Muslims in Indonesia are outraged by a five-year sentence given a man accused of blasphemy. They wanted death, so they responded by burning three Christian churches. On Sunday (as shown in the graphic video below), three members of a minority Muslim sect were killed by a mob.
On Sunday, roughly 1,000 Muslims attacked members of a minority sect, Ahmadiyah, in Cikeusik village and killed three and injured six others. When the Obama Administration yielded to demands from Arab allies to support the concept of blasphemy prosecutions, many of us were horrified. This is the face of blasphemy prosecutions — little more than mob justice dressed up as legal process. Even when an absurdly long sentence is handed down, it is not enough for the mob.
