Aussie Floods: 10 Dead, 90 Missing: Punishment From God, Says Pastor
A CHRISTIAN pastor has blamed Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd for the floods devastating Queensland.
That's because Mr Rudd "spoke against Israel" in December 2010, Daniel Nalliah from the Catch the Fire Ministries has written on his website.
"It is very interesting that Kevin Rudd is from Queensland. Is God trying to get our attention? I believe so," he said.
Mr Rudd, during a visit to Israel in December, called on the Jewish state to allow international inspectors into its nuclear facilities.
He also called for a halt to the construction of Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem and the West Bank.
Mr Nalliah said every time America went against Israel there was "disaster in the land."
He sees the Queensland floods as a parallel. In 2008, Mr Nalliah caused controversy when he said bushfires that killed hundreds of people in Victoria were a result of that state's decriminalisation of abortion.
Nalliah was recently seen building a corrugated iron caravel in his backyard, with a hills hoist for a mast and a tartan travel rug-sail borrowed from his mother, Beryl. Neighbours say the vessel is being filled with all 'kinds' of animals, including Nalliah's pet cat, two guinea pigs and a goat named Alan.
