I didn't see in your firewall configuration that you were allowing udp 
port 500.  But perhaps you are allowing all traffic to/from the Juniper, 
I didn't look for that.

Anyway, if that doesn't seem to be it, could I also see your log file 
from an attempt to start IPsec?

For my boxes, it's /var/log/auth or /var/log/auth.log.  Sometimes it's 
in /var/log/secure though.
