On November 1, 2012, Saudi sheikh Muhammad Al-Munajid discussed Hurricane Sandy on Egypt's Al-Nas TV. Sheikh Al-Munajid has previously made statements calling on Muslims to "kill" Mickey Mouse and Saudi Cleric Muhammad Al-Munajid Slams Beijing Olympics: Nothing Makes Satan Happier Than The "Bikini" Olympics.
The following are excerpts from his statements:
"The Water That Allah Sent Tore The Asphalt… This Is A Punishment"
"Dear brothers and sisters, the news about Hurricane Sandy is everywhere. The images coming from the U.S. are, indeed, horrible and terrifying. This hurricane brought with it fire that burned places, and water that drowned places, as we can see. Look how this road was torn apart. Look how the water that Allah sent tore the asphalt, ripped the road apart, and destroyed bridges. Bridges were destroyed!
"This is not a case of Allah putting people whom he loves to the test. This is a punishment in the eyes of the people upon whom it was inflicted. Most of them are infidels. There are some Muslims there, but most of them (are infidels), and so is the country. This is a punishment, as Allah said: '(The infidels) do not cease to be struck by calamity for what they have done.'"
"Allah Sent Upon Them A Hurricane Of Wind And Drowned Them For Their Heresy"
"Some people erroneously claim that this is an act of nature. God sent it! Allah sent upon them a hurricane of wind and drowned them for their heresy. These people have spread corruption upon the earth and tyranny upon the land, and killed millions of innocent people in Afghanistan and Iraq. They refused to provide weapons to the Syrian people, in order to increase their slaughter (by the regime). So what did Allah do to them? This is a lesson for the might criminals: Allah is mightier than you. Allah is mightier than them. Allah is capable of anything. Allah an destroy them. Allah can shake the ground under their feet. Some American newspapers estimated the damage at 35-45 million dollars. Allah has soldiers in the heavens and the earth. Storms, tempests, floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, volcanoes…This is wrath, the wrath of Allah. This is a sign, a sign."
