Yes. It makes no sense to say, "God allowed it to happen."
Amos says, "If Disaster falls on a city, has not God been at work?"
Isaiah reports God saying, "I work weal and I work woe."
The issue isn't whether God caused it, but why. And the answer is not given to us; at least as far as I am aware. This may very well be another Jobean dilemma.
