Miracle Glasses

Some are able to recognize a Nes when they see it:

West Bank Mama:
...The article that I linked to has an interesting line. It says that the police are mystified why the terrorist just wandered around and didn’t blow himself up. I guess if one uses only his “regular brains” it is, indeed, mystifying. But if one uses his “yiddishe kop” (Jewish brains) it isn’t mystifying at all.

The missing piece of the puzzle is, of course, what we religious Jews call Ribbono Shel Olam, which is translated into English as the “Ruler of the World”. G-d is ultimately in charge of everything that happens in the world...
...It can’t be that the IDF and Shin Bet are that much better than the US military. Someone Else must be playing a big role in Israel’s defense; it just doesn’t make sense otherwise.

And it is a shame that more Israelis don’t see this. But they will.

A day is coming that the strength of their own arms will fail (we started to see this already with the debacle in Lebanon last summer), and the nation will see and understand Who it is that defends them.

G-d is protection not the army.
If you think different than you think that G-d is not behind the people and groups and nations for what they do.They all work for the same One,who is the Life's Designer.

Why does it say in Hallel:

"Yehallelu et Hashem kol goyim, Shabechuhu kol haumim - Ki gavar aleinu chasdo"

"All the goyim will praise Hashem, all the nations will extol Him - because His kindness was mighty upon US"

Why should the goyim praise Hashem if His kindness was upon the Jews?

One answer is that only the goyim know to what extent they attempt to destroy us. Most of those attempts we don't even know about.

Only the goyim know about all their evil attemps that Hashem has saved us from.

Therefore, in this way, they are often in a better position even than us to see the great kindness that Hashem has bestowed upon us.

Yehudi Yerushalmi,

Long time no post!

It's funny, I just heard that same Peshat on Ki Gavar Aleinu Hasdo a couple weeks ago. Thanks for pointing that out here.

If there is One Gardener for all flowers and plants in the garden, than why do some think that the Gardener does water just one plant and not all of them? Who does water them? The "clouds"?
