Based on the crime of the Catholics executed in Indonesia - can we expect death sentences on the New York Times, BBC, Guardian and the rest of the Jihad loving media in their culpability to incite Muslims to riot?
PALU, Indonesia (BP)--Three Catholics accused of masterminding a 2000 riot between Muslims and Christians in Indonesia were executed by firing squad at an undisclosed location in the island nation’s Central Sulawesi province Sept. 22, the Jakarta Post reported.
[...]Indonesia’s former president, Abdurrahman Wahid, called for a stay of execution the day before the death sentences were carried out, the newspaper reported.
The men, called “Christian militants” by the paper, were the only individuals executed in a long-term conflict that ran from 1998 to 2002 between Muslims and Christians in the volatile Poso area of the Sulawesi province. Government sources previously cited the number of Muslim dead in the 2000 riot the men allegedly caused at near 1,000, but AsiaNews and the Jakarta Post put the number between 70 and 200.
In addition to claiming that Tibo, da Silva and Riwu did not organize the violence against Muslims, advocates for the men protested the fact that few Muslims were charged with any offenses during the fighting that took place between the two groups from '98-'02. More than 10,000 Christians in Indonesia died at the hands of Muslims during the conflict, according to International Christian Concern, a Christian human rights organization based in Washington, D.C.
Jeremy Sewell, a policy analyst with ICC, said “justice had once again been denied to Christians in Indonesia.” He said the Catholics had been executed to placate Muslim anger over the death sentences handed down to three members of the al Qaeda-linked Jemaah Islamiyah who were involved in a terrorist bombing in Bali in October 2002.
