As the conflict between Israel and Gaza escalates, Islamic terrorists are finding it more difficult to fire rockets towards Jerusalem, and the reason why is sure to give you chills.
Since Israel’s Iron Dome only works 90 percent of the time, Israeli citizens have been desperately praying for a miracle – and they may have had their prayers answered. Headlines in Israel claim the Jews are being protected from Hamas missiles by nothing less than the hand of God himself, but the claims actually stemmed from Hamas terrorists after an invisible force has stifled them from carrying out their attacks. The Jewish Telegraph opened with a quote from David Ben Gurion, Israel’s first Prime Minister, saying, “In Israel, in order to be a realist, you must believe in miracles.
While every Jew might not believe in miracles, Muslim terrorists are starting to sing a different tune:
‘[T]he Talmud Yerushalmi tells us that in no way are we to depend on miracles. It argues that we must not desist from our obligations and must not wait for miraculous intervention from the Supernatural. How perfectly relevant are both of these views today. We witness hourly miracles.’ As one of the terrorists from Gaza was reported to say when asked why they couldn’t aim their rockets more effectively: ‘We do aim them, but their God changes their path in mid-air.’ Amen! And when our God is not busy doing that, He is ensuring that the high-tech brain power of our ‘start-up nation’ is working overtime to produce yet another Iron Dome battery to help protect our cities and us.
It’s incredible to see such devout militants of Islam openly admit they are at war with another religion’s god. In Islam, this may be considered an admission of a superior religion, which can be equated with apostasy under some theological clerics. In short, professing the existence of a god other than the god of Islam is forbidden and carries severe punishments under Sharia law. Israel, however, is not shaken by the appearance of such miracles. Earlier this month, Israeli paper Arutz Sheva details the importance of miracles to the Jewish people:
The Jewish nation’s existence for six millennia is a miracle. There is no single Jewish life without a miracle. Miracle is an essential part of our belief; it is a gem of Jewish folklore. It is a source of our hope in the dark, and it is a gift of our dreams. And we know why – because these miracles are true.
Are these actual miracles or simply convenient coincidences? Either way, Hamas militants are becoming discouraged, which gives Israeli citizens a moment’s peace.
