Nothing Is Coincidence

I can’t help thinking that it is not coincidental that the Arab world is in an uproar during the month of Adar – especially this year, when there are two of them. (We Jews go according to the lunar calendar, and every few years add a month to our year so that our holidays are always in the correct season. This year is one of these years).

The story of Adar, with its main holiday of Purim, is one of G-d working behind the scenes. I think G-d is doing a whole lot of that now, and we probably won’t know exactly what for a long time. Rabid Jew haters dying on Purim are not just the stuff of ancient history – Stalin collapsed with a stroke (although there was a book published that claims that he was poisoned) on Purim in 1953.
