There they go again: under Sharia law, dhimmis are forbidden to “display openly” alcoholic beverages. These mujahedin no doubt thought they were meting out just punishment: but this is a hint of what is in store for non-Muslims in the Sharia states that radical Muslims are striving to establish.

Muslim militants in Indonesia’s capital vandalized a cafÃ© popular with expatriates because it was serving beer during the Islamic fasting month of Ramadan, police and one of the militants said today.
The Star Deli was closed when around 300 members of the Islamic Defenders Front arrived just before midnight Friday.
They smashed its windows, chairs and neon signs advertising beer, said Mary Gregory, the cafe’s owner.
Alawi Usman, a spokesman for the group, admitted vandalizing the establishment.
“We are against immorality,” he said. “We are doing this for the future of the country’s youth.”
No one was injured in the attack, which police did nothing to stop, Usman said. Police confirmed the raid occurred, but declined say why they did not try to prevent it.
