Muslim clerics say Sandy is ‘God’s way of punishing America for anti-Muhammed film’


Amazing. First of all, the Muhammad film was created by a pro-Palestinian Egypt born Muslim and not by an American. But how do you reason with the unreasonable? How do you avoid to offend the permanently offended?
‘God’ must really dislike Muslims since the most miserable, war-ridden, accident prone tragic places on earth are — Islamic. Muslims pray five times a day. In one of those prayers they ask that Jews and Christians should become “widows and orphans”. Strangely the real widows and orphans around the world are mostly Muslim.

Muslim clerics say Sandy is ‘God’s way of punishing America for anti-Muhammed film’

Some anti-American Muslim clerics have cast the deadly Superstorm Sandy as divine punishment for ‘Innocence of Muslims,’ a film mocking the Prophet Muhammad or for other perceived ills of American society.

The remarks by some on the fringe brought a backlash from other Muslims who said it was wrong to relish the suff1ering of others.

In Egypt, one radical cleric described the hurricane as revenge from God for the crude, anti-Islam film made in the U.S. that sparked waves of protests in the Muslim world in September.

‘Some people wonder about the hurricane in America and its causes,’ Egyptian hardline cleric Wagdi Ghoneim tweeted twice this week in the aftermath of the storm.

‘In my opinion, it is revenge from God for the beloved prophet,’ he added, alluding to the film.

Some praised the post, but others condemned it.

‘God, shake the earth under their feet,’ read one comment, prompting the response: ‘We have brothers and friends in America – I don’t wish them any harm.’

Another Twitter response to Ghoneim compared Sandy to a divine wind sent to destroy a sinful nation and strike at the seat of the United Nations in New York.

‘We ask God to destroy the U.N. building for its injustice, corruption, tyranny … with Sandy.’

Wagdi Ghoneim said Hurricane Sandy, pictured here in a satellite image provided by NASA, was God's way pf punishing the U.S.

But this was followed by a stream of outrage.

‘This hashtag doesn’t represent Muslims but represents a terrorist. We all ask God to help and save Americans,’ read one post.

In Saudi Arabia, prominent cleric Salman al-Audah said the storm, which killed more than 140 people, was a wake-up call for Americans to convert to Islam.

Reactions to the hurricane in the kingdom prompted Grand Mufti Abdel Aziz Al Sheik to warn in an interview that rejoicing over plight of the suffering runs contrary to Islam, adding that Muslims were among the victims.

‘It is not legitimate and it is not proper,’ he told pan-Arab Al-Hayat daily on Thursday.

In Iran, prominent clerics often avoid drawing parallels between natural disasters and divine intervention because their own country has faced devastating earthquakes, such as one in 2003 that killed 26,000 when it hit the ancient city of Bam.

On Wednesday, the Iranian Red Crescent said aid workers were ready to fly to New York to help with recovery efforts, the semiofficial Fars news agency reported.

Mahmud Mozaffar, head of Red Crescent’s rescue operations, said the Iranian groups had ‘ample experience’ in dealing with natural catastrophes.

  1. I find it incredibly amusing that Muslims seem to be blind to the abysmal conditions which their own people are living in within their own Islamic countries. ‘Allah’ seems to not care about them very much.

    In addition, if their impotent ‘Allah’ was punishing the US – even though it wasn’t an American who made that pathetically produced film about Muhammad – why didn’t he wipe out the entire US? Seems that their ‘Allah’ can’t do anything right & is pretty weak if that’s the best he can do.

    Can’t wait to see what ‘Allah’ does to Egypt to punish them for the Egyptian who made the Muhammad film…..maybe we’ll all get lucky and ‘Allah’ will wipe out every mosque in the country.

  2. There are nuts in any religion, but Islam takes the prize in their delusional Jew hatred and invoking God whenever they want to blame somebody else for problems that they had caused by thsie medieval evil sharia and murderous supremacist ideology that Islam teaches
