Yes, but not one intent. If God only made the capacity to do evil things, and we made the choice to do evil things, then there is no indication of intent by God to do evil things. He gave us a choice, in order for us to chose the good rather than having no choice; evil was the only other option (if one defines evil as action opposed to God and His Will). Humans choose and chose evil with the intent of not doing God's will, so the intent that led to evil actions originated with our consideration and action upon the choices.
I think people see some sort of implication that because God has to allow evil acts to be done, that He intends for evil to continue to exist, when a more accurate statement would be that He permits it only because of His promise of free will.
I would find it difficult to distinguish between divine intent and the current reality of the world, a deity who is both omnipotent and omniscient must have known very well the results of his acts of creation, and being omnipotent could create the world such that the exact results he desired came to pass. We can only reasonably conclude that the world, in the state it is now, was the intent of God, who neither desires nor is able to claim incompetence nor ignorance. The world is exactly how God wants it, to say otherwise negates his authority; thus, he created people with the desire that they do evil things.
With that said, I would not argue that God is evil, using our colloquial definition of the term essentialy meaning 'not good'. I find juxtaposing good and evil as two opposites to be an overly simplistic approach. The photons that are light and the fabric of space time which is darkness, appear very different at a glance, but, as past experiments and continuing developments in theoretical physics suggest, they may well be one and the same thing, simply expressed differently. Perhaps it is at that point, where light and darkness can no longer be distinguished, where good and evil can no longer be distinguished, that point would be where this entire discussion is rendered moot, perhaps that is where we find God.
