Syrians, Jordanians Protesting in Biblical Israel

Syrians are protesting in Daraa and the Syrian army is shooting at them.

I didn't realize earlier that Daraa is really Edre'i (אדרעי) from Tanach, where the Israelites defeated Og and which was later given to half of the sons of Machir Ben Menashe.

There are also protests in Amman, Jordan where many were injured.  While much of Jordan was part of Biblical Israel, the rest of Jordan (that belonged to Ammon, Mo'av and Edom) was only promised to Israel in the days of Mashiah, may they come quickly.

Now if only they were protesting that they want to be part of Israel...

Yaak,

This unrest of Ishmael is astounding. We are left unsure of what to make of it.

May we hear good things. Shabbat shalom,

HaSephardi

The Midrash Rabboh Naso refers to 3Moshiachs: Ben David,Ben Efraim and BEN MENASHE(+Eliyahu=The 4"Craftsmen").The peirushim say that Ben Menashe is sourced from Machir ben Menashe. Moshe with a nun = Menashe, and it is likely that the Moshiach ben Menashe of the Midrash is in fact Moshe Rabbeinu: 'Moshe v'trein Meshichin' - Moshe and the 2 Moshiachs. The fact that this current agitation in Syria is taking place in the plot of Machir ben Menashe, is hopefully arousing Moshiach ben Menashe ie Moshe, the Nun Shaarei Bina, Shavuos (the kli for Nun Sharei Bina), the counting of the Omer, Armilus and Bilom, all this having started on Purim.
