Muslims Assault U.S. Embassy in Indonesia

So, finally a US embassy has been attacked (link).

A quote:

A protest organizer said the West, and particularly the United States, is attacking Islam.

"They want to destroy Islam through the issue of terrorism ... and all those things are engineered by the United States," said Maksuni, who only uses one name.

"We are fighting America fiercely this time," he said. "And we also are fighting Denmark."

Actually fundamentalists are destroying Islam through terrorism. And those who refuse to see that are helping them.


Christians also have become targets. Pakistani Muslims protesting in the southern city of Sukkur ransacked and burned a church Sunday after hearing accusations that a Christian man had burned pages of the Quran, Islam's holy book.

I refer readers to an earlier post from this blog (link) that shows how these charges in Pakistan are usually lies.

And there was the incident in Nigeria:

That incident came a day after Muslims protesting in the Nigerian city of Maiduguri attacked Christians and burned 15 churches in a three-hour rampage that killed at least 15 people. Some 30 other people have died during protests over the cartoons that erupted about three weeks ago.

It is getting harder for the world to see any face for Islam besides hatred, fear and rage.

I pray for all Christians in the way of this tide of hatred. May God protect His One Body and comfort those who suffer.
