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. In Egypt, one radical cleric described the hurri

"Amazing. First of all, the Muhammad film was created by a pro-Palestinian, Egypt born Muslim and not 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 places on the face of the earth are — Islamic. Muslims pray five times a day. One of the sentences in those prayers are that Jews and Christians should become “widows and orphans”. Strangely the real widows and orphans around the world are mostly Muslim."

I know that Imams are not the only ones to cast aspersions on others for natural disasters, but the imam above is a Salafi, which you can tell by his bruises on his forehead, which he gets by banging his head on the ground to show he's extra pious in his prayers. This self-inflicted bruises could explain why his imam thinks this.

And so many at Care2 try to make Christians out as vindictive. Hamad Headbanger could give lessons.

Disgusting! You note that this is the kind of thing the right wing evangelical twits say to prove that their vengeful god is punishing tolerance for gay people and Care2 and the other msm make that headlines. Wonder why this kind of hate from Muslim leaders doesn't get any attention? Such hypocrisy!

Thanks for posting this.

No one seems to have noticed that that silly movie about Mohammed is never criticised by Islamists for lying about Mohammed, just portraying him. What the film said about him was out of Islam's own texts, so if they didn't like that they'd have to burn their own scriptures.

BTW note this loon's forehead. See the big bruise? That's the sign of a Muslim fanatic. They work hard to pound their foreheads on the ground to show how devout they are in their prayers. However, it seems to damage their centres of reason in their frontal lobes, otherwise they would be more rational and reasonable.

Ray, do you get the news at all? How could we "not take notice" of a huge natural disaster?

Regarding this article, I wonder what heinous act humanity did to have islam inflicted upon us?

I'm so tired of "religious" people using their religion for these purposes. The Christians do it too, God is punishing because the Don't Ask Don't Tell was repealled, or prayer was removed from school. This is no different and people need to keep their religion to themselves and stay on the "true" reason we are having so many SuperStorms, not in just the USA but around the world. Climate!

Until we get away from these fossil fuels and move towards more greener energy sources then we will continue to have these storms or worse. There is no God micro managing individual Nations, people in individual issues or the political thought of the day. But there is a natural law that a Creator put in place, call that Creator what you will, and when the natural law is out of balance you will get climate changes. Simple as that. We need to learn to live in harmony with all our brothers and sisters, be they human, animal, waters, air, whatever.

This type of statement does a diservice to all of mankind and does not tackle the real problem that we have facing all of us around the world, a climate that is changing due to pollution.

Note that Ray is a friend of Wolf, I think that that says it all.

Dandelion, I do agree with you but the difference between the Christians making such a stupid statement is that we are only talking about a couple of thousand people and everyone else does not take them seriously. With Muslims millions take the comment(s) seriously and will riot, taking action against anyone that disagrees with them.

Considering myself a Christian and having the beliefs that I do I find it kind of offensive that anyone would knock what my beliefs are. I care not if someone does not believe in God or anything for that matter and I respect their beliefs or lack of... therefore I don't make accusations like I have seen here and other places about people not believing or calling them names because they don't believe! When we have to do that where does it place us on the scale of being a human being with compassion and respect of another's beliefs that I have seen some accuse Christians of NOT having!? I see it as kind of hypocritical! Rather than putting a name to comments of some people one does not agree with or thinks some are guilty of would it not be better to say "Some people who claim to be a certain Religion!?" To call out Christians by name is a pretty vague/general statement and what one might consider extreme right wing another may not! I would like to see everyone having a little more understanding and respect for their fellow human being in describing of them what THEY feel. One does not and will not ever find me calling a Jew any other name than a Jew nor will they ever see me say anything against what they believe in their religion even though it may not be what I believe!! The only so called Religion I will say anything against that we all know is NOT a Religion is Islam. I do not like to hurt people's feelings by saying something that can or would offend them and when I do if I do I feel very badly myself! I only ask the same in return!

The ravings of impotent buffons with an equally impotent 'god'.

