Israeli 2006 Election Epilogue |
By Moshe Aharon (Morris) Shak
Copyright © April 2006
Shortly after the publication of the second Shimon Peres article on the 2006 Israeli election in February 2006, it became clear how the number of seats per party running for the parliament (as noted in the Bible codes presented) continued to exactly match the polls as published in the Israeli newspapers. This phenomenon was already reported regarding the 2005 year-end polls.
In the December 2005 issue, the Israeli election matrix was introduced as follows:
The following matrix reflects the current mood in Israel based on several polls published up to December 12, 2005.
In the February 2006 issue, the article concluded as follows:
Now the big question is: Are the codes showing the mood of the nation, or are these divine results for Election Day? The three codes below, in my opinion dwell on this issue . . . Is it possible that the term woe crushes them will apply to the polls? The actual results term can be in past AND present tense (i.e., two sets of results).
This revelation on the outlook of the election, I believe, is merely to indirectly draw our attention to moral issues rather than to the less important issues of how many seats each party wins.
Why draw our attention indirectly? Hashem already drew our attention to what is right and wrong in the literal text in which the Bible codes are found. This is one more miracle to show that the Bible is divine.
Now there is no doubt that the matrix was indeed as described in the mini-matrix above: Hashem polled for Himself, and A nation He polled. The last term above was also prophetic: Results He created.
In the rest of this article, you will see that not only was "Hashem's Poll" the best indication of the nation's mood for a few months, but it also registered in several medias exactly as in the matrix on several dates separated by weeks. However, there is much more to this matrix and what it was missing. The missing term for the surprise party Gimlaim that came up "from nowhere" to reap seven seats speaks louder about the results than anything else.
Let us first look at the root of the term gimlaim that may be spelled in two different ways in Hebrew: (gamal) is a verb: to deal bountifully, to recompense, to remunerate, to pay back; to do someone a good or a bad turn. (gimel) is the third letter of the Hebrew alphabet or from the root , turned someone a good or a bad turn.
From the same root of the word we also have a blessing when we thank Hashem that He protected us on a long dangerous voyage [the blessing of the gomel — ], and in my case, now I thank Hashem for guiding me along his paths.
However, in this article, I like Moses and the children of Israel also sing another song (Exodus 15:1). I believe that the codes in the matrix, and the code that is missing in the matrix, suggest that Hashem got rid of several riders and their vehicles. The rider is the one in the driver seat who steers the direction. The vehicle is the party that carries the affairs of men.
Let us now compare the results of the election to the information presented in the prior two articles. The sinking of the some of the leaders will be analyzed as well.
Peres Is Still a Loser
The two preceding articles dealt with Shimon Peres, the "Loser." Immediately after most of the votes were counted, and it became apparent that Kadima got much fewer votes than expected, News-Israel.net (March 29, 2006) published an article on Shimon Peres. The heading of the article analyzed the results of the elections and stated that Peres THE LOSER does it again. [This site is in Hebrew.]
For many months, the polls told the story that Kadima (with the help of Peres) would be getting many seats. Peres was given the credit for all those that left the Labor Party for Kadima. The News-Israel.net article claims that at the very last moment (as usual) those who left the Labor Party to follow Peres actually left Peres for a party that until a week before the election did not even register in the polls. The new party is called the Gimlaim or pensioners. That new party of "old timers" took an unbelievable seven seats.
Hashem's Poll Is Exactly as Several Polls During the Election Campaign
I believe that the results were an accurate analysis of Hashem's polls.
Two polls that were issued immediately after the January/February 2006 Digest was published were almost identical to the polls of the last day in 2005 as shown in my prior article.
Walla News (March 16, 2006) published a comparison of the two leading Israelis newspapers Marive (in blue) and Yediot Achronot (in red), and on February 23, 2006, Walla News published a comparison between the current (blue) and the previous week (red) results. [This site is in Hebrew.]
