Smart. Very smart.

Regular Atlas readers have been following the the murderous rampages in moderate Malaysia by Muslims and  their burning  and bombing of churches (stories here). Last week Muslims burned the fourth church in their latest insane seizure of Islamic supremism. Seems that the Philistine are banning normal humans from using the word “allah”. As if …..

After repeated church burning and bombings……… a response. Notice no bombs, no fire, no death. Just a psyop. Brilliant. Apsyop against the mindless ….. heh. Genius, I tell ya.

Pig heads found at Malaysian mosques

Malaysian police said severed pigs’ heads were found at two mosques on Wednesday, in the latest of a spate of attacks on places of worship that have escalated ethnic tensions.

The dumping of the heads of four pigs – considered unclean by Muslims – comes amid a row over the use of the word “Allah” by non-Muslims that has seen violence against 11 churches, a mosque and two Muslim prayer halls.

Malaysian police said severed pigs’ heads were found at two mosques on Wednesday, in the latest of a spate of attacks on places of worship that have escalated ethnic tensions.

The dumping of the heads of four pigs – considered unclean by Muslims – comes amid a row over the use of the word “Allah” by non-Muslims that has seen violence against 11 churches, a mosque and two Muslim prayer halls.

Police and religious leaders called for calm and said that saboteurs may be attempting to stir up ethnic conflict in Malaysia, a predominantly Muslim Malay nation that has large ethnic Chinese and Indian minorities.

“By looking at the modus operandi of the (pigs’ head) incidents… I think it is the same group that is involved in the previous attacks,” national police chief Musa Hassan told reporters.

“I think they are throwing money (to those carrying out the attacks) to cause such incidents,” he said, warning those responsible not to “play with fire” and undermine national security.

The places of worship have been pelted with Molotov cocktails, stones and paint in tensions triggered by a December 31 court ruling that overturned a ban on non-Muslims using the word “Allah” as a translation for “God”.

Nineteen people have so far been arrested for their roles in the attacks.

The government argues that the use of the disputed word by Christians, who make up nine per cent of the population, could cause confusion and encourage religious conversion, which is illegal for Malaysian Muslims.

Confuse Muslims?

Indonesia: 1000 Muslims Burn Down Two Churches

The recent uptick of Islamic “tolerance” of Christianity continues, and this time the hate has arisen in Indonesia. Isn’t Indonesia supposed to be one of those so-called “moderate” Islamic countries?

It is where Obama grew up Muslim. Why hasn’t he railed against this terror and violence? Whose side is he on?

I expect silence and “Islam and democracy are compatible” nonsense from the pro-jihad crowd around Obama, but Sarah Palin said this of Indonesia in September:

….keep our eye on Southeast Asia, where Indonesia has proved that Islam and democracy can co-exist. Indonesia has fought extremism inside its own border and is consolidating a multi-ethnic democracy that is home to hundreds of millions of Muslims. Those who say Islam and democracy are incompatible insult our friends in Indonesia.

Uh, sorry, Sarah. Whomever is advising you is doing you a huge disservice, and us along with you. We need leadership who understand the ……struggle. It is simply not so, and while you could get away with this Muslim Brotherhood narrative in the first flush of post 911 America, it is irresponsible now. Too many non-Muslims are dying and are persecuted on a daily basis. And the jihad is America is forcefully multiplying.

North Sumatra, two Protestant churches burnt: “too many faithful and too many prayers”
by Mathias Hariyadi
At least 1,000 people set fire to the Pentecostal community places of worship. According to local Muslims, the two buildings did not have the legal permits as “churches.” The Nahdlatul Ulama admits the violence of radical Islamists against Christians. In 2009 in Indonesia, 35 cases of violation of religious freedom, 28 against Christians.

Jakarta (AsiaNews) – A crowd of at least 1000 people burned down two Protestant churches last night in Sibuhuan (district of Padang Lawas, North Sumatra). The blaze was the culmination of tension between the faithful and the local Islamic community, tired of seeing ” too many faithful and too many prayers ” in a place not registered as a church.

The district chief of Padang Lawas, Basrah Lubis, said that “the attackers arrived in a flash. Their number was enormous, more or less a thousand. They were angry because the administration of the church had not responded to their demands: to change the use of buildings from ‘places of prayer’ to ‘neutral buildings’. “

Both burned churches – two adjoining buildings – belong to the Synod of the Protestant Batak Church (Huria Kristen Batak Protestant, Hkbp), and are Pentecostal churches, whose faithful belong predominantly to the ethnic Batak group. Even their liturgies, with dances and songs are in Batak language.

According to police, neither of the two buildings had a building permit and had to be considered “places of prayer” and not “churches”. In Indonesia, to build a church a special legal permit (Izin Mendirikan Bangunan, IMB) is necessary. The process to get the permit is almost always hard and the Islamic community has boycotted the emergence of new churches. This lack of legal permits has become the main source of Muslims violence against Christians.

According to local witnesses, the first skirmishes took place last Christmas, when a large group of Sibuhuan residents held a sit-in protest against the existence of two churches, which has “too many members and disturbs the neighbours.”

In fact, the services of the Pentecostal community are full of songs and musical instruments and it is possible that the religious holiday services were a nuisance to local members of another religion.

Conflicting with previous statements, the locals also argue against the community’s attempts to turn these “places of prayer” in “real churches”. “The legal basis for declaring a church is that the number of believers is at least 60 members. But this community has only 23 members”, claims Basrah Lubis.

The Hkbp community of Sibuhuan is in existence since 1982 and still can not get permission to convert buildings into real recognized churches. Lubis Basrah admits that non Christian local hinder recognition.

Now that the two buildings have been reduced to ashes, Hkbp communities have to travel to Sosa, 28 kilometres from Sibuhuan, where there are three permanent churches.
