Malaysia seizes 15,000 copies of the Bible....

Will Obama complain about this???
Malaysian authorities have seized some 15,000 bibles imported from Indonesia because they use the word "Allah" as a translation for God which is banned here, a church leader said Thursday.

"The church uses the bible and it is part of the worshipper's life. There is no reason why it should be confiscated," said Reverend Hermen Shastri, general secretary of the Council of Churches of Malaysia.

"The bibles are used in the church," he said, dismissing suggestions by Islamic officials that they could be used to help convert Muslims who make up some 60 percent of the 27 million population.

Shastri said the latest confiscation happened in September when airport authorities in Sarawak state on Borneo island seized 10,000 copies of the Indonesian-language bibles which feature the disputed word "Allah".

Another 5,000 copies were confiscated in March, he said.

"The reason given for the detention of the Scriptures was because they contain banned words," he said.

You do a great job highlighting the injustices of Islam Fred. I just wish your RSS feed was compatible with my aggregator at canadian news reader.
