Worth mulling over……
In Medieval Europe, the Church declared cats to be Satan’s familiars, and they were massacred, often very cruelly, until there were almost no cats left in Europe. After clearing their lands of the harmless, beneficent cats, Europe was overrun by rats bearing plague.
In the 20th century Europe massacred the Jews, often very cruelly. After clearing their bloodsoaked lands of the productive, ethical, civilized, incommensurately contributing Jews, Europe became overrun with Muslims.
And in the long run these will prove more deadly and destructive than all of the plagues. Looks to me like divine justice.
