Geula Update from Rav Fish - Behar 5779

Rav Fish gives a possible date for interesting things to occur: the 22nd or 23rd of Iyar.

This is because on Tishri 17, 5776, which is September 30th, 2015,  Russia began its involvement in the war in Syria.

If you add 1335 days to Sep. 30, 2015, you get May, 27, 2019, which is the 22nd of Iyar, 5779.

If these airstrikes occurred in the evening or night, it would have been the 18th of Tishri, which would make the 1335 days fall out on the 23rd of Iyar.

According to Rav Fish, this is significant since the Ibn Ezra on the end of Sefer Daniel explains that the 1335 days are 3.5 years after the King of the North attacks and captures the King of the South, which possibly refers to Russia attacking and capturing the rebel-held parts of Syria.

Now, there are some issues with this that need to be resolved.  Here are the most glaring ones:

Problem #1: The Ibn Ezra here and elsewhere identifies the King of the South as Egypt - not Syria.

Possible Solution: Rav Fish deals with this and says that "Egypt" is really referring to Yishmaelite Kingdom in the broader sense, as the Ibn Ezra himself alludes to Egypt being part of the broader Yishmaelite Kingdom, and that includes Syria.

Problem #2: The Ibn Ezra (on Daniel 11:36) identifies the King of the North as Constantinople (or Turkey) - not Russia.

Possible Solution: Perhaps, since ever since 3 years ago, Russia and Turkey have had warm relations, they are considered one entity.  Or, perhaps, Russia took over Turkey's role as the leading Northern power since the Islamization of Turkey.

Anyways, it's a date to possibly look out for, even though אחכה לו בכל יום שיבא.

I do believe that Israel will to deal in a very strong way with Turkey if it gets too aggressive and beligerant toward Israel. Turkey is due north of Israel and their warriors are more than ruthless. What about Iran in Lebanon? No one talking about that. A more direct threat!

Eli, absolutely. Hence, the last line in the post.

While Russia is traditionally viewed as the King of the North based on being located far north as well as both its type of Xianity and its identity of being a successor of sorts to the Byzantines / ERE, a case could be made for Turkey being the true candidate.

1- It occupies much of the Byzantine / ERE lands and ethnically cleansed its former inhabitants, something it is without shame proud of it to this day while falsely accusing Israel of doing the same.

2- They are currently the unrepentant perpetrators of the Armenian, Assyrian and Greek genocides and deny it to this day with the world's silence being cited with an infamous quote by a certain leader responsible for the Shoah (“Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?”).

Additionally the Turks at the time as the Ottomans planned (by Djemal Pasha) a similar fate for the Jews in the Yishuv as done to the Armenians, Assyrians and Greeks, only to be saved individuals from the German Empire during WW1 including the likes of General Erich von Falkenhayn (who himself was said to be not fan of Jewish people) and others.

3- Despite being deserving of sanctions and being kicked out of NATO, much of the world (with the possible exception of China on the subject of Uighurs) treats Turkey with kid’s gloves, acts conciliatory towards it and basically turns a blind eye to their undignified antics (due partly to its strategic location) against the Cypriots, Greeks, Kurds, Syria (being implicated with supporting ISIS and Morsi / Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt), Egypt, Iraq (again with Kurds as well as preventing US from invading Iraq from the north), Israel/Jews and holding Europe to ransom with illegals.

In light of the current regime’s anti-Israel/Jewish stance, its Neo-Ottoman ambitions of restoring the Turkish ruled Caliphate and ruling over much of the Middle East, the self-assurance they have from seemingly having gotten away with committing genocide effectively duping the world (unlike Germany or Japan) meaning they would without hesitation attempt to do so once more (albeit as part of a coalition for spoil / plunder of Jihad) and currently actually occupy other peoples lands (which once formed part of the Roman Empire), along with the fact they have never been truly held to account by Heaven in all their triumphalist history and the deduction of who the King of the North might be would appear to speak for itself.

Jesterhead (and Neshama too), thank you for giving reasons why Turkey is the King of the North. I too have many posts in the past that would corroborate such a possibility.

In this instance, however, to get Rav Fish's theory to fit, we need to take the other side of the argument - that it's Russia and not Turkey - or possibly a combination of the 2.
