Koran Scholar: U.S. Destroyed in 2007

Koran scholar: US will cease to exist in 2007 (Jerusalem Post, Mar. 29)

A thorough analysis of the Koran reveals that the US will cease to exist in the year 2007, according to research published by Palestinian scholar Ziad Silwadi. The study, which has caught the attention of millions of Muslims worldwide, is based on in-depth interpretations of various verses in the Koran. It predicts that the US will be hit by a tsunami larger than that which recently struck southeast Asia. “The tsunami waves are a minor rehearsal in comparison with what awaits the US in 2007,” the researcher concluded in his study. “The Holy Koran warns against the Omnipotent Allah’s force. A great sin will cause a huge flood in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.”

Silwadi, who is from the village of Silwad near Ramallah — the home of Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal — is not a world-renowned scholar. He said he decided to publish the findings of his research “out of a sense of responsibility because what is about to happen is extremely shocking and frightening.”

Indeed. The up side, though, is we no longer need to worry about running out of petroleum.

    Yeah, no kidding.

    What happens when they’re wrong? Will the Muslim population of the world see the Koran as invalidated? Unfortunately not.

    Well, the Islamic Fundamentalists aren’t going to waste energy/resources on America now that Allah is going to finish us off. So I figure we are safe for the next two or three years.

    But considering the news about possible attacks reported by Deutsche Welle this week, Germany should be afraid….VERY afraid.

    Yeah, when that “Bible Code” book was debunked, I realized the Bible was invalidated. No predictions of who’ll win the Preakness in 2013 … no winning lottery numbers … just a bunch of crap about “doing unto others what you would have them do unto you” and similar ethical gibberish.
