A Little Divine Displeasure Perhaps?

Yom Yerushalayim 5767

Arutz 7 reports:

Main J'lem Day Event Cancelled Due to Heavy Rains:

(IsraelNN.com) The official ceremony marking 40 years since the unification of Jerusalem has been canceled, after heavy, unseasonal rains caught the nation's capital by surprise Wednesday. The ceremony was to take place at Ammunition Hill.

There are traffic stoppages throughout the city, and a crater has opened up on Bar-Lev Way (highway no. 1), near Yehudai Border Police Base. The Mount Scopus tunnel is flooded and closed to traffic. At the Church of Gethsemane, two monks were rescued by police after they were caught in the flood. Tourists were also trapped at Shiloach. Several homes in Wadi Joz were flooded.


Gee. Forty years, to the day, after the recapture of Jerusalem, on a day of rejoicing, and for many the saying of Hallel and Al HaNissim, there are unseasonal rains and flash floods.

Celebrations for a day soiled by Knesseth passage of a method for new land giveaways to the Arabs, and continued rocket bombardment of the Northern Negev, had to be canceled.

Forty years ago, after recapturing the Har HaBayith (the Temple Mount), it was given over to the Wakt (Muslim religious authority). Since then the Sinai Peninsula was won and given back, finalized by the expulsion and destruction of the coastal town of Yamit. Jewish resettlement of Azza was encouraged, and then destroyed, along with its counterparts in the northern Shomron.

Jews are still "not allowed" to pray on Har HaBayith.

Oh, yeah, HaShem promised he'd never use flooding for the destruction of the world.

But, he never said anything about expressing His displeasure.

It's possible.

With whom is HaShem displeased?

With members of the evil government regime?

Or with those of us who allow the government regime to continue on its path of destruction of Jewish lives, Jewish homes, Torah, and attempts at undoing HaShem's work,...His miracles?

Flooding in Yerushalayim reminds me of the incident relayed to us in Maseches Sukkos in which Dovid HaMelech averted disastrous flooding under the advice of Achitofel by tossing a shard of pottery into the waters with Shem HaShem inscribed on it, and then when it descended too much he sang Shir HaMaalos in order to raise it to normal levels.
