The Swiss are holding their “Conference on Humanitarian Law in Palestinian Authority Assigned Territories” as if Israeli actions are the worst acts and the Israeli forces are thugs with criminal intent using force and slaughtering Arabs in lands belonging to them for autonomous rule being denied their ancient homelands. The truth is well known to anybody who reads our posts here at BTC. The San Remo Conference deeded these lands the Swiss are questioning for the formation of the Jewish State of Israel and they cannot be used by any other entity unless the Zionists surrender their autonomy over the lands from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, just to use phraseology familiar to the misguided Swiss. Perhaps they should take a few moments away from their frenetic haste and read the Balfour Declaration, the San Remo Conference conclusions, the United States Congress affirmation of their approval as an observing nations of San Remo and Article 80 of the United Nations Charter and maybe they will realize that the Jews were deeded all of the lands including those where Jordan sits today thanks to the generosity of the World Zionist Congress which willingly surrendered the lands east of the Jordan River for a sacred promise that the remaining lands east of the Jordan River would remain dedicated and reserved for the Jewish state and was inviolate. Apparently the world sees no problem demanding that the Jews once again surrender lands promised them to forge yet another Arab state and this one promises to be a failed state dedicated to a single purpose, to destroy and supplant the Jewish state. The European leaders clamoring for a state for the poor and downtrodden Palestinians whose homeland that was a piece of imagination conceived in KGB Moscow Headquarters with Yasser Arafat chosen as their operative to lead the struggle with Mahmoud Abbas as the terror organizer, financier and second in command all with the single purpose of supplanting Israel and slaughtering the Jews within.

 

Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas are apparatchiks (аппара́тчик if one prefers the original Soviet Russian spelling) and dedicated pawns of the initial Soviet designs to eradicate the Jewish state of Israel as part of their Cold War against the imperial powers of the United States and its allies. When the Soviet Union fell the Arab liberation movement had reached heights never imagined by the Soviets and had become self-sustaining and actually very profitable as Yasser Arafat had made hundreds of millions of dollars which he had stashed away in a Swiss bank account and also bought some prime properties where his wife would live luxuriously. Mahmoud Abbas and his sons had fared quite well all becoming multi-millionaires and then there is the competing terror group Hamas whose leader Khaled Mashaal has reportedly become a billionaire with Ismail Haniyeh merely a multi-millionaire. Who says terrorism doesn’t pay, if you are fighting to destroy Israel the world apparently rewards one rather well. One needs look no further than the “The Cairo International Conference on Palestine Reconstructing Gaza” where it was reported that over five-billion dollars were pledged for reconstruction with the stated provision that Hamas not be permitted access to monies or supplies, particularly building supplies which were needed to rebuild their infiltration tunnel system purposed for terror raids to slaughter Jewish Israelis living in Sderot and numerous kibbutzim located near the Gaza Strip. The only problem was that there was no enforcement placed on the supplies beyond promises from Abbas who has little if any power over Gaza. Needless to point out, Hamas is moving ahead full bore rebuilding their tunnels under the border and into Israel while those rebuilding the residences and other areas destroyed or damaged have already gone through every dollar of the monies donated and are demanding another round where at least twice the amount be raised as they have been unable to apply all the material for its intended use building homes for the people. This was exactly the result the donors claimed they would guard against and then took the word of a Holocaust denying criminal named Mahmoud Abbas, the financier and purchasing agent for the Black September raid on the Munich Olympics where the Israeli Olympic Team was slaughtered in cold blood as the entire world witnessed the events on the twenty-four hour news channels. The world leaders watched and permitted the mishandling of the situation leading to the slaughter of the remaining Israelis at the airport where the attempt to free the hostages went so very poorly resulting in their deaths and not even approaching successfully freeing them and guarding their lives. Assistance from Israel was refused and they were told their plane would not receive clearance to land should they attempt to take over the rescue despite the Israelis having decades of experience in such rescue missions and the Germans facing their first mission of this sort. No body mourned and the games continued unabated as if nothing untoward or tragic had occurred, just a simple terror attack against the Israeli team while the rest went about their competitions. One wonders what the train of events might have been had the terrorists been Irish revolutionaries and the hostages been the British team, would the games had continued or come to a screeching halt and be terminated if the British team were slaughtered. I know that would be different as the British contingent was significant and there were but a little over a dozen Israelis murdered, insignificant when compared to the European national team components, after all, the Israeli team could hardly be considered an actual component, they were not even entering most of the events. Thus was probably the thinking as after all, when has Europe ever wept or shown concern for Jewish lives?

