The family that slays together, stays together.
When was the last time you heard about a family of Christians committing mass murder at three mosques? Of course, you have never heard of such a thing. Yet numerous analysts in the West will continue to insist that “every religion has its extremists.”
There is no equivalent in the Bible to this verse: “Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties, for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of Allah, so they kill and are killed.” (Qur’an 9:111)
“Deadly church bombings carried out by members of one family, Indonesia official says,” by Amy Lieu and Katherine Lam, Fox News, May 13, 2018:
Suicide bombers targeted three christian churches.
Six suicide bombers from one family — including children and teens — rode in on motorcycles and attacked three churches in Indonesia during Sunday Mass, killing at least 11 people and wounding dozens more, police and media reports said.
The family accused of carrying out one of the worst attacks against Indonesia’s Christian minority had been in Syria, where ISIS had controlled a large territory in the area until recently, Indonesia’s national police chief Tito Karnavian said. The father, two sons ages 18 and 16, and the mother with two children ages 12 and 9 all took part in the deadly church bombings.
All three attacks targeting Sunday Mass congregations occurred in Surabaya, a city of around 2.8 million people in a country that holds the world’s largest Muslim majority, Reuters reported. More than 40 people were injured in the blasts.
The first attack that killed four people, including one or more bombers, occurred at the Santa Maria Roman Catholic Church, police told reporters at the scene. Two police officers were among more than 40 wounded, they said. The father of the family accused of carrying out the suicide bombing had detonated a car bomb during his attack.
The incident was followed by a second explosion at the Christian Church of Diponegoro that killed two people. In a third attack, at Pantekosta Church, two more died, police said.
A witness described the woman with two children, saying she was carrying two bags at the Diponegoro church.
“At first officers blocked them in front of the churchyard, but the woman ignored them and forced her way inside. Suddenly (the bomb) exploded,” said a civilian guard named Antonius.
Shattered glass and chunks of concrete littered the entrance of the Santa Maria Church, which was sealed off by heavily armed police. Rescue personnel treated victims on a nearby field while officers inspected wrecked motorcycles in the parking lot that were burned in the explosion.
A street merchant outside the church said she was blown back several yards by the powerful blast. She said she saw two men riding on a motorbike, which Karnivan said the two teenage boys had used in their attack.
“I saw two men riding a motorbike forced their way into the churchyard. One was wearing black pants and one with a backpack,” said Samsia, who uses a single name. “Soon after that the explosion happened.”…
