I don't know what is more profoundly sicker. The attempt to stop infidels from using the word allah, or the media's matter of fact approach to reporting such barbarity. "In the latest attack on early Saturday, unidentified attackers flung a home-made petrol bomb at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in a suburb
in Selangor state. The Malaysia two-storey bungalow sustained minor damage, church officials said."
Arsonists Muslims in Malaysia struck a fourth church on Saturday as the government tried to soothe tensions arising from a row over the use of the word "Allah" to refer to the Christian God.
Frankly, I have no idea why they would want to.
The unprecedented attacks risk dividing the mainly Muslim nation of 28 million people, which has significant religious minorities, and complicating Prime Minister Najib Razak's plan to win back support from the non-Muslims before the next elections by 2013.
The row, over a court ruling that allowed a Catholic newspaper to use Allah in its Malay-language editions, prompted Muslims to protest at mosques on Friday and sparked arson attacks on three churches that saw one Pentecostalist church gutted.
"We ask the government to make a strong statement to these wrongdoers so we can worship in peace on Sunday," Reverend Hermen Shastri, secretary-general to the Council of Churches Malaysia, told Reuters.
Malaysia is mainly Muslim and Malay but there are substantial ethnic Chinese and Indian minorities who mainly practice Christianity, Buddhism and Hinduism.
I received this note from a reader who lived in Malaysia:
I came from an Islamic country that just burned 3 churches, Malaysia. I can tell you, first hand, that Islam is a very violent religion. And I can also tell you that Muslims will use everything to spread their Islam to all the "Infidels", and when the Infidels refuse to convert to Islam, they will get angry and they will turn to violence. Just too bad that the Europeans (and the Americans) as well don't realize what perils they are facing. Don't wait till it is too late. When Europe and America turn into something like Malaysia, churches will be torn down or be converted into their Islamic mosques. Do yourselves and your offsprings a favor, resist Islam at all cost !

Maybe, if we never facing this situation by our own experience, we might still think positive. Its oke to be positive, but in my opinion, positive is positive, and negative is negative. And the negativism which occured because of fanatism people that is increasing day by day in the face of religion, specially in islam shouldn't be allowed. We have to stop it, however and whatever we will do. And for me (who has own experience as a member of one radicalist group in indonesia), i have to do more real action to fix this problem. Please joint me my friends..
