In past decades, amid wars and skirmishes, debate raged whether Israel should give away land. Some said, it would allow the Palestinians to be happy, and peace would reign. Others warned of the dangers.
Yet even after the latter opinion was, in recent days, proven correct, many still are trying to promote a two-state solution. They advocate “revitalizing” the Palestinians, giving them Gaza, and establishing a Palestinian state on the West Bank too.
But with all the debate, with all the fighting, with all the back and forth, and with all the uncertainty, something extraordinary seems to be happening: a fait accompli.
All of a sudden, it may not matter what this one says, or what that one says. Because there is now potential, that Gaza may become empty. And if that happens, then the whole debate about who should rule the people of Gaza, becomes moot.
When we say a blessing before drinking a cup of water, we bless G-d, our G-d, King of the world, that everything is created by His word.
And the Lubavitcher Rebbe explained, that everything, not just the water, is created constantly, and exists, via the word of G-d.
Everything exists because G-d constantly keeps it existing. Everything that happens, happens by Divine Providence. Including the possibility that Gaza may soon become empty, so that peace can finally be effectively achieved.
By His word.