 

Meanwhile, the Swiss conference attempting to prove the perfidy and criminal intents of the Israeli treatment and actions concerning the Arabs who refer to themselves as Palestinians simply to grant themselves a reference which presumably will supercede the Jewish claims to the lands, as they ignore the latest milestones in the Syrian machine of misery and death which had claimed over two-hundred-thousand civilian lives and injured or maimed over a million civilian victims. This civil war which has been anything but civil has raged unabated and unresolved for over three years and has gutted the nation of Syria which may never recover from the widespread destructions which have been a direct result of the fighting. Sure, President Obama laid down an adjustable red line which appeared to jump back whenever it had been broken by Bashir al-Assad such that it took Russian President Putin to intercede and marginally enforce the ever shifting Obama red line to release the American President further embarrassment. But this slaughter is of no interest; why?

 

The drone campaign used by the United States military in conjunction with the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) targeting presumable terrorist leaders and others in the leadership of al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and in ISIS wherever they can be located and there is presumably solid evidence of their presence in a location and there will be minimal collateral damage, a term for unfortunate victims of the bomb, missile or other ordinance which will be utilized to liquidate their intended targets has had unintended consequences. The stated goal can be presented with such noble words that it sounds like the perfect policy. The results are messaged such that the civilian casualties are minimized and made to appear acceptable. The real results are frightening as they show that these directed precision munitions are more often than not targeting locations well after the target has left or on faulty intelligence information. The answer you hear is that such are the misfortunes of war; there will be some miniscule amount of unintended consequences but that the majority of those killed in these strikes are really terrible terror masters. Well, not so much. It has been revealed that the numbers of civilian deaths from these targeted strikes using very refined and accurate munitions have, more often than not, missed their intended target and have resulted in over ninety-five percent civilian casualties. Perhaps Senator Feinstein would like to investigate this usage of American military might instead of the three water-boarded individuals almost immediately after the carnage on September 11, 2001 and the couple of dozen other terrorists who resisted normal methods and were subjected to other manner of enhanced interrogations methods (some of which more resemble the abuse college young men are subjected to during pledge week at various fraternities when I was attending college) in efforts to save lives of both civilians as well as American and allied service men and women.

 

Then there are the abductions by Boko Haram in and around Nigeria which the world has dedicated token forces to assist in the capture or elimination of these terrorists and the liberation of their victims. There is the terrible and ongoing violence in Yemen which has previously served as a refueling port for United States warships. There is tribal violence in the nascent state of South Sudan which has been further fueled by terrorist forces authorized by the Sudan from which the South Sudan has ceded and been recognized as a new nation. Perhaps those European nations and the United States who so gloriously and with great fanfare recognized the new nation might assist in getting the nation on its feet and establish order, but there is no interest as there are no favorite people to save or blame as there are in the Arab-Israeli conflict. There are the several attacks perpetrated by Russian armed and supported rebels in the Ukraine, in Georgia, and starting in Latvia, Estonia and perhaps Lithuania and other former nations which were part of the Soviet Empire with both Georgia and the Ukraine having had large portions of their countries absorbed by Russian troops and gifted to those more inclined to be subservient to Putin and Russian interests and less likely to view the Western world favorably.

