There are a couple of posters who seem to have read-in to my OP that I feel this is amusing because the people hit are muslims. That is NOT the case.
I think it is amusing in general, and I have stated such. I think that the situation would be ironic no matter the religion; Christian, Muslim, Jew
Others have said that people get struck by lightening all over the world. This is true. However, they are normally in the open and it affects one
person, or just a few in the immediate vicinity. This one hit 33 people, therefore, it is a bit out of the ordinary.
Then, to top it off, factor in the fact that the Imam is one of the dead and it was after a "special" prayer.
So, if you are of a religious mind, this seems rather interesting. It is interesting that such a large group of religious zealots was struck down by
lightening, including their leader, immediately upon exiting their place of worship. While there are a lot of people in the world and anything can
happen, this is odd no matter how you look at it.
And the irony is still amusing.
