The Israeli Flag — Unanswered Questions

According to a Jewish ynet report, Nakhba day was observed with demonstrations in what the Israelis call “the Arab sector” of Israel as well as in the West Bank and in Gaza, in Cairo and in Tehran.

Except for a few stones thrown by teenagers at checkpoints, quickly responded to with their customary gentle firmness by the IDF, the event was without violence in Israel and the occupied territories (OT).

The ynet report notes that Israeli flags were burned — which is in fact injurious violence in its own way — in all the locales, and supplies the photographs to prove it.

No figures are given for how many flags were burned in Israel and the (OT) but, interestingly enough, the report informs the reader with precision that during the Nakhba demonstration in Teheran 64 Israeli flags were burned and stepped on. That is indeed high-value information yet it prompts many questions.

  • Why did the Israeli intelligence fail to count the number of flags burnt in Israel and the OT?
  • Should 64 be viewed as a large number for Iran, a numerical indication of Iran’s growing desire to wipe Israel off the map, for which we need to be told how many were burned on previous occasion?
  • On the contrary, is 64 a surprisingly small number attributable perhaps to the fact that Israeli flags are rather hard to come by in Iran?
  • Who manufactures the Israeli flags and who sells them to the demonstrators?
  • Are they smuggled through the tunnels from Egypt?
  • Or is it a Jewish supplier, and if so is he a self-hating Jew or a pragmatic businessman?
  • Does he have a production chart tied to Palestinian landmark anniversaries?
  • Does he have mixed feelings about conflicts at checkpoints, given his business plans?
  • Are the flags produced in the settlements and thus subject to boycott?
  • Or are they, like so much else everywhere in the world, actually made in China?
  • Is 64 a number with some kabbalistic significance? Or is it a code?

What wikipedia has to say about 64 scares me stiff because I don’t understand a word of it but know enough to sense that it is rather ominous:

It is the smallest number with exactly 7 divisors, the lowest positive power of two that is adjacent to neither a Mersenne prime nor a Fermat prime, the sum of Euler’s totient function for the first fourteen integers. It is also a dodecagonal number and a centered triangular number. It is a superperfect number [emphasis added, wikipedia does not emote) – a number such that σ(σ(n))=2n.

Just who is sending a message to whom and what is the message?!

Just worrying.

    The point is this independence day is Israel’s 64th birthday. I assume they burned 64 flags in Tehran as part of some ceremony.

      YES! Exactly! A ceremony!
      Now put that together with the data from Roy’s scholarly research –thank you, Roy!–and what do you get?

      By BURNING exactly 64 Israeli flags the Iranians performed a ceremony that has the opposite effect of that from drinking of a 64-word Kabbalah cup.
      It is a BURNT OFFERING to have this year, the 64th year of existence of the state of Israel, be its last.
      If this does not make your hair stand on end you must be bald.

      I admit I did not believe until now that Iran represented an existential threat for the state of Israel but this ceremony showed me was wrong. And now it is too late. I see the specter of one state looming over the horizon in all its terrifying inevitability.

        “If this does not make your hair stand on end you must be bald.”

        I am bald and yet it made my hair stand up on end 🙁

        “It is a BURNT OFFERING to have this year, the 64th year of existence of the state of Israel, be its last.”

        Especially after I went to Beginner Level Kabbalah and found that the numerical value of the word “prophecy” (נבואה ) in Hebrew is 64.

        This cannot be a mere co-incidence, and I am more convinced than ever that Cosmo has been sent here to keep us from knowing the horrible truth.

        Israelis must be extremely concerned that the Iranians are acting to make this prophecy about their demise come true.

          And I am not a goose and yet I got goose bumps reading your newest findings.
          I agree with everything you say except this:
          “Cosmo has been sent here to keep us from knowing the horrible truth”
          I don’t see him like that. I think he is just a Kabbalah-naive Doomsday denier (DD).

            Referring to a Book! – the Sepher Sephiroth Qabalistic Dictionary.
            64=A sigh, groan, Deep Breath

      Independence from whom exactly?

    I think cosmo might be trying to throw you off the scent Ms. Theokopoulos

    “Is 64 a number with some kabbalistic significance?”

    Four Rivers Kabbalah Cup

    “The Four Rivers Kiddush Cup is designed based on the writings of the RaShash, an 18th century Kabbalist. On the outside of the cup are the names of the four rivers that flowed through the Garden of Eden. Inside the cup are engraved sixty-four different words that are derived from the letters of the names of the four rivers. One who drinks from this cup, according to Kabbalistic teachings, is granted the secrets and blessings of healing from any sicknesses, mental or physical, and infertility.”

    i had been wondering for years about what the real meaning of this is:

    now i know.

    • Ariadna Theokopoulos May 16, 2012 at 11:38 pm #

      Incredible! They could have said ’62’–easy to rhyme with –or any other number, yet they chose ’64.’
      Is it possible the Beattles knew so much ahead of time?

        going by mccartney’s current personality, he’s been let inside. 😀
