There is no surprise that in the attempt to delegitimize Israel' claim to their land, that the most compelling argument that gives their claim legitimization is, in fact, Biblical; and for that reason the Biblical basis is, and for the duration, under attack. We as mortal free thinkers cannot comprehend the Israeli right to their ancient homeland because in our exquisitely limited mortal thinking, well, people just do not want to think that way. But there is the caution: it is not mortal thinking that gives Israel the Biblical promise: the promise comes from the higher source, the WORD of Israel's Eternal Sovereign.

Now, there is implied here by your assertion that a miracle is shared between Israel and modern Germany by virtue of their similarities of statehood; but while they are connected, Biblically, it is not in the way you infer. To quote: [Who would have imagined today's Israel given the Arab threat faced by a bunch of survivors, refugees, who barely survived, from all over Europe united in some desolate place?] Who would have imagined? It is in the Bible, plain for those who understand its application that Israel is back in the land under the promise and this time, anyone trying to mess with Israel is going to face the same judgment that was meted out to previous meddlers.

One cannot acknowledge Israel as being some kind of modern day miracle without acknowledging the source of the miracle, her Almighty Sovereign, Who is working out Israel's destiny right before our eyes. The plan and pattern of history's participants having any and every connection with Israel and her people show that indeed, the promise to Abraham, blessing to Israel's friend and curses to her enemies, is as active and intense as it ever was; and it is not going to cease until Israel's' kingdom is fully restored.

In case it is going unnoticed by any, the next phase is already under way………..
