More on Operation Pillar of Cloud
It is interesting that the war started on Wednesday of Parshat Toledot. Today corresponds to the Torah reading of Revi'i, where Avimelech, the King of the Pelishtim (etymologically, geographically, and symbolically similar to the Palestinians) in Gerar (Gaza area), along with Pichol, the army general, and either some of his friends or a friend named Ahuzat - came to Yitzhak Avinu and said to him:
This peace treaty implies that if the Pelishtim/Palestinians do touch you, the treaty is null and void and we have the right and obligation to destroy them. No coincidence that this started today.אִם-תַּעֲשֵׂה עִמָּנוּ רָעָה, כַּאֲשֶׁר לֹא נְגַעֲנוּךָ, וְכַאֲשֶׁר עָשִׂינוּ עִמְּךָ רַק-טוֹב, וַנְּשַׁלֵּחֲךָ בְּשָׁלוֹם; אַתָּה עַתָּה, בְּרוּךְ יְהוָהthat thou wilt do us no hurt, as we have not touched thee, and as we have done unto thee nothing but good, and have sent thee away in peace; thou art now the blessed of the LORD.'
Other things I noticed (via GezaGeza):
- According to Wikipedia, Ahmed Jabari's full name is אחמד סעיד ח'ליל אל-ג'עברי, which has the same gematria as נבוזראדן רב טבחים.
- It is also the same gematria as כי עזה כמות אהבה which, with a play-on-words with the word עזה, can be very relevant.
- It is also the same gematria as the first 2 words of כִּימֵי צֵאתְךָ, מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם, אַרְאֶנּוּ, נִפְלָאוֹת
- It is also the same gematria as בֵּית-אֱלָהָא דְנָה לִבְּנֵא
