It’s mighty considerate of the Muslim Malaysian government to condemn the savage bombings of churches in Nigeria on Christmas day that killed scores. Of course, this mealy-mouth condemnation conveniently ignores the fact that it was yet another case of Islamic terrorists, inspired by Islamic teachings, slaughtering non Muslims. From “Malaysian condemns Nigerian church bombings”, The Star, 28 December 2011:
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia is profoundly shocked and saddened at the bombing of two churches in Nigeria on Christmas Day, said Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman.
He said Malaysia remained consistent with its firm stand against terrorism in all forms and manifestations, especially involving civilians, irrespective of location, including in Nigeria, Syria and Iraq.
“The taking of innocent lives and infliction of serious injuries constitute an unforgivable and inhuman act. The commission of such an act against a place of worship and during a mass congregation to mark a day of
religious significance is even more deplorable,” he said in a statement
He added that Malaysia extended its condolences
and sympathies to the bereaved families and the victims of injuries,
It was reported that at least 40 people lost their lives in the two incidents. – Bernama
Who is innocent and who is not, Mr. Foreign Minister? If Christians in a church qualify as ‘innocent’ in your view, what about, say, Jews congregating in a synagogue? And speaking of Jews, do you condemn the attacks your friends in Hamas constantly make against civilians in Israel? It seems that you conveniently left that country’s name off of your list.
