Israeli Paper Says Katrina God's Punishment.

I came across this on the Watching America international news service. The writer has supposedly repudiated his own article but the repudiation is rather thin and forced and is more an arguement that he was right in the first place than a retraction.

On August 14, citizens in the United States, like people around the world, heard about the issuing of an order for the forced evacuation of Jews from parts of Israel’s biblical land.
For six days they watched as thousands of weeping people were pulled and carried from their homes, forced to leave their gardens, parks, communities, schools, towns and synagogues, everything they had spent decades building; banned from ever returning again. Those scenes were soon followed by pictures of bulldozers and other earth-moving machinery pulverizing the just-vacated homes into heaps of dust.
While this was taking place, a small tropical depression was forming near the Bahamas in the Atlantic Ocean. Slowly, as the air began to revolve, the nonthreatening weather system began moving in the direction of Florida.
Yesterday, we in Israel watched as American officials, including President George W. Bush, ordered the mandatory evacuation of New Orleans and its surrounds. That small depression had turned into a frightening fiend. Now we are seeing on our television screens up to a million people being forced to leave their homes. People are weeping on camera, mourning that they are going to lose “everything we own; everything we have worked for.”
As today unfolds we are bracing to see wind and water pounding homes, whole communities, into the ground.
Is this some sort of bizarre coincidence? Not for those who believe in the God of the Bible and the immutability of His Word.
What America is about to experience is the lifting of God’s hand of protection; the implementation of His judgment on the nation most responsible for endangering the land and people of Israel.
The Bible talks about Him shaking His fist over bodies of water, and striking them.
While the “disengagement” plan was purportedly the brainchild of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, the United States of America has for more than a decade been the chief sponsor and propeller of a diplomatic process that has dangerously weakened Israel in the face of an overwhelming, growing threat to annihilate her.
In the context of the last 12 years of peace-process history, and not withstanding the desire of many on Israel’s left to go ahead with this process, the Sharon disengagement plan was something that was forced on Israel, primarily by the United States.
“It is a fact that Israel’s very existence is in grave danger, because of our nation’s sponsorship of 'land for peace' plans, which have led her to the brink of war,” writes US author William R. Koenig, in his 2004 book Eye to Eye– Facing the consequences of dividing Israel. (21st Century Press, Springfield MO, ISBN 0-9728899-9-X).
On the cover, a grim-faced President Bush is shown looking warily at a massive hurricane threatening his country.
“America is now experiencing the consequences (curses) of Middle East policies, which have been opposed to God’s Word and to the preservation of His covenant land.”

I am throughly sick and tired of religious fanatics, be they Islamic, Jewish or Christian claiming that GOD is punishing so and so because they didn't support the accusers' worldviews. it gets extremely tedious and in the long run such hate filled spewings are the antithesis of their respective religions, be it Islam or Christianity or Judaism.

"Knife in the back"...

Maybe they should stop paying for Israel now and put the money into the areas hit by Katrina?

Ummmm, the people of New Orleans are being punished because the Isralis were forced out of Gaza by their own government??!!

Wow, the author of that idea really knows how to spin, huh? That's just low....did they bother to help the people in NO, or even offer a prayer for them?

If I was God, this sort of thing would really make me mad!!
