According to this Voice of America report, "Angola has imposed travel restrictions on people who have visited an area hit hard by an outbreak of the deadly Marburg virus." A scary report for your research on pestilence (Luke 21:11).

Yet another large earthquake has struck Indonesia, killing thousands of people (AP - Indonesian VP: Quake May Kill Up to 2,000). Earthquakes are one of the Olivet Signs, things that Jesus said would happen in with increasing frequency and intensity in the normal course of history as the end times approached. Fortunately, this time, there was no tsunami, which is also a prophetic sign found in Luke 21:25. It's interesting to note that popular Bible prophecy commentators in the late 20th Century dismissed Luke 21:25 as merely a symbol of unrest and not a literal depiction of wave damage. Steeped in the social upheaval of their time, they thought that roaring waves represented the unrest of nations and peoples, protests, riots, revolutions and the like. Now, at the dawn of the 21st Century, we find that nations are filled with fear and perplexity at the roaring waves shattering their coasts.

The goal: to force Israel's government, and all the world's meddlers, to face squarely the issue of who ought to be in charge of the site.
In case anyone doubts either the authenticity or the details of this story, let me observe that WorldNetDaily is one of the most scrupulous news organs in any medium today, and that Aaron Klein, head of WND's Jerusalem Bureau, is one of the finest and bravest journalists in the world today.
This is, of course, not really the place to debate the merits of a geopolitical issue that
- is already foretold to become critical, and
- in any case, won't matter anymore once the Tribulation begins in ernest.
