Decapitations, Dawns, Masked Men, and Tridents

September 9-11 Alert:

How is it that we find ourselves here? At this juncture of history, after recent years of writings on red dawns, auroras, beheadings, dark knights, masked men, and tridents, we rush towards an exact moment in time foreshadowed in our nightmares (predestined for madness?) by the Libyan Dawn, the Masked Men Brigade, ISIS, and indirectly, the Rapid Trident exercise.

An Islamist fighter from the Fajr Libya (Libyan Dawn) coalition flashes the V sign for victory at the entrance of Tripoli international airport on August 24, 2014 - and his truck has an enigmatic "17" painted on its door. (For more on the synchromystical significance that some give to the number 17, see here.)

What hellish path brings us to this temporal point, with September 9th to September 11th on the horizon for the Mideast? And what is to occur with a mid-September "Rapid Trident" exercise in the Ukraine?

Beheadings are in the news, thanks to ISIS. And thanks to tabloid journalism. These acts of terror have been placed to the forefront of news reportage for over a decade. They are graphic, individual attacks of terror. The list is growing long.

On September 1, 2014, using a similar method - a cable, a wooden pole, and a car - Tomas Rivera, 51, of Port Jervis, New York, decapitated himself in Hunts Point, Bronx, New York. Source.

Both news reports used exactly the same wording that the men "hit the gas" before killing themselves.

Tragic and horrible, of course. Perhaps the American suicides are related to the copycat suicidal atmosphere in the USA, in the wake of the Robin Williams self-hanging? Perhaps the UK beheading is stimulated by the beheadings in the news of Sotloff and Foley?  But is there something more wicked this way coming?

Libyan Dawn/Masked Men Brigade

Eleven - yes, 11 - commercial airliners have been stolen by the Masked Men Brigade or the Libyan Dawn or both in Tripoli. And where does ISIS fit in this picture?

Tripoli International Airport was overtaken by the group Libyan Dawn in August 2014, and now 11 aircraft for Libyan Airlines and Afriqiyah Airways are missing.

September 9-11 Anniversary Syndrome

There is great concern for what might be ahead for next Thursday, on the anniversary of September 11.

But the focus on the 11th could be a danger, in and of itself.

This year's Supermoon on September 9th is metaphorically creating a tidal wave of human emotions in ways unimagined. But astronomy is not the key. It is the human elements in play that will cause what we see unfold.

The 13th anniversary of 9/11 is reinforced with the second anniversary of the attack on the American embassy on September 11, 2012, and killing of former Navy SEALS and American diplomats at Benghazi, Libya.

Human behavior forecasting is not a parlor game. It is a real life exercise to attempt to predict real time behaviors (actions, conduct, performance) that call forth protective factors that should be put in place, and prevention measures to employ to keep our friends out of harms' way.

The anniversary syndrome is strong at this time of year. You can actually "feel it in the air," with the changing seasons.

Here are some events tied to incidents in the past that jumped out during my examination of the dates September 9-11:

September 9 ~
1970 – A British airliner is hijacked by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and flown to Dawson's Field (a remote desert airstrip near Zarka, formerly used as a British Royal Air Force base) in Jordan.
2001 – Ahmed Shah Massoud, leader of the Northern Alliance, is assassinated in Afghanistan by two al Qaeda assassins who claimed to be Arab journalists wanting an interview.
2004 – A bomb explodes outside the Australian embassy in Jakarta, killing 10 people.
2012 – A wave of attacks kill more than 108 people and injure 351 others in Iraq.

September 10 ~ 
1898 – Empress Elizabeth of Austria is assassinated by Luigi Lucheni.
1939 – World War II: The submarine HMS Oxley is mistakenly sunk by the submarine HMS Triton near Norway and becomes the Royal Navy's first loss.
1976 – A British Airways Hawker Siddeley Trident and an Inex-Adria DC-9 collide near Zagreb, Yugoslavia, killing 176.
2000 – Operation Barras successfully frees six British soldiers held captive for over two weeks and contributes to the end of the Sierra Leone Civil War.
2001 – Antonio da Costa Santos, mayor of Campinas, Brazil is assassinated.
2003 – Anna Lindh, the foreign minister of Sweden, is fatally stabbed (assassinated) while shopping, and dies the following day.

