Israel and Lebanon

Many comments have been made regarding the eschatological significance of the Israel / Hezbollah / Lebanon war. I'm not convinced that there is a significant significance. Don't get me wrong. I believe that God works all things for His purpose, and this certainly falls under the umbrella of "all things." But some has said that Israel should continue to assault their enemies, in the hopes that their efforts will usher in the return of Jesus Christ. I can't yet agree with that assessment. Certainly God is for His people, but I'm not convinced that the country we call Israel is to be concidered "His people." Time will tell.
