Only Good Comes From Shamayim

Via email from a Noachide:

Last week one of the world's worst terrorists, Mughniyeh, was killed (GREAT NEWS). My question is, do you think that the Jewish people are doing spiritually something good because HaShem permitted this horrible terrorist to die?

I mean the death of this terrorist is something very good, so HaShem is happy with the Jews, right?

Technically, it's very good for the Jews as we say in Shirat Devorah, כן יאבדו כל אויביך May all Your enemies die like this.

BUT, we don't know Shamayim's calculations. I'll give you an example so it's better understood. Let's say you began viewing a movie that is towards the end and you don't understand what is going on and who'se against who... This is our lives, the 'movie' began 5,768 years ago and we are now towards the end of it. We don't know or understand what is good and what is bad. We are taught that nothing bads comes from Shamayim and therefore, death of terrorists and enemies of the Jews and HaShem is very good news.

But since we do not have an understanding of calculations in Shamayim, we pray that none of the Jews will be harmed and Moshiach will come with much needed mercy, amen.
