Yuval, please don't try to scare us.

Reader comment on item: Two Palestines, Anyone?
in response to reader comment: Actually, it is four Palestinian States

"I guess sovereignty over the Holy Land is too much of a burden for the Jewish people. This episode may end soon in rivers of blood, as in Darfur, iraq and treblinka. Unless a miracle supervenes."

Yuval, please don't try to scare us. We know very well the intentions of our PEACEFUL neighbors. If it was up to them this "episode" would have ended in rivers of blood already 60 years ago or even earlier. Thank G-d we are well supplied with miracles. The mere survival of our People throughout almost 2000 years of dispersion among ferociously hostile "host" societies was one of the biggest ongoing Miracles. For those who were inclined to disqualify this as a miracle we received the Holocaust, those 10 years of reign of the Nazi terror, for demonstrating us the natural course of a world without miracles…

The rebirth of the Jewish State in the Land of Israel in our age and in front of our eyes is not less of a miracle than the biblical Exodus from Egyptian bondage. Unfortunately, but not unexpectedly, today we also have our ups and downs not much differently than in those glorious biblical times.

A wise person once said: -"We don't believe in miracles, we just count on them". I think that in our case -"We don't believe in miracles - WE ARE THE MIRACLE!" would be a more correct statement. And this will always be true, regardless of the outcome.

We just cannot escape our destiny to be one of the clearest manifestations of G-d's rule on Earth.
