Muslims behead Christian girls in Indonesia

Indonesia is the world's largest Muslim country. This fact is obscured by constant media focus on Islam in the Middle East. A recent Indonesian Survey Institute poll stated that 9% of Indonesian Muslims support terrorism. While this number is startlingly high considering that it represents hundreds of thousands of Indonesian Muslims, it's actually very low compared to the percent of Muslims that support terrorism in the Middle East and even in the West. For example, 80% of Palestinians support terrorism and 25% of British Muslims support terrorism. The Otter has a more complete list of statistics here.

Even with such comparatively low support for terrorism, Indonesia is notorious for terrorist attacks against Christians. Just last week the BBC reported a Christian priest was the victim of an Islamic honor killing. On top of this three young Christian girls were murdered and beheaded by Muslims on the way to school. BBC News, Three Indonesian girls beheaded:
Three girls have been beheaded and another badly injured as they walked to a Christian school in Indonesia.

They were walking through a cocoa plantation near the city of Poso in central Sulawesi province when they were attacked.

This is an area that has a long history of religious violence between Muslims and Christians.

A government-brokered truce has only partially succeeded in reducing the number of incidents in recent years. Police say the heads were found some distance from the bodies.

It is unclear what was behind the attack, but the girls attended a private Christian school and one of the heads was left outside a church leading to speculation that it might have had a religious motive...

...Analysts say the militants have targeted central Sulawesi and believe that it could be turned into the foundation stone of an Islamic state.

The analysts have warned that the violence could resurface at any time.
Take note of how the liberal, pro-Muslim BBC refused to print it was a terrorist attack by Muslims.
