In a newly released video, Bible Codes expert Rabbi Matityahu Glazerson makes the case that Hurricane Matthew, which has already killed 339 people and is said to be the most powerful storm in 118 years, is a divine punishment to the US for interfering in Israel’s policies in Judea and Samaria.

The video opens with a reminder that, in 2005, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, who was then head of Israel’s right-wing Shas party, stated that Hurricane Katrina was the “direct result of support for the disengagement plan.”

Hurricane Katrina, one of the five deadliest hurricanes in US history, began just days after the disastrous expulsion of 8000 Jewish residents of the Gaza Strip. That expulsion is often referred to as the disengagement, when Israel disengaged from Gaza, an action that created a terror state in Hamas-controlled Gaza.

Rabbi Glazerson continued his introduction to the table by highlighting the US State Department’s recent strong condemnation of Israel’s plan to build 300 housing units in the Biblical city of Shiloh in Samaria. …

You're wrong. I'd rather blame the methane-rich effluvia of our bovine friends than hear that our reward for granting a homeland to God's own punching bags is this sort of blatherskite.

Nice that they gave her this "tip" after they were served and filled their bellies (if this is REAL). The "make America great again" at the end makes me suspicious that this is a set up to poke at Trump and go viral. Worse, I suppose, would be that this is REAL. I dunno. The interwebs has jaded me.

I will say I don't like that people have the world an easy audience for such a trivial, local event. I mean, the note was left on a napkin in a diner in Greenville. The WWW has given an easy audience to too many people.

I knew people (back in the '90's) who felt it was their duty to leave tracts in lieu of money for waitresses because "..what's more kind than telling someone about Jesus?"

Yeah.

A couple of weeks ago, my elderly mom received Image in the mail.

The envelope was addressed to her with a scripture verse in the return address. Talk about annoying (and cowardly). Mom's not even Catholic. Sheesh.

I had to look up that Chick tract. What an evil pack of hate and lies.
================================

As for the scolding on the napkin, it reminds me of the old election-year joke:

The Republican says, "Whenever I go to a restaurant or ride in a cab, I leave a big tip and give a big smile and say, 'Vote Republican!'"

The Democrat responds, "I do something like that. I leave no tip and just a write a note on a napkin that says, 'Vote Republican.'"
