They are not attacking or doing anything else that's out of the ordinary for locusts.
Here is a massive locust occurrence from over hundred years ago:

I bet that many people went on and mentioned biblical stuff.
Truth is, nothing happened. The world is still going round and every now and then somewhere a locust swarm gets out of hand.

Somewhere there will be floods and tornadoes and waters receding. Just as they have done since the beginning of the world.

It's interesting, but it has nothing to do with the bible or god.

Many Asian and even african societies have to deal with plagues of locusts on a semi annual to seasonal basis.

Although, is Mecca a bastion of greenery?? Locusts usually end up where the food is, not at random desert towns.

Plague of locusts...pretty Biblical in reference.

Cockroaches?...I'll leave that interpretation up to others.

If there are lice, frogs and blood next I'll start worrying. But not too much because it's the mosque in SA...

Insects of a feather tend to swarm together.

That was gross, but I think it will pass. Still gave you a star! It was interesting! Imagine if this were happening in LA, Huston, Chicago...etc....

2 words - record rains.
These cycles lie dormant until the rains come releasing life by the multitude.

Nothing a bunch of chickens can't handle, the side effect is fresh eggs.

Locusts are kind of cool...as long as you're only an observer from afar. Some of the swarms can become ridiculously bad. They will eat every plant that they can and keep moving on....scary for the most part.

Locusts (NatGeo)

why they swarm


A study by the universities of Oxford, Cambridge and Sydney has found a build-up of serotonin in the nerves of the middle part of the locust's body controlling its legs and wings causes, within the space of a couple of hours, the solitary locust to turn into its swarming alter-ego.

The finding opens the possibility of stopping the process long before it happens, by blocking the action of serotonin.

This could be used to prevent the massive destruction of crops that occurs when locusts swarm – a threat affecting the livelihoods of one-tenth of the world's population. Globally there are about a dozen species of swarm-forming locust in a belt covering some 20 per cent of the world's landmass, from north Africa to China.

Last November, a locust swarm 3.7 miles long devastated agricultural production in parts of Australia, and in 2004 half the crops of Mauritania were lost as a result of similar locust swarms.

I always wondered just what the locusts the bible referred to I came to the conclusion that they are either a kind of grasshopper, or the cicadas or whatever that my grandma would call locusts..
but I looked a a few videos of these locusts and quite frankly...
they look like crickets to me.

so, still wondering.
cicadas or whatever, ya, the natives thought of them as a special delicacy just like john with his locust and honey.
but, from what I've seen, it seems that they are a type of grasshopper.
but, these do look more like crickets to me.. not either grasshoppers or cicadas

This is ordinary? nothing like this has happened in Saudi Arabia in 1400 or so years.



I bet that many people went on and mentioned biblical stuff. Truth is, nothing happened.

literally nothing? then just simply ordinary Cockroaches and locusts swarming the most holiest place for many believers in Islam? now if it were to happen to Vatican, that wouldn't be ordinary.

The Torah, although disallowing the use of most insects as food, permits the consumption of certain locusts; specifically, the red, the yellow, the spotted grey, and the white are considered permissible. In Islamic jurisprudence, eating locusts is considered halal.
I'm guessing the black ones along with the cuckarachas are not permitted for consumption.
I like rickeymouse's idea of bringing in the chickens.
Then Mecca will be covered in chicken pucky instead of creepy crawlies.

It seems obvious that Allah has sent a plague to Mecca

Perhaps this will give an opportunity to reflect on the practices of the observant in the holy land

Just an opinion