September 11 ~
1922 – The British mandate of Palestine begins.
1939 – Iraq and Saudi Arabia declares war on Nazi-Germany. 
1968 – Air France Flight 1611 crashes off Nice, France, killing 89 passengers and 6 crew.
1970 – The Dawson's Field hijackers release 88 of their hostages. The remaining hostages, mostly Jewish and Israeli citizens, are held until September 25.
The origins of the Black September movement began with Arafat's clashes with Jordan, intriguingly due to hijacked planes. On September 6-12, 1970, four TWA, Swissair and BOAC planes were hijacked (the El Al one failed), destroyed, and this was directly tied to Palestine civil uprisings and the resulting suppression that was to be called Jordan's "Black September." 
1972 – The Munich Summer Olympics end. At this Olympics the "Black September" terrorists killed 11 Israeli athletes, on the 5th.
1974 – Eastern Air Lines Flight 212 crashes in Charlotte, North Carolina, killing 69 passengers and two crew.
1976 – A group of Croatian nationalists plant a bomb in a coin locker at Grand Central Terminal. After stating political demands, they reveal the location and provide instructions for disarming the bomb. The disarming operation is not executed properly, killing one NYPD bomb squad specialist.
1994 – A private plane attempts to crash into the White House.
2001 – Two hijacked aircraft crash into the World Trade Center in New York City, while a third smashes into The Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia, and a fourth into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, in a series of coordinated suicide attacks by 19 members of al-Qaeda. Altogether, 2,996 people are killed.
2003 – Swedish foreign minister Anna Lindh dies from her assassination stabbing of the previous day.
2012 – The U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya is attacked, resulting in four deaths. U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service Information Officer Sean Smith, and CIA contractors and former Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed during the series of raids, commencing at nightfall and continuing into the next morning.


There is something special about the number 11 to terrorists, no doubt about it. Such incidents as the 3/11 [2005] Madrid, 7/11 [2006] Mumbai, and 9/11 [2001] terrorist attacks serve as misnamed “celebrity events” that become models copied by other Islamic extremists.

Pakistani Ramzi Ahmed Yousef, the alleged Al-Qaeda mastermind behind the first World Trade Center bombing, was quoted as saying after the failed 1993 attempt that they would do it right the second time. He was also the brains behind the elaborate Bojinka, translated as “the explosion.” This was a plot to place bombs on 11 American jetliners and have them all explode on the same day, over the Pacific Ocean. 

Yousef carried out a test run for Bojinka by planting a bomb that detonated on Philippines Airlines Flight 434, on December 11, 1994. One tourist was killed, ten injured. Yousef called the Associated Press after this bombing, to give credit to Abu Sayyaf. His friend Khalid Sheik Mohammed would launch the deadly September 11 terrorist attacks, which were built from parts of Operation Bojinka.  

It does not seem to be a coincidence that the first airliner to crash into the Twin Towers (a symbolic 11) was American Airlines (AA = 11) Flight 11.

The flight number for the American Airlines plane that crashed into the Pentagon was 77.

As noted in the opening of my 2004 book The Copycat Effect: How the Media and Popular Culture Trigger the Mayhem in Tomorrow's Headlines, September 11th was the date of an assault by a private plane on the White House, in 1994, although the attack is little remembered today. 

September 11th is not to be ignored. But is there a growing "danger zone" around that date now?

For this September 2014, avoid letting your guard down on the 9th and 10th, just because you know you should be on alert on the 11th. Also, realign the hot spots of awareness from land-based sites, and think outside the box. While watching Iraq, Syria, and Ukraine, be careful of soft symbolic targets linked to those that are identified with, for example, the U.S. Navy (tridents), political figures (dark knights/assassinations), and auroras (red dawn attacks). 

A storm is coming. The Dark Knight still rises. We are at a concurrence of circumstances that will be revealed, soon enough. It is up to you to prevent them. Yes, you. Be alert, be safe, and be proactive.

September 11, 1973 gets no mention?

It was four years ago, in Norman, Oklahoma, that pranksters beheaded that city's iconic Sinclair gas station dinosaur. The head was later found and returned (and reattached). I was thinking about that when I read this latest post from Loren. I then glanced over at Drudge and saw two headlines, one over the other. The first read: "New dinosaur seven times bigger than T.Rex found in Argentina." Below it ... "SHOCK: Woman found beheaded in London garden."

