Ezekiel’s Years: In the Nineth Year:

28 November 1971
Ezekiel 24:1.

“The word of Yehuveh came expressly unto Ezekiel. . . .”
Ezekiel 1:3.

28 November 1971:
Nineth year, tenth month, tenth day  
9y 10m 10d
    Based on
19 November 1971 = 10m 1d with moon at 3%.
Summary: This is perhaps the most graphic of all the dates Ezekiel highlights. Yehuveh Himself focused singular attention on this date, which indeed proved to be a startling turn-point in both Israeli and world events. Black September [Organization] came on the scene this day with the assination of the Jordanian Prime Minister, Wash Tel, and an open announcement of much more to come. Violent international terrorism, virtually born this day, has shadowed the world ever since.  Study all of Ezekiel 24.
Scriptural Reference: Ezekiel 24:1-2.

“Again in the ninth year, in the tenth month, in the tenth day of the month, the word of Yehuveh came unto me, saying, Son of man, write thee the name of the day, even of this same day: the king of Babylon set himself against Jerusalem this same day.”

History and Related Events
: Yehuveh emphasized this date, telling Ezekiel to write “the name of the day, even of this same day.” The horrible event of this day indeed marked a turning point for Israel and for the world.
        “On 28 November 1971, an organization which was to leave an indelible mark on the history of political terror and the modern Middle East committed its first murder. Four armed Palestinians, operating in broad daylight and without the benefit of masks, shot dead the Jordanian Prime Minister, Wash Tel, as he returned to Cairo’s Sheraton Hotel from an Arab League meeting. The assination itself was followed by a gruesome ritual as one of the kllers knelt down, lalpped up and drank some of Tel’s flowing blood and shouted several times that he and his accomplices belonged to Black September.”
        “28 November 1971: In Egypt, four members of the Black September Organization assinated Wasfi Tall, the Jordanian Prime Minister, in Cairo. This was the first public mention of the PLO/Fatah/Fedayeen derivative. . . . The Black September Organization was formed in late 1970 or early 1971 as a clandestine wing of al-Fatah and the P.L.O. . . . Ultimately, the BSO became the PLO’s international terrorist arm.” It was the BSO which claimed responsibilty for the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at Munich in the summer of 1972, a year later.
        “Prime Minister Wasfi Tell was killed in Cairo, with which the Palestinians . . . announced the surrection of the Black September movement. The terrorist movement was led by Mohammed Yasif Najjai (Abu Youssef), . . . one of Arafat’s two trustees. . . The movement is the secret branch of al-Fatah.”
        “Incident No. 27: 4 members of Black September, arrested in Cairo [on 28 September 1971] . . . freed in January 1973.”
