Following is an excerpt from an address delivered by Egyptian cleric Sheik Abdallah Badr at a rally at Tahrir Square, which was posted on the Internet on November 9, 2012.
Abdallah Badr: All of you can see what is happening today to America. Our wanton TV channels and corrupt newspapers portray what is happening in America as if it were a natural phenomenon. But I say loud and clear that the wind inflicted upon America, [Hurricane] Sandy, is one of the soldiers of Allah.
Crowd: Allah Akbar.
