US to End in 2007

Posted by Dan Draney on March 31, 2005

A careful reading of the Koran reveals that the US will be destroyed in 2007, a victim of the Mother of All Tsunami. This is according to Ziad Silwadi, an obscure, Palestinian scholar from a vilage near Ramallah, as reported in the Jerusalem Post (via Best of the Web Today and LGF).

“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.”

He’s evidently a scholar of American history, as well:

Silwadi said his study of the Koran showed that the US would perish mainly because of its great sins against mankind, including the Native Americans and blacks.

“As soon as the Europeans started arriving in the new world discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1492, they declared a war on the so-called Red Indians, the legitimate owners of the land,” he wrote. “Then they began enslaving and humiliating Africans after kidnapping them from their countries and bringing them to America. Millions of blacks were brought to the US and treated with unprecedented harshness. Those who became ill during the journey were thrown overboard to feed the fish.”

[…]

Explaining his theory about the approaching extinction of the US, the scholar went on to analyze many numbers and letters mentioned in the Koran. He said a careful reading and analysis of words appearing in the Opening and Yusuf suras show that the US will exist for only 231 years.

How did he reach that number? Silwadi said that by combing a number of suras hinting at US sins he reached the numbers 1776 (the year the US achieved independence) and 231. He added the two numbers and the result was 2007, the year when the US is expected to disappear.

Well, there is certainly no disputing that. Thankfully, the odds of this mega-tsunami reaching us here in The Great American Desert appear to be rather small. Those of you on the coasts may want to sell your homes now and begin the move inland.
