When it Rains it Pours in the Middle East

I've Been Thinking:
Last week the Ministry of Religion in Hamas-controlled Gaza called for a prayer to ask Allah, in the name of Mohammed, to send down rain.
This week, everyone's prayers were answered.
The rain came in floods.
In the Middle East there is a rainy season and there is an arid season. When there is not enough rain the ground turns very hard and when the rain finally does arrive the ground is not soft enough to absorb it. If the ground is not properly prepped during the dry season, disaster will strike during the rainy season. The result is run off and flash flooding, powerful currents of water strong enough to carry away homes and tractor trailers and the people inside them.
Now people are dying and drowning and many are homeless.
The higher authority heard the prayers.
