An ISIS Suicide Bomber, Attempted Blowing Up Catholic Mass Service In Indonesia, But The Members Overpowered Him

This happened in Indonesia on Sunday during a parked Sunday mass service, a man armed with a bomb and an ax, who also was carrying unknown items marked with Islamic state (ISIS) insignia. He intended blowing up the church and himself but unfortunately, the bomb went into flame.

The man brought out his ax and swung at the church's 60-year-old priest, the priest happened to be injured in his hand slightly, Immediately the members swung into action and overpowered him, in the process the policemen came over and arrested him. 

Indonesia is home to more Muslims than any other country. Almost all of its roughly 250 million people are moderate Sunni Muslims, though there is a significant Christian minority. Compared with other large Muslim countries, militancy is relatively rare in Indonesia, though extremist groups have carried out minor attacks, including of churches.

The biggest attack in the country occurred in 2002 when terrorists bombed nightclubs on the island of Bali, killing 202, including 88 Australians. Since then, the government has sustained a massive crackdown on militant cells.

But the incident at the church in Medan, Indonesia's third-largest city, marks the second Islamic State-inspired attack in the country this year. The Islamic State, also known as ISIS, has called on supporters worldwide to carry out attacks at home, rather than join the militant group in Syria, Iraq and Libya, where it holds territory. On Jan. 14, four men attacked the business district of Indonesia's capital, Jakarta, with guns and explosives, killing four. The Islamic State asserted responsibility.

Security officials say that about 500 Indonesians have traveled to Syria and Iraq to join the Islamic State, according to Reuters. One in five of them is thought to have returned home.

These days, hatred for churches all over the world is increasing drastically, this I have come to realise, mostly by the so called religion of peace faithfuls. It is amazes me when people claim that God hates some set of people and love them most. Unfortunately you will still see people following and swearing allegiance to such religion. 

Matthew 24:9 KJV
"Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake."

John 16:2-4 KJV
"They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. [3] And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. [4] But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you."
