This is awesome news. As a theological student in my second semester, here are two excerpts from the article, along with a terrorist who was quoted in a newspaper.

 

'Hand of God sent missile into sea'
Iron Dome operator: 'I witnessed this miracle with my own eyes'

 

“We fired the first [interceptor]. It missed. Second [interceptor]. It missed. This is very rare. I was in shock. At this point we had just four seconds until the missile lands. We had already notified emergency services to converge on the target location and had warned of a mass-casualty incident. 

“Suddenly, Iron Dome (which calculates wind speeds, among other things) shows a major wind coming from the east, a strong wind that … sends the missile into the sea. We were all stunned. I stood up and shouted, ‘There is a God!’

“I witnessed this miracle with my own eyes. It was not told or reported to me. I saw the hand of God send that missile into the sea.”

 

 

Next incident:
 

 

Winter indicated a predawn raid intended to use darkness as cover was delayed, forcing the soldiers to move toward their objective as sunrise was approaching.

 
With the troops in danger of being exposed at daybreak, Winter explained how heavy fog quickly descended to shroud their movements until their mission was accomplished.
 
“Suddenly a cloud protected us,” he said, referring to clouds the Bible says guided the ancient Israelites as they wandered in the desert. “Clouds of glory.”
 
Winter said only when the soldiers were in a secure position, the fog finally lifted.
 
“It really was a fulfillment of the verse ‘For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to give you victory,’” he said, quoting Deuteronomy 20:4.

This brings me great joy and really deepens what I have learned in theological college.

For Muslims, the god of Jews, and Christians is the same (one god) as the god of Muslims :/

Trick question, they are one and the same for the most part. The idea that god diverts 2 rockets but lets a thousand or so people die over this latest conflict is laughable at best.

Religion—the illogical and unsupportable belief in mythical sky beings and magical prophets—is the very reason the world is the mess that it is. If any God would protect Israel while allowing Palestinian civilians to be slaughtered en masse then that's not a God I would want to know.

I feel sorry for the OP, I really do.  It sounds as if he has bought into this whole-heartedly.

It sounds like he actually thinks this happened, and that god (I never capitalize that)  chose to divert 2 missles, yet still let 20,000 babies die today....some horribly.

I feel sorry the OP has chosen this path ("theology student in my second semester") -  I only hope he decides to start reading the harder books instead of 1 easy one while he is a student.   :no:

Interesting how all these atheists (?) dog pile on religion, yet many who are religious choose not to berate them, just either stand aside and not say anything or stand up for what they believe in. No athiest gives the benefit of the doubt. Except, I was watching Star Trek Voyager, and in quite a few episodes they (the writers) chose to incorporate Christian references even as Scientific and Futuristic a show as it is. Now, media, magazines, TV, and the Internet are afraid of Religion. Interesting isn't it?

Yeah, God was quite happy to sit back and watch hundreds of children be bombed and murdered but swatted one missile away. Please.

In terms of TV, it's a lazy and boring plot device, that's been used over and over again, that allows writers to write themselves out of any situation they get themselves into. The final season of Lost used it, and it did not go down well, not because of its themes, but because it was obvious the writers didn't know what they were doing. If they'd done that with say, Breaking Bad, that wouldn't have been remotely entertaining. People expect a little more effort from TV shows and movies than they used to, nothing to do with being "afraid" of religion.
