I think there is another Israeli quake thread here but I cant find it
These shakings often occur during peace talks with Palestinians - who dont want peace.
God is warning Israel. Israel ignores GOD. USA is their god.

Earthquakes Rattle Israel's Confidence
Lake Kinneret Starts to Drop
May 2013 The Kinneret begins its summer fall as rain stops.
The surface of the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) has begun to fall. The lake hit what is expected to be its high for the year last week, at 209 meters and 86 centimeters below sea level.
The waters will now drop through the summer, until the beginning of the next rainy season.
Since last Tuesday the surface of the lake has dropped by one centimeter. It remains three meters and 13 centimeters above the “red line” below which it may be dangerous to continue drawing water.
The Kinneret is Israel’s largest single source of fresh water.
The lake rose quickly for the first half of the winter thanks to bountiful rain, but stopped rising earlier than usual as rain became unusually scarce in February and March.
Minor 3.3 earthquakes strike near Eilat
Oct 24, 2013 After series of northern temblors, two 3.3-magnitude tremors hit, but are barely felt, near southern Israel’s Red Sea tourism city.
minor earthquake hit the Eilat port area Wednesday afternoon, causing no damage or casualties.
Tremors were felt in the Egyptian border city of Taba, but weren’t felt as strongly in the neighboring Israeli city.
The earthquake, measuring 3.3 on the Richter scale, was preceded by another similar-sized quake in the Red Sea, according to Israel Radio.
The quakes were the first to be felt in the south of Israel, following a series of five minor quakes in six days — the last of them on Tuesday — felt in the north.

Tremors from Mediterranean 5.8 earthquake felt in Israel
Dec 28, 2013 Mild seismic waves reach northern Israel from 5.8 magnitude quake with epicenter off the coast of Western Turkey.
Tremors from a mild earthquake in the eastern Mediterranean were allegedly felt on Israel's northern shores on early Saturday evening at 5:21 p.m.
The earthquake, according to the United States Geological Survey's Earthquake Hazards Program, scored a 5.8 magnitude on the Richter Scale, with its epicenter falling about 80 kilometers south-southwest of Avsallar, Turkey, and 204 kilometers west-northwest of Nicosia, Cyprus.

Light earthquake felt in Israel
A light earthquake measuring about 4.0 on the Richter Scale was felt in areas across Israel on Saturday morning.
An earthquake was felt on Saturday morning in southern and central Israel at around 10:30 am, a 4.1 magnitude on the Richter scale.
The earthquake's epicenter was in Jordan, near the border with Israel, some 35 kilometers south-east of Mitzpe Ramon.
The earthquake lasted for several seconds.
5.2 earthquake S of Eilat Israel
June 27, 2015 - Rare 5.2 earthquake 39 miles SSW of Eilat, Israel, SE of EGYPT. It was logged in Eilat. The earthquake felt in Tel Aviv, Nazareth, and Jerusalem Israel at 6:34 PM, strong shaking reported in Cairo. The quake was felt in Aqaba, Jordan.
The USGS said it occurred on the East African Rift.
There have only been 3 earthquakes here since 1900.
Residents of Kibbutz Lotan near Eilat said its cows began to move restlessly and mooing several minutes before the earthquake.
Michael Janitch said Earthquake struck Egypt / Israel Dead Sea Fault system near the Jordan / Israel border.
The actual location of the earthquake falls in the Gulf of Aqaba, in the South Sinai Negev Deserts.
Worthy to note the very large volcanic fields to the Southeast, and also (unmarked volcanic buttes) across the Gulf of Aqaba to the West , which are interlaced with the mountain range. There is not much earthquake activity in this region normally, thus to see a 5.2 strike this area in particular, leads to a supposition on my part that this may be related to the large volcanic complex to the South, and runs along the fault line seen in the Gulf of Aqaba, North through Israel / Jordan.

