From God's lips to a Kennedy's ears ... Hurricane Katrina was visited upon the inhabitants of Mississippi because their governor, Haley Barbour, "offended God" by helping President Bush oppose the Kyoto Protocol.While Kennedy claimed the ferocious storm was directed by God as punishment for the environmental sins of Republicans, Muhammad Yousef Al-Mlaifi, director of the Kuwaiti Ministry of Endowment's research center, proclaimed "The terrorist Katrina' is a 'soldier of Allah".

... the storm Katrina is the fifth equatorial storm to strike Florida this year... and that a large part of the U.S. is subject every year to many storms that extract [a price of] dead, and completely destroy property. I said, Allah be praised, until when will these successive catastrophes strike them? But before I went to sleep, I opened the Koran and began to read in Surat Al-R'ad ['The Thunder' chapter], and stopped at these words [of Allah]: 'The disaster will keep striking the unbelievers for what they have done, or it will strike areas close to their territory, until the promise of Allah comes to pass, for, verily, Allah will not fail in His promise.' [Koran 13:31]."One is left wondering how it is that an environmentalist ideologue and an Islamist would have such similar thought processes.
