<hr><span style="color:#000000;background-color:#000000;">THREE Christian high school girls were beheaded as a Ramadan "trophy" by Indonesian militants who conceived the idea after a visit to Philippines jihadists, a court heard yesterday.<br><br>
The girls' severed heads were dumped in plastic bags in their village in Indonesia's strife-torn Central Sulawesi province, along with a handwritten note threatening more such attacks.<br><br>
The note read: "Wanted: 100 more Christian heads, teenaged or adult, male or female; blood shall be answered with blood, soul with soul, head with head."</span>

I don't either. Then again, I don't understand any type of religious hate, be it for 'trophy heads', governments forbidding same-sex marriage or random bombs on residential neighborhoods <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

Let's remember that this was done by extremists.

Absolutely.....however there seem to be more and more religious extremists these days.....(and I'm talking about ones who kill, torture, and cause death and target children for the sake of their religion or connection to a particular religion).<br><br>
I'm appalled at just how much religious persecution there is around the world. (and I'm not just implying Christian persecution here).<br><br>
Its truly astounding what people can do to each other.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I heard about this a year ago. I've often observed that many stories of the persecutions in Indonesia don't make it to the media in North America. I wonder why?

I found several articles on this dated Nov 9th 06 from Australia, but also found articles date Oct. 29 05.<br><br>
I'm thinking it is the same incident. Don't have enough time to research it further. Either way.....its just horrible.
