A stone was thrown against a church in Miri today, making it the SEVENTH ttack in three days that is linked to the “Allah” ruling which has provoked Muslim anger.

This is the first reported attack in East Malaysia where a large part of the population are Christians who worship in Bahasa Malaysia and also the ruling Barisan Nasional’s “fixed deposit” of votes and parliamentary seats in Election 2008.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein confirmed the attempt.

Prior to this attack in Miri, Sarawak:
  1. Four churches in the Klang Valley were hit by petrol bombs on Friday

  2. One church was hit last night in Taiping.

  3. A Malacca church reported it was splashed with black paint

  4. A priest in Penang had his car splashed with red paint.

  5. A convent school in Taiping was also the target of an attempt with petrol bombs found near its guardhouse overnight. Church authorities believe it was meant for the St Louis Church next door.
