Three Malaysian churches have been targeted with firebombs, leaving one badly damaged, in an escalating dispute over the use of the word "Allah" by non-Muslims.


Malaysian firefighters examine the gutted administrative block of a church following an attack in Kuala Lumpur in the early hours. Three Malaysian churches have been targeted with firebombs, leaving one badly damaged, in an escalating dispute over the use of the word "Allah" by non-Muslims.
Muslim groups held protests outside 10 mosques across the nation Friday, enraged by a court ruling last week that gave permission for "Allah" to be used as a translation for the Christian God.

Police deployed officers to patrol churches and mosques after a church in suburban Kuala Lumpur was set ablaze in a midnight attack that gutted its ground floor.

Molotov cocktails were thrown into the compounds of two other churches in pre-dawn raids, but did not cause serious damage.

It's not hard to guess what God/Allah/Brahma thinks of this.

After all, religion is just an invention of greedy, xenophobic, short-sighted man.
