Scientific Proof: What Happened This Weekend was a True Miracle

I wanted to share with you something that is much more than just a feeling I have, but something that rather comes from a genuine calculation: What happened in Israel last Motzaei Shabbat [Saturday night] – the interception of the hundreds of missiles and drones fired at us by Iran – was a miracle on the scale of the Splitting of the Red Sea.

I worked for several years in the defense industry in Israel, on projects that are still the cutting-edge technologies in the defense of the State of Israel. When I look at what happened on Motzaei Shabbat on a scientific level, my conclusion is that, statistically, it simply cannot happen.

The chances that everything, but really everything, would work out as it did, simply do not exist in complex systems like those that were used to defend Israel from the massive Iranian attack.
These systems have never, ever, been tested before in real time, and not only in the State of Israel.
I took a pencil and dove into the calculations to check the statistical probability that such a result could happen. The large number of events that had to be handled, with each incoming missile or UAV having to be handled independently (that is, one human error or any deviation of one operation can have deadly consequences, for it is not offset by the other successful operations), compounds and multiplies the chance of failure.

With all our great technologies, some measure of breach was definitely expected in our defense of the skies of the State of Israel. Even if we had achieved 90% protection, it would have been a miracle!! But what happened was that everyone, but everyone – the pilots, the systems operators, the technology operators, and everyone else – acted as one person during those hours, in total unity.
If this is not an act of G-d, then I no longer know what a miracle is.

It is greater than the victories of the Six Day War and the War of Independence. Those wars can also be explained through natural events. But – the salvation that took place for the people of Israel on Motzaei Shabbat is simply impossible, from a natural point of view. I believe that this miracle saved the lives of many people from Israel.

If our defense systems had failed to intercept even a small number of cruise missiles, the result would have dragged us into a very complex war. I wouldn’t bet that next time it will work out in the same way, without Divine supervision. The simple proof of this is that the managers of the defense industries, who develop and manufacture these systems, guarantee no more than 90% success! Yet, as we all saw with our own eyes, it was actually 99.9% !!!
Thank You G-d!!
