Tsunami a Punishment For Bad Women

From the Times Online via The Religion of, a sharia judge in Indonesia blames last year's tsunami on Muslim women for not wearing headscarves.

Thundering into a microphone at a gathering of wives, he made clear where he felt the fault lay: “The Holy Koran says that if women are good, then a country is good.”

A year after the disaster which many see as a divine punishment, emboldened Islamic hardliners are doing their best to eradicate sin — and women are their prime targets.
Something tells me that these people aren't going to be the easiest sort to negotiate with.
