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.

Prophetic vision of the Rebbe in 1991: Iran and Syria are the problem

As the year 1991 drew to a close, the West basked in the defeat of Iraq in the Gulf War. Saddam Hussein was still in power and attention was still focused on Iraq. Iran was scarcely in the headlines. In October of 1991, on the Sunday "dollars line," when the Lubavitcher Rebbe would give blessings and a dollar to hundreds of people, the mayor of Ariel, Israel, had his turn. First he thanked the Rebbe for the prophetic blessing he received on his visit a year and a half before, -- that the population of his city should double. He told the Rebbe this blessing had been fulfilled. Then the Rebbe told him what is now revealed as another prophecy. The Rebbe said the real problem is Syria and Iran. These countries are not only against Israel, but the Rebbe said, "even more so" against America. In the Rebbe's words, "They want the United States to fail." The Rebbe said it is in America's best interest, and in the interest of the entire world, that there be a strong Israel. It seems clear that the Rebbe wanted this publicized as he gave the Mayor of Ariel, Ron Nachman, an extra dollar as his "share" in advertising these words. Today, twenty-two years later, the world is focused on the nuclear threat coming from Iran. And who is Iran's chief supporter? Syria.
