This is in their holy site? Aren’t locusts normally associated with the JUDGMENT of God? Well, that’s awkward.
While the rest of us were ringing in the New Year, the most sacred site in Islam had a problem on its hands.
Locusts, and a lot of them.
We’ve got video of the little critters swarming everywhere. That’s quite a racket they make when they swarm, too.
A massive swarm of locusts plagued Mecca, Saudi Arabia, earlier this week, prompting authorities at Islam’s holiest site to launch a cleaning operation to remove them.
Videos posted to social media showed the insects swarming around cleaners and worshipers in the city’s Grand Mosque, where millions of Muslim pilgrims congregate every year.

‘Specialized teams’ are now hard at work trying to get rid of the pesky insects.
In fact, for a religion that puts even the tiniest of events squarely on the shoulders of their god as ‘his will’, a lot of things tend to go very wrong in their holy city.
One of the more memorable examples was a crane toppling at the Grand Mosque while it was filled with worshippers, killing more than 100, injuring hundreds more… on the anniversary of 9/11.
Another time, 700 were killed in a stampede — during a ceremony that was supposedly the ritual stoning of the devil.
Gee, with benefits like that, where do we sign up?
I don’t know about you, but I’m going to stick to something tried and true.
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
