Palestinian Press Agency reports that Dr. Syed Mohammad Ali has come out with his predictions for the coming year, based on his expertise in stargazing.
He says that Israel will be destroyed within ten years. He also predicts natural disasters will help the Taliban defeat American forces in Afghanistan and Pakistan. And Egypt will discover oil.
I am not sure exactly in which field he received his Ph.D., but he is enough of a recognized expert to have his views published in major Arabic media, so he must be really good.
