Education, Palestinian style

A Koranic scholar has published an analysis of the Koran and found the US will be destroyed by 2007 (ht: Horsefeathers)
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."
Ziad Silwadi didn't pay enough attention to his science studies when he was a child, particularly geography and earth science. Not that that neglect has been a trend in the Arab world for about a millennium while favoring religious studies and the sins of others.

But I'll tell you what's really shocking and frightening. It sounds like Silwadi is signed up for the Ward Churchill Fan Club e-mail newsletter.