 

There has been one force in the world fighting the good fight and I never thought I would be announcing my support for Saudi Arabia, but they are the modern day heroes in fighting the good fight. The Saudi Arabian rulers have ignored their own immediate interest and profits by flooding the world with crude oil at lower than average price per barrels. This has had an astoundingly successful set of results. This tactic by the Saudi royals is aimed at the United States fracking and sideways drilling oil shale industry which has boosted American crude oil production such as to place an additional output equal to that of Kuwait. The Saudis would love to put those interests out of business. Further, Iranian crude oil is not as high grade sweet crude like Saudi oil and thus they require a greater price to profit from their oil wells. The price that Iranian crude must sell for to maintain a profit has been surmised to be between eighty-five dollars per barrel to over one-hundred dollars per barrel, not the paltry near or under seventy dollars a barrel oil is currently selling at. Another victim of the low price per barrel is Russia who the Saudi may not have directly targeted but whom they would not be upset at hurting their interests as Russia has chosen to support Iran, the greatest menace and threat to Saudi Arabia and their leadership. Russia also requires a higher price for their oil as most of their economy is balanced on their oil sales. We have noticed the panic in Russia as the Ruble, or should we say Rubble, has drastically faltered against other currencies on the world market and many have seen the collapse of the Russian economy in recent days. There are calls for Putin’s head to be placed on a pike at the entrance to Red Square, or at least his resignation. The Saudi insistence at the last OPEC meeting, which they took the unusual step of disallowing media presence or coverage and chose whom to include in the invite, and more importantly who not to allow, and they must have made a grand presentation for their hopes and plans or laid out a threat which none wished to contend against, but they agreed to keep the spigots open and let the price of oil drop and drop drastically into ranges not seen for quite some time. When all is done, I would not be surprised to find out that the Saudi Royals used their own vast wealth to promise to subsidize the other OPEC nations allied with Saudi Arabia in these actions in order to prevent unrest within their borders in order to sink their chosen targets. Thus far their actions have not deterred the American oil interest, especially the new finds in North Dakota, who have a secondary advantage of much lower shipping costs to the refineries, and time will tell if they have blunted Iran at all, but their effects on Russia are already quite evident for all to see. The people in the west in particular are the main beneficiaries of the Saudi oil war as their petroleum costs to keep their vehicles gassed up and ready to go have dropped precipitously and this means more cash for Christmas presents. Children of the west rejoice.

There are reports that the European Union has distributed a list to its twenty-eight member states detailing sanctions to be taken against Israel as punishment should the Israeli government refuse to bow before European demands regarding activities beyond the Green Line, the 1949 Armistice Lines, refusing to reengage in peace negotiations with the Palestinians, though there is no mention that such might be impossible as the Palestinian Authority has been refusing to negotiate until Israel surrenders to all of their demands granting them their state within the entirety of the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) with all of East Jerusalem as their capital and total control over the Temple Mount and Old City, or refuse any other demands made by the European Union in the name of as part of agreement with the Palestinians. Of course the list was to remain secret and concealed from the Israelis as per instructions given, according to Haaretz, from the drafters and designers of the sanctions regimen, the European External Action Service (EEAS), who distributed these instructions to the numerous European diplomats. But this economic assault on Israelis as punishment for Zionist activities, defined as inhabiting and claiming the ancient lands of the Jewish ancestors, or Israeli defiance to European directives and demands for their submission to Palestinian demands, attempting to strike at Israel economically is simply the latest of those assaults on Israel and Zionism using economic punishments much as was used against the Jewish people both in periods of European and Islamic history throughout the many states and under numerous rulers within both.

