Israel Didn’t Expect This Miracle Just Seconds Before A Hamas Rocket Almost Killed Hundreds

F. Peter Brown — August 5, 2014

An Israeli commander claimed that hundreds of Israeli lives were saved recently when “the hand of God” stopped a Hamas rocket.

The Israeli commander described the attack on a Hebrew-language website:
A missile was fired from Gaza. Iron Dome precisely calculated [its trajectory]. We know where these missiles are going to land down to a radius of 200 meters. This particular missile was going to hit either the Azrieli Towers, the Kirya (Israel’s equivalent of the Pentagon) or [a central Tel Aviv railway station]. Hundreds could have died.

We fired the first [interceptor]. It missed. Second [interceptor]. It missed. This is very rare. I was in shock. At this point we had just four seconds until the missile lands. We had already notified emergency services to converge on the target location and had warned of a mass-casualty incident.

Suddenly, Iron Dome (which calculates wind speeds, among other things) shows a major wind coming from the east, a strong wind that … sends the missile into the sea. We were all stunned. I stood up and shouted, ‘There is a God!’

One Hamas member was asked why they couldn’t aim their rockets better and actually hit an Israeli target. He responded: “We do aim them, but their God changes their path in mid-air.”

The first prime minister of Israel, David Ben Gurion, said this once: “In Israel, in order to be a realist, you must believe in miracles.”

There are in fact hundreds of stories of the 1967 and 1973 wars Israel engaged that told of God’s intervention.

One news source called Arutz Sheva said it well:

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.

What do you think? Were hundreds of Israelis saved from the Hamas rocket by the hand of God?

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

God is an odd sort and with a very bad sense of humor.

When the British decided to burn down Washington DC (you really should have let us, it would have saved you a ton of hassle) the first ever tornado recorded there popped up and put out the fires.

Miracles happen all the damned time. My brains are still inside my skull because I bent over to pick up a china head out of the dirt at exactly the right second to dodge a bullet.
