Just Wondering...

If the tsunami was Allah's punishment on the visitors in south Asia for their sexual perversion, and the hurricanes that hit the Gulf Coast in recent months were "terrorists" for Allah sent as a wind of evil and torment sent by Allah to America, then what are Muslims saying about the earthquake in Kashmir over the weekend?

I don't want to belittle the suffering of the people of India and Pakistan who have been injured or lost loved ones in these horrific quakes. Far from it. My thoughts and prayers go out for them. Nations from all over the world are stepping up to help in the rescue effort, providing food and equipment and personnel. And I'm proud of our response.

This has just made me more than a little curious. When "acts of God" happen to their enemies, Islamic fanatics give Allah the praise of pouring his wrath onto the infidels. When an act of God kills tens of thousands of their own people, do they still praise Allah for chastising them? Do they wonder what it was that caused his anger?

As a Christian, I don't think that all of these natural disasters are judgements on groups of people. I can't help but think that God is trying to get our attention, trying to turn us back to the Bible. I'm just wondering what other faiths think about all of this.
