    Interesting point. What is the impact on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? Since security comes from above, why insist on Israeli control over the entire west bank and gaza? Israel can retain control over the areas where Israelis now live and let Palestinians have their own state.

    Anon, we are not supposed to take steps to empower our enemies. HaShem expects us to defend ourselves, and sometimes to initiate military action, as is clear from Tanach.

    When I visited Hevron last spring, I was amazed to see Jewish children running around the streets playing, unguarded. I asked the guide about the danger of this, and he responded in terms of G*d’s protection.
    He then took us to the memorial for Shalhevet Pass, the 10 month old infant shot by a Palestinian sniper.
    I found this very difficult.
