Beeb the Boob

How dangerously idiotic can one get?
Three Indonesian girls beheaded
By Tim Johnston BBC News, Jakarta

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.
Islamic state Central Sulawesi and Poso in particular was the scene of bitter fighting between Muslims and Christians in 2001 and 2002.
(Emphasis added by me!) Keep on "speculating", Beeb, and can't you please drop dead from one of your sactimonious rants when the IDF happens to hit one of those poor children that are used as human shields by Pal terrorists?

Can't you? I said "please" after all...

Please nore these comments from the Little Green Footballs blog regarding the Observer's headline of November 20th on the beheading of 2 innocent Christian schoolgirls by dare-we-say-it MUSLIMS in Indonesia:

The Observer’s headline is:

Machete killings fuel Indonesia’s religious hatred.

The “religious hatred” they’re talking about is all coming from one side—the Islamic jihad gangs who kidnap and decapitate helpless Christian schoolgirls.

For peaceful Christians many of them refugees from Poso, the existence of Ninja-clad attackers brings back memories of 2001 when hundreds of masked Muslim men stormed one Christian village after another, firing automatic weapons, tossing petrol bombs and home-made grenades into houses and ordering terrified residents to get out for good. They killed anyone who dared to resist.

‘The people of the world called the beheadings of these girls barbaric,’ says David, a lay preacher in the town. ‘Pope Benedict led prayers in Rome for the safety of Christians here, but few governments have expressed real concern. We are on the verge of another jihad.

‘Almost all the religiously motivated aggression this year has been directed against Christians: schoolgirls murdered as the army turns a blind eye. But the government would rather talk of gangsters, not jihadists, carrying out the attacks. I want to know why most of the weapons carried by these militants are army issue.’

To Christians such as David it is ‘unthinkable’ that the military could have failed to end the attacks. Similar failures can be discerned in other Indonesian hotspots, including Maluku, and the west Kalimantan town of Sambas, where Christians have also been targeted. Claims of army complicity are rife among Christians, who regularly accuse the military of turning a blind eye to the Islamic militia in the area and the smuggling of weapons from the mainland.

Others point to a lack of prosecutions for attacks on Christians and talk darkly of militant training camps in remote valleys, as if to say the next mass slaughter is just around the corner.

Great comment, Allen! LGF is the mother ot all blogs indeed!

If I really hate the German media I try to remember the British and suddenly feel better. The murderous scum would never have gotten that far without the complicity of politicians and the media who are even too afraid to call a spade a spade and a jihadist a jihadist. "Machete killings" indeed! Had the perpetrators been anybody else the headline wouldn't have spared us a single gory detail.
