ISIS supporters took to social media to cheer the oncoming hurricane in Florida, telling Americans that Irma is simply the “reward of your crimes against Muslims.”
And you thought — like the Muslim apologists always say — Islam was a religion rooted in charity and helping the unfortunate. Can you say True Colors?
Just as ISIS supporters celebrated the destruction that Hurricane Harvey unleashed on Houston, pro-ISIS users on social media are engaging in similar rhetoric about Hurricane Irma and are eagerly awaiting the destruction that it is likely to cause. Weather models are predicting that Hurricane Irma, a fierce Category 5 hurricane that has already battered parts of the Caribbean, will make landfall in Florida on September 9, 2017. Several ISIS supporters suggested that the hurricane is divine retribution for U.S.-led airstrikes that target the Islamic State.
The pro-ISIS Facebook page The Monotheist Page shared the Media Studies Center page, which confirmed that Hurricane Irma will make landfall in the U.S. The caption reads: “May Allah drown the enemies of Islam and force them into their knees subdued, and humiliated, defeated, and scattered!”
Another post from the Media Studies Center shared by The Monotheist Page reads: “Made duaa [pray] tonight that Allah destroy them, and shake them, and restrain their might to heal the hearts of the Muslims bombed in Mosul, Raqqa, and elsewhere!”
And then there was this one:
On Instagram, Stranger_Ghuruba38 wrote: “Yallah Irma Yallah Ya Allah make their cities destroyed the same as Mosul, Raqqa, Al Bab, Fallujah, Tikrit, Baji, Ramadi and others Ya Allah punish them.”
