So why is Allah angry at Pakistan?  Maybe they don't spend enough money on nuclear weapons.

Looking past the altogether approporiate irony of your question, isn’t this precisely the point?  And isn’t it just exactly where a real and meaningful debate should begin?

Anyone who actually believes that this earthquake, or that hurricane, or the other plague/pestilence/drought, etc., may be counted a sign of God’s/Allah’s disapproval, His wrathful “weighing-in” on the side of righteousness in a pitched and never-ending battle between good and evil, should be required to say so and say so publicly. 

Equivocation is not acceptable; avoiding the question is not allowed.
