When the Exiles began to come back to the land, one thing was simple: The Jews will have all the money, but farming and military will be pathetic there...so the pundits thought.
Fast forward to the middle of the tenure, something strange was happening: The Jews could farm and fight, but where was the money?
Now, in 2011, did The Erev Rav figure out the trifecta? Read these 3 articles to gain perspective:
Farming: Among Israel's many achievements the Ministry of Agriculture’s Research Institute near Rishon le Tzion produces staggering results in long and better shelf life for fruits and vegetables. That allows to be shipped by sea instead of air , thus reducing export costs. Many of Israel's agriculturalists also avoid chemicals and achieve larger crops with the aid of the use of colors. In addition, Israe's water shortage prevents cultivating grass for cattle food, yet the 'milk yield' of Israeli cows is the best in the world! Israel National Radio's Water Bingham explains it all on his called, Walter's World.
It is the first time a U.S. military institution has stated that Israel has produced a hydrogen bomb. The number of purported Israeli nuclear weapons cited in the report is double that of previous assessments.
The report, sponsored by the air force's Counterproliferation Center, asserts that the navy can deploy any of what it asserts is Israel's 400 atomic and hydrogen weapons, Middle East Newsline reported. The center is located in the Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama.
In a report entitled "The Third Temple's Holy of Holies: Israel's Nuclear Weapons," U.S. Army Col. Warner Farr said Israel's nuclear arsenal has grown from an estimated 13 nuclear bombs in 1967 to 400 nuclear and thermonuclear weapons. Farr said Israel's navy could deploy nuclear weapons on the fleet of three German-built Dolphin-class diesel submarines.
"Israel will then have a second strike capability with nuclear cruise missiles, and this capability could well change the nuclear arms race in the Middle East," the report, which Farr said is based on unclassified sources, read. "Israeli rhetoric on the new submarines labels them 'national deterrent' assets."
The report said these nuclear missiles could have a range of 350 kilometers. Israel would try to base its nuclear naval force near Oman, with which Israel has informal relations, the September 1999 report, which was recently published by the center, said.
"The first basing options for the new second-strike force of nuclear missile capable submarines include Oman, an Arab nation with unofficial Israeli relations, located strategically near Iran," the report said.

Money: JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Standard & Poor's has upgraded Israel's credit rating to A+.
The new rating, which was issued Saturday, means that Israel's Finance Ministry can borrow at a lower interest rate with lower financing costs. Israel's rating had been A; the highest rating is AAA.
S&P said, "The rating action reflects our view of Israel's improved economic policy flexibility as a result of strong growth and careful macroeconomic management," S& P said.
The agency went on to say that "Israel is on a credible path toward continued government debt burden reduction and stronger external indicators."
S&P said it did not believe that the social protests in Israel would affect the country's budget or budget deficit.
Stanley Fischer, the governor of the Bank of Israel, in reaction to the upgraded credit rating, said the Israeli economy would continue to justify the confidence given by the upgrade and that the bank through its monetary policies would target price stability, employment, growth and financial stability.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that the upgrade was the international economic community's "certificate of honor and of responsibility regarding investments in Israel."
"This is a message to investors. This is a good country," he said. "This is a country that in complete contrast to the global trend is improving and maintaining a correct and responsible economy, and therefore it is worthwhile to invest in it."
Emes: The picture is not all rosy for the Erev Rav: As the Erev Rav includes the Erev Katan, the "religious" branch of evil infiltration of The Jewish People. The Jewish people experience the concept of Aliyah,to go up in greatness..whereas the religious evil is in essential free fall.
It was said of the End of Days, Emes / Truth will be lacking in those days.
Money+ Farming+ Military - Truth = Failure!
May Moshiach come soon and flourish with Emes, so we can return to the Real Eretz Yisrael, one with the Beis Hamikdash built and a built up Jerusalem..connected to Jerusalem above, Derech Bais Shlishi...Ezekial's Temple.
Money will turn to Tzedaka
Farming will turn to Myser
Military will turn to planting the Land
And Emes will sprout from the Earth (Eretz Yisrael)
Moshiach 5772....The war with the Erev Rav will be the most bitter (especially one with power after waiting for thousands of years to reign unmitigated)
