The danger posed by the network of Sunni extremists sweeping through Iraq and Syria has not only humiliated the Middle-East policy of US and its allies but it has also posed a perceived danger to the security of Israel. The Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) has pledged to take Telaviv and Jerusalem, and to “liberate Palestine” as part of its campaign. A terrorist organization Hamas is also threatening Israel of dare consequences. A year and half ago Israel had started an armed campaign ‘Operation Protective Edge’ against in the Hamas governed Gaza strip.
Interestingly Israel, US , Canada, European Union , Japan , Egypt and Jordan classify Hamas as a terrorist organization while the Iran , Russia, Turkey , China and many nations across the Arab world do not. Hamas, which was founded in 1987, is governing the Gaza strip area since year 2007 when it won the majority of seats in the Palestine Legislative elections held on 25 January 2006 defeating the the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) afflicted ‘Fatah’ political party. However the national unity Palestine government formed by Hamas then was collapsed when a violent conflict erupted between the Hamas and Fatah in the Gaza strip area. After the Gaza strip was taken over by Hamas on 14 June 2007, the Chairman of Palestine authority dismissed the Hamas lead government and appointed Salam Fayyad as new Prime Minister. Although the Palestine Authority claim over the entire Palestine territories but the Hamas control over Gaza strip area means that its authority is de facto limited to West Bank area only.
Since 2007, the Palestinian Authority has continued to oversee the Palestinian territories in the West Bank, while the Hamas government has continued to control the Gaza Strip. So Palestine people have been divided into three territories; Israeli occupied Palestinian areas, West Bank governed by Palestinian Authority and the Gaza Strip area controlled by Hamas. In year 2011 the Egypt tried to reconcile between the West Bank and Gaza governments. This agreement was signed in Cairo in year 2011 , and was rectified by the 2012 Hamas-Fatah Doha agreement. But due to the post effects of Arab Spring of 2011-12 and the crisis in Syria the agreement had been failed to get executed.
We don’t have any astrological chart for Hamas but as per the book of World Horoscopes of Nicholas Campion the chart of the ‘State of Palestine’ is set for the Proclamation of the Independence of Palestine by Yasser Arafat on 15 November 1988, 01:40 a.m. LMT , Algiers. ( 03 E 03’, 36 N 47’). Although Campion suggest relocating the chart to Jerusalem but I have kept it for Algiers as the philosophy behind keeping the chart set for Algiers is simple for the reason that it is the place where the event took place. This keeps time and space connected. When the Palestinians get their nation, then we will have a new chart, new time and place
See the given below horoscope of the ‘State of Palestine’ or Foundation Chart of Palestine
Balance of Vimshottari dasha: Sun 2 Years 1 Month and 29 days.
Since the proclamation of the Independence of Palestine its government-in-exile is in Algiers which is the largest city of Algeria. The State of Palestine is a sovereign state recognized by the United Nations. In year 2012 the state of Palestine also became an observer in the United Nations. Although the State of Palestine claims over the Palestine territories and designate Jerusalem as its capital but most of the areas claimed by it have been occupied by Israel since 1967 in the aftermath of ‘six days war’.
In the foundation chart of the ‘State of Palestine’ the maha dasha of Rahu was started from 14 January 2008. Rahu is placed in the seventh house of war in the Leo lagna chart of Palestine. In Navamsha Rahu has again gone into the seventh house with lagna lord Mercury and seventh lord Jupiter. It is also under the aspect of third (neighbor) and eighth (intrigues) lord Mars in Navamsha. Since 2008 Israel had conducted four major military operations, including the current Operation Protective Edge, in the Palestine occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip area. In Vimshottari Rahu-Saturn-Venus was running from 26 February 2014 to 19 August 2014. The sub period lord Saturn is the seventh lord in the Rashi chart showing war and it is taking the lordship of sixth house which also shows strife. The sub-sub period lord Venus is debilitated tenth lord under the joint aspect of Saturn and Mars shows trouble for Palestine government.
The sub period of Saturn in the major period of Rahu will be running till 26 December 2015 in the horoscope of the ‘State of Palestine’. Later the sub period of Mercury in the 3rd house shows chances of a major territorial war, particularly in the first half of year 2016. The Mercury is along with debliteated Sun and is under the malefic aspect of Mars in the Rashi chart. In Navamsha the dasha lords Rahu and Mercury are in the 7th house of war. Now see the foundation chart of Israel to analysis this situation more deeply.
Balance of Vimshottari dasha: Saturn 7 Years 9 months and 2 days
Israel: The Virgo lagna chart of Israel ( 14 May 1948, 16:00 hrs, Tel Aviv from the book of World Horoscopes of Nicholas Campion) shows that the country will have to face terrorist threats in days to come as the long stay of Mars in Scorpio at its 3rd house indicates it astrologically.
The base of the creation of Israel was ‘Balfour declaration’ issued by the British after they expelled the Turks from the region during the First World War and promised support in establishing a national home for Jews in Palestine. The British rule the Palestine area under a League of Nations mandate from 1920 and encouraged Jewish immigration. On 14 May 1948, David Ben-Gurion, the executive head of the world Zionist organization declared the establishment of the Jewish state knows as ‘Israel’. This ignited the neighboring Arab nations and they invaded Palestine area and fought with the Israel on the next day of its formation.
In the horoscope of the Israel the striking feature is the placement of Mars in the twelfth house. As per a research of my teacher Shri K.N. Rao , which was presented in the form of a paper “Glimmer of Hope in a Strife Torn World” at the world conference on Mundane Astrology held in Vishakhpatnam in October 2010, the third , sixth, seventh house and the twelfth house placement of Mars in the horoscope of a country shows troubling neighbors, getting involved in war and getting involved or sufferings as a result of foreign plots. Mars from the twelfth house in the chart of Israel is giving its aspect to the third (neighbors), sixth (border clashes) and seventh ( war ) houses. Israel has fought many war with its Arab neighboring countries since her formation.
But it is a Vargottama Virgo lagna chart with a great Raj Yoga of Jupiter and Venus along with 4-10 axis showing prosperity and the strong 5th house shows the technological advancement of Israel. The country has not lost in any war despite the fact being surrounded by many hostile countires.
The maha dasha of Mars will start from 15 February 2016 in the horoscope of Israel. In Jaimini the Chara dasha of Cancer will be running at that time. In the Cancer rashi the Atamakaraka Saturn is placed and Ganatikaraka Jupiter is in the sixth house from Cancer showing chances of a full- scale war for Israel in year 2016. In Navamsha chart the Mars is along with the 7th lord Jupiter and giving the aspect to the 3rd house of border disputes. So the dasha of Mars in the horoscope of Israel is showing chances of a very dangerous war in the coming months. I had earlier written an article on this subject which was published in the Express Star Teller September 2014 issue with title ” Israel-Palestine Conflict’ in which i had made similar predictions.
There could be a terrorist attack in the city of Jerusalem any time after the solar eclipse of 9 March 2016 which is falling in the Aquarius the sign of religious places. The transiting Jupiter, which is signification of religious places, is conjoined with Rahu and under the malefic aspect of Saturn. The long stay of Mars in Scorpio along with Saturn is particularly dangerous for Israel till September 2016.
Later the Saturn-Jupiter conjunction in Capricorn in 2020 will bring a ruinous war between Israel and Arab world.
