Tel Aviv - Will Jerusalem really be destroyed by a massive comet-induced earthquake on the Jewish Day of Atonement next week?
A 108 year-old scare story from The Protocol of the Elders of Zion is causing widespread paranoia ahead of Yom Kippur next Saturday as decrepit tin foil hatters predict an apocalyptic Judgement Day call.
Hailing from the constellation Draco the Dragon the meteoroid shower originates from Comet Giacobini-Zimmer-Frame which featured so prominently in one of the 20th century's cruellest conspiracy hoaxes said to have inspired the Nazis.
The constellation was an Armageddon prime suspect in the Old Testament where Draco is depicted as the serpent that tempted Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
Banned first editions of The Book claimed a deluge of Draconian space debris would one day level Jerusalem during a long-running landgrab dispute.
Expect to see the shower around 21.00GMT next Saturday.
The last time the Earth ploughed through this onslaught of Draco meteors occurred between 1933 and 1946, ending with the destruction of 99% of the Nazis.
