Some Good News from Indonesia: Muslims to guard churches on Xmas!

JAKARTA, DECEMBER 9: Volunteers from Indonesia's largest Islamic organisation will guard churches across the world's most populous Muslim nation on Christmas amid fears of terrorist attacks on those places, the group said on Friday.

Jakarta police have said they would boost security in the capital ahead of Christmas to avoid a repeat of 2000 Christmas Eve bombings on churches in several Indonesian cities, including in the country's capital.

A youth wing affiliated with Indonesia's largest Muslim group Nahdlatul Ulama, some 40 million strong, said that members would guard churches for the coming Christmas festivities and it had persuaded youths from other religions to join the project.
Well thank fuck for the youth wing of Nahdlatul Ulama!! Power to you. Now if ANYONE's going to paradise it will be these lot!

More here... Thanks to Sunny in the comments! These movements need to be highlighted, doubled and tripled. Anything that makes the world a better place is worth shouting from the rooftops.
