It wasn’t even close to an encounter.

Thousands of Israelis crowded Tel Aviv beaches early Monday, watching for extraterrestrials whose arrival had been predicted by self-proclaimed Israeli psychic Helinor Harar.

As the theme music from the TV show “The X-Files” resounded from loudspeakers, she shouted, “Israel will be the center for UFO landings.”

Harar, who predicted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s upset election victory, later told Israel TV she had a new date for a landing - Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day.

And she ventured another prediction: “Until they fly over Hebron, there will be no agreement.”
