Java's last synagogue demolished as U.S. students visit on religious pluralism tour from Washington Times

'Beth Shalom, Java's only synagogue, was demolished in May after being sealed off by Islamic hard-liners since 2009, Freddy Istanto, the director of the Surabaya Heritage Society (SHS), told the Jakarta Globe on Saturday. He said it was uncertain who destroyed the building.'

But Israel is an apartheid state? All over the Islamic world, non Muslims & the wrong kind of Muslims are being discriminated against and even killed, meanwhile the world says & does nothing for fear of being labelled Islamophobic.

More on the plight of Jews here in The Washington Times but definitely not on the BBC, whose pro Islam line gets stronger every day.

The sickest sentence in that report was this:
'Diah Ariani Arimbi, dean of Airlangga University's School of Literature, said all was not lost on the trip, because the students were still able to learn "about how the residents form a pluralist and democratic community."'

Destroying a place of worship of a tiny minority community - very pluralist indeed.
