This is from God- 1967 Miracle -War 40th Anniversary (Israel-Jews)
"This is from God"
Jun 6, 2007
On the modern calendar, June 7, 2007 is the 40th anniversary of the miracle Six-Day War and Israel recapturing Jerusalem and the Temple Mount after being in Gentile hands for 1,870 years (since AD 70). The war's swift outcome was truly a miracle as shown by unexplained enemy blunders.
As the war began, Israel found itself outnumbered and out-gunned on three fronts, Egypt to the south, Jordan to the west and Syria to the north. The Soviet Union had poured $2 billion worth of arms into the Arab nations. Israel's enemies brought twice as many soldiers, three times as many tanks and four times as many airplanes to the battlefield.
But just before the war, Egypt, Israel's main enemy suffered a series of major mistakes and mishaps.
"There was this miscommunication between Nasser and his top generals," Channel 2 Military Correspondent Ehud Yaari said. "And everything didn't work to what they thought. And when the war broke, you could see and hear, which we did. We heard them. You could see and hear that the Egyptian high command was not in control."
Egypt's high command also dismissed warnings by mid-level Egyptian intelligence officers of an imminent Israeli air attack.
The night before the war, Egypt's commander-in-chief, Abd al-Hakim Amer gathered his high command for a party at an air base far away from the front lines. "They were caught by surprise, totally," Yaari said. "I mean some of them tried to get into the air in order to join their units. They couldn't do it."
Two weeks before the war, Egypt replaced all of its commanders in Sinai with officers unfamiliar with the terrain.
On the morning of June 5, Jordanian radar detected the Israeli Air Force taking off. They sent a red alert to Cairo but the decoding officer used the wrong day's code and failed to decipher the vital information! The warning never came. Instead, the Israeli Air Force decimated the Egyptian Air Force on the ground, the key to the outcome of the war.
Incredible blunders! It reminds me of God's warning to Egypt in Isaiah 19:14: The LORD hath mingled a perverse spirit in the midst thereof: and they have caused Egypt to err in every work thereof, as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit.
Author Sarah Rigler, who's written about the Six Day War, believes that series of Egyptian mistakes revealed the work of an unseen hand:
"You can say, what a lucky coincidence or you can see the Divine Hand," she said. "You can see God arranged all these things to happen the way they did because He wanted the Israeli strike to succeed. He wanted us to win. He wanted us to regain our holy places."
Famous General Moshe Dayan, the commander of the Israeli forces, was a very secular person. Yet he went to visit the Western Wall the day after it was liberated. There's a tradition to put notes to God in the wall. So even he put a little note to God in the crevices in the wall.
As soon as he left, a newspaper man ran and took the note out and read it. What did it say?
It was a line from Psalms that said; 'This is from God. It's wondrous in our eyes." (Psalm 118:23).
