comment Why were there so many killings by Jews in the Old Testament?
@Shmuel God gave the reason and even warned the Jews that if they would do the same evil deeds, the land would vomit them out, which it eventually did.

comment do we really have free choice?
the Rambam wrote specifically not like this on the mishna in Rosh Hashana "all are examined in one sweeping look (skira achat)" but rather that God is not bound to time, all of the past and the future are before Him simultaneously as something in the present

if you believe the text than you must also believe they were ordered by God.

comment Do Neanderthals had soul?
@IsaacMoses the premises to the question are against judaism such as the he is a descendant of neanderthals which negates the whole torah.

comment Leaving the room during a kabbalistic dvar Torah
the ben ish chai book on halacha always starts with a kabalistic drasha and this is addressed to the masses. i think you have to take R.Ovadiah's words in context. there are sefardi yeshivas in israel which teach kabala to beginners such as R.Beniyahu shmueli's yeshiva. He was a student of Rav Kaduri.
