Another Merry Christmas

in Indonesian some 2000 people have been killed (including three Christian teenage girls who were beheaded for not wearing veils) in Muslim violence.

Why may I ask, since Indonesia is a recipiant of US aid, US tourist money and more doesn't the Church try to boycott Indonesia? They have all kinds of meetings about how horrible life is in Israel, who is just trying to defend itself and yet from Christians nothing is ever heard about this atrocity.

Read it for yourself. Its crazy. I wonder if this suicide bombing would be 'understandable' to the Christian left.


PALU, Indonesia (Reuters) - 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.

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

Bystanders carried bleeding shoppers from the makeshift market to a road, putting them in passing cars to be taken to hospital. One man screamed as he held up his bloodied arms.

"Suddenly there was a flash of light and a really loud bang. We were all thrown to the ground," one wounded pork seller told El Shinta radio from his hospital bed.

"I saw many buyers who had lost their legs. We just tried to save ourselves by fleeing the market."

"It was a homemade bomb. It was full of nails," said police spokesman Major-General Paulus Purwoko in Jakarta.

Central Sulawesi police said seven of the 60 people reported injured had died, and that security was being tightened, especially in places of worship.

The official Antara news agency said another bomb had been found and defused near the market in Palu, 1,650 km (1,030 miles) northeast of Jakarta.

"This was done by outside perpetrators to create an unstable situation in Palu," Rusdi Masura, mayor of South Palu regency, told Metro television.

HISTORY OF VIOLENCE

Intercommunal violence has killed thousands since the downfall of longtime autocrat Suharto in 1998.

Fighting between Muslims and Christians in central Sulawesi from 1998-2001 killed 2,000 people, mainly around the Muslim town of Poso. Since then, violence has been sporadic.

Last October three teenage Christian girls were beheaded near Poso. Bomb attacks last May in the Christian town of Tentena killed 22 people.

I was moved to pray in earnest when I read that same news report. I am part of my church's intercessory prayer team and I took to them the news article that the Saudi royals recently had provided 5k scholarships to send their wahabiism-trained zealots to our American colleges and would have sent more but the officials here could barely handle the documentation for the influx of Islamic students from Saudi Arabia. That worried me for several obvious reasons, one of which was that the students of that age were the predominant profile of terrorist that flew our populated planes into our pentagon, the world trade center and tried to do much, much more. I took authority in prayer and am asking God to convert the bright, but brainwashed young muslims and send them home as Christian missionaries. How would their immams like them apples?

I have been getting supernatural dreams and visions a lot recently and the most recent one was a simple letter in black on a bed of skinless, edible , moving flesh. The letter was the hebrew letter, Lamed. Do a google search on that and see what I found out. I thought God was just giving me crumbs for revelations with a simple letter until I began to study the letter in rabbincal and messianic websites. I had studied Hebrew for a few years back in the early 80's so I recognized the letter, but not its significance in size,placement, meanings, etc. I'll take a letter vision or revelation from God anytime!

I had thought it might have been from a picture from my mother's gravestone - fashioned out of Jerusalem stone and with English and Hebrew inscriptions. No, she wasn't Jewish, but her stone reads: Mechaya
Bat Zion. She taught on the Tabernacle in the wilderness and how it was a prophetical depiction of worship and praise with its layout and fixtures. Our family are fierce supporters of Israel and my sister's kids all have Hebrew names. We have chosen to stand by Israel and God's ancient chosen people the Jews. I'm here to tell you are numbers are growing and I want my Jewish friends to know that the true Church is rising up and giving goyim voices to the active support of the Jewish people out of a great love.
