These are the words - Rashi: Because these are words of reproof and [because] he (Moses) intended to recount here all the places where they angered the Almighty, he therefore said these words in an obscure manner and only mentioned them in hints in order to show the importance of the honor of Israel.
He begins each one of the five books of the Torah with a comment that refers in one way or another to the specialness of Israel.

Here the desert of Paran means the region of Paran, which would be either at or near Mecca.

 Parashat Korach - Rabbi Pinchas Frankel
These characteristics, as Pirke Avot states in the name of Rabbi Elazar HaKappar, "Jealousy, excessive desire in general, and desire for honor, in particular, remove a person from the world," (Avot, 4:28) as Korach himself literally was so removed.
But when they came to the Desert of Paran, they were burnt in the fire at Taverah (BaMidbar 11:1-3; because they assumed the attitude, for no apparent reason, of complainers), and many died at Kivrot HaTaavah, (when they sinned by complaining about their vegetarian diet - BaMidbar 11:4-34)."
I wish to focus on the question of why this revolt happened specifically "here and now," in the Desert of Paran, after the sin of the "Meraglim," the "Spies," who misreported concerning Eretz Yisrael with disastrous consequences, somewhat comparably to the way the media, in general, portrays Israel today.

 The Sons of Jacob at War with the Sons of Esau
At last, however, in the battle that took place in the desert of Paran, the sons of Esau gained a decisive victory.
In the encounters that ensued between the hostile forces, the sons of Esau were defeated again and again, partly on account of treachery in their own ranks, for their men sometimes deserted to the enemy while the combat was on.
The sons of Seir, on their part, also sought allies, and they secured the help of the children of the East, and of the Midianites, who put warriors at their disposal.
