Indonesia: 1000 Mad Mohammedans Burn Down Two Churches over lack of "permits"

Spencer explains:

In practice, the permit system described in the article below functions rather like a modern-day Pact of Umar, making the construction of churches — or the use of existing buildings as churches — similarly subject to the whims of local Muslim communities. These churches were not approved, and thus, not “protected” under the dhimma pact. “North Sumatra, two Protestant churches burnt: ‘too many faithful and too many prayers’,” by Mathias Hariyadi for AsiaNews, January 23, via JW:

Pamela:

The recent uptick of Islamic “tolerance” of Christianity continues.  Isn’t Indonesia supposed to be one of those so-called “moderate” Islamic countries?

It is where Obama grew up Muslim. Why hasn’t he railed against this terror and violence? Whose side is he on? Indonesia: 1000 Muslims Burn  Two Churches/Atlas Shrugs

According to local Muslims, the two buildings did not have the legal permits as “churches.”

But the spokesman for pluralism insists it’s the Christians who need to be sensitive:

  1. It is where Obama grew up Muslim. Why hasn’t he railed against this terror and violence? Whose side is he on

    Because Barak Hussein Obama publicly stated, “I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”

  2. Being kind to the cruel will result in cruelty to the kind and
    tolerance for the intolerants will result in intolerance for the tolerants.
    restrictions should be put in place to stop the mindless islamization
    of the world; it won’t bring peace, only broken pieces!
    it is whether complete religious freedom for all… or restricted religion for all. one can’t continue the injustice of priviliges for islam only,
    it will lead to bloodshed, war and destruction.
