I didn't want to write this post. I have been pushing it off for days. Now I feel that I have no choice. It will make my wife and mother very happy to see the statistics, in any case.
Approximately 9000 people lost their homes in the great Gush Katif escapade.
There are approximately 6 million people in Israel.
The percentage of people who lost their homes due to the disengagement is 0.15%
Let's move over to the Tsunami. It hit 7 countries (populations found on CIA World Handbook)
Indonesia, population 241,973,879
Sri Lanka, population 20,064,776
Maldives, population 349,106
Myanmar, population unknown, but not that high
Somalia, population 8,591,629
Thailand, population 65,444,371
Yemen, population 20,727,063
Total population: 357,150,824
Total killed in tsunami: 144,970
Total refugees (people needing assistance from UN): 473600
People very affected: .17%
The destruction in the US was much worse per capita, as more then 1,000,000 homes were evacuated or 0.3% of the population. I was looking for some number in the US of 450,000 which would have been proportianate to te people in Israel who lost their homes, but unfortunately, it seems that even more have lost their homes in the US.
Nowhere in Jewish writings does it say that God is the God of Love, but it does call him the God of Vengeance in a number of places.
I am not going to say that these tragedies happened because of the disengagement, in fact another way to look at it would be that a small percentage of a number of countries are getting smacked. Or you can say that it was because of the disengagement, and since people decided to throw Jews out of their homes, God decided to throw goyim out of their homes.
Or we may be experiencing the supernatural fight of Gog and Magog.
Or this could be because Bush didn't sign the Kyoto treaty. Or maybe God is on the side of cindy and camp Casey.
My Final Assessment of the situation is that God is angry. They say that hell hath seen no wrath like a woman scorned. Step aside women and watch out hell, God has been scorned.
