Skeptic News: Israel's 'miracle healer' says he thwarted Gaza rockets

From: Israel Today

Oren Zarif, an Israeli “miracle healer” who claims to have psychic powers, told Israel’s Ynet news portal this week that he has done as much, if not more, than the Iron Dome anti-missile system to thwart Hamas missiles coming from Gaza.

Addressing the rocket-battered residents of southern Israel, Zarif said, “You have nothing to worry about. In another day or two it will all be over. Oren Zarif is returning to your area to influence the situation.”

Zarif said he gives full credit to the Israeli army for doing a great job, but insists that Israel owes him just as much thanks.

“I see all these politicians thanking this and thanking that, but giving no credit to Oren Zarif,” said the controversial figure, as his interviewer chuckled quietly next to him. “You need to understand, when you see missiles falling harmlessly into open area, this is happening because Oren Zarif is operating in unconventional ways.”

Zarif also claims he cannot use his powers to influence Hamas leaders because “they only speak Arabic”.

A new low for psychic opportunism?
