Bumper Sticker Jihad in Indonesia

Islam is a religion of peace, and if you don't agree we will kill you.  For those who want to encourage a kinder Islam, telling Muslims Islam is an angry religion will elicit that negative reaction.  Even as it is true, Muslims hate to be reminded how tense Islam is, especially from the dirty kuffir.  Ironically, the bumper sticker was being distributed as a souvenir by the family of the ex-President of Indonesia, during a remembrance of his death.

I can only imagine the indignation Muslims would display if someone had the gall to hang fuzzy dice from the rear view mirror

Bumper Sticker Sparks New Clash at Indonesian Church

      Bogor. A bumper sticker prompted members of the hard-line Islamic Reform Movement to attack several members of the GKI Yasmin church on Sunday. 

The bumper sticker, on the back of a church member’s car, said, “We need a friendly Islam, not an angry Islam.” 

Scores of vociferous Muslims from the group known as the Islamic Reform Movement (Garis) terrorized members of the congregation who came to the church’s New Year’s Eve service in Bogor, GKI Yasmin spokesman Bona Sigalingging said. 

Garis chairman Majudien was infuriated by the sticker and began to run after the car. The incident led the congregation to disband and move the service to the home of one of the members. 

“What is the aim of that sticker being put there? That is a provocative action against us, the Muslims of Bogor,” Majudien said. 

Bona said that the sticker was a souvenir that was distributed by the family of the late former Indonesian President Abdurrahman Wahid during a commemoration of his death on Friday.

“All guests who came, including the chairman of the Constitutional Court, the deputy religious affairs minister and other VIPs also got the same souvenir, the same sticker,” he said.
