Every now and then we are reminded by events that providence has saved our civilization from disaster.
There was, for example, reminds my friend Narciso, the Bojinka plot In which Ramzi Yousef and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed planned to assassinate Pope John Paul II, bomb 11 passenger planes, and crash a plane into CIA headquarters. A chemical fire in one of the plotters kitchens disrupted those plans. (Khalid went on to commit other atrocities -- including planning 9/11 -- but providence cannot always protect us.)
This week the Daily Mail reported that the underwear bomber failed in his mission because he had not changed his underwear for the 2 weeks before boarding the plane, degrading the bomb inside his pants.
Today, with Hamas army demoralized and almost certainly whipped we have another example of providence preventing enormous tragedy and mayhem.
Had thugs not brutally murdered three young men in Israel, the Israelis would not have stepped up efforts to find those responsible. Had the Israelis not done so Hamas would not have begun the rocket barrage into Israel. Had the rocket barrage not occurred and not ceased, the Israelis would not have entered Gaza, Had the Israelis not entered Gaza they would not have found the tunnel system, or the storage there of fake IDF uniforms, sedatives, handcuffs, and ropes, nor learned of the long- planned Hamas effort to send thousands of their troops deep into lightly guarded Israeli communities on the holiest of days, Rosh Hashanah, to murder thousands and capture and hold as hostages countless more.
The murder of the three young men set in motion something that may have saved Israel from unthinkable disaster.

If a nation is not righteous, the opposite of providence can occur.
If the Jews were the people who were living in a sparsely populated, undeveloped land who were attacking the Palies as they tried to live peaceably, the lefties would again be attacking the Jews. In short, if the shoe were on the other foot, the anti-Semites would still be attacking Jews.
All the lefties whining about the Israeli "apartheid" state know full well that if the country became mostly Muslim, it would cease to exist. When the population reaching the tipping point, there would be constant civil wars. Jews would be massacred, and the democratic state of Israel would cease to exist. Lefties know that and in fact, desire that.
And yet, most American Jews support these same lefties. I'll never understand that.
In my view you’re absolutely correct.
