I heard that recently an Arab officer claimed that they are competent with aiming their missiles but that Hashem is helping Eretz Yisroel

Does anyone know a source for this [online or other]?

I found this, but I couldn't find a direct news source. – Fred Jul 14 '14 at 18:27
A source that some Arab said that, or a source he might be drawing on for his claim about Hashem? The first seems off-topic (a question about current events). – Monica Cellio Jul 15 '14 at 3:32

According to this:

It was a partial quote from Barbara Ordman, who lives in Ma’ale Adumim on the West Bank.

Her exact quotation was: "As one of the terrorists from Gaza was reported to say when asked why they couldn’t aim their rockets more effectively: “We do aim them, but their God changes their path in mid-air."

Barbara Ordman is a Jew saying this in support of Israel, so at best this is a rumor that was printed in the press.

This is the original op-ed from Barbara Ordman.
