Rebuking Lazer Brody, Sultan Knish (again)

This never gets old. Because today Biur Chametz has joined the ever growing collection of bloggers who think Lazer Brody and Sultan Knish were just plain wrong for saying that Hurricane Katrina was Gods way of punishing the president and the secretary of state for their roles in the Gaza pull back. Biur cites Shmuly Boteach who writes (in part):
But if it is true that God is punishing the US for its corruption and if it is true that natural disasters are a sign of divine displeasure, I have but one question. Where is the big hurricane that should have destroyed Riyadh, the capital of a country that has funded religious hatred and sponsor terrorism, for decades?
And though he's not a blogger, or Michael Jackson's personal rabbi, why not add Ecclesiastes to the mix? He says: As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother's womb,so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things."
