Scalar Weaponry Alert: Manufacturing Earthquakes? More Scalar attacks on Iran?

Over the last several weeks, the Israeli government has seemed particularly concerned about the threat of large scale earthquakes. Looking at this recent seismic activity, one can only wonder if Israel is now taking extra earthquake preparedness measures...because they know something we do not.

MORE SCALAR ATTACKS ON IRAN? LIKE THE ONE AT BAM? Additionally, as pointed out by a reader of the Surfing the Apocalypse website, media in Iran reported that on June 29th, 2004, a quaked measured at 6.2 by the National Earthquake Information Center in Denver, CO, killed over 25 people, and injured 400.

Over the last several weeks, the Israeli government has seemed particularly concerned about the threat of large scale earthquakes.

On June 14th, Israel tested a new "earthquake measuring device" by setting off a 28-ton explosion that registered 2.9 on the richter scale. The test was done in the Negev deser near the border with Jordan. Source:

On July 1st, 2004, The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles reported that Professor Vladimir Kellis-Borok, a UCLA seismologist who has achieved notoriety in California for his ability to forecast earthquakes, is actively seeking to provide his services to the Israeli government. The JJOGL writes, "Keilis-Borok is convinced that Israeli seismologists, geophysicists and mathematicians have the Yiddishe kop (Jewish brains) to build on his method and warn their country and the surrounding Arab nations of impending major quakes. He urges his Israeli colleagues to shrei gevalt (scream for help) to persuade their government to fund their work." Link:  http://www.jewishjournal.com/home/preview.php?id=12485

While earthquakes are not rare in the area, the last major one to strike in 1927, near Jericho in the West Bank, measuring 6.3 on the richter scale. The quake killed more than 200 people.
It is perhaps worth noting that another country to be taking earthquake preparedness measures is Delhi, which announced on June 20th its plan to draw up "earthquake vulnerability maps." Link: www.indiaexpress.com

It is also worth noting that earthquakes around the globe have made news headlines numerous times over the last 3 weeks. A list of the most significant activity

Earthquake Activity For Past Seven Days - Normal? 05.Jul.2004 18:28

Earthquake Activity For Past Seven Days - Normal?
By Michael Goodspeed

7-4-4

I received an email this morning from a woman named Shelby who read my article, "Why Is Israel Taking Earthquake Preparedness Measures?" She directed me to the website for the Earthquake Hazards Program website of the USGS, which outlined earthquake activity around the globe for the past seven days. (Link:  http://wwwneic.cr.usgs.gov/neis/bulletin/bulletin.html )

Here is her comment:

Re: WHY IS ISRAEL TAKING EARTHQUAKE PREPAREDNE....

Sorry for the intrusion! I just wanted to say I appreciated your post about Israel's interest in earthquake plans...

I have watched this website for 5 yrs now. When I began, all the earthquakes ran in the 2 and 3's. The big ones were rare...now most all are 4's and 5's and even 6's are commomplace...

It is remarkable that when you scroll all the way down there is a map of the world with all the places they are occuring. I have never seen it so diverse. There are places I have never seen them have an earthquake. Frankly, this is scary.

Best Regards,
Shelby (last name withheld)

Here is the list of earthquake activity for the last SEVEN DAYS. And let me again make the point that I am not a seismologist, so I am genuinely curious if this level of acitivity is considered NORMAL for a SEVEN DAY PERIOD. (For all I know, it may well be.) Please note that the magnitude of the quake is the last two numbers listed before the quake's location.
