Yes, I am referring to the Iron Dome. Or am I? Those of us who believe in God would argue that there has been an invisible shield over the Jewish State since its creation. Only now it is in a more visible physical form.
I was pleased when earlier today a major news channel assessed the situation in a more honest and accurate manner. FOX News, in a report about the Iron Dome, said the following. I paraphrase:
‘When 4 Palestinian children were killed in Israeli attacks it captured world attention, however when one looks at the map of where Hamas is firing it shows that a large percentage are aimed towards highly populated civilian areas.’
The importance of this statement, one I discussed in a previous piece about what many in the world call a “disproportionate response”, (CLICK TO READ), is that it reveals how Hamas is not attempting to miss Jewish civilians, they are indeed targeting them. Were it not for the amazing technology, invented by Israel and funded by the United States, these missiles would have caused serious damage and even worse, a large loss of life. The science of the Iron Dome technology can certainly be used to argue against Divine intervention, but those such as myself who do believe in God will maintain that it is not only another example of God’s hand but one made more visible to people at a time when faith is more critical than ever.
Either way, thank God it works.
