She'ol (hell) : Korea

Just before his passing on 7 Shevat 5755 (8 January 1995), the tzadik, renowned mekubal and miracle-worker, Rav Levi Saadya Nachmani, made this public speech, which has now been picked up by several Jewish sites. Known for his accurate predictions, Rav Nachmani had spoken of N. Korea endangering the residents in Eretz Yisroel, a development that was unimaginable at the time. (Note: Seoul is actually in South Korea)
A translation of Rav Nachmani's speech:

You think there will be peace? You think there will be quiet one day? Complete fools! About this it says in Parshas Ha'azinu, "A nation who is foolish and not wise, who is stubborn and crooked. Shall you treat Hashem thus? He is your father who acquired you." (Deut. 32:5-6)

You know what will be? Rachmana litzlan.

Korea? You know who is Korea? Seoul will come here. Not Syria, not Iran, not Iraq and not Qaddafi. Korea will come here!! Rachmana litzlan, Hashem should save us. Whoever pays attention to what is happening in Korea now -- understands it's a message for us! The atom! It will be very difficult if we don't do tshuva. Understand and realize this! It will be worse than a Holocaust!!!!

"For a fire has been kindled by My anger, and it shall burn until the lowest She'ol (netherworld)." (Deut. 32:22)

You know what She'ol is? It is the capital city of Korea. Seoul. It will reach here.

"It will devour the earth and its harvests, and set aflame the foundations of the mountains." (Deut. 32:22)

"I will heap calamities upon them and spend my arrows against them." (Deut. 32:23)

"What does it mean?

We abandoned Hakodesh Baruch Hu, we thought we could take care of ourselves. We had a prime minister who presides and does what he wants, as if Hakodesh Baruch Hu (chas v'sholom) doesn't exist, as if Eretz Yisroel is ours and we can do what we want. As if the people belongs to us.

The Torah says, "For Hashem's portion is his people." (Deut. 32:9) You do not belong to yourself, you are His. "For with a strong hand I shall rule you."

We have no conflict with the Arabs! We have a conflict with the G-d of Israel! If we don't listen to Him, we will only have more troubles and more troubles, and the situation will only get worse.

(The Rav appears at around 2:09 in the video)
