Rabbi and Physics Prof. Both Point to Hand of God in Israel's Escape from Iranian Missile Onslaught

JERUSALEM, Israel – After Iran's missile barrage last week against Israel, many people here who endured the explosions and sirens during the night were both relieved and stunned to learn that 99 percent of the more than 300 drones and missiles fired at them were shot down, and most did not even make it to Israeli airspace.

Many people are touting the country's military prowess and the nation's advances in defensive technology; others are grateful for the alliance with the U.S., the U.K., and even Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

Yet, the prevailing sense – even in a country that is largely secular – is that Israel was blessed with a Divine intervention.

Rabbi Yitzchok Adlerstein from the Simon Wiesenthal Center put it best when he said, "We were all witness to nothing short of a miracle of biblical proportions."

Meanwhile, tech columnist Hillel Fuld reports it's not just religious leaders who see the hand of God in the protection of Israel. 

Fuld points to some analysis he obtained by a professor of physics named Maximilian Abitbol who says there's no earthly explanation for the fact that Israel was able to successfully fend off 99.9% of the incoming missiles and drones – a nearly perfect rate.

Abitbol, who is also reportedly a defense industry expert, uses his knowledge in technology and physics to determine that there's no way to achieve a 99.9% success rate without divine intervention.

"What happened in Israel on last Motzaei Shabbat was not less than the scale of the splitting of the Red Sea," Abitbol reportedly stated.
