The story below was in an Israeli newspaper dated July 18, 2014. At the end of this article, there is a link for the entire episode.
A Rabbi is speaking …“One of my students whom I haven’t heard from in many years contacted me today to ask where I teach Torah. I was surprised by his question, since I know for sure that he is not observing Torah and mitzvoth [commandments]. So, I asked him why he wanted to know, and this was his response:”
“‘I observed the hand of G-d today with my own eyes. Now I know FOR SURE that there is a G-d!! No one told it to me…I didn’t hear it from someone else…I saw this happen with my own eyes.
“‘I am an integral part of the iron dome operation. What we do here is an exact science and I cannot give many details of what we do. The other day we knew that a missile was headed directly for Tel Aviv…aimed at one of the three big Azrieli towers. We sent up one missile to intercept it, and we missed. We sent a second one, and we missed. We sent a third one to intercept…and we missed.
“‘Something even remotely like this has only happened one other time ever that I am aware of. We are very exact and very good at what we do. We do not miss. So to miss three times is not possible.
“‘By this time, disaster was eminent. Their missile was only seconds from detonation. We began the procedure of sending off one final missile to try and intercept it just before it came down, but we knew that casualties would still be imminent.
“‘Now, you must understand, our calculations based on physics and aerodynamics and weather (wind, atmosphere, humidity) are complete…there is NOTHING we don’t take into account. This is how [the Iron Dome] is able to work so precisely.
“‘But all of a sudden, as we were scrambling to do anything and everything we could to save Tel Aviv, all of a sudden OUT OF NOWHERE came up a huge wind… one that was not on the radar…one that DID NOT EXIST before…and blew the missile from over Tel Aviv all the way into the sea and dropped it off exactly safely into the water where no one was injured!!!
“‘You must understand…there was NO WIND…and then there was A HUGE WIND. This is not a couple of inches of a “move” that any gentle breeze could influence…this is MILES. It was nothing other than the hand of G-d!! I saw it with my very own eyes!!! The wind was not there before and it was not there after. It didn’t come from somewhere, it came from NOWHERE.
“‘And after it moved the missile to the sea, the wind disappeared! So, after seeing this, I can no longer deny the existence of G-d. I took upon myself to keep Shabbat. Yesterday was my first Shabbat to keep and it was the best Shabbat of my life.’”
So that’s the story. Such a hit would have been catastrophic beyond imagination for the state of Israel.
PRAISE GOD FOR HE IS, ALWAYS, IN CONTROL!
