'Pakistan quake: God's wrath for Afghan invasion'

'Pakistan quake: God's wrath for Afghan invasion'

Cashing on the devastation inflicted by the October 8 earthquake, Islamists in Pakistan have termed the temblor as ‘God's wrath’ on the country for the decision to desert Taliban and back the American ‘invasion’ of Afghanistan. Riaz Hussain Pirzada, a treasury member belonging to the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Q, but considered close to Islamist alliance Muthahida Majlis Amal (MMA), told the National Assembly yesterday that the quake was ‘god's wrath’ for Pakistan's support of the US campaign. God was also ‘angry’ with Pakistan because "we welcomed the holy month of Ramzan by rigging the last phase of the local government elections," Pirzada said. After the earthquake, the refrain of many of the Islamist parties is that it is the ‘punishment’ for the country's decision to withdraw backing for Taliban and al-Qaeda and support US ‘invasion’ of Afghanistan.

I thought it was because Allah was angry that you did not fast correctly or pray long enough or ...

It is still funny to read what the Muslim thinks about earthquakes and their 'cause.' Is this the 7th century or the 21st century? They believe this stuff honestly. How do you deal with such a mental capacity?

Here are statements from a Pakistani jihadi group

'Bush and Blair will lick your boots'


"An eloquent orator, Makki has the power to draw tears from his listeners. Last Friday [October 21] this correspondent attended his sermon.
Quoting numerous Koranic verses, Makki justified the earthquake as a punishment of Allah on the sinful. "

"Urging the rulers to reject the aid by the international community and secular NGOs, he said: 'Remember brothers, by accepting their aid, you will lose your honor. You will become their slaves. They will ask you to follow their evil agenda. The UN, the US, and the EU are not the friends of humanity. They are the worst enemies of the Muslims. You should seek help from Allah only.'"

'We can rise again. We can rule the world again. I give you a simple recipe. Donate money and sons for jihad and your glorious days will return. The entire world will be under your control. Bush and Blair will become your slaves and lick your boots.'

It may soothe you to know that these so-called Islamists are actually highly corrupt exploiters sitting in a rubber-stamp parliament whose sole function is to agree with the dictates of president General Pervez Musharraf. I am a Pakistani living in Pakistan, and as far as my observation goes, the vast majority of people I have met do not consider this to be more than a natural disaster. If this quake were meant to be a punishment, then it would have destroyed the parliament building in Islamabad with all these corrupt individuals buried alive.

However much we do to relieve the suffering of muslims in disaster areas, offer them aid for development, or even come to their help in Bosnia or Kosovo, it will not make the slightest bit of difference how the islamic world sees us. The aid, military help or whatever, in the view of the devout muslim does not come from us, it is simply the will of allah. If we sent forces to Bosnia and Kosovo, it is simply that allah wished it so. No thanks to the Infidel but thanks go to allah.

Pre-destination, as allah knows all and guides all, is rooted in islam, which makes its followers fatalist. It is the main cause of poverty of thought and development, that is characteristic of muslim nations not endowed with oil.