 

Another economic assault on Israel is better known as it has been very public and have made their demands well publicized is known as the Boycott, Divestment and Sanction Movement (BDS). The BDS movements is nothing but the modern-day interpretation to the medieval banishment against permitting Jews to own land which often forced Jews into the towns where they learned trades, dealt as money lenders and financiers, learned sciences and medicine or tended stores becoming the retailers of later ages. The BDS economic assaults on Israel have similarities to the barring of Jews entering many guilds, governments banning Jews from certain professions during the ages of the inquisitions and purifications across Europe or restrictions placed on Jews economically as Dhimmis living in Muslim ruled lands.

 

The history of economic and legal warfare against the Jewish communities during their existence within the Diaspora is well known, well documented and had numerous peculiarities making each episode and each age having their own identifiable peculiarities. There were often cases where Jews were restricted in where they were permitted to live, often in places referred to as the Jewish Ghettos while other times at one end of town separated by a short distance almost as if they were relegated to their own town separate from the non-Jewish peoples. One recent example of a generally held suspicion of Jewish perfidy which existed into the middle of the last century was that the Jewish People had some unfair advantage when it came to business acumen which gave them an unfair advantage over other business people. This suspicion was not actually valid as there were just as many Jewish businesses which failed and the percentage breakdown of Jewish successes and failures were just slightly over the statistical deviance. Still some back then pointed to that slight margin above statistical error as sufficiently significant that without some viable explanation there should be an investigation into why the Jews are more successful. I heard this argument made by some classmates (yes, I’m ancient) and could not help but laugh at which point I found myself challenged to explain what I found so amusing. I asked them if perhaps the obvious reason that Jews might be slightly more practiced and have a wellspring of knowledge within their community was due to the fact that while much of the Christian world was farming Jews were forbidden to own or work land and were forced into the towns where they ran were practitioners of skilled trades, or ran businesses such as money lenders (the predecessor to modern banks facilitating trade), taverns, provisionary, clothiers and other businesses which gave the Jews centuries of experience over those who held the wealth of land ownership or those who worked the farmlands or tended flocks.

 

Back during those earlier times some Jews amassed varying degrees of wealth with some by the twentieth century had become extremely wealthy. The Rothschild family which owned one of the oldest and largest banks in France had amassed sufficient wealth to cause conspiracy theorists to accuse them and other wealthy Jewish families of controlling governments and having unhealthy influences. There were theories during the Middle Ages that blamed the Jews for plagues or other mass illnesses, such as the flu or other viruses, which struck towns which resulted in some instances in pogroms or even the burning at the stake of a town’s Jews. One could interpolate that the same may be behind some of the hatreds and conspiracy theories concerning Israel as simply the ancient hatred and accusations made against the Jewish People have now been adapted, possibly subconsciously, and applied now to the Jewish state. Part of this theory can be proven when one realizes that one of the current demands made of Jews in Europe and was made against the majority of the Jews within the Islamic world from 1947 through the early 1960s where Jews were told with all the hatred and ferocity a society could muster to take themselves to Israel with the rest of the Jews as they were no longer welcome amongst the real citizens and accepted members of the society within whom these Jews resided. Now the exact same thing in reverse is part of the Arab and Islamic demands for the Jews to leave Israel and return the lands to their rightful Arab owners, similar to the demands for the Jews to leave many nations, regions, localities or other dominion which resulted in the Jews often moving from one place to another only to need to relocate once again within a few years or maybe longer time and time again. The Jews were then told to take themselves back to where they belonged, which then was to the Middle East to Jerusalem or anywhere between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, exactly where Israel is today. But there are other similarities.

