I am not in flaming mode. Just genuinely curious on this point. When people ask why does God allow famine, floods and other attrocities, a typical Christian response is that:

1. It is God's will;
2. It is beyond the scope of human understanding to fully comprehend God's will;
3. Who are we, mere humans, to question God's will

Why are the recent terroist attacks any different. If everything happens because it is God's will for it to happen, then it was God's will that the terroist acts happen. Surely you should be rejoicing with the Palestinians that God's will was done. It seems hypocritical to say attrocities are God's will when they happen to foreigners. But they are the devil's work when they happen to Americans.
