Miraculous benefits of terror for Israel

The Boston bombing was good news for Israel, or so says Ron Dermer, one of Netanyahu’s closest aides and the man tipped to be the next Israeli ambassador to Washington.

Dermer: “If you can look, historically, there was a big change after 9/11, and I am sure that after the tragic bombing in Boston, people will identify more with Israel and its struggle against terrorism and we can maintain that support.”

He’s far from the first Israeli to find good fortune for Israel in misfortune for the US. Remember those mysterious Israelis who cheered the destruction of the Twin Towers and then were smuggled out of the US; and the head of the Mossad and Israel’s National Security Adviser who told the security establishment that 9/11 was a “Hanukkah miracle”.
