It’s written in the stars: The Jewish people will become stronger in 2014, at least according to an Egyptian astrologer who appeared on local television on Tuesday.
In an end-of-year interview on Al-Nahar TV, Egyptian astrologer Sayyed Al-Shimi warned that whenever Saturn enters a fire sign, the Jews become stronger. This, he claimed, is supposed to happen in December of 2014.
Al-Shimi based his claims on various events in Jewish and Israeli history, including the first World Zionist Congress, the Balfour Declaration, and the wars fought by Israel against the Arabs throughout its history.
The interview was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
“Saturn will enter the fire sign of Sagittarius. My late father and I have had a long history with Saturn entering fire signs. As Sheik Daud Al-Antaki wrote, when Saturn enters any of the fire signs, the Jews grow stronger. Don't believe in this merely because I say so. It's been tested. We tested it, and it turned out that...” claimed Al-Shimi.
“We discovered that Saturn entered the fire sign of Sagittarius when the first World Zionist Congress convened,” he continued.
“The Balfour Declaration was released when Saturn was in the fire sign of Leo. The Haganah Brigades began organizing and helping the English in 1928, when Saturn was in the fire sign of Sagittarius. The 1948 [War of Independence] took place when Saturn was in the fire sign of Leo. The 1956 [Sinai War] took place when Saturn was in the fire sign of Sagittarius. The 1967 [Six Day War] took place when Saturn was in the fire sign of Aries.”
Al-Shimi also said, “The last time Saturn was in the fire sign of Leo occurred in 2006. I started warning them in 2004: ‘Beware, when Saturn enters the sign of Leo, the Jews in Palestine will get stronger. Something leading to this will inevitably occur.’ What happened? The Palestinian Authority split into Fatah and Hamas.”
He concluded by advising Arab leaders to “do whatever they can to resolve the Palestinian problem” before the month of December, when Saturn enters the fire sign of Sagittarius, making the Jews stronger once again.
