If you convert the date january 8,2008 from the Gregorian to the Hebrew calendar you get 1 st of Sh'vat 5768. (the first day of the eleventh month,in the fortieth year)after the recapture of the city of Jerusalem. Which occured in 1967. He went to divide the city and attempt to establish a Palestinian state in Israel. The question is this. Do you see any comparison to Deut: 1: 3-8?
