and listen and understand. For those who dont this is just stupid or a joke. Can you talk to the one who sleep deep? Can you tell him that the Morning has come? No. Because he lives in the Dark, watch the Night dreams still. For him there is dark and the Light and Sun and Day are just jokes or lies......

I think you should ask your friend Yaakov Nathan to be intellectual honest and admit that the whole thing was a mistake.