 

When Israel first established her independence she had to fight a war against over a half dozen Arab nations’ armed forces, many militias and forces under the command of the Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini who spent almost all of World War II within Hitler’s Germany where he added his approval for the ‘Final Solution’ for European Jews and demanded Nazi assistance in dealing with the Jews of the Middle East and North Africa after they had conquered Europe and moved on to the Middle East and beyond, for which she received little assistance from Western Europe and the United States imposed an arms embargo and despite of which the tiny nascent state of Israel not only survived but gained some lands they had not initially held at the initial time of the intended genocidal invasion. After the initial survival of Israel she became a predominantly socialist, agrarian society which, despite hard work reclaiming their lands from the swamps, rocky terrain and desert which composed much of their new homelands. Early Israel was well received and accepted by most of the world and for the first time in almost two thousand years the Jews were free, in their own ancient homelands, had self-rule and were joining and had a belonging amongst the nations of the world and a member of the United Nations. Slowly the nation of Israel began to develop a more technically advanced society and economy. Upon the winning the release for Russian Jews to make Aliyah and immigrate to Israel the Israeli economy took on a whole new facet and the technology explosion erupted expanding the Israeli economy. Very soon after Israel became a much wealthier nation and also saw the turning away by many of the nations who not long ago were friends but now were siding with her enemies. Many of these nations had gone from their position which immediately after the June 1967 Six Day War had supported and fully expected that Israel would retain some, if not a fair amount, of the lands she had gained as a result of a defensive war started by Egypt and Syria and one day later they were joined by Jordan over Israeli warnings and pleadings for Jordan to remain peaceful, but soon after the October 1973 Yom Kippur War and the fuel embargo by OPEC, these nations started drifting to the Pro-Palestinian Arab position initially fearing further embargoes and eventually as representative of their hate for capitalism and wealth gained by Israel moving from a socialist society towards a capitalist free trade society. Israel returned all of the Sinai to Egypt upon making peace, a somewhat surprising generosity as many had thought Israel would retain the parts of the Sinai east of the central spire of mountains. The largely agreed belief was that Israel would retain the Golan Heights and all of Judea and Samaria (West Bank) as retaining these lands would provide Israel with the security of defendable borders, the exact wording from the United Nations resolution which had called on Israel to return lands, not all the lands, just lands, and retaining those regions which would provide for Israel to have defensible borders. Today and since soon after 2008 Israel has been pressured to return to within the Green Line. Israel has been treated with great amounts of animosity from much of Western Europe, much of the Islamic world, the nations which make up the Non-Aligned Nations (NAM), and now even the United States, or at least the administration under President Obama. The increased levels of animosity and hatred from around the world against Israel had been directly proportional to her increasing economic wealth, much like what the Jews faced in many of these same areas as they individually gained wealth.

 

The ironies and insanities displayed by the nations of the world when it comes to Israel, Zionism and the hatreds of both and the Jewish People is astoundingly absurd. Just a few weeks ago Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei called for the Jews in Israel to return to the nations from whence they had come. The Iranian leader implied that all Israeli Jews arrived from Europe and the United States. There is a gaping hole in this theory which the Ayatollah Khamenei is perfectly aware of, half of the Israeli population originated outside of Europe and North America and instead arrived from across the lands of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) including his own Iran. One must wonder whether or not the Ayatollah Khamenei would be willing to accept the return of the near one-hundred-thousand Iranian Jews and their descendants into Iran with welcoming arms? This has been one of the most persistent and ignorant errors and suppositions about Israel that all Israeli Jews originated from Europe, Russia, Canada and the United States. The truth is that half of the Israeli Jews arrived from the Arab world with many arriving with at best one suitcase, no funds, stripped of their valuable possessions, monies, jewelry, business stocks and other supplies and valuables, homes and anything else of value. This includes such nations as well as Iran of Iraq, Egypt, Algeria, Libya, Turkey, Tunisia, Yemen, Jordan and numerous others. There are a residual group of Jews remaining in some of these nations but there are some which have completely lost their Jewish population just as the Palestinians expect there to be no Jews permitted to remain in whatever lands they make their nation just as has already been executed in Gaza where there are no longer even a single Jews, IDF soldier or Jewish person of any kind. This is despite the fact that Hamas, Mahmoud Abbas and other Palestinian spokespeople and other sympathizers continue to claim Gaza as being under occupation. The same can be said for Area A in Judea and Samaria as at the same time that Israel removed all Jewish presence from every square millimeter of Gaza, Israel also removed every last vestige of Jewish or Israeli presence in Area A in Samaria which was made-up of almost a half dozen towns, kibbutzim and farming communities. Somehow, none of these sacrifices are recognized nor appreciated by most of the world with the European Union leading the charge ignorant of the real history of Israel, the British Mandate, Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, the San Remo Conference, or the entirety of the history of the ancient Jewish lands described in the Old Testament. These truths and the obligations of the world to respect their promises to Israel which are being ignored much like the reasons that the Jews were fist permitted to arrive in an area and the economic growth they facilitated when there came a crisis the local leaders found a need for a scapegoat which almost always became those Jews, those who are different from the real and original inhabitants of the lands. The difference is now the locality that is being defined where the Jews are no longer welcome is approaching the entirety of the planet as the Europeans and so many more want to grant the Palestinians the entirety of their defined homeland which they define in their chant which reads, “From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be free.”

