BIN: “Divine retribution struck Thursday nights as world powers gathered in Paris for talks that could end in attempts to pressure Israel to accept a Palestinian state.
The conference ended and a divine reaction was almost immediate as the Seine River rose 20 feet overnight. Parts of the Metro system shut down, as did major landmarks. The Louvre museum was also closed as staff worked desperately to move 250,000 priceless works of art to safety. The Orsay Museum also scrambled to save its collections. Four people died and 4 were injured in France in the worst flood the country had seen in 30 years.
More than 20,000 people have been evacuated in France since the weekend and 19,000 homes in and around Paris remain without electricity. The capital city remains under the second-highest alert, which warns of a “significant impact”. Experts say it will take at least ten days for the flooding to return to normal levels.”
Opinion: In Friday’s post “Paris Floods Peak During Peace Talks Push” we recounted the perfect storm of 1991 that damaged the Bush Kennebunkport home on the same day that George H. Bush took the podium at the Madrid Peace talks to negotiate dividing Jerusalem in another failed attempt at a two-state solution.
Today we take a look at the Gaza Expulsion plan:
The land for peace scheme devised by Ariel Sharon and George W. Bush gave Gaza’s 9,000 Jewish residents until August 15, 2005, to completely vacate all private homes and businesses. Hurricane Katrina, the deadliest in US history hit the US on August 23, 2005.
The following year, Prime Minister Sharon went into a coma and the Bush presidency suffered widespread criticism for his handling of Katrina and lost the majority in Congress in 2006. The Bush presidency never recovered, and neither did Sharon who remains in a vegetative state.
