Islamic Jihad in Indonesia

Atlas Shrugs blogged The price for being a Christian.... in Indonesia...and soon to be Malaysia (reported in the local daily news yesterday and today.) Death for abandoning (lapsing) Muslims and for Christians who preach in Malay.

Indonesia. An Islamic democracy. Is Islam compatible with democracy? These pictures were forwarded to me from a friend who knows a Christian in Indonesia......I cannot reveal too much or I will jeopardize the lives of those that smuggled these pics out. I am running them beneath the fold as they are too graphic to run on the main page. I am running them so the world will know and see that Indonesians are NOT the friend of anyone who is not Muslim.

Michelle Maulkin blogged The AP tries to play down the jihadist rage in Indonesia:

Indonesia is the fourth most populous nation and has more Muslims than any other in the world, with some 190 million mostly moderate believers.
Yeah, right, no worries. There are only 19 million of them who support violent jihad. Remember?
Around one in 10 Indonesian Muslims support jihad and justify bomb attacks on Indonesia's tourist island of Bali as defending the faith...
Islam must be a pretty sick "faith" if people bomb people and behead people to "defend it". That sounds to my like something that supporters of Evil (Satan) would do.
..."Jihad that has been understood partially and practiced with violence is justified by around one in 10 Indonesian Muslims," the Indonesian Survey Institute said in a statement.

"They approved the bombings conducted ... in Bali with the excuse of defending Islam," it added, saying the percentage of such support "is very significant."

blogged Indonesian radicals are calling for the assassination of President Bush. The "Religion of Peace" promotes its "values" once again!

I was quoting what Pamela said, but based on the pictures she showed, there certainly are a number of people there making life difficult for Christians, and Muslims do not seem to be coming to their aid
