Is the War with Syria to Begin on Elul 25?

Debka says so. (H/t Devash)

If true, it is interesting since it matches the Zohar Balak 212b, which says that wars will break out on the 25th of Elul. It is also the same day that the Benghazi attack occurred last year, as was noted here. You can also see the translation of the Zohar here, but note that this translation was biased toward 9/11/01 being the start of the war (which may not be totally off-base, either).

Of course, Elul 25 is also the day the world was created, 5772 years ago. All the Derashot for 5772 still apply.

And as Rav Fish mentioned a few weeks ago, the Zohar mentions Elul 25 falling out on Shabbat. (Note that some versions mention it falling out on Friday, but such a thing is impossible because of Lo Adu Rosh - as mentioned by the footnote here.) Plus, it's the Shabbat of Nitzavim/Vayelech which talks about Geula in the Torah portion. Plus, as mentioned before, Nitzavim/Vayelech correspond to the current century. Also, as Rav Fish brought down, R' S. Reiskin says:
כ"ה אלול תשע"ג = לכה דודי לקראת כלה.

Interestingly, this is all happening right after the last of the eligible Falash Mura arrive in Israel in Operation Kanfei Yonah.

As it says:
וְהָיָה בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא, יוֹסִיף אֲדֹנָי שֵׁנִית יָדוֹ, לִקְנוֹת, אֶת-שְׁאָר עַמּוֹ--אֲשֶׁר יִשָּׁאֵר מֵאַשּׁוּר וּמִמִּצְרַיִם וּמִפַּתְרוֹס וּמִכּוּשׁ, וּמֵעֵילָם וּמִשִּׁנְעָר וּמֵחֲמָת, וּמֵאִיֵּי, הַיָּם.

May we only see and hear good things soon.

The 25th of Elul the actual birth of the world as man was created 6 days later on 1st of Tishre is certainly an auspicious time as you've pointed out events such as 9/11 and others. Visit Glazerson's latest video on 5775 for geulah.

Ya'ak: I believe your Mechon Mamre link is to Sefer Devarim. Perhaps you meant to link it to another Sefer?

such as Yishayahu 11?

I think like with Haman, an angel will have to give Obama a push. It is obvious from his vacillating behavior all week, he has no desire to start WW3.

Again your prophetic reference is to Yishayahu 11.

For whatever it is worth, years ago before the aerial bombardment during the 1st Persian Gulf War, I remembered a discussion about when the US would be most likely to begin an aerial bombardment of Iraq. Everyone seemed to agree that the best time for a nighttime bombardment is at the time of the waning moon from the last 6 days before the molad until the New Moon itself. The molad for Rosh HaShana this year is on Thursday, Sept. 5th, late morning, Rosh HaShana day itself. The 6 days therefore begins on Friday night. Perhaps it will be 6 days of creating a new and better world by destroying the old, corrupt world that the world has fallen into. But as of now, Obama is walking on so many eggshells afraid that he may break an egg, that it is unclear if he will do anything meaningful. An angel will have to give him a push.

Hashem Yerachem.

Wow, we're definitely getting closer.

My estimation is that all this over Syria is really to induce fear in the Israelis as a means to teshuva. Before R"H we all think about our neshomas and our relationship to G-d Al-mighty. What a way to Crown Hashem as our King! We need to seriously concentrate on what our purpose is at this time of year.