4.3 earth tremor in Israel
July 30, 2015 - Israel - small earthquake of 4.4 magnitude in parts of southern Israel Thursday, epicenter in the Dead Sea area. The last earthquake in Israel was June 27 when a 5.2 magnitude quake was felt throughout Israel. The epicenter was in Sinai.
Recent Dead Sea Earthquake Ushering In End of Days Prophecy
August 2, 2015 - Thursday morning, at 5:39 local time, a 4.4 magnitude earthquake occurred in the Dead Sea region of Israel, an area that is the deepest depression on the face of the planet. Though there were no reports of injury or damage in Israel or neighboring Jordan, it is certainly worth considering the meaning of the event, especially in light of other recent earthquakes that have hit Israel and the catastrophic earthquake that hit a struck Nepal a few months ago.
Biblical scholars explain that the name of God, “Elohim”, refers to the aspect revealed through nature and linked to judgment. For early man, and even today, every natural phenomenon can be an awe inspiring experience, an occasionally fearsome reminder of our mortality. An earthquake is, quite literally, a moving experience.
Scientists have noted that the Dead Sea Rift has affected human civilization through time as well as the flora and fauna of the region, causing migrations and creating water sources. However, it should be noted that the location of Thursday’s earthquake is the precise region of Jericho, known for its city walls that came tumbling down, and also the area of Sodom and Gomorra. A biblical perspective certainly seems in order when considering occurrences of geological proportions.
The recent quake was a result of tensions in the Dead Sea Fault which is part of the Syrian-African Rift, extending from Syria to Mozambique. Experts have predicted that a major earthquake could occur in the near future and local authorities have begun projects to bolster building against such an event. Tectonic tension is building and most geologists consider a major event to be inevitable.
An earthquake in 1837 in the area killed as many as 5,000 people. The last major earthquake to hit the center of Israel was a 6.2 magnitude quake in 1927, killing over 500 people and damaging sites, like the Church of the Holy Sepulcher and al-Aqsa Mosque. On March 22, 2012, a 3.7 earthquake hit the exact region as well.
Prophecies connected to earthquakes abound, seeming to emphasize their biblical significance, especially in regards to End of Days prophecy:
“Then the LORD will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights on a day of battle. On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south…You will flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the LORD my God will come, and all the holy ones with him.” (Zechariah 14:3-5)
“The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because he was angry.” (Psalms 18:7)
“This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign LORD. In my zeal and fiery wrath I declare that at that time there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. The fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground.” (Ezekiel 38:18-20)
“I looked at the earth, and it was formless and empty; and at the heavens, and their light was gone. I looked at the mountains, and they were quaking; all the hills were swaying. I looked, and there were no people; every bird in the sky had flown away…” Jeremiah 4:23-28
“They will flee to caverns in the rocks and to the overhanging crags from the fearful presence of the LORD and the splendor of his majesty, when he rises to shake the earth.” (Isaiah 2:21)
While Thursday’s earthquake caused no damage in Israel, the geological occurrence has served as a wakeup call for many. Dr. Shmuel Marco, who has spent many years studying the timeline of earthquakes in the region, told the Jerusalem Post that geological experts should take a hint from the Bible when predicting the next “big one.”
Marco noted that prophets became active a certain number of years after major earthquakes. Major earthquakes were recorded in the Jordan Valley in the years 31 BCE, 363 CE, 749 CE and 1033 CE. “So roughly,” says Marco, “we are talking about an interval of every 400 years. If we follow the patterns of nature, a major quake should be expected any time because almost a whole millennium has passed since the last strong earthquake.”

5.0-magnitude earthquake shakes southern Israel
Epicenter in the Red Sea southwest of Eilat. An earthquake rumbled in the Red Sea, shaking buildings in the Sinai peninsula and as far north as Israel’s southern tip. The effects were felt as far as Jerusalem.
I find it interesting media other than USGS dont reference Israel in reporting quakes.
