Death of Last Ottoman Princess - Another Geula Sign
ANKARA, Turkey — Neslisah Osmanoglu, an Ottoman princess who married an Egyptian prince and was twice forced into exile when both royal households were abolished, has died. She was 91.
Neslisah Sultan, or Princess Neslisah, died in Istanbul on Monday, according to her nephew, Abdulhamid Kayihan Osmanoglu. He didn’t give the cause of death, but new reports said it was a heart attack. A funeral ceremony was being held Tuesday for the princess, who was the oldest member of the Ottoman dynasty.
According to Wikipedia:
After the recent deaths of Prince Burhaneddin Cem (2008) and Prince Ertuğrul Osman (2009), she was also the last surviving member of the Ottoman Dynasty to have been born during the Ottoman era.
I've mentioned before that Rabbeinu Bahya says that the Kittim are from the children of Yavan and it is possible that it is a hint to the evil Kingdom of Yishmael.
Rabbeinu Bahye lived from the mid-13th century until 1340. The Ottoman Empire began in the year 1299. It is highly likely that the evil Kingdom of Yishmael that Rabbeinu Bahye refers to is the Ottoman Empire.
The end of the verse says, "and he also shall come to destruction". Rashi, Ibn Ezra and others say that this refers to the Kittim.
This verse (verse 24) is the very last verse of Bil'am's prophecy that talks about what will happen at the End of Days (see verse 14).
When the last vestige of the Ottoman Empire is gone, we can only look forward to a new era. Bimhera Veyameinu - Amen.
