Do you wonder at the plagues that have befallen us in Eretz Yisrael?
Record numbers of construction accidents resulting in deaths
Record numbers of auto accidents with deaths
Record numbers of fires
Vandalism and destruction of synagogues and Torah scrolls
So many deaths of children by various means
...And the Lord said to [the recording angel], "Pass through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and you shall mark a sign upon the foreheads of the men who are sighing and moaning over all the abominations that were done in its midst."
And to [the destroying angels], He said in my ears, "Pass through the city after him and smite; let your eye spare not and have no pity. Old man, young man, and maiden, young children and women, you shall slay utterly, but to any man upon whom there is the mark you shall not draw near, and you shall commence from My sanctuary." So they commenced from the old men who were before the House.
... "The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great, and the land has become full of bloodshed, and the city has become full of perversion, for they said, 'The Lord has forsaken the earth, and the Lord does not see.' I too - My eye will not spare, neither will I have pity; I have placed their way on their head." (Yechezkel 9.4-6, 9-10)
