More on N. Korea / 17 Heshvan
Hashem1.net put out an interesting post with a lot of interesting tidbits on North Korea:
- It used to be called Goguryeo
- Kim Jong Il = קים ג'ונג איל
- The Zohar mentions a war on Rome from a nation that is on the "edge of the earth" - a description that the Pacific Ocean fits
- more interesting info
Also, R' Dov Bar Leib talks about the 17th of Heshvan being an interesting day this year - for Kabbalistic reasons (not to mention the start of Noah's flood) - and the night of the US election.
