President (not Obama) condemns attacks against Christians abroad.


"President Yudhoyono joins (late) his voice to those who condemned Sunday’s stabbing of Protestant pastor Afian Sihombing. Muslim organisations call for the arrest of fundamentalists who stain the soul of the nation.

This decision probably comes in response to criticism from civil society groups who highlighted how he was slow in reacting to the anti-Christian attack, compared to his government’s speedy and tough response to Rev Terry Jones’ plan to burn the Qur‘an.  Online many people voiced similar criticism. “Your move to react over the Qur’an burning issue was highly appreciated, but why don’t you show the same reaction over violence against the Ahmadis and the HBKP?” Burhanuddin Muhtadi wrote."

Meanwhile, no word has come from White House to condemn the assaults on Christians around the world.  Instead, US media keeps talking about bigotry against Muslims.
