Unanswered Prayers

A great and moving post on Tzipiyah: No Is Also An Answer (hat tip)

I wonder whether (some of) the Gush Katif evacuees would be having such faith problems if, instead of insisting that God would not let the Disengagement happen, their leadership had physically and emotionally prepared their community for it (and negotiated with the government for guarantess about adequate relocation and compensation). At the time, people were saying that it is psychologically better to fight for your home than to just walk away from it. Isn't there someplace in between they could have been? I don't think it's politically correct to suggest that but I'm putting it out there. We might have to confront it again and maybe we should learn from the past.
