Indonesia: Muslim mob Storms Sunday Service
Is this the usual tolerance that Muslims keep telling us about? I urge all Christians to look at the actions of Muslims like this, that are repeated across the world, and weigh them against the words of Muslims. Words that tell us that Islam is a peaceful tolerant religion. Words that are obviously a lie.
Indonesia: Muslim mob storms Sunday service and hangs banners declaring ban on churches, while police make no effort to intervene
JAKARTA, August 19 (Compass Direct News) – On Sunday (August 17) a Muslim mob stormed a church service in Cipayung, East Jakarta, forcing Christians to flee and then erecting banners in the street declaring a ban on “churches and religious services.”
As about 20 church members were celebrating the nation’s Independence Day at the service, the angry assailants arrived at the Pentecostal Church of Indonesia in Pondok Rangon village, Cipayung, at 9:30 a.m. shouting “Allahu Akbar!” or “God is greater!” Some in the mob were neighbors, but the majority were not local residents, according to pastor Chris Ambessa.
Church members tried to close the gate leading into the church compound, but the mob forced its way in, storming into the welcoming room of the church and overturning furniture.
