Victims flew through the air and machine guns jammed.

A few days ago, we reported via our Telegram channel on a terrorist attack in Jerusalem in which two pedestrians were lightly injured. The perpetrators were later caught and are now awaiting trial.

We almost missed the fact that this attack could have ended much worse. As can be seen in the following video, the pedestrians literally flew into the air when the terrorists’ car drove into them. The first miracle: victims were only lightly injured.

The terrorists’ car then stopped while two other pedestrians first began to walk towards the vehicle. However, they realize in time that this was not an accident but an attack, and quickly run away.

The first terrorist immediately gets out of the car and opens fire toward one of the pedestrians, but his machine gun doesn’t work: second miracle. As the terrorist turns to his comrade, two Jews can be seen running away. Before, they were apparently in the line of fire.

Eventually, the two terrorists run away, with one of them possibly reaching for a pistol in his pants.

One could consider it another miracle that there were hardly any other people in this obviously ultra-Orthodox part of the city at the time. Such neighborhoods are usually full of passersby and children playing in the streets.

The longing for a miracle

As we in Israel engage in Passover, which commemorates the miraculous exodus of the Jewish people from Egypt, we hope for a modern miracle to deliver us from our current crisis.

Once again Israel is being oppressed from all directions and the people are looking toward heaven for their redemption. The successful defense from the Iranian missile attack was seen by many as a miracle, and the terrorist attack described above could also be seen as a miracle.

People see what they want to see, and we in Israel now want to see miracles that show us that we are still under God’s protection and that there is a way out of our situation.

In the current conflict, God has held back on more obvious miracles, but many soldiers tell of small miracles that happened to them during their deployment in Gaza.

However, it may take a great, obvious miracle, like the plagues of Egypt, or the parting of the Red Sea, to bring Israel victory in this war. The week of Passover ends on April 29th, so God still has some time to send us a true Passover miracle.
