Nepal Earthquake Caused By Sexual Immorality And Fake Conversions – In Israel, Top Haredi Rabbi Says

Why did the massive earthquake strike Nepal and kill thousands of people? Rabbi Moshe Sternbuch, the head of the beit din (Orthodox rabbinic court) for the virulently anti-Zionist haredi Edah Haredit umbrella organization and Edah’s #2 rabbi over all, says he knows.
According to a report in Walla! News, Sternbuch said the earthquake happened because of incest and other sexual immorality taking place in Israel along with “fraudulent” conversions to Judaism performed by Israeli state Orthodox rabbis who are not strictly haredi.
“…Perhaps people are already beginning to fear that, God forbid, there could be an earthquake like that even here in Israel. Know that what God does in distant lands, its purpose is to inspire the people of Israel…,” Sternbuch said.
Sternbuch quotied a midrashic commentary on a verse in Psalms, "The country erupted…” - "for the crime of incest and male to male anal sex God is angry and the earth will shake and the mountains smoke.”
"According to our study, the earthquake should be seen as a sort of warning from Heaven to act to prevent the blasphemy caused by the proliferation of these transgressions. And indeed, God’s mercy spared us from the punishment [that should have been] on us, but in order not to forget the notion that there is a terrible punishment of earthquake for the iniquity of [what goes on in] this land [of Israel, God] sent us a warning from a distance to [cause us to] remember this penalty [for our sins] exists," Sternbuch said.
Sternbuch went on to say that therefore, Jews are "obligated to protest day and night against the tens of thousands of illegally [according to Sternbuch’s understanding of halakha, Orthodox Jewish law] converted [Israelis], be they in the military or not, by government rabbis [who are nothing more than] civil servants [and who not real rabbis], without [the converts fully] accepting the [613 Divine] commandments and who are therefore non-Jews under halakha. [These “fraudulent” conversions] cause the daughters of Israel to carry on with non-Jews just like the prohibition of sexual immorality with a donkey. [If we don’t stop this immorality,] God will take His Divine Presence away from us. But when God hears us protest [the immorality and the “fraudulent” conversions], then God’s fury will not come upon us."
