When rubbish theology backfires

So the volcanic ash cloud is heading towards Israel, and may force the closure of its airspace.

What, I wonder, is Rabbi Lazer Brody going to make of this? Several weeks ago, the learned rabbi - notorious for claiming that Hurricane Katrina was God's display of wrath following the Gaza withdrawal - asserted, pretty confidently, that the ash cloud that paralysed British airspace was God's punishment for the decision by the Advertising Standard Authority to ban an Israeli ad using an image of the Western Wall.

What, pray, Rabbi Brody, is Israel being punished for now?

(For more on this bizarre theology see Dov Bear here and here; the first comment on the second post is mine.)
