Around the world, the signs of the apocalypse -as outlined in the Book of Revelation-and that the unfolding events may spell disaster..
Quote:
The Dolphin class is actually two related sub-classes of diesel-electric submarine developed and constructed by Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft AG (HDW), Germany for the Israeli Navy..The Dolphin 2 class are the largest submarines to have been built in Germany since WW2.. The Dolphin class boats are the most expensive single vehicles in the Israel Defense Forces and are considered among the most sophisticated and capable conventionally powered submarines in the world..Each Dolphin-class submarine is capable of carrying a combined total of up to 16 torpedoes and SLCMs.. The cruise missiles have a range of at least 1,500 km (930 mi) and are widely believed to be equipped with a 200-kilogram (440 lb) nuclear warhead containing up to 6 kilograms (13 lb) of plutonium.. The latter, if true, would provide Israel with an offshore nuclear second strike capability..

The names Dolphin and Leviathan hail from the retired Israeli WWII-era submarines of the British T class; the third boat Tekuma (translation: Revival) refers in memory of Dakar, the third Israeli boat of the T class which was lost in 1968 with all Israeli crew in the Mediterranean Sea during delivery. The forthcoming boats Tanin and Rahav are names taken from retired Gal-class submarines, which were themselves named after even older Israeli S class boats..In 2006 Israel signed a contract with ThyssenKrupp to purchase two additional submarines from its HDW subsidiary..On July 6, the Government of Germany decided to finance an advance to start the construction, about €170 million, planned for delivery in 2012.. The two submarines cost, overall, around €1.3 billion, of up to one-third was subsidized by Germany..Yet in 2011, Israel ordered a sixth Dolphin-class submarine, for which it was reported to pay the unsubsidized cost of US$1 billion.. However, in July 2011, during a meeting between German Defense Minister Thomas de Maizière and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense minister Ehud Barak, an agreement was reached to subsidize €135 million of the US$500–700 million cost of the 6th submarine..Der Spiegel reported that Germany had threatened to pull out of the deal over new Israeli settlement expansion..

In response to rumours that Israeli submarines might be allowed to secretly base in Bahrain, an island kingdom in the Persian Gulf near Iran, the commander in chief of Bahrain's defense forces, Sheikh bin Ahmad Al-Khalifa stated to the Iranian ambassador Hossein Amir Abdollahian "We view the Zionist regime as our enemy and the enemy of all Muslim world.. Bahrain in no way allows Tel Aviv [Israeli military forces] to be present in its territorial waters."..According to two contradictory Sudanese media reports, in November or December 2011 two Israeli air raids against Gaza-bound weapon smugglers in Sudan were accompanied by Israeli submarine activity off the Sudanese coast..The Sudanese government claims no strikes took place..In February 2012, Ynet, the online version of the Israeli newspaper Yediot Achronot, reported that for security reasons applicants for the submarine service with dual citizenship or citizenship in addition to Israeli, which is common in Israel with a relatively high percentage of olim (immigrants), must officially renounce all other citizenships to be accepted into the training program...

Leviathan or The Matter, Forme and Power of a Common Wealth Ecclesiasticall and Civil—commonly referred to as Leviathan—is a book written by Thomas Hobbes (1588–1679) and published in 1651 (revised Latin edition 1668).. Its name derives from the biblical Leviathan ( Hebrew: לִוְיָתָן, Modern Livyatan Tiberian Liwyāṯān ; "twisted, coiled") is a sea monster referenced in the Tanakh, or the Old Testament..The word has become synonymous with any large sea monster or creature.. In literature (e.g., Herman Melville's Moby-Dick) it refers to great whales, and in Modern Hebrew, it simply means "whale".. It is described extensively in Job 41 and mentioned in Psalm 104:26 and Isaiah 27:1..

The Sanskrit adjective kuṇḍalin means "circular, annular".. It does occur as a noun for ("a snake" in the sense "coiled", as in "forming ringlets") in the 12th-century Rajatarangini chronicle (I.2). Kuṇḍa, a noun with the meaning "bowl, water-pot" is found as the name of a Naga in Mahabharata 1.4828. The 8th-century Tantrasadbhava Tantra uses the term kundalī ("ring, bracelet; coil (of a rope)")...
