I was skeptical at first, but the book and the following three excerpts point out that if you push Israel to surrender land for peace you will suffer the wrath of GOD. Note: [Words in brackets are comments of blogger, LHC.]

EYE to EYE: FACING THE CONSEQUENCES OF DIVIDING ISRAEL By William Koenig of Koenig International News --May 2006
1. 9/11/ 2001 Attack, page 101
[Action] According to the Washington Post, for 17 days prior to the 9-11 terror events, President Bush–with the encouragement and involvement of Secretary Powell and U.S. Ambassador to Israel Daniel Kurtzer, and in co-operation with the Saudis–was working on the most comprehensive plan and message ever to be offered about Israel’s covenant land by an American president. Bush and his top officials had completed a majority of their work on September 10. Secretary Powell was to present the plan to the United Nations General Assembly on September 24, 2001.
Saudi Arabia’s Prince Bandar bin Sultan, who had been active in the negotiations, stated he went from being “the happiest man in the world” on Monday night, September 10, to experiencing the worst crisis of his career on September 11. Dreams of a new Middle East peace initiative evaporated. The realization that most of the hijackers were Saudis “fell on me...like the whole house collapsed over my head,” Bandar said later. He couldn’t imagine a way to “do more damage or worse damage to Islam or to Saudi Arabia.” The U.S. war on terror was birthed on September 11, 2001, at the very same time President Bush and his administration were completing a comprehensive plan for Israel. What has happened since then speaks volumes. The education president has now become the war president.
[This comprehensive plan is now called the “Road Map for Peace.” For the first time in history a U.S. President called for a Palestine State in the Mountains of Israel. (November 10, President Bush spoke to UN General Assembly supporting “two states–Israel & Palestine” as a just peace solution.)]
2. Record 412 Tornadoes in 11 days — May 1-11, 2003, page 140

[In the Scriptures, the Golan Heights are called Bashan, which is part of the Promised Land.]

May 1-11 — Record 412 tornadoes in 11 days in the U.S. (Previous record of tornadoes for same period in May was 177 in 1999) costliest in U.S. history; $2.2 billion. Also, 535 windstorms and 1,385 hailstorms. 19 states affected. 40 dead.
May 4 — As part of the 412 above, on this day 83 tornadoes ripped through 4 states; 38 dead.

3. Hurricane Katrina August 23-29, 2005 [pp 149, 150, 152, 154]
From August 26 to October 24, 2005, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida experienced the fury of three of the six most intense and costly hurricanes in Atlantic Basin history as Israel’s land was being negotiated and divided. Once again, as the land and people of Israel were being pressured, the land of the U.S. was being devastated.
On August 15, thousands of Israeli Defense Force (IDF) soldiers began to deliver eviction notices to Israeli [people] who had lived on the land of Gaza and Northern Samaria for 35 years. They were given 48 hours to leave [their homes, farms, and businesses]. The notification process also began in four Northern Samaria [towns]. [The people] were given the option to leave voluntarily or be removed by force.
Ariel Sharon committed 55,000 soldiers and 8,000 police to the effort. Soldiers who refused to carry out the orders would face a court-martial.
On August 17, despite some resistance, authorities said Israel’s historic withdrawal from Gaza was progressing rapidly, predicting that 10 out of 21 Jewish settlements [towns] would be cleared by the end of the day.
On August 17, 2005, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said that while she feels for evacuated settlers, Israel will be expected to make further concessions that would ultimately lead to an independent Palestinian state. [She said], “Everyone empathizes with what the Israelis are facing, but added, "It cannot be Gaza only.”
On August 22, the last of the 21 Gaza towns, Netzarim, was evacuated, with the entire Gaza evacuation compressed into just one week, far shorter than the three weeks security forces foresaw.
On August 23, at 5 p.m. Israel time, Israel’s disengagement evacuation and eviction ended. Israel evacuated the last [citizens] and protesters from the West Bank [town] of Homesh, completing its historic withdrawal of civilians from 25 [towns] in Gaza and the West Bank...
On August 23 the same afternoon the final Jews were driven from their homes [and businesses], a tropical depression began to form near the Bahamas. By 11 a.m. on August 24, the newly formed tropical depression 12 was upgraded to Tropical Storm Katrina; and by 5 p.m. on August 25, Katrina became a hurricane. On Friday, August 26, Hurricane Katrina hit Southeast Florida. By August 29, Katrina had become a fierce and enormous Category 3 hurricane that pummeled Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama–devastating the city of New Orleans. Katrina became the largest disaster in U.S. history.
The storm forced 1 million people from their homes. Over 225,000 homes in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama were completely destroyed. As of December 2005, 473,000 people were without work due to the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.
From August 17-23, 2005 and beyond, Israel experienced one of the most excruciating moments in their nation’s history. From August 29 forward, the U.S. experienced the largest most devastating disaster in its history.
The list in the book goes on and on...
