Somebody approached me on the street earlier today and asked, "If Hashem does everything for the best, then why did so many missiles penetrate the Iron Dome's defense system in Ashdod, like the one that landed in the kindergarten on Tuesday?"
I complimented the man for his superb question. I answered him, giving him three reasons:
1. Hashem wants us all to know that He guards over us and not the Iron Dome missile-defense system.
2. Hashem wants us to put all of our faith and trust in Him, and not in weapons, high-tech or anything else.
3. Hashem wants us to see His miracles, like in the case of the gas station, so that we'll all wake up and return to Him.
As such, it is Hashem who is behind the Iron Dome's success and its failures. It's also Hashem behind all of our successes and failures. There is no one but Hashem - ein od milvado!
