Tadmor – Palmyra
And Solomon built Tadmor in the wilderness,
and all the store cities, which he built in Hamath.
2 Chronicles 8:4
Palmyra is an ancient city of central Syria, located in an oasis 130 miles (210 km) NE of Damascus. Once dubbed the “Bride of the Desert,” Palmyra was a vital stop for caravans crossing the Syrian desert. Palmyra was mentioned in the Old Testament as being fortified by Solomon and it flourished in Roman times. The Greek name for the city, Palmyra is a translation of its original Aramaic name, Tadmor, which means ‘palm tree’. Tadmor is mentioned in the Bible (2 Chronicles 8:4) as a desert city that was fortified by King Solomon.
The Monumental Arch, also called the Arch of Triumph (Arabic: قوس النصر) or the Arch of Septimius Severus, was a Roman ornamental archway in Palmyra, Syria. It was built in the 3rd century during the reign of emperor Septimius Severus. The Arch linked the main street of the Colonnade and the Temple of Bel.
Passing through, moving forward
The 3D reconstruction of the Palmyra Arch of Triumph was installed in Piazza San Graziano in Arona from April 29 until September 30, this date was extended from July 30th, having previously been exhibited in London, New York, Dubai and Florence.
This event was called “Passing through, moving forward” for a reason. When the arch was in Florence, for the first time they allowed people actually walk under the Arch to pass through it.
According to the organisers “Passing through, moving forward” sent out a positive message of continuity and peace and was an important example of how modern technology can be of service to culture in bringing back to life pieces of history which would otherwise be gone forever, as a consequence of tragic events or natural calamities. The Arch is a global symbol of the triumph of cooperation in the field of conflict, optimism, and man’s intelligence on the senseless destruction.
During a Sky News interview Roger Michel (executive director of IDA) said the arch “was built to sort of act like as an antenna”. Seriously ….. many have thought that this Arch that lead to the Temple of Bel, Ba’ll has been a receptor for demonic forces since it’s tour started in 2016.

LOOKING AT SOME NUMBERS …..
According to a fabulous blog hiddeninthecrag (April 29th) the day the Arch was revealed in Arona, 3 1/2 hours away in Switzerland, CERN had both beams circulating.
Coincidentally 14 years ago today (4/30) the World Wide Web went on a royalty free basis.
Who invented the World Wide Web ? CERN. It must be one of those coincidences again and you wonder why I mentioned above why Roger Michel says the Arch works as an antenna!
Temple of Bel
Keep this in mind when April 20, 2016 rolled around. It was the 111th day of the year in 2016 because it was a leap year. Also, remember, the Christians consider ‘Baal’ to be Satan. This is when the arch was unveiled in London’s Trafalgar Square.
From August 31, 2015 to April 20, 2016 = 233-days, the number that follows 144 in the Fibonacci Sequence. Remember, it was August 9, 2015, two weeks earlier, that the Hindu Goddess Kali was shown on the Empire State Building.
The Palmyra Arch is now named The Peace Bow, but during the G7 Summit it was dubbed The Peace Arch.
What’s also interesting which I haven’t covered is that Temple of Bel, the deity Ba’al who was worshiped at Palmyra in triad with the lunar god (Aglibol) and the sun god (Yarhibol) also sits on a leyline that connects to London, Stonehenge, New York and Teotihuacan and I bet you that Arona and Florence are also sat on that very leyline.

Digital Archaeology confirmed that the “Arca Di Pace” – Peace Bow will return to Palmyra.
