A somewhat unusual response to the Tsunami...

Have you noticed that in the unusually hard hit areas that the only buildings standing are Mosques? Unfortunately, I think this might give many people the wrong impression, that they were spared because of "God", when the real reason is that they were the only structures built utilizing modern construction techniques. What effects might this have in the further radicalization of Islam in Indonesia, your thoughts?

BTW I think this is a terrible tragedy, but also one that was almost completely unavoidable, the countries involved can only handle so many issues, events that occur once in one hundred years are outside of their capabilities...
