Hakol Min Shamayim

14 Kislev 5776

People don't see Divine Providence at work because they aren't looking for it.

A couple of weeks ago, the Europeans passed a law requiring the labeling of products made in Israeli "settlements" in the hope that people won't buy them and the loss of revenue will bankrupt the people living in those areas. (European Commission Adopts Guidelines for Labeling Products From Israeli Settlements)

Who could have foreseen then that Turkey would shoot down a Russian jet and open up a new market to Israeli products? (Russia: No Turkish imports, we will import from Israel)


Sometimes though, it takes a bit longer to see how the Creator manages His world. Seventy-five years ago, the democratic enlightened western nations closed their doors to the Jewish refugees from Hitler's Europe. (The Abandonment of the Jews) When Judgment Day arrives, they might have claimed in their own defense fears from some imagined dire consequences.

However, we see how when there are a similar number of non-Jewish "refugees" who present - not an imagined, but - a clear and present existential danger to their host countries, nothing, not even self-preservation will deter them. (Coming soon: More immigrants from Muslim nations than population of D.C. — 680,000) What will be their excuse now???