Both samples mentioned above do not list all the parties. They do show Kadima with 40 seats, Labor with 20, Likud with 15, Shas with 9, Meretz with 5, etc. The year-end 2005 poll and the two polls mentioned above with the full list of parties agreed completely with the Bible codes article or as stated in the last article with "Hashem's poll."
Why did Hashem show us his accurate poll in the codes and not the final outcome of the elections? There are several reasons for that: action and reaction, gambling, and intent.
- Hashem warns, and tells in the Bible what will happen if . . . Hashem, in my opinion, as is indicated in the codes does not want the Jews to give up His land to others. Kadima was ahead in the polls up to 45 seats at times. Very late in the election campaign Olmert, on behalf of his party, declared that he was going to give away more land. It is interesting to note that at that point his party began to shatter — just as in the Bible codes term: crushes them the truthful G-d.
- In many places on the Internet and otherwise, there was the possibility of making money by betting on how many seats each party would gain. Gambling is not the way that Hashem wants us to gain wealth. Hashem will not aid us in that.
- The intent of revealing to us an amazing set of polls that time after time matches what was found in the codes at the outset of the elections is to overwhelm us with the infinite wisdom in the writings of the Torah. It is to show those that are bored with looking at the plain text that even in a coded version the same truth is being told. It is unbelievable to be able to obtain such a set of numbers in the Bible that would match the polls. But there is more to the matrix than just numbers.
Hashem Crushes Three Parties
There were several warnings about crashing/shattering them. As noted in the previous article, the Likud and Shinui did not follow Hashem's wish, and so they would be crushed.
Shinui was wiped out (crushed!) from 14 seats to zero.
Likud was crushed/shattered from 38 seats to 11.
However, does that term apply also to Kadima? First let us ask ourselves: Does going down from a high of 45 to 29 constitute shattering? That is what happened to Kadima. Kadima that means FORWARD in Hebrew actually went BACKWARD. Are there indications in the codes that Hashem is not too happy with Kadima? I believe that this is the case.
Hashem's Wish: Go Away from Kadima Is Implemented
One of the key terms in the matrix that impressed me very much was the term:
That term was the favorable version of the outcome of the elections for Kadima where their rivals such as the Likud would be desolated and petrified. But Hashem always gives us the choice between good (and live), or bad (and die). If Kadima is not "good," they will, therefore, not get 40 seats, because they have gone after Shimon Peres to compromise the land of Israel . . . the same term may give two different meanings:
The first variation:
This version implies that Hashem indicates that it is for the masses, but not to His liking. Our sages of blessed memory discussed the terminology for YOU plural based on the verse below.
During the ceremonial meal of the Passover, this verse is attributed to one of the four sons — the wicked son. Since he refers to you, it excludes him (the wicked son). By the same logic, Hashem may suggest here that Kadima is NOT for Himself. Hashem excludes Himself.
If we examine the code above closely, there is a strong hint to the very verse above and the discussion above. The code starts with , which translates to Exodus 11, which is the chapter in Exodus previous to the reference above. If we look at the term , it may indicate chapters 11 and 12. These two chapters deal with the proclamation of the last plague and its implementation. This results in the referenced verse above. Is there here an emphasis on our sages' teachings and a reminder that the children of Israel's salvation is in the land of Israel as promised by Hashem?
If we follow that logic, the code above really means:
In a similar fashion, our sages of blessed memory elaborated on the term you in the singular format in the verse below:
Numbers 13:2 — Send thou men, that they may spy out the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel; of every tribe of their fathers shall ye send a man, every one a prince among them.
The verse in Hebrew begins with: "Send for you . . . " For you is lecha singular form of the same word above lachem that is in the plural form.
In the quotation from Numbers above, Hashem tells Moses to send spies so that the people will judge the Promised Land. Hashem does not need the spies' opinion on the land. Hashem knows that the land flows with milk and honey. It is only because of the children of Israel's desire that Hashem tells Moses to go ahead. In the Bible code above, Hashem wants no part in Kadima. However, Hashem knows that the children of Israel want Kadima. Therefore, Hashem indicates: Kadima is for you — it is not for me.
