Did God block ISIS from Israel?

A firestorm of controversy has erupted over a video by Israel News Online that shows a storm cloud perched on Israel’s border that apparently blocked ISIS from entering the Golan Heights region.

“Absolutely the divine intervention of God protecting Israel. Amen!” wrote Charlotte Van Dam, after the news organization posted the video, obtained from a soldier, and said, “Any suggestions what, how and why please comment below.”

The Facebook posting explained, “A weather phenomenon occurred at 8 am Thursday on the other side of the Syrian border, in the same place where ISIS attacked Israel.”

From the WND Superstore now available is “Against All Odds – Israel Survives: The Complete First Season,” about the facts. Those are that Israel has triumphed through four major wars and relentless terror attacks, and it asks whether a divine power upholds the country.

“This strange storm of what appears to be dust, cloud and rain did NOT cross the border fence into Israel. It sat like a barrier between ISIS and Israel.”

The video:

The London Mirror said: “Claims are being made that a biblical storm cloud of dust and rain was ‘sent by God’ to act as a barrier between Israel and ISIS. The huge storm allegedly stopped on the border of Syria, and was ‘unable’ to enter Israel’s Golan Heights region.”

Another, more prosaic, visitor to the Facebook page added, “It’s simply a weather phenomenon,” to which Israel News Online responded: “Yes it is of course. Now do we ask who controls the weather? Whatever the cause it sat between ISIS and Israel and did not enter Israel.”

“Obed Adore” said: “These dust clouds are normal and common phenomenona (sic) across the deserts of the Middle East and Africa. Those old enough could even remember the botched rescue of the American hostages in Tehran caused by even heavier dust/sandstorm.”

And Eric Crane wrote: “It’s a long shelf cloud. Nothing more. Saw it more times than I can count while living in Kansas. Why some of you idiots stretch things for more than they are is the unbelievable. It’s either race, gender, politics, religion, and now you can add weather to the list.”

However, the Mirror’s unscientific online poll found 87 percent see the event as an act of God, while only 13 percent believe it is simply a weather phenomenon.

And when Jerry Salyer wrote, “I’ve posted twice that this story is fake yet you completely ignore that FACT and continue to praise this ‘miraculous’ weather event,” Israel News Online responded, “How is it fake? It is a video made by a soldier who was there. What is fake about that? People can choose to believe why the cloud sat there, in that place, in whatever way they wish. The video, date and time are genuine.”

The explanation continued: “For some just the fact it was there is enough. Belief is powerful. Weather facts are true too. Maybe it’s just a coincidence that it sat between ISIS and the IDF camp. Who knows and actually who cares. It lifted the spirits of over a million people in this page along for whatever their individual reasons are.

“That’s powerful in itself.”