Just heard about the death of Joan Rivers - echoes of Robin Williams' death, as the were both comedians and Rivers' last name continues the 'body of water' theme.

Just sad.

Here are a few thoughts (certainly not my own, but they caught my attention) regarding our Western view on the number 11 and how it is viewed in the Koran.

"The sum of numbers 1 to 11 is 66, which multiplying eleven by the number symbol of the evil, the diabolic 6"

The first time the word ‘Allah’ is mentioned is in this verse: ‘in the name of Allah, The Most Gracious The Most Merciful’ (1:1) 

Say: He is Allah the One and Only,  contains 11 letters.

September 11, 1973 marked the beginning of Augusto Pinochet's military coup against the Allende government of Chile. Rammed Earth's URL leads to YouTube video of a song by Victor Jara, a Chilean musician and activist who was murdered by the Pinochet government some time between September 15 and 17, after days of torture.

9 is the number of war and destruction. 17 is the number of sacrifice, excretion and annihilation, as well as lies, delusion, fanaticism and hatred. Note that the crescent moon + a pentagram = 2+15 = 17. 11 is the number of the warrior, strategy and conquest, victory. Note that the V-sign is a 2, and 1+1 = 2. 18 is the number of predation, opposition, evil, enslavement. Note that the hexagram consists of 18 line-segments.

As a note, "Muslim" resp. Allahist militants do not represent or practise true Islam, which is mainly concerned with economic fairness and deference to the laws fo nature. Nonetheless, negative mental forces are at hard work among the Muslim nations.

Following the September 9-11 window, there will be a week of climate change and social justice protests from September 17-24. It starts in New York City on the 17th with the third anniversary of Occupy Wall Street and moves on to a climate change protest march on the 21st that is aimed at the UN's climate summit which begins on the 23rd. The official march looks like it will be tightly contained by the NYPD -- but there are also plans for independent actions and civil disobedience, as well as protests in other cities and countries. Add in that this will be the first major protest since the upheaval in Ferguson and there is a potential for unanticipated cultural energies to be at work, possibly cutting through the overly tidy nature of the present-day environmental movement.

As far as numbers go, 17 is certainly of interest. It's prime. In binary, it's 10001. If 16 ((2x2)x(2x2)) is the ultimate square number, then 17 is the ultimate hip number. And 23 has its own oddities. I could see disruptive things happening on either the 17th or the 23rd -- the 21st not so much.

@Matthew - are you aware of 11 being the "magical number of expansion"? That has stuck with me for several years, but I don't remember exactly where I read it.

Stay safe, fellow Twilighters.

I am not familiar with that concept, however, perhaps it was meant that any number multiplied by 11 produces the sum of its digits between its digits, e.g. 35*11 = 385; or perhaps it refers to the fact that 11*101 = 1111, so it is a factor of all the 4-fold repdigits. 11 in its basic meaning is force.

The crescent moon with a star next to it can be taken as representing Mercury conjunct the Moon, which is called Lucifer, especially when rising oriental of the Sun. Note that both the Aurora cinema-shooting and the Clackamas Town Center shooting happened with Mercury conjunct the Moon. Lucifer is also called phosphorus, atomic number 15 = 555 = a pentagram. Note that the US military used white phosphorus on Iraqi Muslims. Lucifer falling.

Ahh..The number 11( keep in mind that the Letter K is the eleventh letter in the alphabet … gives one pause of the real meaning of KKK ) Several years ago I had a 11:11 experience/dream ( at the time, didn’t have a clue about all this ‘hidden stuff as I’ve been a humble bank teller most all my working life… but have had prophetic dreams almost all my life ). What’I’ve learned since ( through dreams and then the research of the dreams ) has been absolutely fascinating and believe it or not ( as I’m sure most people on this blog do ) it’s all connected to popular culture, events, numbers, synchronicity, astrology. 2012, Y2K ( yes, Y2 K ), Rosicrucian’s, Freemason ( et al, they’re all the same guy )..Georgia Guide Stones, scared sciences etc etc.
But staying on point to the beheadings… Isn’t it interesting all the recent ‘head wounds’ ( Michael Brown )
and of course the beheadings mentioned here ( and the ice bucket challenge over the head )
