convert, or die

"Repent of your sins, America. I'll give you six weeks to turn it around, or Washington D.C. is gone in a puff of smoke."

If Osama Bin Laden said it, some of us might think, Typical Islamofascist, forcing conversion at gunpoint.

Others would think, hmm, sounds a lot like the Book of Jonah.
6 When the news reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. 7 Then he issued a proclamation in Nineveh:

"By the decree of the king and his nobles:

Do not let any man or beast, herd or flock, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink. 8 But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. 9 Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion turn from his fierce anger so that we will not perish."

10 When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he had compassion and did not bring upon them the destruction he had threatened.
At least it ended well.
