19 Shevat 5782
Erev Shabbat Kodesh
Moses told his father-in-law everything that Hashem had done to Pharaoh and Egypt for Israel's sake - all the travail that had befallen them on the way - and that Hashem had rescued them.
Jethro rejoiced over all the good that Hashem had done for Israel, that He had rescued it from the hand of Egypt. Jethro said, "Blessed is Hashem, Who has rescued you from the hand of Egypt and from the hand of Pharaoh, Who has rescued the people from under the hand of Egypt. Now I know that Hashem is greater than all the gods, for in the very matter in which [the Egyptians] had conspired against them...!
Ah! There it is! Another conspiracy "theory" - actually conspiracy FACT! Yitro was there when Paro conspired to kill the Jewish babies by drowning them in the river, and here, HKB"H, measure for measure, destroyed the Egyptians by drowning them in the sea. The irony - and the justice - of it was not lost on Yitro, nor on any of the surrounding nations who heard of it.
Very soon, the story will be told again and this time, it will be the New Egypt - the New World Order Egypt - and its erstwhile Pharaoh who will be on the receiving end of HKB"H's mida k'neged mida justice and the whole surviving world who had suffered under the heavy hand of this New Egypt will be praising Hashem for His rescue.