Right off the top let me get this straight; I fully support the bombing of any infrastructure which ISIS can utilize to finance their operations including the oil refineries, both stationary and mobile, possibly even more for the mobile because of the increased abilities they provide for refining at any location. Further, I support the bombing of any location where ISIS has been proven to be quartered or any location where ISIS weapons of war, especially the heavy weapons systems stolen from the Syrian and Iraqi military supplies, even if they are placed within built-up civilian areas. Simply stated, I heartily support anything necessary in opposing, fighting and destroying every last vestige of ISIS and any terrorist group which is murdering innocents, performing forced conversions, mass murdering innocent civilians and threatening to spread their murderous intentions and activities throughout every nation simply to fulfill a religious conviction which they claim is a basic tenet demanded by the Quran and the Hadiths of all Muslims under the dogmas of Greater Jihad or any other terrorist entity which make the claim that they must oppress and convert by force under pain of death in service of their deity. That said, I also respect those military and political leaders who instruct and enforce policies and ROE (Rules of Engagement) which honor the sanctity of innocent human life and their properties and possessions to the extent that they take precautions to avoid injury and damage to these innocents and their necessities for life whenever possible and to the greatest extent as long as doing such does not prevent accomplishing the necessary and principle objectives of their mission objectives. All this in mind, I support the efforts made by the United States and their allies.

 

My question for those who demand that Israel somehow fight against terrorist entities without harming a single blade of grass or disturb even one single delicate spider’s web, let alone anything of greater importance also included is, where is your indignation over the bombing of infrastructure and possible casualties of civilians with the bombing of ISIS in Syria and Iraq? Those who across almost every border and especially those within Israel who demand that Israel cease defending her citizens and instead negotiate with those whose only goal is to murder every last Jew as they wipe our homeland from the map and try to erase the Jewish People from the annals of history are now strangely silent. Where are these very same people and why are they not demanding that the United States cease their bombing of ISIS simply because they desire a nation to call their own and negotiate with ISIS and set borders after which I am sure ISIS will rejoice and peace will reign over the Middle East and ISIS will be satisfied with fair and agreed borders and will cease threatening the world. If such is acceptable and demanded of Israel when facing Hamas which launches rockets generally aiming to strike Israeli population centers and as a part of their charter they claim their highest desire is to establish a homeland from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea and murdering every last Jew residing in Israel, how is Hamas truly any different than ISIS. They then have written into their charter the demand that they continue to spread Islam across the globe and murder every last Jew in order to bring on the establishment of Islamic end times and the final battle which results in a world of only Muslims. This is supposed to result with the leadership of Hamas in their rightful place as the leaders beside Mohammad and the holy of Allah who descended to assist in the establishment of a grand Caliphate in the final battle for the purification of the world.

