muslim vs. christian

saw this article in reuters today that so contrasts christianity and islam, the “religion of peace”. east timor is a country that was brutally attacked by indonesia when suharto was indonesian dictator. about one quarter of the population was killed by the attacks and ensuing problems. indonesia is the most populous muslim country and east timor is predominantly catholic.

now suharto is laying on his deathbead and jose ramos-horta, east timor’s president, issued a public appeal to pray for suharto and to forgive him. there are 46 predominantly muslim countries. can you imagine the president of any one of those issuing a similar call?
