What miracles? In less than a week, Israel retaliated against an Iranian missile attack from Syria with a massive strike the broke the back (in the meanwhile) of the Iranian military infrastructure within Syria as well as Syria's air defenses, brought to you by Russia and Vladimir Putin. There was not a single Israeli casualty, thanks once more, Hashem!
Thank You, Hashem, for giving PM Bibi Netanyahu the backbone to go to Moscow and tell Putin to stay out of the way of the Israeli AirForce operating in Syria.
Nasralla said today that Iran fired double the missiles that Israel reported, and heavy ones at that, and that they reached Tzfat and Tiberias. I believe him. Thank You, Hashem, for intercepting them.
Today, the USA opened its new embassy in Jerusalem. Thank You, Hashem for giving such courage to President Trump. Despite the crazy Arab rioting in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, once again, no Israelis were hurt. Thank You, Hashem!
Today was bloody Monday on the Gaza border. Tens of thousands of frenzied Gazans with Hamas hiding behind them tried to demolish the border fence and infiltrate Israel (photo, above). The IDF had no choice but to protect our border and our people and repel them. As far as we know, 55 Gazans were killed today and thousands wounded. Thank You, Hashem, for no Israeli civilian or military casualties. Tomorrow, when the Arabs lament their "Nakba" day when the State of Israel was founded, demonstrations are expected to be worse.
What does all this have to do with Shavuot at the end this week? We received the Torah by virtue of national unity. We'll weather the current challenges on all of our borders by virtue of national unity. Hashem is showing us that it works. When the Jewish People stand as one nation with one heart, we not only merit Torah, but Hashem fights our battles. Each of us can help the war effort and the effort to spread emuna and bring Moshiach simply by respecting the dignity of his fellow Jew. Don't say a bad word about anyone; look for the common denominator and not for the differences. We must be one nation with one heart, period!
Thank You, Hashem, that no one in Israel was hurt today.
We just received a hot-off-the-presses vid from Israel's Foreign Ministry. This will tell you about what the chaos less than a half hour's drive from my home is all about:
