Black Death: epidemic of various contagious diseases, bubonic, septicemic, and pneumonic, all caused by the same bacillus, pasteurella pestis, a combination of which raged throughout Europe between 1348 and 1350. Toward the end of 1348 and in early 1349 countless numbers of Jews lost their lives in a wave of massacres which spread throughout Europe as a result of the accusation that the Jews had caused the death of Christians by poisoning the wells and other water sources.

Blood Libel, the allegation that Jews murder non-Jews, especially Christians, in order to obtain blood for the Passover or other rituals.

Gothic Field Guide, Gothic architectural terms,

For reasons lost to time and tradition, a cathedral always faces west - toward the setting sun. The altar is placed at the east end. The main body, or nave, of the cathedral is usually divided into one main and two side aisles. These lead up to the north and south transepts, or arms of the cross, the shape in which a cathedral is usually formed.

gargoyle - a spout usually carved in the shape of an animal or demon, and connected to a gutter for throwing rain water from the roof of a building.

green man - a symbolic, decorative, carving characterized by a human face sprouting foliage.

grotesque - a carving usually of a demon, dragon, or half human/half animal, serving no utilitarian purpose. Often confused with gargoyles.

jamb figures - located on either side of the west front door; the first carved figures a visitor meets on a visit to a Gothic cathedral. Traditionally depicting Old Testament prophets, or martyred saints.

Lady chapel - the easternmost chapel of a cathedral, intended for quiet contemplation and the occasional special service.

Judengasse - separate Jewish street or quarters.

Kristallnacht (Ger. "Night of the Broken Glass"), Nazi anti-Jewish outrage committed on November 9–10, 1938.

Notre Dame (French for "Our Lady"), the Virgin Mary. The term has served as the name for Roman Catholic churches and for Roman Catholic abbeys, shrines, and educational institutions dedicated to the Virgin.--Universal Standard Encyclopedia.

[W]hen 2,000 prophetic years (720,000 days) are added from the date that the Messiah was crucified (April 28, 28 AD) it comes to August 12, 1999...[that] Hebrew day begins at sunset on August 11 or 3.5 hours after the end of the eclipse. The eclipse begins a few minutes after 12 noon (Jerusalem Standard Time) and ends at 2:56 pm. Sunset is at 6:26 pm Jerusalem Standard Time (not Daylight Savings time)...the sun will be darkened from the "sixth hour to the ninth hour" (Matt 27:45; Mark 15:33; Luke 23:44-46).

Subject: Synchronicity between Pakistan-India Shootdown and Eclipse

Some people may find it interesting - I certainly do - that the place where India shot down the Pakistani reconnaissance plane is the EXACT location that sees the end of the total solar eclipse tomorrow.

The path of totality runs right to the border juncture of Pakistan and India on the Bay of Bengal... in the swampy area that the Pakistani plane was shot down in. It is the last place on the planet that sees the total eclipse just before the Sun sets over the water of the Arabian Sea to the West.

I have been theorizing lately that the path of totality pretty accurately denotes the area that a lot of prophecy describes as being invaded and ravaged by the Islamic Alliance in the future war on Europe.

In my theoretical model, the time line "as below" (here on Earth) will run opposite the path of totality of the eclipse... with the serious Islamic Alliance "Jihad" beginning at the border between Pakistan and India, and then eventually the Islamic campaign will spread westward in 2000.

The eclipses path also crosses...

Esfahan, Iran - the ancient capital of Persia, site of the "King's Mosque" - one of the largest and most ornate in Iran. Also the location of Iran's religious schools of the Clerics. Islamic "End Times" prophecies say that the "Dajaal" which is their version of the antichrist character, will be active in Esfahan just before he truly comes to power. Islamic prophecies also state that early on in the "End Times" a holy war will be waged by an Islamic country against India and that Islam will prevail.

Diyarkabar, Turkey - PKK Kurd stronghold and near the entrance point for the eventual "Persian" invasion of southern Turkey as described by Nostradamus. Eclipse's path includes the border region between Iraq, Iran, and Turkey where the Turkish incursions have raised tensions recently.

Mosul, Iraq - Ancient city of Nineveh (capital of Assyria,) north of Baghdad on the Tigris River. An area frequently bombed by western planes in the northern no-fly zone. One of the sites JP II has said he wants to see when he visits Iraq in December.

Early last month we sent out info on the citites where the eclipse was going to be total. It was mentioned that the eclipse seemed to be going on a tour of Gothic cathedrals in Europe. On further research it seems that almost every town/city had either a cathedral, castle or some medieval fortification such as a tower. (The file is still not finished as my computer is dying, the monitor has a twitch and the mouse has developed a hiccup.) This phenomena came to the fore today as I was reading "Scarlet and the Beast" by John Daniel. In it he states:

"The original 'masons' were stone masons, carpenters, draftsmen, workmen, and others who traveled throughout Europe and England building the massive cathedrals of the Roman Church, as well as various fortifications, abbeys, castles, etc. A conglomerate of workingman guilds, equivalent to unions today, these masons date their origin to the first millennium after the birth of Christ. Masonic workmen lodged together while building cathedrals, hence the term 'masonic lodge.'"

I thought at first of a strictly religious angle to what the eclipse was pointing to but this illustration of Freemasonry seems to fit better because it also takes into account all the castles, towers, etc. along the way--religion coupled with strength. That seems to be what Freemasonry is all about; their lodges are the temples where the intrigue of global conquest is plotted and put into motion.

This notion of lodge as temple (worshipping any god the initiate chooses) is illustrated in their own publications. One example of this is the way the structure of the organization is shown in pictures. Basically, the masons are split into two groups: the Scottish Rite of 30 degrees and the York Rite of 10 degrees. This is shown as a pyramid with 30 steps on one side and 10 on the other leading to a flat top which equals the highest degree called the Shriners. The make-up of this pyramid is interesting in light of the following: to get to the platform where an ancient temple stood, worshippers would be confronted with a platform surrounded by steps on all sides. Some of the sides had very high steps (some as high as 1.6 feet) and others had smaller, easily negotiated ones which led to the top. This lay-out symbolized the entry into a sacred precinct and is thought to have surrounded the Temple Mount at one time. (Biblical Archaeology Review, Sept/Oct 1999).

Another tie-in is that the eclipse went through Batman, Turkey. When I first saw the name of the town I've got to admit I started singing the Batman and Robin theme, but that's not as crazy as it seems. One of the appendices to "Scarlet and the Beast" is about the Shriners (the top of the pyramid). Apparently the first Shriner Temple in America was named Gotham Temple and "it is alleged that the stories of Batman and Robin from Gotham City (New York City) is based upon the Gotham Shrine Temple's alleged war against evil-doers." The Gotham Temple was renamed Mecca "when it was decided that all Temples should have an Arabic or Egyptian title."

I think the tie between the cities/towns that experienced 100% total darkness and Freemasonry is a valid one and should be considered when interpreting what the solar eclipse of August 11, 1999 meant.
