Where's God?

My friend Jon points out the other glaring absence in Genesis 34. All this commotion going on and no-one even mentions God. Dinah's dad, Jacob, who's constantly bargaining with God, erecting stones as God-altars, and naming places for God (El- this and that), doesn't seem to consult or refer to God at all in this episode. What if he had?
