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.

13th Century Prophecy Regarding the Turmoil in the Middle East

In Genesis, Chapter 25, verses 17 - 18, a noted Biblical commentator known as the Bal HaTurim (1269 - 1343) wrote that in the era of the Redemption, when Arab leaders begin to fall, the strength of the Messianic King will accelerate. The verse and "the  Tur's" comments are as follows:

"These were the years of Ishmael's life: a hundred and thirty-seven years, when he expired and died and was gathered to his people. They dwelt from Havilah to Shur, - which is near Egypt - toward Assyria; over all his brothers he dwelt."
- Torah Portion Chaya Sarah

"Over All His Brothers He Dwelt." ...This teaches that when Ishmael's descendents fall in the end of days, then (Moshiach) the descendent of King David, of the offspring of Issac, will flourish.
- the Bal HaTurim
