The choice of the "firebird" (Russian version of the phoenix) for the Olympic torch of the Sochi games, along with the fire and ice (red and blue) symbols of alchemy, is quite telling, as with the London 2012 closing ceremonies, which concluded with a simulated self-immolation of a 70-foot wide phoenix, while the band Take That sang "Rule the World"

Plans by the Zionists for nuclear worldwide terror on Xmas/Pascha with phoenix theme is also alluded to in Harry Potter, whose magic wand was made from holly wood and the tail feather of a phoenix.
