As major flooding and severe weather surged through Texas and Oklahoma over the last several days, Islamists and ISIS supporters took to Twitter to identify the natural disasters as acts of Allah.
The torrential rains and subsequent flooding are responsible for the deaths of at least 21 people in Texas and Oklahoma and another 14 in northern Mexico.
ISIS supporters linked the floods to Allah’s wrath for the Draw the Prophet cartoon contest, which took place in Dallas earlier this month. Two ISIS jihadists were shot and killed when they sought to carry out an attack against those attending the event.
This Islamist tweets Bismillah [“In the name of Allah”] and then highlights the deaths that have been caused by the flooding.
The person who tweeted the above does not seem concerned that the city hardest hit was Houston, which is over 230 miles south of Dallas. And certainly the state of Oklahoma and the country of Mexico had no connection to the contest.
If what this ISIS supporter writes is true, what meaning are Americans to draw from the natural disasters, such as earthquakes, that frequent the Middle East, sometimes killing thousands? Or what about the tsunami that struck the most populous Muslim country in the world, Indonesia, in 2004? The total dead from that disaster was over 230,000. What punishment was in play in these instances?
This follower appears to be mixing his Near Eastern and Middle Eastern religions:
Many may believe these folks’ understanding of the ways of Allah needs to be thought through a little more.
