There have been three church bombings that have taken place in Surabaya Indonesia. A family of 6 suicide bombers attacked 3 different churches during today’s Sunday congregations. The family was comprised of a father, a mother, two teens and two children who all carried out the attacks. 13 people have been killed including the family and 40 have been injured. The first attack was at The Santa Maria Roman Catholic Church where two or more bombers killed 4 and wounded 40 including 2 police officers. The attack was followed by two more explosions. One at the Christian Church of Diponegoro and the other at Pantekosta Church killing 4 more people. The mother and her two daughters carried bombs and detonated themselves at Diponegoro. The father drove a car bomb into Pantekosta Church located in Surabaya Center. And the two sons, 16 and 18, rode motorcycles into Santa Maria. The attacks were all within about ten minutes at around 7:30 local time. Other attacks against more churches were foiled. Police reported that they have killed four members of JAD, an ISIS inspired group in Indonesia in Cianjur and West Java.
This was one of the worst attacks carried out against the Christian minority of Indonesia. This has been going on for decades and not just in Indonesia. Nigeria, Kenya, Egypt and Pakistan are notorious for hosting crimes against Christians in which hundreds of Christians have been ruthlessly murdered. But where is the international attention on that? Attacks like stabbings and shootings are carried out against the Jewish and Christian populations of Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Indonesia, but all the international media focus on are the so called “atrocities” committed by Israel and spread anti-Israel rhetoric.
Where are the people shouting “Hate crime! Hate crime!”? Oh I see, they are too busy sniffing out a couple of Hijab pulling incidents or writing a breaking news story about a guy who throws bacon on a mosque. So instead of a Syrian or Palestinian refugee migration could there be a Christian Exodus to a country like Australia? Australia is already taking in the South African farmers who are being murdered in South Africa and the left is shaming Australia for doing so.
Christians are being persecuted in Muslim majority countries. By persecution I don’t mean replacing the word Christmas with “Happy Holidays”, I mean arson and bombings against churches and Christians. These attacks are most notably carried out in the Levant. One hundred years ago the Levant (North Africa and the Middle East) used to be 20% Christian. This is not just due to the lower birth rate of Christians but to the mass murder of them. This attack in Indonesia is one of dozens in the world in this decade so far. In Egypt many Coptic churches have been attacked and in one specific incident at the Two Saints Church in Alexandria of January 2011, 23 Cops died and 97 were injured. The attacks in Egypt were orchestrated by the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization which Obama supported. Christian business have been burnt down and girls have been raped and kidnapped for not being veiled. Christian girls have had acid thrown at their faces, a common trend especially in the UK. In London, concrete bollards protect pedestrians against truck bombers. Stabbings, shootings and acid attacks occur almost every other day in London. But what is Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London doing? He is lecturing Londoners about cyber bullying and hate speech when his own people are being mowed down and gutted. He is absolutely useless. He can’t do a thing. His name should be Sadiq Can’t or you can replace the “a” with a “u”.
President Trump is being tough on terror with his travel ban that he enacted in January of 2017. He is also crushing the remnants of ISIS and pushing there lines back to a puny territory. The suicide bombers that attacked the churches in Indonesia today are allegedly affiliated with ISIS. With the decline of the Islamic States holdings, many are fleeing Iraq and Syria and are returning to their homelands. With their return comes attacks like these witnessed today. The war on land might be close to being over but the cultural war and war on our minds have just begun.
Since our President has defeated a group of Islamic militants, many ask “how do we defeat an ideology?”. The trick is that you don’t need to defeat it, you just don’t let it in to your country. A certain level of tolerance is acceptable but tolerance of the intolerant only destroys. Lebanon used to be the only majority Christian country in the Middle East. They had an open border policy, a fair and just government and were tolerant of everyone. They were a westernized country much like Israel is today. However unfortunately, because of Lebanon's open border policy and their tolerance of the intolerant, Lebanon fell and the civil war began in 1975. With the travel ban there has not been a single terrorist attack that was from a foreigner.
These attacks on Christianity are not criticisms or insults on pro-lifers, or traditionalists who work in a bakery, but far worse. They are mass murders on our brothers and sisters.
