1. According to NPR, there is no causal connection between the 100,000 fish washed up over the weekend in Ozark, Arkansas, and the 5,000 birds that fell from just before New Years' Eve, solely within a 1-square-mile area. "There's no evidence connecting the two incidents. Beebe is about 40 miles northeast of Little Rock. Ozark is about 125 miles away from Beebe, to the west near the Oklahoma border."
2. In the same 24-hour period of the Beebe Arkansas incident, thousands of birds fell from the sky in Bio Bio, Chile. Immediately after the Bio Bio incident, Chile was hit by a 7.1 magnitude earthquake, whose epicenter was very close to the radius of the fallen birds.
3. Over the weekend, Chilean president Sebastian Piñera was in Brazil, where he with Mahmud Abbas, President of the Palestinian National Authority. In early December, Abbas sent a letter requesting Chile to recognize the Palestinian state and Piñera has suggested that recognition by Chile may come soon.

5. The falling birds incidents happened in two towns which, despite being on two different continents, have highly similar names: Beebe and Bio Bio. Both of these names sound like Bibi, the current Prime Minister of Israel, who is currently ruminating over whether to halt expansion of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.
May all of creation merit to rejoice in the coming of Mashiach Tzidkeinu!
