In Worldıs Largest Muslim Nation, Christians See the
Writing on the Wall
The Bali bombings and the August 5 bombing of the Marriott hotel in Jakarta highlight radical Islamıs tightening grip on Indonesia. Less visible, however, is the daily terror directed at the Christian minority in the worldıs largest Muslim nation. As next yearıs first direct elections of president and vice-president approaches, Christians worry that this underreported violence will only escalate. This country of 234 million people has an 88 percent Muslim population, and continues to be a hostile environment for the 7 percent who are Christian, or for the smaller numbers of with Hindus, Buddhists and others.
