Shorter Ovadya Yosef: God drowned thousands of little children because he hates the Labor party, with the black people getting the brunt of it because they don't study Torah.
Ugh. Ick. Yuck.
What's going to happen to the white people who don't study Torah? Or the yellow people? Or the Jews who don't study Torah? Ovadya Yosef doesn't say. I suppose he was distracted by the thought of all those black bodies piled up like cordwood.
And naturally, Akiva has a bible code to prove it all, not realizing, of course, that the bible codes are bogus, and possibly heretical.
Personally, I hold that Katrinia was Allah's revenge for our giving Iraq "freedom." Run that through your computer Akiva and see what it spits out. While you're at it, check for predictions that Bush would divert 50 firefighters in the middle of an emergancy to serve as photo backdrop or that Michael "you're doing a heck of a job" Brown would wait until after the hurricane hit to request 1000 DHS workers. though he knew it would take them two days to get to NOLA? See anything?
No, no, look over there! Aaron Broussard! The Mayor of New Orleans!! Governor Blanco! Them! Them! Blame them!
