Mendacity 101: Islam is a religion of peace

I suppose it’s the Israeli occupation of Indonesia that prompted three teenage Christian girls to be beheaded and a fourth seriously wounded in a savage attack on Saturday by “unidentified assailants” in the Indonesian province of Central Sulawesi.

I mean, what else would prompt the savage murder of these teenagers? Indonesia is the world’s most populous Muslim nation. The province was the scene of a bloody religious war in 2001-2002 that killed around 1000 people from both Christian and Muslim communities. At the time, beheadings, burnings and other atrocities were common.

Oh, wait, this might be a clue: the girls were among a group of students from a private Christian high school who were ambushed while walking through a cocoa plantation in Poso Kota subdistrict on their way to class, police Major Riky Naldo said.

The area is close to the provincial capital of Poso, about 1000 kilometres northeast of Jakarta.

Naldo said the heads of the three dead victims were found several kilometres from their bodies.

In Jakarta, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono ordered the police to begin a hunt for the killers.

“In the holy month of Ramadan, we are again shocked by a sadistic crime in Poso that claimed the lives of three school students,” he told reporters at the airport as he prepared to fly to Sumatra island.

Prepare to continue to be shocked by Muslim sadists, Susilo.
