    It looks like George Bush is preparing for "The Rapture" So this would make sense.

    (we could have a whole new thread on "The Rapture")

    bin laden's long range plan has primarily been the same as most extreme terrorist's ideals...for a homeland for the palestinians and this has been the call to young, impressionable would be terrorists

    the section of isreal the palestinians want most is east jerusalem since it's the richest concentration of islamic religious icons/art/history, etc

    but with arafat, hezbollah, and bin laden becoming more and more synonymous with the palestinian cause and the rash of suicide bombers in isreal, it does not seem likely the palestinians are going to find a lot of sympathy right now...might never makes right as we learned in vietnam and as the plo and their failed attempts through force are showing these days

    the plo may have had an agenda at one time for the palestinian society as a whole, but today it just seems that their business/agenda is war...and business is good

    every car bomb let off by a suicide bomber only makes the hope for a palestine owned east jerusalem less and less likely

    as for revealation and armageddon, jerusalem appears to be ground zero...we already know about irrational islamic fundamentalists who are willing to use force, but now some fundamantalist christians are starting to resemble their islamic counterparts and to god, it's likely neither side is right...many believers in god are believers in military force, greed, hate, etc and only use god as a cover for their secular actions and agendas
