    What does the Red Moon mean for Israel.

    A red moon due to an eclipse (Lavanah) has been viewed as a bad omen for the nation of Israel. Anciently, a blood red moon symbolized violence, war, and evil factions rising up against the nation of Israel. A red moon has historically and 'scripturally' meant a period of judgment for the wicked. In history, many battles and wars coincided with an eclipse. Given the turmoil in the ME; any thoughts or insight on this subject?

    To me: uncork the napalm, it's time to smell some fumes in the morning.

    I had never heard of a red moon until you mentioned it. I had heard of a red sky at night and in the morning and what they meant to shepherds.

    Here's a nice shot of a red moon (they claim it's orange but it's clearly red) above Jerusalem's Old City.
    As a youth I used to weep in butcher's shops.

    Sailors have a similar saying:

    Red sky at morning, sailor take warning;
    Red sky at night, sailors delight.
