You can link these events to prophecy if you wish but it's hard to see God in this. I know that someday He will show up big time over there ... I am praying that it is soon ... and that He shows up in the hearts of those on both sides who believe that violence is the answer.
The thing I must ask myself is what role do I play in this? What role do any of us sitting comfortably in our armchairs play in this? God could show up all on his own but it is mostly He will show up through the actions of those who are following hard after Him ... and they will impact the world.
