From link - What we are witnessing in east Africa and across much of the Middle East right now is hard to believe. 360 billion locusts are eating everything in sight, and UN officials are warning that this plague of “Biblical proportions” could get many times worse over the next several months. Desert locusts can travel up to 93 miles a day, and each adult can consume the equivalent of its own weight in food every 24 hours. These voracious little creatures are traveling in absolutely colossal swarms that are up to 40 miles wide, and they continue to push into new areas. If urgent action is not taken on a massive scale, millions upon millions of people could soon have next to nothing to eat.
There are less than 8 billion people living on the entire planet.
So this swarm of locusts outnumbers us by a margin of more than 45 to 1.
And what these locusts want more than anything else is food. If you doubt the destructive power of these swarms, please consider what the FAO’s senior agriculture officer recently had to say…
“It’s certainly the most dangerous migratory pest in the world, desert locust,” said Keith Cressman, FAO’s senior agriculture officer. “A swarm the size of Rome can eat enough food in one day as everybody in Kenya.” ... Experts warn that if left unchecked, the number of locusts could grow by 500 times by June...
My thoughts - I could see this as being a possible trigger for war against Israel. This could cause starvation for millions of people in the Mid-east. Could cause economic collapse for some of those countries. Meanwhile Israel is sitting on "treasures" that the mid-east countries will covet. To me this is definitely something to keep an eye on.

EnochWalked: "Senior officials in both the United Torah Judaism and Shas parties [said] that if Netanyahu refuses to compromise on the state budget, they will refuse to publicly support the premier as they have done in recent elections." Maybe Gantz isn't alone here.
