"Test Your WWIII-IQ" Contest
Last week's question was "On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, which two well-established terrorist groups officially took credit for the attack on America while it was still in progress?". This week's winner, Shmuel of New York City, knew his stuff; he hit the bulls-eye precisely. The two groups were the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) and the Islamic Jihad. Both groups called up Arab media to take formal responsibility for the jointly coordinated suicide hijackings, hoping to terrorize Americans into turning against Israel. Within the hour, when the buildings unexpectedly collapsed entirely, both groups called back—this time to deny responsibility, now that Americans were angry enough for war. Both the DFLP (an openly Communist member group of the PLO) and the Islamic Jihad (which coordinates its activities closely with the PLO) have carried out suicide attacks for decades, and independent evidence tends to corroborate their original claim of responsibility. The Bush Administration continues to ignore this well-publicized evidence in searching for Usama Bin Laden, a bank account manager for other terrorist groups.
Now for this week's question:
|This year, Soviet Russia plans to deploy a new line of upgraded nuclear missiles aimed at the United States. What is the name of this new type of missile?|

Letters to the Editor
"I was extremely interested to read your article http://www.noahide.com/reds2.htm that mentioned the 'King of Gog/Amalek'... If you don't mind, could you tell me the historical source that links the Amalekite King Agag to 'Gog'? I was unable to find a direct link in the Bible, so I wondered if there was another primary source for this link...."—Jeff in Tx
Our response: The identity of King Gog (the prophetic force that would lead the nations of the world in a war against G-d and the Jewish people) as descending from the seed of Amalek is alluded to in a variety of sources in the Jewish oral traditions. That King Gog would be from the descendants of Esav/Edom (which include Amalek) is mentioned in such sources as the Targum of Yonasan ben Uziel on Isaiah 11:4, Bereishis Rabba 76:5, and others. This specifically means Amalek, as implied by the Lubavitcher Rebbe (e.g., Likkutei Sichos 1, Parshas Yisro, no. 9)
