Powerful earthquake levels villages in Iran

How come no one's claiming this is Allah's way of telling you Iranian officials to cut the shit?

We have a devestating hurricane that wipes out one of our cities and the Arab world rejoices and claims it's Allah's way of punishing America "the evil empire". Since hurricane Katrina there's been a devestating earthquake in Pakistan and now this in Iran. What's with this selective "signs from Allah" shit?

A powerful earthquake with a magnitude of at least 5.9 jolted southern Iran on Sunday, levelling at least seven villages and killing at least 10 people. Local authorities reported about 70 were wounded in the temblor, which was felt as far away as Oman and the United Arab Emirates.

Maybe the earthquake will be taken as a sign that Allah disaproves of Iran's nuclear ambitions. Or maybe punishment for the corruption of Islam the extremists are guilty of. Or maybe they'll somehow blame the US and Israel for being so evil that we shake the ground. Maybe they'll claim that Allah was trying to shake our military out of Iraq but missed. Either way, somehow, this is our fault. First sign of a religious fanatic is that they can never, ever, take responsiblity for their own actions. Everyone else is evil.
