Again: Indonesian Muslims Bomb Christain Market, Killing Seven
— Ace

I'm beginning to doubt their committment to Sparkle Motion The Religion of Peace (TM):

A bomb packed with nails exploded in a crowded Christian market selling pork ahead of New Year celebrations in eastern Indonesia on Saturday, killing at least seven people and wounding 53, police said.

The early morning blast in Palu, capital of volatile Central Sulawesi province, came after warnings of militant violence during the Christmas and New Year season in Indonesia. But it appeared to be linked to regional tensions, not international Islamic militancy.

Oh, well, that's a relief. It's just a local embrace of the Murder Cult, not an international one.

Indonesia is predominantly Muslim but its east has large pockets of Christians, to whom pork is not forbidden.

...

"This was probably extremists because they targeted a part of a market that was selling pork, which would seem to indicate sectarian violence between the religions. Or an attempt at least to spark sectarian violence," he said.

Great. Now they're killing over entrees.

3 "How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.

The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live…The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities…but the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa…and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.”

Got that. When a mugger hits you over the head, it isn't him using violence against you, it is "violence between you and him." When a woman gets raped, it isn't her getting raped, it is a rape "between her and the man." Hey, maybe she raped him! Or was thinking about raping him, while he was raping her. Reuters is just being scrupulously honest here, not jumping to any conclusions. Reuters is always scrupulous. Right up there with AP and AFP.
