Nothing about Lag B'Omer other than that's when it happened. Nothing about these 12 states either.

People sometimes read into my posts more than is actually there - sometimes, they're right, but not this time. I just noticed a lot of strange news lately.

On any given day wont many states have significant news?

Yes, and some of these are the run-of-the-mill type, but most of these are pretty extraordinary.

Doesn't anyone see the Yad Hashem in these events? The oil spill is Mida Kneged Mida punishment for the U.S. overwhelming love of oil vs. justice (especially regarding Yerushalayim). The horrible weather and subsequent dislocations/illegal immigration are a clear message about who should be allowed to live in what location (i.e. who can expand "settlements" in Eretz Yisrael). Lag B'Omer is the revelation of the Emes (sod)and a fitting time to start receiving these "wake up" messages.

Well, isn't this peculiar...
I linked here via someone sending me your post on North Korea and Gog of May 28th, 2009...
And, IMHO, the significance of Lag B'Omer is that it is all about the Jews...
Many significant events (specifically Times Square this time) happen on days that are associated with the Jews. The largest stock market point drops in History on the last two End-of-Shmitah Year erev Rosh Hoshana's; Obama choosing to make the "Hill he wants to die on" political issue with Israel whether or not Jews should build home for Jews in Jerusalem - about the ONLY issue the Secular State of Israel can be kind of sure that they are on G-d's side on this one... And Obama decides to curse Israel over this issue alone...
It's always all about the Jews.

And, vis a vis Gog and Magog from the other post - I have also read meforshim that say that this is Esav and Yishmael who will be fighting over Yerushalayim.
And... President Obama is the first King of the Most Powerful Empire on Earth, in history who is the perfect synthesis of Esav and Yishmael... Gog and Magog...
