Israel Miracle? Gaza Strip Hamas Complain, ‘Their God Changes The Paths Of Our Rockets In Mid-Air’

23 July 2014, 08:51

Headlines in Israel claim miracles are protecting the Jews during the Gaza Strip ground war, with one headline proclaiming that Hamas terrorists are complaining about God changing the direction of rockets in mid-air.

In a related report by The InquisitrHamas leader are worth millions of dollars and critics claim they have been skimming money from donations. The issue of donations also came up in regards to the support provided to the Gaza Strip by Israel since the Hamas tunnels were built with cement provided by the government.

As the Gaza ground war has heated up, there has also been a surge of anti-Israel demonstrations which have turned into chaos where looting and car burning has taken place. The war in Gaza has caused some to question whether Israel has the right to defend itselfand its citizens, with Hamas clearly answering “no” to that question.

United States Secretary of State John Kerry publicly supported “Israel’s right to defend itself against rockets that are continuing to come in” but when Kerry was caught talking on an open mic he was heard complaining, “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation — hell of a pinpoint operation. We’ve got to get over there. We ought to go tonight. I think it’s crazy to be sitting around.”

If you go by the headlines of local newspapers in Israel, the Jews under attack by Hamas rockets have another hidden defense: God himself. The Jewish Telegraph opens with a quote from David Ben Gurion, who once said, “In Israel, in order to be a realist, you must believe in miracles.” The article claims that even the Hamas have become frustrated with Israel’s miracles:

“[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.”

The theme of miracles protecting Israel during the Gaza war is not limited to this newspaper. Another news source called Arutz Sheva reported earlier in the month 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.”

As evidence for these miracles, the writers related the story of how a Jewish woman gave birth to triplet boys in the time frame when the three Israeli boys were killed near the beginning of this Gaza conflict.

What do you think about the reports of miracles in Israel and the claim that God is changing the path of Hamas rockets?
