If you wish, you can make these comments and ask these questions of the veg-Christian list. That way your could get the thoughts of others, too.
We've thought about your question about Israel on several occasions over the years, and the only answer we seem to get is that God works in mysterious way. Furthermore, Israel has always had a history of warfare with its neighbors. There are things that have happened and not happened that confuse the issue, so we are left with trusting in God and praying for peace.
In the Love of the Lord,
