"again to Jerusalem" - World Trade Center in 1974 and Obama in 2008

Mt. Fuji viewed from Tokyo

World Trade Center in 1974 and Obama in 2008

In 1974, a man walked on a wire rope set between the two towers of the World Trade Center, New York.

It was made into a movie in 2008, winning various prizes.

The man named Philippe Petit, French, could successfully play performance over 40 minutes in the air 400 meters above the ground.  Nothing tragic happened.  He came back to the ground to be a hero.

However, 27 years later the World Trade Center was demolished by an act of terror.  About 3,000 people were killed there.  And this incident triggered the US War on Terror, with invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq both of which turned to be nonsense as we look back today to the sequence of the subsequent events.  Afghanistan and Iraq were not attacking the US.  But, this American movement caused great instability in the Islamic world, resulting in today's tragedies in Syria and Iraq as well as other Islamic nations.

God saved the life of one performer walking in the space between the roofs of the two World Trade Center towers in 1974, but He did not save lives of 3,000 people in the World Trade Center in 2001.

Had America committed grave sins in those 27 years that caused the change of attitudes of God on human lives around the World Trade Center?

Accordingly, the first African American President Barack Obama was elected in 2008, like a performer walking in the space between two tall towers.  But will he be the first and only performer in politics like the French performer in terms of the wire act at the top of the World Trade Center?

Mar 11:27 And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders,
Mar 11:28 And say unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority to do these things?
