Three Girls Beheaded in Indonesia--Inspector Clouseau Is On the Case

A BBC article relates the following:

Three girls have been beheaded and another badly injured as they walked to a Christian school in Indonesia. They were walking through a cocoa plantation near the city of Poso in central Sulawesi province when they were attacked.

This is an area that has a long history of religious violence between Muslims and Christians.

A government-brokered truce has only partially succeeded in reducing the number of incidents in recent years.

Police say the heads were found some distance from the bodies.

It is unclear what was behind the attack, but the girls attended a private Christian school and one of the heads was left outside a church leading to speculation that it might have had a religious motive. (empahasis mine)

Uh....let's see. Christian girls walking to a Christian school in a region beset with conflict between Muslims and Christians. One of the girl's head's is left outside a Christian church....

So, although he is "unclear what was behind the attack," Inspector Clouseau "speculates" that it "might" have had a religious motive.

Whoever wrote this article obviously did not want to cast an negative aspersion against Muslims.....although, way down in the second half of the article (if you take the time to read that far) we learn that the area where the girls were killed:
was the scene of bitter fighting between Muslims and Christians in 2001 and 2002.
More than 1,000 people were killed before a government-brokered truce.

Although the violence has been subdued, it has never gone away completely.

A bomb in May in the nearby town of Tentena, which is predominantly Christian, killed 22 people and injured over 30.

The fighting four years ago drew Islamic militants from all over Indonesia and many have never gone home.

Analysts say the militants have targeted central Sulawesi and believe that it could be turned into the foundation stone of an Islamic state.

The analysts have warned that the violence could resurface at any time.

Wow! I am so impressed with these "analysts." Muslims blow up 22 Christians and they actually predict the possibility that "the violence could resurface at any time."

That should give those 22 dead Christians and the three beheaded Christian girls something to worry know that violence "might" be coming along any minute now....

The facts of the matter are clear: Back in 2000-2001 radical Muslims from outside the community stirred up conflict between local Muslims and Christians by attacking Christians and forcing them to defend themselves (against a large Muslim majority population and a government and police force that generally chooses to look the other way).

Christians are then attacked and murdered in "reprisals" for having defended themselves. Just to keep things on edge, every so often a bomb goes off in a Christian area or Christian children are found beheaded.

The message is clear: Christians, get out! Leave your homes and your community where you have lived for over 100 years. Turn your businesses over to your Muslim neighbors. Or you will die.

Until these outside Islamic agitators showed up Muslims and Christians had lived and worked side by side without any hostilities for over a century. The "conflict" is not the will of the local Muslim population but, caught in the middle, they are terrified of what might happen to them if they were to speak out against it.

And the news media, as this article so nicely illustrates, tries to present it as a "conflict between Muslims and Christians" as though some nice mediator could step in and get them to "kiss and make up."

Until we learn how to stand up to these radical Muslim thugs they will continue to terrorize Christians and fellow Muslims, continue to bomb and kill and behead innocent Christians and Muslims, until they get what they want: A world ruled by people like themselves.

We cannot let this happen. Christians and Muslims (and Hindus and Buddhists) around the world must unite to defend against this "theocracy of death" and those who support it.

And the media must begin telling the story straight out, plain and simple, and bury their misguided political correctness in a grave alongside the graves of those three beheaded Christian girls in Indonesia.
