A commentor on the Eretz Yisroel Undivided mailing list wrote this, in the name of Rabbi Manis Friedman, shlita...
Rabbi Friedman said, in a shiur about Chanukah, that there is reality and then there are facts. The facts said that a small group of rag tag religious Jews could not succeed against the whole ancient Greek army. But they did! They were called the Maccabees.
Facts also said that a small group of war-torn Jews, ill-equipped, outnumbered, could not succeed against 5 invading armies....But they succeeded...and we now have the modern state of Israel.
We just need to have bitochon (trust in Hashem)....take the necessary steps...and with G-d's help, we will have a miracle!!!!!!
