Today's News: And I shall Harden Pharoah's Heart...

In this week's Parsha, it says, "וַאֲנִי אֲחַזֵּק אֶת-לִבּוֹ" And I shall harden [Pharoah's] heart... (Shmos 4:21)

And why did Hashem harden Pharoah's heart? "וְהִרְבֵּיתִי אֶת-אֹתֹתַי וְאֶת-מוֹפְתַי, בְּאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם..." "[So that I may] multiply my signs and wonders in the land of Egypt" (or in this case, bordering Gaza). (Shmos 7:3)