The concept of "send for you . . . " not for Hashem is not my invention. I was taught that a long time ago. However, look deeper at the implication of lecah, "for you" singular, and lachem, "for you" plural: In both cases, the key issue is the PROMISED LAND. In both cases, the children of Israel want to decide if they want it! The trouble is that now they go even farther. They do not want all of it. They do not have faith that Hashem will keep his promise. They are willing to give it away piece by piece like no other nation has ever done before.
The second variation:
After Hashem took a poll and saw how the nation is after Kadima, and after Hashem heard, (looked into Olmert's heart) and knew that Kadima is about to pull out of Hashem's land, he "tells" the old (wise) to vote for the pensioner's party. Hashem tells many people to go away from Kadima (which means forward) back to other parties.
In the end, the results show that from the 45 projected seats for Kadima before Olmert suggested more withdrawals, only 29 seats remained. Sixteen seats just walked away.
Netanyaho's Woe Came True as Predicted
As shown in the previous articles, there were several woe terms regarding Benjamin (Netanyahu). The most telling term was:
Benjamin (Netanyaho): And as for me, if I be bereaved of my children
[so many members of my party under my leadership —
like children to a father], I am bereaved. Woe.
After losing so badly, Benjamin the Shepherd is about to lose his flock. There is already talk by the party's top leaders about a new leader.
Amir Peretz Rise to Power
It now appears that Amir Peretz will be a key player in the new government. Since the Labor Party is the second largest party, Olmert and the Kadima party will need Peretz and will have to pay a price. Moreover, even today, there is a talk of the possibility that Peretz and Netanyahu will join forces and form a coalition without Olmert. In either scenario, the following term was already outlined in the codes
And according unto thy word shall all be ruled — Amir (Peretz)
The Election Results — Party by Party
The election results are very similar to "Hashem's Poll" as the final results would have been had it not been for the last minute declaration by Ehud Olmert that more land is to be given away. Do the codes really say that? I believe that in this article and in the others, it is shown clearly. However, look at the results where the Bible codes figures are given in the left side and the actual results are on the right. The story is in the third set of figures in brackets on the right.
* Four parties get the exact number of seats as in "Hashem's Poll."
** The combined "Poll" of two parties is within one seat.
*** The combined "Poll" for three parties is within one seat.
**** The number of seats elected is an appropriate definition of a crush, as the Bible codes indicate. The term crush is extensively used in the media to explain not only Likud's performance, but also Benjamin Netanyahu's woes, as predicted in the Bible codes.
In total, 10 parties received (within half a seat) the seats indicated in the Bible codes. The Likud's number of seats is considered to be within the prediction of a crush, while National Union and NRP were listed separately in the codes as having two and eight seats. They ran together and received only nine. This makes them about half a seat away each from the codes.
The real difference is where Kadima lost 11 seats while Shas and Israel Beitienu gained 8. Both parties are known for their stand against withdrawal or disengagement. Shas chief Rabbi Ovadiah Yosef is against it. Israel Beitienu literally means, "Israel is our home." They are the "extreme right" against such a move. The other party Gimlaim got seven seats almost by a miracle. The Gimlaim did not register in the polls at all until the last week before election time. There is more on the Gimlaim and the reason for their success below.
The Election Results — Summary
The Israeli parties may be considered as left, right, and center, as well as religious and Arab. Meretz is on the far left; Israel Beitienu and the Likud are on the right; while Kadima, Labor, and Gimlaim are at the center. Note that traditionally, Labor was a left party, however, compared to Meretz, Labor is relatively center. The term below in the main election matrix indicates that those three center parties will gain 56 seats. Moreover, note the significance of the skip that has the same absolute value of 213 but with a negative sign:
The Election Polls Puzzle
In my last article on the Israeli election, I was debating whether the election results as shown by the codes were only Hashem's Poll or the final election results prediction. The terms poll with their extensions, as well as the term indicating that Hashem creates, suggested that it was only a poll. Today, when all the results are in, it is quite evident that it was a poll without any mistakes. The poll indicated in the codes was the most exact poll for most of the election campaign. But there is another major factor.
