Plague of Locusts Returns to Egypt

A return of the plague of locusts in southeast Egypt is on the radar of the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), following recent heavy rainfall.

In case anyone forgot his Bible, the ancient plague of locusts followed the plague of hail, a “coincidence” that helps those who try to find natural reasons for God’s actions.

The country’s Ministry of Agriculture last month sprayed pesticides on 27,000 acres of land to chase away locusts, but the pests far outnumber the enemy spray.

Egypt’s official Middle East News Agency (MENA) reported that huge swarms of locusts already have arrived in several areas, ready to feast on local crops. The numbers of locusts have increased, especially along the Red Sea coast between Egypt and Sudan.

The Egyptian Ahram website noted that eight years ago, Egypt suffered the most serious locust plague in recent history. More than one-third of the nation’s crops were damaged by the locusts, which gobble up anything that is green and make an horrendous noise.

The Muslim Brotherhood might want to note that after the hail and locusts, ancient Egypt was struck with the plague of darkness, which, figuratively speaking, already has distressed Egypt ever since the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood if not long before.

The next plague in line is the death of the first-born. And Passover is right around the corner.
