LM has been deeply saddened by news of Christians in Indonesia feeling so embattled that they have to resort to literally begging the President of Indonesia to protect them from Muslim vigilante attacks.
While President Youdhoyono has already appealed for calm I fear this behaviour which mirrors similar attacks on minority Christians in Iraq and Pakistan might be sadly the tip of the iceberg.
Lets be clear Muslim abuse of minority Christians is following a similar pattern to the Christan West who increasingly are treating Muslim minorities with abuse, racism and attacks on our Mosques by the EDL.
However, what should distinguish Muslim extremists from Christian extremists is our faith specifically recognises and acknowledges Christians as people of the book and part of the Abrahmaic faiths so in other words there should be no toleration for any attack by any Muslim on any Christian period and the perpetrators dealt with harshly and swiftly before the situation continues to deteriorate.