It is amazing that the Gimlaim Party does not appear within the matrix boundary as published in the last article. The only way to get the Gimlaim Party within the same matrix is to increase its size by almost 40%. The term gimlaim does appear in the Torah with a skip as low as 10. However, the Gimlaim did not register in the minds of the voters nor did they register in the polls until the last week of the campaign.
The Gimlaim Factor
I looked up the party name — gimlaim in the codes, but I could not find it in the matrix in either of two acceptable versions as shown above. On the other hand, I found at its lowest skip of minus 122 in the book of Numbers 11:18-31. Upon extending the term, I found three more letters: mem, alef, and lamed, which in Hebrew spells: From Hashem. This is another indication that Hashem created the results as was concluded in my last article: .
Numbers 11:24 — And Moses went out, and told the people the words of the LORD; and he gathered seventy men of the elders of the people, and set them round about the Tent.
The elders are regarded highly in the text. They were actually elevated to the level of a prophet. Apparently, they are regarded higher than Kadima at present times. Note that the 15 seats in the brackets above came as a complete surprise to all experts at the last phase of the election campaign. Note that the 15 unexpected seats plus the 29 seats that Kadima won adds up to the 44 seats that was shown at times in the polls for Kadima.
Next, I tried to see what the other version of gimlaim would show. The shorter spelling of produced verification that Hashem is pleased with their election (as opposed to Kadima). By extending the term in its lowest skip in the Torah, we get two extra words, which produce the following message:
The term gimlaim in Hebrew has an interesting indication as to why they should be the ones to receive seats in the new parliament (instead of Kadima). First, note that seven has been known as Hashem's favorite number in many examples. One can only look at many cases where seven was chosen such as King David being the seventh son. The Gimlaim received seven seats as a gift from Hashem. Why do I say a gift? For many reasons, but let us look at the closest term for gimlaim in an enlarged matrix and extend it even farther:
Let us look at the word gimlaim in its two versions:
Note that at the beginning of the article, the definition of the third letter of the alphabet was established. The third letter of the alphabet in its four-letter definition also means "He paid back." Therefore, we can either now look at the term gimlaim and look at the letter gimel as an acronym for the word gimel, or just start reading the one term from left to right and wrap back from right to left. There is now mounting evidence of divine intervention.
In several of my articles, there has been evidence that Hashem is not in favor of His people giving away his gift [the land]. At the end of the current election campaign, there was another term used for disengagement or giving away his gift. The term is from the word [to withdraw into oneself]. It is the new terminology invented to describe the buzzword used for months as or disengagement. It has the same letters as the word , which means [to put oneself into danger]. , the terminology that Olmert used, contains in it Hashem's answer "be quiet," "repair."
A Final Remark
Right at the heart of the most impressive term in the matrix — right where all the story is, we have Kadima. Hashem is telling Kadima: My speech (or story) is the truth. My speech is (all about) a poll. It was not a prediction of what the final standing in the parliament will add up to. Note that numerous times in the Bible, including in the Five Books of Moses, the term Neum Hashem (the speech of Hashem) or similar versions appear. In addition, Mishal () is not only an opinion poll, but also a term indicating "a request."
I see several possibilities for a request. Requesting the voters (to go away from Kadima); requesting Kadima to hold on to the Promised Land; requesting the people to listen to Hashem; etc. What is clear from the mini-matrix is that the main term there is asking all to look ahead. Appreciate your actions before you take them.
Some people may not enjoy reading the Bible, but the codes discussed tell the same story.
In my two previous articles, the same matrix was analyzed with respect to the number of the seats each party would get. In both articles, it was stated that the seats indicated in the codes represented the current Israeli political mood. At the very end of the second article, there was a focus on the issue of the intent of the results and two terms related to POLLS were outlined: Hashem polled, and Hashem can dictate the results as He wishes.
