Misplaced Bag Caused Tragic Hajj Stampede in Mecca

A MUSLIM PILGRIM POINTS TO THE PORTRAITS OF HIS DAUGHTERS WHO WERE KILLED IN THE AL-JAMARAT HAJJ STAMPEDE. And I wonder if there will be any life insurance claims for all those who were killed. The Government of Saudi Arabia should be held responsible for the tragic deaths of these 345 tourists.
"This was fate destined by God,"
"Some of the pilgrims were undisciplined and hasty to finish the ritual as soon as possible."
-Maj. Gen. Mansour al-Turki, Interior Ministry spokesman of Saudi Arabia.

Even humans blame God for their foolishness and failures and errors, like some lunatic American Pastors said God sent Hurricane Katrina to wreck havoc in the Gulf Coast and kill scores of people in New Orleans?
So God has become a terrorist?

1990- 1,426 People were killed
2004- 244 People were killed
2005- ?
2006- 345 People have been killed.
In the stoning ritual, all pilgrims must pelt a series of three pillars called al-Jamarat, which represent the devil, to purge themselves of sin.

"So God has become a terrorist?" - Well if you read The Bible there are countless (ok so you could count them if you really wanted to) stories where God has destroyed thousands of people.

I mean even just Noah and the flood..

Thanks for the birthday nod. Not sure what to make of the tragedy though.

Thank God for beginning a new year.

We just pray for people to look beyond the dogma and karma of religious fallacies and live their best lives in accordance with their common knowledge of what is right and wrong.

Live and let me live.
That is all.
