Among the most exciting moments in this process of Redemption is watching the pieces come together. Anyone can do this. (You don't have to be a prophet!) Just by being an observer of the human scene,...current events, talk radio, internet news and daily experiences,--all this can be eye-opening about how the Rebbe's prophecy is being fulfilled.

Iran Seeks Revenge for Ancient Victory of Mordechai and Esther.

So many thousands of years later and Purim is in the headlines! Present-day Iran is grousing over the ancient victory of the Jewish people against the wicked Haman. Imagine. The Jews slayed 77,000 of their attackers, according to Iranian sources. (There's that number..."770," the headquarters of King Moshiach on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn, NY.) And strangely, when this news broke, a plane crashed in Iran killing 77.

Iranian Threats of Revenge for Mordechai's 'Purim Massacre' 

by Gil Ronen

Jan 9, 2011 ... More than 2000 years after Jews under Mordechai routed ancient Persians, modern Iranians threaten to damage Mordechai's tomb.

According to the official Iranian news agency MEHR, a group of about 250 student-members of the Basij militia gathered in front of the tomb in December and threatened to tear it down The Basij members sent to threaten the landmark were students from Abu Ali Sina University. They said they were responding to alleged Israeli plans to damage the Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem
"Muslims, be aware that [the Israelis] have started the destruction of Al-Aqsa mosque while their second sacred site in Iran, the Esther and Mordecai tomb, is at peace and no Muslims make a sound," the protesters stated. "We, the student basijis... warn Zionist regime leaders if they assault the Al-Aqsa mosque in any way we will destroy the tomb of these lowly murderers," they said.
Mordechai and Esther, they accused, massacred 77 thousand Iranians in a single day. Some of them wore burial shrouds as a declaration of their willingness to die for their cause.
According to a report on FightHatred.com, Iranian authorities have also taken to revising the history of Esther and Mordechai, teaching schoolchildren that the two carried out a massacre of tens of thousands of non-Jews, and that the annual Jewish festival of Purim is celebrated by Jews to commemorate this “Iranian Holocaust”.

Iran Plane Crash Kills 77

Jan 10, 2011 – 8:36 AM - AOL News
Rescuers are wading through deep snow today to try to pluck survivors and clues from the wreckage of a plane crash that killed at least 77 people in northwest Iran.

Iranian media blamed Sunday night's Iran Air crash on poor visibility and technical glitches, but investigators still have to analyze the plane's black box flight recorders, retrieved from the ghastly crash site today.
