Semarang (AsiaNews) –The archbishop demands Christians be protected during the Christmas period.
Last night, vandals decapitated the statue of the Virgin Mary in a small grotto in Sendag Prawito, Tawangmangu, Semarang Archdiocese (Central Java). A cross was stolen and the aspersorium was badly damaged.
In recent years, Christmas has seen several attacks against Indonesia’s Christian communities. In 2000, a series of bombings killed 19 people during Christmas week. On 31 December 2005, seven people died in an attack against a market in a Christian section of Palu (Sulawesi).
In both cases, Jemaah Islamyah, which is linked to al Qaeda, was blamed.
The opera was canceled over fear of Islamic backlash in the –west.
And how can we ever forget the bloody, violent swath that Islam cut across the globe because ofÂ CARTOONS!
Islam and self-entitled supremacy go hand in hand. Always has, always will.
The Islamic cancer that has been allowed to flourish in the west must be eradicated, before it is to late.
