“But I will harden Pharaoh’s heart that I may multiply My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt. When Pharaoh does not listen to you, then I will lay My hand on Egypt and bring out My hosts, My people the sons of Israel, from the land of Egypt by great judgments.” (Exodus 7:3-4)
In the Zohar, a classic Jewish text, it is written that in the last days before the Messiah, all of the historic enemies of Israel will be reincarnated and brought back in the last generation before the redemption to battle Israel again. In this final battle at the end of days, they will all be thoroughly destroyed.
Despite this being an esoteric reference in an ancient Jewish text, it is known that Saddam Hussein, the tyrannical former leader of Iraq, considered himself to be the reincarnation of Nebuchadnezzar, the Chaldean king credited with destroying the first Jewish Temple. When Hussein commissioned a reconstruction project of the ancient city of Babylon, he had the inscription “To King Nebuchadnezzar in the reign of Saddam Hussein” inscribed on bricks inserted into the walls.
Hussein was mimicking the original Nebuchadnezzar, who was said to have inscribed his name on the bricks when he built cities in his time. Hussein was hanged on the ninth day of the Hebrew month of Tevet. The tenth of Tevet is a fast day commemorating the day Nebuchadnezzar began the siege on Jerusalem that led to the destruction of the Jewish Temple.
