  1. GAS will continue rising as Hashems plan is carried out

    1)build up the hatred of the muslims-i.e. Bnei Yishmael, the last ones to fight klal yisroel before mashiach comes-against klal yisroel.

    2)get even Israel’s best friend-the USA-to go against them, by putting it in the hands of a muslim Obama.

    3)get iran (GOG) to act on its nuclear plan R”L & the rest of the world join them (including the USA) into BRING MILCHEMES gog u’magog upon klal yisroel towards bringing Mashiach.

    with a few other tragic steps between these that is all in Hashems hands & can still be erased if klal yisroel does teshuva before its time comes.

    MAY THIS HAPPEN ASAP & MASHIACH COME ALREADY
