A massive swarm of locusts plagued Mecca, Saudi Arabia, earlier this week, prompting authorities at Islam’s holiest site to launch a cleaning operation to remove them. Videos posted to social media showed the insects swarming around cleaners and worshipers in the city’s Grand Mosque, where millions of Muslim pilgrims congregate every year.




Mecca’s Grand Mosque plagued by swarm of locusts

Swarms of locusts have been descending on Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Mecca is the the birthplace of Muhammad and is regarded as the holiest city in the religion of Islam. Unlike other insects locust are halal and can be consumed by Muslims, bon appétit.

So they just swept them up?


Lame, I would have started a campaign that would have converted some of the locust to islam. Then radicalized them, eventually having them commit suicide bombings against the other locusts. Then again, this would take years. Probably best to have just swept them up.

I thought locusts were grasshoppers, that picture looks like a cricket.


Maybe it is an African American locust?

That was a close-up from one of the videos. Didn't look like the locusts I have seen in the US. Looks more like a fat cricket

It is Locust of Borg.
They will be assimilated.
Resistance is futile.

According to this prophecyinthenews.com...
it is not just locusts.

Saudi Arabia, in particular, the location of Islam’s holiest sites, Mecca, has recently been inundated by swarms of locusts, crickets and cockroaches.

I once had a few moths fly into my house one evening because I had the porch light on.

So I know what they're going through.

There must have been at least 2 moths. So it was a swarm.

Locust swarms are a fairly common thing in the Middle East, and Africa.

Israel had some swarms not all that long ago, if memory serves.

Not all that long ago, a big swarm could threaten entire crops and starvation was a very real threat.

Even though North America rarely has swarms of this nature, apparently when they happen, they don't mess around.

Apparently, it's been almost a century since an outbreak.

12 trillion locusts! Let's hope it is at least another century before that happens again.
