US Senate Endorses Israel's War on Gaza
By Jeremy R. Hammond
The US Senate on Thursday passed a non-binding resolution promoted by the influential Israeli lobby AIPAC (The American Israel Public Affairs Committee), effectively endorsing Israel's war on Gaza.
The resolution, entitled "A resolution a resolution expressing solidarity with Israel in Israel's defense against terrorism in the Gaza Strip."
US weaponry is being used by Israel (Goliath) - and I want to know where Hamas is getting its rocketry (David.) Ironic that David and Goliath seem to have have switched sides since the olden days, and I suppose it's Iran providing David his rocks and slingshots.
Well, the aggression of the Saturn-Uranus opposition is really showing itself, isn't it? Saturn-Uranus as a pair represents the Middle East and specifically Palestine and Israel.
Their appr 45-year cycle began with conjunction 3 times in 1988 in the 27 to 30 degree area of Sagittarius where transformative Pluto, god of Hades, has traversed so recently.
So at the risk of boring you, here's the midpoint picture again which Pluto's transit has stimulated so grievously:
Saturn-Uranus = Pluto: acts of violence or brutality; rebellion against one's lot in life; harm through force majeure; tremendous fear of loss; upheaval to protect assets; the desire to overcome a difficult situation through extraordinary effort.
With Pluto now into Capricorn to stay, we might hope things will be resolved (as much as they ever are in that region of old and deep animosities) but then we have World Point 00Cap00 to consider where world events manifest, and the deconstruction of Pluto in Capricorn, ruled by authoritative Saturn. Any contact of Saturn and Pluto seems made for cruelty of various kinds.
'Forgiving the unforgivable' seems very far away as the New Year rolls on, doesn't it? But it's the only way to stop the cycle of violence and revenge in Gaza - and within our own hearts.
As Scriptures say, we should Pray for the peace of Israel. For the sake of the world, let us pray.