Captain Caveman here seems to be oblivious to the abysmal conditions the majority of Muslims are living in around the world. Those bruises on his forehead? A result of getting skull-f&*%!@ by Muhammad the Molestor five times a day. And then there's the most obvious.....if his all-wanking 'Allah' is punishing the US, why did the useless bugger only flood New York/New Jersey/etc & kill only just over 50 people or so? Why didn't his all-impotent 'Allah' finish the job & wipe out the entire country AND the people in it instead of doing a half-assed job & hitting only a couple of states? I'll tell you why.....because his 'Allah' is too busy killing Islamists around the world in every Islamic country on the earth - men, women AND children - and raising prices of chicken in their nations to starve his own people. His 'Allah' also knows the difference between an Egyptian and an American, something which these head-hammering hoohas seem to be incapable of discerning.

I sincerely hope that these inbred jackoffs keep hammering their noggins against the pavement/walls/great big stones/etc every opportunity they get. Dudes such as this who walk around in public with an obvious sign of their insanity literally bashed into their foreheads - Look, world! I'm giving myself a concussion in the name of Allah! - don't come across as very credible. It's be hysterical to get an entire group of these lunatics on CNN, with their matching self-inflicted holy head wounds, in HD.

I must also bring up the fact that I've also heard plenty of Jackoffs For Jesus publicly stating that this natural disaster is a punishment on the US for allowing gay marriage/promoting gay rights/etc. These comments are just as absurd as the stupidity coming from Islamists. Which leaves me wondering why Canada wasn't smashed over the head with holy retribution in the form of a massive natural disaster long ago. We were the first ones in North America to legalize gay marriage across the country, after all. If the Jackoffs For Jesus were correct in their condemnation, Canada should've been wiped off the face of the earth by their imaginary friend 'god'/'Jehovah'/'Jesus'/take your pick of fictitious being.

As for 'hurting somebody's feelings' by 'insulting' their religion, this is absurd. Firstly, religions are not people. Secondly, I would no more stay quiet about the retarded comments of the religious than I would stay quiet about the retarded comments politicians make. Don't want to have your comments or religion criticized? Keep them to yourself. If you belong to a group of religious cult members - whatever the cult may be - and identify with these buffoons, expect to be personally criticized for the ridiculous public judgements your buddies hand down on those not part of your cult. If you don't wish to be lumped together with these buffoons, you can very easily choose to leave your cult & cut all ties, association & identification to idiots such as these. If you want to live in a country where 'blasphemy' laws punish people for 'hurting your feelings', I suggest moving to Iran, Egypt, Afghanistan or Indonesia. There you'll have Islamists insulting you simply because you *are* Christian.

We all have a duty as ethical, moral, thinking human beings to mock, criticize & tear apart the sheer stupidity & audacity of any fool making comments such as these, no matter if they're Christians, Muslims, whatever. Calling out stupidity & cruelty for what it is, where ever it is, is very important. We cannot allow these things to occur & not be criticized if our societies are to progress & evolve.

Sandra...We are all different and we all have our own opinions. And I will also say NOBODY knows the plan of God..he works in mysterious ways..believe it or not! Just because one does not agree with something someone says or the way they think gives another the right to be rude and disrespectful!? Just wondering!

I would like to add that it might be more productive though to use tact in doing so....I honestly do not think that ever really hurt anyone.

Firstly, I find the entire concept of 'god' ludicrous. Secondly, I have seen & heard nothing but lunacy, evil & hypocrisy from those who subscribe to the notion of 'god'. They are just as ludicrous as those who are constantly going on about the 'rapture', 'apocalypse', 'jihad', 'heaven', 'hell' and yes, 'god's plan for us'. This is a sign of voluntary insanity.

Tact? You mean such as the 'tact' used by Muslims & Christians when condemning atheists, homosexuals, feminists, and others they claim their 'god' hates & will punish with an eternity in 'hellfire'? Is that the 'tact' you speak of? I want no part whatsoever of this hypocritical 'tact'.

'Tact' plays no useful part in ridding our societies of religious retards running rampant among us.

We've already seen the pseudo-Christian loons get up to blame Sandy on homosexuals, abortions, etc. Apparently, their god is SUCH a twit that he can't separate the good from the bad? Sounds just like Islam fundies to me!

There's no wonder that people are turning away from religion in record numbers...is there?

Sorry, thought this was about what muslim clerics say. Must be mistaken.
On that note, if flooding is a punishment from whatever deity (ridiculous!), perhaps a comparison between the Sandy death toll and that from the flooding in a muslim country such as, oh, Pakistan in 2010, might be instructive.

