'7/7 survivor due to give birth on anniversary of attacks...'

'A woman who lost her legs in the July 7 bombings is expected to give birth on the anniversary of the 2005 attacks.

Martine Wright, who was one of the most seriously injured survivors, said she had exclaimed 'Are you joking?' after hearing the baby was due on 7/7.

In an interview with the News of the World, she said: 'When the doctor realised the significance of what it meant, she just blurted out, 'Oh my God'.

'I was so shocked. It's such a powerful date, it's great to think something so joyful could happen on the anniversary.'

It is nice to hear of some good news pending.

And it seems like 7/7 is quite a significant day. The French bank fraudster Jerome Kerveil claimed that on the day of the London bombings, he managed to make an extraordinary profit on the stock market – just lucky I guess … He himself noted, in the article at the attached link, that others made a fortune on stocks on 9/11. Ah yes, they did …

Of course, it is not only stock traders who sometimes seem blessed with useful foreknowledge. Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s leading right-winger and war-monger, recently warned that Al-Qaida could strike at the Christian church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Amazing that he should know of their plans, it is like they must be buddies. But don’t disregard Netanyahu’s prophetic abilities, as noted:

“The leader of the Right-wing Likud opposition recalled that he had warned Islamic terrorists would detonate a nuclear device in the Manhattan World Trade Centre complex in a 1995 book, six years before the September 11 attacks.”
