Every newborn baby is a miracle. Yet the birth of Yitzchak, (Isaac), defied all the rules of reason and biology. Rather than bow their heads in awe of the enormity of the miracle that G-d wrought, the pundits and gadflies of the day cast doubt upon the veracity of Yitzchak’s origins. Fast-forward to today, replace “Yitzchak” with “the state of Israel” and gain some insight into Israel’s contemporary denigrators and their pathetic denial of truth and reality.