Sandra,
I fervently believe in G-d. I am also for gay rights and marriage equality, as is the church I attend. I'm an activist for social justice and women's rights, care about the environment, oppose the death penalty, and hate guns. I find none of that to be lunacy nor hypocrisy. Perhaps you can explain why you think so. All of that lines up with what Jesus taught though, so good luck with that.

Though I agree with you on multiple points in some of your comments, you sure do paint the world with one wide-a@@ brush. Pam does too I guess (from her comment here). Myself, I prefer to take people on their own terms, one at a time, instead of assuming all kinds of stuff about someone I don't know just based on religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin. But do what you like. If you want to judge, go ahead.

We have had our differences and probably still will at times but what you said here I agree with 100%! I am outta here if this is the kind of non Christian get-a-long with everyone theme!! Thanks for saying what I also feel and could not have said better!! Anyone wants to talk about ANGER and hatred....re-read what you have written! I won't waste my time anymore on someone who tries to restrict someone else's speech or beliefs by name calling and accusations and cutting down their belief in God just because they do not believe in anything or anyone and come out with nothing but pure disrespect and then call out the Muslims for their callous actions!? WOW!!! I will stay a Christian that tries very hard not to find this kind of repulsiveness for another and still try and respect them! God Bless You All!

This is the last time I'm even going to bother to responding to the 'persecuted Christians' or any other member of a religious cult whose feewings awe huwt.

I respect your right to believe whatever you want, no matter how ridiculous or far-fetched it might seem to me.
I do NOT respect your religion, or your desire to claim special treatment because of your religion.
I have no more respect for Christianity than I do for Islam.

As far as I'm aware, you do have the power to block specific people if you really don't like them or what they're saying. Why not take advantage of that technology rather than playing the persecuted?

There is no credible scientific or factually reliable evidence for god, gods or the supernatural. - Wake up folks, there is no god. Religion might have been a great thing 2,000 years ago but it is now 2012AD, not 2012BC. Education did not affect you?

As there here is no credible scientific or factually reliable evidence for god, gods or the supernatural why do you believe there is a mythical god in the sky? I would really like to know. Perhaps the misguided Muslim Clerics who consider a film is gods way of punishing America can answer this?

There are nuts in any religion, but Islam takes the prize in their delusional Jew and American hatred and invoking Allah whenever they want to blame somebody else for the problems that they had caused by their medieval evil sharia, and murderous supremacist ideology that Islam teaches, in addition to pedophilia, polygamy, dhimmitude (second class citizenship for non-Muslims) misogyny and murder for Allahu Akbar.

Islam itself is incompatible with US Constitution and with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and MUST reform or has no place in any society that respects liberty and human rights. Hopefully, tomorrow, we will get our BIG Muslim Brother out of the White house where he had been doing a number of US as a true believer in Marxism and Islam. Those two ideologies promise prosperity, equality and justice to their believers, but always deliver poverty, corruption and tyranny as history had demonstrated numerous times.

Obama would be a great spokesman for FEMA, if President Romney chooses to employ him, but he will be better off with his Muslim Brothers in Egypt or his Saudi king. He may even become a politician in those sharia run countries because3 he fits there better then in America ;-)! Barak Hussein Obama is a multimillionaire from his stories and thus he can do whatever he likes, as long as he is not in any position of power in America. Good riddance! IF not, US better brace for another 4 years of going down the drain ;-)!

"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. "

If they are so foolish as to think they are immune from the effects of climate change, well, they are in for one monstrous surprise. There is no area of the world safe from what is coming, including the area that spawned the burning of fossil fuels in the first place. Who they'll blame then, I don't know and I don't care. But what is coming will spare no square inch of this planet, including these loud-mouthed self-proclaimed "clerics".

ray,
could you show some proof?

proof you can read with comprehension, that is. or as you ask, "Education did not affect you?"

you write: "Perhaps the misguided Muslim Clerics who consider a film is gods way of punishing America can answer this?"
the film is not the punishment. the superstorm is the alleged punishment. clear as day you don't have a clue to what the article or even the headline of it, means. and you call the clerics misguided?