 

Why should Israel not be supported in their fight for their survival from terrorists who have the same end goals of supremacy over the world as does ISIS? Israel should have every right to fight those terrorists who represent the exact same threat to all of civilization and have chosen to fight Israel initially because they think they know some simple facts that, if they prove valid, would be very sad; yet it appears that too many in the world support these ideas. Their assumptions are that as long as they mostly target Israel and limit their threats to Jews then the world will grant them a special place where despite their having exactly the same designs and end goals as the rest of the Islamist terrorist entities, they will be treated separately and permitted and even financed and supported in their struggle for as long as it takes to destroy Israel. What is unfortunate is how much the actions of the world’s governments, international organizations, nongovernmental organizations, statesmen and people of note or repute line up condemning Israel for her efforts to defend her citizens, all her citizens be they Jewish, Arab, Christian, Muslim and any other persuasion or none at all with everything and in every way possible. The extent to which Israel makes the investment and dedication of research, development, testing, refinement and perfecting in order to have a system that functions with reliable consistency to protect her people and allots the funding to build the defensive systems such as the Iron Dome which was the single most valuable asset Israel deployed in the last conflict with Hamas resulting from the aggressions by Hamas in abducting three Israeli innocent teens and murdering them followed by the launching of hundreds of rockets daily into Israel eventually resulting in over three thousand rockets fired into Israel before the conflict ceased (for now). The world demanded why so few Israelis died compared to the Palestinian casualties. There are a number of reasons but the two which are most important are that the number of combatants killed equaled the number of civilians killed which actually is a ratio that exceeds recorded ratios in conflicts and wars throughout history for lowest percentages for civilian fatalities. The other reason was the Iran Dome which intercepted well over 90% of the rockets which the Iron Dome systems computed would land in populated areas and its accuracy in making these determinations was approaching perfection. Next time that terrorists decide that the time is right to launch fierce attacks against Israel try and remember that should these terrorists ever succeed in destroying Israel their next target will be identical to ISIS, the rest of the world even including other Muslims who hold different versions of Islam, just like ISIS, and then pray Israel never falls before those terrorist forces. They are all servants who have surrendered their will and their lives to Allah.

 

There is a story which was reported by the officer who commanded one of the Iron Dome units which was guarding Tel Aviv that I wish to relate and have waited for the right time. The right time never seems to come so I decided this is close enough. This single event may provide another reason that there were so few casualties, especially fatalities, in Israel despite the massive numbers of rockets rained down on Israeli territory with most close to though not successfully targeting populated areas including Jerusalem and Tel Aviv metropolitan areas. Here is one of the many articles documenting this miracle, praise G0d. The story is partly an answer to the rumor that when asked by a reporter from an Arab news source what was wrong with the ability of the rockets to hit anything in Israel saying, Don’t you aim your rockets? The Hamas Officer’s response was, “We do aim [our rockets], but their G0d changes their path in mid-air.” There might just be something to that officer’s lament as reported by an Iron Dome commanding officer who related the story.

“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 G0d!’ I witnessed this miracle with my own eyes. It was not told or reported to me. I saw the hand of G0d send that missile into the sea.”

 

The article also relates the witness by Colonel Ofer Winter and what occurred to him and his men during their mission in Gaza. Their assault on the targeted position was delayed for technical, or less likely tactical, reasons as such adjustments in orders and/or timing for units movements and attacks once combat has been initiated, and instead of advancing under the cover of darkness they were going to move after sunrise and in the bright light of day. This alteration could only make their advance and movements more difficult and increased the risks and dangers for his men. When the moment finally came for their advance a strange fog blanketed their movements providing them concealment all the way to their objective. As he said in another article, “Suddenly a cloud protected us.” In a reference to the Bible where it describes how a fog protected the Israelites as they wandered in the desert he called the fog. “Clouds of glory.” Then quoting from Deuteronomy he added, “It really was a fulfillment of the verse ‘For the Lord your G0d is the One who goes with you to give you victory,’” Perhaps the Hamas officer spoke more truth than he knew and perhaps that makes this a great place to end.
